Journalist Alexei Pushkov: We are witnessing the beginning of the sunset of the USA

79
“Russia no longer claims the role of a global power No. XXUMX, but it no longer intends to play up to the United States,” says Alexei Pushkov, a well-known TV host and politician
The author's analytical program “PostScript”, which he has been leading on the TVC channel, is 15 (!) Years old. And for the past year and a half, Alexey Pushkov has been doing this, already being the chairman of one of the key committees of the State Duma - on international affairs.


"AIF": - Alexey Konstantinovich, admit: deputy status helps you to make the "Postscript" sharper and more interesting?

A.P .: - Of course, I do not use secret documents in the program. But the circle of communication has certainly expanded, there are more contacts with people who make decisions ... Recently, I visited Baku and met with President Aliyev. And before that there were meetings with the President of Finland, the foreign ministers of a number of states. The fact that I head the Russian delegation to the PACE gives a very accurate sense of the ideological nerve of European politics. When you fish, it is better to keep your hand on the fishing line - you immediately feel the fish.

Who has overvoltage?

AiF: - What, in your opinion, has changed in these countries and the world over these 15 years?

A.P .: - When I started to post “Postscript”, it was the 98 year. This was the end of the Yeltsin era, when the president almost no longer led the country, many issues were solved by people who were not authorized to do so in a narrow circle. And the leitmotif of my program was that I had to leave Yeltsinism. I believed that this system leads to the disintegration of the country, to the weakness of its international positions, to the fact that we are constantly losing ground. Recall, at least, our monstrous position on Yugoslavia: we actually gave the go-ahead to the destruction of this country. Another thing is that we were too weak to resist the West. Since then, much has changed. Although I believe that we did not quite break up with the Yeltsin era: oligarchy, the oil and gas character of our economy is a legacy of that time. But still we live in another country. If we talk about foreign policy, Russia has established itself as one of the poles of the modern world. Yes, we do not claim, as the USSR, the role of global power number 1. But this is correct: such claims always lead to an over-exertion of forces, to what the Americans call "over-expansion", an excessive expansion of obligations. US debt in 16 trillion dollars - above their GDP! - the result of this. They have too many commitments around the world, including the military: most of the funding for NATO comes from the States. And, by the way, Paul Kennedy, a professor at Yale University, proved that it was the overvoltage of forces that caused the fall of all the great powers: Spain, France, Germany ...

I believe that we are witnessing the beginning of the sunset of the United States, which can last several decades. America does not cope with the role of superpower, losing control over global processes. And Russia, on the contrary, is being restored and becomes a point of attraction for very many. We do not want to agree on what we agreed to before. Three times they vetoed attempts to make Syria second Libya. Now the Kremlin has declared that we are ready to consider the question of granting asylum to Edward Snowden (who exposed the top-secret program of the US intelligence). How will this be perceived by Washington? Of course, negative. The man gave out top-secret information, and Russia is ready to shelter him! Ten years ago this was impossible.

"AIF": - You are talking about the overvoltage of US forces. And Russia is not overstrained? Take, for example, plans to re-equip our army with 20 trillion rubles ...

AP: - We have not yet approached the surge. In contrast to the USA and the USSR, we even have practically no military bases anywhere. In recent years, the States have fought 4 wars: Yugoslavia, Iraq (this war alone cost several trillion dollars, and the costs are still there: troops are formally withdrawn, but 50 troops continue to work there under contract), Afghanistan and Libya. During this time, we had only one military conflict - with Georgia. But the Russian leadership did not take over Tbilisi and establish another power in Georgia. Although technically it was not a question: 2 hours - and Tanks in Tbilisi ... We did not follow the path of expanding military-political obligations. We are cooperating with NATO on some programs in Afghanistan - pilot training, transit, but our troops are not there. For 20 years, our peacekeepers have been only in South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Kosovo. And now we are considering the possibility of sending 300 peacekeepers to the Golan Heights. This, again, is not a burden on the budget. I believe that we are very balanced, restrained. Although there is a category of the population - 15-20%, which wants foreign policy to be tougher, so that we are more respected and feared.

Europe is crazy

"AIF": - According to your estimates, how will the conflict develop in Syria?

AP: - A bloody balance has been established in the country: the government of Bashar al-Assad controls 75-80% of the country, the rest is the rebels. There are camps in Jordan where American instructors teach militants. And in Turkey there are CIA officers who are engaged in the distribution armory streams. The militants make raids from these territories, but they are clearly unable to overthrow the regime. Of those who have been critical of the president, many fear militants more than Assad. For all his shortcomings, the main religious and ethnic communities of Syria lived in peace with him - Shiites, Sunnis, Christians, Druze, Kurds ... And the people who are trying to seize Damascus carry the ideology of radical Islam. They have a slogan: "Shiites - to the cemetery, Christians - to Beirut!" And there are 2 million Christians in Syria ...

