    1. We cannot see inside the Russian security system. Any close attempt will encounter old Soviet structures underlying the whole. The true heart of these structures was the Soviet Defense Council. This was the actual ruling core of the system — higher than the Politburo or the Central Committee. What is strange about the resignation of the Russian Government last week, is that the composition of the Defense Council (now called the Security Council) has not changed. Dmitry Medvedev is still the Number Two Man in the Security Council. How can this be? The resignation of the Government should have been mirrored by resignations from other bodies like the SEcurity Council. Time will tell us what this signifies, but we ought to consider the possibility that the leaders of Russia are being put out of harm’s way. If they are not in Moscow, a missile cannot kill them. They are preserved. Does anyone realize how much knowledge and experience of government is found in these leaders? Can they be spared in the event of a war — a war which they have been preparing for? If North Korea’s leader says the entire government of North Korea must consider themselves on a war footing since the assassination of Soleimani, what should we expect from the Russian government? War footing, for them, would signify relocation to points deep underground. Have I missed anything?
