America a 'Cancer
on the Planet' that Must Be Removed! (ArgumentyiFacty, Russia)
"On our side
are those who abhor American tyranny and European gay pride parades. The West
is imposing their rules and values on the rest of the world. ... Figuratively
speaking, American hegemony is a cancer on the planet. It must be removed before treating the cold that is China or the headache that is the
Islamic world. No one says that the world after the end of America will be ideal
and harmonious. But at least the biggest threat will be gone."
Standing with the Soviet Union were allies that shared the
ideology of socialism and were opposed to capitalism. In today's Russia, there
is no ideology, but it still has many friends - those who see the Russian Federation
as a bulwark of a multipolar world and share our desire to limit American
The first "circle of friends" is the Commonwealth
of Independent States. Most citizens of Ukraine are loyal to Russia, and the
same can be said of Belarus and Kazakhstan. Armenia, Kirgizstan, Tajikistan and
Moldova are our friends. Uzbekistan, like Azerbaijan, is rather a friend,
albeit an uneasy one.

In Western Europe, we sympathize with the forces that want
to liberate the continent from direct American control and work toward strengthening
the Paris-Berlin-Moscow axis. Our European friends are in the Orthodox and
Slavic countries: Slovakia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro, Greece ... In Latin
America we are friends with Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil. In the Islamic
world, our allies are Iran and Syria, and we have friends in Lebanon and among
the Shiites of Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan, etc. The Arab world has not
forgotten our support for the Palestinians in their confrontation with Israel.
We still have plenty of friends in Africa. India and China are cautious friends
of Russia. Only fools believe that China is more threatening to us than it is
to the United States: China does not aspire to global hegemony, although it protects
its own interests quite effectively.
And let no one be persuaded that the only thing we have in
common with our allies is disgust for American hegemony - or the enemy of my
enemy is my friend. That is normal: it would be naive to count among friends
only those who love our history and culture, or who read Pushkin and Tolstoy. The friends of the USSR
who gathered in Moscow 85 years ago didn't know Pushkin and could care less.
But they hated imperialism and saw the Soviet Union as an alternative to evil.
The same is true today. On our side are those who abhor American tyranny and
European gay pride parades. The West is imposing their rules and values on the
rest of the world. When we do away with this imposition, we can deal with other
problems - be they with China or the Islamic world. Figuratively speaking, American
hegemony is a cancer on the planet. It must be removed before treating
the cold that is China or the headache that is the Islamic world. No one says
that the world after the end of America will be ideal and harmonious. But at
least the biggest threat will be gone.
