    Conspiracy thinking has enjoyed a tremendous vogue in Russia since the fall of Communism for reasons that are too complicated to go into here. Suffice to say that some of this conspiracy thinking as entered the mass media in Russia.

    Libya being the first step in the conquest of Africa is typical of this sort of thinking. Ever since the disasterous effect of Russia’s firesale of state goods in the 1990’s and other poisionous nostrums of Chicago school Economists and the World Bank, many Russians are convinced there is a vast conspiracy to destroy Russia in the West. It is all woo; but it is not surprising.

    The ultimate or near ultimate of such woo is the Russian Formenko who thinks virtually all history before c. 1600 AD is faked, the result of a vast conspiracy to create fake history, documents and even artifacts. The works of Tacitus are frauds, Pompeii was destroyed in the 1630’s, The Peloponnesian War was in the 14th century in Spain. Oh and Christ was a Byzantine Emperor. King John never existed and the Magna Carta is a forgery / fraud. Ivan the Terrible was 4 different men. I could go on and on. Oh and the “West” is constantly trying to destroy / weaken Russia.

    In this milliu the conquest of Africa is pretty minnor woo.
