It's just that Putin kills his enemies so freely.

Having alot of family in Ukraine and other areas of Eastern Europe I've never been fooled with our "Friendly Russians". My father spent two years in communists concentration camps and I could tell you some stories that would horrify you.
Infact things are all that different these days. Even during the Ukrainian "Orange Revolution" not long ago many Ukrainian democratic activists disappeared. I forget the exact number but it was close to 1,000 people just wiped off the face of the earth without a trace. For those of you not familiar with Ukraine it's a nation of close to 50,000,000 people that the Russians use to control under their Soviet empire. They are still trying to pull strings. Infact another little known fact is that Putin was ready to roll in troops to put down the democratic movement going on in Ukraine but Colin Powell told Putin if you roll your tanks into Ukraine the United States will be ready for a war.
I don't mean to hijack the thread but this is just one story about our friendly russian buddies that you see Bush shaking hands with from time to time. Putin IMO isn't much better than Stalin, Lenin, and the rest of the commie leaders. He's just killed less people and has been able to keep his nose a bit cleaner. He'll be exposed soon enough as their is a growing Russian population who won't tolerate the brutality going on there. I have friends that give me updates via email from time to time and believe it or not sometimes they make comments that they are fearful of the emails coming back to haunt them with "The black van" showing up in their driveway. It does happen over there.
Basically as twisted as this sounds I can respect Al Qaeda more for admitting they want to kill us compared to the Russians who always seem to have a front of others killing Americans on their behalf. Actually they are both gutless.

A lot of Eastern European history has been buried since the days of Lenin. I hope someday it can be reconstructed - not just the bad things (which are very important), but the good as well.
