TEN FACTS about Cold War, Bretton Woods, US dollar, NATO and Pentagon everyone should know!

Ten facts about Cold War, Bretton Woods, US dollar, NATO and Pentagon everyone should know! 

1. As soon as WWII was over, the new Cold War was initiated by US and UK against Russia/Soviet Union following the nuclear ‘stick’ demo (as Truman called it) via the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and the Fulton speech by Churchill.

2. That’s on the surface. The truth beneath it: Cold War was started by US/UK because USSR refused to ratify the Bretton Woods Accord. Bretton Woods sanctified the future global dollar dominance and established IMF, thus creating current US-dollar-based neo-colonial system.

3. Warsaw Pact (Treaty for Friendship, Co-operation, and Mutual Assistance), created by the USSR in response to NATO and Cold War, was disbanded BEFORE the USSR fell apart. NATO not only didn’t disband after Cold War was over, but kept expanding to Russia’s borders.

4. USSR was instrumental in reuniting Germany. Russian troops LEFT East Germany in 1989 – again, well before the collapse of the USSR! AMERICAN troops occupy ALL of Germany to this day!

5. Two solemn promises were made by Bush Sr. and his cronies to Gorbachev and Russia: 1. NATO will never expand into Eastern Europe; 2. Unified Germany will not be a part of NATO. BOTH PROMISES WERE PROMPTLY BROKEN AND CONTINUE BEING BROKEN EVERY DAY!

6. US is, and always was (together with UK), the driving force behind NATO. Many Western European countries complain about the pressure US applies to elicit their participation in military conflicts around the world. That’s not to say EU countries don’t have their own ulterior motives, but the driving force, the glue keeping this aggressive alliance together is undeniably Washington.

7. Since WWII, US bombed over 30 countries. Here is an incomplete list. The country missing is Iraq in 2003-present (including the current ISIS-related bombings). Syria is under constant threat of being bombed by US and NATO. US regularly conducts several wars at once in different parts of the globe.

8. Presently, US troops are stationed in 150 countries and cover 75% of the planet. Video by RT.

9. US military budget is MORE than military budgets of all other countries on planet Earth combined.

10. The US-dollar-based neo-colonialism is maintained by three forces whose illegal activities aren’t even concealed any more: 1) US army and the threat of US force; 2) Economic sabotage and blackmail of those countries that dare to conduct independent policy; 3) Clandestine operations, including: NSA surveillance gathering dirt on world’s politicians to later blackmail them, false flags, color revolutions, and CIA black ops.

CONCLUSIONS

At this time, NATO, and its driving force, USA, has the ambition of absorbing the former Soviet republics such as Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, thus attempting to surround Russia with NATO bases located in Russia’s backyard. It is universally known that NATO bases so near Russia’s borders destroy the balance of power in Europe, threatening Russia directly.

Conflicts in Ukraine, and earlier in 2008 in Georgia, were instigated and supported by the US/EU specifically to try to tilt the balance of power further in their favor. In their clandestine attempts to weaken and destroy Russia, they use local ultra-nationalist/fascist forces with grudges against Russia.

It is well-known that US never won a war since WWII, and even that one was won practically single-handedly by the USSR, while US mostly tagged along. On the other hand, Russia practically never lost a war – the exception is the financial Cold War, in which Russia was simply swindled.

The conclusions here are very important! From the above we can conclude that US/UK are very good at swindling and at using others as cannon fodder. Consequently: NATO expansion is dangerous primarily for the gullible countries of Europe, Ukraine and Georgia. Europeans should have already learned their lessons from past experiences. Will they ever?

P.S. Interesting bit: former US-installed president of Georgia Saakashvili, infamous for attacking South Ossetia, which resulted in South Ossetia together with Abkhazia seceding, has been sentenced in his country in absentia for treason, embezzlement and exceeding authority. International warrant has been issued for his arrest. Saakashvili is presently residing in Brooklyn and US refuses to give him up. However, they do keep him on a short leash as his application for permanent residency has been so far denied. It certainly would have been too obvious if they did approve his permanent residency.

