Joe Biden

part 1: Really... is Joe Biden a complete idiot? What good could come of publicly maligning Russia like this?

part 2: who is the bigger dork, George Bush or Joe Biden? Bush said some classicly moronic things... like "I believe man and fish can coexist peacefully", but Joe is just as politically incorrect and unstrategic as they come.

Is this more or less harmful than openly calling North Korea evil?

Hmm... maybe. Russia has a lot more people and power, but I suppose North Korea could be very dangerous in disseminating its nuclear know how. On the other hand, our relationship with Russia seemed to be heading in a positive direction.

If I was Russia, I would probably end up demanding more in negotiations to prove that Russia is strong. But if I was really weak as Joe stated, it could easily backfire on me.

Fail to see how calling NK evil changed anything whatsoever. Its not like they decided at just that point in time to engage in a nuclear weapons program. That was something they were working on since probably before the Clinton administration.
Having said all that, the situation has been handled, so this thread is pretty much at an end. -Kossuth

The fact alone, that russian newspapers bring something on the front page when a VP of USA says something, proves his point.

I doubt we will see any politicians trying to argue against him in this argument.


Edit: Saying russia is "a great nation" is not arguing against him.
