"THE GRAND CHESSBOARD - American Primacy And Itís
Geostrategic Imperatives," Zbigniew Brzezinski, Basic Books, 1997.
These are the very first words in the book: "Ever since
the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia
has been the center of world power." - p. xiii. Eurasia
is all of the territory east of Germany
stretching all the way through Russia
and China to
the Pacific Ocean. It includes the Middle
East and most of the Indian subcontinent. The key to controlling Eurasia,
says Brzezinski, is controlling the Central
And the key to controlling the Central Asian republics is Uzbekistan.
Thus, it comes as no surprise that Uzbekistan
was forcefully mentioned by President George W. Bush in his address to a joint
session of Congress, just days after the attacks of September 11, as the very
first place that the U.S.
military would be deployed.
As FTW has documented in previous stories, major deployments
of U.S. and
British forces had taken place before the attacks. And the U.S. Army and the
CIA had been active in Uzbekistan
for several years. There is now evidence that what the world is witnessing is a
cold and calculated war plan - at least four years in the making - and that,
from reading Brzezinskiís own words about Pearl Harbor,
the World Trade
Center attacks were just the
trigger needed to set the final conquest in motion.
FTW, November 7, 2001, 1200 PST (Revised Jan. 21,2001) -
Thereís a quote often attributed to Allen Dulles after it was noted that the
final 1964 report of the Warren Commission on the assassination of JFK
contained dramatic inconsistencies. Those inconsistencies, in effect, disproved
the Commissionís own final conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone on November 22, 1963. Dulles, a career
spy, Wall Street lawyer, the CIA director whom JFK had fired after the 1961 Bay
of Pigs fiasco - and the Warren Commission member who took charge
of the investigation and final report - is reported to have said, "The
American people donít read."
Some Americans do read. So do Europeans and Asians and
Africans and Latin Americans.
World events since the attacks of September 11, 2001 have not only been predicted, but
also planned, orchestrated and - as their architects would like to believe -
controlled. The current Central Asian war is not a response to terrorism, nor
is it a reaction to Islamic fundamentalism. It is in fact, in the words of one
of the most powerful men on the planet, the beginning of a final conflict
before total world domination by the United
States leads to the dissolution of all
national governments. This, says Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member and
former Carter National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, will lead to
nation states being incorporated into a new world order, controlled solely by
economic interests as dictated by banks, corporations and ruling elites
concerned with the maintenance (by manipulation and war) of their power. As a
means of intimidation for the unenlightened reader who happens upon this
frightening plan - the plan of the CFR - Brzezinski offers the alternative of a
world in chaos unless the U.S.
controls the planet by whatever means are necessary and likely to succeed.
This position is corroborated by Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl, Ph.D.
a former German defense ministry official and advisor to former NATO Secretary
General Manfred Werner. On November 6, he told FTW, "The interests behind
the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral Commission - founded
by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller - and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared
for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next
five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against
Brzezinskiís own words - laid against the current official
line that the United States
is waging a war to end terrorism - are self-incriminating. In an ongoing series
of articles, FTW has consistently established that the U.S.
government had foreknowledge of the World
attacks and chose not to stop them because it needed to secure public approval
for a war that is now in progress. It is a war, as described by Vice President
Dick Cheney, "that may not end in our lifetimes." What that means is
that it will not end until all armed groups, anywhere in the world, which
possess the political, economic or military ability to resist the imposition of
this dictatorship, have been destroyed.
These are the "terrorists" the U.S.
now fights in Afghanistan
and plans to soon fight all over the globe.
Before exposing Brzezinski (and those he represents) with his
own words, or hearing more from Dr. Koeppl, it is worthwhile to take a look at
According to his resume Brzezinski, holding a 1953 Ph.D. from
Harvard, lists the following achievements:
Counselor, Center for Strategic and International Studies
Professor of American Foreign Policy, Johns
National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter (1977-81)
Trustee and founder of the Trilateral Commission
International advisor of several major US/Global corporations
Associate of Henry Kissinger
Under Ronald Reagan - member of NSC-Defense Department
Commission on Integrated Long-Term Strategy
Under Ronald Reagan - member of the Presidentís Foreign
Intelligence Advisory Board
Past member, Board of Directors, The Council on Foreign
1988 - Co-chairman of the Bush National Security Advisory Task
Brzezinski is also a past attendee and presenter at several
conferences of the Bilderberger group - a non-partisan affiliation of the
wealthiest and most powerful families and corporations on the planet.
The Grand Chessboard
Brzezinski sets the tone for his strategy by describing Russia
and China as
the two most important countries - almost but not quite superpowers - whose
interests that might threaten the U.S.
in Central Asia. Of the two, Brzezinski considers Russia
to be the more serious threat. Both nations border Central Asia.
In a lesser context he describes the Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Iran and Kazakhstan
as essential "lesser" nations that must be managed by the U.S. as
buffers or counterweights to Russian and Chinese moves to control the oil, gas
and minerals of the Central Asian Republics (Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan,
Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan).
He also notes, quite clearly (p. 53) that any nation that
might become predominant in Central Asia would directly
threaten the current U.S.
control of oil resources in the Persian Gulf. In reading
the book it becomes clear why the U.S. had a direct motive for the looting of
some $300 billion in Russian assets during the 1990s, destabilizing Russiaís
currency (1998) and ensuring that a weakened Russia would have to look
westward to Europe for economic and political survival, rather than
southward to Central Asia. A dependent Russia
would lack the military, economic and political clout to exert influence in the
region and this weakening of Russia
would explain why Russian President Vladimir Putin has been such a willing ally
of U.S. efforts
to date. (See FTW Vol. IV, No. 1 - March
An examination of selected quotes from "The Grand
Chessboard," in the context of current events reveals the darker agenda
behind military operations that were planned long before September 11th, 2001.
"The attitude of the American public toward the external
projection of American power has been much more ambivalent. The public
engagement in World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor. (pp 24-5)
It is also a fact that America
is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of Americaís
power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before
has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of
power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a
sudden threat or challenge to the publicís sense of domestic well-being. The
economic self-denial (that is, defense spending) and the human sacrifice
(casualties, even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are
uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy
is inimical to imperial mobilization." (p.35)
