Article Source: Putin Has Some Harsh Words For Muslim Sympathizer Obama.
While many Americans criticize U.S. President Barack Obama for his blatant ignorance of Islamic terror, the same praise Russian President Vladimir Putin for his politically incorrect bluntness towards America’s undeniable blindness of Islam.
Putin has many condemnable qualities, but dealing with terrorists at the source is not one of them. Russia has been cracking down on Islamists, hoping to eliminate the threat of jihadists and their recruiting foreigners. American, however, doesn’t seem to be doing enough in Putin’s eyes. In fact, he sees just the opposite.
Putin delivered a fierce speech for the Valdai Club in Sochi, slamming the U.S. for its involvement in the spread of ISIS and lack of responsibility and action. He also blamed the U.S. for sensationalizing Russia’s involvement in Ukraine as a distraction from our own president’s failures.
Vladimir Putin lashed out at the United States and the West for destabilizing the world order of checks and balances for its own gains. He also accused the West of inflaming the situation in Ukraine and said Russia is not interested in building an empire.
“The system of international relations needed some changes, but the USA, who believe they were the winners of the Cold War, have not seen the need for this.” He added that the US has been trying to create the world “for their own gains.” The Russian President added that because of this, regional and global security had been weakened.
Putin also touched on the issue of the growth of Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, and also accused the West of, “turning a blind eye,” to the encroachment of international terrorism into Russia and Central Asia. Putin believes the US has played a considerable role in sponsoring the growth of Islamic extremism, using the example of Washington’s funding of the Mujahidin in the Afghan-Soviet war in the 1980’s, which eventually gave birth to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
“It never ceases to amaze me how our partners have been guilty of making the same mistakes time and again. They have in the past sponsored Islamic extremists who were battling against the Soviet Union, which took place in Afghanistan. It was because of this the Taliban and Al-Qaeda was created,” the president added.
Putin concluded that ISIS was merely the latest creation of radical Islam and chastised many countries that have been aiding and funding Islamic State militants by buying seized oil that the terrorist organization had taken over. Putin also called out Obama for his action against Russia, saying, “The USA, which has implemented sanctions against Russia, is sawing at the branches, upon which they are sitting.”
