Is the Violent Dismemberment of Russia Official US Policy?

Authored by Erik D’Amato via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity:


If there’s one thing everyone in today’s Washington can agree on, it’s that whenever an official or someone being paid by the government says something truly outrageous or dangerous, there should be consequences, if only a fleeting moment of media fury.

With one notable exception: Arguing that the US should be quietly working to promote the violent disintegration and carving up of the largest country on Earth.

Because so much of the discussion around US-Russian affairs is marked by hysteria and hyperbole, you are forgiven for assuming this is an exaggeration. Unfortunately it isn’t. Published in the Hill under the dispassionate title “Managing Russia’s dissolution,” author Janusz Bugajski makes the case that the West should not only seek to contain “Moscow’s imperial ambitions” but to actively seek the dismemberment of Russia as a whole.

Engagement, criticism and limited sanctions have simply reinforced Kremlin perceptions that the West is weak and predictable. To curtail Moscow’s neo-imperialism a new strategy is needed, one that nourishes Russia’s decline and manages the international consequences of its dissolution.

Like many contemporary cold warriors, Bugajski toggles back and forth between overhyping Russia’s might and its weaknesses, notably a lack of economic dynamism and a rise in ethnic and regional fragmentation.But his primary argument is unambiguous: That the West should actively stoke longstanding regional and ethnic tensions with the ultimate aim of a dissolution of the Russian Federation, which Bugajski dismisses as an “imperial construct.”

The rationale for dissolution should be logically framed: In order to survive, Russia needs a federal democracy and a robust economy; with no democratization on the horizon and economic conditions deteriorating, the federal structure will become increasingly ungovernable…

To manage the process of dissolution and lessen the likelihood of conflict that spills over state borders, the West needs to establish links with Russia’s diverse regions and promote their peaceful transition toward statehood.

Even more alarming is Bugajski’s argument that the goal should not be self-determination for breakaway Russian territories, but the annexing of these lands to other countries. “Some regions could join countries such as Finland, Ukraine, China and Japan, from whom Moscow has forcefully appropriated territories in the past.”

It is, needless to say, impossible to imagine anything like this happening without sparking a series of conflicts that could mirror the Yugoslav Wars. Except in this version the US would directly culpable in the ignition of the hostilities, and in range of 6,800 Serbian nuclear warheads.

So who is Janusz Bugajski, and who is he speaking for?

The author bio on the Hill’s piece identifies him as a senior fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis, a Washington, D.C. think-tank. But CEPA is no ordinary talk shop: Instead of the usual foundations and well-heeled individuals, its financial backers seem to be mostly arms of the US government, including the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the US Mission to NATO, the US-government-sponsored National Endowment for Democracy, as well as as veritable who’s who of defense contractors, including Raytheon, Bell Helicopter, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin and Textron. Meanwhile, Bugajski chairs the South-Central Europe area studies program at the Foreign Service Institute of the US Department of State.

To put it in perspective, it is akin to a Russian with deep ties to the Kremlin and arms-makers arguing that the Kremlin needed to find ways to break up the United States and, if possible, have these breakaway regions absorbed by Mexico and Canada. (A scenario which alas is not as far-fetched as it might have been a few years ago; many thousands in California now openly talk of a “Calexit,” and many more in Mexico of a reconquista.)

Meanwhile, it’s hard to imagine a quasi-official voice like Bugajski’s coming out in favor of a similar policy vis-a-vis China, which has its own restive regions, and which in geopolitical terms is no more or less of a threat to the US than Russia. One reason may be that China would consider an American call for secession by the Tibetans or Uyghurs to be a serious intrusion into their internal affairs, unlike Russia, which doesn’t appear to have noticed or been ruffled by Bugajski’s immodest proposal.

Indeed, just as the real scandal in Washington is what’s legal rather than illegal, the real outrage in this case is that few or none in DC finds Bugajski’s virtual declaration of war notable.

But it is. It is the sort of provocation that international incidents are made of, and if you are a US taxpayer, it is being made in your name, and it should be among your outrages of the month.

Would this not be surprising? Hasn’t Washington ‘dismembered’ any government/nation refusing to bow to it? I would say that Washington would be in for a very rude awakening.

Olivia Kroth

Washington will be in for a rude awakening and a rude dismembering of its own limbs: let’s cut off Florida, South Californa, Alaska first. The rest will follow.

