Foreign publication: Strengthening the Russia-China axis is the worst possible outcome of the Ukrainian crisis for the United States

67

Victory in the Cold War turned the United States into a hegemon on a global scale, but this dominance turned out to be a short-lived outbreak. The opportunities that the unipolar world gave the United States were wasted on waging global wars, and as a result, the dominance of Washington, which did not show a positive attitude towards Russia, came to an end.


This opinion is expressed in the Australian edition of ASPI Strategist. According to the author, the United States flaunted its dominance in the world, waging numerous wars, moving NATO's borders to the east - "to the backyard of Russia", instead of cooperating with it.

The United States should have accepted the Russian Federation into the Western bosom, just as it happened with Germany and Japan after the Second World War

- noted in a foreign publication about the missed chances of an alliance with Russia against China.

The rearmament of Russia against the backdrop of growing threats to it and the increasing power of China, nurtured by the West itself, eventually led to the bankruptcy of the unipolar world. US dominance has come to an end, leaving behind only Washington's many obligations to its partners, dissipating combat resources. According to the author, they are not enough even to protect Ukraine, which poses a danger to the Russian Federation due to the proximity of the two countries.

At the same time, an alliance between Moscow and Beijing is already looming on the horizon, the final formation of which may be pushed by new large-scale sanctions against the Russian Federation promised by Washington in the event of an escalation of the Ukrainian crisis. If Russia is cut off from SWIFT, then “China will become its banker”; blocking Nord Stream 2 will increase energy supplies from Russia to China, protecting Beijing from a possible naval blockade.

Strengthening the Russia-China axis is for the United States the worst possible outcome of the Ukrainian crisis. Therefore, it is necessary to find a compromise with Russia now

- the conclusion is made in the foreign press.

      So in the 90s we were already fully accepted "into the Western bosom, just as it happened with Germany and Japan following the Second World War" or does anyone have a short memory? Remember how "good" it was? And what kind of "reformers" we had. One Gaidar is worth it. Thank you no more. Then we are better on our own.

      Well, in principle, he is right - at the beginning of the 2008s, ours actively cooperated with the United States, the EU and NATO in terms of exercises and the exchange of intelligence data, but since the United States had the position "The CIA believes that Russia will fall apart soon", they relied on the Georgians in 2007, and ours, seeing that the stories about a "just West and democracy" are just a carrot for a donkey, and decided to change the vector of development .. Putin's Munich speech of XNUMX was just about that.

And when they come - do not rely on the Jesuit agreements that you have signed, supposedly justifying you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written.

                  And rightly so. Germany needed Adenauer. And he believed that Bismarck's mistake was maneuvering between east and west. And he was well aware of what could happen if Germany accepted Comrade Stalin's "peace note for Germany" on March 10, 1952. Historically, the Versailles rake was quite fresh. Therefore, he preferred not the "gathering of lands", but the separate existence of two Germanys.

                Just in 1933, it became "good" with the LGBT, which your interlocutor is so concerned about - before the Nazis arrived in Berlin, there were more than 100 clubs for same-sex people, and then - everything, a pink triangle on a robe and in KZ. So who is needed - Hitler or Bismarck? In general, suffering for the "strong master's hand" is purely our fetish. Europe is afraid of the coming of someone with dictatorial ambitions like the plague. It is worth the bonds of some corner of it to blurt out to someone about "national interests" and "independence", so they raise a hubbub with the entire collective farm. So - there will be no Bismarcks. Only fake quotes.

        It was precisely the development of this scenario that the mattresses were frightened of when the GDP at the Munich meeting in 2007 proposed developing a single economic space from Lisbon to Vladivostok, which would give powerful economic growth to Europe, Russia and China, leaving the United States behind. Since then, the United States has been diligently trying to spoil any opportunity to improve and strengthen relations between Europe and Russia by interfering in economic projects and scaring Europeans with a war that they themselves provoke. It is easier for them to burn Europe in flames than to allow it to determine its own economic priorities, since they will clearly help reduce Europe's dependence on Washington.

                    For a specialist, especially in the winged Iskander, which the Americans got to the bottom of, everything can be. In vain they shot the launcher so poorly.

    What does China care about NATO, and NATO about Southeast Asia?

    There is no NATO, but the United States is climbing around, and the United States is NATO.

    Take it away, the stage of the union of the Russian Federation and the PRC is quite desirable by America. Although such an alliance promises problems, in fact, due to distances, it will be "by analogy" a grown up and modernized version of the OSI (in the US view), where we will be on the western flank instead of GG, and China will be on the eastern flank instead of Japan. With such a large-scale and consolidated threat, the US itself will have the opportunity to unite Western and Eastern democracies even more firmly under its leadership. Since in the west the potential threats from the Russian Federation are limited by its demographics, in the east the threats from the PRC are limited by its geography, and the transport and logistics capabilities of such an alliance are inferior to those of the West (using water communications), in the event of a real confrontation, the result would not be as obvious as it might seem to many. But in the case of a "semi-real" one, the result would be very beneficial for America, because it becomes possible to finally knock out India from the "neutral" and, in the future, a number of other states that are now far from the American model.

    The main goal of America was and will be one thing - they want the world according to their patterns and themselves at the head of "one humanity". On the way to this and to the expansion of their ideas and capabilities, there is always resistance - and the ideal way to gradually break this down is global wars with the "antagonist" of all "free mankind". This concept fits perfectly into their worldview of universal dualism, in which they themselves, of course, see themselves as a "good cowboy".

      But China does not want the world according to its patterns? Urum people, eternal enmity with Japan, India and South Korea, Tibet? Have you read how many lemons cut people? Why did you read it? I recommend to take a look.

        Here the difference is not in desire, but in the degree of implementation and involvement. The Anglo-Saxon world model is closest to realization than all the others. They have been calmly and methodically moving towards this since at least the end of the 18th century.

    Foreign publication: Strengthening the Russia-China axis is the worst possible outcome of the Ukrainian crisis for the United States

    What the West fought for, it ran into. It was the US pressure on China and Russia that brought them closer together.

    The ruin is a consequence ... petty .... the main reason is ETERNAL hatred and an attempt to destroy and subjugate Russia and China by the Anglo-Saxons.

    With such an ally as China, there is no need for enemies by definition. And in general, the memory of the dead soldiers on Damansky is no longer worth anything?

    The article is a hodgepodge. It didn't work. The title is right on topic, but here's the content ... Pleased - Australian edition)
    China will sit out to the last - he is now finally happy - he has a break. In general, the most beneficial recipient of all this is China. It was not handed out economically - although the house of cards of inflated GDP at construction sites could collapse from a small breath. I think the USA and Russia understand this very well.

    Time will tell who and where spoiled. Any hegemony comes to an end .. But the stagnation of the Western system of values ​​and arrogant pseudo-democracy can disrupt the stability of a considerable number of states.
