IS THE FINAL PUSH BY THE WEST AGAINST RUSSIA ON ITS WAY?
Is Putin ready to use every option to defeat the West's plan?
The one thing that ought to be noted above all others should be well known to us all now.
The edifice of western elite power has given up on compromise long ago and the political elites within it have been totally devious and utterly untrustworthy for decades.
They use the semblance of diplomacy as a mere trick, a facade of willingness to compromise, something only enacted for their own benefit.
The goal of the western powers is the dissolution of all forms of governance that a) do not conform to their requirements for subservience and b) do not allow their corporate sector easy access.
Any nations that do to conform to these requirements are the target of any and all means at western disposal to bring them to their knees.
Most of the time keeping the pressure on with a range of convenient lies creating fear and loathing is sufficient. When the pressure creates some cracks in the opposition these are exploited to the full. Cracks are attempted to be levered open using faux issues to do with so-called human rights, freedom of speech and authoritarianism.
Activists both outside the target countries and within them are used to widen perceived cracks by manipulating compliant western news entities and non-governmental organisations. You will have noted these campaigns initiated in this way time and time again. Hong Kong, the Uyghurs, Alexey Navalny etc. etc. In Syria, there were myriad such campaigns attempting to portray both the Syrian and Russian authorities as unrepentant and irredeemable demons well beyond the pale. To drag the name of the target as close to a resemblance to Hitler is the goal. As Himmler once said, if you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one… then you stand the best chance of at least something sticking… as long as you also make sure you repeat the lie often enough.
In the minds of too many in the West who have succumbed to the relentless demonization of Putin the mud thrown has stuck fast. For a growing number however who have looked past the sleazy hatchet jobs and slanderous magazine covers and headlines and taken some time to look closer a completely opposite picture to that portraying him has emerged.
The conditioning of the western public however is only a lesser priority when compared to the damage which can be done in other ways. Keeping the general public within western nations dormant and deceived is relatively easy with their heads made generally shallow within the TV-obsessed, consumer-insane societies they live within. The greater challenge was always going to be using economic, intelligence and military means to soften the target ready for subversion.
The primary task of internal subversion is three-pronged as described above.
Economic: To exert continual economic pressure via sanctions and financial restrictions.
Intel: To use the greedy, criminal and disaffected within target nations to cause as much disruption as possible.
Military: To push NATO right into Russia’s face to the maximum in order to goad its leadership into responses that can be ruthlessly exploited.
The first two of these means of bringing about the destabilisation of Russia have failed to bring the degree of success desired. That leaves the third, NATO expansion to Russia’s borders as the last and potentially most effective means of forwarding the primary task.
The propaganda campaign of the last month or so to generate a perception in the western world that Russia was about to invade poor helpless Ukraine for no reason and only stopped in its tracks by western warnings has achieved the traction desired.
Now a short period of faux diplomacy is taking place which the USA will use in any way it can to further generate the ‘Russia as a Fearsome Danger’ trope. Solemn warnings will be given. Threats will be made. All will concern a ‘Russian Invasion Plan’ that never existed.
Meanwhile, the CIA is most likely to coordinate an event within Ukraine that will involve a major provocation designed to draw a military response from Russia. This will then be used to instigate the next preplanned stage in the campaign to create a fracture within Russia’s ability to defend itself. It is quite possible some other means of creating chaos will also be initiated within Russia itself to coincide with that within Ukraine.
The determination of the West to achieve its goals is set in a background where no holds are barred. No ethical or moral rules of any kind are to apply, this holds true both in the kind of acts perpetrated and in the lies told across all subjects. Deception, deceit and dirty tricks are embedded deep within the modus operandi of the USA and UK and are being fully supported in most cases by the entire EU bloc.
Putin will be well aware of all this and will be watchful for the range of tactics the western powers constantly afford themselves the inalienable right to. Nonetheless, the level of expertise the USA has in the art of deception, betrayal and utterly cynical manipulation of facts, means that outcomes are not completely predictable. Russia is the target and must defend itself as best it can while being increasingly surrounded by hostile forces. The USA and its allies have a wider range of options to undermine that defence. Much will depend on whether Putin has finally dispensed with his kid gloves when dealing with the mounting threats he now faces.
