    Another Canadian joins the fray

    Post  kvs on Sat Sep 13, 2014 4:08 am

    Hi, I am originally from the USSR but have been living in Canada since the late 1970s. I have no military background
    but am interested in military issues and international politics. Fora such as this one are a valuable source of information
    and after lurking I decided to join up and to contribute.

    What can I say, there are so many of us with links to the ex-USSR and eastern Europe living in Canada.

    Really? Quite the opposite here in the Bay Area, which surprises me.

    There are more of us in places like Chicago and in the east in the US. In Canada, there are quite a few in the prairie provinces and of course many in Ontario.

    Just as I had thought, you are anything but American.

    There are 30,000 Russians in Frisco alone.

    So you are red skinned and speak in ancient tongues?

    Uhhh, I am unfortunately nothing but American... Excluding roots of course. In that case I am Polish-Italian-American...

    To me that is so weird... I wouldn't think that Canada would be a "hotspot" for former soviet immigrants, maybe it is the colder weather!

     - Due to where I live, I get to meet lots of Canadians. They are always great people!

    Just to be clear. My definition of American is any individual who holds a U.S passport. Just like any individual with a Russian passport is a Russian and does not necessarily have to be a Slav.

     - I was born here... My parents were born here... I hold a US passport! Thank you for once again proving to the world that the "average American" is an idiot.

    Then maybe you should stop using such phrases "Then you are anything but american."
