                           EPILOGUE: December, 1992


     Some  two  years  after  Iraq's  invasion  of  Kuwait,  Saddam  Hussein

 continues  to  provoke  the West.  In the wake of his seeming defeat in the

 Gulf war,  Saddam  has  repeatedly  violated  United  Nations'  resolutions

 against  Iraq and has pursued campaigns of brutal internal repression which

 have been internationally condemned.  His  provocations  have  brought  the

 world  to  the  brink  of  renewed  hostilities in the Persian Gulf several

 times, but fortunately Iraq keeps backing down.

     That Saddam continues to provoke the West is inconsistent  with  Iraq's

 best  interest  but  is  favorable  to Western interests.  By continuing to

 aggravate the United Nations and the Western powers, Saddam is reducing the

 chances for the international sanctions against Iraq to  be  lifted.  Also,

 he  is  making  it  virtually  impossible  for  Iraq  to  reenter the world

 community such that Iraqi political, economic,  and,  eventually,  military

 power  can be rebuilt.  Lastly,  Saddam's troublesome behavior has provided

 the West reason and support for renewing hostilities and  seeking  to  oust

 the Iraqi dictator from power.

     Saddam's  seemingly  irrational,  self-destructive behavior can be made

 sense of in the context of a grand strategy by  the  East  to  deceive  and

 defeat the West.

     In waging a third world war, the East would seek to win popular control

 of  the  world along side military control.  To do this,  the blame for war

 must  be  shifted  on  to  the  West.  This  is  because  whoever  is  held

 responsible  for  causing  the immense holocaust of world war three will be

 the focus of unprecedented popular hate.  Thus,  if it can be  staged  such

 that  global war appears to be the West's fault,  then people will support,

 rather than resist, an effort by the East to defeat the Western powers and,

 in turn, dominate the world.

     The exact set-up which could be used to frame the West likely  involves

 a future,  unprecedented international crisis or series of crises that will

 end in global war triggered from the Middle East.  The stage for  this  may

 currently be under development in the form of persistent Iraqi provocations

 against  the  West,  Arab/Israeli  peace  negotiations,  a  rising  tide of

 nationalism and ethnic warfare-particularly in Yugoslavia and the Caucuses,

 and increasing political turmoil in Russia.

                        -Another Persian Gulf Crisis-

     A logical explanation for Saddam's continuous and apparently irrational

 provocations is that he wants the West to resume hostilities and/or seek an

 overthrow of his dictatorship.

     On several occasions now Saddam has violated United Nations resolutions

 against Iraq and has brought forth serious confrontations with the  Western

 powers.  After  a  "No-Fly  Zone"  was  established  over  northern Iraq to

 protect Iraqi Kurds,  Iraq moved missiles and used radar to threaten allied

 flights.  After  an  ultimatum from the Western powers,  Saddam backed down

 and removed  the  missiles.  Last  July,  Iraq  refused  to  admit  weapons

 inspectors to its Ministry of Agriculture headquarters.  After the Security

 Council threatened to use force, Iraq allowed the inspectors in.  On top of

 these military confrontations,  Saddam has irritated the United Nations and

 the West by frustrating numerous  weapons  inspections,  failing  to  fully

 disclose  information about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction,  apparently

 hiding SCUD missiles,  planting bombs on trucks carrying aid to the  Kurds,

 harassing United Nations officials working inside Iraq,  rejecting terms of

 U.N.-monitored oil sales intended to pay compensation  to  victims  of  the

 Kuwaiti  invasion,  and  boycotting  meetings  of  the Iraq-Kuwait boundary

 commision and rejecting some of  its  findings.  All  in  all,  Saddam  has

 persistently  antagonized the United Nations and the Western powers in ways

 which may eventually result in renewed hostilities.

