To the theses on "isolation"

76
China has isolated itself, says Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. The countries of the APR are ready to seek support not from Beijing, but from Washington. From the statement of the Minister it follows that the Pentagon has almost isolated the PRC. Earlier, President Obama spoke more than once about the “international isolation” of Russia. Meanwhile, Russia and China continue to converge, and some analysts point out with laughter that Mr. Obama is about to be in isolation. Probably with his Carter. However, not all so simple…




Daniel Greenfield ("Frontpage Mag") in a note entitled “Obama Inc: Russia and China are" Isolated ", he scorned the behavior of some people in the American establishment.

Mr. Obama, in his “real politics”, has everything to turn around, according to a columnist. In fact, Mr. President does not solve the problem at all. Instead, he “just comes up with” how to explain why someone wins even when he loses and the other side loses, even when she wins.

Here is one example. China. “Fully isolated!” The United States is not looking for a conflict with China, but the steps that the Celestial Empire is taking in the South China Sea lead to Beijing’s self-isolation. The behavior of the PRC encourages other countries in the region to seek help from Washington. All this was told by US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.

Uh-uh, how is that? What is such isolation? Today, China has a global infrastructure network, which already includes part of Africa and the Middle East. And China is one of the three leading world powers, the journalist specifies.

Obama Incorporated also undertakes to assert that Russia is “isolated.”

What is this happening? If two of the three leading world powers are isolated, what then does the very concept of “isolated” mean?

Apparently, nothing, the author notes. Russia "divided Ukraine" and is going to win in Syria. China, meanwhile, is expanding its territory, but Mr. Obama could not stop it. Moreover, the Obama team recently had to apologize for the plane that flew over one of the new islands of China.

But, of course, all the same, China is isolated. “Everyone except Obama is isolated,” the journalist scoffs at the president. “Or maybe the situation is the opposite?”

However, Obama is not too far from reality, as it seems to Daniel Greenfield.

Americans are climbing today to Central Asia, and their goal is to prevent either the Chinese or the Russians from strengthening there.

The delegation of Uzbekistan led by Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov recently held the sixth round of the Uzbek-American consultations in Washington, and the next day met with US Under-Secretary of State Heather Higginbottom. United States notes "Free press", are interested in the region’s natural resources and the removal of Russia from mining and supplies. In addition, the routes of the Chinese “New Silk Road” must pass through Central Asia. Finally, Central Asia is the link between Russia and China.

“The United States has a desire to reduce the influence of Russia, China and Iran on Central Asia,” Dmitry Aleksandrov, deputy head of the Central Asian Studies Department at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, told Free Press. - In economic terms, this is difficult to do, we are talking about a military-political strategy. The question is, what goals of the States can be real. In my opinion, today the United States has a mixed interest in Central Asia. There is a plan to soften the situation in Afghanistan with the help of Uzbekistan ... ”

However, the expert believes that the plans of the United States rest on financial resources. Washington will “promise a lot of things” to the Central Asian republics, but the Americans will not spend real money.

“Most likely,” noted Aleksandrov, “will provide Uzbekistan with some kind of military equipment. In general, I am skeptical about the idea of ​​a full-fledged return of the United States to Uzbekistan. ”

One way or another, Washington is clearly not abandoning its interests in Central Asia, and these interests are by no means rejected by the local elites.

How does the Kremlin respond to the White House? And are China and Russia really getting closer as partners?

It seems to be coming together. Unfortunately, this “rapprochement” occurs on the old basis.

According to the data that leads RBC, in December, 2015 was Russia for the fourth time over the past year overtook Saudi Arabia in oil exports to China.

There is an objective reason for this: there is a consistently high demand for crude Russian oil from independent processors. Independent processors prefer supplies from the Far East to Middle Eastern varieties with high sulfur content, RBC notes.

The Saudis suffered here: their oil import in December 2015 decreased by 1,2% compared with last year.

Last year, according to RBC, the Russian Federation ranked II after Saudi Arabia among oil importers to China, increasing supplies by 28%, or almost 186 thousand barrels per day compared to 2014 year. Reuters assumes that in 2016, Russia will further narrow the gap with Saudi Arabia’s supplies.

Oil is oil, but China is no longer the same partner that it seemed before the crisis that struck the Heavenly stock markets in 2015.

Head of the HSE School of Oriental Studies Alexey Maslov said "Moskovsky Komsomol"that problems in the Chinese economy threaten both Russia and the whole world.

Here is a factor that “threatens the world and Russia”: in China, the volume of production is reduced, hence the need for energy carriers is reduced. Accordingly, the Chinese will buy less energy from Russia. “It’s not by chance that this year Russia agreed to supply less oil resources to China, because it doesn’t need so much,” the expert reminded. “Apparently, the conclusion of a deal on gas prices is delayed, because, again, China does not need so much.”

And another negative factor: China is actively investing in overseas major projects. He promised a lot of investment in Russia. However, due to the well-known state of both the Chinese and the Russian economy, investments will noticeably fall. “This is already the first sign of a creep away,” the expert says, referring to the PRC’s crawling away from the Russian Federation.

