Alexander Milinkevich Rocks!

I'm liking Belarus' oppositon presdiential candidate more every day. I think the thing I like most about him is his blunt language tinted with hint of sarcasm. For example, when Belarus' KGB cheif said that people who take to the streets in protest of the coming rigged election will be charged with terrorism, Milinkevich said "We wish the KGB leaders success in their fight against terrorism. We ask only that they do not confuse terrorists with peaceful citizens who will peacefully protest on March 19 against fraud, fear and humiliation"

On another occasion, he again poked fun at the KGB- "They're frightening us with the KGB and explosions. This is completely stupid. We will come with flowers and stick them in the shields of the (riot police)."

I've heard a lot of people say that Milinkevich is a soft spoken academic, but whether he does it softly or not, he's great at telling it like it is.
