All You Howard-Lovers OK With This???

On his way to APEC, Vladimir Putin signed a billion dollar deal to supply Indonesia with dozens of helicopters, tanks and submarines over the next 15 years.
Putin's visit to Indonesia is the first by a Russian — or Soviet — president in nearly five decades and signals a desire to strengthen bilateral ties to counterbalance the United States' growing influence on global politics, analysts say.
An apt symbol of all the opportunities that have been lost over the past decade.

Of course, the Howard-loving AJs will say this proves they were right all along... (sigh). So now we find ourselves on the front line of the New Cold War. Great.
