REPORT! US Recognizes Defeat in Afghanistan but Tries to Gain New Foothold in Central Asia! Danger or Opportunity for Russia & China? + NEW BIG PERIOD 9 PREDICTIONS for UK, RUSSIA & CHINA!!
COMPLETE REPORT AVAILABLE ON LADA RAY PATREON!
The report includes a number of maps, to help follow the fast-changing kaleidoscope of events!
Michael Kovacic: Fantastic one, just like a briefing
SOME BRIEF EXCERPTS!
We discuss US, Russia, UK, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan & China!
As the US announces its Afghanistan withdrawal, first thing that jumps at me is the exact repeat of the pattern the USSR displayed before its collapse. As they say, ‘Afghanistan is where empires go to die.’ Dark, but so far historically has been proven true.
A MORE DETAILED, ADDITIONAL PREDICTION & INTEL ABOUT THE UK!
But as you know, the UK is the WESTERNMOST tip of Europe and Eurasia, and it is a historic embodiment of the ‘WEST’ as a notion. Therefore, per my original predictions, its PERIOD 9 will be quite problematic and no matter what they do, the loss of relevancy and Great Rebalancing will be felt in the UK very dramatically.
NEW PREDICTIONS IN REGARDS TO RUSSIA AND CHINA!
However, some small harm and irritation the UK will be able to cause. But this could be good for China, but especially Russia.
Why? Because the UK and US (and West in general) are supposed to play the role of the GREAT AGITATORS! This is necessary because Russia – the YIN/YANG Balancer wants to keep the status quo, aka, balance, and that could lead to complacency. In Russia’s case it has led to complacency in the past that cost dearly.
Of course, now Russia will be doing it differently, demanding accountability of the local elites, who are used to tremendous corruption.
How much Russia subsidized many of the exes during the USSR – it’s mindboggling! I’ll share a very telling statistics of how the exes overconsumed and underproduced, while Russians under-consumed and overproduced in order to give to the republics. This info will be in WEBINAR 21: THE TRUTH ABOUT THE USSR!
Central Asia was always a weak link and it was always turbulent. But it’s literally the center of Eurasia, and only by Russia controlling it (maybe together with China) is it possible to build a unified Eurasia and the Silk Roads of tomorrow!
Make no mistake, this usually forgotten region – the weak link of Eurasia – plays a crucial role in the Great Rebalancing!

How Did Outnumbered Russian Military Police Unit Repel Al-Nusra Ambush in Idlib, Syria? Plus, Putin’s Middle East Revelations
Just to revisit the infamous recent provocation by the USA’s pocket terrorists against Russia in Syria. This brings back memories of the 1980s Afghanistan… And it also brings the memories of WWII, WWI and the provocation that were the two 1917 Russian revolutions and following 1918-20 Civil War.
Those far away memories are not mine, but generations before me — those who chose to remember the truth. It is disturbing how easily humans in general choose to forget and to subscribe to the official view of history and reality, no matter how twisted and how untruthful.
But this time it’s different, Russia is very different, and Putin is far from Gorby, Yeltsin or Tsar Nicholas II. (You can learn all this, and much, much more in THE PUTIN ENIGMA.)
This is a compilation of short videos, with Eng Subs, describing the event, as well as Russia’s true role and true victories in Syria, which are silenced in the West. The compilation includes Putin’s prophetic words about Syria and the Middle East.
Lada Ray’s unique multidimensional perspective, with forbidden history & forbidden linguistics twists; higher dimensional revelations and quantum calibrations; the real roles of Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Nicholas II, Lenin, Stalin, Dmitry Medvedev, Vladimir Putin and Russia The Great Balancer — are all revealed in:

Are We About to Witness Another US Failure in the Middle East? ISIS Theatens to Blow Up Syria’s Strategic Dam
Are we about to witness yet another US failure in the Middle East?
ISIS holes up at Tabqa Dam to avoid airstrikes and to blackmail US if they attempt to take Raqqa!
Part of ISIS – Daesh has holed up at Tabqa, Syria’s strategically most important dam, where they use high value hostages to shield themselves from bombings. The dam, if breached, will flood and devastate large parts of eastern Syria, creating massive humanitarian disaster for this long-suffering country.
