Hegemony Spawns Russian-Chinese Military Alliance
By Paul Craig Roberts
" -- -- This
week the Russian and Chinese militaries are conducting a
joint military exercise involving large numbers of troops
and combat vehicles. The former Soviet Republics of
Tajikistan, Kyrgkyzstan, and Kazakstan are participating.
Other countries appear ready to join the military alliance.
This new potent military alliance is a real world response
to neoconservative delusions about US hegemony. Neocons
believe that the US is supreme in the world and can dictate
its course. The neoconservative idiots have actually written
papers, read by Russians and Chinese, about why the US must
use its military superiority to assert hegemony over Russia
Cynics believe that the neocons are just shills, like Bush
and Cheney, for the military-security complex and are paid
to restart the cold war for the sake of the profits of the
armaments industry. But the fact is that the neocons
actually believe their delusions about American hegemony.
Russia and China have now witnessed enough of the Bush
administration’s unprovoked aggression in the world to take
neocon intentions seriously. As the US has proven that it
cannot occupy the Iraqi city of Baghdad despite 5 years of
efforts, it most certainly cannot occupy Russia or China.
That means the conflict toward which the neocons are driving
will be a nuclear conflict.
In an attempt to gain the advantage in a nuclear conflict,
the neocons are positioning US anti-ballistic missiles on
Soviet borders in Poland and the Czech Republic. This is an
idiotic provocation as the Russians can eliminate
anti-ballistic missiles with cruise missiles. Neocons are
people who desire war, but know nothing about it. Thus, the
US failures in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Reagan and Gorbachev ended the cold war. However, US
administrations after Reagan’s have broken the agreements
and understandings. The US gratuitously brought NATO and
anti-ballistic missiles to Russia’s borders. The Bush regime
has initiated a propaganda war against the Russian
government of V. Putin.
These are gratuitous acts of aggression. Both the Russian
and Chinese governments are trying to devote resources to
their economic development, not to their militaries. Yet,
both are being forced by America’s aggressive posture to
revamp their militaries.
Americans need to understand what the neocon Bush regime
cannot: a nuclear exchange between the US, Russia, and China
would establish the hegemony of the cockroach.
In a mere 6.5 years the Bush regime has destroyed the
world’s good will toward the US. Today, America’s influence
in the world is limited to its payments of tens of millions
of dollars to bribed heads of foreign governments, such as
Egypt’s and Pakistan’s. The Bush regime even thinks that as
it has bought and paid for Musharraf, he will stand aside
and permit Bush to make air strikes inside Pakistan. Is Bush
blind to the danger that he will cause an Islamic revolution
within Pakistan that will depose the US puppet and present
the Middle East with an Islamic state armed with nuclear
Considering the instabilities and dangers that abound, the
aggressive posture of the Bush regime goes far beyond
recklessness. The Bush regime is the most irresponsibly
aggressive regime the world has seen since Hitler’s.
If only a sweet young thing would volunteer to give Bush a
blowjob so that he can be impeached before he leads us to
