A Latvian friend of mine that served in the Soviet Army once told me that all the peoples the Russians had sucked into their empire hated them and were waiting for a chance at payback.

I hope your Latvian friend feels the same way about the Latvian Communists who were part of the Soviet Empire and war machine.

And the Georgian Commies
and the German Commies
and the Ukrainian Commies
And the Jewish commies
and the Polish Commies etc. etc.

"A Latvian friend of mine that served in the Soviet Army once told me that all the peoples the Russians had sucked into their empire hated them and were waiting for a chance at payback."

So I discovered quite by accident. I was having dinner in Singapore several years ago when I met a couple of Ukrainian engineers from a merchant ship that had just docked. It was a friendly meeting until I committed the faux pas of speaking what little Russian I knew to them. The reply was icy stares and stone-cold silence.
