Vague but sinister

From the Economist:
Russia’s new foreign policy concept
AS LAUNCHES go, it was more an ominous fizzle than a big bang. At a briefing in Brussels on July 28th, Russia’s ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, answered most questions about the Kremlin’s plans for European security with a mixture of “don’t know” and “wait and see”. But the outlines are clear—and not particularly comforting.....

This was kinda funny though
...A third element may be to promote the “Finlandisation” of Europe, by diminishing American influence (but probably not removing it: Russia likes having some Americans around in Europe in case the Germans start getting uppity)....

Kinda reminds me of the joke about the 200,000 Germans yelling screaming in the street for Obama. When France heard there were 200,000 Germans in the street, they surrendered just in case..
I love the Germans and my neighbor is a great friend and from France. But it's a funny joke.
