Why the civil war in Ukraine will lead to the collapse of Pax Americana

Why the civil war in Ukraine will lead to the collapse of Pax AmericanaBack in the 90s, some futurologists predicted that revolutionary changes in the world order would occur at the moment when Russia began to collect the lands of the "Eurasian Heartland." Of course imagine then Tankssent by the nationalist Kiev government to pacify the Russian-speaking East of Ukraine was impossible. “This is not the Arab world, and not even the Balkans,” political scientists said. Yes, in a country that paradoxically broke away from the “Russian empire”, there are ethnic (or rather, historical) contradictions, but they can be completely resolved in a civilized way.


It is possible, only this is unprofitable for Western countries, which immediately after the collapse of the USSR began to prepare for a war for the Soviet inheritance, growing up a nationalist hydra in Ukraine. And now the punishers from the “Right Sector”, who proclaimed themselves the heirs of Stepan Bandera, are preparing to storm the city with the symbolic name Slavyansk. Mercenaries from the American private company Greystone participate in suppressing the insurgency in the pro-Russian regions. However, the East of Ukraine is unlikely to submit to the Kiev authorities. Indeed, after the annexation of the Crimea to Russia, people here realized that there was someone to stand up for them and, at least in the post-Soviet space, Moscow does not intend to reckon with Washington. If the East survives, as Bashar al-Assad managed to do in Syria, America will have to say goodbye to the monopoly on power and the status of the world hegemon. We will witness the collapse of Pax Americana and the formation of a multipolar world in which not one, but several subjects have the political will.

To the "concert of the great powers"?

Neither 11 of September, nor the invasion of Americans into Iraq, nor the revolutionary ferment of the “Arab spring” became the watershed that would mark the transition to a fundamentally new world order. The attacks in New York and Washington, on the one hand, demonstrated the vulnerability of the United States, but on the other, they gave an excuse for expanding and strengthening Pax Americana. The Iraqi epic questioned the effectiveness of the international institutions on which the Yalta-Potsdam system was founded, and seemed to create the preconditions for the formation of the new “imperial” principles of the world order.

The "Arab Spring," essentially meant the failure of Washington's popular concept of "controlled chaos." Chaos in the Middle East failed to “control”. And Americans increasingly began to appeal to the experience of the 19th century, when Britain, unable to cope with the role of the world gendarme, began to shift part of the responsibility for governing the world to large regional powers. Barack Obama prayed that other players share with America the overwhelming burden "laid upon her by history." And Putin’s Eurasian integration project was largely a response to these pleas. After all, in theory, the collection of lands around Russia fits well with the concept of the formation of regional blocs that ensure the stability of the world order. The concept, which became a kind of reincarnation of the idea of ​​a "concert of great powers", popular in the 19th century. Moreover, Putin approached the implementation of the Eurasian project with his inherent pragmatism; It was impossible to reproach Moscow with revanchist sentiments, no matter what Western Russophobic political scientists say.

And at the beginning of 2014, a coup occurs in Kiev. The coup, behind which, obviously, are the Americans. And which is forcing Moscow, which did not want to before this revolutionary changes in the world order, go all-in, giving strong support to the south-eastern provinces of Ukraine and, in fact, leaving no room for compromise with Europe and the United States.

Kiev Maidan, it seems, will become that point of bifurcation, having passed that, history will finally overcome stereotypical schemes of the Cold War period and the era of unilateral US domination that followed.

US geopolitical plans: Russia without Ukraine

So far, however, the Ukrainian crisis has become a celebration of dogmatic supporters of Pax Americana, who criticized Obama for a pragmatic revolution in foreign policy. They still perceive the world as an arena for geopolitical games and are seeking to revive strategic plans developed in Washington after the end of the Cold War. “If the United States managed to establish itself in Ukraine, Russia would remain defenseless,” wrote George Friedman, the creator of the private intelligence and analysis company Stratfor (which in America is also called the “shadow CIA”), at the beginning of the 2000s. - The entire south-western Russian border from Belarus would be open. Moreover, the distance from the eastern borders of Ukraine to Kazakhstan is less than 400 miles, and this neck, along which material and human flows go to the south of the Russian Federation, would be controlled by NATO, which could potentially lead to the separation of the southern regions from Russia and its further fragmentation. ” .

One of the key tasks that American military strategists set for themselves in the post-Soviet space is to minimize the operational capabilities of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea and turn the Crimea (primarily Sevastopol) into its zone of influence. That is why the decision to join the peninsula to Russia caused such a storm in the conservative brain trusts of the United States.

