Decembrie ’89: munitie si arme de provenienta straina

Posted by romanianrevolutionofdecember1989 on December 4, 2010

Ioanesi Adrian ( 548 )
Profesie: Soldat in termen la UM 01027 Piatra-Neamt, sublocotenent post-mortem
Data nasteri: 24.09.1969
Locul nasterii: Vaslui
Calitate: Erou Martir
Data mortii: 24 decembrie 1989
Locul mortii: Maracineni, Buzau
Cauza: Impuscat in inima si cap

“In jurul orei 02,30 a fost impuscat, din spate, de 2 gloante de provenienta straina–unul in cap si unul in omoplatul sting.  Se presupune ca s-a tras cu arme de constructie speciala, foarte eficiente si pe timp de noapte.” Armata Poporului, p. 3, nr. 41 (44) Octombrie 1990

Pentru mine cazul de mai sus e elocvent:  unii spun ca cazurile in care este notat ca cineva a cazut din cauza gloantelor vidia/speciale/dum-dum/explozive/atipice sunt putine.  Deci se presupune ca daca nu este precizat, era vorba de gloante tipice de calibru 7,62 MM ale Armatei.  Dar cazul de mai sus ne indica ca daca nu este precizat felul de gloante, intre-adevar nu stim, si deci se poate ca numarul celor impuscate cu aceste gloantelor speciale sunt mai mare.  Deci in cele mai multe cazuri nu stim cu ce fel de gloante au fost impuscati celor cazuti tragic in decembrie 1989.  (Oricum pentru existenta teroristilor, numarul nu prea conteaza:  faptul este ca existenta–filmata–a gloantelor neobisnuite, care n-au fost in dotarea Armatei–existenta victimelor impuscate cu astfel de gloante–confirmata de chirurgi, medici, ofiteri din Armatei, si civili– demonstreaza existenta teroristilor, si deci teama reala a soldatilor si civililor atunci–rezultat a fost previzibil, soldati in termen prost instruiti si civili au tras in airuea cu sute de 1000 de gloante, si multi soldati si civili au murit ca o consecinta…chiar daca cum au spus atunci la televizor teroristii erau “putini la numar” dar inraiti si trageau “din orice pozitie”)

Cazul Maracineni

Another small group of people wearing “black jumpsuits” held a military convoy under fire near the city of Buzau. On the evening of 23 December 1989, a military convoy from Piatra Neamt en route to Bucharest reached the community of Maracineni near Buzau.  Members of the local military unit told the soldiers from Piatra Neamt that

…the unit had been attacked by two people, a civilian and Militia NCO, who disappeared with an Oltcit [car] and an ABI vehicle [an armored transport used exclusively by the Securitate’s USLA].  Shortly after [being told] this, gunfire opened on the convoy.  And gunfire reopened on the local military unit….those from the unit fired back with ordinance that lit the sky, in this way enabling them to observe a group of 3-4 armed people, wearing black jumpsuits (“salopete negre”) who were shooting while constantly changing position.  At the same time, on the radio frequencies of the convoy, they received messages about coming devastating attacks, and even Soviet intervention.  All of these proved to be simple disinformation.  The next day, in a moment of calm, villagers brought the soldiers food, and related how the terrorists had occupied attics of their houses.  They said they [the occupiers] were Romanians and that in a few words they had ordered [the villagers] to let them into the attics of their houses….In general, they shot at night, but on 25 December the cannonade continued during the day…. Curiously, the ‘fighting’ in Maracineni continued until 30 December.  Who and for whom were they trying to impress? [emphasis added][55]

Indeed, there are three key aspects here:  1) this was not a heavily populated area, thereby undermining arguments about “operetta-like” fake warfare to impress the population, 2) it is difficult to explain this episode as the result of “misunderstandings” between units, and 3) the gunfire lasted well over a week, a fact that is difficult to ascribe to confusion.
