Assassination as “Statecraft”

March 17, 2022

At former President Donald Trump’s appearance on January 30 at a rally in Texas, before Trump entered the stage, six security guards took positions in front of the spectators.

Trump was protected from any possible assassins nearby.

We don’t ordinarily think about such things, in part because unlike Mexico, there are no armies of drug dealers that control American politics, nor is our military independent of elected Constitutional leaders.

In the former Soviet Union, however, assassinations were a part of the Soviet means of sustaining political control.

Consider the assassination of President Kennedy by an American Marxist recently returned from the USSR or the assassination of Polish Pope John Paul II after his travel to Poland where the entire Polish nation demonstrated that the Polish Communists had lost control.

The assassination of JFK was no mystery; that “hit” was ordered by Nikita Khrushchev. The assassination of Pope John Paul II was ordered by Leonid Brezhnev and Vladidmir Putin ordered the poisoning of Alexei Navalny and many other critics.

Assassination is statecraft in the former Soviet Union.

Lest we be taken unprepared, it is incumbent that we counter the assassination of our next President (none will bother the current President) by drawing up a list of Russian officials to be targeted for assassination. Sergei Lavrov is at the top of that list as is Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill.

The only unanswered question is “When?”
