Military Review

Geopolitics geoparalitika, or This oak still makes some noise?

37
Unprecedented situation in the newest world stories, formed around Snowden, offers a slightly different look at the "great chessboard" of the political space of the Earth and the "world champion" in geopolitical chess - the United States.


Unprecedentedness is obvious. Firstly, the scale of the invasion of privacy is unprecedented, secondly, from the world-famous freedom fighter for democracy and democracy, thirdly, caught by the hand, but not even apologetic, fourthly, without looking at what any decency requiring the return of a "state criminal." But the most important thing in this is that “not only small and weak like Poland, but also such pillars of freedom as France, or such fighters against imperialists like Russia, took the“ peak ”. We can assume that the leaders of other countries thank their Gods for the fact that it did not occur to Snowden to land at their airports.

Such a touching unity behind Uncle Sam makes you think that assorted analysts and forecasters telling about the end of the American empire and its imminent inevitable collapse in the foreseeable future are wrong at least in time, and they can be mistaken on the event itself.

The collapse of the USSR made the United States the only superpower. Attempts to “brighten up” the proud loneliness of the States by the European Union, China or Russia, for all their beauty, are in vain - not a single state or bloc of states is currently capable of competing with the United States of America for the foreseeable future.

And the United States themselves firmly hold their nose in the wind, really appreciating the capabilities of their competitors. And those for them are now the Islamic states and the PRC.

Having missed the anti-Americanism of radical Islam (which, in general, it is not surprising - they themselves were brought up and burned), the Yankees made the right conclusion, developed a plan and started to implement it with their usual vigorous energy.

As a result, the Islamic world is increasingly drawn into a whole system of conflicts, the causes of which are heavily implicated in political, economic, cultural and religious differences.

The Arab Spring was made by meteorologists, who studied on the same courses as gardeners of color revolutions in Europe. Libya, Syria and Egypt demonstrate not only the growing art of these specialists, but also the fact that they themselves are all the better able to stand aside, exposing their own either too stupid, too loyal, or stupid and loyal supporters. Afghanistan also fits into this policy - in the very near future, it will become a headache for Russia, which will become an additional obstacle to its ascent to superpower. At the same time - the height of professionalism - Israel was excluded from this hot “porridge”, and all attempts to rally the Arab world against the traditional enemy are stopped.

Harder with the PRC. The Chinese civilization is so hard for the European understanding, and accordingly, counter-actions, that here it is necessary to rely on traditional tools — economics, military strength, small, invisible to the layman’s eyes, injections and bites, which undermine the enemy. And these are long-lasting instruments (and the USSR is an example of this). But the effect is - China is beginning to experience serious difficulties in a number of areas. And we can assume that they will only increase.

With the effective localization of these players, the United States is able to maintain the status quo for an almost unlimited period of time, the length of which will depend on the art of playing the geopolitical chess of the Yankees themselves. Well, the "figures" can only hope for force majeure.

    The United States showed who the European master is in the house, it looks especially marvelous in the light of the latest angry statements from the lips of the European Parliament leader, this is a blatant violation of all diplomacy to land the plane with a foreign president and watch it .. a present for their Independence Day .. Snowden = he knows too much secrets, since it causes undisguised aggression of the USA ..
    While Bolivia threatens to close the US embassy, ​​although such a "spit" is a very soft answer ..

      The European Parliament and the United States are just like ours in Parliament. Party of Communist Oppositionists in the coalition and Party of Regions. The former speak such correct speeches, such sweet slogans, and as for the matter, they implicitly follow the guidelines of the Party of Regions.
      US cycled, Europe in a trance. They rushed to fulfill the will of the overlord not according to the laws, but according to concepts.

          Sergei! I don’t understand at all, a bunch of crooks of "interests" loudly declared that they are a party and not just a party, but Communists, in whose ranks there is not a single former member of the CPSU. Nice ride. They are not responsible for the CPSU and sat down on the ears of half-blind grandparents with their miserable retirement, about their position on social protection and improving their lives, but ... They are just cheap whores, clinging to the masters of life and serving them faithfully for good shmat white bread and butter, and caviar can be black. And in general, red is their way of life. Do not think that spilled blood. Red fish, red caviar, red lobsters and crabs, lobsters and lobsters in red sauce with red wine at the resorts of the Red Sea.

            Yuri! Here you are not quite right, the same Peter Simonenko is the leader of the Communist Party of Ukraine >>>
            In 1978 he joined the CPSU. In 1980, he took the post of secretary of the Donetsk regional organization of the Komsomol. Since 1989, he held senior positions in the Donetsk regional committee of the CPSU.
            After the liquidation of the USSR and the ban of the CPSU in 1991, Pyotr Simonenko took the post of deputy general director of Ukruglemash corporation. In 1993, the activities of the Communists were again legalized, and Petro Symonenko led the Communist Party of Ukraine.

