Military Review

The collapse of the hegemon spotted the entire planet.

66
The United States in the eyes of the world is losing its former influence. Even the closest satellites slip out from the care of the overseas hegemon.



In the photo: US President Donald Trump is agitating American taxpayers for his course in support of the “domestic producer” (a way to return America’s former economic power). The map shows US regions where new jobs will be created thanks to the signing of supply contracts by the White House weapons Saudi Arabia


In reality, things are not nearly as glamorous as in the parade shots. As evidenced by the facts of the most recent days.

For example, it is reported that the United States and Poland finally shook hands on the issue of the purchase of the American Patriot missile systems by Warsaw. And it seems that Trump's “employer” has another reason to rejoice.

Meanwhile, if you look at this event more closely, it is not difficult to see that Washington has no special reasons for euphoria. The fact is that his initial offer was reduced to the fact that Poles, who in the States are not without reason included among their most unquestioning satellites, were offered with purely American ease to purchase Patriot 4 batteries for a very round sum exceeding 10 billion dollars . Which, by the way, is about four times more expensive than a similar number of far more advanced Russian S-400 “Triumph” air defense missile systems.

The Poles naturally howled from such an American surprise and declared the complete lack of capacity for Poland of such an astronomical sum. This is what was announced on this occasion officially. I think that on the sidelines there were much stronger expressions, the leitmotif of which was the deepest resentment of the Polish admirers of America, whom their object of love wanted to stupidly dissolve with money.

The matter ended with the fact that in the United States they apparently realized that they had gone too far and decided to immediately play back. As a result, the Poles managed to knock off almost half of this monstrous amount and buy the same 4 batteries for 4, 75 billion dollars. Albeit not in the "premium" -kitting.

Thus, even in the case of his most loyal ally, Washington's business is clearly not burned out. In fact, the amount of the transaction halved by the Poles showed that the current United States is far from being such an undivided owner even on its own geopolitical farmstead, as it seemed more recently.



And this is far from the only illustration of the fact that the unconditional subordination mode in the Western world is no longer monolithic and gives more and more noticeable cracks.

A classic case of this kind - история with Washington’s attempts to sniff out its solvent allies (but not Poland, of course) its irreparably problematic and daunting F-35 fighters. The Americans, almost for the first time in their history, were forced to take an unprecedented step - to arrange a global sale of their newest type of weapon, which plainly did not even enter into service with the United States themselves. The reason is quite obvious - the exorbitant high cost of this “innovative” airplane, the gigantic expenses already incurred by the United States under this program, plus the apparent inability to fully pursue it without foreign financial injections.

However, in this case, the undertaking of the American "great combinators" seems to have been crushed. The majority of potential US customers reacted with utmost restraint to American attempts to foist on them with clearly not driven to the mind and at the same time super-expensive cars. As a result, the most hassle-free customer of this technology turned out to be ... Israel, which will not pay a penny for it, since F-35 is supplied to it within the framework of "fraternal American assistance." The rest of the “buyers” get rid of Washington's harassment, agreeing, and then - at best, to buy two or three times fewer planes than originally planned.

A typical example is the Netherlands, which at first swung to 85 F-35, then reduced their purchase to 37 and continued a heated discussion. on this occasion.

According to the report of the Klingendaal Institute of International Relations (The Hague), submitted at the beginning of the year, the adoption of the controversial JSF fighter is the least attractive scenario for the development of the Dutch Armed Forces. Klingendal reports that F-35 will be in demand only if the Netherlands decides to take part in the initial phase of military intervention in another country. But usually the Netherlands rarely takes an active part in such operations.


Their loyalty to the original purchase obligations of the F-35 is observed so far, except that the key countries of the Anglo-Saxon World Club are the United Kingdom and Australia, which, by definition, cannot have any differences with America. However, the UK Ministry of Defense has already announced that it is considering the possibility of a serious reduction in the procurement plan for these vehicles. And neighboring Canada has completely abandoned this dubious luxury, getting rid of annoying Yankees by transferring to the project’s general treasury, in order to preserve its symbolic membership in the F-35 Fans Club, miserable 30 million dollars a year.

