Why the U.S. wants to destroy Russia

This is a history lesson you should have learned at school, but didn’t.
Australian National Review – In 1904, Sir Halford Mackinder, the first Principal of University Extension College and Director of the London School of Economics, separated the world into a few regions: the “world island,” which included Europe, Asia and Africa [he also called it “heartland” and referred to Russia], the offshore islands, including the islands of Japan and the British Isles and the outlying islands, which included the continents of Australia, North America and South America. Sir Mackinder wrote that whoever controls the “heartland” [Russia] controls the “world island” and whoever controls that, controls the world.

According to a SOTT article, the massive size of Russia and the fact that it had been an Empire itself meant that it could not be conquered or dominated. Russia was the natural potential competitor of the Anglo-American elite that wanted to rule the world so, even before the turn of the 20th century, the U.S. elite and its British counterpart decided to neutralize Russia “as a threat to their plans for global hegemony.”
And so, after Russia had agreed to a convention with China, Great Britain and Japan signed the “Anglo-Japanese alliance” which stipulated that if either Great Britain or Japan were attacked by more than one enemy, they would support each other militarily. Japan and Tsarist Russia fought for one year, but it was a losing game from the very start for the latter, since the Japanese government received loans from American and British banks which totalled US$5 billion at today’s value, plus a US$200 million “loan” from Wall Street banker Jacob Schiff. Russia lost the war, largely due to the British and the Americans’ financial support, SOTT noted.
The Tsar had signed a treaty with Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm, which proved to be dangerous for the British government, which threatened to cut off funding to Russia and launch an anti-German propaganda campaign. After isolating Russia and breaking its economy, the only way to remove the threat entirely was to get rid of the Tsar and transform the country into a “captive” market for Western finance. To prepare the ground for the First World War, the British signed the Anglo-Russian entente and added France, thus allying the most powerful militaries against Germany. The war was officially ignited by the assassination of arch-duke Franz Ferdinand in 1914, but, taking into consideration that assassinations of nobility and royalty were fairly common back then, it is safe to say that the death of Ferdinand could not have provoked a world war, SOTT suggested.
The British-American well-oiled machine was working at full throttle, but the Tsar and the Kaiser were still exchanging telegrams in an attempt to avoid disaster. In a note to the Tsar, the Kaiser wrote: “We are brought into a situation which offers England the desired pretext for annihilating us under the hypocritical cloak of justice.”
The British-inspired Russo-Japanese war ignited the Russian “revolution” which paved the way for the Tsar’s overthrown and the coming to power of the Bolsheviks, a chain of events which would define Russia’s history for the next 70 years. Russian General Arsene de Goulevitch cited reports from journalists and local observers in Petrograd in 1917 of American and British agents handing out 25-rouble noted to soldiers of the Pavlovsky regiment just before they joined the so-called revolution.
With the Tsar gone and the Western-backed Bolsheviks in power, the United States along with other Western governments and corporations not only destroyed Russia’s industry and economy, but also broke off parts of the Russian empire. In 1952, German economist Gerhart Von Schulze-Gaevernitz suggested that the First World War’s de facto result was the “shift in the world’s centre of gravity from Europe, where it had existed since the days of Marathon, to America.” For 70 years, the U.S. and Western Europe expanded their global domination through a lie beautifully called “Communist threat,” until Vladimir Putin appeared on the political scene and the Western elites’ “we rule the world” party began to crumble, SOTT wrote.
Marginalizing Russia and preventing European nations from forming an alliance with it is harder to achieve today, as Putin is trying to set Russia free from the Western bankers’ toxic influence. The Anglo-American elite are resorting to desperate measures to maintain the global imbalance which took a century to construct, some of which can be observed with the naked eye: economic sanctions, a staged coup in Ukraine in 2014, manipulated price of oil and the assassination of “opposition figures” inside and outside Russia. “But nothing they do seems to phase Russia or divert it from the path it has chosen,” SOTT concluded.
