Today I saw on the Dutch television "our friend Putin".
I think everyone should see that documentary.
It’s absolutely horrific what’s going on there. It’s mind dazzling that the Netherlands is currently negotiating with a country we should not deal anything with in the current state of affairs. We are weak, smiling at some Euro’s to gain with a fascists government where no law is in place and only the right of the strongest counts.
If there is any political party out there who has this on his agenda: stop any deals with Russia and make it clear to the public what’s going on and then you have my vote.
I think it’s best to watch the documentary to have your mouth just fall open of what is currently happening and how we, the Netherlands, are preferring oil and Euro’s over human rights and law. I can only hope that we secretly are planning in a much wider Western international secret gathering the downfall of this fascist. Life must be hard up there on the Gorilla Hill.
I joined the facebook community:
You can read more about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khodorkovsky
In short: he was once the wealthiest man in Russia. When Putin came to power most oil businessman fled but he stayed. He was pro democratic party’s. After Putin seized all other oil companies in a pure dictatorship style he put them under control of himself via a circle of friends and he arrested Khodorkovsky and simply put him in jail, took his complete company and gave it to a friend who is currently running the profits from it. Khodorkovsky is still under arrest (since October 25, 2003).
It is absolutely unbelievable that you can just take whatever you want and even simply put the wealthiest man in Russia in jail and take away his complete company and well.. take it… unbelievable? Well… in the documentary there are more examples of unbelievable things happening over there. I hope no one invests any money in there.
I’ve read Planet of the Apes and I agree with Pierre Boulle no matter at what stage in history or whatever form of government you look there will always be the Gorilla’s who are in charge battling it out under themselves on the Gorilla Hill who is the biggest Gorilla. The rest of us are chimps and orang utans.
Fine. I can live with that. Apparently for the past 35.000 years we somehow are organized like that in a very natural way. Good.
What is not good, even in nature, if one of the Gorilla’s takes it a step too far. This Gorilla and the little hill under him has taken it a step too far. While I am a chimp I’m looking for an orang utan who can convey this message. And the good thing is, at least over here, that millions of chimps can change the behavior of gorilla’s even if they don’t want to.
Otherwise we are destined in the long run for another big war and my advise would be to go for plan B and prepare for that in a political sense.
To stay up to date just follow what this Putin guy is doing e.g.: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8682108.stm.
If I would be a gorilla I would now very fast team-up with all other like-minded gorilla’s out there in the International arena to prevent him attacking Gorilla by Gorilla and basically stand as one big Gorilla with one voice. That will strengthen the misguided feeling of the brainwashed part of the Russian population that "the West is against them" but the other alternative is losing everything in the long run.
