From the Bosporus to the Bosphorus: globalization versus globalism

From the Bosporus to the Bosphorus: globalization versus globalismRussian Security at close East-West

Relatively recently, globalization and globalism seen as synonyms. These concepts in the near future are increasingly began to act as polar opposites not only in politics, and in the geo-strategy. This is clearly evident in the first decade of the XXI century with the announcement by Washington after the September 11, 2001, "the global counterterrorism war" (Gatwick). Another anniversary of the catastrophe "911" coincided with the 2 — September APEC summit in Vladivostok. His lack of perceptible at this summit, U.S. President Obama explained to the outbreak in the U.S. presidential race, as their role in the ceremonies at the eleventh anniversary of "jihad-terrorism against the twin skyscrapers of Manhattan."

Of course, neither Obama, when he had offered wreaths at the place of the destroyed skyscrapers, nor his main rival in the presidential race for the Republican Romney could not then foresee that the mere holding of mourning for aggressive towards Islam with slogans insulting the Prophet Muhammad, may result in an explosion of anti-Americanism in Muslim world. In Benghazi, where they start a "revolution" against the Gaddafi regime, with arson, and the defeat of the U.S. Consulate General was killed by salting the U.S. in Libya Chris Stevens and three staff missii.V the opening day of the APEC summit in Russia as well as in America, celebrate the end of 2 the Second World War. But held in the Far East, the APEC summit was not only the geo-historical anniversaries, and the new geopolitical configuration. For Russia the Asia-Pacific region, with all its unfinished wars and the "pending" conflicts has always been and remains as close as the Greater Middle East. APEC economies, as well as the GME continue to experience for yourself to the ongoing global financial and economic crisis. Unresolved territorial disputes and conflicts between Russia and Japan over the Kuril Islands, China and Japan, Korea and China in the East China Sea still give a point to know as well as the prolonged after the second world war, the Middle East conflict node in the Mediterranean and in the Persian Gulf. It reminds about themselves, not only in Afghanistan and Iraq, but now again in Libya and Syria. There's still more war can break out without the intervention of the U.S. and its NATO allies.


In the lexicon of political scientists has managed to gain a foothold definition of the "Greater Middle East". Armed conflicts and wars in the Greater Middle East with unfailing regularity alternate there with the new crisis shocks.

Analysts are not only in the West, and sometimes in Russia portend that the criteria of unresolved crises such conflicts in the Middle East may prove some small parties in relation to the pending territorial disputes in the Asia-Pacific region.

The concept of globalization and globalism in the sight of the design of anti-globalists in the West and in the East the Islamists often identified. But recent actions by the GME demonstrate that it is far not one and the same. Globalization and globalism at close to the Russian Federation East-West is not so much in the dual bundle denoted by Latin versus, but more often now and in their opposition to — (in Latin Sontre-versus).

Washington declared a "global war on terror"-anti-terror failed to limit the holding of 2-operation "Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan with a "shock and awe" in Iraq. They are after the official announcement of the end of their protracted wars continue to be accompanied by "anti-terrorist terror" in Palestine-Israel, now and next door to them in Syria. The human loss only US-NATO forces in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq overshadowed by the disaster victims, "911." The scale of human losses, especially among the civilian population in the hot spots GME — Palestine, Israel, Syria, and Yemen, and earlier in Libya have already reached the eight-year war casualties in Iraq and Iran. According to the estimates of military professionals, war Terrorism has cost America 3.3 trillion. From their dollars on military action only in Afghanistan and Iraq have spent more than half of that amount.

Total expenditure in the world to fight terrorism over the past 11 years, no one has yet calculated. Lifestyle and behavior of the people during this period of time the entire planet changed beyond recognition. All have become accustomed to searches and searches at airports, railway stations, during concerts and even the Olympic Games.

With the arrival of the second wave of Arab "revolutions" of the military-political situation in the Greater Middle East is likely even more acute. Do not stop fighting and attacks in Afghanistan and in Iraq. New outbreaks of violence in the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem pose a danger of breaking the Israeli-Palestinian dialogue. Markedly activated subversive activities of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, "Al-Qaeda" in the south of Arabia and North Africa.

