What was the reason for the crowds of refugees from the Middle East to rush to Germany?
What triggered the Volkswagen scandals? Why is it, that news of German cars polluting the environment in the US became public knowledge immediately after a ‘Normandy 4’ meeting took place in Paris, with both Germany and France pressing Kiev to promptly move forward with the peace process?
Shinzō Abe, the Japanese Prime Minister announces his intent to resume dialogue with Russia, invites Vladimir Putin to visit and suddenly, we are informed that Islamic State militants are using new Toyotas. Meaning what, that Japan is delivering cars to terrorists?
Why does the US bomb Syria and not fight the Islamic State, all the while declaring it a major threat to humanity?
Why did the US kill Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi if there were no gains or tangible benefits to be had?
What was the real motivation in bombing Yugoslavia? Who is it the US actually wants to weaken? Russia, or its “allies” in Europe?
This much can be stated straight away – there is no “conspiracy” and a “conspiracy theory” doesn’t exist as a theory. What does exist is a machinery accusing one of promoting them in order to silence any voices of reason, essentially turning us all into imbeciles willing to deny the existence of anything we cannot outright see or touch with our hands. In essence, an attempt to relegate culturally and politically developed nations to a primitive state with no knowledge of science, politics, governance, or even medicine.
At the same time, lying is a widely used instrument in politics and diplomacy. The American political class believes that it knows the exact measure of lying needed over a given period of time. The lies must be super intensive and must be kept alive as long as needed to hide the agenda behind them. Once the desired result is achieved, there is no more need for any excuses: there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So what? We knew that – and now what? Too late to be waving fists now after the battle in Iraq is long over. Well then, good riddance.
The point however, lies not only in the “logic of the lie” and the techniques of its application through propaganda and politicians themselves. The entire twentieth century was marked by the ever more important roles of supra-national political structures – political clubs, parties, classes, and oligarchies of international monopolies. Countries have increasingly become instruments in the hands of these groups and structures, political elites not bound to and not limited by governments or presidential succession, not accountable to any democratic institutions.
Regardless of who occupies the office of the President of the United States, the Congress or the Senate, or the personalities amongst the officials of the State Department and intelligence agencies, the political strategy of the US remains unchanged and consistent. It is no secret and thus, referring to it as any sort of conspiracy is out of the question.
In their own circles, the political elites and domestic institutions of the US are extremely forthcoming. One book that lays out all the reasons behind the actions of the US on the international stage in very accurate detail, nuances included, is not an analysis but rather a blueprint published in 1997 (in Russian 1999). I am referring to “The Grand Chessboard” by Zbigniew Brzezinski.
The main objective of the US is clearly defined within it. Namely, the pursuit of a new form of world hegemony and includes the methods to be used to achieve it: by gaining control of Eurasia, the key to which is to pull Ukraine away from the Russian sphere of influence, bringing it into the geographical fold of Europe.
In no uncertain terms, this scant publication represents a real time plan of action, which we have witnessed being implemented over the years. A political instrument of the plan – the so-called Trilateral Commission – was founded by the same aforementioned Brzezinski and David Rockefeller in 1973. US policy is not limited to “protecting interests” or “responding to challenges,” it is a thoroughly designed, all encompassing political project.
The strategy of the US in the 20th century radically transformed from a doctrine of isolationism towards internationalist control of European affairs. This took place by means of the all-out war between European countries, in which the United States played a limited and isolated role. At the expense of this war, they built upon the situation and have strived to keep the conflict going since that time – first in the form of the Cold War with the Soviet Union and now through an artificially induced confrontation with Russia. Not limiting itself to that, conflicts must now be spread across the continent.
In Syria however, this tactic has encountered a serious setback in the form of an effective intervention by Russia – both militarily and politically. A formidable obstacle to the continuation of the United States’ strategy has also developed in Ukraine.
In fact, at present the United States has almost completely exhausted much of its energy on this project of revamping US hegemony, within the circumstances that unfolded after the dissolution of the USSR.
All that they conceived, was implemented; but control over Eurasia was not achieved. On the contrary, the ensuing processes pushed Russia into the field of Eurasian political planning, where it is able to offer a system of collective security on the continent from a Eurasian geopolitical and geo-economic standpoint, replacing the outdated “European only” NATO and ridding the US of its hegemony, in principle from Lisbon to Vladivostok, as many Europeans already desire.
