Vladimir Putin or How I Stopped Worrying and Loved the Bomb?

Remember Slim Pickens’ famous lines: “Well boys this is it. Nuclear combat toe to toe with the Ruskies.” Maybe Dr. Strangelove should be renamed Vladimir Putin or How I Stopped Worrying and Loved the Bomb. Kubrick couldn’t have dreamed up this particular medicine man. The emotionless exterior suggests Hannah Arendt’s famous locution about Eichmann, “the banality of evil.” Previously Putin was regarded as the consummate realpolitician, but are appearances deceiving.? Has he actually gone off the deep end? Is he capable of pushing the button? “We’ll meet again don’t know where don’t know when” were the lyrics that accompanied the mushroom cloud in the l963 satire. One thing is true. The unbelievable is coming closer to reality. Who would have thought that a thug, with the hairdo of a used car salesman, worshipped by the founder of My Pillow, would destroy democracy?
