Being born in the very country only 7 years after the end of the world's worst dictatorship leading to WWII, I never thought that I would witness the establishment of another dictatorship at close hold.
Yet, today it is a fact which I cannot overlook. What once was known as the United States of America has become a banana republic ruled by a corrupt dictator and his enablers. There is only one difference: People in banana republics tend to start a revolution against their oppressor. In America people are too complacent. While their democracy vanishes in front of their eyes, Americans are still busy counting dollars.
Today's firing of Lt.Col. Vindman, his brother Yevgeny Vindman and now Gordon Sondland, shows that the dictator in chief does not tolerate people whose loyalty is towards their country rather than the president.
Today will for ever be the day when America turned into a dictatorship. The history books of the future will teach a new generation how their country, once a beacon of freedom and prosperity in the world, became a hated despised place where honesty was banned and an evil lying administration had turned the country into a snake den of corruption and exploitation of its people. They will read the story about how Lt. Col. Vindman, a decorated soldier, loyal to his country, had stood up against a gangster-turned-president and was fired from his job at the White House.
This act of evil, based in the president's primitive seeking of revenge, has shown this man's real character. He has shown us that he relishes his position of sheer unlimited power which now has been amplified by the cowardly acting GOP senators who, knowingly, aquitted the president of abuse of power and obstruction of justice.
America, you are in big trouble.
