A withering America

"Careful, she might bite you," the guide warns as Putin attempts to untangle the pike from the net. "I might bite her," Putin shoots back. News of the trophy fish made a big splash, but its weight said by presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov to be 21kg, equal to the United Kingdom record for the largest pike provoked disbelief. The former deputy prime minister, Alfred Kokh, a keen fisherman, argued in a Facebook post that it would have weighed "12 to 13 kilograms at most". Meanwhile, fishermen across Russia began posting pictures of themselves with reference pikes that resembled Putin's in size but weighed far less. Others joked that the Kremlin weighed its fish in the same way as it counted votes. Some commentators doubted that the weekend trip had taken place.

Putin Shows Global Mojo to Russians as U.S. Fumes Over Snowden

Snowdens leaks have done untold, irreparable harm. Hes wanted on federal felony charges and has been hiding in a Moscow airport. America asked Russia to hand him over, but Putin had no fear of consequences by instead granting Snowden asylum, the international equivalent of aiding and abetting and a blatant nose-thumb to America. Nor has Putin helped on other vital matters, like stopping Irans nuclear drive or ending the brutality of Syrias Bashar al-Assad. Quite the opposite: Hes been sending weapons and military equipment to Assad and the terrorist group Hezbollah, including anti-ship missiles that US and Israeli officials see as a direct threat. Yesterday, The New York Times reported that Russia is believed to be sending technical experts to Syria to help set up http://wallinside.com/post-4859810-how-to-walk-in-high-heels-class-teaches-important-skill-to-nyc-women.html new missile systems. Terrorists dont much fear US consequences, either.

How Putin's move could help Snowden and U.S.

The one-year asylum, which ended the former U.S. contractors 39-day stay in the transit area of Moscows Shremetyevo airport, prompted Obama to weigh the cancellation of the summit. The U.S. is evaluating the utility of the meeting, according to White House spokesman Jay Carney , who said the president is personally extremely disappointed. Putins spokesman, Dmitry Peskov , declined to comment. The tension over Snowden threatens to scupper Russias plans to use the G-20 summit in St. Petersburg to shore learn more up investor confidence, according to Chris Weafer , senior partner at Macro Advisory in Moscow. Bad Timing The timing couldnt be worse, Weafer wrote in a report yesterday.
