Military Review

Why is Russia an enemy for the USA?

73
This question, both simple and complex at the same time, was asked by Clive Mound, an exchange and investment expert, market analyst and trader who had previously lived in London and then moved to the USA. Him broker among other things, it is devoted to a number of issues of the precious metals and energy market. It also touches upon the problems of geopolitics. In a recent article, the analyst indicates that the United States is trying to destroy Russia in order to preserve the hegemony of the dollar on the planet.



Has the United States achieved success in destroying Russia, thus trying to preserve dollar hegemony? This question was asked by Clive Mound in an article of the same name.

According to the trader, there are two reasons why the United States "made" Russia its enemy.

First, the US military industrial complex, which has a powerful lobby, is interested in such conflicts to promote its deadly products. Lobbyists wish that the "military order book" of US military corporations be complete. Corporations need an external enemy in order for the government to give the go-ahead to the next launch of the arms race.

Secondly, the very real threat to throw a dollar out of the list of world reserve currencies actually means “the end of the American empire”. The “battle” is for maintaining the global hegemony of the dollar, and at the same time maintaining the economic, military, and political dominance of the United States on the planet. The analyst believes that now is the end of this struggle.

The United States is parasitic on the outside world, says Mound. Washington stamps debt instruments and takes money out of thin air. Only by having a world reserve currency at its disposal can a state afford “astronomical deficits” that would make any other country insolvent. With the loss of the status of the reserve currency “the economy of the United States will explode,” and Washington will become the capital of the “banana republic,” the author is sure.

Today, the biggest threat to dollar dominance comes from Russia and China. These states have recently concluded various currency and trade agreements that ignore the dollar. Consequently, there is a serious threat to the status of the dollar as a key currency.

Washington is particularly worried about Russia, which has made a number of significant steps to trade outside the dollar.

What can the White House oppose to the Kremlin?

To attack Russia and bomb it? Impossible: Russia is not Libya, and it has a nuclear weapon. So this is not an option, writes the analyst. Maybe try to "undermine the Russian government from the inside and ignite the revolution"? But this will not work either: Russian special services are good at “eradicating saboteurs”.

The third option to combat Russia is an economic blockade. Hence, the sanctions aimed at isolating the country and weakening the economy of Russia. True, there were no suitable excuses for the sanctions. And not only excuses: it seems that the sanctions simply "will not work." Moreover, those "madmen" from Europe who dance to the tune of Washington will suffer from them.

The author believes that “the Russian economy is very large” and, if necessary, it can work on a self-sufficient basis. Moreover, Russia has oil and gas. In addition, Russia has a strong neighbor, China, who knows perfectly well what will be “in the line of fire” after Russia, and therefore “happy” to agree on mutually beneficial cooperation with the Russians.

Further, the expert writes that the current situation in relations between the USA and Russia (and in the future between the USA and China) is potentially very dangerous. Are the US elites and the leaders of NATO "insane enough to start a world war"? ..

What is happening in the east of Ukraine, the American propaganda deliberately presents in black. Meanwhile, life in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions is very difficult. Cities and villages were ruthlessly fired upon and today practically have no electricity, water or food. Many of these people are either Russian-speaking or of Russian origin. And it’s quite natural for Russia to come to their aid. However, the American media raised a false howl about the humanitarian Russian convoy. Western media do not want the people of the West to know the truth, said the publicist. However, the accusations of Russia from the Western media that this convoy allegedly has military objectives are absurd: try to squeeze a tank or an armored troop-carrier into a mid-size truck, ironically Mound. Washington’s protest that the Russians “violated the territorial integrity of Ukraine” by entering there by truck is hypocritical. This is nonsense. And didn’t the United States invade Iraq under the false pretext of the mythical “weapons of mass destruction”?

On the example of a humanitarian convoy, the author writes, we see an excellent example of propaganda, the purpose of which is to distort the position of Russia and set this country as the aggressor. Further, this will be a “justification” for the further tightening of sanctions.

But why is the US so worried about what is happening in Ukraine? After all, this country is on the other side of the globe! What, B.H. Obama considers himself to be something like Julius Caesar? Even so, Russia and China are not part of the American empire. These US states do not enslave: they are too large and able to protect themselves with nuclear weapons. And if they manage to overthrow the dollar, the American empire - with its inner rot, huge debts and “hopelessly corrupt government” - will collapse.