Interesting is the situation with Turkey, which the Americans, in the order of punishment of this country for the purchase of the Russian C-400 air defense system, set out to be excluded from the production and supply program of F-35. However, nothing came of it. As it turned out, the Turks produce one of the important components for this machine. And, in the event of their withdrawal, the remaining partners, primarily the United States, will bear an additional burden of at least 12 billions of dollars. For today's America, this seems to be a very heavy amount. Therefore, the local State Department hurried to slow down the polemic and practically stopped blackmailing Turkey with the non-delivery of F-35.

However, this is unlikely to help the US rearm its combat Aviation. As it became known the day before, the States do not rule out a landslide reduction in their ambitions regarding construction fleet F-35. Here is what the American agency writes on this subject. Bloomberg:

“The US Air Force may be forced to cut purchases of fifth-generation F-35 fighters by a third if the agency fails to find ways to reduce operating and support costs by 38% in the next 10 years. Because of this, 1 776 airplanes that are to be produced for the USAF can deduct 590 F-35 from 2070. The point is that the United States may face serious problems in the future financing of maintaining aircraft airworthiness. Before 1,1, XNUMX trillions of dollars can go for this only from the Air Force budget.


Thus, there is a very depressing global trend for the United States. Without the support of their foreign allies and vassals, the States no longer pull even the key programs of re-equipping their armed forces. The US military industry is increasingly dependent on the presence or absence of foreign orders. And the allies, in their turn, are fully aware of the diminishing possibilities of the “world hegemon” and, taking this opportunity, are beginning to press the US more and more persistently for advantageous conditions for further cooperation.

And, admittedly, not without success. As confirmed by the Polish purchase for half the original price of the American Patriot air defense system. And the actual collapse of the international fighter program of the new generation, on which so many hopes were pinned in Washington, and as a result they came to the conclusion that even their own Air Force cannot be re-equipped today.

In fact, the confrontation of the previously unconditional American world hegemony is growing not only from such traditional opponents of the United States as China and Russia, but also within the West itself. Where the American allies themselves are becoming increasingly aware of the irreversible weakening of their patron and are in a hurry to use it to pull the blanket over themselves.

          Your argument is clear. But what a situation it turns out. The United States promoted the idea of ​​the so-called 5th generation aircraft. Hundreds of billions spent. , time and resources. As a result, F-22 only 190 pcs. and the production is dismantled. F-35 declared amount has been repeatedly reduced. What is leftover.? Return to previous generation aircraft. i.e. complete hegemonic failure

      it is believed that the Soviet physicist Ufimtsev who later left for the United States, whose discoveries formed the basis of the American development of stealth aircraft, supposedly could have been a “mishandled Cossack” - threw out an idea that deflated hundreds of billions of dollars from the American military budget, and all for nothing.

        No, Lokhkid himself got it. In his publications, the Ufimtsev gathered together what they already knew; referred to other works; did not cite any secret research results. The bounty is that it offered a peculiar "spherical horse in the vacuum" - a calculated approach to not getting a corner reflector by the planes of the plane. Those. the same task for antennae, just the opposite. The Americans came across his articles only seven or eight years later, when they were fortunate enough to translate into English. Most likely, the articles for them served as an argument for the military - here, the Evil Empire, if not tomorrow, then the day after tomorrow will surely have stealth, so let's get some money and we’ll get the same for you, but more provocative. And wrap it all up ... The main achievement of the 'lame goblin' is proof that a fence with a powerful engine also flies smile
        As Vyacheslav noted above, the same nyashka turned out with the Yak-141. Only now the Americans have miscalculated in a big way. If the 'goblin' in their Air Force was on its own and the withdrawal did not affect the possibilities, then the F-35 was planned to replace everything and everything. And then suddenly it turned out that the northern polar fox feels rather well from Alaska to Texas and Washington. But time and money are gone ...

        Why do they perish? Already, the author "proved" that he "disappeared the hegemon." laughing You can celebrate, rise and become the new hegemon, having done absolutely nothing for this. Cleverly checked the fact that the complex was cheaper (with the export option worsening, which is cheaper, of course) as the US weakness.
        In one article, the United States bends down China (and here, after all, 1 and 2 of the planet’s economy), and here the United States cannot “bend” the allies ... Although in the third articles there are “meek American sixes” who cannot blather against the United States.
        In general, the essence of the article is clear.
        But no trees are visible beyond the forest. 590 of the latest expensive aircraft is not enough. There were fewer raptors, and he has not had competitors for 20 years ...
        And the costs were laid out for everyone (A good solution for the sake of saving own funds and a solid customer). Yes, they didn’t calculate the high cost (all modern projects are like that — there’s a stadium in St. Petersburg), we got a reduction in the order ...
        In general, we can imagine it purely hypothetically. The Russian Federation makes the Su 1001 the characteristics of the 5th generation along with a dozen countries and the exact same situation as the US F 35. The article's genre would be completely different.

