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.
