American Neoconservatives Destroyed Mankind’s Hopes

- When Ronald Reagan turned his back on the
neoconservatives, fired them, and had some of them
prosecuted, his administration was free of their
evil influence, and President Reagan negotiated the
end of the Cold War with Soviet President Gorbachev.
The military/security complex, the CIA, and the
neocons were very much against ending the Cold War
as their budgets, power, and ideology were
threatened by the prospect of peace between the two
about this, because I was part of it. I helped
Reagan create the economic base for bringing the
threat of a new arms race to a failing Soviet
economy in order to pressure the Soviets into
agreement to end the Cold War, and I was appointed
to a secret presidential committee with subpeona
power over the CIA. The secret committee was
authorized by President Reagan to evaluate the CIA’s
claim that the Soviets would prevail in an arms
race. The secret committee concluded that this was
the CIA’s way of perpetuting the Cold War and the
H. W. Bush administration and its Secretary of State
James Baker kept Reagan’s promises to Gorbachev and
achieved the reunification of Germany with promises
that NATO would not move one inch to the East.
Clintons, for whom the accumulation of riches seems
to be their main purpose in life, violated the
assurances given by the United States that had ended
the Cold War. The two puppet presidents—George W.
Bush and Obama—who followed the Clintons lost
control of the US government to the neocons, who
promptly restarted the Cold War, believing in their
hubris and arrogance that History has chosen the US
to exercise hegemony over the world.
mankind’s chance for peace lost along with America’s
leadership of the world. Under neocon influence, the
United States government threw away its soft power
and its ability to lead the world into a harmonious
existance over which American influence would have

violence, attacking eight countries and fomenting
“color revolutions” in former Soviet republics.
consequence of this crazed insanity was to create an
economic and military strategic alliance between
Russia and China. Without the neocons’ arrogant
policy, this alliance would not exist. It was a
decade ago that I began writing about the strategic
alliance between Russia and China that is a response
to the neocon claim of US world hegemony.
strategic alliance between Russia and China is
militarily and economically too strong for
Washington. China controls the production of the
products of many of America’s leading corporations,
such as Apple. China has the largest foreign
exchange reserves in the world. China can, if the
government wishes, cause a massive increase in the
American money supply by dumping its trillions of
dollars of US financial assets.
a collapse of US Treasury prices, the Federal
Reserve would have to create trillions of new
dollars in order to purchase the dumped financial
instruments. The rest of the world would see another
expansion of dollars without an expansion of real US
output and become skepical of the US dollar. If the
world abandoned the US dollar, the US government
could no longer pay its bills.
dependent on Russian energy. Russia can cut off this
energy. There are no alternatives in the short-run,
and perhaps not in the long run. If Russia shuts off
the energy, Germany industry shuts down. Europeans
freeze to death in the winter. Despite these facts,
the neocons have forced Europe to impose economic
sanctions on Russia. What if Russia responded in
NATO, as US
military authorities admit, has no chance of
invading Russia or withstanding a Russian attack on
NATO. NATO is a cover for Washington’s war crimes.
It can provide no other service.

profits by offshoring their production to China,
China is moderinized many decades before the neocons
thought possible. China’s military forces are
moderized with Russian weapons technology. New

aircraft carriers obsolete.

America that is surrounded by Russia and China,

the neoconservatives accountable, not elect another
