A Russian think tank linked to Vladimir Putin has made the claim Islamic State operatives in northern Afghanistan are organizing a large-scale hybrid offensive against Russia through Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The Russians are taking the threat seriously. The director of the Center for Geopolitical Expertise Valery Korovin says Moscow should prepare for a large-scale offensive operations in Ukraine, Armenia, and a number of post-Soviet republics with large Muslim populations. Korovan believes the United States didn’t seize Afghanistan by rigging its military dictatorship in order to build democracy and civil society. This is a springboard for the creation of terrorist networks to be used for aggression against Iran and Russia and threaten financial projects initiated by China. The plan is not new or unique. Similar operations were organized by the CIA, British MI6, and Pakistani intelligence in the mid-1980s. They launched military operations from Afghanistan against civilians and military installations in Soviet-controlled Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. According to a Washington Post article in 1992, an ISIS general said there were dozens of cross border raids into Soviet territory. It’s well-known that then CIA director William Casey supported the raids. Reagan and the CIA put in extra effort to engineer terror. During a visit to secret training camps near the Afghan border in 1984, CIA director Casey told his Pakistani hosts they should take the Afghan war into the Soviet Union. Russia and Iran are at the top of the list of countries New York and London want to redesign from the bottom up in the service of their ultimate objective—a one world government ruled by unelected bureaucrats like those in the European Union and the United Nations. The EU was blueprinted during the reign of Hitler’s Third Reich. Russia, Iran, China, and others are now building alternative financial and trade systems, a move that will eventually kill off the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
