The Battle for Eurasia Part 1

Since we are starting halfway into a movie, let’s clear up what we are going to write. The main story at the moment has to do with the turmoil in the Middle East, the destablization of the financial system along with an increase of terror globally. Why are these things happening? To understand the current, let’s go back for a quick review of recent history. The best way of explaining current events is to look at it as a continuous story for the domination of the globe. And the title of this is called “the battle for Eurasia”

There are 3 distinct phases of this battle. The first phase was from 1885 to 1920. The second phase was from 1921 to 1945. The third and current phase is from 1991 to present. The period between 1945 and 1990 is called “the American Century”.

 We shall go straight into the third phase.

The Battle for Eurasia: –

In order to better understand geopolitics, it is worth having a world map on hand. As one can see the map below, the Eurasian continent is the entire region of Europe and Asia – from Britain in the west to Japan in the east; from the Arctic to the Mediterranean, to the Middle East, and heading down to Sri Lanka and Indonesia. It’s a vast region, home to most of humanity.

 Starting in the early 1600s, European powers began to travel, to Africa, Latin America and Asia. Over the next 3 centuries, these European powers had managed to bring a large part of the globe under their control. The most successful of the European countries was Britain and France. The British Empire became a global power. This power was based on control of the maritime routes. This control helped Britain become the leading world power for 150 years; from 1800 to 1945. A key aspect of this was to exercise control over the maritime chokepoints of the world trade routes: such as Gibraltar, the Suez Canal, the Red Sea, the Strait of Hormuz, and the Malacca straits.

 Look at the map, and one notices a distinction between two groups of world powers. The first is the maritime powers, such as Britain, Japan, and the USA. The second group of powers is land based, such as Russia, India, China and Germany. There has been a bitter rivalry between these groups for economic and financial domination. For the past 2 centuries, the power advantage rested with the maritime powers.

 At the end of World War 2 (WW2), in 1945, global power had shifted from Britain to America. During the next 45 years, the US, and its institutions came to dominate the world. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, in 1991, the US emerged without any rivals, to contest it for global domination.

   The American financier elite, centered in New York, planned a final push to secure their position in the world. Their reasoning went like this:

 The Cold War or ideological contest between the capitalist west and the communist bloc (Russia and China) had come to an end. A whole new equation was needed to go forward, in maintaining the status of the US as a dominant global power.

 We are today living in the hydrocarbon age. All modern economies are energy based. Without energy (oil and gas), we regress back to the standard of living of the 19th century. Just as a human body depends on oxygen to survive, so a modern economy needs energy to function. This energy comes in the form of coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear. The most important of these are oil and gas.

 As Henry Kissinger once remarked in the 1970s, “who controls food controls people. Who controls finance controls governments? Who controls oil controls the destinies of nations”? Kissinger at that time was the US Secretary of State. It is a well-known fact that Kissinger began his career serving the Rockefeller brothers, Nelson and David, beginning in the mid-1950s. And he has remained a loyal servant of the family to date. Although a Jew, he was once chastised by former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir for not doing enough to help Israel; to which Kissinger replied, and told her that “my first loyalty is to the Rockefeller family, then America, and then Israel”.

 For the US, it was going to an economic war going forward, backed up by military force.  The Rockefeller family motto is “competition is a sin”. The two regions that posed the greatest economic rivals to the US was western Europe (France, Germany, Italy) and East Asia (China and Japan). These were advanced economies whose key vulnerability was its reliance on imported energy, principally from the Middle East. The US reckoned that if they gained undisputed control of the energy resources of the Middle East and surrounding regions, then they would be in a position to dictate the economic well-being of these two zones, and ultimately gain control over these two zones. No rival economic bloc would be allowed to challenge American domination, and that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia, and thus challenging America. We shall see how the US went about it, using all their tools on hand. These tools include finance, economics, military force, food, health, religion, and the manipulation of public opinion, amongst others. This is the key to understanding all that has happened since 1991 to present.

 This was the analysis of the Rockefeller Network of Power (or the New York elite). It was best summed up by another former US official, Carter’s National security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski (another loyal servant of David Rockefeller), in his best-selling book, “The Grand Chessboard”, published in 1997. A few quotes are as follows: –

“For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia – – – America’s global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained”;

“In this context, how America ‘manages ‘Eurasia is critical. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world’s most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination – – – “.

