    That means that for all the negative things I could say about Obama, I at least don't have to worry about him hiring contract killers to go after Boenher or Limbaugh.

    You really think that Putin is anything like Bill Clinton? And what sort of BS is this page anyways that's part of the "Memorial Library"! Honestly man, you couldn't of bought into Putin's propaganda that much... This is the same guy who called the fall of the soviet union as one of the great political TRAGEDIES of the 20th Century. The same guy who has been cracking down on opposition leaders, or anyone who opposes him routinely, and has even gone so far as to have direct say in the nations news coverage. The guy has been in power in one way or another for 20 years, man! At what point are you willing to call a spade a spade and acknowledge he's a dictator. Really man, I get that you think the US is evil, but regardless of what you think of the US, you really going to stand up for this guy?

    I'm making no comparisons between anybody. I'm saying that there are plenty of explained away coincidental deaths here in America. And I'm not jumping to your conclusions because you have a burr in your saddle over Putin's success in reversing attempts by the US/EU to squeeze Russia out of Ukraine.

    It's not just about Ukraine though, it never was. If it was just isolated to that one country then this wouldn't be a problem at all but it isn't and you've gotta see that. Whether it was the invasion in Georgia, suppression of free press inside Russia, the jailing of opposition leaders, how he seems to want to support every two bit dictator out there right now (I can get the strategic reasons mind you, but it can also be said that you are judged by the friends you keep), what he's said about former Soviet Union, the continued provocative actions on many NATO's borders with Russian Fighters, etc...

    At some point, the man has to cross a line for you doesn't he? Or will you continue to make excuses after he's plunged the Europe into WW3?

    Edit: Oh how could I forget the fact that he's continued to hold onto power for almost 20 years now... yeah that doesn't say Dictatorish at all.

    I just heard on the news the opposition leader was shot to death in a drive by, and that Putin would personally oversee the investigation.

    That seems to be your answer right there who did it, comrade.

    Oh please. Leave me alone with your aggravation for Putin, while all along you ignore or excuse much the same at home. The reporter for the San Jose Mercury that blew the lid off of Reagan's mischief with regards to Iran/Contra, was found dead in his apartment with TWO bullets to his head, and it was ruled SUICIDE!!!!! Obama was going to improve whistle blower protections, he claimed when campaigning. In fact, he has imprisoned more whistle blowers than any of his predecessors! Frankly I'm sick of your self righteousness, while pointing critical fingers at other world leaders. Suppose you clean house at home before telling others about their crimes. Or said another way, remove the beam from your own eye so that you might see clearly to help your neighbor improve.

    Last I checked, Obama, or any US leader wasn't advocating bringing back one of the most oppressive and brutal governments in the world's history. You know how many deaths the Soviet Union were responsible for? Or just simply how many people suffered under their brutal rule? Quite frankly, I'm tired of your self-righteousness, trying to equate what's going on in Russia with anything that has ever occurred in the US, thinking the US is just as bad (or dare I say worse) as that dictatorship now setting up in Kremlin, just a few dozen feet from where this man was shot! But fine, you want to make excuses for the mad man in Russia, go right ahead, you're free to after all. It's not like your in Russia and have to worry about being locked up or killed for opinions...

    Edit: Again, all the ones you brought up (and not well sourced might I add) didn't come up two days before a rally against their authority! Maybe if Reagan had killed the reporter prior to blowing the lid, then you'd have a point that he was trying to stop the damaging information from coming out. But the damage had already been done, there was no reason to do it! Think about these things man!

    Putin is nothing but a fascistic, neo-imperialist, leader. The 2018 elections cannot come soon enough.
