Anatoly Wasserman: America is doomed to confrontation with the whole world



During the next civil war in the Roman Republic, the leader of one of the opposing sides, Gnei Gneevich Pompey, nicknamed Magn - the Great, proclaimed: "He who is not with me is against me." In response, his opponent Guy Gaevich Julius, nicknamed Caesar - most likely from the town of Cere, where several generations of this branch of the Yuliyev family lived - said: "He who is not against me is with me." History retained the result: the bulk of the citizens of the republic refrained from supporting Pompey, Julius defeated him and became the first emperor for life — master. True, his life after the victory lasted only about four years - he was killed by conspirators, committed to the republican tradition of the most frequent replacement of all leaders. But this has nothing to do with the fate of Pompey.

I have already spoken about two qualitatively different types of empires - colonial and continental - and that the main part of the key shortcomings of colonial empires (such as Britain, France or in a slightly improved version of the United States of America) has no place in the continental empires ( of which the brightest is undoubtedly Russia, and the most complete embodiment of the ideal of the continental empire is part of the history of Russia, called the Soviet Union). But there are many other qualitatively different things, denoted by the same terms. In particular, this is the term "superpower". There are at least two understandings of this term known to me.

In Soviet times, it was customary to say: a superpower is a state to which no other state can impose its will. And the other undoubted superpower - the United States of America - is still guided by the directive of its National Security Council, adopted somewhere at the turn of the 1950 – 60-s. In this directive, the United States is set the goal of ensuring that there are no states or intergovernmental structures in the world to which the United States of America cannot impose its will.

Obviously, there can be many superpowers in the Soviet sense of the term. Moreover, since the appearance of the concept of unacceptable mutual damage, the number of superpowers in this understanding can theoretically be calculated in the tens. For example, France can hardly be considered a great power, but at the same time its nuclear potential guarantees that if France does not want to fulfill the will of any other power, she will hardly be able to impose its own will - it will be afraid of retribution. So France is a superpower.

But there can be only one superpower in the American sense. Therefore, the United States of America within its concept of superpower is doomed to confront the rest of the world, because even those to whom they imposed their will are hardly fully satisfied with this, even without looking at the massive propaganda about the United States - the good and the only.

This turnover is taken from the cycle of the novels “Labyrinths of Echo” by Svetlana Yuryevna Martynchik, who writes (at first - with the participation of her husband Igor - alas, I do not know the middle name - Stepin) under the pseudonym Max Fry. In the magical world of this cycle, as a result of the fierce struggle of various magical orders, the Order of the Semistrailer survived, on this basis declared to be benevolent and unique. True, Fry's all ends well: this order does not fully crush his whole world for himself simply because almost all the active members of the order are absorbed in intrigues, so they do not pay attention to what is happening outside of it.

Propaganda of benevolence and uniqueness of the United States of America is so active precisely because it has to overcome — the subconscious, or the quite conscious and clearly articulated, but in any case, the inevitable - the rejection by most of the peoples of their own submission to the United States.

And this same American concept of a superpower makes almost the entire world a natural ally of Russia. After all, we do not set ourselves the goal of subjugating others - we only need others to not subjugate us. Accordingly, anyone who opposes submission is our ally.

The result is unlikely to be significantly different than in the era of the confrontation of the slogans of Gney Gneevich Pompey Magna and Guy Gaevich Julius Caesar.

          The United States is strong in its economic expansion of the colonies and other countries, through the dollar, simply by robbing, forcing and exploiting others, a kind of artificially created superpower that exists only at the expense of force. Cut off their economic tentacles, drive them into the borders of North America and that’s all, they will become an ordinary country like Argentina. And only one country on the planet has territory, resources and people in order to be a natural superpower in its development, this is Russia! In other words, Russia is a superpower upon the fact of its birth and existence, and even its weakness cannot be lower than its superpower.

      There are no eternal empires, all empires ended as a result of the conduct of constant countless warriors to conquer the world. The USA is also soon kirdyk. Remember Obama the last president of America -...... Paul Kreig.2014 becomes the hour of reckoning for the United States. Russia and China are disconnecting their international trade from the dollar, which will entail a large drop in demand for the dollar and a drop in its exchange rate.

      The US economy did not recover after the fall of 2008, but only weakened. Due to import dependence, a drop in the dollar will spur prices and lead to a decrease in living standards ...

