The US Is Executing A Global War Plan

Authored by Finian Cunningham via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Washington is moving inevitably on a global war plan. That’s the grim conclusion one has to draw from three unfolding war scenarios.

Ultimately, it’s about American imperialism trying to assert hegemony over the international order for the benefit of US capitalism. Russia and China are prime targets for this global assault.

The three unfolding war scenarios are seen in Syria, North Korea and Ukraine.

These are not disparate, disassociated conflicts. They are inter-related expressions of the American war plans. War plans which involve the moving of strategic military power into position.

Last week’s massacre of over 100 Syrian government forces by American warplanes near Deir ez-Zor was an audacious overt assault by the US on the Syrian state. The US, along with other NATO allies, have been up to now waging a seven-year proxy war for regime change against Russia’s ally, President Assad. The massacre last week was certainly not the first time that US forces, illegally present in Syria, have attacked the Syrian army. But it seems clearer than ever now that American forces are operating on the overt agenda for regime change. US troops are transparently acting like an occupation army, challenging Russia and its legally mandated support for the Syrian state.

Heightening international concerns are multiple reports that Russian military contractors were among the casualties in the US-led air strike near Deir ez-Zor last week.

Regarding North Korea, Washington is brazenly sabotaging diplomatic efforts underway between the respective Korean leaderships in Pyongyang and Seoul. While this inter-Korean dialogue has been picking up positive momentum, the US has all the while been positioning nuclear-capable B-52 and B-2 bombers in the region, along with at least three aircraft carriers. The B-2s are also reportedly armed with 14-tonne bunker-buster bombs – the largest non-nuclear warhead in the American arsenal, designed to destroy North Korean underground missile silos and “decapitate” the Pyongyang leadership of Kim Jong-un.

American vice-president Mike Pence, while attending the Winter Olympics in South Korea, opening last week, delivered a blunt war message. He said that the recent detente between North Korea and US ally South Korea will come to an end as “soon as the Olympic flame is extinguished” – when the games close later this month. This US policy of belligerence completely upends Russia and China’s efforts to facilitate inter-Korean peace diplomacy.

Meanwhile, the situation in Eastern Ukraine looks decidedly grim for an imminent US-led invasion of the breakaway Donbas region. Pentagon military inspectors have in the past week reportedly arrived along the Contact Zone that separates the US-backed Kiev regime forces and the pro-Russian separatists of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. Donetsk’s military commander Eduard Basurin warned that the arrival of Pentagon and other NATO military advisors from Britain and Canada indicate that US-armed Kiev forces are readying for a renewed assault on the Donbas ethnic Russian population.

Even the normally complacent observers of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), charged with monitoring a nominal ceasefire along the Contact Zone, have lately begun reporting serious advancement of heavy weapons by the Kiev forces – in violation of the 2015 Minsk Peace Accord.

If the US-led Kiev forces proceed with the anticipated offensive next month in Donbas there are real fears for extreme civilian casualties. Such “ethnic cleansing” of Russian people by Kiev regime forces that openly espouse Neo-Nazi ideology would mostly likely precipitate a large-scale intervention by Moscow as a matter of humanitarian defense. Perhaps that is what the US planners are wagering on, which can then be portrayed by the dutiful Western news media as “another Russian aggression”.

US-based political analyst Randy Martin says: “It is undeniable that Washington is on a war footing in three global scenarios. Preparation for war is in fact war.”

He added:

“You have to also consider the latest Nuclear Posture Review published by the Pentagon earlier this month. The Pentagon is openly declaring that it views Russia and China as targets, and that it is willing to use nuclear force to contest conventional wars and what the Pentagon deems to be asymmetric aggression.

Martin says that it is not clear at this stage what Washington wants exactly.

“It is of course all about seeking global domination which is long-consistent with American imperialism as expressed for example in the Wolfowitz Doctrine following the end of the Cold War,” says the analyst.

But what does Washington want specifically from Russia and China is the question. It is evidently using the threat of war and aggression as a lever.

But it is not clear what would placate Washington.

Perhaps regime change in Russia where President Putin is ousted by a deferential pro-Western figure.

Perhaps Russia and China giving up their plans of Eurasian economic integration and abandoning their plans to drop the American dollar in trade relations.