“It’s hard to exaggerate the stupidity of Europe serving the US and imposing sanctions on Russia,” the author writes. Trade war is nonsense! Russia is not a banana republic, but a great world power, the analyst points out, and the imposition of sanctions against it is a “gross insult” and a provocation that will have disastrous consequences, especially given the fact that the Russians are now allied with the Chinese.

If anyone loses something, it is first and foremost Europe: the analyst considers its economy "already very fragile." In addition, in Europe, ultra-right political parties are rising one after another, which can provoke internal European wars. Russia and China will probably only benefit from all this.

The author considers the “rabid propaganda” in the Western media “coarse and primitive” - such that even the “maestro of Nazi propaganda, Dr. Goebbels” would turn red from it.

So did the United States achieve success in destroying Russia, thus trying to preserve the dollar hegemony?

No, it is not reached, the expert answers. And this means that the dollar will probably collapse right after his swan song, which should be called “Death of Europe”.

By the way, let us add to this, experts predict a ruble appreciation by the end of 2014, despite Western sanctions against Russia.

As the RBC, by the end of this year, the dollar exchange rate may be 36,9 rubles, and the euro exchange rate - 48,2 rubles. These are the indicators of the consensus forecast compiled by RBC based on the forecasts of twelve investment banks.

Bankers note that today geopolitical risks have a large impact on the ruble exchange rate. Igor Golubev, head of Promsvyazbank's debt market analysis, said: “The current levels of the ruble exchange rate are far from fundamental estimates and carry a substantial geopolitical bonus. In general, everything depends on the geopolitical situation, which is rather difficult to predict, but we are waiting for continued pressure on the Russian currency. ”

Nevertheless, banking experts are convinced that by the end of the year the ruble will recover all the losses.

          It is necessary to bring down the dollar gradually, because all gas, oil and other contracts are tied to it. Plus, we have unrealistically invested in the economy of America. If you collapse immediately, the Russian economy is pretty tense - not to collapse, but it will be extremely unpleasant. Therefore, GDP does this carefully: first we negotiate with China the transfer of some contracts to yuan and rubles, then with Iran expresses a desire to exchange natural products, then they create a BRICS reserve fund, where they invest not national dollars, but national currencies, today they start talking about trade inside the Customs Union ( and Eurasian, by the way, too) in national currencies (up to the withdrawal of a new common currency). So, the process has already begun, gentlemen comrades)

          Russia also does not benefit from a simultaneous fall in the United States! Can you imagine how the global economy will start to sausage (and at the same time us and you) !? The instant death of the United States will entail very large losses of all developed countries, without exception, and Russia among them.
          No! GDP comes in very subtly, competently and far-sightedly. It is necessary to do so ... so that the process of decomposition and death of the United States stretches out for a fairly long time, by 3, 5, or even 10 years! Indeed, together with the fall of the Yankees, it will be necessary to simultaneously raise both its industry and its economy. And this is not a matter of one year!
          That is why we have witnessed the beginning of the death of the United States, and it certainly will not come tomorrow.

        suddenly something unusual will happen to you, amazing .... He
        will come to your house .... Tiredly sink to a chair, put on his knees
        machine and look into your eyes .... It will smell like gunpowder, blood,
        death, but he will be in your house .... And then the Russian will ask you a question:
        "What is the strength in, brother?" And at this very moment you will regret 1000 times that
        you are not a brother to russian .....
        because
        that he will forgive his brother, but never the enemy .... The French remember .... The Germans
        they know ... Russian lives justice .... Western man in the street - lying
        briefings and crafty press conferences .... While alive in his heart
        Russian justice will rise from the mud, from the darkness, from hell .... And you
        you can’t do anything about it .... Because the Russians themselves can’t do anything about it for a thousand years.

        I think the states can also arrange no less troubles for us. Do not underestimate the enemy. In addition, only the naive would underestimate the United States. it is a powerful state in almost every way.
        I know a lot of politicians of Putin's caliber for years to come. And time is on our side. Why force. Let the enemy do it, making mistakes in haste every time. Putin plays excellent counter-offensives. The main thing is patience. Yet Russia will not just have to face this confrontation. The only option for the Saxons is a rebellion in the faith of power. No one has seen the true top of the 5, 6 or 100500 columns. Hence the blow will follow. By the way, Yevtushenkov was pinned down specifically, and this is already a blow to the foundations of the Russian oligarchy, which was building its "empires" at the expense of our state. Now Putin will play it back!

