Fatal mistake of the USA. Why Washington fails after defeat

77



What's happening? Why has the terrible and all-conquering American diplomacy suffered one defeat after another? What is the main mistake of the American elite today?

A year ago, America chose a new president. On November 8, the overwhelming majority of Americans went to bed, feeling confident that Hillary Clinton would become the US 45 president. The next morning, the whole world was amazed at their choice, and America itself was shocked in the first place.

US Civil War 2.0. and its effects on the external arena



Today, no one doubts the fact that the contradictions in the American elite have gone so far that it can not be just a "game to the public." Too many problems have arisen in the current US president "thanks to" the American "opposition". And their opposition is too expensive for the country. In fact, any initiative of Donald Trump is taken hostile, and all the steps of the “opposition” are subordinated to only one goal: to overthrow him as soon as possible and not to allow him to lead the country along a different path.

To get their way today, the American elites do not disdain anything, even the help of foreigners. And this is their big mistake. Until now, the Americans were able not to wash dirty linen in public. They resolved all the internal contradictions between themselves, and the outside went out with a single position, which was supported by all the power of the American state machine.

Now we see a completely opposite situation. Opponents of the president not only completely constrain all the foreign policy steps of the country's leader, but also attract foreigners to fight him. This makes any of his steps weak, and often meaningless.

And there is nothing worse in foreign policy than taking meaningless steps. Mistakes, and those better.

Such a policy always ends in failure. That is what we see today. US foreign policy literally crumbled. One defeat follows another. Over the year, the list of Washington’s actual allies was greatly reduced, many plans had to be abandoned or substantially adjusted.

Yes, many countries are not yet ready to leave the United States. They are still afraid of the consequences. But the further, the more they become frightened by the inconsistency in the actions of Washington. As a result, the fear of the Americans begins to yield to the fear of being the last on the sinking ship of American foreign policy. And they ran.

The whole Middle East ran, Europe ran, almost ready to negotiate with Russia and China, Japan and South Korea. The loyalty of the latter has so far been maintained only due to the missile threat of the DPRK, and Washington must pray to God that Kim Jong-un not end his rocket program. No one intends to fight with him, of course, but today UN does better than anyone else to help Washington preserve the loyalty of its key allies in the western part of the Pacific Ocean.

What would happen if Hillary became president

Fatal mistake of the USA. Why Washington fails after defeat


It is probably meaningless to talk about what would happen if 45-m President of the United States would become Hillary Clinton. But we will touch on this topic in order to show that this could only slow down the development of the current adverse processes for the USA, but not prevent them completely.

As we well remember, Hillary Clinton was going to continue the foreign policy course of her predecessor. But after all, it was during his time that many prerequisites were created that turned into problems for the current president.

Middle East Washington began to lose more under Obama. Turkey broke away from the United States, too, with him. Friction with the European allies arose long before Donald Trump occupied the Oval Office of the White House. Yes, the problems under the new president were aggravated, but they themselves arose much earlier and were not the result of Trump's coming to power. It is necessary to recognize that with reasonable and coordinated steps one could smooth out many acute angles of foreign policy and stretch existing problems for decades. But it was still one way. And this end for America was very unfavorable.

Perhaps the main problem of the American elites is that they see the dead-end path of their opponents, and therefore in every way prevent them from following it. At the same time, they do not see their own miscalculations and are not ready to admit that their path is as flawed as that of their opponents.

And perhaps the real “root of evil” is buried much deeper and it is connected with the fundamental problems of the modern American political system.

Why the US was doomed: planning horizons

Geopolitics is like chess. The same squares of territories, figures, battles, sacrifices and victories. The main goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent. And here it is very important to see farther than your opponent. If you see that by winning the opponent queen with the fifth move, this does not mean at all that with the eighth move you do not get the check and checkmate from him.

Detailed and detailed about American political myopia and their consequences can be viewed in the following short video:



Here I will only briefly summarize its main conclusions. The main problem of the USA is not that they made one or several wrong decisions. They cannot win because they are not calculating their steps as far as their opponent. And if, for example, Vladimir Putin sees that the Americans are trying to win the queen from him on the fifth move, he is happy to let them do it, if he is sure that he will checkmate Washington on the eighth.

