If the comments here are any indication then Putin is a dick and the world would be better off without him on it.
The prevailing propaganda is that he should be taken out…..even assassinated.
I have received many comments on the idea of eliminating Putin…..the prevailing thinking is that he should be taken out in way or another.
But is that really a good idea and would it really make the world a better place?
An ex-CIA agent has thrown his voice into the debate……he does not think the loss of Putin would be as advantageous as some think….
If Russian President Vladimir Putin is assassinated, the country could descend into chaos, a former CIA analyst said.
This is all a result of the Russians’ disastrous outcome in Ukraine, where more than a year after invading the country is having trouble making progress.
Goble said experts and analysts are now even more “open” to the notion of Russia breaking up into a splintered state, causing the end of the Russian Federation.
The war has caused deterioration in Russia, from its world standing to its internal lack of cohesion.
Goble told The Sun: “What we’re likely to see is something different than the coming apart of the great empires.”
Also, Goble warns that the destruction of the Russian Federation could be a breakup similar to that of Yugoslavia but with nuclear weapons included.
When the Soviet Union was severed in 1991, the countries involved agreed to give up their nuclear weapons, a situation Goble believes would not be the case in this scenario.
“I would argue that this time around the period of decay is going to be messier, longer and vastly more varied than what we had in 1991,” he said.
Goble also warned that the volatility of the world could be more intense than is being talked about, according to The Sun.
Not a rosy picture of the time after the loss of Putin….of course this is one person’s opinion…..do you agree?

Yes, I do agree. I would prefer the disintegration of the federation over the termination of a single individual …of course I would like to see him retired to a small farm in Siberia where he could till the soil and write memoirs.
He would then be a figure head for the loonies…..I fear chuq
He is already a figure head for the loonies in our House of Representatives.
I have a pet theory that Navalny is being prepped to replace the ailing Putin…..which would largely mitigate both the internal and external threats to Russia, for various reasons.
Interesting theory……but is he not ailing? chuq
Whatever we think of Putin, we could end up with more enemies than Russia. There are plenty of anti-western hawks in the various republics that would emerge, and you can be sure that they would potentially increase instability in several regions.
Best wishes, Pete.
There are still some hardcore Stalinists in Russia….they could be a force to contend with in the future. chuq
