On September 19, 2000, going on 16 years ago, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard of the London Telegraphreported:
“Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe. It funded and directed the European federalist movement.
“The documents confirm suspicions voiced at the time that America was working aggressively behind the scenes to push Britain into a European state. One memorandum, dated July 26, 1950, gives instructions for a campaign to promote a fully fledged European parliament. It is signed by Gen. William J. Donovan, head of the American wartime Office of Strategic Services, precursor of the CIA.”
The documents show that the European Union was a creature of the CIA.
As I have previously written, Washington believes that it is easier to control one government, the EU, than to control many separate European governments. As Washington has a long term investment in orchestrating the European Union, Washington is totally opposed to any country exiting the arrangement. That is why President Obama recently went to London to tell his lapdog, the British Prime Minister, that there could be no British exit.
.. ricordando come documenti declassificati al riguardo erano stati commentati da Ambroise Evans-Pritchard sul Telegraph ancora nel 2000. Per gli USA controllare un unico organismo sarebbe stato molto piu' facile che controllare tanti diversi stati separatamente.
Martin Armstrong aggiunge alla narrazione in questi giorni:
The new conspiracy theory running around claims that the European Union was a CIA project. This serious distortion misses the entire point. It is very true that the idea of the EU was supported by the United States since World War II including the CIA. However, the U.S. supported the idea of the EU as a trade union that could support NATO during the Cold War.
Si, e sicuramente vero che la CIA supporto' l'idea dell'Unione Europea, dice Armstrong, ma la loro idea era quella di una semplice unione commerciale che potesse supportare la NATO durante la Guerra Fredda.
However, the idea of federalizing Europe came, not from the United States, but from France. It was de Gaulle who blocked Britain from joining the EU because he wanted France to dominate Europe. It was de Gaulle who broke Bretton Woods by buying up dollars and redeeming them for gold to make France the economic power of Europe. Britain was only allowed to join the EU upon de Gaulle’s death.
L'idea di federare l'Europa invece venne da Dea Gaulle. Fu lui che blocco' la strada all'ingresso nella CEE all'Inghilterra, questo semplicemente perche' voleva che fosse la Francia a dominare la nuova creatura.
Fu De Gaulle che porto' alla rottura il sistema monetario internazionale deciso a Bretton Woods nel 1944, e lo fece chiedendo il cambio in oro dei dollari americani della Fed durante gli anni '60 (e come sappiamo bene, a ferragosto del 1971 Nixon ..).
Solo dopo la morte di De Gaulle fu permesso all'Inghilterra di entrare nell'Unione Europea.
The idea of federalizing Europe was a dream inspired by de Gaulle. This is the origin of the idea that war could be eliminated if there were only one government. That never could have been spoken in real public settings because the differences within Europe ran deep and bitter following two world wars. The Treaty of Rome was to prevent a third European war.
The idea of transforming the EU from a trade union to an economic union was given birth at the Plaza Accord in 1985. That was the brainchild of James Baker to create a viable alternative to the US dollar. That is when the euro was born conceptually.
L'idea di creare una valuta unica europea fu virtualmente parto della mente di James Baker, durante gli incontri passati alla storia come Plaza Accord, per creare un'alternativa al Dollaro.
The commission attended our WEC in London and I spoke directly with them at the time. I warned this would result in the collapse of the euro system unless they consolidated the debts. I was told they could not sell that to the European people so they would push for the currency first and later deal with the debt problem. Of course, phase two never came.
The euro cannot survive with such a structure. You have people like Martin Schultz now pleading that the problem is not a central power, but Europe needs to surrender all sovereignty to Brussels.
Armstrong ebbe modo allora di parlare con tutti loro e consigliarli e, dice lui, li avverti' sin da allora che se non fossero pero' stati consolidati i debiti rispettivi paesi il tutto sarebbe collassato (era il 1985). Mi risposero, dice Martin, che non si poteva vendere questa cosa alla gente, che prima avrebbero fatto la moneta unica e poi avrebbero pensato ai debiti (!). Ovviamente la fase due non arrivo' mai.
By 1990, Maggie Thatcher was warning that “a single currency is about the politics of Europe. It is about a federal Europe by the back door.” (November 22, 1990).
As everyone knows, I was friends with Maggie. I was there through all these machinations. This was BY NO MEANS a CIA plot. The desire for NATO and an EU was in the interests of the United States following World War II and the CIA — absolutely! But do not mix that with the state of the EU today and the attempt to federalized Europe. That is exactly the opposite of U.S. interests for it will lead to the risk of another European war.
You can see war is coming. They were yelling at each other at Davos.
Quindi, si, certo che la CIA spinse e finanzio' la nascita della CEE, ma questo non ha niente a che fare con lo stato dell'UE oggi e il tentativo di federare l'Europa. Questo e' l'esatto contrario degli interessi USA e portera' al rischio di un'altra guerra europea, dice Martin.
