Gorbachev: “It all looks as if the world is preparing for war,”

The last time former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev made American news, he sounded upbeat.

Of the incoming US president Donald Trump, he told the Associated Press in December: “He has little political experience, but, maybe it’s good.”

Of his successor, the autocratic Vladimir Putin, Gorbachev said: “He is a strong person.

“Together, they could lead the world [to peace],” he told the reporter, and sang a song after the interview.

Putin and Trump have both since called for stronger nuclear weapons in their countries.

Now Gorbachev, 85, is back in the news – this time warning of possible global war.

“The world today is overwhelmed with problems,” he wrote in the first line of an essay in Time magazine. “Policymakers seem to be confused and at a loss.”

He listed some problems: “the militarisation of politics and the new arms race”, bellicose world leaders and a media that echoes them. Tanks and weapons in Europe “placed closer to each other, as if to shoot point-blank”.

“It all looks as if the world is preparing for war,” Gorbachev wrote.

His tone had darkened since his song in December – if not since the Soviet Union dissolved beneath his feet a quarter century ago.

But Gorbachev’s advice for the world was much the same: do as he and former US president Ronald Reagan, whose co-operation and mutual disarmament may well have averted World War III, did.

Gorbachev’s essay summarises the lurching end of the Cold War in a few brief lines: “In the second half of the 1980s, together with the US, we launched a process of reducing nuclear weapons and lowering the nuclear threat.”

The reality wasn’t so neat, though it seemed impossibly rapid to a world that had spent a century under the cloud of global war.

Gorbachev took over the Communist Party in 1985, as Reagan was beginning his second term in the White House with pushes for a new nuclear missile and a more robust military.

Many Americans credit Reagan’s hard line on military policy – such as his push for missile defence – with forcing the Soviet Union to reform and eventually collapse.

In his own interviews, Gorbachev has spun history differently.

“Our interests coincided,” he told The Washington Post in 2004, after giving Reagan’s coffin a fond pat at his funeral.

“We both knew what kind of weapons we each had,” he said. “There were mountains of nuclear weapons. A war could start not because of a political decision, but just because of some technical failure.”

Whatever inspired him, Gorbachev is remembered for softening a totalitarian empire – making the Soviet Union more open and liberal while cutting its nuclear stockpiles, as Reagan reciprocated.

The push for world peace was distilled in Reagan’s famous call in 1987 – “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” – followed two years later by the border opening between East and West Germany, and the destruction of the Berlin Wall.

Gorbachev would later complain that the peacemaking got out of hand after his rivals took advantage to oust him in a coup d’etat, which led to his resignation on the same day the Soviet flag fell at the Kremlin.

Now, as he sees signs of peace undone across the world, he is calling on the Kremlin and White House’s new occupants to join forces again and stop it.

“He listed some problems: “the militarisation of politics and the new arms race”, bellicose world leaders and a media that echoes them. Tanks and weapons in Europe “placed closer to each other, as if to shoot point-blank”.

    • Why did the Ukrainian soldiers say there are no Russian soldiers where they were? I know the one lady said, I believe she meant Ukraine, was accusing them of being separatist, but the lady did not know what a separatist is.

      A very personal look into the lives of suffering people.

  2. This is upsetting. The Russians were lied to by the west. They were deceived by the USA and Germany. And it is vile what has happened ever since.

    http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/09/how-america-double-crossed-russia-and-shamed-the-west.html

    That is the precedent we are living with. Those in power won by deceiving the other. And now millions of people are dead… Middle East, Afghanistan, Northern Africa, Libya, Syria, Yemen, etc… and it will go on and on until they are bought into line.

    For anyone that really cares, (unfortunately there are many armchair only experts among us) I encourage you to read the above link, and this one below. Read it all. Every link. Follow them all and pull them to pieces with a critical mind. See if you find any lies. See if there is any truth; and form your own opinions. When you have formed your own opinion, you will probably be very angry with what is happening… especially to Russia. It is worth reading it all… Even you Mister Follow The Money.

    • that was a good read thanks..dont you think gorby was a bit naive? or was he willingly naive?

      • Gorby was naive. He should have known better. But the past is the past. Since the Soviet Union was dissolved (it didn’t collapse as many in the west like to believe – it was voluntarily dissolved by Belarus, Ukraine and Russia as a result of being lied to by the WEST: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissolution_of_the_Soviet_Union ), NATO has waged war after war, attacking every nation that was third world (not undeveloped but UNALIGNED which is where the term Third World comes from) and trying to conqueror what were previously member states of the USSR. Montenegro is current example: Bombed and Balkanised at the end of a gun, and now asking to join NATO for the ‘security guarantee’ that NATO coughs up… which means as much as a wet towel in a downpour (ask Cyprus / Greece which was invaded by Turkey even though are both members of NATO – fat lot of good it did them whilst all the member nations stood around watching Turkey have its way.

