Talking about legitimacy

Day before Crimea holds a referendum on leaving Ukraine, our “free press” and western governments shout out loudly about its illegitimacy. But Russia, backing the referendum, does not give a sh*t to us. Why? Because we have showed them that legitimacy means nothing. Let’s take a hard look at just a few famous examples in the past:

In 1953, when CIA and M16 backed army general Fazlollah Zahedi forced legally elected Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq out of office in a coup, we did not call it ‘illegitime’. Instead, we supported Iran’s new autocracy government for decades till it was overthrown by the Iranian Islam Revolution

In 2011, democratically elected Egypt President Mohamed Morsi was ousted by a military coup. Today, we still give the illegal Egypt military government billions of dollars annual aid.

Not long ago, when Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych was forced out of office by none of the three legal means documented in Ukraine Constitution (death, quit, or impeachment), we unconditionally embraced the new illegal Ukraine government without any hesitation. It quickly turned out that we supported the unrest and deliberately backed the massacre to increase the tension at Kiev.

Now we call Crimea’s referendum “illegitimate”. What a joke!

Leaked Phone Call: Kiev Snipers Hired by US-Backed Opposition

They did it again! It sounds so familiar, right? Not long ago, our “free press” was all over the Syria’s rumored chemical weapon attack. Assad was assumed guilty even before any evidence showed that such attack truly happened. When Assad was about to win the civil war, a true chemical weapon attack was aired. The western governments quickly pointed fingers to Assad even before UN investigators entered Syria to gather evidence.

So is Viktor Yanukovich in Ukraine this time. Shortly after an agreement was established between the US-backed opposition and Yanukovich government, snipers killed protestors in Kiev. This caused a huge outcry from western governments and our “free press”, resulting to political collapse of Yanukovich government. The opposition force was much more successful than Syrian rebels.

The only difference between Ukraine and Syria is that this time, a leak happened, proving western is actually behind the scene. But, such news has little value since it does not reinforce the perception that all we westerners did are good and all they (eastern, russia, syria, etc) did are wrong. Thus, our “free press” will not pay much attention to it.
