Beggars on the street of Romania: a sign of failed economic policy 

The conference has joined economical experts from Romania and European Union, economical supervisors and personalities of political, economical and academic life of Romania.

2009- 2012 –the first period of crisis.

The conference started with an evaluation of the impact of economic crisis in the last period: 2009-2012.

In 2009 the economic crisis has affected the vital areas of economic life: the collapse has started with construction industry and construction material factories and collapse continued by the real estate market shrinking. Others affected sectors where: insurance, banking and stock exchange and in all the financial sector was strongly shaken down. The consumer confidence has fallen sharply and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has being reduced with 10% in 2010 and 8% in 2011.

The decrease in Romanian economy has being so devastating that now we are below the 2000 level. Unfortunately the economic collapse of 2010-2012 has laid the foundation for a crisis without equivalent in Romanian history that will affect the country in 2013.

2011-2012: The period of economic earthquake.

2011 and 2012 will be remembered as the worst years of economic turmoil in Romania, had appreciated in one voice all the experts present at the gathering.

First of all the 2011 has being the year in which the Romanian economy had collected all the hard hits from all the economic collapse of the last years. The financial system has being especially hard hit and this had made the fragile Romanian economy to reach the breaking point. The inflation had resurfaced and the experts appreciate that a 10% percent yearly inflation is unavoidable.

The resurgence of inflation had put a dramatic pressure on population economy and had made any recovery unthinkable for the next 4-8 years.

The collapse in economic system, the internal and external investments had being reduced to minimum, the credit on internal market has being practically suspended and all this had provoke for 2012 an economic decrease of more than 15% of GDP or even 18% of GDP after others opinions. A factor not to be neglected in amplification of the crisis is the governmental incompetence that by increasing the taxes, legislative chaos and a deliberate politics of destroying the middle class investors in the favor of big companies all did nothing ells than to aggravate the economic crisis.

2013 – European economic crisis will impact hard on Romania.

The 2013 will be a decisive year to on how will be affected the Romanian economy by the European meltdown.

Until now the Romanian economy was hit hard by his own faults like: reduced productivity and competitiveness, chaos in the governmental policy, crippling inflation etc. In 2013 Romania will be affected by the decay in European economic activity.

Crisis hit Spain, Greece, and Ireland and slowing down economy of Germany, France and Great Britain, will impact negative on Romanian chances to get access to European funds and foreign investments.

Romanian economy and policy maker are not yet conceptual prepared to understand that Romanian EU membership had became a liability and a negative factor in the future of Romania, appreciated the representative of Foreign Export Company Association Mr. Marcel Alexandru.

The negative impact of European Union financial and confidence crisis will account for a 2-5% percent reduction in Romanian GDP this year.

 2013 will be without a doubt a period of a new catastrophic decline. It must be very clear, all economic experts underlined, that the present economic decline will last for at least a decade at European level, so all those opinions that declared that Romania will start a new economic growth before the next 10 years; either don’t know what they are saying, either is bluntly laying.

All the European statistics are speaking about the lost decade of Europe between 2010 and 2020 , term referring to the blocking of economic development at continental level and the frozen of present situation for a decade.

Those that are declaring that Romania will surpass the period of recovering of  France or Great Britain economy , are telling stories that are unbelievable , stated chief economist- Mihail Racaceanu. What is important is to succeed that we have in 2013 a decrease in real economy of less than 10% and in the interval between 2013 and 2018 to stop the decline and in 2020 to come back to pre-crisis level.

Homeless and hungry in Great Britain. How EU crisis will affect Romania ?

2013 budget- a budget of economic decline.

In 2013 the Romanian economy is coming to the fore not only with the negatives trends of the last years and a crippling inflation but also with a budget of austerity that will direct Romania to plunge into a new economic meltdown.

The 2013 budget is the first budget in the eight year period that is not approved prior to 1-th of January, a negative record that is impacting Romanian economic stability and is giving a sign of chaos in the government economic policy.

The budget expected deficit of 2, 4% percent of GDP it not offering any chance for a real economic recovery, massive investment projects are abandoned and the decline in the economy is estimated by independent economist around 8-10% percent of the GDP by the year’s end.

What is dramatic is the reduction in the direct investment in the economy, with less than 8 billion euro investment planned for this year the Romanian economy had to struggle for sustainability. Reduced foreign investment and dramatically shrinking internal private investment means that Romania will have now more that 10 billion euro (in an optimistic assessment) for investment programs. The country needs at least 20 billion per year to modernize the economy and to have a decent growth rate of 1-2% percent per year. He present day budget is not only of severe austerity but of severe contraction stated the economists present at the meeting.

Romanian economy recover postponed to 2050.

This assessment was a strong one, keeping in mind that the pre-crisis governmental statistic declared that in 2025 Romania will succeed in recuperating the gap and reach the level of industrial activity prior to 1989 Revolution.

This perspective is no longer feasible, a new perspective is appearing after the crisis and after the lost decade and a cumulative GDP decrease of more than 60% from 2007 economy level.

This economic recession will be hard to recuperate in the context of zero governmental involvement, the general economic climate of recession and finally the worst factor of all: the burden of external debt.

The resurgence of inflation will put a dramatic pressing on population economy and will make any recovery unthinkable for the next 1-2 years. The collapse in economic system, the internal and external investments will be reduced to minimum, the credit on internal market will be suspended and all this will provoke next year an economic decrease of more than 15% of GDP or even 18% of GDP after others opinions. A factor not to be neglected in amplification of the crisis in the governmental incompetence that by: increasing the taxes, legislative chaos and a deliberate politics of destroying the middle class investor in the favor of big companies all did nothing ells than to aggravate the economic crisis.

External debt risk can plunge Romania into financial meltdown.

The fear factor that will suffocate Romanian economy in the next period will be, after 2015, the foreign debt crisis.

The Emil Boc government has careless accepted more than 36 billion dollars credit and in total the private and state debt of Romania is reaching the unbelievable sum of 95 billion dollars, this only if the government will no longer accept new loans.

In 2012 the Mihai Razvan Ungureanu government succeeded in just a few months to reduce the National bank Reserves by 20 billion euro, an unprecedented squandering of public money in Romanian history.

Despite the writing on the wall, in all of cases like Greece, Spain and Ireland, Romania is accepting new loan from International Monetary Fund, loans that will not be invested in developing and modernizing the economy but in salaries and pensions. This consumer invested loans at extortionate interest rates will suffocate completely an ailing and failed economy as Romanian economy is.

Unemployment: with a rate of registered unemployment of more than 12% of the active population and with another 15% percent of the population already left out of the governmental unemployment aide, Romania tops many EU member countries with a real unemployment figure of more than 25% of the population. This figure must be put in perspective with more that 50% of the population below the poverty line and the full picture of the economic meltdown and social tragedy could be analyzed. Romania economy is in crises and no plans for a future development had not being adopted.

2013: The worsening of economic crisis.

