Russian Spies

Post by nakatago » Wed, 30 Jun 2010 11:52 am

I'm sure by now, you've heard about the 11 Russian spies arrested in the US this weekend. The idea was these spies would become so Americanized that no one would suspect them to be working for Russian intelligence. When arrests were made, neighbors were awestruck; remarking that the spies were living very American lives. In some reports, moreover, it has been mentioned that such spies are also deployed in other yet-undisclosed countries.

So, to the random Caucasian you bump into while walking down the street, do you think...? Or how about some of the posters here? Do they have to be Caucasian/Russian-looking? What if some are Asians?

:o :o :o

PS

One spy, alias Anna Chapman, apparently became an internet celebrity for being a hottie.
:cool:

Well, Siberians have Asian features.They can easily pass off as Northern Chinese or Korean.

No surprise the spies weren't detected, compare terrorists; one reason it is so difficult to detect them is they live lives much the same as anybody else. In addition often being well-mannered people; people aren't suspicious of that that 'nice person' that lives next door - a well known trick by deviants.

There is more Anna Chapman stuff than that floating around the internet. If coarse it will be pretty hard to find while in Singapore.

The term "Asian features" is very broad. You better say "Oriental features"
