"Are popularly elected administrations all over the world becoming irrelevant; as the Western regime creates and then supports thuggish ‘opposition movements’ designed to destabilize any state that stands in the way of its desire to fully control the planet?"
That is the question raised by André Vltchek in his terrific new article, FROM EGYPT, UKRAINE, THE TURKISH-SYRIAN BORDER, CUBA AND THAILAND: West Manufactures “Opposition Movements.”
He continues: "The process, the tactics, are almost always the same: Western-paid media, or Western media directly, discredit designated popular governments, then ‘scandals’ are created, colors designated to some newly constructed ‘opposition’ movement, thugs selected and paid, and finally deadly weapons ‘miraculously’ appear at the ‘protest sites’. As long as the government is ‘nationalist’, really patriotic and defending the interests of its own people against international plunder...it gets marked, and it appears on an invisible but powerful hit list, old-fashioned mafia-style."
André Vltchek is the author (with Noam Chomsky) of On Western Terrorism. A novelist, filmmaker, journalist, photographer and playwright, he has reported for Truth Jihad Radio from Africa, the Middle East, and now Indonesia.
