4/23 Boston, p.2: Deep Central Asia Involvement, Major Domestic Moves

digest commentary: this issue will dig deeper into why & how Boston is in the crux of the global domination war and its 'homeland' war front.
The 'false flag' Boston operation takes domestic 'fascism with a friendly face' to a very desperate new level. As it attempts to salvage its failed agenda internationally, the US must preemptively manufacture public opinion to not only accept but actively embrace a patriotic clampdown, preparing for what analysts/strategists predict will be serious 'civil unrest'

Millions since 911 have acted as if they have the personal option to 'opt out', or to 'hope' in, the electoral con-game, and avoid eloquently deployed fascist reality they refuse to see. Time's up. Soft & hard power 'velvet gloves' are being ripped off. Tonight's strategic communications aka news, in different styles designed for different 'socio-economic' audiences, NPR, ABC, NBC, assures us we're 'resilient' and have 'we've won the battle', but, the war to keep us safe continues, the brain-shot, heavily drugged, if not dead, younger brother is 'communicating', and everyone the 'terrorist brothers' were ever in contact with anywhere in the world, will be 'contacted'.
These state-trained propagandists enthusiastically promote the most bizarre assertions and analyses contradicting earlier 'reports': like, only 1 gun was found after reporting massive arsenals and shootouts with police. With martial law lockdown, no witnesses except the chosen. Starring 'terrorist' brothers' uncle Tsarni who got lots of play against their parents' information that FBI had being on them for years, then 'lost track' of them, vociferously denouncing his vile nephews, Uncle Tsarni, apparently involved in money-laundering, at Big Sky Energy Corp. where he was a top executive. According to some digest research and info posted by muckraker Daniel Hopsicker (his specialty: burying dangerous political US exposure in sensational facts. In this case,the huge significance of the 'boston terrorist' brothers' uncle Tsarni being a business player and US agent in the decades-long murderous US war to overthrow Russian regional power and influence:
..."Big Sky, which used to be known as China Energy Ventures Corp, is a now-bankrupt US oil company run by S.A... long-time executive of Halliburton, which had oil leases in Kakakhstan’s Caspian Basin. Tsarni joined Big Sky in 2005, was Corporate Secretary and Vice President for Business Development..A press release announcing his appointment stated: “Mr. Ruslan Tsarni, a U.S. citizen, has over 10 years of professional experience in oil and gas legislation and corporate law. Previously, Mr. Tsarni served as Corporate Counsel of Nelson Resources Limited Group as well as Managing Director of several of its operating subsidiaries. From 1999 to 2001, Mr. Tsarni worked as Head of Legal Affairs of Golden Eagle Partners LLC. .1994 to 1996, Mr. Tsarni served as a consultant contracted by USAID for projects to develop securities markets in Central Asia, where he trained corporate governance and corporate finance principals in state and private companies.”.... (London Sunday Times 5/8/11 }...

Intensifying up its 'overseas contingency operations' (obama's preferred term for GWOT_now featuring the targeted assassination "Disposition Matrix" apparently also in the 'homeland'.
By now the MO is familiar: pretext target, non-stop 'news' with ever-changing assertions and 'evidence' packaged for emotional masturbation, launch witchhunt with relentless manipulation for mass support of whatever 'security and mental health experts' deem necessary to expand control of the national security state, capture' 'terrorist' and/or 'mentally ill' perpetrator, charges, due process, trial and conviction done through media , preferably kill or else 'pacify' the target into confessing behind forever closed doors..

It's not a new Since anglo-american capital conquered north america by genocide and slavery, imperialist finance capital expanded 'manifest destiny' globally making everyday life or death for the billions it exploits, terrorizes, controls and crushes. Now the situation is also life or death for the US political-economic system: no going back to pre-imperialist nation-state capitalism. If this system loses global hegemony, it's dead. The only good It produces are its own gravediggers. Will we be complicit 'good americans', or stand up and resist the horror with 'terrorists' worldwide?

Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era
Zbigniew Brzezinski,, 1970
"The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen...millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities effectively exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason... These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieve/review by the authorities...Technology will make available to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of security forces need be appraised....techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm..

Bloomberg Says Interpretation of Constitution Will ‘Have to Change’ After Boston Bombing
Mr. Bloomberg, who has come under fire for N.Y.P.D. monitoring of Muslim communities and other aggressive tactics, said the rest of the country needs to learn from the attacks.
“ We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11."
What we cant do is let the protection get in the way of enjoying our freedoms. You still want to let people practice their religion... I think one of the great dangers here is going and categorizing anybody from one religion as a terrorist… That would let the terrorists win. That’s what they want us to do.”

Boston Attack Renews Fears About Homegrown Terrorism
Threat Evolves From Complex International Plots to Small-Scale Attacks by Individuals Within U.S

...U.S. counterterrorism policy has since 2001 focused largely on killing terrorists overseas or preventing them from getting into the U.S. But the Boston bombings show how the diffusion of terrorist tactics easily transcends borders. Bruce Riedel, director of the Intelligence Project at the Brookings Institution, a nonpartisan Washington think tank, said the Boston attack was likely a harbinger. "We are likely to see this as the future face of terrorist threats to the United States," he said, adding that the case of a small number of radicalized participants who lived in the U.S. and execute a plot is "the counterterrorist community's worst nightmare, homegrown, self-radicalizing terrorism that learns its skill set off the Internet."...
A wild card in the bombing is the possible role of the Chechen separatist cause which flared after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 only to be crushed by the Kremlin. *RAND CORP international security specialist Olga Oliker said the Chechen separatist leadership has become radicalized and more recently formed an umbrella radical group, the Caucuses Emirate designated by the U.S. as a terrorist organization in 2011. The leadership, however, tends not to direct overseas operations... it is more likely the two brothers were sympathizers who decided to take action in the U.S....

Dzhokhar Said to Cite Iraq, Afghanistan Wars as Motivation
4/23 By Josh Voorhees, http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2013/04/23/dzhokhar_tsarnaev_inte...
UPDATE: The Washington Post works its sources and gets a little more on the motivation front: The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings told interrogators the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan motivated him and his brother to carry out the attack, according to U.S. officials familiar with the interviews...Dzhokhar Tsarnaev specifically cited the U.S. war in Iraq which ** ended in December 2011 with the removal of the last American forces, and in Afghanistan, where President Obama made plans to end combat operations by the end of 2014

...his account sounds like it lines up with the rest of the evidence. CBS News reports that so far the government has not found any evidence to suggest the brothers had ties to any major terror group, and two officials likewise tell the Associated Press that the pair were motivated by religion. That all appears to confirm what Tapper's source is telling him, namely that preliminary interviews with Tsarnaev suggest he and his brother fit in the classification of (in CNN's words) "self-starters, self-radicalized jihadists." Dzhokhar Tsarnaev suffered a (perhaps self-inflicted) gunshot wound the throat, and is largely unable to speak. He mostly only nodded during a short bedside hearing yesterday...

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced the decision to lock down Watertown and the surrounding areas, including Boston, at a dawn news conference Friday "We're asking people to shelter in place — in other words, to stay indoors with their doors locked and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officers." It is not unusual to lock down schools and other institutions when there are reports of gunfire. After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the nation's air traffic was halted as well as some other potential targets, such as the New York Stock Exchange,. But to shut down a metropolitan area is another thing, says Frank Cilluffo, director of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University. "In terms of both scale and scope, the shelter-in-place that was enforced was extraordinary, perhaps even unprecedented, but so too were the circumstances"...

