point of view. On March 21, 2023, Vladimir Putin publicly revealed the nature of the war with the United States in the presence of Xi Jinping. and Latin America. ”
Vladimir Putin is saying this now because the diplomatic, military, economic and financial conditions are in place.
Simply put, remember that America’s power is based on the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This situation allows the US to feed the dollar’s underlying Ponzi pyramid as countries around the world need the dollar for trade. The US military’s mission is to impose dollars across the planet and punish rebellious nations when they emerge. For example, Libya, which had ambitions to launch a gold-linked pan-African currency. A collapse of the dollar will therefore be a true witness of a geopolitical paradigm shift.
words of explanation
To fully appreciate the significance of Vladimir Putin’s statement, one thing must be kept in mind. Official statements by heads of state generally do not announce intentions. Fait accompli. So if Vladimir Putin has announced the end of dollar hegemony, it is because the problem has been going on for some time and has reached a tipping point where the American economy is in great danger. So much so that the issue was recently discussed on CNN. Economists invited to discuss the issue simply stated that de-dollarization would be a disaster for the United States and the American people and would lead to hyperinflation in the United States.
Mistakes between the US and the EU
Moreover, beyond the technical explanation, the failure of certain American banks could be just a precursor to the global collapse of the Ponzi pyramid.
state of play
In finance, the US and EU dug their own grave in 2014 by excluding some Russian banks from the SWIFT interbank trading system. This prompted Russia and China to develop their own systems. Today, her CIPS in China supports exchanges between non-Western countries. But SWIFT is not only a financial system, it is also, perhaps most of all, a valuable intelligence tool. Because this allows us to know all the commercial transactions between the countries of the world. Therefore, economic exchanges between non-Western countries will become increasingly opaque to the United States and the West in general. This is a pity.
In parallel, in July 2015, the Shanghai-based BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) was officially opened. Dilma Roussef has just been appointed its head. Therefore, we have all the tools in place to develop non-dollar trade. Additionally, India’s central bank has now approved international settlements in the Indian rupee, and Saudi Arabia is preparing to sell its oil to China for the yuan. This is the end of the petrodollar.
In the diplomatic field, things are accelerating and events are continuing one after another. Let’s take the latest, less than a month old.
- Re-establishment of diplomatic relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia under Chinese auspices.
- Reception of Bashar al-Assad by Vladimir Putin in Moscow. In this regard, we must follow the fate of operations in Syria and US installations there.
- Bashar al-Assad and his wife travel to the United Arab Emirates.
- Iran and Iraq have signed a security cooperation agreement to block CIA-backed Kurdish activity.
- Xi Jinping was received by Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
- Xi Jinping received Luis Inacio Lula for five days in Beijing.
- Russia-Africa Forum in Moscow with African leaders.
This series of diplomacy takes place one year after a major change in the world. The non-aligned nations are gradually moving away from benevolent neutrality to, to say the least, tacit support for Russia, as evidenced by Africa’s rejection of the West and the recent Russia-Africa Forum. More importantly, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the BRICS, two organizations underpinning the emerging new geopolitical paradigm, are becoming increasingly attractive.
Remember that SCO is shaped like a Russian doll. The first circle is member countries, the second circle is observer countries, and the third circle is discussion partners. A meeting held in Samarkand on 15-16 September 2022 clarified Iran’s obligations to join the organization and initiated the process of accepting Belarus as a member state, while Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the Maldives. , agreed to include the United Arab Emirates as a member state. New discussion partners for Emirates, Kuwait and Myanmar.
As for BRICS, under China’s initiative ‘BRICS Plus’ format in May 2022, the organization can more easily open its doors to prospective members. There are currently four official applications for him in Algeria, Argentina, Iran and Mexico. Countries where all have some degree of regional weight. There are also many not yet official expressions of interest, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Senegal, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, Philippines, Vietnam and South Korea.
We are witnessing the world moving more rapidly and concretely towards this new geopolitical paradigm.
military operation support
of my previous article, mentioned at least two possible strategic options for Russia in the war in Ukraine. It is now reasonable for Vladimir Putin to choose the predominantly economic option of strangling Western powers, with support from China and others, and to think that military action would serve the “dominant thrust”. It seems.
From this angle, Russia’s strategy and tactics in Ukraine take on a different meaning. It is a matter of destroying the array of forces raised by Ukraine and NATO and sustaining the war through slow but constant tactics of gnawing until the West is exhausted economically and consequently militarily. is.
In this regard, let us quote the words of Yevgeny Prigogin, who declared on November 28, 2022: The word “task” is important. In coordination with the Russian General Staff, it clearly signifies that Wagner has a specific mission.
By making Bakhmut-Artyomovsk a strategic military target, making it particularly symbolic, the Russians will draw Ukrainian units that pile up on top of each other, bringing down other parts of the front line. His maintenance of 600,000 men along the front line also provides the potential for strategic strikes in some locations and is therefore a persistent threat that causes headaches for NATO staff.
Alongside this attrition and depletion strategy, Russia is asserting technological superiority through the conservative and judicious use of its hypersonic missiles, dissuading NATO countries from taking the extra step. The salvo of missiles sent a clear message, one of which reportedly destroyed NATO’s secret headquarters on the outskirts of Kiev. Six hypersonic missiles are enough to sink six American carriers simultaneously.
The collapse of the dollar is underway
In effect, Russia has already beaten the US and NATO. The emergence of a multipolar world has accelerated dramatically over the past year, especially in the last few weeks, and is becoming a reality before our very eyes. A collapse of the dollar is underway, and we can expect a series of Western bank failures and hyperinflation in the near term.
On the ground, Russia will reintegrate Novorossia into the Commonwealth. how? Once the Ukrainian army is completely depleted, you can either launch a quick military strike or negotiate to impose terms.
In the old world, a falling dollar would lead to a collapse in living standards in the United States, to the point of questioning whether the Commonwealth would survive this shock, and a domino effect to the Western and European economies. We will see the dissolution of NATO and the EU and the phenomenon of not necessarily violent insurgencies leading to regime change.
If the new government deserves it, this will be an opportunity for France to regain its sovereignty and its place in the world.
