    Why? Does he feel immune to international opinion or is it contempt for Harper and Canada?
    If he did he was laughing at the rest of the 'leaders' who smiled and nodded when they met him face-to-face and bad-mouthed his policies to the reporters. Buncha gutless pussies.

    Don't get all sensitive because we are talking about Canada, odds are Putin has had plenty of laughter at whatever comes out of Obama's mouth as well.

    Simply put Putin is probably laughing because he seems to get away with far more than he does not. You can claim international pressure, or fear of Canada and Harper, or worry about "international opinion", or whatever else all you would like. But the reality is Putin is doing what he wants to.

    Prove me wrong...

    Nah, I already got the value of your posts. Thanks for the reinforcement, though.

    I'm not talking about nations. I'm talking about men, face to face. If the guy down the street punches his wife but is still invited to the block party and the only one who calls him on it is the smallest guy at the party, what does that say about the rest?

Tough talk is great, but it should carry some relevant actions. When is Canada going to freeze Russian assets or close its market to Russia? When is it going to help fund the Ukranian army like the US does? No? Okay then, tough talk is all Harper has.
    Please become current. Canada has sanctioned various goods not covered by treaty the closest you can get to a trade war. Canada's sovereignty in the north is being challenged almost daily.

    Canada has also been sanctioned by Russia costing us jobs.

    What has Obama done?

    man, so much anti-Canadianism...

    Hate us, it's free. But, the next time you have to shut down your air space don't come looking for a safe place to land. Based on your posts and the hostility we will be happy to let the planes drop into the ocean.

    Nice ****ing neighbors.....
