Armageddon 2018 of the year: soon on the entire planet

66
Who will win the 2018 battle of the year? Where are those good forces that will save the planet and overcome the chaos spreading around the world? Maybe this is the Chinese? Or is it the Americans? But do old poles matter in a new multipolar world? There is only one way to restore stability in a complex world, which is characterized by inequality of forces and technologies: to abandon confrontation and move to a policy of compromise. But states will prefer war.




Global tendencies are “destructive, dangerous and chaotic”: the growth of intrastate and intergovernmental conflicts, wars, waged by proxy, as well as international threats create “global chaos”, writes V. Sidhu (WPS Sidhu) in the publication "Live Mint".

Mr. Sidhu is a professor at the Center for Global Issues at New York University and a senior nonresident research fellow at the Brookings Institute.

The expert is convinced that the first among intrastate conflicts is the war in Syria and "around it", in which Russia, the USA, Iran, Israel and Turkey participate. It is quite possible "serious escalation" of the conflict.

After the negative predictions made on the eve of 2018, after the publication of the annual World Risk Report 2018 of the World Economic Forum and after discussing global order issues at the annual Munich Security Conference at the highest level, it became clear that 2018 promises to become devastating, dangerous and full of chaos, ”as promised by the forecasters.

Mr Sidhu traced three major global trends, showing why the world is rapidly heading for the abyss.

First, domestic conflicts are intensifying. The expert varies them from urban violence to terrorism, from the seizure of uncontrollable spaces by extremist groups to separatist movements and, finally, the most terrible - civil wars.

These conflicts, in his opinion, are already characteristic of all continents. Mainly in conflicts used shooting weapon, as well as light weapons. However, the use of chemical and biological weapons was observed in some conflicts. In most of these conflicts, the victims were innocent civilians, the author points out.

Secondly, interstate conflicts and wars between regional subjects that are fought by proxy grow. The confrontation of global powers, including the states possessing nuclear weapons, is growing. Among them is “chaos with military intimidation” in and around Syria with the participation of Russia, the USA, Iran, Israel and Turkey, where serious escalation is possible, the expert believes.

Iran and Saudi Arabia collide in a similar way with each other: this happens in Yemen.

In the meantime, China is challenging all the powers that have interests in the South China Sea. Disputes over territories include “various interpretations of international norms and laws”.

Combined with weapons modernization programs and doctrines that allow the use of nuclear weapons, the nature of emerging inter-state conflicts contributes to global chaos leading to a nuclear clash. Indeed, the latest “Nuclear Policy Review” published in the United States caused many to be afraid: what if the “nuclear world” would give way to the “nuclear war” in 2018?

Third, there are many old and new international threats that no single country can cope with. They range from pandemics (for example, recent outbreaks of Ebola and Zika virus), natural disasters (tsunamis and earthquakes), climate change, global criminal networks, international extremist organizations, and cyber attacks spreading across the planet.

The latest UN report on North Korea showed: despite strict sanctions, Pyongyang was able to circumvent restrictive measures thanks to "a complex distribution network that passed through China, Europe, Russia and Malaysia."

Such trends regarding world security are exacerbated by several new factors, which also contribute to global chaos, the author continues.

First, it is the emergence of ultranationalist populist leaders and governments that put their own states at the forefront and challenge globalization as a whole.

Such a nationalist policy led to the fact that some of these states abandoned international agreements and treaties to which they had previously joined. Moreover, many of the nationalist leaders either openly rejected multilateralism and pluralism, or questioned international processes, norms and institutions.

Secondly, the multipolar world as such is slipping into chaos. The modern world is moving towards political, economic, technological and regulatory multipolarity, but at the same time the ability to project power throughout the world (and thereby ensure global security) remains in the hands of one, perhaps two, powers: the United States and China, which is increasingly mentioned as one of the leaders.

Although countries like India can form new rules of global governance, they are not able to enforce them. If the new powers are not able to contribute to global security, then multipolarity will retain its "problematic".

