I am not sure that I understand. Perhaps we will never understand each other.

It was I who saw this myself, talked to people myself. I am smart enough to know that media is often a instrument of the regime, that often only official versions are printed. Perhaps it is a tinfoil claim from a tinfoil woman?

I lost my family, not from bullets but from secret gas. I am often told that I should thank Putin for saving my life. Over and over I answer: do I need this life?

That gassing was the stupidest thing I have ever seen. It was not handled properly and you have every right to feel as you do.

Putin's government has made many mistakes, too numerous to count. I do not view him as good for Russia and under a democratic system you can and you must do better.

But, having said that, I can not believe that Putin staged any act that took innocent lives. It just would not make sense, although he surely might benefit from such a act.

As of this time, I have seen no proof of this, and your claim is not new. I am sure you believe it, but I just don't see how Putin could have done this.

But, I will try to keep a open mind and I promise to look back into it to see if I missed anything that might sway my opinion.

Currently, in America, Bush is being blamed for events like hurricanes, storms, voter intimidation, many deaths and of course a war for oil.

All of it is said to be provable and true by all kinds of people. But we know this all to be false and we are expecting even more of it before the election.

I do not know Putin personally but I must be skeptical of claims like this.

I would begin planning for the next election and find some good an honest candidates that can receive national support, and you should continue to be what we call the loyal opposition as you continue to criticize the Putin government. But I do not think you will ever make these charges stick. I would find a better way to say "we need some changes at the top"!

Good luck to you! My grandfather came from someplace in Russia, and my grandmother was from Yugoslavia. I am always interested in the news from your part of the world.

I cannot help but either pity or despise those who support terrorists and try to blame the actions of terrorists on leaders.

You need to get a life. I have children who lived on the streets of Russia begging for food when they were very young.

I have a son who was airlifted almost dead from starvation.

I have another son who has had to take insulin shots at least 4 times daily since he was two years old. And more.

My children don't seek to blame anyone for their misfortunes, and they should make the likes of you drop to your knees in shame. May God forgive you for your scandal-provoking and histrionic lies against others.
