Kumana Wanalaia: Rapmaster2000: The more you tighten your grip, the more stability will slip through your fingers.

Not after we demonstrate the capabilities of this death czar.


Traveling through hyperconservatism ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a czar, or bounce too close to a superPAC and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it?

How can Russia declare talking to foreigners illegal? It makes no sense, they are all foreign over there. I was over there once on a business trip, no one was speaking English.

Doesn't Putin realize that this could affect Russia's tourism industry by tens or even hundreds of dollars?

lawboy87: Spare Me: People think the Cold War is over. Well, it never ended. Who supplies Iran, Syria and others? Same game, different decade.

But George W Bush told me that he looked Putin in the eye and found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy!

Are you trying to tell me that I can't trust former President Bush's assessment of Putin? Damn, and when he seemed to get everything else right.


You can't trust any past leader's assessment since Reagan. It's the old school "two toughest kids on the block" dealio. At some point, they're gonna fight. It's been going on since 1947 and will continue.

The sad part is Putin has this..

randomjsa: Republicans just don't like illegal immigrants. We don't have a problem with anyone else coming here.


Tru dat. You welcome rich carpetbaggers like Rupert Murdoch with open arms.
But seriously, folks - I don't know why giving aid and comfort to Young Republicans would be considered treasonous for a Ruassian.
An American, yes - but not a Russian.

You should read yahoo news comments whenever one of these Putin photoshoots is released. Tea-Partiers agree with you.

I think Putin would be insulted by the cmparisan. He is an evil guy but he's not stupid.

kumanoki: BigNumber12: Supporters of the new law include Igor Korotchenko, a national security analyst and chairman of the public advisory council to Russia's Ministry of Defense.

Korotchenko has high praise for the American FBI, especially for its success in uncovering Russian spies such as Robert Hanson and Anna Chapman.

He says the effectiveness of America's intelligence agencies was further enhanced by the powers they were given after the 9/11 attacks.

Korotchenko says he simply wants Russia's Federal Security Service to have the same broad powers as its American counterpart.


Yikes.

I heard that this morning on the way to work.

It's BS. The FSB has far more powers before this law than the FBI ever had, even when Hoover was running things. It's standard Eastern-bloc trolling that always hooks Western left-wingers ("Look, they were inspired by us!").
