“Russia and the United States Are Doomed to Remain Potential Adversaries”: “For When They Shall Say, Peace and Safety; Then Sudden Destruction Cometh upon Them”?
Summary: After the Georgian War in 2008, it became clear that Russia had drawn a line in the sand, which the U.S.attempting to make Georgia and Ukraine NATO members could not exceed without a major war. The U.S. Council on Foreign Relations is not satisfied with U.S. efforts in Central Asia, where it wants more individualised approaches to the countries who still feel unsafe pieces on Zbigniew Brzezinski's "Grand Chessboard" - and actually the U.S. and Russia cooperated on the Kyrgyzstan crisis. Russia has developed a capitalist version of the KGB - a stinking rich flock of rulers in the state: the Federal Security Service (FSB), headed by Putin's old KGB comrades who acc. to courageous Russian journalists saying, despite the murder of many of their critical colleagues, that FSB agents in contrast to the KGB are not subject to political control and therefore do what they like. The former Polish Prime Minister Kaczynsky, warns the EU against Russia's "neo-imperialist" foreign policy. Dr. Alexei Fenenko, a senior Russian researcher, points out that Russia is the only country that is able to technically destroy the U.S. - and that cooperation is being strained in that the U.S. now wants to disarm all countries that are hostile to the U.S. This does not suit Russia, which sees it as dangerous. Fenenko says that "Russia and the U.S.are doomed to remain potential enemies." The relationship was further strained by U.S. interceptor missils being established in Poland in May, just a few kilometers from the Russian border. NATO Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, would like to appease the Russians and have them join the UN army, NATO, so the big powers can work together to subdue the rebellious peoples who will not capitulate to the corporate New World Order. Therefore Medwedew has been invited to the next NATO summit. Sakashvili of Georgia says that Russia is now demanding its former influence in its backyard back. Some suggest that this backyard now includes Iran and Syria - which can lead to a great conflict in the Middle East, where the U.S. and Israel have other plans. Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research, sees the US-Russia relationship like Fenenko: "The planned attack on Iran is part of a coordinated global military road map. The deployment of coalition troops and advanced weapons systems by the US, NATO and its partners is occurring in all major regions of the World. Directed primarily against Russia and China, US, NATO and allied military exercises, war drills, weapons deployments, etc. are being conducted simultaneously in major geopolitical hotspots. The launch of a US sponsored military operation would normally occur once weapons systems are in place, effectively deployed with the implementation of personnel training.
What we are dealing with is a carefully coordinated global military design controlled by the Pentagon, involving the combined armed forces of more than forty countries. In total, there are 255,065 US military personnel deployed Worldwide. The strategy is clear. Surround Russia and China with mobile "missile defense" systems whose job is to take out their retaliatory capability after a U.S. first-strike against their nuclear weapons." Daniel Estulin has information that the U.S. is building 13 military bases for the endgame with Russia - acc. to Obama mentor Brzezinski´s plan. The Illuminist guru, Albert Pike, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and former U.S. Secretary of State, Collin Powell, have predicted this endgame.
Apparently, the cold war is finally over after some ups and downs in the US-Russian relationship. The US is seen as the world´s only superpower – and Russia as compliant to US global military and economic policies, as long as the US does not intrude too aggressively into Russia´s backyard. And there is a joker in this game: Neither Pres. Obama nor the Russian leaders make far reaching decisions of their own. Obama is the puppet of the corporate, financial forces organized i.a. in the Council on Foreign Relations and and here, the Trilateral Commission and and here as well as the Bilderbergers, while I have a strong suspicion that Medvedev and Putin are the puppets of another illuminist wing, this leaving dangerous opportunities for the usual Hegelian dialectic tactics.
Is Russia now a harmless democracy?
The Guardian 25 Sept. 2010: Russian journalists, Soldatov and Borogan properly and meticulously document their reporting. They write: "Once elected president, Putin´s old pals from the KGB (especially those from his home base) were given the keys to the Kremlin and just about every other important building in Moscow. Soldatov and Borogan give the creepy details as to how they chipped away the recently won media and other freedoms.
