Georgia-Russia: It's a Classic Brzezinski Project!
Part I August 14, 2008
Part II August 20, 2008
[An earlier abbreviated version of Part-1 was submitted as response to the analysis “The real meaning of the South Ossetian war: Russia strikes back”, Thursday, August 14, 2008. It was reprinted by Scoop. This enhanced 2-part essay expands upon that earlier analysis.]

[August 14, 2008] The blogosphere is now filled with a plethora of interesting analysis and postmortem of the Russian-Georgian conflagration. Many scholars, academics, and activists are weighing in with their analysis on what happened. The two most illuminating (as usual) have come from globalresearch.ca and can be read here and here. Some others have also provided good analysis and background perspectives, as for instance the erudite reports from stratfor, antiwar.com, rense.com, thenation.com, and also the one noted here.
However, while almost all of them rightly prognosticate a new “Cold War”, or that the Russians have finally come into their own under Vladimir Putin, they invariably imply this as an inadvertent by-product of the largely miscalculated events which can either lead to a broader war, or to a checkmate of the American empire! Inexplicably, even the usually forensic globalresearch authors (Chossudovsky and Lendman), while coming the closest to the blatant reality of hectoring hegemons, have not ventured to fully explore beyond the thin veil in the aforecited essays “War in the Caucasus: Towards a Broader Russia-US Military Confrontation?” and “Using Georgia to Target Russia”.
Lendmen comes the closest when he almost tepidly observes: 'The New Great Game – What's at stake is what former National Security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski described in his 1997 book “The Grand Chessboard.” ', but then stops short of full exploration.
Chossudovsky too, quite forensically observes: “The war on Southern Ossetia was not meant to be won, leading to the restoration of Georgian sovereignty over South Ossetia. It was intended to destabilize the region while also triggering a US-NATO confrontation with Russia.”, but surprisingly, doesn't mention Brzezinski at all! However, almost gingerly, he does ask at the conclusion of his detailed analysis: “Are we dealing with an act of provocation, with a view to triggering a broader conflict? Supported by media propaganda, the Western military alliance is intent on using this incident to confront Russia, as evidenced by recent NATO statements.”
My response to Michel Chossudovsky's careful tepidity is a forceful yes as is argued below! There can be no alternate rational explanation given the history of empire. And the mainstream media of course have done their job all too exceptionally well as is also argued below.
Consider the frightening prospect that both Chossudovsky and Lendmen have barely, but rightfully, hinted at: that Georgia's military buildup over the past years with a stooge at the helm of its affairs finally bursting her munificence in the provocative bombing of the Ossetian civilians in the middle of the night in the most despicable of ways, was an Anglo-American setup! A sting operation with a calculated opening gambit to compel the Russians to make their own forced move on the Eurasian Grand Chessboard precisely as they subsequently did!
The resulting political and military global climate so reminiscent of the “Cold War”, is neither an inadvertence, nor a miscalculation, as almost everyone else has projected. But rather, according to a cold-blooded premeditated plan for a “new world order” in which the import of Putin's 2007 observations are intended to become sardonically and completely realized.
Putin had not only warned of an autocratic-oligarchic world coming into being, but that it was so pernicious that it would destroy the nation purusing it. Well – both are intended to come true from the Anglo-American perspective. The destruction of America via the clandestine SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership) to create a new temporary Union en route to a world without independent nation-states that is ruled oligarchically under a singular central force. Here is Putin's relevant statements from the 2007 Munich Conference on Security Policy:
“The history of humanity certainly has gone through unipolar periods and seen aspirations to world supremacy. And what hasn’t happened in world history?
However, what is a unipolar world? However one might embellish this term, at the end of the day it refers to one type of situation, namely one centre of authority, one centre of force, one centre of decision-making.
It is world in which there is one master, one sovereign. And at the end of the day this is pernicious not only for all those within this system, but also for the sovereign itself because it destroys itself from within.
And this certainly has nothing in common with democracy. Because, as you know, democracy is the power of the majority in light of the interests and opinions of the minority.
Incidentally, Russia – we – are constantly being taught about democracy. But for some reason those who teach us do not want to learn themselves.
I consider that the unipolar model is not only unacceptable but also impossible in today’s world. And this is not only because if there was individual leadership in today’s – and precisely in today’s – world, then the military, political and economic resources would not suffice. What is even more important is that the model itself is flawed because at its basis there is and can be no moral foundations for modern civilisation.”
Put it another way, this Georgian-Russian conflagration is as much a miscalculation or happenstance in 2008, as George Kennan's “Truman Doctrine” was in seeding the Cold War in 1948. Provoking Russia is very much a component of the grand master plan and Putin well understands it. The gambit offered to Putin in Georgia has willingly been accepted because Russia too is fed up of the oligarchs' “New World Order” raping her and the rest of the pluralistic world. Putin sees Russia's destruction as a mighty nation and civilization, in her continued passivity and inaction. Among all the nations of Eurasia, Russia by far has paid the greatest price in the useless wars and machinations of the Anglo-American establishment during the 20th century. No more. No more Jews bringing revolutions to Russia, or pillaging its wealth, and no more petty fascists under imperial tutelage bringing wars to its ancient borders!
With that as the backdrop of overarching motivations, let's look at the American side. If such an opening gambit as argued above isn't its main purpose, then it was asinine for the Georgians to have attacked Ossetia like this.
As reported elsewhere, the Georgians have been fully armed and controlled by the US and Israel, with full intelligence available to them 24x7. The Georgian leadership is handpicked US-Israeli puppets. The fact that the Russians had anticipated the assault by Georgia and were already in formation close to the borders because of which they were able to retaliate so quickly, was known to the Americans. Thus why would the Americans goad/command the Georgians to attack when they could trivially predict this hard likely response by the Russians? Minimally, the Russian military mobilization at the border was a sure give-away! A Rand Corporation worth its salt plays out all war-game scenarios.
It is further worthwhile asking why would the Americans deliberately antagonize the Russians by ferrying Georgian soldiers from Iraq back to the Georgian frontlines so that they can contribute to Russian and Ossetian casualties? That's quite a needless and futile overt act of war directly by the United States against Russia – for what can an additional 2000 soldiers possibly accomplish against a modern Russian army which has a declared first-strike use of nuclear weapons as its well-publicized self-defense doctrine even in conventional precision warfare? This move by the Americans can only be understood rationally if the purpose is deemed to be deliberate nuancing of the loaded gun being held on Russia's head in America's opening gambit. If I was at the Rand Corporation, this ferrying idea might have sounded really awesome for adding fuel to the fire already lighted! Hey – perhaps the Russians can be coerced into shooting down a couple of those ferry boats! Notice how proxy wars are waged? The casualties are usually the patsies!
Lastly, in the attack by the Georgians, why would they concentrate on killing the Ossetian innocent civilians rather than take on/capture/disable things of military/civil significance if capturing the Ossetian capital and re-absorbing Ossetia into Georgia was the real goal?
Apart from being provocative, there was zero efficacy to this “surprise” attack by the Georgians upon the Russians (as Chossudovsky has also noted). The only peoples really surprised were the innocent victimized public on either side!
The one forensic explanation which wholly and rationally explains this (mis)adventure by Georgia is that from the Anglo-American perspective, it was a trap set for the Russians to behave exactly as they did. The Georgians and Ossetians are just disposable canon fodder – patsies like the Afghanis before them.
This operation has all the hallmarks of a Brzezinski proxy war on Russia leaving the Russians, once again, no choice but to intervene in Georgia as they did. Just like they had no choice as the former USSR, in their intervention in Afghanistan three decades ago when Zbigniew Brzezinski started giving aid to the Mujahideen under President Carter as deliberate premeditated provocation six months before the Soviet Union's intervention. All this is known history. Only its lessons seem to be forgotten all too quickly in the rush to be among the first to make one's analysis of what happened.