The conclusion of the most important economic experts of Romania was clear: the crisis is not over by far, but has entered in a more difficult faze that will affect financial and banking system and economic fundament`s. The economic crisis will continue until 2017 at the earliest and a coming back cycle that will last until 2025. This decade will be without a doubt the lost decade of Romania but if the necessary measures are not rapidly taken to re-establish control on economic decline than we risk that Romania economy will not come back not even in 2025.

A NATION WAY TO PROSPERITY AND GLOBAL SIGNIFICANCE by PROFESSOR DR. ANTON CARAGEA, MA, FINS, EDA

We are living through difficult and boisterous time. A period of rapid changes in world economic and political system, a time of powerful crisis that is shaking the fundaments of national states and of national economies and is putting under strain the social protection and all the values of economic neo-liberalism.

professor dr.Anton Caragea at kazakhstan 2050

In this chaotic period, just a few nations are allowed the luxury of economic and political long time forecast and predictability: China and United States are creating and proposing to their people and foreign partners a long term vision of development and national statehood construction.
In a time of peril and un-certitude, when even a short time economic prediction is considered hazardous, just a few nations are having the will to act as beacons of lights and direction for their region.

In 17th of December 2012 Kazakhstan had enter to this select club of nations, conscientious of their role and position in the continental and world stage by presenting an ambitious, realistic and well carved plan for future of Kazakhstan until 2050.
By the voice of his President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan had created the prototype of a long term, healthy and stable construction model for the country, the region and the world.

Kazakhstan 2030: weathering the storm and creating a nation.

Kazakhstan it is not at the first step in a managed transition towards a stable and democratic society and a powerful economy.
In 1997 Kazakhstan had already carved the landmarks of his astonishing development by the presidential strategy- Kazakhstan 2030.
Far from being just a window dressing, the strategy for 2030 had proved to be a perfect way for charting Kazakhstan after the independence in the incertitude of nation building and construction of a viable economy.
The program had allowed Kazakhstan to tap into national reserves of oil and gas, to gush out of the enclave country status via the reconstructed Silk Road of energy and trade, to create a modern economy, not depending only on energy resources, to build a huge potential of national intelligence and to foster the economy of knowledge, the base for a XXI century reliable economy.

The long string of economic successes was accompanied in the internal sphere by political stability, based on democratic and open society values, the protection of national and religious minorities.
In the area of external policy, Kazakhstan had gather the powerful laurels of a successful reform project carried out during his Presidency of Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. An impressive success was also the unprecedented two year chairmanship of Organization of Islamic Conference that transformed Kazakhstan in a leader of dialogue between Islam and Western world.

The latest major diplomatic achievement of Kazakhstan was the proposal of building an area of security and cooperation in Europe and Asia, launched in September 2012, in Astana, at CICA Conference by President Nursultan Nazarbayev. This latest proposal makes Kazakhstan the promoter of an all-inclusive, intercontinental dialogue, that could transform the political landscape of XXI century.
In the end, Kazakhstan 2030 had proved to be not only a successful strategy for Kazakhstan, but also an example for all the countries of the world on how a nation by the sole fact of building himself, can become a regional and world significant player.

The main pillar of Kazakhstan 2050: understanding of XXI century.

In its world acclaimed book: The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the famous Lawrence of Arabia had mentioned that: the most important, but also decisive part of a plan is to be in line with the necessity of his time.
Kazakhstan 2050 starts by outlining the fundaments of the world in XXI century. A period of change, of accelerating history, of economic, political and ecological challenges, a world completely different from the world of XX century.
Instead of training to force the reality to enter in the realm of possibility, Kazakhstan 2050 is offering a realistic and practical assessment of the necessities of today world and of the available solutions.
Fallowing his long term tradition, Kazakhstan understands that creating a success story and offering solutions to the world is the best way to serve not only his interest, but also to add value to his place in the world.
Kazakhstan 2050: good news for people of Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan had become in the last 20 years an abode of peace, inter-ethnic and inter-religious understanding in a troubled world. One of the explanation is undoubtedly the economic success that made the Kazakhstan not only one of the fastest growing economy in the world, but also a top investor destination in the world economy statistics.

Kazakhstan 2050 is providing the basis for this healthy economy to continue his growth process. Investing in social protection and creating a strong internal demand are key factors for a stable rate of growth. Modernizing the economic potential, investing in new technologies are policy that will insure the world competitiveness of Kazakhstan national economy and the creation of a knowledge based economy are also a profitable long term investment.

The modern economy is based on technological transfer and Kazakhstan is becoming a champion in modernizing the basis of his economy via technology transfer and more important, Kazakhstan educational system mixed with the accent on entrepreneurship in economic development is creating the base for a managerial revolution, that will put Kazakhstan among the top economy`s of the world in term of creativity and intelligence incorporated in economic production.

Extremely interesting it is also the concept of a Kazakhstan patriotism. Instead of playing the card of nationalism or chauvinism, President Nursultan Nazarbayev is calling for the tradition, language and equality to blend into a new and successful Kazakh: a person well educated, wealthy , healthy enjoying the benefits of a modern state and administration and a state of the art medical system.
Kazakhstan is promising to put at the core of his foundation plan for 2050 the individual and his chances to prevail in a complex XXI century.

From Kazakhstan to the world. From world to Kazakhstan.

One of the keys of Kazakhstan national and international success was understanding that Kazakhstan could not evolve alone in the world, but always must stay in touch and be an intricate part of the world evolutions. There are many examples that support this conjecture in Kazakhstan two decades of independence story.

Kazakhstan economic miracle was built on partnership with western companies and oil extraction technology, but also on political negotiation with Russia on Caspian Sea exploration.
The Astana Expo 2017 will also be a proof of the lesson of mutual profit that Kazakhstan is offering to the world. Kazakhstan management of energy, the lessons of ecology and energy for a future, of environment protection, are going to be beneficial for the world economy and for the generations to come. This is just a new illustration of the Kazakhstan concept of successful quest for global significance.
Kazakhstan economic development had transformed the country in a major player in the development of Asia and Europe. Kazakhstan 2050 promises to continue this wise policy: from Kazakhstan to the world, from world to Kazakhstan, creating a synergy that could only beneficial for all the world nations.

Now the lessons of Kazakhstan 2050 are available for everybody: an example of a society of free people building a country for the future, not in isolation or competition, but in harmony with the world nations. In the concert of nations Kazakhstan is ushering in a new tone: a tone of hope.

ROMANIA RECREATING THE SILK ROAD PROJECT

Taking part in Ashgabat-the capital of Turkmenistan- at a debate on the new destiny of Silk Road, professor Dr. Anton Caragea, director of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation had announced the Romanian openness in taking part in a cultural resurrection project of the universal patrimony of Silk Road.

Silk Road Project is reconstructing the treasures of Asia

Besides Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan Romania will get involved by simultaneous hosting this year a large cultural show in Bucharest, show destined to rekindle the values and beauties of Silk Road.