As a result, there is no “turn” of Russia to the East: “If we consider that there are some economic criteria for a Russian turn to the East, yes, I think that we don’t see a turn to the East in economic terms. If we regard this as a political slogan, yes, there is an option to strengthen the development of ties with the East, but, in my opinion, the main mistake of Russia is an amateur, unprofessional attitude to the internal processes that are taking place in China. Because of this, it is impossible to correctly calculate the strategy for further work. ”

In the end, we will add from ourselves, Russia, from which China takes only what is profitable for it, in the strategic sense it becomes no closer to China, but farther from it. At the same time, Russia moved away from the West, which believes that it was able to “isolate” it. Obama and the White House’s policy in general can be criticized, but one should not forget that the Kremlin’s resource orientation leads only to Moscow’s total dependence on both the West and the East. This is not a "turn to the East", it is a turn to the abyss. The Chinese understand this very well and skillfully use it to their advantage. Therefore, they are much less “isolated” than the Russians. The Russians will get “isolation” not only from the USA, but also from China: they will “crawl away” from them.

        What does Southeast Asia and Vietnam mean to join the US economic project? This means only one thing, that the ruling "elites" of the countries of this region are stupidly bought, their money is kept in Western banks, and by and large are traitors to their people. Brzezinski once said a great phrase: Fighting with the United States is not profitable, but being friends with the United States is not doubly profitable. Everyone who started to be friends with the Americans ended up very badly. We know, we have already passed the 90s. The collapse of the economy, the plunder of the country, in the worst case, war, civil or foreign. Now the most obvious example is Ukraine. Let history be taught.

      The confrontation between the States has been since biblical times. Russia will never be a partner for any state. Political flirtations and nothing else. The best thing in my understanding: "probable, potential enemy". If you want to be friends of peace! Now about the intrigues of "ardent friends". The USA is the head jellyfish Gargon, this is so. But who surrendered Saddam Hussein, Yugoslavia, Gaddafi was declared "not handshake." Won? And not according to the principle: the Russians are a courageous people, they will endure and endure everything. Moral spirit is a great thing, but you need to put your head into this. It's time to learn.

    And it’s good that neither China is getting strategically closer, nor the West. You must develop yourself, not hoping for an uncle, and, therefore, depending on him.

China is a powerful player in the world arena, which pursues its interests no less than others. and a very strong competitor to Russia. True, in the global policy of confronting the United States, we are together, for the time being. But at the first opportunity, they are on us, as they say pushed. I think so.

To do this, you need to start investing in your economy, and not support banks. Make amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation and finally remove this liberal government ... something like that ... hi

    The Americans are sitting in the isolation ward and say that everyone else is isolated. There is a deal of truth in it. They receive parcels from different such "kindred" countries.

    Paraphrasing the well-known proverb: "What is sober on the mind, then" d_u_r_a_k_a "is in mind" - you still need to think about it - the "regional committee" does not stop making efforts to really "isolate" everyone from each other. Although outwardly it sometimes turns out funny, but there are still thinking people.
    1991 confirms this.
    The inaction of our leadership in this situation is frightening - "they run around with a gas pipe - they no longer know where to stick it."
    The Baltics (if there is a Russian-speaking population there) "In the trenches", Ukraine - "firing from the trenches", Central Asia - "behind the smoke screen." China smiles and "drags" the remnants of the necessary technologies, it does not need oil and gas ("let them lie down in reserve")

    The author should not suffer: "crawl away", "deployed" ... If the countries work in the key of mutually beneficial cooperation, taking into account national interests, then everything will be fine, they will not crawl away and not deployed. Working honestly and efficiently, without sagging under different authorities, countries will create a stronger economic environment, into which more and more people will be willing to join every year.

    It is necessary to stop admiring the rapprochement between Russia and China - China pursues exclusively its own interests. In reality, China is much more dangerous for Russia than the same USA, which has no common borders with Russia (not counting Alaska) and is located on another continent.
    Look at the reality: a powerful state in economic and military terms with a population of more than 1,5 billion people. with a friendly smile and bows, he patiently observes how his northern neighbor with huge territories and natural wealth and low population density (and the total number, in fact) is steadily degrading, experiencing economic, social and managerial difficulties.
    Today, China is already conducting a quiet expansion while continuing to smile, modern Russia has already given away part of its own territories (and how many of them were lost in the Middle Ages, when the "conquerors" of Siberia announced to the delight of China about the border on the Amur River) - see inf. about the unusual location of the loopholes in the ancient parts of the "Wall of China".
    Against the backdrop of a weakening neighbor, the state with an army of 200 million and another 500 million. ready to stand "under arms" is a mortal danger.

      First, the loopholes of the wall are directed towards the steppe, and the line of fortifications does not follow an ideal straight line from east to west, a couple of photos are constantly speculating. Secondly, the Chinese army 2,2 million, not 200 and the reserve is not possible to use to the full. Thirdly, the video has long been laid out on shelves and fakes.