     On top of provoking confrontations with the  United  Nations,  Saddam's

 antagonism has led the West to seek an overthrow of the Iraqi dictator.  By

 creating  militarily-enforced  'No-Fly  Zones',  the  West  has effectively

 partitioned Iraq into three separate states, thereby cornering Saddam:  the

 Kurd's have the North,  the Shiite's have the South,  and Saddam is trapped

 in the middle.  Besides cornering Saddam,  America and the  Western  allies

 have  helped  organize,  and  have pledged support for,  forces inside Iraq

 seeking to oust Saddam Hussein from  power.  For  instance,  the  West  has

 backed  the development of the 'Iraqi National Congress',  a conglomeration

 of various groups inside Iraq that are opposed to Saddam.  The Congress  is

 currently  seeking  to  replace  the government in Baghdad by instigating a

 popular internal uprising and/or military  coup  against  Saddam  Hussein's


     The  reason  Saddam  wants  the  West to resume fighting and/or try and

 overthrow his regime would most likely have to do with  preparing  the  way

 for  Iraq to trigger war in the Middle East.  By provoking Western military

 intervention and/or  staging  an  overthrow  attempt,  Saddam  creates  the

 perfect  excuse for taking seemingly last-resort,  kamikazee action against

 Israel and the West.  This would likely involve,  at the least,  a chemical

 SCUD  attack against Israel {which would 'make fire eat up half of Israel',

 just as Saddam had threatened to do a few months prior to  invading  Kuwait

 (1)}.  Because  such an attack on Israel would stem from apparently blatant

 Western aggression against Saddam's Iraq,  the 'imperialist' West  will  be

 held responsible for the ultimate consequences.

                       -False Peace in the Middle East-

     In  the  context  of a grand strategy by the East to deceive and defeat

 the West,  the current Arab/Israeli peace  talks  should  be  considered  a

 strategic  deception.  The purpose of such a deception would likely be two-

 fold:  1.) to set the stage for a 'surprise' Arab/Israeli war,  and 2.)  to

 insure world war three is blamed on the West rather than the East.

     There are numerous indications that the Arabs intend to make war rather

 than peace.  First off,  the proposals for comprehensive peace recently put

 forth by Syria and Jordan,  two of Israel's  most  steadfast  enemies,  are

 simply  too  unprecedented  and  historically  inconsistent.  They  utterly

 contradict the long-time stated intentions of Arab leaders,  such as  Hafez

 Assad  of Syria,  to annihilate the Jewish state.  They also contradict the

 decades of extraordinary military investments made by  the  Arabs  to  make

 good  on their stated intentions.  Recent evidence that the peace talks are

 a lie comes from Syria's continuing support for terrorist  attacks  against

 Israelis  in  Northern  Israel  and  Southern Lebanon.  Furthermore,  Syria

 continues to buy increasingly sophisticated long-range SCUD missiles  which

 can  be  used for chemical attacks on Israel,  and,  on top of that,  Hafez

 Assad recently signed a 'weapons cooperation accord' with Russia  according

 to  which  Syria  will  receive  billions of dollars worth of sophisticated

 Sukhoi and MiG fighter jets along with top-of-the-line  Russian  tanks  and

 anti-missile systems (2).  If, indeed, Syria were committed to peace rather

 than war, such activity would have ended long ago.

     If  the  peace  negotiations are deceptive,  then the ultimate aim most

 likely involves some form of future Arab surprise  attack.  The  Arabs  may

 very well be planning to reach a comprehensive peace agreement with Israel,

 but  only  to  secure the element of surprise and to get Israel to drop its

 guard.  Specifically,  one important military/strategic aim of an agreement

 might  be  an  Israeli pullout from the Golan Heights- a mountainous buffer

 zone which currently blocks a Syrian breakthrough.  Such a  pullout,  along

 side  an  Israeli  false sense of security,  would make the Jewish state as

 vulnerable as possible to an Arab attack.

     To make sure that the East is not blamed for world war three, the Arabs

 would want to launch an attack against Israel in a way that appears  to  be

 provoked by the West and Israel itself.

