    Biden vs Putin. Round One Done, two in progress

    Round one, only Biden, Putin, Blinken and Lavrov present, went 45 minutes or so now done. Round two now underway with eight Russian and five American participants past the hour mark. Some arms control discussions apparently top of the agenda in this round.

    The only opening excitement was in terms of Yankee and Russky media fighting for position. Swiss coppers called to settle things down. Several media folk not allowed in.

    Separate and we emphasis 'separate' press conferences planned at some point latter.

    We are being told that the Americans requested this arrangement so as not to give "legitimacy' to the Russian leader whatever the hell that means.

    Biden apparently wants a 'stable' relationship with the bear.

    The term "cold piece' is being bantered about.

    Stay tuned but don't expect any surprises.

    Yes, terrible translation service.

    A very successful conference by Putin, many issues discussed. I hope Joe can match it, I hope he will be up to the challenge.

    A pleasant atmosphere only disturbed by that prick Matthew Chance from CNN. What a farking idiot. Unbelievable.

    Lots of stuff to cover but I don't want to miss Biden.

    I hope the readout is clearer,

    Crap production.

    No unexpected questions.

    When is Biden speaking?

    I suspect it's more because the dull murderous dictator bangs on for fucking hours and Biden needs a nap after his long flight.

    The anti Russian neo mcarthyite US media is in a tizzy because Joe Biden was being too diplomatic with Putin

    It's Putins own stupid fault for agreeing to this summit. It was one big waste of time. Thanks to the US media , the summit would only raise the temperature rather than lower it.

    Thing seemed to have gone rather swimmingly. A number of issues were touched on.

    I actually stopped watching as soon as questions from the American media in particular. These guys never seem to focus on anything positive. Watch a sickening collection. These war mongers can go to well as far as the war mongers on TD. I say enough is enough. No doubt you bunch will be along soon with your nonsense.

    It was a summit. Good. Let the media ask what they wish - it'd make a nice change for the Russians to see how that is done. Like with China . . . talk the talk and well . . .

    Thats because outrage and over-the-top ridiculous questions make money and make careers.

    Its not about "news" or "reporting" or "journalism" or even an attempt to clarify anything or help the US, its the media taking care of the media at the expense of literally anything. No bar too low, and no corpse too fresh.

    Good Lord . . . you and Slick reading ZeroHedge and feeling all warm and runny inside. The reporter made a claim, Biden disputed it and corrected her.

    Slick why are you so defensive of LatinKaren yet see Biden's response as something unacceptable?

    I didn't give any indication whatsoever as to what I thought of Bidens response in my post, you stupid old fool.

    I just like seeing him catch heat and get flustered.

    I'd rather have a doddering Biden than a fit Trump and it seems from world leaders that most of the world agrees. Biden has already gone a long way to repairing the damage to Americas allies caused by Trump. He is not perfect by any stretch and Trump has left a low bar but he understands diplomacy. I doubt Trump could even spell it. I doubt Trump will run again, his ego couldn't take another defeat.

    Well, Biden's not doddery and Trump wasn't fit.

    Whichever way you slice it or dice it the orange buffoon caused massive damage, both domestically and internationally.

    IMO, a joint press conferences would have implied a mutual understanding, and the optics would not have been good.
    as it is they both claim some that they stated their cases and are working toward a resolution that would be beneficial to both countries.

    Zero Hedge ?
    You are really digging deep to find negative Biden content.

    That's quite mainstream by his standards.
