    Radio “Belarus” does not work anymore.”… (sigh)… Some of my fondest childhood memories were listening to English service Radio Moscow on a shortwave radio (complete with excoriating stories about the U.S. genocide of American Indians and the miscarriage of justice for Leonard Peltier).

      U.S. genocide of native Americans? Don’t you mean the Italian, Spanish, English, Dutch, German, French settlers just to name a few genocide?

      I have not thought about Leonard Peltier in many years. As I recall his case was so full of discrepancies it defied rational belief.

      Yeah him and the AIM movement, tragic really.

      I used to hear a lot about the subject from a friend in Texas, my friend was a BlackFoot and he had a lot to say on the subject.

        Hello, OldBikr. You know I have a strange sense of humor; but I really did listen to Radio Moscow, which was full of propaganda (of course!); I’m really just a history geek; you know I don’t take myself seriously…
