The visit of John Kerry looks like an attempt to tune down the conflict with Russia. The US is ready to admit the failure of the policy of “isolating Russia” and is looking for ways to back down. Without relinquishing the goal of containment of Russia, it wants to make it less obvious, as it was before, counting in return on Moscow cooperation on key geopolitical issues.
US Secretary of State Kerry occupies fifth place in the official American power hierarchy – that is, he is fourth in line to take the place in the White House should anything happen to the President (after the Vise-President and Speakers of House and Senate). However, in the real power hierarchy 71 years-old John Kerry, former Presidential candidate, who belongs on his mother’s side to the one of the most influential American oligarchic families Forbes (he is also married to the billions of ketchup “Heinz”), is positioned even higher.
Kerry – he is that hereditary Anglo-Saxon elite that governs the USA (it is not by accident that he is related to another dynasty – Bushes). His pale counterpart in the current administration is Vise-President Biden. In the administration of inherently weak president Obama the foreign policy was the prerogative of experienced and qualified people – Biden, Hillary Clinton, Kerry. Biden and Kerry worked together for a long time in the Committee on Foreign Relations in the Senate (both were Heads of that committee), and Clinton, although she was less versed in the world affairs, spent eight years in the White House and worked as long in the Senate commission for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
Of course, if Obama unexpectedly had turned out to be a strong President (although he was not elected for that) with his own geopolitical if not strategy but, at least, tactics, then his impact of the US foreign policy would have been decisive. But as things stand, he has become the first among equals, dependent on his more experienced associates.
This situation revealed itself quite clearly in the relationships with Russia. First, Clinton and Biden were directing the game. The former distinguished herself by the Freudian error with “peregruzka”, and the latter – by the clearly stupid attempt to interfere openly into the internal affairs of Russia trying to split the Russian elites and betting on the Medvedev’s re-election. As a result, by the beginning of the Obama’s second term in 2013 our countries found themselves on the brink of a cold war.
After Kerry had become the Secretary of State, he only had time to visit Moscow and talk to Putin once – in May of 2013, after which the events began to unfold at kaleidoscopic speed: the flight of Snowden and asylum granted to him by Russia, the US gamble in Syria (where Obama nevertheless put his foot down stopping the invasion – mostly thanks to the firm position of Putin), the turning of Yanukovich away from Eurointegration.
By early 2014, the confrontation of the US and Russia over Ukraine seemed to have reached the highest level, but that was just the beginning. After the mission of the three European foreign ministers in Kiev, Obama asked Putin to persuade Yanukovich to make a deal with the opposition. Putin agreed, but the very next day, after the coup, the Americans forgot about the agreement.
The relationship between the leaders of the two countries essentially collapsed. Putin lost trust in Obama, and the subsequent events in Crimea demonstrated that Russia was not prepared to silently watch the US/NATO swallowing Ukraine. Furthermore, Russia challenged the whole concept of the American-style world order, switching from defense to the coordination of efforts of all countries and forces desirous of changing the rules of the global game, from China to Latin America. An attempt to name Russia as an aggressor and organize its isolation was a natural reaction for the US – those that rise against the right of America to determine what is right and what is wrong should be severely punished.
Was it understood in Washington in spring of 2014 that the isolation of Russia would not succeed? No, and it took Washington a year to realize that.
Kerry’s visit symbolizes an admission of that very fact – we could not do anything with you, however hard we tried. Let us somehow reach an agreement that we would not go for a global confrontation on all issues but, rather, set the Ukraine problem aside and try to find common ground with regard to other problems. Brazen? Undoubtedly, but the elite of the nation that considers itself indispensable and in charge of the global mission is unable to think or act otherwise. We will strangle you with one hand, but let us use the other hand for cooperation – this is the expression, I believe, Putin used last year to describe the American attitude. What changed after the visit of the Secretary of State?
Kerry came to make the Russian President understand – we are ready to pretend that we are not strangling you and even lessen the grip a bit, but in return we want to talk about Syria, Iran, caliphate, North Korea, and other things important to us. And about Ukraine, of course – give us the guarantees that you would not annex it, and we will forget about Crimea and promise not to admit Ukraine to NATO.
Obviously, Kerry did not say any of this in so many words, but it was important for him to understand whether Russia is serious about its struggle against the American global hegemony (from finances to ideology, from China to Middle East) or it is simply bluffing in order to scare the US and gain concessions on Ukraine, forcing the US to back off from it. This is an example of the typical American logic, but that is how the US views the international relationships: the weak Russia cannot be so bold.
You are weak, you lost the Cold War, you do understand, do you not, that we will never allow you to reintegrate the post-Soviet space – where do you think you are pushing in with your Russian world, Eurasian union and anti-globalist ambitions? Kerry as well as Clinton and Obama held precisely such view of Russia a year ago, and this year has not made them change their minds. But it forced them to start thinking, at least – the events were indeed developing in a rather unfortunate way.
During the year of “isolation” of Russia, the political position of the US failed to improve – instead, it keeps worsening for both objective and subjective, i.e. attack at Russia, reasons.
First, the situation in the Middle East is becoming more and more difficult and anti-American. Through its actions, the US unintentionally has created chaos and is unable to extricate itself from it or solve the numerous problems. The growth of the caliphate, strained relations with almost all allies in the region, a boiling mess in Afghanistan, the Iranian labyrinth. Russia is supporting Syria, establishing closer relations with Iran and Egypt, approaching Pakistan, and looking closely at Afghanistan.
Second, forcing Europe to keep the anti-Russia sanctions in place allowed, on the one hand, to rein in the Old World elites, but on the other hand – increased the anti-American sentiments on the continent, so that it will not be possible to keep the cross-Atlantic solidarity for much longer. Soon, the discussion about the extension of the sanctions is to take place that has a chance of splitting the EU – Europe openly wishes the confrontation with Russia to end. The breakdown of the unified European front would be a severe blow to the US reputation; that is why, in anticipation of possible loosening of the sanctions, Washington is in a hurry to proclaim this, via Kerry’s visit, as its own initiative (naturally, such action would be presents as: “the sanctions have achieved their effect forcing Russia to refrain from escalating the war in Ukraine”).
Third, the relations between Russia and China are expanding so fast that it causes serious anxiety among Ango-Saxon strategists. Washington is losing to Beijing the competition for the Pacific region, and the tandem of Putin and Xi could not only mean the establishment of the Russia-China alliance, but could also become the platform for building the ram that will destroy the very foundation of the Ango-Saxon power – the world financial system based on the dollar as the global reserve currency. The US still has the strength to block the reform of the IMF but this only increases the risk of finding out later on that nobody is interested in such a reform anymore, since a parallel global financial architecture has already been formed.
As a special bonus of this year of Russia’s “isolation”, the whole world (including even Western anti-Atlantists) came to view Putin as the symbol of resistance to the American dominance. This perception first emerged at the time of the Snowden story but has solidified after the sanctions and blockade. Such perception, by the way, plays a significant psychological role in the geopolitical struggle – the presence of such a symbol opens up novel venues in the fight against the hegemony.
Kerry came to try to gauge the strategic goals of Putin. Not just in Ukraine (will or will not annex) but in general, the global far-reaching aims. And to evaluate whether there are symptoms that this “mysterious Russian” in his heart of hearts has no problem with globalization, but simply wants to secure a position for himself in the club of those ruling the “golden billion” and for his country – a dignified place among Western countries. And whether the Russia’s turn towards the East is just a smokescreen for the West in order to raise the stakes.
I do not know what Kerry saw in Putin’s eyes (he, unlike Hillary Clinton, has never said that “the KGB agent has no soul”) but something tells me that the lieutenant colonel behaved in a way to make the best possible impression on the Yale graduate. So that later Kerry together with Biden and Obama (and with Hillary – she might be taking over, after all) would try to solve the non-existing for the Russians “Putin enigma” puzzling over it and wasting time (working against the USA) in search of options: what could we offer in exchange, what could we do to reach a deal with the Russians about “local cooperation” and at the same time keep Ukraine for ourselves?
The idea that this is impossible in principle, that Putin will not give up his goal of reforming the unipolar world even after Ukraine has returned to the Russia’s orbit would never ever enter their minds. Their very Anglo-Saxon minds.
meanwhile the latvians preaching to the nazi mentality
I knew a Latvian at school. A natural Nazi. We allowed thousands of Baltic, Croat and Ukrainian Nazis to find refuge here after WW2. They were the back-bone of the hard Right in our political Parties and paraded as ‘Captive Nations’. It’s a cultural thing. Not all Balts, Croats and Ukrainians are fascists of course, just very many.