Remember my prediction in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER? US would do everything to avoid colliding with Russia in Syria. This prediction is now playing out.
Russia primarily covers Syria’s long Mediterranean coast, up to the Turkish border. It is along the coast where the capital Damascus, Assad government, most of the population and Russian base are located. Slowly but surely, the territory controlled by Assad is expanding, thanks to Russian air support and efforts of Syrian army.
Important Syria update for the readers of Earth Shift Reports!
The newest stats from Russian analysts are:
Assad army numbers: 200-250 thousand troops, including various local self-defence and international volunteer units.
All armed opposition, including ISIS, Al Nusra, Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, etc., numbers 150,000. This number also includes what US insists is ‘moderate armed opposition.’ However, by all accounts, real bandits and militants change coloring depending on who pays more at any given moment, or to save their lives: today they are Al Nusra, and tomorrow – ‘moderate opposition.’ In reality, political opposition in Syria doesn’t have serious military muscle, while the majority of those who have aren’t moderate.
There is a small quantity of ‘moderate’ bands that decided to cooperate and are now sending intel to Russians and Syrian army as to the locations of ISIS/Al Nusra and others. Such turncoats, per Russian military, are one of the best sources of ground intel for their operations.
The above numbers don’t take into account the significant factor of the Kurds. The Kurds in all this have been a neutral force, concentrating on defending their own land, but not interfering in the general Assad vs. opposition fight. However, the Kurds have reached the autonomy agreement with Assad and now are gearing towards siding with him – as I predicted in SYRIA GAME CHANGER! This is a very hopeful development. However, Turkey/Erdogan are trying to sabotage it by insisting on excluding the Kurds from the Assad – opposition negotiations process.
For an in-depth look into all the above, read ESRs: SYRIA GAME CHANGER and TURKISH CONUNDRUM – links to both at the bottom of this article!
USA in Syria
When US realized they had to get in before the victory over ISIS was claimed without their participation, they concentrated on plans to capture Raqqa, the so-called capital of ISIS, located inland, in the eastern part of Syria, where Russian aviation and Syrian army haven’t reached yet.
It has to be noted that, according to Syrian government sources, Syrian army is now only 40 km away from Raqqa and is planning to take it soon. However, it is common knowledge that Syrian army is tired and is moving slower than Russians would like them to. At least they are moving, taking over town after town, under the Russian Airforce’s cover.
In the situation when Russians said they definitely would NOT put any troops on the ground, US announced that it would increase support for local resistance in order to capture Raqqa. The resistance they are talking about are non-ISIS militants and Syrian opposition. Per reports, they also began helping the Kurds, who really are the only well-organized force in the area, able to resist ISIS.
Most interestingly, US announced they would be sending American ground troops as well.
There is talk of 100,000 coalition troops, consisting of 10,000 American; the rest is supposedly from SA, Qatar and other USA’s Middle Eastern allies, although there is much doubt as to how they will fill the quota (I described the whole spread and doubts surrounding this issue in SYRIA GAME CHANGER). The whole thing resembles more of a PR noise than the real thing. This reminds me of how an animal or a bird, when threatened, puffs up fur or feathers to seem bigger.
The latest announcement from the US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter: US is sending one of its divisions with substantial Iraq experience. It appears the division he’s referring to had previously sustained heavy losses in Iraq. Is that what Carter means by experience?
So, the ‘Nobel Peace Prize Laureate’ Barack Obama is sending American troops to yet another country, but only after Russian Airforce and Syrian army did most of the work.
The irony isn’t lost on anyone. The whole thing reminds me – a painful similarity noted by many analysts – of 1944, when USA hastily opened the second front, but only after it became clear that Russians could easily roll through all of Europe, claiming single-handed WWII victory.
In this case, US is too late to the strategically important Mediterranean coast, where 70-80% of the population resides, where Assad government is located and where the ports and bases are. The coast is covered by S-400 and Russian Airforce.
