Vladimir Putin – Man Who Would Be King
Posted 1/15/2022, by Michael Cavalier – Editor
Is Vladimir Putin hoping for another war to help revive his country’s sagging economy? Some experts say that Russia’s president is looking for any opportunity to boost patriotism and distract from the country’s economic troubles. With a population that is aging and shrinking, Putin may feel like he needs to do something dramatic to keep his grip on power. And war seems like the perfect solution, at least in the short term. But could this strategy actually backfire?
There are few things more dangerous than the nostalgia of old men. When they look back on their younger days, they often idealize them, forgetting the pain and hardships they endured. This can lead to great mistakes being made in the present, as these older men try to recapture what they once had.
We see this all too often in politics, where aging leaders try to cling to power long after their time has passed. As a young person looking toward the future, it’s important not to let yourself be swayed by the empty promises of yesterday’s heroes. There is always something new waiting for you around the corner. So don’t be afraid to seize it – and leave the old men behind (Also sounds like Joe Biden).
Vladimir Putin has been Russia’s leader spanning two decades. He first became president in 2000, and then regained the position in 2012 after serving as prime minister. During his time in office, Putin has been both praised and criticized for his actions. Some say he is a king or even a czar, while others claim that he is nothing more than a ruthless dictator. So what is Putin’s true role in Russia? Is he really just a powerful figurehead, or does he have more control over the country than anyone realizes?
The US intelligence community believes that Russia is planning to launch a false-flag operation in order to justify military action against Ukraine. This follows reports of increased Russian troop movements near the Ukrainian border. If this is true, it would be a clear escalation of the conflict in Ukraine and could have potentially catastrophic consequences.
It is being reported that the Biden administration has information that Russia might soon launch a ground invasion of Ukraine. This comes as no surprise, given Russia’s annexation of Crimea and continued support for separatists in eastern Ukraine. The United States must take steps to deter Russia from further aggression, including deploying troops to NATO member states in Central and Eastern Europe.
The US has information that indicates Russia has prepositioned a group of operatives to conduct a false-flag operation in eastern Ukraine, a US official told CNN on Friday, in an attempt to create a pretext for an invasion. The official said the US has evidence that the operatives are trained in urban warfare and in using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against Russia’s own proxy forces.
Pentagon press secretary John Kirbysaid the Defense Department has credible information indicating Russia has “prepositioned a group of operatives” to execute “an operation designed to look like an attack on them or Russian-speaking people in Ukraine” in order to create a reason for a potential invasion.

When it comes to Vladimir Putin, it’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when will he invade Ukraine. Since he first took office in 2000, Vladimir Putin has been a controversial figure on the world stage. Though he has often been characterized as a strong leader, his tactics have come under fire from both domestic and international observers. With the nerve agent attacks, Putin was behind, many are asking whether it’s time to take a harder line against Putin and Russia. But is that really feasible? And would it even make a difference?
