A Postcard from that Special Hell called “Russia”

Is Russia the very worst place on this planet?

We challenge you to carefully read our original translation published below in this issue, thoughtfully reflect (if you dare) on the photographs published along with it, and come to any other conclusion.

Vladimir Putin’s Russia is hell on earth.

The translation tells the story of a courageous band of human rights activists from the Memorial and Human Rights Watch organizations who traveled to a forest on the border of Ingushetia and Chechnya to discovery a truly bone-chilling example of Russian barbarism:  A quartet of young civilians brutally murdered by Russian forces while collecting vegetables to sustain their impoverished families through a brutal winter.

Not even the Russian authorities can dare to suggest that these young men were combatants. They were innocent, simple village people barbarically murdered by the savages who pretend to be Russian soldiers, savages who are carrying out acts that give the lie to Putin’s claims about having brought peace and stability to the region.  These savages do not just murder their defenseless, unarmed victims with automatic weapons fire, they mutilate them, as if a pack of wild dogs ripping apart a helpless fawn.

Chechnya’s human rights ombudsman condemned the killings, stating he did not believe the official government rationalizations:  “Our doubts are based on the fact that dozens and hundreds of crimes committed by the (Russian) military against civilians in Chechnya have not been investigated.”  Shamefully, many initial Western reports totally ignored the civilian casualties, blindly parroting Kremlin propaganda. But a later report from Reuters quotes Memorial’s Alexander Cherkasov denouncing the government’s lies about the killings: “They are not, as authorities claimed, the victims of crossfire.”  It also notes that Memorial’s reporting has even made a dent on the Russian press:  “Popular daily Moskovsky Komsomolets, which featured the four civilians’ deaths on its front page Monday, wrote in uncharacteristic criticism of the government: ‘It’s simple: Destroy militants with disregard for peaceful citizens. As it always is and always has been.'”   You know how far over the line the Kremlin has traveled when even MK is appalled by its casual disregard for the life of innocent Russian citizens.

Worse than the robotic, unfeeling killers, of course, is the government that gives them their marching orders, that creates a vast number of people who are “disillusioned, oppressed, and disgruntled” as Russia denies them basic citizenship rights and yet will not allow them to separate and form their own states — even as Russia hypocritically assists other groups in separating from nations like Georgia.  The Memorial report shows the Putin regime in its true colors.

And yet, in our view even this brutality pales compared to that of the civilian population in Russia.  Yes, that’s right, we blame ordinary Russian citizens more.  Why? Because they have created, intentionally, the conditions that are necessary for these crimes to occur, just as they did in the times of Stalin.  They have allowed  proud KGB spy to govern them, allowed him to wipe out independent media and liquidate leading journalists who report on the government’s crimes in Chechnya, allowed him to obliterate opposition political parties and real elections, turned a blind eye as he has made every effort to recreate the Soviet dictatorship.  Even now, Putin is seeking to suppress a UN report that documents Russian crimes in Chechnya.

The continuing popularity Putin enjoys in opinion polls is conclusive proof that ordinary Russian citizens are complicit in these murders.  If there was a significant anti-war movement in Russia, if there was a sizable opposition party in the Duma, then Russians could be excused. But these things do not exist.  Instead, like a nation of bleating sheep Russians bah and bray as Putin ravages their nation like the neo-Soviet demon he is.

    • What? Is THIS really the title? Is this a trailer, or just one huge spoiler? Or is this actually a complete film or something? Why didn’t they tell some real story (or stories), and do it in a realistic manner, instead of a silly action flick with some very ham-fisted propaganda?

      I also thought “hey, it’s Harrison’s Flowers II (Electric Boogaloo)”. HF had a somewhat similar story (foreign journalists trapped in a war zone), only set in Croatia in 1991. I think it was a mix of mostly a good and then some bad movie (and for me the good part was was the realistic stuff, as I said), and was certainly so much better, anyway. A scene from this film:

    • Robert,

      You are biting the hand that feeds you. This new film id not supposed to be a work of art. This is anti-Russian propaganda paid by Saakashvili.

      The fact that it has no story, no character and nothing but graphic violence just tells you what Saakashvili likes to see in his movies.