     To  start  with,  current  Arab  peace  efforts,  along side increasing

 violence in Southern Lebanon,  may be paving the way for the East to  shift

 blame  on  to  the West for a future Arab/Israeli war.  As the Arabs pursue

 peace,   they  increasingly  appear  to  be  peace-oriented   rather   than

 belligerent.  Meanwhile,  Israel  appears  to  be  increasingly belligerent

 rather than peaceful because stepped-up  terrorist  attacks  have  provoked

 Israeli raids against terrorist factions in Southern Lebanon.  By linking a

 future  war  to  Israeli  action in Lebanon,  the Arabs could significantly

 reverse any blame.

     As is mentioned above,  besides Lebanon,  war could be set-off  in  the

 Middle  East  in a way that appears to be the West's fault by having Saddam

 provoke a crisis with the West and then launch a kamikazee  attack  against

 Israel.  Following  an  Iraqi  chemical attack against the Jewish state- an

 action which would revive memories of Hitler's gassing of the Jews- Israeli

 retaliation  will  be  both  assured  and  severe  (3).  Israel's  military

 response  could,  in  turn,  be used by the Arabs- particularly Syria- as a

 pretense for war that, due to the current peace efforts,  would effectively

 be a surprise.

     All  in all,  by using Iraq,  and possibly Lebanon,  to spawn a primary

 crisis,  the Arabs could launch an attack against Israel and have it appear

 to be the West's and Israel's fault.

     In  the context of a general strategy involving Russia,  the goal of an

 Arab attack against Israel would be its predictable consequence: to get the

 West to use nuclear weapons first.  It is widely recognized that Israel has

 a substantial nuclear arsenal which  includes  nuclear  missiles.  Upon  an

 Arab breakthrough, it is believed that Israel would launch a nuclear attack

 against  its perceived enemies (4).  This,  in turn,  would give Russia the

 excuse it needs to launch a nuclear attack against the  West  and  have  it

 appear  to  be  'retaliation'.  Thus,  because Israel would be quick to use

 nuclear weapons,  Russia may be planning to use a surprise Arab/Israeli war

 as a catalyst for surprise nuclear attack against the West.

        (It  should be noted that a 'surprise' attack entails any attack

     that is unexpected.  In the context of today's apparent 'New  World

     Order'  involving East/West and Arab/Israeli peace and cooperation,

     both an Arab/Israeli war and/or a global  East/West  war  would  be

     unexpected  and effectively a surprise at present regardless of the

     crisis or crises that may serve as a pretense for war.)

                        -The Balkans and the Caucasus-

     Besides the Middle East,  it appears that Moscow  may  use  the  Balkan

 and/or Caucasian regions as flash-points for world war three.

     On a general level,  disintegrating the Soviet Union has opened the way

 for a rising tide of nationalism  and  ethnic  warfare.  What's  more,  the

 perception  of  a  debilitated and militarily weak Russia opens the way for

 strong Western military intervention the world over.

     By fostering nationalist trends and ethnic conflicts  in  the  Balkans-

 principally  Yugoslavia-  and  Caucasian  countries-  such  as  Armenia and

 Azerbaijan,  Russia may be seeking to provoke Western military intervention

 that can be linked to the outbreak of world war three.  In this way,  blame

 for global war can be shifted as much as possible on to West.

     The focus on these regions would likely have to do  with  the  ease  of

 pulling  the local NATO members into large-scale war.  Both the Yugoslavian

 and Armenian/Azerbaijan conflicts currently underway can be escalated  such

 that  regional  war will breakout involving,  at the least,  Turkey- NATO's

 critical East-West linchpin.  This can easily be used  as  a  pretense  for

 general war between the East and West.

