Russia says U.S. no longer world's superpower

Original post made by a, Adobe-Meadow, on Jun 8, 2008

Russia's new President Medvedev says U.S. bit more than it could chew. Russian, btw, happens to have the largest cash reserves i, the world. The U.S., uh, happens to be billions in debt. The opposite and reverse of World War II between Europe and the U.S. has happened. The U.S. is now the world's beggar and borrower. Folks, the U.S. is no longer the world's darling. It's more like the U.S. is the world's thorn. Web Link

Yep. Bush looks deep into the soul of Vladimir Putin, an unreconstructed KGB officer, and likes what he sees. Wonder how much he collected.

How does this thread supposedly fit the forum category "Around Town"?!?!?

Some people don't bother to check before posting, obviously.
