THE CIA USING ISLAMISTS AND MENTALLY BACKWARD YOUTHS?

Islamist Mehsud; working for the CIA?


There are very few Islamists in Pakistan!

In the 2008 general election in Pakistan, "the parties linked, or at least sympathetic, to the Taliban and 'al Qaeda' saw their share of the votes slashed to about 3%".

So, only 3% are wild Islamists.

(Islam at the Ballot Box - WSJ.com )

Remember that the CIA can offer no evidence that Osama is in Pakistan.

And, the UK government can offer no evidence in its latest 'Pakistani terrorist plot'.

Reportedly, in Pakistan, the Islamists are secretly backed by the CIA.

The CIA appears to be using its Islamist friends to break up Pakistan.

Rememeber that in 1978, President Carter's regime was training and building up the wild Islamists in Afghanistan.

The aim was to topple the government of Afghanistan, which was seen as being friendly with Russia.

Afghanistan's heroin was important to the USA. Afghan poppy production tripled between 1979 and 82; and there are now drug lords in the government of President Hamid Karzai. (Afghanistan: U.S. Escalates the Illegal Drug Industry)


Who will control the oil and heroin?

Ahmed Quraishi, on 9 April 2009, at http://www.ahmedquraishi.com/, tells us:

Cut CIA’s Footprint In Pakistan

Among the points made:

1. Many in Pakistan believe the terror in Pakistan is linked to the CIA.

2. In July 2008, Pakistan’s military gave CIA and U.S. commanders evidence showing that the US government was indirectly protecting anti-Pakistan terrorists.

3. The so called Islamist Abdullah Mehsud (who may be linked to the CIA) was used to attack Chinese interests in Pakistan.

Until now CIA drones have never targeted Abdullah or Baitullah Mehsud or any other militia that is committed to attacking Pakistan.

4. The Indian and Afghan intelligence services are aiding terrorism inside Pakistan.




5. In 2002, the US was allowed to set bases in Balochistan, in Pakistan.

The CIA was allowed to recruit Pakistanis in the tribal belt in Pakistan.

These two areas are now the most disturbed parts of Pakistan.

6. The US government is hoping to make it impossible for China 'to pursue trade and energy corridors through Pakistan'.


Simple minded patsies?


And what about Kasab and the Mumbai Attacks?

Is Kasab a poorly educated patsy?

In late 1998, black-clad ninjas murdered hundreds of innocent people in East Java, in Indonesia.

Some of the victims were mentally handicapped youths, easy targets.

(Murder in Java: Psychological warfare and the New York Times)

Bloody decapitated heads were paraded around the streets.

Reportedly, the killings were part of a psychological terror campaign ( like that waged in 1965 by the US-advised Indonesian Army, when at least 500,000 civilians were killed.)

In 1998, as in '65, there was the distribution of death lists to terrify the public, the arrival of assassins in trucks, mutilation of corpses and display of body parts in public places.

Some observers believed that a faction of the US-trained army was fomenting terror to justify a military crackdown.

Army members were arrested by local authorities for the killings, and then mysteriously released.

Pro-democracy activists in Jakarta pointed out that'Ninja' is the term popularly used to designate the Army Special Forces (Kopassus) in disguise.



Are the security services using mentally backward people for false flag operations?

1. Nicky Reilly, who was involved in the nail bomb explosions in Exeter, England, in May 2008, was under surveillance by the Security Services. ( Face of the 'nail bomber': Police were tailing Muslim convert ...) . Was he being used by them?

2. "GENTLE giant Nicky Reilly may have been 'brainwashed' into becoming a would-be suicide bomber... police say.

"The mentally ill 22-year-old was arrested on Thursday after a homemade nail bomb blew up in his face in a busy restaurant. ( Mentally ill man 'brainwashed' into suicide bomb bid, police say)

"Mr Reilly’s stepfather, Philip Dinner, is a convicted heroin dealer and his younger brother, Luke, 20, is serving a six-year prison sentence for kicking a man unconscious in a violent robbery." (Neighbours tell of Nicky Reilly’s troubled past )

"One neighbour, Daniel Turner, 20, said... 'He is mentally ill and probably has the mental age of a 10 year old'...

