OK ATS HERE HE IS, THE INCREDIBLE REAPPEARING VLAD THE INHALER! The guy everyone in Western Governments Loves to Hate. Looks like he was just having a bit of Quiet Vlady Time and was not Overthrown, Killed, Sick, etc.

Just putting this out there for My ATS Friends and Family. I've got a feeling this guys going to be round for a long time and all the wishing The Neo Con's can muster up in their Satanic Chambers aren't gonna get rid of this dude.

Thanks for taking a look Guys and Gals and Peace

After disappearing for ten days from the public's eye, theories surrounding his absence ranged from the tabloidy (fathering a baby with a Russian gymnast), to the trivial (lower back issues), to the bizarre (another putsch in the Kremlin), to the idiotic (dead). All that can be cast aside when moments ago we learn that the Russian president simply wanted some time away and has now reappeared for his meeting with the Kyrgyz president. From Bloomberg:


That settles that, at least until the next rumor.

But while Putin may have kept a low visibility profile, he was very well heard, and as reported earlier today, the Russian president ordered nearly 40,000 troops in northern and western Russia to be put on full alert early Monday as part of snap-readiness exercises, official news agencies quoted Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu as saying.

According to the WSJ, the maneuvers are the latest in a series of such checks in recent years and follow dozens of military exercises conducted over the past year since the start of the Ukraine crisis.

The military exercises announced on Monday involve Russia's Northern Fleet, as well as airborne and other troops in the west of the country. The main focus is to test readiness in the Arctic, where Russia has expanded its military presence in recent years, officials said. The exercises are scheduled to continue through to March 21.

"New challenges and threats to military security require further increases in the military capabilities of the armed forces and special attention to the newly formed strategic group in the northern direction, " Mr. Shoigu said.
Many more to come:

As the WSJ concludes, "western officials have criticized Russia's frequent exercises as threatening and provocative, a charge Moscow parries with its own allegations that military maneuvers near Russia's borders by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are destabilizing." Oddly enough, they have nothing to say about NATO parking tanks and armors and various other weapons just feet away from the Russian border." target="_blank" class="postlink">www.zerohedge.c... om/news/2015-03-16/putin-reappears-puts-40000-troops-full-alert-part-snap-readiness-exercises

His disappearance, a myriad of other details that indicated that something unusual was going on are not going to be so easily dismissed. This is not a rumor I'm starting, merely mentioning the unresolved facts of the matter.

The last 10 day "Putin Blackout" was part of the exercises I bet.

NATO jumped in with the "opposing" social media hysteria.

I'm willing to lean more towards the notion that his disappearance was due to a period of military planning.

It's something we've never seen from Putin before, and that's why it threw so many people off. We've never been this close to military confrontation with Putin previously, so it seems plausible that he attempted to take some time away from the spotlight to make plans with military leaders and form a strategy, while his press and the Kremlin utterly failed to adequately cover for him.

The fact that the Kremlin was so bad at this suggests fractures in the Kremlin and a lot of distrust. There was really no need for the Kremlin to be so bad at this, they could have spent a week making videos of him working on something, discussing the planned celebrations in Red Square, even suggested that he was ill right from the start...

Everything is telling me that Putin left the Kremlin in the dark about this, went to have secure top-level meetings with his military, then came back and immediately started put this plan into action.

If you think the powers behind the scenes who control the West are any different from those who really control Russia, you need to do some more homework:

Czarist Russia, a thorn in the side of the money monopolists for many years, had been successfully removed from the world scene. This had been forecast forty-seven years earlier by top Illuminist Albert Pike, in his famous letter to Mazzini.

I Totally Agree With You PlanetXisHERE, Pike himself was a particularly nefarious character and I have read about this dude over the years and he was a particularly Nasty Piece Of Work IMHO
