    Conscripted? Not likely. The word is that he is inelligible given he has no experience in Russian Armed services.

    Life as a Russian citizen, or life in an American prison? I'd probably opt for Russia, too.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I suppose Gerard Depardieu and Steven Seagal are glad about being too old to be selected to fight.

    Alas, Depardieu now lives in Belgium and Seagal is a neighbor of Joe in SoCal

    OOPS! I read that as "Seagal is Joe"... Sorry....
    Bald, ugly, not too bright but incredibly sexy in an unattractive sort of way....

    May it profit him.

    I lost respect for him long ago.

    Edward Snowden needed to leave Russia. I also have lost respect for him.

    He should have pleaded his case in open court.
    Without friends none of this is possible.
