Do not underestimate Putin, technically, he is a very good Politician. Russia has an open door policy, regarding Religion, other than the fact, you cannot openly display it, unless you are a Muslim, of course. These people are allowed to have massive gatherings in the streets. In the very near future, 48% of the Russian Army will consist of Muslims. Add to this, the Dictator of the USA, Obama, is in all probability a Muslim. None of this bodes well for the future of Civilization.
I agree with the outer Post’s regarding UKIP. They were the only real hope for the UK. They received between 8 and 10 Million votes, yet only managed to get a couple of members into Parliament, due to manipulation by Cameron, a Bilderberg Man, scared of Islam.

Putin wants to make a Proud and Strong Russia. —-A real Leader Obama wants to make a Weak and Whimpering USA. --"Pathetic traitor ’’ Harper—-has stood toe to toe and nose to nose with both of these Men—- and made Canada Proud. I guess Harper is too strong --Canadians want to be led by a weak kneed , pussy whipped , moronic minded , mentally unstable , miserable excuse for a Man., Take your pick —-Justin or Mulcair.

I trust Putin more than Obama. Putin does what is in the best interest of his nation. Obama is such a fool he doesn’t even know what best interest of his nation is. Perhaps the socialist population should be given a choice between Putins’ leadership vs Sharia law. Then give them what they want.

I am happy to see them step up and solve the problem our idiot politicians created. Secular Assad who fought the Sunni uprising is Russia’s ally… Whereas the Sunni “Syrian rebels” were OUR ally. Don’t you forget that. Russia is a good Christian country that resists the gay/tranny indoctination and “refugee” infestation… Whereas we are a Godless country that is trying to ban the words “he” and “she” out of respect for “transgendered individuals”.

Russia has concealed carry permits for their People, we do not, politicians from both parties in the USA are trying to do away with it.

The Russians are gonna clean up our mess, free of charge to us, save us from the tidal wave of radical Muslim “refugees”, and all you idiots can do is hum and haw about “Jeez I don’t trust them”.

You don’t trust RUSSIA, as your own governments are boasting their support for receiving thousands of radical Sunni “refugees”, busy paying jihadi mercenaries around the world to start “civil wars” in sovereign, secular countries. Think about that for a minute.

Here’s a good way that Russia’s actions won’t affect “western democracies in the future”… STAY THE HELL OUT OF THEIR ALLIES’ COUNTRIES!

Russia sending troops to fight in Syria is both a relief and also scary, because I don’t think anyone can fully trust Mr. Putin.
However Russian troops are experienced and they can make a huge difference in Syria, it’s what happens after the fact that is scary.

Love these reports from the Middle East. We would never find out from our Socialist Media! Especially Iran still threatening Israel! So much for that loser, Obams’s “deal”. Russians in Syria. Well, agree or disagree with Russian Policy, but they are showing far more leadership in dealing with Middle East problems than the Shia Muslim in the White House. The concern is how will this affect western democracies going into the future?
