The Color Revolution Model: An Exposé of the Core Mechanics

—–

[ Note:  The Color Revolution and Arab Spring phenomenon is one which receives particular attention at CSS, because it is one of the primary tactics used in geopolitics and geostrategy which also relies on a syncretic or interdisciplinary model.  It involves mass psychology, marketing and advertising, sociology, ideology, and a range of other fields. This piece should be understood as a schematic with explanatory annotations and dissection of particular mechanisms.  We strongly recommend this to be read alongside several previous pieces which explore the history, figures involved in developing the theory, and real-world application in the following pieces featured here at CSS –

The Ukrainian Failed State: Analysis of Phase 3

Part 6 in our series

Sunday’s election sees an increase in ‘anti-Russian’ representation in the Rada: US-backed Pravy Sektor and Svoboda pressure on the US-backed Kiev Junta corroborates a Phase 3 plan, as the Kiev Junta may resume major operations.  The US needs to create a failed state in Ukraine to advance its agenda, with Poroshenko getting caught in the middle.  Both sides vie for the 4GW advantage, while being careful to not lose site of reality from the expanding hyper-reality. 

 

A Note to Readers:  This is the 6th installment of a series of related reports on the real underlying methods and framework which characterize the Ukrainian civil war.  These are thorough in exploring and explaining, in as full a way as possible, the most relevant factors which operate upon this phenomenon.  Like our previous works on the subject, this report is approximately 50 pages at about 15,500 words.  In addition to these six reports, there are another dozen or so shorter articles on the subject to be found on our site, as well as about two dozen interviews and podcasts, which can be found either in the multimedia section or embedded in the shorter articles where indicated.  Being familiar with our past reports makes this report more flexible.  A reader is then able to read each chapter as a stand-alone article

 

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the election of Sunday, October 26th, was called by Poroshenko to ostensibly push the government into an even further anti-Russian position.  On the face of it, the election aimed to escalate what has been termed a ‘lustration’ process [1]. This fits well into the common narrative, being that Poroshenko is directly controlled by the US to push against Russia.  While this is true, there is also another more complex dynamic unfolding, which will be explored in this report.

Explaining The Battle For Donetsk Airport

Video: interview with Joaquin Flores – 9 minutes

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-t578x319he Donetsk airport served not a direct military role, but a political one, as Flores explains in this 9 minute piece.  The US was using this airport as a makeshift military base to house the operations of Death Squads.  These Death Squads were going out at night and engaging in murders, kidnappings/abductions, rapes, assassinations, and sabotage.

Pravy Sektor Coup as ISIS Scenario: NATO to Feign a ‘Unilateral’ Alliance With Russia

The US stages a coup ousting Poroshenko and installs Pravy Sektor in order to build international support for a Human Rights intervention against Pravy Sektor and to restore ‘democracy’ and ‘order’; the real aim being to create a failed state, perpetuate indefinite war on Russia’s door and even World War … and beyond

Ukraine & Novorossiya: There Never Was A Ceasefire

 

Reading our analysis of the mechanisms involved in this war, going back to February, reveals our assessment regarding the simulacrum or hyperreality of the NATO vs. Russia proxy effort in the former Ukraine.  In examining the recent example of the ‘Ceasefire’ of early-mid September, we will explain why there never was an actual ‘Ceasefire’, and how this does not represent any kind of failing on the part of Russian strategic thinking nor does it represent any kind of betrayal of the interests of Novorossiya.  Rather, similar to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and the attempt on Syria, the goal of the US is to create a failed state in central-eastern Europe out of the former Ukraine.
