Despite Russia selling weapons to Iran that can be used to destroy American ships in the Persian Gulf;
Despite Russia giving US military secrets to Iraq during the Gulf War that were used to kill American soliders;
Despite Russia’s abolishing the election of regional governors and now local mayors in favor of Kremlin appointment;
Despite Russia’s ressurection of the Soviet National anthem, written to glorify the mass-murderer Josef Stalin;
Despite all that, as the New York Times reports, President Bush remains Putin’s best friend, refusing to boycott the G-8 meeting this summer in St. Petersburg and doing NOTHING so far to retaliate for Russia’s ourageous conduct.
Isn’t it ironic? President Bush, who Russia hates because of the attack on Iraq, is Russia’s best friend.
Can you just imagine who Russia’s enemies are?
As reported by The Washington Post today, not only has Russia given U.S. military secrets to Iraq which cost American solidiers their lives, but now Russia is selling missile technology to Iran which can be used to sink U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf!
Russia is clearly baiting the U.S. into a new cold war, one it cannot possibly surive (the USSR lost the cold war, and it was much stronger than Russia today).
As the The Post reported yesterday, Russians are even trying to blame this new cold war on the United States itself! It’s the neo-Soviet Union!
I just wonder what Russians would say if America gave Russian military secrets and U.S. missile technology to Chechnya! Come to think of it, I wonder how long it will be before George Bush Jr. is out and America responds in just that way!
