Putin’s Playbook?


Meanwhile, back in 1997…

The United Kingdom should be cut off from Europe.

Ukraine should be annexed by Russia.

The continental Russian-Islamic alliance ”lies “at the foundation of anti-Atlanticist strategy”. The alliance is based on the “traditional character of Russian and Islamic civilization”.

Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements — extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics.

Translated excerpts from The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia by neo-fascist political scientist Aleksandr Dugin, otherwise known as “Putin’s Brain”.

Probably just coincidence.

    Gee, it’s a whopping big conspiracy. The Gardai and army intelligence had better learn more Russian and Arabic to counter the growing threat.

          Well that’s me singing “Putin / Rasputin, Russia’s greatest love machine” for the day now….

    A hysterical fantasist’s nonsense, thrown out there by pnac or some other group of hegemonic headbangers to further demonise Russia and push for further control over the middle east..nothing new, still scary though, how much these shadow people want permanent war and inhumane destabilisation, Noonan is just the worst

      No one else needs to demonize Russia. They do a fine job of it all on their own.
      If Russians speak up or form political opposition with popularity, they get murdered on the way home, or poisoned, or dissapear.

      – i agree about nonsense. Putin finances different kinds of internal political dissent, left right up and down, not because he’s a good guy or pluralist, but because it is effective form of control over opposition. A proactive management of budding dissent. Underestimate and dumb down Putin and you’d be learning russian instead of gaelic, like the baltic states were made to.
