Unexpected collateral damage from Libya (in Russia)

Changing world orders sometimes can have amusing side effects.  Putin earlier today repeated the Qaddafi words assimilating the UN resolution to the Crusades.  Well, HIS president, Medvedev was not amused and said that choice of words was "unacceptable".

See, that is why in autocracies they only chose family to succeed them or share power with them.  When there is no blood link one never knows when the youngster may start speaking up!

This is going to be fun as other such "incidents" are sure to happen here and there.....

  5. It's only talk. After all, Chavez has been known to say some things that sound perfectly rational. When there's a real difference between them on policy, then we should pay attention. Though the warning about line of succession is certainly true. Not that you can necessarily trust family, either. That's one reason why these guys all find it so hard to let go.

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
