Putin may well be 'a thug' but he is a smart thug who wants to advance Russian interests and will do whatever it takes to accomplish his goals. There doesn't appear to be another world leader who can now match him. Thatcher or Reagan would certainly have not allowed Russia to advance this far, and the previous US president would have done better as well.

That was dropping the sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Georgia which the Bush Administration and its Allies had initiated and also scrapped the frozen relations the same countries adopted as well.. Of course Obama also dropped the missile defense shield in Poland and Czechoslovakia, and all without concessions or promises or treaties or anything from the Russians. Of course, as a consequence, he is viewed by all who matter as an inept fool, though this was obvious from his earliest days as President.
Obama has not done as much for America and its Allies as he has done for America's enemies.BBC NEWS | Europe | Button gaffe embarrasses Clinton
