=======================================
Congratulations to the People of Belarus!

Dear Belarusian Friends,

Please let me congratulate President Lukashenko on his resounding reelection victory and the people of your brave country for standing up to intimidation, disinformation and slander, and delivering a stirring example to the rest of the world.

For months now myself and many other friends of peace and justice have defended your courageous nation and people, and have attempted to tear through the wall of lies and libel directed at your president and your country.

Your victory today is a triumph for all of us, for people around the world who believe that might is not right; that all nations and all peoples are equals - and brothers - and that having the deadliest military arsenal and the mightiest propaganda apparatus does not entitle one nation to dictate to others which course they have to adopt economically and politically.

Your neighbors - Russia, Ukraine, Macedonia, Moldova, Bulgaria, Slovakia and the people of Yugoslavia - and peoples throughout the world will take great heart in witnessing how even a comparatively small nation like Belarus can stand on principle and integrity to defend its own independence and dignity, and in so doing defend that of all of us.

On a personal note, your nation's brave example fills me with even more pride, as my paternal grandfather came to the United States from Belarus, from Brest-Litovsk, in 1913.

As the peace-loving and democratic majority of humanity eventually turns back the tide of global militarism and the bullying and autocracy that currently threatens the world, we will look back on yesterday's election in Belarus as an historical turning point.

With deepest gratitude and warmest congratulations,
Rick Rozoff

1) Why is Lukashenko NATO's Enemy #1 in the former Soviet Union? Because he is resisting Washington's Imperial strategy as discussed in:

* 'Why is NATO Decimating the Balkans and Trying to Force Milosevic to Surrender?' by Jared Israel and Nico Varkevisser at http://emperors-clothes.com/analysis/whyisn.htm

2) A few months ago, FBI agents arrested a Russian Pavel Borodin, a Russian diplomat, who had been invited to George W.'s inauguration. Many people felt the real target was Lukashenko's attempt to reunite Belarus, Russia and other former Soviet Republics.

3) The U.S. directed a coup d'etat against Yugoslavia using the same methods now in operation in Belarus. See: 'U.S. Arrogance and Yugoslav Elections' at http://emperors-clothes.com/engl.htm (By Jared Israel, Michel Chossudovsky, Nico Varkovisser Peter Maher and Karen Talbot)

For a post mortem admission of the extent of U.S. control of the Yugoslav coup, see George Szamuely's report on the National Endowment for Democracy and its funding of the 'student group,' Otpor, 'Eviscerating Democracy' at http://emperors-clothes.com/articles/szamuely/neda2.htm

4) Mark Almond has a very good letter in the 'Guardian' about Belarus called 'For Nicaragua, Read Belarus.' It can be read at http://emperors-clothes.com/letters/alm.htm
