Former President Bush denies that he could see see tensions between George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin, however he believes that the Russian and US
Government have good relations and understand each other.
well, the problem is twitchy, only one person can confirm that story, so we have to give him the benifit of the doubt. A lot of times they pinned
medals on people just and parade them around to sell more war bonds
Tho I have to wonder why Putin is giving an award to Bush Sr. when Russia had hardly anything to do with the Pacific japanese war. Shouldn't USA be
giving him a medal?
invite the current pres and just give each other slapps on the back in private instead of making idiots out of themselves in front of the whole world.
Next thing you know these guys will be having michael jackson style sleep overs.
