Putin Going Down?

Timothy Birdnow

Wishful thinking, methinks.

Vladimir Putin’s regime faces COLLAPSE in 2023 as his inner circle turn on him over ‘meat grinder’ war in Ukraine

Speaking to The Sun Online, US-based Russia expert Olga Lautman from the Center for European Policy Analysis said: "I would not be surprised if his regime collapses in 2023."

She said that the overthrowal of the Putin regime is most likely to come from within, rather than from an organic movement of ordinary people.

And she said that the many conspiracies about Vlad's ill health could have been released by his potential successors in a bid to undermine his regime.

"Rumours about Putin's health are being put out by security services," she said.

"They've been put out since 2008, always around the time of key events.

"They may be laying the groundwork for Putin's removal, they could be a form of distraction for the West, or they could be to discourage uprisings.

"Why bother overthrowing Putin if he is about to die?"

But Olga warns that waiting for Putin to die is not a solution.

Regime change was clearly the goal of U.S. involvement in this, and probably why we took no steps to find a diplomatic solution.

But I rather doubt Putin is going down over this. His economy is still doing pretty well, with oil revenues still coming in. Yes, they have lost a lot of people (although I think it is far less than these sources claim) but Russians are not overly sensitive to such sacrifice.

I think this is a way to push war plans in the West forward. Raise hopes Putin will be gone then when he doesn't leave we'll be "forced" to step in.

And if Putin is in this sort of peril?  He is no Saddam Hussein. He'll do whatever he must to stay in power. That means using unconventional methods.

Last night I dreamed there was a nuclear strike against the U.S.  I think my subconscious was telling me something.

Putin will use nukes if he must. Probably use tactical nukes and dare us to respond. I doubt we would.

This is making the World safe for international corporations and little more, I fear.

At any rate, I think this is very much a case of attempted self-fulfilling prophecy.
