PostSubject: Great Article - Vladimir Putin, that Capitalist Pig   Wed Feb 25, 2009 3:16 pm

Here is an excerpt...it's long so I didn't cut and paste the whole thing. The link is at the bottom....

******************************************

In late January, when Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin spoke during the opening proceedings at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he passed on an opportunity to really take it to the United States for its role in the creation of the global economic crisis, pulling punches where he could have easily landed a few knockout blows. That's not to say, of course, that he did not touch upon what has happened here, and how the previous administration simply put on a happy face.

"In the last few months, virtually every speech on this subject started with criticism of the United States. But I will do nothing of the kind," Putin said. "I just want to remind you that, just a year ago, American delegates speaking from this rostrum emphasized the US economy's fundamental stability and its cloudless prospects. Today, investment banks, the pride of Wall Street, have virtually ceased to exist. In just 12 months, they have posted losses exceeding the profits they made in the last 25 years. This example alone reflects the real situation better than any criticism."
