Seeing CIA-orchestrated Color Revolutions in every protest that breaks out in the Global South is just as paranoid and pathological as the US seeing a so-called “Russian trace” in every one that breaks out in the West.

President Putin cautioned his strategic forecasters last week against wishful thinking in their assessments, which is also relevant to the Alt-Media Community (AMC) as the author explained in his piece about that part of his speech. The AMC’s speculation about Color Revolutions is a perfect example where his advice can be applied, particularly the claim that the latest unrest in Uzbekistan’s Karakalpakstan on Friday was allegedly a manifestation of the CIA’s weaponization of protests for political ends. The author challenged that populist assessment in his analysis about that incident, but there’s more to say about the subject in general than what was shared in that article.
Seeing CIA-orchestrated Color Revolutions in every protest that breaks out in the Global South is just as paranoid and pathological as the US seeing a so-called “Russian trace” in every one that breaks out in the West. That’s not to say that the CIA isn’t behind some of them or that it can’t shape their dynamics in the direction of its strategic interests, but just that there are many times where such demonstrations are mostly organic and provoked by so-called “trigger events” connected to certain decisions made by the state. In the Uzbek case, this is the report that one of the draft constitutional amendments will remove that autonomous region’s largely superficial right to secede through a referendum.
For the most part, there’s nothing wrong with overestimating an opponent’s capabilities, especially unconventional ones related to orchestrating Color Revolutions. This establishes the scenario’s parameters and enables decisionmakers to understand the socio-political process that might be unfolding. It also ensures that the state has a strategy for dealing with events if they evolve in that direction, both in terms of correcting perceptions about them as well as physically responding to what’s taking place. Moreover, this can also place the incident in a larger strategic context, particularly the New Cold War between the US-led West’s Golden Billion and the BRICS-lPost too long.
