It takes one to know one, I suppose:
President Vladimir Putin on Monday made his strongest endorsement yet for his friend U.S. President George W. Bush, saying "international terrorism" will claim victory over the international antiterrorism coalition if Bush loses.
"I believe that the activities of terrorists in Iraq are not as much aimed at the coalition as at President Bush personally," Putin said. "The goal of international terrorism is to prevent the election of President Bush to a second term."
"If they achieve that goal, then they will of course celebrate it as a victory ... over America and, to a certain extent, over the forces of the international antiterrorism coalition," Putin told reporters in the Tajik capital, Dushanbe, after a regional cooperation conference.
Putin, however, was quick to point out that his views on the U.S.-led war on Iraq continues to differ from those of Bush and that he will "respect any choice of the American people" for president.
Not unexpected and not even that new, but still hilarious. By the way, if you click on the link to the original article, have a look at the picture. All those stern old men in power... Russia and most countries that split away from the old Soviet Union have a long way to go before there is any equality for women. In fact, even a feminist awareness is still in the future there. If it ever happens. There are days when I truly believe that I'm stark crazy to blog on the issues I do. But what can a goddess do?
