    Don't you think that it is a little dangerous to suggest publically that the head of the KGB go?

    He may not make it home from work one day.

    BTW, Putin is said to be the richest man in the world.

    Of course, the KGB will never tell the truth, but here is a 2013 link to an estimate of Putin's personal wealth at 70 billion:



    Theories about Putin’s wealth are wrapped up in leaked diplomatic cables and shell companies. Most reports around the issue site a 2007 interview that German newspaper Die Welt conducted with a member of the Moscow high society, Stanislav Belkovsky.

    In the interview, Belkovsky claimed Putin controlled 37 per cent of oil company Surgutneftegaz and 4.5 per cent of natural gas monopoly Gazprom, giving him a fortune of about US$40 billion — the market price of these stakes at the time, Bloomberg reports.

    Belkovsky has since said Putin’s stake could now be worth between $60-70 billion, putting him in contention with Bill Gates, the wealthiest man in the world with a $72 billion fortune.

    CMG is an expert on Russia and Putin. He learned everything he knows about them from Zbigniew Brzezinski and other old time cold war Russo-phobic geopolitical strategists.

    "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof"

    It all belongs to the Creator, Jesus, who made everything.

    There are faithful stewards and unfaithful stewards. All will give an account. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    V. Putin may have a lot of oil futures which make his net worth a lot less than his accountant may be indicating in the ledger. Are there any Madoffs in Russia?

    This is also the kind of situation which has caused global conflict.

    Have we checked the value of our federal reserve notes lately?

    I just paid $6 for a loaf of 4:9 bread.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Ziggy is a liberal/leftist like you, Poncho, and your support for the richest man in the world is touching. Note that my source was Bloomberg--one of your leftie friends in NYC. You should have stayed away from OWS, Poncho, because 10 years ago you still had the common touch and were more logical.

    BTW, you do know that someone is making a list, don't you? The emperor/messiah went on a luxury vacation for 17 days so you can relax and have fun yourself.
