    He obviously new he was in front of the camera, but strewth...did you see how scared some of these guys were. He did handle this 'like a boss'

    Here's another.



    He probably worse himself, but you have to love the way he's gone about these things.

    Thank God we have Putin now, after years of disastrous international policies by the Bush and Obama administration

    So they skimmed 6.8 billion off the top and he didn't get his share.

    No wonder the fucker was pissed off.

    The problem with absolute power is that it corrupts absolutely. What these thuggish despots like Putin consistently fail to grasp is that if society is to function efficiently and fairly then mechanics of government must be made subject to a rule of law that transcends self-interest, nepotism, cronyism and downright criminality. Since that would mean they themselves would lose out and therefore would defeat the purpose of their very being, there can be no such laws and it is then inevitable their corruption will infect eventually all strata of society. Inefficiency is the bastard brother to corruption which in turn spawns its twin progeny, incompetence and inferiority. Which is why Putin's Russia will always be a fuckup.

    Eventually, they will eat themselves and chaos will reign.

    Corruption is simply evidence of the human condition but when it becomes the system the host is invariably doomed.

    Anyone who admires Putin is clearly a fucking idiot.

    I never thought I'd say it, but well done Bill O'Reilly.

    Now Putin is doing a Trumpesque toys out of the pram because O'Reilly properly labelled him "a killer".

    I wonder how many other National leaders can impress with their language skills?
    I'm not lauding Putin I'm just surprised to see his skills on public display.

    A killer with a few things like a sizeable yacht that would have taken hundreds of years to pay for on his declared income...

    Admit he's charismatic and clearly intelligent, but nobody should let that blind them.


    And oh yes, it's highly probable that he has personally authorised murder.
