His political opponents are beaten up, arrested, and some even assassinated . Now there is a world leader that people the world over respect, unlike Bush the muslim-babies-killing talking monkey!
Oh, and guys, there is a "thing" called Chechnya where, you know, muslims are getting killed? Makes you pissed at Russia, right? No? Wait, I forgot, they have to be muslims killed by the US or Israel to matter, right? Russia is our friend, or at least Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran's friend. Delightful people, all of them!