Thirdly, such multipolarity is also manifested in decision-making on most domestic, regional and global issues. This is due to the emergence of many stakeholders in the decision-making process at the national, regional and global levels. These stakeholders, including civil society, the private sector, foundations, individuals and cities, not only give rise to problems, but also support the global confusion with their solutions.

Fourth, the rapid pace of development and diffusion of technology creates the possibility of increasing the influence of individuals, small groups and weak states. This can create asymmetric competition.

Nationalism, multipolarity and multiple stakeholders create, as a result, an “almost insurmountable gap between new technological capabilities and the ability to create norms and institutions to manage them.”

The question of propaganda stands apart. It has always been a "key tool of destruction," the author notes. This has been the case, at least in previous global conflicts. But today there are global social networks. Their activities bizarrely blend objective messages with fake ones. The networks involved the army "trolls". All this opens up the possibility of cross-border influencing millions of people and creates new threats instantly. This is especially noted when they talk about Russia's interference in the US 2016 election of the year.

The tendencies listed by the author indicate that global chaos is approaching a “dangerous phase”.

If you look into history, then you can see only two ways to restore world order. The first is the corresponding leadership and the emergence of statesmen who would like to invest political and diplomatic capital in restoring the world order. It depends on the willingness of key leaders and nations to make compromises and return to cooperation.

The second way is confrontation, which is aimed at strengthening the power of one people through the infringement of other peoples. This approach "often seeks a military solution," indicates Mr. Sidhu, and it is this approach that "often becomes the lot of weak populist leaders with strong armies."

Expert opinion: global trends in 2018 show that the planet is on the second path.

If you read Mr. Sidhu between the lines, it will become clear: by “weak populist leaders with strong armies,” he means Russia. Russia is only incidentally mentioned in his material, but all Western politicians are unanimous about the modernized and dangerous Russian army in a weak Russian economy. And this expert can not be "in trend."

And Russia has already been appointed the main culprit for the coming chaos. Where and by whom? In the White House by Mr. Trump.

The other day, Donald Trump accused Russia of pursuing a policy against US interests and declared a split, disagreements and chaos that could be Moscow’s goal.

“If this was Russia's goal - to create a split, disagreements and chaos in the US, then, with all these hearings in committees, investigations and hatred between the parties, they succeeded beyond their wildest expectations. They burst out laughing in Moscow there, ” wrote American president on Twitter.

Previously, recall, US special prosecutor R. Muller and the federal grand jury accused thirteen Russian “trolls” led by E. Prigozhin of interfering in the election of 2016 of the year.

The idea of ​​appointing a “guilty” person responsible for the chaos in the world has always been attractive to a leading world power: by rushing to point your finger at any “bad guys”, you can sign up as a fair judge and decision maker of the world.

And not without reason tseerushniki with experience count them. American intervention in foreign elections is an acceptable and useful act, sowing democracy and freedom. Russian is not allowed to do anything like that. Just because they are “bad guys” in the language of the scouts.

    Now we are appointed to blame ... by definition, Russians and Putin.
    We will have to learn to live with it and use this bugbear to our advantage to the fullest.
    The games of bright democracy are over ... gray days begin for survival in the jungle of world politics.

          Let me correct you. A united state should be restored, not a "trinity." We are not "brothers Slavs", but one divided people.
          Your slogan actually means a call for maintaining the status quo and dividing the country into an export-raw and two transit appendages (colonies) of the West.

            I really hope that you “blurted out” the jokes for the sake of either not thinking. I live in this concentration camp "Sun". With this so-called "Old Man". I often visited you as a guest and as an employee. You in Russia are accustomed to complain and moan that everything you have there is bad and hopeless. But you can’t even imagine how bad things are here. To come / relax / spend Russian rubles in Belarus is one thing. But living here and being a citizen of a concentration camp is, you know, absolutely different. God forbid you ever feel the power of such "Old Man" and its "vertical of power" over itself. I see you have a "flag" of the USSR. Here, too, they like to hide everything behind the sign of the USSR. And in fact, organized crime groups on a state scale with thieves' concepts and laws.

