Putin`s Russia Medicare...

Mr. Putin in his article in NY Times wrote about Syria:

"I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation".

So Mr.Putin, the ordinary Third World dictator is teaching America about "exceptianalism". Wow! I also read sen. McCain reply (in Russian) to in (which is btw just a tabloid now). Senator said many good words to the Russian people but ... But I would like to propose a rather different response to Mr.Putin lectures in NY Times.

Putin`s  regime in fact  is a sort of  the militarist cleptocracy not very far from Syria, Algeria and other Middle East shitholes. The medicine as well as infrastructure and other social needs arent the government priority at all. The results of such a politics (Putin is ruling Russia since 2000, in fact - even since 1999) are deplorables for the ordinary citizens.
