THE Soviet revisionist renegade group headed by Brezhnev and Kosygin is heading towards ultimate bankruptcy and ruin at a faster pace.
The shameless treachery by this handful of renegades in the recent events in the Middle East has totally discredited them before the world and landed them in a most embarrassing predicament from which they cannot extricate themselves. Their treacherous policy has met with strong opposition from the broad masses of the Soviet people. The strife and rivalry inside this revisionist gang are becoming more bitter and pronounced. Brezhnev and company are having a tougher time and their reactionary hierarchy is growing shakier.
To maintain its reactionary rule, the Soviet revisionist clique is racking its brains and doing everything it can to gloss over its treachery and present itself in a new light.
It has availed itself of every international occasion to indulge in demagogy with a view to making a bad situation look belter. It has lined up a number of followers and issued a seven-nation statement and a seven-nation communique in an effort to patch up its discredited policy of sham anti-imperialism, sham revolution and sham support. It has also directed its pawns, big and small, to cheer and applaud its treacherous policy.
At home, it has used its whole propaganda machine to turn out a fanfare to glorify itself. It has called an assortment of meetings and cooked up resolution after resolution in support of itself. In addition, it has summoned scribblers and 'public celebrities'1 in its pay to sing its praises. On the other hand, it cracks down on the Soviet people and exercises a more ruthless fascist dictatorship over them. All this is a profound reflection of the fear eating away at the hearts of this bunch of renegades.
This was the Setting against which Brezhnev delivered his address to the graduates of the Soviet Military Academy on July 5. In it he laboriously tried to defend the treacherous policy of the Soviet revisionist clique with regard to recent events in the Middle East. He pressingly emphasized: "We can say with confidence that in the critical days of the Middle East crisis our actions are correct” Brezhnev personally gave this performance for no other reason than to deceive the people with filthier lies and to suppress the internal quarrels within the ruling clique by means ot threats so as to bolster up its position.
However, the heinous crimes committed by the Soviet revisionist clique in the critical days of the Middle East events are incontrovertible, plain facts. How can Brezhnev cover them up? By trying to do so, he has only made the crimes more conspicuous.
Brezhnev tried to make people believe that the policy the Soviet revisionist clique followed with regard to the Middle East events was "to stay the aggressor's hand, to protect the lawful interests of the Arab peoples." The fact is exactly the opposite. On the eve of the outbreak of the war, the Soviet revisionist clique knew quite well that Israel's aggression against the Arab countries was imminent. Yet it resorted to deception to lull the Arab countries and frightened them and restrained them from taking effective self-defence action. After war broke out, the Soviet revisionists stepped up their collaboration with the U.S. imperialists and thus gave the aggressors a free hand. The Soviet revisionists did not restrain the aggressors at all, instead, they aided and abetted them; they did not "stay the aggressor's hand" at all, instead, they tied the hands of the victims of aggression and obstructed the Arab people's resistance against aggression and accomplished what the U.S. and Israeli aggressors could not possibly accomplish.
Brezhnev unabashedly declared that the task of the Soviet revisionist clique lay in ''frustrating the plans of imperialism in the Middle East, in helping the Arab states to uphold their freedom and independence." That is an absolute lie. Throughout the Middle East events, there was a steady flow of messages and envoys between the Soviet revisionists and the U.S. imperialists, and dialogues via the "hot line." At the summit talks, the Soviet revisionists revealed their intentions and pledged their loyalty to the U.S. imperialists, thus enthusiastically serving the United States as knaves and accomplices. Was all this for the sake of "frustrating" the plans of imperialism? After the U.S. and Israel unleashed their sudden attack, the Soviet revisionists went back on their word, and, instead of giving any support whatever to the Arab people's war against aggression, ganged up with U.S. imperialism in dishing up "ceasefire resolutions" in the United Nations, served as an international gendarme and compelled the Arab countries to submit to the aggressors. Can this be called "helping" the Arab states?
Brezhnev pretended to condemn Israel by saying that "the aggressor cannot be permitted to derive benefits from his perfidious attack," This is sheer nonsense to deceive people! It was precisely the Soviet revisionists who, together with the U.S. and British imperialists, shielded the Israeli aggressors with the U.N. "ceasefire resolutions," thus enabling Israel to derive benefits from its perfidious attack, and then, by sending U.N. "ceasefire observers," established Israel's occupation of Arab territory as a fail accompli. In all the Soviet revisionists' "condemnation" of Israel, there remained only one empty phrase calling for the "withdrawal of Israeli troops" and even this was meant to deceive the Soviet people and the people of the world and to serve the Soviet ruling clique in bargaining with U.S. imperialism. In the final analysis, this is to enable the aggressors to secure a bigger slice of the benefits.
