The Cold War Is Really and Truly Over (Right?)

. Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I knew it was gonna be awesome when Medvedev started a Twitter account. Even better when he started an English version. Is this lost in translation, or just perfection of politicians' pablum?

Improvements due to a high oil price could lead to unjustified tranquility.We have seen this before. We must not allow this to happen again.

Yes. We must be very careful to avoid "unjustified tranquility". We cannot let ourselves be tranquil again. We have seen this before.

Snark aside, Russia cannot depend on oil revenues forever. This is true, and Medvedev's whole thing on this North American trip has been about boosting information technology (and hamburgers?) in Russia. Just a funny way to say it is all.

Oh, and spies.