      Of course, I greatly enjoy how Andy Garcia, who plays Saakashvili, speaks with a despicable “foreign” accented falcetto (like Tatoo on Fantasy Island: “Dee plane, boss, dee plane!”). Like that monumental scene where he comes out to speak to his Glorious Georgian Nation in his native Georgian language and bleats in accented pidgin English: “Dee plein, boss, dee plein!”

      I can’t wait for this “masterpiece” to hit the big screens.

      • What “hand is feeding me”? Saakashvili is not paying me.

        How much are you outraged by these most recent murders of innocent Russian citiziens by the FSB special forces? “Genocide” much? Surely should the 58th Army respond to this by securing the independence of Chechnya and Ingushetia, and of course then allow/aid/join the separatist forces in their mass looting and arson sprees in non-Vaynakh villages?

        I heard that firing even a few Grad rockets in the Caucuasus is the Most Horrible Thing, according to many Russians including you. So I guess the following video may shock you deeply, and of course don’t forget to check the oh-so-concerned comments by the fellow Russian citiziens regarding this (such as the most recent one, “some bananas for the chechnyan apes “):

      • And here is how I would write this film (Georgia). I would make it with several main characters (such as in amazingly good Chinese movie Nanking Nanking), real characters and what really happaned to them. Like for example, the Dutch reporter killed vby Iskander, this military surgeon who was killed when the helicopter attacked the hospital, a sympathic Russian soldier who is at first enthusiastic for his cause and then looses illusions (see: the Russian defectors), a hostage held by the Ossetians, a village woman, etc. Guess I’d call it Gori.

        Nanking Nanking trailer (about the Japanese genocide in China, in Shindler List-esque style except with no happy end whatsoever) about how do do a good movie:

  1. AP ( http://www.etaiwannews.com/etn/news_content.php?id=1182302&lang=eng_news )

    “The independent rights group Memorial Monday made similar allegations regarding the shootout. Rights activists said that four Chechen villagers were killed in the crossfire when they wandered across the Ingush border to gather wild garlic.”

    No, Memorial said they were murdered for a close-range ambush and multilated with knives by the Russian (here: ethnic Russian) special forces. I guess this AP editor had a hard time understaing the issue, maybe for the reason it doesn’t happen in the civilized world? “Caught in crossfire during a shootout” was the version of the story told by the Ingush president via RIAN.

    Usually they just declare dead civilians (including the victims of kidnapping) “destroyed bandits” and they open (and then immediatelly close, as they’re dead) criminal investigations against them post-mortem (instead of against their killers).

    @Chechnya’s human rights ombudsman condemned the killings,

    Kadyrov’s man. He’ll sometimes accuse the federals, or the siloviki from the other republics, but never the forces of his boss (who is in turn a fall-guy for the “Russian government”, and many say thy’re going to waste him in the end, just like they allegedly killed his father to replace him with his brute idiot son).

    • @Usually they just declare dead civilians (including the victims of kidnapping) “destroyed bandits” and they open (and then immediatelly close, as they’re dead) criminal investigations against them post-mortem (instead of against their killers).

      And by “them”, I meant “the police”. Happens for example with practically all of the frequent checkpoint shootings (so the people in the cars “were destroyed by the return fire”).

  2. Meanwhile, our Russian friends continue the rehabilitation of Stalin….

    “Moscow to be decorated in images of Stalin

    Soviet-style plans to decorate Moscow with outdoor portraits of brutal dictator Josef Stalin have sparked fury among critics who say it is wrong to glorify a man responsible for the death of millions.

    By Andrew Osborn in Moscow
    Published: 6:00AM GMT 19 Feb 2010

    Moscow city authorities argue that the bloodthirsty tyrant should not be airbrushed out of Russia’s history.
    “We need to remember the man who led our country in the war,” said Vladimir Makarov, a city official, denying the initiative would glorify a despot responsible by some estimates for the deaths of around 20 million people.

