    It's been obvious that something has been going on with Russia for years now. Always in the background the fact that Putin was 'former' KGB was lurking. In the past year to year and a half, the weird has been getting louder. This is the first realistic piece I've seen on what may be going on or at least where to look:

    He's a heavy handed guy. More countries need clean rap sheets before they can condemn Russia, unfortunately. Sure he kills people, and cracks down on the press, but isn't that in vogue these days?

    Too true. Unless of course the press is already in your pocket (American Democrats).

    The press run more favourable coverage of repubs, than dems. Look up the numbers, how could a liberal biased media do that? Unless the republicans are correct 100% of the time...haha.

    Are you serious? Where are you getting these numbers? Only favorable content for Conservatives is on talk radio shows like Hannity and Limbaugh. Next time you find me a show, story, article that criticizes an American Democrat, you show it to me.

    Why does a nation need a clean rap sheet before they can condemn Putin for his bad behavior?
