"Sorry Chump, You Didn't Have It In Writing"

Via 4Branch

At a time when the United States is convulsed by anti-Russian hysteria and demonization of Vladimir Putin, a trove of recently declassified Cold War documents reveals the astounding extent of the lies, duplicity and double-dealing engaged in by the western powers with the collapsing Soviet Union in 1990.

I was covering Moscow in those days and met some of the key players in this sordid drama.  

Ever since, I’ve been writing that the Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Foreign Minister, Eduard Shevardnadze, were shamelessly lied to and deceived by the United States, Britain, and their appendage, NATO.

  1. I won't call this article a load of horse shit but it is. Firstly the author conveniently ignores the one promise that was kept that never should have been made. Namely that not a single communist nor communism itself was held accountable for 70+ years of crimes against humanity. The size and cruelty of the Gulag Archipelago, the number of victims surpassed anything the Nazis did. Stalin slaughtered more Ukrainians than Hitler did Jews all before Hitler came to power. The mass executions started under Lenin and the organized slave labor didn't end until the Red flag was lowered from above the Kremlin's walls. Secondly neither G.H.W. Bush or anyone else had of has the right to cede the sovereign rights of Poland or any of the newly freed nations of central Europe.If they choose to join an alliance to protect themselvesfrom a nation that had subjected them to nearly half a century of military occupation that is their sovereign right to do decide. It's certainly not the right of a collasing occupier to tell them they can't.
