    Yep. That's the way they do it.

    You need to work on your logic. They are circumstantially different to the extent that they cannot be equated.

    Putin looks like a silly sophomore with his follow-the-Obama sanctions tomorrow.
    However, the EXXON/MOBIL CEO looks like a traitor opposing sanctions on his buddy Putin.
    It's also looking like Mr. Kissinger is being listened to .

    You think openly supporting a brutal dictator was correct?

    95 percent of people can't agree on the color of grass. I expect and am amused when Iraqi elections or North Korean elections have 95 percent victory. That's what a cheap dictator does. When it comes from Russia , I am disappointed.

    I expect better. When did the Russians become a bunch of amateurs? If you're gonna rig an election, at least make it believable. 75/25 is where it's at.

    (Assuming in place of Russians would be the US) Unless Putin, who sent straightly troops with no signature in Crmiea, they would have spend couple of weeks condemning the new government of Ukraine 24h on TV as illegitimate, they would have used all legal spaces to make an intervention legal, they would gather 54 allies to follow them, they would use the "democracy" as a justification and after a couple of months they would sent the troops ..... or wait, the missiles.

    Putin is acting just as a normal world power would do.

    Sorry, this is Iraq. Correction. Ahab needs to have his campaign manager executed. 5 percent is a poor showing.
