So, I guess this is maybe a big deal or what not. I don't know. All I know is that this one guy — the Soviet one — he has a name I can't pronounce real good — Medemeb? Mevviddidev? — and that they totally spelled nucular wrong.
With flourish and fanfare, President Obama and President Dmitri A. Medvedev of Russia signed a nuclear arms control treaty on Thursday and opened what they hoped would be a new era in the tumultuous relationship between two former cold war adversaries…
Mr. Medvedev called the treaty signing "a truly historic event" that will "open a new page" in Russian-American relations. "What matters most is this is a win-win situation," he said. "No one stands to lose from this agreement. I believe this is a typical feature of our cooperation. Both parties have won."
Ugh! You see that? Russia has won! Barack Obama has allowed Russia to win! And don't bother denying it; it's right there in black and white in your precious New York Times. Glenn Beck was so right about everything. What's next? Pampering the Iranians?
The Russian president signaled general support for the American-led drive to impose new sanctions on Iran, saying that Tehran's nuclear program has flouted the international community. "We cannot turn a blind eye to this," Mr. Medvedev said, while adding that sanctions "should be smart" and avoid hardship for the Iranian people.