    Up to ten prominent “information stands” featuring Stalin’s portrait and information about his wartime role will spring up across the Russian capital ahead of May 9, he added. That is the date when Russia celebrates the Soviet Union’s defeat of Nazi Germany and this year, the 65th anniversary, promises to be the biggest event of its kind since the fall of the Soviet Union.
    Mr Makarov argued that the authorities had received “numerous requests” to publicise Stalin’s wartime role as the Soviet Union’s Commander-in-Chief from war veterans. Many older Russians credit Stalin with masterminding the Soviet victory even though he is known to have made appalling tactical blunders.
    Human rights activists said they were sickened by the idea of portraits of Stalin hanging throughout Moscow.
    “Stalin was a criminal and it is utterly disgraceful to publicise his regime which killed millions of people,” said Ludmila Alexeyeva, a prominent rights activist. “It is the same as glorifying Hitler in Germany. We will definitely be protesting.”
    Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said he too was opposed. “Stalin had a role in the war. That is a fact,” he told Interfax news agency. “But if we flood Moscow with information stands about him it will at the very least be misconstrued and surprise many people.”
    The plan follows what some believe to be a sustained Kremlin-backed campaign to rehabilitate the Soviet leader in order to help justify today’s de facto one party system.
    A Soviet-era inscription that lavishes fawning praise on Stalin unexpectedly reappeared after half a century in the Moscow metro last year, while a handbook for history teachers describes him as the most outstanding leader the Soviet Union ever had.
    Stalin’s grandson has also been allowed to use Russia’s legal system to sue journalists he deems guilty of defaming his relative. If there is an official campaign it appears to be working.
    An opinion poll at the end of last year showed Stalin’s standing among ordinary Russians had risen to its highest level in more than a decade. Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov hailed the portraits plan as courageous and correct. “Without Generalissimo Stalin this great victory would have been unthinkable,” he said.”

  3. @Even now, Putin is seeking to suppress a UN report that documents Russian crimes in Chechnya.

    RUSSIA – points 207 – 214, page 128

    …North Caucasus … “a considerable number of persons alleged that they had been held for some time, and in most cases ill-treated, in places which did not appear to be official detention facilities, before being transferred to a recognised law enforcement structure…In October 2009, the Human Rights Committee expressed concern “about ongoing reports of torture and ill-treatment, enforced disappearance, arbitrary arrest, extrajudicial killing and secret detention in Chechnya and other parts of the North Caucasus committed by military, security services and other state agents, and that the authors of such violations appear to enjoy widespread impunity due to a systematic lack of effective investigation and prosecution.” The Committee was “particularly concerned that the number of disappearances and abduction cases in Chechnya has increased in the period 2008-2009.”

    On 29 December 2009 Nurdi Nukhazhiev, Ombudsman of Chechnya reported: “Close relatives of more than 5000 kidnapped and missing citizens are exasperated by the inaction (throughout many years already)…

    …X.Y. explained how in Dagestan in late 2007, and taken to “a secret facility which he called a concentration camp ‘where people do not come back from’, in Gudermes district, Chechnya”, run by the FSB, the GRU and the ATC . He described being held in an old concrete building, “recalled a terrible smell and walls covered in blood”, and explained that he was “severely tortured” for ten days, which included receiving electric shocks, being beaten with iron bars, and being burned with a lighter. He also explained that he “was never given food and received only one glass of water per day”, and that he “witnessed a man beaten to death whose organs were then removed”. ….“several other secret facilities such as the one where he had been held exist in Chechnya, and since more recently, also in Dagestan.

    • As for places where persons may be unlawfully detained, a number of consistent allegations were received in respect of one or more places in the village of Tsentoroy, and of the ‘Vega base’ located in the outskirts of Gudermes. Several allegations were also received of unlawful detentions in the Shali and Urus-Martan areas

  4. The European Court of Human Rights orders Russia to pay over 120,000 euros to two Chechens

    Yesterday at 23:27

    http://www.kyivpost.com/news/russia/detail/59928/

    The first lawsuit was filed by the parents of missing Zurab Iriskhanov from the village of Samashki. The parents said their son was taken away in an unknown direction by a group of military servicemen on June 19, 2002, and have not heard from him since then.

    The court found that the case is in violation of the European Convention on Human Rights’ provisions about the right to life, the right to effective remedy, the right to freedom and privacy, as well as the prohibition of inhumane and humiliating treatment.

    The second lawsuit was from the wife of Chechen man Abu Aliyev, also taken away in an unknown direction by an armed group on October 29, 2002.

    The court ruled that the case is in violation of the same articles of the Convention and of the ban on illegal detention and the right to be provided with necessary help.

  5. Only you freaks think that Russia is hell.

    The only hell is the Great Satan a.k.a. the United Snakes and its poisonous influence, evident by world opinion.

    • Spoke with the ayatollah lately? How is he doing?

    • What planet are you from Planqua? Your ruSSian fascist comment that “Only you freaks think that Russia is hell.

