    Africans 'under siege' in Moscow

    Post  sepheronx on Mon Aug 31, 2009 6:07 pm


    Africans 'under siege' in Moscow

    Many African students in Moscow are afraid to go outside

    Nearly 60% of black and African people living in Russia's capital Moscow have been physically assaulted in racially motivated attacks, says a new study.

    Africans working or studying in the city live in constant fear of attack, according to the report by the Moscow Protestant Chaplaincy.

    A quarter of 200 people surveyed said they had been assaulted more than once. Some 80% had been verbally abused.

    But the number of assaults was down from the MPC's last survey in 2002.

    The report's clear conclusion was that Africans living in Russia exist in a state of virtual siege, says the BBC's Rupert Wingfield Hayes in Moscow.

    Extreme violence

    Many of the African respondents said they:

    * Avoided using the Moscow metro
    * Were also careful to avoid crowded public places
    * Did not go out on Russian national holidays or on days when there were football matches

    Many of the attacks on Africans were pre-meditated and extremely violent, the report found.

    One Nigerian migrant interviewed by the BBC had been repeatedly stabbed in the back and then shot.

    Another man said his attacker had attempted to remove his scalp.

    Officially there are some 10,000 Africans living in Moscow, but far more are believed to live there illegally - many as economic migrants.

    The Moscow Protestant Chaplaincy is an English-speaking interdenominational Christian congregation that has ministered to Moscow's foreign community since 1962.

    I put this into question. First off, I do not see any other news source to this other then BBC.

    Second, these immigrants in Russia they interviewed, are they now living in England or what? Cause if they are, then they could also be people extending the truth? I know skinheads exist everywhere (there are tons in Calgary, Alberta (here), but they are never mentioned. I have a feeling that this whole statistic is thrown way out of proportion. But then again, that is what news is good at doing. Did you know 70% of statistics are made on the spot? See what I am getting at? Easy to fabricate the truth.

    Edit: Also, it seems that this article did its job in providing fuel for the fire for all Russophobes I noticed on other forums. They are now going around saying "Russia needs to do something about immigrants being scalped" and so on. Funny thing is, who knows if it was a racily motivated attack? What if it was just a real screwed up guy? BBC wont say that nor will the russophobes. They now act as if Scalping is an every day business in Russia. And this is where our western nations and East will never get along; the stupid will always hate Russia and Russia will always hate us. To be honest, I don't blame Russia hating us, all our papers and politicians say is how evil they are. Maybe we should take a look in the mirror sometime.

    Edit 2: Now I re-read this, and saw where the interviews are coming from. Now, if someone from Russia that can tell me about this group, and what they are like? An english speaking group in Russia? Usually these groups are hired goons also known as "the free press" and "Humanitarians"

    I wouldn't put too much stock into it. This Amerikan protestant group is trying to make it look worse than it really is. I will admit, illegals of different races will be attacked often. The tactic, ask for valid ID. The people they survey are illegals who frequent their church while they harbour illegals.

    Makes sense vlad. All I know is that it seems that whatever happens in Russia (like it would happen here in Canada or worst, the USA) gets more attention. Racial attacks in the USA will happen all the time, like in the poorer areas of USA and if you are white and not Hispanic or black, you would either get beaten or end up dead. Does that ever get media attention? Maybe in the movies.

    Movie Russians need to Rebut

    Post  nightcrawler on Sat Jun 25, 2011 11:45 pm

    @ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1486193/
    The movie is very good on action & war machine visuals & depicts russian machinery on a large scale...but what about facts.

    Movie starts & claims to be factual so I want some clarification from Russian sides about the said FACTUAL genocides by the Russian military in Georgia. Plus I also want some answers that was it the oil pipe line that Russian feared to be handed over to west that led to conflict

    If Americans knew they were suffering because of all the US dollars and exports being sent to Georgia to buy them off as their friends......the US would be no more.


    Not even Russia has stooped so low. Americans themselves would be over in Georgia killing them. How much are those Georgian boys getting paid to work for DOD in Iraq? Really....gave them US Civil Servant positions?....thought those jobs were reserved for Americans....ahhhh I see....

    Hmmmm...see the Georgians making lots of Youtube video's driving around their new Japanese atvs that usually were sold in America....wow.....


