00 my heroes. poklonnaya gora. 27.07.14

______________________________

Спасибо вам… THANK YOU for crushing the fascist snakes (and their collaborationist running dogs)… THANK YOU for stopping the Nazi murderers… THANK YOU for giving us a peaceful world to grow up in.

THANK YOU… СПАСИБО ВАМ…

I can’t say it often enough or loud enough… if you know a World War II vet from any of the countries of the Anti-Hitler Coalition, honour them… they saved us from a long nasty fascist night. They’re our heroes… NOT Ronald Reagan… NOT Rush Limbaugh… NOT Clint Eastwood… NOT Bill O’Reilly… NOT Richard Cheney… NOT Paul Ryan… NOT Willard Romney… all of whom avoided combat service (some were gutless cowards who avoided military duty altogether).

Respect those who earned respect… as for the others… kiss my ass…

THANK YOU, GRANDPA, FOR THE VICTORY…

Now, that’s WORTHY of respect and honour…

Russia Plans to Erect Memorial to Cold War Soldiers in Moscow

00 Soviet soldier in Afganistan. 16.02.14

______________________________

On Tuesday, Frantz Klintsevich, deputy head of the RF Gosduma Defence Committee said that a memorial commemorating Soviet soldiers who died in conflicts around the world during the Cold War era will be built in Victory Park (Park Pobedy) in Moscow. The memorial will form an architectural ensemble around an existing monument honouring Soviet soldiers who died during the Soviet war in Afghanistan (1979-89). He said, “It’ll be a beautiful composition with sculptures and bas-reliefs depicting certain historical events”. Stone tablets with the names of about 10,000 Soviet soldiers who fell in hotspots all over the world will line the alley leading to the memorial. Klintsevich said that plans call for completing the monument by summer, noting, “We’ll start preliminary excavation in the near future, probably in March. We’ve already begun engraving the names on the memorial tablets”. According to official statistics, the USSR was in over 30 conflicts in some 29 countries; besides Afghanistan, Soviet troops fought in Angola (and here), Ethiopia, Yemen, and Nigeria. Some 15,000 Soviet troops died in Afghanistan alone, before the Soviet withdrawal in February 1989.

Editor’s Note:

America has no one to blame but themselves for the al-Qaeda militants. Because of the sick, all-absorbing, and twisted Russophobic hatred of Zbigniew Brzeziński, the USA aided the most feral Islamist elements in the Soviet-Afghan War. Zbig was the “godfather” of al-Qaeda… he thought that any anti-Russian group was good. Such evil elements helped to deform American élite opinion on the USSR (and, later, Russia). Should I also mention that Joe Biden‘s mentor was a pro-Ustaša Croat Catholic priest? You can see why the Orthosphere gets fucked by the American media, government, and One Percent. It’s our God-given duty to stand against this demonic shit. Thank God, I’m NOT alone…

1 December 2012. Here are Those Muslims That the Rightwingers are so Hot n’ Bothered About… Friday Prayers at the Mosque at the VOV Memorial on Poklonnaya Gora

00 Mosque Poklonnaya Gora Moscow. 01.12.12

______________________________

This is Friday Prayers at the mosque at the VOV Memorial on Poklonnaya Gora. The imam preaching used a loudspeaker system to reach all the congregants. He spoke about the commandments, “If you ask a Christian about the Decalogue, how many will be able to list them, and how one complies with them? It’s important to remember them all the time”. The imam went on to say that God commands us not to murder, rob, or commit adultery. That doesn’t sound very terroristic or subversive to me.

In case you forgot, the Decalogue is:

  1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee
  6. Thou shalt not murder
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery
  8. Thou shalt not steal
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Islam holds to the Decalogue as much as Christians and Jews do. To judge all Muslims by Islamists is wrong. It’d be like condemning Christianity for the excesses of wackos like Franklin Graham or Sarah Palin… real Christians don’t act like unhinged Evangelical sectarian fruitcakes. In like manner, mainstream Muslims don’t act like fire-breathing Islamist nut jobs. A little bit of good sense, alert observation, and common decency allow one to tell the plug-uglies without a scorecard… I think that most would agree with me on that one.

4 September 2012. VOR Presents… Cossacks on the Way to Paris

On 12 August, in honour of the 200th anniversary of the victory in the First Great Patriotic War of 1812, mounted Cossacks departed Moscow to ride to Paris. Their route shall follow the route of the Russian Army’s march in the years 1812-14 through six countries… Russia, Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, Germany, and France. The march is dedicated to the memory of all the Russian soldiers who fell in battle during the Patriotic War.

******

The mounted Cossack march from Moscow to Paris is a cultural/historical re-enactment event, lacking ulterior political or commercial motives, funded by private donations.

******

The group riding to Paris consists of 23 Don Cossacks… descendants of the soldiers who made a similar march some 200 years ago.

******

To complete the whole route from Moscow to Paris, the Cossacks shall ride horses of a special Don variety bred specifically for long journeys.

******

In the cities that are on the route to Paris, the Cossacks will present historical and cultural workshops, do re-enactments, and give concerts. Besides the mounted Cossack group, members of the Russian Army Aleksandrov Song and Dance Ensemble and the trick riding team of the Kremlin riding school are also coming along. Here, the Cossacks are paying their respects at the Poklonnaya Gora 2nd Great Patriotic War memorial before leaving Moscow.

******

The mounted Cossack march shall finish in Fontainebleau, where they’ll hold a special event to mark the 200th year anniversary.

******

A special charity auction will take place after the finish of the mounted march in Fontainebleau, at which the Don horses that passed the entire route from Moscow to Paris will be sold. All funds raised will go for the preservation of this unique Don horse breed.
