Desecration of War Memorial

Letters to the Editor | June 28, 2011, Tuesday // 15:50

I don't think your news agency is the place I thought it was. Attacking Russia is easy because you have American promises in your pocket. As they slip down the economic ranks their political status is also lowered. Their military capacity is neither here nor there.

Bulgaria would be wiped out in seconds if ever a confrontation developed between America and Russia. It is not in your best interests to collude with right wing forces to strike at the heart of such a military superpower as Russia. It is idiocy. Bulgaria is in the grip of social and economic and political change. It will not successfully transform itself by colluding with the hounds from hell. This is madness.

We saw what they did a month or so again. Friday prayers. I'm sure you recall the confrontation. Turkey is a powerful neighbour and unlike Russia will take decisive action against those who insult it and assault it as was the case in Bulgaria. It is a major trading partner. Quite apart from the madness of creating religious divisions within your country you are also disturbing the wider EU Turkey relationship. You can not control extreme right forces. By colluding with them to attack Russia and lets face it - this desecration was an act of war - you are adding fuel to a major burning fire. This fire will burn Bulgaria down.

Russia needs an ally to sort out such insults. Turkey has grand strategic significance. And with the lunatics in Israel murdering Turkish citizens on the open seas in the same way they kill Palestinians and Syrians we have the beginnings of a shift in Turkey's intertnational outlook.

Bulgaria needs to keep out of the burning kitchen. Its interests are better represented by friendly relations with everyone in the region. Russia is outraged.