It seems that the time has come again for imperial fanatics like former Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld, who said recently that the Obama administration has lost ground wherever possible: in Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, and now in the post-Soviet space. “A trained monkey would do better,” he concluded.

Limited capabilities and empty threats

Wanting to prove that he is not worse than a “trained monkey”, the US president clearly goes too far, trying to take Russia to fear. As a result, the rhetoric of a democratic administration goes far beyond what it can actually do. Paralyzing sanctions about which Obama constantly cruises, will not be introduced. The American mercenaries, however threatening they may look, are unlikely to force the East of Ukraine that has risen against the "revolutionary" government to retreat. “Unfortunately, the US president is repeating the same mistake that he made in Syria six months ago,” writes Eurasia group president Ian Bremmer. - Then he did not fulfill his threat, forcing the world to doubt the power of the United States. Now he risks losing the confidence of most of the leading players. Indeed, unlike Moscow, Ukraine does not play any role for Washington, and the Americans will not fight for it. This means that the key interests of Russia, the limited capabilities of America and the permanent end of empty threats must be recognized. ”

"The sanctions in fact will affect the West to the same extent as the East," said the patriarch of German politics Helmut Schmidt, who served as German chancellor from 1974 to 1982 a year, recently. And it is no coincidence that a couple of weeks ago Putin accepted the head of the German Siemens concern Joe Kazer in Novo-Ogaryovo (only last year Russian contracts brought his company several billion euros).

And while the Americans are threatening to “export shale gas in volumes that exceed consumption in Europe,” it is hard to believe. Let's just imagine how many years it will take to build gas-liquefying plants in the United States, tankers for transporting liquefied gas and ports for its shipment? In addition, if the price of Russian gas is at the level of 380 dollars per 1000 cubic meters, the price of American gas will be close to the mark of 500 dollars. You should not count on the countries of the Persian Gulf, which, according to some European analysts, will be able to recover losses from Russian gas. They have obligations under existing contracts, and it is impossible to change the geography of supplies overnight.

Understanding that by interrupting relations with Russia, they will never get out of the crisis, European countries frantically try to save face and are developing ridiculous sanctions packages that have already been dubbed in the Western media as a “pinprick”. No less pathetic are the sanctions imposed by America. And it is not surprising that Moscow, contrary to diplomatic traditions, did not respond to the attacks of the West with symmetrical sanctions.

***

Obviously, Russia does not intend to back down. One should not wait for compromises in the traditional western understanding of this word, when a regional power agrees with the conditions imposed by the so-called “international community” (a euphemism, under which the leading Western countries have long been hidden). Ukraine has always been seen as the most important bridgehead, on which the distribution of forces in Europe and the physical security of Russia depend. And because Moscow will support antimaydanovtsev in the south-eastern regions of the country, in spite of any costs.

In addition, we should not forget that over the past 20 years, Russia has subsidized Ukraine by approximately 200 – 300 billion dollars, supplying it with natural gas at preferential prices. And at the end of last year, when the Ukrainian economy was on the verge of collapse, only help from the Russian Federation saved the situation. And even the IMF managing director Christine Lagarde is ready to admit. Neither America nor Europe is going to care so much about the Ukrainian "allies." Their fate worries the West only in connection with the confrontation with Russia, pleasantly tickling nerves to local politicians who are starving for the dramatic collisions of the Cold War.

It should be noted at the same time that the Russian ruling elite does not seek a global conflict with America. She only hopes to formulate her own Monroe doctrine, to outline the lands that she considers vital for herself. But Russia is in no hurry to curtail cooperation with the United States. The approach here is extremely pragmatic: if the interests of the two countries coincide (for example, when it comes to mastering the Arctic shelf or reducing nuclear weapons), Moscow is ready to cooperate with Washington, but if contradictions arise, it acts on its own discretion: tough and uncompromising.

              I am against nationalism.
              In any nation there is a skin, a traitor, an opportunist.
              Such videos will not lead to anything other than a split in society.
              Citizens must be educated and raised a culture - this is the strength of any state.
              But the main thing is not to rewrite HISTORY and history textbooks. Whatever it tastes: bitter or sour. Ukraine is now reaping the benefits of a rewritten history.

          And here is another nail in the cover ....

