    Default Putin: Russia-Belarus Merger 'Possible' And 'Desirable'

    SELIGER LAKE, Russia Prime Minister Vladimir Putin says he supports calls for Russia to merge with its western neighbor Belarus.

    Belarus has been an independent state since the Soviet Union fell apart in 1991.

    Speaking at a Kremlin youth camp, Putin said Monday the return to Soviet-style unity is "possible, desirable and wholly dependent on the will of the Belarusian people."



    Russia and Belarus already have open borders, with their citizens able to travel freely and seek employment in either country.

    Authoritarian Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko is a fierce defender of his country's sovereignty.

    But Belarus is mired in its worst financial crisis since independence, and Lukashenko is under pressure to sell key parts of its industry to Russians in exchange for a bailout.

    It is about time for Small Russians and White Russians to reunite with their mother state, the Federal Republic of Russia.
    5 Stages of Grief:

    Denial: The initial stage: "It can't be happening." Maniot is on top of me.
    Anger: "Why ME? It's not fair?!" (either referring to God, oneself, or Maniot perceived, rightly or wrongly, as "responsible")
    Bargaining: "Just let me stay to post another day Maniot, please."
    Depression: "I'm so sad, why are you picking on me Maniot?"
    Acceptance: "It's going to be OK." There is always Skadi.

    Russia had better annex it before NATO bombs it in its next well-intentioned anti-dictator fiasco.

    One of the prinipal problems with the break up of the USSR was that it foisted independence on Soviet 'republics' that were either too ethnically unstable (such as Georgia) or that simply didn't have a sufficiently strong sense of national identity; Belarus perhaps being the clearest example of this. Let's not forget, many of these ex-Soviet states had never, ever been independent states before.

    I support this. Belarus will be a lot better off as a federal subject of Russia than independent since it'd get access to Russia's vast resources for virtually free.

    Wouldn't be a huge deal. Stay away from the Baltic states and Poland though.

    Belarusians and Ukrainians are just Russians-in-denial just as Macedonians and Montenegrins are Serbs-in-denial... Belarus down, Ukraine is next.

    That is a positive thing about dictators: their countries remain sovereign because they don't share their power with anyone.

    If Ł dies suddenly, I doubt that the opposition will be ready to replace him with someone. There will be no honest elections (the officials have already forgotten how to organize ones) and most probably one of apparatchiks will become a new president. Since there are no people with strong personalities around Ł, it will be somebody weak and corruptible... Got it, Putin? Have you ever considered Ł's assasination? I know you can have the thing done.
