Press Release (Monday) November 14, 2011: Stalin's Mysterious Death
Did Stalin, the Soviet dictator, die a peaceful death in his own bed or was he poisoned by Beria? What is the new medical evidence?
With the possible exception of Mao Tse-tung, the greatest mass murderer in history was Joseph Dzhugashvili, who was better known as Stalin (1879-1953). Stalin ruled the Soviet Union virtually from 1924 to 1953 with an iron hand in an atmosphere of perpetual mass terror. Many of us have wondered how this monster of a man could have ruled for so long, and then died so peacefully of a natural death, a stroke, in defiance of Divine justice, after having eliminated so many of his own people as if they were merely inconvenient statistics.
The picture painted by Premier Nikita Khrushchev, his eventual successor, and the Russian press was that Stalin died quietly while in the private sanctuary of his comfortable inner dacha. Medical care was only slightly delayed because the Great Leader was thought only to have overslept and did not need to be disturbed! But who was this Great Leader?
Stalin was the man who turned the USSR into a massive police state, a vast Gulag Archipelago of concentration camps, and who exterminated 20 to 40 million of his own countrymen. Stalin was the man who turned Russia into a ghastly meat-grinder of Soviet society, including decimation of Lenin's old friends from the Old Bolshevik ranks and the legendary October 1917 Revolution: the "right deviationists," Rykov, Tomsky, and of course, Bukharin, then the "leftist Troskyites," Kamenev, Zinoviev, and Trotsky himself; the man who purged the Russian Army eliminating 90% of the Red Army top commanders, including Marshall Tukhachevsky; the man who cleansed the Security Apparatus and made the heads of the secret police trembled. The Great Leader, Joseph Stalin, may not have, after all, died of natural causes peacefully in his dacha!
Miguel A. Faria, Jr., M.D., a retired Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery and Adjunct Professor of Medical History from Mercer University School of Medicine in Macon, Georgia has uncovered old evidence that the Russian dictator, the Man of Steel, most likely was eliminated by members of his inner sanctum, who were fearful for their own survival.
In a historic medical article to be published and posted this week in Surgical Neurology International (SNI), an international online journal of neurological scientists, and entitled "Stalin's Mysterious Death," Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Russian dictator was poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's cult of personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.
Dr. Faria's material consist of primary sources cited in at least three books published since the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as clinical, forensic, and autopsy evidence that had been suppressed by the Soviets or forgotten in the secret Russian Archives since 1953, from the time of Lavrenti Beria, Georgi Malenkov, and Nikita Khrushchev.
