Democracy and the Roots of Terrorism. Nikolay Starikov’s Talk in Bratislava, Slovakia. Встреча с общественностью Братиславы
Jan. 9, 2014. Democracy and the roots of terrorism.
A very informative new talk by Nikolay Starikov in Bratislava, Slovakia. (In Russian).
Unfortunately, I only have this supremely interesting talk in Russian. If I find an English version, I’ll post it as well, as this is one of the most lucid, well thought out, and profound lectures on the subject of state sponsored terrorism and geopolitics I’ve ever seen.
I’ll mention one point from the lecture: a couple of Russian rocket scientists, who were passing through town and who worked on a classified project, had died as a result of the recent double terrorist act in Volgograd, Russia. This fact, as far as I know, was never mentioned in the Western press and avoided in the Russian press. These deaths led the author to believe that the so called “random” terrorist acts in Volgograd weren’t that random. The target of the first one at the train station were the scientists, and the second one, in a trolleybus, was done to make the whole thing seem random, and to obscure the fact that the targets were he aforementioned Russian scientists. Who benefits from the deaths of these scientists? This is the question to ask.
