    WTF?!?

    Guys ... you really need to relax a bit more, and understand that posting a meme isn't "hostility".
    It's just me making fun of the level of schizophrenia and butthurt in the world these days.

    Simply put Putin is probably laughing because he seems to get away with far more than he does not. You can claim international pressure, or fear of Canada and Harper, or worry about "international opinion", or whatever else all you would like. But the reality is Putin is doing what he wants to.

    Prove me wrong...
    Putin is a much better chess player than Obama or Harper.

    The analogy does not work. Too many nations have already expressed to Putin in one way or another to get out of Ukraine. I hate to burst your bubble but Canada and Harper did nothing unique here.

    I doubt ole Harper was the reason. Putin had a few run-ins over the course of the summit.

    On the international stage, it appears that is truth.

    Today's Putin is the cumulative end-product. An ex-KGB Lieutenant Colonel who never lost his love of the Soviet empire.

    Probably very true. And if you think about it would explain well both Putin's arrogance in dealing with other world leaders (hence my comment about him probably laughing at Harper's comments) and his aptitude for looking at a map in terms of how the Soviet empire looked at a map. From the outside it appears that Putin wants the same country buffers between himself and his enemy, anyone in the West. And it would explain well his actions in Ukraine and elsewhere, always with an eye on who is dealing with who who economically and militarily.

    And therein is the problem. As a metaphor, you can't just kidnap a woman today simply because she was once a teenage girlfriend.

    Metaphor considering, suggestions in dealing with Putin today? Well, other than harsh words from big bad Canada?
