Gregory Feifer | Preparing for War in Lithuania

By Gregory Feifer

Visitors to Lithuania would be forgiven for failing to realize just how seriously its people take Russia. From Klaipeda to Vilnius, ordinary Lithuanians are preparing for the day that Russian President Vladimir Putin turns from Crimea and the civil war in eastern Ukraine toward them or their neighbors in Latvia and Estonia. Their jitters are understandable; every family in the Baltics has direct experience with Russian occupation. Jurgita Ludaviciene, a book editor, told me that when word of the Soviet invasion came in 1944, her grandfather—a reserve officer in the Lithuanian army—had only two hours to decide what to do. Since the Soviets would almost certainly have sent him to the Gulag, he fled west, leaving behind his wife and two daughters. They never saw him again.
Bad memories and fears of Russia are an old trope here. Once part of the powerful Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Lithuania was first swallowed by the Russian Empire in the eighteenth century. Briefly independent after World War I, it was next invaded by the Soviet Union after Moscow signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact with Nazi Germany in 1939. After the war, many tens of thousands like Ludaviciene’s grandfather fled and 250,000 were killed or sent to the Gulag.
For her part, Ludaviciene is making plans. “I don’t want to have only two hours to decide what to do if the Russians invade,” she says. She has two children of her own—both girls, which is considered lucky. “Others are trying to figure out how to ensure their sons don’t have to fight.”
But they might have to. Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite has called the country’s massive neighbor to the east a “terrorist state.” The outspoken center-right leader is the only EU head of state to have openly promised to send weapons to Ukraine. She has also announced a bill that would reinstate the draft to protect her country from a possible Russian invasion.
As Western countries debate how to confront Putin, this former Soviet republic of 3.5 million people—now a member of the European Union, NATO, and as of January, the eurozone—has emerged as a leading voice for action. If Russia’s “open aggression against its neighbor is not stopped,” Grybauskaite warned recently, “then that aggression might spread further into Europe.” That is not to say that Lithuanians are frothing hawks. They are mostly circumspect about their worries and tend to be apologetic about the possibility of appearing needlessly hysterical. But they believe that the centuries they spent under Russian rule and their proximity to Moscow give them important insight into the Kremlin's thinking, and they worry their voices are being drowned out by the self-interest and inertia of Europeans further west.
On the Russian side, the Kremlin has called Lithuania's support for Ukraine a “provocation” that undermines a peaceful settlement there. As such, Lithuania has become a front line of Moscow’s new Cold War with the West. In the first ten months of 2014, NATO scrambled its fighter jets more than 130 times to intercept Russian planes near Lithuania, up from only four times in 2010.
Lithuania is particularly exposed because it borders the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, located between Poland and Lithuania. Kaliningrad was a closed military zone during the Cold War. Moscow now uses it as a station for missiles that it says are pointed at European countries. Russia carried out a military drill in Kaliningrad last January that involved some 9,000 soldiers and more than 55 naval vessels from its Baltic Sea Fleet. Similar drills preceded Russia’s invasion of Georgia in 2008 as well as its annexation of Crimea.
Beyond brute force, Lithuanians also fear the less visible aspects of Moscow’s so-called hybrid war. Russia has threatened to reopen criminal investigations against several thousand Lithuanians who defied the Soviet draft in 1990 and 1991. And there are worries that the Kremlin is seeking to exploit activists from Lithuania’s small but vocal minority Polish community, which often opposes government policies. The leader of a group called the Polish Election Action Alliance in Lithuania, who often supports Moscow’s line on Ukraine, is suspected of having ties to the Kremlin.
Whether or not Moscow is directing such activists in Lithuania, concerns about pro-Russian influence are growing. Even the setting up of an innocuous-looking outdoor stage to mark Maslenitsa—the Russian Orthodox celebration that precedes Lent—on a small square in Vilnius’s beautiful Baroque Old Town raised suspicions. Loudspeakers broadcast pop music and appeals for passersby to join in, but only a few dallied.
That may be unsurprising in a country where ethnic Russians make up less than six percent of Lithuania's population. Although most people over 30 still speak Russian, almost no one younger than that understands the former lingua franca. But Lithuanians do worry about neighboring Latvia, where ethnic Russians make up a quarter of the population and lax regulations have helped turn the country into a major laundering center for Russian cash. Ethnic Russians compose a quarter of Estonia’s population, too. If Putin decides to invade either country or both, citing the old gem about protecting rights of Russians abroad, Lithuania would surely follow.
None of this is lost on the rest of the West. Last month, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon warned of a “real and present danger” of Russia potentially trying to destabilize the Baltics with tactics similar to those it has used in Ukraine. Since that crisis began, NATO has moved to reassure its eastern-most members by updating response plans and announcing that it would establish new command centers in six countries that would oversee a new rapid-response force of around 5,000 troops. In preparation for such a battle, in January, Lithuania’s Defense Ministry distributed a manual to soldiers and civilians advising what to do in the event of a foreign invasion. “Keep a sound mind, don’t panic, and don’t lose clear thinking,” it read. “Gunshots just outside your window are not the end of the world.”
Although Lithuanians do see NATO as their best guarantee of independence, many question whether the alliance’s Article 5—which stipulates that an armed attack against one member represents an attack against all—would be invoked if Russia invaded Lithuania. Many take the EU’s acquiescence to Moscow in Ukraine as an ominous sign. Rimvydas Valatka, editor of the news website 15 Min and one of the country’s leading political commentators, blames self-interest across Europe, which relies on energy and other business deals with Russia. “It’s understandable the West isn’t supplying weapons to Ukraine—they don’t want to get involved if they can avoid it,” he says. “Even Franco’s Spain stayed out of World War II, so why would you expect them to become involved now?”
But the overwhelming attitude toward perceived Western inaction over Ukraine is of philosophical resignation rather than anger. “Of course it’s difficult for the EU’s 28 members to agree on anything,” a university student told me. Although Valatka criticizes German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other European leaders for refusing to arm Ukraine, he doesn’t believe that Lithuanian politicians should openly protest. “You have only the allies you have,” he says. “Getting into arguments would only help the Russians undermine European unity.”
Valatka also questions Grybauskaite’s motives. With two years left in her second (and last) term, her uncompromising manner has earned her the nickname Iron Lady. But Grybauskaite has been accused of harboring strong communist sympathies in her youth, most recently in the unflattering unauthorized biography Red Dalia, copies of which were mysteriously delivered to members of the European Parliament in December. Grybauskaite studied in St. Petersburg—then called Leningrad—in the 1980s and resigned from the Communist Party later than many other Lithuanians. “It’s not clear exactly what she was doing in the last years of Communist rule when everyone else was fighting against it,” Valatka says. Now she’s either “protesting too much or else displaying the zeal of the converted,” he says of her standing up to Russia, “but at least she’s on the right side.”
For now, Lithuanians see their main role as battling the many myths surrounding Moscow’s actions. Kremlin propaganda has helped reinforce a strong current of argument among some in the West that Putin is justified because Ukraine and Russia share a single culture, and that Ukraine by itself is not a viable state. Although some Lithuanian politicians have suggested banning Russian propaganda, a panel at a book fair I attended last month focused on maintaining a “multiplicity of narratives.” The venerated poet Tomas Venclova, who teaches at Yale, echoed the common view by saying censorship would be a “road to ruin … It’s a lazy answer to a very difficult problem.” Others agree, saying that the particular nature of Lithuania’s plurality gives its arguments strength. “We’re a hybrid society,” the veteran journalist Ramunas Bogdanas told me. “We understand the Soviet system because we were part of it and now it’s our role to speak the truth to the West, which doesn’t understand the threat.”
For now, Lithuanians are watching Ukraine and hoping for the best. “We cry for Ukraine,” another editor told me. They also understand that confronting Moscow will require a long, hard struggle. “I won’t live to see the day when Russia is no longer a threat,” Lolita Varanaviciene, the head of one of the country’s main publishing houses, said, shaking her head. “I realize that now.”

