Honestly, i don't know the bloke...none of us on this board do. We know Putin about as much as we know Obama, Cameron or any other so-called leader,
which is essentially not at all.
We see them on the TV, we see what they look like, we hear their voices and see their movements, how they carry themselves and how they wish us to
picture them...but we don't know them...but we DO see what they do.
We know what Obama does, we know he orders the mass murder of civillians in far away lands by drone. We know he imprisons American citizens without
proof of a crime, without access to due process. We know he is a hypocrite and supports other hypocrites doing his bidding.
And you know what?
The same is true of just about every-single-political leader out there.
The whiter than white teeth, the easy manner, the sharp dress sense, the carefully timed chuckles and grins, the earnest stares to camera and all the
rest of it are show and diversion to make you think in a particular way about them and their backers, and of course it is the way they want you to
think, not particularly the way you OUGHT to think about them OR those behind the curtain.
Having said that...i'm grateful to have someone like Putin in the world political arena. In actuallity, it doesn't have to actually BE Putin, just
someone who is as strong as he is, and offers the rest of the world a counter-balance and a road block to what would so easily be the relentless and
accellerating march toward a totalitarian world of public dominance and brutal supression of public freedoms, by those i mention.
I see Putin as the emergency brakes on a runaway train loaded with cess pit sewerage hurtling towards a gleaming, fresh and happy town about to
splatter everything in the crap it's carrying.
If Putin is the emergency brake, see if you can work out who the engine and the containers full of crap are...
Like him or loathe him...we need Putin..in fact we need several Putins, or we all will quite soon be literally up to our necks in it.
