He predicted what later has become reality - Russia clearly staged the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, the KGB financed all so called dissidents that run the Eastern European governments, Golitsyn has analized the strategic communist plan in detail and yet our government is not listening and our so called media is not paying attention to this threat from Russia and China.
Communist World Domination will become horrible reality if we will not reasses Russia's military strength and the real intentions KGB lieutenant colonel Vladimir Putin and his communist Politburo have for America - destruction of her and instalation of the communist World Order around the Globe.
Golitsyn clearly states in this briliant analysis that the deceptive means of false friendship Russia is playing today
will only result in catastrofic consequences for America if America doesn't protect herself.
The means of communist infiltration and systematic subversion
of the West are clearly shown in detail by Mr. Golitsyn
and that's why he's still under direct death threat from Moscow
and he has to hide in the U.K.
Russia's connection to Islamic terrorism has been also proven
and Golitsyn mentioned Saddam's regime constant co-operation with Moscow.
Will America wake up ?
Only God knows that.
"Western acceptance of the changes in the USSR and Eastern Europe [under the `Long-Range Policy', a more subtle strategy to neutralize the West, as signed onto by all Communist nations in 1960] as a trend towards genuine democracy which serves Western interests and therefore merits Western support show how little the West comprehends the essence of the changes and the dangers they entail. In part this non-comprehension arises from confusion over terminology. What the West calls `democratisation', Soviet strategists call the transformation of the `dictatorship of the proletariat' into the `state of the whole people'."
Knowledgeable of limited Soviet strategic planning and operations (intelligence agencies don't tell their intelligence officers everything), KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitisyn presents us with only half of the story, the complete story now clearly apparent thanks to the following observations by this researcher...Read more ›
There is much ado about Golitsyn's "predictions" everywhere, on the web, in print and in media. This leads one to believe that there is chance involved in a sort of political prognostication; however, this is not the case, and he clearly states this, time and time again, in both "New Lies for Old" and "The Perestroika Deception."
Golitsyn's analysis of Russian activity is based upon a new analytical paradigm. This paradigm grew as a result to changes in policy which were designed to give false results to Western analysts stuck in the now outdated dogma.
Glasnost and perestroika were designed, according to Golitsyn, as politic tools to perform a sort of prestidigitation to lull and bedazzle Soviet opponents, while the true intentions and actions happened in the background.
History has proven Golitsyn's analysis to be extremely accurate. However, there seems to be a concerted effort to completely ignore his strategic analytical model, much like it happened in the 1980's and 1990's. This, to me, indicates that his model for interpreting data is reliable and bears consideration. It is through this model that he made "predictions," all which have either come to pass or will in the future (if his prediction rate is anything by which to judge the rest). For those that would like to understand seemingly esoteric or difficult to understand political moves, Golitsyn's work might help to shed light on the subject.
