orbister: Because what sort of civilised nation would abduct people and hold them in extrajudicial detention for years without trial, representation or hope of release?

[i.telegraph.co.uk image 460x288]

Oh yes. That sort. But then, what sort of nation would use overseas assassination of critics and opponents?

Oh yes. It's that one again. The one which likes to claim moral superiority.


Guess what?  America's failings aren't a get out of jail free card for other countries.

Maybe not, but they do entirely remove any right of Americans to lecture from the moral high ground.


"Hey, Hitler You can't kill all those Jews"
"Indians"

SithLord: Because sanctions work so well against someone who knows how to play the game


If Putin was that good at it, he wouldn't have lost Ukraine to begin with.  Tanks and helicopters are always the last resort of a desperate man.

"The right"?  America can say whatever the fark we want, as can any other country.  The fact that we made mistakes doesn't absolve Russia or hers.

Spare Me: I know I know, he's just protecting Russian speaking people.


You know who else thought he was defending his people and used extreme methods during wartime?

That's right, Vlad Tepes.

Maybe the pro-Russian "Crimea wanted out so it's all good" folks can explain why Russia essentially captured the entire Ukrainian fleet?  Was this to prevent fascists in Kiev from using those ships against the Russian speakers in Crimea?

Marmilman: Spare Me: Ya know, Putin used to be hard core Communist. He was an officer on the Berlin wall frantically calling for support when the wall fell. He is on record over the years lamenting the fall of Soviet Union as the greatest travesty of the 20th century. He's always been a totalitarian true believer.

Now he's simple a power hungry dictator, a hard left socialist AND a Nationalist. Now just mix those latter two together and what do you get?

I know I know, he's just protecting Russian speaking people.

He's definitely a nationalist, but not a socialist.


Socialism is just an excuse for dictators (and criminals). Makes good play on the propagation front. You know, "for the People".

Funny word, "whereabouts".  Why isn't it whereabout?  He can only be in one place - at least, until they've finished interrogating him.

Yeah, he's definitely nationalist but his socialist ideals are buried somewhere alongside his rivals. Left or right, both can be totalitarian, he's more like a Tsar.

And maybe, just MAYBE, had Slick Willy not been so eager to sign the Budapest Memorandum, later enforced by Obama, Ukraine might have been able to defend itself.

I mean, who knew that a soldier with a gun is more effective than a President with a pen and phone.
