Military Review

Anti-Western Union

33
Mike Pompeo, director of the CIA, recently recalled in a straightforward manner about the US foreign policy strategy: "Russia must be defeated." Many of our friends, in general, demand a head-on response, similar to Russia's strategy: defeat the United States. But in this connection there are other questions: what is considered a defeat and how can it be inflicted? Military defeat, color coup and the change of power to quasi-colonial or something else? What is Russia's foreign policy strategy in general?




Many of our experts believe that Russia does not have a foreign policy strategy: it responds reactively every time to American military-political challenges. There is a grain of truth in this. Russia is today, in contrast to Russia-USSR, in the world financial and economic system, that is, in the American, Western system. It has its advantages and its disadvantages.

Russia acquired its own financial and economic instruments, eliminated the lag in the quality of life that occurred during Soviet times, but is forced to reckon with the rules existing in this system. Anyway, bye. The American sanctions war against Russia is aimed, according to a number of experts, to push Russia out of the world economic system, and thus isolate. Since Russia, defending its interests, attempts, as it were, from within the system, on the dominant position of the West in it. If this happens, Russia will de facto become on this basis the USSR - 2. With the help of the Americans!

On the other hand, if the Russian foreign counterparts Pompeo and Vladimir Putin do not speak openly about the global foreign policy strategy, this does not mean that there is no such strategy. One can only say that it is not formulated publicly and frankly, as Mike Pompeo does.

Suppose we adopt a mirror American strategy: Russia needs to defeat America. At the same time, a direct military clash of nuclear superpowers is considered impossible, since it will end in guaranteed mutual destruction, as well as the destruction of the rest of the world. What then can be considered the defeat of America and the West as a whole?

There is an opinion that the creation of the Anti-Western Union of Non-Western States (gas stations) can be considered a defeat of the West, and, in fact, such a union of states is being created by Russia and China, in fact, although they don’t talk about this directly, like Pompeo.

Russia, China and a number of other states speak about the actual strategy of creating gas stations by euphemisms, when appropriate reasons are given - this is the concept of a multipolar world, and the Eurasian Union, BRICS, SCO and other international organizations, but without the participation of Western countries. It is probably politically wrong now to open the cards ahead of time, to slide down to the level of Pompeo. Articulate the creation and objectives of such a Union directly and officially.

After all, what are, taken together, BRICS, SCO, EAC, CSTO and other similar organizations? In fact, this is the newly created Anti-Western Union of non-Western countries. The assembly point of this Union was Russia as a country with nuclear parity with America, that is, militarily protected, with basic science and a self-sufficient economy — therefore, the United States and the entire West focused on “deterring” Russia: they hit the gas station assembly point. Although they are paying increasing attention to China. Why?

China pursues an increasingly independent economic policy from the West and in critical situations comes to the aid of Russia when unacceptable damage is possible. For example, in the 2014 year, when Obama undertook to “tear the Russian economy to shreds,” China refused to participate in isolating Russia, despite visits to Beijing by US special envoys, and offered Russia loans (Russia refused, but it is important that he offered). It was the Chinese special engineering ship that laid the power cables badly needed by Russia to the Crimea along the bottom of the Kerch Strait.

At the level of government documents, the United States also does not talk about its desire for world domination, but only to leadership. And Russia speaks about a multipolar world, but in the West they understand that this will be for the world: its multipolarity will, in fact, be equal to two.

The “containment” of Russia and the entire non-Western world by the West is today pouring out into various sanction wars, including cultural and sports, economic pressure on Western vassals, to maintain Atlantic discipline, and color coup in the gray zone of the world, using military force or under threat application. In Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq and Ukraine, the “color revolutions” to the West have succeeded.

