Stratfor Director: The United States will maintain constant tensions in Europe and will not allow it to be independent

71
In the US, in addition to state intelligence agencies, there are also private ones, which the government often uses in those countries where the Americans arrive with their “peaceful” missions. John Friedman, director of one such company called Stratfor, recently said that local wars in Europe are beneficial for Washington, which allow it to control any sovereign territory. He writes about it To Pravda.Ru.

Stratfor Director: The United States will maintain constant tensions in Europe and will not allow it to be independent


Speaking at the Chicago Council for Global Affairs, Friedman said that shadow organizations are part of the US intelligence system, and they can use such methods that “original” intelligence cannot afford.

Referring to the issue of martial law in Europe, he said: “In the future, Europe, I think, will not be involved in big wars as before, but Europe will return to the natural situation of humanity: there will be wars in Europe, there will be periods of peace. Europeans will die in wars. ”

“There will be conflicts in Europe, as there have already been conflicts - in Yugoslavia and now in Ukraine,” Friedman noted. America is interested in this.

“About European relations with the United States. We have no relationship with Europe. We have relations with Romania, with France and so on. There is no Europe, with which the United States has any relations, ”he said, adding that in terms of achieving the goals, Washington“ should not reckon with its allies. ” According to him, in many cases, "the United States acts to bypass NATO, because NATO decisions can be made only unanimously by all NATO members."

“The best way to crush the enemy fleet is to prevent the enemy from building his fleet ... I would recommend following the policy of Ronald Reagan in Iran and Iraq. Reagan supported both belligerents, so they fought with each other, not against us. It was cynical, immoral, but it worked, ”the director said.

    Washington benefits from local wars in Europe, which make it possible to put any sovereign territories under its control - the implementation of the "divide and rule" principle. Create chaos everywhere and only America should be an island of stability. Then everyone will run only there. What the Americans are trying to achieve.

          There is such a dock. the film "Guns, Germs and Steel". It provides an answer to this question, when the Indians died out from European microbes, and because of African microbes, the Europeans could not gain a foothold in Africa, so they went by the way of transporting African slaves. With all due respect to the Indians and Negroes, but the truth is more precious that those that these are notorious cannibals, with terrible bloody rituals, and their continents cannot be called paradise, tk. you gape and gobble up, after torturing it pretty much. The Russians, though more tolerant, but faced with this disgrace, would have responded adequately, but although Miklouho-Maclay's experience is available (though evil tongues say that he spread a rumor to the simple-minded islanders who ate Cook, which he himself is not very tasty).

        Yesterday, Kiselev had more details about the interview with this pepper.
        So, there Friedman voiced an interesting thought, not mentioned in this article.
        Not verbatim:
        America is the only country capable of controlling the entire World Ocean. To control is to influence other countries. But America will fight on land only as a last resort, and until then - arms supplies, help from instructors, pressure from sanctions, etc. But, most importantly, the outbreak of wars between the unwanted and by involving others in these wars (read - Europe).
        And most importantly: the nightmare of the United States is the rapprochement between Russia and Germany. The merger of German finance and technology with Russian resources is the only thing that really threatens the United States.

          I also drew attention to this. But ... either this Friedman was completely numb, or he deliberately misleads the audience (just for what?). Well, Germany gave up on us when there is China and South Korea with no less technological potential. Yes, and we, if necessary. it’s only a pity in critical situations that we can create technologies that neither Germans nor Americans have dreamed of. Apparently, Friedman is not well versed in us (and no one understands us, even ourselves!), Which is unacceptable for a person of his profession and can be very expensive both for himself and his country.

      Oleg, you know, in my opinion, Washington benefits from local wars EVERYWHERE, except the US itself. They, like vampires, feed on the blood and grief of other peoples. For them, everyone, except the Americans, are second-class people - subhumans, or "eubermensch", in the terminology of the ideologists of the Third Reich. And they - "Untermensch" - superhumans to whom all must obey. So, for me, the current leaders of the United States are no different from the cannibals of Hitler's Germany.

      The hottest spot in Europe is Donbass. There are pouring Russian blood contradictions between Europe and the United States. Crush the war, spread it further, but later. Update - accelerate political sepsis within Ukraine, but with possible Western military intervention to prevent and pacify. It is closer to World War II. So surgery (war) or no less painful therapy? Western democracy mines of mortgage interest have established around the world. Where it explodes and where it detonates, that’s the question.

        These are very old plans, Friedman confirmed that they will not depart from these plans. It seems to me easy to tear the Germans away from us, so they will make chaos on this strip, so it’s better for the Germans to pull the Baltic states to their side, so they prove that they are the real EU, or it will be the same in Ukraine and then certainly aufiderzeyn, then the Germans Americans will be more obedient than the Japanese. Think in Germany now no one steers at all and this is very dangerous.

    Pancake. This is so evident. America needs war. The fact is that they turned the dollar into a product, the most profitable product with low cost. Like any product, it is prone to overabundance, this is when a certain balance occurs with the equality of the quantity of those very dollars and the availability of goods. What actions does America take in this situation? Of course, it initiates a military conflict in one or another country of the world. The country, on which the democratizer’s choice fell, begins to spend dollars on the war, on restoration after the war, etc. The US FR machine begins to work. If you consider that after the war or all kinds of color revolutions, US puppets usually come to power, they get markets, a field of activity for their corporations and access to resources. So war and all kinds of color revolutions, such as the revolution of roses and the Arab spring, are a vital necessity for the USA.

    In general, this is frank, not even a spit, but a grub in the face of Europe. So they must have spawned themselves. So we got the result.

    As bastards have been since the enslavement of the Indian people, they remain so to this day.

    I read komenty and wonder.
    No one even hinted
    that she went to vabank.
    Strange.
    Any mistake "in the hand" will force the mattress Semites to bluff.
    Ie no longer think about the consequences.
    And that means war.
    By the way, countries will not take revenge on mattresses.
    Since there are essentially two mattresses.
    One Semitic mattress.
    Another mattress of blacks.
    There are still Indians, but they are no longer worth considering.

    Yeah, dude finally can’t get it. And most importantly, he speaks openly about this, apparently not afraid of a subsequent reaction. Actually, he voiced what everyone had already seen. Is it that America decided to go all-in for an open confrontation? Of course, I may be paranoid, but it seems to me that such speeches are made for a reason.

    they fought with each other not against us. It was cynical, immoral, but it worked, ”the director said.
    Like all policies of the Americans - cynical and immoral!
    I hope that our government will have enough intelligence and determination to prevent a similar strategy with respect to Russia.

    Here it is the truth about the activities of the states, short and clear. Everything is fully consistent with the activities of the State Department.
    We must be friends against the states, who is for?

    Here is Friedman, and this is a XNUMX% Jew, and revealed the Jesuit essence of the most shitty country. They have no pity for the peoples, humanity and states, even taking their side. Cynical, immoral - no, the West has shown that there is nothing human in the world, and there is only a terrible two-legged beast from p-indosia
