Quote:Fruits from the Tree of Malice
by Claire Berlinski
Newly translated documents show how far Soviet wickedness extended. In the Spring 2010 issue of City Journal, I described an archive of documents from Soviet government agencies smuggled to the West by the Russian researcher Pavel Stroilov and the Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky. These documents, I noted, were available to anyone who wanted to consult them. But nobody did. Publishers were indifferent. Only a fraction of the documents had been translated into English. This was, I argued, a symptom of the world’s dangerous indifference to the enormity of Communist crimes.
Within weeks of the article’s appearance, I received hundreds of e-mails. Many came from victims of Soviet Communism—there is no shortage of them—appalled that the documents were not better known. They volunteered to translate them. Thanks to their efforts, more have become available in English, and many of them are very much worth reading.
It is one thing to know abstractly, for example, that the Soviets sponsored terrorism in the Middle East. It is another to read a newly translated memorandum from longtime KGB head Yuri Andropov to Communist Party general secretary Leonid Brezhnev requesting authorization to fund a detailed plan by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) to kill civilians around the world....

We must continue to raise awareness: people must know of its achievements and the global reach it achieved before its tragic demise in 1991 due to betrayals at the top!
Does this mean I can release the full lot of Vernona Papers now? Or are we still holding those in reserve? They do like us now, right comrades? We are ready to take over worlds as proscribed, no?
Tell glorious People's Director to please give que for Revolution!
This post has me all nostalgic........sniff........sniff.
Let's see, ........dusting off an old LP. Yes, the Beatles loved us. See:
Now releasing State secrets is another matter. Dear Leader may believe in transparency, but, but, but that's something we just cannot do.
I've got that warm, tingly feeling now. Hey Comrades, remember?
Ahhhh the good old days. The threat of nuclear war was very real. It was always good for your current girlfriend;” But baby, we might all be gone tomorrow.” I remember October of ‘62. Many of our younger Comrades may not know that we were within minutes of an all out nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union. I had just a glance at the transcript of a call J.F.K. made to Nikita Krushchev, but I still remember most of it:
John F. Kennedy;
“Get me that damn shoe banger on the Red Phone. You heard me right, yes the Red Phone!
Hello? Nikita is that you? I don’t give a damn what he’s doing. Tell him it’s Kennedy on the Red Phone....................................................................................................................................
Nikita? Good, we need to talk. Why am I calling on the Red Phone? I’ll tell you why, I’m pissed. That’s why! I mean damn, Nikki! It wasn’t enough you backed that tin pot dictator Castro to take over Cuba. Do you know how many millions that cost me and Papa Joe? No, not Joe Stalin. My father Joe Kennedy. He’s still busting my balls for letting that happen. I could have used that money for my last campaign.
Anyway, damn where was I? Oh yes and now you’re putting up missile sites in Cuba. For crying out loud Nikki! I’ve got Congressmen throwing chairs out their windows and screaming;”Come and get me you Commie Bastards.” And most of them are hiding under their desks. The shit’s hitting the fan here Nikki and I got the nod from both houses to do whatever I got to do.
Watch your language there Nikki! You’re not talking to Dick Nixon here buddy. You’re talking to THE KENNEDY. Hell, it’s like I’m King around here. Can you say Camelot? That’s better. Hell you’re lucky I’m even giving you this call. I’m a Made Man Nikki. I was Made the second I was born.
What am I going to do? Well there’s an answer for that Nikki and I’ve already done it. Everything we’ve got is heading your way buddy and they’ll reach their Fail Safe points in about three minutes. Stop banging your shoe Nikki! That’s not going to get us anywhere. Oh and if they don’t get their recall codes by the time they reach those Fail Safes, their orders are to proceed to targets.
What? The People’s Radar? Sorry Nikki, those pilots are trained to fly those planes about 60 feet off the ground. Maybe some of your comrades will be able to hit them with some hammers or sickles as their jet exhaust cooks the chickens in the barnyard.
Retaliation? Really? I’ve got some Generals here that have assured me that each of those planes is carrying several large cans of whupp-ass. No, we’re not going to spank your donkey. You really need a better interpreter Nikki. We’re going to bomb your asses clear to China! I haven’t seen Generals this happy since we nuked Japan. Oh, forgot about that? Did we? Sure, go check with your boys. I’ll hold ........................................................................................................
Less than two minutes Nikki. Make a deal? What have you got in mind? You’ll give us Cuba and what? Give you Hawaii? If it were up to me I’d say yes. It would get the old man off my back, but the Generals are saying we may need Hawaii if North Korea or China starts some shit.
Anything else? The clock is ticking Nikki. Huh? You’ll pull all your missiles out of Cuba, but it’s all hands off your boy Castro? You know we’ll have to mess with him a little bit. Just to make it look good. That’s OK? Great! I’ll send the recall codes. You too Nikita. Have a nice day................................. I need a drink!"
*Special note: The above was my comment to a post by Comrade Tovarich -
News Flash: Iranian Nuclear Independence Day Announcement
I do have a small confession to make. Grigori told a fib about reading a transcript of that phone conversation. I was there and yes, Grigori was Spiritual Adviser to you know who.
All of your cartoon beatles are playing the instruments the same way. The bass player [Paul]
always used a left handed set and was the opposite of the others using right handed set up.
You just did this as a set up to see if anyone was paying attention.
People of the cube are very observant, nice try though!
Here's another observation:
The circled Comrade seemed rather nervous in the Soviet Power video (1:07). Noticing such a thing is a Red Flag for any Commissar worthy of the title Commissar. I wonder what he was thinking and why was he so nervous? Comrade Tooorisky? Anyone?
Valentines day is coming up and do not forget that special someone. I like M&M's myself.
Red RoosterExcellent Comrades!
Does this mean I can release the full lot of Vernona Papers now?
Rooster! I'm surprised at you. As Minister of State Security and keeper of the secret handshake and password you above all should know that all secrets are to be kept secret even if they aren't a secret anymore.
From the expression on this comrades face, he is maybe rendering a one finger salute to the one up front. As accidental as the involuntary finger extension may be, he has just realizied this is not a dream.
