(a belated article- insomnia musing)
I usually write a traditional article on the Victory on WWII on May 9. This time I am a little late. Maybe it was for the good of it though because this time I had a chance to watch Russian TV. They had celebratory shows which I got used to: the war is shown now without names, without places and without accents; like something that happened very long ago and far away; the 100-years war in France comes to mind. A Nobel Prize physicist Jourice Alferov called the Russian TV "a criminal organization'. Same as Vermacht, the German Army was defined at Nuremberg Trials. I don't really think the Russian TV is a criminal enterprise yet. I think ours is. I think Russian TV is desperate to copy ours. They are imitators. Someone explained to them that attention was everything, even the negative attention. As soon as the TV- customer keeps the TV on the money trickles down. No wonder they follow our suite; the less is the sense the more is the entertainment. So they would show Russian POWs in 1941, raggedy and gloomy- that's OK., who cares for those losers who all died anyway? But they would not show the famous parade oft 45000 German POWs through Moscow in 1944 because, their German sponsors of commercials might not like it. Not that they were told anything explicitly, no. But if you are a prostitute the high level is the anticipation of the client's hidden desires. That's what they are- prostitutes.
Anticipation, as I said. At the end of the TV show they come out with the new statement:
- To the eternal memory of the soldiers of the Great War!
That's what they say now. The prostitutes are catering to the ignorant.
The definition "The Great War', is reserved in history for the WWI. It makes perfect sense; that war was the first one of a kind. It involved the whole world and its results affected practically everyone and on equal levels. Nobody can claim righteousness in that war; it was a historic accident of biblical proportions, a paroxysm of madness which possessed the human race for some time and ended in carnage. Nobody won (except for the bankers) and nobody can claim any glory. The primary feeling of all parties after WWI was SHAME; the same way teenagers feel after they are separated in the fight and see each- others bloody noses. Only this time there were 10mln dead. Russia, BTW made peace with Germany separately, the famous Brest- Litovsk Treaty, signed by Trotsky on behalf of the Communist government in Moscow. Those commies, imagine that- they even debated and voted on the peace treaty to sign and it passed with a very slim majority; tell that to our Congress when they debated the invasion of Iraq.
In any case, that is what the Great War was all about- SHAME. The people of the world were ashamed of what they have done.
WWII was nothing like that. Not even close. The casualties were five times higher and there was no shame.
Hitler was created, nourished and developed by the corporate world as a remedy against their Nemesis, the communism. In their desperate fear not of Stalin ( no matter what they say now) and not of Komintern but of their own people, the corporations sought an Antichrist and sold their soul to the beast. They deliberately sacrificed everything on his altar; they betrayed Jews, minorities, workers, trade- unions, democrats, intellectuals, countries, territories, nations and economies. They betrayed Jesus Christ himself, all for that final moment when the unprecedented Unholy Crusade of 4mln Germans and their allies attacked Russia on that fateful day of June 22, 1941. They thought they won that time. But they lost. On May 9 1945 Soviet Armies stormed Berlin. The commies won. How could they?
I wrote about this before. Soviet Union won the WWII because they. were the best people on Earth at the moment. No , they did not call it a Great War. They called it THE SACRED WAR, THE PEOPLE'S WAR, THE GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR. That's how I heard about it when I was a child.
Patriotic War. The first time Russians had such war was in 1812 when
Napoleon invaded. That war was just Patriotic- the people of Russia stood
for their country and then way of life but they were not threatened by
elimination.. Napoleon thought he was
fighting with the Tzar, not the people. Only Tolstoy in his book had outlined the main reason of Napoleon's defeat when he
stated that at the battle of Borodino
the French were for the first time
confronted by the "spiritually more powerful enemy'. The book was translated;
why nobody read it here? Or maybe they
just can't read? It is called War and Peace.
That's what happened in the WWII- Russian people not only stood for their country- they stood against the threat of elimination, for the very existence of their nation, their species if you wish. ALL 100 nations of the Soviet Union were Russians in that war; all religions were Russian Orthodox and all ideologies were Communism, no matter who, no matter where, no matter what the cost. And all those Russians who fought and died and those who survived- they all were the best people on Earth,. That was the battle of the good against evil, light against darkness, civilization against barbarism and the symbol of goodness was hammer- and -- sickle and the symbol of death was the spider- swastika. Eat your checkers, the bastards of all kinds, the SOBs- Russia won the GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR AND SAVED THE WORLD.
Time had passed and now we know that to keep the spirit of Victory is tougher than to win especially if there is a constant pressure from those who have a big stake in the desired outcome; a lot of people here in the West would prefer to describe the WWII as the "Great War', when all were ashamed and nobody was right. They would prefer it that way to hide their soul selling. They would pay a lot to those prostitutes on the current Russian TV, all for just some words' rearrangement. Oh yes, they would pay a lot because their loot was bigger, much bigger than anyone of us can even imagine and that loot is still theirs and blood on their hands is still there too. Time had passed, they think, who cares?
I care. I will care forever because I know the truth. That truth is mine, without it I cannot exist. My people won that war, my people were the best in the world; I am a part of them I will defend their honor because it is my honor too. So now, loud and clear I proclaim:
- To the eternal glory of the Russian Soldiers and people of Russia of all origins who saved the world in 1941-1945 from the Nazi barbarism and to the Shame of those who created that barbarism, benefited from it then and are benefiting from it now.
Insomnia is good sometimes You surely think much clearer that way. Good luck to all of you and good night. Sleep well because you were saved by my people.
