What would it take? (UPDATED)

We all know the mantra by now: "Putin is in cahoots with the West!  Putin is a puppet of the world oligarchy!  Putin sold out Novorussia!  Putin only pretends to oppose the Empire!".  We heard it all year long.

Then came Putin's Valdai speech.  It was not anything new, he had said very similar things in 2007: the world hegemony of the USA was unacceptable and it would be stopped.

But the Putin-bashes never noticed. They are very good at not noticing.

Now comes the G20 down south.

On greeting Putin, Harper actually tells him "I guess I'll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you, you need to get out of Ukraine."‎ According to an Australian spokesmen "Mr. Putin did not respond positively." (ex-KGB officers are not impressed by, or have respect for, petty street thugs and their swagger).

Merkel, Cameron and Obama threatened even more sanctions in indulged in their usual combo of lies and threats.  Obama bested them all with pearl: "We're opposing Russia's aggression against Ukraine, which is a threat to the world, as we saw in the appalling shoot-down of MH17” (nevermind that all the evidence shows that it was a Ukrainian SU-25 attack which, in turn, means that it was yet another botched US false flag operation).

As for Putin, having spoken with his BRICS colleagues - who gave him their full support - he is apparently going to leave the G20 summit early and return to Moscow.   Actions speak louder than words.

So my question to the Putin-bashers is this?  What would it take to convince you that Putin is truly the leader of the world-wide resistance to the Empire and, therefore, the leader of the (truly) Free World?