    America's suffering right now because the money's being used to buy friends around the world. Bill Clinton's Quadrennial Defense Review cut US military and used Billions over the years buying off dictators and countries.....awww...Americans lost their jobs? No homes?

    It's ok....maybe they will end up America's friend....maybe they are like Vietnam and playing America as the sucker handing out free things trying to be their friends now.


    ""Genocide""....really? Why were +1 million Iraqi's killed? mmmmm oil.

    Movie starts & claims to be factual so I want some clarification from Russian sides about the said FACTUAL genocides by the Russian military in Georgia. Plus I also want some answers that was it the oil pipe line that Russian feared to be handed over to west that led to conflict

    First of all if the oil pipeline led to the conflict... why was it that it was Georgia that invaded South Ossetia and not Russia invading Georgia?

    I haven't seen the movie but the claim initially from Georgia was that Russian forces were moving into South Ossetia in a big invasion.

    The question then of course is how could the Georgian forces amass a force large enough not only to stop this Russian force but also push them back and hold them long enough to bombard the South Ossetian capital for 2 nights before the Russian forces so decisively pushed them back?

    If the Georgians were fighting front line Russian armour why was most of their equipment and weapons artillery?


    The facts are there was no Russian attack... it was a planned Georgian attack timed specifically to coincide with the opening ceremony of the olympic games in China... typically and traditionally a time of ceasefires and peace rather than a chance to invade and murder.

    The Georgians used artillery because as far as they knew there were only some Russian paratroopers there are peace keepers and rather than fight them one on one they wanted to fight from a distance with artillery knowing their enemy had no heavy weapons.

    Paratroops dropped behind enemy lines are generally dealt with the same way as they are usually well trained troops so firing at them with artillery is usually the best way to deal with them rather than drawing front line well equipped troops from the front to deal with them.

    If the Georgians had ANY evidence of genocide they would have taken it to the various EU courts. They had no evidence at all... which is little surprise... they had been using UAVs to recon South Ossetia and Abkhazia for months before and now we know why... they wanted targets for their artillery and attacks.


    And finally why would Russia "fear" a western pipeline through Georgia?

    Have they bombed Iran?

    Iran has pipelines taking oil from the Caspian Sea too. The west had no access to oil reserves there but Georgia offered a chance for them to take oil from the region... big deal. Hardly a problem for Russia.

    It is a B movie for Rambo fans. Evil Ruskies are coming!

    What a piece of crap that vehicle is eh? But 5 were free! Were they ever given back to the US? I find no news story since 2008.

    The humvees were a bit of a joke when they first came out.

    Their whole purpose was to replace the Jeep with something that was supposed to be a cross between an MRAP and a range rover.

    In other words a protected vehicle that could go anywhere.

    The result was a huge vehicle that was hard to manouver in narrow streets that was very heavy but not actually an armoured vehicle except in the even heavier armoured models that drank fuel like a sailor drinks booze.

    AFAIK they were not returned... and neither should they be. When was the last time the west returned anything that was captured in war?

    It certainly is possible the Georgians were hired via a Contract...to fly US helicopters in Afghanistan.

    US mainstream media & Gang of War Criminals

    Post  Guest on Thu Mar 15, 2012 12:57 am

    Under the Nuremberg Principles, later incorporated into the United Nations Charter, to which the United States is a signatory, the planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression, which is defined as a war started against another nation that does not pose an imminent threat of attack on the aggressor nation or nations, is the highest of war crimes, for which the perpetrators are liable for the death penalty. Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of those above acts is an equally serious capital crime.

    How then to explain the casual way that civilian and military leaders of the US and Israel are talking openly about plans and threats to attack Iran?

    The supposed casus belli or justification for such an attack is that Iran, which has a uranium enrichment program underway which it claims is to produce nuclear fuel for its new nuclear reactor (a completely legal activity for any nation under international law), secretly plans to further enrich uranium to make an atomic bomb. Yet that is a process which, even if it were to be implemented, would not lead to an actual bomb suitable for testing for at least a year, and which would not give Iran a functioning, useable weapon for even longer. (US intelligence sources say that Iran at this point is not even trying to make a bomb!).

    That alleged threat, even if it were real, doesn’t even come close to constituting an “imminent” threat of attack of the kind which might justify a pre-emptive strike on Iran, as is being publicly contemplated and threatened by the US and Israel.

