method: a repeat of the 1979 Brezinski ploy, which
consisted of luring Moscow into Afghanistan, in order to get the Russians
bogged down in their “Vietnam”. As the Russians are a
much more peace-loving people, largely because of what they suffered in two
World Wars, the Russian involvement in Afghanistan was very unpopular and can
be seen as a cause of the collapse of the Soviet Union.
This led to the
temporary reign of the drunken Boris Yeltsin who – as recounted in Strobe
Talbott’s memoirs – was putty in the hands of Bill Clinton. Hillary would
like to renew that sort of relationship. Putin is an obstacle.
The new version of
this old strategy is to use Russia’s totally legal and justifiable efforts to
save Syria from destruction in order to cause enough Russian casualties to
incite anti-Putin reaction in Russia leading to his overthrow. (Note State
Department spokesman John Kirby’s recent warning that Russia will soon be
“sending troops home in body bags”.)
That is the prime
reason why the United States is doing everything to keep the Syrian war
dragging on and on. The joint Syrian-Russian offensive to recapture the
rebel-held Eastern sections of Aleppo might lead to an early end of the
war. U.S. reaction: a huge propaganda campaign condemning this normal
military operation as “criminal”, while driving ISIS forces out of Mosul with
attacks from the East, so that they will move westward into Syria, to fight
against the Assad government.
Ukraine is another
theater for weakening Putin.
ambition – made explicit by her own and her close aides’ statements about Libya
in emails at the time – is to gain her place in history as victorious
strategist of “regime change”, using open and covert methods (“smart power”),
thus bringing recalcitrant regions under control of the “exceptional, good”
nation, the United States.
This ambition is
backed by possession of nuclear weapons.
I am by no means
saying that this plan will succeed. But it is very clearly the plan.
