The peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
This Saturday December 2nd 2018 passed away one of the Presidents of USA with more extensive political career in high positions of responsibility of
George H.W. Bush was First Ambassador of USA in the Peoples Republic of China during Nixon Administration, Director of CIA during the Ford
Administration and Vice President during the two terms of the Reagan Adminstration.
His role in politics, either in the domestic arena as well as in the international one is being matter of Analysis this week.
I want to bring my modest contribution to that so difficult task providing my attention to two events that I believe were of outstanding importance of
The first one was his so prudential and serene attitude during the crucial 3 days of the coup d'etat of August of 1991 in the USSR when General
Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev was kidnapped by the ploters.
Those hours were extremely important for the world peace in such a way that is not exaggerated to compare them with the 3 days of the ultimatum given
by President Kennedy to Premier Khrushchev in 1962 to remove the nuclear missiles from Cuba.
If USA diplomacy would have recognized the coup in Moscow as certainly French and Germans did, probably all the achievements in democratization gained
during the Perestroika and Glasnot should be lost for ever.
A new era of decades of Tyranny, in the best style of Joseph Stalin times, may have fallen over not only Russia, or only over the ex USSR countries
but surely over all eastern Europe.
The decision to never remove support to Gorbachev was definitive not only to save his life but restore the constitutional rule and in less than 4
months to send the Soviet Union for ever peacefully to the annals of History.
A civil war in the Soviet Union would be the worst kind of scenario by sure somebody can imagine, since their nuclear arsenal could be used to repress
rebellions by the coupers or to try to regain governability by the opposers to the coup.
Hundreds of potential nuclear detonations were prevented through a smart diplomatic move, explosions that could release tons of radioactivity over the
That points out to his second important attitude to support the request of President Boris Yeltsin that in the dissolution of the USSR all those
nuclear heads must be moved to Russia.
George H.W. Bush by supporting during the Soviet Union coup the resistance of Boris Yeltsin and the vital political role of Mikhail Gorbachev in my
opinion shows the American Diplomacy at its finnest moment of the entire XX century.
Thanks for your attention,
