“In this regard, security personnel cannot eliminate consideration of martial applications – defense, warfare, intensity, etc. – for the sole reason that “the other guys” will not refrain from inflicting the most horrific damage possible upon other human beings. This does not mean that security personnel should adopt the same measures. No sane individual blows him or herself up to promote a cause anymore than he or she beheads another to support a particular occupation. At least not within the context of benefiting society and all individuals making up such society. Security personnel, however, can – and should – employ lethal force if it remains the only means available for stopping a homicide bomber from detonating an improvised explosive device (IED) or a narco-trafficker from beheading an individual.”

Президент Путин, почему российские мужчины любят видеть себя в нагом? Now that I got that off my chest (no pun intended), there remains more important things in life than whether Russian tyrants like to disrobe in front of cameras. It does not make any difference whether Vladimir Putin likes to fish and ride horses while showing the world that one cannot get a decent tan in Russia or that the ousted president of Ukraine – what’s his name? – likes having portraits made of himself sitting in the buff. Frankly, I do not believe that anyone gives a crap whether I bear a few extra pounds or that Vladimir Putin likes to show off his KGB-financed abs. In the eyes of God, appearances do not matter; actions do (Matthew 6:2-6 New American Bible). In this regard, Vladimir Putin has much recompense ahead and I, truthfully, feel sad for this, dare I say, archetypical Russian narcissist.
My paternal ancestors came from Russia-occupied Poland and Poles since developed their nation into a model for oppressed peoples everywhere. An antagonistic Moscow could not defeat the Poles’ sense of family, faith, and freedom. Russia, conversely, has evolved into poster child for corruption. Russia’s men abandon their wives and children without care. Russian men find more solace in a bottle of vodka than in Christian ethics. And more importantly, Russia’s political and economic systems are tyrannical in nature. Most Russians today harbor a quality of life far beneath even the poorest of Americans. Perhaps this explains why President-apparently-for-life Vladimir Putin likes going shirtless. Russian men are inherently conditioned for having the shirts literally torn off their backs. Could this be why Russia is called the Bare, er, Bear?