Of course, this is not always the case. Most of the steps in this game take place in an endless improvement in their positions. But it is precisely political long-sightedness in planning its actions that makes it possible to get away from the enemy’s traps. And those who are not able to calculate the whole chain of the opponent’s moves get into them.

Today, when we see the defeats of Washington in one or another part of the globe, we are witnessing the end of the long-established parties. The main "mistakes" of the USA were made long ago. Back then, when in 1991, they destroyed the USSR and decided that no one else could ever challenge them. Americans focused on their internal disassembly, relaxed ... and lost.

      The USA "took" upon itself not a feasible burden, the world gendarme!

      I think that's not the point. As history shows, the decline of any nation begins immediately, as soon as this nation begins to consider itself above others, declares itself "god-like." So it was Babylon, so it was with the Roman Empire, it was so with the Third Reich, so it will be with the USA ... Pride is the main human sin.

        I think that this is the end of the era of Leonid Ilyich, everything seems to hold on and work somehow, but the understanding that the BBP is prowling somewhere nearby and that something needs to be done is already in the air. But it’s just floating around, otherwise the "ilita" would not have put on Killari, but would have been looking for her Gorbachev.

        Why ALL the capitals of European countries are trodden over with the boots of the conquering soldiers, except London ??
        Because it is an island.
        --------------------
        What is the difference between marine and land psychologies ????
        But here's the thing - Napoleon (land psychology), made plans, how On foot come to English India. 6000 kilometers on foot. What for ?? If in 32's from London, London. That's it !!! 32 km .. but you can’t walk on foot.
        The USA is not just an island. USA is a giant island. The USA is not across the strait, like England. USA over the oceans. Ground aggression against the United States - THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE !! IMPOSSIBLE. In principle, impossible.
        This means that the United States has the opportunity to ONLY attack themselves! And no one can even think - to attack the United States. It's the same as attacking the moon ... on foot wassat or mounted armies lol Attack the moon. Or tank armies wassat attack the moon.
        ---------------
        They say - Japan .. supposedly attacked the United States wassat laughing laughing Yes, with a laugh, tear your stomach. This is the same as if Hitler would attack our Cuba. Well .. or to the Franz Joseph Archipelago. .
        ----------------
        This is the first and Colossal US advantage over the rest.
        ------------
        The second advantage of the United States is that they cleverly converted their position overseas into the position of their dollar. As the only world money.
        For 40 years, the US has a trade deficit. What is their deficit? And here’s what - Over the past years, the United States has been buying 750 billions of dollars MORE than it is selling. Purely printing your dollars. Printed and bought.
        What is 750 billion ?????? And here's what !! The entire population of Russia CONSUMES ALL GOODS AND SERVICES PER YEAR for 250 billion.
        So! USA for a GIFT .. receive three times more than all the people of Russia in a year! This is purely their fat, This is a Tribute that the rest of the world pays them.
        ----------------
        So who is trying to get the United States here ??
        The United States may topple ONLY THE LORD GOD himself!

            Sea powers (England, USA) act completely wrong!
            Firstly, the fleet! The fleet is all with them.
            Secondly - They ALWAYS LEVEL the land powers among themselves, and so gradually establish bridgeheads on land. Leisurely. Over the centuries. And they always get involved at the end of wars.
            Their bridgeheads are countries like France, or (now) Japan, or Italy. Dependent countries. They don’t have to cross the ocean. They crossed it a long time ago. Their fleet is already here. Long. But off the coast of the USA there is NO ANYTHING fleet. There is not a single bridgehead.

            While the United States accumulated gold, Russia already 2 times at zero it was lowered in 17 and 91.

            So while we accumulate gold again, another Kerensky or Yeltsin will come and steal everything.

    It’s hard to say what the US fatal mistake is. There is a whole range of errors from different angles and in different aspects. In short, I would formulate this: they decided to live well, not at the expense of their outstanding talents, but due to the fact that they will do poorly to everyone else. And this can even outweigh the economic and political dependence on them if a strong opponent appears. And he appeared - two-headed (Russia and China).

