Searching for Kuchi & Finding Lizards

Lithuanian Soldiers Prepare Humvees under the glow of the Milky Way

13 July 2009
Ghor Province, Afghanistan

The wake-up alarm sounded at 0345, and by 0430 the Lithuanian soldiers were ready to roll.  The Lithuanians had always arrived early, prepared for action before every mission, but this time we relied on an Afghan guide.  The first part of the mission was to find the Kuchi.  Normally, Lithuanian soldiers perform a reconnaissance before a mission, but they decided to skip the recon to find the Kuchi nomads because, well, they are nomads.

Sewn Vagina

Andrius Simavičius

A 59 years old inhabitant of Lithuanian city Šiauliai J.Š. is accusing the head of gynaecology department at Šiauliai hospital, M.Dr. Andrius Simavičius that he has sewn her vagina almost completely during an operation four years ago.

The mother of three children J.Š. six years ago got into medical condition, that, how it was then explained by Dr. A. Simanavičius, required removal of her womb. The operation was successful, but two years after that she started to feel unbearable pain. After the second operation in 2005 woman realised that her vagina is almost completely sewn.

“Surgeon took away my health, feminity, turned me disabled and ruined my family“- former patient is accusing Dr. A. Simavičius. After the operation woman complained to the Dr. Simavičius, that because of the sewing she can not use prescribed by him drugs. Doctor recomended that she would massage herself at home.

After two yers of celibacy husband of J.Š. has abandoned her and moved to live separately to first floor of their house. That happened after almost 40 years of their marriage, while Mrs. J.Š. was trying to hide her problem from everyone, because of the enormous shame. She is not blaming her husband: “Everyone has only one life to enjoy” – says J.Š.

When finally she overcome her shame and contacted other gynaecologists – everyone was surprised: „Who has sewn you like that?“. M.Dr. Birutė Urmonienė has written into her medical records: „Impossible to perform check-up“. Everyone agreed that one more operation is needed.

However Dr. A. Simavičius has refused to admit his error. He refused to perform an operation himself, or even to give her medical records, needed for operation elsewere.

J.Š., who is currently unemployed, has asked Dr. Simavičius to refund the cost her operation – 50.000 Lt (~14.500EUR). He refused, and now J.Š. is going to claim her damages in the court.

Surgeon A. Simavičius has refused to comment, while there is an ongoing investigation.

Joachim HamanOn 20 May 2009 german magazine "Der Spiegel" has published an article written by "Spiegel staff" called "Hitler's European Holocaust Helpers". One would expect that such influential magazine as "Der Spiegel" would check its sources before publishing, especially on such serious topic, as genocide of 6 millions of European jews.  Unfortunately, that was not the case.
Citation from the article:

Just for example, on June 27, 1941, a colonel in the staff of the Germany's Northern Army Group in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas passed a petrol station surrounded by a crowd of people. There were shouts of bravo and clapping, mothers raised their children to give them a better view. The officer stepped closer and later wrote down what he had seen. "On the concrete courtyard there was blonde man aged around 25, of medium height, who was taking a rest and supporting himself on a wooden club which was as thick as an arm and went up to his chest. At his feet lay 15, 20 people who were dead or dying. Water poured from a hose and washed the blood into a drain."

The soldier continued: "Just a few paces behind this man stood around 20 men who -- guarded by several armed civilians -- awaited their gruesome execution in silent submission. Beckoned with a curt wave, the next one stepped up silently and was (…) beaten to death with the wooden club, and every blow met with enthusiastic cheers from the audience."

When all lay dead on the ground, the blonde murderer climbed on the heap of corpses and played the accordion. His audience sang the Lithuanian anthem as if the orgy of murder had been a national ceremony.

How could something like that happen? For a long time now, this question hasn't just been directed at the Germans, whose central responsibility for the horror is undisputed -- but also at the perpetrators in all countries.

Really strange that german nazi army colonels memoirs are not only cited without even trying to substantiate them, but they are even used to draw far-reaching conclusions. Authors, who did not bother to write their names, neither bothered to check for any historical evidence. Incidentelty just two years ago Lithuanian historian Arvydas Anušauskas has investigated the murder at "Lietūkis" garages, the very same that german colonel has wrongly refered as a petrol station. The research is presented in detail in the book "XX amžiaus slaptieji archyvai.", ISBN 978-9955-34-118-5. The book is Lithuanian, but it was presented to WWII historians, so it would not difficult for "Der Spiegel" staff to get it and translate the relevant chapter. Would they do so, a lot of misinterpretations could be avoided. Namely:

1. The murder happened two days after city of Kaunas was controlled by German nazi troops.

2. In the garages, where this cruel murder took place, from the very beggining there were 40 german soldiers and officers.

3. The blond man, killing jews with a club, reportedly was a German Gestapo sectret police agent. Even if he was born on Lithuanian soil in vicinity of German border, he was of german ancestry and considered himself a faithful servant of the Third Reich. Not surprisingly he was apointed a deputy of german security führer in occupied Lithuania.

4. The cited german colonel that was his very first day in Lithuania, could not understand any Lithuanian, so his testimony about audience singing the Lithuanian anthem is doubtful. Especially while other witnesses claim that russian chastushi songs were sung instead..

Said that, this example in the article in no way can be used to redirect responsibility from Germans to their perpetrators in other countries. It is clear that the murder in Kaunas "Lietūkis" garages was fully directed by Germans.
Such an attempt of "Der Spiegel" staff to find a scapegoat for German genocide in Eastern Europe is not only unprofessional. It is defamatory for Eastern europeans, who themselves have suffered German nazi atrocities comparable to the genocide of jews. Whole villages have been burned down with their alive inhabitants. If "Der Spiegel" will continue in the same manner - they might end up blaming jews themselves guilty of their genocide.

A big march took place in Vilnius on the day of Restoration of Lithuania’s Independence, March 11. An estimated 500-600 people marched through the city centre of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. It wasn't part of the government’s organized celebrations. Lithuanians of all ages gathered together, holding Lithuanian flags in their hands to express the importance of freedom and national ideals. Lithuanian National Centre was the official organizer of the march.
The Lithuanian National Centre is a last year registered ethnic nationalistic movement. Activists of the movement are former members of the National Union, nationalistic party which joined and was absorbed by the moderate Homeland Union Party.
Some left-wing media and George Soros sponsored globalism propaganda organizations pathetically tried to stigmatise the march by calling it skinhead and fascist. It is easy to prove that self proclaimed, Soros funded "Human Rights Monitoring Institute" is lying - just check out pictures:  the absolute majority of marchers have long hair and there is no fascist insignia whatsoever.
