Putin's Russian is a Virus that must be contained

There was a very good interview with Garry Kasparov is very insightful into the reality of Vladimir Putin's Russia.

"Putin's Russia is a virus. You don't engage the virus, you have to contain it," he told me.
Kasparov is one of four debaters Friday night in Toronto questioning the West's response to Russia: 'engage or isolate?'

So basically, to engage militarily would place middle class Russia into Vladimir Putin's hands as the saviour of the people. Rather, it makes more sense to cleave them from his influence.

To underline to the Russian middle class they will get screwed in the end by Putin's policies is the way to remove him. Ironically, to compare Putin to Bush might be a good start
