The liquidation of Putin's critics

"Suppose that during Bill Clinton's two terms as president Ken Starr, Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter, Newt Gingrich and five other prominent Clinton critics had all been shot and killed, in gangland-style contract hits. "

This article describes the latest in a bloody trail of killings apparently initiated by the Kremlin since Vladmir Putin came to power. Not only have prominent critics been murdered inside Russia, the KGB extended its long arm into the heart of London to poison Alexander Litvinenko with a radioactive substance that can only have been made in a government controlled reactor.

While it is obvious to anyone who is aware of what's going on in the world that Russia has returned to its dictatorial roots, it's good to be reminded that Putin is just as ruthless as his Soviet era counterparts. The killings continue.
