|Deflating the strategy of tension... |

The flexibility of Western pipeline plans makes it difficult to pin down exactly where the lines are drawn between the US and the former USSR, especially since the so-called “reset” in relations has supposedly taken effect. The merger of American and Russian development plans for the Central Asian region should mean that the lines of division have all been erased. But that is impossible, simply because the differences between systems that have been made prominent by human rights concerns, makes it necessary to maintain at least the illusion that the authoritarian and democratic positions are not identical.
On the surface, the problems associated with such a “reset” would seem to explain the remaining divisions between East and West, but there are hidden considerations. The sinking of the American economic position, in contrast to the rising Russian status, brews strong temptations for the Russian side to seek permanent advantage over their former nemesis and for the American side, strong impetus to deny the “Ruskies” their moment of schadenfreude (I always swore that I would never use that word). The merger of the two sides’ interests probably accounts for the sudden threat of “Islamists” all over the former Soviet territory. The unknown factor is whether America’s “Islamists” are still serving America’s anti-Russian agenda, or whether their mission has been compromised so that their violence serves both American and Russian plans.
Putin and Obama will never really be on the same page all the time until the issue of Nabucco is resolved. Until then, all cooperative efforts involving the militants should be considered merely window dressing unless other information confirms a genuine attempt to find common ground. For the sake of unity in the terror war and allegedly in the drug war, as well, both sides see eye-to-eye, but beyond that, cooperation gives way to competition. The actions of the Islamists should be seen as “tie-breakers,” deployed to resolve contested issues in America’s favor.
The object of the competition is to capture the corporate money which is being poured into Central Asian resource development, both sides are vying for the same funds, to invest in similar or the same resources and industrial investment opportunities to repair or replace dilapidated Soviet-era industries. The competition can best be described as a series of intrigues, staged to capture the local authority required to begin reconstruction and development projects to bring roads, rails, water, electricity and housing construction that are desperately needed in the under-developed region.
Sometimes the intrigues are one-sided, other times both sides become actors, playing different roles in the same dramas, such as the troubles in Kyrgyzstan. It is extremely difficult for outside observers to identify the opposing sides, or even to when the major powers are working together. The very real social upheaval in the contentious region (agitated into its present condition by the original divisive ethnic policies of Stalin’s police state and the chaos of the post-Soviet era) was amplified by the introduction of Western ethno-religious psychological warfare scenarios. These psywar scenarios are typically oriented to aggravate religion and tribal-based differences. In the case of Kyrgyzstan, charges of “ethnic cleansing” reverberated through city streets, along with rumors of IMU (Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan) infiltration in the south, in support of the Bakyiev dictatorship.
In Tajikistan itself, government forces are cracking-down on the political opposition leaders and their supporters, claiming that they are fighting a resurgence of the same IMU “Islamists.” Dozens have been killed in separate encounters between government forces and fighters hiding in the mountains and deep gorges, but with the lack of reporting from the country and remote battle sites, it is impossible to determine who is initiating these fights. It remains to be seen whether the so-called “Islamists” (allegedly under the command of rebel leader Mullah Abdullo in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan), are working the Russian or American end of the great con-job. We will only know the truth when we see either NATO forces or those from the CTSO, entering Tajikistan under the guise of fighting either terrorism or drugs (SEE: CSTO to hold drills in Russia’s Urals).
As in Tajikistan, so it is in Chechnya and Ingushetia, where rumored American asset, Doku Umarov (SEE: We Fight U.S, British Special Services in Mountains) has just caused a split in the militants fighting against Russian and Chechen troops. In this operation, the nationalist fighters have turned against Saudi-funded Umarov because of his attempts to turn the Chechen cause into a fight for the internationalist militants (otherwise known as “al Qaida”). The militant cause there has clearly turned against Moscow for the worst, rejecting Doku’s leadership for the sake of the national liberation struggle. Since the American schemes have played-out here, we should probably expect to see another Russo-Georgia conflict, in order to remove the thorn named Saakashvili from Putin’s side, as well as the bothersome Islamic militants.
Doku was allegedly behind the “Black Widow” Moscow subway bombers, so the split may mean a small victory for the Russian authorities. It is probably impossible to predict the next direction that the struggle to open-up Central Asia for resource development or Soviet re-industrialization investments will take, but ongoing Russian war games near Ingushetia with the CTSO forces, or the SCO exercises that are underway in Kazakhstan are probably practice for the next steps. The CTSO games involved troops from Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Belarus. Among the strategies and tactics practiced in these games was the use of “non-lethal weapons for fights in urban areas.”
Recent renewal of the Russian/Armenian defense pact says that defending against an Azerbaijani thrust is a possibility, but that would be a decision made by the Azeri leaders. Signing of border control and customs agreements with Kazakhstan has opened-up the possibility of a counter-narcotics mission there. Tajik violence and the jailbreak by Islamists brought with it the offer of Russian military assistance. Tajikistan could be used as a secondary staging area to help pacify southern Kyrgyzstan. Belarus is always straining against the demands of Moscow, which is like an open invitation to a violent re-Sovietization, at some point. Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan all took part in SCO war games with Russia and China in Kazakhstan.
