The “Supreme Council” how it was called (not Parliament how you call it) was NOT ELECTED, it was formed according to old Soviet rules, i.e. self-appointed. Yeltsin wanted to replace it with a Parliament which would be elected by the people on general elections (same as it is now), but the self-appointed usurpers in the “Supreme Council” obviously did not want to go peacefully. So Yeltsin had to use force. And the prove the people did not want that “Council” to rule them anymore, was that nobody protected them, which allowed Yeltsin to disband them.

I’m just thankful that the world didn’t end in fire like so many predicted. What distresses me, however, is that the Cold War mentality still exists in America. I don’t like that Russia and America have strained relations. America needs to respect Russia and her decisions – the two must learn to become better friends.

The USSR first collapsed economically due to military over spending (causing chronic stagnant living standards). Now the US could be paralyzed in debt for years -or possibly worse- because it continued to outspend the same as in the Cold War. Not even their Chinese creditors would’ve believed that in 1990.

Before the collapse, there was nothing left of the generally weak Soviet economy. People sent to camps were all the intelligent and self-thinking people who were “traitors” of the occupation. And KGB was seen everywhere, lot’s of scientists, politicians and open-minded people were regular visitors of their basemetns. Some came back, many got “lost”.

Nothing, what you think you know probably came from Wikipedia. I grew up in the last years of the USSR (the mid and late 80’s) and no we didnt need “internal passports” in our own country, the people sent to the camps were traitors (spies and their likes) and political prisoners. And this might interest you, until the August coup, when a state of emergency was declared, we never even saw the “feared and awful” KGB.

How much longer can it suppress it’s own people? It uses the US the way Hitler used the Jews. To generate a sense of nationalism and control behavior. China will have another revolution. It will be the people rising up against central authority to demand freedom, the right to have more than one kid, the right to vote, and the right to be a capitalist consumer. The Chinese people want more than their government is willing to give them. Bet on a similar revolution taking place in China that did in Russia in 1991. Let’s just hope it is bloodless.