"The chairman of the local Islamic Centre, Syed Rahman, said Mr Reilly may have prayed at the mosque but denied any knowledge of him. 'Certainly no one who attends our mosque has anything to do with extremism,' he said. 'This guy may have come to us, but we do not know him and we do not recognise him.'" (Exeter bombing suspect was 'brainwashed', friends insist)



3. As mentioned above, it has been alleged that the American trained Indonesian military used mentally backward youths in their terror plots.

In 1998, elements of the Indonesian military wanted to topple Indonesia's President Wahid.

Allegedly, in East Java, members of the military dressed up as Ninjas.

Allegedly the military then dumped mental patients in villages.

When the village vigilantes arrived, they thought the mentally backward youths were Ninjas and chopped their heads off.

Indonesia was destabilised.

There is a suspicion that the security services recruit their patsies from among the weakest members in society: people with mental problems, people who are petty criminals, people who can be easily brainwashed. (aangirfan: TERROR IN INDONESIA : THE CIA CONNECTION
http://www.fair.org/extra/9901/java.html )


4. The mentally disturbed Marinus Van der Lubbe was accused by the Nazis of causing the Reichstag Fire. Many believe that he was manipulated by the Gestapo.

Historians Bahar and Kugel used evidence from Gestapo archives to argue that the fire was almost certainly started by the Nazis. They say that a commando group of at least three, and at most ten SA men led by Hans Georg Gewehr set the fire using self-lighting incendiaries, and that Van der Lubbe was brought to the scene later.[13]

5. 'Retarded Prisoner Was Informant For London Terror Raid', according to the London Mirror, June 18 2006

(http://www.propagandamatrix.com/articles/june2006/180606Retarded.htm )

A MAN with an IQ of just 69 is believed to be the trigger behind the bungled terror raid in Forest Gate, East London.

Ex-waiter Mohammed Abu Bakr Mansha, 22, was a childhood pal of the innocent two brothers arrested in the dawn swoop by police two weeks ago.

In January he was jailed for six years for terror offences - and even described in court as an "utter incompetent". Soon afterwards, friends of brothers Abul Kahar, 23, and Abul Koyair, 20, visited him at top-security Belmarsh prison, in South-East London.

And, the Sunday Mirror has learned, that meeting sparked a surveillance operation on the men by the security services. According to a friend of the brothers, they laughed at constantly being followed. Our source said: "It was so obvious we treated it as a joke."

Then new information came through, said to include detailed drawings of a suicide vest.

That led to Operation Volga - the botched police operation to arrest the brothers, which led to Kahar being shot. After seven days in custody they were released without charge amid claims of incompetence and brutality.

Friends of the men believe dim Mansha was the trigger for the extraordinary operation.


Mansha's lawyer Sara O'Keefe revealed how her client was moved just before the raid from category 'A' Belmarsh to a softer category 'B' jail. She did not know why he got the favourable treatment, or whether he unwittingly helped MI5. Told that the brothers knew they were being followed she said: "That sounds about right."

Mansha - serving six years for possessing an old address of a British Army war hero, which police suspected was part of a terror plot - is appealing against his sentence. His trial revealed him to be educationally subnormal with an IQ of 69 - compared to the average of 100.


In the US that would make his court evidence unreliable.

If Mansha is confirmed as the trigger for the raid, it will be hugely humiliating for the security services in their battle against terror.

Police and intelligence officials claim the information was from a reliable single source who knew the brothers and whom the security services had dealt with before.

But our probe suggests that if Mansha was at the centre of the investigation, the intelligence is highly suspect and deeply embarrassing for MI5. Vajahat Sharif, lawyer for one brother, slammed the "scattergun" approach, saying it would lead to police targeting more innocent people. He said: "Where does this stop? What about Mansha's friends, family or neighbours? They know him, so presumably they're terrorists."

A friend of the brothers said they'd grown up with Mansha. He said: "We used to play in the street. Abu was strange. He'd suddenly lose it. Once while playing street football, he got upset as no one passed to him. He took out a gun and went pop, pop, pop."

He added: "Once I saw him pee in the eye of a man lying on the floor, for fun. I've seen him do all sorts, bad things, because he's a nutter - but he's no al-Qaeda bomber. He needs help, not banging up. A few guys visited him in jail. I didn't go as I didn't like him, but suddenly Kahar and Koyair were being followed. It was so obvious we all treated it like a joke. Maybe if I'd gone too they'd have raided my house and shot me. It's a f***ing outrage."