On the other hand, Raqqa, located deep inside the country, controls Syrian oil fields. While Russian bombings destroyed a large number of ISIS oil fields, pipelines, oil depots and oil convoys to Turkey, there are some oil fields that still remain around Raqqa. US, together with Qatar and Saudis, will try to prevent the area from reverting to Assad government; they want to attempt establishing their control over these fields.
Additional reason for targeting Raqqa is to save face – after all, Raqqa is the supposed ‘capital’ of ISIL, even if it’s just in their warped imagination. This, again reminds me of WWII and 1945: couldn’t take Berlin back then – let’s at least take Raqqa, before Russians and Syrian army get there.
With this cowboy logic US may cause yet another disaster in the Middle East — as if Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, the creation of Al Qaeda and the very ISIS itself weren’t enough! The list can be expanded well beyond the Middle East – look at the disaster US interference created in Ukraine within just two short years! Everyone knows what US had done to Vietnam in the ’60s.
The list can be expanded far beyond these vivid examples, and I’m sure you all know dozens of other US-created disasters. The trail of direct and collateral damage follows USA wherever they show up.
ISIS has holed up at the dam not just to avoid bombings. This is a very smart, if morbid, blackmail. They threaten to blow up the dam and kill hostages, if Raqqa is taken. The result will be further devastation of Syria.
Let’s see if US has enough wisdom and military know-how to avoid yet another regional disaster of their making!
Judging by their past failures, don’t hold your breath… Unless they give up and ask Russians for help, but don’t hold your breath for that either as this again will mean losing face.
However, this situation does give Russia some negotiations advantage, and not only in Syria; in Ukraine and Caucasus as well.
Read about Syria, US, Russia, Turkey, Qatar, Saudis, Israel — all the games & players:
The upcoming ESRs:
will expand further on the convoluted and volatile situation in the interconnected regions of the Black Sea/ Balkans/ Eastern Europe/ Caucasus and the Middle East.
Stay tuned for the ESR release announcements!

Flashback! Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq One Year Before Invasion
Not that it’s a shocking bit of news for anyone who is in the know (this certainly includes my readers), but it’s still noteworthy from the following standpoint: something that you and I have known for a long time is finally making its way into the Western mainstream media.
Imagine that! They are really, really slow (not to mention corrupt) – isn’t it why so many people are turning away from Western MSM? However, the very fact that this is coming to the spotlight in the mainstream is a good sign.
The truth will continue surfacing throughout this decade and next, and deliberately distorted history will slowly but surely continue being righted. Humanity needs to go through the cleansing and karmic re-balancing. There really isn’t any way around it; this is the only way for human civilization to shed its past and move forward.
These are two reports from RT, truly the only trustworthy English-speaking MSM our there. RT is a new, revolutionary wave of the MSM. It is an alternative MSM for the truth-seekers and it also has Russian, Spanish, Arabic and other language news. (I have various RT links on my RESOURCES page for your convenience).
RT: News of leaked memos indicating that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had already agreed to work with the George W. Bush Administration on the invasion of Iraq long before it began has been less than a shock to many people. Stephen Zunes, a major critic of the Bush administration and professor of politics and international studies at the University of San Francisco, offers his view as to why public reaction has been so tepid and what the invasion was really about.
RT: Leaked memos show that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair was fully onboard with the George W. Bush administration with regard to the invasion of Iraq a full year before the war began. Manila Chan speaks with investigative journalist Russ Baker about the fallout from this leak and how policy leading to the invasion developed during the run up to the war.
So, it’s in the mainstream. The Bush – Blair Collusion on Regime Change in Iraq took place at least one year before Iraq invasion – and I would say much earlier than that!
It was done with participation and full knowledge of then US Secretary of State, Gen. Colin Powell, who afterwords tried to convince the UN that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, while parading fake proofs and equally fake maps. Colin Powell later said he was duped and mislead into thinking the proof was real, which lead him to deliver that fake UN speech. With these new revelations, it is confirmed what was long-suspected: Powell lied to everyone’s face when he said he didn’t know proofs were fake. The scandal led him eventually to resign and withdraw his presidential candidacy, costing him his highly cherished reputation and removal from public life.