“About 75% of the world’s people live in Eurasia, and most of the world’s physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for about 60% (now 75%) of the world’s GNP and about 75% of the world’s known energy resources. Eurasia is also the location of most of the world’s politically assertive and dynamic states. All but one of the world’s nuclear powers is located in Eurasia. The world’s two most populous aspirants to regional domination are global influence are Eurasian. All of the world’s political and economic challengers to American primacy are Eurasian”.

 “In brief, for the US, Eurasian geo-strategy involves the purposeful management of geo-strategically dynamic states – – – to put it into terminology that goes back to the most brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geo-strategy are to:-

  1. Maintain security dependence among the vassals (the EU, Korea, and Japan)
  2. To keep tributaries pliant and protected (the above plus others such as Israel, the Arab world)
  3. To keep the barbarians from coming together (Russia, China, Iran).

Maritime Power vs Land-Based Powers:

Look at the map below. Up until the 15th Century, the two outer ends of Eurasia were connected by the Silk Route running from China to Europe, via central Eurasia (Turkey and Central Asia). Trade was conducted overland. When the Ottoman Empire came into being in 1453, European states such as Portugal, Spain, France and Britain began searching for new routes to the east via the seas. Thus, began the rise of the maritime powers. By the 19th century, Britain became the dominant global power due to its control over the maritime routes. In the meantime, the over-land corridor between China and Europe withered away. Further, Britain would not allow any threat to its Empire by allowing any Eurasian power to build such transportation corridors that would threaten its hold over international trade. Even today, most of the world’s trade (90%) is conducted over maritime routes. Even the First World War was precipitated by Germany building a railway line from Berlin to Baghdad. The British Empire ruled the seas, and this fact enabled its domination as a global power. British power declined by the 1930s, only to be replaced by another rising maritime power- the United States, which would become a dominant global power- which is now being challenged by several Eurasian nations.

 Fast forward to today….

The center of Eurasia and the Middle East is an oil-rich area. Control of this would be the key to the control of Eurasia, especially its western and eastern zones that rely on energy imports from the Middle East. Also, the center of Eurasia is the missing link, in terms of connecting both ends, via transportation corridors. This will enable Eurasia to become independent of the maritime powers, principally the US Navy. If both ends of Eurasia were connected to the center, and then to each other, then there would be no need for the US military presence in Eurasia. The US will become redundant. Its global dominance will decline, and American power will crumble. Look at the map below. The center of Eurasia is a zone of “potential instability”. Control the center, and one can control the both ends of Eurasia.

 So, the game-plan of the US could not have been    more clearly spelt out. How they went about achieving this is part of what we are informing you about.

NATO & the Fall of the Soviet Union:

 By 1989, it was becoming clear that the Soviet Union would cease to exist shortly. Historically, Germany and Russia were natural allies. Germany had the technological and industrial know how, which Russia lacked, and Russia had the natural resources which Germany needed. The British always feared a tie-up between these two countries. With the end of the Second World War, America put an Iron Curtain between Russia and Europe, and further divided Germany into 2 parts. Trade between Russia and Europe was very limited.

 Europe’s largest and most influential bank is Germany’s deutsche Bank. Its head in 1989 was Alfred Herrhausen. In December of 1989, he proposed to rebuild Russia and Eastern Europe through revitalizing its industrial infrastructure, in return for much needed Russian raw materials – mainly oil and gas. This ran counter to the Rockefeller plan, which was to de-industrialise Russia, and make it a primary exporter of raw materials. Furthermore, it was to be looted dry, so that it never poses a threat to America’s game plan for Eurasia.

 Through a CIA-controlled terrorist entity, the Baader-Meinhof Gang, the CIA killed Herrhausen in a car bombing a day before he was to leave for New York to implement his plan. Note that the CIA is a Rockefeller entity, from the day it was born.  It was in fact created out of the various intelligence operations of the vast Rockefeller business empire. The difference was that the government paid for its costs, while the benefits accrued to the Rockefeller family. When NATO was formed in 1949, its motto was to “keep the Germans down, the Russians out, and the Americans in”. Now, NATO would proceed to creep up to the borders of Russia itself, while bringing all the former states that were in Moscow’s orbit, into America’s orbit, despite American assurances to the Russians that it would not do so. The American game-plan was to push Russia out of Europe altogether. It was the largest country in the world, spanning 11 time zones, and it was in all three spheres of Eurasia. It was in Europe, Asia and the Caucasus. If America could push Russia out of Europe, and re-orient Ukraine towards the West, then Russia would no longer be a Eurasian giant, but an Asian one instead. We shall examine these in detail in the next part of this article.
