“Information Resistance”

Brothers and sisters,

Here’s the Summary for April 10, 2014 (for the summary from previous day, please see the Summary for April 9).

The bad news:

1. Moscow’s scenario to split Ukraine has become more sluggish, but no less exhausting. The terrorism problems in Donetsk and Luhansk have not been solved yet. Pro-Russian “Colorado beetles” [referring to orange and black St. George’s ribbons] keep lifting their heads up in the south [of Ukraine] – they have become active in Odesa after Mykolayiv. The Russian troops continue to hang around our border.

This dismal circus clearly intends to hold out until the Presidential elections, and will try to disrupt them. And if the successes of the collaborationists are felt before the elections, then the Kremlin could still attempt to send its troops into Ukraine – we do not discount this possibility, not even a little bit.

We are all rather tired of all this. Judging from the latest statements by the Ukrainian authorities – they have had enough, too. They are promising to fundamentally resolve the issue once and for all, if necessary – with the use of force. Let’s hope that political resolve and determination will give positive results in the near future. Although it goes without saying, nobody needs bloodshed.

2. Putin said why he was forced to ensure the annexation of Crimea. As in, “preliminary data from sociological polls of local residents” became the reference point for Russia’s actions.

I don’t know if Putin really is an idiot or if he is just pretending. I don’t have the appropriate medical education to diagnose him. But what this figure says, is alarming for his mental health.

If the world is to be built using this logic, if wars and territorial occupations are based on some obscure and widely unknown “survey data,” then the history of civilization will end much sooner than we would like.

I really hope that the world will seek justice against this madman with a nuclear club.

The good news:

1. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe [PACE] has withdrawn Russia’s voting rights at PACE until the end of the year. The Kremlin’s entire propaganda and diplomatic machine (in Russia these are the same) has become stalled on European expanses, when it comes to Ukraine. The homegrown Goebbels ideologists of Russism have been silenced in Europe. And rightly so.

At the same time, the head of “Freedom House” David Kramer has announced today that there are no manifestations of extremism and radicalism in Ukraine, vehemently broadcast by Moscow. In turn, the OSCE does not confirm the infringement of rights of the Russian-speaking Ukrainians.

Putin’s veil of lies is withering away. And the whole world sees the face of Vladimir Vladimirovich, twisted with anger. Accordingly, the support for Ukraine is growing. And rightly so.

2. NATO is building up its naval group in the Black Sea. Tomorrow, Dupuy de Lome, the large reconnaissance ship, will join American destroyer USS Donald Cook already deployed there, and on April 14, the French Navy destroyer Duplex will enter the Black Sea.

NATO stated that it would not engage in military actions supporting Ukraine. Russia has nothing to fear. But when there are serious guys with readily drawn weapons strolling the shore of territories newly chopped off by the aggressor, it’s unnerving. The occupier’s dream becomes akin to an alcoholic’s sleep – anxious and brief.

3. The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine predicts the onset of a visa-free regime with the EU beginning January 1, 2015.

Honestly, I could care less about the visa-free regime with the EU, Uruguay, or Burundi. For the past 20 years, I have been in Europe (the EU) only once, on a KFOR official trip to Kosovo. But for many of our fellow countrymen, a visa-free regime is a necessity.

I also perfectly understand that the visa-free regime – this is what we, ordinary Ukrainians, can physically feel with our hands in relations with the EU. Again, it’s practical evidence of confidence and friendliness toward us. That is a serious act of support, which is so important to us these days.

4. The “Hard truth,” the Ukrainian spontaneous flash mob, is still on. In Odesa, activists pelted Presidential candidate Serhiy Tihipko with eggs, while shouting “Putin’s whore!”

Generally, [such behavior] is all wrong. We are civilized enough to express our likes and dislikes on election day, with ballot in hand.

But then I would say – the rating is on the wall. More specifically, on the face. There’s a folk infographic for you.

