Russian Meteor

KT Meteor

A meteor exploded with a blinding flash above central Russia on Friday, just when we weren’t expecting it. All eyes were turned towards the area of the sky where the DA14 asteroid was “near missing” the planet, and the meteor snuck up behind us – so to speak. At first I wondered if the two could be related, but apparently they were no.

Experts said that the fall of such a large meteor estimated as weighing dozens of tonnes was extremely rare while the number of casualties from its burning up around a heavily-inhabited area was unprecedented. ‘Thank God that nothing fell onto inhabited areas,’ President Vladimir Putin said in a meeting with the Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov, ordering him to look into how to warn citizens about such events. He was referring to actual “pieces” of the meteor, which was apparently completely vaporized in the atmosphere.

Another report from another high ranking Russian official was not so kind (and more than a little odd). He blamed this on the United States military, who he claimed were testing some sort of new-fangled “meteor weapon”. Other conspiracy theorists are now saying it was actually an “attack from outer space” because it coincided with some sort of “skyline light show” they observed.

Wow.

    In Your Opinion Is Newt Gingrich A Racist ? Should Racists Be Allowed To Become President Of The United States? Racists have been elected as Heads Of State of their respective countries , for example Vladimir Putin in Russia. Is their any harm in electing a person as the President who is a racist ? Should we Americans elect one ?

    • I don’t think Newt Gingrich is a racist. I think he is a despicable, dishonest man who will say and do anything to serve his own ego, though. That’s why I won’t vote for Newt.

    Who Is A Better President: George Bush Or Vladimir Putin? What do you really think?

    One thing that stands out to me is that most Americans show distaste for Bush while most Russians show favor for Putin.

    • I think Vladimir Putin is the better president in compare to Bush. 1) Bush’s administration has made US debt more than three trillions and it can link to moon with all separate US dollar bills one by one. 2) Bush’s failure in oil price control and burst the bubble of subprimeloan. 3) He probably recognized as most unpopular US president in the history.
      Putin rebuilds the Russia shaky economic successfully and the multitudes are enjoying the better quality life style in Russia now. If you were have a choice, you probably choose Putin as your president.

    • The Russian president. He is a throw back of the old regime that ran the USSR into the ground. He is against free speech and individual rights. He believes the state comes before his peoples individual needs. He looks like dobby the house elf from harry potter.

    What Is The Difference Between President Boris Yeltsin And Vladimir Putin?

    • Putin has centralized his power to such an extent that democracy, the election, is nothing but a sham. It is a very sad reversal. Russia, post perastroika, had a free press and elections up to about two years ago. Yeltsin ushered in the democratic process in Russia.

    World History: Russian President Vladimir Putin Used Military Force To Suppress A Rebellion In The State Of..? Belarus.
    Chechnya.
    Moldavia.
    Latvia.

    • The country in question is Chechnya, but Boris Yelstin was the first Russian President to send in troops since Wolrd War 2. Boris Yeltsin sent Russian forces to break up the Checnen uprising trying to create a new independent state which against the Russian Constituton written in 1991 after the fall of the Soviet Union. This lasted from 1994-1996 before Russian Troops were withdrawn after Yeltsin signed a Peace Treaty and gave Chechnya limited rule under a Russain apppointed President. Vladimir Putin send troops back into Chechnya in 1999 after a series of attacks by Chechen Rebels most notably the bombing of an Apartment complex in Moscow and the taking of hostages at the Moscow Theater was the straw that broke the Camels back. Vladimir Putin then ordered the a second attack on Chechnya in 1999 that lasted till 2000 or 2002 depending on who you ask before a Russian Federal Peace keeping force was sent in. Serpadic fighting still happens but nothing like what is was between 1999-2001. These are just some of the resions for the conflicts in Chechnya.

    At the end of their first summit meeting in Slovenia Mr Bush described Mr Putin as a straightforward and trustworthy man.

    ===> GW Bush – “I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul”

    Is There A Cooler President Than Vladimir Putin? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcvKmgZwgMM

    I’m not Russian, but I do think Vladimir Putin is the coolest president on the Planet. Many people think Obama is really cool the way he looks in his sunglasses, and all, but Putin is definitely cooler.

    Not only does Putin look cool, but he’s doing a better job with Russia than Obama is doing with America. As cool as Obama looks, he sucks as a president.

    Is the a president cooler than Putin?

    • Who really knows? If I venture a guess, you don’t like President Obama. Did you forget the recent 8 years before President Obama? In current memory the budget deficit went up after we invaded Iraq. Did Obama do this? I think not. Besides Russia, remember when Gorbechev was the president and our president, then Ronald Reagan and I do think President Reagan did a hell of a good job convincing Russian president Gorbechev to tear down that wall. So if you like the idea of cool presidents fine.
      looks can be deceiving.

    Who Would You Rather Have Fighting Terrorists, Obama Or Putin? Responding to recent terrorist attacks in Russia, Vladimir Putin vowed to annihilate terrorists. Obama seems afraid to even use the word terrorism or terrorist.

    • Our president seems to be an apologist towards the Middle Eastern community. Putin reminds me of a Russian Ronald Reagan. He is a man of action. When Ronald Reagan won the presidency, a reporter asked what he would do about the American hostages being held by Iran for more than a year. Responded Reagan, ” At 12:00 noon, I take the Oath of Office. At 12:01 P.M., if Iran still has our hostages—–we go to war.” Incidentally, just before Reagan took the Oath of Office—–Iran released the American hostages. If I was a terrorist—–I would be afraid of Putin.