Boston bombings may complicate U.S.-Russian diplomacy over Syria
http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/boston-bombings-ma...
The possible link between the Boston Marathon bombings and Chechnya’s struggle for independence from Russia is likely to harden Russian opposition to any outside intervention in Syria and complicate the question of whether to arm the Syrian rebels....The experience underpins Russia’s support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his two-year fight to put down a rebellion he calls terrorism.The US is edging toward stronger backing for the Syrian rebels and hopes to win at least tacit Russian assent...Secretary of State Kerry will lobby his Russian counterpart on Syria early next week in their second meeting in three weeks. He is also meeting European and Persian Gulf partners much more deeply involved in Syria...“Moscow will undoubtedly point to the bombing to further its argument that terrorists are active in Syria as well as Chechnya,” said Mark N. Katz, a Russia scholar at George Mason University.

'US base in Bishkek very dangerous'
12/29/11, http://www.presstv.ir/detail/218312.html
Kyrgyzstan's President Almazbek Atambayev told visiting US Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake, that the US military base in the country's capital, Bishkek is "very dangerous" for the Central Asian nation..that the annual $150 million fee the US pays Kyrgyzstan for the right to use the Manas Air Force Base was not worth all the risks. The US Manas Air Force Base that has played a major role in American military operations since the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 is located at a civilian airport on the outskirts of the Kyrgyz capital, Bishkek. The Kyrgyz government wanted to shut down the base in 2009 due to issues caused by US troops stationed in Manas. However, US officials managed to negotiate a new agreement later that year after increasing its annual payment to the Kyrgyz government. After becoming the president last month, Atambayev said his country has notified the US to close its military base following the expiration of its lease in 2014. "Our country will honor all its international agreements, but we have warned the US embassy that they will have to close the base in 2014," said Atambayev.

Chaos engulfs vital nation in Afghan war; dozens die
4/7/10 by Alex Rodriguez, LATimes, http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/cgi-bin/PrintStory.pl?document_id=20115...
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan. The small, mountainous Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan, a vital conduit for supplies to U.S. forces in Afghanistan, plunged into chaos Wednesday as thousands of protesters ransacked government buildings and riot police fired on crowds, killing dozens of people. The unrest left the fate of the government of President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in doubt. Bakiyev has led the country since the 2005 Tulip Revolution, which deposed autocratic leader Askar Akayev. In the wake of Wednesday's violence, Bakiyev's government declared a state of emergency, even as opposition leaders claimed to have assumed power and Kyrgyzstan's border with Kazakhstan was closed.
Kyrgyzstan is the only country that hosts both U.S. and Russian military bases. Manas is the only remaining U.S. base in Central Asia and is considered vital to the Afghanistan war effort.
A senior U.S. military official said Kyrgyzstan officials halted flights at Manas for 12 hours Wednesday. The base was expected to reopen around 8 a.m. Thursday, the official said. U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) spokesman Bill Speaks, said some troops and equipment scheduled to transit from Manas to Afghanistan were likely to be delayed because of the government upheaval and that the military was preparing to use other routes. Kyrgyz leaders have called for closure of Manas because they say the base would put the country at risk if the U.S. becomes involved in military conflict with Iran. Bakiyev has threatened at least twice to end U.S. use of the airport, but reconsidered after negotiating larger payments. Jeffrey Mankoff, a Central Asia specialist with the Council on Foreign Relations, said "My instinct is that whoever is in power would be amenable to keeping the base open, as long as the price is right."The Obama administration reportedly agreed last year to increase annual rent from about $16 million to $60 million. Kyrgyz are secular Muslims, but Islamist sentiments don't appear to have played a role in the violence....The violence Tuesday and W ednesday was preceded by Bakiyev's decision to arrest 10 opposition leaders...demonstrations went on as planned, with thousands converging on Bishkek.Elsewhere, several regional governors relinquished their posts as protesters seized government buildings.
Like Georgia's Rose Revolution in 2003 and the Orange Revolution in Ukraine in 2004, the revolt that overthrew Akayev was fueled by anger over rigged elections and a thirst for democratic change. Since then, however, many Kyrgyz in the nation of 5 million 'one-third living below the poverty line ” have become disillusioned with Bakiyev they accuse of fostering the same cronyism, corruption and crackdowns on media freedoms that characterized the Akayev era.

