If you have not seen it, please read Vladimir Putin’s op-ed in today’s New York Times. It is always nice to have a Russian explain democracy and the will of the international community regarding international law to American citizens. He must have learned about it at the KGB Academy. Interesting that he understands American freedom of the press, even if he inhibits it in his own country.
This only reinforces what I wrote about in my previous post. Mr. Putin is trying to poke us in the eye over Syria and this is just one more example. He is trying to make Russia look good (and stronger) at the expense of the United States.
Based on the comments I’ve seen coming out of Congress, Mr. Putin may actually provoke the very thing he purports to want to save us from doing.
My favorite line from his piece is this: “We are different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”
Why thank you, Mr. Putin, I never would have known that.
