Yeah, dust off your Patton quotes.

My favorite:

Compared to war, all other forms of human endeavor shrink to insignificance.

As for Eastern Europe, I've got a bad feeling about this one.

Before or after the Ukraine PM accused Putin of trying to start World War three?

No. Starting when P*ssy Riot got jailed. Punks are society's canaries-in-the-coal-mine.

I think you can push the start date back to July 1918 when President Wilson sent the American North Russia Expeditionary Force to Archangel, and the American Expeditionary Force Siberia to Vladivostok (!)

My granddad had a lucky break. He was in the Middlesex Regiment, but not in a battalion despatched to Siberia, but to Germany.

Dead heavens, I can't imagine a world where Billie Joe Armstrong's voice is silenced.

Billy Joe is to punk as Gene Simmons is to death metal.

On what? Eastern Europe (or should we say Novorossiya?), the role of Punks in society or Billie Joe & Green Day?
