The “Bear” is just lying in wait—in a state of hibernation. KGB Putin longs for the days of the old communist Soviet Union. He remarked its so-called ‘collapse’ was the “worst geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century”. He recently praised Cold War spies and moles. He is a power hungry, egotistical freak, and has ordered hits on many of his political opponents, at home and elsewhere.
Communism sucked dry its terrestrial host in Eastern Europe and bounced to the fertile (and clueless) West. Talk about a NEP (New Economic Policy).
It never goes away because it promises to reward the most vile and base of human behaviors, raw power for the sake of power, carried aloft by ego. Obama in a nutshell.
BTW, am I the only one who finds something strangely “off” about Bezmenov? I think I have seen every video on the net. Can’t quite put my finger on it. While he appears to have been truthful, intuition nags at me, saying that there was something rather calculated about his demeanor. Almost as if his matter-of-fact description of, say, Ted Kennedy as a “useful idiot” was used to gain the trust of his audience.
I’ve had enough dealings with devious, calculating personalities that those things jumped out at me. Could be nothing.
That he just sort of vanished doesn’t help. Maybe he slinked off to the Philipines.
Bear in hibernation is a great analogy.