              And as a citizen, have you tried to visit us? I sympathize with your grief, but I have always believed that Belarus is balancing on the brink of survival between the two fires, while the risks from the Russian oligarchy are much higher than from the west. Under these conditions, dictatorship is inevitable. There is nothing good in it, and you do not like it. This is understandable - I want to live well now. Then the alternative you would have long been what is now in Ukraine. And through the dictatorship, it seems, everyone will soon have to go through when the harsh times come. Here it will be decisive in whose interests this dictatorship is, what its goals are. I will not talk about methods, so as not to excite inadequacies and those for whom it is still not clear that the means should always be proportionate to the goal in terms of necessity and sufficiency. I also recall the meaning of the principle of not exceeding the limits of the necessary defense (there will be any place) - not to do more damage than is necessary to prevent threatened damage. Everything else from the evil one, in a critical situation, the mobilization of all resources is necessary, whoever can, will win. And of course I want to live now - this principle of "elites" was maintained even during the wars, well, the flag is in their hands. Lack of intelligence is also a drawback.

      It is better for the United States to have an enemy than a friend. All friends of the United States are dying out, as it were, as a result of complex circumstances. The Baltic states have already lost up to 40% of the population, Ukraine is losing population at a rate of 2 million a year. And the 90s of US friendship with Russia are remembered as a nightmare. So now Russia will really live and grow stronger.

Pilate, seeing that nothing helps, but the confusion increases, took water and washed his hands before the people, and said: I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man; you look. And answering all people said: His blood is on us and on our children. " (Matthew 27: 23-25) After the execution of Christ, the Romans completely destroyed Jerusalem and the people who created it were "scattered" around the world. Only in the last century, having paid millions of lives, Jews returned to their historical homeland. From their main Temple, only the "Western Wall" is still standing.
          After the shooting of the "anointed of God" and his family in Yekaterinburg, Elizabeth in Alapaevsk, in a short time we got the two most "bloody" wars in the history of Russia.

    world chaos is approaching a "dangerous phase"
    This is understandable without an expert like Mr. Sidhu. But maybe it's time for these “experts” to sit down, calmly analyze the situation and finally honestly say who and why is wreaking havoc in the world? It is clear that it is not accepted to recognize their criminal actions, but then probably you should not appoint Russia as an emergency in this situation.

    The modern world is moving towards political, economic, technological and normative multipolarity, but at the same time, the ability to project power around the world (and thereby ensure global security) remains in the hands of one, perhaps two powers.
    .... the ability to project power and thereby ensure global security is not the same thing.
    The projection of power is the imposition of one’s vision of the world on one’s opponents, without the right to express one’s own point of view. And even more so attempts to stick to it. A good example of the confusion of the Europeans after the election of Trump. All together they extended their necks, under the yoke, and to them from across the ocean - themselves, all by themselves.
    Not one, even a superpower, is able to level out the thinking of all, without exception. There are certain points of contact, pressure, blackmail and threats, in the end.
    But this is not absolute power over thoughts and aspirations. All the same, the vassals are trying to twitch and break out.
    And one country now oh how difficult ( laughing ).
    Previously, two worlds, two poles were bred on opposite sides of the barricades of supporters of both.
    And the world was more transparent and understood.
    And the current situation cannot be called transparent and understandable.
    And the last in this paragraph.
    China will not be able to take on the role of world leader for one simple reason - it personifies a different political system than the majority.
    A leader cannot be for the “reds”, and his wards for the “whites”.
    Someone needs to repaint.
    Nationalism, multipolarity and multiple stakeholders create, as a result, an “almost insurmountable gap between new technological capabilities and the ability to create norms and institutions to manage them.”
    Something the author was too clever with the wording.
    What information is available about the standards and institutions created by new technological capabilities?
    I do not have one.
    Nationalism, multipolarity and many stakeholders - what is it all about?
    Some kind of mishmash of all the known ulcers of modern society.
    Multipolarity, even with grief across the sexes, implies many stakeholders. But as nationalism, which is based on the monopoly of one nation, can be multipolar and has many stakeholders - this does not fit my head.

