The Perestroika Deception

Have you read Sun Tzu? I'm guessing not.
Anatoliy Golitsyn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "In his book Wedge - The Secret War between the FBI and CIA (Knopf, 1994), Mark Riebling stated that of 194 predictions made in New Lies For Old, 139 had been fulfilled by 1993, 9 seemed 'clearly wrong', and the other 46 were 'not soon falsifiable'.[15]
According to Russian political scientist Yevgenia Albats, Golitsyn's book New Lies for Old claimed that 'as early as 1959, the KGB was working up a perestroika-type plot to manipulate foreign public opinion on a global scale. The plan was in a way inspired by the teachings of the sixth-century B.C. Chinese theoretician and military commander Sun Tsu, who said, 'I will force the enemy to take our strength for weakness, and our weakness for strength, and thus will turn his strength into weakness.' Albats argued that the KGB was the major beneficiary of political changes in Russia, and perhaps indeed directed Gorbachev. According to her, 'one thing is certain: perestroika opened the way for the KGB to advance toward the very heart of power [in Russia].'[16]. It has been said that Mikhail Gorbachev justified his new policies as a necessary step to 'hug Europe to death', and to 'evict the United States from Europe'. [17]"
