Putin US in its place


Hats off to you Vlad. You have the balls to say what a lot of people tell the cowboys but they don’t bother to listen.

What Putin also did in the process was to give Robert Gates some work to do as the new Pentagon chief. The American media was quick to take the nationalistic line i response to Putin’s vituperative salvo. But Washington Post has an honest, thought-provoking take here, that I found interesting. Patrick Buchanan has a point too.

Meanwhile, Putin cuts a swath through the petroleum belt of the Middle East, shaking hands and getting unprecedented warm welcome from the oil nations from Saudi Arabia to Jordan. His verbal attack on America’s foreign policy though, seems to strike not just a single chord, but many, in Europe.