On June 2 at 4am 250 officers, including forensic and chemicals experts, waited at the terraced home of their parents Abul Kalam and Alif Jan. Bursting through a window, 50 cops met Kahar and Koyair on the stairs. Kahar was shot in the shoulder. They were held for seven days as police dug the garden and drilled holes into walls seeking a chemical device.

A week later police issued a grudging apology, outraging locals. The brothers are suing for distress, wrongful imprisonment and damage to their house. But a pal said: "They don't blame Abu, he's an old friend. But he's capable of saying and doing anything. If he did say anything it would be madness if the police took him seriously."

Nasser of the CIA

Miles Copeland of the CIA

According to Stewart Copeland, the CIA's Miles Copeland helped Egypt's Nasser to organize a secret service.

Miles Copeland's office was next door to Nasser's and they became very close friends.

(.Stewart copeland Inside Out - Kollected Works.)

Reportedly, Nasser was put into power in Egypt by the CIA.

(the CIA operative,Gamal Abdel Nasser...s)

FAROUK

Reportedly, Britain's friend King Farouk was chucked out by the CIA in 1952.


Kermit Roosevelt of the CIA

Reportedly, Kim Roosevelt, who was head of CIA operations in the Middle East, had a series of meetings with Nasser before the coup.

Nasser appeared to be anti-American.

However, reportedly, it was the CIA that helped Nasser with his anti-American propaganda.

(LOL. Think of Iran's leaders, who were reportedly put into power by the CIA.)

Reportedly, the CIA sent Paul Linebarger to Egypt to organise Radio Cairo's anti-American propaganda.

Reportedly, Linebarger helped devise news stories and editorials which appeared to be pro-Soviet but which in fact made the Soviets look stupid.

US Secretary of State Dulles, and the CIA, reportedly, were fans of Nasser.

'CIA agent' Nasser


What about the US withdrawal of a loan to finance the Aswan Dam?

This led to Nasser nationalising the Suez Canal Company and led to Anglo-French-Israeli forces attacking Egypt.

This led to Eisenhower supporting Nasser, and a defeat for Britain.

Allegedly, CIA agent Nasser undermined Britain's position in the region, thus making the USA more influential. (the CIA operative,Gamal Abdel Nasser..s)

(Reportedly, MI6 had little clue about what was going on.)

What about the Muslim Brotherhood, which is supposed to be a CIA front, and which was in opposition to Nasser?

The Muslim Brotherhood was used to keep Nasser from becoming too independent minded.

Reportedly, by 1954, Nasser's nationalism had upset both the USA and the UK.






"According to CIA agent Miles Copeland... the CIA began to cooperate with the Muslim Brotherhood...

"In June of 1955, MI6 was already approaching the Brotherhood in Syria to agitate against the new government that showed strong left-wing tendencies and a desire to merge with Egypt.

"The Brotherhood became an even more important asset after Nasser announced the Egyptian takeover of the Suez Canal...

"Israel began to fund the Muslim Brotherhood..." (Source: http://www.redmoonrising.com/Ikhwan/BritIslam.htm)

At historycommons.org (Gamal Abddul Nasser) we read that :

MI6 and the CIA jointly hatched plans to assassinate Nasser.

"According to Miles Copeland, a CIA operative based in Egypt, the opposition to Nasser is driven by the commercial community—the oil companies and the banks.

"At the same time, the Muslim Brotherhood’s resentment of Nasser’s secular government also comes to a head.

"In one incident, Islamist militants attack pro-Nasser students at Cairo University. Following an attempt on his own life by the Brotherhood, Nasser responds immediately by outlawing the group, which he denounces as a tool of Britain.

"The following years see a long and complex struggle pitting Nasser against the Muslim Brotherhood, the US, and Britain.

"The CIA funnels support to the Muslim Brotherhood because of “the Brotherhood’s commendable capability to overthrow Nasser.” [Baer, 2003, pp. 99; Dreyfuss, 2005, pp. 101-108]

"The Islamist regime in Saudi Arabia becomes an ally of the United States in the conflict with Nasser. They offer financial backing and sanctuary to Muslim Brotherhood militants during Nasser’s crackdown. Nasser dies of natural causes in 1970. [Dreyfuss, 2005, pp. 90-91, 126-131, 150]"

DOES THE USA CONTROL THE TOP PEOPLE IN PAKISTAN?

