BISHKEK (Reuters) - Police clashed with at least 2,000 opposition protesters, some of whom had tried to storm a government building in the center of Kyrgyzstan's capital on Wednesday.

The protesters were demanding that the government nationalises the country's flagship gold venture with Canada.

Policemen fired tear gas and stun grenades to oust the crowd from the central Ala Too square.

In fact, the new president of Kyrgyzstan, Mr Almazbek Sharshenovich Atambayev, started out in the 1980s as a young Communist Party activist in the then Soviet Republic.

Now take a wider look at who Kyrgyzstan’s Presidents have been since the “collapse” of the USSR, and tell me if you see anything odd about this nation that is 80% Muslim and 17% Russian Orthodox:

Askar Akayevich Akayev – October 27, 1990 – March 24, 2005, Communist.

Ishenbai Duyshonbiyevich Kadyrbekov – March 24, 2005 – March 25, 2005 (Interim), Communist.

Kurmanbek Saliyevich Bakiyev – March 25, 2005 – April 15, 2010, Communist.

Roza Isakovna Otunbayeva – April 7, 2010 – December 1, 2011 Communist.

Almazbek Sharshenovich Atambayev – December 1, 2011 – Present, Communist.

The same applies for Russia. The Russian “electorate” are inexplicably only electing for President and Prime Minister Soviet-era Communist Party members! Beginning to get the picture?

What this means is that the “collapse” of the USSR in late 1991 was a strategic ruse, as predicted by KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn (Golitsyn actually correctly predicted that East Bloc nations/USSR would first “liberalize” before they “collapsed”) , the only Soviet-era defector to still be under protective custody in the West, proving (1) the collapses of the USSR/East Bloc were strategic ruses; and (2) that all other Soviet-era defectors who followed Golitsyn were still loyal to their respective Communist intelligence agencies, since all of them provided incorrect intelligence on the future of the USSR/East Bloc.

Unless you’ve read Golitsyn’s 1984 book, “New Lies for Old” (available at Internet Archive), and become familiar with the Communists’ “Long-Range Policy” (which all Communist nations signed onto in 1960 as their “new” and more subtle strategy to neutralize the West), you are ignorant of all matters concerning foreign policy.
