Putin Does Cool, Easy Rider Style
Love or hate him, Putin is cool, plain and simple. I would love to kick back and down some beer with him, even without speaking politics, but that would be a bonus too. You have got to respect a real man, unlike the alcoholic bafoon we had under Yeltsin, that the West so loved. No wander the West, that is the Anglos, are in fear, they have no real men to stand up to our Putin and no Thatchers to show their metrosexuals how to be real men either.
Out of the blue, Putin shows up on the bike, riding with style with our boys. Bikers hark back to our Rus (Russian/Ukrainian) heritage, to the Cossacks, who are still out there, protecting our borders, from the Western backed Islamic fanatics.
But this is not just some stunt by Putin. As in this case, in 2002, as President, on New Year's Day, while the West's leaders were still laying around drunk and stoned, Putin jumped into a two seater MIG and flew down to the war zone in Chechnya to give out medals personally. Yup, no brigade of special forces and body guards canvasing every turn, every building, and ever tree. No bunch of suited goons frisking all the people, while the emperors fly in $500 million helicopters or in caravans of armoured jeeps, occasionally running down civilians. No bus loads of tag alongs. Heck, unlike the American emperors, Putin does not ask for all of down town London to be closed down when he comes to visit, something the Queen does not even get.
And lastsly, just look at the pictures and compare Putin to the last two Emperors, the last two American Caligulas and Neros. How's that to make the Yanks weep?
