    I'm still waiting for people to learn what a metaphor is.

    Even if it was a metaphor for a verbal tongue lashing, the gutless wonder still does not ahve the balls to actually confront him.

    All that tough talk was for the cameras here, when push comes to shove he was as meek as a kitten

    I'm waiting for all government to be booted out, men were meant to be free but they desire to rule and be ruled.

    I am reminded of the classic scene: "I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!"

    So when he said he was going to shirtfront him, that was a metaphor for acting tough for his domesticate crowd and then being a pussy when it came time to actually meet him?

    Putin is playing power games to distract from the fact that Russia's economy is failing, there is massive capital outflows from Russia, everyone with money is getting it out of the country as fast as they can, the Rouble is losing value by the day. Basically Putin is doing this as a distraction from the budget. Sound familiar?

    He confronted Putin and demanded compensation for the victim's families. He told Putin that he had intelligence suggestion that the missile was delivered from Russia to the rebels. Do you guys actually read anything other than the guardian?

    he has no proof besides what the US tell him to say, the USA shot down a plane and there was no question about where that missile came from. The Germans say it was a Ukrainian missile, there is still an ongoing investigations all we hear is the biast medias here spin on it.

    also BTW the guy that shot down that plane from the USA got promoted.

    I would have thought that most people would have understood that. Apparently not.
