George Friedman: A Neocon’s Blatant Speech on U.S.–Exceptionalism and U.S. Single-Handed International Warmongering Rights

Stratfor, a U.S. neocon geopolitical think-tank, should be considered as an extended arm of the United States’ Criminal Information Agency also known as the CIA.  George Friedman, a Jewish Hungarian naturalized U.S. citizen, is the CEO and co-founder of Stratfor: an organization that has often been described as the “Shadow CIA.” Geopolitical News considers Stratfor’s writings and geopolitical views as an unashamed ambassador for the Anglo-American neocon doctrine of worldwide hegemonic dominance or as coined by F. William Engdhal: Full Spectrum Dominance Totalitarian Democracy.

In order to remain a monocentric Empire, Friedman says, the United States of America must make sure, as it has been doing since World War One and for the last hundred years, that a rapprochement between Germany and Russia never takes place. A pluricentric world could threaten the U.S. Empire particularly a Russo-German alliance that would combine Germany’s state of the art technology and Russia’s vast amount of natural resources.

Another U.S. center of neo conservative Anglo American factories is the CCGA: The Chicago Council on Global Affairs. The CCGA is a non-elected, de facto U.S. government agency where renowned world leaders such as John Kerry, former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and Dr. Angela Merkel have all held speeches.  

In George Friedman’s CCGA speech, “Europe — Destined for Conflict?” (February 3rd of 2015), Friedman cynically touches on very sensitive nerves when straightforwardly admitting that the U.S. coup d’état in Ukraine was the “most blatant coup in history.” Two main points emerge from Friedman’s speech: 1. Creation of a European cordon sanitaire between Western Europe and Russia. 2. Prevention of a rapprochement thus détente and cooperation between Russia and Germany.

1. Creation of a European cordon sanitaire

U.S. policy of containment encircling Russia

Cordon sanitaire according Wikipedia “is a French phrase that, literally translated, means ‘sanitary cordon’. It originally denoted a barrier implemented to stop the spread of infectious diseases. It may be used interchangeably with the term ‘quarantine’, and although the terms are related, cordon sanitaire refers to the restriction of movement of people within a defined geographic area, such as a community. The term is also often used metaphorically, in English, to refer to attempts to prevent the spread of an ideology deemed unwanted or dangerous.” 

French Prime Minister George Clémenceau (1917—1920) is credited with the first use of the phrase as a metaphor for ideological containment. In March 1919, he urged the newly independent border states that had seceded from Russian Empire and Soviet Russia to form a defensive union and thus quarantine the spread of communism to Western Europe: he called such an alliance a cordon sanitaire. As a native speaker of French, I can only underline the arrogance and rudeness of such geopolitical choice of words.

George Friedman speaking at the CCGA

Getting back to George Friedman’s CCGA speech and the Q&A session that followed, let’s review Friedman’s answer to an attendee’s first question:

(44:50) “Mr. Friedman, thank you for your analysis very much appreciated. If you are in Ukraine right now, and you are the Ukrainian government . . . or the people . . . what do you do? . . . What is next for Ukraine?”

(46:44 —48:10) George Friedman’s answer: “. . . He [ Lt.Gen. Ben Hodges, Commander U.S. Army Europe ] then left and announced . . . that the U.S. will be pre-positioning armor, artillery and other equipment in the Baltic [Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania], Poland, Romania and Bulgaria, which is a very interesting point . . . In all of this, the United States acted outside the context of NATO . . . So the point is, the United States is prepared to create a cordon sanitaire around Russia. Russia knows it, Russia believes the United States intends to break the Russian Federation; I think that, as Peter Lorry put it, ‘We do not want to kill you, we just want to hurt you a little bit.’ Either way, we are back in the [Cold War] old game (emphasis Geopolitical News) . . .

2. Prevention of a rapprochement between Russia and Germany

The second question asked is of quintessential importance because it nails the U.S. perspectives vis à vis its European geopolitical ambitions:

(53:17 — 53:34) Attendee question: “is Islamist extremism really the major threat to the USA and will it die on its own or will it keep growing?”