Does not weaken the aggravation of the nuclear crisis with Iran. All this turns into an extended region of the GME arena "global war" of terror, counterterrorism. Globalization with globalism presented here even more nasty surprises than the "prizes" such as the award four years back the upfront Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President Barack Obama for his good intentions to make "a world without war, free of nuclear weapons."

The current global economic crisis against the backdrop of unfinished wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and also developing the nuclear crisis with Iran could be a catalyst for the collapse and the remaining single block — NATO. Certainly, only time will come if the replacement strategy for the US-NATO globalism multipolar world order globally.

Is noteworthy that the head of the country, located as our home, at the junction of Europe and Asia, four years back characterize the situation as a "civilizational" crisis. In his article "The Fifth Way", he noted that it "has long been at the same time, there are signs of urgent crises — the industrial, energy, environmental, food, social, and even political-military." This provides a basis for the determination of the global crisis as a system-wide, developing very little in 3 areas — the global economy, global politics and global security. Global danger posed by this crisis, and intend to certain terms of developing adequate global response. South American globalism is with all this, not the least obstacle to the development of the process of globalization than the international terrorism, which declared a global war.

Win-Loss in "alternative history"

The historical phenomenon of "optimistic tragedy" in the XX century, manifested in the fact that the damn script "alternative history" prevented "globalization" the second world war, after it almost immediately were drawn into the Soviet Union and the United States. Other scripts in post-war history could also emerge quite differently if not for the 'international' solidarity Russian Union has a decisive support for anti-colonial and liberation movements and revolutions, as, for example, in China, Vietnam, Cuba, in the Arab world and in the a number of other Asian and African countries.

The international community is now difficult to keep up with the modern look of a multi-level
process of globalization and the challenges it crises. This applies to both current avalanche course of events, as well as estimates now celebrated landmark anniversaries and historical dates nedavneshnego past. Neither politicians nor the politicians, nor the global scientific community far not always kept pace with the developments. For example, the creators released INTERNATIONALLY encyclopedia "Global Studies" (Wiley, 2006), which was attended by more than 650 scientists from 58 countries, were not able to predict the impending global crisis already. Although the glossary encyclopedia various global processes of globalization have devoted more than fifty articles — in any of them there was no mention of an impending global economic, much less system-wide and civilizational decline.

The global crisis has highlighted the back of turnover in the previous cyclical crises and wars. It may be recalled that during the Second World War that followed majestically depression in America, the crisis drew Russia and the United States almost immediately from the East and the West. Today's global crisis was a continuation of Gatwick and completed there wars.

End of the second world war in Washington seems to be co-operated with the start of the war was already cool. By definition, the creators Harperskoy encyclopedia "World History Wars", after the introduction of nuclear weapons has a "nuclear era 2-superpowers." With the expansion of the "nuclear club" and adding to its four founders still 5 "illegals" in the Near, Middle and Far East comes the "nuclear age" is for all multipolar globalized world.

Politics and economics are themselves in the global decline as a continuation of a descent of several incomplete or interrupted by the war in the Near, Middle and Far East. Our homeland is again involved in a "global war" is now practically right outside and the inside.

A year before the onset of the global crisis, President Vladimir Putin met with a group of young writers. In a conversation with them because he often used the word 'competition' that one young writer dreamed NIGHT MODE, like "World War Competition" has already begun. The current global crisis is synthesized internally competitive war is not only in the economy but also in politics, ideology and military sphere. War, let's call them "the unknown generation" has been going on many fronts with variable "Win-Loss" is not only in the other stories.

We can only thank God that in the military sphere, they are conducted without the introduction of nuclear weapons, attributable to the "weapons of the fifth generation." When now there are disputes about the legality of Israel, Pakistan, India, North Korea or Iran have the same its nuclear weapon as a guarantor of their security, not only at the theoretical level, the question arises as any of those wishing to join the "nuclear club" has ripened to the desired level moral responsibility to use this tool as a deterrent to suicidal war.


