How’s That Redial Button Working?

I guess about as good as the “Reset Button”

Secretary of State John Kerry called all the foreign ministers of countries that deal with North Korea following Monday’s nuclear test and all but one of them picked up the phone — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

… At Wednesday’s State Department press briefing, outgoing Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland denied that Kerry was frantically trying to reach Lavrov. (The Cable has confirmed that Nuland will soon be replaced at the podium by White House Deputy Press Secretary Jen Psaki.)

“There’s been nothing frantic about it. He reached out to Foreign Minister Lavrov yesterday, made it clear again today that he’s ready to talk whenever Foreign Minister Lavrov can find the time,” Nuland said.

We are, and continue to be, so boned.

    I think Foreign Minister Lavrov, in his own way, just told Lurch to F#$% off.

    I appears that Russia also has “Call Display” technology.

  3. JeffS says:

    I think you’re right, Major Dad. Which means Lurch is no longer a useful tool to the Commies.

    And after all those years of loyal service….

    Last I heard, we had an ambassador in Moscow. Why not send him over to the Foreign Ministry to inform the Russian government, officially, that we are displeased with Li’l Kim’s antics, and intend to do something about it? Let them guess what. Maybe that would give Lurch the opportunity to not call Lavrov back. This bunch is so childish that such an act would not surprise me.
