    Why is Putin regarded as a bad guy?

    Why does the average Joe think Putin is demon spawn?

    I must say the more i learn about him, the more respect i have for the man. Am I wrong? Or does everyone just go with the status quo?

    A quick search brought up this:
    quora.com/Why…guy

    This is not a difficult question to answer. Putin has been demonized in the American corporate media because:

    1. He rejected the advice of the World Bank and IMF. He was successful with state-centered economic growth that took a third world country and restored it to great power status in 5 years.

    2. American oil corporations want access to Russia’s resources. Putin has them tightly under semi-private, semi-national control.

    3. He’s building a new trading bloc with Kazakhstan and China. It also includes Iran, Armenia, Belarus and today, Turkey. He’s dumping the dollar.

    4. He doesn’t believe in liberalism (in all senses of that term).

    5. He is the victim of the neurotic projection of failed western leaders. He’s everything they’re not: popular, successful, free. He’s not beholden to corporate interests, he’s more powerful than they are.

    6. He speaks the truth about global affairs from 9–11 to GMOs.

    7. He refuses to support Israel or Zionism.

    Don’t underestimate #5. My book on Putin goes into some detail there. When one compares Putin to Bush or Obama, there is a stark difference. Putin is immensely popular in Russia and even parts of Ukraine. Obama would kill for Putin’s ratings. Hillary already has. The western system is an oligarchy, serving only the wealthy. Belarus and Russia since 2000 have a far more rational economy where the state is stronger than corporate interests. When Putin can march into a factory and order scumbag billionaire Oleg Depraska to sign a contract that labor favored, you know what politics is about. Western leaders wish they could do that.

    He seems an alright chap.

    probably because the media are told to put this view out there or want people to think this way about him? :l

    It's interesting to read an "alternative" viewpoint.

    Why put a question mark in the title of your post, when you are not asking a question.

    I used to like gobarchev. Thought he did wonders to bring the iron curtain down.

    I know very little about putin. I am currently neutral on him.

    Trump is making the world a much nicer place.
    Once again the biased media portray Putin as a "future Stalin"

    Since Cameron became PM, i suddenly realised how much the news media spoon-feeds us and manipulates and exagerates truths to gain ratings. Cameron pumped the news with Tory propaganda, filled with Anti Labour/Lib-Dem/UKIP and Pro-Tory garbage. It worked alarmingly well, anyone on income support or disability living allowance is now branded lazy, bone idle and a drain on society. They also tricked us into accepting drastic cuts to vital services, so that the wealthy would pay less tax.

    The biased media are at it again with Trump. Picking every negative they can about him and brushing past any positive actions, or spinning them into a negative sounding one.
    Now that ive come to my senses, i am doubting everything i have been told about Putin from the media, and having an open opinion about the guy.
    Trumps presidency may yet be the dawn of a new era with US-Russia relations, we will have to wait and see.

    Putin - Closet homosexual with a narcissistic disorder in charge of 3,000,000 military personnel & 7000 nuclear warheads?

    Having traveled to Moscow for a Marathon i was very impressed with the clean well ordered city, infact of all the places in the world i have traveled i felt the most safe on the streets and underground of Moscow, the police are well respected and visible,(So President Putin and his city Mayors are doing something right) i found the people friendly and helpful if ever i asked for help, ironically in the late 70's 80's and 90's as a young soldier we where brainwashed into thinking it was a nation of baby eaters and we had to defend Europe against the aggressors! Putin is vilified for supporting rebels who have helped the Russian speaking enclave in the Ukraine but we as a nation went to the aid of the Falklands when Argentina invaded... of this i have no doubt Putin is a very, very intelligent man and polonium tea is served to those that displease him (allegedly!) but i sleep in my bed better knowing a firm and controlling hand is on the Russian nuclear arsenal but i admit to having cold sweats about North Korea and threats from the New Kid on the U.S. block! so yes Putin gets my vote... better the devil you know?.

    ''I would like to thank many people. My doctors, nurses and hospital staff who are doing all they can for me, the British police who are pursuing my case with vigour and professionalism and are watching over me and my family.

    I would like to thank the British government for taking me under their care. I am honoured to be a British citizen.

    I would like to thank the British public for their messages of support and for the interest they have shown in my plight.

    I thank my wife Marina, who has stood by me. My love for her and our son knows no bounds.

    But as I lie here I can distinctly hear the beating of wings of the angel of death.

    I may be able to give him the slip but I have to say my legs do not run as fast as I would like.

    I think, therefore, that this may be the time to say one or two things to the person responsible for my present condition.

    You may succeed in silencing me but that silence comes at a price. You have shown yourself to be as barbaric and ruthless as your most hostile critics have claimed.

    You have shown yourself to have no respect for life, liberty or any civilised value.

    You have shown yourself to be unworthy of your office, to be unworthy of the trust of civilised men and women.

    You may succeed in silencing one man but the howl of protest from around the world will reverberate, Mr Putin, in your ears for the rest of your life.

    May God forgive you for what you have done, not only to me but to beloved Russia and its people.

    I suppose a lot of it dates back to the cold war era, west v east.
    in the 60s70s 80s Russia were the enemy.

    ...........yeah let's just ignore his war crimes and gangsters

    The same reason everybody thinks Obama was the good guy. Media spin and manipulation if you haven't worked that out yet "GET OUT MORE"

    When did he tell the truth about 9-11?

    I must of missed that one.

    I'm going to say that it's because a number of his formerly healthy enemies are no longer with us. It's beyond co-incidental

    So who did Hilary Clinton kill?

    so many people just see the occasional news flash "Russia sending nuclear ships near British waters" etc and paint this picture of a demon leader. this is very enlightening indeed. thanks op. (where's the heat button lol)

    He's refined, sublime, he makes you feel fine though very much maligned and misunderstood.
    You can see that he's mischievous, mysterious and devious, as he circulates amongst the people in the place.
    But once you know he's fun and something of a genius, he gives a grin that goes around from face to face to face

    ​is it Ebeneezers funeral?

    I've nothing against Putin, Russia like many countries has its issues rooted in religion.

    As liberal as the UK is now from catholicism (and others), they still sit on school boards, open parliaments and have state/MP's blessings to discrimination - which is illegal for everyone else in the UK. You cant deny a 'gay' cake but you can the marriage, that is sheer lunacy and is far from equality they tell you it is.

    The sooner religions which were the State at a early part of human evolution die out the better.

    The sooner parents bring all their kids up with RESPECT as the religious belief the better a planet we will have.

    Putin ? he's not putting it near me X)
