What could possibly go wrong?

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday that his government was resigning to give President Vladimir Putin room to carry out the changes he wants to make to the constitution...

Indeed. It's a known fact that the more unfettered power someone has, the more altruistic and wise they become.

I especially love that he was the driving force behind lengthening the amount of time a President could serve, but now wants to change it to no more than 2 terms for future Presidents.

I feel like there is a current soft coup going on over there right now and no one is noticing.

Something tells me that 25 years from now, Russia isn't going to become the USSR once again, but that it is going to become more Uganda under Idi Amin.

I'll take "more like Saddam Hussien" for $300 Alex. Putin is far more brutal than Nicholas was.

Yes, agreed. I was simply going with geographical relevance.

Curious, as you sometimes bounce back and forth on these topics:

1) Do you approve overall on the job Putin has done and how Russia is doing as a country over the last decade?

2) Do you approve of this current process regarding the dissolution of the Russian government?

Alas, a megalomaniac thinks rules are a good idea for other people, but that he/she should be able to do whatever the fuck they want.

Medvedev made the announcement on state TV sitting next to Putin who thanked Medvedev, a close ally, for his work.

Update: Medvedev was found dead of an apparent Opioid overdose.

The left thinks tyranny is a great idea as long as "good" people are in charge. In other words, them. They don't realize that tyranny is bad, no matter who the tyrant is.

The Clintons have already sent a sympathy card and some flowers.

You walked straight into this:


https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44852812

Trump sides with Russia against FBI at Helsinki summit

After face-to-face talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump contradicted US intelligence agencies and said there had been no reason for Russia to meddle in the vote.

Not really. You make tons of claims regarding Trump supporters preaching what they see/read on MSM.

So, are you backing your statement with first hand knowledge? Goes both ways...

Pretty basic statement that made sense.
We all can post some link about anyone but you made a strong blanket statement.

So, when were you in the SCIF with Trump when he said he trusts Russians over the folks in the SCIF with him?

What Trump or anyone says in public is NOT what is said in a SCIF. No matter what side of the aisle. Does not happen!

Even the pirate from Dodgeball would know this :