The American component of the intrigues, especially the drug-running “Islamist” gambit, leaves open the major possibility that the US side will maintain its control of the psyop, maintaining drug supplies, while simultaneously pretending to lead the fight against them, unless everything manages to fall into complete chaos. The problem with betting on the side of chaos is that when it comes down to chaos, that is America’s main area of expertise. Managing conflict, bringing order out of chaos, has become close to an exact science under American control. That brings the whole exercise back to a central question: Can American behaviorists maintain control over key leaders, especially Pakistani leaders, enough to keep the violence which flows through Pakistan (before overrunning Pakistan’s immediate neighbors), to a manageable level?
American behavioral control science is a very powerful tool, originally developed by Nazi mind-control scientists, working in prison and labor-camps, where they were free to operate outside the laws which bound ethical scientists. The Nazi sciences (upon which all further mind-control research is based) were developed by immoral men, working under “mad scientist” conditions, where the screams of the hopeless and dying human guinea pigs fell on deaf ears. These evil scientists were afterwards recruited by the American and British secret agencies to develop the means of mass control and the capability to destroy the wills of individuals, in order to replace them with new artificial wills created for them by state scientists.
This is the particular branch of the mind-control sciences that has been used to take over political movements, using reprogrammed leaders to reprogram armies of state assassins with the will to murder individuals and groups of people who interfere with the plans of the Imperial state. The awesome power of this mind-science to override the human will of select candidates can be seen in the proliferation of young, illiterate “suicide bombers” waiting to blow themselves to smithereens in the midst of enemies of the Empire. The teachers of the suicide academies in Pakistan’s tribal regions and other key locations have been taught an exact formula for tricking suggestible young minds into becoming enemies of the state and strangers to their own families. The false “Islam” concocted by the mad scientists of the state was a major part of the psychological programming mechanism.
Malleable young candidates from the local criminal classes are identified by agency sources, who employ careful psychological screening and profiling techniques (SEE: Semantic Stimuli Response Measurement ; MK ULTRA, PROJECT TALENT) to identify young potential psychopaths, providing the secret agencies with a bottomless pool of future “Manchurian Candidate” types. The violent actions of these reconditioned individual terrorists and terrorist leaders provided the psychological shocks needed to deploy the science of controlled tension. Through multiple violent shocks, the path of the targeted people is steered in a particular direction. In a master work of intricate planning and preparation, the combined work of multiple psywar operators, running separate though connected operations, has produced a unique “symphony of terror” which is building to an anticipated ultra-violent climax, or “Final Movement.”
With such awesome capabilities to override, or preprogram human minds to carry out violent actions not of their will, one would be inclined to think that there is nothing standing in their way, no matter what violent road they choose to force us down next. If there were not some major glitches tripping them up, then there should be very little standing in the way of fulfilling American plans for south and Central Asia. If their power was truly beyond challenge then there would have been no need for the “reset” with Russia, unless that too was just another part of the secret plan that is beyond my understanding.
Should we take heart in the possibility that American behaviorists might be losing control of events in either Pakistan or Central Asia? Has their strategy of tension and chaos run-up against its own limitations in forcing these unwanted changes upon the minds of unconditioned Asians? One thing is certain, the political pressure that American psy-warriors have pumped-up there will not be made better by the sudden eviction of American forces from the area. The situation will explode there if people even suspect that the restraining force that is being exerted by American conflict managers is just taken away.
In the Central Asian hotspots, unnecessary American and Russian meddling have made the lives of millions highly unstable and unbearable, while setting in motion economic development projects that are driving everyone there to a point of decision. Multiple pressure cookers are on the verge of blowing there. In Pakistan and India, every conceivable point of conflict between the nuclear-armed enemies has been intentionally magnified by American covert forces far past the “point of no return,” which would have ignited the next Indo-Pakistani war in normal times. On the sub-continent, you can see the duplicitous American policies at work, where one hand agitates the opposing sides, while the other hand busily intervenes diplomatically and economically to restrain the impulse to war. American foreign policy is both “yin” and “yang” in one, giving and taking in unequal portions, in order to maintain an agitated state in its victims.
If this formula for perpetual tension is inadvertently allowed to cause an explosion in this nuclear arena, then it will be the greatest tragedy of our time and it will all be by our own doing, all according to careful design. American leaders have put selfish interests ahead of the well-being of one-fourth of the planet’s human population to set up this great game. The Mumbai attackers should be considered as a major element of this design, as should support for TTP militants in Balochistan or anywhere in Pakistan. The Mumbai attackers, as well as attacks by the TTP terrorists, are clearly state-sponsored acts of war by someone. In these examples, the source of the state terror is the same. Since that time, the sponsors of the attacks have kept the two sides from destroying each other. Peace between them can only be possible if the source of the destabilization that drives their passions is exposed, as a preliminary first step to removing the metastasizing Imperial cancer which undermines the souls of both nations.