In the Soviet Union, the KGB was clearly subordinated to the Communist party, i.e. there existed some oversight of the KGB and its activities. Now the Federal Security Service (FSB) leadership so influences policy that nobody is overseeing its activity. It is effectively free to act as it feels fit; it does so. The FSB controls all the key political offices of state except Medvedev. The leading members of the security state are gutting its resources with the determination of the best oligarchs. The Kremlin boys are stinking rich."
EUObserver 30 Sept. 2010: Former Polish prime minister, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, has warned of Russia's "neo-imperial" foreign policy to all 738 MEPs in Brussels and to dozens of ambassadors, accusing Russia of "systematically" trying to "re-acquire its sphere of interest".
Foreign Affairs 7 Sept. 2010 (Magazine of the US Council on Foreign Relations): Russian foreign policy has begun to swing back toward cooperation with the West. The public face of this new course is Dmitry Medvedev
Russia and the United States signed the so-called New START nuclear arms reduction treaty, cooperated on sanctions against Iran (always a sensitive subject in Moscow), and agreed to open new supply routes for the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. In June, Medvedev traveled to Silicon Valley to drum up investment for a high-tech center the Kremlin is building outside of Moscow.
Russia is the only country that is technically capable of annihilating the United States. Russia and the United States are doomed to remain potential adversaries: Dr. Alexei Fenenko, a leading researcher at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute for International Security. Global Res. 12 oct. 2010: We have a set of precedents that add up to a system of forced disarmament of countries that are hostile to the United States. This does not suit Russia as a nuclear power with independent military capabilities, and could even be dangerous for it. This is why we reject any radical revisions to the NPT.
What we need now is a fundamental agreement limiting the number of interceptor missiles and their deployment areas. The Americans made it clear at the Washington summit that they would not agree to it in the next few years, which is why the reset policy is running into problems.
This is NATO´s answer
Independent 25 May 2010: A battery of Patriot missiles has arrived in Poland, along with dozens of American soldiers to operate the advanced guided-missile system at a base just a few miles from the Russian border. Though Russia had expressed its strong opposition to having a US military installation close to its border, there was no initial reaction from Moscow to the arrival of the missiles.
Foreign Affairs 20 Aug. 2010: As Kyrgyzstan descended into chaos after President Kurmanbek Bakiyev was ousted in April 2010 Russia and the United States actually worked together, pursuing back-channel talks. For the first time in over a decade, what Russia calls its "near abroad" was a locus of cooperation, not confrontation, between Russia and the United States. U.S. policymakers must develop new individualized approaches to the states of the greater Black Sea region and Central Asia.
Russia declined Kyrgystan´s request for help in recent riots between Kyrgys and Usbeks
The Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline was considered by many in Washington a crucial factor in building true sovereignty, independence and revenues. The U.S. military embarked on bilateral defense cooperation with most of the states of the region.
By the end of the 1990s, this independence-minded strategy had largely succeeded. The independence of Russia's neighbors had been firmly established. At the same time, however, then Russian President Vladimir Putin began to assert Moscow's influence throughout the region in ways that set off alarm bells in the West. Likewise, "color" revolutions angered the Kremlin. As a result, competition between Washington and Moscow quickly spun out of control.
Washington pushed for accelerated NATO membership for Georgia and Ukraine. The August 2008 war between Russia and Georgia, which Moscow saw as a U.S. proxy state, was the climax.
Playing the game also distorted the United States' priorities in Eurasia and hollowed out U.S. relationships with states in the region. Instead of forging long-term partnerships, the United States simply sought leverage. The U.S. government gave all the region's leaders a trump card in their dealings with Washington: the threat of "turning to Moscow." Eurasia's elites still view their countries as pawns on a grand chessboard and that their countries' future will inevitably be decided within that framework.
Everything breathing peace?
