The “Russian” secret political police and the future of the Russian Federation
The CIA – run secret political police in the USSR and then Russia do not show their hand to the public. The CIA – run KGB constantly touted its firm, unwavering allegiance to the Soviet Union, while all the time it promoted hardened enemies of the USSR, agents of US imperialism to leading positions in the Communist Party and government. Simultaneously, the CIA – run KGB suppressed efforts of honest people to attain positions of influence and power. The result is well known: there no longer is a Soviet Union.
Pardon me for immodesty, but the Arnold Lockshin story also offers an important insight into the operations of the KGB in Soviet times and the FSB in today’s Russia. What happened to Arnold Lockshin – who does not aspire to any power – is an example of how the CIA-KGB-FSB system works. The CIA and the local secret political police are also concerned about my knowledge – obtained through nearly a lifetime of experience and study — of their operations and intentions.
US imperialism is striving with might and main to destroy the Russian Federation, aiming for the prospective dominance of America’s ruling class over a brutally divided country. The “Russian” FSB (ФСБ — Федеральная служба безопасности).implements these policies while putting on the act of being “super-patriots.”
Zbigniew Brzezinski, perhaps the leading ideologist of modern day US imperialism, calls for dividing the Russian Federation into three parts. Cynically, Brzezinski-baby is being too modest; US imperialism aims to divide Russian into something like 33 parts.
The dismemberment of the Soviet Union into many separate countries serves as a template, as did the forced destruction of the former Yugoslavia. The aim: not only to radically divide the target country, but to install in power phony local “nationalists, who are in fact totally subservient to US imperialism. We have a living example of this kind of operation in Ukraine, where ultra-nationalism and fervent hatred of Russia are inculcated to hide the absolute subservience of the pro-fascist Kiev clique to the US.
CIA-KGB and CIA-FSB operations were/are not necessarily complicated. An agent can simply present himself to almost anyone and then order that individual – or groups of individuals — in the name of “national security” to effect whatever actions the CIA-FSB deem necessary: to stop communicating with or having normal relations with the target, to inflict psychological or more serious harm to the target, to sabotage his work, etc. A word from the CIA-KGB or the CIA-FSB was/is almost always more than sufficient. The system is virtually identical to what the FBI does in the United States.
Who would have challenged the KGB? Who would now counteract or even challenge the KGB’s successor, the FSB? Who would take that risk, and for what purpose? Virtually no one even suspected the real nature of the KGB in Soviet times or imagines that the FSB today acts on the orders of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) of the United States of America. Of course, compliance with CIA-KGB or CIA-FSB orders is virtually guaranteed.
A note about the internet. The internet was devised and popularized by the US secret “intelligence agencies.” It has a two-fold purpose:
First, to spy on virtually everyone in the world – to know their thoughts, mood and intentions.
“The NSA (US National Security Agency — AL), intent on exploiting the communications revolution to the full, is developing ever more intrusive programmes in pursuit of its ambition to have surveillance cover of the whole planet:” (Portrait of the NSA: no detail too small in quest for total surveillance The Observer 2.11.2013).
“The National Security Agency emerges as an electronic omnivore of staggering capabilities, eavesdropping and hacking its way around the world to strip governments and other targets of their secrets, all the while enforcing the utmost secrecy about its own operations. It spies routinely on friends as well as foes…
“The agency… has turned the nation’s Internet and telecommunications companies into collection partners…Today, with personal computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones in most homes and government offices in the developed world, hacking has become the agency’s growth area.
«Today’s N.S.A… sucks the contents from fiber-optic cables, sits on telephone switches and Internet hubs, digitally burglarizes laptops and plants bugs on smartphones around the globe.» («No Morsel Too Miniscule for All-Consuming N.S.A.”, The New York Times 2.11.2013).
Secondly, to massively propagandize. The US secret political police can up-load many, many thousands of fake “spontaneous” twitters and e-mails and videos to “create” mass sentiment and a “mass movement” backing a particular effort of US imperialism.
It follows that the US secret political police agencies can manipulate electronic communications at will. The CIA-FSB, for instance, allows me to publish blogs, but they prevent me from commenting on English-language articles and block almost all e-mails sent to me and comments to my material in Russian or English. Thereby effectively preventing me from communicating with interested parties.
As along as I – a target – write blogs, the CIA-FSB obtains a “window” on my thinking.
But, if “necessary,” my access to the internet can be cut off at any time.
Conclusion: if the CIA hold on the “Russian” secret political police is not broken, the Russian Federation has a very bleak future. In fact, no long-term future.
The CIA-KGB did their demolition job; not it is the turn of the CIA-FSB
