Putin Signs Law Allowing Him to Run for Two More Terms

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law allowing him to run for two more terms in the Kremlin once his current term ends in 2024, a document posted on a government website shows  today, reports Reuters.

Since Putin appears to be one of the very few global leaders that approaches foreign harassment in a calm fashion, this is very significant. He may be the one peg that keeps global conflict from blowing completely out of hand. That said, current U.S. leadership is doing everything it can to provoke Putin in Ukraine. Let us see what these mad provocations bring.



  1. Putin and the government of Iran seem to understand the US federal government's childish routine of harassment until it gets an appropriate response and then claiming it was the victim of an unprovoked attack.

    By childish it is because this is the same as two siblings in the back seat of a car one doing minor annoying things to the other until the 2nd child smacks the first one. The first one, the annoyer, then tells a parent 'he hit me!'.

  2. Putin has no male heir. And herein lies an inevitable problem for Russia, the new Smuta (Time of Troubles). In his place I'd consider finding a promising young man (preferably of noble blood) and adopting him and training him for the rule.

  3. The US model is that voters (believe that they) elect different men to be president every four years, but the outcome is almost indistinguishable from having the same person in the White House indefinitely; the Russian model is at least more honest about this.
