Not one, but two online retailers selling Putin? There is only one logical reason for this: the regime has finally split – quite literally – in two. Within the next 48 hours, we will hear of the ascension of Sergei Ivanov to the Russian presidency via a palace coup. The remaining liberal members of government will form a coalition around Alexei Kudrin. Russia will then attempt to launch a full-scale invasion of the Baltic countries but the political instability caused by the change of power combined with economic recession will cause Russia to split into twenty different mini-states. We won’t have to worry about the Russian Threat after that – the former republics of Russia will be too busy bickering among themselves to challenge Western values.
Can I get that job with the Washington Post now?
