With Barack "Insane" Obama firmly checkmated yesterday by Vladimir "The Fox" Putin, the neocon elites have to find new kindling to instigate a war to help their allies in the Middle East: Al Queda.
With Putin and his cagey foreign secretary, Lavrov, skillfully seizing upon John "Blabbermouth" Kerry's musing about handing over chemical weapons, Obama is left with a face-saving exit courtesy of his Russian counter-part. However, the price for Obama is horrendous.

This post should not be taken as pro-Putin. It is about facts.

Politically, he totally outclasses Obama, who is a mere infant, when compared to Putin, the man.