    The simple fact is that the president of the United States, Barack Obama, and his top generals and cabinet officers, are committing a war crime every time they threaten Iran with attack. The president is also committing a crime of conspiracy when he sends his generals to Israel, which is also committing the crime of threatening to attack Iran and planning to attack Iran. This is because by discussing options for an attack, or by providing Israel with the weapons and delivery systems it would need for such an attack, as the US is doing by sending Israel super large bunker-buster bombs and bomb-capable aircraft, they are furthering that conspiracy.

    What is absolutely stunning is that this massive criminality at the highest levels of the US government is going on totally unchallenged by the US mainstream media
    There is not one word in the Times or anywhere else in the corporate media about the reality that such an attack would constitute the commission of a supreme war crime.

    But all the war talk and saber rattling, the only debate in the US media seems to be over whether the US is really planning to attack Iran, or whether it would join in attacking Iran if Israel were to launch an attack, not on whether such an attack by either nation on Iran would constitute a horrific war crime.

    There are polls, some of which show a majority of Americans to favor an attack on Iran by the US, but again, there are no pollsters asking Americans whether they think such an attack would be a crime against humanity.

    Never have the US media suggested that past horrors were war crimes deserving prosecution (though at least the House Impeachment Committee did consider charging President Richard Nixon with a war crime for invading Cambodia).
    So why should we expect things to be any different now?

    Nuremburg was nothing to do with Justice – it was retribution and revenge – and the extermination of people who knew the truth [Holohoax].

    Since then, the UN and the ICJ has systematically displayed unbelievable bias. The Hague trials are a perpetuation of the Nuremburg fiascos.

    Anyone with only one eye can see that there actually is no justice in the world – otherwise the leaders of the Western powers would all be hung! Power, as Chairman Moa said, comes from the end of a barrel!

    Learn this phrase – “Might is right”. If you are going to oppose the world order, make dam sure you are going to win – Hitler was a prime example.

    Russia is not strong enough to take on the west in terms of force.

    In terms of military force and economics and political power and influence.

    Russia would struggle against china and the economic ramifications would put them both back 30 years... ie not to where they were 30 years ago, but to a place where it will take 30 years to get back to the position they are in now. in terms of their positions in comparison with the west.

    Western double speak where they talk about the greater good and right and wrong and good and evil but what they are really talking about is their own interests economic and political and more and more countries who liked the sound of justice and democracy and peace realise it was all just rubbish they used to justify the countries they stole from and walked all over.... it was the colonial language to justify their separation of the native from the land and its wealth...

    The US violates treaties signed nothing new here. Thats what happens when there is one superpower in the world that seeks globabal hegemony. Look at the Geneva convention on the torture of POW's in Iraq. They just bullS**tted around it using language of the document. When your the most unstoppable force on the planet, whose gonna stop your course of action? No one....

    Russia don't have the need to take on the west with military force. Russia's president already stated it reserves the right to first Strike capability if it feels threatened by Nato's Action via the Strategic Rocket Forces and Navy. Russia will only get involved when important regional interests are at sake like its mediteranian port in Syria, or CIS countries are attacked.

    The West are brilliant at global control or as our good firend Col.Eugene Krushchev "managed chaos". The west most important weapon is their psychological assests proliferated through globalisation. These include mass media and the internet ans they have the most advance technology to control such assests and develop them to the maximum capacity. Media especially creates perceptions===========> controls the mind of their citizens==========>keeps the trinity between state, military and population. Its seems Carl Von Clausewitz's influence went very deep into their psyche of their modus operandi. You will all notice that the west wages a large media campaign prior to engagement or conflict . This is to preserve the trinity.They justify their actions in the minds of their population very deeply now so that protests on the scale of Vietnam that took place in the US wouldn't do so again so their population will be giving full moral support to their leaders action and the military.This is where anti-NWO countries like Russia fail to do so both internally and globally. Sun Tzu called this winning without fighting and this is the most effecitve form of warfare. This is seen today in the arab spring.
    So for russia to retain its superpower status it must reinstate its nationalistic pride into its soldiers and population as seen in its great anthem and for instance the pride to serve in Russian VDV. It must use the enemy's greatest weapon "globalisation" against them, subdue the enemy without skill and break their trinity.The advantages also western forces have again is that they treat/reward their soldiers better. However as conscription fades out this will not be an issue.