              Sergei! Totally agree with you. You know that P. Simonenko is the same Komsomol slippery loach. He declared his abdication from the CPSU and the creation of the Communist Party of Ukraine, the Communist Party of Ukraine of a new type in 1993. in 2004, he said that the Communist Party is the cleanest, because it does not have a single oligarch, not a single criminal authority and criminal record, not a single former member of the CPSU. As they say in Odessa. "Where Simonenko will be held, not only the Jews, but also the Armenians have nothing to do."

                Do you even understand that the CPSU is the Communist Party Soviet Union And of course, after its ban in the year 91, there was no such country either. And as a result, after the permission of the activity, the Communist Party-Communist Party of Ukraine was registered, and in Russia you’ll decipher the Communist Party-yourself?
                And you do not need to cast a shadow on the fence and ascribe words that have never been spoken "not a single former member of the CPSU."

      The USA showed who is in the house of the European master

      Article minus. For not even an article, but some kind of absurdity.
      The US is losing its attention. And the fact that China did not betray Snowden, and the fact that Russia is laughing at US appeals, is a clear example. With their ridiculous attempt to catch Snowden, the United States showed that they did not own the situation and that they would not even be busy where their former agent was. Russia inflicted a crushing blow to the United States with its game. First, information was released that Bolivia would give political asylum, after the president of Bolivia was invited ... and all the US ate the bait and got hooked. In violation of all international laws, the West actually seized the plane of the president of an independent state.

      What is the result. The USA are losers, their special services are compromised, the US population does not believe in the authorities and is charging for the American winter, the countries of South America are united against the USA and the USA have lost control over their underbelly, European countries have gained a trump card in the struggle for the return of their sovereignty and are already using it, trust in the USA no one has it anymore, as well as to European countries, US citizens, including special services, understand that they can follow Snowden’s example and they won’t be punished ... and Snowden himself sips his Machito and continues to work against totalitarianism in the United States.

      And what is written in this "article" is absurdity not related to reality.

        So far, the USA has won the geopolitical combinations of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and others. Maybe Syria will be a “bummer" and so that Putin will clearly bend his line. On the other hand, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet cruiser <Moscow> has already gone on maneuvers to the shores of America, but should be in sight to reach the Syrian coast .. so .. without it, it will be problematic to frighten in the case of chago ..

    “Under the hood” were taken not only small and weak types of Poland, but also such pillars of freedom as France, or such fighters against imperialists as Russia.

    And in what way the Russian Federation "took the visor"? GDP is a very delicate troll - the United States cannot find fault with the Russian Federation, and with its throwing in search of Snowden it is increasingly discrediting itself. It is thought to me when the GDP talked about "cutting the piglet" he did not mean Snowden, but his leaders, and the latter cut themselves, with a corresponding screech and sense.

    NOW the USA, a little like a decrepit superpower, America possesses the military potential unsurpassed by any other country in the world, leads the world in scientific and technological achievements - it is 2-4 times ahead of the scale of investments in research and development work, yes and science cadres travel to the States, not back. But:
    - the volume of public debt exceeds GDP by 5 times;
    -Higher education is paid (up to 50 thousand dollars per semester), which holds back the educational level of the nation, and the program of the first two courses of American universities corresponds to the program of the penultimate and last classes of high school in Europe ...
    -industrial industry practically “migrated” from the USA to China and Southeast Asian countries, while jobs remained in the service sector.
    -loss of faith in the future of the nation. Lost intellect, spirituality.
    -resolution of same-sex marriage will lead to the fact that after 25 years, most in the United States will not be white.

      This is the mantra of the 90s. The US military potential is really impressive, but it is not relevant for today. The basis of US power is a chain of international bases and ACG. However, this is not enough to win modern wars, and Afghanistan and Iraq are clear examples of this. US lost to Afghanistan, what kind of military power are we talking about? So their defeat cannot be compared with the situation of the USSR, when the USA and all NATO and the entire Arab world were on the side of the Taliban. Today, half of the AUG already stands in ports and does not have the technical capabilities for the normal execution of work. So this is still not a real budget reduction, which will be in a month.

      What US developments have been introduced in the last 5 years? In which sectors do they lead? Give examples .if you own the information. The dynamics of the past 10 years are exactly the opposite. The US does invest a lot in science, but on the same money, China or Russia is developing ten times more. In the United States, specialists have not traveled for many years. Some are simply outbid. however, the outcome is not always positive. In the field of IT-technologies, India has already overtaken the USA, China is bypassing in other directions, Russia dominates in other sectors. For example, in nuclear energy and space technologies ...

      So everything is a little different, the United States is really so far the first in terms of GDP, but 85% of this is due to services. So what is self-deception and deception of the whole world, the dollar is already at its last gasp, as soon as it falls you forget that there is the USA and the USA AUG.

