Warsaw Pact

The Warsaw Treaty Organization of Friendship, Cooperation, and Mutual Assistance (1955–1991), or more commonly referred to as the Warsaw Pact, was a mutual defense treaty between eight communist states of Eastern Europe in existence during the Cold War.

The Most Dangerous Mobster in the World According to the FBI and Israeli Intelligence, Semion Mogilevich Rules Over an Arms-Trafficking, Money-Laundering, Drug-Running, and Art-Smuggling 'Red Mafia' and he's a Jew from Ukraine by Robert I. Friedman In two posh villas outside the small town of Ricany, near Prague, one of the most dreaded mob families in the world savagely murders its terrified victims. The mob's young enforcers, trained by veterans of the Afghanistan war, are infamous for their extreme brutality. Their quarry, usually businessmen who have balked at extortion demands, are repeatedly stabbed and tortured, then mutilated before they are butchered. The carnage is so hideous that it has scared the daylights out of competing crime groups in the area. The torture chambers are run by what international police officials call the Red Mafia, a notorious Russian mob family that in only six years has become a nefarious global crime cartel. Based in Budapest, it has key centers in New York, Pennsylvania ...
does anyone else notice how Russia annexing crimea is like Germany annexing sudtenland in 1983? What the *** is the point in teaching history if were not going to learn from our lessons. This makes me sick. People keep saying they don't want a world war III, my advice? don't let putin make a new warsaw pact. stuhhhpid.
So... NATO. Should they just break apart like the Warsaw Pact has done already?

Russia, you may have an ally in China which isn't enough against NATO and the western bloc. Sadly Warsaw pact is extinct since 1991
March 4, 2014 TUNE OUT THE WAR PARTY! By Patrick J. Buchanan With Vladimir Putin's dispatch of Russian troops into Crimea, our war hawks are breathing fire. Russophobia is rampant and the op-ed pages are ablaze here. ...When Red Army tank divisions crushed the Hungarian freedom fighters in 1956, killing 50,000, Eisenhower did not lift a finger. When Khrushchev built the Berlin Wall, JFK went to Berlin and gave a speech. When Warsaw Pact troops crushed the Prague Spring in 1968, LBJ did nothing. When, Moscow ordered Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski to smash Solidarity, Ronald Reagan refused to put Warsaw in default. These presidents saw no vital U.S. interest imperiled in these Soviet actions, however brutal. They sensed that time was on our side in the Cold War. And history has proven them right. (Read the entire article at:

This is what I see from gleaning information from many news sources, East, West, Left & Right, over the course of many years. In my view and understanding of the unfolding events, The US and the West is pushing for a confrontation and Russia has drawn the Real Red Line. Red Lines are being drawn everywhere by many Nations, dissecting this world, dividing it to the point there will be no coming together or relaxing of tensions, but the contrary. The propaganda mills are working overtime demonizing Russia with the talking heads parroting the government line without having the guts to speak Truth to power. With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, NATO absorbed all the former Warsaw Pact Nations, expanding NATO to the border of the Ukraine, the last buffer State between NATO and Russia. The US unilaterally withdrew from the Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty so George Bush could deploy an anti-ballistic missile system aimed at Russia. Americans hated that with the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Russia hates it to ...

Reviving the Cold War Dr. Strangelove Over Ukraine by JEFFREY SOMMERS Events in Ukraine are providing plenty of theater, but little economic change. Since the USSR’s collapse the ‘set’ has been changed many times over several acts of our long-running Ukrainian ‘play.’ Rotating oligarchs shift in and out looting the ‘set,’ but without a shift in plot. One set of oligarchs merely replaces another, with the periodic display of ‘color revolutions’ as wardrobe changes to re-animate the tired theme with a sense of novelty. Russian and Ukrainian nationalist continue to spar in a Spy vs. Spy fashion, while Ukraine’s economy continues to unravel and its people continue their exodus on an Old Testament scale to the ‘promised land’ of the EU. The scene for the original plot was set in the closing stages of the Cold War. George Bush (the elder) promised Gorbachev that if the Soviets let the Warsaw Pact go, Russia would never have to worry about the expansion of NATO. The US responded to this . ...
Anyways, presumably those Cold Warriors left in J-5 are going nuts with the prospect of some vintage NATO-Warsaw Pact scenarios
Would u say Ukraine situation is like if the Soviets had helped the IRA seize power & tried to get Ireland to join the Warsaw Pact?
It is clear 1956 and 1968 are repeating today. Small difference : Ukraine is not in the "Warsaw pact". United Nations, *** are you waiting for ?
For a long time I have harped about Russia and pointing out that the end of the Cold War was not all it was cracked up to be. The fall of the Soviet Union caused a void to open up around the world. those countries kept in check by the Soviets Now felt the need to expand their own dominance in there regions far beyond what was deemed acceptable in the past. 3rd world dictators felt more empowered without the confines of having to appeal to 2 Super Powers in what was a Bipolar world dominance. The United States and Russia opposed each other ideologically, politically, militarily, and economically. The Soviet Union promoted the ideology of communism: planned economy and a one-party state, while the United States promoted the ideologies of liberal democracy and the free market. This was reflected in the Warsaw Pact and NATO military alliances, respectively, as most of Europe became aligned with either the United States or the Soviet Union. These alliances implied that these two nations were part of an emergi ...
It usually takes years - if not decades - to be able to identify the period in which the world changed forever. We are on the cusp of such a moment right now. Russia has just directly challenged the United States for the leadership of the world. There is not a single Russian expert who believes that Putin is going to stop with the Ukraine. The only language that the Russians have ever understood is that of power. Economic power - yes; but primarily, the willingness to use military power. If President Obama allows the expanding Russian invasion of the Ukraine to go unchallenged, in five years, the basic framework of the old Warsaw Pact will be back in place. To prevent this nightmare of a future, this is the moment to start speaking to Russia with actions and not words. The only thing that will get Putin and the other Russian leaders to quit laughing so hard over President Obama's "dire" warning that he might not come to a G-8 meeting - in June - is when the President orders two carrier battle grou ...
Remember when the Warsaw Pact exploited US weakness and invaded West Germany in 1978? :P
NAM or Non Aligned Movement Summits Non Aligned Movement – Backgrounder What is NAM ? The full form of NAM is Non Aligned Movement. NAM is now an international organisation of states who consider themselves not formally aligned with or against any major power. History of NAM – Who and When was it founded ? The records indicate that the term non-aligned movement was first officially used by V K Krishna Menon, Indian Diplomat and statesman, at United Nations meeting in 1953. However, the actual NAM is considered to be the brainchild of Gamal Abdul Nasser (former President of Egypt), Jawaharlal Nehru (Prime Minister of India), Josip Broz Tito (President of Yugoslav), Kwame Nkrumah (President of Ghana), Sukarno (First President of Indonesia). These five are considered as the Founding Fathers of the NAM and it was founded in April, 1955. What was the purpose of establishing NAM ? What were the objectives ? In mid fifties, world was being divided into two blocks – American block and Russian Block. Th ...

