Putin: New sheriff in town

PutinSheriffCartoon “There’s a new sheriff in town” by Christo Komarnitski

A highly representative sample of comments about Russian president Vladimir Putin being currently posted on popular US news sites such as Yahoo News:

For the first time in my 65 years, I am ashamed of my President, and proud of a Russian leader!

yes…times sure have changed… I grew up thinking that Russia was evil….cause that’s what the American press told me. strange when you have more confidence in the “enemy” than you do one of your own”

I trust Putin more than Obama

At least Putin is a leader and will deal with evil in a meaningful manner.

Thank God for Putin – HE has a set on him, unlike baby Obama.

I can’t recall EVER being sympathetic to Putin or Russia, but on this one point, they have my deepest sympathy and respect for what they are trying to do about this terror attack.

Putin is one hell of a president we need one that strong. He is doing a great job keep it up.

Putin is a good President! He does what he say’s, and no Bull!

Message to Putin: go Ivan the Terrible on them.

Why am I jealous that Russia has Putin? Maybe we should just let Putin take care of the ISIS problem because we have failed to do anything but spend a bunch of money and arm rebels.

At least Putin will stand and fight. Obama is either an ISIS sympathizer or a coward.

Is there anyone here who doesn’t think Putin’s words have more bite than Obama’s?

Kill them all Mr. Putin. Mr. Obama doesn’t have the stones to do much of anything except talk.

Putin is the one world leader who has the balls to carry out what needs to be carried out. Obama is still waiting for his to drop.

My feeling is Putin will not be quite as sedate as Obongo and actually do something to protect his people. It is what a real leader does.

Putin is a doer, while Obama is a talker. Never judge a man on what he says, but on what he does.

Wish we had a president w/ balls. Apparently Putin came out and said, “It is up to God to forgive the terrorists. It is up to me to send them to him.” And we are stuck w/ Obama folks.

Applause to Mr. Putin for leading the fight against ISIS, unlike another guy who draws lines in the sand and allows them to be crossed; and, who seems to have an agenda supportive of ISIS.

May Putin do to the terrorists what the US and every other country doesn’t have the guts to do.

I LOVE PUTIN, I LOVE RUSSIA !! THEY will NOT MESS AROUND and do all the LIBTARDOCRATIC hand-wringing that goes on here in the USA when it is time for WAR. THEY will SHOOT FIRST and ASK QUESTIONS LATER as it should be , and not worry what the LIB IDIOTS in the MEDIA THINK !!! BRAVO for the RUSSIANS!!

  1. TROUBLE IS THE CARTOON SHOWS OBAMA SLEEPING , HE HASNT BEEN SLEEPING HE IS IN FULL THROTTLE OBEYING HIS HANDLERS HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE IS DOING AND HE IS BEING PAID WELL TO DO THEM.

  2. PUTIN HAS TO PICK UP THE PIECES OF DECADES USA’S DEBACLES AND ILLEGAL WARS AND FOREIGN POLICIES OR LACK THERE OF . IM SURE PUTIN DOESNT WANT TO BE IN THIS POSITION BUT US AND WESTERN POLICIES HAVE LEFT HIM NO CHOICE .

  3. The Soviet Union was were evil because it was Communist. The Russian Federation’s most powerful cultural force is the Orthodox Church and its people (and leaders) are increasingly social and fiscal conservatives in the mold of Ronald Reagan. Flat tax, budget surplus, secure borders, ban on “gay” propaganda to kids, respectful of marriage and family, protective of Christians in the Middle East. The Communists are now in the White House, literally.

    Sorry, my comment was in reply to rehmart1 (I was blinded my technical problems).

    Most interesting article (and great cartoon!) which I will share.

  6. Netanyahu flew to see Putin, not the other way round. Putin agreeing to meet him is consistent with a desire to be seen as open to dialogue and cooperation. So far he hasn’t put a foot wrong, and makes Western leaders look crap. Which is why even Americans are rethinking their attitude to him.

    I respect your suspicions but you really are not providing any evidence.

    YES – Putin is the new “Sheriff in Syria” to save Israel from the growing Iranian influence in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Gaza.

    On September 21, Putin welcomed Netanyahu, his defense chief of staff and head of Jewish military intelligence. Netanyahu conveyed his concern over Russian military personnel fighting along Syrian forces and supply of Russian air-to-air anti-aircraft system. He assured Putin that Israeli pilots would make sure they don’t hit Russian targets but warned Putin of collateral damage. Netanyahu told reporters after the meeting that Putin had promised to share intelligence with Israel over conflict in Syria.

    Considering that Vladimir Putin allegedly have Jewish family roots and has very close relation with former Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, a radical Jew – I believe Putin has no interest in saving Bashar al-Assad or any Muslim nation-state from Israeli vultures for that matter. His only interest is to re-establish Soviet-era domination of the region.
