Alexandre Latsa. Gaddafi and France


Alexandre Latsa in Dissonance. 

Мифы о России. От Грозного до Путина. Мы глазами иностранцев

Александр Латса, француз, осознанно (!) предпочел жить и работать в России. Он написал удивительную и очень русскую книгу о нашей стране. Своеобразный угол зрения на наш быт, привычки, историю и мысли позволяет по-другому взглянуть на нас самих. Пора перестать заниматься столь любимым самобичеванием и уничижением. Поверьте, после этой смешной, острой и мудрой книги, вы поймете, что жить можно только здесь! Хотя бы не скучно. Кроме того, в книге вы найдете знаменитые мифы о России Александра Латса, растиражированные СМИ и получившие огромный резонанс в Интернете.


Alexander Latsa. French war on Libya

So the job is finally done, Libya is now a free country.  The tyrant who oppressed his people, who were seeking democracy and freedom, has been neutralized. The Libyans are now free and will soon have the right to choose between Coca-cola and Pepsi, Mercedes and Audi, or between McDonalds and Burger King. Basically, what they were looking for like any other people on the planet. At least this is the same story we have been told a decade ago during the war on Afghanistan. As in 1999 in Serbia, in 2001 in Afghanistan or in 2004 in Iraq, the Western military intervention was in defiance of all rules of law, justice and morality. The western crusade was once again non-religious but clearly ideological and geopolitical and its goal is clear: the destruction of all the states which are either non-aligned or do not meet western standards, especially those found guilty of maintaining close relations with the main competitors of the western domination, that is to say mostly of course China and Russia.

Latsa Battle for Eurasia (II)

So, after the Second World War Europe was divided into two with an Iron Curtain, the USSR was consider the major bidder for Eurasian dominion and at the same time «Promethean» movement, desperately wishing to split the Union into separate pieces, was actively supported by the CIA. American strategists were going to try out the geopolitical skills of their ideologists for real, attempting to girdle Russia with a network of buffer countries, allowing the USA to promote their own Eurasian policy. They’ve used an utmost innovative approach: they’ve organized the delusively spontaneous wave of people’s riots against existing regimes in the neighboring countries, but without usage of violent fights and via the well-arranged network of underground organizations. In order to do so, they’ve created a variety of associations and NGOs. They’ve dubbed themselves champions of democratic principles but mostly they’ve been only protecting American political interests in the countries that it recognized as unreliable and non-democratic. I.e. these are the countries that do not enter Western alliances and belong to the union of non-allied states. That strategic concept is not new; it is dated by the 80s, the height of the Cold War. Strategy developed into tremendous number of NGOs, funded by Reagan government in order to weaken Soviet influence and oppose it.

Battle for Eurasia (I)

During the last 10 years there was a tidal wave of revolutions at the post-Soviet spaces (in Central European and Central Asian countries). These revolutions — at least those of them that ended — caused the change of power and political re-orientation of the above-mentioned states. All those changes had one similar violence-excluding scenario. All of them were portrayed by mass media as democratic revolutions, led by younger people, who needed freedom and wanted to break free from pro-Soviet, semi-democratic corrupted political systems. Those «color revolutions» or «Orange revolutions» (named after revolution in Ukraine) were presented to us as a logical and complementary continuation of «velvet revolutions». This was the way Eastern European countries started to unyoke themselves from the Soviet Union. We’ll see however that these political changes were neither coincidental, nor caused by political will of opposition. Those were carefully planned geostrategic operations,which were organized and controlled from without the countries of action. 

World in the face of future challenges

The existing world order began in 1945 and may now be characterized by its non-parity nature due to the unilateral America-centrism. Today, however, we are seeing certain signs of weakening of American power and emergence of new actors, while the world economic crisis has raised the issue of the economic principles that dominated over our planet until the recent times. It seems that the new shapes of tomorrow’s "great spaces" come into sight. What will they look like? Apparently, these would be the state unions or state groups, established on the grounds of economics, culture, military, religion and language...

Moscow, Capital of the European civilisation
On the 25th August 2008 the Financial Times bitterly wrote that Washington was left watching other superpowers modify the world reality. In a 1991 FT edition, such an assertion would only have found its place in a rubric such as ‘’ Catastrophe scenario for the future’’ or ‘’science fiction’’.
It is true though that the American media in 1991 was focused on other events: USSR had just collapsed, together with the Berlin wall. In Iraq’s sands, Bush Senior promised Humanity a ‘’New World Order’’, a fair, marvellous and above all unilateral order, under the protection of the starry flag, while Europe was starting its reunification process. We had gone into an era of so called ‘’Pax Americana’’ with all its corollaries, would they be military, financial, or economical.
Some had even predicted the end of History. History taught us they were wrong. The ‘’unipolar period’’ did not last long. 10 years only were necessary in order for an unlikely attack happens on the American territory. From then, the Empire launched two military conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, in the name of the fight against terrorism, dragging along most European nations. This Europe, that pad twice a heavy tribute for its ‘’collaboration’’ with NATO, in 2004 an 2006.
Less than 20 years after the USSR collapse, one must notice that the FT title is very topical, as the country prepares itself to choose its new leaders. A 5 days defensive war in Southern Caucasus, cleverly won by Russia, was enough to jam the expansion process of NATO. For the first time, a superpower thwarted militarily the United States of America. In August 2008, the Russian tanks that defended Tsinvali had made the old unilateral and neo liberal world, totter.
