An American going to space with two Russians? THIS MUST BE A HOAX! According to MYTH Romney, America's Repugniclown presidential candidate, Russia is America's NUMBER ONE Geo-Political Foe! America can't be consorting with her largest enemy. Guessing we won't see cooperation between these nations again if MYTH is elected President. Also, MYTH Romney stated last night that Syria and Iran share a common border and Iran IS Syria's route to the Sea -- It's time to fear ignorant Americans.