          Nicaraguan President Daniel ORTEGA has agreed with the leadership of Russia and China on the construction in his country of a canal connecting the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The water artery will compete with the US-controlled Panama Canal and strip Washington of its strategic and economic monopoly in Central America.
          Construction will begin in the fall, and the first ship will pass through the canal in 2019. The preliminary cost of the project is $ 45 billion. Depth will be 27,6 m, width - 83 m, length - 286 km. Vessels with a displacement of up to 270 thousand tons will be able to go along the canal in Nicaragua, while the Panama Canal, even after expansion, will be able to pass ships in half the tonnage. The project also includes the construction of a railway, two airports and an oil pipeline.
          The main financial burden is undertaken by China. Russia will provide military cover for the project. To stop US attempts to disrupt plans to create a channel, Russia concluded an agreement with Nicaragua.
          Ortega allowed Russian warships and aircraft to visit the country during the first half of 2014 and patrol the territorial waters of Nicaragua in the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean until 30 on June 2015. The issue of deploying our military base in Nicaragua is also being considered.

            PS Nicaragua was among the 11 countries that supported the position of the Russian Federation when voting at the UN on the referendum in Crimea.

            A small excursion into history (just the young people don't know, and the older generation will confirm my words) In the 70s, the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua and the subsequent US aggression from Costa Rica and Honduras led to the rapprochement of Nicaragua with Cuba and the USSR. In the 80s, when Gorbachev started playing democracy, the leader of the Sandinista Front, Daniel Ortega, went to the "democratic elections." As a result, a certain Violeta (I do not remember her name) came to power. She spent 2 presidential terms, during which the Nicaraguans saw the following: the achievements of socialism disappeared, but the achievements of capitalism are not visible. And again, through democratic elections, Ortega returned, and for a long time. So Nicaragua can be considered a reliable ally (at the level of Cuba), especially since it is not known how things will go further in Venezuela without Chavez (so far, not really)
            PS: It seems Violeta bears the last name-Barrios di Chamorro.

Earlier, Israel suspended negotiations with the Palestinians on the extension of the peace process after the PNA reached reconciliation with the Islamic movement Hamas.
            "Secretary of State (John) Kerry spoke with (PNA President Mahmoud) Abbas ... The Secretary of State made it clear that he was disappointed with the announcement of reconciliation," Psaki said.

    These nonhumans chose the Bandera-Fascist path as an imitation, so what kind of civilization can be discussed here.

In such a situation, when, having played, you can easily arrange a nuclear war, I would like to see from their side someone at least resembling a man.

The SGA with its strategy of world domination fizzles out - it is very difficult to be the only leader in the world and constantly drag the others behind you, being a lagging "yellow jersey" - even among cyclists, a recognized leader at certain stages yields the palm to an opponent in order to recover and concentrate on winning control, significant plots. What can we say about the economy. They (amers) have a lot of unresolved problems inside the country and the constant desire to dominate outside will sooner or later lead to the fact that the system will experience an overload and collapse.

    After our Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Vitaly Churkin sent to the Security Council with his resolution on the Crimea, he was almost bitten by American Samantha Power - US Permanent Representative to the UN. In a fit of rage and with hysterical screams, she attacked a Russian diplomat. Churkin showed restraint and slightly held a lonely and ugly woman by the elbow ...
    In particular, it sounded that Russia "has no right to forget that it is not a winner, but a defeated one" and "Moscow's behavior is outrageous, because Moscow, blackmailing the United States with nuclear weapons, humiliates America", in response to which Vitaly Ivanovich, having taken a dangerous lady by the elbow, gently pushed her aside, asking "not to spit."
    After that, gentlemen, the permanent representatives, who had rushed to look at the scandal, neighed like horses, and Mrs. Power was dragged by referents, despite the fact that she actively resisted.

    There was a phrase about the Yalta-Potsdam agreements. But we already forget about them, and they have been the guarantor of peace and relative stability for almost 50 years. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the West considered that these agreements (and this is the so-called "multipolar world", or, to put it simply, the division of spheres of influence, naturally corrected in the course of events in the world) had sunk into oblivion, nothing would prevent them from dictating their terms. But, as the events of the last 20 years have shown, where they climbed to establish their own order, nothing worthwhile came out (with the possible exception of Eastern Europe). I wish they could limit themselves to this, but no, their appetites are growing. And here it was necessary to recall the Yalta and Potsdam agreements, where is whose glade. Russia has not gone anywhere, being the successor of the USSR, she is alive and well, she just reminded her of her interests.

    And what will happen to Europe after the separation of Ukraine from Russia? She will not fall apart from such a load? Maybe this is the main goal?

    Article (+), but there is one inconsistency: since when do we have common interests in the Arctic? and about nuclear disarmament — they need it more than we do.

