Why is it that Vladimir Putin seems to care more about America than Barack Obama?
I wonder if Japan would accept him?
Putin doesn’t want any more CIA wrecker sabotage of his space program.
Putin and obamas interests are the same in this case. Putin wants to keep the issue alive as it is embaressing to the US. obama wants to keep it alive because it is a distraction from the reality that we are living in a police state.
This clown is reminding me more all the time of Lee Harvey Oswald.
