    That is why America's case cannot apply anywhere else. I tell you what, it was really a choice between forcing people to vote for Kremlin or for the White House. Putin decided it should be for Kremlin. I think he is right.

    You are saying Russia's economy is based on oil and gas. Yes. So what? Saudi Arabia does the same thing.

    America plans to get Iraq's economy going with oil. If you have it why not use it right?
    Big I am not mad that they have the resources to sell. Its a global economy and they have what everyone wants, its almost capitalistic of them to use those resources in thise manner. My maine point was that Putin has not put together any earth shattering economic proposals that would have grown the economy over there.

    Of course not. The quality of one's Presidenship is often a function of circumstances.

    But you can see a double standard where Saudi Arabia never gets criticized by USA for much worse violations than Russia.

    Because Russia takes over privately owned companies, and turns them into state run enterprises?
