Ramzan Kadyrov

A reader discusses this photo of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov:

In regards to your recent post "Say it loud I'm S and I'm proud" I couldn't help remembering a picture I found of current Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov who is widely known to be a sadistic and dangeous s.o.b., many also say he is extremely charming, fits the profile of a sociopath. I attached a picture of him that needs no further description. Look at it carefully, notice the smirk and the t-shirt. Made me laugh, thinking he is proud of his reputation, and how you put it "I'm S and I'm proud!".

If you're going to write about Kadyrov, do a quick search on him, you'll find plenty of very interesting information. I remembered the charming part from an interview with him that I read somewhere, can't remember which magazine I read it in though, but the reporter specifically used the word charming when describing him, it stuck in my head. The reporter was questioning how could such a well mannered and charming man be considered such a ruthless dictator. He also likes paying celebrities to party with him, he enjoys being seen with famous or important people, it gives a boost to his fragile ego I guess. Also plenty of info on the torture he applies to his political enemies including the now infamous boiling alive of some of his opponents and some rather interesting speculation of him having a prison in which he enjoys making his prisoners watch him while he has sex. Interesting paralel between him and Saddam Hussein, which is why I got interested in Kadyrov in the first place. While both privately more or less neutral towards religion, in public they made efforts to appear devout muslims. Saddam especially in the later part of his rule, shaped his image after Salah ad Din (popularly known as Saladin), which was a brilliant military commander, devout muslim and national hero of Iraq and the arab world. Even statues or artistic representations pertaining to Saddam's cult of personality were modeled after ancient representations of Saladin. I was wondering if it was just simple politics or the power they held made them see themselves as divine or under divine protection. After the first Gulf war, even though the coalition defeated Saddam and drove him out of Kuweit, he interpreted it as a divine victory, added God is Great to the Iraqi flag, and started presenting himself as a very devout man.

This sort of reminds of me of a NY Times article I read recently of a Russian man who was barred from attending the memorial service of a 2002 airplane crash because he killed the air traffic controller whom he blamed for the murder of his family:

“The German authorities apparently do not want to let me attend the mourning ceremony,” Mr. Kaloyev told the Interfax news agency in a telephone interview. “They think for some reason that my presence there is unnecessary, although all my family perished in the plane crash.”

In the nighttime accident on July 2, 2002, a Bashkirian Airlines Tupolev passenger jet filled with children headed for a vacation collided with a DHL Boeing 757 cargo airplane, killing 71 people, including 52 children.
***
The only controller on duty at the time, Peter Nielsen, a Danish citizen, had instructed the Russian jet to descend, after noticing that the planes were on a collision course.

Partly because radar data was delayed, owing to technical repairs taking place at the time, and because a colleague was sleeping, Mr. Nielsen was slow in delivering the instruction to descend to the Russian pilots.

But the onboard collision-avoidance systems on the planes issued contradictory instructions, telling the Russian pilots of the passenger plane to ascend, while instructing the DHL jet to descend. The Russian pilots followed the air traffic controller’s advice and the two descending planes collided.

The Boeing’s tail fin severed the Russian fuselage, and both aircraft crashed, scattering debris and bodies over the surrounding countryside.

A German investigation partly blamed Skyguide for the collision.

After learning this, Mr. Kaloyev, an architect said to be overwhelmed with grief, flew to Switzerland in 2004, found Mr. Nielsen’s house and stabbed him to death in a garden. Mr. Nielsen’s wife and three children were home at the time. Mr. Nielsen was 36.

After the killing, Swiss police detained Mr. Kaloyev at a nearby hotel. A court sentenced him to the eight years in prison for murder in 2005, but the authorities released him after he had served two years of the sentence.

To the annoyance of the Swiss, he was welcomed back to his native region of North Ossetia as a hero; the region has a deep tradition of tolerating vendettas.

The story reminded me of this post about how certain societies really are more sociopathic seeming than others.

    2. Odds are, the tyrant is a malignant narcissist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bs1Re2-NAD4

      Think about it: a sociopath just doesn't care enough to do what it takes to get on top and stay on top.