Olivia Kroth

California was divided into two halves by the rapacious USA. Lets reunite North and South California under Mexican rule. California was Mexican property and should be returned. Then let’s give Alaska back to the Russians. Alaska used to be Russian territory, then sold to the USA. Let’s steal it back for Russia, after all, the USA are masters of theft. Let’s imitate them. Finally, cut off Florida and give it to Cuba as a New Year’s gift. Cuba has suffered so much injustice from the USA that it is entitled to some recompensation. Most inhabitants of Florida are exiled Cubans,… Read more »

The Poles are trouble makers in Russia, always have been, always will be. Let’s look at the Polish whore Matilda, who wormed her way into the last tsar’s bed, disturbing his marriage to his wife, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna (1872 – 1918). She was of German origin, Princess Alix of Hesse and by Rhine. The Polish whore, Mathilda-Marie Feliksovna Kschessinskaya (Polish: Matylda Maria Krzesińska) worked as a dancer in Saint Petersburg. Nicolas II and his whole family were murdered in 1918, during the Russian Revolution, because he exploited the poor people of Russia, and certainly also because of his immoral conduct,… Read more »

Where does Washington find these so called experts like Janusz Bugajski – he’s talking from an orifice about six inches below the waist line. Dismemberment of Russia isn’t going to happen – the Russian’s will defend their motherland to the last bullet. Numerous adversaries have made attempts to dismember and conquer Russia and failed!.

Normski, You probably remember the recent (last year of the one before) Vladimir Putin’s comments about Russia’s military reaction if the Usurper States of Aggression dared to (greedly and stupidly, as usual) declare war to Russia and go to war against Russia. His warning was: Russia lost 27,000,000 people (civilians and military) during WW2. Since then no other country (referring to Germany I guess…) will be allowed to start a war against Russia. Russia will go nuclear instantly!!! (And Russia has many nuclear vectors to deal once and for all with the Usurper States. Unfortunately, that will be the end… Read more »

Not only are the idiotic Polacks against Russia, they are furthermore anti-semitic. They helped the Nazis to round up Jews in Poland and place them in concentration camps. Now the dumb Polacks continue their antisemitic hate. The Times of Israel reports “Poland picks former hate group boss to police internet, says Jewish organization AJC says that Adam Andruszkiewicz, the Polish secretary of state in the Digital Affairs Ministry, leads a group which states ‘Jews are a racist foreign group’ in its ideological doctrine …” The Poles are getting dumb and dumber, because they have been practising incest for centuries, killing… Read more »

The ugly truth about Polish anti-semitism:

Olivia Kroth

The Polish antisemites never paid any reparations to the families of those Jewish citizens that they sent to the extermination camps with Nazi help. They paid nothing at all, until this very day, although they stole a lot of Jewish possessions and real estate, after they had helped murdering them.

This is not ‘bigly’, this is ‘poorly”! What else could we expect from a bankrupt, failed state like that of Poland? Nothing good will ever come from there, nothing at all.

WARSAW, January 24. /TASS/. Warsaw’s crusade to tear down Red Army monuments is a disgrace to the country, said former prisoner of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Oswiecim, Poland, Bogdan Bartnikowski. On January 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the whole world will remember the tragic death of millions of innocent people at the hands of the Nazi oppressors. The largest extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau was freed by the Red Army 74 years ago. Bartnikowski was placed in the extermination camp in August 1944 at the age of 12. In January 1945, he and his mother were taken to Berlin to clear… Read more »

Regarding “violent dismemberment”: In 1941 the antisemitic, primitive Poles “dismembered” a whole Jewish community of 1.600 people in Poland. The narrow-minded Polacks are great “dismemberers” until this very day. Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, is a 2001 book by historian Jan T. Gross, exploring the July 1941 Jedwabne massacre committed against Polish Jews by their non-Jewish neighbors in the village of Jedwabne in Nazi-occupied Poland. The book describes how the massacre was perpetrated by non-Jewish Poles, and not by the German invaders. Today, the Polish authorities still deny that this atrocity and others were committed.… Read more »

Anti-Polish sentiment has a long tradition, and it is still very strong all over Europe and in Russia. Maybe the USA do not understand much about this part of European history, as they keep hiring emigrant Poles to work for them as “useful idiots” at the UN? Organized persecution of Poles happened in the Russian Empire, mainly under Tsar Nicholas II. In the Russian language, the term mazurik (мазурик) is a synonym for “pickpocket” or “petty thief”. Literally it means “little Masovian”, Masovia being a part of Poland. In Europe, the expression “Polish plumber” symbolizes the threat of cheap labor… Read more »

Thankfully, after that crash in 2010, Polish tourism to the Russian Federation has diminished drastically. I can’t say that I am sorry about that. The less Poles in Russia, the better. Chinese tourists come in great numbers and they bring along a ot more cash than the poor Poles do.