      The only hell is the Great Satan a.k.a. the United Snakes and its poisonous influence, evident by world opinion.”

      How about quoting facts, as opposed to made up ruSSian propaganda that you excel so well on!

      How about for a change you tell us how many people Putin’s ruSSia has killed? A good start would be the wives that get murdered at the rate of one every 30 minutes by his citizens.

      Also how about telling us just how despised Putin is by the average world wide person – but dearly loved by scum like the KGB that he has resurrected to its former murdering status.

      Or, how about telling us about the portraits that are being elected in Moscow to the greatest mass murderer of all time, your beloved ‘Soso’ Stalin who murdered in the 10’s of millions – so unlike murderer Hitler, who didn’t even reach double figures.

      It is you that should crawl back to the freakish ‘Ka Ge Be’ (ruSSian for KGB – recently undergone another name change to FSB, but still a murdering mafia) cesspool that you so richly belong to and deserve.

      • I guess “Planqua” (used some other name before) is just a big fan of the late Ayatollah Khomeini.

        • I don’t think you Russophobes realize how much the US is hated universally.

          There are probably at least a billion people in the world that would not mind seeing the US disappear from the map.

      • If you wanna talk about crime and mass murder — here’s some enlightening knowledge for you.

        • [a TON of completely unrelated copy-paste spam]

          And all of them altogether killed less people than only one Russian, Vasili Blokhin (Василий Блохин).

          Blokhin, a general in the Soviet secret police, killed tens of thousands of innocent people. No, not with his orders, like Himmler (who never personally killed anyone in his life). I mean with his own hands (his trigger finger). And for this he became a “hero” of the Moscow regime, awarded with the state’s highest awards, and of course not prosecuted.

          Blokhin and his medals:

          @convicted (…) executed

          And this is the difference.

          @documented serial killers. (source: FBI)

          Because FBI is totally documenting the serial killers in, say, Africa (where I guess nobody is ever murdering anyone). Or Russia for that matter.

          Speaking of the FBI, exactly how many American Muslims living in United States were brutally murdered for racist reasons by the FBI commandos last week, so I might compare with this recent FSB killings incident in Ingushetia and decide myself should I join the “at least a billion people” and now hate the “Great Snakes” or whatever?

        • What a brainwashed communist moron you are, “Planqua”, so full of your propaganda rubbish, that you have to hide under a nom de plume to hide your real name!

          It is pathetic that you can only copy and paste approximately 100 murderers and the people they killed in the USA, which by the way is a pitiful number, when compared to Blokhin’s ‘handiwork’ with his prized pistol. Now how about you getting of your fat ass and listing the 10s of millions that your beloved communist NKVD thugs murdered in Ukraine alone, a figure that INCLUDED countless babies and children – come on you communist wierdo just answer this question, rather than posting a question in reply to a question.

          By the way I’m not – as you say – ‘gonna’ hold my breath, waiting for your

          • Oops I omitted to add the last word, which is “reply”.

            • Go masturbate with Bandera.

              • When all else fails you commo’s always turn to your natural crudeness and vulgarity. I bet that in reality you’r not a king but a queen i.e. a sick, sick person!

                About Bandera, impossible you communist wierdo as he is dead. But your beloved murdering thug ‘heil Putler’ is still alive, so take up your own suggestion and “Go masturbate with”… who else but your beloved Vova Putin.

                Have fun!!

  6. Meanwhile in Ingushetia, possibly the best insurgent prank since the Dagestani “bomb-in-a-toliet” (and with a double-tap):

    On Friday information was received about an explosive device planted in a derelict house in Nazran. A group of policemen left for the site. When they arrived, an explosive device, supposedly remotely controlled, went off. Up to ten people were wounded and rushed to hospital.

    A brigade of investigators left for the site, and when they arrived two more explosive devices went off. A local resident as well as policemen and investigators were wounded.

    Ingushetia’s prosecutor Yuri Turygin said the blasts came as “a reaction to active steps of law enforcement agencies to liquidate underworld”.

    http://www.itar-tass.com/eng/level2.html?NewsID=14844371&PageNum=0

    (I wonder if they then sent there an another group to “investigate further”, and the rebels just eventually run out of bombs.)

