US implementing project to capture Eurasia landmass: Pundit

“Zbigniew Brzezinski, architect of the Democrat's neoliberal foreign policy since the Carter administration, has been Obama's backstage foreign policy Svengali since before his nomination in 2008,” Professor Dennis Etler told Press TV on Sunday.

The United States is trying to implement a project to take control of Central Asia and ultimately all of the Eurasia landmass, an American political pundit says.

“To implement this project both Russia and China have to be destabilized, fragmented and converted into willing vassals of US imperialism,” Dennis Etler, a professor of Anthropology at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California, told Press TV on Sunday.

Professor Etler made the remarks when asked to comment on former US national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski’s statement about the shooting down of a Russian fighter jet by Turkish fighter aircraft inside Syria on Tuesday.

Brzezinski told POLITICO in an interview on Friday that Russia would have reacted much more strongly if its warplane was shot down by the United States instead of Turkey.

“I think it was quite lucky the shoot-down in Turkey was not done by us. Because Putin’s ability to digest it would be much smaller,” Brzezinski said.

“And I am glad it was not some sort of incident in the Baltic republics, where the Russian propensity to react would be greater; the Baltic capacity to respond would be minimal, and the necessity of a forceful response by the US would be self-evident,” he added.

Obama's backstage foreign policy Svengali

Professor Etler said “Brzezinski, architect of the Democrat's neoliberal foreign policy since the Carter administration, has been Obama's backstage foreign policy Svengali since before his nomination in 2008.

“Brzezinski has long been the mastermind of the US expansion of NATO to Russia's doorstep, the destabilization and Nazification of Ukraine and the Obama administration's ‘Asian Pivot.’

“His claim to fame however is based on the revival of the ‘Great Game,’ the geo-political contest between East and West for control of Central Asia and ultimately all of the Eurasia landmass.

“In order to implement this project both Russia and China have to be destabilized, fragmented and converted into willing vassals of US imperialism. This was and still is to be accomplished by a variety of means, proxy wars on the periphery of both Russia and China, economic and diplomatic isolation, military encirclement, political ‘democratization’ and sociocultural subversion.

“To promote this agenda ‘color revolutions’ funded and directed by the US State Department, George Soros inspired neo-liberal NGO ‘human rights’ campaigns and Clintonian ‘humanitarian interventions’ are employed to spread chaos and allow the US to meddle in the internal affairs of sovereign states to turn them into US assets in its contention with the rising Russian and Chinese superpowers.”

Best laid plans going astray?

Professor Etler stated that all the crises “in the world today, from Ukraine, Syria, and the South China Sea, to the spread of terrorism in Europe and Africa as well as the unprecedented flow of refugees from North Africa and the Middle East to Europe are the result of these policies.”

“But the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray. The heavy-handed US policy in Ukraine against the interests of the Russian Federation has backfired prompting Russia to pivot East in response to Western economic sanctions.

“The ever-strengthening alliance between Russia and China on all fronts is a deadly blow to US foreign policy which has long sought to pit the two against each other.

"The Sino-Russian alliance is complimentary. Russia has the military hardware, technology, savvy and will to defend its regional interests in both Europe and the Middle East, while China has the economic and diplomatic clout to advance its interests across the Eurasian landmass and into the rest of the world as well.”

Days of US unilateralism numbered

Professor Etler said “The days of US unilateralism are numbered. The Russian intervention into Syria at the request of the Syrian government has turned the tables on US imperialism's attempt to impose regime change one more time in the region in order to maintain its hegemony.

“Flailing about trying to salvage some degree of face the US has tried one stratagem after another to turn the tables on Russia in the Syrian debacle.

“US imperialism's strategy of using proxy forces to overthrow Basher al-Assad's presidency has resulted in the rise of Saudi and Turkish backed Takfiri terrorism in the guise of the so-called Islamic State which has become a two-edged sword and a difficult client to control.

“The US wish has been to use [Daesh] as a means to oust Assad and fragment Syria as has been done in Iraq, the former Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and elsewhere so it can then pick up the pieces. But other players have other ideas that may not coincide with US interests.”

US admission of failure

Professor Etler noted that “Brzezinski's latest statements are an admission of failure. He is backtracking from his aggressive demands that the US retaliate against Russia if it did not stop bombing US ‘assets’ in Syria.

“He is now advising some form of compromise and accommodation by saying, ‘There is no great national benefit for Russia in Assad remaining indefinitely in office, and there is no great national benefit for the US in forcing him to quit instantly, and there is also a shared interest in avoiding a major US-Russia collision.’

“It is only Russia's show of power that has forced these conciliatory statements by Brzezinski. But he and the administration he represents talk with forked tongue and will continue to advance their agenda at all costs.”
