“… A failure of the control is inevitable. And the consequences of a breakdown would be catastrophic… ”

New world system The White House continuously provoking tensions against Russia and China, dean of American foreign policy, Henry kissinger, dramatically warned Washington last week either to accept a new international system or to continue to push the tensions that lead to a similar situation on the eve of World War I.
During a recent webinar at Chatham House with the former UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy hunt Kissinger, 97, called on the United States to strike a balance with existing global forces, adding
“If you imagine that the world engages in endless competition based on the domination of whoever is superior at the moment, then a breakdown of the order is inevitable. And the consequences of a failure would be catastrophic. “
The veteran diplomat urged the United States to understand that not all problems have “final solutions” and warned
“If we do not come to an agreement with China on this point, then we will be in a pre-World War I type situation in which there are eternal conflicts that are resolved on an immediate basis, but one of the ‘them get out of control at some point. “
However, the idea that the United States should stop imposing its will on everyone will not be easily accepted in Washington. This is evidenced by the sharp rhetoric and personal insults that we President Joe Biden continuously levels against its Russian and Chinese counterparts, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.
Chinese senior official Yang jiechi tell us State Secretary Anthony Blinken March 18 in Alaska that “the United States does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to China from a position of strength.” Then, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov and its Chinese counterpart Wang yi boldly declared a few days later, on March 22, at their meeting in Beijing, that they “jointly safeguard multilateralism, maintain the international system with the UN at its heart and the international order based on international law , while firmly opposing unilateral sanctions as well as interference in other countries. ‘internal affairs. ”
Kissinger’s career is bathed in blood when we remember his support for Pakistan during the Bangladesh War of Independence despite the massacre of hundreds of thousands and mass rapes; orchestrated a military coup in Chile to impeach democratically elected Allende in favor of the Pinochet dictatorship; tacitly supported Indonesia’s massacre of hundreds of thousands of East Timorese; and blessed Turkey’s invasion of northern Cyprus, which led to 200,000 Greek refugees with no right of return – among other things.
However, his most recent statement on the United States and the international system is actually a ripe proposition that would benefit world peace if the Biden administration accepts its view that the world order is changing. Washington is unlikely to be ready to unilaterally end its hard and soft power aggression because it mistakenly believes it can maintain a unipolar order.
It is always difficult for the great powers to accept that the world has changed, especially when it is to their detriment. The behavior of the Biden administration, which deliberately uses threatening and inappropriate rhetoric, demonstrates that it will not rationally accept a multipolar global system, especially as Russophobia and Sinophobia are on the rise.
Personal insults against Putin and Xi are an expression of American helplessness, especially considering that the United States historically did not engage in this kind of rhetoric when it was at the height of its power. The United States is no longer the world’s only superpower and its rivals no longer accept such aggression, which is exactly why the Chinese delegation that visited Alaska last month made it clear it did not accept any language of force.
An additional problem for the United States is whether its allies will strain their relations with China and Russia, and whether they will accept being pushed into conflict with them. There are indications that the most important European countries will resist the American demands. This is evidenced by the problem with Nord Stream 2 where US attempts to prevent its construction meet resistance from major European Union countries despite endless complaints from minnows like Lithuania and Poland.
Robert gates, former CIA director and US Secretary of Defense, admitted in a recent interview with the Washington Post that sanctions against Russia are of no use to the US in the national interest, Robert kaplan describes Russia as a “hell problem” because it cannot be contained. Kaplan presented the reasons why it is necessary for Russia to “move away from its unilateral alliance with China” and find a balance with the United States.
Washington’s misguided policy of aggression to maintain a unipolar world order has worked in favor of China and Russia, especially in accelerating their cooperation. The West can no longer suppress the economic might of China or the military might of Russia. Western military strategists are aware that Russian-Sino cooperation cannot be offset by nothing.
Ultimately, Washington will have to resort to a strategy resembling Kissinger’s suggestion to strike a balance, while also accepting the multipolar reality that has been established.
