When the Anglo-Saxon Geopolitical Strategy is applied for Centuries, it Crushes Europe and Russia

“The best and most effective way to secure peace in Europe is to cut off from Russia some of the neighboring territories it later acquired – Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Crimea, Bessarabia, Poland and Finland,” the Lord Palmerston wrote, on May 26, 1854. “If these areas were detached from it, Russia would still be a huge power, but in a less advantageous position to attack its neighbors,” Lord Palmerston continued.

Henry John “Harry” Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston, KG, GCB, PC, FRS (20 October 1784 – 18 October 1865) was a British statesman, who was twice Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the mid-19th century. Palmerston dominated British foreign policy during the period 1830 to 1865, when Britain stood at the height of its imperial power. 

Some argue that in general this is the core of the above policy (Lord Palmerston) that was gradually shaped in the US and which policy was expressed in the US through the Polish-American diplomat and political scientist Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzeziński or Zbig in his book entitled “The Grand Chessboard”.

This book states that with the secession of Ukraine from the Russian sphere of influence, Russia becomes a purely Asian country. Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzeziński served as an advisor to President Lyndon B. Johnson from 1966 to 1968 and was President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor from 1977 to 1981. Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzeziński’s policy was gradually implemented after the collapse of the Communist system in Eastern Europe and dissolution of the USSR.

Russia, on the other hand, argues that the secession of neighboring countries from Russia was provoked by the eastward expansion of NATO and the accession of Poland, Hungary, the Baltic states, Romania and Bulgaria. The secession of Ukraine from the Russian sphere of influence in order to join NATO as well as the cessation of imports of Ukrainian nuclear fuel from Russia in 2021 (Russia accuses Ukraine that in this way Ukraine wants to build nuclear weapons to turns against Russia) seems to have overflowed Russia’s “glass of rage”, giving it the opportunity to invade Ukraine violently.

In addition, Russia argues that the fact that Russia has historically received a series of attacks from the West – from Poland in 1605, Sweden in 1707, France in 1812, Germany in 1914 and again in 1941 – was the reason why it is necessary to create a buffer or neutral zone on its western borders, usually through the annexation of lands in the past. In this regard, Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to pursue – both in 2008 in Georgia and today in Ukraine – a consistent Russian security policy.

There is only one heavyweight dictator, Putin, who does not say to accept that since the collapse of the communist regime the Soviet Union has disintegrated and its member states have become independent and can freely decide on their present and future. So when the independent former Soviet republic called Ukraine decided to join NATO, Putin did not tolerate it and invaded. It invaded an independent country because it believes it has no right to be independent.

That Ukraine is not allowed to decide for herself what to do. He also considers that Georgia, Moldova, not even the unbearably annoying Poland are not an independent country, none of the countries that were under Russian occupation for 70 years and with the collapse of this regime hurried to become independent and do not even want to hear about Russian hegemony.

On the contrary, the United States of America, as a superpower that does not carry the weight of a historical past like Russia and Europe, forms the roots of its ideological core based on the principles of the American Revolution (1775-1784), ie “Democracy”, “Freedom”, “Isonomy”, “Equality”, the principles expressed by a word “Liberalism”, and the principles that US President Joe Biden has undertaken the duty to implement today globally as “the leader of the free world”.

It is the fate of the empires to want to shape the universe according to their perceptions. But war with a nuclear power like Russia is unthinkable today. That is why both superpowers, the USA and Russia, have a heavy “honour” and “responsibility” equally not to cause total destruction on the planet through a nuclear war between them.
