Why Trump will not go to the summit with Putin

63
The ruling circles of the power, still claiming to be a one-man world domination, have nothing to do at a meeting with a world leader who does not recognize this domination.




“Consent is a product with complete non-resistance of the parties!” - the character of the unforgettable “Twelve Chairs” uttered in due time, thanks to which we now have a universal formula for the success of any international negotiations. Including the so-called "summits". That is, meetings at the highest state level.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is very optimistic in this regard:

“Donald Trump several times, both in tweets and in words, said that it was necessary to solve issues with Russia, we want to have good relations with Russia, it’s better than not having good relations, and only a fool thinks otherwise. All this we also hear about the normalization of relations with .. Returning to the issue of the risks of military confrontation, I assume 100% of what the military will not allow, and this, of course, will not allow neither President Putin, nor the President Trump After all, they are leaders who are elected by their peoples, they are responsible to these peoples for peace and tranquility. ”


There is no doubt that Russia is not interested in exacerbating the confrontation with the United States, and President Putin fully controls the foreign policy of his country and, accordingly, can do everything necessary and possible to normalize relations with Washington.

But is the current owner of the White House capable of something like that? Alas, this is not a fact.

It is appropriate to consider two possible options.

The first is that Donald Trump really doesn’t mean anything when he says that you need to have a good relationship with Russia. And at the same time he understands that this cannot be the relationship of a suzerain and a vassal. That is, Trump, as a true patriot of America and a nationally oriented leader, is truly faithful to his election program and is determined not to go into the affairs of other countries and to deal primarily with solving actual American problems. Which, by the way, a dime a dozen.

In this case, we can assume that Trump is sympathetic to the position of Putin, who, in essence, wants exactly the same for his country. And to assume that, on the basis of such mutual understanding, there are good chances for a consensus solution of the most acute bilateral problems and for the great success of the personal meeting of the two world leaders.

And now option number two. Which completely crosses out what is written above. Even though Trump himself may be thinking exactly the way we just wrote.

And this applies primarily to the very possibility of the Russian-American "summit". If the ruling circles of the United States as a whole, and this is far from just Trump and his inner circle, are set up in relations with Moscow only in the “overlord-vassal” mode, then such a summit, in their understanding, will only make sense as a platform for formalizing these unequal relations.

However, the experience of the world stories teaches that productive negotiations with such a view can take place only as a result of a victorious war for one of the parties.

Meanwhile, this “fact of the event”, we do not observe today. The collapse of the USSR, which in the West was regarded as its own victory, giving the right to dictate any conditions to Russia, a thing of the past and he has already won back his own. "Kemu parish" and much more tasty, according to the results of that long-time Victoria, Russia has already choked off the West.

In relation to the current Russian Federation, the West requires other and also quite weighty arguments. Does he have it? Is not a fact! Let's briefly go over the spectrum of its capabilities.

In the sociopolitical sphere, the traditional calculation of the West to undermine Russian society and destabilize Russia from the inside has obviously failed, a clear confirmation of which was the unprecedented high support for Vladimir Putin’s course in the recent presidential elections. The Russians, which was quite predictable, only consolidate even more under increasing external pressure and are increasingly determined in relation to those agents of Western influence whom they had previously endured.

In the economic field, the West has almost exhausted its ability to exert pressure on Russia. Everything that can be done beyond this will result in a strong negative effect for the West itself, primarily for its European part, which will inevitably lead to an increase in the disintegration processes in the Euro-Atlantic space itself. The possibilities of the US to manipulate its European allies in this sense are far from infinite. Even Germany, which is very tolerant to Washington, is no longer able to withstand the regime of economic Russophobia imposed from overseas and is more and more insistently asking Trump to release her from this unbearable burden. With Italy, on the basis of disagreements over Russia, the matter has already completely reached the direct threats of the US State Department with “serious consequences” for this country in the event of withdrawal from the anti-Russian sanctions regime.

Meanwhile, the Russian economy, declared "torn to shreds" by Washington dreamer Barack Obama, is in no hurry to confirm this diagnosis. And, on the contrary, it seems that it only perks up after the opportunity has appeared to at least slightly slow down the avalanche of Western imports, which has been stifling its own production of goods in the bud.