        -Russia dominates in other sectors, such as nuclear energy and space technology.
        Alas - the complete set of "UNION" is almost half - import. Even the platform and the rods are French.
        And what space technology. The FIRST instrument (modernization) on the spacecraft SU integrated circuits was put into operation in 1988. And there is not a single device with the use of processors - control systems were developed in the late 60s. There were only upgrades to individual nodes. We look forward to 2015.
        The US share in world aerospace production is more than 50% of sales, in the production of computer equipment - 33%, in the production of medicines and biological products - 30%. Only in the production of communications equipment is Japan one percentage point ahead of the United States: 26 and 25%, respectively. In the field of biotechnology, the Yankees are also leading. R&D expenditures in the United States account for more than 33% of the world, they almost double the corresponding expenses of Japan and China, which occupy the second and third places in the world according to this indicator (13% and 11% of world expenditures, respectively).
        2012 Nobel Prize in Physics received American David Wynland of the National Institute of Standards and Frenchman Serge Arosh of Ecol Normal
        Two American professors received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry this year: Robert Lefkowitz of Duke University in North Carolina and Brian Kobilka of Stanford University in California
        The 2012 Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to two American scientists: Alvin Roth and Lloyd Shapley ...
        But - more than 80% of American Nobel laureates have Russian roots.
        In nuclear power, yes.
        -Today, half of the AUG already stands in the ports ...
        Carriers never enthralled me, but for the nuclear submarines: Russia has 21, and the US 71. Moreover, there are no boats carrying more than 16 missiles. The USA has 18 Ohio-class submarines carrying 24 missiles.
        USA - LEADERS IN SHIP PRO. At the end of 2011, the U.S. Navy had a total of 24 ships equipped with Aegis MBIUS, including five Ticonderoga class cruisers and 19 Arleigh Burke class destroyers. In the coming years, the Agency for Missile Defense and the US Navy plan to equip the system with Aegis 22 cruisers and almost all destroyers - 62 units.
        Naval missile defense poses an increased threat to Russia's strategic nuclear forces.
        -dollar is already on its last legs ...
        OUR those in power will not allow him to "die."
        - So cho is self-deception.
        Hatred for good has never been beneficial.
        The main thing is to survive for 5 ... 7 years and not stumble off the intended path, simultaneously destroying the 5-column. Do not let them repeat 1991.

      For reference.
      The second world economy lags behind the United States by only 10%. Guess who.
      The second world economy invests in only one of its centers as much as the United States if you count at the rate of a hamburger .. Guess who.
      The number of scientific personnel in the country of the second economy of the world is more than two times greater than the number of students studying in higher educational institutions and scientific centers in the United States. Guess who.
      Well, the rest is right.
      If not for the printing press, then in a year the second world economy will become the first. And so for another three or four years, printed candy wrappers will be shuffled by the world.

    Given the effective localization of these players, the United States is able to maintain the status quo for an almost unlimited period of time, the length of which will depend on the art of playing in the geopolitical chess of the Yankees themselves. Well, the "figures" can only rely on force majeure.
    The author either does not own the situation or misleads the readers intentionally. America is bankrupt, a soap bubble. The economy of this country is on the edge of a bottomless abyss and only numerous local wars and widespread chaos can save it. Which they do. But, recently the situation has been developing a little differently than they planned. They hoped for an oppressed consciousness and universal hatred of everyone for everyone, but it didn’t work out! Citizens of the planet Earth understand more clearly - who is the puppeteer, what goals they pursue and in what ways they achieve this. This gives rise to a spontaneous understanding of the need to rally the entire working humanity against a single world behind the scenes and puppet authorities. Moreover, there are much fewer of them than those who support their parasitic existence. And one more, in fact, the MOST important point - the Higher powers, the Universal Reason (call it what you like) on the side of those who follow the path of creation, mutual understanding and peacefulness, and not those who kill for their own benefit!

      I join your assessment, although I did not put a minus article. The author simply looks at the 2's dimensional plane, instead of looking at the 3's dimensional volume. It just seems to me that the mechanisms that used to work perfectly just now fail, and the further, the more. And chaos is just a consequence of these failures in management, hence the confusion of those who had previously very actively and harshly intervened in all the events that were happening. And the grandmasters just do not really understand why the combinations stopped giving the expected results. Time works against them, and they seem to understand this ...

        If you listen to the author of the article, you only have one hand up the hill and surrender to the mercy of the winners. And if you listen to common sense, it turns out exactly the opposite. The main problem of the United States today is the lack of industry. And they will not be able to carry out reindustrialization that the dollar has a very vague future. And China is on its heels. And the United States can do nothing about it, since it was they who brought their industry to China in the early 70s. But then the Chinese agreed to work for a piece of cake rice, now the situation has changed dramatically. The United States can’t change it .... So all the author’s gloomy forecasts are baseless. But the military threat is more tangible (IMHO).

