  • On War Preparations and Secret Structures

    ďAs shown by the preceding chapters on the nature and methods of waging modern war, victory in modern war is quite unthinkable without thorough and timely preparation of the country and the armed forces.Ē - V.D. Sokolovskii, Soviet Military Strategy, p. 281 A recent piece in The European depicts the EU sanctions against Russia as fundamentally misconceived. ďThe sanction policy is in no way, shape or form working,Ē says the article. The sanctions have failed because Putin ďcontrols the perceptionsĒ of the Russian population. Meanwhile, anti-war sentiment is gaining ground in Germany and all over Europe. Russian propaganda is gradually...

    Bluff 1. To engage in a false display of confidence or aggression in order to deceive or intimidate someone. 2. To make a display of aggression, as by charging or baring the teeth, as means of intimidating another animal.                                 - The Free DictionaryNuclear Blackmail is a form of nuclear strategy in which an aggressor uses the threat of use of nuclear weapons to force an adversary to perform some action or make some concessions. It is a type of extortion.                                - Wikipedia During the Munich Security Conference on Friday, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon told Reuters of a three-fold concern....

    People in the Baltic states cannot feel secure. Russian President Vladimir Putin has a plan he has been working on for over a decade. So says former adviser to President Putin, Andrey Illarionov. Giving a presentation at a conference in Palanga, Lithuania, Illarionov, who advised Putin on economic policy in 2000-2005, referred to a question that was raised in the recent Riga Conference 2014: Can people in Riga sleep peacefully at night? ďThe same question could be raised in Tallinn, Vilnius, Palanga, Bucharest and other cities. No one in Riga could reply to it in the positive,Ē Illarionov said. ďFrom...

    The Hidden USSR Commentary of 24 February 2014 Last week Tennent ďPeteĒ Bagley passed away. He was an important person in CIA history, especially in terms of the unraveling of American intelligence which began in the 1960s Ė an unraveling that brings us to the present crisis which is playing itself out in Kiev and Washington. As of today, a war has broken out in Eastern Europe between ďthe hidden Soviet Union,Ē as Boris Chykulay calls it, and the Ukrainian people. It is a war that has reached critical mass, with far-reaching ramifications.
  • New Threats for Old: New Russian regime more dangerous than old - S. Grigoryants warned in 1990

    05/07/2012 12:39:06 PM PDT · by JRNyquist · 12 replies
    Once upon a time the Cold War and the threat of nuclear annihilation helped to maintain a certain focus. America and its European allies were supposedly upholding capitalism and freedom against Soviet Communism. Then the Soviet Union broke apart and we got our hands on the ‚Äúpeace dividend.‚ÄĚ Money could be diverted from weapons to social programs. The West was free to pursue its own socialism ‚Äď leading to bankruptcy. In 1990 a Soviet dissident named Sergei Grigoryants, who was twice imprisoned by the KGB, gave a speech in which he warned of the deceptive reality behind of the collapse...

    Egypt is in the grip of revolutionary violence. The longstanding regime of Hosni Mubarak may be overthrown. If this happens, the consequences will be far-reaching. Egypt has the largest population and the strongest military in the Arab world. If a revolutionary Jihadist regime takes power in Egypt, then Saudi Arabia and the Gulf emirates will probably not survive. In that event, the oil-rich Persian Gulf will fall into the hands of radicals who are likely to use oil as a weapon against Europe, Japan and America. Following the pattern of other revolutionary regimes, the radicals will realign their respective countries...
  • Incoherent Lunatics are Dangerous

    When we study the overall situation of the United States today, we find illumination in certain prominent events. Here, the forces at play reveal themselves; for power resides in the ability to interpret actions, thereby manipulating public perceptions. Has a war broken out? Has a market crash occurred? Watch how quickly a scapegoat is found. Has a politician been assassinated? The actual facts mean very little, because the interpretation is the true battleground, and facts will be invented in order to reinforce a specific mythology. Therefore, blame America if war breaks out; blame the capitalists for the crash of the...

    Our Russian Oracleby J. R. Nyquist Weekly Column Published: 5.28.2010 North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il is ready for a fight. Two days ago the North Korean military announced, "We do not hope for war, but if South Korea ... tries to attack us Kim Jong-il has ordered us to finish the task of unification left undone during the [Korean] war." And why should there be a war? Last March North Korea sank a South Korean corvette. There are a number of possible explanations for this. Perhaps the North Koreans were testing President Obama. Perhaps it was a planned diversion, insofar...

    Acknowledging the Deception::by J. R. Nyquist Weekly Column Published: 07.24.2009 Meet Victor Kalashnikov: former KGB officer, scholar, analyst, and writer. He is married to historian and journalist Marina Kalashnikova, the subject of last weekís column. Before the Soviet Union collapsed Victor worked for the KGB in Vienna. After Gorbachevís bizarre abdication in December 1991, Victor found himself drawn into the Presidential administration of Boris Yeltsin on orders of KGB General Yevgeny Primakov. There he became a research director in the Russian Public Policy Center. ďSo I turned my attention 180 degrees from Europe to Russia,Ē Victor explained. ďI was quite...

    The world is full of bad people doing bad things. There are regimes that persecute Christians, Buddhists and others. There are double-crossing generals, arms and drug traffickers, treacherous diplomats and false fronts. There are double agents and blackmailed politicians. There is blood in the streets, revolution, war and hatred in today's world. You wouldn't know it from looking out a suburban window in America. But beyond our borders things aren't nice. People are suffering. On Feb. 11 reported that Chinese authorities were cracking down on Christian churches that operate outside government control. Nearly 24,000 Christians have recently been arrested ...

    As students of conspiracy arguments know, the Birch Society is quite fond of citing Anatoli Golitsyn's assertions to substantiate JBS arguments about successful Soviet deception operations against the United States and the western world. In fact, the JBS recommends and sells both of Golitsyn's books. There is, however, a major dilemma contained within JBS arguments which accept Golitsyn's assertions. Let's review some background information about what Golitsyn told western intelligence agencies after his defection. The following numbered excerpts come from Edward Jay Epstein's website (link below). Epstein authored the 1989 book, Deception: The Invisible War Between the KGB and the...

    Many in the West would prefer to herald the Beslan tragedy as an opportunity for greater U.S.-Russian cooperation in combating terrorism. In reality, however, relations between Washington and Moscow are following a downward spiral. In Russia we find an emerging dictatorship that espouses a subtle anti-American propaganda. What was previously hidden has come into view: the totalitarians are still in charge. Putinís pretext for strengthening his dictatorship is found at Belsan, in 350 body bags. What actually happened at Beslan (where hundreds of children were slaughtered by terrorists)? We still donít know the facts. Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya says that...

    From time to time I read the news and articles of the PT (Workerís Party),, official site. And it's not old news from old notebooks, it is this yearís declarations. Itís possible to see that old aspirations Ė suffering metamorphosis, or not Ė still live. Look at this affirmation of Josť Dirceu, head of Civil House: We are retaking the political agenda of 1964 because problems like cultural democratization, agrarian reform, national autonomy and citizenship are still ongoing since then. ( For the reader who doesnít know what happened around 1964, I can explain in three words: Brazil's counter-revolution....
