Just swelling with national pride nothing wrong with that.

Probably because he has emotions, normal ones.

As for the potential for being forced into a war and having crazy levels of blatant propaganda thrown at you daily, who wouldn't feel the pressure?

Looks like Putin is a real person,

When would Obama cry for national anthem. Actually he would, the tears of agony and contempt..

The west is forcing his hand. If he was a rough and tough Russian leader, the west would not be pushing him around to get at what they want. The thing is, it is this kind of leader that actually does start a war after being pushed to close to the edge. It is the quiet man that you need to worry about, not the outgoing man. The temper builds and when they get mad, there is no stopping them.

I am meek and try to talk my way of fights, actually not believing fighting is a civil thing. But you don't want to push me too far because there are no rules if I am pushed to far. Everything becomes a weapon and I will never lose unless I calm down. I think Putin is like me.

No, he was a Soviet KGB colonel, a man who was devoted to his nation the Soviet Union and remember's when it meant something to him that he was willing to lay down his life for, his tears are a tear for a system and idiology in which he still has pride but that is now dead, a tear for the departed if you like.

There were a hell of a lot of thing's wrong with the Soviet system, especially after Stalin took over and had he not the system may well have evolved into a democracy anyway as he used purges to eradicate those that were democratically inspired including within the communist party as well as militarising the state which was accelerated even more during and after WW2.

Many Russian's will not see this tear as weakness and as a boy I remember an old soldier who fought against Rommel in north africa crying every night when the BBC used to play the British National Anthem, standing silently saluting and looking somewhere else as tears rolled down his old cheeks.

This therefore was not a sign of weakness in the man who once said that the greatest geopolitical disaster of all time was the break up of the soviet union and also he is not the only member of Russias Soviet new/old guard who want to return there nation to power.

Also remember he may well have had friend's and perhaps best friend's who died for the soviet union, he may himself have put his own life on the line on occasion as well though he look's more of a clerk or book worm type autocrat to me who pretend's at a russian action man image.

But have we contributed by taking former soviet nation's who were member's of the warsaw pact into Nato and encroaching on there territory with what is essentially a military pact, at the same time though we now more than ever can not show weakness, the russian mentality and psychology is such that they respect strength but will take advantage of weakness to be the big dog or bear or indeed only bear in the pack.

Could it be that he sees that the West is forcing him into a position that will undoubtably start another world war?

Does anyone else feel we are being ushered into a world war?

Yes, yes and yes.

I don't see any other option.

Well,he's either a very good actor,or that is real emotion.
If its the latter which I suspect,and he is displaying real hardcore patriotism,that could spell danger for the world in todays times IMO-
He will not back down under any circumstances,if he feels he is being threatened by the west.

Big things on the horizon I think-I just hope they are not mushroom shaped for all our sakes.

Astute observation, this is the danger, he does not want open conflict with the west but will not back down either, he will use covert or not so covert tactic's as well and has already made a point of flexing the russian nuclear capability with warning posturing fly bye's by out of date and obsolet but still lethal Bear bombers as well as deploying russian ICBM carrying nuclear long duration submarine's to stand off point's just outside there old cold war positions or even in those positions in some cases.

The problem is the EU and NATO organisations are poorly organized with disparate response plans, the unifies response is small, this does not posit weakness to the russian's but unpredictability and that is a real problem as they may misread the EU or even have the EU/NATO make errors in judgement that may push the Russians into responding in what they may percieve as tit for tat but the west may percieve as aggression.

It is a serious problem for future stability in the whole western hemisphere of which after all Russia is a large part and at a time of mounting danger's elsewhere in the world, I actually think the new monatery union Russia has tried to set up will backfire on them and others who sign up to it as if they destabilize the EURO and DOLLER any more then they will tip the west and themselves back into serious recession, without customers who will they sell there good's too unless they turn into a old style non global economy network and with the fall of the Western Wealth they will then become the new focus of mass immigration from the still third world as well as other refugees seeking better live's.

Nearly all the inventiveness of the 19th and 20th century's came from the west though the majority of the world's population were elsewhere so what will they invent and will there brave new world be one of technical stagnation and old science.

This is a indirect legacy of failed policys' and idiot politicians the human race has to face along with a lost shining future that is now no longer going to come to pass and that would have benefited all humanity eventually.

Jesus people. Either you hate USA so much that you glorify any country that opposes it, no matter what, or you are victims of Russian psyops. I live in a country next to Russia and believe me - Russia is up to no good. It is by no means saint country and Putin is no hero. Not by a long shot. And this crying most likely is just a trick. Psyops trick, aimed at Russian people, to boost nationalism. Much of things he does these days is to fool his own people to make Russia "stronger". And Russians are loving it. They are blind with chauvinism. They have no respect for other nations. They mock everybody. That is just sad. And Americans are at fault for every Russian problem. And in recent years EU has also been made in some sort of villain. You want to let Russia do whatever they want? That would be end of this civilization. And you think western propaganda is bad? That makes me laugh. Try living next to Russia and having access to Russian media. It is just mind blowing. State owned mass media is worst thing that can happen to freedom of information. Western media are saints when compared to some Russian TV stations. USA government and corporate sector are of course also bunch of a**holes, but nobody is pushing Russia into war. By the looks of it, Russia would love some war.

If you got to see him cry it was designed for a purpose. Nothing uncontrolled that gets released.

At least he is showing some sort of emotion and love for his country...Obama should take notes.

Lets face it wemdont have a clue what he was crying about.
To me it looks like he was moved by the young soldiers sword slashing through the air in his direction.
Is this normal procedure?
Is the Russia - Mongolia relationship really that strong?
You guys have no real clue whats really going on...a perhaps, neither does Putin. He looks like a broken man.
Its sad.

We most certainly are, and it's all about resources and more International Banking power. I am sure Putin is carrying a lot of stress as of lately. ~$heopleNation

My intuition tells me they're tears of gratitude. The cabal is crumbling. Ukraine has lost their ability to "win" the war. Their citizens are openly protesting. Wait till winter hits and there is no gas. The army is deserting. Malaysia and Switzerland are demanding flight control records.

The cabal shot their wad and lost. Putin is very grateful.

I tend to agree with the majority here - some leaders, it has been suggested, even fake crying at such events to win public affection and to show humanity.

I also agree that we (or at least Russia and other large powerful countries) are being ushered into a war, and the West seems to want to paint him as the new Hitler, but there is so much propaganda and false flag events happening its hard for us common folk to determine whats going on...

He's simply a patriot of Russia, the hymn move him just like the America's National Anthem moves most Americans. It's a sign of respect for one's nation, for the hundreds of thousands of lives that have been lost for each of our respective bits of sovereignty and independent freedoms. He's probably doubly moved because he has respect for the warriors he commands who are in harms way.

Obama....could care less about our Anthem and our armed forces, he doesn't even place his hand over his heart, much less know the anthem nor let it move him emotionally.

I don't blame him.

I cry when I hear my own personal anthem:
