Brzezinski’s greatest fear now fulfilled
Apr 29, 2017
The so-called “Brzezinski Doctrine,” set forth in his 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard, is the root of the West’s conflict with Russia and China. I wrote about it here:
and here, where Brzezinski admits that the USA has failed to contain Russia and China:
In past centuries, whoever controlled the high seas controlled the world, not only through warships, but mostly because of the economic benefits of world trade. But with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 came a new push to build the infrastructure necessary to ship good cheaply BY LAND from Europe to China. Thus, whoever controls that LAND suddenly gains a geostrategic advantage, not by warships, but by peaceful trade agreements.
So a new “Silk Route” is developing. Centuries ago the Silk Route was an overland trade route from the Mideast to China. Today it is about roads, pipelines, and railroads. In the long-term, it threatens to replace ships as the primary means of transporting traded goods throughout Eurasia.
It was this “threat” that Brzezinski sought to avert by trying to contain Russia and China and thereby prevent them from developing this infrastructure. More recently, as the article above says, Brzezinski admitted that the US had failed to stop Russia’s development. He also said that the only recourse that the US had left was to make an alliance with either Russia or China and then use that alliance against the odd man out.
Well, that is not working so well either, because both Russia and China know the US motive, and the US has already destroyed whatever trust there may have been in the past 20 years. At the beginning of the 21st century, Russia’s Putin tried very hard to be America’s friend, but he was rebuffed, insulted, and “contained,” according to the Brzezinski Doctrine. The US government finally destabilized Syria and backed a political coup in Ukraine as a last-ditch attempt to implement the Brzezinski Doctrine.
So Putin made friends with China. It is now too late for the US to try to break apart that Russia-China alliance. The infuriated US government, which claims to be doing all this warmongering for the benefit of the American people and to maintain the American Empire (Babylon, really), continued to treat Russia as an enemy. If anyone in government has any Russian contacts, he is whipped by the government-controlled media. The American people need to know that Russia could have been our friend, had it not been for the US government’s adherence to the Brzezinski Doctrine and to its ambition to maintain economic control of the world.
Here is an article about the latest success of the modern Silk Route. Merchants can now ship goods by train from London to China.
The first freight train to link China directly to the UK arrived in the eastern Chinese city of Yiwu Saturday after covering over 12,000-kilometres (7,500 miles), making it the second-longest route in the world.
The journey is the latest effort in China's drive to strengthen trade links with western Europe along a modern-day "Silk Road" route.
The world's top trading nation launched the "One Belt, One Road" strategy in 2013, and has since poured millions into constructing vast infrastructure links.
