US World Strategy



In Qatar, the transfer of power from Hamad bin Khalifa al-Tani to his fourth son Tamim took place. The formal reason that has been repeatedly voiced is the poor state of health of Emir Hamad. That, in general, is true. Severe-onset diabetes plus unsuccessful liposuction in the 11 year, which aggravated the disease, is a good reason.

True, in neighboring Saudi Arabia, kings often rule without regaining consciousness, and this does not prevent them from remaining on the throne until death. And in the rest of the Arab monarchies, the voluntary transfer of power is unheard of. And in general - in the East it is not accepted. It is easier to kill even presidents than to force them to transfer their power.

Most likely, poor health as a reason for the change of power is only a cover for the more important factors that led to it. The question is what are these factors?

There are two versions of events that explain the "Arab Spring". The first version is subjective. The “Arab Spring” is the creative development of “color technologies” and was launched by the United States for reformatting the regional order that does not suit them. The second is objective. The “Arab Spring” is the result of resolving the contradictions that have accumulated over the past decades, which the Middle Eastern rulers could not cope with. The West and the US are only trying to “integrate” into these processes and use them for their own purposes with varying degrees of success.

Both versions are rather sketchy and, most likely, far from fully explain what is happening. However, the transfer of power in Qatar is frankly project in nature, in order to try to explain it only by the apparent ill health of the monarch.

The United States, having overstrained itself during the reckless squandering of its power immediately after the collapse of the USSR, moved and continues to move to a much more economical strategy of indirect influence in all significant regions of the world. They are no longer able to dominate everywhere, but they clearly understand that today their main adversary is China. There are different opinions on this, however, the 2020 – 2025 years are called by very many as a feature, after which, with the current dynamics of events, China will reach the level of the power of the United States. Today, he has two critical problems that the 18 Congress of the CCP has called without much diplomatic overtures - social stratification and technological lag. And the congress quite clearly outlined the ways in which these problems will be solved.

The United States has no options - they have to complete three very difficult blocks of tasks in the remaining time. The first is to concentrate its power against China. The second is to slow down the pace of its development. The third is to carry out re-industrialization and the transition to a new technological order, while China is trying to gain a leading position in the current structure.

The events of the "Arab Spring" are used by the United States to solve all these problems at once. To concentrate their military power against China, the Americans must withdraw from other regions of the world as fully as possible, creating as many problems as possible. In order to avoid a new competitor.

Slowing the growth rate of China’s development is an extremely difficult task, but it can be solved by creating problems in all the regions of the world that are most important for China, and the problems that China will have to either use for its own resources or go away, thereby slowing down its growth.

The United States is organizing its own development right now, flooding its economy with money and creating conditions for the smooth functioning of basic industries in modes that are impossible in any other situation. The shale revolution is one of the examples when deliberately unprofitable shale gas production feels great, despite the nasty reporting figures and the rational thinking of specialists. At the same time, it provides for record-low energy prices on the domestic American market, putting its economy in a deliberately advantageous position over all others. Next in line is shale oil.

And what have the emir of Qatar? Given that the chaotic processes in the Middle East are beneficial for the United States - but only if they have the ability to influence them. Nobody needs boundless chaos. The al-Qaeda Islamist militants, under control, are a tool. Out of control - a threat. And now, al-Qaeda is out of control. In general, a lot of things have been missed over the past three years. Conclusions have been made - the entire foreign policy bloc has been completely replaced in the new Obama administration. The previous policy is recognized no longer relevant to the real situation. Moreover, the new politicians responsible for external direction are specialists in the Middle East. And this indicates that now for Obama is the current priority.

A reasonable question - if Obama did not spare his people, why should he spare some Bedouin savages? Now their turn has come. And faithful servants one by one begin to go to the scrap. Erdogan has already reached the line beyond which he will be called the bloody dictator. Emir Hamad al-Thani is changed for a resigned Tamim. The king of Saudi Arabia is about to die - and it is obvious that here the USA will do everything to breathe life into this dying dynasty, torn by contradictions. Even at the cost of the integrity of the kingdom.

For new tasks require new tools. The choice is not very large, but it exists.

    True, in neighboring Saudi Arabia, kings often rule without regaining consciousness.


    It seems that in the states with the ruling elite, the same thing happens.



    All the good encouraging news:

    WASHINGTON, June 26. / Corr. ITAR-TASS Dmitry Kirsanov. The United States is embarking on a massive reduction in its ground forces. This was announced on Tuesday at a special briefing in the Pentagon by the chief of staff of the US Army / as the army is called here / General Raymond Oderno



    As he specified, the number of ground troops will be "cut" from the current 570 thousand people - the peak indicator achieved in connection with operations in Iraq and Afghanistan - up to 490 thousand / that is, 80 thousand people, or 14% /. It is planned that the process of “these reductions will be completed by the end of the 2017 financial year,” Oderno noted. As he explained, we are talking about the reorganization of the Army, as a result of which 33 combat brigades will remain in it, and not 45, as at present.