    Hello Olijka ... I constantly turn to two quotes .. one belongs to Bismarck, the second to Brzezinski ... both relate to Ukraine and reveal the whole essence.

    ◾ “The power of Russia can only be undermined by the separation of Ukraine from it ... it is necessary not only to tear off, but also to oppose Ukraine to Russia. To do this, you just need to find and nurture the traitors among the elite and, with their help, change the identity of one part of the great people to such an extent that they will hate everything Russian, hate their kind, without realizing it. Everything else is a matter of time. ” Bismarck.


    ... The main geopolitical prize for America is Eurasia ..

    ... “In a world where there is no United States supremacy, there will be more violence and disorder and less democracy and economic growth than in a world where the United States continues to have more influence on global issues than any other country.

    The permanent international leadership of the United States is the most important for the welfare and security of Americans and for the future of freedom, democracy, open economies, and international order on earth. ” 5 ...

    ... On this huge, bizarre outline of a Eurasian chessboard, stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok, there are figures for the “game”. If the middle part can be included in the expanding orbit of the West (where America dominates), if the dominance of one player does not prevail in the southern region, and if the East does not unite in such a way that forces America to leave its overseas bases, then, we can say, America will win. But if the middle part fights off the West, becomes an active whole and either takes control of the South, or forms an alliance with the participation of a major eastern power, then the American leadership in Eurasia will sharply narrow. The same thing will happen if two large eastern players somehow unite. Finally, if Western partners drive America away from its perch on the western periphery, it will automatically mean the end of America’s participation in the game on the Eurasian chessboard, even if it will also mean, ultimately, submission of the western tip to a busy mid-hour player. ..

    ... He who rules Eastern Europe, owns the Heart of the earth;

    The one who rules the Heart of the earth owns the World Island (Eurasia);

    The one who rules the World Island owns the world.

    .... Brzezinski ... excerpts ... honestly ... a storehouse ...

For artificially maintaining the dollar, which is what England is doing, it will be a painful blow. Cameron has been begging Scotland not to secede for days.

      They are so crazy that they are sure that they are able to avoid our response with the help of their missile defense. This is the basis of their entire line.
      But the mattress strategists did not take into account that there is no need for us to send ICBMs through Europe. There are much shorter routes - the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean. And we also have "Poplar", which mattress covers do not have. And we can strike from almost any point. That is why there is such a hysteria around the Mistrals, which are capable of transporting the Poplar anywhere. Well, nobody has canceled the Tu-95 yet. And, of course, the nuclear submarine with the Bulava, which has finally straightened out, and soon this beauty, together with the Yars, will completely replace the outdated Voevoda. Then the mattress makers will really have no time for laughter and for bringing democracy around the world.

        Alexey, I gave you a "+", although there are military-technical strains. “Borei” with “Bulava” are going to replace “Dolphins” with “Sineva”. And "Voevoda" will be replaced by "Sarmat". This is, firstly.

        I agree with the Arctic. It used to be 80% ICBMs, now it is 70, but still a lot. But about the Pacific Ocean - a stretch. In the eastern part of the Russian Federation there are much fewer goals than beyond the Urals.

    According to the trader, there are two reasons why the United States "made" Russia its enemy.


    As long as Russia exists, it has always been an enemy of the merikkatos. And those veiled some times still did not hide their hatred of everything and all Russians.

      In the war of state independence from GB, Russia sent to the coast of America 4 frigate to help the rebels. WWII and WWII were also like allies. But GB has always been an enemy of Russia, even as an ally, it intrigued against Russia. Well, W. Churchill's Fulton speech in general is a manifesto of the Cold War!

    Everyone understands that the USA is a parasitic state, that everyone jumps to the tune of Washington, everyone understands that the USA and the EU will collapse soon, everyone also understands. When the rulers of the USA and the EU understand this, is it interesting? Or the only way out for the EU is the collapse of the union under US pressure. Then it will be possible to point out the culprit and, under the guise of European leaders, remain clean. Then this behavior makes sense.

    Well, America is unlikely to become a banana republic. It is enough to open the card first physical, and then economic, so as not to entertain yourself with illusions.