     That  Moscow  is  planning  to use the Balkan and Caucasian regions for

 flashpoints is indicated by inconsistent policies  and  the  statements  of

 Russian officials.  With regard to Yugoslavia, even though Moscow signed an

 agreement  for an international embargo on arms shipments to Serbia,  it is

 still supplying large quantities of arms to its ex-ally (5) (Serbia is  the

 principal  belligerent  in  the  Yugoslavian  war).   Furthermore,   Sergey

 Yastrzhemskiy,  director  of  the  Russian  Ministry  of  Foreign  Affairs,

 recently  warned  that the situation in the Balkans could lead "to a global

 explosion fraught with the danger  of  a  third  world  war"  (6).  In  the

 Caucasus,    Moscow's    calls   for   a   diplomatic   solution   to   the

 Armenian/Azerbaijan conflict has been contradicted by policies  which  have

 armed the local populations.  Also, last May, General Yevgeny Shaposhnikov,

 commander of the CIS (ex-Soviet) army,  warned that foreign intervention in

 the region "could bring the world into  the  third  world  war"  (7).  More

 specifically, the mutual security arrangements of the CIS are arranged such

 that,  should  Turkey  intervene  in  Armenia-  something  which Turkey has

 threatened to do on several occasions,  the CIS would be  pulled  into  war

 against Turkey and, in turn, NATO.

               -The (Open) Rise to Power of the Russian Right-

     Along side underhandedly creating war in and around the Middle East, it

 would  be  strategic for Moscow to instigate political turmoil and possibly

 civil war in Russia before launching an all-out attack.  From  such  chaos,

 Moscow  could  stage  an  open  rise to power by Russian neo-facists,  more

 commonly referred to as the "Russian Right".

     If,  indeed, the East has been pursuing a grand deception over the past

 several years,  then it is likely that Gorbachev's rise to  power  in  1985

 entailed  a  dramatic  ideological shift to the political right rather than

 the left.  At first this may seem hard to believe, but, indeed,  going into

 the  1980's,  it  was  well-recognized that a shift to the right was taking

 place at the top in the Soviet Union {for instance, see: Alexander Yanov's,

 'The Russian Challenge and the Year 2000' (8)}.

     The Russian Right is the  ultimate  form  of  facism.  It  is  centered

 around an ideology that paints Jews  and  Westerners  as  satanic  elements

 conspiring  to  overtake Russia and the world.  Consequently,  Russia has a

 messianic calling to wage a merciless  war  against  Israel  and  the  West

 before   the   world   is   completely   controlled   by   evil   "zionist"

 (Israeli/Jewish)  and  "freemasonry"  (Western/liberal-democratic)   forces

 (purportedly  by  the year 2000).  Through this war Russia will fulfill its

 destiny of saving (dominating) the world and establishing a global  kingdom

 of  god  (dictatorship  of man).  The pseudo-Christian underpinnings of the

 Russian Right brought about a strong alliance between Rightist elements  in

 the government and leaders in the Russian Orthodox Church.  In other words,

 with the emergence of the Russian Right,  the ideology surrounding Russia's

 historical messianic complex shifted from Communism to Orthodoxy. (9)

     There were numerous indications that Gorbachev led a rise to  power  by

 the  Russian  Right.  First  off,  Gorbachev's  background in the Komsomols

 (Young Communists) involved participation in anti-semitic activities  under

 Stalin  (10).  It was these anti-semitic programs which were the roots from

 which the Russian  Right  emerged  {especially  in  the  context  of  Young

 Guardism  (11)}.  Since Gorbachev eventually became a leading figure in the

 Komsomols,  there is reason to believe he was involved in the emergence  of

 the  Russian Right (12).  His remarkably fast rise into the Politburo under

 Brezhnev (Gorbachev was only 50 when he entered the Politburo  whereas  the

 average  age of a member was over 70) indicates he was tied to an extremely

 powerful movement which,  at that time,  would have most  likely  been  the

 Right.  During  the 1970's,  the Russian Right was seeking to bring about a

 top-down  revolution.  By  achieving  power  at  the  top,  the  neo-facist

 ideology  of the Russian Right could be spread downward to the people (13).

 This is exactly what happened under Gorbachev.