Following the shootdown of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine in July 2014, the Polish government on 24 July cancelled the “Polish Year in Russia” and “Russian Year in Poland” that were planned for 2015.

Well, I am glad they cancelled it. Who needs dumb Poles in Russia? Stay out of Russia, you Polack idiots, and keep complaining to the UN.

The ‘dismemberment of Russia’ as an objective will lead to nuclear war. Power, (manifested as interest) was present in very conflict in history – no exception. It is the underlying motivation for war. History shows that every civilization/nation eventually gets the war it is trying to avoid: utter defeat. This applies as much today as any other time in history. Leaders and decision-makers delude themselves, thinking they can avoid their fate, convincing themselves they can win when they can’t. https://www.ghostsofhistory.wordpress.com/

The oligarchs who drive/order governments for their own never enough need$$$$$$$$$ have been convinced that their super bunkers will save them from a nuclear winter. Totally wrong! Nuclear radiation lasts longer and longer as it diminishes. For instance, plutonium bombs’ radiation last about a maximum of 7 to 10 years, but depleted uranium, just like the one used in Iraq by the US to make bullets, bombs, grenades, etc. can last millions of years.

“Janusz Bugajski…” One of the best things about Poles is that they have such distinctive names. That makes it easy to pick them out in a crowd – or in Washington DC. So a Pole wants Russia to be dismembered – what an astonishing surprise. Just imagine the furore if a Russian were to propose the dismemberment of Poland – which, after WW2, immediately grew to enormous proportions, mainly at the expense of Germany. Come to think of it, during the 18th and 19th centuries Poland itself came very close to disappearing completely, as it was partitioned between Prussia, Russia… Read more »

The name reminds me of Polish-US blabbermouth Zbigniew Kazimierz “Zbig” Brzezinski and his blabbermouth offspring, Mika Brzezinski, blabbering away in a popular US talk show. Blabbering seems to be a favourite Polish (and US-Polish) pastime. The Poles never achieved anything worthwhile because they are preoccupied with blabbering. If only Russia, Prussia and Austria had dismembered that blabbermouth nation of Poland permanently. But no! The Soviet Union even helped Poland during World War II and freed Auschwitz from the Nazis. Today another Polish blabbermouth (forgot his name) is even chief of the EU. Polish blabbering never dies out! It’s in their… Read more »

Another dumb pretentious Pole in Russian history was “the false Dmitry” who had pretentions to ascend the tsarist throne:

Dmitry I ( Димитрий Первый), there were rumors that Dmitry was an illegitimate son of the Polish king, Stefan Batory, who had reigned from 1575 to 1586; according to a later tale, Dmitry blurted out that identity when once slapped by a violent master.

Blurting out and pretending, that has a long history in Poland. It is in their DNA, passed down from one generation to the next.

No wonder that most Russians despise Poland.

Yammering loudmouth Donald Tusk, so-called “President” of the dictatorial EU, not only wants to meddle in Russian affairs but also in Venezuelan affairs. Now he is declaring Venezuela’s democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro as “illegal”. The loudmouthed Polack cretin Tusk should sweep out his own pigsty, the failed bankrupt Polish dump, instead of playing “world arbiter”. That Polack idiot!

TASS reports:
… Western politicians claim to serve as the voice of the Venezuelan people. For instance, (…) Donald Tusk said that ‘unlike Maduro, the parliamentary assembly, including Juan Guaido, have a democratic mandate from Venezuelan citizens’.

Ninety percent of ‘NeoCons’ are inheritors of the Bolshevik Jews, and often, as is the case with Adam Schiff, direct descendants of the Jews who funded the murder of the Czar and the Holocaust of Christian Slavs in the Russian Empire 1917 – 1975 (they call it ‘The Russian Revolution’). Russia is, for them, the scene of the crime. Like the wreckage of that more recent ‘scene of the crime’ which was hastily removed without forensic investigation, the WTC, the return of Russia endangers the global conspiracy of the Neo-Bolsheviks with exposure. That is part of the criminal logic of… Read more »

The mere reading of the ravings of this Golem Bugajski is like taking a dirty bath in Neo-Bolshevik bathwater! Very modest of psychopath Bugajski to not mention Poland as an inheritor of chunks of ‘dismembered’ Russia. The lack of alarm at the evidence of Talmudo-Satanists in high places in the USA is a very dangerous phenomenon. The good news is, those who are aware of it’s prevalence and the tolerance which people like Bugajski enjoy, will be far more muscular and eager, when the time comes, to cleanse the entire West with fire and radiation.