Kyrgyzstan: a Russian revolution?
US is on the back foot in Central Asia after Vladimir Putin appears to be winning a round in the new Great Game
4/8/10 Simon Tisdallm http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/apr/08/kyrgyzstan-vladimir-...
Putin said in a typically sardonic statement that invited disbelief. As far as he was concerned, opposition leader Roza Otunbayeva was "the new head of government".But if Moscow were found to have had a hand in this latest upheaval, it would hardly come as a shock. Machiavellian Russian machinations in Kyrgyzstan, as in the other former Soviet republics of central Asia, has become the norm in the Putin era. Competition with China and the US for control of strategically important energy resources and transit routes is one key motivator. More fundamentally, Moscow still unfashionably insists on regarding this vast region as falling within its sphere of influence...It is unlikely that Bakiyev's apparent double-dealing endeared him to Putin, no more than his recent counter-terrorism training deal with US general David Petraeus....Evidence of Russian meddling in Kyrgyzstan is not hard to find. Financial and commercial blandishments dangled by Putin during a visit to Moscow by Bakiyev last year, including a $2bn loan, preceded a decision by the then president to evict the US from its Manas air base, a key staging and supply route to Afghanistan. Only some nifty footwork by the Obama administration, and a sudden Bakiyev volte-face, allowed the US to hang on to Manas.....What happens next in vulnerable, impoverished Kyrgyzstan depends on whether its new and not-so-new leaders, representing in effect the country's third attempt at a post-Soviet fresh start, prove to be any more enlightened and trustworthy than their predecessors. It would certainly help if Russia and the US, and regional powers like China and Kazakhstan, do not try to exploit the power vacuum, confine themselves to constructive advice and assistance, and stop using the country as a Great Game playboard.

New US puppet in Kyrgyzstan
4/9/10 http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/apr/09/kyrgyzstan-roza-otunbayeva-b...
Kyrgyzstan new interim government head Roza Otunbayeva said yesterday her country was broke, that the former president who was overthrown in a street-led revolution this week had left only $80m in the budget. In an interview with the Guardian, she appealed for urgent international aid so that the impoverished Central Asian nation. Otunbayeva, who served in London as Kyrgyzstan's ambassador between 1997-2002, said her new opposition-led government would allow the US to continue using the Manas airbase, near Bishkek, a vital supply post for the US military moving in and out of nearby Afghanistan. "We will respect our existing commitments," she said, adding she hadn't seen the contract.
The base is a source of tension with Russia, which regards Central Asia as its backyard, and would like the US to leave. Bakiyev fell out with the Kremlin last year after promising to evict the US from Manas in return for large loans, only to renege on the deal when the Obama administration offered to substantially up the rent. Otunbayeva, however, hinted the new government sees Russia as its most important strategic partner...."I met with the Russian ambassador two or three weeks before the revolution but I also met with the US, EU and Chinese ambassadors too," she said....Michael McFaul, Obama's senior director for Russian affairs, said: "The people allegedly running Kyrgyzstan... are all people we've had contact with for many years."....
Otunbayeva... said: "We've had a very sad lesson in democracy learning. If people are not respected, if they are totally depressed, then one day they will explode and rise up. Unfortunately I have seen this for a second time with my own eyes."

SOROS Falls from Grace in Central Asia After Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan
http://www.newscentralasia.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=11...

