The Bear

From, or America providing "humanitarian aid" to Georgia:

Janusz Bugajski, director of the new democracies program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Bush's actions should "persuade Russia from any further aggression."

"I wouldn't stake a lot of money on it, but I wouldn't think Russia would want to provoke something with the United States," Bugajski said.

Ohhh my God in Heaven. . . do you people have any IDEA how much they still hate America here? It's like one of those Van Damme or Seagal movies where they kill the hero's family and take him out and shoot him in the brain and leave him in the desert, but he doesn't die. . . he survives and recovers and redoubles his effort to get revenge.

That's Russia. America destroyed the Soviet Union, then turned them into a country of gangsters, drunks and prostitutes, and now George Bush's wrongheaded invasions have pushed the price of oil up so high, that they have way the fuck more money than America now.

From the website:

Oil export earnings have allowed Russia to increase its foreign reserves from $12 billion in 1999 to some $470 billion at year end 2007, the third largest reserves in the world.

compared to America:

revenues: $2.568 trillion
expenditures: $2.73 trillion (2007 est.)

reserves of foreign exchange and gold:
$70.57 billion (31 December 2007 est.)

So yeah, sleep well, world. . .