"Hoxha's dogmatic Stalinist adherence, Albania broke with the S.U. in '60 and formally left the Warsaw Pact in '68..."
The headlines in the mainstream media shout, "Obama Warns Russia". Warns what? That President Obama, who at this point has just about zero credibility with both our allies and our enemies, will pout and make vague, pointless, unenforceable threats? Another "red line" that when crossed leads to no consequences, Mr. President? This is a weak President with very little international credibility, a man who is deliberately "drawing down" and weakening the U.S. military's "boots on the ground" forces as we speak. "Consequences" with what? Our overextended military, mired in Afghanistan and in pointless penny packets all over Africa? Please Mr. President, spare us the histrionics: you can't do anything to support democracy in Eastern Europe and you won't. The Russian troops are already in Ukraine, and are probably headed into Georgia as well in the near future. The Warsaw Pact is reuniting, and you will do nothing.

Something tells me his M.O is not only back to CCCP but making a new warsaw pact but including asia as well.
Western Europe wont allow Warsaw Pact 2 even glimmer again hes got it easy.
Russian troops in Ukraine. Remember 1968's Russian-Warsaw Pact invasion of Czech Republic after Prague Spring?...
On August 20, 1968, the Soviet Union led Warsaw Pact troops in an invasion of Czechoslovakia to crack down on reformist trends in Prague. Although the Soviet Union’s action successfully halted the pace of reform in Czechoslovakia, it had unintended consequences for the unity of the communist bloc.
But what's the purpose for it? Warsaw Pact doesn't exist anymore... It's leftover of Cold War.
No reports Ukraine's new gov't harming any of its people in Crimea or elsewhere. Russia claim of protection is fraudulent. New Warsaw Pact.
And tried to have Mexico to join the Warsaw pact^
that's one of the reasons Russia's acting here: they see rapport btwn former Warsaw Pact and EU as threat and retrench
also note that this provocative effort to pick off ex-Warsaw pact members was brought to you by the neocons and Shrubby, the glorious designers of the war ON Iraq, so obviously this is rational behavior
yes why doesn't Putin annex the whole of Eastern Europe as he pleases and reform the Warsaw Pact.

Having been near to Liptovsky Mikulas, 7 miles from the border with the Soviet Union, in 1968 when Warsaw Pact forces invaded Czechoslovakia to crush the "Prague Spring" the rhetoric coming from Rostov & Moscow now sounds eerily familiar
Would the US stand idle if Mexico was being invited into Warsaw Pact?
Warsaw Pact army killing Prague Spring in 1968 also wore no IDs. Coincidence?
Gee, what a shock that the Russians are blockading Crimean airports. Guess sovereign soil only counts outside the Warsaw Pact
For those that have been monitoring the situation in Ukraine... I just saw a report that suggests that 'unmarked' military forces have seized the Crimean regional airport. It sounds like Spetsnaz and the 'Military Exercise' Russia announced is scheduled to begin in the next 24 hours... Coincidence or are we about to see a repeat of the 1968 invasion of Czechslovakia by the Warsaw Pact or at least a Russian attempt to annex the Crimea?
Russia (USSR) invaded Hungary in 1956 & Czechslovkia in 1968 to keep them in the Warsaw Pact - its not unrealistic they will invade Ukraine.
At the end of the Cold War ,. the + dismounted their Warsaw Pact. but ,the West kept its So who is the "bad guy"
Since the USSR known as the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact no longer exist, the money to finance NATO can be repurposed or invested to fund the US Veterans Administration to better serve war and peace-time US military veterans!

I won’t bore you with a lot more history, but I do want to point out the difference between Poland and Ukraine. Those of you of a certain age will remember that Ukraine was one of the Soviet Republics, and therefore ruled from Moscow. Poland, on the other hand, was one of the “Warsaw Pact” or “Soviet Bloc” countries, with its own Communist government, which served at Moscow’s pleasure. Neither reality made for a good time, but the Soviet Republics had no decision over their own lives. Our Polish missionaries point to this to explain the mentality and behavior of eastern Ukraine. We visited the cities of Kryvyi Rih, Nikopol and Zaporizhzhia, for example, and I’ll bet most of you have never heard of them. The first has a population of 700,000 and the third a population of 900,000 – sizable cities where I come from! And, yes, they both have McDonalds (as does Kiev and Munich)! And Nikopol has the largest atomic power plant in Europe, with six nuclear reactors. And they all have multiple statu ...

Voices of dissent in the Western Ukraine: "Comment from a Ukrainian in today’s Guardian: I am Ukrainian living in the West. To give some perspective and info as I have relatives there: 1 – opposition is not unified. Majority are peaceful normal people, but 15-20% are hardcore ultra-right/fascist – incidentally they are the ones with guns. 2 – current parliament is afraid of the ultra-right, and first law they passed was to abolish russian as minority language – very stupid mistake as normal people dont care one bit who speaks what language and it only antagonized Odessa 3 – normal average people are very very ambivalent towards the opposition politicians – all of them are tainted, and in private people say that its better if all of them are disposed of, not just yanukovitch. problem is, there is nobody else except the ultra-right 4 – ultra-right militias are right now conducting pogroms on former officials and their families, similar to what Lenin did in 1917 – basically they have a list ...

Together with Witek (Marian Dziędziel), whom she hires as a driver, they travel to the seaside to fulfill the dying wish of Basia's partner. Against the backdrop of the Silesian landscape, they discover their prevailing feelings of loneliness, which slowly start to drift away. They reveal the secrets of their pasts as their relationship grows more intense. The new emotion is mature and critical for their further life. "They feel how much they need each other", Jerzy Domaradzki says in an interview with the newspaper Rzeczpospolita. "And they see that there is still something before them". The film is simultaneously a portrait of a 20-year-old democratic system, which gives rise to reflections on the amplitude of the changes. Th . ...
Thoughts on the Ukraine from a former IO As North Americans, it's easy for us to love 'Freedom' and get excited when we see people in Ukraine or Syria crave democracy. I, too, have these feelings. I'd like everyone to pause and think about what we would think if we lived in Russia. This 'nation-state empathy' is essential in IOs--we have to look out of the other guys eyes all the time So--if you're Russian, having the EU (which has a military component and is run by the Germans) in Ukraine is roughly the equivalent of Quebec joining the Warsaw Pact. This isn't just about 'economics' or 'freedom'. Powerful nation-states have zones of control that help create the climate of safety and assurance that allow the conditions of diplomacy and trade. Russia is, in fact, less powerful and more insecure than they were twenty years ago--and that's saying something. If you think that we North Americans are immune from these feelings, I'll just mention two words--Cuba, and Quebec. Enough said? I am not advocatin ...
Serious situation growing in the crimea Russian troops massing on the border with Ukraine. Brings memories of the Prague Spring of 1968 when the reformist Gov of dubćec tried to stand up to the warsaw pact. I can remember their flag given pride of place at celtic park and fans chanting dubćec.
Warsaw Pact countries,SI,HR were never bombed by Nato. Biggest concern today for Eu/Nato relations is Cyprus, not Serbia.

Historical Events, this day February 25 In 1791, the First Bank of the U.S. at Philadelphia became the first national bank chartered by Congress. In 1836, Samuel Colt patented a revolving gun, the first of the six-shooters. In 1870, Hiram Rhoades Revels, a Republican from Natchez, Miss., was sworn into the U.S. Senate, becoming the first African-American to sit in Congress. In 1901, the United States Steel Corp. was founded by J.P. Morgan. In 1933, the USS Ranger, the first custom-built aircraft carrier, was launched.

