Welcome back. We continue we this fascinating story. Do note that we mortals do not have the power to predict the future. Rather, we can analyze trend lines, and study the plans of these two networks of power. What we are going to describe in the pages that follow is the Rockefeller game-plan to eliminate its geopolitical rivals. Whether it happens that way or not is hard to say. Having studied geopolitics and the modus operandi of the Rockefeller family since October 1973, one can estimate what their forward moves will be like.
Between 1945 and 2000, the US had managed to conquer Europe – financially, economically and militarily. A key geopolitical rival was neutralized, and brought under control. Today, Europe is lagging far behind the US in terms of military strength and power projection. The Balkan wars of the 1990s, the Arab Spring and the ISIS threat exposed Europe’s military vulnerabilities.
Then, we have Europe’s dependence on imported energy, which the US tried to exploit with the Arab Spring. The US aim here is to CONTROL Europe’s energy imports. Do note that the EU, as a whole, is a key geopolitical rival of the US. Rivals are destroyed or brought under control. And here, Russia’s supply of energy to the EU was always an issue between these two blocs, since the 1950s. The struggle has intensified in recent years. See the authors articles, called “The Gas Wars”, https://behind-the-news.com/the-gas-wars-part-1-of-a-3-part-series/ to fully understand this. Kissinger’s words from the 1970s illustrates this point: – “who controls the oil flows, controls the destinies of nations”.
As energy production within the EU declines, its dependence on imported oil increases, and the Middle East is the EU’s last hope of securing stable, secure, and long-term supplies. In this context, a stable Middle East is of vital importance to the EU. That is one of the main reasons why there is a discord between the EU and the US over Iran – and its nuclear program. Just as the US is working hard to reduce the EU-Russian energy ties, so it is with the EU and Iran.
Historically, Germany and Russia have maintained close economic ties. It’s an ideal mix. Russia needs German high tech and industrial goods, while Germany needs the raw materials and energy products from Russia. The US has tried for decades to weaken this economic link between the two. Since the beginning of this year, Germany has taken a harder stance against Russia (notwithstanding the Nord Stream 2 project), and Putin has now given up on Angela Merkel and Germany. Since the Ukraine issue in 2014, Putin began reducing his reliance on Germany and Europe, and has turned eastwards to China and Japan. Putin’s dream of creating a single economic space between Lisbon to Vladivostok has failed. The Americans have scored a major success in turning Europe and Germany against Russia.
Secondly, the 1946 US imposition of a US-dollar based reconstruction fund, was not only creating a European dollar dependence, it also laid the ground work for a singular currency, the Euro. The Euro is nothing but the foster child of the dollar, as it was created under the same image as the US-dollar – it is a fiat currency, backed by nothing. The United Europe, or now called the European Union – was never really a union. It was never a European idea, but put forward by US. And every attempt to create a United Europe, a European Federation, with a European Constitution, similar to the United States, was bitterly sabotaged by the US, mostly through the US mole in the EU, namely the UK.
The US didn’t want a strong Europe, both economically and possibly over time militarily as well. Population of Europe is 450 million versus population of the US 330 million. The 2019 EU GDP was US$ 20.3 trillion equivalent versus US GDP which was US$ 21.4 trillion. Most economists would agree that a common currency for a loose group of countries has no future, and is not sustainable. In comes the European Central Bank (ECB), also a creation inspired by the FED. The ECB has really no Central Bank function. Rather it is a watch dog because each EU member country still has her own Central Bank, though with a drastically reduced sovereignty.
Europe has always been a geopolitical target of New York over the decades, especially over oil. Every war in the Middle East has had a negative impact on Europe Inc. The coming war will bring Europe to its knees like it has never experienced before.
Since coming to power in 2012, Hu Jintao the Chinese leader, has rolled out a series of initiatives that aimed at economic and financial independence, in a way that would increase China’s influence, and reduce US influence, in Asia. . The “China Pivot” policy announced by Obama in 2012 was aimed at disrupting China’s increasing influence globally.
To this end, the US formed an anti-China alliance comprising Australia, India, Japan and Taiwan has been created – called “the Quad”. The aim was to encircle China and to be in a position to impose a naval embargo on China- and a block on Chinese oil imports and its exports of manufactured goods. The trade deal concluded between China and the US in January 2020 was part of the US plan to raise the cost of business for China Inc.