The Silk Road was connecting Korea and China to Europe, transporting goods, ideas and cultural values but also economical treasures and unifying peoples and civilizations. The Romanian presence in this trans-continental endeavor was enthusiastically greeted by Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan as a modern resurrection of Silk Road, without Romania contribution this being uncompleted.

The Bucharest Exhibition  will reconstruct the treasures of Silk Road in a large exposition showing art creations from  the fabulous specified yurt and typical Central Asia housing on Silk Road to fantastic Bukhara rugs or to Turkmen carpets that are recreating the memories of 1001 Nights Oriental tales . Also lights and sounds and travel documentary will recreate for the visitors the magic atmosphere of the treasures of Silk Road.

Romania – lovitura de stat din 1989. O dezbatere intelectuala romano-franceza

Romania – lovitura de stat din 1989

Articol de Gerard Lucon- Redactor Agoravox-Franta  publicat la 26.01.2011

Traducere de Nina Georgescu – Redactor Agoravox-Franta

Daca ne intoarcem la anii 1967-1989 sa ne amintim ca Romania se distanta de politica Pactului de la Varsovia si avea o alta pozitie fata de razboiul de 6 zile si de Cehoslovacia.  De mentionat este si apropierea a doua tari , Albania si Romania de China comunista , ea insasi aflata in plina revolutie zisa culturala.

Atunci cand primavara de la Praga a facut sa rasune glasul stangilor europene de sustinere a marelui frate sovietic , cand Ungaria amorsa o privatizare lina in anii 70 tocmai datorita inteligentei diplomatice a lui Janos Kadar , doua tari se inchideau putin cate putin , transformand teritoriul lor in ghetouri.

Sosirea la putere a lui Mihail Gorbaciov avea sa modifice legaturile dintre USA si URSS si datorita acestor legaturi avea sa se faca si sa se desfaca tari si regimuri si sa se formeze noi echilibre.  Din acest punct de vedere anul 1989 prezinta un model exceptional de redistribuire a cartilor de joc si de creare a unui un nou echilibru.  Apropierea USA-URSS a antrenat si o apropiere a serviciilor secrete franceze (DGSE) si engleze (MI 5) iar aceasta apropiere a avut ca scop , printre altele , sa atinga in mod direct istoria Romaniei.Prima etapa a fost decizia lui Ceausescu de a-l trece in dizgratie pe Ion Iliescu.  Acesta din urma era vazut ca un demn succesor in anii de plumb , pentru ca apoi , brusc , sa fie suspectat ca simpatizeaza  cu politica lui Gorbaciov (Perestroika).   Aceasta suspiciune a capatat forma cu ocazia unei discutii intre cei doi  sefi de stat , atunci cand Gorbaciov i-a cerut lui Ceausescu sa inceapa un proces de liberalizare a tarii.  Iliescu a fost legatura intre cele doua tari.  Ceausescu a inteles imediat miza si riscurile. El l-a indepartat pe Iliescu de careul demnitarilor si i-a opus un refuz categoric lui Gorbaciov. In fata atitudinei incapatanate a lui Ceusescu , Gorbaciov s-a inteles cu George Bush sa schimbe regimul din Romania si sa-l dea jos pe Ceausescu.

Intre cele doua mari puteri intelegerea a fost simpla.  Gorbaciov avea sa se ocupe de Romania iar Bush de America Centrala aflata atunci in plina efervescenta (Nicaragua si Salvador).  Ca proba a bunavointei celor doi , Gorbaciov obtine sustinere din partea serviciilor secrete franceze si engleze , USA sunt lasate libere iar URSS inceteaza de a mai aproviziona cu arme cele doua tari care sunt Nicaragua (sandinista ) si Salvador (Frontul Farabundo Marti).

Sub egida lui Ion Iliescu a fost creat la inceputul anului 1989 un Comitet al Salvarii Nationale care avea sa-i regrupeze pe cei care vor fi vazuti la televiziunea nationala imediat dupa fuga lui Ceausescu.  De acum bazele loviturii de stat erau puse.  Mai ramanea de facut in asa fel ca aceasta tentativa sa nu se transforme in razboi civil deoarece puterea dispunea de un imens dispozitiv intern : Securitatea si o armata comandata de generali care nu erau neaparat prosovietici.

Sustinut activ si material de catre serviciile secrete franceze , olandeze si engleze , Comitetul Salvarii Nationale se organizeaza , in Occident  incepe o campanie de informare cu privire la grozaviile regimului aflat la putere in Romania , cu privire la sistematizare , la mutarile fortate si  instalarea celor de la sate in imobile si trecerea la distrugerea satelor. Este ciudat faptul ca aceasta actiune inceputa inca din anii 1970 nu a prezentat interes pentru mediile de informare occidentale decat in 1989. O prima etapa este depasita prin ralierea elitelor de origine maghiara.  Acolo au fost activate serviciile secrete ungare , in acele zone unde aceasta comunitate era deosebit de numeroasa , in unele departamente atingand chiar 90 % din populatie.

O a doua etapa a fost usoara negociere cu opozantii regimului Ceausescu , atat cei din exil cat si cei consemnati la domiciliu in tara.  Toti au fost contactati , la toti li s-a promis un loc sub soare daca sustin lovitura. Toti au acceptat , toti aveau sa obtina locul promis sub soare si ceea ce este si mai strigator , nici unul dintre ei nu avea sa fie uscis in timpul evenimentelor din decembrie 1989.

A treia etapa a fost depasita atunci cand pe teritoriul Romaniei au intrat , incognito , persoane provenite din nord . In spatele acestora se afla marele frate sovietic.  Armata romana incepe sa fie intoarsa , inclusiv generalii care aveau sa apara un timp la guvernarea din 1990  (Stanculescu la aparare) pentru ca apoi sa serveasca de tapi ispasitori.  Generalii Stanculescu si Chitac aveau sa fie judecati si condamnati la grele pedepse cu inchisoarea pentru mortii de la Timisoara.

In schim generalul GEOANA ,  ( tatal lui Mircea GEOANA nefericitul candidat la alegerile prezidentiale din 2009 ) cel care comanda piata din Bucuresti in decembrie 1989 trece neobservat.  Ciudata impunitate.

La fel s-a intamplat si cu generalul Vasile Milea care mai are si azi o strada care-i poarta numele in Bucuresti , el care totusi a fost acela care a trimis tancurile impotriva taranilor in timpul revoltelor din 1962.  Cat priveste Securitatea , ea fusese deja contactata dupa caderea zidului Berlinului , apoi intalnirea de la Malta intre Bush si Gorbaciov la 3 decembrie 1989 a finalizat dosarul Romania.  Mai concret , Iulian VLAD , comandantul Departamentului Securitatii Statului ar fi fost atunci cooptat pentru a face parte din grupul pucistilor.