The beginning of the 1990s brought a thaw in relations between the superpowers. Gorbachev reforms Further information: Mikhail Gorbachev, perestroika, and glasnost By the time the comparatively youthful Mikhail Gorbachev became General Secretary in 1985,[225] the Soviet economy was stagnant and faced a sharp fall in foreign currency earnings as a result of the downward slide in oil prices in the 1980s.[253] These issues prompted Gorbachev to investigate measures to revive the ailing state.[253] An ineffectual start led to the conclusion that deeper structural changes were necessary and in June 1987 Gorbachev announced an agenda of economic reform called perestroika, or restructuring.[254] Perestroika relaxed the production quota system, allowed private ownership of businesses and paved ...
Crisis and escalation (1953–62) Main article: Cold War (1953–1962) NATO and Warsaw Pact troop strengths in Europe in 1959 Khrushchev, Eisenhower and De-Stalinization In 1953, changes in political leadership on both sides shifted the dynamic of the Cold War.[116] Dwight D. Eisenhower was inaugurated president that January. During the last 18 months of the Truman administration, the American defense budget had quadrupled, and Eisenhower moved to reduce military spending by a third while continuing to fight the Cold War effectively.[16] After the death of Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev became the Soviet leader following the deposition and execution of Lavrentiy Beriya and the pushing aside of rivals Georgy Malenkov and Vyacheslav Molotov. On February 25, 1956, Khrushchev shocked delegates to the 20th Congress of the Soviet Communist Party by cataloguing and denouncing Stalin's crimes.[117] As part of a campaign of de-Stalinization, he declared that the only way to reform and move away from Stalin's pol ...
The Cold War was a sustained state of political and military tension between powers in the Western Bloc (the United States with NATO and others) and powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its allies in Warsaw Pact). Historians have not fully agreed on the dates, but 1947–1991 is common. It was "cold" because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, although there were major regional wars in Korea and Vietnam. The Cold War split the temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the USSR and the US as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences over capitalism and democracy. A deliberately neutral grouping arose with the Non-Aligned Movement founded by Egypt, India, and Yugoslavia; this faction rejected association with either the US-led West or the Soviet-led East. The two superpowers never engaged directly in full-scale armed combat but they each armed heavily in preparation of an all-out nuclear World War III. Each side had a nuclear de ...
George Harrison, the Warsaw Pact, the Pony Excess, and more:
Is Russia now a pig in a poke? From CityAM, London 25 February 2014: Intimidated Russia [Re: Russia must back down over Ukraine to avoid a catastrophe, yesterday] The situation with Russia is more complicated than generally appreciated. Suppose the communist system of the USSR had triumphed and that, one by one, European states had applied to join that Union, and were then invited to join the Warsaw Pact. We could now be seeing Siberian troops exercising in Calais. But that is what has happened, in reverse, to Russia. The USSR collapsed, its member states applied to join the EU, but they were then invited to join Nato and accepted; that final part is not fine for Russia. It puts US troops on the Russian border with Poland. Ukraine will likely join Nato, and this will seriously antagonise Russia further. It will respond by getting closer to China and India (you can see the start of this in the Shanghai Cooperation Agreement). None of this is in the UK’s interests. Julian Malins, QC, author of The Serpent ...
A Russian overview of the evolving nightmare in the Ukraine. My take on it is that Russia simply cannot allow the Balkanisation of Ukraine. Has the "impossible to reset" button of war between the U.S. and Russia been pushed? "September summit, said Leonid Savin, Chief Editor of the Geopolitics magazine. “Georgia’s possible admission to NATO means that foreign could bases will appear not far from the Russian border. That might jeopardize stability and security in the entire region. Armenia is planning to join the Customs Union and the Eurasian Union. It will hardly like the prospect of NATO troops and hardware controlling the territory." "Naturally, Russia cannot remain unresponsive to those far-reaching plans. Western politicians are seeking to provoke Moscow into making some rash and ill-considered steps in Ukraine, which would hopefully discredit Russia in the eyes of the world." "The experience of the former Soviet republics and former Warsaw Pact countries which have joined NATO shows that their m ...
I wonder if Kiev will be another Prague. Warsaw pact countries (basically the Soviets) invaded Prague to stop the reforms in 1968. Now with President Viktor F. Yanukovych’s flight and ouster on Saturday, will history repeat itself in the form of the Russians invading Kiev to stabilize the country into its sphere of influence? EU and the US should mobilize in this time of crisis and help the people to the Ukraine achieve autonomy and freedom. Maybe the Ukraine should say the have WMDs. No, that would be risking Operation Kiev Freedom and they wouldn't want that. Maybe they can say, they found petrol in Donestsk.
Some comparisons to place Yanukovych's crimes in perspective: During the Sharpeville Massacre on 21 March 1960 in the South African township of Sharpeville in Transvaal (today part of Gauteng), the South African police opened fire on a crowd of peaceful protesters killing 69 people. During the invasion of Czechoslvakia by the Warsaw Pact armies in August 1968 , 72 Czechs and Slovaks were killed (19 of those in Slovakia), 266 severely wounded and another 436 slightly injured. During Bloody Sunday, sometimes called the Bogside Massacre, on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland, 14 civil-rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army and almost as many wounded. Between 22 January and 21 February 2014, according to as yet incomplete figures, around 90 people were killed in Kyiv, Ukraine, and hundreds injured, most of them protesters, in the struggle to overthrow the Yanukovych regime.
para estudiantes de Procesos Mundiales: Helsinki Accords: Declaration on Human Rights Description The Helsinki Declaration of August 1, 1975 was a turning point in Cold War relations inside European borders. The Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact countries celebrated the acknowledgment of their national boundaries; a desired goal since the end of World War II. West European democracies celebrated the Warsaw Pact countries' willingness to adopt ten major points of international diplomacy. One of the most pivotal of these points was the seventh clause of the treaty, an agreement to uphold human rights. Each East European country promised to protect minority rights, allow religious worship, and grant political and economic freedom for all of their citizens. Each country published the Helsinki Declaration at home, which created a promise of wide reforms if the countries honored this agreement. As citizens throughout Eastern Europe petitioned for their new human rights, a widespread dissident movement against th ...
February 25, 2014 at 07:40AM: Today I thank God for the 23rd anniversary of the disbanding of the Warsaw Pact.
WHO'S PUSHING FOR A NEW Cold War? The Hill asks in a screaming headline this morning, "Putin interested in a second Cold War?" This, after the USA has begun to deploy an ABM system on Russia's borders, and invited a number of former Warsaw Pact nations and Soviet Republics into NATO, for unexplained reasons. When a world leader responds to aggression, it is they, in our propaganda system, who should be pointed out as being too aggressive. this light, President Obama's national security adviser Susan Rice said yesterday it would be a "grave mistake" for Russia to intervene militarily in Ukraine, warning Russia that the USA wants Ukraine to remain undivided. This, after the USA recently invested $50 billion in undermining the Ukraine's democracy, and after Putin has repeatedly stated that he wants the Ukraine to remain undivided. then all the misleading statements from the US government? Well, they are directed to the American public, to convince us that what is happening is the opposite of what is happ ...
Here's a few of my Warsaw Pact force for Cold War commander
Yes some of the scoring in the Olympics was questionable and skating needs to fix their system, but there's no proof it cost the South Korean the gold. And even with their vast athletic talent, cheating is nothing new to Russia. I think it was much worse in the cold-war era when judges from East Germany, Czechoslovakia and other Warsaw pact nations were tools for their USSR puppetmasters.
The Rule of Law and the judiciary as a tool for regional integration: Some early judgements of the Caribbean Court of Justice   Trinidad Cement Ltd. v Guyana [2009] CCJ 1 (OJ); Hummingbird Rice Mills Ltd. v Suriname and the Caribbean Community [2012] CCJ 1 (OJ); Trinidad Cement Ltd. v Caribbean Community [2009] CCJ 4 (OJ)   In modern times, a number of different mechanisms have been used more or less successfully to bring disparate nations together, achieving what could be called regional integration - call it a union, a federation, a bloc, or an empire (the latter term seems to have fallen a bit out of fashion, mind you). One might say that most branches of government have at least one example to their credit, singly or jointly. Ministries of defence, tasked with accomplishing regional integration, tend to go about the business with the least subtlety and their works need no explanation. The Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact provide clear examples of regional integration through force of arms in recent time ...
Today Zbigniew Brzezinski in FT, the WSJ editorial board, and Ulrich Speck in INYT have offered proposals for Western policy on Ukraine (texts below). All three are unrealistic. Several comments: 1. Reminiscent of George Kennan in opposing NATO expansion into former Warsaw Pact territory, Brzezinski argues that Ukraine "must have no participation in any anti-Moscow alliance." Ukrainians would see a policy that denied them an opportunity to join NATO as a betrayal. Ukrainian-Americans, joined by their brothers-in-arms in the politically influential Central and East European coalition, would excoriate any US leaders who backed such a poicy. Senator McCain would do the same. Russians would infer that the West was signaling that Ukraine was fair game for intimidation. 2. WSJ calls on the IMF to make up for Putin's "$15 billion bailout." Political support in the West for this level of aid is unlikely to emerge. Ukrainian reforms will have to make the biggest contribution to restoring the government t ...