On a separate note, Saakashvili is ‘plotting his triumphant return’ to Georgia not from just anywhere, but from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Any New Yorker would have a good laugh at this, I am sure. Williamsburg is not what I’d call a sexy place to be. It’s a very traditional Hasidic Jewish neighborhood, with bizarre outfits and 10 kids per family… Does that mean his US handlers aren’t paying him enough for a decent place, or is it easier to be invisible? I can certainly think of a number of reasons why he would be hiding there.

Present rulers of Ukraine may want to take good notice of the above.

Clandestine US Wars: Operation #GladioB by Sibel Edmonds and James Corbett

Clandestine US Wars – Operation Gladio B

In this post I’ve collected the best pieces of the puzzle for the mysterious Operation Gladio used by the US for many years in clandestine war against USSR and socialist countries. The whistle on #Gladio and #GladioB was blown by the FBI’s Sibel Edmonds, who was originally from Iran and Turkey and who specialized in the Middle East during her FBI tenure. After the end of the Soviet Union, all these rogues, militants, sociopaths, Turkish and Central Asian mafia godfathers – “babas,” employed and financed by the US, have been re-tooled and re-branded to be used: 1. in the manufactured “war on terror” 2. to try and destabilize US rivals: Russia and China.

For my childhood Cold War memories that compliment what Sibel is saying + my analysis of Why Russia isn’t playing the card of knowledge re. Gladio A and B? – scroll down to Part 3! 

James Corbett on RT’s Breaking the Set – Gladio B primer:

Sibel Edmonds on Gladio B – Part 2

Sibel Edmonds on Gladio B – Part 3

In this part Sibel talks about Turkish generals and colonels defecting to Russia and the implications thereof, namely that Russia is fully aware of Gladio and other US operations, including the foreign nature of the Chechen militants who were trained and implanted in Russia by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and US. Sibel expresses puzzlement why Russia is not using “the knowledge card.”

My Cold War childhood memories growing up in Odessa, USSR: I grew up in Odessa, which is across from Turkey on the Black Sea. I remember vividly from my early years during the Cold War days how we had military watch towers all over the coast. You go to the beach and from the corner of your eye you always see a watch tower. One summer, when I was 6 or 7, my relatives and I went to the beach around midnight to celebrate a family reunion, and before we knew it, we were blinded by giant projectors as people with dogs and guns appeared out of nowhere. We always lived with an implied “veiled threat from Turkey,” which at the time served as the unsinkable carrier and a secret US/NATO base in constant clandestine Western war against Russia. Turkey essentially was a corrupt country with no identity, serving the US lap dog role (unfortunately it still does). In Odessa, we had plenty of spy scandals – spies were actually caught on the beach attempting to infiltrate the Soviet Union. They would be caught straight in their diving suits having crossed the Odessa Bay underwater from a US or Turkish sub positioned in neutral waters. So, those watch towers did their job very well, and what Sibel talks about rings true on many levels.

Why is Russia ‘not playing this card,’ as Sibel puts it? Sibel may know the Middle East, but I know Russia. Russia IS playing the card of knowledge of what’s happening. They just do it smartly. They don’t make a noise because they have ongoing operations. Why would they announce what they are doing? To alert terrorists so they could escape? Russia also plays this card with the US, but behind the scenes, which is very astute. How – it’s complicated. But suffice it to say that we’ll be seeing more and more of shrinking US influence and more of rising Russian influence in Eurasia and all over the world. This is my prediction.

Mass Economic Collapse and Dissolution of the West Explained by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Mass Economic Collapse Explained in this March, 2013 interview. Includes Cyprus situation. Interview with Infowars Alex Jones.