That stinks of Plutser Sarno and Voina, Pussy Riot. Echos of Purim (Putin has been declared being Haman. Haman is “hung in effigy on a tree”. Christ is hung “on a tree”). It is an intended blasphemy in the style of Charlie Hebdo and Voina, which points to the perpetrators.
Saddam Hussein was declared ‘the Haman of the Age’ by certain Rabbis, then his country destroyed in an aggression launched on Purim, 2003. And like in the original Purim, when 75,000 of Haman’s ‘followers’ including women and children were slaughtered by the Jews, over one million Iraqis have since been killed. And as Satanyahu made plain in his most recent address to his slaves in the US Congress, he would love nothing more than launching a second Purim, with himself, no doubt, as Mordechai, against Iran.
You know that the “papa” of Bibi was Benzion Netanyahu, born Benzion Mileikowsky, March 25, 1910 – April 30, 2012), was an activist in the Revisionist Zionism movement, who lobbied in the United States to support the creation of the Jewish state”, and the personal secretary of Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinski and a close friend to Abba Ahimeir (aka Abba Shaul Geisinovich), who in 1930 established the underground movement Brit HaBirionim (The Union of Zionist Rebels) named for the Jewish anti-Roman underground during the first Jewish-Roman War.
Brit HaBirionim was the first Jewish organization to call the British authorities in Palestine a “foreign regime” and refer to the British Mandate over Palestine as “an occupation.”
For me, this Kerry’s visit to Sochi is just next proof of total insanity of US’s regime’s top figures. It’s like Rudolf Hess’ flight to Scotland in 1941 (what a pity, Kerry wasn’t arrested there for his crimes against Russia and humanity…) There is nothing USA could (REALLY!) offer to Russia and there is no possible Russian step back. Virtually no common field even for starting of some negotiations.
Russian/US negotiations on Ukraine: There was nothing to negotiate—Putin is in position of power and he is a man of principle. Kerry’s glazed over eyes are just beginning to see the former but his soul that he has sold to the forces of darkness will never grasp the latter. I think everyone is getting way too lyrical about this Sochi meeting with Kerry—he was sent to see if “the Ruskies will deal” but was told “homie don’t play those games.” it was worth a try. For an opportunist in a society where everything is for sale, it is always worth a try.
Kerry looked foolish and ineffectual—Lavrov looked down on him benignly both literally and figuratively–by handing him back organic, non GMO, home grown Russia produce. It is called tit for tat. And then he sent him home figuratively empty handed–yeah, yeah go home sonny boy! And what were Putin and Lavrov really in Sochi for? A yearly meeting to assess and upgrade the Russian military. As political theater, the Sochi meeting with Kerry was pure comic relief.
The US has made war a fact everywhere it can. Next stop—South China Seas. It chose this because it can use Philippines and Australia, and scare the hell out of the ASEAN nations working diplomatically to defuse the situation with China’s claims of territory.
Interesting that it also will help Taiwan get submarines by transferring “other” nations’ blueprints to engineer Taiwan-built subs. That should destabilize the Cross Straits situation.
Already, extending nuclear protection for a marauding Japanese military that is being unleashed in the East China Sea and Yellow Sea (which also confronts Russia in the Far East, Sea of Japan and Arctic).
The Peace Loving US can’t get enough war and chaos. It just goes on and on everywhere with threats, death and destruction.
Putin and Xi alone stand in their way.
Russia US negotiations on the Ukraine: This is a reaction from Paul Craig Roberts to the Sochi meeting:
The Western model of “democratic capitalism” turns out to be neither democratic nor capitalist, but a form of fascism ruled by an oligarchy. The United States is where regime change is most badly needed.
And where is the difference to the Russian (or Chinese) model??
They are all the same.
The US claims to be what it is not. With the Russians and Chinese they make no such claims and have less desire to impose a lie on other nations.
I wonder what the case would be if they were as powerful as the Western Hegemon.
There is NO difference.
There is one significant difference between the two. Yes, both are lords and kings that rule over their respective nations and peoples – so it has always been and probably always will be, the myth of democracy notwithstanding. However, the western lords believe that they have absolute authority to do as they wish, and do not have to adhere to any moral standards – they believe that whatever they do to advance their interests and those of the Empire are by definition inherently right, and the definition of wrong is standing in the way of the Empire, much like the belief in the Divine right of Kings. Putin and Xi are more like traditional Emperors of their nations – they believe that divine right must be earned through proper adherence of traditional morality and service to their nations (Chines Mandate of Heaven, which could be rescinded from bad Emperors). Both are convinced of their Divine mandate to rule, but Putin and Xi believe such mandate must be earned through moral service, while western Emperors and Lords believe all it takes is winning a rigged election, and then they may do anything and everything.
During the first phase of the Cold War, The Outlaw Empire could never get 100% of Europe to back its containment policy since that policy in inimical to Europe’s interest. Nothing has changed; the Imperial dictat has failed for the same reason it did before. For an economically struggling EU, the Russia/China project has great appeal the Empire can never match–particularly its ideological basis of honest, equal dealings and ultimate goal to empower people, not corporations: “Therefore, an objective ally of the Russian-Chinese cooperation is all of mankind, all nations, to whom we must offer a new model of socio-economic, and even just personal development in contrast to the old model of their governments and global corporations,” http://fortruss.blogspot.com/2015/05/russian-chinese-new-world-order-part-4.html
I have two words for this article, well maybe more:
Excellent summary. The snake doesn’t even want to accept the fact that it’s eating itself. Maybe Yale education does not tech them logical thinking? Ah, right, they are exceptional.
Whenever studies come out on general civics knowledge in higher education in the US are done, the Ivy league schools fare the worst. They are taught neo con type theory and that is it. They are literally morons when it comes to knowing how the government works or is supposed to work, the Constitution, etc. This explains both their hubris and total insanity.
The average enrollment of Jews at Ivy League colleges is 20%, from 2% of the US population. When it was discovered that the figure at Princeton was a mere 13%, there was a mini-scandal with not so veiled accusations of ‘antisemitism'(TM). This situation was routinely ‘explained’ by the bashful assertion that Ashkenazi Jews are the cleverest people ever, but these days they no longer top entrance scores, that eminence going to east and south Asians. And the nepotism really goes into high gear after college, as one can see by examining the upper levels of the finance industry, the Federal Reserve, the US Treasury and one US Administration after another, with the Uncle Obama regime the most marked, so far. Ruling elites project their group values onto societies.
Perhaps some linguists can weigh in here? My Russian is rudimentary but I’ll give it a try:
‘грузка’ means ‘load’ and ‘перегрузка’ means overload. The US administration meant ‘reset’, however the Russian word for ‘reset’ which is ‘сброс’ doesn’t have quite the same connotation as it means ‘reset ‘ in the sense to throw away or discard.
I note also that the ‘Manifestly Destined Exceptionalists’ felt the need to use a transliterated “peregruzka” rather than the correct Cyrillic Russian alphabet. Yet another example of boorish western domination and lack of cultural understanding. Where was Nuland -she is has her dirty fingers in everything Russian and she is supposed to be fluent in the Russian language? Perhaps it was a deliberate insult?
I once grabbed a teaching book on Russian only to find out it was an American book and completely transliterated. As such it was barely intelligible, every word needing de-encryption essentially, and I took it back to the public library the next day.
Useless; the world would be a better, safer place without either that condescending book or the US administration, AKA The Hegemon.
“Why I Wept at the Russian Parade” By F. William Engdahl
I liked this part::
“To see the faces of thousands and thousands of ordinary Russians walking, optimism about their future beaming from their faces, young and the very old, including surviving veterans of the Great Patriotic War as it is known to Russians, moved this writer to quietly weep. What was conveyed in the smiles and eyes of the thousands of marchers was not a looking back in the sense of sorrow at the horrors of that war. Rather what came across so clearly was that the parade was a gesture of loving respect and gratitude to those who gave their lives that today’s Russia might be born, a new, future-looking Russia that is at the heart of building the only viable alternative to a one-world dictatorship under a Pentagon Full Spectrum Dominance and a dollar system choking on debt and fraud. The entire Russian nation exuded a feeling of being good and of being victorious. Few peoples have that in today’s world.