      That terrible self-deception and self-absorption - that crusading mentality - is typical N behavior.

  2. I woke up this morning, changed. It was as if I went into the waters of baptism and came out new.

    There are people who are so immersed in their delusions that there is no reasoning with them. There is no conversing. Nothing can reach them, unless one can wait out the miraculous, which I can't. The miraculous depends on the person's reaching for it, too, as it takes a step of faith from inside the person.

    What does that have to do with me?

    This was my mother, locked in her own small world of delusions, deceptions and unreality.

    I, as a child, wanted her to see me. My life depended on it. If she saw me, I could see myself, I reasoned with my child's mind. I could free myself, walk away with my own identity, which has, always, been my most sought after prize.

    However, I could never do it. At some point, I became dead inside. Then, I found someone who could not see me, too: a sociopath.

    Now, I know why I am attracted to sociopaths.

    One person had it right, about the magic of SW. ME lets us be. He lets us find our way, learn our lessons.
    Thank you, ME.

      Another thing I learned is to walk away, right when someone shows you who they are. Don't stay to see more, because it will be more of the same.
      This would only change, if I felt God led me to that person. In that case, I would stay forever. I hope I would even risk my life, for that person, but short of that I will be running, from now on.

    7. Monica I'm glad for your epiphany and I'm glad you can move on. I agree with you on M.E.'s role in my life. She has let me live vicariously through her and learn lessons without the destructive trial and error I would have otherwise has to go through. It's such a blessing to be born in the internet age.

  5. I saw this comment in yesterday's post

    Good call 6:54.

    ME and I have been discussing this all last night.

    New Rules:

    Interruptions shall be permitted ONLY when one hits the new comment button. Changes of topics, whether "on topic" or not (9:08, we'll be watching you) will be ignored otherwise. Rule breakers will be shamed by management.

    Dissenters will be banned from the comment section, identities stripped, anons outed, etc, etc.


    Is this a joke or is someone retarded? I thought yesterday's post was ME saying she sees interrupting as a form of power? Who is the person making up garbage about enforcing rules for the comments?

      Well, I'm not sure of this but that may have been a kind of snarky response to my comment on interruptions. If it was, would that constitute a troll? At any rate, I thought it was pretty funny.

    STORY TIME!!!!!

    So I was sitting in my car around the nighttime, it wasn't dark yet, and I was using the internet on my phone to check for a business email I was expecting all day. I wasn't near home yet, and it was a must.

    While reading a white car pulls frantically in front of me, and after they park I see some odd head movements going on in the front seat.

    They were making out. I put down my phone, and watch.

    After moments of this I get confused, wondering who would make out that long and it not lead to anything else. Right as I thought that the female looked like she lifted herself, and then sat back down. After more making out she disappears, and the bald guy leans back. Both are out of sight.

    When they pop back up, the female gets on what I figure to be the guy's lap. By now it was so dark they were nothing but silhouettes. Like a creeper I turn on my headlights. They ignore me, and sooner than later I see the familiar humping gestures. These people were fucking, in their car, right in front of me. To make this even more "shameless" the car had no tint, and they were underneath a street light (with my car shined on them). I watched.

    It took them a while, and I soon got bored after getting turned on. The best part was the end.

    After they came, she female hastily gets off the man, and leans more to the right of the car, pulling her hair up. The man literally just pulled his pants up, turned on the car, and they drove off. Not once did they look at the other, and the female turned to face the window completely.

    I experienced regret for the first time....I should have drove up to the driver's side and watched.

  9. Its Putin really pulling all the strings with Kadyrov. Kadryov is a warlord proxy of Russia. The russians started getting a lot of flak in the chechnyan war from losing soldiers and committing war crimes. He got Kadryov to flip sides and offered him power over the country. For Kadryov it was a win because he only desired power. For russia it was a total win, because it took them off the field, made the chechnyans fight each other, and gave them a lot more liberty to use more brutal tactics on the insurgents.