In the criteria of the new challenges and threats of the CSTO and the SCO has knitted assess the evolving situation in the world and react to it accordingly. This explains, for sure, and background accession until only as "partners" not only Asian Sri Lanka, and the willingness to soon join them as Belarus. The set is a "partnership" with the SCO significantly increases the role of the Union and countries like Belarus-Russia binding link between Central Europe and was formed after the collapse of the Soviet Union in Central and Northern Eurasia. In the latest geopolitical structure also includes the Central Eurasia (South) Caucasus, Central Asia and Kazakhstan. The unique position of the Russian Federation with all this lies in the fact that she was the only Eurasian power, which has a common land border with a country made up with her partner, both in Europe and Asia.

Coupled with the countries of the CSTO and SCO, she has one of the first to enter adjustments in its military doctrine, clarifying previously concluded treaties and agreements on joint defense with the other states.

Global system-wide crisis with mine raised together with all countries of APEC and the SCO Group to the level of the new global problems. Meeting in Beijing in the year of the 60th anniversary of China Council of Heads of Government of the SCO has been particularly significant. At the center of his attention was the development of an overall strategy to overcome the global crisis. Perhaps a more fundamental adopted at that meeting, the decision was the establishment of the SCO Interbank Association and one vkladyvatelnogo fund. President Putin, while summing up his own official visit to China, has underlined that the cooperation with China within the SCO is becoming a truly strategic. Based on mutual trust, the SCO is "really a factor recognized in the world of global security and economic cooperation," countries in Europe and Asia.

Globalism and the regionalization WITHOUT BORDERS

The outbreak of the August 2008 war in the Caucasus is the West in his old "great game" against Russia as an occasion not only to build up NATO's military presence in Georgia. Very tempting now presented for the United States to provide the prospect of the periodic occurrence of the South American fleet in the Black Sea. This would help speed up the creation of the ring US-NATO bases and advanced missile positions on a collision course "expansion" of the Greater Middle East and the North-Atlantic Alliance without the formal accession of Georgia, Azerbaijan, and in the future may be, Moldova and Uzbekistan. Russia's recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, while leaving open the question of their future status. This should not be, but is not likely to join in the future the CSTO or SCO.

On the first plan in the order of values latest strategy of national security of the Russian Federation in connection with the objective of ensuring interconnected between a European and Eurasian security. It can not be ignored and defending the sovereignty of the new Caucasian countries in the event of infringement by Georgia with the support or encouragement of its US-NATO globalists.

After taking responsibility for the Treaty on Friendship and Cooperation with the new states in the Caucasus are independent concept of military (defense) strategy of Russia will remain a "three-pronged" — with the inclusion of the state (with the value of protecting the rights of every citizen and society as a whole), federal, other words of state integrity, and geopolitical (external and internal) security Russian Federation. This triad will be able to guarantee the protection of our national interests and those countries with which Our homeland is associated contractual obligations within the framework of the EurAsEC, CSTO or the future of the Eurasian Union and the SCO. Their geopolitical security will be able to more perfectly refreshed provided the strategic triad of nuclear-missile deterrence land, sea and air and space forces. It should include a set of measures are now being developed for military-technical, organizational reform of the armed forces of the country, renovation and improvement of the entire system of public security and the military.

The principle for all this is the introduction of the Russian Federation mirosozidatelnoy role not only in Afghanistan and Syria, as in the settlement of the Middle East conflict, taking into account the growing role of Iran in the Middle East Bolshennom.

SEEK SAFETY Together Or povroz?

The worst case scenario would be an aggravation of the military-political situation in the Black Sea-Caspian region or in the Far East, it can be a prototype is not safe for all parties. It is not always all that bad for the Russian Federation, certainly may be the best
for the United States or the country of the rising sun. The emergence of, for example, in the North Caucasus certain "Islamic caliphate" would be the same "gift" for the U.S., as it was with "Afghan Emirate" under the Taliban.