          It can be confirmed with figures - multi-billion dollar arms contracts with Saudi and Qatar, of the latter - an agreement with China for the supply of gas from Alaska, with supplies close to the Power of Siberia (project cost $ 43 billion 27,6 billion cubic meters against our 38 billion cubic meters in year). An agreement with Emirates Airline for the supply of 40 Boeings. The agreement is reportedly worth $ 15,1 billion.

              The Power of Siberia gas pipeline, through which Gazprom intends to supply blue fuel to China, has a dangerous competitor. On November 9, during a visit to the PRC by US President Donald Trump, China Petrochemical Corp. and American Alaska Gasline Development Corp. (AGDC) signed an agreement on the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Alaska, which will supply LNG to China.
              The modernization of the LNG plant in Alaska may begin as early as 2019 (the LNG plant, which was opened in 1969 and has a capacity of 1,5 million tons), is now operating there. On the Chinese side, the China Investment Corp (CIC) and Bank of China are also participating in the project. From the West, in addition to AGDC, are ExxonMobil, BP and ConocoPhillips.

                Only Chinese investment in the LNG plant is not even a protocol of intent to buy this gas.

                Everything else - the wet dreams of Trump and Co., his already local CML poured for it, to the fullest.

                Something like this for now ...

                  Luring Chinese investments in its own production, Trump wins on a tactical level, but does not see the whole Great Chinese way (about which the article itself). It is now important for China: a) to keep enterprises already withdrawn from USA with orders and labor at home; b) stake out a stake in enterprises located on the territory of Trump. Actually, they have already laid both parts in the very near future by current agreements. Everyone is jubilant, everyone is happy - the Americans got a momentary profit, the Chinese - they staked out a long-term profit for themselves. There can be no problems for Trump, with a high degree of probability the current contract will be disintegrated by his successor (or the last after two or four terms). What prevents the Chinese from then holding orders for this LNG plant with terminals? To whom, besides Japan, can Americans sell LNG from Alaska? They do not have a full-size analogue of the Northern Route, and Southeast Asia by that time will attach itself to Chinese and other transit (if the Americans are not allowed to be naughty in the Middle East, of course). Similarly with other investments, China now plays a long game, and the Americans go ahead and straight to zugzwang.

    The fact that the United States took over is certainly difficult. But the world chess player also recognized that they are the only superpower on the planet. By assigning (precisely appointing, for in life we ​​always need an enemy to consolidate) enemies, be it viruses, terrorists, the Russian Federation, North Korea and so on - America will inevitably observe its interests (more precisely interests of large corporations with a place of residence). On this way they will be mistaken more than once. But it will be difficult to cross their path. With 2,49% of the global economy, you can win only on the pages of the media.

      But there are no critical defeats in US foreign policy.

      The United States has almost lost the Middle East. Allies, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, are starting to turn away from them. A coalition against the USA is gradually looming: Iran, Russia, Turkey ..
      Europe is frankly dissatisfied with US policy and only inertia and the fear of being left alone with Russia are holding it back from a final break, in any case, "confusion and reeling" has begun. This does not apply to the UK, this will hold on to it until the last.
      The United States also failed to achieve anything in Southeast Asia, in any case, Trump did not take anything from there, on the contrary, the sale of American oil and gas fields began. They are bought by China. Russia has achieved increased investment in the Arctic.

        The United States has almost lost the Middle East. Allies, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, are starting to turn away from them. A coalition against the USA is gradually looming: Iran, Russia, Turkey ..

        But where did you get the idea that the United States lost B.Vostok? They lit it in their interests and everything goes as planned ... As for the coalition "Iran - Russia - Turkey", it does not exist and will not exist, for a simple reason - different interests. Russia climbed into Syria only in order to participate in the partition of this country and grab its share. As for the Arctic, there can be no investment in foreign capital. It would be the desire of this foreign capital to participate in production ... Foreign firms will receive their profits in proportion to their financial investments, which means that Russia's profits will be less than - if they extracted independently ... Such are the victories. Listening to Russian or Ukrainian propaganda is just victories and overpower ...

    They cannot win because they count their steps not as far as their opponent.

    Controversial statement. The United States began helping the nationalists of Ukraine in the 1949 year, and continues to this day. We see the results. In the USSR (Russia), is anyone planning more than 5 years? Where are the programs on 10-20-30 years? In China, by the way, planning has been going on for 100 years. We have, at best, for one presidential term. Where is there to win?
    All that we see is only local tactical successes.

