They opposed our fight against terror.
Like every good pansy, they will come crawling to us for some help, eventually.
(I don't direct this at the Russian people, but rather the Russian leaders)

In the matter of Afghanistan, the Russians didn't help because, well they already got their asses kicked in Afghanistan once. It would have been like asking us to go back to Vietnam.

In the matter of Iraq, the Russians didn't help because they were violating the UN sanctions against Iraq and making money off of Iraq.

Also, the Russians have had their own rebellion and terrorists problems that they have been dealing with for a very long time.

I think calling them panzies is an incorrect characterization.

Good points.
But, the thing I'm thinking about is how they actually opposed us in Iraq.
And yes, I know it was because they were dealing with Iraq, illegally.
But, now the tables are turned.
W is shown to be righteous, and ahead of the ball, so to speak.
They should eat a little crow.

True. However, this could also be an opportunity for Bush to get more "cooperation from the international community".
