Paul Craig Roberts had a recent article called, The Empire Was Temporarily Defeated In Macedonia. In it he describes how Washington backed NGO's are used to destabilise countries, but in this case they had failed.In the media recently there was an article titled: 'Putin is going to crack down on ‘undesirable, NGO’s' And the western propaganda machine is already at work saying that is an attack on free speech. The CIA uses its soft power all around the world to topple governments, and it has its mega rich backers, the US ruling class, so they can pump millions into right wing propaganda. And probably a lot of government money goes in too. Western people have no idea how much they are being fooled. Extract from a western propaganda media site:''Pavel Chikov, an expert in the subject, believes that these groups are being targeted [by Putin] because they’re considered “a risk to the current political regime”. He also believes that authorities are now already looking into groups such as Human Rights Watch, in order to bring prosecutions quickly.”Well, what Human Right Watch doing some work in US controlled Iraq or Afghanistan? Jonathon Steele is a psychopath who was the man behind the terror campaigns in central America during the 1070's. Many of the central American countries had a small ruling class surrounded by a huge over exploited poor. Because the Ruling class were so outnumbered he advised a system of extreme terror, torture, and cruelty to frighten the population into complete submission. This guy is off his rocker.

Despite this, these groups were to continue receiving support from Western militaries and their regional allies.Noting that “the Salafist [sic], the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [al-Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” the document states that “the West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition,” while Russia, China and Iran “support the [Assad] regime.”The 7-page DIA document states that al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), the precursor to the ‘Islamic State in Iraq,’ (ISI) which became the ‘Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,’ “supported the Syrian opposition from the beginning, both ideologically and through the media.”The formerly secret Pentagon report notes that the “rise of the insurgency in Syria” has increasingly taken a “sectarian direction,” attracting diverse support from Sunni “religious and tribal powers” across the region.In a section titled ‘The Future Assumptions of the Crisis,’ the DIA report predicts that while Assad’s regime will survive, retaining control over Syrian territory, the crisis will continue to escalate “into proxy war.”The document also recommends the creation of “safe havens under international sheltering, similar to what transpired in Libya when Benghazi was chosen as the command centre for the temporary government.”In Libya, anti-Gaddafi rebels, most of whom were al-Qaeda affiliated militias, were protected by NATO ‘safe havens’ (aka ‘no fly zones’).
