I am not that young anymore. In just a few years I will attain the dreaded age of 30. So when I see that Russia’s de facto state party has a “youth group” that likes to spend its time throwing darts at a portrait of Toomas Hendrik Ilves, I take notice.
United Russia’s youth group demonstrated Friday against Estonia’s decision to remove a monument to Soviet soldiers who fought the Germans in World War II, saying it showed disrespect for those who died fighting Nazism.
About 100 protesters stood outside the Estonian Embassy, throwing darts at a photograph of Estonia’s president.
I guess every country needs its enemies. But the idea of tiny Estonia being enemy enough to evoke ire among Russian teenagers is cause for concern. Haven’t they got better things to do? Discoteques to attend? Ladies to romance? Careers to pursue? Guys, take it from me. Get a life. Do something more useful with your time then fight proxy battles for Putin’s state party. Getting into a dick-waving contest with Estonia is a waste of your time. You only get one life to live. Don’t waste yours.
