Back to main story. After occupying the prime minister's seat for only five months, Putin has transformed his image from that of a bureaucrat working largely behind the scenes to that of Russia's most popular politician.

They promote war, as they always have.
Most people bemoan the thought of such a war to end all wars, but refuse to analyze the factors leading to it. It happens step-by-step, and many steps have already been taken with more coming soon. Nothing has changed since the Church Committee hearings in the s.