    To his question, meanwhile (why the states consider Russia an enemy), the author still does not answer.

    First, the US military-industrial complex, which has a powerful lobby, is interested
    More likely a consequence than a cause.

    Secondly, a very real threat to throw the dollar out of the list of world reserve currencies
    This is also a consequence: a "goodbye" to the dollar is just a forced retaliatory measure.

    Although the answer is obvious: for the same reason that they tried to bury another RI, then the USSR. The Anglo-Saxon world is still the most powerful financial, military, cultural, industrial and scientific center of power.

    That allows you to ride on a hump where without dominance - they would give it over the ears.

    The Russian Federation acts as an alternative center in the most critical aspects: scientific (not to be skeptical) and military, while maintaining significant financial independence. The bottom line is simple: as a result, we have de facto sovereignty (and not a piece of paper about its declaration).

    Those who have sovereignty also have real, not "declared" interests - incl. beyond their own boundaries. Those. we are one of those from whom you can get on the ears where we used to ride on other people's backs.

    The threshold of their current well-being is overestimated by just such a freebie. Which is less and less, which is fraught with a sharp drop in living standards. Therefore, the emergence and strengthening of other centers of power, limiting the ability to "suck" other countries - is extremely painful for the Anglo-Saxons. In tech. of the last period they were ousted both in their own fiefdom - South America, and in the East Asian region, ousted in Africa.

    At the same time, the memory of our shame and the collapse of the USSR is still strong: Russia is perceived as a "sick animal." Therefore, so "suddenly" it was drawn that we were being pressed with all their might (although in fact they never stopped pressing): acutely aware of our own weakness, which was growing over time - with the simultaneous strengthening of competitors.

    The funny thing is that this "unexpected" hostility is not theirs. They were always present. Only from the side of Russia they turned the other cheek (or even the backside) and at the diplomatic level they "smiled" when the country was trampled upon, had and humiliated (also "smiling" at the same time and "blessing the new democracy"): thus outwardly relations looked like " peaceful ". And now they felt teeth on the kicking leg - and were forced to squirrel in response.

    Another such center, only much more powerful in the industrial and financial aspects, is, of course, China. Which they, for objective reasons, are simply afraid: in general, all their panic and fuss (including in relation to us) has been associated with Vost. Asia: it was the Chinese who squeezed them out of many regions of Africa and from their own periphery, undermined their leadership in the key high-tech sector and encroached on the financial sector (all the Kremlin chatter about the "collapse of the dollar" without Chinese opportunities is child's play).

    But they can’t do anything directly with China.

    Perhaps they believe that disintegrating Russia as a state in the style of the 17th year, i.e. removing our nuclear threat, can China be brought to its knees? Not physically - but to dictate his will in the most painful matters, always having behind him a club of deafening superiority in nuclear weapons.

    Again, commodity markets, delivery routes - a question in which Asia would be cruelly vulnerable: if it were not for the Russian Federation: by disrupting supplies in one way or another, “strangling” it would work, “strangling” the Chinese industry to death - no.

      Interesting and informative koment! This has recently been a rarity. Therefore, I want to insert your 5 kopecks into your smart conversation.

      Strange as it may sound, but The states are dependent on a shadow world government, whose "center of power" is spread out between Bern, Venice and London. Moreover, London occupies a leading place in the triad. GB has a long tradition and experience of a war for world leadership. Her unwavering tradition (commandment) was the struggle to destroy the closest rival, claiming world leadership. So it was with Spain, France, Russia, then Germany, and finally with the Union. Now it is China's turn.
      States are the visible part of the backstage. His shock squad.
      But backstage is too hasty debited Russia. Despite the hard times of the 90's and the zero ones, Russia was able to return to the club of great powers: the second place in the strategic nuclear forces, advanced science, the 6 place in terms of GDP, and enormous resources.
      And then suddenly China - second place in economics, 3-e in strategic nuclear forces, huge human resources. China has become a leader in the Asia-Pacific region, and this is the region of the third millennium - the locomotive of world economic development. Therefore, here, under the pretext of defending democracy, the States climb.
      Realizing that one cannot stand against a superpower alone, Russia and China entered into a "marriage of convenience." In addition, VV Putin worked in the rear of the enemy and put together the SCO, BRICS, TS. Carries out a policy of refusing the dollar in mutual settlements, taking candy wrappers out of the brackets of their financial and economic interests.
      The states have no choice but to break up these unions. The solutions are colored revolutions, zones of controlled chaos. They are trying to drag Russia into armed conflicts: the Caucasus, Syria, Ukraine, then will be Central Asia.
      So behind the scenes, with its USA strike force, it will solve the problem of eliminating (collapsing) competitors to its "world leadership". And there are 2 opponents: the Russian Federation and the PRC. Therefore, the Russian Federation is an enemy.
      With your other arguments, I basically agree.
      Sincerely, KAA.