Unregulated and unregistered guns sales are an irresponsible loophole for a society that claims to rule by law not force. Your efforts to stop the madness are greatly appreciated Mark. Whether you are an avid hunter or a veteran like myself whose was trained as a 4th echelon armorer in both NATO and Warsaw Pact man portable systems let there be no delusions. Guns are designed for one purpose; to kill. Whether game or men it is by it's very nature an instrument of death. My car was designed for transportation and yet I must report it's purchase or sale, I must obtain license plates and registration to legally operate on public roads, I must purchase insurance to cover any property or injuries my use of the vehicle may cause. But ask the NRA for the same level of ownership responsibility and suddenly it is Glenn Beck and Ted Nugent screaming the government is coming for you with black helicopters and Cuban troops to round us all up in special FEMA internment camps. Thank you again Mark for your efforts and ...
Former Czechoslovak Communist party ideology chief Vasil Bilak, the last surviving hardliner who sent a letter of invitation to Soviet leaders, officially justifying the Warsaw Pact invasion that crushed the Prague Spring reform movement in 1968, has died in Bratislava at the age of 96.

The last remaining signatory to the invitation welcoming the Red Army and the Warsaw Pact troops to Czechoslovakia in 1968, Vasil Bilak, died at the prime age of 96 on Wednesday, 5 February, taking some of the truth to the grave with him. Bilak was the First Secretary of the Communist Party Central
I’m old. I admit it. I’m old enough to remember growing up in Mississippi during desegregation and busing. I remember being in an all-white elementary school until the third grade and suffering the trauma of being bused to a new school where I knew very, very few kids. I remember not really caring about the politics of integration because I was too busy being disturbed and pretty unhappy about losing most of my friends in the move. Being that I am that old, I remember the news reports about the Soviets invading Czechoslovakia in 1968. I remember daily Vietnam War body counts on the Huntley-Brinkley Report at 6 pm. I remember East Germany before the Berlin Wall fell. I remember Checkpoint Charlie. I remember the Warsaw Pact and the hard line, pre-“glasnost” Soviet leaders, Leonid Brezhnev, Yuri Andropov and Konstantin Chernenko. I can remember when China was essentially a closed society and a mystery to the West…at least until Richard Nixon visited there in 1972. I remember the violent suppressio ...
In the question given below, a paragraph is given from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way. The fact that America has not, until now, had a no-first-use policy on nuclear weapons is, like so many elements of its defence policy, an anachronistic holdover from the Cold War. Back when the forces of the Warsaw Pact were arrayed against America, iron upon iron and bastion upon bastion, and poised to pour through the Fulda Gap and sweep across Western Europe, America reserved the option of using nuclear weapons first because the Russkies had an overwhelming superiority in conventional forces. a. America does not need to threaten retaliatory or preemptive nuclear strikes against nations that do not possess nuclear weapons. b. Today there is no conceivable opponent or array of opponents who could pose a substantial threat to America's territory or population. c. America today, for better or worse, spends more on ...
Well, it's official. Today I started what will likely be a very long, likely year long, project, which will develop a new photography course targeted at beginner to intermediate photographers. After a few years of procrastination I finally took day number one. Next step is keeping on task and not giving into fun and laziness, which by putting myself out here with the pressure of expectation, I'm hoping that this will help keep me on track and focused. If you are interested in more about this project, please read the below. --- As some of you know, I've been an instructor, trainer, professor, etc., many times on and off throughout my life. I've trained and taught many subjects ranging from technology, photography, naval combat in the Warsaw Pact era, small arms, and more, within environments ranging from formal classrooms to field instruction in foreign nations. I've decided to put all of this prior experience into a new photography course project. Most budding, and even experienced, photographers I know h ...

cant believe wvu cancelled classes, they havent done that since the Warsaw pact of 1955
The global power Balance.    Power blocs     International relations are therefore about competition, conflict or cooperation among states. The three Cs produce a global political picture, which is either dominated by one super power or a group of states that become a super power bloc or a scenario where power is evenly distributed between two or more blocs or centres. When the Roman empire of the Caesers came into being by about 160 BC there was no power on earth strong enough to challenge its hegemony for almost six hundred years up to about 530 AD.  Global Power was concentrated in that one super state and it was a uni-polar global power arrangement. When pagan Rome collapsed the world stage was again dominated by Papal power the so called Holy Roman Empire for almost 1300 years up to 1789. Papal power was however effectively challenged by Frances’ Napoleon Bonarparte and from that time to the end of the second world war power concentration was widely dispersed among European and Asian nations ...
Goldstein, Eric. Wars and Peace Treaties, 1816-1991. London and New York: Routledge, 1992. The Congress of Vienna created the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the Kingdom of Belgium, also the Grand Dukedom of Luxembourg. There transpired in 1830-1833 a revolt which became a Belgian-Dutch War. It started at the opera with the song Amour sacre de la patrie, 25 August 1830 after which the flag was carried from the theatre building with 14,000 strong Dutch Army fighting for 3 days on behalf of the Flemish until armistice 4 November 1830 and in 1839 Belgium was created alongside the Netherlands with finality and closure. The war is thought of as religious conflict between Protestant Dutch and Catholic French Belgian majority. The war was between the House of Orange which used 50,000 troops altogether in the said conflict and 25,000 Belgians on side of Saxe-Cobourgs, France with 60,000 troops assisting against the Netherlands. The London Conference followed which proposed a peace accepted by the Belgians already ...

