It's Time For The BRICS To Act To Counter US Destabilization Efforts

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Ben Tanosborn of,

It had to happen!  The blame game on that horrendous airline incident, Malaysian Flight MH17, has reached the expected loud monotone of pointing fault, lock, stock and barrel at Russia… and, more specifically, to that villain ex-KGB Slav, Vladimir Putin.
US media barrage of grotesque and obscene propaganda against America’s former foe and competitor, whether filtering down from the top or randomly finding placement in the emotions of a brainwashed citizenry, has found a leader of this warring marching band in Barack Obama.  The neocon ruling forces in the US State Department together with the bellicosarians running the Pentagon have found a perfect mouthpiece in the president of the US, an unlikely candidate just a few years ago, to do their bidding in Leo Strauss’ messianic vision to rule the World.
America’s few leadership voices of dissent and reasonableness against such ill-conceived propaganda, those of Libertarian Ron Paul and Professor Stephen Cohen (NY University) uniquely standing out, are drowned in a sea of US-poisoned waters where an armada of sanctions is unjustly landing on a nation, Russia, which dares stand for a right to secure its own historic geopolitical status… doing so without expressed or implied ambitions to extend its power and influence over others in the world… as the US does.
If blame is to be directed at any nation for the downing of this aircraft, the investigation needs to be pointed at what has transpired during this past year in Ukraine.  It was not Russia, or separatists in Eastern Ukraine, that created Ukraine’s political chaos.  It was the United States using its money and influence over a subservient European Union that brought down the democratically elected government in Kiev and stirred the ultimate separatist unrest.  So, if anyone is deserving of the ultimate, root-cause blame for this sordid loss of life, it should be the United States Machiavellian players now running Washington.  However, we might honor the memory of these innocent victims of flight MH17 by reaching a modus operandi consensus so that incidents such as this do not occur again.
But how is the world to counter the power of any nation, or block of nations, running amok to establish some form of supremacy over the rest?
We are just a year short of seven decades having a world body as a go-to place where the world problems can be voiced, discussed and hopefully resolved.  But as its ill-fated predecessor, the League of Nations, the United Nations was the creation of victorious nations after a world war… and those major victorious nations, singly or in commonality of interests with allies and partners, always appear to maintain their veto-of-interest over what might be right or fair, regardless of voted-on resolutions, or findings.
Although in some areas the UN has provided mankind a measure of solace and benefit, in key areas of peace, human rights and universal justice, it has not netted the minimum passing grade, thus indicating to the world that its charter needs to either be revised (rewritten); or that the world at large must direct their hopes and expectations in other directions where arbitration and eventual resolution of problems rule the day.
When one sees in the news UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon standing side by side with US Secretary of State John Kerry, in an alliance unlikely to stop Netanyahu’s blood-letting in Gaza, we correctly assume it to be what it really is: another diplomatic ploy.  Ultimately placing the blame on Hamas for not agreeing to the peace-plan-du-jour offered by Egypt, and consented to by the Arab League, will not resolve the endless conflict in which Palestine has been mired since the creation of modern Israel in 1947.  All players involved in finding a solution for a peaceful Palestine have failed repeatedly, possibly – some would say precisely – because of the US prejudicial involvement in the entire affair, and the definitive Zionist control over American foreign policy.
If the UN is incapable to change or influence the hegemonic geopolitical behavior of the United States... where else can the world look to find resolution to conflicts such as we have in Gaza and Ukraine today?
Enter the BRICS group of nations; escorted by other smaller nations that prefer dignified independence to protection from a bully they mistrust.  Can this group bring a friendlier, more humane atmosphere where peace and international brotherhood prevail?  It’s certainly worth a try: a way for 80 percent of the world’s population to find their rightful place; and for the presently ruling 20 percent to become more humanized.
Will the BRICS nations take up the challenge?

Putin knows that the US and Ukraine know exactly how it happened in every detail, but waiting for the moment the lies become so rediculous before he presents all the evidence perhaps in front of the UN security council and embarasses them.

Two stuffy old ladies coming out of Saint Patrick's Cathedral on NY's fifth avenue, and one says to other that she read that a new study proved that it was not the Jews that crucified Christ. The other one said: "I wonder who did it?" and answering her own question she said: "It must have been those damn Puertoricans"

So, add Puertoricans in the bunch.

