Russia Handles Greenpeace

This is how you take care of Greenpeace:

A Greenpeace icebreaker that entered Russia’s Arctic without permission to protest offshore energy exploration is leaving after being threatened with gunfire by that country’s coast guard.

“It was repeated several times in open conversation that they were threatening that if we didn’t leave the Northern Sea Route that they would fire on our ship,” Christy Ferguson, a Canadian crew member on the Arctic Sunrise steaming back to Norwegian waters, said Monday.

I’m sure this would never happen if Barack Obama were president, and we had all of that “smart diplomacy” up and running. . .
