Operation Ares and the Soviet Plot to Plant Marxism in America
In his new book “Disinformation” the highest ranking Soviet intelligence officer to ever defect comes out and exposes one of the biggest plots of the Cold War.
10. On “Operation Ares,” the Soviet plot to build U.S. leftist anti-Vietnam resistance “In 1972, I had a long discussion with Andropov about this operation in his dark, cavernous KGB office, which breathed secrecy from every inch of its thick walls, just as his “Ares” did. “Our ‘Ares’ turned America against her own government,” Andropov started off in his soft voice. It damaged America’s foreign policy consensus, poisoned her domestic debate, and built a credibility gap between America and European public opinion that was wide and deep. Now all we had to do was to continue planting the seeds of “Ares” and water them day after day after day. Eventually, American leftists would seize upon our “Ares” and would start pursuing it of their own accord. In the end, our original involvement would be forgotten, and “Ares” would take on a life of its own. That was how human nature worked, Andropov explained. Our “Ares” would change America forever.”
This is proof positive that the anti-Vietnam / anit-War movement was engineered by the Soviet Union to undermine the Vietnam War for the purpose of building a group of “useful idiots” who would mindlessly and unknowingly fight for the Soviet cause well after the Soviet Union cease to exist.
