Tragic News Predawn

Linh Dinh

[Bar Baraban in Kiev on 2/18/16]

Luckier than many, I look forward to each day, so getting up is my favorite activity. Often leaving my dwelling before the sun rises, I soak in all activities with elation and gratitude. In Vietnam, this means hearing birds, roosters, street sweepers and other early risers. In the dark, they exercise or walk briskly.

During my six months in Tirana, I was daily astounded by the Skanderberg Mountain Range, as seen from my 8th floor window. In Cape Town, it was the Table Mountain as I walked out my door. In Phnom Penh, the sight of the Central Market’s dome never failed to cheer me. Seeing it each morning from my Zing Hotel room meant it was time to hit the still dark alleys. In Pakse, the earliest light would reveal Amor Fati Cafe across the street. Sometimes, an old, hobbling woman who rarely strayed from her block would look up to see me. On the ground floor, Sơn and Thảo, meaning Mountain and Grass, would be busy setting up their hotel’s restaurant while getting their kids ready for school.

This morning, my usual elation was punctured and poisoned by the horrible news Gonzalo Lira had been murdered. Abandoned by his government and mocked by gleeful cowards, Lira had been tortured to death by a regime fronted by a corrupt clown and sustained mostly with American money.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 2/24/22 was merely a belated reaction to the American orchestrated Maidan Revolution of February 2014. Like Jews, Uncle Sam routinely inverts reality, so the destruction and humiliation of Ukraine, now in its final chapter, would be rebranded “The Revolution of Dignity.” Visiting Ukraine just two years later, I witnessed a society already on its knees, with its young men farcically sacrificed in a self-destructive war against Russia. The main American architect behind this was the Jewish Victoria Nuland. Since her grandfather had been forced to flee his native Odessa, Victoria was exacting payback, plus outrageous compound interest, but there were other factors.

On 3/28/22, Gonzalo Lira encapsulated these expertly in a YouTube video. The next day, I added, “A large chunk of Ukraine and southern Russia was once Khazaria, a Turkic kingdom that converted to Judaism in the 8th century. The extent and depth of this conversion have been much debated. Though mostly forgotten, Khazaria was a rival to Christian Byzantium and the Islamic Caliphate for three centuries, with its final demise in the 10th century effected by, drum roll please, Russians! Jewish Khazaria’s annihilator was Sviatoslav I of Kiev.” Jews hate Slavs, in short, so a key objective of the Ukraine war is to murder as many Slavs a possible, a point I made on 3/9/22.

It’s easy enough for me to state all this from the safety of Namibia, but Lira was in Kharkiv. Though a “fish on the chopping block,” to borrow a Vietnamese phrase, he gave us invaluable insights and observations from the war zone without self censorship. It’s this bravery that gained Lira admirers worldwide. Scott Ritter, though, shamefully suggested he was colluding with Ukrainian intelligence. To do what, Scott?

On 3/6/22, Lira correctly predicted Western sanction will hurt the West much more than Russia. On 3/23/22, Lira concluded the US was committing suicide, but let me to tweak his assessment slightly. With Jewjabs, unchecked illegal immigration, woke education, cancel culture, cowed intellectuals, Jewjewed media, crumbling infrastructure and lying, pedophilic leaders, America is being murdered with a thousand cuts by Uncle Sam’s puppeteer. This is undeniable to anyone paying the least attention, but that’s asking a lot. Here’s a clue: Sam’s increasingly naked genocidal lust mirrors Israel’s, so locked in the sickest 69, they’ll sink together.

Lira was among the few who remembered the Jewjab murdered Tiffany Dover. Sometimes, Lira was wrong, as when he thought Zelensky would soon be assassinated by the US itself. So what? Bold and blunt, Lira literally risked his life to make statements about Zelensky, Putin, Biden and NATO, etc. Among the cowed, Lira stood tall, so that will be his legacy.

Another American in Ukraine is Graham Seibert, but unlike Lira, Seibert is only capable of recycling official bullshit, such as Putin is evil and will flee or be overthrown any time now, Zelensky is the new Churchill, Russians are thinly disguised Mongolians and Ukraine is kicking Russia’s ass, etc. Seibert even believed a Ukrainian babushka had knocked down a Russian drone with a jar of tomatoes ferociously pitched from her balcony!

For mouthing nonsense, 80-year-old Seibert is alive in Kiev with his young wife, while Lira is dead, but let me say this: any nation’s chance of survival is proportionate to its ratio of Graham Sieberts to Gonzalo Liras.

On 9/20/23, American born Ukrainian spokesman Sarah Ashton-Cirillo was fired for making cartoonish threats against journalists, “Next week, the teeth of the Russian devil will gnash ever harder, and their rabid mouths will foam in an uncontrollable frenzy as the world will see a favorite Russia propagandist pay for their crimes […] This puppet of Putin will be the first[…] Russia’s war criminal propagandists will all be hunted down, and justice will be served.”

With Lira gone, Ashton-Cirillo wears a sad face as he/she offers condolences to his family, but his/her stance is clear when he/she hopes that Gonzalo will be “able to find redemption with the Lord,” for he’s “guilty of what he was accused of.” This sudden lawyer cum prosecutor cum judge cum jury even concludes that “Gonzalo Lira was a would-be agent of the Russian government”!

As for his death, it was a “natural demise and natural passing” caused by pneumonia brought on by the stress of “insert[ing] himself into a war on the side of the Russians.” No, Sarah, Lira had lived in Ukraine for years with his Ukrainian wife and children. It’s you who inserted yourself into this genocidal war caused by Satanic Jews and the American empire.

Unlike you and Graham Seibert, Lira risked his life to defend Ukraine. He couldn’t stomach seeing it destroyed. You say he deserved what happened for choosing to stay, but that wasn’t just his home, Sarah, but the native land of his wife and children. For the rest of us, Lira also provided unmatched reports from a country being methodically tortured and wrecked. The same folks are doing it in Gaza.

Hopefully, the truth will come out, even if it takes decades or centuries. As American clowns, assholes and psychos are celebrated, its bravest men are smeared with shit then flushed away, but some day, let’s hope, Lira, David McGowan and Gary Webb, among others, will be held up as models to children.

Those kids won’t be American, though, for that sad, sick country swarming with the most timid and self-regarding will have long disappeared.

As their society imploded, all they did was loot, rape, kill each other, “vote” and rap, and why not?

enjoy yourself and
like it like that
groove widda riddum
boppin down da block
move your hands & feet
as you go hip-hop
