Well, I guess I won't be able to see the Hermitage now...
« on: November 16, 2014, 12:57:52 am »
I guess I won't be able to fulfill my life-long dream of visiting the Hermitage Museum now, but I do like that my PM has the balls to say something like this to a former KGB agent:

Quote
Mr. Harper's encounter with Mr. Putin came Saturday morning when the Canadian Prime Minister was speaking to a group of leaders.

The Russian Leader stuck out his hand.

Mr. Harper accepted the gesture but said to the Russian Leader: "I guess I'll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you, you need to get out of Ukraine."‎

    I'm surprised putin didn't reply "make me" or "mind your own business".

    Maybe he did, his response was not noted in the Canadian press.  Or maybe he was too surprised to remark.

    I applaud your PM's cahones.

    well, at least one North American leader has to have a set of nuts. It sure isn't ours.

    Sadly very true.
