Below are a couple of news reports on the 20th anniversary of this epochal historical event in Russia that ushered in a new era of false peace between East and West that will eventually come to an Apocalyptic End:
Note the massive red-blue-and-white Russian flag in these reports that is draped across the news scene so the world can see the story being told, i.e., Soviet leaders were returning to the 'Russian roots' of their empire.
This is noteworthy in that, if the coup was a spontaneous event, how did Boris Yeltsin and the purported coup opposition have a chance to fashion such a massive Russian flag in anticipation of the crisis so they could more effectively present to the world their historical significance? Such massive props likely only avail themselves in such circumstances if the stage had been planned beforehand. (I could understand a colossal Soviet flag being on-hand, but at the time of the coup the idea of the reemergence of Russia in place of the Soviet Union was radically out-of-place, accept for maybe long-term Kremlin strategists. Hence, why in the hell was a block-long Russian flag lying-in-wait to be used as a propaganda device?!)
I guess a key question now is, was this part of a "20-year plan" implemented by the Communist East toward an all-out war with the Capitalist West? If so, time might be up.

"Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep." - Mikhail Gorbachev, November 1987
"War to the hilt between communism and capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in thirty or fifty years. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The Western world will need to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There shall be electrifying overtures and unheard of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate to their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist." - Dmitrii Z. Manuilskii, Lenin School of Political Warfare, Moscow, 1931
