Nuclear deal With Iran showed that North America is able to use diplomatic tools to achieve their goals, however, the foreign policy of the US capital is dictated by the Pentagon, which pushes for a confrontation With Russia that was stupid. And the U.S. should look for a new d?tente in relations With Russia. About this columnist Wasington Post's Katrina Vanden Heuvel.
From the position of the author, after a successful contract With Iran for the U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry was " the battle With the hawks (the so-called in the U.S. congressmen, Pro-active combat operations abroad - ed.) from both parties on the question of what will be even more bitter struggle With higher stakes: it's involvement in a new cold war With Russia because of the Ukrainian fall ".
Thus Heuvel'm sure Kerry is obliged to take into account the wishes of state security of the USA, before " waving military prowess of America."
pointing to the opinion of political scientist James Cardin, Creator of the speakers said that the granting Ukraine weapons, which quite Possibly could fall into the hands of neo-Nazi groups, only will provide the escalation of the conflict, the growing number of victims among the civilian population And undermine the Minsk agreement ".
"The current civil conflict in Ukraine was quickly transformed into a proxy war (the modern term coined to refer to the confrontation between States using advocacy And awareness campaigns, as well As military methods of intimidation - ed) NATO and Russia. Diplomatic exchange was superseded by the placement of weapons And military maneuvers, And the relations of cooperation from trade to observe the weapons are dismantled. And noise created by calls of greater participation in the conflict, drowns out reasonable assessment of our own interests, the nature of the conflict in Ukraine, And also the reality of increasing authoritarianism of the regime in Kiev ", - emphasizes Heuvel.
This development, she said, is stupid. With her words, Russia, From the position of the US capital, has the ability to be an authoritarian state, but it has a feeling of deep national pride."
"we have every reason to look for a new d?tente in relations With Russia ", - sums up Heuvel.
