Paper 3

For paper 3, I’m going to do an analysis on this article from the Onion:,35428/

It’s about Russia “invading” the Crimean region, and US citizens reactions to it, or rather, their lack thereof. It does a good job of encapsulating the general feel that America seems to take towards Russia nowadays; that of a worn out sober friend just trying to last through the party while their hammered friend does one stupid thing after another.

I plan to dissect what it says about Russia, and the fact that Americans are ignorant, apathetic, or both.
