October 18, 2007 Leave a comment
Russian President Vladimir Putin took the opportunity during a three hour televised question and answer session to further criticize the United States government. President Putin again voiced his extreme disappointment at US plans to deploy a missile defense system in neighboring Russian countries in Central Europe.
In a nationally televised program Vladimir Putin took questions on a wide range of issues which varied from domestic to international problems facing Russia. Over 2.5 million questions were submitted and during the three hour conference the President responded to about fifty of those that were received.
During the question and answer session Mr. Putin stated in regards to the Iraq conflict that it was in his words, “absolutely pointless”. He further reiterated that dialogue with Iran would be more productive than is his words, “a policy of threats, various sanctions or power politics”, as he characterized the policies of Washington.
Just last week the Russian President met with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Robert Gates to voice Russian condemnation of the proposed missile defense system planned to be deployed in Central Europe. He also made them aware of the fact that Russia was prepared to retaliate if the plan is implemented in its present form.
Do you think that George W Bush would have ever allowed such a question and answer conference to take place?-NO.
It seems as though more and more European countries are now tiring of the United States and its policies around the globe and that our stature as a once proud and moral nation is being diminished on a daily basis by our government leaders.
