In the Laurel and Hardy world of United States foreign relations these days we’ve come to expect anything. A press release from the US State Department the other day warned us of more slapstick detente horrors from none other than Victoria “trailer park” Nuland, America’s assistant secretary of gutter talk.
I hope you’ll forgive the bombastic nature of my intro, but whoever allowed this person to keep her job after her “Fuck the EU” and other insults, they failed the American people. Now, having done her part to kill a few thousand civilians in Eastern Ukraine, and to render a million or so homeless, the Obama administration sees fit to send her to other Russian border lands? Jesus H. Christ, the situation in the world is worse than any of us thought!
Nuland travelled to three countries that border Russia as a poke in the nose at Vladimir Putin and Russia, this is no secret. While BBC and other mainstream media make a big deal our of Russian bombers flying about, the United States is engaged in straight up destabilizing the borderlands surrounding Russia. And we put up with it. The disconnect has to be complete in between the American public and reality. This is all I can figure.
Sending urchins to double deal with Baku, Tbilisi, and Yerevan, Washington is really in all our war mode versus Russia. I made the point the other day that Washington’s “think tanks” are at if enforcing the so-called “Arc of Crisis,” and a Joe Biden disciple even had the gall to engage me over the relative innocence of the Obama administration. Point here being, these people are downright despicable. But I’ll blow the whistle on infiltrators another day. This arc of instability the Obama administration has set as their coarse of international action, it’s well documented and deadly.
To be more clear on Nuland’s missions here, let me quote from the GeoCurrents article entitled; “Is There an Arc of Instability?”
“The basic patterns of the map are clear, however. Geopolitical instability is concentrated in a zone stretching from Central Africa through North Africa and the Middle East and extending into the former Soviet region.”
Right here it’s important to ask the question of Americans and even the United Nations; “What if you knew the government of the United States had declared war on Russia?” Make no mistake, this is exactly where we are. And now maybe the reader will understand by bombastic and ultra critical tone versus Ms. Nuland. Wherever the woman goes, death and chaos seems to follow. But don’t take my word, research the information provided by Thomas Barnett, a senior military analyst with the U.S. Naval War College in his book “The Pentagon’s New Map.” In this important book Barnett outlines the kind of war I am talking about on Russia, a war where the success of the new American order is accomplished via strategy comprised of what he terms as “everything else” or the use of demographics, energy, investment, security, politics, trade, immigration and so forth to prosecute war.
Now that we’ve isolated this new atypical warfare, it’s easy to characterize Nuland as a very crass, but useful, soldier of Obama. Barnett, for better or worse, has given us the blueprint for what we now see as a new American strategy that’s upscale compares to the old Cold War strategic template. The relationship between the United States and the rest of the world we see today, it’s a direct result of this new warfare. I’ve not the time to elaborate, but I do recommend the reader investigate these concepts. As for Nuland, some group should have already demanded her resignation over past discrepancies. Not to have done so, is a signal to the administration their play is AOK.
In its effort to subdue Russia and remain the world’s number one hegemon the US is restarting the Cold War (did it ever end?). I remember that in the 70’s or 80’s there were anti-American attitudes expressed openly by European leaders but today it can be said that the EU is a US captured vassal. If you look closely at the EU you see at all levels officials with connections to the US. Some years ago I read a comment by a onetime US official that said the US bought off EU officials or placed their US trained people in positions of power. Goldman Sachs is everywhere in the EU and American trained leaders are in position all over Easter Europe. One EU journalist openly admitted that many journalists in the EU are getting instructions from the US. The US noticed resistance in the EU and implemented a program to subvert the EU with substantial success.
Russia with Putin’s leadership is making a heroic effort to not fall into the trap set for it by the US in Ukraine and China is also showing caution but by its actions clearly understands that if Russia falls to the US then China will surrounded. I’m impressed that Russia and China are still trying to pull Germany and therefore the EU into a closer relationship with the East.
But let’s face the reality of the situation: the likelihood that the EU will substantially break with the US is near zero. Then what does this tell us? That in this US engineered Cold War v2 the US and EU will be on one side with Russia and China on the other side along with many SCO and BRIC members with them. It tells us to expect much more US engineered death and destruction. We should expect Russia and China to strengthen their militaries to be able to asymmetrically defeat the West.
The US is leading the West into a psychological regression. The Cold War mentality of the ‘exceptional and indispensable’ lunatics in the US are putting on a comfortable old coat without noticing it is dripping poison. Instead of realizing that the poison is in oneself the West projects it on the East. This explains the depravity and hatred of Russia we see in the Western media and from US officials in spite of any facts that contradict. It is a depravity that represses reflection and rational thinking.
As an old one-time anti-communist Cold War warrior I repudiate that mentality and will not accept it. I will not cloak myself in it again. I see through its lies. I cannot accept that my children will have to grow up (if we survive) with the bomb over their heads like I did for forty-four years until 1990. I cannot accept that millions more will die until the US is exhausted or defeated. But I also know that there is little that I can do to change the direction of the titanic currents of history that are playing out in our time.
As an Armenian-American I appreciate your article. I am also worried about poisonous Nuland influence in Armenia and the region.
I would add that I agree that Nuland is a soldier for Obama, but Obama is just the current fool occupying the White House that is a puppet of the US Deep State. The latter is not affected by our democratic institutions, the left/right divide, democrats or republicans, liberals or conservatives. The US Deep State is an ‘exceptional and indispensable’ agent of lunatic attitudes like another people that thought they were ‘uber alles’.
