    Can we trust Putin?

    Can we trust Putin concerning getting Syria to turn over their chemical weapons? Curious to hear @The Man and his opinion on this.
    Thanks from Rorschach and Stefan Bandera

    Just thinking if Putin might have an ulterior motive for looking so noble over this. He usually rants and raves about the US and now he is the good guy? What's in this for him? Olympics?

    Syria is the KGB Guy's window into the Med and keeping Assad in power without risking a near conflict with the US is good for the Put. We are not boycotting the Olympcs so that's not an issue.

    one more comment = "Just thinking if Putin might have an ulterior motive" - seriously you are waffling whether the Put has an ulterior motive ?

    Putin is one SLICK Dictator.

    He understands public image as well as Hitler did, but, he is FAR more knowledgeable about the rest of the world, and, their public opinions.

    I just do not know if he is, at heart, a truly EVIL man, or, simply a Russian ruler, who does what has to be done to maintain his own hold on power. In other words, is he an Ivan the Terrible, a Joe Stalin, or, a Peter the Great? (All three being strongarm dictators/Czars...)