    Strange as it may seem, the Soviet Union was one of the pillars of Western democracy due to its "closeness" and "censorship." Under our "closeness" open western borders looked good. And under our "censorship" it was well possible to drag through our "freedom of speech", in fact, anti-Soviet propaganda and exaltation of our way of life. The ideology of consumption — food, alcohol, jeans, jackets, sneakers — was well dragged through. But then the West wanted to expand its market and at the same time enslave 500 million people to CMEA with their ideology. Our tops easily went to such a convergence with the West, in fact, for empty promises that right tomorrow the USSR would join the "fraternal family of free dashes of the capitalist peoples." Only 20 years passed and the "fraternal capitalist" Russia again ceased to be her own. And the West widely opened its huge jaws over the whole world, not only in the form of wars, but also taking away social conquests along the way, easily swallowed the so-called "middle class", in any case, chewing. In Germany, they are already demanding the abolition of the 8-hour working day, since the mass of "refugees" must be "arbeiten" and "integrated" in the "Deutsche Ordnung".
    PS You got jeans, sneakers, 300 varieties of sausages, Bavarian beer, Western pop and rock discs. Everything I dreamed about. But he received a paid education and medicine, an apartment in a mortgage, unemployment. Are you happy now?

    Interestingly, does Washington know that according to the author, he suffers one defeat after another? It seems to me that this would be news for the USA. If Trump, having come to power, announced the start of an isolationist US policy, and is consistently trying to reduce the US presence in troubled regions, does this mean that we were able to defeat him? Having access to resources, they can just as easily launch a new “offensive” anywhere, but we may just not have enough resources to fend off it. Therefore, hatchery and Khlestakovism may be enough, and you need to soberly assess the situation? Until we have a strong economy, there will be no meaningful defeat for Washington. And our authorities traditionally scored on the economy ...

    Not. In Russian - so that the dog works well on the hunt, keep her hungry. The fat, dumb world mongrel has worked its way. Now China is in favor, ready forging a bowl of rice for the powers that be. Yes, the bugs of the US elite understand that Clinton was necessary to maintain the status quo, it would continue to feed their capitals with the human blood of local wars in the World. But, not only Russia and China, the whole world understood the weakness of the United States and its Achilles heel - this is a dollar that is not saturated with the product, the result. Moreover, it is so easily and uncontrollably produced. And, Trump, an effective puppeteer manager, designed to effectively sell the United States and, no matter how the country elite puffed against, he will do his job. Putin does the right thing - "sit longer on the riverbank and eventually you will see the corpse of an enemy passing by." And even more so, behind his back is the people, the most patient, lulled by football, Petrosyans, nightingales and malachovs ... They still finish their education, and we will have our own pravseks everywhere and in everything. Read "Ruslana and Lyudmila" A.S. Pushkin - everything is said there.

    > The Americans focused on their internal squabbles, relaxed ... and lost.

    Jura is a weak geopolitician, and most importantly, does not study. I already once explained to him why the defeat of the United States was predetermined, provided that there would be no new betrayal of the elites of the Russian Federation, as happened with the USSR.

    The geopolitics of Russia / USSR / RF in the capitalist system was created by V.I. Lenin and set forth in the work "Imperialism as the Highest Stage of Capitalism" and supplemented with a complete system in other works. So, according to these views, the world is divided into closed zones of complete technological cycles of production and at the same time sufficient in size from the point of view of consumption / demand, so that a closed zone of technological reproduction could exist.

    Now this theory is actively used by Khazin, calling them technological zones. So, there is a law of uneven development of these zones, because of which the leader periodically changes, and at the moment of leadership change the internal contradictions of the old leader become insoluble, because there are only different defeat options in which only part of the cash can be saved from this elite countries.
    Due to the fact that everyone can no longer be saved, this struggle becomes antagonistic.

    The USSR was born at the time of the transition of leadership from England to the USA, now leadership is moving from the USA to China

    the fact that Yura is trying to independently analyze this is good, bad, and even very bad, that he believes that serious topics such as geopolitical scenarios can be analyzed on the go, without relying on certain models created by authorities