    The US is losing its attention. And the fact that China did not betray Snowden, and the fact that Russia is laughing at US appeals, is a clear example.

    So US attention is losing or impact?

    I don’t sympathize with the USA, but there is such a saying <the one who laughs last laughs well>
    So far, the USA has won the geopolitical combinations of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and others. Maybe Syria will be a “bummer" and so that Putin will clearly bend his line. On the other hand, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet cruiser <Moscow> has already gone on maneuvers to the shores of America, but must be in sight to reach the Syrian coast .. so ..

    What is the result. The USA are losers, their special services are compromised, the US population does not believe in the authorities and is charging for the American winter, the countries of South America are united against the USA and the USA have lost control over their underbelly,

    Strategically, until the world comes off the dollar needle, you can brand USA every day.
    The United States felt like a loser only after Vietnam, and they were afraid only when the USSR missiles were in Cuba ..

    With the effective localization of these players, the United States is able to maintain the status quo for an almost unlimited period of time, the length of which will depend on the art of playing the geopolitical chess of the Yankees themselves. Well, the "figures" can only hope for force majeure.

    The article shows one side of the coin, and not the words about the other!
    The impending economic collapse is forcing America to take risky steps. And such lonely fighters like Julian Assange or Edward Snowden do not fit into a controlled process, and in this matter every little thing is important !!!
    So the first punctures appeared.
    They wanted to take the embassy by storm, then they had to land the aircraft in Vienna. The world is gaining an understanding of what is happening and the danger for the United States in tacitly indulging opponents of other states. Those who are now proving their commitment with foam at the mouth will easily go under the wing of the same China.
    Everything can collapse in one day, like a house of cards, without even resorting to weapons.
    US soap bubble!

    Curious comments (those related to the topic of the article) and curious statistics went wrong (I assumed that I would go into the “minus”, given the world outlook prevailing on the forum).
    I never called for “raising my hands and giving up,” but I was always guided by one rule: “fairy tales are told to the weak, truth is told to the strong,” and he took into account one circumstance: “the appearance of a large number of heroes always becomes the cost of peacetime.” :)
    Regarding the comments:
    1. "Soap bubble" - so be it. But he feels great from the time of Khrushchev, and if the USA suddenly has a runny nose, then not only Europe but also China and the Russian Federation “sneeze” and “heat”. An example is the crisis of recent years. Will he burst? I think - if only by chance. Because no developed country (including China and the Russian Federation) is interested in this collapse, its consequences will be disastrous for them.
    2. The US scientific and technical base is unattainable for anyone and they are not slowing down the pace - for this it is enough to simply read at least news sites. For individual developments, individual states may be ahead, but "in the hospital as a whole" the situation is obvious.
    3. US Armed Forces versus the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation or the Armed Forces of the People's Republic of China, or (which, however, is unrealistic) the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation + the Armed Forces of the People's Republic of China (unless, of course, we do not take into account the nuclear apocalypse). Do you need comparisons?
    4. The situation with Snowden is extremely revealing - all countries (alas, including the Russian Federation), with the exception of a couple of pseudo-states, refused to help the whistleblower, and European countries did not directly shout international laws, but only at the request of the United States.
    5. In the US withdrawal from a number of hot spots, one can also see weakness. I agree. But I see problems for the Russian Federation in Afghanistan, problems for Islam in all key places (Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Afghanistan), and just in case - the same RA with its Muslim population hangs on one of the borders of this region ...
    6. The Chinese, who require two cups of rice instead of one, are a headache in the first place for the CCP, and only in the second (or even the third, or even fourth) - the USA.
    7. US intelligence agencies, of course, are losers, but losers that control almost all the information traffic of the leading countries of the world, and how then to evaluate the intelligence services of other countries? Do you have any idea what the new NSA center will be capable of?
    This is, if briefly and without facts, which, if necessary, I can cite, naturally. I didn’t want to compose an opus.
    However, if there is interest in a respected community, I can expand in more detail the individual premises and conclusions made.
    PS Very amused appeal to the universal mind ...

    - By the way, something is not heard on the Internet of local human rights defenders! Who heard what they think about who is allowed to invade their privacy? Probably, this news found them on that territory (on a vacation combined with a briefing), where it is better not to say anything on this matter ?!

    A racketeer can also be regarded as a debtor ... But who will undertake to recover this debt? Especially when a mess begins around and the "roof" would not hurt?

      At the moment, the United States is doing everything to stay with its own, this is such a way out of the economic crisis in the American way.
      Actually, I never doubted that the Americans would not pay their debts. Of all the possible solutions, they simply chose general chaos.
