Vegetable gardens and Internet firewall first line of defense for Putin
Russian President Vladimir Putin is counting on
the 40 percent of food produced by “dacha gardens” to fend off food
sanctions. Yes, Russia claims 40 percent of its food and animals from
The U.S. and Britain had similar gardens in World 2,
but they were mostly a morale lifter. The two counties relied more on
factories churning out more than 650,000 tanks and 242,000 planes. The Russian combined total was 242,000.
Russian media are full of reports of how these gardens will make Western sanctions useless.
For those who might question this logic, there will be nowhere to turn.
Putin already has a stranglehold on the media, and plans to shut down
Putin is going to be under more pressure to shut down all media after a

a regional lawmaker who was beaten and hospitalized last month after he
began documenting the deaths of soldiers who were based in Pskov, said
no one is to know.
Putin appears to be believe that spreading thousands and thousands of
people on social media sites and socalled Web news sites to spread lies
covers him. The pathetic record of U.S. President George W. Bush gave
him a head start.
Putin’s strategy didn’t work for Hitler and Goebbels.
Putin has expanded his boasts, claiming he can take five capital cities
in five days. Yet, his forces remain at a standstill in the Ukraine.
Maximum use of force does not allow “lttle green men” in unmarked
uniforms. Lines of tanks are easily spotted. NATO is ready, and though
it was good bet they would have stood still six months ago, who knows
what will happen now. The new axis of evil is Russia, North Korea and
the ISIS caliphate.
