Does the Washington Establishment Seek War with Russia?

by Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org

Which does the Washington’s Establishment prefer: a U.S. President who wants to reach new agreements with Russia, or a U.S. President who wants to replace all of Russia’s allies?
What we’ve been having recently is solely Presidents who want to replace all of Russia’s allies — and they’ve been succeeding at that, so far:
They replaced Saddam Hussein.
They replaced Muammar Gaddafi.
They replaced Viktor Yanukovych.
They’re still trying to replace Bashar al-Assad, and also Iran’s leadership.
There still is question, however, as to whether U.S. President Donald Trump will continue this string; and many in America’s ‘news’media consider him to be too favorable toward Russia. The aristocracy own the few ‘news’media that have substantial audiences in the U.S., and their advertisers are also overwhelmingly owned by them; and the politicians’ campaigns tend also to be receiving most of their money from them; so, generally, it’s considered political suicide to buck what the few billionaires are rather united on in America, and what they seem quite united on right now is that Mr. Trump isn’t sufficiently anti-Russian. For a government official in this country to view Russia as even potentially an ally instead of an enemy, is increasingly viewed as treasonous in America, and any contacts that Mr.
Trump might have been trying to nurture so as to establish an alliance with Russia on anything — even merely an alliance against international jihadists — is being treated in America’s press as treasonous — as if Russia were still the entire U.S.S.R.; and communism were still a threat, and there still existed the Soviet Union’s military alliance, the Warsaw Pact, as being a counter-weight to America’s NATO alliance. But those assumptions about Russia are obviously false. So: do America’s billionaires still simply want to conquer Russia, instead of to be allied with it, even in that limited way, as a global alliance to crush jihadists?
The newsmedia pick up from the Democrats and the other neoconservatives, and therefore Trump is being pressed hard on his being ‘Putin’s stooge’ or even ‘Putin’s Manchurian candidate,’ though the presumption in those statements is that Russia is doomed to be America’s enemy unless America outright conquers it — and this is a war-mongering and arrogant presumption for the U.S. government to be making about Russia, and it’s also very far from being a realistic assumption about Russia. Will Russia tolerate having all of its allies overthrown by the U.S. (a project that the U.S. has already come close to completing)?
How many more U.S. nuclear missiles will Russia accept being placed near and on its borders in formerly allied countries that now are in NATO — that are in the anti-Russia military club, but were formerly in the U.S.S.R., or else in its Warsaw Pact? If you were a Russian, would you now be scared?
Trump made clear during his campaign, that he wants to be allied with Putin’s consistent war against “radical Islamic terrorism” — no one can challenge that Putin has always, and consistently, been uncompromisingly determined to oppose that — never to arm nor train jihadists like the U.S. and its Saudi ‘ally’ the Saud family, do (in order to overthrow Russia’s allies).
So: which of the two is scary — the Hillary Clinton and John McCain crowd, the neocons, who dominate both Parties and want to crush Russia; or the few people in Washington who (at least until Trump became elected) were that crowd’s enemies? It’s looking like Trump has joined the neocons, after an election in which he was opposed by them.
As soon as Trump became elected, his fear of being dubbed ‘Putin’s stooge’ or ‘Putin’s Manchurian candidate’ caused him to appoint a national-security team who were hell-bent on replacing Russia’s remaining allies, Iran and Syria. But even this hasn’t been enough to satisfy the neocons who run both Parties, and the newsmedia. Trump has been trying to accommodate the people who are doing all they can to bring him down, but it doesn’t seem to be appeasing them.
The Washington Establishment has terrified him away from his campaign promise of creating an alliance with Russia to cooperate together in wiping out jihadism — and jihadism is something that didn’t even exist in modern times until the U.S. and its Saud allies introduced it into Afghanistan in 1979 to overthrow the secular, Soviet-allied leader of that country, Nur Muhammed Taraki. This joint effort with the Sauds created jihadism in the modern age. Zbigniew Brzezinski said of his and the CIA’s and the Sauds’ achievement, in a 1998 interview, “Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it?” It became the model for what they’re now doing to Syria (which is causing all those refugees into Europe).

