No problem. Pelosi has vowed to return "civility" to Washington. I'm SURE that will extend to our international friends, as well....
Odd, I thought the World was just dying for the Dems to take over. John Kerry said so.
Heck, I have a frosty relationship with the Democrats and I'm an American!
WHAT????????? Putin's fellow communist/socialists win, and HE IS ANGRY??? GMAFB.
You would think the Commies would be happy that OUR COMMIES are in power....birds of a feather.
But Russia, which opposed both the 2003 invasion of Iraq in which Rumsfeld played a key role and NATO membership for former Soviet states, was more reserved in calling for continued good ties in the military sphere.
"I can only regret that Defense Secretary Rumsfeld has resigned," news agencies quoted Defence Minister Anatoly Hrytsenko as saying on a trip to central Ukraine.
"We enjoyed good relations. He always wished Ukraine well, he liked Ukraine. All our meetings, however formal or informal, started with the same question -- how can we help Ukraine?"
Russian talking heads are correct here. The Democrats have to make sure "that Kosovo blemish" is put to bed well before the 2008 presidential cycle, or several of the Clintonites vying for office will look the terrorist stooge *to the mainstream US public" on the history there *for the first time*.
Russia has pretty valid arguments in opposing Kosovo indipendence, and can not agree to such. Expect China, Turkey and Arab OPEC countries to also block Kosovo indpendence if the Democrats force a 'cut and run' from Iraq, leaving Kurdish and Shia seperatists a free hand to transform the region, destabilising the Arab Gulf.
Should be an interesting two years as the Democrats try to avoid reality for as long a possible.
I guess I didn't realie that there was ANY cooperation on those matters...
You'd think they'd be happy now that communists control our Congress.
I don't think so. The Democrats will stop SDI, force the US to abide by unfair treaties, and not criticize Iran or North Korea. The only thing the Russians have to worry about is Human Rights, and that is only if we don't have other pressing issues to worry about (IE Iraq). Same for China.
