Soros's Hand in the Caucasus War Scenario

Aug. 8, 2008 (EIRNS)—The evidence of a British hand in the Georgian-Russian war can be found, in the "War against Russia" policy uttered by British agencies, in particular those belonging or connected to George Soros. Both the Soros-created European Council on Foreign Relations, and the Soros-connected German Marshall Fund have recently restated that policy.

On July 19, ECFR executive director Mark Leonard and ECFR senior fellow Andrew Wilson wrote an article in Newsweek with the kicker "Europe needs to figure out a way to come together to fight back against Russian aggression," in which they list a whole series of alleged acts of aggression, from "gas imperialism," to the Litvinenko case, to shutting down the British Council in Russia. "It is therefore time for the EU to agree, at least in principle, to a common response to these shows of Russian aggression.... When the next crisis comes, all European states will need to be prepared."

On July 15, German Marshall Fund head Ronald D. Asmus, who has operations in Georgia together with Soros' Open Society, wrote an article in the Washington Post entitled "A War the West Must Stop," exposing "Moscow's desire to subjugate Tbilisi and thwart its aspirations to go West." "A conflict over Georgia could become an issue in the U.S. presidential campaign. How they respond could become a test of the potential commander-in-chief qualities of Barack Obama and John McCain."

At the end of his article, Asmus complains that the current complications are the legacy of FDR's "accepting spheres of influences" at Yalta.

Asmus headed the presentation of the famous five NATO generals' report in Brussels, on Jan. 16, 2008, calling for preemptive use of nuclear weapons against so-called rogue states.

The head of the Georgian Open Society Foundation, David Darchiashvili, is an alumnus of the German Marshall Fund. In a recent seminar of GMF alumni in Tbilisi, July 20, 2007, Darchiashvili spoke on "reform of the security sector and civil-military relationships before and after the revolutions."