When the television cameras zoomed in on President Vladimir Putin who was also marching, he was walking freely and open amid the thousands of citizens, holding a picture of his deceased father who had served in the war and was severely wounded in 1942. Putin was surrounded not by bulletproof limousines that any US President since the assassination of Kennedy in 1963 would have, were he even to dare to get close to a crowd. There were three or four presidential security people near Putin, but there were thousands of ordinary Russians within arm’s length of one of the most influential world leaders of the present time. There was no climate of fear visible anywhere.
My tears at seeing the silent marchers and at seeing Putin amid them was an unconscious reaction to what, on reflection, I realized was my very personal sense of recognition how remote from anything comparable in my own country, the United States of America, such a memorial march in peace and serenity would be today. There were no “victory” marches after US troops destroyed Iraq; no victory marches after Afghanistan; no victory marches after Libya. Americans today have nothing other than wars of death and destruction to commemorate and veterans coming home with traumas and radiation poisonings that are ignored by their own government.
That transformation in America has come about in those same 7o years since the end of the war, a war when we–Americans and Russians, then the Soviet Union of course—had fought side-by-side to defeat Hitler and the Third Reich. Today the Government of the United States is siding with and backing neo-nazis in Ukraine to provoke Russia.”

My sister was in Moscow on Victory Day (lucky so-and-so!). She told me that the atmosphere was wonderful, benign, happy, relaxed. She thought that the contrast with Brighton, her home in the UK, which she fled after the Tory landslide (on 24% of the electorate’s votes!!)was marked, and let’s not even contemplate Baltimore, Albuquerque or Detroit. Putin and Xi can make a great advance by simply ensuring that their societies are fair, just and compassionate, because the West is careering towards social dispensations based on greed, internecine hatred, envy and social sadism directed at the poor and disempowered, whose ranks are growing like topsy.
“… There were no “victory” marches after US troops destroyed Iraq; no victory marches after Afghanistan; no victory marches after Libya. Americans today have nothing other than wars of death and destruction to commemorate and veterans coming home with traumas and radiation poisonings that are ignored by their own government. …”
True. Though there was one “victory parade” in the U.S. that preceded the above events, perhaps the last one:
In 1983 Ronald Reagan, a senile Hollywood actor in the assigned role of U.S. “commander in chief”, invaded the tiny Caribbean country of Grenada (population 91,000 (!)), on the laughable pretext of “fighting world communism”.
And I well remember the grand jubilant “Victory Parade” of flag-waivers that went down Manhattan immediately following that “victory”, televised across the entire “proud” country…
Ever since spectacularly losing the Vietnam War, the U.S. had been suffering one setback after another (the very latest being the death of 220 Marines in the Beirut barracks bombing a mere two days before, which spelled the end of U.S. presence in Lebanon). The mood in the country had been generally a defeatist one for already a while, the “common” American sheeple were noticeably humble, no “patriotic” chest-thumping one might have seen before (or after) that period: the fall of Saigon ( http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/95/Saigon-hubert-van-es.jpg ) seared a deep mark in the shallow “American psyche”. So, something “had to be done quickly” … and Grenada was the most cost-effective means to achieve that.
I well remember the US ‘heroes’ of Grenada, who managed to overcome a couple of dozen Cuban air-field workers (they handed out hundreds of medals for this act of ‘martial valour’)then sacked the Cuban Embassy, (against International Law, of course)writing their deep and ‘free’ thoughts on the walls in their own faeces. As for Beirut, I also recall the words of a US ‘guard’ who saw the truck-driver as he drove past the slack security, sitting at the wheel, grinning broadly.
But, could not they simply, (as long as there is time), join the BRICS, China in the silk road, and work in a trasformation, or interaction of IFM with BRICS bank? Why not to offer ‘equality” to the others, and ‘riabilitate’ themselves? To make mistakes is human, to persevere in them is diabolic!
Kerry is a jew of czech origin, His grand-grand-parents went first to Vienna (about 1900), converted to catholics and emigrated to the US.
He is a Cohen, the priestly caste. His brother Cameron married a Jewish woman and they live as Jews. Kerry/Cohen is possibly a crypto-Jew, like so many others over the centuries, like Kemal Ataturk and Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab et al.
Inevitably we came to this!
“Kerry’s Skeleton in the Closet May Be the Golem of Prague”, March 24, 2004
“When you run for U.S. president, you have to be prepared for opponents finding skeletons in your closet.
But in the case of Sen. John Kerry, the senator’s past may reveal not so much a skeleton but a Golem, the legendary Jewish man of clay.
Loew, who is buried in Prague’s old Jewish cemetery, is said to have created the Golem to protect Prague’s Jewish community from outside threats. The Golem, as legend has it, was a faithful servant until Loew was forced to drain the creature of its life force after it developed an ego and disobeyed its creator.
Kerry already is aware of his Jewish roots, having learned recently that his paternal grandfather was a German Jew born in 1873 in the north Moravian town of Horni Benesov who later emigrated to the United States. Further research established that the Massachusetts senator’s oldest known Czech Jewish ancestor is Bernhard Loew, born in 1771 in the south Moravian town of Boskovice.
But local historian Jaroslav Bransky has dug deeper into Bernhard Loew’s past — and says there is strong evidence to indicate that Kerry is related to Judah Loew’s brother, Sinai.
“Everything is showing that Kerry’s family is descended from Sinai,” said Bransky, who has written several books on the once thriving Jewish community in Boskovice.
Bransky believes that the family tree leads from Sinai, one of three older brothers of Rabbi Loew, to Josefina Loew, one of Kerry’s great-grandmothers.
Little is known about Sinai. History books have focused on his more famous brother who, even centuries after his death, draws large crowds to Prague’s Jewish Quarter.
Bransky reached his conclusion by using local archival material and epitaphs from gravestones at Boskovice’s Jewish cemetery, one of the largest in the country. But he says his search was hampered by the destruction of town records in an early-19th-century fire.
“I can’t precisely prove everything because there are some gaps in the chain,” Bransky said. “But I plan to continue on this research, and there are other genealogical sources which I have not examined yet.”
Tomas Kraus, executive director of the Czech Federation of Jewish Communities, welcomed Bransky’s research but said previous experience had shown that caution is required.
“There are people in Israel who claimed to have the full family tree of Rabbi Loew, but the tree showed that one of his descendants was killed at Stalingrad fighting as a German soldier,” Kraus said. “Loew’s family history is very complicated and at the moment we don’t have much more than speculation.”
Bransky says he is more interested in the Loew family than the Kerry connection.
“I don’t have any Jewish roots myself, but I have been interested in the topic of Jews in Boskovice since the 1960s because my father and I were both born in the Jewish Quarter of the town and I spent my childhood surrounded by Jewish friends.”
Town records show that Jews were living in Boskovice as early as the mid-15th century. The town’s Jewish cemetery officially dates back to the 17th century, although Bransky believes there was an earlier cemetery in the same place during the 15th century.
According to the Bohemia-Moravia Special Interest Group, which conducts research into Jewish history, more than 1,800 Jews lived in the town around 1850. It was one of the biggest Jewish communities in Moravia at the time. However, the community was later torn apart by the Holocaust. Only 14 of 458 Boskovice Jews deported to concentration camps survived the war.
Bransky, 75, says he will never forget those who died in the Holocaust. “I was very sorry when the Jewish population was removed in transports during the war. Afterward the town felt like a desert,” Bransky added.
Kraus said he would be delighted if evidence does prove Kerry’s link to Rabbi Loew.
“Mr. Kerry would be welcome to come to Prague, whether or not he wins the election in the United States. We would be very happy, as we are in other cases, to help him find out more about his family,” Kraus said.”
Oh, my G-d!
A former high level American regime official spills the beans.
America is ALREADY waging against Russia and China!
It’s on, ladies and gentlemen…. World War 3.
Former US Government Official: US Already at War with China and Russia
kerry is from the same ‘skull & crossbones’ as bush 2, so very flawed just on that alone. He also looks quite miserable, you just have to wonder why. As for biden, his son attended a jesuit school; yatseniuk is a greek catholic, add in the catholic Poland’s influence via its creation of the (EU approved) Eastern Partnership, and you can see what an unholy mess they have created.
Yatseniuk is a greek catholic?
What dou you mean by that?
I just now caught this from the ‘Handmaiden to the Barbarian’ BBC (British Bloviators Corporation):
Russia targets ‘undesirable’ foreign organisations
It states that “The draft leaves the definition of “undesirable” open to interpretation”. For Russia, at present and under threat, that is probably a good thing but perhaps readers here could help the BBC in understanding those people and organisations that fit the ‘undesirable’ label?