Suenan tambores de guerra (y un bongó castrista) en Europa

cubanalisis

questiondigital.com
No quiero exagerar, pero en estos momentos el mundo visto desde España es mucho más amenazador que el que observan mis amigos desde las playas floridanas. Ellos están casi a un tiro de piedra de Cuba, y viven con intensidad cualquier detalle que repercuta en la Isla, en especial todo lo que cambie en las relaciones entre Estados Unidos y el régimen de La Habana. Por mi parte, 70 años después de la derrota nazi, veo venir un choque militar que puede involucrar no solo el conflicto en Ucrania, sino a los países del Báltico miembros de la Unión Europea, debido a nuevas provocaciones rusas, como fuera el envío de dos bombarderos nucleares al Canal de la Mancha.

Todos los gobiernos del viejo continente están alarmados, pero no aceptan la propuesta de Estados Unidos de dar ayuda militar al gobierno de Kiev, aunque Rusia ha dotado a los separatistas de de tanques, transportes blindados para infantería, cohetería reactiva móvil y sistemas de defensa antiaérea De ahí que este fin de semana se haya producido una reunión de urgencia en Moscú entre Ángela Merkel, François Hollande y Vladimir Putin para frenar los combates entre los pro-rusos y las tropas gubernamentales ucranianas, mediante el despliegue entre ambas fuerzas de un contingente de cascos azules.

Raúl Castro repite las mentiras de Putin

Lo que es seguro es que ningún país de la Unión Europea puede aceptar estas palabras del dictador cubano Raúl Castro en la III Cumbre de la CELAC:

Reiteramos la preocupación por los enormes y crecientes gastos militares impuestos al mundo por Estados Unidos y la OTAN, así como el intento de extender la agresiva presencia de esta hasta las fronteras de Rusia, con la cual tenemos históricas y fraternales relaciones, mutuamente provechosas. Declaramos enérgica oposición a la imposición de sanciones unilaterales e injustas contra esa nación. (1)

No hay mejor respuesta a esa falacia del anciano general sin batallas que un extracto del artículo del profesor Thimothy Garton Ash, que ha sido ampliamente difundido por la prensa mundial:

Vladímir Putin es el Slobodan Milosevic de la antigua Unión Soviética: igual de malvado, pero más grande. Detrás de una cortina de mentiras, ha renovado su empeño en crear un seudo-estado marioneta en el este de Ucrania. En el puerto de Mariupol, en el mar Negro, mueren inocentes. En la asediada Debaltseve, una mujer recoge agua de un charco enorme en la carretera. Los escombros de lo que era el aeropuerto de Donetsk evocan una escena propia de la atribulada Siria. En este conflicto armado han muerto ya alrededor de 5.000 personas, y más de 500.000 han tenido que dejar sus hogares. Europa, preocupada por Grecia y la eurozona, está dejando que se produzca otra Bosnia ante sus propias puertas. Despierta, Europa. (2)

Es importante señalar que las opiniones de Castro sobre Rusia y la OTAN no recibieron apoyo alguno en la Declaración de la Cumbre de Costa Rica. Fue un solo de bongó y no un tambor de guerra, porque de veras aquellos tiempos de aventurerismo militar han pasado. Por cierto, tampoco se toca en la declaración ni el tema de la devolución de la base de Guantánamo, ni el disparatado reclamo de indemnización por el embargo.

