The only leader in history I can recall whose performance exceeded this is Mao Zedong, another Western villain and local hero.

P.S. Thanks for the correction to Russia’s GDP!


As you know, I am no fan of Putin.

But, it’s important to know more than your own viewpoint, if you want to judge wisely, ad God wises us to.

We are commanded to be perfect, as our Father is perfect: and that means right judgement, with all the information, without bias or prejudice.

And while I am no fan of Putin, it is the repulsive Western political establishment which is the most committed enemy of Christ.
