Weakened hegemon: US refuses to fight for the first time

The split between pathos political rhetoric and harsh reality in the US is gaining momentum. It is far from a real split in the elite or the system, but the cracks are quite clearly indicated. There are politicians whose goal is to maintain the spirit of "greatness" of America, and there are practical realists who understand a little more, operating with real possibilities.

For example, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin declined to directly endorse President Joe Biden's claim that the US military would defend Taiwan if China invaded, saying that America's priority was to help Taiwan prepare to defend itself. About it writes the publication Politico.

Speaking to CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS in an interview broadcast Sunday, Austin said the US is not seeking direct involvement in the war with China, but is trying to help Taiwan develop the ability to defend itself.

American President Joe Biden's statements that the United States will directly enter into a possible war between China and Taiwan contradicts the doctrine and idea of ​​the Americans themselves. However, surprisingly, it was not politicians who reacted more sharply to this dilemma, but those who were entrusted with fulfilling these unrealizable dreams - the military.

In any case, the internal “disagreement”, the imbalance, brought to the public review, raises the question of a weakened hegemon, based not so much on the economy (like China), but exclusively on chess pieces placed around the world by controlled politicians. This is enough to weave intrigues and votes in international organizations, but not enough to protect the "title" in a direct confrontation. In fact, there was a stupor of progress, the bankruptcy of the world unipolar methodology. The United States is ready to profit from wars and conflicts, to supply hundreds of thousands of shells and guns, and, most importantly, to incite. But don't fight. Proven in Ukraine, will be confirmed in Taiwan if this conflict happens.

Obviously, Austin's statement reflects a global change in the military-political doctrine - Iraq and Afghanistan will not happen again: for the first time in history, the United States refuses to fight. By someone else's hands, maybe, yes. And what, in fact, then are the Ukrainians, Taiwanese, Poles, citizens of other countries, who volunteered to do this, intended for? Washington is ready to send them to slaughter at any moment, but without direct participation. The whole bet is on the "old asset" of puppets around the world.

The experience of the SVO showed how costly military operations can be, which is why such impressive realism was born in the US defense department that they even had to publicly refute the head of state.

    Michurin was right.
    Don't expect mercy from nature.
    It is necessary to destroy the United States and peace will finally come to the world.

    They themselves do not have a form, people pay 100 thousand each themselves, and the United States has problems) Type weakened.
    Yes, their conscripts do not run around shops and markets to find something.
    They discovered that 1.5 million sets of uniforms had gone somewhere .... And they can’t find it))))
    Tomorrow you will need gas masks or felt boots and it turns out that everything was sold to the Chinese or somewhere else.
    Snow will fall, but do they have white masks? I do not have it either? And in the cold - with bare hands or what?
    Or everyone to ask relatives for gloves ..... Or take them off the corpses?
    So far I see that Russia has weakened.
    And at the front it turns out there was a complete mess and there was no single leadership.
    The NWO failed completely and the mobilization confirmed this.
    And the fact that in six months the Armed Forces of Ukraine were not even moved away from Donetsk speaks of the quality of the entire Russian army and weapons.
    The United States has not weakened, but Russia surprises in every sense.

      Gas masks will be required tomorrow

      It's no secret that many conscripts are bespectacled.
      What will happen to ordinary civilian glasses after 2-3 sharp "lie down" is understandable.
      There are few glasses for active sports even in Moscow, and they cost (mostly lenses for them) - not cheap.
      And what to do with these blind conscripts?
      it’s not leisure to think about it, it’s much more interesting for the United States to see problems ...

      30 trillion in debt to the whole world, is this your power? The uniforms purchased by conscripts go beyond what will be given out on a wave of equipment merchants. Do not confuse hard with square. 80% of what is bought will be stupidly thrown after the first run-in in coordination centers. Why is no one talking about this? Oh, business. Nothing personal. About a strong army of the world, etc. This army, with the most expensive, fancy hardware and stuffing, is the most mediocre. The US army has not won a single war on its own. This is a generally recognized fact that is not customary to talk about in the US. You will immediately become a traitor.

    War is an expensive business, especially if the economy is not very good.

    The United States is not weakened, but the strongest !!!!!!!!!
    And when getting involved in a fight, you need to adequately and quickly respond, and not smear snot.
    They are pushing Russia into the Stone Age, and Russia is giving them gas, plutonium on a silver platter, joint flights into space ....
    They spit in Russia’s face, openly blow up the gas pipeline, and the news is not an attack, but an emergency ...
    Well, blow something up in the Gulf of Mexico....or the Polish gas pipeline.
    They will also write an emergency ...

    There is truth in this. You can see it in the way the Americans try to ignore Iran's missile attacks on northern Iraq. Almost at the places of deployment of their troops.