George Friedman’s answer: “It is a problem to the United States but it is not an existential threat; it has to be dealt with but it has to be dealt with proportionately; we have other foreign policy interests. Sothe primordial interest of the United States of America, over which for centuries we fought wars, First and Second and Cold War, has been the relationship between Germany and Russia because united they are the only force that could threaten us, and to make sure that does not happen (emphasis Geopolitical News), I say this as a possible victim of Islamic terrorism, it will happen … Even if we develop all of our efforts to preventing it, we will fail therefore if we do what we did in a decade after 9/11, which is utterly concentrate on that issue to the exclusion of all else, so that our army cannot fight unless it has sand under its feet, just not used to it, there are much larger dangers to the United States out there. It is very difficult to say to a country that has been hit by 9/11: take it in stride and no government can. But, the discipline of governance is that, while at the same time reassuring people that you are doing everything you can, you make sure you are not. . You are making as much as you reasonably should and our government… We have to remember the United States is like a fifteen year old, it’s manic depressive, in the morning it is love peace, love and happiness, at night it is suicidal because their best friend does not like them anymore: We are a very young empire we don’t even want to think about being an empire. We want to go home and have libertarian dreams: it won’t happen but it takes us a very long time to become mature. Georges Bush had not idea that his presidency was going to be about 9/11 and had no idea how to respond and neither did his critics. Barack Obama decided he could wish it all away. If he was nice, they won’t try to blow him up. We have to find a pattern of governance that combines an American Republic with what it never wanted to be, but we are almost one quarter of the world’s economy; we are going to piss people off a lot.”

In other words, the goal of the United States of America with its annual military budget exceeding 600 billion USD (more than all other nations’ military budgets combined) is to achieve the Pentagon’s Joint Vision 2020 of a unipolar world of full spectrum dominance: divide and conquer, Divide Et Impera.

George Friedman’s neocon views are sharp and high-pitched, cynical and arrogant, particularly when criticizing the U.S. wasting time and resources on a “Muslim threat” that does not qualify as an existential one! So one could and should ask: why on earth is the U.S. “allegedly fighting terrorism” in so many countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen via its proxy Saudi Arabia?

U.S. President Barack Obama’s Visit to Hannover | Brexit: End of the Anglosphere or Chinese Russian Threat to the London/Washington Financial Fiat Money Lords?

The end of the Anglo sphere as written recently in a Financial Times article should be attributed to a real Russia | China (SCO: Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, AIIB: Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and SGE: Shanghai Gold Exchange) threat to the Anglo-American Bankster Cabal fiat money trail (USD, GBP, EUR and YEN) hegemony; but certainly not to Britain’s [Br]exit from the European Union!

Is this the reason why the Establishment sent its Washington minion to Hannover (Germany) to make sure that vassal state Europe (and its leader Kanzler Merkel) obeys and dances to the tact of the Washington geopolitical chanson and neocolonialism agenda?

The fact that Britain has extended a financial arm towards China’s SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) and AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) is a thorn in the flesh of the Washington Régime struggling to defend its post-1971 USD fiat paper currency with “sister-paper-notes” EUR, GBP and YEN: more money cover-ups for the mighty king-dollar that could soon be dethroned by a gold backed Chinese Yuan!

Mayor of London Boris Johnson was accused of: “. . . ‘dog-whistle racism’ after suggesting that the ‘part-Kenyan’ Barack Obama has an ‘ancestral dislike of the British empire’ . . . Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP, said President [Barack Obama] should ‘butt out’, accusing him of being the most anti-British American president in history: ‘Mercifully, he won’t be in office for much longer.’”

I’ve often coined U.S President Barack Hussein Obama as the “Kenyan Squatter” but wrongly so! President Barack Obama, according the most official data, would have been born in Kenya in 1961 (was his U.S. birthcertificate forged?) A short overview of Kenya’s history is now à propos: Germans arrived in 1885 but handed the costal lines of former Kenyan territory to the British in 1888. “According to record, Kenya didn’t exist until 1963, two years after Obama was born and probably 27 years after his father’s birth . . . How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that didn’t yet exist and was known as “British East Africa Protectorate?” Kenyan Squatter ought to be renamed as: British East African Protectorate Squatter: Minutes stand as corrected!

