    The backward mentality sort of pushes us to behave backwards like them. So I was asking why should we behave like them in order to be taken seriously? Why cannot they behave more civil like us and be more reasonable instead?
    If you understand that that is how it is, then why do you keep asking the same question?

    Putin has certainly been paying attention to Obama's history.

    The thing is what we value as strength they interpret as weakness. I mean Obama comes forth with diplomacy, civility, understanding, reaching out, partnership, communication, easiness, calmness, etc. This here is strength! Some people would panic and unleash hell after Putin's Nazi-fascist hegemony behavior in 21st century! Instead look at the calmness in Obama. Not even a mini facial expression as he makes his positions!

    But nooooooo! The assumption among them seems to be "One is weak unless proves in deed their capability to inflict damage upon them!" Unless there is blood on the ground and military positions bombed one is perceived apriori as weak!

    So why should we change to their means of communication if we know that ours is more civil and elevated compared to their backward mentality?

    But we are right with out civil approach and they are wrong? We have higher moral standards. So I guess I am looking for more than "that is how it is" when asking the questions. Why cannot they be more civil like us?

    Because they're animals. There's only one way to deal with an animal.