The T-72 was the most common tank used by the Warsaw Pact from the 1970s to the collapse of the Soviet Union. It was also exported to other countries, such as Finland, India , Iran, Iraq , Syria and Yugoslavia , as well as being copied elsewhere, both with and without licenses.

HYPHENATED (part 3) the Yale man. When Dad was in the Senate, a doctor from one Greencastle used to let us have his seats at the Indianapolis 500. One year he showed up surriptiously, we kids had never met him, and is sitting there spitting into a soup can as he chewed his tobacco. Other than the tobacco, he looked dignified like a doctor would. I never attempted Yale. Unlike others in my class that majored in home-ec or business, I took calculus. Mr. Weir did not give A's. I was good in sports, but Miss Ellis passed me in typing, because she kept helping after class all the time. One thing I did do was go to intel school. The Air Force used to have Crissis Situations where the whole Warsaw Pact was caving in on you. You had to keep your head and pick your way out to daylight. As a struggling Realtor in a community where everyone was a stranger, I had to pick myself up and walk to the daylight.

Sochi Superbowl: Ukraine vs. Moscow. Winner decides if Ukraine enters Eurozone or Warsaw Pact. Peyton to play for Ukraine.
In the 1960s military intelligence was training us to be linguists in all the Warsaw Pact languages. And while we were deployed at "forward undisclosed bases" we became familiar and interested in all these countries. So it has been interesting to me that: 1. In 1995, Gail Halvorsen (the Berlin Candy Bomber) served a Mormon mission in St Petersburg. 2. In 2001 my cousin's future son-in-law served a mission in Romania. (After my Romanian had rusted for 40 years, I could not keep up with him when he started chattering away.) 3. In 2003 a friend went on a service mission to Moldova - that disputed piece of land between Romania and Ukraine which declared it's independence in 1991. Interestingly, even though Romania claimed the land, most spoke Russian. 4. A young man in our church ward is on his mission in Budapest. 5. His younger brother will soon go on a mission to Albania-Herzegovina.
Don't worry - tomorrow we can go back to playing. But Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany and the Warsaw Pact nations and even the DPRK all started somewhere and in all of them, the populace said, "it won't get that bad". Shouldn't we be doing something about this?
Heres a question, if the life span of B.A.O.R. soldier was measured in minutes in the event of a Warsaw pact invasion, how long was the life span of a Berlin Brigade soldier?

An interesting observation from one political forum: "As long as post-Soviet Russia still maintains the Petersburg/Leningrad mentality - push right up to the border, and then accuse anyone coming withing 500 miles of the border of trying to start a war - it demonstrates why buffer states like Ukraine are so important. Post-Soviet Russia is a uniquely bad neighbor. Whatever their faults, Germany and France don't constantly engage in saber rattling or complain to each other about how close their neighbors military forces are to their border. Post-Soviet Russia is Europe's version of the *** ghetto - while playing lip service to the need to be polite, everyone recognizes the practical necessity and great value of keeping it as far away as possible. Europe understands that. We all remember the days the Soviet Union held all Eastern Europe in a captive military(called the Warsaw Pact)/economic pact, stationing nuclear weapons 200 miles from Holland and keeping all of Eastern Europe producing nothing more use . ...
Well, not the USSR, actually. Just Warsaw Pact/invaded NATO territory.

Prospective delegates of the Historic Security Council of VITCMUN 2014, Please find attached the updated country list of the HSC. There will be as usual 5 permanent members, 10 non-permanent members and 12 observers present in this conference.

Excellent article by Macwhirter Currency options promising for an independent Scotland Iain Macwhirter Thursday 30 January 2014 Herald In Prague, the museum of communism is located in a busy shopping street, sandwiched between a branch of McDonald's and a casino: a suitably humiliating juxtaposition for a discredited political system swept away by the Velvet Revolution. It's hard indeed to believe that, only 25 years ago, Czechoslovakia was a police state and part of the Warsaw Pact. It's hard to believe Czechoslovakia was a state at all as, 20 years ago, the Czech Republic and Slovakia went their separate ways in the Velvet Divorce and have never looked back. Czechoslovakia has been wiped from the collective memory more completely than by the Russian tanks that rumbled through the Prague Spring. When I recently visited Prague, a city that seems to combine the best of Edinburgh and Glasgow, there was no visible sign of the old regime; except, surprisingly, in the currency. In this extraordinary city you . ...

Why Canada should support Ukraine’s democratic protesters Ukraine today is poised between the establishment of a deeply rooted, hard-earned democracy and a return to bare-knuckle authoritarianism. The outcome is critical for Ukraine, of course, and the Ukrainian diaspora around the world, but it will also have a powerful demonstration effect in Russia, other former Soviet republics, and everywhere in the world where civil society is struggling against dictatorship. What happens in Ukraine matters to the prospects for democracy around the world. The good news is that we can make a difference. In Ukraine, we are seeing the struggle for human dignity, for the rule of law, for freedom of expression and association in its clearest form. The protesters have renamed the square in downtown Kiev which is their epicentre the Euromaidan, or Euro-square, and their vigil was provoked by President Viktor Yanukovych’s eleventh-hour rejection of a European Association agreement – which would bring the country close ...
Dear friends and brethren, I contemplate the Cold War between the United States of America and the Warsaw Pact Countries sitting on another continent. I first became aware of this foe during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when this world nearly went to war at a nuclear level. I do not know if it was staged or not as things today are staged and portrayed to the American People as being "just", as these previous wars have shown on every level to be unjust from the beginning. When stationed at Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany, I was assigned the extra duty of Medical Decontamination Team Chief. Should war occur, and battle field injuries come our way, whether of bullet, bomb, or chemical agent, it was the responsibility of the Decon Team to make sure that person was not contaminated, but if found to be, remove every bit off that casualty before they could be taken to the Triage area. Now that I look back, I remember one important conclusion. We would be in serious, if not deadly trouble. Firstly. We would be hit w ...

