but you are an ignorant arse. (that is a proper brittish word)
we nolonger have a "soviet union" in the world. if we were to ever have the same type of communist state again, it would have to be called the soviet RE-union.

Feb. 17 (Bloomberg) -- The European Commission plans to warn Italy that its budget deficit may be higher than forecast, rebuking Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi before general elections in April.
Italy will breach European Union deficit rules for a fifth year in 2007 if the government fails to implement planned cuts, according to a draft document. Italy is aiming to meet its EU deadline and cut its deficit to 2.8 percent of gross domestic product in 2007 from 3.5 percent this year.
``There are significant uncertainties regarding the implementation of the 2006 budget, in particular of the sizeable expenditure savings,'' according to the ruling obtained by Bloomberg News before Feb. 22 publication in Brussels. ``Beyond 2006, there is no information on the measures envisaged and the size of the needed fiscal correction may be underestimated.''
Italy, which became the first country to benefit from last year's EU decision to relax the deficit rules, must follow through on promises to cut spending in 2006, the draft said. Berlusconi, in a bid to woo votes, has offered businesses a temporary relief by offering to cut taxes on corporate investment if the ruling coalition wins on April 9.
The country's efforts to trim the deficit have been hampered by stagnating growth. Italy's economy, Europe's fourth- largest, will likely expand 1.3 percent in 2006 after nearly stagnant growth last year, the state-funded Isae Institute said Feb. 16. Next year Italy will grow 1.4 percent, Isae said.
At an estimated 108.5 percent of GDP, Italy's debt is the highest in the euro area, close to twice the EU limit of 60 percent. Italy's debt ratio must decline ``at a more rapid pace,'' and the government should pay ``particular attention to factors other than net borrowing,'' the document said.
In a separate draft report, the commission said Spain, Europe's fifth-largest economy, has a ``sound'' budget and ``provides a good example of fiscal policies.''
``At an average annual rate of around 3.5 percent, real GDP growth in Spain was among the highest in the EU over the last decade,'' the draft report said.
The commission will also present assessments for Greece, Portugal, U.K., the Netherlands, Ireland, France, Poland, Cyprus, Lithuania and Malta next week.

Vladzo, somehow I get the feeling that you are upset at me. You have called me an @ss (dupa) over and
[[ i was angry at you because you are not interested in this thread; but you insist on posting your feeble comments here.]]
[[ by the way; what is your age, land of location, occupation or interest, and ethnic identity. i need that information for my studies at north american insitute.]]
over and, all because I made a feeble attempt to correct your grammar.
[[ my english grammer never needs correcting. and --- YES --- your attempts are feeble. ]]
[[ you would be less feeble if you mentioned the nature of my "so called" grammatical error.]]
Mr Shaukat has made a very valid observation in response to some of your comments.
[[ would you please try to mention what are those valid observations. ]]
would a Soviet-reunion be the same way as Israel is in the West!
[[ the above comment is not a question, it does not ask for any information which has been explained; your comment is only jabber-wockey which is diquised as a question.]]
[[ my advice to you is to learn english.]]
please respont even if you are feeble.