Toate plasele fiind intinse mai ramanea doar sa fie demarata operatiunea.  Acest lucru s-a facut la Timisoara mai intai la 17 decembrie , apoi la Bucuresti la 21 decembrie cand s-a produs un eveniment inimaginabil.  Ceausescu a fost huiduit in timp ce-si tinea discursul la tribuna in piata care mai tarziu avea sa se numeasca Piata Revolutiei.


In aceasta tara in care fiecare suspecta pe fiecare , in care fratele isi putea denunta sora , unde paznicul de la scara blocului raporta toate miscarile proprietarilor si locatarilor , unde toata lumea era in permanenta in garda , unde totul era notat , consemnat , iata ca dintr-o data o imensa multime il contesta pe dictator.  Cine poate crede in spontaneitatea acestei miscari ? Apoi povestea cu macelul de la Timisoara care a ocupat prima pagina in presa occidentala pana in ziua cand s-a demonstrat ca a fost vorba de o montare sordida , ca au fost dezgropate niste cadavre ca totul sa para mai adevarat .  Peste 50 de persoane au fost ucise la Timisoara la 17 decembrie , cadavrele au fost transportate la Bucuresti , apoi au fost incinerate.  Dintre aceste cadavre 40 nu au fost revendicate de nici o familie romana.  Ipoteza prezentei la Timisoara de agenti rusi pentru lansarea loviturii de stat porneste de la acest eveniment.  Aceasta ipoteza este mult mai credibila chiar daca ea nu are nici o legatura cu mortii de la Timisoara.

Intr-adevar , in lunile care au precedat lovitura de stat au intrat pe teritoriul Romaniei aproximativ 200 de agenti SPETZNAZ , trupe speciale de comando parti integrante ale GPU ( Serviciul de Informatii Militare al Armatei Rosii) care au ca misiune sa intervina in pregatirea pe teren a loviturilor de stat si a invaziilor.  Aceste trupe au fost deja prezente in Cehoslovacia in 1968 , in Afganistan in 1979 .  Omologii lor americani erau in Chile inaintea loviturii de stat a lui Pinochet.  In Franta , trista si celebra Coloana a 5-a germana a fost deosebit de activa in dezorganizarea spatelui frontului francez in 1939.

Aceste servicii secrete care nu exista de ieri , cum puteau ele sa nu fie prezente la o asemenea operatiune ?

Zilele de 21 si 22 dec.1989 au insemnat o cheie capitala pentru reusita sau esecul puciului deoarece Securitatea , care initial incepuse sa traga asupra multimii , a operat o retragere brusca si a lasat armata sa gestioneze manifestatiile , via Directiei de Informatii a Armatei DIA , actuala DGIA. In tot cazul in ce-i priveste pe rusi nici o negociere nu mai era avuta in vedere data fiind aceasta atitudine ambigua a Armatei si a Securitatii , iar GORBACIOV avea sa dea ordinul de debarasare fizica a lui Ceausescu.  Nu numai ca el stia prea multe , dar mai ales faptul ca Securitatea ar fi putut continua sa-l sustina , fie si numai partial , iar Armata , din cauza ca o parte din ea nu era sub controlul pucistilor , risca sa se intoarca impotriva manifestantilor si a Comitetului Salvarii Nationale.  De altfel unele din unitatile ei deschisesera deja focul , inclusiv asupra altor unitati militare (aeroportul de la Otopeni).  Riscul unui razboi civil era prea mare si s-a considerat ca eliminarea fizica a dictatorului este probabil cea mai buna solutie pentru a elimina , sau cel putin a diminua acest risc.

Pentru ca lovitura de stat s-a desfasurat asa cum s-a prevazut , acesti agenti SPETZNAZ au fost retrasi in tara lor in ianuarie 1990. Cu privire la tot ce s-a intamplat nimeni nu si-a pus intrebari , nici chiar mediile occidentale. Si asta pentru ca dezinformarea a functionat foarte bine.

Cu toate acestea , cand ne uitam la ceremoniile oficiale ale epocii , la cele organizate in toate tarile de Est , nu putem sa nu fim frapati de jovialitatea oamenilor , de drapele , de surasuri , de entuziasm.  Si de aici deducem ca acesti oameni erau autorizati sa manifesteze si selectati pe sprinceana. Cum ne putem imagina cu seriozitate ca nu a existat o triere a manifestantilor si o manipulare in zilele de 17 si apoi 21 decembrie ? 

Deci lovitura de stat a fost lansta. Si ea va reusi sa preia controlul asupra televiziunii nationale , in frunte cu un pretins opozant al regimului devenit actor in aceasta actiune , Mircea DINESCU.  Se va ajunge apoi si la judecarea si condamnarea la moarte a sotilor Ceausescu de catre un tribunal de ocazie , a carui sentinta , redactata anticipat de catre , printre altii , de Gelu Voican Voiculescu , membru al Comitetului Salvarii Nationale si de membrii juriului alaturi de Ion Iliescu si Petre Roman.  Povestea acestui Voican Voiculescu este interesanta.  Inalt , cu o barba frumoasa si lunga  a la Karl Marx , el a fost peste tot prezent desi nimeni nu-l cunostea.  Este prototipul de persoana care a intrat in joc pentru ca era informat si a ramas acolo participand la tot ce se facea .  A fost acceptat pentru ca era cu gura mare.  Participant la aceasta pretinsa revolutie , el a devenit vice-prim ministru datorita prezentei sale pe o fotografie de grup alaturi de Ion Iliescu.

In privinta lui Mircea Dinescu care a devenit multimilionar dupa , consemnarea lui la domicilia a fost pur formala.  Adevaratii opozanti erau incarcerati in inchisori speciale , de regula la Pitesti , iar altii erau eliminati fizic direct in inchisoare  (Gheorghe Ursu de exemplu). Altii erau transferati la munci fortate ( sapare la Canalul Dunarii) , altii intrasera in rezistenta si traiau in muntii Fagarasului unde unii din ei chiar au murit si in fine altii au fugit in strainatate.

Ceeace este fapt sigur este ca din acel moment Iliescu a preluat fraiele puterii.  Petre Roman a fost numit prim ministru , Voican Voiculescu avea sa fie numit mai tarziu Ambasador . Post deloc rau pentru unul care a facut ca presedintele  sa fie condamnat la moarte , ca apoi sa devina diplomat de cariera.   Povestea lui Petre Roman este si ea interesanta. Membru al nomenclaturii sub Ceausescu , el avea doua defecte pentru Elena Ceusescu : era evreu si se combinase cu fiica ei.  De aceea s-a decis sa fie trimis sa-si faca studiile in Franta , la Toulouse , ca sa se sparga relatia.  El avea sa revina in tara pentru a participa la aceasta « revolutie » si a fost transportat cu elicopterul de la Constanta la Bucuresti de serviciile de securitate.

Ati zis revolutie ?