Russia, in general, keeps the sanctions and "color" blows, and successfully counterattacks in the Crimea, in the Donbas and in Syria. A number of American satellites, such as Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with their dependent position, and are moving toward rapprochement with Russia and China. This contributes to the achievement by Russia and China of their goals in the geopolitical struggle, if we mean by it not a military victory over the West, but the creation of a counterweight to the West - the Anti-Western Union. Its final political and economic design will lead to the geopolitical defeat of the United States and the West as a whole.

The US is trying to split the emerging Anti-Western Union to prevent its assembly from being completed. Russia and China, in response, awaken negative trends in the West. This is an objective standoff, and any elections and presidents, as the Donald Trump phenomenon proves, cannot do anything about it.

The main question today is: for whom does time work? To the West or to the East-Anti-West? Statistics answers it: the economic positions of the USA and the West are weakening in the world.

      On the actual strategy of creating gas stations by Russia, China and several other states say

      As if all creation of gas stations in the literal sense was not limited. Do we have at the helm those who are ready to defend precisely our interests?

        A strange question, which gives rise to ask two questions of the counter - Do you have it? and What interests are yours? I think that if “theirs” like Yeltsin stood at the helm, then there would be no pressure on Russia.

          If you do not mask your IP, we live in the same country. My interests are social justice and prosperity of the motherland. About the so-called "theirs": where are they? Chubais, Kudrin, Faberge Vekselberg and others? In prison? No! All in business. Completeness, sir, and the newly-minted officials left the people and vegetated under the drunkard? Or are French senators being detained in Russia with suitcases of laundered money in Russia? Or the banks did not “burn” in the Cyprus offshore, and then money was not allocated for “help” to them, unhappy, allegedly deceived by the same crooks. Instead of treating sick children for free, rather than being paid off by the whole country to pay for the services of the "agreed to help" clinic in Israel, Germany, Switzerland.
          The real pressure is the situation with the DPRK. And our bureaucrats have property and families abroad. Regarding modern technologies - they have never been transferred before, loans - why do they need us if their "smart" are again taken abroad.
          Great achievement - to hit wells and drive all the resources abroad!
          For the sake of good undercover agents, you can imitate pressure.

            The confusion you have my friend, as in the description of the Borodino battle: - "People mixed up in a bunch of horses ....". Chubais and Kudrin are certainly the nomenclature of Washington, but there is no “Faberge” —the home-grown oligarch. If you are yearning for the first two bunks, then the third one you mentioned is what annoyed you? Well, there, at the dawn of "privatization", it successfully took over government assets, but unlike many, it did not bankrupt these enterprises and did not cut them into scrap metal, after which it went abroad and stupidly devoured the loot. Praised God and factories and jobs. He deducts taxes to the treasury. Eggs redeem and paintings with icons returning them to our museums. Not the most vile person turned out. What now to do? There was such a period in our history. Do not shoot him now for it. You just need to force him to pay not 13% of taxes, but 85% and let him continue to work. The same applies to other "hard workers." Well, at the expense of "sticking wells and driving raw materials abroad," then why not? This is an ordinary product that is bought and steadily replenishes the treasury of Russia. The Japanese are strong in electronics, they trade it because they don’t have our volumes of hydrocarbons. If they were, they would also sell them. Another question is that we need to develop other high-tech industries in order not to depend on hydrocarbons. Although even today they have a share in Russia's GDP of no more than 10%.

      You are my infantile - lost without ideology.
      Modern ideology is simpler than ever - "Take care of your loved ones, relatives, friends, acquaintances" - and you will be happy!
      Western ideology is not "democracy" - Western ideology is indifference!

    Any ideology begins with a romantic dream, ripens inside in the form of fascism, and spills out into aggression and war. It ends is always bad for any country. Crusades, world revolution, 3 Reich, Democracy - all ideologies ended equally. Now is the turn of Globalism. The outcome of the case is clear to sane people.

        Oh, don't “sculpt humpback to wattle!” The English empire just collapsed. Afghanistan, Australia, India and its other smaller fragments gained independence. And where does the ideology. There is no ideology in India, there is an ancient Vedism brought to this country by the Slavs during the ice age.

