PostBoris Nemtsov Murder (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 02/28/15 2:45 pm)
Very good post from Cameron Sawyer, 28 February, about the horrible murder of Boris Nemtsov.
In the old days before the collapse of the USSR, Italy received a lot of money. The Christian Democratic Party and its smaller allies was getting funds from the US, while the Communist Party was receiving funds from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
The poor Socialist Party, which was left in the cold, in order to get its own money did everything it could to steal inside Italy.
These "democratic practices" destroyed the soul of Italy so much that is no surprise that now we are in a bloody mess.
Now it is said that Boris Nemtsov was receiving money from NED (National Endowment for Democracy) and from USAID. Should we therefore cry for him or consider him a traitor, as were the Italians Christian Democrats and the Communists?
The Italian fleet today has just sailed for Libyan territorial waters, of course for "training purposes" only.
JE comments: Was Nemtsov painted as a traitor by the Putin regime? The question has suddenly become moot: now he is a martyr.