Kyrgyzstan a Geopolitical Pivot
F. William Engdahl, http://www.engdahl.oilgeopolitics.net/
The remote Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan is what Britain’s Halford Mackinder might call a geopolitical ‘pivot’...Today the tiny remote country is being shaken by what appears to be an extremely well-planned popular uprising to topple US-backed president Kurmanbek Bakiyev...that might be Moscow’s attempt to ‘reverse’ US ‘Color Revolutions’ - Georgia’s Rose Revolution of 2003 or Ukraine’s Orange Revolution in 2004, as well as the 2005 Tulip Revolution that brought the pro-US Bakiyev to power... At the very least, what is playing out has huge strategic implications for military security throughout the Eurasian Heartland - from China to Russia and ...therefore staggering implications for the future of the US in Afghanistan and Central Asia and by extension all Eurasia. The US war in Afghanistan, the record opium harvest of Afghanistan and events in Kyrgyzstan, are all intimately interwoven in the most geopolitically important piece of real estate on the planet—Central Asia....Pentagon Full Spectrum Dominance. For more visit http://oilgeopolitics.net/Geopolitics___Eurasia/geopolitics___eurasia.ht...
Washington strategy also targets many Eurasian former Soviet republics which per se have no known oil or gas reserves. What they do have, however, is strategic military or geopolitical significance for the Washington policy of dominating the future of Eurasia, China its geopolitical, economic and military fulcrum. A look at the Eurasian map and at the target countries for various US-sponsored Color Revolutions makes this unmistakably clear. To the east of the Caspian Sea, in one degree or another, the US today controls Pakistan, Afghanistan, potentially Kyrgystan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.... a US-controlled barrier or buffer zone between China and Russian, Caspian and Iranian energy sources... to deny China easy land access to Russia, the Middle East or the oil and gas fields of the Caspian Sea.

Whither Kyrgystan?
Since early 2005... Kyrgystan has joined the growing list of Eurasian republics facing major threat of 'color revolution' regime change. The success of former Kyrgystan Prime Minister Kurmanbek Bakiev in replacing ousted President Askar Akayev in that country’s so-called ‘Tulip Revolution’... invited inevitable comparison with the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the Georgian Rose Revolution. Washington’s Radio Liberty has gone to great lengths to explain that the Kyrgystan opposition is a genuine spontaneous grass roots phenomenon. The facts speak a different story. According to reports from mainstream US journalists, including NYT Craig S. Smith (March 30, 2005 U.S. Helped to Prepare the Way for Kyrgyzstan's Uprising} and Philip Shishkin in the Wall Street Journal, the opposition in Kyrgystan has had more than a little US help. Under the US Freedom Support Act, in 2004 the dirt poor country of Kyrgystan got $12 million in US to...buy a lot of democracy in an economically desolate, forsaken land such as Kyrgystan....Edil Baisolov, in a comment on the February-March anti-government protests, boasted, ‘It would have been absolutely impossible for this to have happened without that help.’ Baisolov's organization, the Coalition for Democracy and Civil Rights, according to the NYT's Craig Smith,, is financed by the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, a Washington-based nonprofit organization funded by the State Department. Baisolov told Radio Liberty he had been to Ukraine to witness the tactics of their Orange Revolution, and got inspired...
The whole cast of democracy characters has been busy in Bishkek and environs supporting American-style democracy and opposing ‘anti-American tyranny.’ ...Freedom House...was set up in the late 1940’s to back the creation of NATO. The chairman of Freedom House is James Woolsey, former CIA director who calls the present series of regime changes from Baghdad to Kabul, ‘World War IV.’ Other trustees include the ubiquitous Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Clinton Commerce Secretary Stuart Eizenstat, and National Security Adviser Anthony Lake. Freedom House lists among its financial backers, USAID, US Information Agency, Soros Foundations and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). The NED with Freedom House, has been at the center of all the Color Revolutions... NATO General Wesley Clark, who led the US bombing of Serbia in 1999, sits on the NED Board, with Allen Weinstein, who helped draft the legislation establishing NED, said in 1991, ‘A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA."... George Soros’ Open Society Institute has poured money into the Serbian, Georgian and Ukraine Color Revolutions.(ed: Soros takes credit for bringing former Soviet states under US aegis)
The head of the Civil Society Against Corruption in Kyrgystan, Tolekan Ismailova, organized the translation and distribution of Gene Sharp's 'strategic non-violence' how-to- manual ‘From Dictatorship to Democracy.’used in Serbia, Ukraine and Georgia... a kind of ‘regime change for dummies.’ Sharp created his mis-named Albert Einstein Institution in 1983, with backing from Harvard University, funded by NED and Soros Foundations, to train people in ‘non-violence as a form of warfare.’ Sharp has worked with NATO and the CIA over the years training operators in Burma, Lithuania, Serbia, Georgia, Ukraine to Taiwan, Venezuela and Iraq.
In short virtually every regime which has been the target of a US-backed soft coup in the past twenty years has involved Gene Sharp and usually, his associate, Col. Robert Helvey, a retired US Army intelligence specialist. Notably, Sharp was in Beijing two weeks before student demonstrations at Tiananmen Square in 1989. The Pentagon and US intelligence have refined the art of such soft coups to a fine level. RAND planners call it ‘swarming,’ referring to the swarms of youth, typically linked by SMS and web blogs, who can be mobilized on command to destabilize a target regime. (ed: US 'soft and hard' power is now 'seamlessly' merged for 'smart power').....
Geopolitical control of Uzbekistan, Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan would enable control of any potential pipeline routes between China and Central Asia just as the encirclement of Russia controls pipeline and other ties between it and western Europe, China, India and the Mideast. In this context, the Sept.-Oct.1997 Foreign Affairs article by Zbigniew Brizezinski is worth quoting again:

‘Eurasia is home to most of the world's politically assertive and dynamic states. All the historical pretenders to global power originated in Eurasia. The world's most populous aspirants to regional hegemony, China and India, are in Eurasia, as are all the potential political or economic challengers to American primacy. After the United States, the next six largest economies and military spenders are there, as are all but one of the world's overt nuclear powers, and all but one of the covert ones. Eurasia accounts for 75 percent of the world's population, 60 percent of its GNP, and 75 percent of its energy resources. Collectively, Eurasia's potential power overshadows even America's.
‘Eurasia is the world's axial supercontinent. A power that dominated Eurasia would exercise decisive influence over two of the world's three most economically productive regions, Western Europe and East Asia. A glance at the map also suggests that a country dominant in Eurasia would almost automatically control the Middle East and Africa. With Eurasia now serving as the decisive geopolitical chessboard, it no longer suffices to fashion one policy for Europe and another for Asia. What happens with the distribution of power on the Eurasian landmass will be of decisive importance to America's global primacy….’

"Tulip Revolution": US /Soros Kyrgyz pro-democracy 'color revolution'
April 3, 2005
Shortly before parliamentary elections were held in Kyrgyzstan, an opposition-run newspaper ran photographs of a palace under construction for since-deposed president Askar Akayev. This newspaper received grants from and was printed on a printing press financed by the US government. The US government itself confirms this. In fact, nearly one year ago in May 2004, Lorne Craner, US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor revealed: The US has been financing pro-democracy programs in Kyrgyzstan under the FREEDOM Support Act of 1992...Kyrgyzstan became the nation with the highest per-capita foreign assistance level in central Asia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Most of the money came from the US, under the FREEDOM Support Act, passed in 1992 to help former Soviet republics in transition. Money ear-marked for Kyrgyz pro-democracy programs totaled about $13.3 million dollars last year. According to a US State Department statement, the programs receiving the money "focus on improving political processes and accountability of government institutions, strengthening civil society and public advocacy, and supporting independent media. Deposed president Askar Akayev accused the US of plotting to topple him. Akayev, in an interview with RIA Novosti, said that the opposition which had taken over the government in Kyrgyzstan was supported "with financial and technical support from the USA." ...hecited a report posted on the Internet and attributed to the US ambassador in Kyrgyzstan. "The scenario was carried out to a tee. In it he writes that president Akayev has to be toppled, removed. And because the country is key, a neighbor of China, with a Russian [military] base, it's necessary to increase influence there."