Como dice mi colega y amigo Eugenio Yáñez, esos temas eran “para La Caverna en la Isla: los “come-candela”, los “patria o muerte”, los de “pa’lo que sea, Fidel, pa’lo que sea”…” (3). Yo creo como él, que “[n]inguno de los dos hermanos Castro es suicida como para rechazar, en medio del caos cubano creado por ellos mismos, la oportunidad de mantenerse en el poder con dólares de EEUU”. (3)

Lo conversado en secreto con los norteamericanos durante 18 meses no se puede torpedear con un discurso aunque en el mismo se hagan nuevas exigencias desproporcionadas. Con Washington no cabe la marcha atrás, so pena de recibir la retirada de lo ya acordado. Ni los políticos ni el pueblo norteamericanos pueden aceptar que le escupan a su presidente la bandeja de las ofertas, como le hicieron a George W. en Mar del Plata.

Eso sí, por otro lado, las críticas del jefe del régimen a la Unión Europea por sus sanciones a Rusia añaden nuevas asperezas al ya viciado ambiente de la tercera ronda de negociaciones con la Unión Europea, -ya pospuesta por dos meses-, porque se trata de negociar un acuerdo de diálogo político y cooperación que tiene que ver con derechos y libertades para los cubanos, y eso la dictadura cubana ni lo va a abordar en serio, ni puede hacerlo sin renunciar a su esencia. No es que vayan a hacer descarrilar el diálogo pero los europeos deben saber que lo que se les pide son inversiones y donativos y que de lo otro, nada, ni a Washington, ni a Bruselas.

El error de diseño de la CELAC

En los últimos 15 años los gobiernos latinoamericanos han seguido un rumbo que los aparta de Estados Unidos. Todo comenzó en la IV Cumbre de las Américas de noviembre del 2005 en Mar del Plata, con el rechazo a la propuesta de George W. Bush de constituir un Área de Libre Comercio de las Américas. El apoyo de unos y el silencio de otros le hicieron el juego a Lula da Silva, Hugo Chávez y Néstor Kirchner, y aunque el gran instigador, Fidel Castro, estaba ausente, vio cumplido su sueño al saber que el presidente de los Estados Unidos era ninguneado en una reunión hemisférica.

Desde entonces, todo ha seguido “cuesta abajo” como en el tango. Los gobernantes regionales, no contentos con un embrión de integración en Mercosur, después crearon Unasur, y actualmente están agrupados en numerosas coaliciones subregionales. Una de ellas, el ALBA, empezó una política de subsidios a cambio de respaldo político a posiciones antinorteamericanas, y hoy existen más de diez bloques de todo tipo en el hemisferio. La Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños (CELAC) con 33 miembros es la mayor de todas, pero cinco años después de haberse constituido aún no se ha estructurado para la integración económica.

La CELAC tiene un error de diseño por excluir a Estados Unidos y Canadá, por eso la verdadera cumbre hemisférica no es la que acaba de terminar en Costa Rica, sino la de las Américas que auspicia la OEA, y que se celebra generalmente cada tres años. Eso se corrobora por la importancia que dan todos los países del continente a la VII Cumbre de Panamá que se celebrará los días 10 y 11 del próximo mes de abril, y en la que se espera que coincidan Raúl Castro y el presidente Obama. Estados Unidos, con un crecimiento mayor que todos los demás de Occidente, que junto a Canadá y México tiene en estos momentos un potencial energético superior al de la Península Arábiga, por su cercanía y su poderío es insustituible en América.

Por eso la gran nación norteamericana mantiene un sistema de Tratados de Libre Comercio con un gran número de sus vecinos y sigue dando nuevos pasos en la cooperación, como la “Iniciativa de Seguridad Energética para el Caribe”, cuya reunión cumbre se celebró a fines de enero en Washington y a la que acudieron varios primeros ministros caribeños, la vicepresidenta de República Dominicana y el del Fondo Monetario Internacional.

En esta reunión el vicepresidente Biden anunció que un grupo de inversionistas norteamericanos con respaldo gubernamental va a invertir en junio 90 millones de dólares en un proyecto de energía eólica en Jamaica, y la USAID va a hacer un donativo de otros 10 millones para el abastecimiento energético de ese país. También dijo que la agencia de Comercio y Desarrollo de EEUU va a hacer tres nuevos donativos a la República Dominicana en apoyo a sus planes energéticos. (4)

Pero, ¿saben una cosa? Según el presidente de Venezuela, ese no fue el verdadero propósito de la reunión de energía celebrada en Washington. Como recoge la BBC: “hablando en cadena nacional de radio y televisión, Maduro dijo que Joe Biden expresó a mandatarios y primeros ministros de países latinoamericanos y del Caribe que el gobierno venezolano sería derrocado”. (5)

No hay que ser muy mal pensado para imaginarse que esa reacción del sucesor de Chávez tiene que ver con que la crisis por la que pasa la “revolución bolivariana” le impide cumplir las promesas de subsidio petrolero de Petrocaribe.  Por eso Nicolás Maduro le sube la parada al perro del hortelano: ni come, ni deja comer, y además le enseña los dientes al que trae más comida.

