Many of the comments after the article sound very Freeper-like. Some of America is awake at least.
I must have woken up in Bizzaro Land.
I’ll look at the address bar: Yup, it’s Free Republic.
What in the H*ll are a bunch of _FREEPERS_ for Christ’s sake doing defending Russia when they SNARK at us while our wounded warriors LAY BLEEDING?!?!
one word , Comrade.. Beslan.
you irreverant bastards.
multiple attacks .. same day .. military installations
Since when was it decided that Tweets were news?
“Nobodys even surprised anymore,
It’s the truth.
Here’s an important point on diplomacy. When something tense is going on in Israel, the Israeli PM often asks lower officials not to comment. As far as I know all parties usually comply as the media suddenly goes dark on that subject re. lower officials quoting. This makes controlling the message much easier.
It bothers me that McCain and others have responded to Putin. Even though I don’t like him and I think he’s totally incompetent, it is Obama’s job to make any response; not anybody else. And, unless Putin is trying to piss off America, he would be well advised to quietly ask lower officials to tweet about the weather and leave handling America to him.
Dumb move, Russian. We don’t mock you when Chechen rebels do you guys.
Pushkov might find himself on a one-way trip to the Lubyanka if he doesn’t zip it.
Not even bothering to hide their distain.
America will be openly mocked as long as he is sitting the in the White House. Nobody would have dared say this if George Bush was still President.
Laz....Boston Bombers were Chechen rebels...Russia warned us...and we told them to MYOB
Did the shooter shout “Thank God” or something to that effect?
He was mocking America and those who think America is an exceptional country. President for Life Putin and his cronies are quite overjoyed to have a nitwit in the White House and howling collaborators who admire an autocrat.
It’s the stupid Russian Official who degrades Russia.
And wasn’t Bill Cosby’s son shot dead by a Russian national?
Isn’t it sad when the Conservative movement becomes so full of dunces that they admire Putin more than National Review, The American Spectator, and The Washington Times?
