Is Putinism the answer to the US-Israeli imperium?
By Brandon Martinez
Is Vladimir Putin, the undisputed ruler of the Russian Federation for the past 15 years, the antidote to the lethal US-Israeli imperium? Will Putin rescue the Middle East from ever-more brash Israeli and American imperialists bent on the subjugation of the Muslim world?
Many people seem to think so, and they zealously advance skewed and myopic “analysis” to suit the ludicrous image of Putin as the second coming of Christ. “Putin can do no wrong,” these fantasists say with stubborn vigor, insisting that the former KGB chief is playing a master-class “chess match” on the global stage, setting up his adversaries for a big fall.
All of Putin’s outwardly gestures of complicity with Israel and Zionists, for instance, are casually brushed off as a carefully calculated ruse designed to deceive his enemies. Apparently, these lowbrow analysts can read Putin’s mind, assuring us that the Russian strong-man has good intentions for the Arab/Muslim peoples of the Middle East despite his genuflecting at the Wailing Wall, luncheons with Netanyahu and security agreements with the regime in Tel Aviv.
Recently, Putin has made several other displays of solidarity with the Zionists. In May of 2014, Putin passed legislation that outlaws any revision of World War II historiography vis-à-vis ‘the holocaust’ and even makes it illegal to bring attention to the savage misconduct of Stalin’s ‘glorious’ Red Army, which terrorized and brutalized whole nations. “The law signed Monday makes denial of Nazi crimes or misrepresentation of the Soviet Union’s role in World War II punishable by up to five years in jail or a $14,000 fine,” reported the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
At the close of WWII, marauding Soviet troops conducted the largest campaign of mass-rape in human history, sexually abusing two million German and Eastern European women in a wild carnal frenzy. These unspeakable atrocities against women were fully sanctioned by the Soviet Union’s war propagandists, principally Ilya Ehrenburg whose genocidal hatred of Germans was legend. Ehrenburg routinely exhorted Soviet troops to “kill the German!” in propaganda leaflets.
Thanks to Putin’s new freedom-busting law, these things cannot be openly discussed, much to the liking of Global Zionism whose casus belli for Israel’s existence rests upon the ‘holocaust’ mythos.
In a similar vein, Russian officials advanced a UN resolution in late November 2014 condemning the “glorification of Nazism” and “denial of German Nazi war crimes.” Considering Russia’s Communist past, the conspicuous resolution is an exercise in unreserved hypocrisy. Russian historian Nikolai Tolstoy places much of the blame for the 25-30 million Russian casualties during WWII on Stalin and the Soviet regime itself. He argues that Stalin, taking advantage of the ‘fog of war,’ executed a brutal campaign of repression against his own citizenry to bolster the position of his regime. Eliminating homegrown opposition to Stalinism was his primary concern, not the advancing German army, Tolstoy explains in great detail in his 1981 book Stalin’s Secret War. According to Tolstoy’s research, Stalin liquidated 18-20 million Soviet citizens during WWII in a “secret war against his own subjects.”
Despite Moscow’s fairy tales, Soviet Bolshevism took the lives of far more people than Hitler and National Socialism. So where is Russia’s resolution condemning the glorification of Communism and Stalinism? Not only is Putin’s Russia not concerned with attempts to glorify Communism, it is now illegal in that country to criticize Sovietism and its barbarous legacy.
Unbeknownst to his slavish groupies in the West, Putin solidified his power base in Russia by way of a false-flag terrorist attack on his own people.
“In 1999,” writes Canadian journalist Eric Margolis, “Vladimir Putin, a former KGB officer and point man for Russia’s military industrial complex, emerged from the shadows to become prime minister under ailing President Boris Yeltsin. Putin claimed the [1999 Russian apartment] bombings were the work of Chechen ‘Islamic terrorists financed by Osama bin Laden,’ though he offered no proof.”
No Chechens were ever detected in connection to the wave of terror, which leveled multiple apartments in Moscow and other Russian cities, killing hundreds and wounding thousands. On the other hand, three Russian FSB agents were caught red-handed planting a large bomb in the basement of an apartment building in Ryazan, unveiling the Kremlin’s hand behind the previous explosions elsewhere in Russia. The whole sordid affair is detailed lucidly in the documentary entitled “Assassination of Russia,” based on the extensive research of historian Yuri Felshtinsky and former FSB insider Alexander Litvinenko.
