Amazing poll at The Independent

Okay, I admit it, when I first saw this one I thought that this might be an April's Fool.  Not because I disagree with the results, oh no, but because I am amazed that so many people in the UK (of all places!!!) would feel likewise.  But this is for real.  See for yourself:

The Independent posted a piece about Nigel Farage saying that Putin's was the world leader he most admired.  Nice, but coming from Farage, not really surprising.  But then the Independent asked its readers who their favorite world leader was.  And here are the results as of April 5th, 16:33 (EST): (and check the original article here):

Now, I understand that this is not a "scientific poll", and that maybe some other "Putin groupie" besides me is out there clicking "Putin, Putin, Putin, Putin", but somehow I doubt it.  But even if there is such a Putin fanboy, this begs the question why there is no Cameron or Obama fanboy out there doing the same for his favorite leader.  Either Putin does inspire a lot of people, or he inspires a few people a lot - something which the other leaders clearly don't.

The other thing which really has to be noted over and over again is that this is a poll taken by a British newspaper smack in the middle of the Anglosphere - this is not Zimbabwe or Guyana.  And for me this poll, just as the other one I posted, shows that when we say that "the Anglosphere" does this or that we have to stress over and over again that we are talking about the power structure, the 1% running the Empire, and not the Anglo people who both in the USA and in the UK seem to have a very different view of these matters than their rulers.

Finally, this also corroborates something which I have been saying here before: Putin is, objectively, the world leader of the Axis of Resistance to Empire.  Of course, he is not alone, at the very least other leaders such as (in no particular order) Xi Jinping, Ali Khamenei, Hassan Nasrallah, Evo Morales, Nicolas Maduro, Daniel Ortega, Bashar Assad, Rafael Correa, Alexander Lukashenko, Serzh Sargsyan, Raul Castro and Nursultan Nazarbayev deserve to be mentioned alongside Putin.  Each one of them is trying, as be he knows, to resist, but only Russia can oppose full-spectrum resistance to the Empire's full-spectrum aggression and nobody can dispute the fact that Russia can do that today only because of what should be called the "Putin miracle" (remember that just 2 decades ago Russia was in the same situation as the Ukraine today:run by US-controlled oligarchs and crooks).

I am becoming convinced that most of the world population, exhausted and disgusted from being serfs of the AngoZionist Empire, also understand that and that if it was possible to organize an objective and fair poll worldwide, Putin would come out as the most popular leaders world wide, by a wide margin.

I think that Putin deserves that and I hope that this awareness will give him strength to continue to resist not only for Russia and its sovereignty, but for all of us who, as Arundhati Roy put it, are "subjects of the Empire".
