(6-2-14) So what's the historical significance?
The illusion of "democracy" and bogus elections are sprouting up all over the world. For instance, in Syria, this election becomes just an excuse for not getting involved in the Syrian situation.
Other countries like Germany, UK and even the Obama Regime use a Syrian election and the fact that Assad is going to allow elections, despite the fact he's the only one running and his party the Baath party is the only party in Syria, roundly applauding these elections.
But Assad is smart since he's holding these elections. He's doing the same thing that Vlad Putin does, which is that every time the Russian regime comes under threat, they hold some sort of a bogus election to let everyone else off the hook, as it were, who wants to get involved in Russia's business.
In Syria for example, every country that has wanted to get involved in overthrowing Assad, won't do so. The United States, Britain and France, etc. wont get involved and then the UN will come up with some pabulum.