If the afore-stated opening gambit scenario is rational and plausible, as it appears to be if one looks at it from the geostrategic perspective on the Grand Chessboard, then it begs the obvious question why?
Why prompt this Russian Intervention in Georgia, and now? Let's flesh that out in the light of the afore-stated overarching motivations.
Just watch the worldwide mainstream news to know in a minute why!
OBL and Al-Qaida need replacing – the mantra is now well worn and not going down really well among the American and European public. “Islamofascism” has little utility in destabilizing Russia, while perhaps still potent for China. Thus the new boogieman of the “bad bear” has been craftily resurrected.
The consistent Western mainstream news reportage over the past week which has entirely blamed Russia for the conflict in the face of blatant facts to the contrary, validates this notion that the creation of this new mantra of “bad bear” is well orchestrated. Facts are only relevant to the creation of magical mantras if they support the mantras. Otherwise distortions, half-truths, outright bold lies, and the dialectics of deception suffice to construct new propaganda. The new mantra under construction projects the Russians as once again out to exercise their hegemony due to their inescapable genetic DNA that was previously manifested as the “bad” communist USSR, and now it's simply “bad” Russia! The basic propaganda is that the Russians cannot be trusted as nice “civilized” partners of the West and they are showing their true colors once again. That they must be re-feared by the world!
This is the most apparent and visible empirical reason for this gambit. Also watch how easily the hitherto continually morphing and entirely illusive “Al Qaida” leadership are now being suddenly found and systematically killed off in the escalation of bombings in the tribal belt region bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan by NATO, the United States Military, and the Pakistan Army. For seven years ten million tons of Depleted Uranium munitions were dropped on Afghanistan without getting the famous OBL.
Yet in the past few weeks, remarkably, many so called senior “Al Qaida” leadership have not only been killed from the air, but also assertively identified as leaders! Pakistani newspapers daily report some new “Taliban” or “Al Qaida” senior leader dead from the previous night's missile attack by NATO drones on the already impoverished rural population of Pakistan's tribal region. The increased indiscriminate killings of a 'lesser' peoples who have largely been written off from the pages of history as disposable fodder, is further bringing to a head the pre-planned destabilization and falling apart of Pakistan. It appears that the “bad bear” and “islamofascism” mantras may run in parallel for a while, until at least Pakistan is dismembered, but that the new mantra of “bad bear” is rapidly being cultivated as the new “doctrinal motivation” to take the latter's place for “imperial mobilization” in other parts of Eurasia.
The invisible or not so apparent reason, which one only understands if one looks behind the scenes towards the “forces that drive them”, in this case Zbigniew Brzezinski and his Anglo-American sponsors, the ruling interests are itching to also dismember Russia. And this deliberately provoked intervention of Russia into Georgia is merely the step-1, using a similar ploy as the Afghan Trap, but with the difference that this time it is part of a destabilization campaign right on Russia's long borders.
Additionally, keeping Russia busy on its flank while engaging Iran – if indeed Iran is actually to be bombed by Israel and/or the massive US naval armada now besieging her – makes short term military sense.
All ducks are lined up in a row as far as Russia hater, grandmaster Zbigniew Brzezinski – the architect of geostrategic primacy on the Grand Chessboard – is concerned.
However, as was noted by Project Humanbeingsfirst in its Press Release of June 30, 2008:
While Zbigniew Brzezinski may have planned the “Grand Chessboard” in the West, his Eurasian targets of the great game actually invented chess. All four of the regions burgeoning powers, Iran, India, China, and Russia, are ancient civilizations far older than the Atlantic powers put together, and are also expert chess players in the very ethos of the richness of their civilizations. Many public parks in Iran for instance, are dotted with stone and wood carved chess tables where ordinary peoples gather daily under the shady trees to spar with each other, bringing their own chess pieces. Chess is not an acquired skill in Asia, nor is it of recent acquisition, as it is for the West! It is innate to the peoples. The Chinese classic “Art of War” is 2500 years old and still teaches the Rand Corporation how to play their great games!
One given to intimately comprehending the perverse real-world of “hectoring hegemons” in which “safety” is only considered to be the “sturdy child of terror and survival the twin brother of annihilation”, would hope that the young Mr. Putin quickly re-introduces the “balance of terror” from the present day “unilateral terror”! The latter has always been an open license for exercising primacy for “full spectrum dominance” by anyone who can get away with it. It is a history “as old as mankind”! While both terror paradigms can wreck havoc upon the weak and the dispensable, “balance of terror” appears to be the only pragmatic solution for surviving this dastardly “New World Order” and derailing its “imperial mobilization” as noted in Project Humanbeingsfirst's report: “From Balance of Terror to Unilateral Terror on the Grand Chessboard!”.
The next rational step for Putin is to boldly initiate the extension of the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) towards a full spectrum mutual defense pact treaty across Asia, and to immediately offer its protection to Iran as its full member. If Iran falls like Iraq, so will Russia (eventually). Having nuclear weapons is no protection when a devilishly fomented civil war can easily tear a nation apart – just look at Pakistan (and of course the wolfish dismemberment of Serbia)! Next stop – Russia! Only in full spectrum alliances is there any assurance of postponing, and eventually defeating the plans for the New World Order. Some of the world's greatest minds and financiers have been preparing this masterplan for well over a century and its realization is rapidly proceeding on a logarithmic scale today. The US military power ominously besieging Iran and the rising crescendo of UN sanctions as a prelude to “shock and awe” leave little room for any delay or margin for optimism. There is no time for vacillation and false posturing by the pending victims as the lives of millions of humanity is at stake! One has got to put real teeth of real 'MADness' into one's bold self-defense!
A rational and pragmatic message of “balance of power” in order to immediately avert the twilight of civilization – while some among mankind's greatest murderers continue to assert the mal fide discourse learned at the dawn of civilization – brought to you by Project Humanbeingsfirst.org.
[August 20, 2008]: The fact that Russia has taken up the American opening gambit handed her and is actually responding with the next “Rand predicted move”, may be gleaned in this UK Telegraph article of August 15, 2008: “Russia destroying military bases in Georgia”. Apart from its self-explanatory title, the article notes: “While US military aircraft and warships are being sent to the region to deliver aid, and Miss Rice is due to visit the Georgian capital Tblisi on Friday, the presence of US soldiers in Georgia is also intended to send a strong signal to Russia of Washington's support for the government of President Mikheil Saakashvili.” Sky news reported the same day in its article “Russians 'Seize US Weapons Depot'”: “Relief planes have continued to fly into Georgia's capital Tbilisi with supplies for the estimated 100,000 people displaced by the fighting. US officials said their two planes carried cots, blankets, medicine and surgical supplies”.
Therefore, the afore-quoted “presence of US soldiers in Georgia” in the present tense, must logically imply such presence to have commenced from before the Georgian attack on Ossetia, since the United States proclaims to have only sent in relief supplies in its two plane loads and no military aid! This is official indirect confirmation of more than just the already known American and Israeli military advisors and military trainers being present in Georgia! Reuters had confirmed this presence on July 15, 2008 in its report titled “U.S. troops start training exercise in Georgia”, just three weeks before Georgia's attack on Ossetia, noting: “One thousand U.S. troops began a military training exercise in Georgia on Tuesday against a backdrop of growing friction between Georgia and neighbouring Russia”. Reuters reported that the “two-week long” exercise”, named “Immediate Response 2008”, which only serendipitously ended just one week before Georgia's midnight attack on Ossetian civilians, also comprised “600 Georgian troops and smaller numbers from ex-Soviet Armenia, Azerbaijan and Ukraine.” Are all these US soldiers and foreign mercenaries still in uniform? Or are they black-ops, part of some “Stay Behind Army” to engage the Russians? Wouldn't Putin know that after the Soviet experience in Afghanistan? And wouldn't the Americans know that the Russians would know that?
The Russian hard-nosed response of “cleansing” Georgia of American/Israeli military bases and attempting to disarm Georgia as the minimal act of carnage a “superpower” in its own right would inflict upon a provocative “gnat”, is an entirely logical and predictable military move after any invasion (provoked or premeditated). Both American and Israeli military occupations of others' homelands as well as Russia's own patsy intervention in Afghanistan prove this truism! Thus it cannot be a surprise – except for public consumption. The Russian response has entirely been anticipated at the Pentagon and Brussels' NATO planning headquarters! As per the disclosures of NATO's “Stay Behind Armies” during the Cold War under “Operation Gladio” in preparation for any hypothetical Soviet invasion of Western Europe, and as per the experience of “giving to the USSR its Vietnam War” in Afghanistan, the opening gambit by the Anglo-American ruling establishment in pathetically replaying history to attempt to destabilize Russia is quite transparent. I would have expected something far more creative from Brzezinski!
And as if on cue, Dr. Brzezinski graces us with the following as observed by SPIEGEL ONLINE in its aptly titled (for Pentagon purposes) article “THE DANGEROUS NEIGHBOR - Vladimir Putin Takes on a Powerless West” on August 18, 2008: “American Caucasus strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski has drawn parallels to Stalin and Hitler, equating the Russian invasion of a neighboring country with the Soviet winter war of 1940, when Moscow sought to undermine the sovereignty of small, sovereign Finland.” The article is worth reading in juxtaposition to the analysis presented in this humble essay which deconstructs Brzezinski's criminal strategies in order to acquire a complete picture of how reality is being un-imaginatively re-spun worldwide in almost about the same terms as during the 1979-88 period during the deliberately provoked Soviet Intervention in Afghanistan. Brzezinski at that time had been peddling the same “outrage” to the Afghanis and to the world with the same overzealousness as we see today. As covered in the Time magazine article of February 18, 1980, titled “Selling the Carter Doctrine”, which quoted Brzezinski: '“You should know that the entire world is outraged,” he told a group of refugees at Sadda, urging them in effect to reclaim their land “because God is on your side.”' This Brzezinski performance was captured in a minute long news clip which has been archived on the web. This is what he says in 1980:
News voice Feb. 1980: “US National Security Advisor Brzezinski flew to Pakistan to set about rallying resistance. He wanted to arm the Mujahideen without revealing America's role. On the Afghan border near the Khayber Pass, he urged the Soldiers of God to redouble their efforts”
Brzezinski Feb. 1980: (addressing the Mujahideen) “We know of their deep belief in God, and we are confident that their struggle will succeed.
(clapping by the ordinary simple looking rural people who had been forced out of their humble homes in Afghanistan and living in refugee camps on the Pakistani side, now assembled to listen to Brzezinski and being knighted as the Mujahideen)
Later, after the Cold War was over, Brzezinski confessed that he had set up the USSR, the Afghanis, the “mujahideens”, and the entire world in order to “make the Soviets bleed, for as much, as long, as possible.” (Ibid.) It is instructive to quote Brzezinski's full cold-blooded confession here to jog the mainstream presses hazy memories as they once again peddle the thinly veiled “American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives”:
Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?
Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.
Question: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn't believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don't regret anything today?
Brzezinski: 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? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.
When Brzezinski cold-bloodedly confesses to the “secret operation” as the “reality, secretly guarded until now”, ominously shows off his devilish prowess to setup any patsy “I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention”, subsequently gloats with criminal glee “The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war”, and Jimmy Carter ends up winning the Nobel Peace Prize after playing with the 'lesser' humanity's disposable blood, then why should anyone again believe the “American Caucasus strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski”?
