21 February 2012. The Russian Take on Syria

Syrian Christian girls with Easter eggs… the Islamist opposition has made it clear that they want to murder Alawis and boot out Christians. Why are the USA and its Western allies all supporting them? I find that vile hypocrisy of the most foul and odious sort.


On Tuesday, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MID) spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich said that Russia wouldn’t participate in a meeting of the so-called Friends of Syria Group in Tunisia. Last week, during an emergency meeting of the Arab League Council held at the Foreign Minister-level, Tunisia initiated the first international conference Friends of Syria. Earlier, the Arabic newspaper Al Sharq Al Awsat, citing a statement by Tunisian Foreign Minister Rafik Abdesselam, reported that Russia would participate in the event. Lukashevich said, “Officially, we weren’t informed who’d take part in the conference or what the agenda would be. Most importantly, it’s unclear what the actual goal of this initiative is”. He said that there was some information that several opposition groups received invitations to the Tunisia meeting, but the Syrian government didn’t, saying, “Serious questions arose about the final document of the meeting. According to some sources, some countries would simply rubber-stamp a document that’s already in the process of being written, without any knowledge of its origins. Taking into account all these circumstances, we consider that it isn’t possible for us to participate in the meeting”.

Lukashevich said that, according to the report, “it seems that we’re talking about slapping together some kind of international coalition as was the case in organising the Libya Contact Group in order to support one side against the other in an internal conflict”. In its statement, the MID said, “Russia thinks that all members of the world community should act as friends of all Syrian people and not only a portion of them. We suggest that members of the Security Council ask the UN Secretary General to send his special envoy to Syria to negotiate with the government and all other parties to ensure the safe delivery of humanitarian goods”.


Patrick Seale, a leading British writer on the Middle East and the author of several books about Syria and the Arab world, shared his opinion on Russia’s role in the Middle East on the sidelines of an international conference, entitled Transformation in the Arab World and Russia’s Interests, held 17-18 February in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi.

21 February 2012. A Reflection on the Only Rouge Nation in the World… The Centre of the “Axis of Evil”…


I shall only cite one instance, it’ll stand for all the enormities committed by the USA over the last twenty years. The Americans bombed Belgrade on Orthodox Easter, when all the world asked them not to do it. There was no operational necessity for the air strikes… in short, the USA engaged in terror bombing on the holiest day in the Christian calendar. Reflect well on this… Rick Santorum would repeat this enormity… and not be bothered in the least by it. Also ponder this… Franklin Graham questioned the religious faith of President Obama publicly and without provocation… that shamed his father, no doubt. That’s what American religion amounts to amongst the rightwing… scary, isn’t it?

I hope that no war ever erupts between the USA and Russia. Americans will have to mend their greedy and grasping ways… but shall they? God willing…


21 February 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. West is West; East is East

West is West; East is East

Sergei Yolkin



In the original Russian, the American figure says “shit” in English… what Russians would REALLY say is FAR less printable. It’d be a real Mat‘ fest, let me tell you!


American geologists proposed a new theory for the fusion in the distant future of North America and Asia into a single supercontinent, Amasia. According to the calculations of researchers, published in the journal Nature, they’ll become a single entity in the polar regions in about a half a billion years.

21 February 2012. Gleanings From My Mailbag…


Editor’s Foreword:

I’m in plain type; my interlocutors are in italics.



I wasn’t “approving”… I found it “interesting”… quite another thing, wot? I’m old enough to have NO “enthusiasms” for anyone or anything. So are you… we’re not the ELDERS, but we’re “on deck”… we’re next. We need to be level-headed for the young’uns (who WILL get carried away… but that’s normal… we did, didn’t we?).


My conclusion is that some of these WASP converts (usually from well-moneyed backgrounds in Episcopalianism) just want the Church for themselves, for their ego-trip, without any nasty foreigners.


Have you seen this? Oliver Herbel, the OCA convert priest and “historian”, who’s the darling of the OCA ex-Protestant crowd, says that St Peter the Aleut didn’t exist, and that he was a myth! How completely and totally offensive… these people are out of control and they need to be stopped. Funny, though, his Frontier Orthodoxy blog is password protected, you have to be a “member” to read his rancid crap. 

It’s time for the Alaska Native Orthodox to contact the Russians… the Anglos won’t help them… they’re thieving liars and grasping rapers of nature. Herbel’s blog being “private” doesn’t surprise me… we’re not “good enough” for his wisdom. Then again, oca.org won’t tell us about Velencia’s suspension or the whereabouts of Dickie Wood. We’re not supposed to know! It’s time for the Alaska Native elders to quietly confer, go off to Vladivostok, and ask for canonical protection from the Mother Church. Otherwise, there’ll be no Church in 20 years time.
