Sanctions on Russia

April 2, 2015

The drop in the world price of oil is making life difficult for oil producing countries. The reason for the price drop, we are told, is because OPEC could not agree to cut production in order to keep prices from falling.
Those of us who surf the alternate press will know there is another explanation for this. The mainstream media ether doesn’t know about it or doesn’t want us to know.
A report titled, “The Secret Stupid Saudi-US Deal/on Syria” reveals a plan for Saudi Arabia to reduce the price of oil with the goal of effecting regime changes in Russia, Iran and Syria.
To complement this plan, a group of mostly NATO countries have imposed sanctions on Russia. The ostensible reason for this is because of Russia annexing Crimea but suspicious minds believe it is just another way to hasten the ruin of the Russian economy.
Now Vladimir Putin has signed a military doctrine that names NATO as Russia’s top external threat.
Here is a question for all of us who live in these NATO countries, “How has ruining the economies of other countries worked for us so far”? It has worked out just ducky in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya hasn’t it? If we like what we have done to those four countries, we are going to love what we are doing to Russia.
If this weren’t so serious it would be funny. But then there isn’t much funny about a nuclear war is there?

Victims of Communism Memorial

April 2, 2015

The Harper government is promoting a 5,000-square-metre Memorial dedicated to the Victims of Communism. The cost (estimated to be as high as twelve million dollars) will come mostly from taxpayers.
To be fair this should be none-partisan and include a memorial to victims of Anti-Communism.
To this end the Second World War would get top billing as an example of the evils of Anti-Communism.
The Treaty of Versailles (which limited Germany’s military assets) was wilfully breached with the tacit understanding that Hitler would go east and rid the world of the Godless Communists in the Soviet Union.
Five years and 60 million deaths later, it was these Godless Communists that kept the rest of Europe from having to learn how to speak German.
This is well documented in a book titled, “In Our Time: The Chamberlain-Hitler Collusion.” Let that put Chamberlain’s “appeasement” to rest.
For the rest of the Twentieth Century, the west (mostly NATO countries) made a career out of making the world safe for dictatorships. In the name of Ant-Communism, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia (2.5 million more deaths) and 52 other countries had their sovereignty grievously violated.
This too is well documented in William Blum’s book, “Killing Hope-U.S. and CIA Interventions since World War II”
The Hypocrisy of Harper’s half truths should not go unchallenged.
