    The two leaders seem to have a radically dissimilar style of governance. Putin is hands on while Obama is hands off. The festering war in Syria is a clear case in point. Obama distanced himself from the war resulting powerful rise of ISIS while Putin has intervened resulting in the powerful resurgence of Assad.

    And Obama was right to do so since Russia is not bombing ISIS as we were, and still are. If the countries in that area cannot take care of ISIS, and they outnumber them 3,000 to 1, then why should we? The first mistake was in invading Iraq, and Afghanistan, instead of arming the Kurds, and the Shi'ites, and letting them fight it out.