    I don't agree that the west is brilliant at global control... I think the west is pretty good at convincing its own citizens that it is a force for good and truth, but I think most people in non western countries can see they clearly don't practise what they preach...

    I certainly agree that Russia needs a change in attitude in several areas and like anything else that will take time.

    Are Chemical Weapons WMD?

    Post  Kysusha on Wed Aug 29, 2012 9:35 am


    Oh look see what’s happening now in the world; regarding Syria. Note that the Frogs, a nation that has lost every war in modern history that they have started or been in, have now come out with the statement that IF Syria uses Chemical weapons it will be an invitation for foreign intervention!. How brave of them!

    Let’s just put that in perspective here – the AXIS OF EVIL is already intervening in Syria, the Frogs and HATO are in their up to their balls as it is, but that still isn’t enough for the Frogs, so they will ratchet up the game so that when they do get involved “officially” they can call help to HATO to get them out of the pooh they will get themselves into. Whereby, effectively passing the war onto others, like they have done through history!

    But what about the statement of theirs – isn’t this just George Bush all over again, with his WMD in Iraq? Syria has admitted that they possess Chemical weapons but have also stated that they would not use them against their own people. The opportunity is now set for the Axis of Evil to slip chemical weapons to the terrorist fighters and mercenaries in Syria so that they can use them and then call the UN to come and verify that Syria has used chemical weapons against it’s people – after all, how could innocent “freedom Fighters” get their hands on such weapons??

    Wake up, this ploy worked in Iraq, so they just trot the same tactic out under a slightly different guise. Here we go with another round of finger pointing at weapons of mass destruction! The real WMD is HATO and the Axis of Evil who have an agenda to cause untold bloodshed and misery around the world in countries that are stable and prosperous so that the Zionist controlled administrations in the West can further rob the people of the world.

    The UN has been hijacked – has been for a very long time and no honest outcome will ever emanate from the UN. We need a true world court to try the leaders of HATO and the Western powers for their callous acts against humanity.

    I don't think anyone will be fooled by the WMD charade again... no matter how convincing they try to make it all appear.

    In fact it just makes a real joke of the supposed threat of Saddams WMDs.

    The west is actively supporting a bunch of no hopers including the dreaded Al Quada to take over a country with significant amounts of WMDs... they are encouraging a rag tag group of armed nutters to over throw a legitimate government and thereby gain control of WMD stocks with no mandate from their own people, and bound by no international agreements on those WMDs.

    Yeah, I can see why the west wants to create that sort of situation...

    In a way I hope they get their way and then have to deal with "Syrian" WMD attacks on Israel, which will likely be the first order of business for them.

    Of course I don't really hope that because it would not just be bad for the Israelis, but it will be bad for the Syrian people.

    Many people say that syrias chemical weapons are definately for use against their own population because if they would be used for self defence they would be useless since NATO can easily avoid losses with its more than enough NBC protection and bashar knows that.

    Whats your opinion?

    I think the whole issue of Chemical Weapons is just a re-run of the Iraqi WMD lie that the Yanks used to bomb the crap out of a sovereign country which should have been allowed to develop their own defence arsenal – what about the Joos? They have WMD so any chance the Yanks will bomb the crap out of them???

    FUSUK are now trotting out the same scenario as Iraqi as a pretext to invade Syria – after all, it worked before and they have never been too inventive or imaginative – look at all the “coloured revolutions”. Get a scenario that works, control the media and the public will follow! Sheepeople are so easily lead. Only Russia/China are against them [at least they see the problem], but the rest of the Western world will blindly follow the piper off the cliff like a bunch of Lemmings.

    Chemical weapons are expensive to make and difficult to handle safely, and expensive to store.

    Why use chemical weapons against your own population when bullets and HE work just fine?

    Syria has Chemical weapons for the same reason everyone else has them... as a deterrent so that your potential enemies will never use them against you.

    That was the same reason there was little to no use of chem or bio weapons during WWII, because each side feared the other side had a more powerful weapon and just wanted an excuse to use it.

    If anything the presence of Chemical weapons... not just poisonous chemicals, but weaponised chemicals should be an alarm bell to say to the west they should not be supporting a rag tag bunch of foreigners and malcontents to take over Syria because that will result in them getting control of a lot of very dangerous weapons and systems.
