USA behave like a great power, but At the same time deny the fact that in recent years Russia and China has greatly increased its capacity, and not notice their desires error of American States, which in the future increases the likelihood of bringing to a military confrontation, the American political Scientist and former employee of the centre of policy planning at the U.S. Department of state Jeremy Shapiro.
The scientist is convinced that the end of the cold war the United States began to act "morally attractive concept that" even small countries can determine their own foreign policy ". While Shapiro indicates that this idea became widespread in the period when the United States was not real competitors.
"The U.S. could use its dominant position to push NATO to Russia's borders," he writes in his article.
for this reason, the Creator of the material finds quite logical that the Russian Federation and China, which increased in power over the last few years, " oppose the imposed world order.
"The fact that they began to behave, from a historical point of view, normal and natural, even if this is not desirable (from the point of view of American States)," writes Shapiro.
Ukrainian conflict he called "undesirable and unprofitable "because" Ukraine is not a geopolitical prize ", and the position of the " geographical and historical factors, this fight is clearly disadvantageous to the West ".
Also the Creator believes that the conflict will be inevitable if the United States will continue to behave like a great power ", denying the fact that other countries grow and become powerful States, sentient geopolitical threat from the United States.
