I still hate the thought of paying an entry fee to get read, but Im willing to do whatever it takes at this point. Well, thats about it for now. I will try to post again next week, but I wont promise because weve all seen how reliable. As always, follow me on, facebook and, twitter. Also, check out my website. Im hoping to update it when I get a chance, but Im trying to make writing my priority, so who knows when that will be? April 14, 2015, author, justin.

I just have confidence issues. Writing is still progressing, although I really have to learn to do an outline. At least a rudimentary one that I can refer to when I get stuck. I dropped using one story because it wasnt going anywhere, only to jump right into another which is now having the same problem. Once upon a time, i was able to just jump into the proverbial story car and see where i ended. Nowadays, i need at least a simple road map. Of course, i have to remember that back when I could just go, the destination wasnt always somewhere i wanted. I am also considering submitting a few things to some writing competitions.
Hopefully i will catch their eye. Now for the bad news. I was all ready to send it out. I had everything formatted properly. I had checked my spelling and punctuation several times (although Im sure i still missed a typo or two.) I went to their website and they arent accepting submissions until may 1st. I realize this is only a couple weeks away, but Im hoping I still have confidence in my writing by then. Dont get me wrong, Im still going to send it out.
Sorry for the late reply: How to Apologize for a delayed
It appears I hertz lied to you again when I said in my last post that I would see you the following week. Fortunately, i posted that on April 1st, so uh April fools? Anyway, you should all know that Im less than reliable when it comes to regular posts by now. Anyway, heres the good news. I have a story ready to ship. So far, everyone ive shown it to seems to really like.
Better yet, i really like. I feel ive finally progressed to the point with my writing that I can start submitting. (If you ask my girlfriend, shed say ive been at that point for a while. Ive just been a chicken.) I have a publisher in mind for the story. Yes, they are one of the better paying publishers, but thats a secondary consideration compared to the prestige of having a story accepted by said publisher. I realize its probably a long shot, me being an unpublished writer, but why not shoot for the moon, right? Besides, they say they love discovering new writers.
Gorbachev, who is denounced as a foolish idealist by many russians, trusted the western powers. He should have had a battalion of New York city garment district shyster lawyers to document his agreements in 1990. . he thought he was dealing with honest, honorable men, like himself. Is it any wonder after this bait and switch diplomacy that Russia has no trust in the western powers? . Moscow watches us-run nato oozing ever eastwards.
Today, russias leaders firmly believe washingtons ultimate plan is to tear apart Russia and reduce it to an impotent, pauper nation. . Two former Western leaders, napoleon and Hitler, had similar plans. Instead of carrying on about Hitlers duplicity after Munich, we should look at our own shameless behavior after 1990. Teachers play an important role in our lives. They introduce us to the world, teach us new things and make us polished individuals. But in the midst of all of that they do, we often end up being. Hello again my adoring fans. Also, hello to those of you who hate me and the ones who have no idea who.
Sorry for haven't written for so long."
nato had no need or business to expand eastward. . Doing so would be a constant provocation to russia, which regarded Eastern Europe as an essential defensive glacis against invasions from the twist west. Now, with nato forces on its western borders, russias deepest help fears have been realized. Today, us military aircraft based on the coasts of Romania and Bulgaria, former Warsaw Pact members, probe russian airspace over the Black sea and the vital strategic port of sevastopol. . Washington talks about arming chaotic Ukraine. . us and nato troops are in the baltic, on Russias northwestern borders. . Polish right-wingers are beating the war drums against Russia. In 1990, kgb and cia agreed to the principal of not one inch eastward for nato. . Former us ambassador to moscow, jack matlock, confirms the same agreement.
these eastward moves by the us and nato. . The best response nato and Washington could come up with was, well, there was no official written promise. . This is worthy of a street peddler selling counterfeit watches. . The leaders of the us, britain, France, belgium and Italy all lied. . Germany was caught between its honor and imminent reunification. So even its Chancellor Helmut Kohl had to go along with the wests prevarications. At the time, i wrote that the best solution would be for the demilitarization of formerly soviet-controlled Eastern Europe. .
He ordered the red Army back from Eastern Europe. . I was in Wunsdorf, east Germany, twist hq of the Group of soviet Forces, germany, and at Stasi secret police hq in East Berlin right after the pullout order was given. . The soviets withdrew their 338,000 troops and 4,200 tanks and sent them home at lightening speed. Western promises made to soviet leaders by President george. Bush and Jim baker quickly proved to be empty. . They were honorable men but their successors were not. . Presidents Bill Clinton and george. Bush quickly began moving nato into eastern Europe, violating all the pledges made to moscow. The poles, hungarians and czechs were brought into nato, then Romania and Bulgaria, the baltic States, Albania, and Montenegro. .

At a time when the United States is convulsed by anti-russian hysteria and demonization of Vladimir Putin, a trove of recently declassified Cold War documents reveals the astounding extent of the lies, duplicity and double-dealing engaged in by the western powers with the collapsing soviet. I was covering Moscow in those days and met some of the key players in this sordid drama. . Ever since, business ive been writing that the soviet leader, mikhail Gorbachev, and Foreign Minister, Eduard Shevardnadze, were shamelessly lied to and deceived by the United States, Britain, and their appendage, nato. All the western powers promised Gorbachev and Shevardnadze that nato would not expand eastward by one inch if Moscow would pull the red Army out of East Germany and allow it to peacefully reunify with West Germany. This was a titanic concession by gorbachev: it led to a failed coup against him in 1991 by communist hardliners. The documents released by george washington University in Washington dc, which i attended for a semester, make sickening reading (see them online). . All western powers and statesmen assured the russians that nato would not take advantage of the soviet retreat and that a new era of amity and cooperation would dawn in post-Cold War Europe. Us secretary of State jim baker offered ironclad guarantees there would be no nato expansion. Gorbachev was a humanist, a very decent, intelligent man who believed he could end the cold War and nuclear arms race.
