Ominous Sign of Things to Come

Jump to last reply

With Russia seemingly sliding backwards into autocracy akin to a dictatorship, there was a recent ominous sign from Belarus.

Lukashenko dedicated a statue and memorial complex to Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the infamous Cheka under Lenin. In his dedication speech, Lukashenko described Dzerzhinsky as a great man.

I could not help but remember that Dzershinsky's statue in Moscow was one of the first to be pulled down in 1991. As I recall the mob got Beria's edifice first, but whose counting?

At any rate, some of you who have been recently to Belarus might comment on conditions there. Of course, a tourist might be shielded from the corruption and
atrocities of a totalitarian government in an effort to put a positive spin on outward apperances.

Having been directly involved in the Cold War, reports like that ring my internal warning bells.

It is more than coincidence that the Belarus secret police is called the KGB. There are definite signs that ex KGB officer Putin and Lukashenko are forming an alliance to the extent that Belarus stands in relationship to Russia as Britain stands to the US.

And those guys still have missiles and nuclear warheads!

Any comments?