In August 2008, Pakistan spy chief Pasha, on the right, meets Admiral Mullen, on the left. Reportedly, Pasha is closely allied to General Kayani and the CIA. Reportedly, he holds anti-Taliban views. [7][5] Pakistan military boss Kayani appears next to Pasha.

According to a report by Stratfor, in early April 2009, Pakistan's spy chief, Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha, refused to meet Admiral Mullen and Richard Holbrooke, when they recently visited Islamabad. - ISI chief Pasha snubs Holbrooke and Mullen / Holbrooke's trip exposes standoff between US, Pakistan

However, State Department spokesman Robert Wood told reporters that Special Envoy Richard Holbrooke and American military commander Admiral Mike Mullen did have a meeting with ISI Chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha. Holbrooke and Mullen met ISI chief Pasha: US :: Samay Live

Apparently, Pasha did not meet Holbrooke alone; but he did meet Holbrooke.

In other words, Pasha wants to give the appearance of not being a Washington puppet.

AHMED QURAISHI, on 8 April 2009, at ahmedquraishi.com/ wrote an article entitled: Pakistan To America: Back Off

Among the points made:

1. Reportedly, elements of the Pakistan government, have recently become less trusting of the USA. (Holbrooke's trip exposes standoff between US, Pakistan)

Reportedly, the Pakistan government has stated that it will not allow the United States to expand its war inside Pakistan; it will not allow U.S. soldiers to operate in Pakistan; and it insists that the CIA must stop its drone attacks.

Reportedly a former Pakistani air force chief, Air Chief Marshal (retired) Kaleem Saadat, has announced that the Pakistani Air Force is ready to shoot down the CIA's drones.

pakalert.wordpress.com/.../

2. At a press briefing in Islamabad, Richard Holbrooke, America’s envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, and Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, appeared surprised at the 'straightforward' talk by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

3. In early April 2009, the leader of the main opposition party in Pakistan, Chaudhry Pervez Elahi of PML, told a press conference that his party favored rejecting U.S. aid if the trade off is to give up Pakistan’s national interest.

4. "Pakistani officials are seriously concerned about mounting circumstantial evidence indicating the U.S. is ... using Afghanistan ... as a base for spreading terrorism and mayhem inside ...Pakistan.

"The suspicions are especially centered on evidence that someone in Afghanistan is pumping trained operatives and saboteurs in the garb of Islamic militants inside Pakistan. These operatives and agents then go about spreading death and destruction in the name of ‘Pakistani Taliban’.

"There are also serious questions about why the CIA drones fail to attack shadowy militant leaders inside Pakistani tribal zone whose main mission is to attack and kill Pakistanis.

"In comparison, the Afghan Taliban in Afghanistan focus on fighting the occupation forces and have never advocated attacking Pakistani interests despite Islamabad having ditched them seven years ago."




5. "There is even more evidence that Afghan soil is also being used to spread ethnic and sectarian tensions inside Pakistan and recruit, train and sponsor separatists for this purpose."

In Afghanistan, there is a "huge presence of Indian intelligence ... disguised as diplomats and social workers."

6. Pakistan's "former Chief of Army Staff Gen. Mirza Aslam Baig wrote a paper as far back as 2007 that listed locations inside Afghanistan where U.S. or some of its allies have established intelligence outposts focused on penetrating four nations that share borders with or are close to Afghanistan. These four nations are Russia, China, Iran and Pakistan."

7. In November 2007, commentator Ahmed Quraishi "authored a report that said that the next logical step for the severe destabilization seen in Pakistan that year would be a high-value assassination of either President Musharraf or Benazir Bhutto, the two key leaders in Pakistan at the time, which would spin Pakistan out of control."

8. "There have been reports for some time now that certain departments within the U.S. government have been conducting ‘private foreign policies’ directly with the families that control Pakistani political parties. Some of the leaders of these families were invited to secret visits to Washington as part of this confidential dialogue."