    Of course, Putin is 1/2 right when he thinks he’s a wit, such as the time he sang: “On Blueberry Hill” in English a few years ago in his “Ice Palace”; but he’s is so accustomed to his own 1/2 truths that he forgets which part is true and which is pure propaganda. But then if we consider that Russia’s Foreign Minister declared on 1st April 2014 (April Fool’s Day!) that Russia is STRICTLY observing the 1994 Budapest Memorandum with Ukraine, all logic flies out of the window! Now, as Putin declares that on Victory Day (09th May 2014), the Crimea will be set free (to be victorious under the autonomy of the Russian Federation), we cannot but reflect upon George Orwell’s concept of Double-think (in his anti-Soviet futuristic novel, ‘1984’) in which he declared that if Russia would one day take over the world, it would declare, slavery to be “Freedom!” and the defeat or subjugation of a nation to be “Victory” for that nation! Now, 30 years after the predicted year of double-think, we see this ex-KGB thug rise to power through gangster tactics (not unlike that of Hitler) in which he silenced any voice of opposition. This ‘news blackout’ exists throughout the Crimea and soon even Russian news reporters in the Crimea who do not report the news STRICTLY in conformity to the letter of the law that Putin’s dreaded Dictatorial Rules dictate, will be beaten, tortured, imprisoned, or killed (or all of the above!)! Welcome to the world of Putin, the crack-pot, the psychopath. [His techniques and behaviors are amazingly similar to that of Ted Bundy, the serial killer who killed 36 women beating them and clubbing them to death much as Putin has had 2 dozen or more news reporters done away with?! Even more so, Ted Bundy was a man of above-average intelligence, a law student, who managed to outsmart the law enforcement officers in several US States before his teeth marks on a 12-year old girl (his last victim) were proven to match his dental work! To watch Ted Bundy in his last interview hours before his death sentence was carried out, so calm, so logical, yet so politely puzzled as to why he did what he did, so well-mannered, so careful to use the best possible language, to correct himself in his own description of events, as he wished to respect the intelligence of his audience, can give one goose-bumps. Especially, as we now compare Putin to Bundy, the mental health and off-the-wall logic is uncannily identical?! Bundy did not see that what he was doing (murdering these young beautiful college girls) was really something he should not be doing–just as Putin cannot seem to see that unleashing his mad-dog sadistic hoodlums in the Crimea and now in South-Eastern Ukraine, is contrary to civil and decent behavior, but even more so–it is indicative of a mind diseased beyond repair, of a mind that is phobic and gone wild like that of an animal consumed by rabies. There appears to be no lasting solution to Putin except assassination, quite possibly by his own body-guards (as happened to Colonel Kaddafi of Libya recently)]. As Putin is in control of Russia’s nuclear arsenal, he is too dangerous to be trusted with this much power (now that it is evident he is not only “in another world” as German Chancellor Merkel rightly perceived!) but that he is mentally unstable and seriously unhealthy. If Putin is permitted to live (for whatever politically expedient excuse?!), it is 100% certain that he will invade Ukrainek and that there will be a major blood-bath. This war of nerves that Putin now plays in East Europe is not simply a game to him: it is his way of saying to the rest of the world: “Please stop me! I cannot stop myself, I am on the back of a tiger and I cannot get off!” much as a serial murderer is known to sub-consciously leave clues at a murder scene so that he can eventually be caught and stopped. Putin, I believe, does not wish to unleash full-scale war in Ukraine and thereafter throughout Eastern Europe, but he will if he sees that militarily it is possible for Russia to do so. All bullies and thugs think this way: they are cowards when faced with a bigger opponent, but when children, or helpless adults are placed in their path, they behave precisely as Ted Bundy, and they will go as far as we allow them to release their pent-up madness, even to commit the kind of murders we are now seeing in the Crimea and elsewhere throughout Ukraine–as previews of more to come! Orwell’s literary masterpiece ‘1984’ unfortunately has now become a living reality in Putin, in his putrid propaganda machine (to include: RT media, AM TV media, and a host of other affiliates), as well as in the minds of the pro-Russian public which –as George Orwell successfully predicted in 1948–would blindly believe whatever they are told by their Government, however absurd or however illogical! So, how does this story end?! Well, if Putin’s restrictive Russian Regime is allowed to have it’s way in a world of double-speak, double-cross, and double-think, Orwell concludes his forecast with these chilling words: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on the human face–forever. And remember that it is forever!.”.
