France is in an uproar after revelations by Wikileaks that its leaders have been spied upon going back as far as the presidency of Jacques Chirac that began in 1995. This information, coming after last year's revelations that the White House had spied on Angela Merkel, appears to be seen as something of a 'last straw' in the already troubled relationship between Europe and the US.[tag]

RT this morning interviewed a highly respected former French Foreign Minister, Roland Dumas, who made several references to the way Charles De Gaulle would have handled a similar situation. (He was took France out of NATO and developed a French nuclear strike capability.) Dumas lamented that socialist President Francois Hollande did not seem sufficiently 'Gaullist', but I believe it is one more indication that the idea of a long overdue divorce from the US is really beginning to take shape in the minds of its leaders, who know that once they sign on to TTIP, a treaty that will destroy what is left of a welfare system that is the envy of the world, it will be too late.

Not to worry, the other relevant news this morning is about a new Maidan in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. The scenario is immediately clear to anyone who has read Zbigniew Bzrezinski's 1997 book The Grand Chessboard, which lays out plans to detach each of the then Soviet Union's near-abroad countries from Moscow.
Better yet, read a new work by two intrepid California analysts, Natylie Baldwin and Kermit Heartsong, Ukraine Checkmated that brings Zbig's chessboard up-date-with stunning analyses of the Neo-con-made Ukraine crisis, recently reviewed by David Swanson.

Armenia, as well as Georgia - which had its turn in 2008 - are on Zbig's list of countries to be subverted by fomenting 'color' revolutions according to the system elaborated by one Gene Sharp.
According to Peter Lavelle, Washington would appear to be seeking a way out of the crisis it created in Ukraine, as that country's financial situation becomes dire, but not to worry, the next phase of the plan againsst Russia is already up and running in Yerevan.
