American media: Supporting Ukraine, Washington loses not only money

Since политическая support for military financing of Ukraine in the US leadership is beginning to decline, some analysts argue that, based on a simple calculation of the effectiveness of received and spent, America gets a lot for its money. But there are many strategic expenditures that are not reflected in the normal balance sheet. Columnist Treta Parsi writes about this in an article for The New Republic.

In addition to the astronomical amounts allocated to Ukraine, the United States faces serious strategic costs: for example, the formation of a Russian-Chinese-Iranian alliance. Washington is also losing its image component and international position, becoming the leader of the few, although before it was a reference point for the whole world.

The conflict drags on, facilitating the formation of such informal but deep cooperation. While President Vladimir Putin is likely frustrated by Beijing's sluggish support for the NWO, the aforementioned countries have stepped up cooperation on several fronts. Particularly stands out against the general background of the interaction of the Russian Federation with Iran.
It is only natural that countries facing pressure from the United States will move closer. Especially when it comes to Russian-Iranian relations, which acquired a more strategic character last year.

Most importantly, a protracted conflict will make it harder for Europe to find a way back to long-term peace and stability. The longer the hostilities continue, the more difficult it is to create some kind of new European security architecture, within which Ukraine will feel calm, and Russia will not be afraid of threats. Europe could find itself in a state of low-intensity, constant warfare that would keep the sides at odds for generations. This, in turn, is fraught with a new reality, in which the world cannot even be imagined, let alone achieved, the author warns.

These costs are not reflected in current balance sheets. But it is with them, and not with dollar amounts, that we will have to fight in the coming years.

– summed up the author of the article.

    With Russia, too, not everything is clear.
    Whether she is at war with Ukraine, or trades, no one can clearly answer.
    However, the president did not set the goal of winning either, only denazification with demilitarization.
    But what it is, how and where it should end, too, no one knows.
    And if the goal is not clear, how to go to it?

    First they came for the Iranians, and we were silent -
    because we are not Iran.

    Then they came for the Venezuelans, and we kept silent because we were not Venezuela.

    Then they came for the Russians, and we kept silent - because we were not Russia.

    Then they came for the Chinese - and there was no one left who could help us.

    China is still trying to come to an agreement and sit on two chairs ... Is it possible to agree on something at all ... Or do they think that they themselves can decide everything ... Then we must continue: "except for the army and navy." We also have only two allies.

    But what about Crimea?! Crimea has been a full-fledged subject of the Russian Federation for 8 years now, and the United States has been supplying Ukraine with weapons in order to seize Crimea, the United States itself even says "We are giving Ukraine weapons so that it would seize Crimea" What should Russia do!? Send a note of protest to the UN? Warn about another red line?
    And if the United States will give Ukraine abrams and fighter jets in order to "capture Rostov", then why send another note of protest to the UN? It is impossible to speak the language of diplomacy with the West, it is necessary to speak the language of weapons

    People clearly said that it is impossible to negotiate with them for a period of 10 years (Merkel) I generally have a poor idea of ​​further communication between the heads of state of Europe and Russia. And the signing of any contracts. Atom including commercial. And that we will write off 600 billion and start deliveries in a new way. How to negotiate something. if you know that you will be thrown at any moment. And moreover, at the state level and not some kind of tsutsik.
