also... the precedent of making monuments out of captured weapons is long... let us not forget, the Siegesäule in Berlin, made from captured cannon from the wars leading to German unification.

as a collector, i cringe at the potential loss of awesome **** with the monument the russians want to do... as an historian, im, well, kind of ok with it. making monuments from the relics of defeated foes has been a part of history forever.