The long-simmering feuds between Central Asian neighbors have been intensified according to American master design, partly by reigniting Soviet-era tensions. The Rogun Dam project is a good case in point. The revival of this long-abandoned project by Western investment centers, in an operation fronted by a Russian oligarch, has upset the dominoes which were carefully arranged by the original Soviet mind-meddlers. Oleg Deripaska is chief executive of Rusal the Russian aluminum monopoly and principle owner of TadAz aluminum refinery in Tajikistan. He has been working to get Western cash to pump-up interest in the long-dormant Soviet-era Rogun dam/hydroelectric project, in addition to financing a hostile takeover of Norilsk Nickel (SEE: Russian Financier Seeking US Help for Hostile Takeover of Norilsk Nickel).
The dam project harms Uzbek/Tajik relations and would create a major environmental disaster, depriving the rapidly disappearing Aral Sea of replacement water. In addition to this, the interruption of water flowing from Tajikistan to Uzbekistan and the Ferghana Valley will bring about the easily anticipated interruption of electricity transmission, flowing from Uzbek soil to its users in Tajikistan. The first Western pipelines have not even been built yet, but it is evident that the interstate flow or transmission of anything in this charged region is highly problematic.
The amazing part of this destabilization in Central Asia is that it is all taking place even though American military planners have determined that a Northern Distribution Network through this region is critical to the war in Afghanistan. It is as though CIA brainwashers and manipulators were on a completely different page from American military planners. That is the mind-numbing aspect of all of this: That Imperial planners seem to always lay-up obstacles to their own plans. It is impossible for a rational mind to understand a process such as this, where defeat of your own purposes is the solution which was originally sought. Somehow, defeat is victory.
Brave new logic or something beyond logic? Is this illogical reality (where every victory is a partial or total defeat) really the desired end product, or is it merely the best that power-mad men can do? Should we take comfort in knowing that every ambitious psychological plan carries with it the seeds of its own defeat? Is it reassuring to think that every ambitious plan made by dedicated evil men is sabotaged by secret actions taken by equally dedicated good men?
We can see the consistency of this pattern’s repetition throughout our history, where some outside force always intervenes “out of the blue” to screw-up the best laid plans, indicating that there are forces which operate outside our field of vision, which steer our movement towards a path of evolution, instead of towards our pre-determined path of human devolution. It suggests either a “higher power,” or the actions of ordinary humans who answer to a higher ideal. Perhaps the inevitable stumbling of the plotters can be summed up to no more than fulfillment of the adage about “good men” doing something to prevent the “triumph of evil.”
We seem to do everything backwards, taking preventive measures to avoid the pitfalls of our fears, which actually cause those fears to come about. Is that the mark of human ineptitude or does it credit someone for the perfect execution of a complex plan? I believe that the correct answer lies somewhere between those two possibilities; someone has been expertly executing a very complex plan for us, but it has been far from a perfect operation. I think that this part of the plan for world domination has run up against some impenetrable walls of human nature, that no amount of aggressive capitalist diplomacy could force itself through.
This is particularly true of our efforts in the terror war, allegedly being fought to avoid our latest worst fear, that of a worldwide Islamic “caliphate” taking away our American way of life. If this alleged “caliphate” presented a real threat to US national security, then we would take steps towards eliminating that threat, instead of creating the conditions which could allow that fear to come true.
We secretly acknowledge that the goal of American war on Pakistan is to empower a stable friendly government there and to secure their nukes from scary “Islamists,” but our actions there make such an outcome even more likely. Obama’s constant pushing against Pakistani leaders to force his will upon them will have a disastrous effect on all of his pipeline plans, yet he doubles Predator strikes and sends Special Forces across the border, nonetheless. The temporary closing of the border was just the beginning of the retaliation from Pakistan, which must come, if Pakistan is to survive the time bomb we have set in their heartland.
If Barack Obama is even half human he will correct what has been done and what is planned. I cannot begin to comprehend the illogic in exploding Pakistan just when we need her help the most in Afghanistan, but even a psychopathic personality that only mimics the logic of reasoning must understand the superior logic in changing our present course and treating Pakistanis like our most loyal allies and the rest of the people of the world as fellow human beings.
If is works out that the illogical solutions that are being forced upon us are being disrupted by some intervening power, possibly a force working for good, then should we see it as the intervention of a higher power, or is it just the expected outcome of an ideology of good men working against the triumph of evil? We are dealing with issues of Biblical prophetic proportions here, yet we continue to view them through the lens of petty political struggle. We have been beat down for so long that we don’t realize that the time has come for us all to look up. The dark despair that threatens to drown us all should be interpreted as a sign of hope, the deepest darkness that comes just before the dawn.
There truly is a time in the affairs of men when enormous profound changes are possible, if people of common will are willing to stand together as one. I know that we are in one of those pre-epochal moments in human history, at least in modern history. There are so many people in so many countries waiting to do the right thing for the family of man. They are a force for good that we can count upon to provide stability and sanity, when the people of the world step forward from the darkness and reclaim their lives from the gatherer of human souls.
The knowledge that good men will stand up and do the right thing in the end does not relieve the rest of us lesser mortals of the responsibility to act when it is our time. We must count ourselves on the side of good, as well, because our better destiny demands it of us. We are the good men who must stand up and be counted, placing our lives in the path of the triumphant evil.