  7. On Feb 23 there will be an anniversary of the great Vainakh deportation of 1994.

    An appeal to all men of good will all around the world to gather at the Russian Embassies on the 23rd of February 16.00 to condemn the 200-year Russian policy of genocide in the Caucasus:

    • …and with all of them taken altogether this still less victims than in just one, single Russian school shooting:

      Beslan Elementary, North Ossetia, Russian Federation, September 3 2004 [almost 400]

      (And then stuff like the killings in the basement of former school for deaf children in Grozny and so on. But hey, few people even know about this.)

      • You might try an interesting experiment sometime: reading.

        Beslan was a terrorist attack, carried out with quite some assistance from abroad.

        The list shows Americans who kill other Americans.

        • Isn’t it true that in Beslan Russians were killing other Russians?

          What exactly does your list prove? That there are hundreds of mentally and/or emotionally unstable persons in the country of 300 million people? What is so surprising about that? And of course we have problems with handgun violence because we historic and constitutional reasons access to firearms is relatively easy.

          A lot of people in the U.S. would put more restrictions on access to guns, and I am one of them. But about the same number of people or maybe more prefer the current system, not because they are crazy but because they think that losing freedom is more important than improving safety.

          We have an ongoing debate about all this, and the society will eventually work out some kind of compromise.

          Your comparison is, however, invalid. It’s one thing to have insane persons shoot people. It’s quite another situation when the government, as in Russia, is systematically engaged in political murders, abductions and other abuses. U.S. Government does nothing of a kind and never did, with an exception of Kent State shootings which is also on your list.

        • You might try an interesting experiment sometime: thinking. September 3 at Beslan was a police action, carried out without any assistance from abroad.

          In any case, even most of the outlaws involved (expect only two of them) were Russians (at least according to Russia, they themselves apparently disagreed regarding this), and they killed only other Russians. In Russia.

          @The list shows Americans who kill other Americans.

          Oh yeah. Especially this:

          “Virginia Tech massacre Blacksburg, Virginia, United States April 16 2007 33”

          Btw,

          “Columbine High School massacre Littleton, Colorado, United States April 20 1999 15”

          This figure includes the shooters (just like the others I guess). So I too included the shooters (hostage takers and the spetsnaz gunmen alike, for me there was absolutely no difference between them) and wrote “almost 400” and not just “333” (or so).

  9. King of spam

  10. Well king if the USA is such a cesspool why do 10’s of thousands of Russians choose to leave your utopian Russian society and live there? including people like Arthur. If what you say is true I would advise them to return as quickly as possible, or could it be that these Russian are very happy in the USA and would view your comments as just mindless drivel? I would say these Russian ex- pats would call you King of crap rather than king of truth.

  11. Well, it’s obvious that “planqua”, “king” and “LaQuanta” are the same person. I guess Russian trolls have gotten bored of using the “yes, but America invaded Iraq” line in response to any criticism of the Putin regime, and they’ve replaced it with “yes, but America has lots of serial killers”. Imaginative.

  12. That was painful. Perhaps some moderation is in order?

    I’m not sure I could go through that again.

  13. Sorry, Americans are STILL in Irak. The Blackwater serial killers are running free. Official explanation: you see, US respects the rule of law. The lawyers of the Blackwater mass murderers found a micro procedural mistake and… the lads are free.

    The US was for starters. The main murderers are found in Israel. The sponsors of this website.

  14. Mike2 maybe you should try posting when you’re sober, only I can’t understand your drunken gibberish!!!

  15. Who is drunk here?

    High respect for US citizens. But you guys have some homework to do. Irak, Blackwater, legal system for starters.

    Israel supporters have some soul searching to do aswell before spreading hate for worse crime commited than the subject of the hate feeling.

    Individuals like Kim Zigfeld will turn on the US as they do now with Russia. Not now, because the US does the dirty job for Israel.

    • Funny how Sovki manage to bring up Israel even in discussions that have absolutely nothing to do with it. I guess they still cannot get over IDF repeatedly whupping the asses of their Arab stooges – despite all the Soviet money, and weapons, and “advisers.”

      • Ah Kaktuss, I must say I like your spot on reply, so truthful/honest and 100% accurate! Now you will have the KGB scum besides themselves with rage as you have hit the nail on the head.

        I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for their irrelevant, crude and illogical propaganda replies!

        Your blog brings to mind the previous (read assassinated 6th Oct 1981 by moslem fundamentalists) Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat who booted out the Soviets prior to his demise for several reasons. ONE of the major reasons for their expulsions being that their military equipment was shoddy and second rate when compared to the American equipment as used by the Israelis.

