Limonov: The West’s War against Russia Is Forever

The only language they'll understand and respect is the language of force - a particularly timely point on the eve of the NATO summit.

We’ve already realized that there is a global war going on between the West and Russia: in the Donbass and Syria, and via militarist intimidation (NATO’s maneuvers in the Baltic countries - the examples are all around us). They expel us from international sporting contests under the pretext of doping. This goes everywhere – from culture as well, for example by awarding the Nobel Prize to Svetlana Alexievich for her anti-Russia writing.

Before, they were against Soviet power. Now a maniacal imperial state is confronting us with its stubborn delusions of grandeur.

"It’s useless trying to appease them, appealing to reason"

Imagine them all as antediluvian lizards, meat-eating dinosaurs.  

A friendly pack of smaller Anglo-Saxon predators and instigators runs after the US: Great Britain, Canada, Australia are first. Then lizards from Germany, France and the whole brood of small animals in Eastern Europe with incurable inferiority complexes towards Russia, who are the vilest instigators.

These beasts will never forgive us for the annexation of the Crimea, despite the fact that they themselves are blatant aggressors; they can’t stand for us to be braver. The war against us will not last for a long time – it will last forever.  

It’s useless trying to appease them, appealing to reason. We need to stand up and claim non-diplomatic but biblical morality. For example, in the mid-seventies, a militant organization in war-torn Beirut kidnapped four Soviet diplomats. Our government demanded they be returned. In response, they shot one of them and threw the corpse out of the car in front of the Russian Embassy.  

Our government got mad. It captured four relatives of the leaders of this militia, shot them and threw them into a Beirut street, their cut off penises in their mouths. Later in the day, the remaining three Russian diplomats were delivered safe and sound to the USSR Embassy in Beirut.

By the way, I read this story in Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA, 1981-1987” by Bob Woodward, one of the journalists who broke the Watergate story. Back then, Americans admired us.
