So why did Vladimir Putin cry on hearing the presidential election results?
He knew that they had been rigged!
Given that he didn’t cry when the Kursk sank, leading to the loss of Russian lives and instead made a cruel joke about the incident on US TV, it has to be assumed that these were tears of joy:
I have the following conjecture that has not been proposed yet by the mainstream media.
Putin plans to follow in the footsteps of his comrade from Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, and engineer his domination on the Russian political scene until his final days.
In other words, at some point, presumably sooner rather than later, the servile State Duma will propose the adoption of a law declaring that Putin will be President for Life.
If he decides to step down at some point, he will still be able to control the new president from behind the scenes, stepping in and deposing the new President “in response to the public mood” or for some other reason.
Furthermore, the new law will state that Putin cannot be charged for any crimes committed while in office (such as the amassing of a fortune rumoured to exceed USD 20 billion in assets through various interests in different businesses (shares in LUKOIL, Gunvor, Rosneft, etc.) and also cash accounts in Switzerland, Germany, etc.
You heard it here first on 9 March 2012.
