Boris Nemtsov's murder -- who dunnit?
By Donald Hank
February 28, 2015

First a review of the current geopolitical landscape. Nothing ever happens in a vacuum.

The world is divided essentially into 2 geopolitical axes

Axis 1:

Syria-Iran-Russia-China and the rest of the BRICS-Hezbollah, and the rest of the Eurasian union

Axis 2:

US-EU-Israel-Saudi Arabia-ISIS (created by the US and supported by Saudi money) and minor US allies like Japan, Korea, etc

Jordan, Libya, Syria and Egypt
are not allied with anyone in particular and for this reason, have independantly fought ISIS, much to the chagrin of Washington, which refuses to take out ISIS because to them, taking out Assad is much more important, and in truth, ISIS is the only US ally that can take out Assad without political repercussions. So they need ISIS, even though they pretend to be horrified by its rampages and random murder. Remember that both political parties fought hard for congressional permission to attack Assad's troops with missiles last year. Again, Assad is their hated enemy even though (personally I think BECAUSE) he protects Christians. It was Putin who spoiled their fun by intervening successfully to persuade Assad to destroy chemical weapons (the US-backed "moderates" were suspected of having used such weapons and blamed it on Assad). But that made Putin persona non grata in the Washington oligarchy.

Now you may be surprised that I put ISIS in the same axis with the US, but there are only a little more than 30,000 of them and if the US and allies were sincere, ISIS would be defeated by now. Please note that while Israel apparently has the chutzpah, the trained military and the weapons to go after Iran, many times its size, it has not raised a finger to help us in the fight against ISIS. And the US is not pressuring it to do so. ISIS is clearly in the Western axis but no one dares to say this, except me.

Now what about that murder in Moscow just now?

The same propaganda machine that wants you to think that Assad is an enemy, even though most people ought to know he is the only defense Syrian Christians have, also wants us to believe that Putin is behind the murder of his political foe Boris Nemtsov and that his intervention in Ukraine has nothing to do with protecting Russian speakers (even though their homes are being bombed by the US-backed Junta).

After all, Nemtsov was planning a big rally in Moscow tomorrow, so would that not be the time for Putin to kill him?

Actually not.

Here is what does not add up:

Putin knows that this is the wrong man to kill and the wrong time to do it, because of the delicate political situation he is in. Further, Putin is a very careful man, too careful to please a lot of Russians. They'd have loved to see him deploy weapons and personnel massively in Ukraine and bring it under Russian control. Before Western weapons and advisors started arriving would have been the perfect time to invade.

So if Putin is the swashbuckling brash tyrant he is portrayed as in the Western media, why did he not do that?

Answer: When Putin talks about "partnering" with the West, he is not just flapping this mouth. He really still thinks of us as his partners, even though our Satan worshippers in Washington have done everything in their power to destroy his reputation.

Question: In today's geopolitical situation, with Putin struggling to salvage his reputation with the West, but with the US desperate to sink his presidency in Russia, cui bono? Who benefits from the murder of Boris Nemtsov?

Remember that the US oligarchs have ties deep inside the Russian state. George Soros, for example, admitted on the Fareed Zakaria show that his foundation was involved in the bloody overthrow of the duly elected government of Kiev and the Russian government worries that Western agitators could be stirring the revolutionary pot in their own country.

I don't think I have to tell you who benefits most from this murder.

Your elites are desperate for you to support their war effort against Russia, a nuclear power that will certainly enlist the aid of another nuclear power if it is in trouble.

Are the sheeple gullible enough to be swayed, just as they were in every other of the wars we have ignominiously lost for the last 70 years?

Sadly, polls suggest that We the People are putty in the hands of the media and political class.
