I agree. I cannot tell either.
Hussein bin Obama al-Kenyata just met with Medvedev for the unilateral disarmament pact, eh? He told Medvedev he didn't want to embargo Iran gasoline because it might affect the general, innocent population and maybe even cause regime change.
Think they didn't talk about former SSR re-absorption?

Russia stands to reap benefits of Kyrgyz unrest
By YURAS KARMANAU and ANGELA CHARLTON , 04.09.10
BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan -- Russia has cast a long shadow in Central Asia, and it's shaping up as a big winner after the deadly uprising in Kyrgyzstan, the only nation in the world where both the U.S. and Russia have military bases.
Although few concrete signs have emerged of a direct Russian role in the revolt, the caretaker leader isn't hiding her appreciation of Moscow.
Russia was the first to recognize Roza Otunbayeva's interim leadership, and she told The Associated Press on Friday that her top deputy was holding talks in Moscow on Russian government aid. Another deputy suggested Russia could send in peacekeepers if violence reignites.

"Two Tu-95MS strategic bombers took off from Ukrainka Airbase on April 8 and carried out patrols over neutral waters in the Pacific Ocean and near the Aleutian Islands,"
