Anders Fogh Rasmussen, my favorite Dane since motherfucking Hamlet, is getting crazier and crazier:

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Wednesday the Western military bloc is seeking greater Russian assistance for international operations in Afghanistan.

Speaking to reporters after talks with President Dmitry Medvedev, Rasmussen said he was inviting Russia to step up its assistance in Afghanistan, including by supplying helicopters, spare parts and fuel, and by training pilots.

This time the Russians will be equipped with laser beams and Voltron. The locals are sure to be thrilled about a narrative of essential continuity between NATO and the Russians. Can we get a Lester Grau op-ed or something to smack some sense into AFR?
