Pentagon: Hagel’s Russian counterpart won’t return his calls | Fox News

Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren told reporters that Hagel is trying to speak with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, but the Russian Defense Ministry won’t return his calls.

You don’t suppose it has anything to do with this stroke of Obama brilliance, do you?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

If he kept holding then every hour or so I’d pick up the phone, laugh, and say “You still there, putz? Please hold”.
