Funny arguments here.
People arguing that the USSR wasn't Russia and that Russia wasn't the USSR. Russia was the imperialist regime that militarily dominated the other unwilling member states of the USSR. "Evil Empire", remember?
Putin = KGB, remember? If Goebbels became "president" of Germany, would we have invited Germany into NATO?
Clearly, this is just another case of the Messiah being stupid. Rather than invite the enemy into our NATO war councils, we should just disband NATO.
We should disband NATO anyway and let the wonderful Europeans pay for their own defense for a change.

American Thinker: China's manifest destinyIn the 19th century, China reluctantly ceded control of the Far East and Siberia to Russia. During the past 50 years, however, Chinese territorial claims to the area have steadily increased. Chinese communist founder Mao Zedong and leader Deng Xiaoping both publicly asserted that the Russian cities of Vladivostok and Khabarovsk were Chinese. Some Chinese historians have claimed that the current China—Russia borders are unfair and that Russia 'stole' the Far East by force.
'The Chinese view this region [Siberia] historically as their territory,' said Larisa Zabroskaya, an Asia expert. Moreover, Russia's Far East population increasingly identifies itself with the east — looking to South Korea, Japan and China for guidance on matters of governance and culture. As a result, the region has become less connected to Moscow and the ideals of 'Euro Asia.'
In Moscow, apprehension and uneasiness concerning China's influence in the Far East has gradually increased. In 2002, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned, 'If people here [Far East] will not regenerate their region and economy, they will all speak the Asian language.'

Hillary says that putin does not have a soul. He is a KGB, so he does not have a soul. It is a negative contemptuous points made against Putin. He is so bad that he does not have a soul. (Thus Bush seeking for the soul is stupid). Her speech is no different from Scarecrow Akhbar’s remarks.
Putin answers shortly and makes the audience laugh at the stupidity of Hillary. He says first of all a Politician has to have brain (which means that Hillary does not have brain) to say such a negative contemptuous and totally meaningless crap. Remember that Hillary now is a major player against Putin. The KGB upbringing of Putin can be pretty much characterizes by Henry Kissinger. Kissinger asked Putin – what was his background. Putin intending to shock Kissinger answers – KGB, as it is commonly associated with ruthless persecution of dissidents, which can be only compared with persecution of birthers on DP.
- What Division?
– Inside of the USSR or outside?
– Well, all decent people started their carrier in intelligence, including myself, - resumes Kissinger.
dealing with Putin Obama and Hilary cannot use the same “arguments” as ones used against birthers here. The failure of CIA would start with a disrespect of professional qualities of the KGB counter-intelligence division, such a disrespect would be very unprofessional. The same is with military rivals. Obama and Hillary cannot even combined put up anything against Putin’s intelligence. They are highly unprofessional.
