„Will the Oliver Stone interview change any minds? It’s too soon to tell“, notes James George JATRAS, former U.S. diplomat and foreign policy adviser to the Senate GOP leadership, in a recent article and evaluates the feedback of the American media:

„… It remains to be seen whether Oliver Stone’s extended interview with Putin on the Showtime network will have any impact. So far the commentary seems to be divided between descriptions of the substance of the discussion and attacks on Stone for talking with such a bad, bad man: «Speaking after the interview, Stone refuted allegations that he became an unwitting messenger of pro-Putin propaganda or of dishonest information given by the president».

With regard to substance, relatively little attention has been accorded in American media to Putin’s flat accusation that U.S. «special services» have supported terrorists, including in Chechnya. Of course anyone paying attention would know that arming jihadists is a standard part of U.S. policy, going back at least to Afghanistan in the 1980s and repeated in Bosnia, Kosovo, Libya, and today in Syria. Indeed, as early as the 1950s the U.S. had established a very close relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and its terrorist elements as a weapon against Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser and Baathists in Syria and Iraq, who Washington thought were a little too cozy with the Soviet Union and far too socialist and secular for the taste of our pals in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.

There is a real symbiosis between the anti-Russian imperative in American foreign policy and support for radical Islamic elements. It did not end when the Soviet Union and communism collapsed but rather was intensified. This is why Moscow’s constant calls for a common front against terrorism are always rebuffed. Such cooperation doesn’t make any sense for anomenklatura whose number one goal is hostility to Moscow and for whom jihadists are at worst «frienemies» – people who may be troublesome but useful.

We can only imagine how completely different the world would be if the U.S. were to recognize that Russia is a country that in many respects is not that different from the United States or Europe and that we had common interests. But for the U.S. Deep State, that would amount to switching sides in a global conflict, where we see jihadists essentially as «freedom fighters» against a geopolitical adversary. These same clueless «elites» are then puzzled when their carefully nurtured, cuddly, «moderate» jihad terrorists attack us back here at home. …“ — emphasis, m.z. —

Oliver Stone – The Putin Interviews Part I – IV

THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS – PART 4

Hard-hitting, extremely engaging, to be re-examined over and over.

One among scores of money quotes:

„Any talk about our influencing the outcome of the US election is all lies. They are doing it due to a number of reasons. First, they are trying to undermine the legitimacy of President Trump, create conditions that must preclude us from normalizing our relations, and they want to create additional instruments to wage an internal political war. And Russia-US relations in this context are just a mere instrument in the internal political fight in the US.“

Robert PARRY: Oliver Stone Reveals a Vulnerable Putin; consortium news, June 12, 2017

Robert Parry (consortium news) offers his first impressions about Oliver Stone’s „The Putin Interviews“.

„Before we stumble into a nuclear war and end life on the planet, the American people might want to watch Oliver Stone’s four-part series of interviews with Russian President Vladimir Putin on “Showtime.” Stone accomplishes what Western journalists should do but don’t, by penetrating deeply into the personality of this historic figure.“

Podiumsgespräch in Bern

thk. Am 15. September fand in Bern im Hotel Kreuz eine Veranstaltung mit dem Titel «Auswirkungen der Krise in der Ukraine für Europa und der Beitrag der Schweiz für eine friedliche Lösung» statt. Referenten waren der US-Amerikaner und stellvertretende Vorsitzende des American Institute in der Ukraine und ehemaliger politischer Berater der Republikaner, James George Jatras, Ständerat Filippo Lombardi, Präsident des parlamentarischen Freundschaftsverein Schweiz-Ukraine, und Oskar Freysinger, Nationalrat und Walliser Staatsrat. Organisiert und moderiert wurde die Veranstaltung von der Genossenschaft und Redaktion Zeit-Fragen.

James Jatras
James Jatras hob in seinem Vortrag hervor, dass die Krise in der Ukraine von aussen initiiert wurde. Der Einfluss der USA und der EU-Staaten, die Jatras als «Vasallen der Weltmacht» bezeichnete, haben entscheidend zur Eskalation der Lage in der Ukraine beigetragen. Als ein Beispiel nannte er Victoria Nuland, die stellvertretende Aussenministerin, die eine aktive Rolle beim Staatsstreich im Februar gespielt hat. Die Demonstrationen auf dem Maidan hatten eine Eskalationsstufe erreicht, in der die Polizei massiv und am Ende sogar mit Schusswaffen angegriffen wurde. Wäre die Polizei in den USA so attackiert worden, hätten die Sicherheitskräfte sofort auf die Demonstranten geschossen. Die amerikanische Aussenpolitik, die nach Jatras seit Jahrzehnten von der gleichen kleinen ­politischen Clique bestimmt wird, verfolgt einen Regime-Change in Damaskus, in Teheran und letztlich in Moskau. Die Krise in der Ukraine ist nur unter diesem Gesichtspunkt zu verstehen. Der Politik Russlands bringt Jatras sehr viel Verständnis entgegen. Die ständige Ausdehnung der EU und der Nato Richtung Russland muss Putin als eine Bedrohung wahrnehmen.