AN UNFORTUNATE FINNISH FACT? If it was not for Adolph Hitler and the German Nazi military, Finland would have, I think, fallen to Stalin and the *** Soviets, who surely would not only have incorporated Finland into the Warsaw Pact, but, in his monstrous fashion, inflicted reprisals on us for the Winter War that defy description. How's that for a sentence/paragraph? Hitler did that for us, and we all know what he was? Well, some of us do. The ones that make political analogies between Hitler and current North American politicians are simply stupid. All countries have *** that think they ain't. Eventually we kicked him out, but not before he slashed and burned northern Finland in his retreat through Sweden. Now we were fighting both the Russians and the Germans! *** That's tough! As a matter of fact, Canada and Finland were enemies due to the allies pact with the Soviet Union. Our forces never met, but there it is. We would have, reluctantly, fough Canada and, I think, won. We were fighting for our Fa ...
A Lost B-52 and A Missing MK-39 January 24th was a Tuesday that year. The previous Friday, JFK had been sworn into office. The first sign of trouble arrived just after midnight when the fuel leak was discovered. Barely four days on the job, one wonders if someone had to wake the new commander-in-chief in the middle of the night over this. Times were much different then. The mission was as "routine" as missions were during the Cold War. Even as I type it out, the phrase "Cold War" seems to begin to slip into the sands of time. Yet the threats, real or perceived, were serious. The Cold War is generally considered to have run from roughly 1947 through December of 1991. You've heard the phrase that "every new beginning is some other new beginning's end"? Well, the end of World War Two was the impetus for the beginning of the Cold War. Now that the war was over, what do we do? Where should the borders be drawn? Who remains to occupy Germany? Europe? Who will have more influence in the new world, the West (US, ...
Clip shows British band playing in Prague moments before 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia
A Soviet T-62 Obr.1960 or Obr.1967 smashing through a hotel during the Warsaw Pact invasion and occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968. Which would last until the end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Frankly, it's repugnant to use a tank for a political crackdown much less using it on the population of an "allied" nation.
I suppose we are all, to some extent, beneficiaries of such manifestos, whether implemented or not. Just as we benefited from the existence of the Soviet Union, even though barely a shot was fired between the Warsaw Pact and NATO. Its presence was enough to accelerate the liberal reforms demanded of the old order. Evolution is ultimately stronger and its legacy more robust than revolution - it just sometimes needs a bit of a shove in the right direction.
In 1981, new U.S. President Ronald Reagan declared Gaddafi the "mad dog of the Middle East." Reagan erroneously considered Gaddafi a pawn of the Soviet Union. In truth, the Soviets were just as wary of Gaddafi, but Gaddafi antagonized Reagan by visiting Moscow and threatening to join the Warsaw Pact. Reagan closed the Libyan embassy in Washington, implemented an embargo of Libyan oil, and prohibited U.S. companies from doing business in Libya. The U.S. and Libyan militaries had several small skirmishes as Reagan ordered the U.S. military to perform exercises in the Gulf of Sirte (or Sidra), just off the coast of Libya in the Mediterranean Sea. Finally, on April 15, 1986, the U.S. military conducted a series of air strikes on Libya, bombing military installations, killing around 100 Libyans, and targeting Gaddafi's home — which injured two of his sons. The U.S. was condemned internationally, but Reagan was lauded at home. Meanwhile, the incident caused Arab nations to become sympathetic to Gaddafi. In 19 ...
So see the section on Warsaw Pact and right when I enter CIA I am reading every communist collective directive but all growing up whatever is happening in Russia I know about and am being instructed in. Like I showed President Obama how to read the Russian news papers and amused us generals with breaking their codes. That's was next: playing Alice in Wonderland and stepping through the looking glass. So that's beginning actually CIA 101.
From Soviet Forces Cuba to Division Cuba As long as were on the topic of the Mexican Invasion of ’98, we might want to take a poke at the so-called Division Cuba- the ad hoc military formation made up of Soviet and east-bloc personnel stationed in Cuba when war breaks out between NATO and the Warsaw Pact in ’96. According to canon, these guys seem to be the spearhead of the Mexican 4th Army’s invasion of Texas. They seem to perform pretty well, even holding off the US 49th Armored Division during the 5th Army’s attempt to retake Texas in ’99. So who are these guys? And how many were there to start with before they are whittled down the San Antonio cantonment of 3,000 men, 15 tanks, and a handful of fuel-starved Hind-D helicopters? Back during the Cuban Missile Crisis of ’62, the Soviets has something like 40,000 combat troops in Cuba (the CIA’s estimate at the time was 10,000 and didn’t know the Soviets had deployed short range nuclear artillery to the island. Oops.). Later in 1979 there s ...
NATO (ˈneɪtəʊ) or Nato n acronym for 1.

On this day in 1969,Jan Pallach died after setting himself on fire in protest against the Russian invasion.He burnt a torch against the Warsaw Pact.
His pontificate took place during many significant world events, e.g. the John F. Kennedy assassination of late 1963, the Vietnam War, the student revolts, the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, the continued breakup of the British Empire, the continued push for civil rights in the US and the advent of the contraceptive pill, legal abortion and homosexual rights movements in many countries in the wake of their sexual revolutions. Paul VI died on 6 August 1978, the Feast of the Transfiguration, in Castel Gandolfo after a period of ill health. As per his will, he was buried in the grottos of the Vatican not in an ornate tomb, but a grave in the ground as he wished. The diocesan process for beatification of Paul VI began on 11 May 1993, and so he was given the title "Servant of God". Se tornasse "Dio" li manderebbe tutti a cagare i Papi, tranne uno, Celestino, se corrisponde a quello citato nella Profezia di Celestino.
Prague Spring begins in Czechoslovakia January 5, 1968: the Stalinist ruler of Czechoslovakia, is succeeded as first secretary by Alexander Dubcek, a Slovak who supports liberal reforms. In the first few months of his rule, Dubcek introduced a series of far-reaching political and economic reforms, including increased freedom of speech and the rehabilitation of political dissidents. Dubcek's effort to establish "communism with a human face" was celebrated across the country, and the brief period of freedom became known as the "Prague Spring." On August 20, 1968, the Soviet Union answered Dubcek's reforms with invasion of Czechoslovakia by 600,000 Warsaw Pact troops. Prague was not eager to give way, but scattered student resistance was no match for Soviet tanks. Dubcek's reforms were repealed, and the leader himself was replaced with the staunchly pro-Soviet Gustav Husak, who re-established an authoritarian Communist regime in the country. In 1989, as Communist governments folded across Eastern Europe, P . ...

Tribute to a Great Man Former President of Czech Republic: Vaclav Havel ( 5 October 1936 – 18 October 2011) "...we never decided to become dissidents. We have been transformed into them, without quite knowing how, sometimes we have ended up in prison without precisely knowing how. We simply went ahead and did certain things that we felt we ought to do, and that seemed to us decent to do, nothing more nor less." Vaclav Havel 1979 Words of a man that fought tirelessly to end communist occupation of the Czechoslovakia and was countlessly arrested, tortured and harassed by the secret police for his political activism. During his tenure as President of Czechoslovakia and later Czech Republic, Vaclav Havel was a person surrounded by controversy and ambivalence amongst his native populace but managed to bring about political stability after forty years of communist rule as well as achieve the restructuring of the Czech economy and the integration of the Czech Nation into the international community such as the ...
Hi George, Tsar Putin certainly understands power diplomacy and he wields it well too! “US, Nato express concern over Russian Missile deployment near border.” Ukraine has been getting uppity lately while Europe is bending literally over backwards to defuse potential volatile regional confrontations in a way bot seen since 1936 in Munich. Russia sees this pacifism as a golden opportunity to extend its military influence without the risk of serious U.S. or European confrontation, while deftly positioning the hammer (missiles) that could insure favorably high prices on Russian oil and gas for decades to come. Who just who is going to do anything about it? If the current trend continues, America will eventually retract to its pre-WWII isolationist posture in Europe and the Middle East while Putin jumps in the drivers seat in those key areas. Look also for more aggressive Russian economic and military expansionism at the expense of America, the Warsaw Pact countries and a vulnerable EU. Meanwhile, Syria, E ...

