Vladimir Putin was never particularly known for his rationality. Flamboyance characterized him more than anything. Till recently he kept himself busy with stunts of a wide variety. Here are some pictures of his stuntman days:

Putin overpowering a Judo Black Belt
Putin fishing in Siberia
Putin hunting
Putin riding horse

For a head of a state, those are pretty unusual activities!

While Putin did all that Obama had only his superb physical fitness and verbal agility to boast off. Trump used his mouth as a cannon and managed to do some significant damage to the US democratic institutions.

Today the same macho man suffers from

  1. colon cancer,
  2. Parkinson’s
  3. schizoid attacks.

The first ailment has a five-year survival rate. The second one kills slowly and funnily. Take a look at this video to understand how disgraceful Parkinson’s looks on a superhero like Putin:

It looks like has gone back to his teenage days. It may also be noted that it is his right hand that shakes in a way that is seen only during a jerk-off session.

It is not clear how the video found its way to YouTube, despite strict censorship of any news about Putin. Probably his elaborate propaganda ensemble will soon project it as yet another sign of his virility and masculinity. It is not an easy task for a 70-year-old man to jerk off at the speed of light like a 15-year-old boy!

The third ailment needs some attention. Schizoid behavior is a euphemism for mild schizophrenia. Paranoia goes hand-in-hand with schizophrenia. Also, the former spy of KGB must have been trained, like any other espionage agent, to be naturally suspicious.

NATO was born before Vladimir Putin. It has expanded in phases since its inception. The following map from Statista shows it nicely:

NATO expansion

Putin needs to understand that NATO’s expansion is a diplomatic exercise, not a military expansion through conquests. Russia needs to learn the subtle craft of diplomacy from the Western nations. Its leaders need to come out of battle tanks and understand diplomacy.
