Western corporate media propaganda would have one believe that Russia is not only losing the war in Ukraine but that it is about to disintegrate. Ground realities are very different. Ukraine is gradually being grinded and soon there will be nothing left of it if the war continues.
America is not only prepared to fight against Russia to the last Ukrainian but that Europe has to pay the price. European industries are shutting down, unemployment is rising together with food and energy shortages and people are forced to eat pet food to survive.
Mongolia is a tiny country in terms of population but its geographic location sandwiched between Russia and China gives it a commanding position. Both covet it for gas and oil pipelines as well as transportation corridors. The US-NATO combine wants to disrupt this.
While the western corporate media has been gloating over Russia’s decision to withdraw from Kherson on the western bank of the Dnieper River, the move makes perfect military sense.
Josep Borrell, the EU Foreign Policy chief, gave a rambling speech to EU ambassadors. In addition to his racist remarks about Europe being “paradise” and outside it a “jungle”, his speech failed to address the inevitable emergence of a multipolar world and how to reconcile with it.
The war in Ukraine has gone on much longer than Russia had expected but recent talk of World War Three or even a nuclear war are not only speculative but highly irresponsible
The situation in Ukraine is becoming more complicated. Referendums have been held in areas where pro-Russian sentiment is strong. They will be incorporated into Russia raising the prospects of direct war between the US-led NATO and Russia.
The stupidity of US foreign policy elites has driven Russia, China and Iran closer together into an alliance that will consign US pretensions of being a global power into the dustbin of history. The world will definitely be a much safer place for it.
The global geostrategic situation is changing rapidly. New players have emerged to challenge US piracy and gangsterism. Islamic Iran has emerged as an important player in this new set-up. Its massive financial, economic, political and strategic agreements are laying the foundations of a new global order.
Russia is a very important producer of natural gas and oil. It is also one of the leading exporters of grain. It cannot be isolated in the global energy markets. Those that try to do so will themselves suffer badly as Germany and a number of European countries are experiencing.
The US and its allies have made a strategic mistake by provoking the war in Ukraine with Russia. Ukraine has lost the war and the west, especially the US will pay a heavy price for this folly. The American century is over before it hardly began.
The conflict in Ukraine has opened up space for intrigue in other regions: Central Asia and the Caucasus. NATO regimes would like to create problems for Russia in its near-abroad but there are serious risks for NATO as well.
