The World understands that Americans are proud of the US, but that they have every right to feel betrayed! But outsiders wish the US understands she's not under attack. Only the US Administration is for being in breach of international law. Globally people feel deeply for America as it is obvious she is under siege from within. Pres Putin is supportive too & holding Russia's reigns, wants to help the US & the World towards peace & prosperity. He does not interfere with other countries, has no hidden agendas & says a peaceful way forward is always achievable & that the times we live in demand the World works together.

This web site has NO credibility at all by publishing so many LIES.

How is this website posting lies about Putin expressing his viewpoint on the nsa spying scandal? You can't "lie" about your opinion. Of course, unless you just totally disbelieve the whole NSA spying scandal, in that case if the leaks don't prove it to you, then I'm wasting my time trying to convince you.

You can't have 100% safety. Stop disregarding the constitution as you make us unsafe in the process

Well, It did break Constitutional law. Targeting with Gov't departments breaks the law too.
