It appears the Reuters/Michael Moore ‘freedom fighters’ crowd pissed off Mr. Putin:
Mr Putin was answering questions from an international group of Russian specialists and journalists, including The Independent, at his residence at Novo Ogarevo, outside Moscow. In a wide-ranging conversation, which lasted for three and a half hours and ended only after midnight, Mr Putin said that Russia was quite prepared to show flexibility towards the rebellious region of Chechnya in future, but “not with those who do not stop at shooting children”.
His fists clenched, he said: “No one has the right to advise us to talk to people like that. I don’t advise you to meet Bin Laden, invite him to Brussels and Nato or the White House, hold talks with him, and let him dictate what he wants so that he will then leave you alone. But you tell us that we should talk to everyone, including child-killers.”
But it doesn’t seem like the Bush admin does.
Well, you have never gotten it, Ollie. Ever. (yes, that too, but you know what I mean ;) )
You bozos in the leftie media still refer to the chechen TERRORISTS as armed captors and activists. Wha the heck is an armed captor anyway?
Putin, I want you kill those S.O.B.s. Every last one of them. Not Chechens in general, just the terrorists. And if the Chechans want to have any hope for a future, they would help you do it.
Ollie will tout any kind of baloney story as long as he thinks it scores points against the hated Rethuglicans … or there’s a big sack of hamburgers in it for him.
You better believe Mr. Putin gets it. My wife is Ukrainian but grew up speaking Russian so we have 4 Russian TV stations via satellite. We saw Putin