Everybody? Must be everybody the way 'americans' understand it, that is, everybody at the exclusion of all the others.

Old american trick, used since the beginning, all human being have human rights save human beings who are not actually human beings etc

Currently, some part of the 'american' middle class is angered because they no longer receive their fair share of the loot from their government so it leads them to rant over and over again and even sink lower in propaganda.

For the others (that include 'americans' who receive their fair share of the loot), they know it is only the start.
To compare, 'americans' had already plans to land grab the place from the Indians in 1776. The last bit of land transfer was executed in 1898.

Yes, 'americans' have perfected their theft art in the meantime. Nevertheless, no matter how good they are, it is known that it will take more than a couple of years to play their magic in central asia.

I don't know if that article's opinions are true or not. It does present a viewpoint that I haven't considered very much before. IMO it's a good idea to look at a broad range of opinion. This gives you alternatives to consider if some facts do not seem to fit your existing view of a situation.

Personally, I haven't yet seen enough supporting evidence to change my opinion to that expressed in the article - that the BRICS are a globalist con job. I posted the link hoping others would post evidence (not just opinions) on this - pro & con.

zero hedge should put its money where its month is and move its bloggers and server location to beijing becuase of its hatred of western style econnomies. then, zero hedge should try to publish any blog posts related to the chinese fradulent economic data, and do so on a consistent continuing basis. 

zero hedge forgets that it can post and encourage the kind of dialougie it has on the internet through the result of western style, however flawed democracies which end up with western style economies. 

if the US government and legal system is built upon lies and conspiracy, then zero hedge should MUCH prefer the transparent chinese legal system and government bureacracy no??

False choice.  The choice isn't between the current U.S. governent of liars, and the Chineese government of liars.  There is another choice.  A better and more honest and just government right here, right now, by and for the people.  That's the real choice, whether we know it or not.  Because that's what we really want, in our heart of hearts.  Do you really want to settle for less?  Because if you settle for less, I guarantee, you'll get less.

The article he's responding to is not a plea for improving the US, it's a plea for foreign countries (half of them ruthlessly authoritarian) to militate against the US.

@ TeaParterade et al,

America is supposed to be a nice and beautiful country, and the folks there are supposed to be nice people running a normal life like this for instance, akin to the rest of the world.

However, the US GOVERNMENT and most if not all political institutions there are steadily infested and controlled in totality by the Tribe (CFR, FED et al), that's the Zlonlst Intl_Global ( Sayanim !? - pdf )

This nearly complete acquisition makes the America's face and hands terribly, extremely ugly and bloody!!!

The Tribe really demonizes America to become the Greatest Satan on earth.

Having said this, I do still sincerely hope the true American people can and will take back their country for the genuine peace and happiness of their own lives and the ROW!

Taking care of their own lives and running normal lives as the ROW and stop dominating and intervening into other nations' affairs!  As naive as the wish may sound to be, I still keep it deep in my heart.  Of course I can't expect the same from those dual-passport creatures.

for those who are new to DEAN HENDERSON, the American author of this awesome book: Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf:  Four Horsemen, Eight Families & Their Global Intelligence, Narcotics & Terror Network, purchase a copy and read it over... or read this fascinating kick-off chapter:


(1) The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families




(Part One of a Five-part series)

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.

According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.[1]

So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?

This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. This is rather ironic, since many of the bank’s stockholders reside in Europe.

One important repository for the wealth of the global oligarchy that owns these bank holding companies is US Trust Corporation - founded in 1853 and now owned by Bank of America. A recent US Trust Corporate Director and Honorary Trustee was Walter Rothschild. Other directors included Daniel Davison of JP Morgan Chase, Richard Tucker of Exxon Mobil, Daniel Roberts of Citigroup and Marshall Schwartz of Morgan Stanley. [2]

If the plan is to wait for a nation or some group of nations to fix the worlds woes, well we might as well give up.  What we (Americans) need to do is get our government out of the way, so if helping the Palestinians, or whomever, is important to you, you don't have to fear arrest for your support to those you think need it.  Individuals acting on what they think is right-- producers producing what they think they should produce-- it is two peas of the same pod.  Centralization is never the answer.

The "BRICS Bank" will not work like that.  Most people are looking at this wrong, misdirected in their thinking.  No gold, they will use dollars.  My article (coming soon) will show this, when I finish studying this new institution.  Few people will like the "BRICS Bank" more than what we have now:

"New Development Bank" (NDB) will be a smaller, warmed over World Bank.

