The losers’ club
: Well this will be a fun meeting:

French President Jacques Chirac and U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan are to join Russian leader Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder at talks this weekend in St. Petersburg, the Kremlin said.

Of course, they will keep firing pot shots at us. F’ ’em.

I’m a bit surprised that Schroeder and Putin are meeting with the other two; they’re cagier politicians and you’d think they’d be hedging their bets these days.

Do they really want to set themselves up against the United States in the future?

Do they really want to find themselves thus defending North Korea or various Arab tyrannies?
