Putin Dismisses Alleged Plot Threat: Today's Cartoon

You know, if we're to believe that Vladimir Putin is not concerned about an alleged assassination plot during his trip to Iran because he doesn't listen to special services, then I can certainly understand why it is that they don't want him to ever leave home.

Then again, it must be tough for the Russian president to take any threat seriously when apparently his own security detail is far more concerned (or lazy) about going outside than he is.

While Putin has been able to craft an image of himself as a strong, determined leader, I'm not so sure that the same can be said about Russian security; whom Putin has seemingly dismissed as a bunch of "nervous nellies" and brushed off, along with the latest threat against him.

Now, I understand that you can't live your life in fear; but then, these alleged plotters are not exactly trying to "scare" Vladimir Putin. So let's hope that if he doesn't take the threat seriously, he will still at least decide to wear a vest... bulletproof or otherwise.
