Russian President Vladimir Putin “probably” approved the assassination of ex-KGB agent turned dissident Alexander Litvinenko in London, a British inquiry has found.

        • Israel, under Netanyahu, has committed most egregious crimes including state-sponsored assassinations, and I suspect “Bibi” was involved in the 1995 assassination of Yitzhak Rabin which effectively terminated the Oslo peace accords. It is also my opinion that factions within the U.S. government were involved in the most infamous assassination of them all, the brutal public slaughter of JFK in 1963.

          I play no favorites. Putin is just the latest in a long line of dangerous megalomaniac leaders. The criminal acts of one cannot justify the criminal acts of another. Someday, humanity must realize this.
