On the 27th of June, Georgia is expected to sign an association agreement with the European Union (EU) which would initiate the process of the nation being fully integrated into the EU and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in the coming years. Georgia will be added to the list of ex-Soviet countries that have forged closer ties with the EU and NATO since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, as part of the wider EU-US-NATO strategy of expanding eastward to encircle Russia. Last week British Foreign Secretary William Hague endorsed Georgia’s proposal to join the EU and NATO during a visit to Tbilisi, which would put a NATO state directly on Russia’s South-western border.
In the future, Ukraine will be absorbed into the EU and NATO following the successful staged revolution devised by the western elite that has placed the Ukrainian people under banker occupation – aside from a few regions in the South East of the country who have declared autonomy or joined Russia. Earlier this month Ukraine received the first $3.2 billion instalment of the $17 billion IMF aid package which was agreed after the puppet regime in Kiev turned to their masters in the West for financial aid – with strings attacked of course – as opposed to looking to Russia for assistance (as the previous regime did).
The European Commission has also announced it will provide Ukraine with approximately 11 billion Euros in addition to the funds provided by the IMF. If any more evidence is needed to support the fact that western powers have been influential in the Ukrainian coup, the son of US Vice President Joe Biden has just recently joined the board of Ukraine’s largest private gas producer, Burisma Holdings, only months after the US led coup in Kiev.
November 2003 marked the start of the Rose Revolution in Georgia, which was a Western sponsored colour revolution funded by George Soros’s Open Society Foundation that organised protestors to take to the streets to oust the pro-Russian President Eduard Shevardnadze. The protestors were led by the US puppet Mikhail Saakashvili who was elected President in January after the corrupt Shevardnadze resigned following the covert coup.
The revolution in Georgia resulted in the country being pulled into the European sphere of influence and the building of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, which takes oil from the resource rich Caspian Sea and brings it to Turkey’s Mediterranean port in Ceyhan. Zbigniew Brzezinski was the chief negotiator for British Petroleum (BP), the main operator and owner of the pipeline. He travelled to Baku, Azerbaijan, in 1995 to initiate talks between the US and the government of Azerbaijan over the pipeline.
A year after the Rose Revolution in Georgia, a second colour revolution began in Ukraine when demonstrators took to the streets in what became known as the Orange Revolution. This saw the pro-Russian government in Ukraine deposed and replaced by the Western leaning government of President Viktor Yushchenko. However, after the initial promises of change following the revolution in 2004 the Ukrainian people began to get disgruntled by the continuation of mass corruption, and in 2010 elected Viktor Yanukovych as President. The new leader’s close relationship with Russia resulted in the second Orange Revolution in 2014 being orchestrated to overthrow Yanukovych and establish a US puppet regime in Kiev, with the former Georgian President and US puppet Saakashvili even publicly supporting the fake Euromaidan movement.
Colour revolutions are based upon a fusion of the Rand Corporations “swarming” technique invented in the 1960’s and Professor Gene Sharp’s guide to nonviolent struggle in the 1990’s. Non Governmental Organisations act as an extension of western intelligence agencies to create revolutionary movements in countries that oppose Anglo-American hegemony through the use of social networks and text messaging, resulting in regimes that are friendly to western interests being installed. The 2000 coup in Serbia along with the Rose Revolution in Georgia and the Orange Revolution in Ukraine are some of the most notorious coups where this technique has been used.
21st century imperialism is conducted in a far more subtle and surreptitious manner than in previous centuries. Colour revolutions coupled with financial aid packages are a more potent and effective colonial tactic than war and military intervention. Regimes who are opposed to western commercial and strategic interests are overthrown by the imperious elite who install compliant stooges to serve their interests.
