Poor Russia. Its population is declining, its power waning, and everyone's drinking themselves into a stupor. And one of the branches of its once-fearsome military, who stopped Hitler at Stalingrad and Napoleon in his tracks, is now so strapped for cash that it's feeding soldiers dog food in an attempt to make ends meet.

That's the bombshell allegation of an ex-major official Igor Matveyev, according to Reuters. He was with the Interior Ministry, the part of Russia's security forces charged with domestic affairs in the world's largest country. Matveyev was recently fired for, he says, making a video plea to Putin and his puppet Medvedev urging they investigate rampant corruption in the Interior Ministry--worst of all which was the dog food feast.

"It's embarrassing to say but soldiers here were fed dog food. It was fed to them as stew," Matveyev told Reuters, with the agency adding that "dog food labels were covered up with labels reading 'premium quality beef.'

If the allegations are true, let's at least hope Interior Ministry officials let their troops wash down the meal with buckets of vodka...

Take along the ingredients label form the dog food bag so you can speak about changes that may be necessary. A dull coat, for example, may need a diet that is higher in essential fatty acids.

After some testing, I've come up with a method and recipe substances that works really well. I'm sluggish and to forget things so to make the hen for the dog meals I just take a freezing whole hen out of the refrigerator and put it immediately into a slow cooker and let it make for the day.

If it is true that the troops were really fed dog food then it means that the troops cant smell the rot in the military.

The Russian military, corruption and dire economic times. Sounds like a trailer for a new end of the world movie. It seems they were fed dog food and told it was a stew! It took about thirty days for anyone to notice! How good can their food be looking at this? The clue was the troops started to howl at the moon, dig fox holes constantly, were burying their guns and took an affinity to riding in trucks, jeeps, cars, anything with a motor so they could hang their head out.

But, then, Russian troops don't have to read in the newspaper about what criminals they are for serving their country, the kind of articles written (at least in the U.S.) by cowards in comfortable chairs. Dog food? I guess we all have a cross to bear.
