Posted on 11/25/2007 9:23:45 AM PST by Fennie
In 1984 a book was published with the title New Lies For Old. It was written by Soviet KGB defector Anatoly Golitsyn. The book claimed that the Soviet Union had a secret long-term strategy to disarm and defeat the United States through a controlled collapse of the Soviet empire that would take place in the last decade of the twentieth century. In the book's most remarkable chapter, titled "The Final Phase," Golitsyn accurately described the future of the Soviet bloc. Communism would give up its monopoly of power in Russia, he explained, as apparent freedom and democracy would be introduced. The communist Warsaw Pact alliance would be dissolved. The Berlin Wall might be taken down and Germany united as "the key to progress toward a neutral, socialist Europe"...
Get ready for the exciting sequel “The Collapse of the Republican Party Was Staged”.
Sing it babs
Actually, it was the aliens from Wolf 359 that planned it for the Russians.
I understand what you mean by putting that Pic up..but it’s still early on a nice sunny if cold Sunday morning, the birds are playing outside the window..and now I have to go wash my eyes out with acid!!!! Thanks..
This sounds like a plan put together by Pinky and the Brain with Pinky doing the brainwork and the Brain doing the legwork.
Did they have a time machine or crystal ball?
Did they know he would rally the army to prevent a takeover by the hardliners?
Who wrote this, another conspiracy theorist or just someone trying to make a buck?
What a load of garbage.
(Well, it makes as much sense as Golitsyn's theory)
Interesting quote from the article: Golitsyn's book has been dismissed as nonsense by CIA experts, pundits and journalists. "Yet of Golitsyn's falsifiable predictions, 139 out of 148 were fulfilled by the end of 1993 -- an accuracy rate of nearly 94 percent," according to Mark Riebling's history of the FBI and CIA titled Wedge.
I’m reminded of the scene in “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” where he’s trying to do tricks on his bicycle, then wipes out in front of a bunch of little kids. He jumps up, brushes his clothes off and dismissively says to the laughing kids, “I meant to do that!”
Sheesh! Paging all whackjobs and troofers!
The Soviet Challenge To America
Is that Ron Paul?
...and fire can't melt steel....! ;')
No, Ron Paul works for us. It's all part of the plan...
You figure they were behind 9-11 so we could "waste" our resources on terrorists?
This story is akin to an enemy chopping off his hands right before your eyes and saying, "See? I mean you no harm." And then chopping off his feet to further convince you. "Not convinced yet?" Gouges out own eyes.... Etc.
The Rockies used the same strategy against the Red Sox.
And the unsuspecting Red Sox fell right into their trap...
Most would laugh at this, but 60+ years ago, there was an address before the politburo from a Russian General who stated that this was indeed their plan. I remember getting a briefing on this one in a training class in the USAF back in the 80’s.
He went so far as to state that they would in fact use capitalism to obtain the materials needed in order to defeat us — effectively they would use our rope to hang us.
I never thought twice about that, until Putin woke the bear from hibernation.
I never heard of the book but at the time of the collapse it appeared to me that it was a carefully calculated strategic move on their part for reasons that were obvious — and to think, we gave Ronald Reagan all the credit.
Oh my God! Was he in on it too!?!
did they predict/ direct the demographic implosion of mother Russia and its resettlement by Moslems?
And Rove! Don’t forget Karl Rove!
This is Nyquist. Wasn’t Nyquist banned for life from FR?
Anyway, my neighbor and I came to this conclusion in 1984: the collapse of the USSR was strategic.
Me thinks thee confuses sarcasm with the TRUTH — in all due respect.
Yup, just like the towers, it’s all part of the “master plan”.
I don’t think the collapse was staged. They would never have given up their empire if they could have helped it. But I think that when they saw that it was inevitable, the Nomenklatura did what they could to preserve their power.
The NKVD/KGB/YouNameIt is still in charge of the country. And it’s clear that Putin still has imperial ambitions.
It has morphed from a Communist system of complete control to a Russian Mafia system for complete control.
They might conceivably go back to Communism at some point, because although it seemed to be discredited there are still a LOT of Communist theorists around, and it still has appeal to a lot of people. Or maybe they’ll invent some other kind of veneer to cover up what Communism was always about, anyway—power for the Nomenklatura and opium for the masses.
Funny how the libs keep trying to re-write history. (Communists and Liberals play on the same team)
The only reason they have not yet succeeded in flushing the real reasons for the end of the Cold War down the memory hole is that too many of us are still alive who lived through it and remember it.
Here is a good example: I went to a movie last night, and one of the previews was for “Charlie Wilson’s War”. I saw the book, but never read it. This preview was laced with small interview tidbits with the actors starring in it, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts and so on. I like Tom Hanks, even though he is a raging lefty...he mostly keeps it to himself. In one of the interviews, Tom Hanks talks about how this guy Charlie Wilson was a real patriot who won the Cold War singlehandedly, and how there was no hypocrisy in his actions and deeds, etc.. Julia Roberts gushed over this guy, you get the idea.
Already, I think: “Hmm...Julia Roberts...Lefty...Tom Hanks...Lefty...these people would never do anything like this for someone like Oliver North, who was a genuine patriot...”
Then the preview tells you the screenplay was done by Aaron Sorkin...and that will tell you all you need to know about this.
They are relentless in their efforts to rewrite history, twist the language to suit their needs, and lie cheat and steal to gain power.
Looks like those nasty Jihadist screwed up their plans.
And you think as well this was their grand plan?
Then I suppose they screwed it up in the execution.
Me thinks you give them waaay too much credit.
In all due respect.
It’s true and so was 911. Yeah, that’s right.
” claimed that the Soviet Union had a secret long-term strategy to disarm and defeat the United States”
The left’s hate for Reagan never ceases.
People don’t beleive it when I state that the hate for Reagan was much more intense than what we see against Bush today.
Viva La Reagan...
Well said, we lived through it.
There have been at least two serious defectors assert such.
And, there are several other source threads asserting essentially the same thing.
Certainly the world military powers have been cooperating at least since . . . when 1954 or 1964 on the UFO stuff. I believe 1954 is accurate.
Lots of things are not as they seem.
And FREEPERS OF ALL PEOPLE
that VIRTUALLY NOTHING THE MSM asserts is as the MSM asserts it.
So, why on earth is it so difficult to see such HIDDEN IN PLAIN sight stuff by FREEPERS! Sheesh.
This is old hat, really.
The globalist puppet masters have been at it a very long time.
DERISIVE DENIAL is NOT a good survival trait!
I don't think the wounds to the former USSR are fatal and I do believe it will be back likely stronger than ever. They are still a military capable nation even having the infrastructure in place to produce weapons. Their plants are shuttered but not torn down unlike the United States former defense production plants. An influx of money will cure those woes for Russia and they will be ahead of us in production capabilities.
The fall of the USSR was for prophetic reasons and I see it as being short lived. Russia will join forces with Arabic nations to go to war against Israel.
The globalist’s long ago co-opted all the significant leaders of any significance in any significant country.
It is, evidently, only a matter of whether a given leader will rush us to the global tyrannical government at the speed of light—like Shrillery . . . or someone else will move us there somewhat slower.
