Russia Calls America's Bluff
American Hegemony In Decline?
Since the end of WWII American hegemony has enabled todays world economic blueprint to function. The worlds free trade has been backed by American reassurances that those who wish to wreak havoc on the finely tuned system would suffer consequences. With the unparalleled strength of the US military, and the adoption of the dollar as the worlds currency, almost everyone fell in line. The consequences of undermining American hegemony could either result in military action, or crippling economic sanctions. Nations that had been at each others throats for centuries had to learn to get along. This in turn allowed countries that were (and still are) heavily dependent on imports and exports, to trade freely without the looming dangers of piracy or third-party intervention. Since the end of the Soviet Union some 30 odd years ago, America has had a stranglehold on geopolitical power. Today this hegemony is in grave danger as America paints itself into a nuclear corner.
There is of course more than one driving factor for America’s disinformation and demonization campaign on Russia’s cleansing operation in Ukraine. Retaining its global authority is one of them. As we know, America went a step too far when it placed a puppet regime in Ukraine and baited it into joining NATO. Russia had the gumption to stand up for itself and called America’s bluff by invading the puppet state. Putin then had the savvy to threaten its nuclear arsenal on any country intervening with their military operation. Either back off, or prepare for nuclear annihilation. This has made America look completely weak and helpless. Countries are starting to notice.
If the threat of American intervention is no longer applicable, then nations under high tensions are going to be forced to double down militarily. It becomes every man for themselves. Essentially the big bully has left the room, and you may now proceed to kill your neighbor. We are now seeing this conclusion in France, and Germany, as they spend billions to beef up their military. Government opinion in Israel is also changing. Former health minister Yuri Edelstein had this to say “When it comes to Israel’s security, the country can only rely on itself.” Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett was quoted saying “We will protect ourselves by ourselves.”
Sanctions on Russia have made countries like Saudi Arabia, who are thought to have a good standing with America, revive talks with China on pricing oil in yuan. All this can culminate into the end of American hegemony as we’ve known it. The result is deglobalization.
How long this deglobalization will last, and who would take America’s throne is yet to be seen. The fact is, globalists who run the military industrial complex don’t want this to happen. This is why we might see a US orchestrated false flag attack blamed on Russia sometime soon. The globalists need an excuse for America to get involved in Ukraine or they will take a major step backwards in the realization of their goal.
Am I missing something here? Probably, as there are many variables and motivations on both sides of the conflict. Putin is seeming more and more anti-globalist by the week. With his bridge to the WEF now burned, it is possible that Putin has turned his back on the globalists. America is desperate. This is the pivotal point in its reign as world police.