The “international economic isolation” of the Russian Federation also turned out to be a trifold caftan. As recently as yesterday, the government of the People's Republic of China, a country unconditionally focused on close and long-term geopolitical relations with the Russian Federation, once again confirmed that Western sanctions have nothing to do and will not affect Russian-Chinese economic cooperation. So here, too, there are no special reasons for the nomination of “Rus, give up!” Ultimatums from Washington.

Finally, on the key military-political track in this regard, America also has practically nothing to cover Putin’s very strong trumps. Russia has proved that with a military budget of at least 10 times smaller than the US, it can spend its defense money more successfully and efficiently and achieve breakthrough results that have no analogues in the world. Taking into account the totality of Russian innovative military-technical developments in present-day America, which was rather relaxed on the occasion of the obviously prematurely announced “end of history”, all that remains is to swallow the dust. Especially since the American military itself is so mired in corruption and in the senseless waste of government money, that it is fit for it to think about tempering its ambitions.

And this is not just a figure of speech. Here is just a short list of the most recent American “epic file” in the military-strategic area.

- The United States built the most expensive destroyer in the world, such as the Zamuault, at a cost of $ 7 billion apiece. As a result, the construction program for these golden boats was reduced from thirty to a negligible two units. A the fleet The United States remains content with destroyers such as the Arly Burke, which have been building for more than thirty years.

- America built the most expensive aircraft carrier in the world, “Gerald Ford” for 13 billion dollars, not including operating costs. Today it is clear that such expensive ships can not afford even the United States. And this is despite the fact that they can be disabled by one or two punches of a penny, in comparison with the cost of the same Ford, the Russian hypersonic Dagger.

- America has invested tens of billions of dollars in creating a global missile defense system against Russia. As a result, Russia built the Sarmat ICBM with unlimited range, hypersonic maneuverable combat units Avangard to them and cruise missiles with a nuclear engine, for which the American missile defense system is an empty sound.

- America began to build a fleet of so-called "littoral ships", which hastened to declare unsurpassed weapons for waging war in the coastal theater of operations. As a result, Russia has built a small corvettes project 22160, which, according to the Americans themselves, are much more successful combination of size and firepower:

"Russia is building half a dozen 22160 patrol ships that use an innovative and compact design that provides many capabilities and a potentially huge combat strike in a relatively small hull."


As a result, the littoral ships in America that did not have time to become famous in real battles are already called "a floating pile of garbage." "After 16 years and billions of dollars were spent, the US Navy apparently finally admitted that the coastal warship program LCS looks like an absolute failure," writes another American publication.

The United States developed the fabulously expensive F-35 fighter, which has become famous throughout the world for its chronic inability to recover from its critical dependence on its super-sophisticated electronics, which can bring a pilot at any time. Israeli pilots, who will have to risk their lives on these unpredictable machines, are asking their command to rid them of this punishment and give them to fly on old but much more reliable F-15. And the US Air Forces themselves have already reduced their appetites for the purchase of the F-35 by exactly half, and it seems that this is far from the limit. That is, there is a failure.

But these are still only flowers against the background of the fact that American military power turned out to be extremely stupid and ineffective in cases of its actual use. This is most clearly manifested in Syria. Here literally all major US military bets collapsed. Starting from the underground weapons of local gangs of Basmachis, who, undoubtedly, will be finished off by the legitimate authorities of this country. And ending with the alpha and omega of US global military ambitions - rocket-bombing. The inefficiency of which, moreover, inefficiency, increasing with each time, despite all the spells of Trump and his support group from among the publications, masking under the Russian media, is visible, as they say, to the naked eye. America was never able to show absolutely nothing standing, except for a couple of unintelligible photographs, in order to back up its verbal blizzard about the “crushing blow” to Syria and the alleged ineffectiveness of Russian air defense systems.

Thus, summing up this brief excursion into the sphere of American hegemonic ambitions and real possibilities, one can make only one and quite definite conclusion. The present-day America has absolutely nothing that it could lay on the table of the future Russian-American summit in support of its claims to unconditional recognition by Russia of its subordinate position in relation to the United States.

But then, it is asked, for what the ass accordion? I mean, why does the American ruling circles have an equal meeting of the leaders of the two great powers, during which the obvious fact of the strategic equality of the parties and the lack of real possibilities for the United States to impose its will on Russia will be confirmed without options?