I’d start with Nuland and Pyatt as individuals and NED as a subversive CIA group.
Sadly, organisations like ‘Doctors Without Borders’ are riddled with CIA assets.
Doctors without Borders always sets up in areas to treat the US proxy forces– al qaeda, etc.
yes, I get that impression too.
True that French bastard Kouchner ,also jewish was in Kosovo
The Greek section of MSF was expelled from Kosovo by the organisation for giving medical aid to Serbs during the NATO bombing in 1999.
Bernard Kouchner head of MSF at the time was also the first international administrator of NATO occupied Kosovo.
During his tenure hundreds of Serbs were abducted and murdered by the KLA for their organs.
Why it took the Russians and Chinese so long to expel these Western subversives is quite beyond me. Next step must be to expel hate-mongering Western MSM scum like The Guardian, and lock up all the compradore traitors. Playing fair with habitual cheats, thieves and hypocrites is quite mad.
Mulga, China & Rus are STILL not expelling US NGOs for the most part– just making them register as foreign agents. They’re expelling only a few.
Nice intelligent analysis by Petr Akopov
It was good. He would receive an A in my class: despite the fact that…
I differ with a key portion of his analysis/description of the political power relations within the American government. The 2 key portions of Akopov’s analysis are quoted below.
“US Secretary of State Kerry occupies fifth place in the official American power hierarchy – that is, he is fourth in line to take the place in the White House should anything happen to the President (after the Vise-President and Speakers of House and Senate). However, in the real power hierarchy 71 years-old John Kerry, former Presidential candidate, who belongs on his mother’s side to the one of the most influential American oligarchic families Forbes (he is also married to the billions of ketchup “Heinz”), is positioned even higher.”
“Of course, if Obama unexpectedly had turned out to be a strong President (although he was not elected for that) with his own geopolitical if not strategy but, at least, tactics, then his impact of the US foreign policy would have been decisive. But as things stand, he has become the first among equals, dependent on his more experienced associates.”
I must immediately qualify my partial (and respectful) critique of Akopov’s Thesis, by reminding-that my comments are clearly my viewpoint, and that I could be in error (and that this would be the first time), and, Akopov, could indeed, be correct.
Akopov, The American Communist Party, American Liberals, Socialists, and Conservatives (the Liberals and Conservatives represent the overwhelming majority of the American political trajectory), all agree that the government of the United States, although a biit thoughtless, and even brutal at times, is nevertheless a Constitutional entity, and a Democratic one at that.
Golly! I’m all alone! No one loves me! Not my children, or my grandchildren, not even my Ex.
However, our Constitutional (I did not say perfect and able to walk on water), Government, the Democratic Republic of John F. Kennedy, was overthrown in an early Kievan, remember the assassination of Diem in Saigon, early Guatemala of 1954, and late Chile, Argentina, Greece, operations, among dozens of others??? Our lovely (and exceptional!?!?) Republic of my youth, when I was young and handsome, ceased to exist on November 22, 1963.
Remnants of the American Democracy continued to survive after the Coup d’etat in Dallas, but, little by little their lights went out. All those who attempted to turn the lights back on were subsequently liquidated. Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcalm X, Fred Hampton, and John Lennon, are just the best known of our forgotten heroes.
There is a new generation of heroes, Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Jesse Ventura, Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney (Congresswoman went on that boatride to Gaza), and you know where they are. By the way, Ventura and wife reside in Mexico (they feel safer there). Ron Paul is politically isolated; Dennis Kucinich, had his Congressional District legislated out of existance, and is therefore, unemployed and out of sight. You may recall that Paul and Kucinich led the Congressional opposition to the $13 Trillion ‘Bailout’ of the American Banker Oligarchs. Ralph Nader is carefully managed. He may comment on the economy (carefully), but not on foreign policy. Noam Chomsky, is routinely threatened with the loss of his job at MIT. And former President Jimmy Carter, who said that the United States is no longer a Democracy, is another non-person. He was not allowed to greet the American people from the rostrum at Obombers Democrat gang 2nd nominating Convention. Ron Paul was also denied that privilege at the Republican gang Convention.
I could continue, but the caffeine is wearing off.
The main point is that the United States is not a democratic nation, and the Republic is long dead. The Russian and Chinese and Iranian and Indian leaders must negotiate with representatives of a Totalitarian, Militarist, Imperialist, and Terrorist regime. Vladimir Putin must talk to, and negotiate with the modern political equivalents of Goebbles, Hess, Hitler, and Mussolini. And that is an exceedingly difficult and dangerous task.
Can we Americans pull a Democratic Republic out of a Magician’s hat?
Why does Akopov refuse to admit the obvious?
For the Democratic Republics! Here and There!
Carter’s legacy is of a war monger (Afghanistan) and spawning bin laden
“The main point is that the United States is not a democratic nation, and the Republic is long dead. The Russian and Chinese and Iranian and Indian leaders must negotiate with representatives of a Totalitarian, Militarist, Imperialist, and Terrorist regime.”
Exactly. Same goes for all Europe. And what is even worse: there is no turning back.
Think about it, folks. The modern Western “democracies” were from the onset designed by the Oligarchs as Trojan horses. Democratic States have no immune system, no in-build autonomous defense mechanisms. Once the psychopaths have hacked the purposefully flawed and purely cosmetic checks & balances of modern Western Republics – which takes at the most 20, 30 years – it is game over.
The power in a country needs to be decentralized w most decisions handled locally. Progressive taxation to prevent the accumulation of fortunes large enough to buy the legislature & judges. Corporate charters used to be at the pleasure of the people, cd be not renewed if found not in people’s interest.
The oligarchs trying to get rid of US (& all states) are traitors, shd be arrested.
The American public has been bombarded with US propaganda for so long that indeed, turning back would be extremely hard at this point, if not totally impossible.
The people of these nations have been so thoroughly with propaganda for so long I am afraid you are right. There is no turning back.
Putin is reputedly a Mafia Don. Therefore he applies the precepts of Don Corleone: “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”.
@ Vladimir Putin must talk to, and negotiate with the modern political equivalents of Goebbles, Hess, Hitler, and Mussolini.
And of Trotsky, Schiff, Warburg, Baruch, a.o.
This author lost me at “…the US unintentionally has created chaos and is unable to extricate itself from it or solve the numerous problems. The growth of the caliphate, strained relations with almost all allies in the region, a boiling mess in Afghanistan, the Iranian labyrinth. Russia is supporting Syria, establishing closer relations with Iran and Egypt, approaching Pakistan, and looking closely at Afghanistan.”
What serious geopolitical analyst still gives credence to the “unintentional Chaos” theory of American foreign policy? His entire analysis is premised on this theory, he therefore concludes that the poor misguided, bumbling Americans came cup in hand to Dyadya Putin to save them from themselves. It’s strange to still read memes like this in the Russian media, especially on crosstalk. No matter how vicious and cold bloodedly murderous the Americans get, the response is always the same. Must all Russia’s allies be destroyed before these analysts acknowledge that there’s nothing unintentional about the strategy of chaos being pursued here?
I must agree with you that the chaos that The Hegemon wages is deliberate. Undermine, divide and conquer, destroy infrastructure then make the victim pay for rebuild as an IMF debt slave after the greedy corporate vultures have looted what appeals to them.
Given the repsonse in 2008 to the USA led Saakashvili attack on S.Ossetia there must have been analysts that warned of the possibility, but I am unsure even whether Crimea’s return to Russia wasn’t an intended outcome. It gave to the USA and their compliant MSM the tool to hang the ‘aggression and invasion’ label for posterity on Russia. This paved the way for any other ‘defensive’ measures to weaken Russia and for USA style regime change.
In the summer of 2013 the US Navy had a web page that included a request for bids on construction in Sevastopol.
This suggests to me that the US Navy was allowing at least for the possibility that Crimea would come under US control–obviously as part of the Ukraine that also would be under US control, as has since happened.
I think the US was simply out-played, not realizing that Russia would find a way to do what it had to do.
Apparently they often did little jobs like that,. as a charity donation (and to make people like them).
Here’s a story about several other schools in Crimea they worked on, and other things in Ukraine.
Pretty much agree. That “chaos” deflection is used throughout liberal media to avoid stating the obvious. Furthermore, it shields Israel & co., who are the real benefactor of it, and who orchestrated it.
By Israel Shahak. The Infamous “Oded Yinon Plan”. With an introduction by Michel Chossudovsky.
This is what chaos in the Mideast is mainly about. Israel Shahak is not an unknown in Russia, especially among the left:
Second listing down.
