More deceitful system than Russia, was not in the history of mankind "Georgy Mirsky, a historian, Honored Scientist of Russia. + - Posted Jazzuit, March 18, 2014 at 05.31 at the ukraine.
I was thirteen years old when Stalin started the war with Finland. Red Army crossed the border, and the next day the Soviet people heard on the radio: "In the city Terjoki insurgent workers and soldiers formed the Provisional People's Government of the Finnish Democratic Republic." The father said: "You see, no one country can not fight with us, immediately will be a revolution."
I'm not lazy, took the card, looked at it and said, "Dad, because Terjoki right next to the border. It seems that our troops entered it on the first day. I do not understand - what the government and the people's revolt? "And then it turned out that I was absolutely right: a boy in my class elder brother was among the troops of the NKVD and a few months later secretly told him that he was among those who follow in went down in the Red Army infantry Terjoki it imported there comrade Otto Kuusinen, head of the Finnish Communist Party. And then everything became widely known. That's when I almost still a child, but, apparently, with the beginnings of understanding of politics, first thought: "How can our government lie?"
And after a little over two years after Hitler's attack when I have fifteen teenager worked as an orderly in the evacuation hospital Razguliay street, close to metro "Bauman," I had a long conversation with the wounded, who were brought out of Rzhev (none remained at the forefront of more than five days, either), and what they talked about how there is a war, so different - especially if it was a loss-of official propaganda that trust in government has completely disappeared. For many decades later, I learned that the guys from 1921, 1922 and 1923 birth mobilized and sent to the front in the first year of the war, returned alive and healthy - t r o e s t of every man and. (Incidentally, our historians and generals still lie as sivye gelding, downplaying much - for what, I ask, why? - Our loss.)
And twenty years later, had the Caribbean crisis, and I'm in the hottest days actually worked as an assistant director of the institute, Anushevana Agafonovich Arzumanyan, and he was brother-Mikoyan, Khrushchev and Mikoyan instructed to engage Cuba. So I was in the middle of the action and on different replicas Director guessed that our missiles in Cuba did. But with what an incredible outrage almost cried normally placid Minister Gromyko, exposing "vile lie" Americans over the alleged imported Soviet missiles in Cuba!
How to freak out our indignation Ambassador Dobrynin in Washington, when he was asked about the rockets, but as literally fought hysterically known television commentators to the entire country, plow, "Yes how can a single person in the world who knows the peace policy of the Soviet government, believe we brought missiles into Cuba? "only when President Kennedy showed the world of aerial photography, which is clearly, clearly visible raketushki our - my mother - I had to back out, and I remember the look on the face Arzumanyan, when he told me that his brother-in-high-flies to Cuba to sell on Fidel Castro did not mind humiliating removal of our missiles back. And then, at least someone apologized, admitted? Nothing of the sort.
A few years later our tanks rolled into Prague, and I remember as a district party committees throughout Moscow collected lecturers, propagandists and agitators to give them a formal setting: our troops on the top and side h and with a (!) Ahead of entering NATO troops in Czechoslovakia. By the way, then the same will be talking about Afghanistan: a few months ago, a taxi driver, a veteran - "Afghan", said to me: "And yet no wonder we went in there, because even a few days - and in Afghanistan would be Americans."
And I remember the story of the downed a South Korean airliner that killed hundreds of people. The official version says that the plane was just gone to sea, all travel abroad was strictly ordered only this to say. A Chernobyl when ordinary Soviet people believe the official line ("just an accident") wrote in "Pravda" letters of protest. Against what? Against being brought to a nuclear power plant disaster? No, that's you! Unconscionable slander against Western media that breshut something about radioactivity, the threat of people's lives. And remember the picture in the paper: a dog, wagging its tail, and the text: "This is one of the houses of Chernobyl. Hosts on the time left, and the dog is guarding the house. "
Exactly 65 years I have lived in the kingdom of lies. Most also had to lie - and how ... But lucky - I was an orientalist, could be avoided to the extent possible subjects requiring disclosures West. And now, when students ask: "Is the Soviet system was the most brutal and bloody?" - I say, "No, and was Genghis Khan and Tamerlane, and Hitler. But here's a false system than ours, was not in the history of mankind. "
Why do I remember this? I do not know. Maybe because somewhere flashed some information about some unidentified military?

Them's fightin' words, Georgy.
I'll put Pres--ent Soetoro up against Putin any day of the week.
I'll even spot you three lies.
Any communist system is going to be based on big lies. There’s no other way to keep the underlying mythos going. It would collapse under the disgust of the people otherwise.
Right now the deceit of Barack is open and depends on people who want to be fooled.
AMERICA: more deceitful?
Maybe America is worse, because not only the government is trying to fool us, the people are trying to fool themselves.
Russia expands and grows as the US becomes Venezuela
O and Putin are BOTH dedicated communists....that says all any one needs to know
A universal truth that makes lies possible and ushers tyrants to power. People want to believe what they want to believe. Ein Volk! Ein Reich! Ein Obama?
What are you hearing about the south, I’ve been traveling all day, and now my twitter feed is going bananas, talking about massive UK casualties, in two failed breakout attempts, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening.
