  1. And Putin said, “we’ve been waiting for quite a long time that maybe something would change for the better, we had hopes that the situation would change. But it looks like, it’s not going to change in the near future… I decided that it is time for us to show that we will not leave anything unanswered.”

  2. The diplomatic portions of State and Defense need to be pared down at least 50% anyway...when they get back to the US give them a pink slip in recognition of their failure to maintain useful relations with Russia. indyjonesouthere