Barack Obama’s (and Merkel) plaidoyer for Britain to remain in a “strong EU” is such of hypocritical duplicity! The United States agree to a “Strong Europe”, while at the same time promoting (with the help of Britain and France) the genocide of Europe’s strongest economy with an organized, and NGO financed, migrant German genocide? Maybe President Obama just wanted to reassure himself that Germany’s destruction was well under way! Let’s bear in mind that part of Washington’s geopolitical credo is to make sure that a Russian German entente Cordiale and rapprochement never takes place:  It is classified by geopolitical observer George Friedman as one of U.S. top geopolitical threats for ongoing 21st century U.S. hegemony. It is also the reason why the U.S. has “destabilized” Ukraine and offered Europe a vile coup d’état with the help of Erik Prince’ private Blackwater | Academi mercenaries!

Clipboard_Image 014Consider Blackwater as the new privatized face of the U.S. war machine, a classified group of mercenaries that handles “special U.S. assignments” such as the “Baghdad Bloody Sunday.” Prince’s Blackwater, that was awarded over a $1 billion in contracts from the U.S. State Department, is presently under Fed’s investigation! In the meanwhile, Erik Prince, former owner of Blackwater, whom we shall revisit in future installments, turned his back on Washington after he was thrown under the bus! he now offers his services to China (mostly in Africa) via Frontier Service Group. Further more, Erik Prince’ private forces would now operate in Libya “for the stated purpose of stopping the flow of refugees to Europe. Libya is one of the main routes from migrants trying to enter Europe from eastern Africa and parts of the central Sahel region. Prince has also long been interested in raising private military force to battle Islamic militant groups in a variety of countries.” Very much counterproductive to the U.S. (British and French) destabilization program in Northern Africa, part of the Middle East, the Ukraine, Georgia, the seven “Stans” (Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) and now Germany! One can obviously see why Eric Prince’ undertakings would be considered by Washington’s rogue régime as two military “faux-pas.

President Obama’s preaching against Brexit: What sort of duplicity and hypocrisy is this? Public Relation nonsense! Would the U.S. let itself have its constitution written in Venezuela, a country that has been additionally destroyed from within thanks to the back-up of a U.S. (led and financed) color revolution? Remember the 1992 uprising in Serbia? OTPOR was backed up by NGO’s (National Endowment for ‘Democracy’?) by the tune of millions? Wasn’t it the same logo that was found roughly 11 years later in the street of Cairo? A coincidence? I let you be the judge:

OTPUR/Serbia: US backed-up Color Revolution | Cairo: US backed-up Color Revolution

More (Obama/Merkel) propaganda: “And he [Obama] also recalled the devastating consequences of ‘intolerance and extreme nationalism’ that drenched Europe in blood during the 20th century. ‘In the last century, just twice in 30 years, the forces of empire and intolerance and extreme nationalism consumed this continent and cities like this one were largely reduced to rubble, Obama said. When I read those lines, it reminds me of 70’s Soviet Union communist propaganda. Our “On tour” Obama neo-con must obviously promote that Britain remains in the fascist EU alliance: What else? Much easier to control: A single phone call to Jean-Claude Juncker!

Geert Wilders (Partij voor de Vrijheid – PVV, NL), Nigel Farage (British UKIP) or Marine Le Pen (French Front National) or German AFD (Alternative für Deutschland) are just a few popular voices coming from the people who are fed up with the fascist financial lords that have overtaken both sides of the Atlantic.

The danger in Europe and the U.S. is not Russia but our own brand of politician traitors such as Kanzler Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Jean Claude Juncker, Martin Schulz, François Hollande and David Cameron:  these are the neo con fascists who are endangering the peace on our European Continent. Would Vladimir Putin behave the same way Berlin, Brussels and Washington do, we could be now in a full-fledged WWIII military conflict!