The Russian left does not leave Israel out of the geopolitical equation:
Three of the articles presented on that page are Russian translations of essays written by James Petras (see: Джеймс Петрас), including this one about zionist control in the USA (second article listed there by Petras):

Apparently messed up the first link, should be:
“Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East
As Ben-Gurion and Herzl endlessly asserted, Eretz Yisrael extends from ‘The brook of Egypt (Nile) to the Euphrates. Other, more ambitious types, also claim the Arabian Peninsula, and Lebanon up to the Litani is theirs as well, apparently belonging not to its Lebanese inhabitants, but to the ‘tribe of Asher’.
The mentioning of Eretz Israel always makes me smile.
Everybody is dreaming his dream of a dreamy future.
How foolish. Always ends with tears and a headache.
The Oded Yinon Plan is verboten in the Western MSM. Mentioning it gets you slandered as an ‘antisemite'(TM) and/or censored. It very plainly outlines the genocidal outrages that have destroyed Iraq, Syria, south Lebanon etc, and presages similar destruction for Egypt, Iran and Saudi Arabia. Similar destruction was visited on Sudan, as promised by Mossad after Sudan joined the 1967 war. When that vivisection was consummated with the independence of South Sudan, there were more Israeli flags flying in celebration in Juba than South Sudanese, a fact that the MSM somehow missed (as with their ubiquity at early English Defence League anti-Moslem riots in the UK).
Have you noticed that all those who ever published the “Protocols” met with the harshest punishments, implacably pursued? Hitler, Nasser, Anwar Sadat, Shah Reza Pahlavi, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Mubarak, Assad (“The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Syrian best-seller: Another version of The Protocols, published in Syria in 2004/ Bashar Assad’s Syria: A focus of continued incitement to venomous anti-Semitism”@http://www.terrorism-info.org.il/en/article/19188).
Henry Ford said of ‘The Protocols..’, that he had no idea whether they were true or not, but what they described was precisely the behaviour that he had witnessed himself. I often wonder it they are not a Jewish creation designed to be easily denounced as ‘faked’, that describe real, if not centrally organised, behaviour by the Jewish elites, and thereby those very real activities can be dismissed as ‘concoctions’. As Mossad says, ‘By way of deception…’, and whatever you do, don’t let your right hand lose its cunning.
@I often wonder if they are not a Jewish creation designed to be easily denounced as ‘faked’, that describe real, if not centrally organised, behaviour by the Jewish elites….
I am sure that you know all this, but I could not resist to remind the reasons given by Israel Shahak himself for the publication of the Oded Yinon plan and why there are no risks of an adverse reaction:
‘Why it is necessary to publish this in Israel?’
“The reason for publication is the dual nature of the Israeli-Jewish society: A very great measure of freedom and democracy, specially for Jews, combined with expansionism and racist discrimination. In such a situation the Israeli-Jewish elite (for the masses follow the TV and Begin’s speeches) has to be persuaded. The first steps in the process of persuasion are oral, as indicated above, but a time comes in which it becomes inconvenient. Written material must be produced for the benefit of the more stupid “persuaders” and “explainers” (for example medium-rank officers, who are, usually, remarkably stupid). They then “learn it,” more or less, and preach to others.”
‘Why is it assumed that there is no special risk from the outside in the publication of such plans?’
“Such risks can come from two sources, so long as the principled opposition inside Israel is very weak (a situation which may change as a consequence of the war on Lebanon) : The Arab World, including the Palestinians, and the United States. The Arab World has shown itself so far quite incapable of a detailed and rational analysis of Israeli-Jewish society, and the Palestinians have been, on the average, no better than the rest. In such a situation, even those who are shouting about the dangers of Israeli expansionism (which are real enough) are doing this not because of factual and detailed knowledge, but because of belief in myth. A good example is the very persistent belief in the non-existent writing on the wall of the Knesset of the Biblical verse about the Nile and the Euphrates. Another example is the persistent, and completely false declarations, which were made by some of the most important Arab leaders, that the two blue stripes of the Israeli flag symbolize the Nile and the Euphrates, while in fact they are taken from the stripes of the Jewish praying shawl (Talit). The Israeli specialists assume that, on the whole, the Arabs will pay no attention to their serious discussions of the future, and the Lebanon war has proved them right. So why should they not continue with their old methods of persuading other Israelis?
In the United States a very similar situation exists, at least until now. The more or less serious commentators take their information about Israel, and much of their opinions about it, from two sources. The first is from articles in the “liberal” American press, written almost totally by Jewish admirers of Israel who, even if they are critical of some aspects of the Israeli state, practice loyally what Stalin used to call “the constructive criticism.” (In fact those among them who claim also to be “Anti-Stalinist” are in reality more Stalinist than Stalin, with Israel being their god which has not yet failed). In the framework of such critical worship it must be assumed that Israel has always “good intentions” and only “makes mistakes,” and therefore such a plan would not be a matter for discussion–exactly as the Biblical genocides committed by Jews are not mentioned. The other source of information, The Jerusalem Post, has similar policies. So long, therefore, as the situation exists in which Israel is really a “closed society” to the rest of the world, because the world wants to close its eyes, the publication and even the beginning of the realization of such a plan is realistic and feasible.”
Anyone peddling the imbecility that US aggression is in any way ‘unintentional’ has zero knowledge of history since the 1820s and the Monroe Doctrine, or is a disinformationist. The USA (its ruling elites and State apparatus) is and has long been, the greatest force for Evil in human history, and must be confronted as such. Backing down only ever invites more aggression, subversion and sabotage.

Democracy Through Creative Destruction?
May 19, 2003
[This doesn’t mean actual democracy, of course]
The people most often mentioned as designers of President Bush’s war on Iraq and terrorism are Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Pearle. Here is another name to remember: Michael Ledeen. According to William O. Beeman, writing for the Pacific News Service (5/8/03), Ledeen (a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington) is one of the lead visionaries behind the president’s new security strategy.
“Change—above all violent change—is the essence of human history,” writes Ledeen, and the United States should act on this basis. “Creative destruction is our middle name. We do it automatically…it is time once again to export the democratic revolution.” As Beeman explains, Ledeen “believes that violence in the service of the spread of democracy is America’s manifest destiny.”
The purpose of total war is to permanently force your will onto another people.
Also at http://www.assatashakur.org/forum/breaking-down-understanding-our-enemies/3007-creative-destruction.html
Quote from key neo-con theoretician Michael Ledeen, the driving philosophical force behind the neoconservative movement and the military actions it has spawned, and the author of “Universal Fascism,” a book which speaks favorably of fascism as a “revolutionary movement.” Ledeen’s ideas are repeated daily by the men who are running our country today–Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz:
“Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity, which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace. Seeing America undo traditional societies, they fear us, for they do not wish to be undone. They cannot feel secure so long as we are there, for our very existence — our existence, not our politics — threatens their legitimacy. They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission.”
All quite deliberate — like robbing a jewelry store by throwing a bomb into it, and then gathering up whatever good stuff is found in the debris.
But it can easily go out of control, and often does — in which case the US just walks away and moves on to the next victim, leaving the chaos behind to offer no threat to the hedgemon, and perhaps to work on at some convenient later time. It seems not to occur to these lunatics that the blowback and systemic destruction could affect them, such is their hubris.
@Ledeen (a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington) is one of the lead visionaries behind the president’s new security strategy.
“Ledeen was a founding member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs and he served on the JINSA Board of Advisors. In 2003, the Washington Post alleged that he was consulted by Karl Rove, George W. Bush’s closest advisor, as his main international affairs adviser.
Michael Ledeen had been accused of being involved in the forgery which claimed that Saddam Hussein had bought yellowcake in Niger.”
But was only him forgotten?
What about Douglas Faith?
“Feith favors US support for Israel and has promoted US-Israeli cooperation. He also favors stronger US-Turkish cooperation, and increased military ties between Turkey and Israel. Both Feith and his father have been honored by the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), a conservative organization that often makes common cause on foreign policy issues with conservative Christian organizations. His father, Dalck, was a member of the Betar, the Revisionist Zionist youth organization. (The Betar Movement (בית”ר, also spelled Beitar, is a Revisionist Zionist youth movement founded in 1923 in Riga, Latvia, by Ze’ev Jabotinsky. Betar members played important roles in the fight against the British during the Mandate, and in the creation of Israel. It has been traditionally linked to the original Herut and then Likud Israeli political parties). Have you heard of Benzion Netanyahu (aka Benzion Mileikovsky, son of writer and Zionist activist Nathan Mileikowsky)? Benzion was Ze’ev Jabotinsky’s personal secretary, and yes, you guessed it…father of Bibi!).
