    Putin, Everything You Ever Needed to Know in an Hour

    Give this a listen if you have a chance. I'm listening to it right now and may comment on it later.

    Thank you for posting this. It is fascinating.

    Two weeks ago I completed reading Bill Browder's book - Red Notice. He comes across in his book just as he does in the video you posted. He seems to be a very ethical and moral person. His story is astounding. The book is well written. It reads like a spy novel, but it is all true.

    For people who want to "give Russia a chance" I recommend they watch the video you posted and at least read Browder's book. Putin is a world class thug. Russia will not make the world a nicer and safer place under Putin.

    Great post, Calamity. Thanks.

    Just the opposite, I am afraid.

    There is a reason that Putin is regarded in a very negative manner worldwide. As such, it is very confusing as why POTUS bestows compliments on him at almost every opportunity.
    It does not cost any extra for YOU to do YOUR own research and to LEARN to THINK for yourselves. Stop expecting everyone else to do YOUR work for YOU.

    I don't think so. POTUS has many bad qualities, but that type of international political ignorance isn't one of them. This goes deeper.

    Putin is truly monstrous (something that was perfectly evident to me prior to this video), and it is incredible that people here deign to run defense/interference for the guy, nevermind Trump.

    Yes. That is the worst part of this election/new president cycle.

    Gee, I tried that kind of OP once, and everyone complained that it too long and stupid to post...

    I am however going to watch the video so that I can competently talk about the issue.

    It will be time well spent.
