THE RUSSO-TURKISH BOOMERANG 2
Extreme panic and propaganda about CIS-Turkey-China can be prejudicial for 22th century Western world. And I can proove it by talking about 20th century. USSR broke after intense desorganization; the new Soviets States could not handle the Red Army legacy.
In the late 1990s, Russia, the main power of Eurasia, was a mafia-led ghost-state … with lost nukes. Bush Jr was in 2000 in a most powerful position towards Moscow than its father Bush Sr. But the US invasion of Iraq became the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the US intervention in Afghanistan established the US-Russia comparison (See THE BERING TWINS).
After Bush Middle East strategy, plus Obama Eurasia strategy (destabilization or interference in CIS countries: Georgia, Ukraine, Kyrgystan), Russia is in a position of eternal defender, and PUTIN now acts as the defender of human rights and global peace. These Military conflicts give the opportunity to Russia to became a new military power. From 2004 to 2024, Russia would have become the equal of USA, or even military-superior.
Direct confrontation is excluded, but if Iran, Turkey, China-Korea and Pakistan are destabilized, Russia would only form an alliance with them.