¿Es un fantasma, o es un cadáver lo que recorre Europa?

Diosdado Cabello no solo es considerado rival político de Maduro, sino que compite favorablemente en disparates con el elegido por el difunto Hugo Chávez. El triunfo de la coalición radical Syriza en las elecciones griegas del 25 de enero, y las encuestas favorables en España al nuevo partido Podemos, le hicieron declarar eufórico:

“Ahí está lo que pasó en Grecia, ahí está lo que va a pasar en España más temprano que tarde. Eso es el chavismo, que anda dando la vuelta al mundo entero” (6).

Exagera el  antiguo golpista y ahora presidente de una Asamblea Nacional bastante unánime en la bancada oficialista, y no debería poner en evidencia a sus camaradas españoles que están empeñados en  negar que su programa oculto incluye un gobierno de corte chavista en La Moncloa. Solo las graves consecuencias sociales de la fuerte crisis económica de la que ya está emergiendo España pueden explicar la ceguera de quienes más que militantes son devotos de Podemos.

Dentro y fuera de la península se debe divulgar que tanto su líder máximo, Pablo Iglesias, como sus principales colaboradores, han recibido la acogida y el apoyo material de los gobiernos de izquierda de Venezuela, Ecuador y Bolivia, y con la exagerada retribución por sus actividades “académicas” en esos países, han financiado la fundación de su partido.

Pero no solo hubo apoyo venezolano a Podemos: desde septiembre del 2010 el entonces embajador del gobierno de Chávez en Grecia y hoy el líder de Syriza y del gobierno, Alexis Tsipras, se relacionaron para impulsar en el país heleno la campaña “Manos fuera de Venezuela”. Según el periodista Nelson Bocaranda, Tsipras y otros izquierdistas griegos

fueron financiados desde Venezuela por recomendación de Juan Carlos Monedero y Pablo Iglesias Turión, asesores en ese momento del presidente venezolano”. (7)

Como apunta el periodista venezolano, debido a esa estrecha relación han ocurrido otras intromisiones en esos catorce años transcurridos:

Hasta un busto de Chávez colocaron en una calle de Atenas (…) el nuevo premier es Alexis Tsipras quien con razones de financiamiento ha estado exageradamente agradecido al gobierno venezolano y lo usa como ejemplo de revolución socialista comunista. Su razón tenía para asistir al funeral del desaparecido caudillo y dejarse fotografiar compungido”. (7)

Rusia necesita una Europa débil

Para sorpresa de muchos que piensan que Moscú es proclive a financiar a los partidos de izquierda, como en los tiempos soviéticos, esto ha cambiado. Hay varios partidos de derecha como La Liga Norte de Italia y el Ataka de Bulgaria que tienen fuertes lazos con el gobierno de Putin, y más allá de esos vínculos el partido Jobbik de Hungría está siendo investigado por supuesto financiamiento de Rusia.

Pero quizás el ejemplo más notable es que un banco vinculado al Kremlin ha hecho un préstamo al partido Frente Nacional de Francia por valor de 9 millones de euros (10,3millones de dólares). Recordemos que este es un partido de extrema derecha que tiene un programa antiinmigrantes y euro-escéptico, y que en las elecciones de mayo pasado al Parlamento Europeo se consagró como el primer partido de Francia con un 25% de los votos. Aunque Marine Le Pen, la presidenta del Frente, lo desmiente, hay otros dirigentes de su partido que aseguran que este es solo un primer préstamo, y que ese banco va a otorgar una suma total de 40 millones de euros (45 millones de dólares) a lo largo de 30 meses para que el partido alcance la mayoría en las elecciones regionales del 2016 y en las presidenciales francesas del 2017. (8)

Ya sean fuerzas de izquierda o de derecha, una Europa débil es lo que Rusia necesita para sus planes de volver a las viejas fronteras soviéticas. Para lograrlo, Vladimir Putin no dudará en emplear todos los medios, incluidos los financieros, aunque eso signifique que siga decayendo el nivel de vida de la población rusa, afectada ya por la caída del precio del petróleo, la devaluación del rublo y las sanciones de la Unión Europea por la agresión a Ucrania. Ya el premier Tsipras está buscando el apoyo de Moscú para aliviar la enorme deuda de Grecia, y ha anunciado la intención de viajar allí en mayo para la conmemoración del 70 aniversario de la derrota del fascismo.

No sería sorpresa que se encuentre allí con Raúl Castro, cuyo nuevo viaje a Rusia será este año, según ha revelado el viceministro de exteriores ruso. ¡Qué mejor ocasión para congraciarse con el generalato ruso que ver el desfile desde el Mausoleo de Lenin junto a sus ancianos camaradas de espionaje, amenazas nucleares e intervenciones armadas!

