France announced the return of the role of the "gendarme of Europe" to the United States

49

The United States is again returning to the role of the "gendarme of Europe", and this was helped by the arrival of Joe Biden in the White House and the crisis over Ukraine. This is the opinion of the French political scientist Alexandra de Hoop Scheffer in her article for Le Monde.


According to the French expert, Biden, who is well acquainted with the situation in Ukraine, from the very beginning of his presidential career did not harbor any illusions about Russia and did not hope for a "reset." He immediately indicated that in the conflict with the participation of Russia and Ukraine, he takes the side of Kiev, however, Ukraine itself should not demand something very big.

Today, the conflict in eastern Ukraine is in a "frozen" state, the Minsk agreements are not being implemented, the parties are violating the ceasefire. The mediators in this conflict - France and Germany - are not coping with their role.

At this moment, Biden enters the scene, taking control of the situation. He promises military support to Ukraine, which is pinning its hopes on the US and NATO, but says nothing about joining the alliance. Kiev takes the side of the United States, which announces additional military aid worth 125 million dollars.

In this situation, European countries, fearing to completely spoil relations with Russia, remain on the sidelines, and the United States regains the role of a European "gendarme" who solves all problems, the author writes. This is confirmed by the dispatch of additional US forces to Europe, rather than the withdrawal of troops from Europe.

Biden's new policy will be to strengthen military ties with Ukraine against the backdrop of close ties with European allies and confrontation with Russia. Moreover, Washington will play a major role in this.

The White House will continue to put pressure on the Kremlin, but it will not completely sever ties, since there are several problems that cannot be solved without Russia's participation.

        Hitler was making a fool. It was necessary not to violate the Pact and it was not necessary to attack the USSR and slowly crush and further the impudent Saxons. Britov, first of all, by the beginning of the War, they had already done decently in Dunkirk.
        The rest would be somehow divided, then wassat

            In 1940, the Yankees did not have such agility. And there would be problems with the area of ​​accumulation of forces. The maximum they would decide to do is to chop off the maximum number of colonies from the British Empire, and for free. Nothing personal just business.

          It's impossible. Hitler was an implacable enemy of the Soviet regime and the attack on the USSR was only a matter of time. And to be honest, I would never want to share anything with those who measured people's skulls before sending those who did not pass this test to the crematorium.

          The trouble is that it was impossible to do this with the army. And the Reich did not have a fleet after the Norwegian campaign.
          So Adolf decided to go to indirect actions - to force Britain to peace by depriving her of her last possible ally on land. For some reason he appointed the USSR.
          Although it seems to me that this idea was suggested to him by the army and navy, who desperately did not want to drown in the Channel or wade through the meat grinder of the landing zone. smile

      In general, Schaeffer did not reproach the United States, namely, he licked them, at the same time reproaching the local paddling pools and their bosom neighbors for their inability to behave the same way.

      At a certain stage, after 1991, they retreated to the role of "overseer" and even partially reduced their contingent from 200 thousand to 50 thousand bayonets, but seeing Europe's interest in building closer economic relations with Russia, they decided to regain the role of a gendarme, which would "God forbid" the idea voiced by the GDP in Davos in 2007 - about a single economic space "from Lisbon to Vladivostok" did not come true, which could lead, if not to a complete, then to a significant loss of the influence of mattresses on Europe, especially considering involving China in this formula, where there was practically no room left for mattresses. Now they are beating drums and trying to intimidate the European man in the street with a threat from Russia with one single goal, to destroy the emerging economic cooperation.

    Foolishly does not stand up to the slightest criticism: 125 million dollars in exchange for what? On the relations with China and Russia spoiled into trash? (the result minus a bunch of billions of dollars to Ukraine). Europe and Turkey rushed to help Ukraine with finances? Figs, on the contrary, say that they do not support the fanning of the conflict and whoever's side. They say openly: Europe does not need Ukraine as well as NATO. This does not cope with the role, but a clear position. To confront Russia without breaking off relations is nonsense! You have to be a fool not to see the clear and stupid US policy of calming down before slaughter: you don't react to sanctions, it's great, we just want to improve relations ... Let's look at Putin's reaction very interesting ...

      The position that Biden is an old idiot who does not understand what he is doing can be VERY DANGEROUS for us! This Joe is still a fruit and a serious opponent that needs to be taken seriously, he served as chairman of the Senate for Foreign Relations for a long time! Roughly speaking, foreign policy is his element and in it, I think, he understands quite well for himself. Therefore, he knows what to say to whom (to bring) to put pressure on third countries. hi

      Well, don't tell me. Precisely because ordinary French people want radical changes in foreign and domestic policy, Le Pen is in the lead in polls. It is clear that soon the main forces will be thrown out against it and will begin to pressurize by any means, but the demand in society will not disappear from this.

    How can a person rule if he is not only deprived of the opportunity to draw up some kind of plan even for a ridiculously short period, well, for example, a thousand years, but he cannot even vouch for his own tomorrow?

    It's funny to talk about forecasting from the United States after they have created industrial China with their own hands, but about their own evening. The gendarmes are good with regular skirmishes in their own barracks and, in general, a situation close to a civil war at home!

    The Frenchman's mistake is that if the US does not cut ties with Russia, then Russia will sever ties with the US. Europeans do not understand this, since they are completely subject to US laws. In the same way, they obeyed the dictates of Hitler at the time. And even earlier they lay down under Napoleon Bonaparte.
