There are definite signs today that some form of a Neo-Soviet Union is currently evolving in Eurasia



It is becoming increasingly apparent that Moscow is spearheading an agenda to form a new union amongst former Soviet nations. There are clear indicators that the current leadership within CIS states are aware of this agenda and are more-or-less going along with it. Furthermore, it is also obvious that the West is attempting to undermine this effort by Moscow before it fully matures by implementing various countermeasures. Some political analysts in the West have begun to claim that reinstating Russian influence or direct control over former Soviet nations has been one of Russia's fundamental foreign policy interests since the breakup of the Soviet Union. However, in my opinion, the increasing role Moscow has begun to play within former Soviet territories is a direct result of a situation that has gradually evolved as a result of post-Soviet geopolitical and economic necessity and circumstance. I do not believe that this was planned by strategists within the Kremlin in the immediate aftermath of the Soviet collapse.
Nonetheless, if the Russian Federation continues its shrewd geopolitical strategies, tight control over its geographic territories, military buildup and monopolizing of the region's vast natural resources - there is no stopping Moscow from realizing whatever plans it may have for the future for Eurasia. The aforementioned potential of the Russian Federation will be greatly increased if they somehow find common ground with the Chinese. And the ultimate long term danger here is the severe risk the western establishment, the Global Order if you will, faces as the East advances.
It's not a secret that the stability of the western world is highly dependent upon eastern derived gas/oil, eastern manufactured products, and the stability of the mighty US Dollar - which in essence has made the world go round for many decades. It's also not a secret that prosperity of the western world is directly dependent upon the economic/political dependence of non-western nations upon the West. In addition to Moscow slowly monopolizing the vast gas/oil distribution networks of central Asia, and forging strategic alliances across the globe, there has also been serious talk about moving away from the US Dollar who's presence has thus far been ubiquitous in the financial world. If, for instance, the Russian Federation, China, Iran and Venezuela, stops dealing in US Dollars other nations will do so as well. There is a great chance that the United States and its vast global network will collapse as a result.
Thus, in essence, Russia's and China's strategic policies, and to some extent the actions of Iran, Venezuela and various other lesser nations, are directly threatening the long established global elite of the West and its mighty financial system. This threat is a looming crisis taken very seriously by western policy makers and it is somewhat similar to the one posed by the Third Reich during the 1930s and 40s and the Soviet Union during its seventy years existence.
For the financial elite in the West, in other words the western establishment, the Third Reich for all its military might was more-or-less an easy target to destroy for they were inevitably isolated geopolitically and utterly self-destructive in their strategic policy formulations. As a result, there was a temporary alliance, a convergence of interests between East and West, that brought the Soviet Union and the western allies together in order to destroy an urgent problem in Berlin and Tokyo. After the Nazi matter was resolved, the East and the West resumed their hostilities. Nonetheless, the Soviet system, even from its inception, was an utterly hollow power relaying greatly upon sheer force and ideological propaganda to survive. In the eyes of western financial experts, the Soviet Union would collapse sooner-or-later. Thus, the West merely had to wait for the inevitable. And this expectation was finally realized in the late 1980s when the Soviet Union began to fall apart.
However, the gargantuan potential that the current Russian Federation and China have has had no global precedence. From their control of vast amounts of natural resources, land and manpower to their abilities in the technologies sector; from their immense industrial production capacity to their presence in the global market; from their geopolitical impact in Eurasia to their military capabilities; Moscow and Shanghai can potentially and quite literally control the global order within the Twenty First century.
As a result, there will definitely be a major war waged by the financial elite in the West against the emerging East as they previously did against the Third Reich and the Soviet Union. And this new global war may be as nasty if not more than the previous ones. The current battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan are already the initial stages of this war and the other battlefronts that we most probably will get to see in the near future may very well be the Balkans, the Caucasus, the south Pacific, the Levant and south America. Of course all this is strictly contingent upon Moscow and Shanghai maintaining geopolitical independence and self-sufficiency and not allowing themselves to accept the current geopolitical and geoeconomic status quo of the West.
Nevertheless, the bottom line is this: it's all about money and power. It's about the West attempting to maintain the current global/financial system and the East trying somehow to create a new system under its terms.

Dear reader,

Arevordi will be taking a sabbatical to tend to personal matters. New blog commentaries will therefore be posted on an irregular basis. The comments board however will continue to be moderated on a regular basis. To limit clutter in the comments section, I kindly ask all participants of this blog to please keep comments coherent and strictly relevant to the featured topic of discussion. Moreover, please realize that when there are several anonymous visitors posting comments simultaneously, it becomes very confusing (not to mention extremely annoying) trying to figure out who is who and who said what. If you are here to engage in conversation, make an observation, express an idea or just attack me, I ask you to at least use a moniker to identify yourself... or else, I will not post your comments, especially if they are, in my opinion, nonsense. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
