“I shall give a propagandist cause for starting the war. Never mind if it is plausible or not. The victor will not be asked, later on, whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war, it is not right that matters but victory. Have no pity. Adopt a brutal attitude… Right is on the side of the strongest.”
– Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)
Millions of men and women around the world are experiencing astonishment after listening to the intercepted phone call between the European Union’s Catherine Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet. These same millions of people from every nation and region around the world are now experiencing double astonishment.
Mr. Paet’s bombshell allegation shared with the EU’s Ms. Ashton, that one group of snipers was behind the shootings and murders in Kiev, and that this group was not sponsored by Viktor Yanukovych but the so-called new coalition, has caused a worldwide stir that cannot be ignored by the most powerful political leaders on Earth.
Destabilization of nations, false flag operations, and outright coups have in the past been conducted without the broad awareness of most people on Earth. But, because the situation in Ukraine has led to a political clash between Russia, the European Union, and the United States, and because there are many more millions of men and women following, researching, and writing about events in the Ukraine, the phone call between Ms. Ashton and Mr. Paet cannot be swept under the rug – the allegation(s) contained in that call will have to become addressed in front of the entire human race.
It is generally accepted as fact that Viktor Yanukovych stole billions of dollars from the Ukrainian people, yet the crime of multiple murder of protesters is now in question. This leads logically to some extremely important questions.
Is there any possibility that Mr. Paet’s allegations are true?
What is, or isn’t, being done to determine if his allegations are true?
Why are major media companies not giving Mr. Paet’s allegations the attention matching their seriousness?
Why have no Congressman or Senators in the USA raised the issue of Mr. Paet’s phone call with Ms. Ashton – at least to disprove them?
If there is possibility that Mr. Paet’s assertions are true, then mass murderers are on the loose. Does this not concern US, EU, Ukrainian, or Russian politicians?
Will the world stand idly by while the mass murderers of Ukrainian policemen and peaceful protesters elude justice?
Who are these mass murderers, who supplied and directed them, and was the intent of the unknown snipers to create the illusion that Viktor Yanukovych gave the deadly force orders, to facilitate a new government in Ukraine, because Yanukovych was “killing his own citizens”?
As mentioned, there is general agreement that Mr. Yanukovych stole billions from Ukraine, but that does not erase the possible major crimes of snipers killing in a professional, military manner. Dr. Olga Bogolomets, the woman Mr. Paet spoke to about the serious allegations he later shared with Ms. Ashton in the phone call, treated those protesters who were hit by bullets in Kiev, and observed that people were getting shot in the head, neck, and heart – in other words, the shooters were shooting to kill.
Dr. Bogolomets may become Ukraine’s Minister of Health. While she was treating the victims of shootings in Kiev she observed that there were very few victims who had been shot in the arms or legs, or with rubber bullets. Her observations, along with the recollections of former members of Ukraine’s Kiev-based élite law enforcement unit, the Berkut (the unit was dissolved when the new government took power, the over 1,000 Berkut members were out of a job), strongly indicates that shooters were highly trained, professional, military-style men who knew exactly what they were doing.
Not investigating the serious allegations can only be described as an option that is untenable – to ignore this largest of the large accusation without a probe to determine its reality or falsehood is unthinkable and unimaginable.
The action which turned out to be the genesis of protests in Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych’s postponement of consideration of a European Union offer in favor of a Russian offer of economic aid, saw Russia putting $15 billion on the table. Mr. Yanukovych is alleged to have stolen from $12-70 billion from the Ukrainian Treasury. Mr. Yanukovych, who in all likelihood used tax havens in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, or any number of tax havens around the world, has knowledge of where those missing $billions are.
France’s President Hollande has called for “the eradication of tax havens”. As a result of tragic events in Ukraine (which may or may not have included mass murder initiating a coup d’état), along with actions by government officials involving massive corruption (including hiding of $billions in offshore tax havens), offers humanity the very real possibility of ending two of mankind’s greatest historic scourges.
The illegal overthrow of democratically elected governments. The theft of democracy.
The virtually unanimous participation by wealthy individuals and corporations from every nation in the massive, secretive, worldwide tax haven industry – corruption. Another form of theft of democracy.
Recent events in the Ukraine have been dramatic, saddening, enraging, and tragic. From a certain perspective, the two main issues which have become identified are those listed – these issues represent at the same time two of the major issues that humanity must honestly deal with.
Investigation of the killings in Ukraine to determine who was responsible is the right thing to do. Investigation to determine where the $billions stolen by Viktor Yanukovych went, and if they are in tax havens, is the right thing to do. Given the universal attention these investigations will receive from men and women around the world from the media, politicians, citizen journalists, religious organizations – the whole of humanity – truth will come to the fore, starting the process of worldwide eradication of actions like coups and tax evasion.
This then begins humanity’s journey toward true democracy on this Earth.
