edit:I trimmed up this thread and will use it to be a sort of gathering place for scary stories from Russia and discussion beyond the dead spy issue.

dead russian ex-spy

That ex-Russian spy died, having fallen ill shortly after gaining British citizenship.  He was poisoned by an extraordinarily rare radioactive element, which suggests that the assassin had serious backing.  In a statement read after his death, the ex-spy accused his nemesis Putin.

Reuters isn't sure what the fallout will be since Europe needs Putin's gas and the US needs his support against Terrism.

Wheee.

Nacho and I (mostly Nacho) have been telling you for years that mother Russia is a ticking time-bomb of trouble.

At this point I'm starting to lose my ticking timebomb sense.  It's either the crippled tortoise of trouble, or Putin is simply an incompetent small fry who can't win a somewhat organized internal war and lashes out at journalists and people on the street in fits of vodka-addled bitterness and  what appears to be a childlike sense of nostalgia.

fajwat:
I get the sense that Putin's thorough.  I think he has a sense of how young and healthy he is, and wants to finish consolidating power as his first project.  I get a sense of working toward completeness oozing out of Russia.

RottingCorpse:
I think Putin is a nutjob who's more likely than anyone on the planet to so something extremely stupid with say, a nuclear weapon.
