Vladimir Putin: dotting some eyes

It might yet happen that I, in my senior waning years will start respecting a dictator. Well, no, hardly - but this speech is another confirmation of my belief that one must listen carefully to what everyone says, no matter where that everyone is on the political map.

Some more obvious concoctions could be safely ignored, but several points - like the one about reselling the Daesh-controlled oil (hey, Erdogan, how is that business going?), the Libya fiasco, the long string of other State Department (read White House) political and military failures - all these are great finger-in-the-eye comments.

The eye, though, is not blinking...
