Terror Attack In Moscow Is US/NATO’s Revenge For Losing Its Proxy War Against Russia In Ukraine – OpEd


The terrorist attack near Moscow on March 22 in which 140 people were killed by four gunmen was claimed by a radical Islamist group. But the bigger picture indicates the assault was organized by the United States and its NATO allies.

For a start, the suspects were caught while fleeing to Ukraine, which implicates the Ukrainian regime and its NATO sponsors as the masterminds behind the atrocity.

The Western governments and media have been quick (one might add, too quick) to lay the blame entirely on the Islamic State network based in Afghanistan. The shooters may have professed allegiance to this network. But that is a charade to divert attention from the real culprits – the United States, NATO, and the Ukrainian fascist regime.

In this interview, Bruce Gagnon discusses the long and sordid history of Western states deploying terror groups claiming Islamist tendencies as a proxy for their regime-change operations and other dirty wars. This is despite Western declared aims of “fighting terrorism”.

Gagnon says the terror attack near Moscow was motivated by revenge of the United States and its NATO allies against Russia over the loss of the proxy war in Ukraine. It cannot be overstated how disastrous that defeat is for the NATO axis.

He points out that the proxy war in Ukraine against Russia is only one part of a bigger, global confrontation by the U.S. for Western hegemony. Ukraine is the most immediate site of struggle. But it is only a battlefield on a global scale. What is going on is an existential struggle for the survival of the Western neocolonialist empire of U.S.-led capitalism against the emergence of a fairer, multipolar world order.

Defeating Russia in Ukraine is vital for the Western imperialists. Not defeating Russia on this battlefield is forcing the Western imperialists to resort to terrorism and other dirty tricks which they know all too well.

Gagnon notes that the building of a new NATO base in Romania on the Black Sea which will be the biggest base in Europe as well as the increasing U.S. militarization of the Korean Peninsula are important fronts in a global project of aggression and war by the United States and its imperialist partners towards Russia, China and any other perceived rival.

The increasing war footing by the United States and its Western partners is consistent with a fascist control of Western states, says Gagnon.

    “The terrorist attack near Moscow on March 22 in which 140 people were killed is US/NATO’s Revenge for losing its Proxy War against Russia in Ukraine” says the author. It is Not likely to be true especially during the election period all over! However, the terrorist attack responsibility has been claimed by a radical Islamic State group or IS for the Crocus City Hall attack and posted video evidence.
    Whatever their intentions if realistic, potential trigger reactions from either side can be offensive and dangerous. It is precisely this action–reaction phenomenon that fuels conflicts. Russian officials have claimed, without evidence, Ukrainian involvement. Hopingly Truth shall come out sooner or later.
