“Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits” – Part II, by Rufus Magister

Last week we published the first part of this article. We feel it is very important to dispel myths, correct wrongs and attempt to at least present the past with some integrity.

The one sided “Soviet Union was evil” narrative has corrupted far too many minds and has denied an equally greater number to ever actually know or even begin to understand the Russian people.

But how does one achieve this? How do you reverse decades of poisoning the mind? Well, we do not know but it surely must begin with presenting the truth.

We are grateful to Rufus for undertaking this excellent piece of work!

Observations on the Progressive Nature of the Soviet Union and its Inheritance by the Russian Federation (Continued)

The Soviet Union & the Cold War in Latin America

If we turn our attention to Washington’s oldest sphere of influence, the Americas, the results are equally stark.  While the Monroe Doctrine might have been a progressive step when first articulated, peoples from Mexico in North America through El Salvador and Honduras in Central America to Chile in South America have all suffered in more recent times.

The origins of the doctrine lie in the post-Napoleonic period.  Under the influence of the American and French revolutions, the Spanish colonies had fought and won their independence.  Spain desired these possessions back.  The British, anxious to extend their long-standing economic exploitation of these regions (they had held the asiento, the monopoly on providing slaves to Spanish colonies, for several decades in the early 1700’s), approached Washington with a suggestion to of a joint declaration guaranteeing these states their independence.  At that time the “special relationship” between the United Kingdom and its rebellious colony had not yet emerged.  The Revolution and the War of 1812 had produced substantial dislike of the British, and so President Monroe in 1823 expanded the idea to a individual proclamation that Washington would tolerate no outside interference in the Western Hemisphere.

Serbian Saker Blog Joins The Saker Community

Dear friends,

I have the pleasure to inform our community that the Serbian Saker Blog is now officially online at the following address:

http://www.thesakersrpski.rs/

This blog also contains a large archives of my previous articles all translated into Serbian.

I am especially honored and delighted to welcome the entire Serbian Saker Blog Team to the Saker community because of the obvious (and frightening) similarities between the events of the US/NATO war against Serbia in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo with what is taking place today in the Ukraine.  In fact, there were Serbian “Krajinas” in Croatia (and Bosnia) and the Serbian language toponym krajina (meaning “frontier” from krai “region/border”) has exactly the same root and usage as the Russian ukraina (u meaning “by the” or “near the” and kraina meaning border/edge/region). Finally, US officials have now admitted that the real purpose of the AngloZionist war on Serbia was to send a message to Russia “disobey us and we will do the same to you”, which is what they are doing now, of course.  The war against Serbia was just a rehearsal for the current war against Russia.

Russians, Ukrainians and all those who truly care for the truth and who reject the Empire’s lies-filled narrative about the wars against Serbia and Russia have a lot to learn form the Serbian experience and I hope that thanks to the Serbian Saker Blog a lot of Serbs will join the Saker community and the rest of the anti-imperialist movement.

I consider restoring the historical truth about the AngloZionist wars against the Serbian people as a personal life mission of mine and an integral part of this blog’s purpose.
