Just saying, hypothetically, in another country, if a member of the Cabinet, say one Custer F. Machiavelli, is silently disenchanted with the way his government is being run as opposed to how interactive he is with his constituency but because his PM is the maximum leader he dares not oppose him – as for instance in the shutdown of the country’s major industries – but gets a golden opportunity to oust him while he goes MIA on an extended holiday abroad by negotiating and conspiring with the armed forces that he was going to take over the country and will announce that he has assumed the role of PM and that all they had to do was send the now ex-PM in exile or threaten him with immediate arrest if he returns for crimes he committed against the people of the country – especially for the arbitrary, nonsensical, insane way he has made the country a basket case – but which might yet be saved under Custer’s new leadership.
Just saying, further, if that country’s armed forces is not just to be seen as an assemblage of toothless and brainless bulldogs and if they could see for themselves that change by constitutional means does not seem likely (but is necessary) and that they who have powers that go beyond what they are made to believe they have rise up and support the new leader, change would be had speedily and peacefully as the country is returned to the Paradise it once was when the political leader knew his place and batted in his crease and all criticism of the army that they were parasitic would cease forever via that one good deed that proved that they are not there just to blindly prop up a villainous government.
So while the world is stretched to its maximum in economic, humanitarian and military means Putin, one insane man, is responsible for this. So, I say, invite him to attend the G7 meeting and while he is out have Maria Sharapova replace him as the boss at the Kremlin – thereby giving Russia the new look Putin seeks via bloodshed. It would be a bloodless beauty and the beast transition.
Ent? See how easy?
