US decries Russian "unilateralism"
File this under "almost too ironic for words":
The United States said on Thursday it would not support Russian President Vladimir Putin if he carried out his threat to attack Chechen rebel bases in Georgia and slammed him for suggesting he might.With some creative editing, this is how the Russians might respond:
Russia said on Thursday it would not support US President George Bush if he carried out his threat to attack Iraq and slammed him for suggesting he might.With its belligerance toward Iraq, the US has surrendered any high moral ground it may have held. Indeed, Russia is engaged in its own war against "terror", and if Georgia harbors said terrorists, doesn't the "Bush Doctrine" give Russia a right to unilaterally invade Georgia to root them out? Ditto Pakistan and India. Or Colombia and Venezuela. Posted September 12, 2002 02:17 PM | Comments (1)