Propaganda is what I termed this statement!! ANGOLA AND SOUTH WEST AFRICA: A FORGOTTEN WAR (1975-89) Debay, Yves (Text) Source: Raids magazine. No. 44 July 1995 ISSN 0963-1852 PP. 20-23, 41. 1975 was a particularly bad year for the western world: Saigon and Phnom Penh fell into communist hands while, after a sudden about-face in western Africa, the Soviets turned away from their Somali allies to back instead the new Ethiopian rulers who had declared themselves loyal to Moscow. Soon, the communist dictators of several other African countries, Tanzania, the People’s Republic of Congo, Madagascar and Guinea, gave the Russians the support bases they needed to take over the dark continent. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic and still reeling from the Vietnam trauma, the Americans led by President Jimmy Carter stood by powerlessly, reluctant to be drawn yet again into a foreign military venture despite the seemingly inexorable communist expansion across the third world. Concurrently, a pacifist movement animated ...
On December 13, 1981, thirty-two years ago, General Jaruzelski imposed a “state of war” on his own nation. After August 1980 and the sixteen-month “carnival of freedom” brought by the Solidarity movement, there was hope that maybe the Polish people could live outside Soviet domination. Jaruzelski made the population hostage again to communism and the Warsaw Pact. People rightly remember today the triumph of Solidarity in 1988-89 --- but the ‘80s were a decade of unnecessary repression and suffering whose crimes have never been accounted for. The Committee in Support of Solidarity was created on that fateful day and our documentation of that decade’s repression and resistance can be found in the CSS’s archives that were recently deposited at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. I recently came across again Zygmunt Malinowski's photo-journal of the demonstrations we and the AFL-CIO organized in his “New York: City of Solidarity” (Wydawca Fundacja Centrum Solidarnosci: 2005) and t ...
The Soviet Union supported Bangladesh and Indian armies, as well as the Mukti Bahini during the war, recognising that the independence of Bangladesh would weaken the position of its rivals – the United States and China. It gave assurances to India that if a confrontation with the United States or China developed, the USSR would take countermeasures. This was enshrined in the Indo-Soviet friendship treaty signed in August 1971. The Soviets also sent a nuclear submarine to ward off the threat posed by USS Enterprise in the Indian Ocean. At the end of the war, the Warsaw Pact countries were among the first to recognise Bangladesh. The Soviet Union accorded recognition to Bangladesh on 25 January 1972. The United States delayed recognition for some months, before according it on 8 April 1972.

The AK-47 and its variants can be seen as a lot of things—amoral massacre machines, pop-culture icons, the most plentiful and influential weaponry of the past half century. But the gun can also be viewed as one of the most disruptive technologies ever. Quickly transcending the purposes and borders of the highly centralized state that created it, the AK-47 gives individuals and small groups a lethality that previously belonged only to rigidly organized and well-financed militaries. What it may have lacked in precision and power it has made up for in ease of use, cost, reliability, and readily available parts and ammunition. It has helped ensure that even the poor, the small-statured, the dim-witted, the illiterate, and the untrained are able to acquire weapons and keep them functioning. The AK-47′s rise was enabled by a government-led manufacturing push. Throughout the 1950s, the Kremlin shared its new rifles with like-minded states and ordered its Warsaw Pact vassals to produce them. By the 1960s, fac ...

“Shoot!” screamed the man in thee blue overalls; Emil Gallo, a municipal plumber in Bratislava, shouted abuse at the crew of a Soveit T-55 tank and tore his shirt open, ready to give his life. The photo, almost a sister image to the Tank Man photo that came out from Beijing 31 years later, was one of the most iconic images of the Prague Spring. On August 21, 1968, tanks from Russia and four other Warsaw Pact countries rolled into Czechoslovakia to put down the Prague Spring – a period of political liberalization under Alexander Dubcek. Ladislav Bielik, the photographer who captured the scene, works for the local newspaper Smena. Together with his colleagues, he printed a clandestine edition of the newspaper with this photo on the front page. A copy of the film reached the German Press Agency on the same day, and the photo was published around the world, although often went falsely or non attributed. After the revolution failed, Bielik remained in Czechoslovakia, but this meant the end of professiona ...

Here is another a documentary that I find interesting. This one on one of the most hated tyrants of the 20th Century, the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. From 1965 to his execution in 1989, he was the absolute ruler of the Romanian people and like both Kim Il-Sung & Pol Pot, developed a Stalin-like style of communism (complete with a massive personality cult to brainwash the population) but which also had strong nationalistic themes and messages. Of all the Eastern Bloc communist leaders of all the Warsaw Pact countries that came to power after Stalin's death, Ceausescu was the worst. His cruelty, and that his wife Elena, knew no limits, and established one of the most notorious secret police forces ever seen. Ceausescu was hated by his own people and many world leaders: Mikhail Gorbachev despised him and despite the polite appearances given in the program, The Queen hated having to received him. She hated greeting Ceausescu because of what the Romanian communists had done to her heroic cousin King . ...
The United States and the Soviet Union jockeyed for power after World War II during the Cold War, dominating the military affairs of Europe through NATO and the Warsaw Pact, respectively. While they engaged in proxy wars and developed powerful nuclear arsenals, the two countries avoided direct military conflict. The U.S. often opposed Third World left-wing movements that it viewed as Soviet-sponsored. American troops fought Communist Chinese and North Korean forces in the Korean War of 1950–53. The House Un-American Activities Committee pursued a series of investigations into suspected leftist subversion, while Senator Joseph McCarthy became the figurehead of anticommunist sentiment.[130]

Praying for the nations: Hungary ~ 13 Dec 2013   Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.  He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.     Background:  Hungary became a Christian kingdom in A.D. 1000 and for many centuries served as a bulwark against Ottoman Turkish expansion in Europe. The kingdom eventually became part of the polyglot Austro-Hungarian Empire, which collapsed during World War I. The country fell under Communist rule following World War II. In 1956, a revolt and an announced withdrawal from the Warsaw Pact were met with a massive military intervention by Moscow. Under the leadership of Janos KADAR in 1968, Hungary began liberalizing its economy, introducing so-called "Goulash Communism." Hungary held its first multiparty elections in 1990 and initiated a free market economy. It joined NATO in 1999 and the EU five years later. In 2011, Hungary assumed the six-month rotating pres ...

If not 6 million ... where did they all go? On several occasions I mentioned that during my travels I came across "secret Jewish neighborhoods" filled to the brim with those who were the victims of the so-called Holocaust. Such communities could be found both in the US and Argentina for example and it was unmistakable. In many cases they were vacation communities consisting on lake front summer homes paid for by reparations money from Germany and Austria. Imagine being paid reparations checks every month ... tax free ... with which you can finance plush vacation homes around the globe! Well, I knew some of these people. Officially they were dead. But wait a second .. their numbers didn't amount to 6 million though all told. . A recent German article though sheds an interesting light on where a sizable number of other "gassed" Jews ended up.

NATO was formed 1949. Warsaw Pact not until 1955. Anyone thinking NATO was in response to the WP is delusional.