I was somewhat familiar with Colin Powell – in the late ’90s I happened to work in Princeton with some of his associates. Incidentally, one of his people, who spent six months in the former Yugoslavia as a monitor during the civil war and subsequent US/EU bombing campaign, had admitted to me in a private conversation that what he saw on the ground and what US press and US government were saying had been two completely different things.
At the time, all the blame for war and atrocities in the former Yugoslavia was put 100% on Serbs. ‘The bad Serbs’ propaganda was necessary for Yugoslavia, the last remaining independent state in Europe, to be torn apart in the attempt to weaken and destroy Serbia. Even the core Serbian lands, such as Kosovo and Chernogoria (called in the West Montenegro) were taken away from them.
The reality I witnessed, had confided in me Colin Powell’s associate, was that they all had historic grudges against each other. They all were equally responsible for violence.
I knew all this very well, having grown up in Southern Europe and in the Slavic world. The long-brewing, but kept under the lid by the unified socialistic Yugoslavia, historic grudges ran deep. I knew why, how and when all those grudges came to be. For centuries Russia periodically played peacemaker in the region. It was in many ways similar to the atmosphere in Caucasus and all this was common knowledge where I came from. But convincing Americans of this was impossible in the 1990s. When I tried to write articles explaining the real situation, they were ALL rejected by any American MSM I attempted sending them to.
Alas, there was no Internet, no blogs and no websites in the 1990s. We were all held hostage to whatever agenda and lies they wanted to impose on us. In the ’90s I quickly got disenchanted with Western papers, magazines and TV and unsubscribed of all print, disconnecting cable TV by 2003.
I can’t stress enough how incredibly important it is to always keep a balanced perspective on things! Ironically, we have to be grateful primarily to the same USA for the mainstream Internet, YouTube, search engines and blogging platforms, such as WordPress. The Internet revolution became the Great Equalizer of the 21 Century, which allowed us all to read/watch/search for the truth, regardless of where we lived and what propaganda our local MSM imposed on us.
This fantastic breakthrough allowed people like myself, who had a lot of knowledge and truth to share, but who were shut up by MSM and existing prejudices, a platform to say what we wanted to say.
This is where USA, UK, as well all of the Anglo-American world, shine:
They can accomplish wonders when it’s necessary to turn something into a mainstream application, making it workable for the huge masses of people. This is a real, honest to goodness talent and contribution of the Anglo-American civilization to the human world.
If only they could learn to stick to using this god-given talent for good, instead of evil!
Actually, I think the fact that Western MSM is now losing readership/viewership daily is a well-deserved poetic justice and the long-earned karma in action.
Unless Western MSM of all breeds and colorings reinvent themselves, they will become extinct. The only way for them to reinvent themselves is to start telling the truth. But who are we kidding: those who control them can’t accept the truth… yet. One day they may be forced to, in order to survive. But it may be too late for what at this point in history we still refer to as ‘Western MSM.’
Incidentally, the truth about what really went on in Yugoslavia never came out of Colin Powell’s camp, despite their knowledge. Powell was at the time considered a war hero and a highly respected man of integrity. He had the people’s ear and he had infinitely more platform to make the truth heard than I did. It’s possible that if he shared with the world what his monitors knew about Yugoslavia, Serbian bombings wouldn’t have happened. Or at least, it would have been much more difficult to push them through without full public support.
That same ‘honorable’ Colin Powell saw it fit to spew lies to the UN later, when he became the US Secretary of State. For those who still have any illusions: this demonstrates very well who is in power in the US, no matter what party it is. It was true then and it’s true now. The same is true for the UK, with Blair in focus.
In the beginning of 2003 Colin Powell shook that fake proof at the UN and ardently tried to convince everyone that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that Iraq harbored Al Qaeda. Living in the US, I heard a lot of talk calling ‘to fu*k those UN, Russia, China and Germany’ (does that remind you of Nuland and her “fu*k EU outburst?). As a lot of those ‘American patriots’ put it, ‘let our boys go in and do their thing.’
The truth is that the US population at large fully supported Iraq invasion, considering their country exceptional, one and only beacon of democracy, and existing to do as they pleased without any regard for others’ needs or opinions. Hitler and his version of Germany once thought the same.
