Obamadinejad


Ben Smith:
Russia Today, the slickly produced, often comical Russian government propaganda arm is up with an ad campaign in Britain that sticks a thumb in Obama's eye, merging his image with that of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. British airports have reportedly refused to post the billboard.

And this as the Russian and U.S. governments are reported to be working out the final details in talks over nuclear arms reduction, which have been dragging.
I can't see how this type of state-run advertising would help with diplomatic talks about arms reduction. Am I missing the fine print or something?

Also: I thought that Russia was friendly with Ahmadinejad?
