    Russian Footprints

    Today’s international terrorism was conceived at the Lubyanka, the headquarters of the KGB, in the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day War in the Middle East.
    ...
    In 1972, the Kremlin decided to turn the whole Islamic world against Israel and the U.S. As KGB chairman Yury Andropov told me, a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on America than could a few millions.
    ...
    According to Andropov, the Islamic world was a waiting petri dish in which we could nurture a virulent strain of America-hatred, grown from the bacterium of Marxist-Leninist thought.
    ...
    We created joint ventures to build hospitals, houses, and roads in these countries, and there we sent thousands of doctors, engineers, technicians, professors, and even dance instructors. All had the task of portraying the United States as an arrogant and haughty Jewish fiefdom financed by Jewish money and run by Jewish politicians, whose aim was to subordinate the entire Islamic world.
    ...
    In the mid 1970s, the KGB ordered my service, the DIE — along with other East European sister services — to scour the country for trusted party activists belonging to various Islamic ethnic groups, train them in disinformation and terrorist operations, and infiltrate them into the countries of our “sphere of influence.”
    ...

    Lt. Gen. Pacepa notes that Soviet power was ultimately conquered through a Truth Campaign fought through the media. Whether it was Voice of America or Radio Free Europe in the 1950′s, or Ronald Reagan’s infamous “evil empire” campaign in the 1980′s, the best weapon wielded by the free world was the truth about the evils of the USSR broadcast through a free media. That is how we won the Cold War without firing a shot.

    I think you have this backwards. It's pretty well established that the US is behind ISIS/L (http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jun/03/us-isis-syria-iraq and http://anonhq.com/assange-reveals-west-behind-isis-ukraine-crisis-israel-behind-hamas/) in an effort to oust al-Assad. The Russians are al-Assad's buddy and starting bombing ISIS (somehting we never did... because they are our buddies) and then ISIS blew up a commerical Russian plane.

    All of this is way off topic... not really Skeptiko material.
