  • What happened in Uzbekistan?

    What happened in Uzbekistan? The government and opposition protesters are sharply at odds in Uzbekistan days after the eastern city of Andijan exploded into violence. A May 15 AP report claimed some 500 bodies had been laid out in a school in Andijan for identification by relatives, "corroborating witness accounts of hundreds killed" when soldiers opened fire on street protests. Medical authorities also reported some 2,000 wounded in local hospitals. However, a May 18 account on Russia's MosNews.com quotes Uzbek officials denying this very death toll. “Not a single civilian was killed by government forces there,” Prosecutor General Rashid Kadyrov...

    Against a backdrop of saber-rattling statements made by leaders of State Duma factions, President Vladimir Putin delivered a reconciliatory speech Thursday in the Crimean coastal town of Yalta, arguing against excessive confrontation with the West. "We must calmly and effectively build up our country with dignity, not fence it off from the outside world," Putin was cited by Reuters as saying. "We need to consolidate and mobilize: not for war or any kind of confrontation, [but] for hard work in the name of Russia." Putin stopped short from announcing any of the decisions that were widely expected by pundits and...
  • Yalta summit divides Europe, again

    EurActiv ^ | 02 May 2012
    A summit of the presidents of Central European countries due in Yalta, Ukraine, on 11-12 May, will be attended by some EU leaders and boycotted by others, EurActiv has learned. Ironically, Yalta is a symbol of the division of Europe during the Cold War, following the February 1945 meeting there between Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. At least four EU countries will boycott the Black Sea resort meeting. German media reported on 26 April that the country's new President Joachim Gauck canceled a trip to Ukraine this month amid worries about the health of imprisoned opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko. Then Czech...

    In February 1945, three world leaders -- FDR, Stalin and Churchill -- gathered in Yalta, in Crimea, to discuss the fate of post-war Europe. At that conference, FDR signed away half of Germany, all of Poland, enslavement of the German population to the Soviet Union. While the conference suggested that liberated countries would be granted free elections, no enforcement mechanism was put in place, so the Soviets effectively annexed every piece of land they occupied. FDR insisted he had not been duped. "Poor Neville Chamberlain believed he could trust Hitler," FDR said days after the conference. "He was wrong. But...

    To think that Boris and Natasha lived right here in South Dakota, and we didn't even know it! Recently, Walter Kendall Myers and Gwendolyn Steingraber-Trebilcock-Myers - a couple who once lived in Aberdeen - were arrested for spying. The news rocked the nation. Well, actually, the nation immediately forgot the story. Still, South Dakota hasn't forgotten. It's not every day suspected spies are found traipsing through your own neighborhood. The espionage likely started after they left Aberdeen, but you still wonder if that abandoned shopping cart you saw in aisle 8 of Kessler's might have contained a coded message. The...

One of the pressing issues discussed at this year's conference was whether the U.S. is serious about bartering away plans for missile defense sites in Poland and the Czech Republic in exchange for...

    Germans demand compensation from Poland over war losses A German group has filed claims against Poland with a European court over property lost in the aftermath of World War II, a member said today. The Prussian Claims Society, which represents some Germans who were expelled from Poland after the war ended, filed the complaint with the European Court of Human Rights, the society’s deputy leader Gerwald Stanko said. “Twenty-two individual complaints have gone to the European Court of Human Rights,” Stanko said. He said the aim was to secure either compensation or the return of property. The Prussian Claims Society...

I must say, it was a compelling argument. I found Kerry to be one of the most detestable human beings ever to walk planet Earth. He was a liar, he...

    MAASTRICHT, The Netherlands (Reuters) -- Grandsons of the three World War II allied leaders who attended the 1945 Yalta conference met for the first time on Saturday and defended the talks which some have blamed for triggering the Cold War. With the German army in retreat and Hitler's vision of a Nazi-controlled continent in tatters, Josef Stalin, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill met at the Black Sea resort to decide how to occupy Germany and reorganise Europe into spheres of influence.

    Questions remain over Yalta's legacy By Gavin Esler Presenter, Six Places That Changed The World When did World War II end? The question is deceptively simple. If you are British, American, German, Japanese, French or Italian, then you undoubtedly would answer, without hesitation, in 1945. But if you happen to be Estonian, Latvian or Lithuanian, then you would answer as Mart Laar, twice a prime minister of Estonia does: "It ended only when the last Russian soldier left my country." That puts the end of World War II as 1994. In a series of programmes based on places that have...

    London; Prague; Budapest – Central and Eastern Europe is a good vantage point from which to judge President Bush's recent visit to Moscow for the anniversary of VE Day — and the resulting debate over Yalta and the value of his democracy project. After all, Prague and Warsaw were the flashpoints that prepared and ignited World War II. Britain and France declared war on Germany in September 1939 because the German army had crossed the Polish borders the Allies had guaranteed six months earlier (in response to Hitler's seizure of the rump of Czechoslovakia). Poland was one of the four...

    PI grew up in an ethnic neighborhood in which most of our neighbors were from Eastern Europe. The couple next door was from Slovakia. They did not want to be identified with Czechoslovakia even 30 years after the forced merger of those two countries, which today again are separate countries. The folks up the street were from Ukraine. It was from them that I learned not to say THE Ukraine. Their relatives were killed by Stalin. A Lithuanian family also lived in our neighborhood. In 1956 a family from Hungary moved into our neighborhood after having fled for their lives...

    I lived through the reign of Democrat icon Franklin Delano Roosevelt. His reign lasted from 1932 to 1994 when Republicans finally succeeded in wresting Congress from FDR's legacy. A legacy that worked for a uneducated, uninformed cabal of voters who blamed a Republican president for a flameout of the business cycle in 1929 as if no Democrats were involved in that debacle. History will not be kind to FDR. His Democrat apologists in the MSM will be dead, and the bare facts will remain. FDR's presidency was an economic disaster. He got credit for pulling the country out of a...

    Bush Buries The Shame Of Yalta May 18, 2005 by Phyllis Schlafly Thank you, President George W. Bush, for correcting history and making a long overdue apology for one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's tragic mistakes. Speaking in Latvia on May 7, Bush repudiated "the agreement at Yalta" by which powerful governments negotiated away the freedom of small nations. Bush accurately blamed Yalta for "the captivity of millions in Central and Eastern Europe" and said it "will be remembered as one of the greatest wrongs of history." This admission has been 50 years coming, and Bush's words assure that "the...

    President Bush continues the practice of the big lie as prescribed by Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda ace. If you tell a big enough lie often enough, people will believe you. Bush does not apologize even when he's caught in a falsehood. All right, there were no "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq. But it was not his fault that he believed all the intelligence agencies of the world, was it? The parents of the young men and women killed and wounded in Iraq as well as the relatives of all the Iraqis blown up since the American arrival might have...

    White House Letter: In row over Yalta, Bush pokes at Baltic politics. WASHINGTON When President George W. Bush declared on May 7 in Latvia that the 1945 Yalta agreement had led to "one of the greatest wrongs of history," he reignited an ideological debate from the era of Joseph McCarthy. For more than a week now, the left and the right have been arguing over the president's words and re-arguing the deal made by Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill in an old czarist resort near the Crimean city of Yalta in the closing days of World War II. Bush has criticized...
