Today at a summit in Toluca, Mexico, he issued what he probably figured was a pretty stern warning to the Ukrainian government: http://twitter.com/#!/MajorCBS/status/436222526927024128 http://twitter.com/#!/NewsBreaker/status/436218398884626432 The strongest possible terms? Hardly. http://twitter.com/#!/josephkoss/status/436221157893623809 What an absolute joke.
