THEY ARE MASTERS AT CHESS
The question is, did they refuse the handshakes BEFORE or AFTER Obama gave up the missile shield?
My take on it: the Russians are masters at chess. What you saw there was not spontaneous, and nobody at that level in Russia does anything that outrageous without a plan. That was a deliberate move.
What I'm saying happened is a team of KGB psychologists analyzed Obama's narcissist make up, and coached the Russian negotiating team. They put Obama so far off his game that, when it was time to sit down to do the talking, he was so desperate to be liked he gave up the major tenet of US foreign policy - the missile shield - without asking a thing in return.
Me? If I was President and a team of Russians did a thing like that to me, I'd say, "Fine. Have a nice party. F*ck you very much." Then flip them the digitus impudicus and turn and leave.
You're the President of the United States, the Leader of the Free World, and the single most powerful man in the world, Mr. Obama, and you let a bunch of horse traders play you like a cheap violin. Smooth move. NOT.
