Is Putin the World's Greatest Suicide Bomber?

From a millenarian perspective, the only way Russia is going to win this one is to blow up the world. Intelligence analysts at the C.I.A. and N.S.A. must be assessing the probability that Putin will become the world’s greatest suicide bomber. Formerly the province of ISIS   terrorists, Putin has now got the biggest explosive  hitched to his waist. Either NATO caves in or he blows himself up. Will the New York City hostage negotiation team, usually employed to talk jumpers down from the Brooklyn Bridge, come to the rescue? The fact that Putin is one of Randy Newman’s “short people,” is the only thing he has in common with Peter Sellers. However, Biden is obviously worried about a Dr. Strangelove situation with the tragicomedy ending in a mushroom cloud. Is that how desperate and angry the Russian president is? If he doesn’t make good on his nuclear alert, then his power exponentially deletes. “The dog that barks doesn’t bite” goes the old proverb.