¡Cómo no va a saludar el endurecimiento del gran merengue soviético que se desinfló!

Por su edad, aquellos tiempos no volverán para él, pero es mucho más importante que no vuelvan nunca jamás, ni para los cubanos ni para los europeos.

Putin gets permission to use Russian military in Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin received permission Saturday from parliament to mobilize the country's military in Ukraine.
Parliament voted unanimously on the request and also recommended that Moscow's ambassador be recalled from Washington over earlier comments made by President Obama.
Putin says the move is needed to protect ethnic Russians and the personnel of a Russian military base in Ukraine's strategic region of Crimea. The request comes a day after President Obama warned Moscow that "there will be costs" if it intervenes militarily in Ukraine.
"I'm submitting a request for using the armed forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine pending the normalization of the socio-political situation in that country," Putin said before the vote.
Putin's call came as pro-Russian demonstrations broke out in Ukraine's Russian-speaking east, where protesters raised Russian flags and beat up supporters of the new Ukrainian government.
Russia's move sharply raised the stakes in the conflict following the ouster of Ukraine's pro-Russian president last week by a protest movement aimed at turning Ukraine toward the European Union and away from Russia. Ukraine has accused Russia of a "military invasion and occupation" -- a claim that brought an alarming new dimension to the crisis, and raised fears that Moscow is moving to intervene on the strategic peninsula where Russia's Black Sea fleet is based.
The move also appears to formalize what Ukrainian officials described as an ongoing deployment of Russian troops in the strategic region of Crimea. His motion loosely refers to the "territory of Ukraine" rather than specifically to Crimea, raising the possibility that Moscow could use military force in other Russian-speaking provinces in eastern and southern Ukraine where many oppose the new authorities in Kiev.
In Crimea, the pro-Russian regional prime minister had earlier claimed control of the military and police there and asked Putin for help in keeping peace, sharpening the discord between the two neighboring Slavic countries.
Sergei Aksenov, the head of the main pro-Russia party on the peninsula, said in a statement reported by local and Russian news agencies that he appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin "for assistance in guaranteeing peace and calmness on the territory of the autonomous republic of Crimea."
Aksenov declared that the armed forces, the police, the national security service and border guards will answer only to his orders. He said any commanders who don't agree should leave their posts.
Russia's Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, said unidentified gunmen sent by Kiev had attempted overnight to seize the Crimea region's Interior Ministry offices and that people had been wounded in the "treacherous provocation," Reuters reported.
Ukrainian border guard vessels were put on combat alert in the Crimea region on Saturday and were leaving port to prevent the capture of military bases and ships, Interfax news agency quoted the border guard service as saying, according to Reuters.
Russian troops moved into Crimea Friday, U.S. officials told Fox News, prompting Ukraine to accuse Russia of an "armed invasion." 
Ukraine's defense minister said on Saturday Russia had “recently'' brought 6,000 additional personnel into Ukraine and that the Ukrainian military were on high alert in the Crimea region, Reuters reported.
Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk opened a cabinet meeting by calling on Russia not to provoke discord in Crimea.
"We call on the government and authorities of Russia to recall their forces, and to return them to their stations," Yatsenyuk was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency. "Russian partners, stop provoking civil and military resistance in Ukraine.”
At the White House, President Obama said the U.S. government is "deeply concerned" by reports of Russian "military movements" and warned any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty would be "deeply destabilizing."
U.S. officials told Fox News they see “evidence of air and maritime movement into and out of Crimea by Russian forces” although the Pentagon declined to officially "characterize" the movement.
Earlier Friday, Agence France Press quoted a top Ukranian official as saying Russian aircraft carrying nearly 2,000 suspected troops have landed at a military air base near the regional capital of the restive Crimean peninsula.
A spokesman for the Ukrainian border service said eight Russian transport planes have landed in Crimea with unknown cargo.
Serhiy Astakhov told The Associated Press that the Il-76 planes arrived unexpectedly Friday and were given permission to land, one after the other, at Gvardeiskoye air base, north of the regional capital, Simferopol.
Astakhov said the people in the planes refused to identify themselves and waved off customs officials, saying they didn't require their services.
Earlier in the day, Russian armored vehicles rumbled across Crimea and reports surfaced of troops being deployed at airports and a coast guard base – signs of a more heavy-handed approach to the crisis from Moscow.

Cuba: Hallan bombas lanzadas en invasión por Playa Girón

Por primera vez, dos bombas de fragmentación lanzadas por la aviación que apoyó la fallida invasión a Cuba por Playa Girón en 1961, fueron halladas y desactivadas por especialistas de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias y el ministerio del Interior, informó hoy una emisora local.
Radio Reloj indicó que las dos bombas de 150 libras y fabricación estadounidense fueron descubiertas de forma ocasional en un apartado punto de la Ciénaga de Zapata, en el sur de la occidental provincia de Matanzas.
Los expertos suponen que los dos artefactos explosivos fueron arrojados por pilotos enemigos "para aligerar peso en las naves durante su huida, al conocer la derrota", apuntó la nota.
Según la emisora, una de esas bombas fue detonada como medida de seguridad, mientras que la otra "pasará a los fondos del Museo de Playa Girón (Matanzas), pues no representa peligro".
El 17 de abril de 1961, unos 1.500 exiliados cubanos adiestrados y dirigidos por la Agencia Central de Inteligencia (CIA) de Estados Unidos desembarcaron en Playa Girón, en la Bahía de Cochinos, cercana a la Ciénaga, para derrocar a la revolución liderada por Fidel Castro.
Su plan era despejar el camino para la llegada desde Miami de un"gobierno provisional" y que éste reclamara desde Cuba una intervención militar de Estados Unidos.
Pero dicha intervención nunca se produjo pues menos de 72 horas después del inicio de la agresión, el 19 de abril, las fuerzas revolucionarias habían capturado ya a los últimos mercenarios, quienes encontraron una fuerte resistencia al llegar a Cuba.
Lejos de conseguir sus propósitos, la operación destruyó el mito de la invencibilidad de Washington, reforzó el liderazgo de Castro y acercó a Cuba todavía más a la Unión Soviética.

