.......buy American
....cars?
Name an American car. You can't... The Japanese make the highest percentage of parts that go into their own cars, than any other country. ALL other countries cars are conglomerations of parts, from many other countries, especially American cars. Japanese make it all, steel, electronics (including microchips), glass.[8)]

You have to remember that Bush "looked into" Putin's soul and is convinced that he's just a great guy. Isn't it great to have a leader than can look into other leader's souls? [:D]

In another round of delicate, finessed diplomacy, Bush again makes progress for peace in the world:

Gosh, pissed-off Putin. Man, how could you sleep at night knowing you'd irritated somebody who is slowly returning his country to dictatorship? Where is the nuance? Damned-fool cowboy didn't have enough diplomatic sense to overlook Putin's seizing control of companies and muting dissent. Then to complain about giving nukes to mullahs! How presumptuous.

We need more leaders like Chirac. There's a man who knows how to ignore reality.

Jeez sorry about the spell checker with a mind of it's own. But it is a little ironic don't ya think. [:p]

"ROGUE STATES"

There is no question that Russia, as an independent and sovereign country, has the right to export its weapons. But there is a big question about the customers of Russian arms sales abroad, because most of them are considered "rogue states" – countries with totalitarian regimes that have very strong anti-American sentiments.

We know that the armies of North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Vietnam, Cuba and many others countries are armed with amounts of Russian weapons that flowed to these countries in recent years that are growing dramatically.

For example, recently Iraq ordered 150 Russian mobile anti-aircraft systems for $7.5 million apiece in an apparent attempt to shoot down American and British warplanes enforcing no-fly zones. The Iraqis are also believed to be setting up their own production line to manufacture the missiles for use in a long-running battle with American and British jets.

Experts believe the deal will be the first of many military agreements, which could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars to the Russians. Previously Iraq negotiated a $150 million arms package shortly after the United Nations authorized air strikes by Britain and the U.S. in retaliation for Saddam Hussein’s refusal to cooperate with international weapons inspectors.

As Russia’s Foreign Ministry announced recently, Russian companies plan to help build oil and gas pipelines, power stations and electricity transmission in Libya at a cost of $154 million, to cooperate in overhauling the nearly 90 MiG-25 combat jets Libya already owns, and to supply them with its S-300 air defense systems.

International sanctions against Libya, which were imposed after the bombing of a Pan Am airliner that crashed in 1998 in Scotland, were lifted last year. And Russia hoped this would allow oil-rich Libya to pay off its Soviet-era debts (of about $2.5 billion) and pave the way for a renewed economic and strategic partnership, as well as military cooperation between two old friends and allies.

Today’s Russia is ready to sell its up-to-date weapons systems to anybody who is ready to pay big bucks, needed to get the money for realizing President Putin’s pre-election promises to restore power to his country’s military machine.

And Moscow doesn’t care about whose hands these weapons fall into after delivery. In particular, Kremlin leaders don’t care about the possibility that these arms will find their way into the hands of international terrorists, who could use them not only against the U.S. and American friends and allies, but against the Russian people themselves.
