Stiff Right Jab: Russia – Bear Trap Alliance?

Wednesday, 26 September 2001 12:00 AM

Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville, in his 1835 classic, "Democracy in America," displayed remarkable insight regarding the nature and destiny of Russia, as contrasted with the nature and destiny of the United States.

His words were prophetic:

All other nations seem to have nearly reached their natural limits, and only to be charged with the maintenance of their power; but these are still in the act of growth; all the others are stopped, or continue to advance with extreme difficulty; these are proceeding with ease and with celerity along a path to which the human eye can assign no term. The American struggles against the natural obstacles which oppose him; the adversaries of the Russian are men; the former combats the wilderness and savage life; the latter, civilization with all its weapons and its arts: the conquests of the one are therefore gained by the ploughshare; those of the other by the sword. The Anglo-American relies upon personal interest to accomplish his ends, and gives free scope to the unguided exertions and common-sense of the citizens; the Russian centers all the authority of society in a single arm; the principal instrument of the former is freedom; of the latter servitude. Their starting-point is different, and their courses are not the same; yet each of them seems to be marked out by the will of Heaven to sway the destinies of half the globe.

Alexis de Tocqueville was correct. And although we would like to hope de Tocqueville's words are not irreversible regarding Russia, yet as things now stand, who can dispute their truth?

Now, you may be asking yourself why we bring this forecast out of the woodwork in the midst of our war on terrorism. Simply because the Bush administration has begun to forge an unholy alliance with Russia in the war on terrorism, and we submit that de Tocqueville's insight is a far more accurate guide relative to Russia today than the blind, undermining, pro-new world order counsel the Bush administration receives daily from his Council on Foreign Relations-dominated State Department and national security staff. There is evidence aplenty that this is so.

This column has warned repeatedly over the past two weeks that the United States was planning to enroll the No. 1 sponsor of international terrorism, Russia, as an ally in our war against terrorism. Incredible as it seems, we are now seeing the same mistakes repeated that we made during our "alliance" with Joe Stalin at the end of WWII. Of course, we all know where that "friendship" ended.

Here's the game plan.

In Stage 1, which is already taking place, Russia has armed, at the request of the United States, anti-Taliban militants and opened up her bases as a staging ground for the U.S. military.

In Stage 2 expect a permanent Russian occupation force in Afghanistan, as well as a healthy flow of U.S. aid, U.S. technology, and U.S. security secrets spilling into Russia to assist it with its internal battle against "terrorism" (opposition).

In Stage 3 – which is a constant – expect our aid and shared secrets to be used against the United States and free people everywhere, even as the old Soviet Union re-unites under the leadership of Mother Russia.

On Christmas Day, 1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan with trucks and armored personnel carriers built at the colossal Kama River "truck" plant. A dozen American firms, including Ford Motor Company, Glidden Machine & Tool Company, Gulf and Western Industries, Honeywell, the Swindell-Dressler Company, Warner & Swazey, the Ingersoll Milling Machine Company and the E.W. Bliss Company, were authorized by the U.S. government to supply the Soviets with technology and equipment needed to build and operate the plant.

U.S. officials responsible for this fiasco? Henry Kissinger, national security adviser to Nixon; George Shultz, then Nixon's treasury secretary, later Ronald Reagan's secretary of state; and William J. Casey, then head of the Export-Import Bank, which provided $153 million. Financing was arranged by David Rockefeller's Chase Manhattan Bank. Kissinger, Shultz, Casey and Rockefeller were all members of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Twenty-two years later, the Russians will invade Afghanistan again, this time not just with technology paid for in the USA, but with American soldiers by their side.

Still believe the misinformation you've been fed in the establishment press that times have changed in Russia? Keep following this column, for the rest of the story.

The Aug. 8 edition of The Scotsman reports: "Russia is continuing to operate Gulag-style labor camps where thousands of North Koreans toil under grim conditions. ... The camps supposedly closed down with the end of communism, but reports in Moscow say they continue to exist, with North Korea using the system as a way to pay off its 5.5 million [pound] debt to Russia."

The Sept. 10 New American adds: "The camps were supposedly shut down in 1993 – that is, two years after Communism "ended" in Russia. According to an Amnesty International report from the early 1990s, approximately 30,000 North Koreans were interned in camps scattered across the Siberian Wilderness, sleeping in primitive barracks and clad in prison garb.

"For disobedience there were severe penalties," observed The Scotsman. "Some prisoners were locked into all-body plaster casts or wrapped in chains."

If this is how modern "reformed" Russia treats its communist comrades, can you conjure a guess as to what they have in store for their American "allies" in the war against terrorism?

We are trying to figure out just who in Russia would do the best job of fighting the "terrorists" which, they say, now "plague" the old Soviet Empire. Or who can we trust with infusions of U.S. dollars, technology and insider security information to help them with their "holy" work? We've settled on the Russian Mob. After all, they have come to be known as the most brutal, vicious, efficient criminal network in the world – they know how to think like terrorists. And besides, they run things in Russia, own most of the property, are one with the KGB (now FSB), and have probably been active in training the terrorists – so who could hide from them?

They are also the same dedicated criminals and communists who have always run Russia.

In an April 1994 interview published in the International Herald Tribune, Georgian Mafia leader Otari Kvantrishvili confessed: "They write that I am the Mafia's godfather. It was Vladimir Lenin who was the real organizer of the Mafia and who set up the criminal state."

In 1995, former Lithuanian Vice President Algirdas Katkus stated that although "Westerners believe that the Mafia is the product of post-Communism ... in reality it is organized, staffed, and controlled by the KGB."

Yuri Maltsev, former senior adviser to Mikhail Gorbachev, stated in a May 1996 interview: "Russia has become the criminal capital of the world. In Russia today, the organized Mafia and the government are one and the same thing. They're two hands of the same ruling elite." This state of affairs began with the founding of the Soviet state. "The Soviet state security apparatus was essentially staffed by criminals collected from Russian prisons," Maltsev recalls. "In short, you had a criminal state using criminals to enforce what it called the law."

The United States has been active, since the "fall" of Communism, conducting joint training exercises involving the KGB (FSB) and our FBI in order to better fight organized crime. Bill Clinton was the chief instigator of this folly. Crime rates haven't lowered in Russia, but perhaps the Russians learned a bit more about U.S. security procedures and shared that information with their terrorist friends in the field.

On Aug. 3, 2001, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice unveiled plans to share missile defense technology, exchange defense plans, participate in joint warning exercises, and grant permission for Russia to purchase American-made military hardware.

Lest we forget, when Clinton allowed such sensitive secrets to get into the hands of the communists in Red China, we called it a treasonous and impeachable action. Nothing like blind partisanship to hush the crowd.

Before we move one step closer toward a "holy alliance" with Russia, we recommend that the Bush administration, Congress and all of America meditate upon the condition and nature of a bear, and stop pretending it to be that of a lamb. Tell your