        He was succeeded as President by Hosni Mubarak a fighter pilot, who was educated at the Egyptian Air Force Academy and later at the Frunze General Staff Academy in Moscow, and yet still agreed 100% with Anwar and hence kept the current expulsion status quo in operation.

  16. This is all yawningly, boringly typical. As soon as some statistics appear to highlight an article in this site that shows the problems in Russia, someone says the old “US has problems too” retort, just like a child would do if you ask them to stop picking on someone in the playground “tommy’s picking on me – well other people pick on tommy too, so its okay”.

    If someone showed me problems with my country (and before you call me some western lackey – not Russia, US or a European country), I would address it by either clarifying the facts, or discuss how I think things could be done to make things better in my country. Russophiles seem to be so incredibly defensive all the time. If there is a serial killer in my country, i’d be looking for ways to stop them occuring, not just saying “it happens elsewhere too”. It’s a sad sad world in Russia where emotionally infantile adults run their society.
    Russia – the land where the school bully is king.

    • What you are saying is very true, with one small correction. When somebody says anything critical of Russia, they are replying but not merely saying “U.S. has problems too,” but the same without any “too.”

      Their response, to whatever problem basically is total denial along such lines as “Russia has no problems,” “Russia is a highly developed country,” “Russia is a beacon of democracy” (or alternatively, “Russia does not need your stinking democracy”) and so on, followed by “U.S. is an illegal state,” “America is a land of serial killers,” “All America thinks about is how to steal Iraq’s oil,” and other variations of the same. Some Russophiles who are more anti-Semitic also love to respond by adding various crimes of Israel.

      Call it a wounded pride — an almost an innate necessity to prove that others (meaning the West of course) are bad as if, even if it were true, it would make Russia good

  17. Sorry, if one gives lessons on morals, one should be at least as clean as the morals professed.

    The US (yes, the US of A) does the dirty job for Israel in Irak. Should we expect Israelis/individuals like Kim Zigfeld to criticize the US for doing such a goood jooob?

    • We have heard this and similar anti-Semitic rants before. If you don’t like the coverage here or Kim personally, you are not required to read it. You are free to go to other places.

      • I don’t know Kim personally. Am i being anti-Semitic by saying that US citizens die for a cause that is not theirs?

        • No, but you are following the typical Russophile pattern of commenting on this site by deflecting from the topic at hand (Russian behaviour in the Caucasus) by saying how bad the US is when this is nothing to do with the record of human rights in Russia.

        • Attacking Israel, or its “dirty work” or the U.S. for supporting Israel are all favorite tools of anti-Semites. These techniques have replaced former, and more crude, approaches of pogroms, expulsions, or a direct Jew-baiting. So, if you use these propaganda devices merely c0incidentally, it’s a strange coincidence indeed.

          If you are saying you are not anti-Semitic, knowing nothing about you I must give your the benefit of the doubt, but please be aware that what you are writing smells very anti-Semitic even if you did not intend it.

          By the way, Israel never asked President Bush to attack Iraq and had no more interest in Iraq or its oil as other countries had. Of course, Israel had to be on her guard dealing with that regime, but that would equally apply almost to any Arab state. Israel is technically in state of war with all of them, I think, except Egypt and Jordan.

          So, the invasion of Iraq, whether it was a wise or unwise action, is our cause, not Israel’s.

  18. Perle and Wolfowitz are famous for their antisemitism.

    The fact that you CONSIDER being NOT manipulated is no guarantee that no-one is manipulating you.

    7/10/2003, Frontline Interview with Perle
    The real stakes in the Persian Gulf.
    U.S. News & World Report; 10/26/1987; Perle, Richard N.

    In explaining its policy on the Gulf, the administration has pointed to three U.S. interests: One, maintaining unimpeded access to Gulf oil; two, protecting the security and stability of friendly Gulf states and, three, denying Soviet influence in the region.

    There is no doubt that it is Iraq that started the war with Iran. It is Iraq that began attacking commercial shipping, and it is Iraq that initiated the use of chemical weapons and the bombing of civilian targets.

    U.S. News & World Report; 9/24/1990; Perle, Richard N.
    Only by crushing Saddam Hussein and his war machine can we begin to build a stable political order in the Middle East.