Robert Kagan prince consort of the Nuland F**k EU. No introduction needed.
Frederick Kagan, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and a former professor of military history at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. His lovely wife is Kimberly Kagan, president of the Institute for the Study of War (no more no less).
Both sons of Donald Kagan, great historian of the ‘Peloponesian War’ and one of the original signers to the 1997 Statement of Principles by the neoconservative “think tank,” ‘Project for the New American Century’ (PNAC)”.
And the list continues, actually becomes longer and longer.
What do they have in common? They all alight from the Pale of Settlement, like Trotsky, Kamenev – Rosenfeld (Trotsky’s brother in law), Zinoviev (head of the Comintern), Angelika Balabanoff (the lover and Muse of Mussolini!), David Ben-Gurion (Gruen), Golda Meir (nee Mabovich, in Kiev), Anne Siklebaum (erhh, Aplebaum-
PS : “The autonomy of Ukraine was openly greeted by the Ukrainian Jewish Volodymyr Zhabotinsky” (Wikipedia). Yes, he is the same as Ze’ev (the Wolf) Jabotinsky.
Ok, Ok, I stop.
Good analysis, two minor points:
– I do not believe for a second that the results of U.S. strategy in the ME are unintended. Total chaos has been created, so the U.S. policy for that region was, unfortunately, at least 90% successful. The last 10% being Syria, obviously.
– I also do not believe that the U.S. administration seriously thinks that Putin’s agenda is (or could eventually be) the annexation of Ukraine. Or that they have any questions about his far-reaching goals. They simply couldn’t match Putin’s geopolitical game, and now try to salvage what they can.
John “Kerry” is the grandson of Fritz Kohn. He is neither Anglo nor Saxon, and neither is his wife. He claims to have discovered only late in his political life the facts of his heritage. The same thing happened with a previous Secretary of State, Madeline Albright, how likely is that? Presidential candidate and former Supreme Commander of NATO, General Wesley Clark, claimed to be surprised when a member of the press discovered his heritage and confronted him with it. Hillary Clinton didn’t joke about her Yiddish speaking grandmother until Bill had left the white house. Could there be a pattern here?
Yes, indeed. Dr David Ernest Duke is the American version of the blessed Russian scholar, Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn. If all you know of this gentleman scholar is what the Zio media has told you, then you know nothing at all. Dr Duke is a noble soul and a light in the darkness of the Zio empire.
‘noble soul’ my foot!
former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan
Duke is a felon, having plead guilty to defrauding supporters by falsely claiming to have no money and being in danger of losing his home in order to solicit emergency donations; at the time, Duke was financially secure, and used the donations for recreational gambling.
In His Own Words
“Racial idealism, or racialism, is the idea that a nation’s greatest resource is the quality of its people. It means examining all questions of government on the basis of whether the proposed measure is good or bad for our race. … Neither Communism, Capitalism, nor any other materialistic doctrine can save our race; our only racial salvation lies in a White racial alliance uniting our people with the common cause of racial idealism.”
— September 1970 article in The Racialist
I usually agree with most of your comments, but really using Wikipedia as a “source”? And then referring to “intelligence files”? Come on.
That is validating MSM as legitimate. I agree with Joy.
American doenmeh. Marranos? Anusim?
A perceptive and refreshingly realistic analysis.
(1) “… John Kerry … who belongs on his mother’s side to the one of the most influential American oligarchic families Forbes (he is also married to the billions of ketchup “Heinz”) … Kerry – he is that hereditary Anglo-Saxon elite that governs the USA (it is not by accident that he is related to another dynasty – Bushes). …”
John “Kerry”-s real family name is Kohn, which can be found out even from Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Kerry (Kerry’s paternal grandparents, shoe businessman Frederick A. “Fred” Kerry and musician Ida Lowe, were immigrants from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Fred was born as “Fritz Kohn” before he and Ida took on the “Kerry” name and moved to the United States. Fred and Ida were born Jewish, and converted to Catholicism together in Austria. His maternal ancestors were of Scottish and English descent…). Etc…
Thus, the above stands corrected: he is that hereditary Anglo-Saxon-Jew elite that rules the USA. The one truly favored tribal amalgam at the helm of the waning but still powerful malignant Empire.
(2) “… Clinton and Biden were directing the game. The former distinguished herself by the Freudian error with “peregruzka”, and the latter – by the clearly stupid attempt to interfere openly into the internal affairs of Russia trying to split the Russian elites and betting on the Medvedev’s re-election. As a result, by the beginning of the Obama’s second term in 2013 our countries found themselves on the brink of a cold war. …”
The author in fact acknowledges the already existing sharp internal division betwixt – in Saker’s parlance – Atlantic Integrationists and Eurasian Sovereignists. Medvedev (who still is not put out to pasture…) representing the former.
So Fritz Kerry became Catholic 100 years ago. His grandson married money; so we have “that hereditary Anglo-Saxon-Jew elite that rules the USA.”
Are they foolish or are they dumb joojaters? It’s an Anglo-Irish-German-Swedish-Austrian-Polish-Russian-Czech-Slovak-Serb-Croat-Hungarian-Romanian-Bulgarian-Spanish-French-Danish-Dutch-Belgian-Norwegian-Finn-Latvian-Jewish-Mexican elite.
The look for Jews. If they can’t find them, they invent them.
“… look for Jews …”

Not blind at all. Just throwing sand in our eyes.
Homo homini lupus est
“[Kerry came] to evaluate whether there are symptoms that this “mysterious Russian” in his heart of hearts has no problem with globalization, but simply wants to secure a position for himself in the club of those ruling the “golden billion” and for his country – a dignified place among Western countries.”
Petr Akopov has posed the question.
For those of us who understand what the New World Order is, it is not sufficient that its leadership should be multipolar. We would like to dismember the already-built skeletal structure of it, returning economic sovereignty to individual nations. Because the military conflicts so impact our senses and our compassion we are apt to forget that the NWO is to be brought about by primarily economic means– banking and corporate means. Through the power afforded them by the IMF, BIS, and WTO the leading transnationals have already usurped 40% of the world’s wealth.
Theoretical freedom is actualized when nations are able to complete the economic projects that support our lives and our dreams. And if we want a dependable dividend left over for individual actualization we cannot let the world continue to be ruled by the IMF, the BIS and the WTO. Central banks must once again become tools of national policy, not of the the internationl banking cabal through the IMF.
See Ellen Brown. See Starikov’s free online book.
“… Central banks must once again become tools of national policy, not of the the international banking cabal through the IMF. … See Ellen Brown. …”
Yes. A couple of years back, in one of her (always) excellent articles, she explained how Colonel Qaddafi was doing exactly that with Libyan banking system, successfully. The tiny microcosm of North Dakota is the only place with something similar, though, being not in any way comparable to the oil-super-rich Libya, it is generally undisturbed. While independent Libya and Qaddafi (one is sorry to recall, with Russian complicity) are no more.
One quibble: “Through its actions, the US unintentionally has created chaos and is unable to extricate itself from it or solve the numerous problems.”
Nothing about that was “unintentional.” This is what the US does – create chaos and profit from it. Pepe Escobar likes to call the US the “Empire of Chaos” – which is perfectly correct.
could we offer in exchange, what could we
do to reach a deal with the Russians about
“local cooperation” and at the same time
keep Ukraine for ourselves?
The idea that this is impossible in principle,
that Putin will not give up his goal of
reforming the unipolar world even after
Ukraine has returned to the Russia’s orbit
would never ever enter their minds. Their
very Anglo-Saxon minds.”
That’s it in the proverbial nutshell.
After Afghanistan, the collapse of the S.U. and later on, Chechnya the Bear knew The Eagle could never be stopped unless it faced a power equal to it’s own.
The adroitly-managed return of Crimea and the partitioning of the Ukraine has left the Eagle somewhat uncertain of *how* to ‘play’ the Bear: that’s why the Ketchup King went Sochi.
Metaphors aside, Putin probably gave the Ketchup King the impression of some concessions/mutual interests/common ground.
If so, they are purely tactical and will only advance the strategic goals. The Bear is not an actor in the Eagles ‘play’ – he is the writer, (along with the Dragon) of his own script.
Perhaps the potatoes, DNA-altered on one side, unadulterated on the other, epitomise it best: authentic/traditional versus bogus/’progressive’.
