Chessmaster plays pawn to Western policy’s design on Putin’s Russia
June 1, 2012
With the “official” publication of the 2012 Bilderberg attendees, meeting secretly now in Chantilly, Virginia, perhaps the most notable attendee, apart from the regulars, is Russian chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, widely considered to be the all time greatest chess player, later defeated by IBM’s Deep Blue.
Since retiring from chess in 2005, Kasparov has become perhaps the most vocal opponent of once-again President Vladimir Putin, as the founder of the United Civil Front and the best known leader of “The Other Russia,” a Putin-opposition coalition. Kasparov aspired to run for president in 2008, but failed to qualify. He has led numerous protests and been repeatedly arrested in his bid to oppose Putin.
In the real world, Kasparov is a clear de facto puppet of Western opposition to Putin. Back in 1991, he was awarded the “Keeper of the Flame” by the Century for Security Policy (an organization founded by Frank Gaffney Jr. of the Project for a New American Century), typically reserved for American neocon defense policy wonks, including Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Gingrich and Caspar Weinberger. Kasparov is allegedly still connected with the organization. Former Vice President Dick Cheney, a fellow winner of the “Keeper of the Flame” award, dangerously attempted to provoke Russia into wider war during the South Ossetia conflict of 8/8/2008, according to reports.
Following Kasparov’s arrest after protesting back in 2007, Vladimir Putin, the target of the protest, wittingly observed in an interview with TIME magazine, “Why did Mr. Kasparov, when arrested, speak out in English rather than Russian? When a politician works the crowd of other nations rather than the Russian nation, it tells you something.” Clearly, Kasparov spoke English for the same reason he toured American media outlets in the name of his cause– because he is quietly backed by little else than U.S. policy interests. His backing from within the Russian population is minimal.
Kasparov is meeting now with the elusive and notorious Bilderbergers under the guise of discussing “the Future of Democracy, Russia, China and the Middle East,” according to the group’s official website. Clearly, any winning strategy to defuse Putin’s power and destabilize him is desired. The implications for inflaming tensions with Russia are clear– and stark.
Recent opposition to Putin’s 2012 re-election, including loud cries of voter fraud, were stoked by the West, while the U.S. was essentially caught meddling in the elections. Shortly afterwards, Russian opposition leaders were seen meeting with the new U.S. Ambassador to Russia, again demonstrating the close links between the opposition and American interests.
Among them was one Boris Nemtsov, a former Deputy Prime Minister in Russia, closely linked with Garry Kasparov in their mutual effort to oppose Putin, and widely criticized for his role as a Western puppet. Here is historian and economist Webster Tarpley, who has gone a long way to expose phony color revolutions covertly backed by the U.S. & co. across the world.:

While there is much to criticize about the reign of Vladimir Putin, sitting blind to soft-coups by the U.S. to destabilize him serves no one’s interests. In fact, the risk of wider war, or a return to Cold War tensions at any level is dangerous and potentially very deadly.
However, for geopolitical strategists like the notorious Zbigniew Brzezinski, and the Western-driven globalist cabal he serves, (i.e. the big powers at Bilderberg), Russia has always been the endgame for American foreign policy, long moving towards “encircling” the great bear in a ‘strategy of tension’ and attempting to dominate them on the grand chessboard– a terrain that Garry Kasparov knows all too well…
While precise information on Kasparov’s discussions at Bilderberg will not emerge until, at best, after the meeting has concluded, the general theme is clear: Checkmate Putin, please.
