Sad thing is...he's probably right. The United States can't mind its own damn business. It spends more time worrying about other countries than its own. Which is a big reason why our nation is falling apart at the seams.

Yes but modern day totalitarians/dictators/stalin ists are a laughable oxymoron these days.

Just ask Mubarack and Gaddaffi.

It is easy to kick out one person like Putin, but I am 100 % certain that Russians would regret that for two reasons.

Firstly, oil and gas will come under US control, just like Khodorkovsky planned it. Then the profits will no longer benefit the Russian people (who have a lot of catching up to do) but benefit US oligarchs, not the US population. Russia cannot afford to have these profits skimmed off like they skimmed them off Iran before 1979.

A united and prosperous Europe has never been in America's interest, so a potential US oil and gas ownership could and would be used to weaken Europe. We see this winter what the consequences of playing with Russian gas could be. A US owner of Russian oil/gas could and would then exercise influence to delete a financial transaction tax, which ironically came into being after the US financial industry had too much influence that was not used responsibly - they messed up the world big time.

Putin is the lesser evil, or do we really hand all powers to Wall Street? Once the power is transferred to Wall Street, you have also lost your democracy, irrevocably. People like Putin rule for a limited time.

The second reason to keep Putin, or another resolute man, is Chechnya. If you loosen the grip on Chechnya, you get another rogue state. One of the heroin routes from Afghanistan to Western Europe goes through Chechnya, and if you allow these people to do what they like, you might find much of Russia and Europe awash with heroin.

Putin is the lesser evil and I hope, Russians start understanding that. Democracy is all very nice, but you can't eat it, and until we can devise a democracy that is not run by the 1 %, we need to be very careful.

Of course. No other president in American history has ever created international turmoil. Considering this country has been at war or conflict with another country since it's creation, any contribution from Obama is fairly minimal.
