I don't see where Kargalitsky characterized Yuschenko as being "rabidly
anti-American". His point is that the differences over the Ukraine have
nothing to do with class conflict. Putin and his surrogates in the Ukraine
are for capitalism and so is the USA and their surrogates. I think 6 months
or so ago there were some illusions from the usual gang of Slavophiles that
Putin was some kind of pro-working class populist. The idiot Chris Doss who
hangs out on Henwood's list and pretends to be some kind of expert on
Russian affairs made a big deal out of the fact that Putin was in the KGB
once. This was supposed to be analogous, I guess, to some of Chavez's top
aides having a background in the guerrilla struggle. What a joke.
