… U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden told the international gathering of top diplomats and defense officials that Washingon and Moscow “have serious differences on issues like Syria, missile defense, NATO enlargement, democracy, human rights.” …
Well, well, why wouldn’t Moscow be all for ‘NATO enlargement’ and for Russia being encircled by NATO’s missiles? Duh!
… “The United States will not recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states,” Biden said. “We will not recognize any nation having a sphere of influence. It will remain America’s view that sovereign states have the right to make their own decisions and choose their own alliances.” …
VP Biden wants it both ways, i.e. His USA ‘having spheres of influence’ but Russia not. So very stupid of Biden. But, then, Biden is known for not being all that intelligent.
… He said Washington would continue to support the Syrian opposition and that the United States currently provided it more than $50 million in nonlethal assistance. He predicted that the “days ahead will be difficult” for Syria but that the “Syrian opposition continues to grow stronger.”
Lavrov said Moscow has many questions about the Western approach to the Middle East, including the Arab Spring and Syria. …

- The US is Going Broke
- Quantitative easing, the national debt, and the slippery slope to hyperinflation
