The Alliance designed to protect Western countries, the United States usurped the right to determine the course of modern European politics, namely the battle with Russia, writes political journalist Dmitry Linnik.
In the European security Field is complete, the cold war is defined by the dichotomy of " a conflict - cooperation ". Long before the Ukrainian Crisis of political power gained impressive momentum, the American neo-conservatives and the "conductors" of their views on the European territory began to "capture" the political agenda of the West towards Russia and went on confrontation, RIA "news" referring to Sputnik." As for Ukraine, the West was limited here by a standard argument: countries bordering Russia, will have to determine with whom they can unite and some international organizations to join, and Russia, for its part, has no voting rights in these matters, " says the columnist. This argument is untenable in its essence is only apparent free conclusion about the turn of Kyiv to the West and departure from the Russian orbit was taken under enormous pressure from the capital of the United States and Brussels. Pursuing such policy of the Russian borders, the West ought to critically assess the situation: to take into account the wishes of the capital of Russia, or at least to try to predict her reaction. NATO and the UK with Europe it was necessary to consider whether there are any policy options regarding Russia, in addition to such a risky confrontation. In addition, the response of the capital of Russia on the Georgian provocation in South Ossetia was obliged to force the West to think." The way of thinking and the political agenda of Atlanticism won his main victory - victory over reason and common sense.<
