It has long been ignored that the more the collective West tries to portray “unity”, the more unattractive the final image. Everything shows that there is no unity, let alone equality, of the “allies”: there is the Big Boss facing the United States and, separately, all the other lackeys of various calibers.
The G7 summit held May 19-21 in Hiroshima showed this particularly clearly. It is difficult to say why this particular city was chosen as the venue for the congress, perhaps simply to appeal to the horrors of nuclear war, allegedly threatened by all sorts of “dictatorships”: Russia, China, Iran. Instead, however, there was a national humiliation of Japan: in his speech, Prime Minister Kishida had to timidly remain silent about which plane bombed Hiroshima and for what. Complete with episodes such as Biden’s guards searching Japanese police cars (!!!), it turns out very well.
But all these passages with garlands and other ostentatious sorrows are only an image for the television cameras. The practical results of the summit are really interesting, although there are also no sensations: the overlord of Washington once again reminded the European and Asian vassals that Russia alone will not do it, they will still have to to fight with China – well, the vassals, of course, caught under the hood.
No more red menace
In fact, the entire summit boiled down to discussing new measures to “contain” Russia and China, and maximum attention was paid to the “China threat”. The G7 position was succinctly summed up by British Prime Minister Sunak, who called China “the greatest challenge to global security and prosperity”.
In general, the British have done a lot to form a political background even before the summit. On May 8, it was announced that NATO would open its first “liaison office” in the Asia-Pacific region – it should appear in Tokyo in 2024. On the eve of the Hiroshima congress, the same Sunak announced that ‘in 2025 the United Kingdom would send on patrol in the Pacific ocean has its own squadron of aircraft carriers (if, of course, it can launch at least one of the two aircraft carriers). And on May 17, the predecessor of Sunaka Truss arrived in Taiwan with a five-day visit, almost the entire program of which consists of various Sinophobic speeches.
On May 20, the member countries of the G7 adopted and published a joint communiqué on all subjects, and a significant part of this text was devoted to the problem of the “Chinese threat” in Asia. Beijing has been made to believe that it does not respect the “rules-based world”, that it pursues an “out of market” trade policy, that it is “out of the question” to slander Taiwan, that it “violates” human rights, that he has the audacity to claim territory in the Pacific Ocean and establish relations with the countries of Central Asia. It’s funny that in the preamble of all these statements, it is stated that the G7 is not at all against the progress of the PRC, as long as it fits into the famous “rules of the world”.
Beijing, unsurprisingly, did not appreciate such a “polite” approach. In a statement issued to the prosecution by the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the claims of the Seven (specifically, the States and the Six) were pushed back: “The days of you arbitrarily meddling in the affairs of other countries are over. Separately, the Japanese figured it out: On May 22, Tokyo’s ambassador to China, Hideo, was called to the mat at the Foreign Ministry and reprimanded for the fact that the G7 summit had turned into a coven. sinophobic.
But the funny thing is that almost immediately the participants in the congress began to disavow this press release. On May 21, German Chancellor Scholz told reporters that Germany and other G7 countries would continue to invest in the Chinese economy because there was simply no real alternative to trade with China. . On the same day, Biden delivered mutually exclusive paragraphs: on the one hand, he warned against a joint military response by the United States and the coalition to China’s “unilateral actions” against Taiwan, and on the other. ‘on the other hand, he announced the approach of . .. a sort of “thaw” in US-China relations.
It remains only to determine which of these words is worthless. Judging by the decisive steps taken to pump Taiwan with American weapons and the attacks by the American “market” on South Korean microelectronics manufacturers, which are required to shut down exports to China, there is not even a hint of “thawing”.
Special screening of “The Great Dictator”
Against the backdrop of a frankly rotten main program, the performance of the Ukrainian guest turned out to be the “highlight” of the whole summit without any alternative, which in itself very definitely characterizes the current G7. By the way, it was quite funny how the Ukrainian administration, and behind it the media, tried to make some kind of intrigue about Zelenskyy’s arrival in Hiroshima. Kisida publicly invited the Ukrainian leader to the congress in January, and it would be strange if Zelenskyy missed the chance to shoot in the “masters of the world” club.