Trump had said that his top national-security priority would be against jihadism, not against Russia and its allies. But, so far, his foreign policy in this regard seems more like what had been widely anticipated in the event of a Hillary Clinton win. (Even Trump’s focus against “radical Islamic terrorism” is directed now almost exclusively against seven mainly Shiite nations that America’s Saudi allies — who are fundamentalist Sunnis and hate Shia muslims — despise. So: it’s no different from Hillary Clinton’s. And two of those Shiite-run nations, Iran and Syria, are backed by Russia; so, Trump might just be continuing his predecessor’s pro-Saud policy there.)
Yet nonetheless, the neoconservatives press on with investigations of whether Trump is a secret Russian agent. The leading headline in the Wall Street Journal on March 30th was “Trump’s Rapid Rapprochement Plans With Russia Fade” and the report noted that Trump’s appointees are advising him against any relaxation of the previous President’s anti-Russia policies, but failed to indicate that (with the exception of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson), all of them are long-committed neoconservatives and NATO enthusiasts. Either candidate Trump’s ameliorative statements regarding Russia were intended merely in order to win votes, away from the super-hawk Hillary Clinton, from some independents and Bernie Sanders supporters, or else Trump is very easy for the Cold War Establishment (the “neoconservatives,” today’s Washington Establishment in both Parties) to manipulate.
What does the Washington Establishment really want? What is their real demand? Putin’s head on a stake? Or. do they really want Trump’s head on a stake, for some entirely different reason? The motivations that they are stating for wanting to replace Trump by his Vice President, Mike Pence — a rabid neoconservative — don’t make sense; and, the ‘evidence’ they’re basing this campaign on, is, as of yet, after months of trying, still more smears than authentic evidence. And it’s based on false allegations regarding America’s and Russia’s respective involvements in Ukraine and in Syria. Clearly, there are ulterior motives behind this coordinated bipartisan lying campaign. And they seem to be winning — whatever their real motivations are.
Is this a palace coup? And, if so, what’s the real motivation for it? Why do they want Mike Pence to be the U.S. President? What’s their real goal in this bipartisan campaign to replace Trump with Pence?

The nuclear war is inevitable, like death, but not yet. When and how will this happen? Let me remind here a fragment of an ancient vision: “And [the king of the north] will go back (to) his land with great wealth [1945. This detail indicated that Hitler will attack also the Soviet Union and will fight to the bitter end. In the beginning there were no signs of such the ending of this war]; and his heart (will be) against the holy covenant [Soviet Union introduced state atheism]; and will act [it means activity in the international arena]; and turned back to his own land [1991-1993. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Russian troops returned to their country]. At the appointed time [he] will return back.” (Daniel 11:28, 29a) The return of Russia in this context also means the breakup of the European Union and NATO.
“And [the king of the north] will enter into the south [this can be Georgia], but it will not be as the former [2008 – Georgia] or as the latter [Ukraine], for the dwellers of coastlands of Kittim [USA, in the beginning without Britain] will come against him, and he will be dejected, and will go back.” (Daniel 11:29b, 30a)
What will induce the “king of the north” to enter into the south? Jesus said: “For nation will rise against nation”, as in 2008 in Georgia, and then will be U.S. intervention and global nuclear war. As Jesus foretold, it will be “the beginning of birth pains”. (Matthew 24:7, 8; Revelation 6:4)
In 1882 British troops occupied Egypt. Great Britain then took the role of “the king of the south”. Around the same time, Russia expanded its influence in the region, which previously belonged to Seleucus I Nicator, and took the role of “the king of the north”. (Daniel 11:27)
It is no coincidence that Barack Obama wins presidency in 2008 and 2012. God in this way has secured us against a premature world war. The first should be the return of Russia, and then the war, and not vice versa. (cf. Jeremiah 1:12) The victory of Donald Trump also is not accidental. There is hope for improvement in Russian-American relations. The world will be safer, at least for a moment.

