Given Putin’s views, it’s perhaps natural to question if Russia has become the latest bogeyman for the deep state and its NATO allies.
It can send CIA operatives into the defiant nation who pose as “journalists” or “musicians.” Those operatives begin spreading propaganda to incite a violent color revolution and install a US-friendly puppet.
As the defiant nation, you have a relatively narrow range of options. If you let the operatives spread the propaganda, you risk being violently overthrown, or becoming a failed state. If you imprison or assassinate the operatives, the deep state will then use its media broadcasting centers in the West to portray you as a blood thirsty dictator who kills journalists and musicians.
I still remember when many in the “freedumb bowel movement” were defending Pussy Riot in the name of “freedom”.
Because, ya know… freedumb.
