Isn't Ninja just the Japanese word for spy/assassin? Does that make Putin a former Ninja?

@mihneacuzino2 Isn't Ninja just the Japanese word for spy/assassin? Does that make Putin a former Ninja?

Ninja literally just means person who endures, or person who waits (nin = wait or endures, ja = person).

@Thatoneduderyan So, cops on a stakeout are ninjas?

Any covert operative for any reason could be described as a ninja in the literal sense. I can say this confidently because the kanji words are Chinese, and I can read Chinese, and Japanese people are very literal when it comes to Chinese words, arguably even moreso than Chinese people themselves.

But I'm not a language expert. "Ninja" in English, I believe, is translated as a warrior who uses ninjutsu. "Ninjutsu" also has kanji words with it, which would be translated as "technique of the enduring," which in a literal sense would include people on a stakeout.

But is it "ninjutsu" in the colloquial sense, as a Japanese person would understand it? No.

They were guerallia fighters in the mountains. The black pyjamas are a Hollywood thing (at best, they imitate the people who moved screens in stage plays, and the outfit was meant to suggest they weren't in the play). It's more appropriate to say Hollywood ninjas would have been the worst at their job.

The real ninjas apparently hide quite well, since everyone is staring at the guy in black who is chucking throwing stars and smoke bombs.