“How does one overcome illusions? Surely not by force or anger. Nor by OPPOSING them in ANY way. Merely by letting reason tell you that they CONTRADICT reality. They GO AGAINST what must be true. The opposition comes from THEM, and NOT reality. Reality opposes nothing. What merely is, NEEDS no defense, and offers none. Only illusions need defense, BECAUSE OF WEAKNESS. And how CAN it be difficult to walk the way of truth, when only WEAKNESS interferes? YOU are the strong ones in this seeming conflict. And you need NO defense. Everything that needs defense YOU DO NOT WANT. For anything that needs defense will WEAKEN you.” (ACIM)
This is profound, and reassuring – more so than all the noise from all directions on the interweb. What is ACIM?

Apr 3, 2017 2:10 PM

A Course in Miracles. ACIM. A tool is not more or less than the purpose for which it is used. While the active purpose is a desire for true sanity of coherence and congruity, of being, then not only will everything in our mind and world be fitted to such purpose – but we attract into our life, things, relationships, events, thoughts and teachings that resonate with our desire. ACIM is an example of such for me – but there are as many forms of the Universal Course as there are individuals to recognize and accept truth because it is true.
Inspirations can serve as a tuning fork by which to recognize and release the dissonant – rather than persist in the struggle of seeking to make true as if to gain validation from struggle.
A Course in Miracles is released from copyright and can be freely accessed online or purchased in print. Resonance and relevance to who we truly feel ourselves to be is no necessarily the linear development of a set identity.

” . . . as if Russia were still the entire U.S.S.R.; and communism were still a threat, . . . ”
Was the U.S.S.R. ever ‘a threat’?
“Taken together, these four volumes constitute an extraordinary commentary on a basic weakness in the Soviet system.
The Soviets are heavily dependent on Western technology and innovation not only in their civilian industries, but also in their military programs.
An inevitable conclusion from the evidence in this book is that we have totally ignored a policy that would enable us to neutralize Soviet global ambitions while simultaneously reducing the defense budget and the tax load on American citizens.”

@postkey: I’m with you. The relationship between Capitalism and Communism was more symbolic and symbiotic than most would care to admit. Reading Sutton, the myth of the Cold War of ideologies, of East v West, simply collapses. It also puts into perspective the so called “Russian Reset”; and the Wikileaks revelations about John “molester” Podesta’s ties with Putin-backed Joule Unlimited – and HRC’s involvement in the Uranium One/Rosatom deal in return for $145m in ‘donations’. 20% of a strategic asset sold to Putin? As much as it is about profit, it also appears to me that the western ‘Jeckyl’ needs the eastern ‘Hyde’ to offer itself some sort of validity? How else do you justify a $650 bn death machine?

It’s difficult to understand who the American ruling elite want to fight first, is it Russia… or China? It’s like the situation before WW1 where the British Empire was obsessed with the rise of Imperial Germany and how to stop the Germans becoming the dominant power in mainland Europe and then a power to rival the British Empire.
Today the US looks at China in the same way. The rise of China is a direct challenge to the United States. The alliance between Russia and China is a nightmare for the Americans because if one adds China’s vast population, industrial capacity, to Russia’s colossal natural resources and oil and gas; this means that they control virtually all of the Eurasian land mass with the Americans outside looking in… enviously. So Russia and China become the great power of the 21st century and the core centre of the world’s wealth and power.
But breaking Russia and China apart is going to be incredibly difficult. Who does one attack first, Russia or China. That seems to be the question in Washington. How of earth does one change the regimes there? Russia is far more powerful militarily than China, so a confrontation with China first would appear to be the sensible way to proceed, before China becomes too powerful to attack. Trump seems to prefer to confront China because he’s a business man and Russia isn’t a great industrial and trading rival compared to China. But Trump appears to be in a minority, everyone else seems to want to leave China until another day and confront Russia instead. A quick war in Europe, where the Russian army is crushed is perceived as a way to topple Putin from power, then with a pro-US regime in Power in Moscow would leave China very isolated and open to US pressure.
Both these US policies are, arguably, insane and completely at odds with the realities of the alliance between Russia and China, where both governments are absolutely awar of what the Americans are planning and how much they need each other.

[[ It’s difficult to understand who the American ruling elite want to fight first, is it Russia… or China? ]]
Surely it’s North Korea? A country with no allies like to come to its aid against the jelly-wobbling yankees, and whose population – in the eyes of the average retarded American – still deserves an ass-whooping for their failure to capitulate to Froghorn Leghorn in the Korean War.
The escalating spew of rhetoric coming out of Washington seems calculated to lure any potential ‘seconds’ to NK out of their corners – so far even China has remained tight-lipped… meaning that any combined US/Japanese assault of Pyongyang would go unchallenged.

