June 22 is coming and I had returned from the trip to Spain and Portugal. King Juan-Carlos had just abdicated his throne to his son, Felipe. Two events dominated the newsreel: Madrid and Ukraine. There was quite a number of Americans on the trip and they all asked me what I thought about Ukraine. I had no comment. Leonardo Da Vinci once said:

- Never say the truth at the wrong time, place and to the wrong audience.

June 22 is coming all right and OEN is my audience. I still remember. Once before I named my article that way (see above). Now, more than ever I have to remember because the poltergeist of Nazism had been revived and is roaming over the same areas it once attacked on June 22, at 4 am. It is a very memorable day in our family. On that day my father, then a boy, survived the German bombing by a miracle and on the same day in Y2009 he died.

I watched the G7-summit in Spain. That was really a dance macabre. Mr. 'Rabbit' Yatzenuk stood among those jackals, visibly troubled. He understood his role of a marionette puppet but he also knew what happened to the other marionettes once they were discarded, whether in Vietnam or Libya. He understood that he was not among the Magnificent Seven but among the Degenerate Ones. In any moment they could turn into werewolves and swallow him raw. He was visibly scared.

And then there was Normandy. I watched the British TV when they announced that the D-day had 'turned the tide of war'. Suddenly I felt like an old man - very tired and helpless. Is it worth it to try to stop those lies? Is it worth it to say again and again that by June 1944 Russia was winning the war unconditionally, that Allies just wanted not to let the Russians take over the whole Europe, that there were 37 German divisions over the Atlantic fortifications while the Allies had about 100 with full supremacy in the air. No, that does not diminish the feat of the private soldier, not a bit. True warriors are never afraid of the truth. But all the TV stations roar the same and the crowd follows suit; who cares for the truth, let's drink to the Big Lie.
