Political analyst: Moscow warned about the consequences of the “Arab spring”, but they did not listen to it

37
The new “cold war” made American politicians incapable of rational thinking; they consider a priori any opinion of Moscow a priori wrong, political scientist and historian Stephen Cohen told the Batchelor's national radio show.




“In the new cold war, all proposals of Russia are unfriendly,” said Cohen. “Decisions are made on the principle“ Moscow cannot be right ”.”

“Washington, meanwhile, should heed the opinion of Moscow on the issue of Syria. From the very beginning, Russia warned that the US-supported Arab Spring would not lead to the establishment of democracy in the Middle East, but would only raise radical forces such as the Islamic State, ”
quotes a political scientist RIA News.

“From the very beginning, Putin was essentially right, but Obama isn’t, but Washington is unable to admit that his policy was based on delusions,” the expert noted.

According to him, “Washington continues to support the myth of the“ Arab Spring ”, as it fears to recognize the rightness of Moscow.” At the same time, America again makes a mistake, acting in Syria both against the IS and against Assad.

"In the face of the IS, the overthrow of Assad will be another terrible mistake - Russia is right," Cohen said.

    From the very beginning, Putin was essentially right, but Obama was not.

    This is still ongoing. Over the years, nothing has changed. But unfortunately no one wants to hear Putin.

      Oh, someone from all anger naminusovat .. (corrected))))) In the article everything is written correctly and the problems in the west are just beginning (and not only with refugees) Anger overshadowed the eyes of the west ... USA again hopes to quietly sit out overseas .. ? Well Well! Russia has always had a firm stance on these problems and we were right again .... In Syria, we are starting to act independently, and Ukraine will be bent from its anger and nearness anyway ..!

        The site is serious, different people drop by here, I’m sure that the editors of Censor and Korr are also visited, well, for one minute, I can’t fix it, as long as I don’t have the right.
        On this topic; not far from the time when Europe begins to listen to the opinion of Russia, too many problems fall on the EU from a blind faith in US policy.

      They will listen, but it will be too late. They already can’t cope with the refugees. And what will happen when the newcomers unite or come into conflict with those who arrived earlier.

      And also, in the very beginning of the 2000s, Putin, regarding American exceptionalism, uttered an Aesopian saying: "The wolf knows who to eat." And this meant that Russia should become strong. So far, everything is going to that.

    Whoever is not with us is against us, is the old principle that guides the states and their vassals. What they do cannot be called the actions of rational politicians. They create conflicts around the world, from which all but the states then begin to suffer. An example of this is uncontrolled migration to Europe from the Middle East and North Africa. Soon, the terrorists who infiltrated along with the stream of refugees will make themselves felt. The twin towers of New York seem like a children's party, compared to what could happen in Europe. And the states are again “in chocolate”. They have no refugees ...!

      Somewhere it flashed that the states, in order to help Europe, were ready to accept 700 refugees within 3 years. This is just a masterly mockery.

    The new Cold War made American politicians incapable of rational thinking, they consider any opinion of Moscow a priori erroneous

    Although later on, it shows that Moscow was right and the Americans once again made a gross (criminal) mistake. But they do not “worry” about this and continue to act without including rational thinking. The main thing is to try to achieve your goal by any methods. And in the end there is someone to blame, the benefit of public opinion is prepared and the singers from Europe are always ready to serve.

          It is naive. The author points out that the media are used to throw misinformation, but he draws conclusions on the basis of data from the same media. Well, ISIS as an ally is generally bullshit. You can talk with Islamists only in the napalm language.

          In any case, it will be necessary to deal with Ukraine, and the obvious tactical solution is a strike along the Russian border with the LPR. Density of fire from Russian territory can be provided by anyone. The only problem is maneuvering vehicles from the DPR. On roads, this is problematic. We recall that right now the railway troops are pulling the railway through Millerovo. We turn on the brain and draw a conclusion.

    Westerners generally always did not care. If only it is warm, but comfortable. The problem was solved by politicians. And politicians were sent by businessmen - from the military-industrial complex to the mafia. But soon and the average man roasted roast bite.

    The author, of course, is right in assuming that the US in its actions pursues the goal of spreading real democracy and raising the standard of living of the population. But who said this is so? Who can argue that the current state of affairs in the Middle East and Ukraine is not the true goal of the United States? It seems to me that all this has been done to spur demand for weapons and other products of the US military-industrial complex and reduce competitiveness in this market of the EU and Russia. Made, frankly, not perfect, but effective. It’s not necessary to think that full IJPTs are sitting there, there are also capable people there, only their goals do not coincide with ours.

    Russia from the very beginning warned that the US-backed "Arab Spring" would not lead to the establishment of democracy in the Middle East,

    Yes, they ... on all warnings, on "democracy"! The main goal is chaos and war, the destruction of all more or less economically powerful opponents. And now it is the EEC, Russia and China. With the help of "Russophobia", "sanctions," tolerance "and the" Arab spring "Europe was already well plunged into chaos.
    Unfortunately from and will hook us. The question is how much? Here, the less we are economically dependent on the West, the less we will suffer.

    Yes, Russia is not right, the goal of the black hut and its owners:
    1. creation of centers of tension closer to the Russian Federation
    2. The elimination of any regime that does not agree with the opinion of the United States.
    therefore, they do not care deeply, sitting behind a puddle, for everything that is being done in the world. sorry that the leaders in Europe do not understand this

    The new “cold war” made American politicians incapable of rational thinking; they consider a priori any opinion of Moscow a priori wrong, political scientist and historian Stephen Cohen told the Batchelor's national radio show.

    Oh, these current political scientists, where do they just make them? Yes, Washington is essentially the antipode of Russia, so that the latter would not do it, the Americans will do the opposite, and they are far from being fools, since they will be on horseback in fomenting the war in Eurasia, and they don’t care about all the problems that arise in Europe, on the contrary, Washington will only aggravate them. The whole essence of the existence of the United States is the world chaos that they have swirling, with an ever increasing set of revolutions of which they will take off all the cream for themselves. The USA is the guarantor of the inevitable apocalypse.