    According to the military leader, reductions are being made both in the light of the completion of the Iraq campaign and within the framework of budgetary savings by the US Department of Defense. The US military has to, in accordance with previous laws, reduce its costs by $ 417 billion over more than 10 years, and the Army’s share of this amount is about $ 170 billion, Oderno said.

    According to the information presented by him, the approved plans provide for the completion of the disbandment of two US army brigades in Germany - in Baumholder and Grafenwehr - this year. As a result, the US Army in Europe will have two brigades - one in Germany and one in Italy, the general said.

    Meanwhile, he continued, in the United States, reductions will affect such bases as Fort Bliss / Texas /, Fort Bragg / North Carolina /, Fort Campbell / Kentucky /, Fort Carson / Colorado /, Fort Drum / New York /, Fort Hood / Texas /, Fort Knox / Kentucky /, Fort Riley / Kansas /, Fort Stewart / Georgia / and Lewis-Mccord / Washington /.

      I don’t see anything good in reducing US NE - it seems that the bet has been made definitively on "soft power" (controlled chaos). We must prepare for a war for the minds in the global information space ...

        Some Lebanese media have linked the change of power to pressure from the United States, who "discovered" the secret fraud of the micro-monarchy regarding jihadists in Syria, as well as a number of illegal financial transactions. Therefore, the White House, having significant influence in Qatar, and made the monarch supposedly resign, dictating to him the choice, writes The Russian Times.

        A change of leader is not expected to lead to changes in Qatar’s political course, but it will fundamentally change the regional order in the country. Analysts predict that future changes will have huge consequences for the Middle East and Western foreign policy.

    And still growing public debt and the army is declining.

    US begins to reduce the number of its ground forces by 80 thousand people

    In general, in my opinion, Russia does not benefit from this event (reduction of ground forces), does not lose. Much more important for us is the movements of the Americans with their missile defense, and the reduction of the technological gap in the surface segment of the Navy. The article gives a detailed picture of only one of the components of the Anglo-Saxon strategy, in this case, against China. But the main semantic direction of creating regional "hot spots", of course, is against Russia. Since the Anglo-Saxons create destabilization in strategically important regions for Russia, taking into account the transfer of an element of instability from these regions to the interior of Russia. At the moment, Russia should be strengthened by the Foreign Ministry and foreign intelligence. in order to redirect this negative energy of these "springs" into the anti-American channel. In Turkey, Russia, in my opinion, laid the foundation for such a strategy of action.

      Russia does not win from this event (reduction of ground forces), does not lose

      It seems to me that he is still losing. What is wrong with the fact that amers spend on the CB segment and maintain bases on their territory? But having reduced all this, they get the opportunity to redirect resources to less harmless areas - for example, to the same missile defense system.

        I agree with you. When koment wrote, such a moment was in my thoughts, but the figure in terms of the redistribution of funds for the missile defense program is negligible.

      Too pretentious suicide. Rather, there is a historical pattern - one center of power inevitably falls apart into several.

    To come up with the term "controlled chaos" was much easier than not to get confused in it. Until we get to China or Russia, the legs will get bogged down by the very genitals!

" - We must learn from the gentlemen of the capitalists. Their billionaires are clearly not a match for ours - it’s time for our appointees to change, they have not learned how to manage billions in 20 years — the country is in hibernation, but our billionaires are in leaps and bounds in the West, the thief’s mentality has ripped off their own economic property and pros .... Yes, and people's servants are no better, they indulge, and they only know how to increase taxes, and from time to time to lower the ruble, there is no gang, not Americans, those patriots of both the country and its pockets and views and actions.

    Controlled chaos is simply a new definition of the old dividing and conquer dictum. What we clearly see in the example of Syria.

    If China and Russia continue to be so consistent and firm in their course and opinions, I’m sure that all this shushara supported by the USA and the West, starting from Al Qaeda and ending with simple migrants from Africa, will go against the West and the same USA, war and intolerance!

    Not a fact, for now the war of religions is unfolding. The main danger for kosher - helmsmen, waiting for their anti-Christ moshiach, comes from Orthodox Russia, and not from China, no matter how much ahead of us, the Spirit is above the flesh. And how to push China and Russia between their foreheads, do not teach this cashmere, it’s in their blood - "The high priests shouted: His blood is on us and on our children (Matthew 27:25). A crowd of thousands caught this exclamation, and a terrible curse rattled , called by the people on themselves. His blood on us and on our children - furiously screaming ferocious crowd, forgetting that it requires the blood of Whom, five days ago, called the Son of David and met with victorious cries: "Hosanna!" "- just what Euro-Chaos that.

    And in other Arab monarchies, the voluntary transfer of power is an unheard of matter. And in general - in the East this is not accepted.

    Pot calls the kettle black. and yours would be silent

    Over the past century, only Yeltsin voluntarily gave up power in Russia.