I recall that time very well – it was the time I woke up completely and shed any remaining illusions as to what kind of country I was living in. US continued attempting to sell Afghanistan and Iraq invasions as ‘one bundle purchase,’ using the pretext of the 9/11 as justification.
The world swallowed the earlier Afghanistan invasion, being still in shock after 9/11. People all over the world sympathised with the US, and this normal human sympathy in the wake of what was believed to be a terrible and unjustified tragedy inflicted by outside forces on the unsuspecting America, was exploited by the US to do their dirty bidding.
But the world drew the line at Iraq. UN Security Council members Russia and China vetoed US request to authorize its strike against Iraq. US faced strong resistance from allies: Germany, France and Middle Eastern countries. US began Iraq invasion anyway, fully supported by UK, Poland, (former Soviet republic of) Georgia and the ‘coalition of the willing’ consisting of everyone else whose arm US/UK were able to twist into submission.
We soon started finding out that Powell’s ‘proofs’ were fake, that 9/11 was an inside job and that US/UK harbored a long-term plan of invading and dismembering at least seven Middle Eastern states, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran and Syria. We all know what happened to Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. We also know why Iran and Syria are still surviving: because Russia has protected them.
There is always a seed of defeat in every victory and a seed of victory in every defeat. US thought it got away with murder.
But the US invasion of Iraq and the lies accompanying it, marked the beginning of a new era. It is the era of the all-encompassing Earth Shift of all geopolitical, societal and economic structures. It is the era of the awakening and coming to terms with the truth. Their lies woke up those people who refused to continue accepting the official Western propaganga, who began digging for and telling the truth through alternative sources, trying to awaken others.
This era, which we are living today, is the global revolutionary time, when everything old, outmoded, and un-truthful is swept away. The old will morph into something new and different, some countries will change borders and even names. New alliances will be formed and old will die off. A new social, financial and economic system will emerge. And with that, USA will lose much of today’s clout and power.

First, let me introduce you to this post on the Way of the Love Blog: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY APPALLING & AMERICANS, YOU NEED TO TAKE NOTE! In it, Nancy says:
“Russia, President Putin, and her people constructed this beautiful 100 ft. teardrop monument in memory of those killed on 9/11… shipped it to America in huge segments … the artist came too to oversee its compilation and erection … the Russian people paid for it out of private funds.
The Zionist controlled US media gives the beautiful memorial, dedicated by Putin, a total silent treatment. The monument is barely known, even among local residents of Bayonne [where it is located]! … The base of the monument is surrounded by a marble wall with the names of the 3000 victims engraved in alphabetical order.” IT WAS GIFT FROM RUSSIA ON THE 5TH ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11, THUS 2004, & AMERICANS STILL DON’T KNOW IT EXISTS!!!!!!
THIS IS AN ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE EXAMPLE OF HOW AMERICANS ARE MANIPULATED & MIND CONTROLLED!!!!”
Thanks, Nancy, for posting this, and for caring. I can add a few facts and thoughts.
The monument was constructed by Zurab Tsereteli. He is most known for the gigantic sculpture of Peter the Great standing on his ship on Moscow’s Moskva River embankment, also installed in the early 2000s. It is located across from the iconic Christ the Savior Cathedral, rebuilt in the 1990s. Christ the Savior is the seat of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Tsereteli is known for his gigantic works. Many at the time argued that the giant Peter statue, dwarfing nearby structures, was too huge and therefore would disrupt the carefully preserved historic skyline. However, after years of argument it has become a well-recognized integral part of Moscow. Something similar once happened to the Eiffel Tower.
Living and working between NYC and NJ, I knew about the sculpture being sent to the US as a gift. The problems started right away. New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani didn’t want to accept the gift, saying there was no place to put it. Some were saying the monument was ugly. I am looking at it and I am very sensitive to any ugliness or falsehood. I do not see anything objectionable in it. I actually think it’s very appropriate for the occasion. However, the debates went on and finally they decided to place it on the NJ side’s river bank, overlooking Manhattan. As Nancy pointed out, the place is such that it’s absolutely hidden from view from any roads and it’s not marked on any maps. Most of NJ is gentrified and very expensive, except a few depressed slums, industrial and highly polluted areas. The city of Bayonne is one of those areas, polluted since early industrial age. The impression was that they hid the monument in a place where they knew no one would go, on a piece of land that was basically worthless (well, they did clean it up a little to install the monument).