          So the British empire collapsed, as the ideology of socialism appeared in the world. The peoples were no longer satisfied with what the west imposed. Each ideology is a step forward into an unknown but necessary change in society. On the other hand, there are people who believe that in vain we got off the trees.

            An interesting detail - socialism as a theory was born in England. Oh, everyone was born there, and fascism, and communism, and psychiatry and paper money and the first maniacs - killers and first banks. They have nothing on such a small plot of land, so they come up with everything for us. What kind of entertainers. By the way. feminism and pederasty also from foggy albion.

    Dear Victor! The article and the arguments are correct, and many at VO understand this. There is only one remark: let's adopt an internal political strategy in support of the foreign policy, so that the collective west cannot drive in wedges. And let's call it “cementation of society through improving the quality of its life”. You just understand that it hovering somewhere in the heights and seems to be doing something in the foreign policy field and completely forgets about internal political problems and does not solve them at all! Thus, it also creates a breeding ground for the blows of the West.

        So, the citizens have such a high level .... some of the heads of state enterprises won prizes of 100 lyam for themselves .... here they are just citizens, they have civil rights and freedoms, but are all the rest citizens in our society, having no rights other than the right to remain silent?
        We need ideology, but getting it with social injustice does not work out.

        The only opportunity for today to create a tough police state with full and strict control of the entire system, now the reverse transformation and liberalization of the law is taking place ...

    Nuclear confrontation does not allow a direct collision. Syria has shown that the gap in conventional armaments is also overcome, in some places surpassed. The political and economic field remained. I think here we will win too. And this is not a slogan. Despite the fact that the tools are worse than us, the “pain threshold” is higher. And the country is self-sufficient. Only "parasites" will increase and there will be norms. But it takes political will ...

    In my opinion, today's foreign policy of the Russian Federation is characterized by restraint and balanced responses, both political and military. Which undoubtedly looks like a policy of a stable state. The Western howl against the Russians does not bring the desired result, and the radical, bold measures against the Russian Federation are somehow condemned by the international community, because they do not look democratic, and most importantly they look like quick-fix measures and are greatly inflated by PR, which is not confirmed in practice, in addition, such measures are not just not productive, and sometimes counterproductive, for example, the EU suffers from US-European sanctions against the Russian Federation for the most part than the Russian Federation.

    But even 10 years ago there was a victory in Georgia, Yanukovych ruled the whole of Ukraine, bases in Syria operated and the Syrian army was considered a significant force. Now there is no Saakashvili, but Georgia is still seeking NATO. From Ukraine, only parts remained in the sphere of influence. Syrian bases are not lost, but the country is in ruins and the future is foggy. It reminds not so much of victory as of heavy defensive battles. Will the transition to the offensive time will tell.

    Russia acquired its financial and economic instruments, eliminated the lag in quality of life that occurred during the Soviet era
    As a life, the gap has been eliminated for the oligarchs who robbed the country and their accomplices from power. The quality of life is not determined by the presence of apartments, cars and electronics.
    In general, the whole phrase on the victims of the exam is designed? What are your own tools ?! laughing Rave. And what strategy can thieves have? - How to steal more?

    It is important that the United States rush from side to side. No matter how vile and petty the US strikes are, everything suggests that they cannot oppose anything serious to our country. Time is for us.
    The United States will “crumble” immediately after the other players cease to perceive the United States as a hegemon - “they will lose fear”. But here, too, the United States has trapped itself - the more aggressive they are, the more players will be on our side.

    So it’s clear that everything goes to that a long time ago. US policy is aggression against Russia, pitting it with its neighbors, demoralizing relations with the West, etc. In relation to China - the same thing: trade restrictions, claims policy of pressure, etc. What two states should think here - right, get together and give a solid partner kick! Heartily.