Mikhail Kalashnikov, inventor of the AK-47, died at age of 94

"I sleep well. It's the politicians who are to blame for failing to come to an agreement and resorting to violence," he said in 2007.
Kalashnikov died in a hospital in Izhevsk, the capital of the Udmurtia republic where he lived, said Viktor Chulkov, a spokesman for the republic's president. He did not give a cause of death. Kalashnikov had been hospitalized for the past month with unspecified health problems.
The AK-47 — "Avtomat Kalashnikov" and the year it went into production — is the world's most popular firearm, favored by guerrillas, terrorists and the soldiers of many armies. An estimated 100 million guns are spread worldwide.
Though it isn't especially accurate, its ruggedness and simplicity are exemplary: it performs in sandy or wet conditions that jam more sophisticated weapons such as the U.S. M-16.
"During the Vietnam war, American soldiers would throw away their M-16s to grab AK-47s and bullets for it from dead Vietnamese soldiers," Kalashnikov said in July 2007 at a ceremony marking the rifle's 60th anniversary.
The weapon's suitability for jungle and desert fighting made it nearly ideal for the Third World insurgents backed by the Soviet Union, and Moscow not only distributed the AK-47 widely but also licensed its production in some 30 other countries.
The gun's status among revolutionaries and national-liberation struggles is enshrined on the flag of Mozambique.
Kalashnikov, born into a peasant family in Siberia, began his working life as a railroad clerk. After he joined the Red Army in 1938, he began to show mechanical flair by inventing several modifications for Soviet tanks.
The moment that firmly set his course was in the 1941 battle of Bryansk against Nazi forces, when a shell hit his tank. Recovering from wounds in the hospital, Kalashnikov brooded about the superior automatic rifles he'd seen the Nazis deploy; his rough ideas and revisions bore fruit five years later.
"Blame the Nazi Germans for making me become a gun designer," said Kalashnikov. "I always wanted to construct agricultural machinery."
In 2007, President Vladimir Putin praised him, saying "The Kalashnikov rifle is a symbol of the creative genius of our people."
Over his career, he was decorated with numerous honors, including the Hero of Socialist Labor and Order of Lenin and Stalin Prize. But because his invention was never patented, he didn't get rich off royalties.
"At that time in our country patenting inventions wasn't an issue. We worked for Socialist society, for the good of the people, which I never regret," he once said.
Kalashnikov continued working into his late 80s as chief designer of the Izmash company that first built the AK-47. He also traveled the world helping Russia negotiate new arms deals, and he wrote books on his life, about arms and about youth education.
"After the collapse of the great and mighty Soviet Union so much crap has been imposed on us, especially on the younger generation," he said. "I wrote six books to help them find their way in life."
He said he was proud of his bronze bust installed in his native village of Kurya in the Siberian region of Altai. He said newlyweds bring flowers to the bust. "They whisper 'Uncle Misha, wish us happiness and healthy kids,'" he said. "What other gun designer can boast of that?"

10 things about Mikhail Kalashnikov

By ANDREA DRUSCH 
Mikhail Kalashnikov, inventor of the AK-47, died at age 94 Monday after a decorated career in the Russian military. His signature invention has been reproduced more than 100 million times since 2009, and is the world’s most popular firearm. Here are 10 things you should know about Mikhail Kalashnikov:
1. He aspired to be a poet. As a boy, Kalashnikov loved machinery but also had an affinity for poetry. He wrote poetry all his life, along with six books.
2. He once hitchhiked home to Russia. Kalashnikov was born in Kurya, Russia, but his family was deported to Siberia under the Stalin regime when he was a child. He left them to return to Kurya after the seventh grade, hitch-hiking nearly 1,000 kilometers, or more than 600 miles.
3. His son is also an arms dealer. Kalashnikov had four children with his engineer wife, Ekaterina Viktorovna Moiseyeva. Their youngest son, Victor, is a prominent small arms dealer who invented the PP-19 Bizon submachine gun.
4. He was injured in the military. Kalashnikov joined the military at 19 and served in the Russian tank division, where he invented improvements to the tanks. When he was injured by the Nazis in the Battle of Bryansk, he began working on weapons creation throughout his recovery.
5. The AK-47 is named after him. Kalashnikov’s signature invention, the AK-47 stands for “Avtomat Kalashnikov.” Avtomat is Russian for “automatic,” and 1947 was the year he invented it at age 28.
6. He has a line of vodka. Produced in St. Petersburg, Kalashnikov Vodka uses water from Lake Ladoga and is classified as a luxury export. It’s one degree stronger than regular vodka and sometimes called “military strength.”
7. He wasn’t motivated by money. Kalashnikov often said money wasn’t important to him but that he was motivated by service to his country. He was driven to design his first rifle by early Russian defeats in WWII to better-armed Germans. “I don’t like luxury,” he said. “I am after a simple decent life.”
8. He was a hunter. Kalashnikov took up hunting with his father to feed his family. He remained an avid hunter for the rest of his life, including a yearly moose hunting trip up into his 90s.
9. He had a big family. Kalashnikov was the 17th of 19 children born to his peasant parents. Only eight children survived to adulthood, and at age 6, Kalashnikov nearly died of illness himself.
10. He regretted terrorists getting hold of his inventions. At 82, Kalashnikov said he was proud of his invention, but that if he had it to do over again, he would invent something less destructive. “I would prefer to have invented a machine that people could use and that would help farmers with their work — for example, a lawnmower,” he said. However, asked how he felt about sleeping knowing that many had died from his work, he answered: “‘I sleep very well, thank you.”