I would venture to say that the US attitude at the time towards the Russian people’s sincere gift was one of those last straws that eventually broke the camel’s back. Such attitude convinced even the most naive Russians that there was no way of reasoning with the US.
Incidentally, after 9/11, Putin was the first head of state who called Bush to express his condolences for the loss of life. Very few remember this, but that was the time when Putin was trumpeted in the US media is something akin to the messiah of Russia and American elites’ best friend. Keep reading to find out why it was and what happened next.
At the time, I worked at one of Smith Barney’s branches in NJ. I had a lot of clients and friends who were directly or indirectly touched by the 9/11 tragedy. For us it wasn’t just something in the news – we lived it, and my memory is still vivid.
As a matter of fact, the morning of 9/11 I was supposed meet with a client, whose office was in the former Century 21 building (those who are familiar with pre-9/11 New York would know what I am talking about). It was a building directly across the street from the Twin Towers. I was supposed to meet with her at 9 am. She cancelled the day before, saying she needed to fix some problems at home. She didn’t show for work and I didn’t take the Path Train, which terminated in the basement of the Twin Towers. We both avoided a very close brush with 9/11.
I remember how after the tragedy we all felt sorrowful and indignant at the nonsensical loss of life and destruction in the heart of New York, where till then we all felt safe.
For years, I couldn’t look in the direction where Twin Towers used to be. Walking anywhere in Manhattan where before I’d have a view of the towers, I would purposefully look the other way. Only once I went to the vicinity of Ground Zero. Despite all the usual surrounding noise and Manhattan’s frantic traffic, the place was filled with eerie energetic silence. The energy there was dark and dense with sorrow, as if all life was sucked out of it. I never since went back and told my client that we could meet anywhere else but there.
The place has since been re-built, but I still avoid it. There is nothing for me there; nothing is left of the place I remember. To give you an idea, the calibration of the 9/11 Ground Zero area is presently: 85 – grief.
At the time, for work I still watched CNBC and followed other financial MSM. After Putin came out with his condolences, CNBC hosts were saying, ‘This guy is just brilliant, he doesn’t miss a beat.’ Putin was en vogue on Wall Street and those who pulled the strings actually thought they had just acquired one more willing American vassal.
I know for a fact that Putin and Russians felt very sincere sympathy towards the American people after 9/11, having perceived it as a real terrorist attack. As usual for Russians, they attempted to establish a bridge based on common interests – fighting terrorism.
Russia at the time just started recovering after the tragic and debilitating civil war in Chechnya, which only Putin was able to turn around. It was well-known that Al Qaeda and imported Islamic extremists were behind most terrorist acts Russia went through at the time. They honestly thought that Russia and US could be allies in fighting the mushrooming global terrorism. Putin tried to extend a hand and make a sincere gesture.
Of course, Russian leadership knew that US was in fact behind the creation and financing of these Islamic extremist organizations that infiltrated Caucasus to wreak havoc. But it was hoped at the time that since US also suffered a terrorist attack, it would influence the US leadership to change their mind against continuing to vilify Russia; that it would redirect bylateral relations towards cooperating in the fight against Islamic terrorism.
This goal was partially achieved. After 9/11 and sympathetic Russian response, US had no choice but to stop trumpeting Chechen terrorists as freedom fighters, and began labeling them as terrorists.
As a result of the US support withdrawal, terrorist acts in Caucasus and elsewhere in Russia slowly diminished and almost disapeared in time. This essentially confirmed for everyone how much such extremist organizations rely on US support. It also confirmed that without US support they couldn’t exist in the magnitude we are observing now.
Of course, later it came out that the whole 9/11 thing was an inside job created in order to drag the populations of US, UK and the West into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If US was able to sneak in Afghanistan invasion when the world was still in shock over 9/11, the Iraq caused huge resistance all over the world. The US went in anyway, thus completely destroying the international relations checks and balances of the past 50+ years. It went into Iraq over the objections of the UN, Security Council veto, and protests of its own allies.
