Putin Stunner: "We Will Not Expel Anyone; We Refuse To Sink To 'Kitchen' Diplomacy"

Vladimir the merciful?
Following this morning's reports that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov would recommend to Russian President Vladimir Putin a retaliation in kind, and expel 35 American diplomats, saying that “we cannot leave such acts unanswered. Reciprocity is part of diplomatic law" with Putin spokesman Peskov adding that "there is no doubt that Russia's adequate and mirror response will make Washington officials feel very uncomfortable as well", it was ultimately up to Putin to decide how to respond to the US.
Which he did on Friday morning, when in a stunning reversal, the Russian leader took the high road, rejected the Lavrov proposal, and in a statement posted by the Kremlin said that Russia won’t expel any Americans in retaliation to US moves, in a brutal demonstration of just how irrelevant Obama's 11th hour decision is for US-Russian relations.
The reversal comes as Russian officials portrayed U.S. sanctions as a last act of a lame-duck president and suggested that Trump could reverse them when he takes over the White House in January.
My feeling? Good riddance to the worst president in any of our lifetimes.
The real legacy of Barrack Obama is the loss of hegemonic control of the eastern Mediterranean, which is of tremendous significance because that's where the Suez canal is. If the West loses access to that in time of war, oil tankers will have to go all the way around Africa to get to western Europe. The Russians now have a naval base in Syria, and Syria is now a puppet state of Russia and Iran.
Nice move, exlax! And. quick, before he leaves, he serves Moslem interests even further by throwing Israel overboard.
And I am not even talking aboút the damage he has done domestically, to America and to his own party.

I'm finding Obama's behaviour the last few weeks really disrespectful and embarrassing .
this whole bit about Russia is really stuiped and even if Russian hackers did hack the DNC emails it still doesn't prove anything . and trump would of won the election anyways as clearly average American voters were much more angry at Washington than the press was willing to admit . the wikileaks story was ignored by the mainstream media and got very little press . there essentially trying to now claim a story they virtually ignored flipped the entire election which is crazy
like if Bush in 2008 had come out and done the things Obama did , the media would of been all over it . if he had come out and claimed the 2008 election was rigged by foreign interests the claim would of been laughed at by CNN and not even been taken seriously
but unfortuently until Obama leaves office later this month it could continue to get worse as he knows that he won't have to face the voters again
It's going to be dangerously abominable for the next 16 days. Obama has massed troops on NATO's borders, the national debt continues to skyrocket, and illegal immigrants are streaming across the border.
The media have so twisted people's minds to the point where they fear a Trump presidency even though he is, as Gingrich said, the most pragmatic, least ideological, most centrist Republican president since Eisenhower. Most of his program is un-doing the damage that the Obama administration inflicted on America.
