Putin as an ex-top level Russian government counter-espionage agent.
He has been developing himself and carving his path gradually, over many years to be where he is today.
He is unusually calculated and an expert in strategizing. Three-dimensional chess is his favorite game.
Putin has outdone Russia and it's constitution to his satisfaction. Yes, indeed Putin can kill who he so chooses in broad daylight anywhere in the world (5th Ave. NY, or not).
So, of course, it is unbecoming and particularly dangerous that, another with an idiotic mindset, abject ignorance, and top degree level of buffoonery to try to mimic.
