>Have America’s political and military leaders secretly hoisted the white flag of surrender to neo-Soviet Russia?
In a previous blog we referred to the clique of cabinet-level advisors from the Soviet-infiltrated Council on Foreign Relations, which has controlled the White House since at least FDR’s administration, grovelling before America’s enemies. We have also documented the formation of the highly secretive Kissinger-Primakov Strategic Working Group, also known as the “strategic vision group,” on US-Russian bilateral relations. This cabal of Soviet Leninists and globalist diplomats, politicians, and businessmen from the USA is scheduled to meet again in January 2008.
Yesterday’s unannounced meeting in Washington DC between Yuri Baluyevsky, Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, who referred to Americans as “evil” last month, and Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff since October, points strongly toward the incorporation of America into the Red World Order. Baluyevsky, whose finger is poised over Russia’s nuclear button, was received with full military honors. The DefenseTalk.com story below relates, unbelievably, that “Pentagon spokesmen said they had no information on the agenda for the sessions.” However, “US plans to install a radar and interceptor missiles in eastern Europe have been a growing source of contention between the two countries [USA and Russia].” No doubt the bellicose Gen. Baluyevsky intended to reiterate the Kremlin’s position on NMD with the utmost clarity.
At the same time communist mouthpiece Pravda reveals that Mullen and Baluyevsky signed a secret memorandum on defense cooperation. Following the meeting, US Navy Captain John Kirby, spokesman for Adm. Mullen, said: “The memorandum specifies the plan of defense cooperation and the compatibility of the armed forces of the two countries in 2008. It was a very fruitful, productive discussion that both parties benefited from, and the chairman desires to keep the content of those discussions between him and his counterpart.” Intriguingly, in quoting Kirby, the DefenseTalk.com story below deletes reference to the secret memorandum. Washington and Moscow are already engaged in defense cooperation activities, including the second stage of the Torgau 2007 joint military exercise, underway in Germany.

Russian military chief at Pentagon for talks

WASHINGTON: Russia’s armed forces chief met Tuesday at the Pentagon with his US counterpart for previously unannounced talks that come amid strains over US missile plans in eastern Europe. General Yury Baluyevsky was received with full military honors by Admiral Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the start of the talks.
Pentagon spokesmen said they had no information on the agenda for the sessions, but US plans to install a radar and interceptor missiles in eastern Europe have been a growing source of contention between the two countries.
“It was a very fruitful, productive discussion that both parties benefited from, and the chairman desires to keep the content of those discussions between him and his counterpart,” said Navy Captain John Kirby, a spokesman for Mullen.
Russia President Vladimir Putin last week signed a law suspending Russia’s participation in the 1990 Conventional Forces in Europe treaty, which limits the deployment of tanks and other military hardware in eastern Europe.
The suspension enters into force on December 12 but Russian military officials have said they have no immediate plans to move forces into Eastern Europe.
Nevertheless, a Russian general said last month that Moscow could counter US missile defense deployments in eastern Europe by stationing missiles in Belarus.
Russian officials also have responded dismissively to US proposals to cooperate on missile defense and to hold off on the activation of a European site until Iran flight tests a missile capable of reaching Europe.
Baluyevsky’s visit coincided with the release of a new US intelligence estimate that concludes that Iran halted a secret nuclear weapons program in 2003.
US intelligence officials say a uranium enrichment program that Iran says is for civilian purposes and its efforts to develop longer range missiles keeps Tehran’s nuclear options open.
Washington insists its plans for missile defense sites in Poland and the Czech Republic are aimed at countering a looming Iranian ballistic missile threat, not Russia’s vast nuclear arsenal.
But the Russians have argued that the Iranian threat is not imminent, and that missile defense systems in eastern Europe could be turned against Russia’s nuclear deterrent.
While Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, among others, are CFR members, we could not confirm Admiral Mullen’s membership in that pro-communist/pro-world government body. However, the admiral’s foreign policy advisor during his stint as Chief of Naval Operations (2005-2007) was former US ambassador Carey Cavanaugh, who is CFR.
Cavanaugh’s Cold War-era career is instructive and reveals his associations with Communist Bloc officials: US Mission to Berlin (West), consular affairs; Office of Soviet Affairs in Washington, bilateral relations and arms control, including implementation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty; and US embassy in Moscow, political officer, Soviet relations towards Europe and arms control issues. In the “post”-Cold War period Cavanaugh was posted as chargé d’affaires to Tblisi where Georgia’s Communist Party boss Eduard Shevardnadze had seized power from the democratically elected President Zviad Gamsakhurdia in January 1992.
Russian oligarch and Alfa Group founder Mikhail Fridman serves on the CFR’s International Advisory Board, as well as the state-run Public Chamber of Russia, proposed by President Vladimir Putin in 2004 to analyze draft legislation. Fridman is “ex”-Komsomol. Like Alger Hiss, who was an advisor to FDR and secretary general of the United Nations Conference on International Organization, he is an example of current Soviet infiltration of the august CFR.
Interestingly, US political economist Francis Fukuyama, whose 1991 book The End of History and the Last Man argued in favor of the post-Cold War demise of ideology–playing nicely into the hands of the Soviet strategists who asserted that communism was “dead”–belongs to the CFR too.
In summary, the CFR’s subversive influence extends into those corridors of power that formulate and execute the US government’s military policy.
Incidentally, Putin and his top general, citing “NATO aggression,” have already formally imposed a moratorium on Russian compliance to the Conventional Forces in Europe Treaty, effective December 12, and have threatened to pull out of the INF Treaty as well. The Kremlin is currently building a legal case for withdrawing from the latter too. Today Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated at a Moscow news conference:
We regret that some of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s member-states, in particular, the United States, have declined to support at the OSCE’s meeting in Madrid, the Russian- American initiative to turn the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) into a universal accord. We urged our American partners to submit a draft resolution so it would be supported by the ministers all OSCE member-states. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown to us, the American colleagues gave up this proposal. Given the partners’ position, the OSCE’s decisions in favor of this crucial initiative have not been made.
What Lavrov was implying: The Americans refuse to turn the INF into a universal accord so let’s scrap it altogether.