9. "Holbrooke, would come to Pakistan "to meet the Pakistani President, Prime Minister, Army chief, ISI chief, and whoever else mattered, and all of them separately, and then play one party against the other, a sort of an improvement on the old British method of divide and rule.

"Another sign of manipulation is the Zardari-Nawaz rivalry."

Saddam and his generals reportedly worked for the CIA. Image from: dailymail./Son-Saddam-Husseins-general-living-Britain.l

Will the Pakistan military protect Pakistan, or are the key players working for the CIA?

Mostaque Ali (So Whats the next step for Pakistan? ) writes:

"The Drones are being fired from Pakistani military bases and thus requires the permission and cooperation of the Pakistani military first and foremost.

"The Pakistani military are fighting side by side in terms of policy with the Americans in FATA attacking Pakistani civilians in FATA.

"The civilian leadership don't have a say in this..."

Mostaque Ali (So Whats the next step for Pakistan? ) continues:

"Do remember that the head of the Iraqi Mukabarat under Saddam was working for America, in 2003, as were most of Saddam's generals.

"This is why the Iraqi military of 400,000, one of the best in the world no doubt stood down when the Americans came to 'liberate' their country...

"Now what if the Pakistan military stand down in the face of an American invasion?

"10 meetings between Mullen and Kiyani in just over a year...

"How can you be sure that the Pakistani military top brass, trained in the USA mainly, is totally loyal to Pakistan? Present indications are not encouraging..."

Pakistan's president "Zardari is using his public position to make business deals to enrich himself and thus visit various countries, and thats about it..."

Zardari has spent time in jail.

Formerly, "Zardari after being released went to live in Jew York in 2004.

"Benazir also spent an inordinate amount of time in the USA in the late 1990's and there after, giving speeches to the CFR etc.

"Sharif mainly shuttled between the Gulf and Saudi Arabia which is a country that has significant influence in Pakistan, but not overt like the Americans the Saudis don't operate that way, and of course LONDON, no less influential in Pakistani politics. And of course Sharifs visit to the American embassy more recently."

So Whats the next step for Pakistan?

VIETNAM AND SEX AND WAR

Ho Chi Minh

Vietnam is one of just four Asian countries expected to expand in 2009, along with China, India and Indonesia. (Vietnam 2009 growth seen at 4.75 percent: IMF )

But, reportedly, Vietnam has its problems in regards to the treatment of women and children.

In 2004, a Taiwanese man tried to sell three Vietnamese women on eBay.

There was a starting bid of $5,400. (Vietnam's global human trafficking an inhuman epidemic)



Glitter

On August 19th 2008 Vietnam expelled Gary Glitter after he had served almost three years in prison for indecency with two girls aged 11.


Reportedly, Vietnamese women and children are trafficked abroad to the USA, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Taiwan, and the Czech Republic, for commercial sexual exploitation. (Vietnam's global human trafficking an inhuman epidemic)

In 2008 it was reported that: "Approximately 130 women were held prisoner, some in dog cages, at a Ho Chi Minh City brothel.

"The women were forced to work as prostitutes 18 hours per day, local media reports say.

"The Thanh Nien newspaper said police found the women after launching a raid triggered by letters from the captive women, but the brothel owner got away.

"The Vietnamese newspaper said the women, many of whom were from poor rural families, were kept as slaves in debt bondage and if they refused to perform sexual acts on customers they were severely punished by the owner, known as Tri, and his men."

- China Confidential: Vietnamese Sex Slaves Kept in Dog Cages



There have been allegations about Ho Chi Minh's sex life. The allegations, by critics of Ho, may or may not be true.

A quote from 'HO CHI MINH'S TRUE COLORS' by Nguyen Minh Can (The Ky 21 Monthly Magazine):

"There is a young girl from the Nung ethnic group in Cao Bang, called Nong Thi Xuan.

"She was brought in to 'serve' Uncle Ho.

"She brought her younger sister Nong Thi Vang and a female cousin with her to Hanoi. Later she had a boy child with Uncle Ho. The boy was named Nguyen Tat Trung. There was also a rumor that she had with him another girl child named Nguyen Thi Trinh.

