Russian official mocks Navy Yard shooting
The Washington Times ^ | September 16, 2013 | Ben Wolfgang

Posted on 09/16/2013 8:30:36 AM PDT by Biggirl

A Russian official blasted “American exceptionalism” in a tweet Monday morning, saying the deadly shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard confirms the worst about the U.S. “A new shootout at Navy headquarters in Washington — a lone gunman and 7 corpses. Nobody’s even surprised anymore,” tweeted Alexey Pushkov, a member of the Russian parliamentary foreign affairs committee.

Its never a good idea to send out smug or critical messages during a shock or tragedy.

It never has the intended effect for individuals, or for nations.

Hold your vodka, comrade. We don't know yet whether or not the shooter(s) subscribe to the concept of American Exceptionalism.

He (they) might be DemocRAT(S).

Islamic terrorists may have been in play here, nobody knows the full story yet. Hey Putin, what about your moving theater in Moscow and those three hundred plus kids your Chechan’s killed? You ever go in and do anything about that? Just go and play half naked with your animals and we can attended to our business.

Here’s an important point on diplomacy. When something tense is going on in Israel, the Israeli PM often asks lower officials not to comment. As far as I know all parties usually comply as the media suddenly goes dark on that subject re. lower officials quoting. This makes controlling the message much easier.

It bothers me that McCain and others have responded to Putin. Even though I don’t like him and I think he’s totally incompetent, it is Obama’s job to make any response; not anybody else. And, unless Putin is trying to piss off America, he would be well advised to quietly ask lower officials to tweet about the weather and leave handling America to him.

Not even bothering to hide their distain.

America will be openly mocked as long as he is sitting the in the White House. Nobody would have dared say this if George Bush was still President.

He was mocking America and those who think America is an exceptional country. President for Life Putin and his cronies are quite overjoyed to have a nitwit in the White House and howling collaborators who admire an autocrat.

I wonder if the guy is referring to American base personnel who are not responsible for base security not being allowed to carry guns. I think that Clinton-era rule was dumb, but I wonder whether other armed forces do it differently.

There is just a deep sense of loss and frustration. Not just this shooting but in our leaderless movement to turn this country around. People are just sarcastically venting because in reality we shed real tears knowing what is happening to our warriors not only here but worldwide.

Send them on missions, then de-fund the missions and leave them to die.

I agree. I’m becoming disgusted with the knee jerk defense of this former commie and President for Life, Putin. I’m amazed that a self-serving autocrat is applauded just because he’s getting the better of our man child president. When the Liberals were fine with Hugo Chavez blasting President Bush, I hated it. I hate now that people who are allegedly pro-American can be charmed by a cruel former KGB thug.
