US Shift in Strategy Towards Moscow
Ronald Reagan was well-known for his wit and humor, particularly in his speeches and interactions with the media. One of his most famous jokes about the Soviet Union was during a speech in Berlin in 1987, where he famously said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Almost 36 years later, the publication, TIME, has reported a significant shift in the White House’s strategy towards Moscow, indicating a radicalization of its approach. The article asserts that NATO has become more assertive, despite the Kremlin’s nuclear threats, and the US government has hardened its anti-Russian stance. Over the past year, President Biden has expressed his determination to support Ukraine in defending itself against Russian aggression and ensuring that it has the strongest possible military position when the time comes for a negotiated settlement of the conflict. However, anonymous White House sources have repeatedly emphasized that defeating Russia was not the declared objective. Now, according to TIME, the defeat of Russia is on the agenda. The article quotes an anonymous representative of the US administration stating that “We want Ukraine to win…it will mean the return of the territory occupied by the Russians.” The article also suggests that if the Russians withdraw, it will be seen as their defeat and will be welcomed. The publication suggests that the Ukrainian army will have a decisive advantage in the fall due to the deployment of a significant number of imported military devices. However, the article notes that no one in the West understands what Putin will do when Russian troops retreat to their home garrisons, having suffered a humiliating defeat.
In the early 1970s, during the Nixon administration, a high-level delegation of Chinese officials visited the United States. One of the Chinese officials, who had been trained in Marxist ideology, asked a member of the U.S. delegation, “What do you think is the meaning of the French Revolution?” The American replied, “It’s too soon to tell.” By abandoning the tradition of changing party leaders established by Deng Xiaoping, Comrade Xi Jinping executed a de facto coup d’état and established himself as the Emperor of the Celestial Empire. Emboldened by his impressive domestic achievements, Xi Jinping continued to make history on a global scale, claiming that humanity had not witnessed such a momentous period in the last century. To further consolidate his power, Xi Jinping sought to establish a network of vassals from surrounding barbarian tribes. Expanding on his successful foreign policy, he strategically moved to integrate Putin’s Russia as a raw materials appendage of the Empire. However, in doing so, Xi Jinping may have made a grave mistake. The consolidation of power under one leader, as well as the expansion of imperial ambitions, could have far-reaching consequences for both the Celestial Empire and the rest of the world.
