Have you seen any of the most recent video coming out of Russia. Putin's "closest advisers" are at the far end of a 60 yard long table. How do you propose "they're going to kill Putin?" Saddam Hussein's "closest advisers" didn't manage to kill him before we pulled him out of a foxhole by the nap of his neck. If Iraq had, had Russia's nuclear capability none of us would be alive.They will kill Putin before there is a nuclear launch....book it.
