    Someone who recognizes that Putin actually has to deal with these nations and their peoples & rebels as neighbors?

    It that's it, count me in. I'm already a troll, bully, liberal, Snowden sympathizer, and Democrat.

    May as well add another frickin' label.

    I'll take it!

      I'm a sycophant, a lockstep Obama drone, hopelessly stupid, and--one of my favorites, not an asshole, because at least an asshole has a useful purpose.  

      I wouldn't claim to define a term someone else coined, but I'm guessing that a Putinapologist is one who casts Putin as a hero in this scenario (followed, sometimes, by Assad) so that President Obama can play the bumbling neocon warmonger.
