  • Putain did it.

    A bit convenient for Putin. Real, live, Islamic fall guys kill someone who opposes him. For no apparent reason.


    • I’m glad it all worked out for the best.

        Karma, do you think?

    • David Murrell

      I agree with you. I despise radical Islamic terrorists as much as anyone on this board, but the arrests were too convenient to believe. No one can seriously believe Putin anymore, except perhaps for Obama and John Kerry.

    Yes it was. It is the ongoing jihad against Putin for his ongoing atrocities in the Caucasus.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Seems to me the Chechens are an ongoing atrocity. Insofar as the Chechens are baths!t crazy and demonstrably so, I actually wonder at Putin’s restraint.
