Reports: Medvedev wants to meet US 'dissidents'

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says he would like to meet with "dissidents" when he visits the U.S. next week.

Russian news agencies quote him as telling a group of visiting foreign experts that "I believe there are dissidents in the United States."

ITAR-Tass quotes him as saying: "Let them tell me what problems the United States has. That won't be bad, considering the Soviet experience."

It wasn't immediately clear if the comment Tuesday was a subtle dig at the U.S., which has frequently

I found this humorous, but unfortunately true; in regards to many of us who are waking up from the Mainstream Media Psychological warfare.

Now, the Russian President is even cracking jokes about the former USA, and newly formed Banana Socialist Republic of the United States.

How pathetic is it when foreigners as a whole recognize what We are becoming, and so many of Our country People don't?

I for one being a "labeled" dissident, wouldn't mind hanging out with a Ruskie, or sharing a little bit of their "national spirits"

As a rusky, I feel I can say, Putin has hated America since he first became a KGB superspy. Now that the fall of communism has made him fabuloisly wealthy and powerful, he feels that it is ironic that the USA is becoming like the former commie-oligarchy of the USSR that he used to serve, and chose to poke fun through his sockpuppet love-toy Mr. Medvedyev.

Maybe he'll stop by my town...oh yeah, I told him not to.

So...all you have to do is contact him and let him know you're a 'dissident' huh? Sounds harmless enough.

I wouldn't mind hangin with him either, but no food that contains anything's stomach and no wodka.
Ever heard of 'russian hands?'

I could squeeze a little time in for him late in the day like say 4:00 to 4:15 PM. I would appreciate it of course if he ditched the security detail and the reporters, I don't want to give the neighbors the wrong idea or anything with the Russian President stopping by just out of the clear blue.

Oh and if he could bring some Perokis you know the authentic fried kind with meat, not potatoe, oh and some fresh sour cream.

A couple of those Moscow girls the Beatles used to sing about would be nice also too.

Provided he can do all that I would be willing to meet with him.

Because I am highly sociable!

Well gee, maybe a Russian President is finally coming around to the way the CIA has operated for years. Don't like a current regime? Then meet with their dissidents and find secret, covert ways to fund them and supply them with weapons. Institute anti-government propaganda, and all that good stuff. Iran anyone? Nicaragua? Ecuador? Columbia?

I have been wondering how long it would take before the other major powers started backing dissidents here in the states, at least, that we know about. And I'm talking about political dissidents, not people like the Black Panthers, the KKK, or the Arian Brotherhood.

This wreaks of sketchiness. I don't see any benefit for the public that disapproves of this administration. I think he has his own intentions here, not the American public's (clearly...) I hope I'm wrong but Russia isnt exactly the freedom capital of the world...I don't think going to Russia about your problems with this administration is going to do anything but screw us over more...We dont need foreign powers sticking their noses where they don't belong to fix our own problems at home.

Interesting indeed...

If he brings a crate of premium vodka and caviar the discussion could get interesting. I wouldn't mind comparing notes with him on a range of subjects. It could last for days even.

In this case 'the enemy of my enemy is not a friend' with America's best interest at heart.

As far as American dissenters go, the majority of people I have observed truly do love their country and want the best for it. They care about the problems and are unhappy because they love their country and want it improved. You don't get outraged or try to change something you don't care about.

If you want to vent to other people or organize a plan, vent to other people who actually care like you do. Don't team up with someone who doesn't care about your country but is only using you just because they have similar dislikes.

If anyone dished their frustrations out to a foreign dignitary, I'd lose a lot of respect for them.

It's like if you have a loved one who is self destructing and this concerns you, you don't go to their enemies for support or someone whose motivations you don't fully understand. Instead, you go to other loved ones who share your concern.

You don't run off to the first person who will listen. You can be unhappy with your country but still love it. There are also those who are unhappy with your country and hate it.

Well...will these people have authentic Perokis, the fried in high cholesterol saturated fat kind?

If not what kind of snack items and beverages will they have at their meetings.

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach you know!

Mmmmm foood.

