The former winter soldier get the snub from the Russians. anyone surprised. Obama said he would get back to Putin after the election. Maybe the Russians no longer care. I believe they aren't concerned with America anymore, realizing they have surpassed us in ability to be seen as a world power and therefore, we are no longer relevant.

As you head off for your Presidents' Day weekend, The Cable would just like to note that it's now been over 72 hours since Secretary of State John Kerry reached out to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov -- without getting a call back.
As The Cable reported earlier this week, Kerry reached out to Lavrov after North Korea detonated a nuclear bomb on Feb. 11, as well as the foreign ministers of Japan, China, and South Korea. Lavrov, who has been traveling in Africa, is the only foreign minister who didn't answer or return Kerry's call. The State Department is trying very hard not to seem upset about the perceived snub.