If Taiwan helps block the Chinese navy, it will be in support of US strategy. The Americans are therefore deliberately pushing Taiwan to confront Beijing. This policy has been implemented for more than a decade and precedes President Donald Trump, and will likely continue after him, whether that will be after the 2020 elections or after the 2024 elections. The Americans are trying to force Taiwan to bear most of the costs of serving this strategy to contain China, but leaders in Taipei are showing signs they are more than willing to pay.
However, although this may antagonize Beijing, the truth is that it still cannot prevent Chinese activities and power projections in the South China Sea. Rather, Taiwan’s ambitions can see it lose trade deals with the mainland which will be far more devastating and impactful than the island’s conversion into an American fortress to pressurize China.
The US will try and increase enmity (using a variety of issues) between China and the Quad nations over the coming months, thereby increasing tensions between them. Time will tell how this will play out.
The ONLY way to cripple China is to cut-off its access to oil imports. And here, we will see how the US will go about that.
Russia’s Strategic Problem
Russian President Vladimir Putin described the collapse of the Soviet Union as the greatest geopolitical catastrophe in history, because it cost Russia what it needs most: strategic depth. Until 1989, Russia’s western border was effectively in central Germany. The Caucasus shielded Russia from the south. Central Asia was a vast buffer against South Asia and potentially China. The Russian heartland, in other words, was secure from every direction.
The fall of the Soviet Union pulled its western border back behind the Baltics, Ukraine and Belarus. Russia retained the North Caucasus but lost the South Caucasus – Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. Central Asia broke down into independent states. This contraction of Russia represented not only a diminution of size but a decreased distance between potential enemies.
Russia inevitably sought to redraw the borders before a serious threat emerged. That no serious threat existed gave Russia some time. But for a country like Russia, insecurity can manifest quickly. The Russians had to increase their strategic depth, but they had to do so without triggering the attack they feared before their depth was increased.
We have seen three events in recent months – one in Belarus, one in the South Caucasus, one in Kyrgyzstan – that together encompass portions of the borderlands Russia lost.
Belarus is a key buffer on the North European Plain. If longtime President Alexander Lukashenko were replaced with someone more antagonistic toward Russia or more sympathetic to the West, it could effectively move NATO, Poland and the Americans farther east, relegating cities such as Smolensk to border towns.
In Kyrgyzstan, which sits between Russia and China, there is similar political unrest. Here, too, an election has resulted in claims of fraud and large-scale demonstrations. The Russians have some military facilities there, but the most important point is that it provides a buffer between Russia and China. Russia and China are not currently at odds, but they fought each other as recently as the 1960s. Though that was 60 years ago, geopolitics tends to repeat itself, and whatever current interests might guide them, both are old hands at the shifts of history, and neither wants the other to have an advantage.
In the South Caucasus, a war has broken out between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed enclave governed by ethnic Armenians inside Azerbaijan. Broadly speaking, Azerbaijan is backed as before by Turkey, a country with whom Azerbaijan has an ethnic affinity, while Armenia is supported by Russia. The Russians are clearly using the war to increase their influence with Azerbaijan, the most powerful and wealthy country in the South Caucasus. Moscow helped to broker a cease-fire.
One month after Trump won the US presidential elections in November 2016, Kissinger flew to Moscow and made a deal with Putin, on behalf of his masters-the Rockefeller family, now headed by David Jnr. It was this tie-up between Putin and the Rockefellers that drove London nuts. And since then, a massive disinformation scandal was aimed at Trump, by London. This plan eventually failed. To neutralize London’s attempts at destabilizing Putin from within his close circles, the Rockefellers –through the CIA (a family-owned entity), Hollywood produced a movie; called “Hunter Killer” Hunter Killer is a 2018 American action thriller film and based on the 2012 novel Firing Point by Don Keith and George Wallace. The movie follows a submarine crew and a group of Navy SEALS who rescue the captured Russian President from a coup. Hunter Killer was released in the United States on October 26, 2018, by Summit Entertainment. When one follows the timeline, the orders for producing this movie must have been given at around early 2017. It was a very subtle message to Putin, from the Rockefellers to say – “we have your back”.
The Middle East
We finally come to the Middle East. The American aim is to blow up the region, and cut off its oil exports. By achieving this, the US will be in a paramount position in terms of dictating terms to nations that relied on oil imports from this region. The geopolitical advantage will shift to the US in more ways than one. And the most important advantage will be to securing the continued domination of the dollar as the dominant currency in the world.
