Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzeziński: Death of an Anti-Russian Terrorist

________________________

Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzeziński is dead at the age of 89. The former US National Security Advisor put the feuds of his homeland above the interests of his adopted USA. Richard Nixon had more foreign policy achievements that just about any modern American President. However, Nixon’s scandal-plagued White House generally overshadowed these achievements. Amongst his most important achievements was engaging in détente with the USSR. Nixon’s de-escalation of tensions with Moscow ultimately led to the signing of the Helsinki Accords in 1975, wherein America and its allies and non-aligned states of Europe agreed to respect the borders and sovereignty of existing states, including that of the USSR and her allies. The Helsinki Accords affirmed renouncing violence as a means of settling disputes and forced signatories to respect the right of self-determination among peoples. This was a rare moment; the USA admitted that it couldn’t win the Cold War and that engagement and peaceful dialogue were preferable to threats against the Soviet superpower.

In 1976, Jimmy Carter became the President of the United States after Nixon’s former Vice-President Gerald Ford failed to win over an America hungry for change on the domestic front. While many remember Jimmy Carter as a man of peace, his Presidency was anything but peaceful. The reason for this was the power behind the throne, Carter’s National Security Advisor, Brzeziński. The Polish-born Brzeziński put the historic blood-feud of his mother country ahead of American interests. He openly opposed Nixon and Ford’s policy of détente and orchestrated the use of American power to arm and fund all those who sought to undermine the USSR.

This became most apparent when he decided to use the USA’s resources to fund, arm, and train the Mujahideen in Afghanistan. Among the fighters Brzeziński’s policy helped to arm was Osama bin Laden, the founder of the Salafist terrorist group al-Qaeda. The USA later blamed that group for orchestrating and executing the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the USA. Brzeziński was happy to ally with blood-soaked jihadists to topple the secular modern government of Afghanistan, for the simple reason that it was a Soviet ally. Brzeziński’s jihadists took over the country in the 1990s; they famously executed and then mutilated the corpse of Afghanistan’s pro-Soviet President Dr Mohammad Najibullah in 1996. Many blame the Brzeziński-authored policies in Afghanistan for unleashing the plague of jihadist terrorism throughout the wider world.

Brzeziński’s formal time in the White House was only for Jimmy Carter’s single term, but many of his policies lived on long after his formal period in power. Throughout the rest of his life, Brzeziński continued to vocally advocate policies designed to cripple Russia, including NATO’s expansion into Eastern Europe. He was a strong supporter of the 2014 coup against the legitimate Ukrainian government and more recently said that the Russian Federation would break up. Furthermore, he said that the USA must help those wanting to break it up, irrespective of who they are. He continued to advocate sanctions against Russia until his dying day, in spite of the fact that the sanctions ended up hurting his native Poland more than the Russian Federation he sought to destroy.

Brzeziński was a deeply violent and hateful man. He was also dishonest; he told the last Shah of Iran that the USA would give him full backing, knowing well that there was division in the White House on the issue. He was a man who brought ancient hatreds, hatreds which long pre-dated the USA’s existence, into the heart of American policy making. At the age of 89, Brzeziński is dead. Even if he lived another hundred years, he’d never see his dream, the death of Russia. Russia remains alive and well, and in this sense, perhaps, he died knowing that his entire reason for being was a failure.

28 May 2017. On Sergei Stagorodsky and “Sergianism”

________________________

You hear rightwing elements excoriating Patriarch Sergei Stagorodsky and who blather about “Sergianism“. Arzamas (his hometown) put up a memorial to him. He was in prison for Christ’s sake three times. Bear in mind what “Sergianism” is… selling-out the Church to political elements, often, to factions more inimical to Christianity than Communism ever was. Actually, “Sergianism” was mostly a trend amongst rightwing anti-communist émigrés and you find it amongst present-day konvertsy, who hobnob with the slimiest rightwing fascists imaginable (on the grounds of being “pro-life!” What hypocrisy!). Interesting… that what the right accused Sergei of, they were guilty of themselves! They sold out Christ for a mess of pottage from anti-Church/anti-Rodina elements… they still do!

Putin on Victory Day: “There is No Force, and There’ll Be No Force, That Could Conquer Our People”

________________________

There is no force, and there’ll be no force, that could conquer our people. We couldn’t prevent this horrible tragedy, firstly, due to connivance at the criminal ideology of racial supremacy, due to the disunity amongst the world’s leading countries, which allowed the Nazis to appropriate the right to decide the destiny of other peoples, to unleash the cruelest and bloodiest war, and to enslave and make almost all European countries serve their deadly goals. We feel a deep and strong kinship with this generation of heroes and victors. Moreover, I’ll tell them the following… you’ll never feel ashamed of us! The Russian soldier today, like in all the times, shows courage and heroism, and is ready for any podvig*, for any sacrifice, for the sake of his Motherland and his people.

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

The lessons of the past war urge us to be vigilant and the Russian Armed Forces are capable of repelling any potential aggression, but today life itself requires increasing our defence potential. However, we need the entire international community to come together to fight terrorism, extremism, neo-Nazism, and other threats effectively. We’re open for such coöperation. Russia will always be on the side of those in the world who choose the road of fair partnership, who reject war as being alien to the very essence of life and human nature. The further the events of the Great Patriotic War recede into history, the higher our responsibility before future generations. We must pass stability and peace on the planet to them; pass on the harsh and heroic truth about the Patriotic War and the Great Victory’s spirit and essence, so that our descendants love Russia fervently as well. People should keep in their memory the generation that selflessly fought for the Motherland and defended its freedom and independence with honour.
