I wanted to stay away from this Boris Nemtsov assassination, but since the golden boy of rape and pillage of Russia in 1990s got killed (and I am sorry--I hate people dying for any reasons), I have to make some small points. The only thing I have to say here is--Qui Bono. It is MH-17 all over again--a hysteria in the Beltway, better chances for all kinds of bizarre legislatures passing, including arming Ukraine. But here we have to also go to the OODA Loop and ask ourselves--how are those sanctions working out against Russia? I imply nothing (so far), until the investigation comes up with more or less coherent answers, but I will reiterate one point: the only person who stands between Moscow's "liberal elite" being pitch-forked or hung on the lamp posts all over Russia and this "elite's" Western grants' consumption IS Putin. Plus, United States was boringly predictable in applying its template of "democratic" coups. Do I say that it is West behind this provocation? NO! In fact, this could have been anyone's (wink, wink) "operation" but the truth is, for Russia to kill this boy Nemtsov, while having a moment of national unity not seen since Great Patriotic War and Putin enjoying an overwhelming support of population, come on--be real. The oldest trick in the "regime change" and false flag book. "Heavenly Hundred" anyone?
I have a suspicion that MVD (FSB?) guys following this Navalny guy are there for his protection. As for the United States, which has a glorious tradition of assassinating its own Presidents (forget some second rate hack like Nemtsov), it is really funny to raise a voice on the issue of some........(fill in blanks yourself) being killed for the "greater good" which comes down to Qui Bono, and Russia is, certainly, not in this list.