     Soon after  Gorbachev  came  to  power  and  initiated  his  policy  of

 Glasnost, or openess, the neo-facist ideology of the Russian Right began to

 be   introduced   to   the  Russian  people  through  supposedly  grassroot

 organizations which were,  in  fact,  created  and  financed  by  the  KGB.

 Probably the ultimate example of this is an organization called 'Pamyat'.

     Pamyat  was  underhandedly created by the Soviet government and the KGB

 supposedly  as  an  independent  organization  devoted  to  renovating  and

 restoring  Russian  monuments,  museums,  historical  sights,  and Orthodox

 Churches (14).  Quickly,  however,  it transformed into a leading front for

 the  spread  of  Russian  neo-facism.   Pamyat  and  its  activities  under

 Gorbachev could be tied to the  KGB,  high-level  elements  of  the  Soviet

 military,  and  the  Central  Committee  of the Central Party of the Soviet

 Union  (CPSU).  In  fact,  there  were  indications  that  Yegor  Ligachev,

 Gorbachev's  right-hand  man,  and  Raisa Gorbachev,  Mikhail's wife,  were

 directly involved with  Pamyat  (15).  Furthermore,  in  1987,  Gorbachev's

 closest  Politburo ally,  Boris Yeltsin (!),  held an extraordinary meeting

 with Pamyat leaders (16).  Following this meeting Pamyat was  permitted  to

 use   government   buildings   for   meetings   and  other  activities-  an

 unprecedented privilege.  Further indicating  Pamyat's  connection  to  the

 government,  at  the  1990 Revolution Day parade in Moscow's Red Square the

 military and police kept all groups of demonstrators at least a  mile  away

 from the parade  area  except  for  Pamyat  (17).  Furthermore,  that  year

 Gorbachev  appointed  two  people to his 13-member presidential council who

 were believed to be members of  Pamyat  (18).  One  of  those  individuals,

 Valentin   Rasputin,   advocated  that  Russian  Jews  ought  to  be  tried

 collectively for the murder of Jesus (19).

     The  linkage  between  Pamyat  and the Soviet power structure indicates

 that the Russian Right came to power with the rise  of  Mikhail  Gorbachev,

 but  an  open  rise  to  power by Russian neo-facism and an apocalyptic war

 launched against the  West  will  likely  be  carried  out  by  a  Vladimir

 Zhirinovsky.  Vladimir  Zhirinovsky  is  the leader of a party misleadingly

 called the Liberal Democratic Party.  He was recently quoted as saying:  "I

 am  the  Almighty.  I am the tyrant.  I will follow in Hitler's footsteps."

 (20)  His  purported  goals  are  the  same  as  Pamyat's,   including  the

 restoration of the Byzantine empire of the East.

     Zhirinovsky  is  evidently  an  agent  of  the  KGB.  A  recent outside

 investigation of the 1990 August coup in Moscow has uncovered documents and

 evidence which establishes direct links between Zhirinovsky,  the KGB,  and

 the  CPSU  under Gorbachev (21).  Furthermore,  the evidence indicates that

 the Liberal Democratic Party effectively does not exist.  Since Zhirinovsky

 supposedly received six million votes and came  in  third  in  the  Russian

 presidential  elections  won  by  Yeltsin,  the  indication  is  that those

 elections were,  in fact,  a fraud (22).  Overall,  the indication is  that

 Zhirinovsky   is   KGB  and  Gorbachev  and  Yeltsin  are  involved  in  an

 unprecedented, global-scale deception.

     It appears that Zhirinovsky was created to carry out the dirty work  of

 the  Russian  Right.  He  could  prove to be the key player in launching an

 all-out Russian attack against the West.  To understand how and why this is

 so one must first consider the 1991 August coup in Moscow.

