Obama's Former Foreign Policy Adviser Said -- In 1997 -- that the U.S. Had to Gain Control of Ukraine posted 03/17/2014, 5:23 AM (Washington's Blog)
[Category: History]
The Battle for Ukraine Was Planned in 1997 ... Or Earlier

Neoconservatives planned regime change throughout the Middle East and North Africa 20 years ago. Robert Parry correctly points out that the Neocons have successfully "weathered the storm" of disdain after their Iraq war fiasco.But the truth is that Obama has long done his best to try to implement those Neocon plans.

Similarly, ever since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the U.S. has pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran.

In 1997, Obama's former foreign affairs adviser, and president Jimmy Carter's national security adviser -- Zbigniew Brzezinski -- wrote a book called The Grand Chessboard arguing arguing that the U.S. had to take control of Ukraine (as well as Azerbaijan, South Korea, Turkey and Iran) because they were "critically important geopolitical pivots".

Nelson Mandela is portrayed in the mainstream media as a peace-loving anti-apartheid revolutionary and philanthropist. But what is the truth about Nelson Mandela?
I enjoyed this article in the NYT pointing out he's a politician, and he is viewed as just that--a politician--in his home town of South Africa. The reverence for the man comes from those who don't know him and didn't live under his rule. Evidently, the people who worship him most in his own country are those from his own political party who benefit most from it. What a shocker. - Chris
