Henry Kissinger: “the Uniqueness of the US is over”

Генри Киссинджер: «Исключительность США закончилась»

Former U.S. Secretary of state Henry Kissinger recently expressed caution, saying that the U.S. is no longer the sole superpower and have to admit that China is an equal opponent.If the US will not be able to find some way of coexisting with China, the result can be catastrophic conflict which will be worse than all the previous world war, he warned.Speaking on 14 November a public statement in new York, a veteran diplomat urged the United States and China together and to mutually resolve their economic friction, adding: “you can no Longer assume that one side can dominate another”.The main remark of Kissinger was the following: “So those countries that were exceptional and unique and must come to terms with the fact that they have a competitor.”In other words, he does not agree with the erroneous General opinion in Washington that the United States has some “exceptional”, “unique power” and the “indispensable nation”. This confidence originates from the 1990s when after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States sees itself as the only superpower. This resulted in a more assertive ideology “of dominance on all fronts”. Hence, the last three decades, the criminal us wars and operations to change regimes across the planet, plunged the whole world into chaos.Experienced statesman, 96-year-old Kissinger, who has a deep insight in the Affairs of international politics, ended his remarks on an optimistic note, saying, “I am confident that the leaders of both parties (USA and China) are aware that the future of the world depends on the development of the two sides of the solutions and overcome the inevitable difficulties.”Became a breakthrough visit of Richard Nixon to China in 1972, I think the idea of Henry Kissinger, who was then national security adviser in the White house.In the same year, the United States and the Soviet Union signed the ABM Treaty, which the us side was also in charge of Kissinger. From the Treaty, the United States withdrew in 2002, which led to the deterioration of bilateral relations between the US and Russia, continuing to this day. Unlike today’s American politicians, Kissinger had a deep historical knowledge and appreciate other cultures.China and Russia in the task of cooperation and partnership in the development of constantly calling for a multipolar world order. But recent governments in the United States refused to consider any other procedure except an alleged their unipolar dominance. Hence, continuing trade disputes with China and postoyannaya the demonization of Washington’s Russia.It’s a recurring ideological mantra of “exceptionalism” the US leads to more tension and eventually to the abyss.Henry Kissinger knows it. It is a pity that the current generation of American politicians and thinkers too tight mind to realize it.
