Ukraine Today, Remember S. Ossetia 2008?
By Xavier Lerma
Recent events in the Ukraine made me remember the events in South Ossetia. Especially, how the US and the West blamed Russia for invading Georgia. A huge information war was waged against Russia. It happened again in 2012 during the Russian Presidential elections and again regarding the Ukraine today. Information war is another way of saying they lied to the American people just to establish another puppet government. The US blames Russia for everything going bad in the world again. Russia tries to put out another fire the US started just as it did in Georgia.
Senator John McCain had been in Georgia then last year in Syria and then in the Ukraine. Bad luck just follows that guy. Senator John McCain is typical of those who stereotype Putin when he said, "I looked into Mr. Putin's eyes and I saw three things - a K and a G and a B". McCain is insinuating that Putin, a former KGB agent, is an old hard line communist like the NKVD was under Stalin. McCain has read Alexander Solzhenitsyn and even did an article about him. However, he really knows nothing about Russia, Solzhenitsyn and Putin otherwise he would know why Solzhenitsyn would vehemently disagree with his KGB statement.
In the Summer of 2008, Alexander Solzhenitsyn's last interview was with Christian Neef and Matthias Schepp. He said, "Putin inherited a ransacked and bewildered country, with a poor and demoralized people. And he started to do what was possible - a slow and gradual restoration. These efforts were not noticed, nor appreciated, immediately." He later praises Putin who was in the KGB. In an interview with German news magazine Der Spiegel he says, "Vladimir Putin - yes, he was an officer of the special services, but he was not a KGB investigator, nor was he the head of a camp in the gulag". Putin was in foreign intelligence in Germany and was later known to follow the advice of Solzhenitsyn regarding the restoration of Russia.
It is necessary to note that McCain like Obama, received money from George Soros. McCain is known as one of the most liberal Republicans. I, for one, cannot trust anyone who deals with Soros. Atheist Soros hates and fears Putin. When Soros sees Putin he sees his own end. Long ago I had heard that Soros' Nazi collaborating hand was in Georgia but I had no confirmation until later. Andrew Bolt from the Australia's Herald Sun wrote, "of course, Australia is only one of 50 countries in which Soros works. And his meddling here is nothing given what he's just done in Georgia..He then backed Georgia's former
justice minister, Mikhail Saakashvili"
Western media hides the truth
The western media constantly portrays Russia as the same old Soviet Union. I understand their mistrust but they should learn at least to report the facts. When Soros' Georgia attacked innocent civilians the same McCain said, 'we are all Georgians'. Remember it was the American media who told us on August 2008 that Russia was invading S.Ossetia and Georgia while insisting Russia was at fault and should be stopped. Condoleeza Rice kept referring to Russia as though it was the Soviet Union. AP news reported she said that the NATO alliance would "punish Russia". CNN quoted Bush telling Russia, "We strongly condemn bombing outside of South Ossetia". Reuters reported that Obama said, "Georgia's territorial integrity must be respected". Obama says the same today about the Ukraine.
The American media was still eagerly blaming Russia for starting the war even when the young S.Ossetian girl Amanda Kokoeva went on Fox News and thanked the Russians for helping. The truth was unveiled on November 2008 when Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili admitted he did start the war. Oops! Did the American media or politicians such as Senator Obama, President Bush, Condoleeza Rice and McCain admit their mistake in condemning Russia? Did they acknowledge the thousands killed by Saakashvili? No, of course not. Admitting a mistake would lower credibility and network ratings. "We did start military action..." - Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.
Patrick J. Buchanan
Buchanan was against globalism back then as he is now. Even he said that Georgia started the war in 2008. In his article, "Blowback from Bear Baiting" he wrote: "Georgia started this fight - Russia finished it. People who start wars don't get to decide how and when they end."
Why didn't America follow Reagan's path and keep her promises? Russia was like the South after Lincoln was shot. Without a strong leader, Russia was open to attack by the "New World Order". Buchanan further wrote: "When Moscow pulled the Red Army out of Europe, closed its bases in Cuba, dissolved the evil empire, let the Soviet Union break up into 15 states, and sought friendship and alliance with the United States, what did we do? American carpetbaggers colluded with Muscovite Scalawags to loot the Russian nation. Breaking a pledge to Mikhail Gorbachev, we moved our military alliance into Eastern Europe, then onto Russia's doorstep. Six Warsaw Pact nations and three former republics of the Soviet Union are now NATO members. Bush, Cheney and McCain have pushed to bring Ukraine and Georgia into NATO. This would require the United States to go to war with Russia over Stalin's birthplace and who has sovereignty over the Crimean Peninsula and Sebastopol, traditional home of Russia's Black Sea fleet.
When did these become U.S. vital interests, justifying war with Russia?
The United States unilaterally abrogated the Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty because our technology was superior, then planned to site anti-missile defenses in Poland and the Czech Republic to defend against Iranian missiles, though Iran has no ICBMs and no atomic bombs. A Russian counter-offer to have us together put an anti-missile system in Azerbaijan was rejected out of hand. We built a Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline from Azerbaijan through Georgia to Turkey to cut Russia out. Then we helped dump over regimes friendly to Moscow with democratic "revolutions" in Ukraine and Georgia, and tried to repeat it in Belarus."
Is Buchanan the only brave soul willing to speak out in America? Nazi Germany had more defying the Führer. The Ukrainian mess is another revolution started by the US. Instead of Bush, Cheney and McCain it's Obama, Kerry, Nuland and McCain. Let's call it what it is. The US overthrows governments without mass protest from its citizens. It is a shame that a government formed under God to escape tyranny from King George is now tyrannical in nature. The US is strangling the whole earth and only Russia is mighty enough to stop it. Russia can and it will but only near her borders. In the future, the world will cry for Putin to free them just as the Ukraine cries for help.
