If the Chinese are telling butterball to cut it out, it must be something.  Hopefully, they'll be able to rein him in.

And the US could do the same to him. 

And then there is that fat little butterball in North Korea, who seems eager to start the Korean War up again.

2018 is a election year in Russia and I am almost willing to bet Putin will win of course this is going to cause him more trouble.

It will be an interesting year, to say the least.

Little did anyone know when this map was produced, to what use the house would be put 18 years later.

How true.

It's just as well that the place was never a residence again after the murders.  I mean would YOU want to live there?

Last, but not least,
4. We needed someone like Stalin in the fight against the Nazis.

Kind of like today, except replace Nazis with terrorism (in regards to what happened in St. Petersburg on Monday).

Russians didn't revolt and overthrow the government during the nearly 70-year reign of the Soviet Union...despite the horrid conditions many of them were living in. Why would they be anymore likely to do with Putin in control?

Yes, but back then there was no Internet and no Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter.  That could make a difference. Many think it was Social Media that helped the so-called Arab Spring (even if things didn't turn out well in the end). 

Something like that could happen in Russia too.

the Russians might get fed up with Putin one day and it looks like many of them are. Who knows they might have a revolution.

Ironic if this were to happen this year, the 100th Anniversary of the last revolution.

Hope things turn out better this time.

Nice looking places.

Decades of Communist oppression seems to have taught the Church nothing.

Russia has dabbled with democracy from time to time, but never really managed to make it work.  Putin seems to want democracy only on his terms, he'll go so far, but no farther.  Still, Russia has had leaders much worse (Joseph Stalin, come on down).

Putin may be a de facto Tsar, but even he won't live forever.  After him, who knows what may happen.  Russia could get someone far worse, but, on the other hand, they could get someone better.
