The KGB raises past fears in the Russians as does the CIA in America.
  I was in Beijing back in 1979 and all the spies would congregate at the one Hotel, which I cannot for the life of me remember it's name.  The Russians had one section, the Americans another, the French another, the Brits another.  At the time it was the only place one could get a decent meal and a drink. 
   Does anyone know how great the Chinese wine and beer is.  Well it is.  Apparently the Germans went there after the war and taught them. Those were the days when all came in from out of the cold to share stories!

The Russians, as people, are great fun to be around. I've never met one 
that I did not like and the Russian people certainly had no interest in 
conquering anyone. It was those nutcases in the Kremlin who wanted to get them 
killed for some point of ideology, sort of like Americans, who truly have no 
interest in being killed for Democracy, especially other countries' Democracy but 
we have these idiots in Washington...

Funny story about Russians.

A few years back I acquired a small Soviet army medal which, on its face, 
has the inscription that translates "Smolensk, city of Soviet Power." Somlensk 
was a major KGB center. Well, late one night after going to a club we 
frequent, my wife and I were in a restaurant north of Chicago and I had on a black 
shirt with the medal pinned to the pocket and a small sword pendant that I 
wear at that club, for some arcane reason we don't have to go into here.

At a far table were a group of young Russians. You could tell because they 
were speaking in their native tongue. Anyway, they went to pay their bill 
and passed by our table, took one look at my medal and pendant, thought KGB!!! 
and a couple of them literally gasped and they paid and were out of there so 
fast you would think Stalin's Ghost had come to give me the Order of Lenin 
with Tractor Clusters for winning the battle of snot production!
