Judah: "Putin created a monster"

Author Ben Judah says Vladimir Putin has presented a "Nazi Ukraine" to the Russian people and is now trapped by his own propaganda.

    Insightful comments by Ben Judah but there is another aspect to the conflict that needs to be discussed. It is the position the West (EU/US) has taken.There is a lot of blustery talk from the West but no real will to take meaningful to an invasion of a sovereign state by Russia. There is no real leadership being taken by the most powerful country and the most powerful region in the world in the face of a major transgression by Putin and Russia. Unfortunately, when all is said and done Ukraine is more important to Russia than it is to the West and doing the right thing takes a back seat to economics and avoiding conflict. It will come back to haunt us.

    How do you people work in The CNN? The situation is that: either you do NOT know any language at all to deliberately contraverse & distort the meaning of reports Aboard online, or you are doing this specifically for YOUR strategic debilitation to win the common opinion over the World or what? It really smells like propaganda against the sovereign Countries! Just do your j-rnalistic job properly without any disto-traslated reports, because other nations do know & understand on THEIR TV channels what THEIR reports REALLY mean!

    You keep reporting the Pres. is not letting us know what he plans to do about ISIS. Why don't we just hand them a letter telling them what we are going to do in the future. We don't really know what we are going to do; because if we do, them you can be sure ISIS does too. Lay off the Pres. for a while. Let the plans move forward without us and everyone in the world know what we are going to do.