North Korea reportedly threatens — by fax — to attack South Korea 'without notice'

Menacing language from North Korea is nothing new. Neither is its office technology.
A South Korean news agency reported Friday that the North has threatened a “merciless” attack without notice in response to anti-North rallies this week — and that it sent the warning by fax.
It’s the latest provocation from North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, who, at 30 years old, was born not long before the fax entered its golden age of curling paper, smudgy printing and shrieking modems.
The threat was sent by the North Korean military, according to the Yonhap news agency. It arrived, apparently without a paper jam, at the South Korean National Security Council.
NBC News was unable to independently verify the report.
The military apparently condemned rallies by several conservative groups and North Korean defectors that took place in the South on Tuesday, saying they insulted North Korea’s “highest dignity,” referring to Kim.
The rallies were held on the second anniversary of the death of Kim Jong Il, the younger Kim’s father, who was known as the Dear Leader and ruled the North from 1994 until his death in 2011. At the demonstrations, to protest authoritarian rule and North Korean human rights abuses, some people burned photos of the younger Kim.

Chinese naval vessel tries to force U.S. warship to stop in international waters

By Bill Gertz/
A Chinese naval vessel tried to force a U.S. guided missile warship to stop in international waters recently, causing a tense military standoff in the latest case of Chinese maritime harassment, according to defense officials.
The guided missile cruiser USS Cowpens, which recently took part in disaster relief operations in the Philippines, was confronted by Chinese warships in the South China Sea near Beijing’s new aircraft carrier Liaoning, according to officials familiar with the incident.
“On December 5th, while lawfully operating in international waters in the South China Sea, USS Cowpens and a PLA Navy vessel had an encounter that required maneuvering to avoid a collision,” a Navy official said.
“This incident underscores the need to ensure the highest standards of professional seamanship, including communications between vessels, to mitigate the risk of an unintended incident or mishap.”
A State Department official said the U.S. government issued protests to China in both Washington and Beijing in both diplomatic and military channels.
The Cowpens was conducting surveillance of the Liaoning at the time. The carrier had recently sailed from the port of Qingdao on the northern Chinese coast into the South China Sea.
According to the officials, the run-in began after a Chinese navy vessel sent a hailing warning and ordered the Cowpens to stop. The cruiser continued on its course and refused the order because it was operating in international waters.

U.S. bombers fly over disputed island chain without informing China

Kyodo via Reuters file
A group of disputed islands, known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, is seen in the East China Sea. Japan and the United States sharply criticized China's move to impose new rules on airspace over islands at the heart of a territorial dispute with Tokyo.
Two American B-52 bombers flew over a disputed island chain in the East China Sea on Monday evening, a U.S. defense official confirmed, just days after the Chinese government included the area in an air defense identification zone.
The official said the flight was a training mission and the bombers were not armed. The flight was first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.
The Chinese announced over the weekend they were expanding their air defense identification zone to include the islands, known as Diaoyu in Chinese and Senkaku in Japanese. Japan also claims ownership.
The extension of the air defense identification zone includes an expectation by the Chinese government that all aircraft declare a flight plan and frequency and provide other information before entering.
The U.S. administration denounced the decision and declared that the U.S. will continue to conduct flight operations in and around that area.
"We will not in any way change how we conduct our operations," Pentagon spokesperson Col. Steve Warren said, adding that the U.S. maintains that the newly expanded ADIZ is in international waters.
Monday evening ET, two B-52 bombers took off from Anderson Air Force Base in Guam as part of an ongoing training exercise called Coral Lightning Global Power Training Sortie. The bombers were in the ADIZ for less than one hour, Warren said.
This was a "long-planned training exercise," and the U.S. did not inform the Chinese of their flight plan, Warren said.
The flights occurred without incident, Warren said, adding that there was no reaction, no Chinese aircraft were spotted in the air, and the Chinese did not contact the U.S. military about the flight.
"Nobody is talking about the possibility of armed conflict coming out of this [ADIZ decision]," Warren said.

War Between China And Japan?

Tensions heightened after Beijing announces rules for “East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone” that includes territory claimed by both nations

The announcement came on a weekend, just as the world’s attention was diverted by tense negotiations towards an Iranian nuclear deal. On Saturday, Nov. 23, Beijing announced “aircraft identification rules” for an “East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone” that includes the skies over a scattering of rocks that China calls the Diaoyu.

