It is correct to say the world has shifted, in a way Washington did not imagine
At the same time it is very possible that Washington is attempting to discharge its responsibility as imperial overlord
The scorched earth policy , is a tool being used to reduce American obligation as world policeman
The Americans themselves are fomenting this process, the burdens are heavy and they must rearrange their own house, put things in order.
They understand it is a multipolar world, and that is why Russia gets out of its den, and noone goes to meet it, in fact can we begin to think that this entire situation was wanted? Even desired...?
It's absolutely understood, the world shall be fragmented and partitioned
Cooperation will resume, but how? Under what terms and under what new world order will such cooperation transpire ?
It is all going for Russia exceedingly well, regaining its lands , regaining its sphere of influence in the colloquial backyard, has been achieved at a price, not a deadly one, but at a price.
But in the end, we can say fully , it was worth it, the losers here are many
Russia has paid a great price, but it walks away with more than a simple "we told you so"
With Ukraine, the power balance of Eastern Europe has shifted indefinitely to Russia, seeing the Poles climb down from their Mig29 offer was the greatest revelation to any watcher of the Russia NATO standoff
The weight of power is felt, with Belarus and Ukraine under the mighty power of Great Russia, to exercise influence on the entire region.
The balkans, Hungary, Bulgaria, the Baltics , Poland all of these bodies are pulled into the orbit of the de facto large planet , who's gravity is sinking the rest into a new orbit.
Europe has lost, it has paid the biggest price, for no return at all. Its economy destroyed, and the lebensraum of the 4th reich, lost in operation Z
With Ukraine anchored into Russia, the black sea is a true Mare Nostrum. Turkey in this situation always was allied with the west, but even Turkey due to its actions in the last decade, has found itself in the position where Moscow is the arbiter of affairs that Turkey must acquiesce to , faced with Russia in Odessa, Crimea, Azov, Abkhazia, and Krasnodar... well the situation has changed... quite dramatically
Russia is a nation that will not be talked to or pushed from a position of threats, Russia must be respected in the words of Macron
And it will always be so. The template for Russian leaders has been established in the last 20 years by the Greatest Leader, we can truly give him this title. He has established a precedent, a rule book, that any leader in future times can revisit should they need to.
Eastern Europe has been secured, issues remain, but as Operation Z moves into phase 2, the outcome is all clear. Ukraine, the black sea, Turkey, the Balkans, and the eastern mediterranean bounded by Latakia and soon to be Sudan, gives Russia the keys to Africa and in the words of the late Brzezinski.. I say this with some cynical glee, Russia is an EMPIRE
Central Asia with rapid action in Kazakhstan, and Nagornoh Karabakh, is also in a stasis even with Taliban in Afghanistan. Trade plans for this region are huge. India and Pakistan have felt the tectonic shift in the region.
China itself understands Russia is the most geopolitically self aware and proactive force on the planet.
Operation Z is but a template of what they hope to play out in Taiwan. They can improve upon it, but they must learn from its pioneers.
Latin America also, has been changed indefinitely by this. The VMF has a new mission, and it includes the Carribean, Atlantic, and Pacific oceans, Russia must secure its interest no matter what, operation Z once again, lays the template for future action in every direction.
The possibilities are endless, for Great Russia
And the most significant of all this, was the internal changes for Russia itself.
Seeing Deripaska, Khodorkovsky, wiping tears from their eyes, seeing zelensky with his eyes bloodshot and sunken in
Seeing Russian forces in the suburbs of Irpen and Brovary, paints a vivid picture replete with the gravest realism
This , is not your grandfather's or even fathers Russia, we most definitely are not in kansas anymore
