You might have heard of the communist or soviet “long term strategy”, but at what stage is it in 2018 and how secret can it still be?
Defectors from the Soviet Union who were more privy to secret strategy, such as intelligence officer Jan Šejna, reported on a secret long-term strategy of the communists:
- In stage 1 Stalinism should be ended and the Russian regime should give a more moderate impression to the world. At the same time, it was the plan to feign a deep split between Russia and China.
- Stage 2 was planned as a fake relaxation and “peaceful coexistence” with the capitalist West. Of course, the goal had been to infiltrate the West more deeply under this guise.
- Level 3 was “Perestroika” and “Glasnost”, including a withdrawal from East Germany and other territories and the introduction of various seemingly democratic elements.
- As soon as the West is relaxed, stage 4 will be launched in the form of a double attack on the West by Russia and China.
It can be safely assumed that the Western elites were always fully aware of the Communist long-term strategy. The more NATO and the Eastern Bloc threatened each other, the more the arms race could expand, the more the fear of a Third World War was stirred up and the more credible the Cold War seemed.
The actual implementation of the long-term strategy
Stage 1 of the long-term strategy might have ended the phase of Stalinism and deceived some people in the West, but it was no secret that the Gulag system continued, that the slightest criticism of the regime was still forbidden and that Moscow’s tanks would move in if a country wanted to break out of the Soviet prison. Moreover, the beginning of the Soviet nuclear weapons program took place during stage 1 – not exactly a convincing way to fake a peaceful course. Naturally, the West built more nukes accordingly. Stalin’s previous purges and the hasty and brutal forced collectivization were not only due to his psychopathic and narcissistic personality, but had the silent support of America and Britain. The many millions of deaths and the inefficiency of the planned communist economy were regarded by the Anglo-Americans as a successful self-sabotage. The more ordinary people died on the battlefield, suffered in the gulag and lived a poor existence, the better. We saw the same game in China: Mao and his comrades murdered tens of millions and the West remained silent or applauded the socialist “experiment”.
During Stage 2, trade between East and West continued to flourish, but at the same time the Cold War was in full swing, including revolutions and counterrevolutions in third world countries. Although the secret services of the Eastern Bloc were able to penetrate the West more deeply, it was nevertheless not possible to overcome the serious inefficiency of the planned communist economy and to sustainably finance the arms race. The Western elites watched with glee as dissatisfied Westerners took to the Communist faith and even went down the slippery slope of treason. Those who were against the establishment in the course of the “counter-culture movement” were infatuated with left beliefs and publicly expressed their solidarity with Fidel Castro, Ché Guevara, the Vietkong, the East German SED and the other communist parties. Communist China was promoted by Western elites during Stage 2 through technology sales and increased outsourcing of industrial production. Any fool should have known that China would afford an increasingly modern army, and inevitably an NBC weapons programme at some point. Before the communist revolution in China, the British colonial empire had made every effort to plunge China into chaos and destroy it. After the communist revolution in China, however, the Anglo-American elites promoted China as far as world power status. The only logical, blatant explanation for the actions of the Western powers is that the Western powers had airtight control mechanisms for China.
Level 3, glasnost and perestroika, deceived the Western citizens, but not the Western elites. The Soviet Union was flat broke, its ideology discredited and its military budget fell almost overnight by 96%. Admittedly, the Communists managed to briefly stage an attempt at a coup d’état with a few tanks on the Kremlin, so that the citizens of the world held their breath for a moment and then relaxed, because there seemed to be no communist revival. But every booby could clearly see that the elites from the party, the military and the KGB simply rebuilt the regime and fought for the best seats. A few puppets were turned into oligarchs of industry, Yeltsin became president and there were finally McDonalds restaurants in Moscow. Not exactly convincing and miles away from a strategic stroke of genius. For about 25 years NATO was concerned with “interventions” in the Balkans and, of course, with the war against Islamic terror, which provided the Russians with the necessary time to recover and rebuild the military. Russia’s defense budget, however, continues to pale compared to that of the United States. Even the EU states combined spend significantly more every year, while the percentage of the GDP spent on weapons in the individual member states is still relatively low. This means that every year the EU is increasing its armaments lead over Russia by a triple-digit billion range. If EU armaments expenditure rises to three or four percent of the GDPs of the member states, the armaments lead will increase by trillions over the next 10 years. How will Russia ever keep up? Given that Russia’s economy is already dependent on oil and gas sales to Europe? If these businesses were to cease, not even new gulags and slave workers in Russia would be able to make up for these losses. China was raised to superpower status during Stage 3 with the help of NATO states, even though it was quite obvious that the Chinese Communist Party would also increase their arms spending. You have to keep that in mind: Soviet Russia had just collapsed after an insane arms race, Moscow made all kinds of concessions to the world, but of course kept a stockpile of thousands of nuclear warheads. Why then should NATO continue to feed Communist China and risk Peking buying thousands of nuclear warheads in the foreseeable future? If NATO really wanted to bring the communist states to their knees, why did they continue to build up China? Why had technology been generously sold to the East during the Cold War anyway?
Stage 4, according to the communist long-term strategy, is to launch a surprise attack by Russia and China against NATO. But a real surprise it would be not. When the Ukrainian crisis began in 2014, more and more sanctions against Russia followed and also a gradual end to the cross-subsidies for China. At first, the Russian sanctions were still relatively manageable. Moscow was in fact given enough time to restructure. If the West had been consistent with sanctions from the outset and had stopped oil and gas trade between the EU and Russia, the Russian economy would have collapsed within a few weeks. China’s economic figures in recent years have been greatly exaggerated, the country is sitting on a mountain of debt and somehow will soon have to pay for 300 million pensioners. The generals, high intelligence officials and party officials in the East, who are not privy to the great game, are under enormous pressure and know that NATO will always win an arms race. The more time passes, the more NATO pulls away and becomes uncatchable in the foreseeable future. Eastern officials who are not fully in the know are under pressure to attack NATO or at least conquer any new territories and populations from around 2020 (when important armaments projects are realised). NATO may then act surprised and for a while may even pretend to be in serious trouble, but no one in the world can perform a real surprise attack against NATO.