Time 23 April 2010: Saakashvili says Russia is asking the U.S. to give back the Soviet sphere of influence". In practical terms, this seems to require three things of the United States and its European allies: do not push for any more ex-Soviet countries to join NATO; do not openly support any opposition movements that seek to oust pro-Russian governments; and more generally, make sure to consult Moscow before going ahead with any big initiatives in Russia's backyard. Obama has been far more obliging than Bush.
In a statement on April 14, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen urged NATO countries to integrate Russia into their security strategy instead of seeing Russia as a potential threat. Now under Obama The US has instead embraced Russia as a partner for global security e.g by reducing the world's two biggest nuclear arsenals by a third.
So what is the reality of the Big Game?
Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research 1 Aug. 2010: “The planned attack on Iran is part of a coordinated global military road map. It is part of the Pentagon's "long war", a profit driven project of World domination. A global military agenda has been formulated. The deployment of coalition troops and advanced weapons systems by the US, NATO and its partners is occurring simultaneously in all major regions of the World. Directed primarily against Russia and China, US, NATO and allied military exercises, war drills, weapons deployments, etc. are being conducted simultaneously in major geopolitical hotspots. The launch of a US sponsored military operation would normally occur once weapons systems are in place, effectively deployed with the implementation of personnel training.
What we are dealing with is a carefully coordinated global military design controlled by the Pentagon, involving the combined armed forces of more than forty countries. This global multinational military deployment is by far the largest display of advanced weapons systems in World history. In total, there are 255,065 US military personnel deployed Worldwide.”
Global Research 5 Febr. 2010: The strategy is clear. Surround Russia and China with mobile "missile defense" systems whose job is to take out their retaliatory capability after a U.S. first-strike against their nuclear weapons.
Russia Today interviewing Daniel Estulin, who maintains the US is building 13 bases for the endgame war against Russia
So, in summary one can say that the Obama administration in itself has an accomodating policy towards Russia, which has backyard interests but has not gained affection from her former vassals in the Soviet Union. The question now is where Russia´s backyard ends. Does it not extend beyond the former Soviet republics, which have lost US interests – except for military bases? In that case the world has little to fear – apart from Zbigniew Brzeinski, Obama´s mentor, and his “Grand Chessboard” strategy to encircle and defeat Russia! Or does Russia´s backyard now extend beyond Iran and Syria? In that case there is imminent danger of a really big war – considering the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergers want the West to attack Iran – and a war betweeen Israel and Syria is also looming.
The future relationship between the US and Russia will depend on the next Russian president. Much indicates that his name will be the strongly nationalistic KGB-officer, Vladimir Putin: Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin’s ruling party triumphed easily in regional elections here in Siberia and elsewhere in Russia. The elections were seen as a test of the strength of Mr. Putin’s political movement in advance of parliamentary and presidential elections over the next 18 months. Mr. Putin has not said whether he will run for president again but has indicated that he is seriously considering it. If he is not a candidate, his protégé, President Dmitri A. Medvedev, is expected to seek another term. The National Post 16 Oct. 2010: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev named Deputy Prime Minister, Sergei Sobyanina, a close aide of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to run Moscow. This will further strengthen Mr. Putin's grip on power ahead of a 2012 presidential election.
In conclusion, in the words of Dr. Alexei Fenenko, Russia and the United States are doomed to remain potential adversaries. Many attempts may be made to make them partners in the New World Order - but sooner or later their interests will clash, for both want to dominate the New World Order, which has 2 faces: The thesis of Capitalism and the antithesis of Communism - awaiting the final synthesis: The world state and government. In this context it is indifferent if the name of the opponents of the more and more Communist western world are Putin/Medwedew or have other names like Lenin/Gorbachev.
Hopefully, the Albert Pike scenario will not come true – although US Vicepresident, Joe Biden, and his Illuminati colleague, Collin Powell, indicated this – and although the US elite are building gigantic bunkers for such an event in 2012.
