coming soon: Belarus

In the first installment of our hard-hitting series on euro countries that are totally fucked up, undercover agent ADT infiltrates Belarus, the last dictatorship in Europe. ADT has travelled the world and currently lives in the Middle East. We have had the fortune of serving our country on joint operations over the last few years, and despite the nefarious elements encountered in Eastern Europe, we always came out on top. (We had guns.) Unfortunately we never made it to Belarus, because they wouldn't let us in, and because, as our commander told us, "you look too Jewish." I'm still not sure what he meant by that, but it's a shame because apparently this country is dirt cheap, way interesting, slightly sketchy, and full of hot chicks! ADT, you get all the good jobs!

Installment the first to be posted later today, so keep calm, people.

Meanwhile, for those of you looking for a primer on the world of Lukashenko, there's some useful info at this virtual guide , plus Belarus Inside, and then there's the continually updated Belarus News feed. Here is a (the?) Belarus blog. Finally, check out Indymedia Belarus, which I'm pretty sure is illegal in that country, which effectively means that people posting on this site are risking their lives to tell you the truth (check out the State Terror section on the left menu).

So do some browsing and you'll hear first-hand from ADT in two shakes of a Mink's tail. Or a Minsk's tail? Ooooooh!!!!
