Well, although it meant to be a bit of humor I just can't resist
to make some comments.

Your mention about the war looks kind of ridiculous. It was 1776, right?
But we, here in Russia, too well remember 1941, 22 June, which is a bit
closer to nowadays. I haven't seen both my grandfathers, which were killed
under Moscow, we have lost more than 20 millions of people in that war.
What now? That's a history. There are particular persons to blame and
to praise. What people, and especially particular language have to do
with all the things we are talking about?
