The Russia–Ukraine War, and America’s War Economy
post view: 12
One of the reasons, in addition to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, for the start of World War I was the continual military build-up between Germany and Britain, as both saw themselves as competitors in global markets, thus leading to military build-up on both sides. There was a dispute between the two sides, which eventually resulted in war. Similarly, the same security dilemma was persistent between Ukraine and Russia as the former was interested in joining NATO, which would result in Western powers reaching Russia’s doorstep, as Moscow is about five hundred kilometers from the Ukrainian border, While the flat area of the Ukrainian-Russian border would be at a strategic disadvantage to Moscow’s defense against NATO. Thus, Russia acted retrospectively and invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Not to mention the fact that ever since Zelensky, the current president of Ukraine came to power, he has been leaning towards the West and pushing Ukraine into the Western Bloc separate strategy, he shut down Russian TV shows, a Putin close Dost was arrested and charged with treason which added to Moscow’s insecurities against Ukraine and exacerbated the security dilemma in the region. Another perspective of the current Russia–Ukraine war is that Russia was supplying for the energy needs of European countries, mainly Germany, which created a rift between the US and the EU as the Russian economic backbone was its energy resources. It supplied global markets, and the US did not want its rival Moscow to be economically sustainable, while its allies such as the European Union depended economically on Russia. Therefore, it is believed that it was in the US interest, especially because of its military industrial complex and global capitalism, that a war in Ukraine and to contain Russia for a significant period of time was its main objective, and perhaps this is the reason is that the US Pushing the narrative for Ukraine to join NATO, which would enrage Moscow to invade Ukraine. John Mearsheimer, an international relations scholar belonging to a realist school of thought, blames Washington for inciting Moscow to invade Ukraine and blames the US for it. He argues that the US was well aware of the fact that granting Ukraine NATO membership, as stipulated by the then US ambassador in Moscow, William Burns (the current director of the CIA), was “the brightest of all redlines” for Russia. But still the US pushed Ukraine to join NATO. It is all because of America, the military industrial complex and global capitalism, which is why America instigated this war. The US continues to work to undermine and undermine Russia by engaging it in Ukraine for a significant period of time while its military industrial complex profits from the war. Kyiv’s ambassador to France said on Friday that according to a recent report, Western countries will give Ukraine more than 300 tanks. “To date, several countries have officially confirmed their agreement to deliver 321 heavy tanks to Ukraine,” Vadim Omelchenko told French TV station and CNN affiliate BFM Television. Omelchenko’s figure comes after the US this week pledged to provide 31 M1 Abrams tanks and Germany agreed to send 14 Leopard 2A6s. Tanks for the battlefield. First the United Kingdom pledged 14 Challenger 2 tanks, while Poland asked Germany for approval to transfer some of its German-built Leopard 2s to Ukraine. Previous military aid, such as the American HIMARS rocket system, was given to Ukraine. North Korea accused the United States and its allies of “further crossing the red line” by sending tanks into Ukraine.
Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said in a statement carried by North Korean media on Friday, “to realize its hegemonic objective of destroying Russia by further increasing the proxy war to destroy Russia.” America has a sinister intention.” The EU along with the US will continue to supply arms to Ukraine, repeating the cycle of global capitalism. resulting in more misery and distraction to wage labor in the Eastern European countryside. The time has come to resolve all disagreements through dialogue and diplomacy as per international norms.
