US-Cuba deal 'new front for Russia war': Analyst
US-Cuba deal 'new front for Russia war': Analyst

The United States sees the restoring of relations with Cuba as a “new front in its war against Russia” and upsetting the Russian interests, a political analyst says.

“I think what has gone under the radar as far as the Cuba-America agreement is concerned, a lot of people are taken by surprise, but in fact this is one of the few possibilities that the United States has to actually upset the new Russian order,” Daniel Estulin, author and presenter from Madrid, told Press TV in an interview on Sunday.

Speaking from the White House on Wednesday, President Barack Obama announced the end of what he acknowledged was a decades-long "rigid" policy of isolation of Cuba.

According to Estulin, everything the Western “oligarchy” has thrown at Russia in the last decade and a half has failed.

The West has tried and failed to contain Russia through color revolutions, massacres of children, inflation, putting drugs throughout the country, embargos, wars, regime change attempts, NATO build-up around Russia, oil deflation and currency speculation, the analyst said. “All of that has failed.”

“And again what we are seeing is the only opportunity the United States has for this asymmetrical warfare against Russia that still might win and get the upper hand through Cuba, get at the whole Latin America,” Estulin continued.

“The whole idea of the agreement between Cuba and the United States has very little to do with bringing down this blockade [of Cuba]. It has to do with pragmatism on the part of America’s ruling class, and the idea is to take over what Russia did not take over in its time such as Cuba… and use it as a spear point to destroy Russia’s interests in Latin America.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin is “selling Russian oil and gas only for physical gold and this is called check-mate, ladies and gentlemen, the game is over,” Estulin said. 

“This is something that the Americans understand, and that’s why the decision to reach the agreement is coming right now.

“For example, in the third quarter alone, Russia has purchased 55 out of the 93 tones of physical gold purchased by the central banks of all countries in the world. In other words, more than half of all the gold purchased was purchased by Russia."

The “twist of Putin’s game,” according to Estulin, is that the mechanism for the sale of Russian energy to the West only for gold works regardless of whether the West agrees to pay for Russian oil and gas."

“The suppression of gold prices by the special department of the United States government, called the Exchange Stabilization Fund, with the aim of stabilizing the dollar has been made into law in the United States and that’s something that Russia has flaunted and has found a way around it again by using their natural resources in exchange for gold.

“This is again the key reason why the United States right now decided it needed to open up a new front against Russia and this is the whole United States-Cuba agreement.”

Estulin noted that “the global market for physical gold is extremely small” compared to the market for paper gold; “$360 billion per month are traded in paper gold and only $280 million a month are traded in physical gold.”

“The West has spent as much of its efforts and resources to artificially increase the purchasing power of the dollar and lower oil prices and artificially lower the purchasing power of gold but the problem for the West is that the stocks of physical gold in possession of the West are not unlimited,” he said.

“Russia poses a real threat to the American model of petro-dollar world domination,” he added.

“The question remains how long will the West be able to buy oil and gas from Russia in exchange of physical gold and what will happen to the United States’ petrodollar after the West runs out of physical gold to pay for Russian oil, gas and uranium.

“The answer to this question is the key element of this United States-Cuba agreement. It has nothing to do with openness. It has to do with typical American cynicism, opening up a new front in its war against Russia for the American model of survival,” Estulin concluded.