"Contingency Reserve Agreement" (CRA) will be a smaller, warmed over IMF.

That's largely what I've been saying from the beginning. This isn't going to be any kind of new gold backed currency or anything like that. All this is is a way for them to get around SWIFT and fatca and all the rest of the bullshit we force on people for the 'privilege' of using the dollar in trade settlements. They want a way around the IMF, world bank, all that shit. It will just be another central bank, doing what all big banks do, but not be controlled by the US gov. That is it. They don't want a gold backed currency for the same reason we abandoned ours, it can't be conjured out of thin air.

No, BRICS won't be using the USD when an alternative is available. They may use the USD in the initial stage. But gist of the organization has been to de-Americanize, or de-Dollarize. It makes absolutely no sense to try to break away from US hegemony on one hand, and continue to use the USD on the other. That's an oxymoronic theme.

If they had openly and immediately declared to settle 50% of global trade in anything BUT USD, they might as well have ordered to be served a nuclear bomb for breakfast.

From what I understand, the goal is to replace the USD in a short amount of time and settle in a currency that cannot be manipulated by either London or Wall Street. BRICS know perfectly well that the USD and the paper the cabal is printing are weapons of mass destruction for their economies.

BRICS want to keep more of their wealth for themselves instead of feeding the parasites in the US and Europe.

Yes, but it will only be another fiat currency, or basket of several fiat currencies, which each individual central bank will still control. These countries will have learned the lessons of Greece/Portugal et al. and won't voluntarily give up the right to print their own individual currencies. Not saying this won't make a viable alternative for trade settlement, and after what the US gov does to our money, who can blame them. However, this will just be another fiat currency I a world that is already flooded with them.

You are either naive or stupid to think you know what is going on right now., we can

Ha I'm sure there were plenty here too, I think I just happened to be overseas when the craze started. It's easy to convince people that this imminent re-valuation of the currency is going to happen when you are spendin money in other ME currencies that are very high compared to the dollar. After interacting with some Iraqi military people, it becomes abundantly clear that the most stable that country or currency was or will be in the foreseeable future was before the US involvement.

I know it is a controlled situation but at least he has sort of a human affect, he laughs, looks sceptical and sometimes a bit irritated. He also took on questions. Even if they were known in advance they required more than a canned answer.

What I have heard is 'hey, we are trying to get along, it has not been helpful that NATO has built up to our doorstep...which they promised they would not. I have yet to hear him hint at the so called 'wish to rebuild the Soviet empire. He seems to like Russia.

Russia and China's business is, taking care of business, while Washington is insanely obsessed with “their” world government and “their” world banking ponzi scheme while bankrupting America into complete world central bankster police state control.


The treasonous globalist in Washington think they are in world control, they are not. Russia, China, Brazil, India and South Africa BRICS nations will soon be joined by a landslide of other countries that want Freedom and Independence from criminal Washington central bankster domination.


The absurdity of Washington's sanctions against Russia is hilarious,

The US can only offer it's banking services in a world awash in US debt. It permeates all central banks and destabilizes the world's monetary system as it grows the money supply with a strange bunch of monetary instruments to fill the never ending need for more dollars.

The curve is now straight up and the end is nearing. The US no longer controls it's own destiny. We are in the hands of those who either accept or reject our currency.

the end is nearing.

I hate to be johnny one note, but just before 'the end' enters on stage, it's 'peak oil' that gives 'the end' its cue.

What other conclusion is possible from the US's belligerence today toward 4 out of the 6 countries with the greatest reserves of crude oil.

And 2 countries suitable for pipelines which avoid Russia? And their interest in South Sudan which is upset by rebellion now?

And the way it steamed into the South China Sea when China declared its intentions there?

After Hubbert's prediction materialized in 1973, and the neocons got control of the White House in 1981, the focus of the US has been to confiscate and commandeer as much of the oil outside their control as they could.

(Whether the US actually concocted the 'crash of 07 -08' is another story.  I don't think it slowed their sequestration efforts at all.)

Only peak oil explains the unacceptable behavior of America since the shah fell and Reagan came to office.

"the focus of the US has been to confiscate and commandeer as much of the oil outside their control as they could".