Once proved to be a liar, any fair and rational court of law, as any informed public opinion, commonsensically always rejects all further testimony! Please read Brzezinski's own words in the Time magazine du jour, August 14, 2008, in his psy-ops article titled “Staring Down the Russians”, and ponder if you wish to believe a habitual self-confessed war-monger who trivially dismissed the destruction of Afghanistan for calculatingly “giving to the USSR its Vietnam War” simply as some “stirred-up Moslems”! When you kill one man it is murder. When you mastermind the destruction of entire peoples as mere pawns on the Grand Chessboard, it is only “foreign policy”. As Voltaire had aptly summed it: “all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.” Indeed, Brzezinski's full statement in the cited interview reveals the real pathology that is fueling the Georgia-Russia conflagration as another proxy war of the Anglo-American establishment upon the Russian (and Georgian) peoples:
Brzezinski: “What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?” (Le Nouvel Observateur, 1998)
And this is a mere extension of the perpetual so called “War on Terror” as explained elsewhere. Bush-Cheney and the present Anglo-American establishment whose primary foreign policy architects have been the neo-cons for the past decade, have already been proved to be monumental liars on “WMDs” in Iraq and the famous Downingstreet memos! And NATO is but the global military muscle of the Anglo-American foreign policy calculus today, as yesterday! To understand NATO's secret role in perpetuating deceit and terrorism for geostrategic ends – which in foreign policy parlance is called “strategy” – see Daniele Ganser's brilliant detective Ph.D. thesis turned published book “NATO's Secret Armies”. The afore-cited amnedisiac article in Spiegel Online, as also the myriad of neo-con penned opeds in New York Times and Washington rags, unequivocally show the new global lies being diligently manufactured – but only for those handful to perceive who know and comprehend their true history! That's almost zero percent of the Western public! And specifically, probably exactly zero percent American public. Thusly, how easily “United We Stand” to once again further dismember the “big bear” as an independent power-center en route to the mono Anglo-centric New World Order!
To further convolute the motivations of the Anglo-American establishment in initiating this geostrategic gambit, see this August 12th Alex Jones interview of chaplain Lindsey Williams. I am neutral on adjudicating what LW discloses, except that it appears to be remarkably consistent with some grotesque components of manifest reality that seek to calculatingly precipitate crises upon crises to seed “revolutionary times” up the wazoo!
The question that is really meaningful to this “chessgame” after Russia has completed her “pawn” move however (and She is still in the process of executing the multiple steps of that single move): will Russia initiate her own counter-moves along the SCO as outlined above (see Part I)? Would She go on the offensive by forging a military pact with Venezuela; rapidly transition the BRIC economic cooperation into a formal economic block; and install her military presence – nuclear military presence – in America's own backyard in South America?
Will Russia finally acquire the courage to publicly condemn America's “war on terror” as a fabrication? Will She boldly assert in her public pronouncements and at the UN that the “Islamofascism” mantra is a devilish contrivance – a fabricated enemy that was deliberately created by Zbigniew Brzezinski – deftly cultivated and harvested by the United States for “doctrinal motivation” du jour to enable its own “imperial mobilization” plans for “full spectrum dominance”? That, it is now equally devilishly being supplanted by the new “Russofascism” mantra to deliberately create a new Cold War as path to dismembering Russia, and we won't simply just turn over and plead “can I please have some more sir”?
Will Russia have the horse sense to engage the United States on its Achilles heals – officially and publicly charge the United States for the supreme war crime of premeditated invasion on contrived pretexts, occupation, and destruction of Iraq, in the world's courts, and in the UN Security Council where Russia comfortably occupies a permanent perch but has still not figured out how to leverage it in her own best interests? Will Russia have the courage to proclaim 911 as an “inside job” and therefore, assert that the invasion and destruction of Afghanistan has been no different than Hitler using “operation canned goods”? Will Russia exhibit her modern wherewithal by engaging the United States worldwide in an astutely manufactured public relations and legal campaign for culpability, retribution, and restitution along the lines of Nuremberg?
Some or all these steps on multiple simultaneous fronts with no expense spared would be the rational and logical next counter-moves to efficaciously bring-on the genuine “balance of terror” on the Grand Chessboard! The best defense is an offense! Russia under Putin must surely realize that! And so must Zbigniew Brzezinski! But can judomaster Putin play more imaginatively and skillfully than grandmaster Brzezinski and the entire Anglo-American elite to save Russia? Does he have the courage? That's all it takes – some courage!
