Putin has Arrested So Many But Can’t Stop a Terrorist Attack, Russians Say after Crocus Action

Paul Goble

            Staunton, Mar. 23 – After the Crocus City attack, Russians are pointing out that after 20 years in office, Putin has been able to silence or imprison all opposition politicians, forced out all independent journalists, imprisoned numerous writers for extremism, and even classified LGBT as extremists; but as these events show, he still can’t prevent a real terrorist attack.

            This is just one of the anecdotes Russians are telling each other that have been posted online by Moscow journalist Tatyana Pushkaryova (publizist.ru/blogs/107374/48077/-). Among the best of the rest are the following:

·       Russia’s real priorities are reflected in the time it took special forces to reach Crocus City and to come to peaceful rallies – 1.5 hours in the first case, and 10 to 15 minutes in the second.

·       Street cameras are good at identifying those who park illegally and issuing fines but they seem powerless against terrorists who come with full armor and then leave quietly.

·       After the last “election” in Russia, the German foreign ministry has decided to call Putin “the former head of a club in Dresden.”

·       I dissent; therefore, I exist.

·       Anyone thinking about volunteering to fight for Putin in Ukraine should first check the infrastructure of his home region to see if it is all wheelchair accessible.

·       Asked what they are expecting after the new six-year sentence the elections have imposed, some Russians say they are “waiting for parole.”

·       Now that Russian scientists have been removed from the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, all subatomic particles will be dispersed by riot police.

·       Russians now see they were deceived when the Kremlin told them they’d be loved after they attacked everyone they don’t like.

·       In soulless America, people don’t care how their neighbors live as long as they live better, while in spiritualized Russia, people don’t care how how anyone lives as long as their neighbors have it worse.

·       Before going back into the bunker, a Russian leader says that everyone should hang on and have a nice day.