No, the US did the bidding of Saudi Arabia as per the petro dollar deal. Can you tell me when or where the US "confiscated" oil? Of course you can't. That didn't happen. The US spent the Soviet Union into oblivion but unfortunately we did the same thing to ourselves. Given the reserve currency status and our stature around the world, we were able to extend our credit so to speak for a time. Peak oil has nothing to do with our actions in the middle east since the 1970's. We became the Saudi's personal army. That deal appears to be ending.

Thu, 07/24/2014 - 14:46 | 4999646 bid the soldier...
bid the soldiers shoot's picture

You're right.  Instead of saying 'confiscate' I should have said "control the production", 'confiscation' and 'commandeering' occur after the shit hits the fan and nobody except Saddam and Gaddafi think that's happened yet. (Some of us think they're getting a whiff of that now.)

the US did the bidding of Saudi Arabia as per the petro dollar deal. 

A classic example of thinking the tail wags the dog.

Peak oil is the point in time when the maximum rate of petroleum extraction is reached, after which the rate of production is expected to enter terminal decline.[1] Peak oil theory is based on the observed rise, peak, (sometimes rapid) fall, and depletion of aggregateproduction rate in oil fields over time. Mostly due to the development of new production techniques and the exploitation of unconventional supplies, Hubbert's original predictions for world production proved premature.[2] Peak oil is often confused with oil depletion; peak oil is the point of maximum production, while depletion refers to a period of falling reserves and supply.

So maximum production is the name of the game.  Saddam and Gaddafi would still be around if they had listened to the US and drilled wells as fast as the US wanted.  But they thought that the oil under their land was theirs to produce and not the West's.

Peak oil has nothing to do with our actions in the middle east since the 1970's. 

Disagree.  There was no peak oil at all until Hubbert's prediction in 1956 was realized in 1973, which, coincidentally, was the year of the first 'oil shock' when the demand for oil was reduced by an increase in the price of crude.  

We are not the Saudi's personal army; we are the personal army of the Saudi reserve of crude oil.  There's a difference.

Again, I should have said "to be confiscated" and "to be commandeered".  

Until then, the drillers, Halliburton, Schlumberger, et al   are there operating the wells at maximum production, probably along with the US military.

Finally, when 'oil depletion' finally arrives  --  no it won't be here for years.  But the Pentagon will be ready for it when it comes   --  and our Humpty Dumpty economy is irreparable, all currency will be worthless and all sovereign debt is rescinded.

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 23:41 | 4996636 MASTER OF UNIVERSE

BRICS is a mathematically logical outgrowth of American hegemony if

they plan on survival. Put yourself in the shoes of BRICS and ask yourself if the Americans should control the rigged markets? Do Americans actually think we trust them or their petro-dollars anymore? Americans are like a rabid dog foaming at the mouth and psychotically looking around for victims to slaughter on a monthly basis.

wtf do you think prompted BRICS in the first place?

American hegemony makes equitable business and trust into an oxymoron

on a global scale. Business is not about ripping someones face off

and it is most certainly not about ripping someone's eyeballs out.

Business is not about making sure that bears eat and bulls eat and pigs get slaughtered either. Business is about fairness and equity, and fair trade. American business decided that business was about other priorities considered more paramount than fair trade itself. Without fair trade and equitable trade you do not have fuel to run the engines of an economy. An economy without fire in the stove is useless. The ethos of Capitalism was long lost to the ethos of Corporatism and the fascism

we see now. Look at the fascist American CIA in Ukraine attempting

to force the Corporatist ethos of American exceptionalism/fascism off

onto the good people of Ukraine. The White House and the Central Intelligence Agency are running a fascist regime and rational decision makers in other countries are saying let's partner to save ourselves from this so-called American Exceptionalism that is frightening in all manner to any rational human being. Face facts please, American hegemony is no way to conduct business throughout the global village.

Look at the threats that American business partners foist off onto unwilling business partners in countries other than the USA. The world is waking up to the fact that Americans are just too volitile to conduct

business with and that is what formed BRICS.

AS far as the “ruling 20 percent to become more human” Forget it!


Frederick Nietzsche is the Existentialist philosopher that the money elite follow and are brainwashed to believe at the prestigious American colleges. Nietzsche wrote a treatise called “Beyond Good and Evil” that characterizes the bankster elite psychopathic and irrational thinking; they have no moral foundation like regular humans.


