Posted on 04/03/2014 10:47:10 AM PDT by goldstategop
A top Russian official has accused the US of "childish tantrums" in its response to the annexation of Crimea, and suggested that American politicians practise yoga and watch sitcoms to help chill out.
"Clearly, the US leadership is really annoyed, and cannot come to terms with the new situation, which has arisen in large part due to the deliberate line taken by the US and its allies in Europe to prepare anti-Russian forces to take power in Ukraine," said deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, in an interview with Interfax.
"Trying to demonstrate how unhappy it is with the exercise of free will by the population of Crimea and the decisions we took related to it, Washington is ruining contacts even in places where continuing dialogue is in their own interests.

The Russians are improving in the use of slang. What a hoot!
They should tell 0bama to reset hisself.
Chill out... as in getting ready to serve revenge cold? Check.
Power has to have a heart or in the long term it goes down to hell. This is why the humongous charade to make it look like all Crimea asked to be part of Russia.
A blast listening to this:
“The situation is turning into a joke when, for example, meetings between meteorologists are cancelled,” said Ryabkov.
“What can we advise our American colleagues? They should get more fresh air, do yoga, eat healthily, maybe watch some sitcoms on television.
“This is better than getting themselves and others all worked up when they know very well that the train has already departed and that childish tantrums, tears and hysterics will not help things.”
They’re laughing at us. This is what Zero has brought the United States to. This is a “reset” alright.
Chill out, it’s just a small piece of territory. And the rest of them are Nazis, anyway.
They are indeed laughing at us. They loathe weakness, even in adversaries.
He probably should have taken things more seriously.
Could they be goading the US into doing something stupid or encouraging Ukraine or its thugs to do something stupid and then they'll be justified to take a corridor in eastern Ukraine to connect Crimea to Russia?
Yoga and chill out.
What Putin really said to mac daddy was: “ Pink bra and Pink Panties and visit your favorite bath house”.
This shows you exactly how seriously they - and the rest of the world - take us now.
Obama has reduced the US to a laughing stock. We are perceived worldwide now as being powerless, concerned only with the bizarre combination of homosexual and Muslim “issues,” and consciously weakening ourselves economically to the point that we will be about at the level of South Africa (if even that good) before too long.
Yoga is easier in those loose mommy jeans...
It is wise to examine this tactic and consider it among all the others.
It is also wise to consider the exact opposite situation, that Obama is tactically trying to goad Russia (Putin) into doing something stupid so the world will see Obama's actions as justified.
The US and EU fund and arm Christian slaughtering Al Qaeda foreign mercenaries to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria. Is it such a stretch to believe that the US and EU would instigate the overthrow of the legitimate Ukrainian government?
Well, Washington also didn’t cotton to foreign entanglements. The Barbary Pirates got engaged only when they were menacing trade to the new USA.
That said, technology has made the world so small that Russia might as well be at our doorstep. If isolationism made sense at one time, it doesn’t now.
Anti-Russian means not wanting to be assimilated into Russia. I guess that’s some big crime.
Sorry, B.S. don’t fly in Moscow.
