What are russians planning?
« on: June 24, 2013, 10:57:23 AM »
There is a growing number of russians in Finland. They are keen to buy land which is possible for foreigners in Finland. I can't blame them, because who wouldn't want to leave Russia? It's a bad country, lots of crime etc. Finland in contrast is peaceful and it's rare that you even run into a criminal situation. Also I think it's easy to come in Finland, because we don't have strict policy to forbid foreigners just moving in. Anyone can do that. It's just that one day there will be no finnish people here, only russians and somalis.

Surely they must understand that it will then be like Russia, so what they are going to do then? They need to look at the mirror and ask why Russia sucks so much. You can't just invade every country, because it doesn't solve the original problem.

For more on this issue, check out:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sneetches_and_Other_Stories

In particular I would recommend "The Sneetches," as well as "What Was I Scared Of?" (The latter sometimes erroneously referred to as "Pale Green Pants.")

We should probably both read "The Zax."

Agree, Sneetches is a fine documentary, relevant in its time, and as Krice's post demonstrates, relevant today.

Reality check. In Russia the police is so corrupted that people have to keep a camera on their car recording their driving so that they can later prove that they didn't drive too fast or whatever. How much a country can suck if you need to do something like that? Another funny story is when russians come in Finland and they have guns shooting rubber bullets (and they have also other weapons). You can't be armed with stuff like that in Finland so they are taken away in border, but russians don't realize it, because it's normal in their country to carry weapons in case someone attacks. It's crazy, but that's how things are in Russia.

What do you do In Finland when someone attacks? You kindly ask them to stop or what?

We don't have that kind of culture where everyone can be a potential enemy which is the case in countries like Russia and USA. If someone attacks he is usually mentally ill or something like that. Of course if someone would attack me I would grab him and put him on ground, and then call officials to take him away. You have to understand that we are more advanced as human beings than let's say russians, who are primitive. We don't attack, rob, kill etc. people just like that, like russians do.

I think it's much easier when you own a gun. Programmers don't put bad guys on ground unless they know judo or something like that. But if they train judo, they don't have time for programming. That's it, programmers can't put anybody on ground.

If my memory serves right, Finland was one of the few countries which actually successfully stopped an invasion attempt of the russian army.

Some Finns even can look at you in ways so that feel a strong urge to run away screaming.

Quote
The Soviets possessed more than three times as many soldiers as the Finns, thirty times as many aircraft, and a hundred times as many tanks. The Red Army, however, had been crippled by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin's Great Purge of 1937, reducing the army's morale and efficiency shortly before the outbreak of the fighting.

[...]

Because of these factors, and high morale in the Finnish forces, Finland was able to resist the Soviet invasion for far longer than the Soviets expected.

Hostilities ceased in March 1940 with the signing of the Moscow Peace Treaty. Finland ceded 11% of its pre-war territory and 30% of its economic assets to the Soviet Union.

Edit: I'm not from Finland myself.

But if that for some reason happens, we can sit on top of them and they have no chance of getting back up  :P

Finnish courts continue stealing children from russian mothers. The only thing i don't understand - why are Russia don't do anything more serious then sending armed tourists buying lands.

Yes it was. So I'm wondering what has happened to Finns.
1939 - resisting Russian tanks.
2013 - crying because some Russians came with toy guns.
