You Cannot Make This Shit Up

MOSCOW (Reuters) - NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen asked Russia on Wednesday to give the Western military alliance more help in Afghanistan but failed to get an immediate pledge of assistance from the Kremlin.
I suppose that "Вы курите крак?" (are you smoking crack) would seem to be the appropriate response.

"Please get involved again in Afghanistan" is a request to the Russians that would be about as attractive to Moscow as if the Chinese had asked us for help with their little border war with Vietnam in the late `70s and early `80s. Either that, or the sound that the Muscovites are hearing now is laughter emanating from the Kremlin.

Is Anders Fogh Rasmussen the long-lost brother of George W. Bush, ignorant of history and with hubris out the hoohah? Curious penguins have suspicions!