I repeat, Trump himself would probably agree with such an agenda. At least, he himself went to the presidency under the slogan of folding the American world hegemony, which the further, the more it becomes a burden for the people of this country. But it is very doubtful that those powerful forces that are currently conducting American foreign policy and manipulating Trump himself, forcing him to constantly prove how tough Putin's tamer are, agree to such an equal summit. Which for them is equivalent to the geopolitical surrender of the United States and the complete rejection of the idea of ​​a unipolar American world, on which everything is built in the States today.

The alternative for these circles can only be that which promises an acceptable result. That is a victorious war. Anywhere and whatever, but necessarily such, after which the enemy in the person of Russia will finally mature in order to accept the world on American terms. And although the chances of such a victory for the current United States are even less than 20 or 10 years ago, when Russia was just concentrating, overseas there is a clear understanding that tomorrow there will be even less of these chances. Because time ultimately works against the decrepit West, and every wasted day they lose can be fatal for him.

In this situation, Trump will not go to any summit. Thus, the hand of Russia stretched out to him as a sign of friendship will most likely hang in the air. For agreement, once again, there is a product only with the complete non-resistance of both parties.

      Everything is very simple. Verbal diarrhea. But in fact? Trump show maine, which in life is deeply purple, what will happen, the main thing is that I am. And most importantly, he does not understand what any word of the head of state can lead to. Putin is the exact opposite. This is the leader of the state prepared and proved his purpose. We all understand: our routine, low salary, off-road and more. Just think about it. What does it cost the state to maintain its integrity, independence and pride. Unclear? Will explain. We are Russians! And we can do without a bidet, a soul, all kinds of eateries (we will survive on moonshine), lady's support (airmobile houses of tolerance). In any conditions, we survive, we survive and will survive. Why did I use the word "survival"? Learn the story, then you’ll understand. Sincerely.

    the hand of Russia extended to him as a sign of friendship is likely to hang in the air
    But do not you think that the hand of Russia has long been hanging in the air. An elementary sense of decency and finally national pride should have long been forced to remove his hand. We have been holding out the “hand of friendship” for many years, and instead of the oncoming hand, punches, punches, and again punches and savory spits in this hand.

    In relations with the United States, friendship is not worth mentioning, since for them this concept is consonant with how the bruiser “makes friends” with the “six”. We are not suitable for the role of the latter, but we must defend and promote our interests. And the proposed meeting in this regard could help to determine at least the boundaries of possible cooperation, but not friendship, since such and in the foreseeable future will not be sincere or open. The USA is a nation of traders and that’s it.

    Moreover, two articles are of different polarities. In another article with exactly the same arguments, it was proved that we are a weak country and the United States is unequal. And that hegemons need to press a couple more economic and diplomatic buttons and we will be outcasts, non-handshakes, and others. The truth is apparently somewhere in between. The hegemons also need to understand that you cannot buy everything with money alone, and with firepower we will still see who is who.

      So with the economy is not so simple. Our main problem is its openness. Any money that tries to pour into the country's economy will be converted and withdrawn abroad. The hope for American and British sanctions against the rich "new Russians" has not yet been realized and the withdrawal of capital will continue.
      Still, I am for the return of the Soviet system, where there were two contours of money circulation. Cash and cashless. Naturally, the system must be modernized. And if you have a large salary and taxes paid, go to Turkey, Egypt, Italy and pay with a salary card. And under this you can introduce a progressive tax. You get more 300.000 rubles per month, pay 15%. 500.000 and more - 18%. 1.500.000 - 20%. More than 3.000.000 - 25%. From 5.000.000 - 30%. From 10.000.000 - 35%. And spend yourself quietly abroad.

    The article states, "... only one and completely unambiguous conclusion can be drawn. Today America has absolutely nothing to lay out on the table of the future Russian-American summit in support of its claims that Russia unconditionally recognizes its subordinate position with respect to the United States ... "
    On the contrary, present-day Russia has nothing to reinforce the claim for equality with the United States. Only one thing is nuclear weapons, the quantity and quality of which guarantees the unacceptability of a direct attack. And that’s all. Economics, scientific and technological achievements, including those in the military and space sectors, education, sports, healthcare are not only close to the USA, but also to China, Great Britain, Germany, etc. Recently there was still the authority of the country, inherited in many respects from the USSR, but he also fell a victim as a result of US actions, as well as his own ill-considered actions too. Recently, it was possible to more clearly indicate your only "I", but, in fact, they have bent. This is understandable, people from the government have something to lose, relatives, money, everything is there, closer to the West.

