Russia Pushes Reset Button… Won’t Extradite Edward Snowden
Gateway ^ | June 25, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/26/2013 6:22:13 PM PDT by george76

In March 2009 Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama Adminstration was going to push the reset button with the Russians. Unfortunately, the administration bungled their delivery and spelled out “overcharge” rather than “restart” on their button.

...

This week the Russians pushed their own reset button. Moscow rejected US demands for the extradition of NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

If I were Putin, I'd have refused Snowden's extradition just because of how ignorant, stupid, and pathetic Obama's commentary on Ho Chi Min being a big fan of our nation's founding fathers and especially Jefferson!

Stupid people in power need to be punished in a very public way.

Snowden should consider Russia as a place to live. If Texas didn’t exist, I’d likely be in Russia now. Russia vs any South or Central American country is a hell of an easy choice.

Given his KGB background, I would suspect that when Putin hits something, it stays hit.

This should put to rest any notion that relations between Russia and the USA will be better with Democrats in charge. Russia is just as hostile to the USA as when Republicans were in charge. Russia’s hostility to the USA had nothing to do with President Bush, they are just as hostile to us now with Obama bending over backwards and forwards to please his comrade KGB Putin. Russia will be America’s enemy no matter who is in charge of the American government.

Putin would never criticize Ho Chi Minh. Putin said that what America did in Viet Nam was worse than Stalin’s purges.

The date on this is June 25. Things have changed since then. Putin is thinking it over, hasn’t told the US to stuff it, yet.

They showed they respected us by attacking our ally Georgia and exterminating and ethnically cleansing the Georgian people to punish them for being our friend?

No. They showed they HATE us and will murder anyone who befriends us.

Honestly, I think Reagan could have dealt with Putin. He would respect him and Putin would respect him.

I don’t think Bush or Obama were able to fully understand and deal with Putin. He should be in our corner for the most part, and they both drove him away.

It all started with that school that was taken over by terrorists. I didn’t think we handled that well at all.

We could have made a lot of headway after that, and we mostly let it fall flat. That was a massive mistake IMO.

If Putin cared about Serbia, he wouldn’t have pulled all Russia troops from Serbia and abandoned them to their fate. Yeltsin cared about Serbia and Putinists do nothing but curse Yeltsin. Why? Because Yeltsin destoyed Putin’s beloved Soviet Union which Putin said was a catastrophe.

Being the USA’s enemy and supporting our terrorist enemies is not in Russia’s best interests. Putin does not care at all about Russia’s interests, only his own interests. Putin has robbed the Russian people and stolen their freedom. He has acted against his own people’s best interests.

You guys are still talking about that orange clown, Soros puppet Sockavillain and what Putin did to him??

As cool as that was, the really BIG celebration is going to be when Serbian and/or Russian tanks roll back into Kosovo, and that day is coming.

Or does anybody actually believe that George Soros could be on the right side of anything???

No that day is not coming.

Putin abandoned Serbia. The Serbs got the same reward as every other country that is friends with Russia, a knife in the back. That's why the Serbs now want to join the EU. They know that Russia's friendship is worthless.

Impotent Putin could not even overthrow Saakashvili, who is still in power today.

Russia does not have gay pride marches in their army and they know a Marxist when they see one.

The central focus of the US State Department for the last five years has been some kind of a fággot jihad...

The attempt by our own State Department to steal the Russian elections for their comrades in the Russian Communist Party through non-profit NGOs was soundly beaten by Vladimir Putin (love him or hate him).

This is why Russia cracked down on non-profit groups. The homosexual attack on the Orthodox Church by the queer punk band Pússy Riot, who were on the payroll of State Department funded NGOs, is another reason. Lesbian weirdo Madonna was also flown in as a provocateur...

While Leon Puñettas was busy with gay pride celebrations at the Pentagon, he forgot there was a war, a U.S. Ambassador was murdered and Navy Seals were completely abandoned to their deaths... all because everyone was being so fúcking gay...

Serbian government is ready for the start of accession talks with the EU - July 26, 2013 - Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic said in a meeting with British Ambassador to Serbia Michael Davenport on Friday that the Serbian government is ready for the start of accession talks with the EU, while the ambassador said that London supports Serbia’s EU path and reforms, Tanjug reported.

After the meeting, Dacic said Serbia’s most important foreign policy goal is EU membership.

“The formation of a negotiating team and the necessary capacities which will be engaging in the process is under way.

Stabilizing our economy and finances, creating jobs and attracting investors is the government’s primary goal,” said Dacic, according to a release issued by the government’s press office.

He especially stressed the government’s commitment to reforms, because the goal is for Serbia to emerge from the negotiating process as a successful EU member state.