     There is good reason to believe that the  August  coup  in  the  Soviet

 Union  was  a  staged deception.  To understand why,  simply consider that,

 during a 'hardline' coup in the  largest  military  dictatorship  in  world

 history,  it  would  be  unlikely  that the supposed main opposition- Boris

 Yelstin and his counterparts-  would  go  unarrested  or  unkilled.  It  is

 outright  absurd to believe that this opposition could get away with making

 speeches and rallying popular support to undo the coup in  the  streets  of

 Moscow.   Yet,  this  is  supposedly  what  happened  (23).  Realistically,

 however,  the main opposition would be the first thing to go in a  hardline

 coup  involving  the  strategically-minded KGB and Soviet military.  All in

 all,  the August coup may have been nothing but  a  deception  and  Mikhail

 Gorbachev,  Boris Yelstin,  and the rest of the 'ex-communist', 'ex-Soviet'

 leadership,  have always been and will likely always be 'hardliners'  whose

 intent is world domination.

     The  1991  coup  had  a notable peculiarity which may portend a future,

 bogus coup which Moscow may be planning to  stage  prior  to  launching  an

 attack  against  the  West.  Following  the  August coup,  the Soviet press

 emphasized how Gorbachev's 'briefcase' fell into the hands of the  supposed

 hardliners who threw the coup.  This briefcase reportedly carried the codes

 which  are  used  to  launch the Soviet Union's nuclear missiles.  In other

 words,  it was made clear to the world how the coup could  have  led  to  a

 nuclear war launched by radical hardliners. (24)

     Prior to launching a third world war,  it would be strategic for Moscow

 to stage a rise to power by the Russian  Right.  First  off,  such  a  move

 would  be  necessary  to maintain the consistency of the overall deception.

 Yeltsin's Russia,  like Gorbachev's  Soviet  Union,  has  been  painted  as

 progressive  and  peace-oriented.  Thus,  prior to launching a war,  Russia

 would want it to appear that radical hardliners are in power.  This way the

 world won't pick-up on the overall deception that's been  underway  or  the

 premeditated nature of Russia's attack.

     By  maintaining the overall deception,  Russia's 'true' leaders will be

 able to sidestep blame and, more importantly, they'll eventually be able to

 achieve popular world control.  Following an all-out offensive against  the

 West  and  military  campaign  to dominate the world,  Russia would want to

 stage a bogus  'return'  to  power  by  what  have  been  made  out  to  be

 progressive,  peace-oriented  leaders-  especially Mikhail Gorbachev.  This

 way military control of the world can be  reinforced  by  popular  control.

 Instead  of realizing how Gorbachev and his associates were responsible for

 world destruction,  people will believe these leaders saved the world  from

 ultimate destruction by Russian extremists.

     It  seems  clear  that  Vladimir  Zhirinovsky is the openly neo-facist,

 hardline leader that Moscow is planning to bring  to  power  for  launching

 world  war  three.  The  stage  is  being  set  so  that  his rise to power

 parallels Hitler's rise to power in the Weimar Republic of  Germany  during

 the  1930's.  Over  the  past couple of years,  Russia has been transformed

 into a what's  supposed  to  be  a  fledgling  democratic  nation  with  no

 democratic  heritage  suffering  from  increasing  political  and  economic

 disintegration.  This,  of course,  was what the Weimar Republic of Germany

 was like.  Now,  a neo-facist dictator, Vladmir Zhirinovsky, can be carried

 to power out of popular frustrations.  This,  of  course,  was  how  Hitler

 found  his  way  to  the  top.  Once  Zhirinovsky's is supposedly placed in

 charge,  possibly through some sort of bogus palace  coup  against  Yeltsin

 (keep in mind it is all staged and Gorbachev,  Yeltsin, and the powers that

 be are simply engaging in large-scale political deception),  he then can be

 used to launch a world war; again, 'following in Hitler's footsteps'.