Japan, which currently administers the outcroppings and uses the name Senkaku to refer to the contested territory, has cried foul. On Sunday, Japan’s Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said that Tokyo refused to recognize Beijing’s division of the heavens. “It was a one-sided action and cannot be allowed,” Kishida said, warning that Beijing’s move was “expected to trigger unpredictable events.”

Saudi Arabia Teams With Israel To Attack Iran

Excerpted from Times Of Israel: Israel is working on coordinating plans for a possible military strike with Saudi Arabia, with Riyadh prepared to provide tactical support to Jerusalem, a British newspaper reported early Sunday.
The two countries have both united in worry that the West may come to terms with Iran, easing sanctions and allowing the Islamic Republic to continue its nuclear program.
According to the Sunday Times, Riyadh has agreed to let Israel use its airspace in a military strike on Iran and cooperate over the use of rescue helicopters, tanker planes and drones.
“The Saudis are furious and are willing to give Israel all the help it needs,” an unnamed diplomatic source told the paper.
The report comes as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the midst of a blitz to lobby against a deal and cobble together an international alliance opposed to an agreement that allows Iran to continue enriching uranium.
On Sunday, Israel will welcome French president Francois Hollande, who a week earlier put the kibosh on a deal between six world powers and Iran that would ease sanctions in return for initial steps toward curbing enrichment.
Netanyahu on Friday urged France to remain firm in its pressure on Iran ahead of a new round of talks on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program in Geneva, kicking off Wednesday.
After meeting Hollande, Netanyahu will head to Moscow on Wednesday to meet with President Vladimir Putin and lobby against the deal.

President Putin ends Russia and NATO ABM cooperation

rickrozoff.wordpress.com
By John Robles for Voice of Russia Moscow (Voice of Russia) Nov 06, 2013 In another powerful and significant move for peace, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has cancelled a presidential order which in 2011, had set up an interdepartmental working group under the authority of the Russian Presidential Administration designed to develop ways to establish cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the sphere of 'missile defense'.
Many experts and NATO watchers familiar with the decree and the attempts by the Russian Federation to develop an equal partnership relationship with NATO on the basis of mutual respect and transparency may now breathe a collective sigh of relief that President Putin has finally run out of patience with the alliance.
The wisdom of the president can not be questioned after what many have been saying for years and dozens of failed attempts to develop a partnership with the alliance. These "failures" have been many fold and compounded by NATO own actions and have included NATO insistence on Like the proverbial Russian bear, President Putin has been slow to be provoked into action but once that action has been decided it is resolute.
Empty rhetoric It was almost obvious from the outset that despite all of its rhetoric to the contrary, rhetoric that has proven time and time again to be as empty as the minds of those espousing it, that NATO had no intention of allowing the Russian Federation into its "fold" as an equal partner.
This total inability by NATO to adjust and modernize its strategic mission taking into account the contemporary realities of Russia as a leading European power interested in peace, rule of law and mutually beneficial cooperation, may be due to its inherent nature of being an organization that was designed, and whose only purpose was, to contain the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and/or that NATO has become a wholly owned global proxy for the attempted advancement of short-sighted, myopic US geopolitical military domination and American hegemony by force.

Taiwan Says China Could Defeat U.S. Allies, Launch Invasion by 2020

A report by the Taiwanese Ministry of National Defense released this week predicts that China will have developed a “wholly sufficient” military presence near the island to invade by 2020. As the United States is obligated by treaty to defend Taiwan in the event of an invasion, this report also predicts China will be able to defeat American forces protecting the island.

According to Reuters, this is the first time the Taiwanese defense ministry has given such a precise deadline for a potential successful invasion. "Over the long-term, it will be wholly sufficient to engage in a war over Taiwan by 2020," the report argues, citing several developments the Chinese military has been endeavoring to fund recently, particularly "long-range precision strike weaponry" capabilities. That calculation takes into account not only the Taiwanese military but any intervening power. It has been years since Taiwan argued that it could unilaterally defeat an invading Chinese army, but concerns of Western intervention have largely kept that threat of violence subdued in past decades.
China's government has officially responded that they have yet to see the full report, but are optimistic about the "momentum of peaceful development" between the two parties, calling talks "beneficial to both sides."
The report comes at a pivotal time in relations between Taiwan and China. Taiwan asserts its sovereignty as the Republic of China, while China views the island as a province falsely asserting said sovereignty and has encouraged talks while not discounting the possibility of using force. The summer was wrought with tension as activists clashed in Taiwan over a potential trade agreement with mainland China that could make the island more economically dependent on what many perceive to be a military threat. 
While the potential for a trade agreement circulated, Taiwan sided with the United States during talks regarding multilateral trade in the South China Sea, calling for freer navigation for trade vessels.
Recently, Chinese President Xi Jinping called for talks between the two governments, arguing that the division "should be resolved step-by-step" in a negotiating process. Calls on the part of Taiwan for military reinforcements continued nonetheless, however. Deputy Defense Minister Yen Teh-fa, on a visit to the United States earlier this month, called for the United States to send further aid to their defense, describing China as a continued "grave threat." 
The words came as something of a surprise to those following the rise of Taiwanese leader Ma Ying-jeou, who is perceived to be more China-friendly than his predecessors.

"Hablame"

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
