    Is Belarus next??

    For a peaceful democratic revolution? We had the velvet revolution in Czechoslovakia, the Serbian revolution, Rose revolution in Georgia, Orange Revolution in Ukraine, and Pink & Yellow in Krygzhstzyrzrzzzygz(whatever the hell that country is called)stan. Is Belarus next?

    If not, is the Belarussian language going to die?

    In Saakashvili's Georgia situation only worsened. So, I'll not be surprised much, if next revolution happens there.

    I think there is a bigger problem we must address. What happens when they run out of colors? Eastern Europe will go into a nosedive of stagnation without another businessman-led "revolution" carefully coordinated by the international press and supported by the US State Dept. I fear we will not see any more changes in the status quo of the former bloc for a thousand years after the Checkerboard Coup of 2012

    For the benefit of colour blind people there should be no red or green revolutions staged.

    Belarus' seems the most likely.

    When you said Serbia I thought you meant the break up of Yugoslavia, and I was thinking "peaceful, democratic!?!?" Then I remembered the one in 2000 when they got rid of Slosba.

    Hmmm, US can do whatever they want but we (Serbs) are always ready to die for Russia. It seems that Ukraine was american provocatoin on Russia. Serbia wasn't like that. Yes, we replaced milosevic and USA played its part, but we still (and perhaps always) say: Mother Russia. Thay couldn't change that.

    You know that Russians (Slavic part at least) consider that Serbs are our brothers.
    What you think is what you get!

    Well I know...and that is the reason I sad that. Even if Russians don't consider Serbs as brother nation, Serbs will always be on the side of Russia no mather what. We care about the history relatinship with Russia and help that Russia gave to Serbia, so we will be gratefull FOREVER.

    Well, the question is answered: elections in Belorussia are over. Final results:

    Alexander Lukashenko: 83%
    Alexander Milinkevich: 6,1%
    Segrey Gaidukevich: 3,5%
    Alexander Kozulin: 2,2%

    so, the people of Belorussia clearly made their choice. Your comments?

    I believe there was a certain amount of fraud in the election, but even without it I still think Lukashenko would have won with a large majority.

    My friend was an election observer, so I'm interested in his views when I get them.

    When speaking of so-called "color revolutions" Western press forgets that Russia has already had "revolution" in 1991. Consequences of this "revolution" are still percieved in Russia and, I dare say, most of people don't want another "revolution" of that kind.

    And even before, in 1917 -- color was red. Remember?
