I never thought that dictatorship can return to Russia even under a democratic form.

But it is a fact.

Is clearly looking to create a new balance of power and political influence, and what weapon can be better than the return of some form of dictatorship that could send negative mutual signals to one part of the world also a positive and negative signals to another part of world.

A new cold war this time position in another part of the world, trying to balance the lack of credibility.

This can lead to future employment ie those areas along the ruins of war and theaters that have been or will be abandoned in the future so that they can be fed with ideologies based on good military protection of benevolent dictatorship.

Also I could see the repositioning in Europe by returning to the imperial borders by force through us accepting international treaties forced econnomice negative situations and attitudes of these ambiguous results.

Another step that I think has already been made ​​is that Iran could obtain nuclear weapons by empathy protection that benefit from Russia as direct user of the weapon in case of extreme war in the area.

So I think that what happened in Russia is a very dangerous game with unpredictable consequences in the future strictly and directly related to the current global negative economic situation.

They can in fact maybe want to return to the old order to the invaluable source of natural resources from former Soviet territories.

Any thought?

The way I figure it, dictatorship never left Russia. Yeltsin winning 92% of votes? Putin being ex-KGB, with huge support from the entire country? Very fishy indeed. My 2 cents.

At least they tried to keep up appearances that even the puncture of view of image means something.

A Russian military unit has arrived in Syria, according to Russian news reports, a development that a United Nations Security Council source told ABC News was "a bomb" certain to have serious repercussions.

Russia, one of President Bashar al-Assad's strongest allies despite international condemnation of the government's violent crackdown on the country's uprising, has repeatedly blocked the United Nations Security Council's attempts to halt the violence, accusing the U.S. and its allies of trying to start another war. Now the Russian Black Sea fleet's Iman tanker has arrived in the Syrian port of Tartus on the Mediterranean Sea with an anti-terror squad from the Russian Marines aboard according to the Interfax news agency.


The Assad government has insisted it is fighting a terrorist insurgency. The Russian news reports did not elaborate on the Russian troops' mission in Syria or if they are expected to leave the port. The presence of Russian troops in Syria could be a "pretty obvious" show of support to the regime, according to Russian security expert Mark Galeotti.

Russia is pursuing its national interests. The Red Army has been within its own borders for twenty years. Now the men in the Kremlin are asserting their presence again.

The United States moved its presence into the former Soviet Union after 9/11. The fact that the Russians are now reacting does not mean that Russia is under the boot of a dictator. All you can deduce is that national interest is informing Russian foreign policy again.

The first Cold War never truly ended so it would just be a continuation of some sorts.

I agree about the cold-war never actually ceasing. America just won for a while. With electronics being as advanced as they are now it just upped the seriousness especially in light of the news China has built security loopholes in American military parts.

The missile shield kicked things off, but I'm sure Every country on the planet blinked when it went on-line.