One might also recall another important circumstance. Our homeland a few hurried to admit defeat in a "strategic counter-play" with the U.S. on the "extended" Now Bolshennom Middle East. America continues to lose it faster than strengthen their globalist position. Many political analysts even in the West have come to the conclusion that the U.S. is not the least, and perhaps even in the ground than our native land, lost there cool war. In the book of Academician Yevgeny Primakov "World Without the Russian Federation?" Expressed concern — whether the results will push the landmark "reset" button. Appropriate and logical place and another clarifying question: Will Our homeland survive the ordeal immediately after the disintegration of globalization or regionalization under the criteria remains uncertain prospects for a "reset" on the prototype close to the Russian Federation as the West and East.

The global economic crisis has stratified the ongoing "global war" against international terrorism. These criteria can be expected not only ideological, and another section of the world in a classic confrontation between East and West. U.S.'re not going to turn away from the ideology of monetary fetishism Baksova under the slogan "God with us", and Muslim radicals will not dissociate itself from militant Islam. Tightly over the land threatened with disintegration and division of the world with the replacement of ideology and morality in today's environment of globalization, which Patriarch Kirill has described as "malicious ecology of the spirit." In any case, the course, so deideologize foreign and defense policy in particular, have apparently adjust with caution, weighing and proschityvaya, what are the likely cause errors in neobmyslennom, and often risky, "partnership" with NATO.

Next to the GME in the North Caucasus republics of the South Caucasus continues to be acutely felt revelry different kinds of extremism and terrorism. Unprecedented levels of crime, corruption, violence and cronyism linked not least, and the spread of international terrorism here.

Specifically, such a relationship is viewed threats at the moment on everything. This provided, of course, the base state at the APEC summit in Singapore that the global crisis has "demonstrated a total interdependence of all global economies, which no one previously expected." This can be attributed to vzaimouyazvimosti state and global security in the criteria increasingly globalized world. The principle of "international legal design of the indivisibility of security in the Euro-Atlantic region and the Asia-Pacific region has, of course, be the same imperative for the entire post-Soviet space of Eurasia.

Question now is not so much about the return of a lost past role Russian superpower, as the approval of in the status of the majestic Eurasian power — such a strong country that will be able to respond to any danger and challenges. RF have something to defend. She is able to not only be a connecting link in the recent East-West dichotomy, and the carrier mirosozidatelnoy mission in a multipolar world.

Russian Mediterra to hazards

As once our homeland, "grow through Siberia" because after the collapse of the Russian Union it has become enlarged grow "Russian world".

New Russian world is already is something more than the government and civilization. This is what distinguishes it from Pah Americana and the modern Jewish world. First claim to the role of a unipolar world hegemon, conductor, Modera globalism. Jewish world also became a role for the axis in world history as the garbage scattered around the world of the Jews.

Our homeland, seeing himself anew as part of the Russian world, can not only resist globalism, and bring real mirosozidatelnuyu goal for all mega-Euro-Afro-Asian countries. On the tremendous space of the former Russian Union of many foreigners, including the Turkish people, and the Jews who accepted Orthodoxy and liken themselves to the Russian world, too.

Russian core of the Russian world — the largest in number in Europe after the collapse of the USSR people, not only decreased in size, and it was the most broken civilization. The former Soviet Union more than 25 million Russian acquired the status of people with no homeland. In the Baltic countries they are called "stateless", precisely, people deprived of their right to be called citizens. It is not only in the depopulation, but also in a number of cases in various Russian overt discrimination. In other countries, the former republics of the USSR, there were Russian natsmenshistva, although, for example, in the Crimea, Donbass and in some other regions of Ukraine, they still constitute a large part of the population that is deprived of the right to use their native Russian language as the second municipality. The same fate may await Russian in Tajikistan and, maybe, just behind that of other countries in Central Asia.

With the growth of the brain drain from Russia and the post-Soviet space, along with depopulation is also their mental impoverishment. Put forward at the time, Alexander Solzhenitsyn calls to save the nations now asks supplement. Conserving our nation involves not so much quantitative as maintaining a high quality of its spiritual and moral enrichment.

