Belarus: The Opposition's Failure

TOL's Belarus has some harsh words for the Belarusian opposition: “The opposition party leaders will make fools of us for as long as we allow it. All of them should have resigned back in 2001.

With the current opposition leadership, all we can hope for is a palace coup and the transformation of the dictatorship into a Putin/Kuchma type of authoritarianism with a ‘human face’.”
