The Russian opposition movement which has risen to prominence since the Dec. 4 parliamentary elections has not said its last word, says 35-year-old Sergey Udaltsov, one of its most visible figures.

Lets hope Putins goons don't attempt to silence him, as it tends to be permanent when that government is involved.

That's a fact! Somehow or other, his enemies find themselves being served meals laced with radioactive isotopes! I wonder how Sergey Udaltsov has stayed alive this long.

See F. William Engdahl, Why Washington Wants ‘Finito’ with Putin09 Jan 2012

The U.S. is trying to destabilize Russia, just as it is trying to destabilize Syria. This is all part of what's called the "Great Game" -- the war to gain control of the Asian "heartland" and the resources of Siberia.

> Addressing the Ambassador directly, Prince Andrew then turned to regional politics. He stated baldly that “the United Kingdom, Western Europe (and by extension you Americans too)” were now back in the thick of playing the Great Game. More animated than ever, he stated cockily: “And this time we aim to win!”[11]

-- "Wikileaks files: US ambassador criticised Prince Andrew", BBC, 30 Nov 2010

> When everyone is dead, the Great Game is finished. Not before.

-- Rudyard Kipling. [13]

Russia is now insisting more loudly that the U.S. cannot have Iran: Iran is off-limits. See Russia: Attack on Iran a 'Direct Threat to Our Security'.

The U.S. response is to foment revolution in Russia.

So, the US is responsible for the Russian unrest?? Well, what about China, that's currently on the way to becoming the number one power player? The US is practically owned by China which holds a large chunk of it's debt!

Does this ever have to be watched. I will give Russia a lot of credit. Their dissatisfaction is well organized, and the leaders of this movement are visible. The Middle East should look to Russia to better understand how a potential revolt should be organized. Being an angry, unruly, disorganized got you(Egypt) no place - if anything you will probably be worse off than you were under Mubarik.
