Russia back to its old true self again.  Are we entering into another Cold War phase? 
And what exactly does this Hugo Chavez idiot think he's going to accomplish?

Mr Putin seems intent on a new round of empire building.

 Looks like our southern neighbors are gearing up huh? When they all get together it'll make the cuban missle crisis look like playday at an elementary school ! Russia does'nt want any part of screwing with us ... so they'll just use others to do it for them . Looks like we're going to have to kick some butt and soon or are we going to be sorry .

Friend in name only?  Russia was never America's friend in name or in reality.  Trust me, I grew up there.  I will also go on the record saying that Russia will NEVER be America's friend.  They might start pretending when China tries to gobble up Siberia, but that is as far as it goes.

I whole heartedly agree. There are people over there that would be, but the politicians will never. Fact is that only so long as they are fearful of what we can do will they remain peaceful.

Putin worries me as does some of the revisionist thinking going on today in Russia but always felt that Mikhail Gorbachev was an enlightened man operating with a sense of decency.  Maybe I'm just naive but wish they has a current leader like him.

That is really the problem.  It is not just the leadership.  I would estimate that easily the majority of the people there despise US.  Some out of pure envy and some because of the brainwashing, but they still do.

Personally, I think Gorbachev stumbled into what he did by mistake, but I am eternally grateful to him for what he did.  Just for the record, he is one of the most despised people in Russia.  I am not sure where he is now, but after he was removed from power, he had to live abroad since he would be lynched if he has stayed in Russia.

There are a number of people in Russia that would be friendly towards the U.S. They are mostly the Jewish decent that are still there, but there are others as well. Unfortunately, just as you have pointed out, they are definitely in the minority.

The good news just never stops...
 

North Korea preparing to 'restart' nuclear reactor


A diplomat from Pyongyang says North Korea's atomic reactor will be restarted because Washington hasn't kept its part of an international deal to end the country's nuclear program.

I believe you; that's why I put "friend" in quotations.  That was a reference to the fact our elected officials have been telling us non-stop ever since the Berlin wall came down and the former Soviet Union went defunct that Russia is now our friend.
