It's by now
crystal clear the coup-in-progress against Donald
Trump is a made in USA regime change op using
standard hybrid war techniques such as manipulation
of public opinion by mainstream media.
The coup has
been articulated by the usual suspects, from neocons
to neoliberalcons, "humanitarian" imperialists
included, with a special starring role for their pet
agency, the CIA, which during the Bush-Obama
continuum further specialized in fake

donor event, blamed it all on a President Putin
vendetta. She may have internalized too many
Tarantino flicks – and her dialogue lines are far
from quirky; but still she
delivered a "He Came, He Saw, I Was Toast"
narrative according to which "Vladimir Putin himself
directed the covert cyber attacks against our
electoral system, against our democracy, apparently
because he has a personal beef against me."
And "the beef"
of course turned into a porterhouse steak with the
addition of the FBI as a Russian/WikiLeaks
accomplice – via Director James Comey's two letters
in the final days of the campaign. All bent
on compromising "the integrity of our democracy and
the security of our nation."
Cut to the
still ongoing legal "efforts" to turn Trump voters
around in the US Electoral College – spearheaded
by Democrat apparatchiks and widely applauded by the
glittering "liberal" galaxy. If facts on the ground
in Syria have smashed the "Assad must go" meme – an
Obama creation – at least now they have "Trump must
go" to rely on. Who wants (pregnant with history,
devastated) Aleppo when you can get Washington D.C.?
old "who lost Russia" question still permeates the
Beltway. The answer is stark; the deep state-woven

Russophobia seems to qualify as a psychotic
obsession deployed by the neocon/neoliberalcon
factions bent on pulling off a regime change
on Trump – before or after his inauguration.
Now compare it

of budding Sinophobia – as deployed by the

and yet capturing a maritime drone in the process.
Trump's response via his by now legendary

On the Pentagon front, it will be all
about geopolitical spheres of influence.

to double as a war criminal – bets can be made that
a "Nixon in China" moment, as engineered
by Kissinger, will be on the cards, as in "Trump

access to the South China Sea, from the Indian Ocean
to the Western Pacific; that's where Taiwan fits in
– in that roughly 600 km maritime stretch
between Taiwan and Okinawa.
Not really; hardcore geopolitics. As the asinine
regime change attempt on Trump fades into the annals
of failed color revolutions, keep your focus on the
South China Sea.
