SUMMARY IN ENGLISH
CONTRA # 1 1999
A man for Moscow or for Hillary only?
William Jefferson Blythe Clinton is born the same year as King Carl Gustaf
of Sweden, in 1946. He is a child of the radicalism of the 1960s and the
traditional corruption of the state of Arkansas. When he started his political
career at Georgetown University in the mid 1960s, he was, as many Americans
an advocate of social engineering of the type advocated by the Myrdal couple.
In 1969 Clinton made a political pilrimage tour, by rail, through Sweden,
Finland, the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia. This is the first of two articles

Violence in TV is threatening civilization
Contra correspondent Allan C. Brownfeld comments on increased violence in
television. This is affecting especially young people. Violence shown in
TV is usually unable to display the real effects of violent acts. And for
many young people it turns out to be very hard to grasp the difference between
fact and fiction (this statement is actually quoted from a book written
by Sissela Bok, daughter of the Myrdal couple mentioned in the Clinton article

of American Anticommunism was published in 1995 it was noted and discussed

the former employee at the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa, Igor Gouzenko, who
defected to the West.
The Kurds a people without a country
Some times it is claimed that the Kurds are the most popolous people in
the world without a country of their own. This is not literally true, as
some larger peoples in India have to do with a state of their own. Anyway,
the Kurds are approximately 20 million, spread among six countries in the
Middle East. Most of them live in Turkey, where ther Kurdish cause has been
kidnapped by an old-fashioned marxist movement (PKK and Abduallah Öcalan),
which after the fall of the Berlin Wall seems to be unique in its out-of-dateness.
In Iraq, however, Kurds have been succesfull in creating what in practice
is an independent state, something that has been achieved with US support.
The northern parts of Iraq are run by the Kurds and the men of Iraqi leader
Saddam Hussein seem to have no influence whatsoever in that part of Iraq.
