The spectre of Genghis Khan is haunting Europe

The most recent congress of the United Russia party was held
long ago, but we have to remember it now. During its work our
edition was put to shame, since the Congress failed to announce the
constitutional reform, which would have resulted in granting
unlimited power for an unlimited period to new Prime Minister
Vladimir Putin, and new president Medvedev would actually have lost
much of his power. Our error was due to the fact that the above
persons decided not to bother too much and just swapped.

The tandem managed to surprise not only the outside audience.
Initially, the delegates were ready for two options: either Putin
alone would head the party electoral list, or he would do it jointly
with Medvedev. However, both sets of ballots prepared appeared
unnecessary. The Congress announced a long break to print ballot
papers with Medvedev alone.

In terms of the internal political situation before the
elections it was absolutely clear. For example, Putin has long
disliked 'his' party apparatus (remember the fate of Khrushchev or
Gorbachev). He always distanced himself from it, invented the party
leadership without party membership, and finally created a supra-
party structure, the Popular Front, and filled it with reputable
people. It was only left for him to quit the party and appoint a
'supervisor' to be possibly 'eaten up' by the party apparatus.

Currently the results of all the upcoming elections are
obvious. Their predictability discourages those who would divide the
votes as they pleased. So instead of the real voting result, the
United Russia party will receive about 70 % of votes, additional
votes due to the Popular Front and liberal voters who still have a
liking for Medvedev.

But after the 'crucial' United Russia congress another
ambiguity was identified. Why did not Washington, and especially the
EU, oppose the above combination? Within the past couple of years
the West has clearly demonstrated its negative attitude towards

According to some political analysts, the US is increasingly
more confident that the so-called 'Arab revolutions' are plunging
the global politics into imbalance. While struggling with Iran, the
West failed to notice the sharp strengthening of Turkey... One never
knows if the revolution under the banner of Islam could overwhelm
the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. In that case active
infiltration of Islamists in Europe and the US will start. The
gloomy predictions of Nostradamus about the war of the South against
the North will become increasingly real. They have finally realized
in Brussels, the Vatican and Washington that they need Russia as a
shield. No wonder at the recent forum in Yaroslavl such a famous
character like Brzezinski spoke long and weary of that, and he was
supported by future US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. No
wonder Pope Benedict XVI has been waxing rhapsodic to the Russian
Orthodox Church.

It seems that the fears of Europeans and Americans in view of
the second coming of Genghis Khan have overpowered their 'great
personal animosity' toward Putin. All of a sudden, the fact that the
West allegedly credits Putin with the desire to revive the USSR has
become his 'trump card'. But who in today's Russia will give up
playing this role? So, get back to the galleys - this time for the
sake of the entire Christian world, no matter how many years it will