One thing, however, seems abundantly clear. The US is embarking on a global war plan, as can be discerned from the grave developments unfolding in Syria, the Korean Peninsula and Ukraine. Each scenario can be understood as a pressure point on Moscow or China to in some way acquiesce to American ambitions for global dominance.

To be sure, Washington is being reckless and criminal in its conduct, violating the UN Charter and countless other international laws. It is brazenly acting like a rogue regime without the slightest hint of shame.

Still, Russia and China are hardly likely to capitulate. Simply because the US ambition of unipolar hegemony is impossible to achieve. The post-Second World Order, which Washington was able to dominate for nearly seven decades, is becoming obsolete as the international order naturally transforms into a multipolar configuration.

When Washington accuses Moscow and Beijing of “trying to alter the international order to their advantage” what the American rulers are tacitly admitting is their anxiety that the days of US hegemony are on the wane. Russia and China are not doing anything illegitimate. It is simply a fact of historical evolution.

So, ultimately, Washington’s war plans are futile in what they are trying to achieve by criminal coercion. Those plans cannot reverse history. But, demonically, those plans could obliterate the future of the planet.

The world is again on a precipice as it was before on the eve of the First and Second World Wars. Capitalism, imperialism and fascism are again center stage.

As analyst Randy Martin puts it:

“The American rulers are coming out of the closet to show their true naked nature of wanting to wage war on the world. Their supremacist, militarist ideology is, incontrovertibly, fascism in action.”

The Military Industrial Complex (M.I.C.) shall not be challenged!

Why else all the pointless "wars" in the Middle East, Africa, and countless overseas bases?

Notice how they are desperate to demonize Russia, and Trump?

Ah yes, the Imperial City is hungry to waste more lives!

Never-mind the money, make the serfs believe!

"FED good, M.I.C. good, Russia bad!"

"China? Harmless producers!"

Are you deluded yet?

It was not a single Crimean war, you can  easily check that. There were many wars between Russia and Turkey. Russia defeated Turkey in most of these wars and  eventually took over Crimea for good until Kruschev by decret ceded that territory to Ukraine. This was later on considered illigal since most of the population wanted to remain with Russia which Putin later on made it possible by the reunification.

Why would Russia invade Turkey when Putin already has them in his pocket? And besides, in terms of 'invading' Europe, the Russians sure as hell would not do it through Turkey - they are more than capable of rolling over at least half, or more, of Europe by fighting west, not a roundabout way through Turkey.

If this breaks out, the first locations you are going to see get 'hit' will be eastern Poland and southern Romania, to take out the Aegis Ashore batteries. Russian forces would also advance rapidly through Belarus and decapitate Kiev. From there it would be on to Berlin, Germany and probably concurrently, the capture of the Baltic's. The Czech Republic, Moldavia, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary have already announced they will NOT try to take on a Russian counter strike against Western Europe, i.e. they are choosing to be neutral, while securing all of the Ukraine, then all of the territory south to Bulgaria would cement the previous buffer zone that the old Soviet Union maintained. Expect the same thing again, if Russia is provoked to war.

Securing the southern flank is perhaps the easiest of all tasks. There is only a very narrow pass through the southern caucuses, and that is strategically held by the Azerbaijanis, a Shiite nation allied with Iran, Plus Armenia, a mixed culture, but also one that has a sizeable Shirt Muslim population. Both of those countries would be the main bulwarks against American troops trying to drive to Baku through land invasions, plus Iran.

This article has already been written, over 20 years ago, by Zbigniew Brzezinski.  It's called "The Grand Chessboard."  It's a darn shame the political circus in Washington has eliminated everyone who could have thought up a new strategy in all that time, as the global situation has changed so much that even Brzezinski himself, just before he died (or went back into his coffin for a nap, whatever) repudiated his own strategy.

But we're still stuck with Brzezinski's obsolete strategy, and the feckless order-takers in charge are going to pursue it, outdated or not.

For those who haven't bother to read it, the "Grand Chessboard" strategy is a fantasy of global Empire.  The thesis is that there can be only two outcomes for the US; total global domination or total destruction.  For the US to gain global control, the US must dominate Eurasia.  The US can't just invade and take over, due to issues of population, finance, military capability, and political will.  Brzezinski admits the US people don't want global Empire, but of course he knows better.

This has been the US global strategy for decades, now coming to a head.  To dominate Eurasia, the US must weaken and break up its rivals; Russia, China, and the E.U.  The strategy calls for stirring up war and chaos in the nations surrounding those rivals, particularly those nations with large deposits of energy resources.

