Continuing our discussion from part one, the Kosovo situation might only be the tip of the ice berg. It could explode into something much greater which could affect the plan for NATO and European Union expansion. It is a common practice that once a war or local conflict has begun, countries will take full advantage of the confusion, the communication blackouts, and the general mayhem which follows, in order to grab a little more than their share of the pie. If you ask me, it appears that a greater war is inevitable sooner or later; whether it is a result of the current Kosovo situation, or whether it is a result of Russia feeling so threatened, that she finally decides that she must do something in order to stop further Western expansionism.
No matter how you look at it, from the perspective of the American government -- which at that time meant the Clinton Administration -- having NATO forces entrenched in Kosovo, to protect human rights, of course, would be a very smart move for the West. Perhaps they are just talking about air strikes now, but it could very well evolve into ground troops in the near future. In other words, as NATO and the European Union continue to push eastward, a war with Russia becomes more likely; so being positioned in Kosovo would be a good move strategically-speaking.
Again, I just can't see the Russian bear sitting idly by for much longer, while all of her former cubs are stolen from her one by one. A bear just doesn't act that way. It becomes very upset, and very dangerous, and it is compelled to protect its young. I suspect that Russia will try to come to the aid of her bear cubs. However, whether this development will occur under Yeltsin's leadership, or under Communist leadership, or under whoever is in power once all of the current confusion and turmoil has passed and the political dust has settled, I really don't know.
I just don't think that the Western powers will be able to keep provoking the Russian bear forever. Now, in 2016, and eighteen years after I first wrote this article, we see that Russia has finally begun to push back, despite receiving a lot of heavy condemnation from the West. Quite frankly, I find such condemnation very hypocritical, in light of all the things that the United States, NATO and the European powers did in the first place to provoke Russia to retaliate. First was when Russia grabbed back Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. Now Russia is involved in helping Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad take back his country in a very bloody, long, drawn-out civil war, in which hundreds of thousands have already died or been negatively affected in some other way. Who knows what will come next.
Before concluding this article, allow me to mention one more important point. As some of you are aware, a major part of the world is currently facing economic turmoil. News reports of late have been filled with talk of an inevitable global meltdown. We see the Asian economy in turmoil. We see the island nation of Japan reeling economically like a drunkard. We see many poor nations of the world unable to meet their debt obligations to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. We see the Russian masses revolting because of economic hardship.
Strangely, despite all of this, the American mass media continues to dupe the American populace into believing that the economy of the United States Of America is just fine, and that they have somehow remained immune to the economic problems of the world at large. Well, I am sorry to have to shake you out of your delusion, but this is the furthest thing from the truth. The American economy is also about to crash. The economy of the world is about to crash.
In retrospect, as I look back now from 2016 at my previous comments, it took a bit longer, but by 2008, the world had pretty much crashed in a financial sense, although it did not result in a global war.
But the previous point aside, history has clearly proven that when times get rough; when the economy fails; when people become dissatisfied and start revolting against their government; one of the best cures is simply to start a war. It is called a war, boom bust economy. Not only do wars inspire deep patriotism, but they also stimulate industry because people must be employed to work in the war factories building bombs, air craft, and other "toys" of destruction.
Right now, Russia could use a "good" war to unite her people. The leadership in Moscow -- meaning Boris Yeltsin -- needs something to stop the growing tide of dissatisfaction which is a result of the unpopular politics being foisted upon the Russian people. For me personally, it is easy to see how the growing threat of Western expansionism into Eastern Europe could very well be the battle cry. Maybe Boris Yeltsin might be too weak to do such a thing, but the Communist hard-liners surely are not. In fact, they have already accused Yeltsin of being responsible for Russia's fall from greatness. They could just as easily accuse him of allowing Mother Russia to become isolated from the world because of his inability to take the necessary aggressive steps to stop NATO and European Union expansion to their very doorstep. But the question is, will they?
If the Communists do return to power as during the Soviet era; and if Russia does return to her former position of strength and military power; and if she does involve herself in a war in Eastern Europe; I can also see how this could be linked to other events which I discuss in some of my other articles. I am of course referring to a possible war in the Middle East, in which certain Islamic nations may form a military alliance in order to fight against and invade the nation of Israel, more than likely with the direct or the indirect assistance of Mother Russia.
Regardless of how we choose to look at current developments in Eastern Europe, it seems that they could result in some very dire consequences at some point in the future, unless the United States and NATO back down from their aggression, which is highly unlikely. As I said earlier, they want to take advantage of Russia's current weakened state as much as they can.
In conclusion, allow me to state that I am by no means any kind of a Prophet. Likewise, I am not even a professional political analyst. I honestly do not know with one hundred per cent certainty what is going to happen in Russia; or as a result of the situation in Kosovo; or as a result of NATO and European Union expansionism. As I have done in my other articles regarding Russia, I have merely expressed my views concerning these matters, and the impressions I have of what may happen in the future. Whether or not I am right, or even close to being accurate, time will certainly tell. However, considering that I was right on the mark with regards to Mr. Kiriyenko's fall from grace, as well as with the current Communist-inspired nationwide revolts, you may want to give my words at least a little of your consideration.
Update December 31, 2016:
While a full-blown Communist revolution hasn't occurred in the Russian Federation since I first authored this article in 1998, and while Gannady Zyuganov has never been able to become the actual president of Russia via a real democratic election -- if such an untainted election can really even happen in Russia -- as I point out in a few other articles in which I discuss the situation inside of Russia, I still believe that the authoritarian, tight-fisted government that is currently run by President Vladimir Putin amounts to pretty much the same thing. Mr. Putin is very powerful; and even though he has been in power for sixteen years now, he still remains extremely popular, due in part to the fact that he has been restoring the glory of Russia of old, as it was under its former Communist bosses.
With these thoughts, I will bring this article to a close. I pray that it has been informative, and a blessing to many. If you happen to have a user account with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, etc, I would also very much appreciate if you would take the time to click on the corresponding link that is found on this page. Thanks so much, and may God bless you abundantly!