"Then Mr. Tran Quoc Hoan (Minister of Public Security) raped her at the house in Hang Bong Nhuom, murdered her and covered the crime by fabricating an auto accident on Nhat Tan. After the older sister was killed, the younger sister ran back to Cao Bang and was also be murdered to get rid of the clues. Her cousin could not escape his bloody hands either. Vang's fiancé already wrote a letter to inform against the culprit." - STARTLING DISCLOSURES OF HO CHI MINH'S TRUE COLORS

VIETNAM - What actually happened

http://www.antiwar.com/orig/pilger.php?articleid=4871

John Pilger, in an article entitled 'First, They Attack the Past' writes:

The final declaration of the Geneva conference divided Vietnam "temporarily" until free national elections were held on July 26, 1956.

There was little doubt that Ho Chi Minh would win and form Vietnam's first democratically elected government.

Certainly, President Eisenhower was in no doubt of this. "I have never talked with a person knowledgeable in Indochinese affairs," he wrote, "who did not agree that ... 80 percent of the population would have voted for the communist Ho Chi Minh as their leader."

Not only did the United States refuse to allow the UN to administer the agreed elections two years later, but the "democratic" regime in the south was an invention.



One of the inventors, the CIA official Ralph McGhee, describes in his masterly book Deadly Deceits how a brutal expatriate mandarin, Ngo Dinh Diem, was imported from New Jersey to be "president" and a fake government was put in place. "The CIA," he wrote, "was ordered to sustain that illusion through propaganda [placed in the media]."

Phony elections were arranged, hailed in the West as "free and fair," with American officials fabricating "an 83 percent turnout despite Vietcong terror."


"The terrorists," whom the Americans called the Vietcong, were ... southern Vietnamese defending their homeland against the American invasion and whose resistance was popular. For Vietnam, read Iraq.

And, reportedly, "The day General McArthur signed the peace treaty with Japan half the weapons stored on Okinawa were shipped to Ho Chi Minh and General Giap who met these shipments at the docks of Hai Phong harbor with Lucien Conein, the CIA case officer for Diem."

THE USA AND THE EU

EU Forces


At voltairenet.org , Rick Rozoff, an investigative journalist specialising in NATO affairs, has an article entitled: EU, NATO, US: 21st Century Alliance For Global Domination

Among the points made:

1. The EU and USA are in bed together, with the USA being the dominant partner.

2. The NATO-EU-US military alliance has imperial ambitions and aims to encircle Russia.

3. Three years ago, NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said:

"NATO and the EU are making rather good progress in coordinating the development of modern military capabilities. I am optimistic that we can extend our cooperation to additional area ... such as the Caucasus and Central Asia."(NATO International, March 31, 2005)

4. In 2009, Giampaolo Di Paola, Chairman of NATO’s Military Committee, spoke of the "need for a new form of world governance in which NATO, the EU, and other major international organisations have a part to play." (ADN Kronos International [Italy], February 13, 2009)

5. The main EU and European NATO states are the former colonial powers - Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Italy and Germany.



Imperialism 1800

6. British troops are back in Afghanistan, Iraq and Sierra Leone; French ones in Haiti and Cote d’Ivoire; American armed forces are back in the Philippines.

All 26 NATO states have military personnel in Iraq.

7. In 2005, the EU’s Javier Solana, former NATO Secretary General, spoke about the EU’s expanding military buildup.

He said that "by becoming a stronger and more capable international actor, we will be a better partner for the United States."

He spoke of the Balkans as the original testing ground for this triumvirate, “Through our concerted efforts, with the United States and NATO...."(Defense News, November 10, 2005)

8. In 2008, the EU’s presidency was held by France and Nicholas Sarkozy 'was the prime mover in pushing for the EU-NATO-US axis at the Bucharest summit'.

Bush’s speech at the summit pointed out that "NATO is no longer a static alliance....It is now an expeditionary alliance that is sending its forces across the world...." (USA Today, April 1, 2008)

9. After the summit, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned, "This is....an attempt to form some new global union with a Western core wishing to claim all but UN functions." (Interfax, April 17, 2008)

10. The EU is training security personnel in Afghanistan.

11. In December 2009, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner confirmed the EU’s role in supplementing US and NATO arms and military involvement in the South Caucasus.

12. The EU is becoming integrated with NATO.

"The US is ... the central foundation, of NATO."

Thus, the EU is "in effect subordinated to Washington."
