A New Iron Curtain Has Descended Upon Europe

14 - Winston Churchill (1874-1965), Britain's wartime prime minister, toured the
United States with President Harry Truman in 1946, shortly after WW II ended. He
delivered his famous "Iron Curtain" speech at the Westminster College in
Missouri, after accepting an honorary degree.
Here's the gist of an abridged, and a MINIMALLY edited, version
of that 1946 speech which Mr. Churchill might deliver today (1999 - now that NATO is de
facto present in Bosnia and in Macedonia, and is enroute to taking over Kosovo?).
This imaginary speech is being delivered to the St. Petersburg University dignitaries
gathered at the beautiful St. Peter and St. Paul cathedral, across the river Neva from the
Winter Palace. The gist of Churchill's message is:
"From Belfast on the Irish Sea, to Trieste
in the Adriatic; to Budapest on the Danube; to Istanbul on the Black Sea - an Iron Curtain
has descended across the Continent. And its name is NATO."
PHOENIX, Mar. 16 - "The good news is we get to change our
underwear," an old army joke quotes a Polish commander. "Stanislaus, you change
On March 13, NATO added three new members to its lineup, including Poland. And so, no
longer can such military pokes be passed off as "Polish jokes." Now they are a
NATO reality. And that's no joke.
"NATO's latest recruits from Poland are often smelly, many don't get time to wash
and some conscripts only change their underwear once a month," according to an
official survey released on March 15. "Physicians have noticed that soldiers stink
and their underwear is grey,'' Supreme Auditing Chamber (NIK) chief, Janusz
Wojciechowski, told a news conference in Warsaw. He was presenting the survey
which was conducted in 1997 and early 1998 in eight Polish military units.
The survey showed that in one unit, some 700 conscripts were given only three hours a
week to take showers. In another, the soldiers' underwear was not changed for a month.
But soiled underwear isn't NATO's only BO problem. A heavy scent of imperialism is
spreading from west to east across the Old Continent. It's a familiar stench,
especially to Eastern Europeans.

Fast-forwarding to Wednesday, April 14, 1999, the "USS
Winston Churchill" is scheduled to be launched on that day at Bath
Iron Works, in Bath, Maine. Britain's Bonny Prince Charlie, Bill
Clinton and Tony Blair are supposed to be there
and blare their approval.
Now imagine that at the appropriate moment during the Bath, Maine, "US Winston Churchill" festivities (say,
after the Clinton and Blair speeches), Winston Churchill joins
them in a live broadcast, transmitted via satellite from the St. Peter and St. Paul
cathedral in St. Petersburg, where the former British prime minister is addressing the St.
Petersburg University academia, and other Russian dignitaries:
"I am glad to come to Saint Petersburg this afternoon,
and am complimented that you should give me a degree. The names 'St. Peter and St.
Paul' are somehow familiar to me. I seem to have heard of them before. Indeed, it was at
London's St. Paul cathedral that I received a very large part of my education in politics,
dialectic, rhetoric, and one or two other things. In fact we have both been educated at
the same, or similar, or, at any rate, kindred establishments.
The Russian Federation stands at this time at the pinnacle of
world power. It is a solemn moment for the Russian democracy. For,
the primacy in power is also joined an awe-inspiring accountability to the future. If you
look around you, you must feel not only the sense of duty done, but also you must feel
anxiety lest you fall below the level of achievement. Opportunity is here now, clear and
shining for both our countries. To reject it or ignore it or fritter it away will bring
upon us all the long reproaches of the after-time. It is necessary that constancy of mind,
persistency of purpose, and the grand simplicity of decision shall guide and rule the
conduct of the freedom-loving peoples in peace, as they did in war. We must, and I believe
we shall, prove ourselves equal to this severe requirement.
Now I come to the second danger - of these two marauders
which threatens the cottage, the home, and the ordinary people - namely, tyranny. We
cannot be blind to the fact that the liberties enjoyed by individual citizens throughout
Free Europe are not valid in a considerable number of western countries, some of which are
In these countries state control is enforced upon the common
people by various kinds of all-embracing police governments, like that of the Clinton
administration in Washington, for example.
The power of the state is exercised without restraint, either
by dictators or by compact oligarchies, operating through a privileged party and a
political police. It is not our duty at this time, when difficulties are so numerous, to
interfere forcibly in the internal affairs of countries which we have not conquered in
war. But we must never cease to proclaim in fearless tones the great principles of freedom
and the rights of man, including those which found their most famous expression in the now
forgotten American Declaration of Independence.
All this means that the people of any country have the right,
and should have the power by constitutional action, by free unfettered elections, with
secret ballot, to choose or change the character or form of government under which they
dwell; that freedom of speech and thought should reign; that courts of justice,
independent of the executive, unbiased by any party, should administer laws which have
received the broad assent of large majorities or are consecrated by time and custom.