      Absolutely right. Russia can absolutely not oppose either the United States or the EU, for it is completely dependent on them economically and financially and also socially (through the “West-oriented” “elite”). All counterinsurgency attempts of Russia are broken up on the “iron” rule: Russia loses more from “counterinsanctions”. Therefore, all the counter-sanctions will go like "bombing Voronezh, which no one pity" .....

        And since Russia is already quite a power from the periphery, that’s why our Western “partner friends” are digging a hole with such persistence. Probably very much not afraid.

      America has absolutely nothing to offer, not like Russia. To the whole world. In the context of how I understand the situation, an interesting moment is connected with Ukraine. If we consider the Maidan from the point of view of the economy and the development of capitalism, it is completely clear why the Maidan was muddied by the European countries. But they did not break off and the country was lowered into the toilet. And to the States it became manna from heaven. The economy of both Russia and Europe has been undermined. So everything is quite logical.
      Russia has something to offer the world. States - no. And if a gangster has a big gun, then this does not mean that the gangster is right.

        Somehow you really, not there! Not Europe "muddied" the Maidan, but a mattress, and they never hid it! For a modest 5 billion everything was arranged. The goal is not to undermine the economy, but to squeeze Russia's base in Sevastopol! So the bummer happened on the mattresses, and now Europe is blown away, as usual, for Uncle Sam! hi

          You are strange people ... Believe everything as children ...
          Where did Ukraine soap in 2013? WEIGHT. Who pushed the idea of ​​Euroassociation? EU Who shouted the most about the bright prospects? EU Who torpedoed all efforts to agree? EU What did the chancellor say at the summit in Vilnius? Who gave guarantees to Yanukovych? You still remind me that the CIA occupied an entire floor in the SBU ...
          Yes, there was financial replenishment with green papers. So it didn’t cost the States ... Printed and given. And who then torpedoed the EU and took its place? States When Europe wanted to take advantage of the fruits of the Maidan, Nuland specifically and accurately sent them.
          If the States stupidly threw Europe, this does not mean that Europe did not stir up EURO Maidan.
          The result is simply excellent for the States. The Europeans did all the black work, and the amers had chestnuts. Russia is excluded from trade with Europe and both suffer enormous losses, Ukraine in general is in a deep .... crevice. Russians are killing Russians. This is aerobatics amers. They just wiped Europe aside.
          But initially, the economic background of EURO Maidan was to cut the gate to the Russian markets. Browse through the archive of A. Merkel’s speeches ....
          PS Political buns in the form of a base on the Black Sea are obvious. But I wrote about the ECONOMIC side of things. And here the ears of a rabbit (that is, Europe) clearly peep out of the hat.

    That is, Trump, as a true patriot of America and a nationally oriented leader, is truly loyal to his election program and is determined not to get into the affairs of other countries and to deal primarily with the solution of American problems proper. Which, by the way, a dime a dozen

    As usual in long and confusing articles. "Mixed people, horses." The whole point is in one sentence. The thing is that Trump really wants to “make America Great again” (Make America Great Again) The word "again" is interesting. That is, Trump knows perfectly well that the greatness of America is in the past.
    And here is the most interesting. America has become great by casting aside the policy of isolationism and interfering in the internal affairs of all countries in the world. There is no other way for the development of capitalism. Capitalism can exist only in conditions of expanding markets. Therefore, the policy of sanctions and closing markets in China and Russia are fatal for the West. The calculation was on the "economic blitzkrieg". That Russia will give up quickly. Since this did not happen (on the contrary, there is a narrowing of sales markets), Trump’s policies and rhetoric will become increasingly threatening and provocative. And there is no need to drag any external forces behind the scenes. Trump is a businessman and understands the logic of events. Therefore, he ABSOLUTELY has nothing to offer neither Russia, nor Europe, nor China. His only requirement is to surrender and submit to America. So negotiations with Trump are simply meaningless. And other presidents (negotiable) cannot be there by definition.

    Why Trump will not go to the summit with Putin

    Yes, because not Trump decides to go to him or not to go, but to some kind of "shadow government, which clearly showed the whole world who is the boss in America."
    Russia has proven that with a military budget of at least 10 less than the US

    But this is how to count.
    BBB per capita - $ 8664 per capita.
    And GDP per capita reduced to purchasing power is 20 or more.
    The difference is 3 times.