AiF: - You mentioned the “nerve” of European politics. There is a feeling that this nerve is now bruised somewhere below the belt. The euro crisis has faded into the background, but everyone is discussing the legalization of same-sex marriages ...

AP: - In France, 200, thousands of people who want to live in same-sex marriages, have imposed their agenda on the whole nation, splitting society. Now in the UK, in Germany, such marriages will also be recognized. And it worries me that soon these innovations can be declared of common European value, which Europe is ready to implant with the confidence of the Crusaders ... In Azerbaijan, for example, they say that such a path is unthinkable for them. But Azerbaijan (like Russia, by the way) is a member of the Council of Europe. And who said that in the Council of Europe they will not say once: we cannot discriminate against sexual minorities in any European country! I am afraid that politicians themselves do not really understand where their people will lead with such a one-sided “same-sex” policy ...

        Is it only around the world. And we have China nearby.
        In my opinion, one should not rush to the weakening of America. America is far away and will not let us bleed - the consequences are too great.
        But who will not look at the consequences, it is a multi-billion dollar China - with a weak America, it is he who will lay claim to world domination - and this is precisely what he can arrange a blood bath for us.
        The current silent intervention of China in the Far East can be easily transformed into an armed one with a weak America.
        And how much they know how to let blood know in my own skin.

          I absolutely agree - if we have to fight, then not with the Yankees, spoiled by civilization, but with Chinese fans who will trample like cockroaches, despite the losses. They need free land and they have it at their side. And against this background, the frantic sale by our leadership of the most advanced military equipment to the Chinese, which is not even in our own armed forces, raises a lot of questions. Is this a poor mind or something worse?

            There are always threats. and from China. Only they have close by not only our Far East but also the vast and empty territory of Mongolia, Kazakhstan is even larger. Yes, and the northern territories themselves are empty.
            They do not need territory and resources.
            I think the Chinese are pragmatic and well aware that they will receive resources about us without war, with unpredictable consequences. Besides the strategic nuclear forces there are also tactical Y.O. which will quickly nullify any numerical advantage.
            In addition, the territory of China is very vulnerable. It is enough to blow up the dams on the Yangtze and Yellow River and half of China will cease to exist.
            The Chinese are well aware of this and therefore limit their ambitions themselves.
            But prosperity is also not worth it. You always need to be ready and count all the options and get ready for the worst-case scenario.

      And even then, not immediately, but only when the dust settles and the radiation level drops to an acceptable level.

      Of course it's a pity, oh, better let it rot and roll slowly ... it will be cheaper for us ... Yes, yes! CHEAPER! If the "horsemen" start to roll quickly, then the entire financial system of the world will collapse together with the United States ... which is based on the "forever green ruble"! For example, in China, these dollars are not measured! The second Chinese wall can be built. And in order to strengthen their economy, they need to get rid of the US currency ... they want it, but they cannot ... they will quickly start returning dollars back to the United States, immediately it will depreciate, and after it the financial systems of the world will also fall. What then will be in the sludge - China has mountains of their consumer goods, but they will not be able to sell them anywhere, since the world's finances have turned to dust ... Similarly, we will sit on gas, oil, but there will be no currency. So let them roll on quietly. The world will be quieter.

        Right. Few people know, but Putin also said that he gave the order to reduce the share of the dollar in gold reserves at the end of his second presidential term.
        At one of the BRICS summits, it was decided to trade between the two countries in national currencies. Moreover, the two strongest Asia-Pacific economies Japan and China also signed an agreement on the transition to settlements in national currencies. the weakening and getting rid of the dollar goes gradually. Otherwise, if it collapses at once, it can bury the entire world financial system and it will not seem to us much either.
        You are absolutely right, let them rot out gradually.

          A colleague, this family and the clique behind it, have achieved their power exclusively by political assassinations. An example is the murder of a German lobbyist in the tsarist entourage of Rasputin, the murder of the Archduke in Sarajevo, the murder of Stolypin, etc., which led to a carefully forgiven chain of events, to play off the Austro-Hungarian, German, Ottoman and Russian empires, which destroyed each other, and someone still remained sitting on a golden throne with a crown crowned with Kohinoor, a stone stolen from an Indian rajah. The elimination of Princess Diana, who overshadowed the old woman and her homosexual son (the main reason for the divorce, which coincided with the publication of the butler's book where he revealed the essence of Charles and the cover operation in the form of Camilla Parker Bowl), is all in the spirit of this family. Even the elimination of Baba, who was "disappointed" in the queen and repented to Russia, the elimination of Hess, on the eve of liberation, etc. The elimination of only three people and one abortion (the old woman, I hope, will soon go to her horned master herself), will forever shake this Caudle and the world will become cleaner. Even Wahhabism will come to naught.

      from the collapse of the United States nothing good will come, it will be about the same as with the collapse of the USSR, a bunch of local wars on the territory of the former USA, crazy dictators destroying the people in batches, hordes of military "professionals" who, upon completion of everything, will rush to no one knows where. Well, the most terrible concern is the stock of nuclear, bacterological, chemical and other weapons of mass destruction, in whose hands it will end up and where will it go.

