COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN ANTI-EMPIRE (FORMERLY CHECKPOINT ASIA)

 

“Did Putin Get Tereshkova [Russian legislator and former Cosmonaut] to Clear a Path [by relaxing application of term limit in the constitution] for Him to Stand for Reelection in 2024?”

 

It really doesn’t matter.

Considering the many serious threats and risks on the horizon – weak world economy, coronavirus pandemic, US aggression on many fronts, Turkish aggression in Syria – I’m inclined to think Ms. Tereshkova is right. Putin has shown himself to be the most skilful statesman of his day – far-sighted, calm, practical, undogmatic, excellent at selecting key staff, working hard to keep good relations in the world, and possessing a deep genuine regard for the welfare of his country.

I do think the world has been very fortunate in having both Putin and Xi at a challenging time, and I think it is likely to become even more challenging. The US is being run by truly dangerous people, and I don’t mean only Trump.
