VLAD'S DAILY GLOAT
These past couple of weeks there was a fight in Europe. On one side, the United States of America, "the world's only superpower," defender of a Free World. On another side, Russia, supposedly weak, evil, Asiatic. The Europeans had to choose sides. Guess who won? Here, I'll let the BBC tell you:
Nato has confirmed it will not offer membership to Georgia or Ukraine but agreed to review the decision on the ex-Soviet republics in December.
US President George W Bush had called for Georgia and Ukraine to be allowed to join.
But the move was opposed by Germany and France and effectively blocked, since Nato must agree unanimously on new members.
Georgian diplomats earlier said the expected "no" would be a victory for Russia, which has voiced concerns at Nato's eastward expansion.
AMERICAN SURRENDER MONKEY
Uh-oh, according to Georgia's own logic, this means VICTORY FOR RUSSIA! Georgia knows this, but bloodthirsty dumbfuck George-ia Bush is too retarded to understand the situation: America is weak, no one listens to Americans anymore, the world could give a shit what Dumfucker wants or believes. Nations are moving towards the protection of the real power, and moving away from losers like America. Georgian President Saakashvili was afraid of exactly this, according to the Bloomberg article titled "Nato Snubs Ukraine, Georgia; Blow To Bush":
Discord over North Atlantic Treaty Organization expansion casts a cloud over Bush's legacy, giving Russian President Vladimir Putin an opening to exploit a divided alliance and to strengthen Russia's hold on its sphere of influence.
You're right Saakashvili. Wanna hear how a Russian cries victory over you pathetic fags? VICTORY! VICTORY! RUSSIA KICKED YOUR FUCKING ASSES! WE ARE BACK, MOTHERFUCKERS! FUCK YOU AMERICAN IMPERIALIST LOSERS, AND FUCK YOU GEORGIAN DICTATOR STOOGE! YOU LOST, NOW GO BURY YOUR HEADS IN SHAME, AND MAKE WAY FOR REAL GENUINE POWER, RUSSIAN POWER!
"Bush expended a great deal of political capital teeing this one up," said Charles Kupchan, a professor at Georgetown University in Washington who was on the National Security Council in the Clinton administration. "Despite the heavy lifting, Washington's proposal was shot down."
Russia "will cry victory," Saakashvili said yesterday in Bucharest. "What's at stake here is whether peace will be preserved or we will go back to the conflicts and regional tensions."
Yes, this feels good.
