Obama I know to be a light weight in international affairs.  Frankly I expected a bit more from rooty Poot.  First he calls a US secretary of state a liar then a day later says the Brits basically don't matter - and did so in a most childish and insulting way.  Where did the adults go?

Nice dig at the pretentiousness of Cam, I think. Could've done with someone to talk as bluntly as that when Blair was doing his messianic bit.
And again, as so often the case, Observers are so confused by a world Leader with a sense of humour, if a sardonic one, that they don't recognise it when they see it. He was obviously being tongue in cheek about his mate Abramovich.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Bless his little cotton socks...I mean, we are such a small and insignificant island that he felt the need to talk about us and act like we'd just stole his toys and he's pretending to not care. What a tool.

? You mean he wanted war, and it was Cameron's Humiliation that prevented it?


This thread might be fun for all the outraged indignant responses we're going to get.

Personally speaking,I think that all the players in this unfolding comedy of politics are saying some pretty dumb things.

No I wasn't implying that at all.

I mean I expect Russia to milk this whole situation down to the very last drop. Lets face it they have this deluded idea that they really are on par with China and the US when it comes to the world stage. So they will continue to milk this whole situation until the point is reached that Assad is longer of use, then they will adopt a different tactic. In the meantime though, how about a bit of decorum from representatives of world leaders.

Well, Putin's wrong about one thing - Obama cares about Britain to the extent that the UK is a convenient "attack poodle" to put across US policy in a show of being "objective".

Apart from that, he dead on the money.

I guess he forgot about the Convoys supplying Russia with food, tanks, and other military equipment to stop little "H"in his tracks during WW2, but its about time Putin, put in a bit more effort to be friendly, maybe he's still P****d off about losing all the satellite states of the former Russky empire.

If Assad falls then he would lose his Naval base.

Putin wants to be able to use poison gas himself if Russia has internal trouble: the same can be said of China.  This will make a precedent for them.

Of course....but you can be all those things without acting like a 9yr old too. Well, unless you're Putin's representative apparently....

The point being that he represents a country embroiled in a very serious situation on a global level and he's acting like a kid in school.  It worries me a bit, frankly.

Putin is a bit creepy in my eyes.  He's like old school KGB.  I don't know what he's capable of.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.
