Gorbachev: From The Berlin Wall to The Mexico Wall

On November 9th, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell heralding the start of a new era for Central and Eastern Europe.

It looked like peace would finally break out over the world.

The nations of Central and Eastern Europe formerly under Communist rule became democracies.

The Soviet Union itself was undergoing a process of democratization under its President and Soviet Communist Party General-Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev.

Gorbachev won the Nobel Peace Prize for his achievements in 1990.

Then in August 1991, tragedy struck.

Hardliners in the Soviet Red Army and the Politburo staged a coup against Gorbachev.

Gorbachev was on holidays at his Black Sea dachau in the Crimea at the time.

Meanwhile in Moscow, Russian Federation President Boris Yeltsin climbed on to a tank, raised his fist in the air and shouted his defiance against the hardliners.

The coup eventually collapsed.

Two days after the coup attempt, Gorbachev returned to Moscow but a diminished figure.

The feisty Russian Federation President Boris Yeltsin was now the man of the hour.

By December of 1991, Yeltsin had met with the Presidents of the other Republics of the U.S.S.R. and they had signed a new Treaty forming what was called the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The Soviet Union was now finished in practical reality.

Its legal and formal dissolution occurred on Western Gregorian Calendar Christmas Day- December 25th, 1991 with the stroke of a pen signed by Mikhail Gorbachev’s hand.

Nationalism instead of Communism would emerge as the new driving force in the former Republics of the U.S.S.R.

Such intense nationalism would lead to conflict between Georgia and Russia in 2008 and then between Russia and Ukraine from 2014 until the present day.

And now intense nationalism had come to the world’s other nuclear power- the United States.

Its proponent- a man named Donald Trump.

Within a period of 28 years, the world had gone from the tearing down of a wall that divided the great German city of Berlin to a proposed wall that would be built along the Mexico-U.S. border..

Then in the South China Sea- intense nationalism had likewise taken hold.

China, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia all laid claim to islands in the South China Sea.

In the Middle East, it looked like a two-state solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was slowly being buried under a policy change in the Trump Administration in Washington DC.

And then there was North Korea with its peculiar extremely isolationist and extremely paranoid form of nationalism

The killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s brother Kim Jong-nam by lethal use of a poisoned facecloth at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia had shown the bizarre turn the world had now taken.

James Bond movies had met with the Apocalypse of the Book of Revelation.

Gorbachev sighed.

He felt in his heart World War III was coming.

Russian and NATO troops were now facing one another on the Polish-Russian border and the Latvian-Russian border.

World War I had begun with the assassination of the ArchDuke Franz Ferdinand the nephew of the Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria.

Perhaps in some twisted sick way, the developing scenario for World War III had begun with the assassination of Kim Jong-nam the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Perhaps the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 en route from Malaysia to China and the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Eastern Ukraine was Divine Providence’s way of letting the world know of how the bullet that would start World War III would occur.

It would occur in the form of a poisoned facecloth thrown in Kuala Lumpur Airport.

American reporter Lincoln Steffens had once said “I have seen the future and it works” when he visited the U.S.S.R.

Gorbachev felt within, “I have seen the future and it is dark.”

Steffens turned out to be wrong.

Gorbachev prayed that he was.
