    Perhaps. One must wonder about the KGB tactics one is hearing more and more about:

    Now the KGB is known as the FSB. Putin worked for the KGB from 1975 to 1990. Showing he learned his police state lessons, Putin has eliminated democratic elections for Russian regional governors, squashed press freedom, imprisoned political rivals on alleged corruption charges, provided nuke technology to the maniac Mullahs in Iran, agreed to hold military exercises with the totalitarian PRC (just like our anti-ally France), sold missiles to Syria, promised to arm the Palestinians, sold weapons to Venezuela, etc. Back in the USSR.
