Stratfor: Ukraine Coup Plotted by US Over Russian Stance on Syria

OWoN: When will the US get it, and get out of global hegemony?

No surprise as everyone knows Nuland organized the overthrow. The call was leaked long ago, but interesting that Stratfor comes out saying the same.

Stratfor: Ukraine Coup Plotted by US Over Russian Stance on Syria

The United States plotted the coup which took place in Ukraine in February 2014 in response to Russia’s policy in Syria, says George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, known as "Shadow CIA"

19 December 2014

Moscow – The United States is behind the February coup in Kiev, which came in response to Russia’s stance on Syria, said George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, a global intelligence company.

Russia has repeatedly said that the coup in Kiev was organized by the US, Friedman told Kommersant newspaper. Indeed, it was the most overt coup in history, the political analyst stressed.

The United States decided to act following Russia’s successes in the Middle East, a key region for the US. Americans saw that Russians could influence what was happening in the Middle East, Friedman said. Russians are one of the many challenges in the region that the US faces, he stated. The US thought Russia’s activities were an attempt to harm Washington, the political analyst told the newspaper, adding that events in Ukraine should be viewed in this context.

Russians seem to have underestimated how seriously the US would react to Moscow’s activities in the region and that they would easily respond, Friedman said. The US understood that the thing Russia wants the least is instability in Ukraine, he added.

The head of Stratfor, also known as "The Shadow CIA," insisted that Russia’s involvement in Syria was not the only reason for the Ukrainian crisis. However, many in Washington started to perceive Russia as a problem, the expert told the newspaper, adding that at that time the US decided to divert Russia’s attention away from the Middle East.

Syria has been in a civil war since March 2011. Over 100,000 people have died as a result of the armed conflict. Russia repeatedly stated that the election of Syria's president Bashar Assad was legitimate, and that the people of Syria should control their future. From the beginning of the war the US supported the opposition and stated that the conflict would not be over with Assad in power.



  1. US is militarizing Ukraine to invade Russia. Sergei Glazyev (10 mins)

    Sergei Glazyev says Ukraine is occupied and controlled by the United States, which is hell-bent on causing a Fourth World War (he says the Cold War was the Third). Europe will once again be sacrificed to profit the USA, as it was in the previous world wars.

  2. Russian Nuclear Weapons In Cuba: Why Is The Public Not Outraged?

    The next issue that Americans still need to be aware of is the fact that Russia moved nuclear missiles into parts of Cuba in 2012. That's right 2012, so why would Obama disable our missile defense system in March of 2013 after knowing full well that Russia now has nuclear weapons in Cuba?

    Why is the public not outraged about Russian Nuclear weapons in Cuba? Because the public simply does not know about it or doesn’t believe it. Let’s look at a direct quote from the President of the Russian Federation in 2012:
    “In 2001 I, as the President of the Russian Federation and the supreme commander, deemed it advantageous to withdraw the radio-electronic center Lourdes from Cuba. In exchange for this, George Bush, the then U.S. president, has assured me that this decision would become the final confirmation that the Cold War was over and both of our states, getting rid of the relics of the Cold War, will start building a new relationship based on cooperation and transparency. In particular, Bush has convinced me that the U.S. missile defense system will never be deployed in Eastern Europe. (more)

  3. See report posted at link on OWoN website:

    P.P.S. We can now divulge that Russian President Vladimir Putin has presented 'smoking gun' evidence to the International Court at the Hague fingering the U.S. State Department directly ordering the coup in the Ukraine that removed their previous duly elected pro Russian president. Accordingly, both the French and German governments will soon announce that they will no longer take part in sanctions against the Russian Federation. Reference: Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann is considering freezing Deutsche Bank accounts that are loaded up with ass backwards derivatives and then buying purchasing Russian rubles.

  4. US Congress Decision Confirms Russia was Right on Syria
    There are no "good rebels" in Syria as Russia always said

    This article is not directly Russian-related. In fact it does not refer to Russia at all.

    However we are publishing it anyway because it provides a good example of how Russia’s criticisms of US foreign policy on a major international affairs issue turned out to be entirely correct.

    That is a fact that in the West and in the US especially goes almost completely unacknowledged.

    Additional funding for Syrian rebels was one of the spending items Congress didn’t approve in the last few days:

    As Congress struggles to pass a bill to fund the government for the rest of the year, one curious and significant item was left on the cutting room floor: a request from the Barack Obama administration for $300 million to expand the secret CIA program to arm the “moderate” Syrian rebels.

    The request, which administration officials had been lobbying for in recent weeks, was held up by the House Intelligence Committee, which has serious doubts about the Free Syrian Army and other rebel groups that for years have been receiving arms secretly from the U.S. and its allies, two administration officials told me.

    The committee members are quite right to have doubts about Washington’s proxies in Syria. It is more than a little strange that it has taken this long for members of Congress to realize that the groups that the U.S. has chosen to support aren’t reliable or effective, but I suppose it is better to acknowledge this now instead of waiting until later.

    That didn’t stop them from endorsing administration plans to arm and train these groups a few months ago, and it has done nothing to change the bizarre consensus view that the U.S. simply must find some faction in Syria’s civil war to support, but it’s a start.

    The real problem with U.S. policy in Syria and with the war against ISIS in particular is that the U.S. has plunged into a conflict in Syria before it considered any of the consequences of intervention.