    If Russia concedes now, it will always concede, therefore, it is necessary to show rigidity, but at the same time flexibility, however paradoxical it may sound.

    I will clarify - POLITALITY repeat

    Belarusian, Ukrainian, Russian peoples - this is one people. Now there is a restoration of Russia. And not because Putin so wanted, but by the will of God. For man is not within the power. Therefore, all the attempts of the West and their henchmen are in vain. The glorious peoples should unite. Russia will still shine!

    <<< The approach (of Russia to the United States) is extremely pragmatic here: if the interests of the two countries coincide, Moscow is ready to cooperate with Washington, but if contradictions arise, it acts at its own discretion: tough and uncompromising. >>>
    Russia has simply adopted the age-old tactics of the State Department itself! Maximum provision of your interests! Nothing personal - sheer pragmatism! If interests coincide and an agreement can be reached - peace, friendship, reboot! If it doesn't work out for good, but you need to achieve a result and have nowhere to retreat ("Moscow is behind") - you and your "world community" go to ... where to go and don't care about your sanctions!

    Just in the program "Special Correspondent" on channel Russia 1, it was actually announced that the missing 20 people of American intelligence instructors in the South-East of Ukraine were neatly packed and are in a known place for our polite people ...
    Hence the nerve-paralytic trip of the director of the CIA to Kiev, and now the second person in the American administration, Biden made another urgent visit to the sinking Bandera junta .... As the saying goes, "God is targeting rogue!"

    The fact that the sky is blue and the sun is shining was also there and how much you don’t say from conversations it will not change. The fact that practically whole large capital in the world, including in Russia now it’s pro-Jewish, it’s just an irrefutable fact. The fact that money is a powerful and universal tool to influence almost everything is also a fact. It’s not necessary to beat them, but the instrument should be returned to the owner, i.e. people represented by the Russian state.

    And I am still strained by Russia's sluggish actions in relation to the southeast (or rather inaction) ... And it also saddens that a huge amount of industry (including the defense industry complex !!!!) will again be privatized (((This is but - only it seems that they have finally almost recovered from the theft of the 90s and - again ?! (((And why does Putin give such permission, at least in the field of the defense industry? The 5th column will take everything over there, or direct spies of the West? ( ((Everything is inconsistent somehow (((And the GDP the person himself is not poor, the apartments, cornfields and victories indicated in the declaration, this is so, "clean neighing."

      In this situation, in the Southeast, Russia does not act sluggishly, but behaves with restraint, pauses, makes it possible for the OSCE inspectors to run, even if they are convinced that our polite people are not there, but I am convinced how our people worked in Crimea with lightning speed, decisively, professionally and politely, so if necessary it will be the same in the Southeast, so the United States is nervous, not knowing what to expect from us ....

    What does the Jews have to do with it? Are the states made up of Jews? Obama is also a Jew? It is said that the Americans themselves discovered America — obamych — there is an uneducated monkey. No need to sow a split in the Fatherland, it must be understood that this is all the work of the states, the UK and Germany, and others like them!
    And at the beginning of 2014, a coup occurs in Kiev. The coup, behind which, obviously, are the Americans. And which is forcing Moscow, which did not want to before this revolutionary changes in the world order, go all-in, giving strong support to the south-eastern provinces of Ukraine and, in fact, leaving no room for compromise with Europe and the United States.
    This is the correct understanding. In general, the article is correct. Who does not understand, read again:
    “If the United States managed to gain a foothold in Ukraine, Russia would have remained defenseless,” George Friedman, creator of Stratfor, a private intelligence and analytical company (which in America is also called the “shadow CIA”) wrote in the early 400s. - The entire southwestern Russian border from Belarus would be open. Moreover, the distance from the eastern borders of Ukraine to Kazakhstan is less than XNUMX miles, and this neck, through which material and human flows to the south of the Russian Federation go, would be controlled by NATO, which could potentially lead to the separation of the southern regions from Russia and its further fragmentation ” .
    The first reason is the obstinacy and permissiveness of the States, the second reason is the obstinacy of Germany and the EU, the third reason is Great Britain with a claim to the new empire and others like them.

    Yes, about others like them - they forgot Shlyakhistan. And they (hats) in the West of Ukraine (for example - Zhytomyr, Lviv, Khmelnitsky regions) also have a certain percentage, not including assimilation. Perhaps they can’t forget Russia in any way finding Warsaw within the Russian Empire - who knows. But the fact that the West of Ukraine does not welcome Russia and seeks Russophobia - these are the reasons.
