Russian Ambassador to the EU Chizhov Hits Western War Plans, Then and Now
May 13, 2020 (EIRNS)—The Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov wrote an op-ed titled “The Choice Is Always Yours” on May 8, the day before V-E Day, in EUobserver. The commentary identifies three war-plans against the Soviet Union which were issued after the death of Franklin Roosevelt by the British, by Harry Truman, and by CIA chief Allen Dulles.
Chizhov first denounces the massive campaign in Europe to falsify the history of World War II, blaming the Soviet Union and Germany equally for starting the war. He reminds the readers that President Vladimir Putin will soon open a “Center of Archive Documentation,” in English, French and German, to expose the lies and put the truth in plain sight.
He says that the commonplace claim that Winston Churchill launched the Cold War in his Fulton, Missouri “Iron Curtain” speech ignores crucial facts:
“It was preceded by Operation Unthinkable elaborated by the U.K. back in 1945 which envisaged plans of a war to be waged by the U.S. and Great Britain against the U.S.S.R., and American Plan Totality developed on the personal order of Harry Truman after the atomic bombings of the Japanese Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, which was to carry out nuclear attacks against 17 major Soviet cities and industrial centers. They were followed by CIA chief Allen Dulles’ plan aimed at destroying the U.S.S.R. by means of propaganda, sowing mistrust among nationalities and social groups, and corrupting moral values of the population.”
It would have been more insightful if Chizhov had also included the report that the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff had rejected both Churchill and Truman’s war plans.
The Allen Dulles “color revolution” plans, as they are now known, included the Congress for Cultural Freedom (CCF), although Chizhov doesn’t mention it. The CCF was identified by Lyndon LaRouche as an anti-communist operation set up and run clandestinely by the CIA, which did more to destroy Classical culture in the West than any damage done to Russia.
Chizhov then observes that the Churchill Cold War program, to confront “totalitarian and authoritarian regimes” and defend the achievements of “Western democracy,” are still being used today, as was learned by those nations that were the subjects of such good will: “Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria and Libya, who were actively encouraged to acquire the notorious values with the help of NATO air attacks.”
He goes on to stay that on the eve of World War II, Europe “had been busy appeasing the aggressor and diligently retargeting Hitler’s war machine against the U.S.S.R.” Then, in the early 1990s, with the fall of the Soviet Union,
“the collective West missed its historic chance to establish a transparent system of equal and indivisible security in Europe and undermined the key asset—trust, that just started to reappear after long years of the Cold War. Quite the opposite, notions continued to be actively substituted. A rules-based world order was invented to replace international law.”
He concludes with a call for the European Union to end the self-defeating sanctions regime, and establishing “its own security guarantees based on trust,” apparently blaming the U.S., and not the British Empire, for the crisis.
