“Russia is self-isolating,” the US administration says in response to our boycott of the Obama nuclear disarmament summit. I remember a year ago, the same people claimed.
"Today, it is America that is strong and united with our allies, while Russia is isolated, and its economy is torn to shreds," said US President B. Obama.
How is it - is it self-isolated if it is already isolated? In fact, even our American counterparts recognize that Obama, due to some nuances and the special flexibility of his thinking process, is a difficult negotiator for Putin.
“I’d put the argument from Putin’s side that, seeing what happened in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, he understood that everything in Syria was falling apart, and it should have looked highly unacceptable. Because of controversial statements by Obama, who drew "red lines", and then did not take any action, and then created obstacles to the implementation of any strategy, - says the author of the military doctrine "Shock and Awe" in Iraq, board member of the Atlantic Council Harlan Ullman. - If Putin reads Jeffrey Goldberg's article " Atlantic "in which th collected many quotes Obama about it for a long time, Putin's poor attitude to Obama some effort because it implies that the Kremlin -. empty space that you want to be filled with something. "
“Putin read Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in Atlantic magazine about my foreign policy doctrine and said:“ Well, I don’t agree with some of your statements there. ”“ Well, ”I said to him,“ after all, some of the wording in the article is not fully reflected all the nuances of my thoughts ". But I noticed to him that" unlike you, Vladimir, I do not have the opportunity to edit articles before they are published, "B. Obama said.
Well, of course, the White House does not go down to editing articles. What for? If he just makes them.
Recently, the Kremlin warned of an imminent informational attack on President Putin and his loved ones. Information stuffing is made by a certain "International consortium of investigative journalism" - a structure sponsored by the State Department through various funds, supervised by the US state structure BBG.
From the opera "The Barber of Seville":
The buzz grows stronger,
And like a bomb, bursting,
Slander is overwhelming
And shakes the globe ...
Going to the person with the use of "black PR" is clearly not indicative of the success of American diplomacy. And a bit like the current American presidential campaign. And why would such a panic? As far as we know, Vladimir Putin is not running for president of the United States.
"The United States does not search for its enemies. Russia is not an enemy. It is currently the enemy. And it may become a friend. Russia does not return during Stalin’s time. Putin is not the monster that is made of him. He is a Russian patriot. I think that our future will look healthier if we understand that Russia's concerns are legitimate, and that US concerns are also legitimate, "said George Friedman, the founder and former owner of Stratfor.
It would be worthwhile to listen to the veteran of the Cold War. Then we, at least, respected each other. And this is, indeed, the guarantee of future health.
