NATO expansion encloses Russia.
In order to understand the crisis in Ukraine, it is crucial to grasp the key players and plans in the global chess game. In the last hundred years, the world has been dominated by the Anglo-American imperium. The British “Great Game” of keeping Russia at bay was a torch passed on to the American establishment following the Bolshevik Revolution (sponsored by Western banks, including in particular Paul Warburg), as the British shadow establishment contented itself by ruling America from afar, through its Pratt House and Council on Foreign Relations versions of the Royal Society Round Table. From this behemoth came the OSS and CIA, as well as covert support for Sovietism as I’ve demonstrated here from the CFR’s own history.
Britain thus pioneered the practice of containment, strategy of tension, and overt infiltration and subversion of Russia through its own exported Kulturkampf, Marxism. As Russian civilization labored under the burden of Sovietism, the West enlisted its best and brightest in a great propaganda campaign known as the Cold War. While existing as something real on one level, at a higher level, the goal was always convergence between the West and the East, as the polar opposites merged into a single globo-state, merging the worst of the communist and capitalist systems. The Cold War therefore allowed the western military industrial complex the onus to work towards its grand project: the great Skynet/DARPA grid that would come online as a result of endless black budget funding from covert projects. For proof of this, one need look no further than the computer screen in front them, wired to the internet – DARPA’s master creation. As DARPA’s own history shows, the creation of the Internet was always a spying masterplan of the western military industrial intelligence establishment through Harvard, RAND, AT&T, Xerox, the NSA and London! Consider as well that even at that time, the plan was to link the “NET” to satellites (Skynet). When Russian President Vladimir Putin recently said the Internet was a CIA creation, he was 100% correct.
DARPA states as follows concerning its creation and reason for existence:
“The Soviet Union’s launch of Sputnik showed that a fundamental change was needed in America’s defense science and technology programs. DARPA was formed to meet this need and rejuvenated our defense technological capabilities.”
The 1977 ARPANET, precursor to the Internet, connected to RAND, Harvard, Stanford, London, etc., and the satellite grid.
The greatest of those projects (along with the Manhattan Project from World War 2) would be the secret space program hatched at Bohemian Grove known as the Star Wars Defense Initiative. SDI, the Strategic Defense Initiative, would see countless billions siphoned off of the taxpayers’ backs into endless black holes of research and development. In order to justify the intelligence state and its black budget techno ops, a great enemy was needed. That enemy continued to be the Russians, as American establishment elites justified their Faustian bargain with techno obsession through the “liberal” Marxist enemy of the Russians. Just as the British created and manufactured an enemy in the Wahhabis and Jihadism through the letters and works of Sir Lawrence of Arabia, so too did the American establishment manufacture the same with Al Qaeda in 1979. Brzezinski explains of the creation of Al Qaeda and the Mujahadeen:
Brzezinski’s 1997 The Grand Chessboard outlines the modern plan against Russia.
“Q: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?
Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.” Brzezinski was channeling Lawrence of Arabia.
British Intelligence expert Mark Curtis gives the background to the “Great Game”:
“The British strategy of divide and rule, and reliance on Muslim forces to promote imperial interests, reached its apogee in the Middle East during and after the First World War. The carving up of the region by British and French officials has been endlessly commented on – though less so as an illustration of the long-standing British ‘use’ of Islam, which then took a new turn. The Middle East was seen by British planners as critical for both strategic and commercial reasons. Strategically, the Islamic territories were important buffers against Russian expansion into the Imperial land route from British India to British-controlled Egypt. But oil had by now also entered the picture, with the founding of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Corporation in Persia in 1909, the discovery of oil in Iraq soon after, and its increasingly important role in powering the military during the First World War. British planners viewed control over Iraqi and Persian oil to be a ‘first class British War aim.'” (Curtis, Secret Affairs, 5)
