Why, you might ask?

  • He refused to succumb to his political intelligentsia who were pressuring him to submit to a US-driven ‘solution’ in Syria

  • He uses US politician slipups to architect peace in the Middle East on his terms

  • When that seems dicy, he writes directly to his opponents populace in their own media

  • He refuses to back down to liberal anglosphere pressure to rescind ‘archaic’ LGBT laws in his own country

  • He’s not a figurehead. He has the support of his people and can pretty much do whatever he wants.

  • He dominates Obama at the G20

I, for one, welcome our new Soviet overlords.