Now, what do you God believing, religious people with morals think about what “Beyond Good and Evil means”? Basically, it means there is no such thing as God, morals or humanitarian restraint in business. There are only winners and losers and you must win at all cost. The bald face lie, secrecy, greed, fraud and conspiring: is good.


Killing millions of people means nothing to the Existentialist, there is no guilt or pity; they have done nothing wrong.


Psychopath murder is not evil for them if they are making money from the murder and do not get caught; that is good.


Most intelligent people realize that the 9/11/01 terrorist attack was an “inside job” that orchestrated us into national debt and “terrorist wars” over the last 13 years.


The Existentialist neo-con terrorist in control of Washington today are the same criminal banksters that orchestrated the 9/11 attacks, destroyed our capitalist economy, destroyed our democracy with a Fascist totalitarian police state, attack our American Sovereignty and Independence with UN Agenda 21st. Century attacks, North American Union attacks and illegal immigration attacks,

MH17 Chameleon: Operation Rapid Trident II


The announcement of U.S. BREEZE and RAPID TRIDENT II military maneuvers came on May 21, 2014 by Vice President Joe Biden’s office. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is a newly-named director of the Ukrainian natural gas and oil company Burisma Holdings, Ltd., owned by Ihor Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian-Israeli mafia oligarch, who is known as the «Chameleon». Kolomoisky has raised his own mercenary army, complete with the BUK missiles allegedly used in the shootdown of MH-17. Kolomoisky, the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk oblast in eastern Ukraine, has threatened terrorist attacks against Russian-speaking officials in eastern Ukraine, including assassinations.

Thanks for that link. Good background information

Kolomoisky chooses to «command» his army from the safety of Switzerland, far from the front lines and relatively safe from arrest if his ties to terrorist attacks are ever pursued by legitimate governmental authorities. Kolomoisky has a powerful «insurance policy» against any legal recriminations. He counts on the powerful Israel Lobby in the United States to support his cause.  Kolomoisky has publicly spoken of Ukraine as the «second homeland» of the Jewish people. And with «The Lobby» in his corner, Kolomoisky has indirect access to the highest levels of power within the Department of Defense, NATO, and the U.S. Intelligence Community.

Also, I had not heard about this before:

The 10-day NATO exercise code named «BREEZE 2014» has ended in Black Sea. The exercise, which included the use of electronic warfare and electronic intelligence aircraft such as the Boeing EA-18G Growler and the Boeing E3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS), coincided with the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine, some 40 miles from the Russian border. NATO ships and aircraft had the Donetsk and Luhansk regions under total radar and electronic surveillance.

Plus some additional information about MH-17.

    A Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, the same type that was used by MH-17 and the still-missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370 (MH370 to 911 – Electronic Warfare), which disappeared on March 8 while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, is stored in a hangar at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv. The Boeing 777 in Israel, with serial number 28416,  Malaysia registration tail numb 9M-MRI, was sold to GA Telesis, LLC of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on October 21, 2013. The Boeing 777 was re-registered with the United States tail number N105GT and first stored at Tarbes Lourdes Pyrenees airport and on November 4, 2013, was transferred to Tel Aviv, where it was last spotted in a hangar.

This plane never would have been shot down if it wasn`t for the US destablizing the Ukraine, therefore the ethnic Russians who shot it down are not to blame in the slightest.

Also, Hitler never would have liquidated 6 million jews if the allies who were victorious in WWI hadn`t forced Germany to pay reparations, hence Hitler was not to blame for any of those deaths either.

I`m getting the hang of being a Zero Hedge member.

They are not to blame because at worst they were shooting at a Ukranian fighter. If they shot it down at all. Sill no rocket trail evidence that has appeared anywhere. If it didn't come from the ground where did it come from?

BRICS will become PRICS too when they get in control. It's human nature. Power corrupts - remember? Plus, the two biggest and most powerful members (Russia & China) are totalitarian states. Doesn't bode well for human rights, freedoms, etc.


Sure - these same things are becoming a joke in the West too - but who wants the totalitarians back in the ascendancy???

Public employee:

For Public Official in Brazil must provide proof procedure.

There are contests that up to 45,000 people pay for 100 vacancies.

Maybe more, depends on the State or Union

Only the best pass.

If you pass the Contest, you are a guy who speaks for the State, the State has responsibilities.

If you shit or talk shit without his superior, you're screwed.

The pay is good, very good, can believe.

There is another option of a public official but are indicated by politicians.