Obviously, were the Middle East to blow up -as per the US aims, we would find that many nations that are dependent on oil imports will be forced to enter their military forces into the region, in order to secure oil supplies. The competition for this will lead to military conflicts between various powers, and this conflict will spread outwards to encompass the whole of Eurasia.
Both the US and Israel will exploit the built-in bias and enmity between the two ideological rivals – the Sunni and Shia camps – between Iran and the Arabs. A war between these two could definitely blow up the region. We will discuss this in more detail in our follow up article called “Why was Beirut Nuked?’
The US has four main geopolitical rivals – the EU, Russia, China and Iran. Let’s see how it all plays out with these 5 key actors on the world’s scene. Now, let’s look at the CONSEQUENCES, were this to happen. It would be best explained by a sequence of events, as per the “Fortress America” timeline. Here goes:-
Regime change Venezuela. Once this is done, then both Nicaragua and Cuba will fall into the US orbit as well. This will then secure America’s ’back yard in terms of access and control of raw materials and consumer markets. It will also help in denying access to America’s rivals, such as Russia, the EU, China and Iran. It is crucial that Cuba be denied to Russia, for the simple fact, is that Russia can use an air base in Cuba to interdict the movement of oil and other goods from South America to America, Europe, or China.
Next, blow up the Middle East by creating a war between the Iran bloc and the Arab bloc – allied with Israel and the US. This war will shut off oil supplies from the region.
Third, institute a naval embargo on China- effectively shutting off its maritime trade routes, crippling China Inc. This will be done in conjunction with the four Quad members – India, Australia, Japan and Taiwan.
Fourth, with no more oil coming in (China imports 75% of its energy needs), China, to avoid a social and economic meltdown, would be forced to look north – to Russia’s Far Eastern region, to satisfy its shortfall in oil imports. This region is so rich in a variety of natural resources besides oil, that, in acquiring it, would secure China’s oil needs for years to come. The far eastern regions of Russia are vast, and thinly populated.
A look at the map reveals a strategic vulnerability on Russia’s part. To address this issue, Putin has been offering free land to any citizen willing to settle in this area. Of Russia’s population of 148 million, about 8 million people reside in this region. It won’t be a problem for China to move a few million of its citizens into Russia’s Far Eastern region, Already, there are many Chinese living and working here, with a steady increase year by year.
So, China will be put in a spot, and were China to invade Russia’s Far East, and then it would spell the end of the three great Eurasian powers- Russia, China and India.
Once China attacks Russia, and depending on how the war in the north is faring, India will seize this opportunity to attack China in the south, using the lame excuse of “reclaiming disputed territory. In addition, the US has promised to “give” Tibet to India. Tibet is such an important piece of real estate, that whoever holds Tibet, can exert “water geopolitics” on several Asian nations. Tibet is the source of water for several nations. Besides, Tibet is rich in a variety of natural mineral resources, including oil, timber, diamonds, gold, etc. The full story of this is told in the author’s article, titled “The Geopolitics of Tibet”; https://behind-the-news.com/the-geopolitics-of-tibet/ which will be loaded in early 2021. So then, we find a full scale war in Eastern Eurasia because China, in this case, will call for help from Pakistan. In this case, Pakistan will open up a military front against India, thus, dividing Indian military force into two – one against China (invading) and one against Pakistan (defending). Since all four Asian nations are nuclear powers as well, one can expect Russia to use nuclear force against a huge Chinese military force (China has more cooks in its army than most nations have soldiers),; will China also use nuclear power against an invading Indian army? Will both Pakistan and India use nuclear power against each other to gain a strategic advantage? Who will win, or lose? The only winner here will be the US.
In short, this is what America’s grand geopolitical game is for Eurasia. Just like World War 2 (1939-1945), all of America’s rivals were brought down to size, and the Eurasian continent was destroyed. America was not. It picked up the pieces in Eurasia, re-arranged the economic, financial, and political system of the post-war order. This order has weakened to a great extent, and America’s global dominance is declining. To halt this decline, it needs this war, in order to buy time. Time to do what? To implement its “ICE-NINE” plan, https://behind-the-news.com/ice-nine-how-the-elites-plan-to-steal-your-money-the-global-financial-lockdown/ To understand why this is so, will be better explained in our forthcoming article about how the collapsing financial system is driving the current issues of 2020 – from the Corona virus, to the changing Middle East, and the political coup in the US elections.
Our next article details the story of “Why was Beirut Nuked”.