But an attack on North Korea, which seems to be what Trump is hinting at, would be an attack on China too, as NK is one of China’s few foreign allies. It could bring war and chaos right up to China’s borders, with perhaps millions of refugees flooding into China and causing chaos. How should China respond to a US attack on NK? It would be an incredible humiliation for China and show the Chinese regime as both incompetent, weak and held in contempt by the Americans. First China, then Russia.

Does this ‘ruling power class’ actually fight among its own – or does it enact a sacrificial blood-letting upon which to engorge and gratify a sense of power over life? The very idea of power – as we generally use it, corrupts.
Is it meaningful to regard corporate or national ‘powers’ or their apparent leaders as discrete entities?
Are they puppet masters or themselves puppet to ideas they know not of?
Do we in turn align in a similar posture of ‘someone else must pay’ so that not to lose our face.
Do we hate the hidden hate and fear that our masking, faces away from, so as to seem or pass off without exposure?
Is the human story of discovery, possession and control, a cover story over a great human evasion – the fact of which is the last thing we would notice?
To what degree is an autonomous sense of freedom and independence (from such exposure) an automaton or golem, driven by a willingness to sacrifice for power in blame, rejection and denial?
Does the acceptance and enacting of a false mind or usurping narrative identity, align us in support of the very thing we say we hate? As in the metaphor of the ‘Matrix’ where what seems a ‘life’ is part of a battery system of support for that which feeds illusions in return for life-energy?
I cannot go ‘deeper’ in anyone else’s perspective. I can only look within and be listen or feel there. Intimacy is associated with the despoiling, loss and betrayal of love and life. But an actual intimacy is none of these things.
The generation of conflict keeps us ‘safe’ from knowing anything true. But someone must pay.

Possibly. But an attack on N Korea might also be the Pentagon’s way of prising China away from N Korea. Faced with nuclear annihilation, China may prefer to hang Pyongyang out to dry. China’s support for Pyongyang is already spotty at best – but its love for America is boundless.

The American system is not democracy because billionaire oligarchs change presidential policy against the mandate given by the people.
The American people need to realise that and storm the billionaires’ fortresses. Peacefully to begin with, but prepared to burn them down if the billionaires refuse to desist.
Making the billionaires extremely unwelcome, threatened, is what it will take to stop them subverting electoral outcomes…..

Historian Mr Eric Zuesse is obviously correct in citing the ” battle to mind control the North American general public’s opinions ‘ , as the contininuing base of the so-called ” aristocracy of robber-barons as in earlier times who can only further enrich themselves by this mind control “.
But, I think his remarks in the Saudi Arabian context : that the Islamic peoples of the Sunni popular schism hate the Islamic peoples of the Shia schism is not in fact correct, because the basic daily teachings of both groups of Islamic believers are in fact the same – and indeed they both embrace all of the ” brotherhood of worldly mankind as brothers in law “.
Of course as the historian correctly cites the hateful and politically disgraced person, Mr Zbigniew Brzezinskiin in his boasting about the creation of the false division of the two Islamic groups in Afghanistan to enable the the USA military and the CIA to profit and control the worlds drug trade, by the over-throw of a Russian- protected Afghanistan socialist government. A military practice as old as recorded history – perfidious Albion for example !
As for the division between the so-called Eastern and Western territorial nation states of the Globe, it is worth considering which of these two divisions, has more nuclear armed nation States and humanity to defend it-self, in this ever more shrill war-mongering actions of the USA self acclaimed ” exceptional-boasting ” .
Even nearly 90 years ago in my childhood, I well remember my parents and all similar adults categorising this exceptional North American boasting – as simply ‘ Bull shit’ , as it became self-evident to me during my conscription to the UK armed forces ?