Brezhnev also dwelt at length on the "relations of friendship and co-operation" between the Soviet revisionists and the Arab countries and expressed his "sympathy"' for the Arab countries which, he said, "are now passing through a difficult period." Brezhnev was simply shedding crocodile tears! The Arab countries have learnt much from their bitter experience during the Middle East events as to what sort of stuff such "friendship" and "co-operation" are. In ordinary times, the Soviet revisionists talk glibly about "support," but at the "critical moment," they always throw overboard their promises; in ordinary times, they talk about nothing but "friendship,'" but at the "critical moment," they do not hesitate to commit acts of betrayal; in ordinary times they shake the hands of the oppressed peoples and pat them on the shoulder but no one can tell when they will slab them in the back. The difficulties and humiliation that the Arab countries are now suffering are the result of the Soviet revisionists' betrayal; yet they still have the cheek to talk about "friendship"' and "co-operation!"
In carrying out their treacherous policy during the Middle East events, Brezhnev and his gang have betrayed not only the Arab people but also the Soviet people and the people of the whole world. During that time, this handful of renegades have played a role more disgusting and shameless than that of Khrushchov, the father of modern revisionism, in the Caribbean crisis.
In the face of this mass of shocking facts, the people of the world will think over in real earnest: the Soviet revisionist clique of renegades has embarked upon selling out everyone it can, some today and others the following day. How can any people be sure that it will not be their turn next? These renegades have been doing one rotten thing one day and another the next day. What are they not capable of doing? Whoever still harbours illusion towards the Soviet revisionist clique and allows himself to be fooled by its false phenomena, failing to recognize its essence, will one day find himself sold out.
The Soviet people will also give this careful thought: this gang of renegades will never cease pursuing its policy of betrayal. Khrushchov has subjected the Soviet Union to humiliation and made a mess of it. Now Khrushchov's successors have committed more monstrous deeds than he did and subjected the Soviet Union to greater humiliation. If things are allowed to go on like this, nobody can tell what an awful mess the Soviet Union Will be in. This is something the Soviet people will never tolerate.
The people of the countries controlled by the Soviet revisionist clique will also naturally give this careful thought: The Caribbean crisis and the recent Middle East events both serve as a warning: should they allow the faithful followers of the Soviet revisionist clique to link the destiny of their countries up with that of the Soviet revisionists and turn their countries into dependencies, they will wake up one morning to find themselves doubly betrayed. Can anyone be happy to live under such conditions?
Brezhnev, Kosygin and their like arc enemies of the Soviet and the world's people, incorrigible renegades and puppet emperors who have sold themselves to the U.S. imperialist overlords. They have staked everything on U.S. imperialism and so they have to go on betraying in order to hang on to their "throne.'' They show their true colours more clearly every time they commit an act of betrayal. Then they put up some kind of camouflage and go on to commit further betrayals. Brezhnev raved in his speech that his clique "will further implement this line consistently and firmly. An immutable line." That is, this handful of renegades is resolved not to mend its ways. It will go on betraying until its doom.
Chairman Mao teaches us: "H is impossible to persuade the imperialists and the Chinese reactionaries to show kindness of heart and turn from their evil ways. The only course is to organize forces and struggle against them . . . overthrow them." The Soviet revisionist renegade clique headed by Brezhnev and Kosygin can and must be dealt with only in this way.
The reactionary regime of Brezhnev and his kind is sitting on a volcano. The contradictions between the Soviet revisionist ruling clique and the Soviet people are irreconcilable. A power struggle inside this clique is inevitable. With the complete bankruptcy of its policy of betrayal, class contradictions in the Soviet Union will undoubtedly further sharpen. Brezhnev and his gang will intensify the fascist dictatorship at home and become further subservient to U.S. imperialism abroad-They want to use this means to maintain their tottering rule. But this can only be like putting more explosives into the powder keg of Soviet politics, which will explode sooner or later.
People have seen that the Caribbean crisis was a sign-post that indicated the road to doom for the renegade Khrushchov. The recent Middle East events are unmistakable signs showing that the renegades Brezhnev and Kosygin are nearing the end of their days. Brezhnev and Kosygin, like Khrushchov, are nothing but passing clowns on the stage of history. They will be drowned in the current of the people's revolution.