     The  reason  that  Moscow  would stage a shift to the right in a manner

 which parallels the rise of facism in Germany during the 1930's is that  it

 makes the overall deception more believable.  Nevertheless, the connections

 between  Gorbachev,  Yeltsin,  and  the  Russian  Right,  as  well  as  the

 connections between Zhirinovsky, the KGB, and the CPSU as it were,  make it

 clear  that  neo-facism found its way into the Russian power structure long

 ago.  What's taking place at present and what occurs in the future has been

 preplanned and is bogus.

     That  an  open  rise  to  power  by  the  extreme  right  and  Vladimir

 Zhirinovsky will be used to make way for an all-out war against the West is

 made clear by the super-belligerent threats Zhirinovsky  has  been  making.

 First  off,  Zhirinovsky is calling for the forceful reestablishment of the

 pre-1917 borders of the Czarist Russian empire.  Furthermore,  he has vowed

 to wage a third world war against the West in Yugoslavia, the Caucuses, and

 the Middle East.  Lastly,  and most importantly,  Zhirinovsky recently made

 his  first  international  diplomatic  trip.  He  went  to  Baghdad,  Iraq.

 Zhirinovsky  has  pledged  to  support Saddam Hussein in waging war against

 Russia's and Iraq's common enemies of the West,  Israel,  and Turkey.  What

 is more, Zhirinovsky has stated that he will not hesitate to use weapons of

 mass destruction in that effort. (25)


     All  in  all,  by  underhandedly provoking war in and around the Middle

 East along side staging a radical power  shift  to  the  extreme  right  in

 Russia,  Moscow creates the ideal scenario for fighting and winning a third

 world  war  against  the  West.  By  instigating  the  collapse  of  Soviet

 Communism and pursuing world peace over the past several years,  Moscow has

 secured surprise and duped the West into dropping its guard.  This has also

 made it possible to frame the Western powers  such  that  world  war  three

 appears  to  be  their fault.  Lastly,  the way has been opened for Russian

 Orthodoxy  to  replace  Communism.   Now  with  the  West  vulnerable   but

 aggressive,  Moscow can underhandedly provoke Western military intervention

 at various flashpoints of a third world war.  Principally,  the West can be

 pulled into conflict in the Persian Gulf (Iraq),  the Balkans (Yugoslavia),

 the Caucuses (Armenia/Azerbaijan),  and  the  Middle  East  (Arab/Israeli).

 Meanwhile,  an open rise to power by Russian neo-facists can be staged such

 that Moscow can launch its attack without exposing the  overall  deception.

 Suddenly  faced  by  the  militant  dictator Vladimir Zhirinovsky,  Western

 military action in and around the Middle East can be used as an excuse  for

 all-out war, including a massive nuclear strike against the West- likely in

 response  to  a  last-ditch  Israeli nuclear attack during an Arab overrun.

 After the dust settles,  the West will have been utterly  defeated  by  the

 East from an attack which came as a complete surprise.  What is worse,  the

 horrific war will be blamed on the imperialistic efforts of the West rather

 than the guilty East.  The stage will  be  set  for  Mikhail  Gorbachev  to

 'reemerge'  to  power in Russia.  Orthodoxy can be established in the place

 of Communism and Gorbachev can declare himself world savior.  Thus,  Russia

 will have achieved both military and popular dominance of the world.

     As for Saddam Hussein,  the reason for his seemingly irrational,  self-

 sacrificial  actions  thus  far  would  finally  become clear.  Through his

 cooperation with Moscow,  Saddam may eventually achieve both  military  and

 popular  dominance  in the Moslem world.  If events generally proceed as is

 spelled out above, then, after the dust settles,  Saddam would emerge as an

 ultimate hero of the Arab and Moslem people.  Just as it appeared to be all

 over  for him,  Saddam managed to completely turn circumstances around such

 that utter defeat was brought to his 'imperialist'  enemies  of  the  West:

 Israel,  America,  and  the  Western allies.  Thus,  Saddam will be able to

 establish popular dominion over  Persia  and  possibly  the  entire  Moslem

 world.  Saddam's  power  will likely be reinforced by his central role in a