These should not be taken seriously.

In Brazil it is so, I believe that Russia and China also do not know how it is in India and South Africa

Throughout the U.S. with "democracy", no citizen votes in as President in Brazil where voting is straightforward.

You may be in Ukraine but in an election, you vote in Nevis or Aetius to President Dilma.

No need to vote for a guy of your state that will vote on the other, the thing is simple.

Oh, another thing: here is the vote on his toe, scanned my hands.

No need to document and nobody will vote in my place.

Unless you cut off my fingers.

Where is the democratic vote?

Where is the "Demo" (DemonioKracia)?

In the U.S. or Brazil?

I'm not sure if I understand your logic. There's no democracy in the US and I think you're saying there's no democracy in Brazil? Democracy doesn't exist. The elites anywhere do not allow to be ruled by the prols. There's the illusion of democracy but that's all there is! Way too many variables in a sytem where any majority of people could screw up the place so badly for the rest. Far better to have a small group of elites rule the land and screw everyone and screw up the place.

America aided Ukrainian rebels for power overturn.

America landed secret snipers near Maidan & killed ppl on both sides.

America looted 33 tons of gold from Ukraine.

This 33 tons of gold was sold to Iraq , took the money but kept gold in NewYork.

ISIS is a creation of American ally Saudi Arabia similar to Al-Queda another creation of America.

ISIS created mayhem in Iraq.

Now America keeps the Gold as well as the billions of $.

America creates and aids terrorists for profits as mentioned above.

America is disease for the whole world like AIDS.

America is a threat to whole world especially to developing countries.

Can this group bring a friendlier, more humane atmosphere where peace and international brotherhood prevail?

Excellent words! I think this is what we, mankind, should all strive for. It is simply insane to allow the possibility of one big and arrogant nation beign able, in pursuit of its own political and economic interests, to drive the world to a point where a nuclear war becomes an option. This is what international organizations like UN are meant for - to settle in an independent and unbiased way any such disputes between nations through a thourough and inclusive international dialogue on the basis of the international law. And when we find ourselves in a situation where the UN practically serve the interests of that big nation this can not be tolerated! Anyone who has at least half brain can not deny that! We are in for a change and this is a change for the better! The only thing that scares me is that that big nation may take offence and push the button.

You're welcome to try to control our mentally insane departments of defense and military industrial complex. The American public is the last ones to be heard by this megalomaniacal monstrosity. It is locked in like a giant undead spider with webs everywhere, feeding, feeding, feeding. Good luck!

A chessboard drenched in blood
By Pepe Escobar

The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake. But it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. By now, Russian intel may have already mastered the key facts. Washington's predictable modus operandi was to shoot from the hip, igniting and in theory winning the spin war, and doubling down by releasing the proverbial army of "top officials" brimming with social media evidence. Moscow will take time to build a meticulous case, and only then lay it out in detail.

The Big Picture spells out the Empire of Chaos elites as extremely uneasy. Take Dr Zbigniew "The Grand Chessboard" Brzezinski, who as a former foreign policy mentor has the ears of the increasingly dejected White House paperboy. Dr Zbig was on CNN this Sunday challenging Europe's leaders to "stand up to Putin". He wonders if "Europe wants to become a satellite" and worries about "a moment of decisive significance for the future of the system - of the world system".

And it's all Putin's fault, of course: "We're not starting the Cold War. He [Putin] has started it. But he has gotten himself into a horrendous jam. I strongly suspect that a lot of people in Russia, even not far away from him who are worried that Russia's status in the world is dramatically being undermined, that Russia's economically beginning to fail, that Russia's threatened by the prospect of becoming a satellite to China, that Russia's becoming self-isolated and discredited."

Obviously Dr Zbig is blissfully unaware of the finer points of the Russia-China strategic partnership, as well as their concerted voice inside the BRICS, the G-20 and myriad other mechanisms. His trademark Russophobia in the end always gets the better of him. And to think that in his latest book, Strategic Vision (2012), Dr Zbig was in favor of an enlarged "West" annexing Turkey and Russia, with the Empire of Chaos posing as "promoter" and "guarantor" of broader unity in the West, and a "balancer" and "conciliator" between the major powers in the East. A quick look at the record since 2012 - Libya, Syria, Ukraine, encirclement of China - reveals the Empire of Chaos only as fomenter of, what else, chaos.
