The US has only on MBT model, Europe many. Why not European align their material and logistics, in the first stage. And this harmonization will have economical benefits too. Then the countries that feel so, can have closer military co-operation.

The common EU army is in the horizon though. And that makes causes paranoia to some. But the main property of horizon is that you can never reach it. ;)


Not able to spin the situation as being the fault of the U.S., Donald Trump, the Republican party, neo-Nazis, or one of your other perennial boogey men? Shocking to hear it acknowledged that Europeans are responsible for the primary task of attending to European welfare.

You are such a noob here. Those who have been longer time around know my opinion on this issue quite well. ;)

So it goes.

Mr. Putin won 73.9% of the vote, according to state-run pollster VTsIOM. His nearest challenger, the Communist Party’s Pavel Grudinin, won 11.2%, the poll said.

Difference between Putin and FDR are the length of the terms.
Russian presidents serve 6 yr terms. I believe that this is Putin's 4th term.

US presidential terms are 4 yrs and IIRC FDR died around a year into his 4th term.

But yeah----president for life.

Russian presidential term was four years from 1992 to 2012, Jeltsin 1992-2000, Putin 2000-2008, Medvedev 2008-2012, after 2012 the term was extended to six years, Putin 2012-2018, 2018-...

Nothing is true and everything is possible. :roll:

Also don't forget Putin got his fellow presidential lapdog to remove the restriction on consecutive presidencies after Putinski had to skip a term due to the law. Fixed that pretty quickly, didn't he?

Medvedev 2024. ;)

But perhaps there is a shortening the presidential term to two years well before 2024, and after 2024 pendulum swings to x0 years. :lol:
