Uncle Iggy’s Army

00 Igor Strelkov 01. 14.06.14

______________________________

They criticise Donetsk People’s Republic Defence Minister I I Strelkov… and that criticism is quite vehement. Pro-junta Ukrainians curse him, calling him “Putin’s damned KGB-man”, “GRU spook”, “murderer”, and “terrorist”. In Moscow, highbrow critics shake their heads, regretting that a “romantic” and “re-enactor” leads the Donbass opolchenie. Firstly, you should attend to the first and second accusations. They’re outright lies. They lie about Strelkov having been in the KGB or the GRU, not to even mention him being a “murderer” and “terrorist”. Igor never served in the KGB and GRU… he’s a retired counterintelligence officer. Sorry, you cunning and wise Moscow know-alls, Strelkov wasn’t a gaybist*. Apparently, they thought that he was a paunchy cussing red-faced “empty suit” in a general’s uniform with fancy braid. Somehow, they don’t realise that years of stern service and participation in at least four recent armed conflicts are behind the polite “romantic/re-enactor” façade. However, one should really pay attention to that!

*gaybist: KGB man, from “GB” (State Security, in Russian)

As a result, we see an amazing situation… Colonel Strelkov and several companies of volunteers opposed the whole Ukrainian Army for over a month. Not even the “exploits” of foreign military advisers and foreign mercenaries from private military companies could inspire [the government forces]. This podvig is equal to the defence of the Brest Fortress, but nobody cares! There are hundreds of films about the Brest Fortress, with more to come. Pitiful snotty fools… the audience weeps over those ancient events, about which they plainly know nothing. Today, there are different history books in the schools, and some of them don’t have a single word about the heroic defenders of the fortress. History repeats itself. In the USSR, the curriculum edited out the major victories of the tsarist army, today, they gloss over the podvig of the Soviet people, saying instead that it was due to the Russian soldier.

We haven’t yet started to speak of Slavyansk. We haven’t forgotten how those gents Pozner and Svanidze shed crocodile tears about the Soviet casualties in Afghanistan, not noticing obvious victories, outstanding exemplars of military science and military operations. We haven’t forgotten how, literally, the redhead who read the news on Ekho Moskvy was in almost orgasmic delight reporting the success of the “gallant Mujahedeen” in the North Caucasus. This “Kahal*” claimed that the Russian soldiers were their own worst enemies! “Well, guys, you don’t fight, you only guzzle vodka!” They did it so sincerely and convincingly. So much so that many still believe it, so, they follow rules imposed from abroad. Some journalists did stories about “Russian mercenaries” in Syria; even in far-off Syria, these “mercenaries” managed to “guzzle vodka”. Due to their preconceptions, these journalists didn’t believe that the “mercenaries” waged a successful campaign in Syria; instead, they believed the notorious thugs and bandits that the international community politely refers to somehow as “the opposition”. That is, according to world media… even some Russians… rude drunken mercenaries from Russia fight the freedom-loving democratic opposition.

*Kahal: literally, a Jewish council in 17/18th century Poland and in the Russian Empire until 1893; figuratively, a disorderly meeting, a fractious collection of people… the second meaning is what applies here.

It turned out that these “drunken mercenaries” protected Slavyansk brilliantly, but the “advanced” part of the world, and even some in the Russian media, are uncomfortable with it and somehow ashamed to talk about it. There’s no shortage of stories about these people! For these folks, Uncle Iggy’s Army embarrasses the global political system. In their view, it’s an awkward and strange armed formation, which lives according to the military ethos of the USSR in the VOV. It severely punishes its own looters, but it provides medical aid to wounded enemies and when it disarms hostile soldiers, it releases them “in peace” and says, “Go, and sin no more!”

Our beautiful redhead at Ekho Moskvy and the “masters of Russian journalism” are stubbornly silent about the failures of the Ukrainian military, about the downed planes and helicopters, about the burnt armoured vehicles, and about those junta soldiers who voluntarily rally to the opolchenie. They suffer physically; they can’t believe that some “Orthodox Chekist*” can “beat up” army units trained by “valiant” instructors from Western PMCs. Oh, the PMC staff, as they say, fussed and fumed. Now, don’t accuse me of “super-patriotism”. I’m hip to things, I know better than most that the Donbass opolchenie doesn’t always do the right thing. They have trouble with their old “Grandmas”, let alone the enemy army. They have losses; they know that all of them could die there. Indeed, there may be traitors amongst them.

*Chekist: Security officer, from “Cheka”, the first Soviet security organ… figuratively, a term of contempt

The always level-headed Colonel Strelkov and his faithful comrades see light at the end of the tunnel of their “Mission Impossible”. They’re nothing like the stupid “soldiers of fortune” with their tattered Playboy magazines in their backpacks, who greedily flash the icon of the “Almighty Dollar”. They don’t pose with rubber dolls with bottles in hand; they don’t throw dollars at hot hookers in bars. Calmly, without hysterical hatred, they face their enemies, putting their trust in God; therefore, they unblinkingly look into the eyes of death. Uncle Iggy’s Army draws inspiration from such warriors as Generalissimo A V Suvorov and Admiral St Fyodor Ushakov, who weren’t like A E Serdyukov at all. They imitate the legendary defenders of the Osovets Fortress… what you didn’t learn in school nor see in movies like The 9th Company or the TV series Spetsnaz.

Uncle Iggy’s Army steadfastly and efficiently carries out its mission. Even if the world media and history textbooks ignore this “Siege of Azov” of our day, we’re sure that common folk will appreciate and long remember their podvig. The people implicitly recognise the truth; they won’t forget their heroes, they’ll do their best to support them. They’d do this without support from the “leading elements”, contrary to the machinations of those who want a World Government, which plans to destroy all that’s holy and glorious. They want to destroy everything that’s precious to Colonel Strelkov and to everyone fighting in “Uncle Iggy’s Loyal Army”.
