And The Beat Of Propaganda (No To Mention Profound Ignorance) Goes On And On And On.....

The prevailing opinion among many seems to be that while Obama maybe the bumbling reincarnation of Neville Chamberlain, they refuse to even consider that Vladimir Putin maybe the reincarnate evil combination of Hitler and Stalin.  Nevermind that Putin's tactics of chewing  of pieces of neighboring states (South Ossetia, Crimea) and incarcerating or disappearing those who would dare call him what he is (Pussy Riot) is Hitleresque and his tactic of charterizing his targets as "fascists" or agents of foreign espionage operations is straight out of Stalin's NKVD play book.  Before jumping to any conclusions or judgements we should all endeavor to understand the formative history of the current situation. Timothy Snyder's "Blood lands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin" is an excellent starting place.

Neither should we forget that there was never any accounting for the monstrous crimes of Soviet Russia, nor any reason that its victims should be forgiving.
I am not excusing the crimes of our current batch of politicians or their Wall Street puppet masters.  I'm just saying that their crimes and historical ignorance does not excuse or negate history.

I am not now, nor will I ever be one of those naive and or poorly educated fools who tries to cram all of history into the box of some vast Jewish conspiricy.  Whatever the ethnic origins of the masters of the Russian Revolution, as they claimed to be intellectually driven, their first and formost loyalty was to the communist party and Marxist ideology.  As Marxism rejected all religion, making the claim that they were Zionist conspiritors nearly 100 years after the fact is patently absurd.

In fact there were as nearly as many of the party leadership that were ethnic Poles as there were ethnic Jews.  This was especially true in the upper echelons of the NKVD (the predecessor of the KGB).  None of their party loyalty kept Stalin and his henchmen from executiog hundreds of thousands for the "crime" of being Poles or Jewish Poles claimed to be part of the non-existant "Polish Military Organization" during the Great Terror of the late '30s.  It was under Stalin's policy of "socialism in a single state" that the Soviet Union became "Russified" rather than internationalist as they outwardly claimed.

As I have said know the history before jumping to conclusions.  Maskirovka didn't magically dissapear with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
