Powell on Putin

Colin Powell expresses concern about Putin’s power grab:

“In effect this is pulling back (on) some of the democratic reforms, as seen by the international community, that have occurred in the past. We understand the need to fight against terrorism … but in an attempt to go after terrorists I think one has to strike a proper balance to make sure that you don’t move in a direction that takes you away from the democratic reforms or the democratic process.”

Compare this reasoned and diplomatic response with the reckless slop offered by the Veep in the post below this one.

Concentration is important!