The Dissolution of the West. Civil liberties being destroyed. Militarization of Police. Social and Economic dispossession, transformation of US society, destruction of the currency, military-industrial-security complex, Monsanto and much more…  Interview with James Corbett of Corbett Report and GRTV

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts Interview 2013: Syria, NSA, Economic Collapse, WWIII

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Reagan’s Asst Treasury Secretary and Father of Reaganomics talks about Syria, NSA scandal, Economic Collapse, and more! This interview predates Putin’s NY Times op-ed development, but the info and opinions are very valuable.

Highlights:

Assad’s usage of chemical weapons when he is winning is nonsense. Syrian rebels are non-Syrian Islamist mercenaries, they are imports. The plan was to use NATO puppet states to bomb Syria.

United Nations cannot prevent the invasion as the UN is no longer an independent voice. It has been dependent on US financing since the collapse of the Soviet Union and is no longer a viable international body.

Russia and China were fooled with Lybia, but they are not fooled about Syria. USA is trying to surround Russia and China with military bases and take away China’s oil and gas sources. Lybia debacle was demaging to China.

Confirmed False flag: Iraq and Gulf of Tonkin. Recent False Flag terrorist attacks? Western media is the Ministry of Propaganda.

Why did US hate Hugo Chavez of Venezuela?

US military-industrial complex wants WWIII: “what good are nuclear weapons if you don’t use them?” Kennedy was being pushed to attack Russia and was called a coward when he didn’t. Russia and China have to be more active in opposing US aggression.

Where is the US economy headed?

And much more…

Boston Marathon Bombing: GOLD TRAIN Deja Vu?

Remember how a few months ago a meteor exploded above Chelyabinsk in the Ural Mountains, Russia? It happened shortly after the release of my visionary fantasy/thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER, and much like it was described in the book. Many readers had dubbed the book prophetic. Read more about THE EARTH SHIFTER.

Check out the post and eyewitness videos: The Earth Shifter Plot Playing out in Real Time: Massive Meteor Rocks Russia

I feel a similar sense of Deja Vu with the recent Boston Marathon bombing.

GT COVER ebookThe mystery/thriller GOLD TRAIN is based on famous historical events of 1918, but it is set in today’s Moscow, St. Petersburg and New York. The protagonist, international journalist Jade Snow, who’s used to dodging stray bullets in Iraq, rushes into marriage and has a child before she is ready, and as a result, she has to say a premature good bye to a promising career. While Jade stays home with the baby, her husband jet sets around the world (hint: his career is fine). But Jade’s ever present longing for freedom and world adventures generates a subconscious rebellion, so when she finally gets a chance to go to Russia in order to investigate tantalizing mystery of the missing treasure of the Russian Empire, she lands herself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to change the balance of power not only in Russia, but also in the world, and in the process, she meets a mysterious stranger, who may well change her life forever.

The conspirators are the Russian monarchists, backed in secret by spy organizations like CIA and MI6. And while preparing to destabilize Russia through civil war, they employ Chechen terrorists to do their dirty work, including attempts of deadly bombings at the Russian Metro, high-speed train, and other places (incidentally, it is mentioned in the book that Chechens, wanted for terrorist activities in Russia, are often given political asylum in the USA, UK and Sweden). While looking for the killer of her Russian friend and hunting for the treasure, Jade along with the FSB operative Alexei, must prevent terrorist attacks by the Chechen militants.

Boston bombing: First, my deepest condolences to all the victims of this tragedy, and to their families.

It turns out that the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing are the Tsarnaev brothers, aged 19 and 26, residents of Cambridge, MA, and immigrants from North Caucasus. Ethnically Chechen, their family resided in the Autonomous Republic of Dagestan, neighboring Chechnya. In fairness, I need to point out that some suspect a false flag operation in the hunt for the Tsarnaev brothers. However, I am not prone to conspiracy theories. Conspiracies happen all the time, yes – as you would see if you read my books. But conspiracies I write about are based on proven real world events. In this case, I have no proof of false flag, although voices in its favor persist. Either way, so far there isn’t enough information to make such a conclusion – yet.