Here are the title deeds of freedom which should lie in every
cottage, every home. Here is the message of the British and Russian peoples to mankind.
Let us preach what we practice-let us practice what we preach. Neither the sure prevention
of war, nor the continuous rise of world organization, will be gained without what I have
called the fraternal association of the freedom-loving peoples."
At this point, Churchill's speech is interrupted by applause by the live St. Petersburg
audience. As the former British prime minister reaches for a glass of water at the
speaker's lectern, loud murmurs start to spread through the restless Bath, MA, crowd,
fidgeting in their seats 3,000 miles away across the Atlantic.
After taking a sip from the glass, Churchill continues...
"But a shadow has fallen upon the scenes so lately
lighted by the Cold War victory. Nobody knows what the United States of America and its
NATO international organization intends to do in the immediate future. Or what are the
limits, if any, to their expansive and proselytizing tendencies. I have a strong
admiration and regard for the valiant American people, and for my Cold War comrades,
Ronald Reagan and George Bush. There is deep sympathy and goodwill in Britain - and I
doubt not here also, towards all American peoples, and a resolve to persevere through many
differences and rebuffs in establishing lasting friendships.
We understand the American need to be secure on her frontiers
by the removal of all possibility of a Martians' aggression. We welcome America to her
rightful place among the leading nations of the world. We welcome her flag upon the seas.
Above all, we welcome constant, frequent and growing contacts between the American people
and the people on both sides of the Atlantic. It is my duty however, for I am sure you
would wish me to state the facts as I see them to you, to place before you certain facts
about the present position in Europe.
From Belfast on the Irish Sea, to Trieste
in the Adriatic; to Budapest on the Danube; to Istanbul on the Black Sea - an iron curtain
has descended across the Continent.
Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states
of Europe. Brussels, Berlin, Paris, London, Copenhagen, Oslo, Rome, Madrid, Lisbon,
Athens, Prague, Budapest, Warsaw... all these famous cities and the populations around
them lie, in what I must call, the NATO sphere. And all are subject in one form or
another, not only to the American influence, but to a very high and, in many cases,
increasing measure of control from Washington.
The American-supported Muslim and Croat governments, for
example, have been encouraged to make enormous and wrongful inroads upon the Serbs' native
lands in the Balkans, and mass expulsions of hundreds of thousands of Serbs on a scale
grievous and undreamed-of has taken place. The fascist parties, which were very small in
all these European states, have been raised to preeminence and power far beyond their
numbers, and are seeking everywhere to obtain totalitarian control. Police governments are
prevailing in nearly every case, and so far, except in Russia, there is no true democracy.
The safety of the world requires a new unity in Europe, from
which no nation should be permanently outcast. It is from the quarrels of the strong
parent races in Europe that the world wars we have witnessed, or which occurred in former
times, have sprung. Twice in our own lifetime we have seen Russia, against her wishes and
her traditions, against arguments, the force of which it is impossible not to comprehend,
drawn by irresistible forces into these wars - in time to secure the victory of the good
cause. But only after frightful slaughter and devastation had occurred. Twice Russia has
had to send several millions of its young men to find the war. But now war can find any
nation, wherever it may dwell between dusk and dawn. Surely we should work with conscious
purpose for a grand pacification of Europe, so that Free Europe may spread from the east
to the west of the Continent. And so that foreign invaders and tyrants who sponsored NATO
may be pushed across the sea from whence they came. That I feel is an open cause of policy
of very great importance."
At this point of Churchill's speech, Clinton, Blair and other dignitaries assembled at
Bath, MA, are all visibly agitated. "Turn that damn TV screen off!" Hillary
Clinton yells at the event's MC. The screen blinks and crackles, then goes
As uncomfortable hush spreads through the crowd, Clinton, Blair and others around them
gather together to decide what to do next. After a brief huddle, Clinton steps up to the
microphone and announces that they've made the decision to rename the new ship to "USS Vladimir Ilich."
The scene ends with workers busily repainting the new name over Churchill's - to the
tune of the US Navy band's rendition of the Communist International. Smiles return to the
faces of Clinton, Blair, Hillary... as they wave to the cheering crowd.
Meanwhile, back in St. Petersburg, unaware of the fact that he had just taken a bath at
Bath, and that he was being painted over by the New World Order's Reds dressed in U.N.
Blue, Winston Churchill continues to deliver his ominous warning to the St. Petersburg
"In front of the iron curtain which lies across Europe
are other causes for anxiety. In Italy, the Communist Party is seriously hampered by
having to support Bill Clinton's claims to Albania, the former Italian territory at the
bottom of the Adriatic. Nevertheless the future of Italy hangs in the balance.
