Well l hope Mr Putin you will arrest the 600 on their return to Russia before they turn their military training and guns against you, all must be Islamic terrorists.

Vladimir Putin is the best & valiant in his efforts for peace to return to Syria. Al Assad too has said the would negotiate peace with the FSA, but not with terrorists, who have no right to be in Syria committing unspeakable atrocities. Surely NATO could already have assisted Assad to get this evil out & acted as an arbitrator? But no, International Laws are now meaningless. EU will forever rue the day they agreed not to extend the arms embargo on Syria. The killing of thousands.. children, todlers & babies, women & old timers. There is no way the Almighty God will condone this evil slaughter of the innocents!

Putin is a man of honour and knows what is going on, he is a Christian with a good heart.
