    Things started to change a while back. I was in Red Square in 1990, chatting with Russian locals at 11:30 at night. Ten years earlier, that may have landed all of us in jail. Glasnost was just beginning to catch hold at the time. We travelled down to Rostov-on-Don, where Russian helicopters flew above, flying both Russian and American flags underneath. BTW, don't fly Aeroflot if you value your life.

    Maybe it's a good thing for our soldiers to march in their parade, but I don't think it means we're going steady.

    What's even more amazing to me is that they've also invited Polish troops to march in the parade, that's pretty huge given the past history of relations between the two countries.
    If anyone remembers their WW2 history, the Soviets demanded that Polish troops fighting in the West not be allowed to march in any victory parade at the end of WW2, so the allies caved in and the Poles - even in the West- were not allowed to march w/ the US, Canadian, British, French, and a multitude of other forces. The fact that the Russians have now invited them to march in Moscow, is a huge step towards reconciliation.