Are wars what they seem – a struggle between powers? Or are they the mind’s power to assert a conflicted state upon the power of life, so as to sow division and confusion by which to exploit and manipulate fragmented and polarised minds, unlike and other?
Is not much of the trouble abroad a means to divert from and persist in trouble at home?
And the trouble at home presented as provocation by which to be baited into intended and directed reaction?
The ‘US’ is being used – as most else is being used – by the purpose of deceit or self-illusion.
Deceit frames and suggests illusion as true. But our investment in the illusion of power demands sacrifice of true in allegiance to its god – as our ‘self’. False-framed reality is increasing obvious as a narrative that ‘controls’ the setting and range of choices available. To react within the framing is to have taken the bait and chosen to play out the role accorded by unconscious urges through which manipulators work.
This next para from my daily reading of a work I find a greater sense of communication than words:
“How does one overcome illusions? Surely not by force or anger. Nor by OPPOSING them in ANY way. Merely by letting reason tell you that they CONTRADICT reality. They GO AGAINST what must be true. The opposition comes from THEM, and NOT reality. Reality opposes nothing. What merely is, NEEDS no defense, and offers none. Only illusions need defense, BECAUSE OF WEAKNESS. And how CAN it be difficult to walk the way of truth, when only WEAKNESS interferes? YOU are the strong ones in this seeming conflict. And you need NO defense. Everything that needs defense YOU DO NOT WANT. For anything that needs defense will WEAKEN you.” (ACIM)
Sovereignty of will, (freedom in being) is usurped by the attempt to empower a separate mind as a body over other bodies and over its world. What is a separate mind? Secret or masked intent and agenda that SEEMS to relate and communicate while actually operating to obfuscate and disrupt communication so as to redefine reality in its own image and terms. If this program should pause even a moment – the true will rises as the recognition one does not want it, and this truth accepted, releases allegiance and resort to it for self.
Does a war-based mind seek war? Always and in all ways. Rule out division instead of the tempt to rule out from it. The war-minded cannot turn this around. Our mind-set has to be re-evaluated from a perspective beyond its own framing. This is the choice we do not know we are making… until such perspective finds our mind un-clothed – despite all presentations to the contrary.
The wish for war is the refusal to open to a true relational communication. The wish that overrides true desire is the father of the lie. What else but war can come of forcing against your own will as the wish for power over life – in place of living within the power of life? No one wants to lose this power – and so no one sees the true cost of pain and loss that its allegiance demands. For such exposure is denied by ‘seeing’ the fault in others and war must force them to comply or deny them life.

what is ACIM?

Apr 3, 2017 4:08 PM

I answered somewhat in another post reply to you. What it is intended to be and what it is used for may be at variance – that is the freedom to accept or delay. But in terms of the world A Course in Miracles is a Text, a Workbook and a Manual for teachers, by which to recognize and re-align the mind to teach and learn from an unconflicted source and nature – even amidst the results of having taught and learned conflict – and taken it to be our world or reality. So among other things, a miracle in this context, is a shift of perspective when a false sense of causality is released… along with the symptoms that it embodied – in timing of willingness to accept.
While the Course may seem abstract or otherworldly – one can see example in such things of our world as fake currency of narrative invested and believed from which outcomes follow as inevitable effect to the believed and accepted cause. One can point to this with the term ‘ego’ or ‘WW3’ – but one is the wish-belief from which the symptoms arise and witness to. Only in general we don’t call or see such beliefs, while they operate as (accepted) reality.
I know I answered twice. I simply enjoyed doing so. But your joy is your own path of an unfolding discovery – if you will – and meets what serves you in who you are the being of. I say this because I don’t see different sources of inspiration as being of conflicted purpose – regardless their form – if the embodiment of them in our lives is a receptivity to and honouring of the freedom of each other.

