High School Diplomacy?

Russia has reportedly cut ties with NATO today - a day after NATO cut ties with them:

Norway's Defense Ministry...says the country's embassy received a telephone call from Russia's Defense Ministry on Wednesday, saying Moscow plans "to freeze all military cooperation with NATO and allied countries."

NATO foreign ministers Tuesday suspended formal contacts with Russia as punishment for sending troops into Georgia.

This is the Diplomatic equivalent of "Well, you tell Jane that I'm not talking to her EITHER!" Much like in that case, all of Janes' friends are rolling their eyes on the other side of that phone.