    They are kind of ready for war, and talk about it, but they are afraid, because
    They don’t know what they may face. No initiative, no confidence

    So we live in a stalemate: we and China have assets in bucks
    and Western securities, and before they are converted, ruin the economy

    By the way, let us add to this, experts predict a ruble appreciation by the end of 2014, despite Western sanctions against Russia.

    According to RBC, by the end of this year, the dollar could be 36,9 rubles, and the euro - 48,2 rubles. These are the indicators of the consensus forecast compiled by RBC based on the forecasts of twelve investment banks.

    Well, as for the forecasts, I would not be deceived, in 2008, the RTS index predicted sky-high heights. .. it's analysts

    If everything is as stated in the article. And as commentators say about thinking Putin. That is why Putin without hesitation supported America sent attack aircraft to Iraq? Today, US Secretary of State Kerry said that now they are fighting in a new way, not with their troops, but are preparing on the spot. Thus, the Americans destroyed Libya, are waging war in Syria and Ukraine. It was for the fight against Russia that ISIS was created (for those who are not aware of the fact that oil is getting cheaper). Allegedly, they will bomb Syria to fight ISIS. In all directions, the Americans are waging war against Russia. So why did Putin send attack aircraft?

      The Russian camp contains most of the world's reserves of oil, gas, fresh water, timber, rare earth metals and much more. What's the use of your "key technologies" if natural resources are on the other side. It is enough to build a strong government, clean out the 5th column to avoid the likelihood of a "Maidan" and that's all (in the military aspect, the Strategic Missile Forces will protect us), all holders of "key technologies" ala Germany and other EU-nicknames themselves will come running on all fours, change their technologies for a glass of water and an armful of firewood.

        I don’t think that the Russian Federation and the allies (who they are) possess such a large part of the resources ... I don’t think so.
        Quite a lot of resources in the Russian Federation are DIFFICULT - the extraction and transportation are UNFAVORABLE.

        Now for technology: Japan, Israel, Korea. There are no resources, but technology allows them to live better than the Russian Federation, their products are in demand, a significant part of the export is the technology itself. On the other hand, Africa is very rich in resources ... and still in the ass ...

        The Russian Federation uses a lot of American technologies (and equipment) in oil production and refining. Recently, the US and the EU imposed sanctions against large oil companies. Want to drill offshore, but don’t produce equipment? What a pity!

        No one is going to attack the Russian Federation, for this it was a very good time in the 90s, but no one even tried. Today, countries compete in economics, technology and human development. Tales for s to cover up theft

There is no need to rob anything - the elite itself takes everything out perfectly, and looking at the political system (we put in the innocent, reward the innocent, by the will of the left heel) not a single sober investor carries money in Russia.

    There is only one conclusion: bets are placed and masks are reset. Everything becomes clear: the confrontation goes to the vanguard, not hiding behind anything.
    The trouble is different: Russia as an empire won many times, but the price of victories was huge.
    By no means do I want to challenge or oblivion the great deeds of our Great Ancestors, but in our times we can no longer afford such sacrifices. Do not get me wrong: the population is critical for our territory, the power of the army and the economy is still far from perfect, although there are glimmers of hope. Most importantly, the military-industrial complex is extremely weak in comparison with the Soviet one; design schools are in decline. Frigates are built for 8 years.
    We can't get into wars. Take the same Europe: the "old woman" has participated in many wars, but the standard of living of the population has always been relatively high. Unfortunately, everything is different with us. Once in a hundred years, I had to fight almost from the national team of the planet, even though in history books everything is presented in a completely different light. I just want stability and peace.

    With a modern banking system, this is not possible, especially given the size of multiple over-credited loans. Where there was 1 dollar, they made 4-8 virtual ones. The growth of industrial gold production lagged far behind the growth of the "virtual" money supply back in the 50-60s.