You are somewhat saying what my ‘question’ implied, for the acting out of competing ‘powers’ is nurtured as the narrative for public consumption – by which indeed a population may be literally entrained and consumed.
The mind-capture beneath market share, asset stripping and power fed thereby, is subtler and more pervasively inhibiting of freedom to live and grow from within. Indeed such a technocracy of systemic imposition replaces the relational field with the ‘mind’ of the automaton. Life lived is out of bounds – save as a carrot by which to come under the stick.
The consolidation of power – as the world worships power – operates corporately across boundaries and beneath and behind the scenes such that in due turn – those means that were used to break the old patterns will themselves be broken – so that no threat or rival will exist or rise but to be cut off or shut down. This creeping paralysis holds a horror that turns a mind away to focus instead in the dynamics of conflict – as if it can be won, or in distraction – as if it can actually escape.
Perhaps it becomes clearer now, that the power of illusion, operates an illusion of power, that baited carrot by which to forget the true by eliciting investment in the false and the accepting of its framing as our thinking. Fear of loss of power to not suffer further hurt or loss, sets the mind into unquestioning compliance, while compensatory identities express rebellion along the various templates provided or subverted.
But the power of illusion is the embodiment of creative imagination – and does not have to be focused within and harnessed to the war-mind of a weaponised and marketized identity. Nothing has built in or fixed meaning – unless your mind says so and you choose to believe it and act as if true.
RT says ‘question more’. I suggest to ‘Question Everything! For the basis upon which we think and feel, provides the perception-experience to which we automatically react. Becoming self-aware of our conditioning is an expansion of creative possibility – but not when addicted to the fix of an old identity-investment. I see that running dry, cutting off its own supply and masking powerlessness with every kind of nonsense – to which sacrifice must be made so as not to allow exposure. Yet what is that but fear of pain and loss! Is this actually the god we seek to appease? Is this the thinking that is given priority beneath our scenes?
Running on a negative self-definition can only result in a negative result. Imposing and enforcing an overlay of apparently positive spin not only compounds the error, it fakes, dilutes and undermines the true positive. A demon-fear given protection, becomes the demonizing of our joy. It turns life inside out and back to front. Everything is backwards! (So take of the mind-adjuster).
What is the ‘self’ exactly? For we are in effect acting from what we accept to be true for us in each and every moment. …Is it true…? How much exposure to self-honesty can we access or allow?

After witnessing the Bush administration slaughter 3000 American civilians live on TV, you have to conclude that they are capable of absolutely anything if they see profit in it.
America is a country where violence is normalised to such a degree that it is an every day occurrence. Just yesterday I watched an American advert about a young girl turning her fantasy of wanting to help kids get the football from the neighbours dog into becoming a technician for stealth bombers. Of course! That’s my first instinct when I want to help others…. duh! I could be helping planes bomb the living shit out of people without being seen. Not!

The insatiable, avaricious psychopaths who rule the planet will not rest from their quest of complete economic domination.
We, the people, must resist.
For the sake of our children and the Earth.

Apr 6, 2017 10:34 AM

I empathise with your feeling – but I call to resist the temptation to align in hate. Feel it? Yes. There is hurt within hate and a deep sense of violation of life being different than it ‘should be’ . So heartbreak is beneath the pain that set a heartlessness of unfeeling to anything that triggers the threat and pattern of the violation or betrayal of trust. The journey I sketch is what the ‘psychopathic’ mind embodies the denial and refusal of. You can recognize your own resonance with any energetic by its triggering your own sympathetic vibrations – for hating the hater is the propagation and reinforcement of a focus in hate.
Economic domination is a false economy. True economy balances and flows and works or not – and there is only limited capacity to argue with the truth of what fails to support life – for we kill ourself to do so.
So I call on king Midas to remind us that if we make a symbol of wealth the context of our world – and sacrifice all else to its ‘rules’ – then we lose the Living of a relational dance in life – for the static and meaningless idol.
You can only free yourself from tyranny of fear (hate) or false thinking (idols instead of the Living) – by truly living this moment and this day. Yet you can’t do that alone in isolating thought that rules out the felt quality of your relationship with others, with your world. So for the love of Life on Earth – resist the temptation to engage or persist in loveless thinking no matter how it presents itself. Love isn’t as the deceit-mind says – it is the movement and presence of life – free of the deceits that sacrifice true to have to keep up a masking compliance.
Making a new name by which to deny others is seeded by the energetic of denial – but once established, expands its usage to include others who don’t comply with imposed rules set to ‘save us’ and therefore are associated with the evil set against us.
But for sure, address criminal behaviour and call out deceits for what they are.
Beware becoming framed and set in terms that hack your own life to operate a hate agenda.
Pathology of psychic-emotional relationship and communication is basically the fracture of trauma that re-enacts itself through the millennia.