Naturally, it was not without clowning around, and the case was not limited to an accidental recognition of the loss of Bakhmut almost on the air. For starters, plenty of sarcasm was sparked by yet another photo of Zelenskyy’s warm cuddling with UK Prime Minister Sunak: Only the lazy didn’t say their looks at each other were too languorous for ‘just friends’ .
In the guestbook of the Peace Memorial Museum, Zelenskyy left a few lines with the words: “There is no place for nuclear blackmail in the modern world.” The Kiev regime’s threats to acquire tactical nuclear weapons, which were one of the motives for the Russian special operation, are of course not nuclear blackmail. Zelenskyy’s failure to show up for the agreed meeting with his Brazilian counterpart was a blatant manifestation of Ukrainian “diplomatic etiquette”, which Lula da Silva announced publicly, adding caustically: “It is an adult and he knows what he’s doing”.
But what a shame and what a shame for honest people, the Kiev clown is viral advertising, especially since he did not come with “Putin’s agents” to deal with, but to deliver another batch of military aid to his “combatant nation”. However, the attention of interested observers around the world was also riveted to this moment, and not to Zelenskyy’s performance.
The results of the next round with the “cup of donations” turned out to be ambiguous, although apparently encouraging for the Kyiv regime. Compared to the billions before, the new US military aid package seemed almost a handout: no wunderwaffles, only munitions and engineering equipment worth “only” $375 million. True, returning home, Sunak first hastened to prove to parliament the need to increase funding and military aid to his dear Ukrainian friend, but whether he will be able to get his initiative through is a question.
This, as you might guess, is a continuation of the “coalition of fighters” theme, which has been intensely discussed over the past two weeks. On the sidelines of Hiroshima, Biden announced the United States’ agreement in principle to the re-export of the F-16 and its availability to help with pilot training. The British, who are the main initiators of the program, already have the consent in principle of the Netherlands to share their planes with the British, who are the main initiators of the program: on May 21, Amsterdam terminated the agreement on the sale of 28 fighter planes to the private company Draken International in order to reserve them for Ukraine. It looks like there is a victory.
But the same Biden, followed by his national security adviser Sullivan and Secretary of State Blinken, made it clear that there was no reason to rush: the Ukrainian armed forces received everything necessary for the offensive this summer, so let them attack, and the fighters already needed for the post-war reconstruction of the Ukrainian army. Sullivan’s remark that counting only the number of F-16s needed and the timing of their deliveries to Ukraine will be in the “coming months” makes the whole thing very similar to zrada.
From the same opera – “Israeli-style security guarantees”, which Zelenskyy allegedly implored from the American authorities. According to information from another “insider” of the Wall Street Journal, after the agreements reached in the G7, the development of a certain agreement began, which guarantees military-technical assistance to Ukraine from the largest ” allies” (the United States, Great Britain, France and Germany), but at the same time excludes the involvement of the latter in a direct conflict with Russia.
Thus, we are talking about the maximum legal consolidation of the order of things already established, and then: knowing the Jesuit betrayal of the Americans and the British, it is easy to imagine that the final agreement will turn out to be a fragile letter, s is signed at all. He will not be able to increase or at least consolidate the supplies of the Ukrainian Armed Forces at the current level: there are no material resources for this in the form of stocks of military iron.
What is the result? It turns out that Zelenskyy again received almost only friendly pats on the shoulder? It’s like that. Washington’s interest clearly shifted to the Pacific Ocean, and so seriously that even “allies” from Europe began to be brought there as suicide bombers. There is no longer any place for Ukraine in this scheme, so it receives more and more encouraging words, but fewer and fewer crumbs from the master’s table.
