Putin on Hegemon USA
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
Since Biden illegitimately replaced Trump in January, US relations with Russia sank to an all-time low in modern times with no prospect for improvement.
Along with endless war on Russia and China by other means, Biden regime hardliners are pushing the envelope for possible direct confrontation.
Throughout most of the post-WW II period, a permanent US state of war existed to the present day against invented enemies.
No real ones existed since Soviet Russia smashed Nazi Germany's Wehrmacht and imperial Japan was defeated by US forces months before its formal September 2, 1945 surrender aboard the USS Missouri.
Belligerent USA advanced its imperium throughout the post-WW II period by establishing a global empire bases, occupying most world community countries, intimidating others, and inventing enemies to wage endless wars by hot and/or other means.
Both wings of the US war party are belligerent, undemocratic Dems most of all.
Will Biden regime hardliners exceed the worst of their predecessors?
Is global war 3.0 possible on their watch?
Russia's Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu accused the US-dominated West of "actions (that) are destroying the world's security system and force us to take adequate countermeasures."
Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said "(t)he Americans must assume that a number of signals from Moscow…will be uncomfortable for them, including in the coming days."
Preeminent world leader Vladimir Putin is US public enemy No. 1.
Days earlier, he accused the Biden regime of "want(ing) to hold back our development. They talk about it publicly," he said.
Biden regime hardliners reject improved relations with Russia in favor of what they call predictable.
The US has been especially hostile toward Putin since his 2007 Munich Security Conference address.
He minced no words saying "(w)hen peace has been broken anywhere, the peace of all countries everywhere is in danger," adding:
Unipolarity and other imperial notions of world supremacy reflect "Cold War bloc thinking."
A world with "one master, one sovereign is unacceptable…pernicious, not only for all those within this system, but also for the sovereign itself because it destroys itself from within."
"(T)his certainly has nothing in common with democracy."
"(W)e are constantly being taught about democracy (by the West)."
"(T)hose who teach us do not want to learn themselves."
"(T)he unipolar model is not only unacceptable but also impossible in today's world."
'(T)he model itself is flawed because…(u)nilateral and frequently illegitimate actions have not resolved any problems."
They create major ones, plunging the world "into an abyss of permanent conflicts," along with "greater and greater disdain for the basic principles of international law."
"One state…first and foremost the United States" imposes its will on other nations politically, economically and militarily.
Abuses by a dominant nation forces others to react defensively, producing an arms race menacing everyone.
Putin denounced what he called illegitimate military operations that flagrantly violate UN Charter principles and other international law.
He called for working together cooperatively to resolve differences.
Instead, US militarism near Russia's borders threatens its security.
Provocative US-led NATO actions undermine mutual trust.
Where is Washington's commitment to non-proliferation matching Russia's pledge, Putin asked?
"(W)e would like to interact with responsible and independent partners with whom we could work together in constructing a fair and democratic world order that would ensure security and prosperity not only for a select few, but for all."
Hegemon USA and its imperial partners operate by their own hardline intractable rules.
They rule out cooperative relations with nations free from US control.
Its rage for dominance threatens everyone everywhere.
No prospect exists for transforming hegemon USA into a partner for peace, stability, cooperative relations with the world community of nations, and respect for the rule of law.
