BEWARE! Why You [ and especially Putin ]Should Beware the Ides of March

It would be the most devastating rhyme of history if somebody managed to assassinate Putin on this day.

    I don’t know-
    I got the divorce papers from the Evil First Wife served to me on the ides back in ’88, or ’89. That wasn’t such a bad day at all.
    Even so, I can’t see anything good coming out of an assassination right now.

    The assassins—among them Marcus Brutus, Cassius, Decimus Brutus and at least 30 others—were only able to get to Caesar because:

    1. Caesar was confident that anyone who wanted him dead would not act because his death would lead to yet another Roman civil war.
    2. Many of his killers were men he trusted.
    3. Caesar had dismissed his German bodyguard because he felt invincible.
    4. Caesar ignored numerous portents about his death.
    5. In fact, on the morning of March 15, 44 BC Caesar decided to stay home. One of his killers, his close friend Decimus Brutus, went to Caesar’s house and convinced him to attend the Senate meeting.
    6. Caesar said at a dinner the night before his murder that he preferred a quick death, as if he had a premonition of what was afoot.

    All of these had to occur for Caesar to be assassinated. Those who fantasize about Putin being assassinated have no idea how such a thing is done. Lindsay Graham is one such fool. Mitt Romney another. Mark Levin yet another. Here is an explanation of Putin’s protection:


    It would be far easier to assassinate a US senator than the president of Russia. A talk show host would be easy-peasy.

    Out of the tens of thousands of world leaders in 6000 years, how many have been killed in office?

    Incidentally, everyone involved in the conspiracy to assassinate Caesar was hunted down and killed by Octavian.

    Now imagine a failed assassination attempt on Putin. Now imagine that failure being traced back to the US government. Goodbye New York, Boston and Washington DC.

    What some imagine for Putin.


    Those who killed Caesar—who was History’s most complete man—were mice. Caesar himself had forgiven all of his enemies and had protected the Jews. He followed Christ’s law 44 years before the Son of Man Himself was born.

    Pure speculation, based on what Putin said he was intending to do, but …..
    It’s too late, the die is cast. Saudi is in talks now with China to accept payment in yuan. That could or would lead to the collapse of the world banking system, currently based on the petrodollar.

    And why should they not? The USA (Biden) is propping up the Saudi’s enemies with pallets of cash and enabling their pursuit of the nuclear bomb. The USA is too weak or senile to do anything about Iran’s missile attack on our Iraq consulate.

    Putin wants to bring down the economic system that wars against anyone or thing the West doesn’t like; not by armed war but cutting off or manipulating their economies. Japan declared war on those grounds. Putin has proposed a ‘domain banking system’ (my term) where the Islamic world has their own bank and interest rates, Brazil and S. A., Russia and western Asia, African bank, etc.

    Not my thoughts or analysis, it’s what Putin has repeatedly said, based on a Malaysian PMs idea. If China accepts, it looks like Putin has 3/4 of the world population and 1/3 of the economy lined up with this to leave the West. If so it’s going to be extremely interesting times. But at this moment, Putin himself isn’t necessary for his plan to succeed.

    One can have all the close in security in the world, a determined sniper, whom is patient, is unstoppable.

      Rogue Male by Geoffrey Household. His only good book, but it is great.

    • Mike Austin March 15, 2022, 7:26 PM

      Not so. Many rebels have thought thus. Their bones lie moldering in unknown forests. As I wrote, it is very–extremely—difficult to kill a prominent figure. Some rando assassin might be willing to kill some figure even at the cost of his own life. And so? History is full of such romantics. Their bones lie moldering in unknown forests.

      There is no such thing as an “unknown sniper”. Those who fantasize thus never consider that their target might have something unknown to an enemy.

      As I wrote, the number of assassinated world leaders is infinitesimally small. Killing one man does not change History. Assassins like to think so, but most of them are killed as well.

      Killing one man does nothing—Caesar, Lincoln and Ferdinand excepted. Killing Putin would insure that 50,000,000 Americans would be incinerated. Quite the funeral pyre.

        I am afraid that our so-called elites are evil and psychopathic enough to try, or at the very least try to figure a way. Whether Putin is replaced by someone peacefully or by another way we very well may find the replacement to be even less to the western powers liking.

