If Russia and China are driving change, is the US no longer at the global geopolitical helm?

If Russia and China are driving change, is the US no longer at the global geopolitical helm?

When Xi Jinping left the Kremlin, he, addressing Vladimir Putin, uttered a phrase that deserves to become winged:

When we are together, we are driving change that hasn't happened in the last 100 years.

American reporters used the term “manage” instead of the word “we are moving”, further strengthening the psychological effect for the West of the phrase that the President of China uttered in Moscow.



The perplexity and anxiety in the United States in this regard is due to the fact that for the first time in several decades, someone else in the world is driving or managing fundamental changes. There are even more radical conclusions in the same America: Russia and China are making changes, while the United States generally remains outside of global geopolitics. And if Russia and China are driving change, then it turns out that the United States is no longer at the global geopolitical helm? Or is this still too loud a statement?

In any case, there have been some really incredible changes happening on a global scale lately. Saudi Arabia restores relations with Iran, bringing to an end the years-long war in Yemen. The same Saudis are switching to selling their oil to China not in dollars, but in yuan. The banking crisis that took place in the United States hit the banks of the US satellite countries painfully, but it practically does not affect the banking system of Russia, China, and a number of countries in Southeast Asia. The United States finally signs that they have no tools to stimulate the economy, except for a new increase in the ceiling of the public debt and unleashing more and more wars. And this is only a small part of the global changes that the United States is no longer able to control.

Mikhail Leontiev's opinion on this matter is presented in the Odnako program.

      Of course, I would like it to be so, but it is too early to say so. The struggle for supremacy in the management of world processes is just beginning.

        The struggle for supremacy in the management of world processes is just beginning.

        There is a struggle in the world not for the right to manage world processes, but for a multipolar world, when countries live in the absence of pressure on domestic and foreign policy by means of military threats, aggression and the creation of some kind of sanctions conditions for the development of the economy.
        The world simply begins to understand at whose expense the Anglo-Saxon world is developing and does not want to pay for the intrigues of this world and support it, using some artificially created world equivalent of means of payment.
        You can’t produce and create something in your own country and exchange it for paper, ostensibly having some kind of value.

      For thirty-five years they squealed, groaned, honked about the best Western partners. They raised their economy to the skies with cheap raw materials, transferred children, lovers, dogs there, built factories, bought steamers .... They got a deafening beep and expropriation of the loot.
      Now the second series with China. Everything is the same and the same. No one is going to restore the remnants of their industry. What for? Their descendants will not live here. Ask Roma Abramovich.

      Of course, it’s hard to puff out your cheeks with importance for a long time, but ... China works for export, including the US and the EU.
      That is, we and he are svrevye appendages. And whoever consumes gas, oil, metals and consumer goods is the metropolis.

      I am an adult, near retirement age. But as a child, I always heard from my father that the Chinese cannot be trusted. He grew up in the Far East and told a lot of hard-hitting things about them. I hope for the foresight of our president.

      Now, in one face, as before, you will no longer be able to hide the entire "jar of honey", you will have to share it.

      Russia and China are making changes, while the United States is generally left out of global geopolitics.


      Just some dreamers wrote an article, not yet a horse, not a cart, but they are already sharing the skin of an "unkilled bear" ....

        This is how the United States adopted the phrase about "changes". So these are not the words of the author. Xi said America is tensed

        This conflict, significant for us and small for the rest of the world, is one of the wars that drives the US economy. Naturally, they rule and help them those of us who have "kids, lovers, dogs" attached there .. Indirectly, an operation began in the best traditions of the Soviet military school - pressure in the center does not allow the reserves to move and strikes on the flanks towards each other, now the northern ones are already at the Kiev airfield, the southern ones are walking without any resistance in Kherson .. And tram! Some kind of minor Jew with the same little-known team in Istanbul and an even more incompetent group with a banking one .. the troops stood up, the generals were incomprehensible, the northern ones foolishly went to our territory and the southern ones began rearguard battles with the Kremlin .. I had to recall the commander with a promotion ( otherwise the army won’t understand!) the new left from abroad makes a “difficult decision” on the move, they hang noodles on our ears about the old one as a loser .. Bucha, a “strange war” with frontal assaults on cities and stories about “maginots and manengheims” are true oral and not a single video or photo with "multi-storey pillboxes with millions", Soviet nuclear shelters are not counted, but new ones. I do not belittle the importance of any bunker or pillbox, but in the box flashed - "a heavily fortified stronghold with a pillbox blocked by a simple interfloor slab .... Projectile 152 mm with a faulty fuse goes into the ground up to 6 meters (for understanding)

      We have entered a period of turbulence; our enemy, the United States and its allies, are not yet ready to admit this fact, so everything is possible; including direct combat.

        Or it may be that the one who helmed the country turned the steering wheel in the wrong direction. Here the Italian wanted to show off to the lady what kind of ship he controls and put him on the rocks. So this is nothing compared to the fact that the country was stranded because it was necessary for the owners of the ship to fulfill the order, give money!

      And what does China buy from Russia besides gas and oil?

        In addition to raw materials, diesel fuel, gasoline, oils and semi-finished products, China buys from us complex dual-use and military technologies, from renewable - round timber (now mostly gray schemes) lumber, wood chips (cellulose semi-finished product) and do not believe it - chemical production goods

      This is precisely a loud statement, which is directly confirmed by the facts. And the Russian Federation and China are more fellow travelers, not allies; and we are economically and financially clearly weaker ..

      If Russia governs, then could it govern in such a way that Russian soldiers do not die?
      Is "managing change" more important than putting things in order at home?

      And if they do not manage, then how, to whom, why? Do not praise me, I will praise myself and admire myself.
