    Have you ever had a friend who asked you for advice or maybe driving directions and what you told them ended up being completely wrong? Even if when you told them it was with the best of intentions. When you see them afterwards, don’t you feel really bad? I wonder if when Russian leaders visit Cuba if they feel that way?

      Medvedev is 47 years old. I don’t think he feels responsible for any advise given by anyone who died long time ago.
