The Bear Is Back: Russias Middle Eastern Adventures
All warfare is based on deception. Therefore, when capable, feign incapacity; when active, inactivity. When near, make it appear that you are far away; when far away, that you are near. Offer the enemy a bait to lure him; feign disorder and strike him. When he concentrates, prepare against him; where he is strong, avoid him. Anger his general and confuse him. Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance. Keep him under strain and wear him down. When he is united, divide him. Attack where he is unprepared; sally out when he does not expect you. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme skill
Disrupt his alliances
Therefore I say: [If you] know the enemy and know yourself, in a hundred battles you will never be in peril. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, you chances of winning or losing are equal; if ignorant of both your enemy and yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril.
SUN TZU, The Art of War, Oxford University Press Edition (also published in the Soviet Union in 1950, in Germany in 1957; also published by the East German Ministry of Defense and was prescribed for study in the East German military academies; it was published in China in 1957, 1958, and 1959, and Moa was known to be influenced by the book in his conduct of the civil war.

This article makes my brain wrinkle.
Soviet Moles in the CIA, part I and II: The Destruction of Western Intelligence
Nah. It's easy. The Soviet Union has gone into hiding behind a facade of liberalization in order to ambush the Third Reich when it emerges from its facade of surrender.

The Plot To Hijack the CIA: Is nuclear terrorism about to emerge?
I'm sending this article to a few select people and I thank you for the post.
Thanks! Ping away!!!
While I have no illusions about the benign intentions of Russia circa 2005, the world of 1984 has vanished from the face of the earth.
The dissolution of the USSR is a fact, and the reconstitution of such a power by a group of malignant apparatchiks is rendered impossible by the free flow, globally and in real time, of information.
Economically, Russia is a small power. It's entire national GDP, according to George Will, is comparable to LosAngeles County.
While Russia's potential is great, it faces huge demographic issues not the least of which is declining population and pressures from islamic savages along its southern borders.
Russia is courting EU and China, to advance its own interests, as any ordinary nation would; but it will be a decidedly junior partner in either case. By itself, the spectre of the USSR materializing out of the grubby Russian mobocracy is akin to a Grimm's fairytale.
We are expected to believe that the Soviet Union, in a stroke of mad genius, decided that the best way to advance the cause of international Communism was to allow ALL of Eastern Europe to slip the leash, to permit autonomous nations to arise in place of previously Moscow-controlled provinces, and to allow their military to slip into a twilight zone of outdated weapons, unpaid soldiers, grounded aircraft and a navy that is now suitable only for coastal defense at best, and that suddenly there will be nuclear hammers and sickles falling from the sky in a great nuclear Pearl Harbor or some such disaster?
In case nobody was paying attention, America still has the most potent and survivable nuclear deterrent on the planet, in the form of ballistic missile submarines, literally thousands of cruise missiles which can be made nuclear capable if necessary, SAC is still flying and more than up to any mission that gets thrown at them, and on top of that we still have enough ground based ICBMs to incinerate any enemy that decides to lob one or more nukes at us. If we knew there were incoming missiles targeting those ICBMs, the decision would be made to "use 'em so we don't lose 'em".
This Golitsyn material makes good reading, but so too was "The Third World War - August 1985" by General Sir John Hackett. He wrote a fantastic book, but it was FICTION.
Just like this stuff.

Couldnt agree more!
Saved to my hard drive/laptop for later read. My brain can't deal with this today.
