Vladimir Ras-Putin should have shared the fate of Ceausescu when the Soviet Union fell. All top Commie leaders in Eastern Europe should have been liquidated, and the other Party members sent to the gulags they created, then given nice big "show trials" where they would have to publicly denounce socialism in all its flavors, then curse Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and all the other Soviet "saints." Then they should have been forced to dig up and spit on the mummies of Lenin and Stalin. Then they should have spent the rest of their lives as slave laborers building monuments and museums so future generations would know all about the socialist holocaust. Even after demonstrating penitence, they should have been banned from any participation whatsoever in politics.
