Fast Translation:

It is a curious thing huh? Russian/US relations have always been a bit terse. Russia seems to really be "enjoying" the state of the US finances, they've been very vocal as late about it.

It will be interesting to see what comes of these meetings.

Despite the whole Georgian thing this summer, the US and Russia arent the bitter enemies folks would like to believe. Those two are on the same page more than you think and they are both working on the same agenda.

Okay..I'm glad to see a few more people are picking up on this story because this is beyond strange...how can he be in two places at once, and since he is in Finland, who is in Upstate NY with all the other world military leaders!

edit: forgot to add..the article above talked about a delegation from Italy flying in on a separate jet to meet up with them as well. Can anyone check some foreign media to see if it mentions it? Because the MSM isn't even coming CLOSE to talking about this NY meeting.
