Christophe de Margerie Eliminated – In Putin’s Russia
∘ There are no accidents in the world of politics and finance – Just planned executions ∘
October 21, 2014, Christophe de Margerie, the CEO of the French oil company Total, was killed in a business jet crash at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow after the aircraft reportedly hit a snow-plough on take-off.
This death is just one more in a series of accidental deaths and suicides that have become quite trendy lately among the people in positions of power.
The death of Christophe de Marger in a plane crash seems a bit too convenient. Just three months ago, he had dared to publicly utter the words, “There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars”. He had further said, “the fact that oil prices are quoted in dollars per barrel did not mean that payments actually had to be made in that currency.”
Now, Christophe de Margerie is dead – Died in a plane crash in Mr. Putin’s Russia.
Russia’s publicaly stated policy is to break the hegemony of the Petrodollar. Christophe de Margerie was taking the same line – not that he had any political ambitions, he was simply making a statement of fact in the interests of his oil company. If he was taken out, then who could have the power to do it in Russia?
In this era of tyranny of The Empire, to many of us, Putin seems to be the only hope of the humanity. But, while looking back at some of his disturbing actions, and numerous contradicting facts, it is not possible to overlook the probability that Putin may not be what we want ourselves to believe.
We have to consider the possibility what if Mr. Putin is also playing the game? What if Mr. Putin is also in it to pull the wool over the publics’ eyes – and betray the humanity?
Let’s look at some of the facts and the track record of Mr. Putin:
9-11 and Mr. Putin:
Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly stated that he had ordered his intelligence agencies to alert the US in the summer of 2001 that suicide pilots were training for attacks on US targets.The head of Russian intelligence also stated, “We had clearly warned them” on several occasions, but they “did not pay the necessary attention.”
Even to-date, while every one with any thought process still going on in the upper story doubts the official version of the 9-11 events, Mr. Putin still toes the US official line – “We warned the US . . .”
Mr. Putin was a full partner in the US invasion of Afghanistan – He had opened the Russian airspace and provided the logistical support to US to facilitate the entire operation.
Also, it is difficult to erase form the memory images of Mr. Putin hugging and kissing George W Bush’s dog at his ranch in Crawford !
Mr. Putin’s support of UN sanctions:
In December 2000, Moscow had joined Washington in supporting United Nations sanctions against the Taliban and later appealed for sanctions against Pakistan for aiding the Taliban.
Terrorist Attack on Children in Beslan:
That was an horrendous act. The official description of the tragic event don’t add-up to the scrutiny. Many Russians still doubt the official story line and accuse Mr. Putin, if not for outright plotting the event, for being responsible for such heavy casualties.
Anyway, the Beslan massacre did provide Putin the opportunity to launch a major clean up operation in Chechnya.
Here is a narration of the Beslan terrorist attack:
“On 1 September 2004 a group of terrorists surrounded a community of children, parents and teachers celebrating the first day of the new school year in Beslan, a southern Russian town in the republic of North Ossetia, and took them hostage. Responding officials put the number held at a few hundred, downplaying the reality that 1127 people were captive. For 3 days, the hostages were held in the cramped conditions of the school. At least 30 hostages and 3 terrorists died the first day.On the second day, former President of Ingushetia, Ruslan Aushev negotiated the release of 26 hostages, 11women and 15 children. No further progress was made.
Shortly after 1 pm on the third day, an unexplained explosion punctured a hole at the roof of the school, followed by another less than 2 min later. A third explosion rocked the gymnasium where most of the hostages were held, killing scores.
Under the commotion of explosions, Russian Special Forces stormed the school, aided by an ad hoc group of local Ossetian men with guns. Thermobaric weapons and tank rounds were fired into the school. The gymnasium roof was soon aflame and collapsed upon those beneath. Only at 10:25 pm did the guns fall silent with all terrorists, bar one pronounced dead. It took considerable time to establish that 334 hostages had died in the school,188 of them school children.”
That entire narration of the events stinks bad. Further to complicate the situation were the reports that at the time of the terrorist attack, Russian Security Forces were conducting a “terrorist attack simulation” drill in Beslan, and the “fake” explosives were planted on the school’s roof as part of the drill – sounds familiar!
Polish President & Entourage Killed in Plane Crash:
In 2010, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, along with Ninety-five other military, political and public figures, including his wife, was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia.
That event also stinks bad. There are many who believe that the entire presidential entourage was killed before, the bodies dumped in the plane, and then the plane was crashed in Russia!
Killing of The Journalists in Russia:
In Mr. Putin’s Russia, a total of 119 journalists have been killed or suicided since 2000.
The assassination of Anna Politkovskaya in 2006 made the headlines globally. Her murder was widely perceived as a contract killing. Anna Politkovskaya was the Russian journalist, writer and human rights activist. She was well known for her opposition to the Chechen conflict and criticism of Mr. Putin. She had authored several books about the Chechen wars.
The Shadows of Doubt
In our desperation, we want to hold on to the straw – Mr. Putin. There is no one else in sight. But, in order to scientifically analyze the events and see the things clearly, it is prudent to get rid of our personal desires, wishes, and opinions – just look at the facts objectively, and accept whatever is there.
T o be objective, and to give the benefit of doubt to Mr. Putin, we have to consider another possibility – The possibility that Mr. Putin doesn’t have the complete control over all the governmental agencies and apparatus. And, there are elements who are at work to sabotage his credibility and authority. We cannot overlook the fact that Christophe de Margerie, in taking a public stance against the hegemony of the petrodollar, was on the same page as Mr. Putin.
Mr. Putin may have all the good intentions, but, still, there are so many pointers that are pointing in a different direction.
