The events in Washington are certainly a welcome opportunity for the international “kowtowing brigade” to pander to a President Joe Biden. Proclamations of loyalty before a possible inauguration, something completely new. The credibility of such proclamations would then undoubtedly be high if, with the same “Twitter verve,” the wars instigated from within the U.S. Congress and contrary to international law had been condemned with the same vigor by the same people. Millions of victims since the NATO war against Yugoslavia were the result, which was apparently accepted in order to make oneself “dear child” in Washington. Today, one only has to look at the long interview with Mrs. Albright in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Not many will remember how she commented on the 500,000 dead children in Iraq as a result of the sanctions imposed by the United States. As long as in the so-called leading media such personalities are granted so much space, it is not far with a formerly existing value system in our media has and becomes again the precursor of misery and war.
Washington and the events at and in the Capitol are a “deja vue” for those who have not forgotten the last decades. It started with a presidential election in remnant Yugoslavia in 2000 and OTPOR’s U.S.-originated civil war planning came to baptism by fire in front of the parliament building in Belgrade. Today, film footage of the storming of the parliament in Belgrade still reflects the rising smoke as the voting results of the last presidential election, stored there, went up in flames.
In light of the events, it must be assumed that the goal of storming the parliament was primarily to destroy any evidence of the previously held elections.
Belgrade 2000 is only one proof of not experiencing such disgraceful actions as now in Washington for the first time. Even Caracas must be recalled. In all these events, and since Mossadeq’s time, there was always the certainty of who had pulled the strings for stormings of this kind. The direction always came from the – “usual suspects.” According to the “standards” set since then for events of this kind, one might assume that the justified indignation about the events in Washington is supposed to cover up who really wanted to achieve what in Capitol under the guise of a storming. Not only CNN has been wondering for days about the alleged security of the Capitol, described from lax to inviting. In this it is almost lost that central computers of important personalities have been downloaded.
