With the gradual approach of May 9 and the Moscow "celebrations", at scb the discussions continue... more or less as they have done for the past ten years or more. Some of the posters are new, but most, including yours truly, are not. For all its undeniable eccentricities (they can be seen as lovable ones), the group has served as a valuable meeting-point for views not only on specifically Baltics-related issues, but also on the whole question of Russia and its relation to Western Europe, and indeed the West in general. There is also some discussion of political and military strategic issues, which even include such topics as the Middle East, Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond.
