Спросите у жены моей

Ask my wife"

E. Evtushenko

Do Russians Ever Want A War

This year May 9 is the 65th anniversary of the Victory over Germany in 1945. It is also a Mother's Day. The US is very proud with its record of women emancipation. This century is proclaimed to be the Century of Women. Empowerment is the word. You can be a mom and hot at the same time. The most popular show Army Wives features a set of hot babes who are all we want from our females, no questions asked. They are nice, sexy, kind, motherly, strong, supportive and photogenic so much that none of us can doubt their superiority. They are Hillary, GI Jane and Condi at the same time and the only thing which is missing is Margaret Thatcher in thong. Oprah will emerge with the audience full of half- witted females and the simple act of, say, refraining from drunken sex will be elevated to the realm of eternal achievement. Precious will rule and Dream Girls will dance accompanied by some silly song like "I love the Oil spilling"' while successful chromium-clad women will praise each other on the shows or exchange corny jokes. It will be Mother's Day.

There is a Russian saying that War is no female but Victory surely is. If there is something uniting all the Russians born after 1941, no matter where we live and what we do-that is that we all are Children of the Great Victory and descendants of those women who lived through the 1941-1945 war, fought in it, survived it, worked at the factories, just waited and took care of the children, those who died- whether from bullets, hunger, diseases, malnutrition, childbirth, bombs, in gas chambers, in concentration camps, from rapes, under tanks, poisoned, maimed by dogs, frozen to death, burned alive with their children, etc. We are their descendants even if they were little girls and never had been kissed before death. We are their progeny. They are our mothers.
