    No, that was not a good selection.

    I think Mr. Putin is very dangerous man and very intelligent one. He doesn't show what his intentions are and that makes him even more dangerous. He has already done good job in taking Russia back to where it was: government ruling everything, breaking the opposition and limiting the freedom of speach.

    I concur - the man is too intelligent to be ignored.

    I don't know how I feel about the guy personally. Honestly, Russia has turned into a cowtown-esque shoot 'em up since the fall of Communism - if i lived in such a terrifyingly crime riddled place, I might think Putin was a fabulous man. He is good at restoring order, after all. But, then there's the aspect of stomping out individual rights, and media censorship, and throwing Garry Kasparov in prison for having a dissenting opinion. That's scary stuff in its own right.

    Wildcat, you didn't even explain which part was false.
    I am growing weary of your high-minded micro-answers.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Excuse me. I only said what I think.

    I understand you are an American. You said that the aforementioned gentleman is not worse than your leaders.

    I disagree. He has a lot more power than your leaders. Do you know the incident that took place in London? Do you know what has happened in Tchetchenia? Do you know of the plight of the Finno Ugrian peoples, especially the Mari, in Russia today? Did they have a fair election in The Mari Republic? Who leads the country there, a Mari or a Russian?

    Are the leaders of the individual states in America handpicked by Bush? Is there such an extreme and abject poverty In America as there is in Russia, in spite of all the oil and gas revenue? Do the cars stay two days at the border of Canada and the US? Is the American mob taking over the crime scene in Canada and Mexico and South America? Are the local elections held in individual states of America a Circus governed by the White House? Is the Army in the US. absolutely corrupted? Do the judges in America ask Bush what the verdict should be in each important case? Are the journalists in America shot at their front doors by the order of the FBI?

    Do you want me to ask all the questions?

    Thank you, Wildcat, for saying exactly what I wanted to -- the same set of patent differences -- in response to the same assertion. There is calling an elected official a lousy bum, and then there is stepping back to comprehend the license with which one, in certain places, can and can't say that.

    Yes. You ask the right question all right.
    It is the TIME Magazine answer what is wrong.

    A family of nations cannot succeed as a nation-state.

    And that is the crux of the matter in the history of Russia.
    The Romanovs tried it, the Communists tried it and now VVP tries it.
    It is not going to work. The repression the try needs will unavoidably bring about a new revolution. In time.

    You are right. Russia is dangerous.
    When it tries to succeed in the impossible venture it has no other choice but to turn the aggression out again.

    Yes.

    The last act of the show is just about to begin.
