Skip to comments.Motyl: Putin, Just Evil Enough
Posted on 07/25/2014 7:11:44 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Vice President Joe Biden recently confided a sensational bit of news to the New Yorker magazine: In a 2011 meeting with Vladimir Putin, he had actually told Russia's then-prime minister that he had no "soul." Even more remarkable was Putin's response. "And he looked back at me, and he smiled, and he said, 'We understand one another.' "
Many people -- in Ukraine, Europe, America and even Russia -- probably share Biden and Putin's estimation of the Russian president's spiritual condition. In saying Putin has no soul, it means he seems to lack both the capacity to feel emotions and to show empathy.
Russia's leader certainly has a long record of inhumanity. He was an agent of the Soviet secret police, a criminal institution with a record that goes back to the purges of Stalin, a record more bloody than that of the Nazi SS.
John Dunlop of Stanford's Hoover Institution wrote in "The Moscow Bombings" that there is strong evidence to suggest that Putin was in on the plot to bomb two apartment buildings in Moscow in September 1999, in which 300 Russian citizens were killed and several hundred others were wounded. He says the bombings were blamed on Chechen rebels as a pretext to invade Chechnya.

Putin is a serious person. Obama and Biden are not.
Agreed. Biden himself is a disgrace to the human race.
KGB Putin is an evil psychotic terrorist who threatens the entire world. Western civilization must fight Putin’s genocidal regime and defeat it, as Ronald Reagan, with God’s help defeated the EVIL EMPIRE Putin loyally served.
Does everyone know that Biden’s son is doing a big business deal in the eastern part of the Ukriane? As usual, follow the money. The Obama administration has been doing underhanded deals with the Ukraine government.
Biden never said that.
The rest of the article is spot on.
And someone smack that stupid smirk off his face.
I don’t believe the story. Joe is a congenital liar.
And, as a supporter of the shredding of babies, he’s personally, directly responsible for many thousands of times more murders than Putin ever will be.
That is just Russian propaganda. The company his son is a board member in is called Burisma and it has only 3% share of Ukraine’s gas production. Russians lie it into something big. There are many Russian spin doctors working 24/7 to create new lies. If you take a stance that you’ll buy any bridge if the seller says Obama does not want you to have it then you’ll be making it that much easier for Russian propaganda department.
