A former ambassador to Russia: 'There are signs of a coup' (re: Putin's disappearance from public)

Russian President Vladimir Putin was last seen in public on March 5, and in Russia there are increased fears he is the victim of an attempted coup by security organizations and the Russian army.

Israel’s former ambassador to Russia, Zvi Magen, told Haaretz he believes “there are many signs of a coup. The movement of the army around the Kremlin indicates that there is a change in government, or that an attempt at a change in government is being carried out.”

Magen believes those responsible for the potential coup are “branches or factions in the army who are working together or against one another, or wealthy businessmen, many of whom worked in these organizations. They could only be people who are free to walk around the corridors of the Kremlin.”

He says possible reasons include the ongoing sanctions imposed by the West on those close to the Kremlin, sanctions “that harm them personally. I don’t believe there’s a controversy there surrounding policy. They’re protecting their own interests.”

Didn't Bush say Putin was his soulmate, or something like that?

Maybe someone besides Putin is cleaning house.

appearances, including signings of treaties, during that time?

4. FOX would speculate that he was visiting Kenya.



And besides, that signing of treaties thingy...we been learned that that doesn't matter cuz the day he leaves office those permanent senators are just going to wipe their butts with that treaty.

6. Ha'aretz is a great newspaper.

Too bad the United States' own have the guts to ask what people in a democracy should be asking:

WTF is Pooty Poot? Personally, I hope he's behind bars for a real crime rather than under ground for standing up to PNAC.

Thank you for the heads-up, dixiegrrrrl!