    I always respected Alexey Pushkov for his balanced and interesting comments on world events. There are more such people in the Duma. Regarding the article, not so much America is dying there as the whole Western civilization with their capitalism and attempts to solve global problems without taking into account the opinions of 6 billions of people.

    We are witnessing the beginning of sunset in the USA
    How long can this prayer be repeated? I still remember Leontiev in 1999 foreshadowing the collapse of the dollar: "But hello. Two months later, the dollar is crushed. But goodbye!" Well, where is the collapse ?! Here, America has more debt than GDP. Well, try to take this debt! So they gave it to you, HA-HA! This is a bandit state and a crook. They will print green pieces of paper, and if you don’t give them raw materials and goods in exchange, you will get a club in the head. And this system works great. How many times has America been fucked in the last 100 years, and how many have we? That's the same.

    if there is no way to defeat the United States in a hot war (and only such a victory can become a revenge for defeat in the cold), then there should be a tough confrontation, practically, on all issues. This is about self-esteem.

      I do not suffer from revanchism; I have no love for the United States. But just what is “tough confrontation on all issues”? There is a lot to learn from the Americans, too, since I never piled Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and Iowa farmers. And self-respect - let someone try to take it away. Igor, in the states both you and me are not all enemies. In the former "brotherhood" there are no less of them.

        tough confrontation - this means that if they promised to deliver the s-300 to Syria and Iran, then they need to deliver; if the Magnitsky law was adopted there, and Obama signed it, then formally "and the ban on entry into Russia should apply to all signatories; if General Kalugin fled, and the United States granted him political asylum, then it would be worth taking care of its elimination, ignoring the decision and guarantees of the United States ; if the United States does not consider it necessary to adhere to the ABM Treaty, then we should not adhere to the agreements that are inconvenient for us ...
        And note, always leading "the second violin" in such games, there is a full moral right to make the response even more harsh than that of the opponent.

Then Gorbi helped break up the USSR and thereby pour new enormous resources into the West and, first of all, America. Well, the constant wars with which America constantly resolves its crises.

Are they rapidly turning blue? This is the main sign of the decay of the state. Gave the world AIDS and other misfortunes of "democracy" - get a boomerang over the tinsel!

Are you talking about the USA? At first, I would have rolled the CYNISM deeply and "ordered to fill it with cement, so as not to rip" And the US will bend like that, the fin.properties are deep.

    The US national debt for the first time exceeded $ 16 trillion. ... In the USA and in the world, everyone perfectly understands that the US debt is irrevocable money. And how much money will not return - $ 15-20-30 trillion - is not so important.
    The Statue of Liberty seems a little nervous, seeing that US debt exceeds 20 percent of global GDP.
    Analysts in this regard recalled that the "ceiling" of the US national debt at the moment is $ 16,394 trillion, and the new president of the country will have to raise it. In the past year, difficult negotiations between Democrats and Republicans over this issue nearly led the government to default.

    What are these forecasts for?
    Sunset, rollback, rollback ...
    In December 2012, the lease of the Fed's printing press ended. More precisely, licenses for the issue of pieces of paper with "drawings of dead presidents."
    We made calculations in a rush here - what will happen to the world? With the States ?? With Russia ??? With banks ???? With us precious ????????
    Absolutely - NOTHING.
    Nothing happened. And even this topic was somehow casually, inadvertently - pushed somewhere into the far corner.
    .
    It has been half a year 2013.
    Our unfinished prime minister, together with his accomplices, is starting another wave of "privatization". 2 trillion want to get. 2000 "watermelons".
    Does anyone believe that this will benefit Russia?
    They announced that they would introduce an "economic amnesty". It is clear to the last phenylketonurik in Russia that this crap won't work, that there is no point. No ... the movements continue. Now someone thread in the State Duma .. for the initiative will receive a grant. Or GRANTS ....
    Dollar - jumped. Euro - jumped.
    Our bankers are shouting to the whole world - "Right now we will start buying dollars .. uncontrollably !!!"
    So maybe privatization is intended to support America at least a bit.
    ....
    Does such a government want to raise Russia?
    As for me - so they are driving her hard into another round of terrible showdowns and instability.
    And on the streets - a poorly managed mass of a different mentality. Hungry, embittered, warmed up.
    .
    And here we are poured balm on the soul, lips smeared with honey - Wait, guys, right now the USA will fall apart. We’ll heal, everything is turning to us.
