It's getting eerily close to Orwell's 1984.




Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has proposed forming a "Eurasian Union" of former Soviet nations, saying the bloc could become a major global player competing for influence with the United States, the European Union and Asia.


Putin proposes setting up 'Eurasian Union'

Just how much of the former Soviet Union does he want to unite again? I really don't want to be run from Moscow, although many of the locals - paricularly the older ones - would love to return to the dreamy old days of cabbage, gulags and one left shoe.



1984 - a perpetual war between three megablocs. We'll have 4 instead.

Isn't he in the running for president again?

This is little more then pre-election chatter to get more publicity/votes.

Russian politics isn't like American. A President is just a figure head. Hypothetically, it is the Prime Minister who has power. However, in Putin's case, he made himself president because he'd already used up his terms in office and so put Medvedev into the hot seat. Medvedev, in return, makes damned sure the Russian public know who's really in power - Putin. He's quite vocal about it and in complete agreement.
Putin's from the great Russian tradition of one man, one rule. None of that faux democracy like in the West (two political parties and the sheep get to vote for a corporate spokesman). I like Putin but he really needs to grow a moustache or beard to fit in with his predecessors.
Can you really imagine the balls you'd have to have to take control of, and rule succesfully, Mother Russia?
