However, hello! Americans lifted a ban on sale weapons Vietnam This is a solemn, for Obama's visit to Hanoi, the end of the fifty-year sanction war against his former military opponent.
“To fear that the Vietnamese will now rush to buy American weapons after the lifting of the embargo is not worth it. At the moment, the United States has remained the only country that continues the tradition since the Cold War, for which arms trade is not foreign trade, but the continuation of foreign policy. Therefore, any country pursuing an independent foreign policy, of course, tries not to buy American weapons or dilute them very much, ”says the director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Ruslan Pukhov.
It is clear that this Obama gesture is somehow connected with China, with which Vietnam has, to put it mildly, uneasy relations. And the lifting of sanctions is an obvious calculation to get into Vietnam between Russia and China. That is why they took it off - obviously. The question is why they introduced? We don’t say why we fought. Who interfered with communist Vietnam?
Since the beginning of the year, the Americans have launched the process of lifting the sanctions on Cuba and Iran. “The most obvious demonstration of the failure of sanctions is the American policy towards Cuba. After the 50 years of sanctions, the Castro brothers are still in power, ”Bloomberg states. Anti-Iranian sanctions, by contrast, are presented as a rare example of the success of a sanctions policy. In fact, Iran abandoned its nuclear program, the existence of which it had never recognized, and, as some Iranian ill-wishers believe, in fact did not refuse.
The greatest success of the Americans can be considered the rejection of sanctions against India, as a result of which the Americans and their allies managed to press down Russia, not least in the arms market.
That is, there would be no sanctions - there would be no success caused by their abolition. For example, the lifting of sanctions against Russia could also have an extremely positive effect on the United States and its allies. But for the sake of completeness, of course, it would be necessary to wait another 20-30 years.
At the same time, the current Obama administration is pathologically committed to a policy of sanctions, primarily financial ones. It is believed that this is the only alternative to military intervention, since the idea of not intervening in other people's affairs at all is not considered in principle.
Financial transactions can move to bypass the United States if the sanctions make the business environment too confusing and unpredictable, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lewis warned.
“We need to be aware that the abuse of sanctions can undermine our leading position in the global economy and the effectiveness of the sanctions themselves.”
It remains only to sympathize with our American partners. You can not fight - pay. If you don't want to pay, fight. Otherwise what are you hegemon?
- You then, Sawa, this is why?
- Not for joy, but for conscience man lives.
