Threatening Obama and his army
Speech to the graduates of the military academy held on May 28. B. H. Obama actually confirmed the US claims to world hegemony.
But first, he let the audience understand that the United States is “indispensable” on the planet. “When a typhoon hits the Philippines, girls are abducted in Nigeria, and in Ukraine masked people occupy a building, the world looks at America and waits for its help. The USA is an irreplaceable country. It was so in the past century and will probably be true in the next century, ”Mr. Obama quotes. "RT".
Next, the American president developed the theme of “masked men”. It should be noted that the speech was drawn up skillfully - it may well be that Cody Keenan, who writes Obama's speech, did not sleep the night, polished the text, thought over commas and periods.
From "masked men" Obama went to Russia - but he did it delicately, without naming the country. To whom you do not call, it is quite convenient to threaten. This time. And two: graduates of the military academy, who guessed who the president is talking about, may consider themselves experts in foreign policy.
“Regional aggression that goes unpunished — in the south of Ukraine, in the South China Sea, or anywhere else in the world — will ultimately affect our allies and could draw our army in,” Mr. Obama said to the future professional military.
Then he explained to the graduates that they should “respond” to the challenges of the new world: “The task of your generation will be to respond to this new world. The question now is not whether America will be the leader, but how it will lead. ”
As Obama “leads” in the world, everyone already knows, and therefore this question is really important.
But this did not have time for Westpoints to understand, because Obama immediately turned to the Ukrainian topic. According to Obama, without the US, the Ukrainian people could not ... choose their future.
“We and our allies, defending international law, gave Ukrainians the chance to choose their future,” said the president, referring to the elections held on Sunday.
Finally, he moved to the main point.
According to him, Russia has fallen into international isolation. And it is his merit, B. h. Obama.
Such is the speech.
However, everything is not so bad for Russia, as it may seem.
Alexei Arbatov, Director of the Center for International Security, IMEMO RAN, member of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, caught one key point in the speech by B. Kh. Obama.
Speaking at West Point, the President of the United States said that while implementing foreign policy, Washington should not rely on the army, because military force is not the only evidence of American world leadership.
Comrade Arbatov drew attention to the desire of the American president to use diplomacy, economic, informational levers and military-technical cooperation. "This means that after two unsuccessful wars that the United States has carried out over the past thirteen years, it was concluded that one should not grab military force in each case, but only in the most extreme situation, go to the use of the army," - quotes an expert RIA News".
The analyst also recalled that Washington cuts defense expenditures, to which the United States is being forced by "the economic situation, the huge state budget deficit, and a huge public debt."
Thus, Obama's West Point speech, which some media in the West rushed to declare as “programmatic,” actually turned out to be another air shake.
In addition, we will add that Obama made it clear during his speech that there would be no military operation in Syria - that is, troops under the star-striped flag of Damascus will not be stormed. If the president in plain text says such things to the future military, he probably does not lie.
We should draw the following conclusion from his words: since Obama disown Syria, he set his sights on keeping Ukraine. You will chase after two rabbits - you won't catch a single one. Obama and does not pursue two.
Washington wants to build for the Ukrainian people "its future." A kind of overseas Rurik, why are there to be surprised. And if the Kremlin will object to creative ideas, Obama will respond to this “regional aggressor” with what is called in his language “draw our army”.
