Why can't this happen to Putin?…. wouldn't it be much cheaper and faster than supporting ukraine?…. Wouldn't it make the price of gas go down quicker?…. price of fertilizer go down faster?…. seems to me that every human on this earth that eats food and somehow depends upon petroleum would benefit greatly if Putin was no more?….
