I am right behind you, Pussy Riot---but is your solution to the Putin you dislike all that much better?

Pussy Riot deserve credit and respect for the way they are prepared to put themselves on the line re their opposition to their President. I am behind them, but I just heard that they wish to put the man who Putin had put behind bars for ten years, in his place in the Kremlin. I really do wonder at the 'rightness ' of their decision. I also wonder if 'he' is all that much better. He is yet another (or was)  person who gained a huge amount of power after the fall of the old Soviet Union. That he attained so much wealth in an above the board, honest manner is questionable to say the least. Why put him in the same position as Putin? Is this not 'same as, same as,' politics? One does wonder at the thinking behind their position. I had thought Pussy Riot to be astute thinkers. Perhaps they have been carried away in the moment and maybe they have links to the person they wish to replace Putin. Oh well, time will tell. One thing I do not believe is that 'he' has had some sort of 'seeing-the-light-moment, biblical in nature, and now is really a genuine and wonderful person, capable of delivering freedom of thought and actions, to the people of Russia, in a 'fair' and equitable manner.  Think carefully, Pussy Riot!
