How American Lies Have Destabilized Global Regions

In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” ―Franklin D. Roosevelt (whether hehas been misquoted or not, the words echo with truth)
Lamentably, the great American nation has morphed into a destructive empire fed by the neocon lies and foreign policies formulated by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) in 1997 that has included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Bolton and Paul Wolfowitz among the 25 people responsible for the founding principles.
The fall of Communism had started with the impending defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan by 1988. This was a signal to the western powers, notably the USA under George Bush, to kick-start the events that would lead to the "Autumn of Nations" in Poland in May 1988 with a wave of strikes by the Solidarity chairman Lech Walesa. The success of the events quickly spread to Hungary, East Germany, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia and Romania. The Berlin wall came down in November 1989 and with that the unification of Germany and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in late 1991 and the Baltic and Central Asian countries declaring their independence.
These events were not accidental but carefully planned. It all started with the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) of space based systems called "Star Wars" in 1984 under Ronald Reagan who sold the lies to Mikhail Gorbachev in the Reykjavik, Iceland summit meeting in October 1986. Gorbachev had well anticipated that the Soviet Union was bogged down in Afghanistan and with the economy in dire straits it did not have the economic means to compete with the US for the SDI. Reagan had sensed that too and the US played the cards successfully.Gorbachev was fooled and SDI- an unfeasible lie- has never materialized to date.
In October 2001, US President George W. Bush and NATO allies invaded Afghanistan after the Taliban who'd helped defeat the Soviet Union rejected the American demand to hand over Bin Laden without convincing proof of his complicit(which never came) in the 11 September 2001 attack on the US. With the invasion and the subsequent occupation, the region which includes Afghanistan, former Soviet Union Central Asian States and Pakistan have become severely destabilized. Pakistan has paid the heaviest price for the destabilization in terms of terrorist activities, the military and para-military actions against the insurgents not only in remote northwestern areas but also in urban locations.
American and NATO lies with UN help have also destabilized the Arab Middle East region following the invasion of Iraq in March 2004 on the rationale that Saddam Hussein possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and that his government posed a threat to the United States and its allies with the WMDs. The WMDs were never found; they were lies. Since the invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, the regions destabilized by the western powers have been engulfed in terrorist activities, civil and sectarian wars.
The only country in the Middle and Near East region that has thus far refrained from being destabilized is Iran. In spite of crippling western sanctions, it has managed to avoid being destabilized mainly because the leadership and the people are unified in thwarting the western plans. Out of sheer frustration of not being able to implement plans to destabilize Iran, the US joined EU and Germany in talks for lifting sanctions if Iran gave would agree to give up its nuclear plans. The talks - on political level- are not accidental but planned with the objective of fomenting a major sectarian war between Iran and the coalition of Gulf Arab monarchies.
Russia is another region that is concurrently under the American radar for being destabilized. President Putin has emerged as a strong opposition to prevent Eurasian domination by US, NATO and the EU expansion along its western borders in Ukraine. The Ukraine crisis started in November 2013 when the elected pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych's government abandoned a deal in the form of a bribe with the European Union in favour of stronger ties with Russia. According to John J. Mearsheimer (Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago) "For Putin, the illegal (US engineered) overthrow of Ukraine’s democratically elected and pro-Russian president -- which he rightly labeled a ‘coup’ -- was the final straw." As a show of support US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt had toured the opposition camp in Kiev in December 2013. The coup resulted in Yanukovych fleeing to Russia and the NATO-EU supported Petro Poroshenko becoming Ukraine's President. Putin appropriately responded by taking Crimea (in February 2014), a peninsula he feared would host a NATO naval base.
Incidentally, Nuland is the wife of Robert Kagan who has been a PNAC Director. Kagan also serves on the State Department's Foreign Affairs Policy Board under Secretary of State John Kerry.
Russia has survived America's oil weapon and joint US-EU economic sanctions being used against it. The economic casualties instead are the EU nations Greece, Hungary and Serbia in the boiling pot with the other stronger EU nations simmering. Russia is being punished for its support of Syria through Iran.
China has been carefully observing the developments in the regions being destabilized by the US and NATO. China's Xi Jinping subtly demonstrated support for Russia by attending the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow with Putin (and Kazakhstan’s President Nazarbayev) on 9 May, 2015 after the western powers boycotted the event for the first time. The event included the participation of Chinese and Indian military in the parade. As reported in a news item "for the first time in 400 years Russia has finally fully turned her face to her natural ecosphere – the East."
China and Russia have also been fostering close geopolitical ties with their strategic partners Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian countries (Muslim bloc). These efforts are beginning to bear fruit with the most important development in the future being the China-Russia Eurasian Alliance through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. China understands it could well be destabilized next after the Middle East, Near East and Eurasian regions including Russia.
Zbginiew Brzezinski wrote in chapter 2 (The Eurasian Chessboard) of his book "The Grand Chessboard- American Primacy and its Geopolitical Imperatives" that for America the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia. For America, there is only one way to gain the prize: draw the Eurasian Alliance into the Great War along sectarian (Muslim-Arab and Shia-Sunni) lies in the Middle East and defeat it along with the Muslim bloc that joins the Eurasian alliance. For this reason, America and NATO are destabilizing the Middle East regions so that they are fractured with Arabs remaining western vassal states and ensuring America’s global supremacy as the greatest eternal empire in mankind’s history realizing the dream that David Rockefeller wrote in chapter 27 of his2002 book Memoirs “to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. ”