The entire plan for the Middle East blitzkrieg takeover, akin to the German Nazi Plan Barbarossa, included 7 countries. If you recall, I once posted a video of how US Gen. Wesley Clark revealed this plan in 2007. I also had a later video with the same Gen. Clark being very tight-lipped when asked about it. I remember thinking at the time that they got to him. I recently heard the same Gen. Clark saying just the opposite of what he used to say. Perhaps, Gen. Clark got his price.
Both videos are here: Vladimir Putin’s Message: Part 2
What were the 7 countries US was supposed to invade to ensure its continuing world dominance? These included: Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia and Sudan.
The Middle East was sent the message: either submit and stay obedient slaves of the US, or you will be conquered. However, not all went according to plan. Some of the obedient Western vassals, such as France and Germany, became squeamish, so the ‘coalition of the willing’ turned out a little skimpy.
But most importantly, there was the factor of Russia and Putin. Putin played it perfectly, by being a good boy the West would love… until his power in the country consolidated, and Russia got strong enough.
People often ask me how and why did they let Putin come to power and stay in power, if he was such a threat to them? The answer in short: they simply didn’t see it coming. This was the brilliance of Putin and those who brought him to power – they counted on the outward appearances being such as to fool their adversaries, until it was time for Putin to act.
Those who aren’t very profound thinkers mistook that for Putin being part of NWO. This hoax had been circulating till very recently, until I dispelled it in IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?
This is the answer in short. The long and much deeper answer is coming in the THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
THE PUTIN ENIGMA Earth Shift Report is coming later in the year (Sorry everyone for the delay. It takes a long time to mastermind and write any Earth Shift Report. It’s partially done. I will finish it as soon as I have a long enough stretch of time to do so).
The Middle East was and continues being one of the two most important geopolitical pressure points of our planet, the other one being the Black Sea/Ukraine/Eastern Mediterranean area. Both fault lines are located next to each other, overlapping and interacting closely.
While the Middle East is mainly about oil, containing of China and Russia, and creating as much chaos as possible on the planet, the Black Sea-Eastern Mediterranean stretch is about the dominion over Europe, attempting to weaken and destroy Russia and Russia’s allies, preventing China from building the New Silk Road, as well as European gas and oil arteries.
The fight over lifelines (the old trade routes are now the pipelines) going through these same areas is very old. Both pressure points are about the life or death of the dollar-based system and about who will control Eurasia. Because, as we know, he who controls Eurasia, controls the world.
I said this before and I’ll say it again: This is why it is absolutely crucial for Eurasia to unite. It is only because of petty resentments and divisions that they are able to manipulate people into wars. People cannot be manipulated when they calibrate on the level 200 or better. Manipulation becomes a non-issue when anger, jealousy and resentment in human relations are discarded, being replaced with cooperation, good will, acceptance and reason.

Democracy and the Roots of Terrorism. Nikolay Starikov’s Talk in Bratislava, Slovakia. Встреча с общественностью Братиславы
Jan. 9, 2014. Democracy and the roots of terrorism.
A very informative new talk by Nikolay Starikov in Bratislava, Slovakia. (In Russian).
Unfortunately, I only have this supremely interesting talk in Russian. If I find an English version, I’ll post it as well, as this is one of the most lucid, well thought out, and profound lectures on the subject of state sponsored terrorism and geopolitics I’ve ever seen.
I’ll mention one point from the lecture: a couple of Russian rocket scientists, who were passing through town and who worked on a classified project, had died as a result of the recent double terrorist act in Volgograd, Russia. This fact, as far as I know, was never mentioned in the Western press and avoided in the Russian press. These deaths led the author to believe that the so called “random” terrorist acts in Volgograd weren’t that random. The target of the first one at the train station were the scientists, and the second one, in a trolleybus, was done to make the whole thing seem random, and to obscure the fact that the targets were he aforementioned Russian scientists. Who benefits from the deaths of these scientists? This is the question to ask.