Marching freely and open…with average looking plainclothes bodyguards here and there. Russians have a softer approach to security; it doesn’t appear to be there but it is.
The American attempt of nation building generally fails during the attempted rebuilding phase. During second American attack on Iraq, it was during the reconstruction phase that the Iraqis wiped the Americans out through sustained attacks on American infrastructure, kidnappings and ransoms, etc. Same with Iraq, but it took the Afghanis a bit longer. In Libya, the Americans were unable to get to the reconstruction phase. And now the Americans are too weak to attack Syria or anywhere else. All they can affford to do is “show of force” photoshoots. The alternative media has been very good at making the Americans appear stronger and more competant than they really are.
This “order through chaos” idea doesn’t make sense and at worst serves the Americans by making them appear to have a strategy when all they have are non-strategies. The Americans want something like Irbil — a mecca for American corporate state, complete with corporate contracts, offices, and compliant disposable locals. They want a lifetime of corporate contracts rather than short term weapon replacements. It’s no wonder that Islamic State — a combined insurgency composed of hundreds of independent groups — has attacked the Kurds, who have collaborated with the Americans for a long time.
Israel is more or less America’s North Korea minus an effective fighting force. They might be able to routinely bribe Americans for another round of welfare handouts to delay their inevitable annihilation, but this is a sign of weakness, not strength.
The ultimate vulnerability of all nation states is their industrial infrastructure. The Americans can easily permantely disrupt Russian infrastrucure with relatively little effort. Same with China. Same with all of these energy deals between BRICS, much of which has not even been built yet, and if the Americans want to, it never will. Of course, NSA has admitted that China can turn off the American power grid permanently with the flip of a switch. Nuclear war unlikely because of MAD and global economic interconnection, plus the general desire to leave important infrastructure relatively intact. WW3 apex will likely involve keystrokes, and then the power is out permanently. What is considered to be a modern military is more or less a world war 2 reenactment. WIthout the infrastructure that produced them, these machines will make very expensive road blocks.
The Americans are the prime evil empire, but BRICS are not the good guys and nothing to root for. Once the Americans perish, BRICS will ruin and pollute their own land even more and hit resource constraints, in which they too will perish in their vain efforts for commerce. Hopefully they can all fall before they destroy everything.
America is not interested in nation building.
America is interested in nation destroying.
And the chaos that the United States imposes on the world is in fact a conscious strategy.
There is even a name ofr this strategy:
The assertion that this chaos is not really an American strategy is a nonsensical alibi.
Anonymous, US does not want “order thru chaos”. They want destruction thru chaos. They don’t want to spare the infrastructure for commercial purposes. Greed, industrial profits, etc is NOT their no. 1 priority. Their goal is raw power, the complete control of an entire planet– an oligarchy ruling over a planet w very much reduced population.
You might take a look at the Vigilantcitizen website & look at the sites tab. The artwork at the International Denver Airport & even that at Rockefelle Center tells you explicitly what they want.
If they weren’t interested in nation building, and were instead interested in a total war of annihiliation, there would have been no attempt to rebuild Iraq or Afghanistan. In order for them to project their power, they must have infrastructure to support their war machine. The Iraqis and Afghanis exploited the American weakness of reliance on the corporate sector, and defeated them.
America is not a society that studies war or is capable of fighting a total war. It is a society of commerce that requires their victims to be intact for slavery. The best example of a total war society that *completely* destroys its enemies would be the Mongol horde. The Americans are nothing compared to them.
Symbols don’t rule the world. Physical actions do. They may want their raw power, but they are not going about acquiring it in a productive way. That’s what a non-strategy is. Their domestic infrastructure is crumbling and their economy is collapsing. What they want is irrelvant at this point. If they aren’t already in their own version of Hitler’s bunker, they soon will be.
Penelope, the ultimate Atlanticist objective is population reduction by Malthusian means, ie genocide. They regard the non-Western world and its populations as ‘useless eaters’ who threaten their power and privilege, and their very existence through ecological catastrophe. Chaos leading to war, genocide (Daash)famine, pestilence, mass flight etc will only grow and grow as time goes by. Syria, Libya, Somalia, Iraq are the future.
What ‘they’ want depends on which ‘they’ one talks of — it’s not monolithic. Different factions share some goals and diverge on others. Traditional imperialists, crazies in the basement, financiers and speculators, industrialists, military industry, political vampires out just for themselves, weird ideologues and religious nuts — all different groups even if one is on top at any given moment, or intermixed among themselves. This is part of what make US actions so nutty, and so ineffective.
US geo-politics is dominated by the neo-conservatives a movement of Likudnik Jews and Sabbat Goyim fellow travellers. US economic policy is dominate by the neo-liberal Free Market insanity, in which Milton Friedman and various other Jews are strongly represented. As Friedman observed, ‘Capitalism is good for the Jews’, particularly in the highly financialised US economy, where the finance Moloch is dominated by Jews from the Wall Street behemoths down to the pay-day lender and pawn industry parasites. Of course money lending and extraction has been a Jewish specialty for millennia, and often got them into trouble. The religious injunctions not to charge interest on a ‘brother’, but go for broke with the ‘strangers’ no doubt facilitates the process. Certainly there are other tendencies at work in the USA, but the traditionally Judeophobic WASPs are neutered, the Cristian fundamentalists rigorously pro-Israel (often for very malign reasons)and the rest of society ruthlessly policed by the ‘antisemitism'(TM) Thought Police.
As it is agreed – there is no way that any agreement can be reached, and it is clear to even the most incompetent political analyst (everywhere is saying that!) Then apparently Kerry did NOT go to Russia for an agreement.
So why else will he go, under the pretence of reaching an agreement?
China is “taking care” of Ukraine. Remember the double helix? Russia takes care of the anti-China countries, while China takes care of the anti-Russia countries in Europe and Asia…
Is Kiev (or more like Poroshenko, he is losing power) giving up on US and looking for other opportunities? Sochi is very near Ukraine, Georgia after all, god knows what Kerry actually did there…
Also, once Kerry ended this soft-talk with Putin, guess where he went. China. And no more soft talk, now it is hard talk…
I wonder if he is trying to make Russia less “scared” of America and have another reset… While starting offensives with China… Divide and conquer anyone?
Anglo-Zionists are not stupid, dammit… we wish they are, but they are definitely not. Hitler and Lenin, anyone?
JADE; Your idea that US might pursue “divide & conquer” w China & Rus is echoed in this link. 5/14/15 http://atimes.com/2015/05/us-puts-russia-china-entente-to-litmus-test/
Old koan: ‘Why did XuanZang (introducing Buddhism) go to China? (Why did the chicken cross the road?)
Nothing better to do at the time.
“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…” _Yeats
The target audience is likely EU, and what should EU make of it? That US is not really over the edge and it is not necessary to fly to the East? (Or bail out Ukraine)? Seems to be the centre of the EU which is currently flying apart the most. So do lunch with Russia and China, who won’t be fooled in the least, but perhaps the EU — at least the business class — will be confused some and put off breaking from the US.
“Plunderers of the world, when nothing remains on the lands to which they have laid waste by wanton thievery, they search out across the seas. The wealth of another region excites their greed; and if it is weak, their lust for power as well. Nothing from the rising to the setting of the sun is enough for them. Among all others only they are compelled to attack the poor as well as the rich. Robbery, rape, and slaughter they falsely call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace.”
Talk about now,all over.wow.
Personally I think this ‘change’ in US policy is a stategy of up and down…cold and hot…and then synthesis…like that Hegel doctrine…
Excellent comment, Ann. You nailed it. First they’re hot, then they’re cold. that’s how they keep their adversaries off balance. Like any toxic dysfunctional relationship.

Serbs know Kouchner as an enemy, but would never mention that he is a Jew.
First, they would not think of it—unless Kouchner was an anti-Semite, in which case his paternity would be of interest.
Second, Serbs would not want to be associated with dumb Aryanists arguing whether their opponent was a Christian, a Mischling or a Volljude. Racial identity or anti-Semitism were never popular in Serbia; during WW2, Jews were welcome both by Partisans and Chetniks.
Third, an eventual Serb joohater would check first. Kouchner’s mother was Protestant; so, by Jewish law, he doesn’t pass.
Serbs know very well that Jews are no friends to the Serbs. We remember the 90’s. We remember Coushner, HBL, Holbrooke, Clark, Albright, Cohen, Rubin and hundreds of others.
We remember what they have done to Milica Rakić, and to thousands more.
Serbia supports Palestine.
