Sixty years ago, the Soviet Union was instigating coups and starting civil wars all around the globe to spread communism. The U.S. fought against communist aggression in Korea, Vietnam and South America. Today, we live in an upside-down world. In the last decade or so, the U.S. has instigated coups and civil wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria to propagate U.S. bankster socialism. That’s why the Libyan rebels set up a central bank in Benghazi before the civil war had begun in earnest. As a result, all of these countries are powder kegs now. The only reason U.S. troops aren’t publicly fighting and dying in Syria – special forces are doing so secretly – is Russian President Vladimir Putin saved their lives by brokering a deal to remove Syria’s chemical weapons.
Now, the U.S. has added Ukraine and Venezuela to the list of
countries in which our rulers are instigating coups. As usual, the U.S.
press, calling the coup a democracy movement, has the story upside-down.
The president, who was ousted by U.S.-backed mobs, was democratically
elected. Any doubt about who was behind the coup was erased when a
recording of a U.S. official saying, “F**k the EU” on an unsecured phone
was leaked. Economic Policy Journal reported, “In the call, which was anonymously posted on YouTube,
Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to the
Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt lay out their desired outcome for the crisis in
Ukraine and accuse the European Union of not doing enough.”
While this story reached prominence in the U.S. in February, during the Putin-bashing Olympics, Storyleak
reported in December, “What is particularly surprising about the
current color revolution unfolding in the Ukraine is this nation was the
site of the very same CIA implementation plan back in 2004/2005. The
Orange Revolution, as it was known at the time, was a classic
CIA-engineered plot to impose their political outcome on the Ukrainian
people. And they succeeded with flying colors. That CIA-sponsored coup
d’état was so successful, it has since been used as a model for every
other CIA-manufactured scheme that has toppled governments and reversed
fair election outcomes the world over. In fact, the Ukraine is where the
various social network utilities were used so effectively, the new M.O.
has become known as the ‘digital blitzkrieg.’ Never in human history
have so many citizens been stampeded in the direction of overthrowing
their government while being completely ignorant of the real forces
manipulating the cattle prods.”
This coup attempt by a small, organized, violent mob was successful,
too. Not wasting any time, Kiev’s victorious mobsters immediately shook
down the EU for a €5 billion payoff. Now, Ukraine is divided between its
European west and its Russian east. Russian troops have seized control
of the Crimean peninsula on the Black Sea. If U.S. aggressors really
thought they could bluff Putin into sitting idle while they took control
of Ukraine, they were mistaken.
A similar situation is playing out in Venezuela, with one difference
being Venezuela is an economic basket case because of nearly two decades
of socialism. Antiwar.com explained what happened in Venezuela:
“In Venezuela, opponents of the Bolivarian Revolution hoped to win in
the polls in a way they had repeatedly failed to do while Chavez was
alive. But Chavez’ successor, Nicolás Maduro, handed them yet another
defeat, and the revolution continued. Despite monitors from around the
world certifying the election as fair, the United States continued to
defy every other country in the world by refusing to recognize Maduro’s
victory and backing the opposition’s claims of fraud and their demands
for further recounts.”
The modus operandi seems to be, if the U.S.-backed party can’t win in
a fair election, initiate a coup by mob in the streets. So much for
U.S. claims to support democracy.
While these coups might seem like isolated incidents, many see a
pattern of the U.S. picking fights with Russia. Russia has a navy base
in Syria, historical ties to Ukraine and is currently negotiating for
military support with Venezuela. Provoking the only other nuclear
superpower in the world seems outrageously dangerous. Justin Raimondo
believes current geopolitical tensions parallel the situation before
World War I: “Add to [Syria, Ukraine, Venezuela] the ongoing turmoil in
Iraq and the complete collapse of the Afghan front (aided by the antics
of Afghan President Hamid Karzai), and the world situation begins to
greatly resemble that which occasioned the outbreak of World War I – the
The question is: Why would U.S. rulers want to provoke Russia? The
answer is: They need a scapegoat for the coming economic collapse. They
can’t allow the people to realize central banking itself –
counterfeiting fantastic amounts of funny money – is the cause of the
impending collapse. They have to blame the collapse on something else.
War, Russia and Putin make great scapegoats. March 3 headlines blamed
Ukraine for a global economic crisis and for the worst U.S. stock day
since January, but don’t let our rulers fool you. Putin isn’t stealing
our money and destroying our country. They are.