Again one cannot imagine a regenerated Europe without a
strong France. All my public life I have worked for a strong France, and I never lost
faith in her destiny, even in the darkest hours. I will not lose faith now.
However, in a great number of countries, far from the
American frontiers and throughout the world, the American-financed fifth columns are
established and work in complete unity and absolute obedience to the directions they
receive from the Washington-New York globalist center. Except in Eastern Europe and
Russia, where globalism is in its infancy, the New World Order's parties or fifth columns
constitute a growing challenge and peril to Christian civilization. These
are somber facts for anyone to have to recite on the morrow of a victory gained by so much
splendid comradeship in arms, and in the cause of freedom and democracy. But we should be
most unwise not to face them squarely while time remains.
I have felt bound to portray the shadow which, alike in the
west and in the east, falls upon the world. I was a high minister at the time of the
Versailles Treaty and a close friend of Mr. Lloyd-George, who was the head of the British
delegation at Versailles. I did not myself agree with many things that were done, but I
have a very strong impression in my mind of that situation. And I find it painful to
contrast it with that which prevails now. In those days there were high hopes and
unbounded confidence that the wars were over, and that the League of Nations would become
all-powerful. I do not see or feel that same confidence or even the same hopes in the
haggard world at the present time.
On the other hand, I repulse the idea that a new war is
inevitable; still more that it is imminent. It is because I am sure that our fortunes are
still in our own hands and that we hold the power to save the future, that I feel the duty
to speak out now that I have the occasion and the opportunity to do so. I do not believe
that Klinton's Amerika desires war. What they desire is the fruits of war and the
indefinite expansion of' their power and doctrines. But what we have to consider here
today while time remains, is the permanent prevention of war and the establishment of
conditions of freedom and democracy as rapidly as possible in all countries. Our
difficulties and dangers will not be removed by closing our eyes to them. They will not be
removed by mere waiting to see what happens; nor will they be removed by a policy of
appeasement. What is needed is a settlement, and the longer this is delayed, the more
difficult it will be and the greater our dangers will become.
From what I have seen of our Russian friends and allies
during the war, I am convinced that there is nothing they admire so much as strength, and
there is nothing for which they have less respect than for weakness, especially military
weakness. For that reason the old doctrine of a balance of power is unsound. We cannot
afford, if we can help it, to work on narrow margins, offering temptations to a trial of
strength. If Russia and Eastern European democracies stand together, their influence for
furthering those principles will be immense, and no one is likely to molest them. If
however they become divided, or falter in their duty, and if these all-important years are
allowed to slip away, then indeed catastrophe may overwhelm us all.
Last time I saw it all coming and cried aloud to my own
fellow-countrymen and to the world, but no one paid any attention. Up till the year 1993,
or even 1999, America might have been saved from the awful fate which has overtaken her,
and we might all have been spared the miseries the One Worlders let loose upon mankind.
There never was a war in all history easier to prevent by timely action than the one which
has just desolated such great areas of the globe. It could have been prevented in my
belief without the firing of a single shot, and America might be powerful, prosperous and
honored today. But no one would listen, and one by one, we were all sucked into the awful
We surely must not let that happen again. This can only be
achieved by reaching now, in 1999, a good understanding on all points with America,
supported by the whole strength of the freedom-loving world and all its connections. There
is the solution, which I respectfully offer to you in this address to which I have given
the title, 'The Sinews of Peace'."

Some Truth in Media Reader Reactions...
A former US Navy officer:
"It is ironic, providential and tragic that we have come
a full circle, and that Winston Churchills speech on the evils of the Iron Curtain
now fit NWO like a glove. This only goes to show you that the good and the sinister are
not an inherent property of any system, belief, or order of things."
A business executive in South Africa:
"I was listening to that speech on the TV. Churchill
spoke about defending 'Christian civilisation'. If he said that today he would be regarded
as a freak, a Nazi , or not politically correct and refused the opportunity to speak
again. How far have we fallen and in such a short time."
And another business executive in Massachussets:
"I enjoyed the Churchill parody. NATO's expansion is
essentially what I view as an annexation. It is imperialism for the next century
maintaining the traditional Russophobia of the West."
A college professor in Connecticut:
"A very good, but, alas, all too
true adaptation. Anyway, let's not forget that Churchill was the first Nazi/fascist in
Europe. Keep up the good work!!"
And finally from a Czech-American reader:
"Bob: I don't know if you know this but when Havel and
the Polish presidents signed up to NATO in some ceremony in front of the Czech
Legislature, one of the deputies stood up, blew a whistle and burned a NATO flag. He was
arrested for hooliganism. A poll taken showed that more than 50% of the (Czech) population
approved of his protest. Polls also showed that if there had been a referendum on joining
NATO, it would have been voted down."
RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS REBEL AGAINST NATO
PHOENIX, Mar. 14 - By God's will and providence, just as we were finishing our
above edited version of our Churchill's mock "NWO Iron Curtain" speech,
delivered at the St. Peter and St. Paul cathedral on the day of NATO's eastward expansion,
we received the following unsolicited "Charter of Scientists" from a group of 11
eminent Russian academics, based in St. Petersburg. Even if the Yeltsin NWO quisling
government is doing its best to help the One Worlders destroy Russia, there are some
conscientious dissenters who are refusing to go along. Is anyone connoting here the German
scientists who defected to the U.S. to help fight Hitler?
CHARTER OF SCIENTISTS
"The forces of aggression are attempting to establish a
New World Order upon this Earth. In April, NATO intends to trample upon the existing
principles of global socio-political order established in the aftermath of the W.W.II.
Those principles were incorporated in the founding documents of the UN and the NATO acts,
in fact, mean liquidation of the UN with simultaneous assumption by NATO de jure the
functions of an international policeman that NATO have already assumed de facto.
In the practice of persuading by the pressure of bare force the
countries refusing to submit to foreign dictate is the resurrection of the worst
traditions of international crime and by its nature it constitutes a crime against
We, scientists, - the defenders of the world peace, - assume our
responsibility towards the humanity for the knowledge that we and our predecessors have
imparted to the society. That knowledge brought technological and intellectual advancement
improving the living standards but it also contributed to creation of weapons of war and
human enslavement. Now we take upon ourselves the honorable duty of preserving peace and
freedom on this Earth.
We should create and offer to the potential victims of our past
activities cheap and simple methods of production of the highly effective anti-weaponry.
That spells creation of simple in manufacturing but high in technology anti-weapons in
every field of scientific endeavor used in weapons production, including genetic, economic
and informational weapons.
We fully understand that only healthy nationalists, the
individuals dedicated to their peoples and races, may share our approach, stepping forward
to combat the ugliness of the New World Order and cosmopolitanism of the "One World
We also acknowledge the fact that quite a few of us at present
are bound by the bonds of non-disclosure of the classified information in our respective
countries. To circumvent that handicap we suggest scientists of the weaker countries
methods for creating anti-weapons against the weapons of their stronger adversaries.
There are more weapons upon this earth that people may need. For
that reason we chose the alternative to creation of new weapons way that consists in
publishing of new technologies of the anti-weapons widely.
We would publish suggestions of all co-signers to this charter
without giving it a second thought. We welcome anonymous offers too but we feel compelled
to submit them to the expertise of the qualified people.
Any scientist may join that charter regardless of his racial,
national, civic, political or any other properties or affiliations that he might have.
Sending a letter of consent in any form is all that it takes. That letter could be mailed
to any of the shown below addresses."

RUSSIAN-AMERICANS SNUB NATO CELEBRATION
PHOENIX, Mar. 14 - Again by God's will and providence, just as we were finishing
the above edited version of our Churchill's mock "NWO Iron Curtain" speech, we
also received a copy of the following letter which Peter Budzilovich,
president of the Congress of Russian-Americans, sent to the chairman of the NATO
Anniversary Summit Host Committee, turning down his invitation to become an "Honorary
Member of the NATO 50th Anniversary Summit Host Committee:"
The Honorable Alan John Blinken, Chairman
NATO Anniversary Summit Host Committee
1301 Constitution Avenue, NW, Fourth Floor
Washington, DC 20470
Dear Mr. Blinken:
Thank you for inviting me to serve as an Honorary Member of the
NATO 50th Anniversary Summit Host Committee.
Regretfully, I must decline the invitation because I feel that
there is little cause for celebration. It is my considered opinion that the NATO of today
is a far cry from the organization that was formed 50 years ago.
Today's NATO is embarking on the course that takes it away from
its original goal -- opposing the aggressive expansion of the Soviet Union, a function
worthy of support by all freedom-loving people, -- onto a course of selective coercion,
bordering on state-sponsored terrorism. In short, it is evolving from a defender of
democracy and freedom into an aggressor in its own right. The Congress of
Russian-Americans has joined many prominent statesmen in their opposition to the expansion
of NATO. We firmly believe that the act of bringing NATO closer to the Russian
Federation's border is going to strengthen Communists inside Russia and, at the same time,
have a chilling effect on the struggling Russian democracy. This is a sure road to
The Congress of Russian-Americans views with concern further
development of the NATO aggressive policies.
Very truly yours,
Peter N. Budzilovich
