1. Vladimir Putin Joins List Of People Who Might As Well Be Nominated For A Nobel Peace Prize For All That Means Anymore
Russian President Vladimir Putin is one the 278 people who have been nominated for a 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. You know, that prize that was recently given to the U.S. president who's been carrying out military drone attacks on Pakistani civilians for the past few years. Yeah, that Nobel Peace Prize.
If Vladimir Putin was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, then I should be nominated for the Always-Makes-His-Bed Prize.— Chris Schleicher (@cschleichsrun) March 5, 2014
2. Crimean Parliament Votes Unanimously For Disputed Region To Be Smoldering Decimated Pawn In Global Power Game
Members of the Supreme Council of Crimea have voted unanimously to seek permission from Vladimir Putin's administration for the southern Ukrainian region to officially join the Russian Federation. If the request is granted, Crimean citizens may be able to vote on the matter as early as March 16. Which means that the entire peninsula could become a smoking crater of unceasing warfare by early summer. If they're lucky.
