As far as Putin goes, everybody TALKS the Ent Position, but nobody really WALKS it.
One group here says Putin is our guy, another says he isn’t. The Ent Position is that nobody is REALLY on OUR side. Putin makes all the right people chew the rug. That makes people think he’s our guy.
Then, because all the important people are chewing the rug at him, Putin joins the outcry against Iran.
In this case, talk IS cheap. Putin will kiss Jewish backsides as a practical matter, like any other player in the PRESENT power.
But I doubt seriously he will DO anything against iran or do anything for Jews that he doesn’t get paid for.
All this is politics as usual. The only thing that surprises me is how SERIOUSLY people take a debate about whether Putin is Christ or anti-Christ.
