Some intersting points were made by Putin. In particular, I thought this was worth noting:
"International terrorists have set as their goal inflicting the maximum damage to Bush, to prevent his election to a second term," President Putin said at a central Asian summit in Tajikistan.
"If they succeed in doing that, they will celebrate a victory over America and over the entire anti-terror coalition. In that case, this would give an additional impulse to international terrorists and to their activities, and could lead to the spread of terrorism to other parts of the world."