      This year we can see the destruction of NATO and even the EU due to contradictions on the issue of increasing confrontation with Russia, which Washington insists, and the real consequences of this confrontation for Europe ... One of two options is likely - or the dollar will be abandoned and its collapse - that will complete Washington’s status as superpower, or Washington will launch a military conflict with Russia and China.

      And it seems that the world is already recovering. Germany yearns for Russia: conflict over Ukraine deepens crisis of German identity

      "Germany yearns for Russia: the conflict over Ukraine deepens the crisis of German identity
      How much do Germans belong to the West?
      Russian crisis stimulates identity conflict
      Many Germans feel a special connection with Russia. This makes the crisis in Ukraine especially dangerous for Berlin, as it raises important questions about the very nature of German identity. Are we deeply rooted in the West, as most people think?
      To this day, Germans and Russians maintain a special relationship. There is no other country and other people with whom the relations of the Germans would be so emotional and so contradictory. The connection goes deep into German family history, shaped by two world wars and the 40-year history of East Germany. German families can still share their stories of cruel, but also kind-hearted and soulful Russians. We disdain the primitiveness of the Russians, while cherishing their culture and the Russian soul.

    no, not every superpower is doomed, only one that constantly makes big bets, like in a casino, cannot do away forever. A power that does not set the task of omnipotence in the world can exist for an infinitely long time, it is just that this course must be prescribed in the constitution. They say we have the right to invade, only if the interests of our state, legitimate interests, are violated, or countries violate an agreement signed directly with the participation of Russia. I demand to consider all other contracts as not valid !!!! Let each country write an agreement with us, depending on the mentality, ethnicity and resource benefits.

    The American concept of a superpower makes almost the whole world a natural ally of Russia.
    The main thing is when the USA itself realizes what was said above, so that when they go to the "bottom" they do not drag this world along with them, unleashing a global catastrophe.
    Since it will not be possible to pay off the world, and the United States is not ready to sit in a "debt hole".
    So, the unleashing of confrontation in Ukraine may be the starting point towards the beginning of the end. But we need to really prepare for a confrontation with "grayness" and not only from the outside.

    The United States, well, a very peaceful country, and its soldiers, only "bring laughter and joy to people", though with the help of "Stealth" and "Tomahawks", for example like this:

    or like this:

    what kind smiles aren't they?
    or so ...

    It also happens...

    Thomas Jefferson 3rd President of the United States in 1801-1809, one of the founding fathers of this fucking state.

    Whenever I remember that the Lord is just, I tremble for my country.
    (Yes, I really tremble at the thought of my country, all I have to do is think that the Lord God is just and will reward her as she deserves.)

    In general, now the West as a whole is very similar to Rome during its decline. Europe - to Western Rome - older and more decayed; America - to the East, which is in a more advantageous position from the point of view of security, but, as practice shows ... Their policy is also quite Roman - "divide and rule"; they themselves knock their "provinces" into a heap, and all the rest are only crushed and crushed - the USSR, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Iraq on the verge of collapse, there is nothing to say about Mali and Sudan ...

    Barbarians are bought with gifts, so long as they do not sharpen their swords in the direction of Rome - it is better to let them go and kill their own. But even such seemingly devoted barbarians as Ukraine are not taken under the wing of the "Empire" - for they remember how the total expansion of the empire ended last time; the army of Rome mainly began to consist of recent barbarians, and somehow did not want to fight for the glory of the banners with the eagles. Does it look like anything? ..

    The analogies would be funny if they were not so obvious. And because of this, many deeds of our time seem not just ridiculous - criminal. Rome stood a thousand years - and fell apart; to say nothing of the miserable 200 years of the United States - and even more so of the 50 years of the European Union.

    By the way, exactly the same thing can be said not only with regard to the West, but also about us and you. If you don’t look back on history and hope that Holy Russia stood for a thousand years, then you can get it ... Byzantium stood even more, but it was Christians, first, the Christians, ruined, and then the Turks and their Istanbul pinned. And where is this Byzantium now? ..

    The fall of Rome remained in history in conjunction with a catastrophic decline in morality and ethics; and recently, exactly the same thing is happening throughout modern "Rome", and not only there. It is not for nothing that America so rushes with its armies for the "outcast" countries - in the conditions of the total decomposition of society, a small handful of "barbarians" are enough to crush the seemingly eternal Rome.

