Some analysts have noted that the Cold War is, on an important level, still raging. The continued espionage between China, Russia and the U.S. represents a real strategic threat that will mean an eventual confrontation between the superpowers. It is worth noting that the Western media never rarely focuses on threats from either China or Russia, aside from sensationalistic stories that circulated about Anna Chapman. However, Bloomberg did recently run a story that shows there are still plenty of good people in the FBI and CIA. The article states:
“Hearkening back to Cold War anxieties, growing signs of spying on U.S. universities are alarming national security officials. As schools become more global in their locations and student populations, their culture of openness and international collaboration makes them increasingly vulnerable to theft of research conducted for the government and industry.”
The idiocy here is that the very establishment that publishes Department of Defense analysis papers on strategic risk trends is the same establishment that pushes all the very policies that lead to a mass influx of foreign intelligence recruits. It may seem odd to some that youth would be the target of intelligence recruitment or foreign spying, but the truth is the very opposite. The youth were recruited by both Hitler and Stalin. Youth is the prime time of life, when arrogance is at its highest and the tempting lure of becoming a “spy” is irresistible to naive young minds.
The Wall Street Journal reports of the Chapman spy ring: “A Russian spy ring busted in the U.S. two years ago planned to recruit members’ children to become agents, and one had already agreed to his parents’ request, according to current and former U.S. officials….Children born or reared in America were potentially more valuable espionage assets than their parents because when they grew up they would be more likely to
pass a U.S. government background check.” As a side note, remember that Salt came out around the time of the Anna Chapman event, and included Jolie inviting Chapman to attend the Moscow premier of the film.
This is standard fare and nothing new, historically. Grevork Andreyevich Vartanyan was a famed spy for Russia and was recruited by the Stalinist regime at an early age. The DailyMail writes: ”The legendary Russian-born spy was the son of an Iranian factory owner of Armenian origin. His father took the family back to Iran in the 1930s as part of a mission decreed by Stalin. He enlisted his son who was working undercover by the age of 16.”
The standard, modern authoritarian leftists and republiconmunists live in a delusional fantasy world where none of this history happened. The real world is full of espionage, conspiracy and theft of important secrets, despite the very modern idea that “conspiracy” is a fringe circle with little actual evidence to back it up. Particularly during the Clinton era, the Anglo-American powers armed and built up the North Korean arsenal through its aid to China. Newsmax reported in 2003:
“During the early Clinton years, hard-liners and so-called conservative hawks advocated a pre-emptive strike to halt North Korea’s nuclear weapons development before it could field an atomic bomb. Instead of taking the hard-line, President Clinton elected to rely on former President Jimmy Carter and decided to appease the Marxist-Stalinist dictatorship.
Carter met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in Pyongyang and returned to America waving a piece of paper and declaring peace in our time. Kim, according to Carter, had agreed to stop his nuclear weapons development. The Clinton appeasement program for North Korea included hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, food, oil and even a nuclear reactor. However, the agreement was flawed and lacked even the most informal means of verification. In return, Kim elected to starve his people while using the American aid to build uranium bombs. The lowest estimate is that Kim starved to death over 1 million of his own people, even with the U.S. aid program.” Read more of this post