Ceea ce putem extrage din aceste evenimente este ca prezenta trupelor speciale de comando sovietice si interventia omologilor lor frncezi , americani si englezi la nivelul armatei romane si a unei parti a conducatorilor Securitatii , a facut posibil sa se dispuna de o contra pondere enorma chiar in interiorul organelor de represiune.

Ceea ce mai putem adauga este ca in afara de serviciile secrete , chiar si ambasadele tarilor lor respective au fost locuri de agitatie si manipulare , inclusiv presa si mediile straine. Au fost patru ore de agitatie , cateva zile de impuscaturi in dreapta si-n stanga , 1500 de civili si cca. 50 de militari morti , iar la nivelul aparatului de stat , doi morti , Nicolae si Elena Ceausescu.

Cine mai indrazneste azi sa vorbeasca de revolutie ?

Acum cand bazele au fost puse , ar fi bine sa privim toate aceste lucruri care au fost subiecte de interes si de mobilizare in Occident dupa 1989  ( copii abandonati , copii strazii , SIDA , persoane cu handicap , coruptie , romii , adoptiile , prostitutia , pungasii ). Ar fi bine sa vedem si cum s-au adaptat si reciclat acesti fosti conductori , acesti fosti colaboratori si unde se afla ei acum : in guvernul roman , la Bruxelles , la Strasbourg , la Washington.  Nu au lipsit nici unele caderi in dizgratie.   Un ziarist roman , acum decedat , Silviu Brucan , fost comunist , spunea ca Romania va avea nevoie de 20 de ani pentru a iesi din comunism in stil romanesc.  El era optimist .  Romanii care au peste 45 ani si care sunt la putere sunt fosti nomenclaturisti , iar cei care au mai putin de 45 de ani si care sunt la putere sunt fii acestora.

Traducere comentariu la articolul :  Roumanie , le coup d’Etat de 1989

OPINIA ROMANEASCA LA ACEST ARTICOL

Buna ziua domnule Gerard Lucon.

Articolul dvs. este foarte bun. Ati avut cu siguranta surse de informare bune iar informatiile pe care ni le-ati transmis sunt importante si ele au meritul de a demonstra ca evenimentele din decembrie 1989 care au avut loc in Romania nu au fost o Revolutie.  Mai exista inca in Romania si in strainatate numerosi ignoranti dar si oameni de rea credinta care , desi cunosc adevarul , afirma totusi contrariul.  Ei au cu siguranta un interes in ascunderea adevarului.  Dar asta este o alta problema. 

Exista totusi in articolul Dvs. o neconcordanta intre prezentarea faptelor , care de altfel este corecta , si anume :

-         sosirea la putere a lui Mihail GORBACIOV si legaturile dintre Statele Unite si URSS pentru a face si desface tari si regimuri , pentru a construi noi echilibre ;

-         apropierea dintre SUA si URSS care a condus si la o apropriere intre serviciile secrete franceza si engleze avand drept scop sa atinga istoria Romaniei in mod direct ;

-         sustinerea acordata de serviciile secrete franceze , olandeze si engleze Comitetului roman al Salvarii Nationale , etc.

deci repet , exista o neconcordanta intre prezentarea faptelor si concluzia la care Dvs. ajungeti : Lovitura de Stat.

Potrivit rezultatului obtinut prin cercetarile mele nu este vorba de o lovitura de stat ci de ceva mult mai grav , de un Razboi Secret avand drept scop , asa cum si Dvs. bine spuneti , de a schimba istoria.  Primul act care a simbolizat schimbarea istoriei a fost pangarirea drapelului national si de stat al Romaniei si decuparea stemei patriei noastre.  Drapelul a fost dupa aceea arborat in forma sa pangarita in locuri publice ca un trofeu al invingatorilor pe pamantul Romaniei socialiste.  ( 19 dec.1989 la Timisoara )

Acest Razboi Secret a fost realizat de catre serviciile secrete ale puterilor economice straine , cu ajutorul unor tradatori romani care au folosit metodele specifice ale serviciilor secrete cum ar fi capacitatea de manipulare a informatiei si dezinformarea maselor , diversiunea psihologica , radio – electronica si diversiune cu foc terorist impotriva poporului roman.

Or este bine cunoscut faptul ca dezinformarea si diversiunea in diferitele ei forme sunt arme de razboi.

Pentru o mai buna intelegere a evenimentelor din decembrie 1989 din Romania va prezint mai jos contextul in care s-a nascut Razboiul Secret ,

Pierderea prestigiului SUA in razboiul din Vietnam , grava si marea criza a Capitalismului din anii 1970 care afecta ansamblul societatii capitaliste aratau ca SUA si tarile capitaliste dezvoltate , cu fragilele lor democratii occidentale , nu mai puteau oferi o perspectiva pe plan national si mondial.  Capitalismul era intr-o disperare totala pentru ca nu mai putea face fata competitiei istorice cu Socialismul si democratia socialista care , intr-un timp istoric relativ scurt reusise sa se impuna ca sistem economic , social si politic pe plan mondial.

In aceste conditii , in timpul presedintiei lui NIXON , liderii politici americani si marii sefi ai oligarhiei financiare s-au intalnit la inceputul anului 1973 si au hotarat , in secret , ca singura solutie pentru scoaterea Capitalismului din marea sa criza economica a anilor 1970 este distrugerea , cu orice pret , a Socialismului la nivel global si simultan , si nu actionand in mod izolat si din timp in timp , cum s-a procedat pana in 1973 cand s-a consemnat infrangerea Statelor Unite in razboiul din Vietnam. In felul acesta solutia iesirii din criza a fost deplasata din interiorul Statelor Unite si al tarilor capitaliste dezvoltate in afara frontierelor lor. O decizie politica secreta a fost luata , potrivit careia lumea capitalista formata din SUA si tarile occidentale aliate trebuia sa actioneze in 5 directii de atac impotriva Socialismului , si anume :

Distrugerea sistemului politic si economic socialist

  1. Recastigarea lumii a treia si restaurarea domintiei prin noi forme neo

coloniale.

  1. Reconstructia fostelor piete de desfacere prin expulzarea societatilor

apartinand statelor socialiste.

  1. Transformarea zonei tarilor care au cunoscut regimuri socialiste in

piata de desfacere pentru produsele industriale ale tarilor capitaliste.

  1. Preluarea controlului asupra principalelor surse de energie : petrol , gaze carbune , energie atomica .

S-a hotarat ca realizarea acestor obiective sa se faca printr-un Razboi Secret al carui nume de cod american era “Covert Operation” , adica Operatiuni sub Acoperire.

