America: Back in the USSR?
Advertisements [?]
A specter is haunting the US.
By Andrei K. Sitov, Washington Bureau Chief for ITAR-TASS News Agency of Russia.

(snip)

"Americans may not recognize their own country in my description. I know for a fact that many Russians also refuse to believe it. After all America embodies the best values and ideals that we wanted to make our own when we started our post-communist transition.
That is exactly why I'm worried about the seeming "Sovietization" of
America. If not yet a reality, it's a dangerous trend, a spooky "specter". And I think the Americans would be well advised to recognize the threat and take it seriously. They have everything they need to defeat it while safeguarding their legitimate security interests and to win back the confidence and admiration of their friends and partners around the world."
