What is happening on the streets of Kiev right now is really a proxy war between the East and the West. On the one side you have the USSA and the EUSSR, which are quite determined to bring Ukraine under their sphere of influence. On the other side you have Russia (the former USSR), which is quite determined to keep Ukraine out of the EU and out of NATO. In addition, Russia is extremely concerned about the strategic natural gas pipelines that go through Ukraine that transport gas from Russia to the rest of Europe. Ultimately, it is not in the interest of the people of Ukraine to be dominated by either side, but that is going to be what ends up happening. The Cold War is playing out on the streets of Kiev as you read this, and this conflict is going to greatly increase tensions between the East and the West. As these tensions continue to rise, someday this Cold War could actually end up sparking a real war between the superpowers.
Am I to believe that I have wasted forty years of my life in this country trying to explain the nature of dictatorship and what it meant to have been born and lived in Stalin’s paradise the first half of my life?
Have I failed to pass on to you my first-hand knowledge of the misery of millions of those gullible, trusting Russian people, who fell prey to the fiery, well-rehearsed speeches of those eloquent Marxist social-revolutionaries, who promised fraternity, equal rights, free medicine, free education for all, good life, and sharing the wealth of the rich only to find themselves trapped for life in that socialist, inhuman, criminal “experiment.” What did the Russians get instead? Lies, empty promises, high unemployment, and more lies.