        Yes… Unfortunately Gorby was naive. I hope the rest of the world understands that the promises made by NATO are more often than not lies… and that everyone is a target untill NATO is stopped… or dissolved by the lead member states just as the USSR was.

    • Spinifex: “Gorby was naive. He should have known better.” I think he did know better, it may have taken longer to push the NWO agenda forward than he anticipated but he knew the end game, reiterated by Bush in 1991 speach. They always knew World War III was imminent. Gorbachev along with Putin, Bush, Carlyle Group etc. have been well compensated for their work thus far.

      In his address to the U.N. General Assembly, Gorbachev declared: “Life is making us abandon established stereotypes and outdated views, and it is making us discard illusions. . . .

      It would be naive to think that the problems plaguing mankind today can be solved with the means and methods that were applied or seemed to work in the past.”

    • I appreciate where you are coming from and as you requested I read the links you posted. In turn I hope you take the time to peruse over the links I have posted. No doubt it is a con game and the collateral damage is unforgiveable by all parties involved.

      “To conceal his criminal activities, Gorbachev did not even spare his friend with whom he betrayed his homeland. Robert Maxwell , English businessman, like hundreds of other agents of influence, was killed to keep secret the plunder of the wealth of Russia.

      From August to October 1991, Gorbachev’s ordered the KGB to murder almost 2000 key persons related to the plunder of USSR assets. There were 1746 mysterious suicides of the high ranking Soviet officials.

      Gorbachev’s criminal group called “the family” joined Boris Yeltsin’s new group and continued their asset stripping.

      During the eight years of the Yeltsin’s criminal regime, about ten million people died of hunger and deprivation. Countries where gold, diamonds, & other USSR assets and many hundreds of billions of dollars were siphoned were not interested in returning stolen in Russia.

  3. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  4. Clearly the details of the deal made were hidden from we, the people….but no worries, the Trump regime is now positioned to comply with the objectives of the NWO.

    Soviet-style disintegration awaits US: Gorbachev (PressTV, Dec 15, 2012):

    The last head of state of the former Soviet Union, Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, has warned the US of an imminent Soviet-like collapse if Washington persists with its hegemonic policies.

    Speaking at a Thursday conference on the future of the Middle East and the Black Sea region in the Turkish city of Istanbul, Gorbachev noted that disintegration was the atonement that the former Soviet Union made for its mistakes and the same fate awaits the US if Washington continues to repeat similar blunders.

    On 26 December, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the world’s first and largest Communist state, was formally dissolved into fifteen independent republics, marking an end to the Cold War. He said the Soviet Bolsheviks sought to undermine Islamic values while in power, and noted that during the Cold War era, the world powers used religion as a tool and a weapon.

    Gorbachev denounced the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan during the Cold War era as an “unpardonable mistake” and pointed out that the US is now repeating the same mistake.The United States and its allies launched the war on Afghanistan in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but after 11 years, the foreign troops have still not been able to establish security in the country.

    (1) plus (1) equals ?

    NATO will be dismantled, Trump already promised that. So while the light is still on let me add this one up, ok…(1) repeal NATO (2) replace w/NWO

    Sounds to me that the term “stupid Americans” fits us perfectly,

  10. MIKHAIL GORBACHEV IS A CRYPTO JEW WHO LIKE PUTIN ALLEGED TO HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED RUSSIAN ORTHODOX

    Is Mikhail Gorbachev an ethnic Russian? No!

    His real name s Mikhail Garber. His mother is Maria Gopkalo and his grandfather Andrei Moiseevich Gorbachev, both Jews.

    Until the beginning of 20th century most of people in Russian Empire including the Jews had no the last names and the passports. Most of ethnic Russians lived in rural areas and they took the names of their fathers as last names like Ivanov , Andreev a son of Ivan or Andrei.

    Nobody would like to take a last name Gorbachev voluntarily. It means a humpback in Russian. Something is wrong in Gorbachev’s family. Bad last names like Gorbachev, Chertov (devil , RUS), Volkow (wolf, RUS) were given in rural community meetings for a felony , mistrust, bad character and so on. Good people in Russian Empire were granted with the good last names.

    • The following is from the French Connection by Daryll Bradford Smith:

      1) Some call it Marxism — I call it Judaism.” (The American Bulletin, Rabbi S. Wise, May 5, 1935).

      2)“The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that, just as in the Russian revolution the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism, so also in the triumph of fascism will triumph Judaism.”(A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 143-144).

      3): “The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, …whose goal is to create a new world order. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality all over the world.” (The American Hebrew September 10, 1920).

      Karl Marx was a cousin of Nathan Rothschild who allegedly paid him for the Communist
      Manifesto!!
