Patrick J. Buchanan quotes Putin on state sovereignty (without irony!):
—Putin concept of “state sovereignty” is this: “We are all different, and we should respect that. No one has to conform to a single development model that someone has once and for all recognized as the right one.”—
From Ukraine, where I live, (and probably also from Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Georgia, Moldova, Mongolia, China), Patrick Buchanan seems like he’s joined the lunatic fringe.