Aceasta misiune secreta  a fost incredintata serviciilor secrete ale Statelor Unite si tarilor capitaliste dezvoltate membre NATO , precum si unor organizatii oculte  (GLADIO , etc.) Pentru punerea in opera a Razboiului Secret s-a facut un Plan care a fost aprobat de sefii statelor capitaliste interesate in distrugerea concurentei economice a sistemului socialist. Ofensiva occidentala impotriva tarilor socialiste europene a prezentat un interes deosebit pentru Administratia americana care a transmis principalilor sai aliati din NATO cele ce urmeaza :

“ Evenimentele din Europa se desfasoara rapid si este necesara o coordonare mai stransa intre statele membre ale NATO pentru a putea controla situatia si accelera cursul favorabil intereselor Occidentului.

In acest sens este necesara o redistribuire a rolului statelor occidentale si o mai mare implicare in actiunile care trebuie sa influenteze evolutiile in diferitele tari socialiste.  In aceasta situatie :  Statele Unite vor trebui sa se concentreze mai ales pe situatia din URSS ,  in timp ce R.F.Germania si Anglia trebuie sa se ocupe mai mult de problemele ce privesc R.D.Germania , Polonia , Cehoslovacia , iar Franta si Italia , de tot ce priveste Ungaria , Bulgaria si Romania.

Razboiul Secret ca ofensiva globala pentru distrugerea Socialismului a fost pregatit o lunga perioada de timp , incepand din 1973.  In momentul cand s-a considerat ca toate conditiile sunt indeplinite s-a decis scoaterea lui la lumina , declansarea lui in 1989-1991  in Europa si URSS , sub acoperirea de Revolutii , dupa principiul Dominoului .  Asa-zisele revolutii au fost :  revolutia sangeroasa din Romania , revolutia mai putin sangeroasa din URSS , revolutiile de catifea din Bulgaria , Cehoslovacia , RDG , Polonia si Ungaria.  Aceste revolutii au fost continuate dupa 1991 sub forma de revolutie portocalie in Ukraina si revolutia rozelor din Georgia.

Acest Razboi Secret a reusit pana in prezent sa distruga socialismul si oamenii din Europa si URSS.  Aceasta reusita nu ar fi fost posibila fara sustinere din partea unor unor inalti demnitari din tarile socialiste , chiar foarte inalti , din partea unor tradatori din cadrul serviciilor secrete socialiste , din partea resturilor nazismului care mai existau in aceste tari si din partea unei parti a diasporei din tarile socialiste.

Statele Unite au lansat un nou principiu in istoria natiunilor.  Ele au afirmat ca nu este tradator cel ce actioneaza impotriva securitatii nationale a propriei sale tari daca el se pune in acelasi timp la dispozitia Agentiei Centrale de Informatii a Statelor Unite : CIA.    Pentru CIA celelalte state nu au nici o valoare.

Distrugerea adversarului concurent printr-un Razboi Secret Global este o premiera mondiala in istoria razboaielor si a umanitatii.

Alexandr Radu Timofte , fost director general al Serviciului Roman de Informatii SRI  (1999-2005) descrie aceasta premiera mondiala in felul urmator :  “ In toata perioada de dupa razboi , prin metodele specifice ale Razboiului Secret ai caror actori sunt serviciile secrete , sfarsitul Razboiului Rece a fost accelerat si inamicul mondial , respectiv sistemul socialist instaurat pe 1/3 parte a planetei , a fost invins.  La scara istorica acest proces poate fi considerat ca fiind cea mai mare victorie a unui sistem informational secret “

Se poate observa ca solutia pentru scoaterea Capitalismului din cea de a doua sa mare criza a fost doar un paliativ pentru Statele Unite si Occident.

Situatia pe plan international s-a agravat , lumea este mai saraca si mai instabila , iar Capitalismul a intrat , prin intermediul Statelor Unite , in cea de a treia sa mare criza

PREDICTIONS FOR 2011

STATE OF THE WORLD FORECAST  REPORT FOR 2011 by PROFESSOR ANTON CARAGEA PhD,MA, FINS

It is in human nature to search for answers regarding the shaping of the future. It is a natural impulse that today science is offering a response by such disciplines as futurology and political science. 2011 it is in many respects just a continuation of 2010 evolution in economy and foreign affairs and is creating the path for 2012 when new and decisive election will be held in United States, Russia and across the world.


Homeless in United States: a common faith for 10 million people.

The economic crisis will worsen.

A regular companion of world economy in the last 3 years was the economic crisis. The crisis that unlashed over United States in 2007 and soon consumed the all world. 2011 will be still a year of the crisis. United States fails to be the engine for recovery in economy is fighting a record public deficit of   over 14 trillion dollars, more than 47 million americans living below poverty line and consumer confidence hitting record low. In politics a time and resource consuming battle between democrats and republicans in Congress and a paralyzed presidency of a crippled Barrack Obama , all this show that United States are far away not only from any recovery chance,  but also for a stagnation that will be more favorable that the present day gloomy economic outlook.

European Union is also confronting severely battled economy .Public record deficits in Ireland, Greece, Spain and Portugal (famous PIGS of European economy) are hindering EU image as an economic powerhouse. France and Great Britain are far from being out of recession and Germany fantastic growth figures are regularly downgraded, making a shame of the famous German punctuality and honesty. Germany has long receded from being the leader and acumen of Europe to be the problem child of Europe economy. With record deficits, rampant inflation, record dropping life standards, Germany is looking set in becoming the next bailout candidate of Europe not the pillar of Europe recovery.

India and China also experienced a halt in their record growth figures and 2011 will see this figures rapidly diminished. China economy ,  is growing now only on internal market demand at the expense of here competitivity  . Growing salaries and improving life conditions in China are surely positive news for Chinese people, but this is reflecting in a 35% increase in Chinese products prices in 2010. These tendencies will continue in 2011 and will reduce Chinese goods appeal in the world market.   China and India are not in the position to drag alone the world economy out of the precipice.   The economic crisis is here to stay in the next five years.

Pressure on China .

The most interesting political game of 2011 will be the cat and mouse game that Washington is playing with Beijing. In 2010 Washington wanted China`s alignment on anti-Iran resolution in the Security Council. It was enough for United States to play the economic card, agitating measures such as nominating China as a currency manipulator and imposing unilateral economic sanctions for China to back down and to support the US sponsored resolution in United Nations Security Council. In late 2010 when United States decided on a show of force on China Sea, at the door step of China, it was enough to describe China as a menace for the Far East region and to support Japan military resurgence for China to back down. It was reportedly that the December military exercises held by South Korea and US in East China Sea have being proven so efficient that China was put on a defensive posture.

In 2011 China will face new decisions: a new anti-Iran resolution that is drafted by US and will be put before Security Council in the spring of 2011, clearing the way for a military action against Iran. If China joins this resolution, his stance in the third world as an alternative power to United States and an agent of multilateralism will fade away definitively. Also United States are decided to support South Korea pressure against  North Korea, pressure that will be efficiently only if China goes on board. In a word China is confronted  in 2011  with the same decision as in 2010: should it be content with the stature of a middle power, as Great Britain or France ,and take care of his regional agenda or maintaining a great power profile embarks himself in a confrontation policy with United States ? Regional politics or big player, this is the alternative that Beijing is had to make.

