US attempts at global domination are futile – Gorbachev

Mikhail Gorbachev (RIA Novosti / Grigoriy Sisoev)

Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev believes that US attempts to unilaterally rule the world are futile, just as any party which, instead of trying to co-exist with another, struggles to impose global hegemony is doomed to fail.

“We live in a global world, and US attempts to become a ‘lone wolf’ and conduct unilateral operations… they all fail, collapse, but [the US] tries again,” Gorbachev said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV channel, emphasizing that in a similar fashion anyone else’s “attempts to unilaterally control the world would fail.”  

“We should think about how to co-exist in this hard and crazy – yet the sole – world known to a man so far,” Gorbachev added.

Speaking about the current geopolitical situation Gorbachev noted that the international community, particularly the United States, blinded by its “triumph” after the collapse of the Soviet Union, has “failed to make adequate conclusions.”

“So much effort was made to stop the nuclear arms race, the Cold War…we have learned nothing from it. And now there are even talks about war again,” he said.

European countries had a total freedom of choice in terms of what policies to follow, but Americans did their best to “lay their hands on it,” Gorbachev believes.

Earlier, Gorbachev warned Western and Russian leaders against dragging the world into a new Cold War amid the Ukraine crisis. Back in December he said that “there are signs of Cold War” in the recent cooling down of relations between Moscow and Washington. And while Europe must become the locomotive of shaping the new world order to prevent new conflicts, he said it is being pushed in the opposite direction.

US policies, Gorbachev says, are defined by the defense industry which has a heavy influence on the country’s economy, politics, culture and art. “American foreign policies to a great extent are controlled by anything but democratic forces,” he said.

He reiterated his belief that the US needs political and economic reforms similar to ‘Perestroika’ carried out in the Soviet Union during his rule in the 1980s.

On the eve of the 70th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, Gorbachev expressed wishes for Russian people to always be proud of their ancestors and the history of their nation. “A Russian person has reasons for patriotism,” Gorbachev said, adding that anyone who sincerely loves the motherland also loves and engages in everything unfolding there.

“No matter what happens to me, I am not going to flee [Russia], I could have fled, but no, I think it’s the last thing to do,” Gorbachev said.

Russia will mark the 70th anniversary of wartime victory on May 9 with military parades in honor of the holiday being held in cities across the country. More than 78,500 people will take part in the parades and almost 2,000 items of military equipment will be put on display.

  1. Cathleen, excellent article.

    I would only ask that the people be aware of these “code words” in this article: “unilaterally” and “lone wolf”.
    Funny, we all KNOW that the Zionists control this Country called America, so these code words are actually “conditioning phrases” designed to keep Israel “out of the picture”.
    And as for Gorby, he’s a shill for the nwo, so his remarks make even more sense when you realize what the goal is (with these remarks)……and that is to hide Israel’s desire for world dominance. America is just her “military b!tch” that invades those countries who refuse to fall into line.
    Just like the Catholic Church “hides” Passover with Easter, the nwo hides Israel as the true culprit of who’s trying to control the entire world, using the USA to hide behind. There’s more to this, but I’ll let this suffice….for now. But learn the parable of the vineyard, where God gave His creation everything they needed to have a long and fruitful life. But the children of the evil one snuck into the vineyard and took it over, even killing the vineyard owners Son. The vineyard, by the way, represents the world and her resources. “They” (the Zionists) want it ALL. It was called Manifest Destiny not that long ago. Now it’s called Agenda 21, etc, etc, etc. Just like The Inquisition was renamed “Political Correctness.” It’s all the same game, and the Zionist is behind it. Just stating facts.
    Hope you are all having a fantastic Passover.

  2. Love my country. Don’t really like my government. That said, wasn’t the fall of the Egyptian empire a result of trying to fight too many wars at once and not being able to fund them all? And wasn’t a major part of the Roman Empire falling a result of it just being too big?
