Warmongers Are
Shootin' for Putin


THE WAY I SEE IT


By Michael Collins Piper

.Lest anyone doubt the New World Order elite are moving further toward outright efforts to destroy Russian leader Vladimir Putin — perhaps even force a war with Russia — The Washington Post made things abundantly clear on July 22 that the push is on to pressure President Barack Obama into taking a more combative stance against Putin. A longtime voice for what many call “the foreign policy establishment,” the Post once again adopted a notably hysterical tone toward Putin (quite in contrast to the paper’s otherwise staid tradition) and in a lead editorial, bluntly titled “Russia’s barbarism,” declared “the West needs a strategy to contain the world’s newest rogue state.”
Slamming Putin for denying responsibility for the loss over Ukraine of a Malaysian airliner — the circumstances of which remain in dispute, Western media claims notwithstanding — the Post issued a virtual call for war. “What’s needed,” roared the Post, “is a broad strategy for putting a stop to Mr. Putin’s aggression and, where possible, rolling it back. . . . It’s time to treat Mr. Putin’s Russia as what it has become — a dangerous outlaw regime that needs to be contained.”
The Post’s designation of Russia as “the world’s newest rogue state” was more than a rhetorical flourish. Instead — and be assured of this — it was a serious, explosive provocation.
While there’s no formal legal definition of a “rogue state” — though one dictionary defines it as “a nation or state regarded as breaking international law and posing a threat to the security of other nations”— the phrase is a now-much-used political term of art that, in statecraft, is the practical equivalent of calling a person a Holocaust denier or an anti-Semite.
“Rogue states rollback” — targeting Iraq and Iran — was first enunciated on May 22, 1993 by Martin Indyk (a former Israeli government propagandist and later U.S. ambassador to Israel) in a speech reported only by AFP’s predecessor — The Spotlight — to a pro-Israel group in Washington.
However, within a year, the concept of rogue states rollback was publicly unveiled in an article, “Confronting Backlash States,” in the March/April 1994 issue of Foreign Affairs, published by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the New York branch of the London-based Royal Institute of International Affairs, foreign policy arm of the Rothschild banking empire, premier patrons of Israel and the world Zionist network.
Since then, the smear “rogue state” has most often been slapped on nations perceived hostile to Israel, to Jewish interests or to schemes of the international banking establishment (much of which is in the grip of the Rothschild dynasty and elements in its sphere of influence).
In that respect, it’s perhaps no coincidence the Post complained on March 24 that “Putin has long argued that Russia’s wealthy . . . should keep their money inside Russia and away from a global economy controlled by Western interests.” That was a view reflective of Putin’s now-legendary war against the handful of Jewish “oligarchs,” many of whom held Israeli citizenship and squeezed Russia for its riches after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Describing Putin as being “animated by nationalist impulses and historic grievances,” the Post had a grievance of its own with Putin who — after assuming power — jailed one of Russia’s oligarchs who was a business partner of the Post’s then-publishers, the Graham family, heirs of Wall Street war profiteer Eugene Meyer — first president of the World Bank, an early member of the board of the Federal Reserve System and grandson of the grand rabbi of France.
On July 25, the Post amped up its assault on Putin. The latest shrieking attack now drew Barack Obama into the web, crying “President Obama hobnobs with donors as Russia escalates its war of aggression,” bemoaning the fact Obama had taken a fundraising trip to California amidst the crisis over the Malaysian airliner.
Most revealing was that the Post noted “frustration” with what it called “Mr. Obama’s weakness” in dealing with Putin was extending to the “top ranks of the Democratic Party,” citing three Putin bashers — Sens. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Carl Levin (Mich.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) — who are among the Senate’s most pivotal Democratic parrots for the Zionist lobby and allies of the top Republican critics of Putin — John McCain (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) — the Senate’s most energetic GOP advocates for Israel.
The nature of this “bipartisan” opposition to Putin — from pro-Zionist operatives — underscores that much of the anti-Putin clamor comes precisely because he is considered a danger to Israel and to monied Jewish interests in the West.
On July 28 — in case anyone missed the point — the Post’s editorial page editor Fred Hiatt — a CFR member — chimed in with a signed commentary again trashing Obama for, among other things, not being tough enough on Putin.
Describing Obama’s attempts at “a cautious, modest retreat” from U.S. meddling in global affairs— which the CFR man said was “an experiment gone wrong” that “expose[s] the dangers of U.S. disengagement” — Hiatt asserted that while Obama “argued that America should concentrate on ‘nation- building here at home,’ ”what resulted “is a far more dangerous world.”
Hiatt sounded like New York’s Jewish Press — a Putin-bashing journal — which on June 6 called Obama “the neo-isolationist president” whose foreign policy will “diminish America’s pivotal, stabilizing role around the world.”
As far back as Feb. 25, 2013, Post commentator Jennifer Rubin — associated with American Jewish Committee circles — declared that “for all intents and purposes, [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu is now the West’s protector.”
The Post echoes Jewish internationalist, advocate for Israel and fanatical Putin critic William Kristol who gloated in the neoconservative Weekly Standard on March 24 that “a war-weary public can be awakened and rallied . . . . All that’s needed is the rallying. And the turnaround can be fast.”
So the Post is doing the rallying. And as a media powerhouse, which shapes the mindset of official Washington, what the Post says is influential, no matter how much grassroots America might reject what the Post has to say.