Iran: new sanctions.

In December 2010 after failed talks, Iran and P+5 decided on a last ditch attempt in January 2011 to lift up the dialogue in Istanbul on Iranian nuclear issue. The rift between the parties is clearer than ever: Iran hold us up to his right on peaceful nuclear development while United States is determined to see Iranian nuclear program dismantled. Under this conditions is not difficult to predict the failure of the talks. United States have  already drafted a resolution, clearly laying out the path for military action against Teheran. Last year Russia and China with Brazil and Turkey intercession, succeeded to amend the draft, excluding the key phrase of -by every dint necessary. This year Russia will not oppose this green light for military action , while China stance is yet unclear. The battle around this new United Nations resolution will be undoubtedly the main diplomatic event of 2011.

Putin and Medvedev: a love-hate relation ?

Russia: fight for power.

In Russia the power struggle between the make shift President, Dimitry Medvedev and his benefactor, omnipotent prime-minister Vladimir Putin, is taking epic  and opera type proportions. Until now the battle between President  and Prime Minister was held on the streets of Moscow ,where Kremlin backed supporters tacking  to the streets against the Prime Minister administration. This battle in the street was won by Medvedev, that obtain on grounds of police brutality against manifestant`s, the removal of Putin rock-stone allied, Yuri Rajkov, mayor of Moscow. With the battle for Moscow won, Medvedev started two more fronts: a public offensive against the corruption and inefficiency of Putin government and on the world stage a battle for a new Russia image. Inflaming the rage of Putin, Dimitry Medvedev launches his new vision on Lisbon Treaty backstage. A Russia led by Medvedev ,without the omnipresent Putin , will support US efforts in controlling Iran and China , will assure a steady supply of raw materials to US and Europe economy and will request only a regional influence. Medvedev went as far as asserting that Russia relations with Georgia could be massively improved.    As naturally US and Europe force pledge support for the democratic vision of President Medvedev in contrast with authoritarian past of Russia, a diplomatic phrase describing Vladimir Putin policies. Vladimir Putin opera style response: in Sankt Petersburg a giant show on Christmas with him as a super star, congratulated as the greatest man that ever lived by Alain Delon, Sharon Stone, Kurt Russell and Gerard Depardieu. The star of the show-Putin even made a public performance and sings on the piano. 40 millions Russian have watch the show live on television. Score 1-1 for Putin.  The battle for Russia will be another interesting event of 2011.

Israel: a new aggression?

For Tel Aviv 2011 is starting under negative auspices: a frozen relation with White House after the illegal settlements build on Palestinian soil continued controversy and Barrack Obama support for an independent Palestinian state. The Israel international isolation after Mavi Marmara attack in international waters and Turkeys movement to isolate the hebrew state and illegal Gaza blockade made even European Union to start swaying away from Israel position.  After all this failures Benyamin Netanyahu extreme right government has only one solution to galvanize public opinion on his side: a new conflict either by unleashing a new attack on Gaza or on Lebanon. In 2010 Israel violated daily Lebanon air space, sponsored spy infiltration rings in the Cedar country and created a strong pressure to further weaken the country. But anew attack on Lebanon risk to alienate even further the western supporters of Israel and the lessons of 2006 defeat of Israeli military at the hands of Hezbollah is not easy forgotten. In Gaza ,also Hamas has survived blockade and daily attack by Israel in 2010 and even grow in popularity and capitalized on the international humanitarian effort for the people of Gaza in 2010. Gaza is a more labile target; with light weaponry could not stand efficiently against Israel war machine. But a small military victory will compensate the political storm that such an attack will unleash? Benyamin Netanyahu seems to think that this wage worth tacking it.

Savage german police brutality images.

Europe: fight for democratic system.

Europe is having a lot of problems to sort off in 2011. The economic crisis that is engulfing the continent is already described. Another ugly head that is appearing on the continent is sectarian divisions. Nobody forgets the Switzerland vote in banning minarets, the France ban on Muslim scarf, the closing of hundreds of mosques in Europe in the last year and the vicious attack on Tony Blair sister in law that converted to Islam and was nearly to be killed by British extremists. These anti-minority events will repeat and inflammatory statements like Angela Merkel opinion that multiculturalism have failed will support this kind of attacks. Europe is having in this moment more than 40% of population living below poverty line of 500 euro’s per month , increase unemployment’s ,  social and cultural amenities incapable in supporting European population needs, a medical system in grip and a deficit of democracy. As states are finding difficult to cope with this problems an easy escape is the time old remedy of anti-immigration rhetoric.

After being championship of democracy in the last 50 years, European democratic system is starting to show his wrinkles.  Great Britain police resulted to argentine style suppression of mass student demonstration in December 2010 against tuition fees rise. In France against anti-pension reform demonstrators were halted by armed forces and in Germany government resorted to pointing out in a 30`s style the immigration and failed multiculturalism as the culprits behind economy collapsed. The fight for maintaining a viable and democratic system in Europe is a difficult one that 2011 will just be a step.

UNITES STATES ARE ECONOMICALLY BANKRUPT SAY`S FIDEL CASTRO

NATO, the world police force.

Many people feel nauseous when they hear the name of that organization.
On Friday, November 19 in Lisbon, Portugal, the 28 members of that aggressive institution, engendered by the United States, decided to create something that they cynically call “the new NATO”.
NATO was born after WW II as an instrument of the Cold War unleashed by imperialism against the USSR, the country that paid for the victory over Nazism with tens of millions of lives and colossal destruction.
Against the USSR, the United States mobilized, along with a goodly portion of the European population, the far right and all the neo-fascist dregs of Europe, brimming with hatred and ready to gain the upper hand for the errors committed by the very leaders of the USSR after the death of Lenin.
With enormous sacrifice, the Soviet people were able to keep nuclear parity and to support the struggle for the national liberation of numerous peoples against the efforts of the European states to maintain the colonial system which had been imposed by force throughout the centuries; states that, in the post-war period, became allies of the Yankees who assumed command of the counter-revolution in the world.

