Between 16-25 december 1989, a series of events took place throughout Romania, which overthrew the communist regime of Ceausescu and killed over 1200 people, most of them in the capital city Bucharest.

Protests began in Timisoara on december 16 1989, which resulted in an uncontrollable riot. On the morning of december 21, Ceausescu made a speech in Bucharest to address the situation, during which a protest broke out.

The streets were taken over by protesters and Ceausescu fled by helicopter to an unknown destination. At mid-day, the television broadcasted the news of the regime overthrow and a new provisional committee was formed.

In the evening, the crowds from the central square were fired upon, causing chaos and confusion. The shooting and violence lasted until Christmas day. Ceausescu was captured in Targoviste, underwent a 2 hours trial and was executed together with this wife..

On Christmas day, the final number of victims was 1200 dead and 3000 wounded. The perpetrators of the violent events were unknown and different theories have been circulated since. Numerous Securitate archives (communist state police) were burnt in an inexplicable fire, erasing traces that couldve shed the anti-Ceausescu communists in a not very flattering light.

Ceausescu was blamed for the violence (though to proof has been presented) and he was summarily executed. The new government was lead by other communists who had been marginalized by Ceausescu. Their rise to power was facilitated by the chaos and violence erupted.  What was initially a peaceful revolution and transition to democracy was hijacked and turned it into a bloodbath. They portrayed themselves as symbols of people’s struggle for democracy against communism, when they formed the National Front of Salvation party. A few months later, civilians protested in Bucharest against the new party, claiming they wanted “complete eradication of communism” in Romania. They were met with extreme violence yet again, as Ion Iliescu called for support of miners to “restore order” against so-called hooligans in Bucharest. The extreme violence was caught on tape.

UPDATE: In March 2015, the Mineriad probe has been re-opened and Ion Iliescu (leader of the 1989 revolution) is being investigated, along with others, for “crimes against humanity”.

The protests were violently suppressed and the ex-communists remained in power. Their subsequent reforms proved the opposite as national interest was not in their heart; the country was pulled into ever-increasing debt with international banks, which numbered 100 billion euros by 2014 (considering that in April 1989 it was basically zero). The Polish Embassy in Moscow recently published documents which prove that the leaders of the “Salvation Front” asked for Soviet intervention in Romania, which is considered high-treason.

No person has been brought to justice yet for the 1989 events.

Unknown Snipers and Western backed “Regime Change”

Unknown snipers played a pivotal role throughout the  so-called  « Arab Spring Revolutions »  yet, in spite of reports of their presence in the mainstream media, surprisingly little attention has been paid to  to their purpose and role.

The Russian investigative journalist Nikolay Starikov has written a book which discusses the role of unknown snipers in the destabilization of countries targeted for regime change by the United States and its allies. The following article attempts to elucidate some historical examples of this technique with a view to providing a background within which to understand the current cover war on the people of Syria by death squads in the service of Western intelligence.

Romania 1989.

In Susanne Brandstätter’s documentary ‘Checkmate: Strategy of a Revolution’ aired on Arte television station,  Western intelligence officials revealed how  death squads were used to destabilize Romania and turn its people against the head of state Nicolae Ceaucescu. The documentary shows how agents provocateurs and criminal elements were used to create false flags dramatically covered by Western media against the Romanian government in order to bring it down, regardless of the risk of peace or safety to civilians.

Nicu Ceausescu, the youngest son of Nicolae Ceausescu, was brought into the Television room to make a statement. Beaten and stabbed, he was publicly accused of “genocide” before receiving medical care. The accusations were later removed. A state of chaos and confusion was constantly fed through the media.
