FYI: there are absolutely people here (a few as I said), who admire Putin, at least one of which is a die-hard Putin supporter. He doesn't seem to post much anymore. But when he did it was always pro-Putin, pro-Russia propaganda/BS from notoriously pro-Putin websites.By your own admission it's a "few" and if you read between the lines of your own post it's ONE GUY who DOESN'T EVEN POST MUCH ANYMORE.
And on the strength of that, you accuse verity of being a "Putin admirer", which isn't much different than being a Stalin admirer, which really sucks. You owe verity an apology.
And for the record, if you tally up all the terrorist acts on planet earth since 1945 (just to pick an arbitrary point in time), I think you will find that the VAST majority of them are committed by Muslims.
Which might mean that in the case of this train you owe PUTIN an apology.
Your responses are so filled with idiocy and illogic that it’s difficult to reply. First of all, I DID apology to ‘verity’ for asking him if he was a Putin admirer. I didn’t realize at first that he didn’t know very much about the former KGB official. And, again, I didn’t ‘accuse’ him of being a Putin admirer, I only asked. It was either that or he just didn’t understand how Putin and the KGB/FSB operate.
Second, when I used the word “few” to describe some FRers, I was clearly referring to those here who *admire* Putin, not necessarily support him, although enough here do seem to stand with him on some things, apparently not having a clue that Putin himself is a terrorist and likely has operatives in islamic terror groups like al-qaeda. Or that he was supplying arms to Saddam Hussein...while we were at war with Iraq!
Third, you yourself compare Putin to Stalin, yet you say I owe Putin an apology for suspecting he might be involved in an act of terror?
Your overly emotional, even angry response to my simply asking if KGB Putin might have some involvement in this is quite telling about you. I think I’ll go over some of your previous posts on FR. I see that you have absolutely nothing to contribute on your FR home page, despite your being a member for 8 years.
