Putin is a lock in Russia. He will be part of the controls on the Russian government for the rest of his life.<quoted text>
Yeah, Putin will just cave in to whatever Obama wants....he just wants to get along. Worried about his next election.
Putin knows the US is headed toward collapse. All he has to do is just wait until our debt becomes so great, we won't even be able to afford the day-to-day existence of the government. Russia doesn't have that problem. They have a flat tax, controls on their spending, and they don't run around the world with a tin cup in their hand begging for other countries to pay for their welfare states.
Obama is obviously joined with the Arab muslim extremists. Russia will just wait out the Suni-Shi'ite civil war in Syria while they watch the United States waste itself there backing the very elements that are also at war with the United States. Putin knows it's a no-win situation for the United States.