        Well, you probably know better with the army. Well, let's not argue. But otherwise, what's wrong?

          The first - with the Chinese wall - it zigzags along the commanding heights along the old northern borders of China. And photos where the loopholes are directed from the lit side - just on the bends, and not at noon. Secondly, this is a YouTube video - a set of fakes. Thirdly, because of the diligent Chinese builders in China, there are so many unclaimed housing that resettlement programs are being created in them, and then there are not enough people. There will always be many foreigners at the borders, if only because someone is constantly crossing the border. In St. Petersburg, we can say that the Finns are taking over the city, and in the Black Earth region, they are Ukrainians.

    We got it with our raw materials addiction! What is 140 million for us? Is it a country to make cheese or a watch or something ?! Who has what ... and then we'll see, gradually the quantity will turn into quality. But this is not in one day and not by magic.

    But do not you think that the law of the development of quantity into quality is this magic wand? After all, how much crude oil is not produced, it will not be either cheese or for hours.

    During the existence of the USSR there were no color revolutions, and the United States did not bomb anyone without hitting. The world was bipolar.
    At present, the 2nd pole is being restored.
    The USA cannot and now already bomb the allies of Russia.
    Remained isolation tactics. But it will not bring them the desired results, especially against China. It is China that can isolate the United States in a compartment with Russia. If they act together.

    In the last 10 years, it has become obvious to many, many: the "US state" is a virtual model written on paper of legal documents; and the "Association of Financial Clans" is a real "superstate" that controls both the territory of the United States, the British Commonwealth, and occupied Europe (according to the latter, together with the first two "instruments" in the form of the United States and Great Britain, at once on 2 different leveled in parallel). So it turns out that world geopolitics is determined by serious uncles who do not figure in the systems of the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the United States. And Mr. Obama is struggling to portray the "leadership" of an exceptional power. And this is becoming more and more difficult, since those uncles brought the real powers of the US president to the level of a cardboard fool. here Genghis Khan would not have coped, let alone Obama.

    Putin recommended Trutnev to “not show his biceps” to the NATO Secretary General.
    Commentary: Probably Trutnev still thinks: "What should I have shown so that they understand that we will not give up Crimea?"

    "Avatar" is a gorgeous film in terms of both visual performance and semantic load. And strongly anti-American, but not everyone understands it. So is The Hunger Games.

    in "The Hunger Games", directly and concretely, no longer hesitated, they show the "new world order" as it is represented in the ideas of the "golden billion".

    The Pentagon has almost isolated China. Recall that earlier, President Obama has repeatedly talked about the "international isolation" of Russia.

    Everything is very simple: take a rhyme and redo it.

    To develop the economy, we had to start as min. 16 years ago, and to be honest, you didn’t need to ruin it at all 25 years ago ... but something tells me that now we are on the right track. Better late than never smile

    Well, let's say not to develop the economy, and after the devastation of the 90s, build almost anew. Another question is that, taking the western version of the economy as a model of development, Russia is at great risk of picking up there and all sorts of economic sores. For the development model, you need to take the Stalin plan of the economy (pre-adjust it with the realities of our time), which involves real production and the real financial sector, and not all bloated stock markets, securities, left ratings, all kinds of indices, and the rest of the bloated rubbish.

    Well, let's say it will become a clock if you try. though now some already make cheese out of oil. You read the composition of the product on the packaging, and you think that the product was first mined in a quarry or mine, and then processed at a chemical plant. I thought that only fuel is made from oil. Okay, jokes as a joke, but oil in our time is not only fuel, but also the foundation of any chemical industry.

    And who drew attention to the last paragraph? ...

    Well, yes, he scratched his head. Something the author has tricked with the "crawling" of China.
    The Xinhua news agency issued a detailed and very tough statement about the "stuffing" about the relations between the Celestial Empire and Russia.
    Recently, there have been more and more opinions that China does not see any prospects for an improvement in the economic situation in Russia; Russia is totally dependent on the PRC; Sino-Russian trade and economic ties are "going downhill"; interstate relations between the two countries have no future, and so on, "the" mouthpiece of the Chinese government "is indignant.
    Russia and China have many plans that, in addition to energy, in addition to purely hydrocarbon joint projects, relate to high technologies - in nuclear energy, space and aircraft manufacturing

    Isolating China is nonsense - they have always been isolated from the outside world themselves and have been self-sufficient for more than 50 centuries - the United States with its 200 year history cannot understand this

    Until we let go of the chains of capitalism on our own, in the form of the management of liberal economists trained at the Gaidar Higher School of Economics, under the direction of the Fed, the CIA and other liberal mattresses, there can be no talk of any political and economic development in Russia. Capitalism is a dead end branch of human development, which is proved by the historical fact of the existence of a socio-economic formation. While there is private ownership of the means of production, there is no need to talk about any development of the economy, namely, industrial and industrial relations within the framework of established state and interstate laws, as evidenced by the world mess organized by mattresses and others like them. Long live the Lenin-Stalin case! Death to world mattress capital!