      This is their habit. They have their own Tussens who want to develop budgets, which is why all this is to be given to the US. Democracy, Duck ...

      If there is one hegemon in the world that patronizes everyone, what for the rest have their own armies, and even rearm periodically? Let the hegemon arm himself and defend the rest.

      there is always action and reaction in the world. The balance is that there must always be some kind of enemy.
      The United States spends a lot of money on maintaining its number one status. Tearing up, trying to save, but they have to pay. And to maintain the status, too. The USSR also did the same in smaller volumes, but still. China is following in the footsteps. Anyone who wants to take the place of a dragon is waiting for the fate of the dragon.
      In fact, it is worth pitying US taxpayers. It is possible, but not for long, to drag the burden of the world hegemon. The United States took it in 1945, which is relatively short in the history of mankind.

    Oh, how so, Sarah Obamovich’s exclusivity, both Clinton’s and Trump’s, is blown away for some reason, there remains a bloody, barbaric simple American empty swagger, as well as world-wide trash - that is, small Britain with Teresa May.

    The logic of the author is obvious, only a problem with the conclusions. A super plane and an epic with it and this program are not an indicator of US problems, especially with allies. There, in relations, the existing vertical will not be soon canceled. No need to throw hats, you need to understand that in the event of consolidation against us-the United States, a complete master over his vassals is enough for them, and they will print green wrappers as much as they like while oil is sold for dollars. something like this.

    The United States is at the forefront of space, oil, electronics, software, automotive and much more. To not understand this is to ignore reality.

    Thanks to the author for the article, I don’t really want to offend him, but she (the article) is more an exposition of the author’s thoughts, speculation and headings. It would be nice to confirm the letters in the article with numbers repeat

    This is true for the Russian Federation! If they don’t buy our weapons, then we won’t do anything to ourselves!

      This was the situation of the first decade of the new millennium. When new models of weapons arrived contrary to circumstances (the situation with the Su-30, which should have been Algeria, for example). Now the situation has changed, and new systems are coming into service, on their own, slowly, but come.

    Another propaganda article. Everything is bad with America and it will fall apart soon. For that, everything is fine with us.
    For stolen from the budget lard give 3 years probation, and for a loaf of bread -5 years in prison. But the fact that soon there will be no one to work in the same defense industry, and there’s nothing on it, is the machinations of the opposition. which, at the direction of the State Department, is ruining Russia. But why the Motovilinsky plants bankrupt, no one bears responsibility. Yes. There are developments, but they are not mass produced. And I think it’s not worthwhile to succumb to propaganda from the shitty man. You need a little and include brains.

    Hmm, according to the logic of the article, did the F-35 finish off the Pentagon’s budget? Why is this aircraft so actively promoted? They already have an F-22, which is also positioned as a 5th generation aircraft. The situation resembles that of the B-2 program. But he often read that it was at least a grand KGB scam. Since the plane came out incredibly complex, with an astronomical price. Purely my opinion, B-2 and B-2B failed, but I do not want to paint, there will always be someone who will dispute, but I'm too lazy)

    What a loud headline - “the whole planet”! And I, for example, see the gradual isolation of Russia by economic and diplomatic methods. But maybe I'm from another planet)

    * I do not think so EVERYTHING is sad for the USA, as long as they are strong and in front of the whole planet. About their weaknesses they write only. Although the United States for me personally is not an indicator of justice and health, but it should be adequate to treat our enemies without lies.

    I remember the Iranian Shah sold the F-14 even before it was adopted by the US NAVY.

    The article is another bucket of compound feed for feeding the cheers-patriots. Eat comrades. It doesn’t give a damn that in their country African salaries and benefits for half a year can’t get medicine, but in America it’s not so good. You are like Ukrainians who rejoice that the ruble exchange rate has fallen in Russia, and the budget itself is full of holes and owe everything. No different.
