U.S. is in No Shape to give Advice, Russian President Medvedev Says


www.iht.com

MOSCOW: Russia's new president, Dmitri Medvedev, less swaggering than his predecessor but as touchy about criticism from abroad, said in an interview that an America in "essentially a depression" was in no position to lecture other countries on how to conduct their affairs.

With soaring oil revenues bolstering the Russian economy and Kremlin confidence, Medvedev brushed aside American criticism of his country's record on democracy and human rights. He also said that a revived Russia had a right to assume a larger role in a world economic system that he suggested should no longer be dominated by the United States.

Well, he's certainly got a point. This current admin or gov in general doesn't have much business lecturing others on democracy and human rights. But I found it somewhat odd that he is referring to the states as being in a DEPRESSION, when none of the economists here will even acknowledge a RECESSION. lol!

Boy, the states and Russia seem to be drifting back towards a cold war feeling to me...Anyone else getting that feeling? I wonder what will happen if the maniacs in the Whitehouse go forward with attacking Iran?



In the interview, Medvedev was asked about a call by Senator John McCain of Arizona, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, to bar Russia from the Group of 8 because of its record on democracy. Medvedev, who easily won Russia's presidential election in March after the Kremlin hobbled the opposition, responded that the question of democracy was irrelevant to the Group of 8 and, besides, the United States had more pressing matters to attend to.

ha! the first thing you said in your 2nd post is exactly what i was thinking. what those outside this country have GOT to realize is that the current administration is no longer speaking for "America". They are operating under their own regime.

Oh we for sure are in a recession and here soon a depression. The government numbers are all a sham and just another propaganda tool. People need to wake up to the fact that the world has changed and we are not king dingaling anymore. Russia has a valid point. Look at all the oil dollars they have and they have bolstered themselves. We have made MORE in oil dollar but where has it gone? Why does NO ONE ask that question. How is all these other countries doing so well with oil being this high but not us. Because this money is being siphoned off and used to fight this stupid war among other things to line their pockets.