Look at an atlas.  Look where the US has been involved in destroying civil society and open invasion.  Every nation has been on top of energy deposits, or on the trade routes those deposits have to travel to get to market.  Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Southern Sudan, Somalia, the Kurdish areas, Ukraine.

Additionally, North Korea is a lever against both Russia and China, though mostly China.  There have been reports of US efforts to stir up the Uighurs in Xinjiang Province in China.

It's a crazy strategy; suitable for a Galician like Brzezinski.  Galicia is an historically Polish area now in the nation of Ukraine.  Galicians fought on the side of the Nazi Germans and were so bloodthirsty they disgusted even the SS with their hatred of Ukrainians, Jews, and particularly Russians.  Brzezinski's strategy would destroy Russia even at the cost of the rest of the world, and would consider that a victory.

Too bad the US has never bothered to come up with a better plan.  As Brzezinski stated shortly before his death, things have changed to the point his strategy could not succeed.  Yet on we plod.  It would be far better for the US to bring every single soldier and all military equipment back within the borders of the US and US territorial waters, and slash a full Zero off the War Machine Budget.  That's the only way to improve America's economy and global standing.  But it's been decided to let the Oligarchs escalate the looting of America and the maintenance of a huge global army answering only to the Oligarchs, not in the interest of the US as a whole.

This won't end well.

No, no, no.


The planet was temporarily spared from an impending starvation/famine event back in the early 60's by Norman Borlaug, the "Father of the Green Revolution". Based in part on Strampelli's genetics research, and with help from Ford Foundation and Monsanto, Borlaug devised a system to massively boost food production at the expense of destroying the topsoil. It was intended as a emergency, stopgap measure - a way to buy time that could be used to A) figure out a way to sustainably boost food production, or B) reduce human population to a sustainable level, or C) devise a plan to colonize other worlds. It was thought the new farming methods would buy us another 50 years, m/l. Borlaug was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his work. Plan A was always considered least likely to succeed, Plan B requires unilateral buy-in from the masses (lol), and Plan C requires that we solve two additional problems: i) faster-than-light propulsion systems, and/or ii) a practical inertial cancellation field (to stop dust from punching through a lightspeed vehicle)


The US is preparing for what must happen when Plans A, B, and C above, fail. That's all this is so calm down and have a cheeseburger.

I don't know enough about ag policy to comment on that, and agree that USDA's factory farming approach is not sustainable, but I can tell you that there is absolutely no problem with long-term food production.

Watch people like Joel Salatin and Gabe Brown on Youtube. Ecofarming is the profitable and innovative part of farming now, and their yields are equalling the USDA's approach in good years and are better in bad.

The many 'greening the desert' and Green Belt etc show how that ecosystem approach is sweeping the world and moving people out of poverty and starvation everywhere. The farmers killing themselves in despair around the world aren't using the new ideas.

Complete and unbelievable BS.

Except for removing all dual citizens from government, that I agree with. It isn't just Israelis we need to worry about, the CIA imported Nazis and Communists in previous generations, and are using Muslims now for the same reasons.

Foreign born people cannot be allowed in government, given the MIC-CIA's ability to skip normal immigration vetting.

The "rapture" is part of the dispensational zionist deception rolled out in the 1800s.  The "evangelicals" think they can support the antichrists, set up a false Israel idol, call those who deny Christ God's chosen, help them turn the world into a nightmare, and then get beamed out to avoid reaping what they sow.  The only rapture is when Jesus returns as the Judge, and it's all over.

Dispensational theology thanks to John Darby and the Scofeild Bible.  Dispensationalism is pure *new* “theology”, and pure bunk.  The historic Christian church never heard of such garbage. Covenant theologians have the correct view ( it’s what the early Church thought) which means there is only one group of people [ who love the one true god ] since Adam to the end of world. Always the remenant “There is no more Greek or Jew”, no distinction anymore.  

Only believers and unbelievers. Isreal today should not exist.  They were destroyed in 70 AD BY GOD for killing the messiah and the old covenant was destroyed forever, the curtain torn in two, “ it is finished”.  Either your in Christ or not.  No special plan for Jews.  There is not rapture, battle of Armageddon, one person anti Christ, abomination of desolation, all this was about 70 AD and it was the “end of days” for the Jews......get out of dispensationalist theology, it is WRONG