Of course, there are islamophobic Serbian idiots as well, who support the Jews and Israel, but they are not in majority, and they don’t create Serbian foreign policy, which is pro-Arab.
As for Kerry, he is Jewish, and he was hiding his origins just as Albright did and Wesley Clark did.
This is the era of internet, you cannot fool people any more.
The period of friendship between Jews and Serbs was destroyed in the blood of Serbian children killed by Zionist Western Jewish oligarchy in the 1990’s.
Just to make things clear.
Thanks for making things perfectly clear that we nave a problem.
There are fake friends of Novorossiya, whose function is to tag the best known pro-Novorossiya sites, like RT and the Saker, as anti-Semitic.
Since the Kiev ideology is founded on the Bandera-OUN-SS-Galizien tradition, that must be masked with the charge that Novorossiya is supported by real Nazis and joohaters, as evidenced by dozens of daily antisemitic posts on RT or the Saker. Some must be for real, since joohaters are still active in Eastern Europe; most are fake pro-Russians, posting from Kiev or Brooklyn.
The menace is not ‘the Jews’, because Jews, like all groups, however defined by themselves or others, must be varied in character and behaviour from one individual to another. And the members of most groups, in their variety, often more closely resemble members of other groups than members of their own. A decent, non-racist Jew is more like a decent, non-racist, Palestinian than a racist Jew.
That said the Judaic and Israeli grandees, the leaders of the racist, terror, state, and the controlling Fifth Columns in business, the MSM, and politics in the West, are, indeed, mad, bad and dangerous to know. One of the most evil cabals in all history, and one of the most powerful, and they will bring horror to the Jews, decent and not so, as surely as they have to the Palestinians, Syrians, Libyans, Iraqis etc.
True, the allies of the Empire among the Jews are dangerous, as are the allies of the Empire in every nation. In any NATO country, the leaders are “mad, bad and dangerous”, as you said.
The no name mother of Bernard was “Protestant”. What sort of “protestant”?
Let see how he was perceived by the Jews and by himself:
The Australian Jewish News, July 26, 2007
“Bernard Kouchner: revival of the rational Jewish left”
COLUMN by Julie Szego,
“KOUCHNER’S mother was Protestant, his father Jewish. His paternal grandparents had fled the Russian pogroms, only to be hunted by the Nazis in France.
“My grandparents died in Auschwitz,” Kouchner wrote in his 1995 memoir, “and for years no-one dared or wanted to tell me … In a mixed family that is not religious, it is even worse: you are either twice as Jewish, or half-Jewish. As a result, you react like a tormented soul in the face of oppression.”
Whether Kouchner is “twice as Jewish” or “half-Jewish” (personally I’d put money on the former), he’s one of a group of prominent leftist dissidents, in which Jews (shock/horror) are over-represented.”
AJN says: He is.
“In a Judaism/Jewry-hailing book “I am Jewish: Personal Reflections Inspired by the Last Words of Daniel Pearl” (JEWISH LIGHTS PUBLISHING, 2005), Kouchner appeared as one of the many Jewish co-authors, contributing with a chapter of his own. Other co-authors with Kouchner in this book are Zionists like Ehud Barak, Natan Sharansky and Avraham Burg”.
Bernard says: I am.
When in 2009 the journalist Pierre Pean published a book “Le monde selon K” (The world according to K) in which he described “describes Kouchner as a lackey of U.S. neoconservatives and a wheeler-dealer who used his political positions of power to secure lucrative contracts from impoverished countries”, Kouchner responded with a long and emotional speech in the French Parliament, saying he was the victim of “an anti-Semitic attack”, and the first to jump in his defense was Bernard Henri-Levy.
Kouchner, the execrable Bernard-Henry Levy, Alain Finkelkraut, Pascal Bruckner, Andre Glucksman, Eric Zemmour, et al-a burden that France bears stoically.
Dear The Saker,
Another Russian rocket fails at the last minute carrying a Boeing satellite:
I really feel there is more going on here than meets the eye…..
I can make a guess. Russia is in the process of becoming independent in all components of defense, and I guess missiles too. Glitches can develop when you change suppliers.
I once worked on machine that had an electronic control that operated off a cam on a singler-cycle motor shaft. When the company supplying the motor started using a new sort of bearing with less friction the cam dropped back a bit when power was removed, going backwards a small distance, and that led to the microswitch on the cam actuating twice sometimes instead of once, giving a double instead of single stroke of a knife blade. Same design and machines, and same motor, supposedly, from the same supplier even, but the improvement in the bearing caused problems because the mechanism depended on friction. The solution was to insert a spring to keep the shaft from moving so easily — and it took months, looking now an then as time permitted, to find the mysterious problem.
Typical bug when changing little things, with different side effects. But temporary.
As a pro Russian Anglo Saxon peasant resident in England I take exception to the author’s insensitive brush stroke use of “Anglo Saxon”.
I can only imagine it is through the ignorance of the West and his total lack of understanding of who actually runs the West that he makes this mistake.
We here in the UK and the EU/US are run by Jews at every level. In the UK the House of Windsor (Royal Family) are Jews.
The Bank of England is owned jointly by the House of Windsor and the Rosthchild family…a Jewish owned bank.
Prime Minister Cameron is an Ashkenazi Jew. The courts are run by Jews and no idea, opinion or person who is anti Jewish is permitted power, influence or office.
People are imprisoned for Holocaust denial or deprived of their livelihoods.
Even people who “Tweet” criticism of powerful Jews are imprisoned.
State sponsored paedophilia is rampant throughout the Establishment and is repeatedly covered up to protect the Jews, Zionists and quislings that do the bidding of our Jewish paedophile masters.
No. The Anglo Saxons no longer rule the West, just the Jews, the Zionist’s and the Israeli lobby.
Apart from that the article was fairly good. Well written.
My parents were sold by their Jewish lawyers; the judges who robbed us, however, was not Jewish. How should I explain the event?
They are ZIONIST.
I thank Mr. Cley for the invaluable report that the House of Windsor is Jewish. I must admit I had doubts, so I googled Windsor Jewish, and I got all the evidence necessary, on the Windsor official website. They are not even hiding it. Check it out.
That picture of Queen Elizabeth playing bingo was a dead give-away.
Don’t be silly, Matt.
If you have found evidence of something POST THE LINK. It is up to the person claiming something to back it up, not for others to run around looking for the evidence.
In fact you regularly dot post evidence, and it often turns out that was because you don’t have any. Your suggested Google search just brings up a lot of Jewish organisations in various places all over the world that happen to be called Windsor.
Sino-Soviet experts from the Cold War era were salivating at the prospect of war between the Soviet Union and China. Drooling scholarly works were written. Now they got dry mouth because Russians and Chinese have other ideas for their future. Give those poor Russia and China experts a Lifesaver© to suck on. Academia can’t get it right because they are so disingenuous.
How many times does the State Dept. have to push the reset button?
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me…
Exactly what can Kerry say or do to show that the US isn’t lying?
“OK, so we lied when said Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, and Romania wouldn’t join NATO. But when we promise Ucraine will never, ever join NATO we really, really mean it?”
The US is no longer trusted. Not even by allies – NSA, anyone? Live with it.
Regarding Kerrys visit to Russia, Dr.Roberts wrote recently:
“Having failed with force against Russia, the West is now employing seduction. If Western peoples hope to escape from the Police State that Washington has imposed on the entire Western World, we must pray that Putin does not fall for the seduction.“
In what manner is Kerry part of the alleged hereditary Anglo-Saxon elite that governs the USA?
The American President is black, many of his regimes advisers are blacks and Jews, while Kerry himself is part Jewish.
Nuland and Soros aren’t Anglo-Saxons either.
If Akopov insists on pointing figures at certain ethnic groups perhaps he should point the finger more accurately.
I saw this almost a decade ago. It is only a matter of time, not if. I am surprised someone else saw it as waiting for such a long time I thought I was wrong. I am not sure how they are able to prolong it from imploding for such a long time. The tighter they control it the worse it will be when it breaks. And unlike some I don’t feel sorry for anyone who gets hurt. They were complicit in enjoying its riches and they will pay the price for it. Cant have your cake and eat it too.
Throughout the entire 2000s the U.S. herded the world capital into their bonds by “exporting chaos”, but after the crisis of 2008-2009, this strategy failed (most of debt growth was funded by the Fed). The U.S. strategy towards the Islamic State and Ukraine suggests the transition from debt financing to the strategy of debt write off by fomenting WWIII. This is the main threat of our time.