    Apparently, the Hindu, who left for the USA, tried to "roll a smart guy on the face," and hide his mediocrity behind loud phrases.
    But I do not want to lose a place at the university.

    It is necessary to fight with meaning, for something, or with profit. Russia is not going to fight. What is the benefit of the United States and Britain if they do not?
    The whole world in ruin is not profitable and meaningless.
    The capture of Russia can only happen as a result of betrayal and coup d'etat.
    In the near future, this is not real.

    Quote: Galleon
    Tsar Nicholas II was also Orthodox on the right track. And how Boris Nikolayevich was baptized on camera, can’t tell ...

    And how drunk, well, truly Orthodox!

    "The Russians are not allowed to do anything like that. Just because they are, in the language of scouts," bad guys. "
    As Vladimir Vladimirovich reported to all of us just recently, this thesis can already be "put". hi

    The professor wrote to cut the dough.

    Nothing in this world is changing. And the profession is greedy and limitless.

    The professor pulled out a shiny glass from a pile of rubbish and wrapped around a bunch of worthless theory.

    The problem of the world is the economic system - capitalism. This system leads the world to suicide. And to get out of the circle closed by the system, it is necessary to destroy capitalism.

    The question is how to do this.

    If revolution, then war cannot be avoided. If evolution, then you need to change laws and improve education systems.

    The most important law that capitalism preserves is antitrust laws. If neoni, capitalism would go over to a planned economy of compromise.

    Thank God! Russia can protect itself. The United States has little time, you want to eat, but no one. The United States has already begun to destroy the European Union at the hands of Islamic emigrants, but this does not save them. If the US war is unleashed, it is not against Russia. Most likely against North Korea. Against Donbass, the United States will not directly risk either, and the comancruts will not pull. So North Korea is at greatest risk.

      Natalia.

      The beginning is correct, and the conclusions let us down.

      SK, the states do not need. They pluck to the sound of Yap and southern. There will be more fat. And SK, this is just an excuse.

      But in general, the course of your comments is correct.

    Such "professors-experts-political scientists" as this Americanized Indian, there are no numbers, immeasurably at every American university - they brainwash students, especially elite foreigners. But we went further - gave these Russophobic fruits a live broadcast on the country's main television channels. Why - it’s not clear, complete nonsense, they think about ratings and advertising, but not about harmful garbage in the brains of our youth, starting from school. This is worse than a crime - this is a mistake. Themselves have given their field of information battle!

    We’ll be alive, we’ll not die! No one needs any big war. After a full-scale nuclear war, even the “victorious” side will die out.

    Since 1917, we have been guilty of simply existing, during the Soviet era, we were not even told how many times America wanted to attack us and lived happily, looked with optimism into the future. And now we’ll only live in a box and do not show Syria, etc. .d.

    "Horses mixed up in a heap, people ..." And "urban violence", and terrorism. Can someone explain what urban violence is and how it differs, for example, from rural violence?

    Any intelligible person who has torn himself off the Internet will be a better forecaster than the slurred and non-existent Sidhu Buddha. Everything is clear to everyone, but Sidhu recites mantras specifically for frankly dumbheads. Hello from Ren-TV.

    Yeah ... It seems that indeed, a universal meat grinder will begin soon ... Everything is going to that ... Everything is burning all around ..
    For us, the most important thing is to have time to sow the territories of our “partners” with our ash and poplar trees, then it’s not a shame to die, if you know that you have avenged ...
    But dying without revenge is scary ...
