Russian mini-submarine rescue and "international cooperation"

I watched coverage of the Russian minisub rescue this morning on ABC or NBC (sorry to be imprecise, but it doesn't really matter which interchangeable MSM/DNC unit I am talking about) this morning. The reporter described the rescue efforts of the British (using American technology and aid).

The reporter then compared this rescue with the Russian sub that was lost with no survivors in 2000 after Vladimir Putin refused Western aid. The reporter added that this rescue showed the value of "international cooperation."

No. This rescue showed the value of British and American help and technology. It also showed the value of British and American goodwill.

Nothing else.

The next time the Russians rescue one of our subs, I will retract this statement.
