Blame the Anti-Russia Brouhaha on the Central Intelligence Agency and The Pentagon by Jacob G. Hornberger

Have you noticed that according to the Pentagon, the Central Intrlligence Agency, and the United States mainstream press (whose newspapers oftentimes appear to be wholly owned subsidiaries of the national-security establishment), it is always Russia that is "assertive" and "aggressive" while the United States, whose regime invades and occupies countries, assassinates people, partners with brutal dictatorial regimes, and initiates coups, is portrayed as the passive, peaceful, victimized regime?

Consider NATO. The United States regime breaks its promise to Russia to dismantle NATO at the end of the Cold War, begins absorbing Eastern Bloc countries as members, moves United States forces ever close to Russias borders, promotes a pro-United States regime-change coup within Ukraine, and then attempts to make Ukraine a NATO member.

Not a peep from the mainstream press about the United States regimes being "assertive" or "aggressive." Yet, when Russia responds to NATOs "passive" and "peace-loving" actions by taking control over Crimea or moving troops into Belarus, the United States mainstream press goes bananas, exclaiming that Russia is being "assertive" and "aggressive."

When the United States government seizes Russias properties in the United States and orders a reduction in the size of the Russian diplomatic staff, there is not a peep in the mainstream press about the United States regime being "assertive" or "aggressive." But when Russia responds by doing the same thing over there, the United States mainstream press goes bonkers over Russias "assertiveness" and "aggressiveness."

There is really nothing new about the United States national-security establishments anti-Russia crusade.

The crusade goes back to when the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency were called into existence and even before. The only difference is that back then the crusade was against godless Russian (or Soviet) communism while today it is just against Russia itself.

Recall the Cuban Missile Crisis, which occurred in 1962. Is every American schoolchild not taught that it was the Russians (or the Soviets) that caused that crisis?

Does the United States mainstream press not always refer to the "offensive" missiles that the Russians installed in Cuba? Do they not love to say that the Russians "blinked" and that the United States prevailed in the crisis?

Take a look at this PDF document (above-right), which leads to a top-secret Central Intelligence Agency memo dated October 16, 1962. It was released last week as part of the National Archives release of John F. Kennedy-related documents, pursuant to the JFK Records Act of 1992. Keep in mind that the Central Intelligence Agency did not want people to see this document in 1962 or even the 1990s and beyond.

Why would they want to keep this document secret from the American people? Because it obviously does not fit well with the official portrayal of the United States regime as passive, submissive, and peace-loving.

In the document, the Central Intelligence Agency calls for demolition of a railroad bridge, shipping and port facilities, and a power plant in Cuba, the mining of various Cuban harbors, a hit-and-run attack on a Soviet missile site, incendiary sabotage of wooden cooling towers, wooden docks, and a sulphur stockpile, and a gunfire attack on an oil tanker in the Havana or Matanzas harbor.

I would be remiss if I also failed to mention that the document reveals that the Central Intelligenve Agency was also calling for a grenade attack on the Chinese embassy in Havana, which, of course, is considered sovereign soil of China and, therefore, an act of war against China.

There is something important to note about all of these actions: None of them were ever committed by Cuba against the United States. Cuba never initiated any act of sabotage or terrorism against the United States, and it never tried to mine United States harbors. It also never imposed an economic embargo on the United States. It was always the United States regime that was the aggressor against Cuba.

The United States regimes "passivity" does not stop there.

What Central Intelligence Agency officials also kept secret from the American people, as well as from Congress, for many years is that they entered into a secret partnership with the Mafia, one of the worlds most famous criminal enterprises, to assassinate Cubas leader Fidel Castro, whose regime had never attacked the United States or tried to assassinate any United States officials.

Pray tell: Which is the assertive and aggressive regime and which is the passive one?

That is not all. From the very start of the Kennedy administration and even before, the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency were proposing or planning a violent regime-change operation in Cuba. That is what the Bay of Pigs invasion, Operation Northwoods, and the assassination attempts against Castro were all about.

In fact, the reason that Castro wanted those Russian nuclear missiles installed in Cuba was simply to deter another United States invasion of Cuba or to defend against such an invasion if it came. Those Russian missiles were never offensive in nature but instead entirely defensive. This was confirmed when the deal to resolve the crisis was struck: In return for Kennedys vow not to invade Cuba, the Russians withdrew their missiles.

But like todays anti-Russia brouhaha, every American schoolchild was taught that it was the Russians who were "assertive" and "aggressive," not the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency, who were - and are - portrayed as the passive and peace-loving ones.

The truth, unfortunately, is that it was the United States national-security establishment - i.e., the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency - that was at the root of the Cuban Missile Crisis, just as they are at the root of the anti-Russia crisis today.