      • Dirk March 16, 2022, 7:04 AM

        Mike, are you addressing me?

        A lil history, I’ve attended at least twenty state and federal sniper schools, I’ve shot the barrel out of 308s five times now, 300wms twice, and 338lms twice now. I shoot very little now, I understand those training rounds are going to have names on em before long

        It is acknowledged at advanced sniper schools the above. I love ya man. Your way the fuck out of your lane here, friend.

        What any close in protection detail fears is I’m fact a competent sniper.

        Fortunately those teams know that competent snipers are usually rational men/ women, who understand killing their charge only changes things for a day or week. Some others shit bag takes his or her place, continues doing what their handlers want.

        • Mike Austin March 16, 2022, 7:35 AM

          Yes, though I was mainly addressing the phrase that says, “The world is only one bullet away from being saved.” I was not addressing your competence with a rifle. I was addressing the lack of evidence for a snipers being effective way to kill politicians and world leaders.

          Being the world’s best sniper means nothing if you cannot get near the target. If something were so simple to do, it would have been done many times. In fact, of all the political assassinations—and even the failed attempts—since the invention of muskets, almost all of them were done with knives. Only JFK was killed by a sniper.

          Think of all the truly evil men who governed nations in the last 200 years. Why were they not taken out by snipers? Why did not Dulles try taking out Castro that way? How was Diem assassinated?

          Snipers can wreak havoc in ruined cities like Baghdad. As for relying upon them to change History…well, show me the evidence.

    I’m still trying to catch up to Saint Patty’s Day, much less the Ides of March.

    • ghostsniper March 16, 2022, 4:30 AM

      I’m going to try to make corned beef and cabbage from scratch for the first time.
      If it fails the possums might get a nice treat tomorrow night.
      On Fri their rectums will be quaking….

      • Dirk March 16, 2022, 7:14 AM

        Ghost, my wife prepared Corned beef and Cabbage, last weekend. Use to hate that worse the fried liver, I enjoyed the meal Sat night.

        I’m off to VA Reno today, found more dark skin over my right eye. Think it’s Melanoma. I’ve had five major surgeries under the same eye for skin cancer years ago. Moses surgery wouldn’t accomplish the required removal.

        That’s what happens to young drunk Sailors, ya pass out on the beech in the sun. That is until I discovered beef eaters gin. Then I always passed out in the shade! Ha ha.

        I’m a bit concerned honestly, I’m seeing a shadow in my right eye vision. I’ve already purchased a series of eye patch’s, one for me, and my grandsons to wear when we’re goofing off.

      • KCK March 16, 2022, 7:15 AM

        We made it the first time just last week! cast iron and the oven. Already has lots of salt in the cut if it’s a brined cut. Delicious.

      • Mike Austin March 16, 2022, 7:42 AM

        Sorry boys. My Cashew Chicken over Basmati Rice trumps your Corned Beef and Cabbage. Washed it down with whiskey. Having leftovers today.

  • jwm March 16, 2022, 8:02 AM

    My least favorite meal. I’d rather open a can.
    No love for corned beef, less than none for cabbage, and still less for boiled carrots and potatoes.
    yuk to the Nth power.


    • ghostsniper March 16, 2022, 1:35 PM

      I’m hopeful it will be good but if it’s not I won’t cry. My mother used to make it regularly but I haven’t eaten it in at least 50 years. As far as Dirk’s mention of liver and onions. Another one of my mothers regular meals and I always hated everything about it. When we’d come home from school we could smell that shit cooking blocks away and know that the rest of the day was ruined. I bought a Libby’s can of the corned beef and a head of cabbage. First time I ever bought either, maybe the last. I scoped out some recipes online and it seems like pretty basic stuff. We’ll see. Now, where’s that green food coloring for the brews?

  • Bill in Tennessee March 16, 2022, 1:33 PM

    Putin, you say? Hmmm, no, I have other people, traitors all, in mind.

    • ghostsniper March 16, 2022, 5:48 PM

      That’s right Bill. I have no weapon that can reach 5000 miles.
      But I have a knife that can bleed a neck at 1 yard and a gun that can explode a head at 1000 yds.
      THAT’s where my focus lies.
      In realms I can control.
      Fantasy is not my thing, unless I’m playing around in the workshop…..
