“In the cockles of weirdness”

Mr. Putin’s outstretched hand contrasts to the cold shoulder offered President Obama four years ago, at the time of the American’s first election.

At that time, Europe was swept with Obama-mania. But the Kremlin responded to Barack Obama’s election by announcing that Russia would install missiles in Kaliningrad, Russia’s westernmost territory.
.

Analysts predict that the relationship with Russia will remain largely transactional - as in the case of American use of an air base in southern Russia as a logistics hub for flying equipment out of Afghanistan. In a contract worth hundreds of millions of dollars, the United States uses a Russian air cargo company and pays landing fees for use of the strip.

This kind of cooperation is often obscured by the official anti-Americanism that has filled Russia’s airwaves over the last year.

Vladimir Milov, an opposition activist, said the anti-Americanism is largely designed to bolster popular support for President Putin.

“You have this bizarre situation of this post-Soviet criticism of the U.S., combined with better integration and growing integration of the Russian establishment with the Western countries,” he said.

U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul has been the target of much of this official anti-Americanism. Within hours after President Obama claimed victory, Ambassador McFaul gave a series of interviews to the media where he predicted that the second Obama administration would focus on building economic ties between Russia and the United States. This year, American exports to Russia are to hit $10 billion - five times the level of 10 years ago.
.
.
.
But other analysts said President Putin wants to carve out a role for Russia as a respected regional power - not as a Western ally.

Romanovich, the Duma deputy, said he agrees with a post-election RBK television poll where 75 percent of respondents forecast that the second Obama administration would bring no major change in U.S.-Russian relations.

“I would support the opinion of 75 percent of Russians that things will remain like they were before,” Romanovich said.“Because there are still problems connected to Georgia, the eastward expansion of NATO, problems in the Middle East, and problems with Iran.”

Sorry! I assumed everyone knows why Russia was putting missiles in Kaliningrad.

obama betrayed peace, there should be no missiles from the usa at all in eastern europe, it has triggered a new arms race in china as the fear there pointed at them as well as russia. and russia has now responded.
it was a stupid idea, the us already has nuke bases in germany, turkey,italy,uk,netherlands with nukes aimed at russia, it was aclerar provoaction to russia and china and very stupid.

russia is the last bastion of pure white european demographics and Obama would like to destroy them being an african, notice theres no nukes pointed at saudi arabia,or other muslim countries or african countries who are the worlds biggest threat and least civilized places, cause obama was a muslim himself and has a black african father, I dread the next 4 years under obama.
in fact there should be no conflct at all between us and russia, they are both white nations, both christian countries, both now democracies, so why has not the us changed its policy? ive shown you one of the reasons for sure

More of the Polish public rejects the Missle Shield than Supports it.

The Polish daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita conducted a survey which showed that 48 percent of Poles believed the decision was good for Poland, while 31 percent had the opposite view.

Why do so many stupid idiots on here confuse a Government for the People?

Anyways I heard from a Polish person in Poland that President Komorowski isn't very Polish in roots & has roots of traitors of Poland such as the Saxon traitor of Poland Stanislaw August Poniatowski.

Time for Obama to go to Russia, and get his walking orders for the next 4 years. All that flexibility going to waste. Soon the U N will come for your guns.

Of course. Russia wants to rule the world and it will start by attacking Warsaw in a missile blitzkrieg but first it has to strike a deal with Germany. That was the whole idea of taking out the entire Polish leadership in Smolensk. It was the first stage of preparation for the final attack. Poland has everything Russia wants, like delicious Polish kielbasa instead of that Russian stuff that's stuffed with sawdust and ground up bones. Besides, the Russians think that Catholicism is a wayward cult and that the Pope is the devil, so they will consider it a holy war crusade.

What are you going on about? THe Obama administration is not after your guns. In truth the policy is that every drug cartel in Mexico should buy directly from...

Hard to imagine a more gun friendly administration.

Then why is Obama so hot to trot to sign on with the UN small arms treaty?

"Let me get reelected first, he said; then I’ll have a better chance of making something happen. On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,” Barak Obama can be heard telling Medvedev, apparently referring to incoming Russian president — and outgoing prime minister — Vladi­mir Putin.

“This is my last election,” Obama interjects.“After my election, I have more flexibility.”

The USA is no longer a western nation. We are in our post European stage. Obama has little interest in NATO or the Russian Federation one way or the other.

Not at all.

Like the UN treaty, it was a back door attempt to disarm law abiding Americans.

My God!
People overseas. When you stop being an idiot? Excuse me for being rude.
Where do you get this nonsense? Which rule the world? We have a huge country, huge amounts of resources, zamli, people, talent. We are completely self-sufficient country. We absolutely do not care about the impact of the world.
 It is sufficient for one. Do not meddle us with your orders, HEREUNDER, homilies. Stay away from NATO to the borders. And do not tell the tale of a missile threat from Iran. And so you have to install missiles in Europe. It is clear that this is nonsense first grade. We have removed the troops from around the world, closed military bases. What more do you want, the confusion?
What Catholicism and the Pope? About it, no one remembers. Pray as you like. Only we pray as we choose.
Mind your own states and do not climb to us with their stupid customs. And we will not touch you.
Here you have the brains foul, it's crazy.
Sorry for being rude.

Yes, Washington is supplying Mexican drug lords with arms.

While Jew Tarzan Fainberg supplied the Colombian drug cartels with submarines, helicopters & arms.

Yes, it all seems pretty supportive of Jewish power & rule.

A New World Order of Jewish rats running amok.

The head Jew rat seems to be that Jew George Soros who wants to create a New World Order with China.

Small Town America UGX told me before he was swept out to sea. Then that gun guy on here that has his TV locked onto Fox and weejees with Charlton Heston and is afraid of N. Korean ICBMs with nukes on them confirmed it. Haven't you seen Red Dawn II yet?

Why are you such a nancy pants?

"U.S. officials have acknowledged privately that the treaty under discussion would have no effect on domestic gun sales and ownership because it would apply only to exports."

Of course, it might become troublesome to export arms to the Syrian salafists but that's what covert black ops are for. ;-)
