    Does Putin Have a Point in his Op-Ed? [W:83]

    In an Op-Ed in the New York Times, Putin bypassed diplomatic channels and spoke directly to the American people.

    Among his arguments:

    -The UN must be allowed to work.
    -Attacking Syria will destabilize the region
    -The opposition used chemical weapons, not Assad
    -Diplomacy must be used instead of force
    -America is not exceptional

    How much of his argument holds some water, and how much is BS?

    Re: Does Putin Have a Point in his Op-Ed?

    I'm wondering how many Russian newspapers would be allowed to give Obama full access to write an op-ed. Just wow.

    How many Russian politicians would be trashing Putin as ours are doing to Obama? And let's not forget the Obama bashers on radio and TV.

    America should be proud of its freedom and how it is undercutting its President. Many in the GOP laugh with glee at what they feel is a Pootin victory and openly cheer for him. They need to move to Mother Russia.

    Do you have a link so others can read Putin's statements firsthand?

    Obama's stupidity has created this environment where Putin can come on stage and look like a statesman. Obama is a clown. OF COURSE it is a propoganda victory for Putin...one he didnt even have to work for. You think we are HAPPY about that? We are disgusted by the moronic actions of your boy. But then...with Obama and that clown Kerry on the stage, ANYONE can look good.

    Your "boy" Pootin, as you called Obama a "boy" is winning because of the enemy within, the GOP. Own it.

    Putin is winning because Obama is a moron. Plain and simple. Obama jumped the shark, threatened to 'punish' Syria, then lost what he expected as the sure support of the UK and then SUDDENLY he found the need to go to congress, to backtrack, to find others trying to support his attacks. He flopped, he floundered, he embarrassed both himself and the country. He made it easy for Putin to step in. Putin is playing chess...Obama is playing checkers. The ONLY reason Putin looks good is because your boy looks so pathetic.

    You have all the talking points down. Enjoy your President thrown under the tank while Pootin gets a free ride from his Country or they die. I bet you forgot they were commies and are still supplying Syria and Iran with high-tech weapons. You arm-chair generals make Putin's job easier one treachorous post at a time.

    I agree, it does seem odd that as Obama flails about cluelessly, Putin has suddenly become the "Go to" guy for American newspapers.

    It wasn't always this way in the USA. We'll constantly battle on the Internet over revision and trash all of our pols in front of the world. Meanwhile, Communist Russia allows ZERO tolerance of dissent in any way, allowing Pootin to look like the savior.
