The Cold War era finished without the „end of history“ as the US continues the same policy from the time of the Cold War against Moscow – now not against the USSR but against Russia. For Washington the Cold War era in fact has never ended as the fundamental political task to eliminate Russia from the world politics still is not accomplished.
The most important significance of what just happened is that it proves the success of the US’ “Operation Condor 2.0” hemisphere-wide unipolar comeback over the past few years in regaining control of most of the continent following its “Pink Tide” multipolar “rebellion” a decade ago.
The events in Armenia are the destabilization of this state that corresponds chiefly to the interests that the US and its allies have in provoking problems right in the center of the Russian-Turkish-Iranian Multipolar Tripartite at this sensitive geopolitical time.
Nowadays Nicaragua is the host of China’s planned Transoceanic Canal that’s meant to rival the Panamanian one but which has thus far sluggishly struggled to get off the ground, though like almost everything in contemporary International Relations, there’s also a Russian angle to it as well.
Macron might have extracted much more out of the state visit than his host could. The much talked about “bromance” between Trump and Macron all but turned out to be a case of “tough love.” Macron probably got close enough to Trump to say some mean things that he wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
While Kanye’s recent life experiences very closely parallel the rapid rise and fall of Harrison Bergeron when the sci-fi short story character briefly rebelled against the totalitarian ideology of the authoritarian system, the rapper might actually succeed where Kurt Vonnegut’s 1961 character failed.
Given that the US political system is based on “iron triangles” — the intersecting interests of corporations, government officials, and special-interest groups — it is unlikely that any truly sensible decision will be made in the US in regard to the use of armed force that would make it possible to resolve conflicts by means of diplomacy instead.
The US attacks on Germany’s economy are nothing new. But previously those had been limited to just Trump’s words and infamous tweets. Now Washington has moved from words to deeds and seems to mean business, as evidenced by the March tariffs on Chinese goods.
The hysterical hype about the supposedly imminent commencement of “World War III” and the nuclear apocalypse that people are being conditioned for manipulative reasons to expect right afterwards never came to pass, but all the same, there’s an unmistakable worldwide struggle going on for the future of International Relations.
In pursuit of maintaining the so-called “middle ground”, President Erdogan has rhetorically oscillated between the West and Russia in order to provoke the unipolar and multipolar “blocs” to compete with one another for Turkey’s loyalty.
It’s for these larger and far-reaching strategic reasons involving Africa, the Mideast, and South Asia why France is fast becoming the US’ new “special partner” in Europe and one of its most important allies anywhere in the world.
The US’ newest National Security Strategy warns about how Russia is supposedly “exploit[ing] marketing techniques to target individuals based upon their activities, interests, opinions, and values”, but that’s actually what US intelligence agencies and now even private “deep state”-linked companies are doing in order to manipulate the masses.