Historical development of International law: International law reflects the establishment and subsequent modification of a world system founded almost exclusively on the notion that independent sovereign states are the only relevant actors in the international system. The essential structure of international law was mapped out during the European Renaissance, though its origins lay deep in history and can be traced to cooperative agreements between peoples in the ancient Middle East. Among the earliest of these agreements were a treaty between the rulers of Lagash and Umma (in the area of Mesopotamia) in approximately 2100 bce and an agreement between the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II and Hattusilis III, the king of the Hittites, concluded in 1258 bce. A number of pacts were subsequently negotiated by various Middle Eastern empires. The long and rich cultural traditions of ancient Israel, the Indian subcontinent, and China were also vital in the development of international law. In addition, basic notions of ...
If you've ever sat around thinking “What if Superman was a communist?” Well, wonder no more. The answer was masterfully provided in Superman: Red Son written by famed comic book writer and member of the “Most Excellent Order of the British Empire”, Mark Millar. The specific comic book in question was a mini-series (3 issues) published by DC Comics in 2003 and is a true gem of comic art. For this mini-series, Millar came up with a unique and brilliant concept. In his own words, "Instead of landing in Kansas as a child, I’ve decided to explore what could have happened if his rocket would have landed on a collective farm in the Soviet Union. Instead of working for the Daily Planet, he’ll be a reporter for Pravda. There’s a reversal of the current situation, this time it’s the U.S.A. that’s splitting up with Georgia and Louisiana demanding independence – tanks rolling through the streets of New Orleans. I’ll be including a whole bunch of DC characters, like Batman and Green Lantern – w ...
OBAMA AND THE MILITARY Prepared to Cut or Abandon Missile Defense Funding Obama has consistently opposed America's active pursuit of a missile defense system. In a February 2008 campaign ad, he stated: “I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space.” In June 2009, President Obama submitted to Congress a defense budget for fiscal year 2010 that called for cutting $1.4 billion from the Missile Defense Agency. On September 17, 2009—the 70th anniversary of the day the Soviet Union invaded Poland in 1939—the Obama administration, bowing to intense pressure from Russia, abandoned proposals (forged during the Bush administration) to set up a missile defense shield in Europe. CNS News reported: “The move will resonate in Poland and the Czech Republic, where governments weathered domestic unease and Russian fury by signing agreements with the Bush administration in 2008 to host elements of the system.

Something for the buy local crowd to think about: "The Economy of Mali is based to a large extent on agriculture, with a mostly rural population, many of whom are engaged in subsistence agriculture. Mali is among the ten poorest nations of the world, is one of the 37 Heavily Indebted Poor Countries, and is a major recipient of foreign aid from many sources, including multilateral organizations (most significantly the World Bank, African Development Bank, and Arab Funds), and bilateral programs funded by the European Union, France, United States, Canada, Netherlands, and Germany. Before 1991, the former Soviet Union, China and the Warsaw Pact countries had been a major source of economic and military aid. The per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of Mali was $820 in 1999. Mali's great potential wealth lies in mining and the production of agricultural commodities, livestock, and fish. The most productive agricultural area lies along the banks of the Niger River, the Inner Niger Delta and the southwestern ...
Now over the years, I have held a commercial drivers license with a hazmat endorsement as well as a passenger endorsement. This means I was licensed to drive a semi as well as a bus. I have also held a military drivers license with the all NATO and Warsaw Pact vehicles endorsement. This basically meant that if it was owned by pretty much any military on the planet, I was allowed to drive it, if necessary. I have driven in rain storms nasty enough to make a fish head for cover and snowstorms that make polar bears book winter vacations in Mexico. I'm not bragging, just stating a fact. This being said, the driving conditions on my way home truly stunk. Snow covering black ice on main roads and side streets. 20+ steady winds and heavy snow. So I made my way home doing between 25 and 30 mph at best.

My favorite Tom Clancy novel was "Red Storm Rising". It was released in 1986 during the actual decades old Cold War between NATO (USA, Britain, etc.) & the Warsaw Pact (Soviet Union, etc.). Although an interesting read today, this book was an eye-opening read for those, like me, who read this novel during the Cold War. What impressed me was how fragile Europe was at that time. RIP Tom Clancy.

I have not posted on this subject in a while so I'm going to do it again to keep it fresh in everyone's mind with everything that's going on. No empire has stood the test of time. There are 12 steps each empire goes through. 1. Escape From Tyranny Through Revolution Or Civil War Every empire begins from the ashes of either a civil war or revolution which results from the unacceptable societal, economic or political conditions preceeding it. In America, we had the Revolutionary War, which was brought about as the colonists sought to escape religious persecution. It could also be an economically-inspired uprising such as the worker's rebellion in the Soviet Union, leading the rise of the "utopian" Marxist state. 2. Dawn Of The Age Of Idealism, Hope And A New Political Doctrine In the United States, the American Revolution led to the writing of the Constitution, probably the greatest document ever written. In the Soviet Union, by comparison, Karl Marx' "Das Kapital", outlined the ideal worker's state wh ...
After the demise of the USSR and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact , NATO, instead of reciprocating good intentions, went on an aggressive expansion eastward and northward incorporating the Baltic States to achieve an encirclement of Russia. Finally President Putin is reclaiming Russia's rightful geopolitical place. The US and its NATO allies understand only force. It was only such a demonstration of force that brought Obama to the negotiating table on Syria. This is applauded by 90% of the world's peoples. They are tired of the brutal NWO imposed on them, whether with brute force or economically.

Former IAF commander, David Ivri would later recall a meeting with a high-ranking member of the Warsaw Pact, in which he was told that the dominance of Israeli and U.S. technology and tactics during the war was one of the factors that changed Soviet mind-set, leading to Glasnost and ultimately, the fall of the Soviet Union.[58][60] However, the Syrians claimed the opposite, saying that their T-72s were highly effective and that none were lost.[61]
As of January 1996 the launching of nuclear warheads rests with the President of the USA, not the Navy sub or any other nuclear facilities of the USA. Ask yourself why does the USA pick at the Russian president who has the same authority. Why does the USA enter a new phase of the Cold War that was over 10 years ago, when the USSR ended and the Warsaw Pact ended. It was not defeated. It went bankrupt. The answer sits with Obama. Not with Putin. If you are not uncomfy yet, you should be. And stop this insanity. Take notice the German government can no longer afford to support Greece, and the Euro. In that balance there are millions of victims. Here is your choice: supporting millions of radical muslims, and influx to the USA, or not. The evil borg totally believe we will all be assimulated and to resist is futile. What do you believe? And what difference does it make? There's nothing racist about this comment; it is the measure of the quality of the character. Decide now.
So today the U.S. and Russia negotiated a weapons surrender to end the Cuban Missile Crisis, the U.S. surrendered to Vietnam, and the entire Non-Aligned Movement joined the Warsaw Pact. But in all, a wildly successful and fun role-playing game. I can't wait to play again.
“Americans, including American servicemen, were imprisoned in the former Soviet Union. The Soviets and their Warsaw Pact allies even transferred some of these Americans from satellite states such as the German Democratic Republic, to the Soviet Union, where they were detained. However, despite our extensive efforts, we have not yet acquired definitive, verifiable information that would allow us to determine the scope of such transfers or the ultimate fates of those whose lives were directly affected by them.” – From the Gulag Study 5th Edition prepared by the Joint Commission Support Directorate

This weekend Deanie and I joined our NATO counterparts in Budapest, Hungary for the Military Committee Conference. We discussed security challenges around the world, common interests, and the role of the NATO alliance. The conference was conducted against the backdrop of this beautiful city on the Danube. It's worth remembering that only a generation ago, Hungary was a member of the Warsaw Pact. As a young officer I trained to face that alliance on the field of battle. Now Hungary is a member of our alliance and a terrific partner. Our friends and allies are among the many things that make us exceptional. — NATO Conference in Budapest - Sept. 2013 (7 photos)
