Recently, I have been presenting evidence, from the work of the prodigious researcher, Antony Sutton, that modern Russia was, to a significant degree, established by Americans.
One—and not the only—vector of Sutton’s work was: technology transfers from the US to Russia. His proof was voluminous and specific.
The Russians needed lots of help. They were behind the curve.
Was this help part of a conspiracy? I believe the answer is sometimes yes and sometimes it was just business. Sales, money, profit, greed.
However, during the Cold War, with Russia as America’s enemy, US companies making money from supplying vital technology, which was used to build a war machine in the USSR…we’re talking about deception, crime, traitorous actions.
Today, I just want to publish one of Sutton’s tables, naming the high points of semi-conductor transfers. This vital tech enables the creation of a modern military force.
Two US companies are mentioned: Control Data Corporation (CDC—not the public health agency) and Continental Trading Corp (CTC). CDC as such no longer exists. I find several current companies with names that might or might not be the CTC Sutton refers to.
Here is his devastating chart. It comes from his book, The Best Enemy Money Can Buy.
People who are applauding the current wall to wall bashing of anything Russian ought to know a little thing called history—especially hidden history—counts, and tells its own story.
1951: Semi-conductor developed in Santa Clara Valley, California. From this point on Soviets import chips and then manufacture on a laboratory scale.
1971: “Computer in a chip” development. Soviets still unable to mass produce even primitive semi-conductor devices.
1973: Control Data Corporation (CDC) agrees to supply Soviets with a wide range of scientific and engineering information including construction and design of a large fast computer (75 to 100 million instructions per second is fast even in 1985) and manufacturing techniques for semi-conductors and associated technologies (See Chapter Five).
1977-80: Soviets acquire technology for a semi-conductor plant through the Bruchhausen network and Continental Trading Corp. (CTC). The CDC agreement gives Soviets sufficient information to set up a purchasing and espionage program. CDC told the Soviets what they needed to buy.
1981-82: Commerce Department lax in enforcing export control regulations. U.S. Customs Service makes determined efforts to stop export of semi-conductor manufacturing equipment.
1985: Soviets establish plant for semi-conductor mass production. Soviet military equipment based on this new output.
1986: U.S. taxpayer continues to support a defense budget of over $300 billion a year. Without these transfers Soviet military could not have been computerised and U.S. defense budget reduced.