In the conditions of globalization, the Russian world may be people who not only understand the Russian language, and enclosed to the multi-faceted, multi-ethnic culture, where for centuries coexisted peoples professing Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and other classic religion. The Russian peace to many, but different from other ordinary diaspora nations — Armenian, Greek, Lebanese, Palestinian, Kurdish and others. He was born not so much external enemies, the invasions of conquerors, but also by internal disasters — revolutions, wars, civilians, mass repression. To a large extent then played the role of spiritual and moral "devastation in the heads" of our fellow citizens. Often and most people abroad pushed out its former homeland as "native country".

After the collapse of the USSR nationals of the Russian Federation shall have the right to consider themselves not only the former Russian citizens of the Russian nationality, and all of the above 25 million Russians in the near abroad and more than million now living in Israel, Russian. They are all in different years have left the Russian Alliance. Of them, as it turns out now, more than 700 thousand can return back to Russia and the CIS countries — had broken out on the GME brand new war. This is not only in the Knesset, Israel's early beating anxiety. "The great exodus" of Israeli emigrants, as it is called Russian Jews in the working direction — back in the diaspora can begin at least some day, both in the region and around Israel really "a whiff of gunpowder."

To the Russian world may refer themselves, many immigrants and their inclusion in the Russian culture members of mixed Russian-Arab families. Not counting the 200 million Arabs who have received higher education, and particularly in the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation, many members of their families consider themselves too "twinned" with Russia. About 290 thousand similar "Russian" living in the current time in Iran. This is the third generation of Iranians who in his time for various reasons, first emigrated from Iran to Russia, and then he returned to his homeland Protz. Many of them believe their own home ground and speak Russian among themselves in Russian. Thousands of families are also in the West, in Europe and America. Such a resu
rgent Russia is now the new world, although not to the same cohesion, can play the role of reliable support for its mission of in the brutal confrontation between globalism. On the first held in December 2009 3rd Global Congress of Russian citizens living abroad, it was noted that their number is seeking about 30 million of them have their communities in more than 80 countries and are face to face with globalism and, as part of common spiritual space of the Russian world, are, in fact, the future provision of modernization of.

Russian neologism "Mediterra", washed with 3 oceans, by analogy with the Mediterranean (Mediterranean), connecting three continents — Europe, Africa and Asia — appeared in the first year after the collapse of the Russian Union. It was then opened the true meaning of this geopolitical metaphor.

The problem of national security of the Russian Federation became very complicated even before the announcement of Washington's "global war on" terror-counterterrorism. Russian "Mediterra" on its territory markedly decreased, ceasing to be a second part of the earth. Almost half were reduced and the overall size of its population and the number of themselves in the new Russian Federation Russian borders. But on the extent of the land borders of our own homeland continues to occupy first place in the world. The length of its coasts as the Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas markedly decreased, as was the total number of its sea gates.

After a significant reduction in production capacity and GDP Our homeland has to be one of the 2-global superpowers. Such geopolitical consequences of the disaster will give a point to know not only on all 3 areas of economic, social and political modernization. This may also apply to the achievement of the priority objectives of the triad made public before the "Strategy" human security of the Russian society and the country.

As can be seen from the results of the APEC summit in Vladivostok, Our homeland together with the development of partnerships in the western sector is increasingly expanding cooperation not only with the countries of the EurAsEC, CSTO, SCO, and the Asia-Pacific region and the BRICS. All this is bound to bring about changes in the geopolitical position of the triune safety of — it is a connecting link between all the mentioned international organizations with which cooperates intensively. The difficulties are compounded by such combination but globalist plans of NATO "long haul" to wage war in the neighborhood of Central Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Greater Middle East. In these criteria the modernization of the economy, policy and strategy should be based on the new values of a three-pronged security strategy Rf.V these criteria would be important to define a special place and role of the Russian Federation to the probable formation as the "anti-globalization triangles" such as RIC — Our homeland, India, China or the BRICS. Role in their Moscow will be defined as a full member of the CSTO and the SCO without probable them to "reformat" in the unit or military-political alliance capable of withstanding degrades the North Atlantic alliance, namely, modern and globalism in general.