In just 10 days –less than two weeks –world opinion has received three great and unforgettable lessons: G-20, APEC and NATO, in Seoul, Yokohama and Lisbon, in such a way that all honest persons who can read and write and whose minds haven’t been warped by the conditioned reflexes of the imperialist mass media machine, can have a true idea about the problems affecting humankind today.
In Lisbon, not one world was said that was capable of transmitting hope to billions of persons suffering from poverty, under-development, shortages of food, housing, health, education and jobs.
Quite the opposite: the vainglorious character who is the head of the NATO military mafia, Anders Fogh Rasmussen declared, in tones reminiscent of a little Nazi Fuhrer, that the “new strategic concept” was to “act anywhere in the world”.  Not in vain was the Turkish government about to veto his appointment when the Danish neo-liberal Fogh Rasmussen, as premier of Denmark, using the excuse of freedom of the press, defended, in April of 2009,  the authors of serious offences against the prophet Mohammed, a figure much respected by all Muslim faithful.
There are quite a few in the world who remember the close relations of cooperation between the Danish government and the Nazi “invaders” during WW II.
NATO, a bird of prey sitting in the lap of the Yankee empire, even endowed  with tactical nuclear weapons that could be up to many times more destructive that the one that obliterated the city of Hiroshima , has been committed by the United States in the genocidal Afghanistan war, something even more complex than the Kosovo exploit and the war against Serbia where they massacred the city of Belgrade and were about to suffer a disaster if the government of that country had held its ground, instead of trusting in the European justice institutions in The Hague.
The ignominious declaration from Lisbon, vaguely and abstractly states in one of its points:
“I support regional stability, democratic values, the security and integration of the Euro-Atlantic space in the Balkans.”
“The Kosovo mission is oriented towards a lesser and more flexible presence.”
Now?
Even Russia cannot forget it so easily: the actual fact is that when Yeltsin broke up the USSR, the United States moved NATO boundaries and its nuclear attack bases forward from Europe and Asia to the heart of Russia.
Those new military installations were also threatening the Peoples’ Republic of China and other Asian countries.
When that happened in 1991, hundreds of SS-19, SS-20 and other powerful Soviet weapons were able to reach, in a matter of minutes, the US and NATO military bases in Europe.  No NATO Secretary General would have dared to speak with the arrogance of Rasmussen.
The first agreement on nuclear weapons limitations was signed as early as May 26, 1972 between President Richard Nixon of the United States and Communist Party Secretary General Leonid Brezhnev of the USSR with the aim of limiting the number of antiballistic missiles (ABM Treaty) and to defend certain points against missiles having nuclear payloads.
Brezhnev and Carter signed new agreements in Vienna, known as SALT II in 1979, but the US Senate refused to ratify those agreements.
The new rearmament promoted by Reagan, with the Strategic Defence Initiative, ended the SALT agreements.
The Siberian gas pipeline had been blown up already by the CIA.
A new agreement, on the other hand, was signed in 1991 between Bush Sr. and Gorbachev, five months before the collapse of the USSR. When that happened, the socialist bloc no longer existed. The countries that the Red Army had liberated from Nazi occupation were not even able to maintain independence.  Right-wing governments that came to power moved over to NATO with weapons and baggage and fell into the hands of the US.  The GDR which, under the leadership of Erich Honecker had made a great effort, was unable to overcome the ideological and consumerist offensive launched from the same capital that had been occupied by the Western troops.
As the virtual master of the world, the United States increased its mercenary and warmongering policy.
Due to a well-manipulated process, the USSR fell apart.  The coup de grâce was dealt by Boris Yeltsin on December 8, 1991 when, in his capacity of president of the Russian federation, he declared that the Soviet Union had ceased to exist.  On the 25th of that same month and year, the red flag bearing the hammer and sickle was lowered from the Kremlin.
A third agreement about strategic weapons was then signed by George H. W. Bush and Boris Yeltsin, on January 3, 1993, that prohibited the use of multiple-warhead Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (the IBMs). It was passed by the US Senate on January 26, 1993 with a margin of votes of 87 to 4.
Russia was the heir to USSR science and technology – which, in spite of the war and the enormous sacrifices, it was able to bring its power up to the level of the immense and wealthy Yankee empire – the victory over fascism, the traditions, the culture and the glories of the Russian people.
The war in Serbia, a Slavic country and people, had severely sunk its fangs into the security of the Russian people, something no government could allow itself to ignore.
The Russian Duma – outraged by the first Iraq war and the war in Kosovo where NATO had massacred the Serbian people – refused to ratify START II and didn’t sign that agreement until 2000 and in that case it was to try to save the ABM Treaty that the Yankees were not interested in keeping by that date.
The US tries to use its enormous media resources to maintain, dupe and confuse world public opinion.
The government of that country is going through a difficult phase as the result of its war exploits.  In the Afghanistan war, all the NATO countries, with no exception, are committed along with several others in the world, whose people find hateful and repugnant the carnage that rich industrialized countries such as Japan and Australia and others in the Third World are involved in to greater or lesser degrees.
What is the essence of the agreement approved in April of this year by the US and Russia?  Both parties commit to reduce the number of strategic nuclear warheads to 1,550. About the nuclear warheads in France, the United Kingdom and Israel, all capable of striking Russia, not one word is spoken.  About the tactical nuclear weapons, some of them much more powerful than the one that obliterated the city of Hiroshima, nothing. They do not mention the destructive and lethal capacity of numerous conventional weapons, the radio-electric and other systems of weapons to which the US dedicates its growing military budget, greater than those of all the other nations together.  Both governments are aware, and perhaps many of them that met there also, that a third world war would be the last war.  What kind of delusions can the NATO members be having?  What is the tranquility that humankind can derive from that meeting?  What benefit for the countries of the Third World, or even for the international economy, can we possibly hope for?

They cannot even offer the hope that the world economic crisis will be overcome, nor for how long that improvement would last.  The US total public debt, not only of the central government but of all the rest of the public and private institutions in that country, now totals a figure equal to the world GDP of 2009, totalling 58 trillion dollars. Have the persons meeting in Lisbon even wondered about where those fantastic resources would be coming from? Simply, about the economies of all the rest of the peoples of the world, to whom the US handed over pieces of paper transformed into currency that over the last 40 years, unilaterally, ceased to be backed by gold and now the value of that metal is 40 times as much. That country still has veto power in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.  Why didn’t they discuss that in Portugal?
The hope of pulling out US, NATO and their allies’ troops from Afghanistan is idyllic.  They will have to leave that country before they hand over the power to the Afghan resistance, in defeat. The self-same US allies are beginning to acknowledge now what could happen decades before the end of that war; would NATO be prepared to stay there all that time? Would the very citizens of each of the governments meeting there allow that?
Not to be forgotten that a vastly populated country, Pakistan, shares a border of colonial origin with Afghanistan, as well as quite a large percentage of its inhabitants.
I do not criticize Medvedev; he is very correctly trying to limit the number of nuclear warheads that are pointing at his country.  Barack Obama can make up absolutely no justification. It would be a joke to imagine that the colossal and costly deployment of the anti-nuclear missile shield is to protect Europe and Russia from Iranian rockets, coming from a country that doesn’t even own any tactical nuclear devices.  Not even a children’s comic book can make such a statement.
Obama already admitted that his promise to withdraw US soldiers from Afghanistan may be postponed, and the taxes for the richest contributors suspended right away.  After the Nobel Prize, we would have to award him with the prize for “the best snake charmer” that has ever existed.
Taking into consideration the G.W. Bush autobiography now on the best seller list and that some smart editor pulled together for him, why didn’t they give him the honour of being a guest in Lisbon?  Surely the far right, the “Tea Party” of Europe would be happy.
