    The Slight of Slights: US Neocons Try to Rewrite History of WWII

    American neocons are making attempts to rewrite the history of WWII, while supporting the neo-Nazi regime in Kiev, notes a US investigative journalist.

    Even one-time Cold Warrior Richard Nixon "would have never tolerated the current neo-conservative penchant to deny Russia's major role in World War II’s – known in Russia as the Great Patriotic War – victory of the Allies over Nazi Germany," underscored Wayne Madsen, an American author and investigative journalist, slamming the US leadership and its "vassal" European governments who refused to participate in the annual May 9 Victory Day ceremony held in Moscow.

    The author revealed that among those beating the sanctions war drums and attempting to lessen the importance of the Soviet Union’s role in WWII are sons and daughters of fascist and Nazi Eastern European émigrés who entered the US via the CIA's "Operation Paperclip," in order to escape trials in their homelands.

    "Out of this constellation" emerged the Ukrainian-American Zionist Lev Dobriansky and his daughter Paula, former George W. Bush State Department official. Another one-time supporter of Nazis in Hungary was Gyorgy Schwartz, who later took the name of "George Soros." Their ideological offspring can today be found in many government offices across eastern and central Europe, the investigative journalist noted.

    Indeed, while urging their counterparts to boycott Moscow's May 9 event, some European leaders are hosting Nazi commemorations in their own countries. For instance, Lithuania's President Dalia Grybauskaite (a graduate of the Georgetown University Foreign Service School in Washington) is doing nothing to prevent annual events held at the gravesite of Juozas Ambrazevicius Brazaitis, a Lithuanian Nazi leader and concentration camp builder.

    Latvian President Andris Berzins is turning a blind eye to the annual Waffen SS veterans' parade in Riga. Estonia's President Toomas Hendrik Ilves (a former head of the Estonian desk for the CIA-financed Radio Free Europe) supported the decision of the Estonian government to remove a Soviet victory statue from the capital to the city's outskirts, Wayne Madsen underscored.

    While NATO puppets in eastern and central Europe are involved in a propaganda war against Russia and its May 9 Victory Day event, three US ex-ambassadors to Ukraine – Steven Pifer, John Herbst, and William Taylor – have demanded that the leaders of the UK, Germany and France should participate in a WWII Victory in Europe ceremony in Kiev, "a city where neo-Nazis and skinhead mercenaries from around Europe enjoy political and military power," the author stressed.

    That means the Western leaders would find themselves in an embarrassing situation "standing alongside neo-Nazis and paleo-Nazis of every stripe, including supporters of Adolf Hitler and the Ukrainian Nazi leader and German SS enabler, Stepan Bandera," Wayne Madsen remarked sarcastically. However, it seems that the three former US ambassadors do not care. They have long been working with anti-Russia right-wing groups in Ukraine.

    Despite the propaganda war, many European leaders have accepted Moscow's invitation to take part in the May 9 Victory Day ceremony. Among them are Czech President Milos Zeman, Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, as well as leaders of Iceland, Norway, the Netherlands, Slovakia, and Hungary. Leaders of China, India, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Serbian Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Egypt and South Africa have pledged to attend the Victory Day Parade.

    "In what can only be considered a diplomatic slap at the Kiev regime and its Western supporters, the leaders of the eastern Ukrainian people's republics of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine will be in the same Red Square," emphasized the author, adding that it would de-facto mean international recognition of their status.

    The US' action aimed at boycotting WWII Victory Day in Moscow is obviously "immature," the author noted: "The action is very reminiscent of the US-led and diplomatically-immature boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, a move deemed to have done more long-term harm to the Olympic movement than short-term damage to the USSR."
