Parliamentary elections in Moldova will be held on 24 February 2019 and it is likely three political forces will take the majority of seats in the new parliament. The oppositional Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova, that supports reestablishment of close relations with Russia, is considered as the leader of election race. The other opponent to the ruling regime is the right bloc ACUM backed by the West. As political analysts predict, the ruling Democratic Party of oligarch Vlad Plahotniuc also has chances for substantial presence in the new parliament.

According to the surveys, Moldova's ruling regime due to its roaring corruption and democratic degeneration is equally unwanted by the Moldovans, West and Russia. It would appear that regime is doomed. But Moldovan politics have some distinctive features and the Şor party is among them, and the party is also Plahotniuc's new hope to repeat the effect the Our Party achieved during the 2014 parliament election shortly before it was suspended from it.

Ilan Şor, the leader of Şor party, is an affluent businessman with wide connections in Russia and Israel. In Russia he banned from entering the country for a few years because of the losses his illicit financial operations caused to the Russian banks. In 2017 the Chisinau Court sentenced him to 7.5 years (public prosecutor demanded 19 years) in prison for wheeler-dealer finance including the bank fraud scandal of $1 billion (which is equivalent to 12% of republic's GDP) disappearance ahead of parliament elections in 2014. At the time of fraud all involved banks were connected to Şor. As the result of his actions Moldova's budget took significant financial blow.

At present Şor successfully escapes his punishment because his defense protracting the process by not giving notice of appeal as they planned. Apart from that in 2015 Şor was elected as Major of Orhei and lives a stirring political life - his party's rating is close to a 6% barrier. It stands to mention the ambiguity of Moldova's legislative system that allows convicts to avoid punishment and the same time to participate in the elections and holding political posts.

The truth of the matter is that Şor is a typical oligarch without political views and ideological beliefs who is forced to be friends with Plahotniuc and be politically active to avoid the real legal prosecution. Will the Moldovan voters get into the true motives of Şor and his party? The issue remains open.

Which candidate would you consider to be the CIA candidate backed by the West? Since the Russians want to put Sor in jail, I presume he is the West's candidate, or not?

The CIA has Moldovan citizens working for them?

Who knew?

Guaido in Venezuela and probably Guido in Moldova.

What do you think the CIA does for a living?

The CIA places AGENTS in State Dept. posts to get them in the Naitons they intend to screw with. Not only do they not ask you, they don't tell you. Covert don't ya' know? No, you don't!

Maybe Russia will soon be proclaiming an opposition leader as the legitimate president, demanding the elected president steps down, impose sanctions, and otherwise threaten military intervention.


Just imagine the moral opprobrium that you would spew forth.

Why do that when they can invade a la Ukraine?

Think! Venezuela has an Instant President by declaration and he has prior approval by the USA, but nobody suggest there has been any covert activity. Only a MORON would believe that and be sucked in by the USA Goebbelian narrative. Made in the USA/CIA. Check your connedtion with the Pentagon. Pete is calling you. They faked WMDs enough that a million Iraqis are dead, and 4 million were made refugees and the MIC profit stream was voluminous. Must make you proud, eh?..-. ..-\/

Poor DaveFagan... A CIA agent under his bed. A CIA agent behind every curtain. CIA here, CIA there, CIA everywhere....

In DaveFaganland people cannot rise up against a corrupt government without CIA money and CIA cookies. No one wants to cast off a failed socialist government without CIA prodding.

No one "faked" WMDs or GWB would have been lauded instead of blasted for invading Iraq.

Where do you get your "history" from?

The CIA said Saddam had WMDs. They foisted that lie upon you and the American people. The lie led to the War. That is fake WMDs. Try holding your head in a bucket of icewater for about 3 minutes. Wait for Pete's call.

Yet they couldn't fake a few in Iraq to make the administration and themselves look good.

The all knowing, omnipresent and omnipotent CIA couldn't do that.

YOUR paranoid imagination about the CIA causes you to project upon them powers they don't have....

Like most CT addled folks.

They needed to fake the WMDs to start the War. After that they didn't need them.. International investigators had proven before the War that Saddam had no WMDs. The CIA Goebbelian narrative was created by PETE of the pete and repeat that echoes in your cerebellum.

Check with Pete. From your own experience you can't hide idiocy forever. So flaunt it, as they say. Trust Pete to massage your veneer. That'd be the fake WMD Pete.

Now you have the Administration and the CIA intentionally looking like idiots.

Oh, the mind of a Conspiracy Theory addict... It is fascinating to see the ways it will try to stretch reality to fit its fantasy....

Logic and facts need not apply.

They stand in their own light. If it looks like idiots, perhaps it is.
Lied about WMD to initiate a war that killed a million and created 4 million refugees. Must make you proud.
