From Russia With Love

From ABC Spain:

Vladimir sends get-well card to his friend Hugo

Russian president Vladimir Putin has sent a letter to Caracastan in which he wishes a “quick and complete recovery” to Hugo Chávez, stressing the bond that “has intensified between our countires” in the past few years.

Venenozuelan vice-president Nicolás “Saddamito” Maduro read Putin’s letter in public yesterday.

The letter was brought to Caracastan by a high-level Russian delegation that flew in to sign a series of accords between the two countries on matters related to energy, defense, agriculture, and commerce.

Putin’s letter praised Chávez, saying that “during our many years of friendship I have more than once been convinced that you are a genuine fighter, a brave man with a strong will.”

Putin also said that he is confident that Chávez “will triumph over his illness and return to his country to move forward the noble cause he has set in motion” and that his recovery will lead to the “formation of a prosperous and strong Venezuela.”

    Putin has a ghoulish face with cold, reptilian eyes, and this business of flashing stale middle-aged flesh is beyond unseemly. He obviously thinks he's hot shit, and he really looks like he's had his upper body Botoxed. Disgusting.

    Ah, the blabbering and erratic Russians with their inferiority complex, desperate presumptions of world power, and dedication to always support the most useless tyrants and miserable regimes. Is it just a cry for attention? I think it is. It seems Vodka has truly caused irreversible damage to that nation.

    The Chinese must be saying "Whata stupid naichan. They bloke and going no whea, China way smara."
