***The Balkan Trap***
By J. Adams
"If we presume the coming transformation of the Communist Party
into the Russian Orthodox Party of the Soviet Union, we would
obtain truly the ideal state, one which would fulfill the
historical destiny of the Russian people. It is a question of the
Orthodoxization of the entire world."
"The messianic significance of Russia in relation to the West is
beyond doubt. Slavophilism alone can still save the West from
parliamentarism, unbelief, and dynamite."
(Quotes taken from opening page of)
(Alexander Yanov's 'The Russian Challenge and the Year 2000'.)

As the West prepares to take military action against the Serbs, the
world holds its breath wondering what will happen next. For anyone who
knows the truth, however, the future is clear. Western military
intervention in the Balkans is being intentionally provoked by the Russian-
backed Serbs in order to trigger world war three.
The general strategy is to provoke the West into taking military action
against Russia's slavic brethren in order to create a pretext for a
Zhirinovsky coup and massive Russian military aggression against the West.
Notably, Zhirinovsky visited Serbia the week prior to the current
crisis and declared that he would consider any action by NATO against
Serbia an act of war against Russia. More specifically, Zhirinovsky
proclaimed: "if a single bomb falls on Serbia we will consider that an
attack on Russia". Last year I wrote an editorial, entitled "A Time For
War", in which I warned that Russia is setting a trap so that, when Western
military action is taken against the Serbs, "a militant neofacist dictator
can be brought to power in Russia....That dictator- and I'll even tell you
his name: Vladimir Zhirinovsky- can then be used to launch a third world
war against Israel, America, and the Western allies...". Unfortunately,
everyone appears to be ignoring the meaning of my editorials as well as the
implications of "The Zhirinovsky Connection".
The reason I was able to anticipate the crisis the world is currently
being drawn into a year ago is because I believe the world has been totally
deceived. As I see it, ever since Mikhail Gorbachev came to power in the
mid-1980's and introduced his "New Thinking", Russia has been living by its
old thinking in a new and far more dangerous form. One way to explain the
unbelievable reversal in Russia's behavior over the past decade most likely
stems from the "Russian Idea". In his books, 'The Russian New Right'
(1978), and 'The Russian Challenge and the Year 2000' (1987), Sovietologist
Alexander Yanov describes an ideological transformation that was taking
place at the top of the Soviet power structure during the 1970's and early
1980's. This transformation stemmed from Russia's historical messianic
complex. According to the "New Right", Russia's mission is to save the
world from the evils of liberalism and democracy by waging an apocalyptic
war against the West so that a global orthodox dictatorship can be
established. Before doing this, however, communism needed to be overthrown
and the Soviet empire disbanded so that Russia could get back to its
As I see it, when Gorbachev rose to power in 1985, the program of the
Russian Right (Slavophiles), not the Left (Westernizers), began to be
implemented. Gorbachev's "New Thinking", based upon the Russian Idea, was
a long-term plan to bring about exactly what we see today: communism is
overthrown, the Soviet empire disbanded, and, now that the West is most
vulnerable, Russia is about to have Zhirinovsky launch world war three.
After the dust settles and the West is defeated, Gorbachev will
undoubtedly reemerge to power and claim he is saving the world from self-
destruction. A global orthodox dictatorship will then be formed by a man
who is a liar and murderer from the beginning.
The crucial point here is that what we are witnessing is a total lie.
Gorbachev extended Lenin's strategy to defeat the West from "tell them what
they want to hear" to "show them what they want to see". History has been
shaped over the past decade to fit what Westerners *want* to believe:
instead of of communism and dictatorship, there's been freedom and
democracy; instead of an arms race and Cold War, there's been arms
reductions and world peace. Unfortunately, it has all been literally too
good to be true. As KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn correctly anticipated,
we have simply been told 'New Lies for Old' (1984), while "the fundamental
nature and the objectives of the reformed adversary, i.e., the Soviet
Union, have not changed (quote from a letter written to 20/20 in 1992)".
Because the world has foolishly accepted the lies of "The Old Enemy", it is
about to receive the opposite of what is expected: a third world war and
As it stands the West is being provoked into throwing the first punches
of world war three. While Zhirinovsky's rise to power and the outbreak of
global war will appear to stem from, at the least, Western military action
against Russia's historical Serbian ally, let it be clear that this is
deceptive. Countries like Serbia are Russian puppet states, and
Zhirinovsky is KGB. Regardless of what people may *want* to believe, the
West is being framed for triggering world war three, and Zhirinovsky is the
scapegoat for what is truly *Gorbachev's* ultimate crime against humanity.

A provocative example that the Russian Right is behind the
transformation taking place in Russia is the following articles:
Medvedev, A. "Orthodox Church instead of the communist party".
'Moscow News': 1/24/94; p6.
"Moscow Churches will be restored". 'Moscow News': 1/24/94; p14.
The following recent articles are very noteworthy:
Kaplan, Fred. "Russian church, shedding shady past, seeks new
role". 'Boston Globe': 9/27/94; p1.
Stanley, Alessandra. "From Repression to Respect, Russian Church in
Comeback". 'New York Times': 10/3/94; pA1.
One of the most suspicious features of the move to restore the
Russian Orthodox Church in recent years is the renovation and
rebuilding of churches. Even though the Russian government is
supposedly broke (recently it was reported that electricity had
been shut-off to the command & control center of Russia's strategic
nuclear weapons because the military has failed to pay its utility
bills), it has been able to come up with money for a massive
campaign to restore and rebuild Russian Orthodox Churches. In the
Moscow area alone the number of churches has surged from 130 to
600. Clearly this indicates that the transformation to an Orthodox
state is well underway.
