Many criticise American politctians for short minded approach to international affairs, for their inability to analyse a dominant trend in World politics. Many... but not me (are you happy Andy?). Just yesterday, honourable mr.Cheney sounding his mini-Fulton speech expressed his skills in real-politik. The 'SnowWhite' from Washington arrived in Lithuania to please 'her' political dwarfs. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4972464.stm He is absolutely right Russia doesn't fear clowns from so called 'strong stable democracies'. Indeed, after removing of British 'rocks' right of 'the people' were restricted. Of course we are the best friends. As true friends the Russians decided to support this statement by a concrete step. Today Gazsprom declared that gas-prices for Lithuania will be up for additional $30 (for 1000 cm) from 1 July. Lithuanian president that hosted this political kindergarden voiced maybe the most expensive speech in the Lithuanian history. As a result today import of Georgian mineral water in Russia has been banned (previously it has been done toward Georian wimes).