    Of course the article is very optimistic, but let's not compare the United States directly with Russia, after the collapse of the USSR, these are initially not quite comparable countries, in terms of population, economic and scientific development, parity is observed only in nuclear missile potential, as a legacy of the former THE USSR. Therefore, the United States, and not Russia, is a world superpower and a global hegemon. But what is the advantage of Russia over all other countries? Russia is really the only country independent of the United States in the world and therefore can pursue its independent, both domestic and foreign policy. All other countries of the world, including China, are directly or indirectly dependent on the United States and are forced to look back on the hegemon. The example of Kazakhstan clearly shows how the freezing of the gold reserve forces its leadership to take unpopular measures even among its population. Russia is an example of an emerging multipolar world, it is a hope to get rid of the hegemony of the United States, time will pass and Russia's support will increase in the world, many countries will stop supporting hegemonic sanctions and will seek to improve relations with Russia. So, we are still only at the beginning of the road, and realizing this, the West is undertaking all these provocations, trying to slow down the progressive development of a multipolar world. And these comparisons of Russia and the United States are now absolutely inappropriate, the main thing is that Russia has the potential both for its defense and upholding its interests in the world, and for further progressive development.

      Much is true. But some points can be challenged. For example, "Russia is really the only country independent of the USA in the world."
      If you take not individual countries, such as the United States or Great Britain. And to name things as they are is the collective West. That Russia is an appendage of this very West. Russia was independent when it was Soviet. And now for the hundredth time I’m convinced that Putin was right in calling the West partners. For modern Russia, which stands on the capitalist path of development, these are partners. And they don’t fight with partners.
      That's when the Kremlin clearly understands the fact that the States are not partners but enemies, then we can talk about independence. And then the picture is interesting. In the West, Russia is openly called an enemy. And in Moscow they are stubbornly called partners.
      In Russia, the comprador bourgeoisie, which stubbornly wants to get to the banquet table, is in power. But she does not understand that she is destined for the role of dessert.
      There is potential, you correctly noticed. There is no determination. And most importantly, there is no desire to become the head of resistance. A couple of years ago, the quite adequate ayatollah stated, "We are cooperating with Russia. But we are well aware that if the West lifts its sanctions, Russia will immediately switch to the West."

          There are 20 years of difference between Syria and Yugoslavia. These are two big differences. Now it just became clear that "there is nowhere to retreat. Moscow is behind"
          Unfortunately, this is not clear to everyone. You should always remember that when 28 Panfilov’s died near Moscow, cowards and alarmists fled from Moscow.
          Truth is like a faceted glass. There are many faces.

    Why does Russia need such assumptions - analyzes? Not about that, gentlemen ... Russia needs to build its economy in digital terms and for this our country has all the resources, then the USA and the rest will themselves ask to meet with our president ... However, Russia has leading liberal economists "educated "and brought up in the West, including among presidential advisers who openly say that our country does not need to develop high-tech industries in our country, it’s enough to conclude a big agreement with the West: we will give them the resources and they will give us everything we wish .. However, without Such a scheme does not work for the sake of sovereignty and now the West is crushing Russia with sanctions, for this very reason it requires us to completely obey our security ... Until now, Russia does not have its own “silicon valley” and all that Russian industry is capable of today, it’s a 28 nm processor that will be manufactured either in China, or in Korea or Taiwan ... And without your electronics you won’t build an independent digital economy, given the current sanctions against Russia ...

    And the economic sector. This is the most painful place in Russia

    The economic sector is a sore spot primarily for America itself. Because they have a gigantic financial debt of over twenty trillion dollars. And this is only public debt, and if we recall the debts of numerous financial organizations - for example, the pension system, then it is likely that in the near future the US may default and collapse the dollar. That's why they are furious before they die. But of course, at the same time, they will take nearly half the world with them to the financial grave: Britain, Germany, Japan, France, Italy, Greece, Poland, Ukraine.
    So do not worry too much about the Russian economy - we have normal difficulties, but the whole Western world of the "golden billion" is simply on the verge of collapse. And all of their GDP is just an inflated bubble, which includes many empty articles, such as the banking sector or the work of women cleaning their homes. If Russia included these items in the calculations, then our GDP would immediately have doubled.

There will be an economy even a little higher than the American one and then we saw on Trump.