As hundreds of Russians were blown to bits as they slept in their beds, Putin took the opportunity to seize dictatorial control of the largest country on earth. “The public is reacting correctly to the events taking place in our country today,” Putin declared in reference to the apartment blasts, adding that the attacks induced the “correct response” from the public. Putin further pontificated: “No panic, no sympathy for the bandits. This is the mood for fighting them to the very end. Until we win, and we shall win.” (Yuri Felshtinsky and Alexander Litvinenko, Blowing Up Russia, p. 51)
Using the attacks as a pretext, Putin launched a mini “war on terror” in Chechnya. He quickly turned Chechnya’s capital Grozny into a massive burial ground. To justify his murderous campaign against the downtrodden Chechens, Putin employed all of the phraseology of the US-Israeli imperium’s post-9/11 “Global War on Terror,” announcing that Russia was being assailed by an “international Islamic conspiracy” and that unrelenting force was the only cure for nihilistic terrorists.
Eric Margolis, in his 2002 article titled “The Apartment Bombing Mystery,” explained:
Putin promised to ‘liquidate all terrorists.’ He proclaimed Russia was facing a war between ‘good’ and ‘evil.’ ‘It’s our boys,’ said Putin, fanning war fever and hysteria, ‘against terrorists’ belonging to an ‘international Islamic conspiracy.’ Putin’s alleged evidence of Chechen guilt was never forthcoming. Chechen leaders denied any responsibility for the bombings. Why they would seek war with Russia after gaining independence was never explained. Thousands of ‘swarthy-looking’ (meaning Muslim) men from the Caucasus and Central Asia were arrested, brutally interrogated, and held without charges. … The Kremlin kept insisting ‘Islamic terrorists’ did the bombings. A few months later, a wildly popular Putin, whose approval ratings hit 80%, was swept into the presidency of Russia on a wave of patriotic fervor, jingoism, xenophobia, and anti-Muslim hysteria.
Perhaps President George W. Bush’s “they hate us for our freedoms” lunacy after 9/11 was a throwback to Putin’s “evil Muslim terrorists vs. civilized Russians” spiel in 1999. No wonder Putin was the first person to call Bush on 9/11, pledging Russian support for the US war in Afghanistan. Is it also any wonder that Putin publicly decries “9/11 conspiracy theories” considering his own use of the Machiavellian false-flag tactic to achieve his political ends?
Putin’s bloody onslaught against Chechnya cost 57,000 Chechens their lives and made 200,000 more into refugees, reported Margolis in the same article. He continued: “Human rights organizations accuse Russian forces in Chechnya of ubiquitous brutality: mass murders and reprisals, arson, looting, torture, running concentration camps. Moscow rejects all such criticism, saying that rough methods are justified against ‘terrorists.’”
When armed Chechen fighters took hostages in a Moscow theatre in 2002, demanding Russian forces unilaterally withdraw from Chechen soil, the belligerent Putin reacted by ordering Russian Special Forces to pipe a toxic gas into the theatre which killed all 40 Chechen militants and also claimed the lives of 130 Russian civilian hostages. When, in 2004, Chechen rebels seized thousands of hostages in a school in Beslan, South Russia, Putin once again refused to negotiate, ordering Russian special services to raid the facility and “shoot to kill,” causing hundreds of deaths that could have otherwise been averted through mediation. Many people, including the advocacy group “Mothers of Beslan” which is comprised of mothers whose children perished in the tragedy, contend the Beslan incident was an inside job and that Russian security forces instigated the bloodbath by firing rocket-propelled grenades into the school before the militants initiated any force.
All of this dirty business is not enough to cause any dissent within the ranks of Putin loyalists. Whitewashing Putin’s dirty laundry is paramount for these ideological zealots posing as “analysts.”
However, many astute people not tied down by fan-boy cultism see Putin for what he is: a corrupt, power-hungry and self-interested politician, no different than the West’s beguiling leadership who are likewise steeped in political evil.