We'd be happy to meet with Mr. Medvedev here at Heathencrest Acres. He's welcome to bring some caviar. But vodka, no. White liquor and my wife's temperment don't mix well. However, I'd be happy to share some Maker's Mark with him. We could shell some black beans from the garden, We could talk about gangsters, banksters and spanksters. Also maybe he could clue me in on those Russian gals who email me pictures and want to marry me and have my babies. Are they for real? Do they share?

What i like about real politics,especially those involving world superpowers with enough nukes to toast Earth, is that it is totally unlike kinder-garden level behavior.

Obama's speech came on the final day of a summit here in which he met with Russian political leaders, business people, activists and dissidents as part of his effort to "reset" U.S. relations with Russia.
I wonder why Medvedev wants to meet American dissidents? Go figure ...

New source of funding opportunities perhaps?

Russia has massive stock piles of weapons that are collecting dust.

Maybe he wants to bankroll the revolution?

Sounds to me that they already have their spies here looking for assets...

What tangled web we weave...

Always looking to spread their definition of freedom. It reminds me when the religious types came to foreign lands to turn the natives from their own beliefs over to Christianity.

Whatever is happening has happened and will happen again... *sigh* I guess we will never learn from history.

Maybe 2012 end of the world isn't such a bad thing after all...

Word? Isn't that exactly what the Iraquis, Afghanis, Haitians, Hondurans, Panamenians, Chileans, Somalians, Salvadorians and other nationalities were saying due to the US invasions occurring during respective countries?

I would meet with him just to say "suka yovney verot zopi zachu" and see what he says. Just a few word I picked up playing commy kick ball (futbol).

I welcome him.

He's more than welcome to contact me through ATS so we can arrange the finer details, but in essence, what we'll do is a typical Q&A thing where he supplies me with questions in advance, and vice-versa, and I'll prepare my answers as I'm sure will he. Following that, a 4 hour one-on-one, off-the-record, round-table, open-bar discussion to which we commit to refrain from disclosing the contents of without the handwritten consent of the other, but just a slight twist: we are each allowed to be accompanied with one Senior government official from a foreign country of each individual's choice (i.e.: I being of the USA cannot choose a USA nor Russian dignatory nor can He choose a dignitory from Russia or the USA), and are not permitted to choose the same country to draw an Official from. If the official(s) chose(n) are not available, THAT OFFICIAL may designate a replacement SENIOR official of their government or either myself or Medvedev my opt to choose an official from a different country.
Basically making it 4 party talks.

Myself and my "official" will be permitted, for one week's time to collaborate on questions we will present as will Medvedev be permitted to collaborate with his "official" on their questions. Additionally, mine and Medvedev's will also be permitted one week's time to prepare responses to the questions after receiving them. Ideally, Q&A exchanges will happen locally, by personal presentation, but barring that possibility, questions will be transmitted directly between parties via email followed by face-to-face conveyence and confirmation of the contents. In the latter case, an additional 2 weeks is permitted to accomodate arrangements for travel, etc. or if not possible due to time constraints, the Q&A session may be extended as necessary to allow for questions to be presented 'immediately' and answers to be researched and in the case of either 'official', have responses advised by their governments.

The Q&A session will be recorded audibly and may possibly upon mutual agreement be video-recorded. In the advent of the situation where advance notification of the questions and answers is not possible, visual recording will cease and audible recording of the session(s) will be decided upon by the parties involved, but at no time will audible recording stop when all parties are present.

Both parties will have the right to remove or otherwise edit sections of the recording(s) but only if all parties involved: myself, Medvedev and the two "officials" agree to such edits. In the event an agreement cannot be reached with regards to an edit, the question portion will remain and the answer segment(s) for that question will be removed and replaced with an appropriate notification attested to vocally and visually, if visual recording is done, by each member present, that the answer could not be satisfactorily answered. This is provided as an option to allow discussion with regards to situations that upon face-to-face encounter cannot be settled but may reach resolution after some 'off-the-record discussion' and should this be attainable, the off-the-record disscussion's result will be made 'on-the-record'.

If anyone has any more suggests, feel free to let me know.
