Who wears the pants on this planet?

"The US Trade Representative has been threatening to scuttle Russia's entry into the World Trade Organization if they don't shut down AllOfMP3, but nobody in Russia seems to care much about WTO membership.

Maybe it's more like, if you have oil and nuclear weapons you can get away with anything.

*Then imagine if you were veeery good looking on top of all that?*