After the collapse of the USSR in 1991 the always stormy and confrontational North Caucasus, populated by many warring tribes, where a child would receive a knife as a birthday present at 2, reverted to its nature. With no jobs for the young and no government controls, fundamentalist Islam, terrorism and Al Queda influence spread like fire. In the past 5-7 years, Chechnya has actually stabilized as the Russian government poured billions into this little autonomous republic in order to rebuild the industry and generate jobs in this beautiful, but unstable and depressive region. After the peace was finally restored and the population turned away from terrorism, the remnants of the “rebels” had crossed the porous borders into the nearby autonomous republics, notably, Dagestan, where they would hide out in the mountains.

The FBI has now admitted that the brothers may have had links to Russia’s most wanted man, Chechen terrorist Doku Umarov, who has blood of many civilians on his hands, including the deadly Beslan School bombing. Many of his cronies received asylum in the UK, US, etc., after their terrorist acts in Russia. It is a well-known fact that Doku Umarov’s fighters received training in Al Queda camps in the Middle East and parts so Europe. However, over the years, Russian requests for extradition of said terrorists had been routinely denied by the USA, UK, Sweden and Poland, despite irrefutable evidence of their terrorist activities. Take a close look at Mr. Suleimanov, the leader of the Chechen terrorists in GOLD TRAIN – look familiar?

According to correspondent/author Pepe Escobar, “Chechnya’s new jihadis want an emirate, as envisioned by Doku Umarov; a Chechnya-istan modeled on the Talibanistan of the late 1990s. Umarov always insists on global jihad – from Afghanistan and Iraq to Somalia and Palestine – against “everyone who wages war against Islam and Muslims.” Just as I have met a lot of Chechens fighting alongside the Taliban – and then captured in Afghanistan before 9/11 – there are quite a few Chechens in Syria as part of a global jihadi brigade fighting the Bashar Assad government in Aleppo. Chechens did hit soft targets in the past; it could be two Dagestani female suicide bombers blowing up the Moscow Metro in 2010, killing at least 40 people and injuring 100, or the gory outcome of the Beslan school tragedy in 2004, when no less than 334 hostages died, most of them children.” Escobar, The Boston Blowback

The incredible irony of the situation is that the Boston bombing suspects, brothers Tsarnaev, upon arrival to the USA, claimed and quickly received POLITICAL ASYLUM together with their relatives. They arrived to the USA in 2003, claiming to be refugees from Chechnya, although at the time their family lived in the neighboring Dagestan. They were still children and grew up in the USA, attending American schools, the younger of the two becoming a naturalized citizen, and winning a scholarship to MIT (according to reports).  Another unbelievable irony is that several years prior, Russian authorities had contacted the USA, warning of possible older brother’s links to Al Queda and Doku Umarov, and demanding investigation. At the time, FBI scuffed at Russia’s warnings, as the US and UK insisted on calling the Chechen terrorists “freedom fighters.”

I guess, now that it has happened in the USA, the “Chechen freedom fighters” will be finally re-branded terrorists. Isn’t that amazing! Kinda makes you wonder when will the childish, ignorant and backwards political rivalries with Russia and other countries designated as “enemies” by the USA finally stop, and when will justice and reason finally prevail?

In fairness, I have to mention two things:

1. Most ethnic Chechens and Dagestanis are peaceful and law-abiding citizens of Russia, who want to live their lives and build a good future for their kids. Incidentally, most of the wrestlers on the Russian Olympic team, responsible for many of the Russian medals at the last Olympics in London, come from North Caucasus. Alas, as always, a few rotten apples spoil the harvest.

2. Also, the suspects’ parents still reside in the Autonomous Republic of Dagestan, Russia, and they deny their children’s involvement in the bombing, claiming it was a set up by the FBI. The story is getting more and more bizarre by the moment. Included are some investigative and eye-witness videos. Have a listen!
