The escalating downturn of US relations with Russia has made the world a more dangerous place than at any time during the Cold War, including during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
This film explores the many reasons why the US foreign policy establishment since the end of World War II hates all things, Russian. With the exception of Kennedy who sought to end nuclear weapons and seek peace with Russia, every president since has used Russia as a threat to American interests and security.
It could be argued that Ronald Reagan, a fierce anti-communist, did more than anyone to create the fear, distrust, and hatred of Russia when he publicly painted Russia as the Red Menace, the Evil Empire, and a nation without morals.
The film uses archival film from the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit in Reykjavik, Iceland in October 1986 when Reagan refused to give up his missile defense system – Star Wars – in exchange for completely doing away with all nuclear missiles.
In 1991, the Soviet Union had completely crumbled, and Gorbachev stepped down giving his rival Boris Yeltsin complete power over Russia.
The US government under George Herbert Walker Bush, together with his CIA old boy network plotted the breakup of the Soviet Union and the looting of its assets. Boris Yeltsin, in reality, a CIA asset, would be their man in Moscow.
Once they had their man in power, they had control of trillions of dollars worth of Russian gas, oil, nickel, gold, aluminum, and uranium. These KGB generals, Bush’s “Kids” as he called them, became the oligarchs who took control of the state’s assets. These CIA-run oligarchs betrayed their own country and people and literally stole billions and billions of dollars of assets.
The Bush cabal also used NGOs, the National Endowment for Democracy, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundation to make it all happen. It was George Soros, Larry Summers, Jeffrey Sachs, their Harvard University economists and the IMF who orchestrated the shock therapy on the Russian economy that led to the privatization of Russia.
The economic situation under Yeltsin, brought about by the CIA-run crowd, became so severe by the end of 1999 that Yeltsin appointed a young, unknown KGB agent, Vladimir Putin as acting president until elections could be held in March of 2000.
Is Putin a thug and an assassin? Or he is a great, patriotic leader of a country that was nearly destroyed by George Herbert Walker Bush’s CIA good old boys, Bill Clinton and the CIA asset Boris Yeltsin?
Perhaps the greatest fear is that Russia has regained its superpower status and because of the sanctions and military threats, has established close economic, diplomatic, political and military relations with China and the BRICS nations. And this is the greatest threat to American hegemony and capitalist interests around the world.
Nearly thirty years have past since the fall of the Soviet Union and still America and the West refuse to believe that Communism is dead and that Russia now embraces a market economy and most of the political and social values of the West. Thanks to Putin, Russia is again a global superpower and a threat to American hegemony and interests.
