Anniversary of the Execution of The Romanovs.

In 1918, the Royal Family of Russia, as well as four others associated with the Romanov court were gunned down in a cellar in Yekaterinburg, near the Urals, in Russia.

The Bolsheviks shot, and in some re-shot The Tsar Nicholas, his Wife Tsarina Alexandra and their five children, four girls, and one boy.

If you are so inclined read The Last Tsar:The Life and Death of Nicholas the Second, I read it years ago.

I cannot help but feel profound disgust for those who killed them, Nicholas was neither good, nor bad. He wasn't much of anything at all.

An accident of birth, he was unsuited for the job, he was Kerrylike in his indecision, people did horrible things in his name, things he never would have done himself.

Contrast that with the bloodthirsty lunatics who followed him, both Lenin and Stalin wallowed in death, mass murder and starvation were tools to be used, by them, for them.

The Royal family managed to take some of their jewels with them to their death-house, diamonds were hidden in the corsets of the girls, when they were shot the first time the bullets just bounced off.

Head shots.

A terrorist drives his explosive laden vehicle into a group of Iraqi children who were committing the awful crime of taking candy from American soldiers, a little boy and young girls are gunned down in a Russian cellar.

Americans should be proud to have such enemies, they are what we are not, and can never be.

And Ted Kennedy and Dick Durbin will never make it so, no matter how hard they try.