    BRICS will agree to switch to gold settlements in settlements, other countries will follow them and the dollar will float, they will begin to get rid of it, and with this the hegemony of the United States will end, it will have to work like everyone else, and not print unsecured papers and live off the whole world. On how many dollars are printed in America, you can buy a hundred times with giblets. It is high time for resource-forming countries to come to an agreement and sell resources only for gold, in extreme cases, for currency with its gold supply.

    The slogans of Gnei Gneevich Pompey Magna and Gaius Gayevich Julius Caesar - a tradition of distant antiquity.
    In nature, everything is wisely thought out and arranged.
    There must be a balance.
    And dictatorship at the level of international terror is the reality that the United States demonstrate in the modern world upset this balance.
    Russia opposes this and on the example of the BRICS state timidly, but with hope they are waiting for the end of the gendarme policy of reprisals against those who are objectionable to Washington.
    Here it turns out:

    .
    If there must be a balance (you are right) then after the collapse of the United States, no one else will appear.
    Before the United States, there were both Turkey (with the Sultan) and France (with Napoleon) and "United" Europe (with its own crusades) and Germany (with Hitler).
    If there was a territory, there would be a tyrant.
    Politics is the same everywhere: There is an enemy, There is a thief, We feel bad, because they feel good! Well, you need two components of 1. Anyone who can speak 2 well. Several million idiots in whom the ear replaces the brain. That is, a new, God-chosen, power.

    Yes, everything is clear ... Those who want to understand, only need to remember that this America is full of people who are beautiful and worthy of respect. It is necessary to fight not with the country, but with the financial system, change the institution of banks and trade relations, forget about the concept of "democracy" as a nightmare.
    .... Well and often remember everyone about the fact that they are us ..

    She went in big three letters - this "America" ​​Does she even remember how she earned her independence? Maybe they should be reminded? When the Russian squadron entered the Hudson. The British fleet, aimed at suppressing the "separatist" colonies, turned around and went home! 17 colonies declared their independence. Does America even remember to whom it owes its existence?

    Ah, Anatoly Oleksandrovich and put on Kapitaliy Hill. Because when semi-literate people gather in one place and they don’t have a smart leader endowed with knowledge of world history and other sciences, nothing but a robber band can happen. What we see today in politics.

    not everything is so rosy.
    Russia has only two allies - the Army and the Navy. there are no others and never will be.
    Even those nations - which Russia saved in their own country from holding back and cutting out - Serbia, Bulgaria, Montenegro - even they supported the sanctions against the Russian Federation.
    it's silly to talk about the collapse of America. The Soviet Union was incomparably more powerful than Russia, and then - the economy could not stand the arms race. The United States has only become stronger since then.
    The United States received a slap in the face from Russia. they will not forgive us for this.
    pay attention - what kind of jackals howl rose in recent days - the Czech president said yesterday that it would be time to scare Russia in a genuine, military way. He didn’t blurt it out, obviously the American masters ordered.

    This is because Russia is an empire vice versa.

    Unlike all the others, the metropolis was engaged in the development of the periphery, and not in exploitation and looting.

    Take at least federal programs for the economic and social development of indigenous peoples.

    "The very name" fascism "comes from the Latin word" fasza "- which poured into the Italian" fashio ". This is how a bunch of rods from a lictor was called in ancient Rome. with a hatchet stuck in it. ”The Nazis played on the legend that exists in many nations about the wise father and sons, whom he gave the task to break a broom / broom / facet.

    The main slogan of the Nazis for their members is “while we are one, we are invincible". Both the story and the slogan are good. They teach the right thing. But how was this refracted in fascism as in a political movement? By the way, the fascists loved another slogan - "whoever is not with us is against us." This slogan is generally of biblical origin.

    The American Empire was built according to the law of the chicken coop: beat your neighbor, shri on the lower and do not forget about the distant (about Russia). For the distant one will rejoice and nah ... you are not. Just like any pyramid, by the way, is the most stable figure. But at the same time there is absolutely no development or it is minimal, as in the simplest unicellular ones.

    For example, France can hardly be considered a great power, but at the same time its nuclear potential guarantees: if France does not want to fulfill the will of any other power, then it is unlikely to impose its will on it - it will be afraid of retaliation. So France is a superpower.
    But France can be strangled economically. Therefore, the Super Powers can be counted on the fingers of one hand. As for America, I agree, the doctrine itself is imposing the USA against everyone.
