The USA has shaped the overthrowing of Governments into an Art Form. The responsibility for the Ukraine fiasco starts with the GOP, the Grand Old Republican Party of the USA or with whoever controls the USA nowadays but it is certainly not the president. This event was managed by the US diplomat for European and Eurasian affairs, Victoria Nuland.
Victoria Nuland admits that the US has invested $5 billion in the development of Ukrainian ‘democratic institutions’ and has spent five years on the effort.
Here she can be heard discussing the operation with Geoffrey R. Pyatt, United States Ambassador to Ukraine.
Those mentioned include:
Vitali Klitschko, Mayor of Kiev and leader of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform
Arseniy Yatsenyuk (rechristened to “Yats”) Future Prime Minister
Jeff Feltman, head of the United Nations Department of Political Affairs
Robert Serry, Dutch diplomat serving as United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process
Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations
Jake Sullivan, national security advisor to Joe Biden
Joe Biden, Vice President USA
Viktor Yanukovych, President of Ukraine
Victoria Nuland appears to be act on instinct, allows herself to be bugged and thus gives away her attitude and thankfully shows that this is the essence of the US Attitude to the European Union. It is totally unprofessional.
Why on Earth the US should get itself involved with the destabilisation of Europe is another matter. A strong European Government would not be tolerating this attitude.
The US formula for overthrowing a government is:
1. Find some opposition … ANY opposition in the country. Your best bet is some rich members of a former oligarchy or former military. Begin giving them funds and start training them etc
2. Come up with some reasons that the current government must go. The reasons could be true or not; that is irrelevant. A popular one to use would be economic issues.
3. Buy and/or infiltrate significant media outlets. Use these outlets to whip up a broader backlash against the leaders.
4. Meanwhile, use overt and covert means to destabilise the economy.
5. Infiltrate some unions. You’ll need some protesters in the streets. You can pay protesters to come. That’s fine.
6. Stage some opposition rallies. If possible, shoot some of the protesters and blame this on the government. This has worked well in many coup attempts. Obviously, do not tell the protesters of your intentions.
7. Ramp up the anti-government rhetoric from the media outlets you control. Be completely outrageous. Call for demonstrations. Slander government officials. Do whatever it takes. etc
8. Go to the CIA rolodex, and find out who the agency controls in domestic media and get them to begin reporting on the opposition movement in ways that make it look legitimate…..
9. Don’t actually kidnap the leader. He should be killed, otherwise, they will talk.
The complete list is recognisable from the recent history of Ukraine, especially number 6; shoot some of the protesters and blame this on the government.
The snipers who shot and killed 90 protesters and police in Kiev were hired by Maidan leaders, according to this leaked phone conversation between the EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister
More unprofessionalism. This is diplomacy and mismanagement at its worse and thankfully given away by carelessness.
With the release of this tape the game was up and if Catherine Ashton had any wit about her she should have abandoned the whole project there and then, but worse was to come; a second False Flag event, the downing of Flight MH17 with the loss of 298 lives. Some consider that the downing of Flight MH370 to have been a trial run for the later event.
The cat is out of the bag and the result of this foolish escapade is; 1,000,000 displaced, 2,000 dead, a bankrupt Ukraine and a nigh on bankrupt Europe.
This government of Cameron’s will never admit to it, but the result will most surely be felt in the Tory Party for many years to come.
The US hands are on the tiller of the European Union and most certainly the politicians in Cameron’s government and those of the European Union had not the nous to comprehend that this was going to end in a mess. Vladimir Putin once said “one could simply die” listening to the fractious debates of the European Union.
All European countries and especially the ex- Soviet satellites are hit to varying degrees by the craziness of the sanctions on Russia.
The consensus must be that the EU has shot itself in the foot.
France stands to lose a $1.6 billion warship contract, Poland loss of $1.3bn, maybe permanent, Czechoslovakia $133 million, Lithuania $60mn
Hungary, obtained a 10 billion-euro ($13.2 billion) Russian loan this year to finance a nuclear power plant expansion, has much to lose.
And so this sorry tale continues.
