Joe Biden and the Cold War 2.0

18.03.2021

"Wars will be rarer as the responsibility for their effects is felt by all who promote and incite them" (Juan Bautista Alberdi in "The Crime of War".)

The media irruption of Edward Snowden, former Booz Allen technician, sub-contractor of the CIA, confessing to be the material author of the leaks to The New York Times and The Guardian about the PRISM program (telecommunications espionage in charge of the National Security Agency (NSA), would have unleashed all the alarms in the CIA before the obvious danger of uncovering the unspeakable secrets of the secret basements of the establishment. Putin would have played his tricks with mastery and after granting Snowden temporary asylum, he appeared before the World as a champion of the defense of Human Rights, although aware of the new dynamic action-reaction typical of Cold War scenarios in which Russian-American relations will be involved from this moment (Cold War 2.0).

Return to the Doctrine of Containment or Truman Doctrine

The latest and harsh statements by Joe Biden on Russia ("Putin is a murderer") and the veiled threat of new sanctions would anticipate an escalation of tensions between NATO and Russia, after which it is foreseeable that the US will use Poland's requests as excuse to complete the fifth phase of the deployment of the missile shield in Europe (Euro DAM) that will symbolize the irruption of Cold War 2.0. This will mean the return to the Doctrine of Containment (Truman Doctrine), whose bases were set out by George F. Kennan in his essay "The Sources of Soviet Behavior" published in Foreign Affairs magazine in 1947 and whose main ideas are summarized in the he quotes "Soviet power is impervious to the logic of reason but very sensitive to the logic of force." With the fifth phase of the Euro DAMN deployment parked for the moment, we witness some surprising statements by the British Foreign Minister, Philip Hammond, collected by the newspaper "The Telegrah" in which he affirms that "London could host US nuclear missiles on British soil in the middle of tensions with Russia ”, which could be understood as the return to an arms race like the one maintained during the Cold War with the USSR (reviving the Partnership project between the USA and Europe to supply the United Kingdom with Polaris missiles from July 1962) and having as a collateral effect a possible split within NATO. Thus, we could attend the split and termination of the current NATO from which a new military structure will emerge that would be integrated by the US, Canada, Great Britain, the Baltic States, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Romania, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Malta, Cyprus, Greece and Turkey with the unequivocal objective of being a containment bloc for the “expansionist ideals of Putin”. On the other hand, we will witness the strengthening of the Berlin-Paris Axis, led by France and Germany that will be reflected in the European Defense Agency and that will have gravitating in its orbit of influence to the countries of its original area of influence (Holland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg and Austria), the result of the reaffirmation of French and German national sovereignties as a defensive strategy against the drift of the former "American partner", (reviving the Elysee Treaty between De Gaulle and Adenauer (1963).

New arms race

As Brzezinski explained in the National Interest magazine in 2000, "Europeans will be more immediately exposed to risk in the event that a chauvinist imperialism reinvigorates Russian foreign policy", with which he outlined a plan that would go through the expansion of the NATO to unsuspected limits in the 1990s and the implementation of the new European anti-missile defense system, (European Phased Adaptative Approach (EPAA). Said system is actually a global anti-missile shield in which missiles Interceptors located on mobile platforms can hit targets in a common space (based on data transmitted by all radars and opto-electronic reconnaissance systems), with the Machiavellian goal of following a first surprise attack by the US that would destroy the Russian nuclear potential in their own territory, subsequently neutralizing the Russian replica by means of missiles stationed in Poland.

After the disagreements that arose between the US and Russia over the unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo, Agfasia and South Ossetia, Barack Obama would have parked the Anti-Ballistic Missile Shield (NDM) project, replacing it with "a new mobile anti-missile defense system "with the intention of making Russia a necessary partner in safeguarding world peace and stability. However, in September 2009 President Obama (under pressure from the establishment or power in the shadow of the US), approved the implementation of the new European anti-missile defense system, (European Phased Adaptative Approach (EPAA), which is actually It is about a global anti-missile shield in which interceptor missiles placed on mobile platforms can hit targets in a common space (based on data transmitted by all radars and opto-electronic reconnaissance systems). Initially, Russia and NATO agreed to cooperate in the creation of the anti-missile shield for Europe in November 2010 at the Lisbon Bilateral Summit, since it was vital for Moscow that NATO offer real guarantees that this system would not target Russia and have a legally binding document. binding on the matter. Joe Biden's latest harsh statements on Russia (“Putin is a murderer”) and the veiled threat of new sanctions on Russia would anticipate an escalation of the tensions between NATO and Russia, after which it is foreseeable that the US will use Poland's requests as an excuse to complete the fifth phase of the deployment of the anti-missile shield in Europe (Euro DAM), which would have as a replica on the Russian side the installation in Kaliningrad the new 100-ton inter-continental ballistic missile, ("the killer of the US missile shield" in the words of former Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin) as well as the reactivation of the arms race between the two great powers.

Putin established as a priority after his first appointment as President in 2000, the Modernization of the Armed Forces, Transport and Energy Infrastructures and the Development of New Technologies, (aerospace; robotics; bio-medicine; bio-fuels and nano-technology ) taking advantage of the exuberant liquidity provided by oil revenues. Thus, Moscow has budgeted more than $ 550,000 million for the next five years (25% for nuclear arsenal), highlighting the new fifth-generation Sukhoi T-50 fighter, the new RS-28 Sarmat (Satan II) intercontinental ballistic missile (“the assassin of the US missile shield ”) together with the most advanced aircraft interception technology (S-500 anti-aircraft missile system) with the avowed goal of equating the US as a world superpower by 2025. For its part, The United States would have planned a nuclear program with a duration of thirty years and a cost of one billion dollars as well as a system designed to detect cruise missiles in the United States (JLENS), an arms race that by mimicry will extend to the geographical space that extends from Israel to North Korea (including countries such as Iran, Pakistan, India and China), leaving Latin America and the Caribbean free of nuclear weapons after the signing of the Treaty of Tlatelolco (1967) despite the potential risk of the presence of British nuclear submarines in the Malvines (Falklands).
