    If Putin wins will Obama move out of the White House and Putin move in?

    I'd pay good money to know how this op-ed came about. Who were the middle men? Who were the fixers? What are their interests and motivations?

    Putin may have good speech writers, but the words don't stand up to logical evaluation.

    Is his fortune telling of the consequences self fulfilling prophecy?

    His description of the conflict centers on Al Qaeda and somehow omits mention of hungry people in the street.

    His pretty words about the Security Council fail to mention Russian history and paints Russia in the colors of sainthood.

    Can his words about reports of a pending CW attack on Israel by militants be laying a foundation for forthcoming rhetoric following an attack by anyone?

    I wonder how Chechnya feels about "civilized diplomatic and political settlement"?

    I agree somewhat with the misuse of the phrase "American exceptionalism".

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
