With each passing day the unseemly and essentially provocative role played by the West, especially the United States, becomes more evident in the events taking place in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin described that as a coup d'etat and the armed seizure of power. Ukrainian Maydan is sure to make the leaders of many former Soviet Union countries wonder whether Western arbiters of the world will prepare the same fate for them.
After all, how many examples we have already seen in the last two decades of how Washington and its allies did not shun anything to install a docile regime and shift the unwanted leaders in their area of interest. If it could not be done by the hands of opposition created and armed by them, with the help of so-called "velvet" or "orange" revolutions, the course went direct into an armed interference - intervention.
Forcible removal of Slobodan Milosevic in 1999 was successfully used in Yugoslavia subjected to a devastating bombing. And after 4 years Washington and London under false pretenses (search for weapons of mass destruction) went to war against Iraq ending by the occupation of this country and the execution of Saddam Hussein.
But once he was a friend to Washington which actively helped him and supplied him with weapons in the war with Iran in the late 70s - early 80s. But as soon as the president of Iraq at some point started to show obstinacy and disobedience, he turned into a ferocious enemy which of course should be destroyed.
The same fate befell the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. In February 2011, the armed conflict between government forces and opposition groups inflamed in this country. Based on unproven use of aircraft for repression of peaceful protests in late February the UN Security Council adopted a resolution to impose sanctions against the official government of Libya.
Under the new resolution adopted in March it was suggested to establish a no-fly zone in the skies over Libya, and only. But NATO countries began bombing government troops and facilities in the country. Officially the war ended with the killing of Gaddafi in October 2011.
For three decades the White House was very favorably inclined to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, but at some point he did not please them with something. Then he was swept away by a sudden revolution, was under a court, in prison. However he was released to freedom. They decided he was too old and let him survive his remaining days at home. There is no Washington friends, there was none and could not be. And if it caress someone - then be careful, go to the fairway.
There are no friends but permanent interests. And for the sake of them Washington can even make friends with outspoken terrorists such as Osama bin Laden or the Taliban. With their help overseas politicians once defended their interests in Afghanistan. And then the way-roads of the "friends" parted. As a result Bin Laden was "zeroed" and the fighting with the Taliban is still ongoing. The U.S. is reaping the fruits of its own policy - it's a dangerous animal they nurtured.
And the events of the day - Kiev Maydan. History repeated itself as on vellum. West easily betrayed the legitimate President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych taking the side of rampaging Nazi wing radicals. If you do not sign an association agreement with the European Union then you will receive that! Moreover, Yanukovych was betrayed twice.
The first time that was when he suddenly decided to postpone the process of association with the EU to once again reflect on its consequences, and the second - when France, Germany and Poland become guarantors of the agreement signed with opposition on the settlement of the political crisis in Ukraine, and then immediately forgot about it and turned a blind eye to the atrocities that Evromaydan militants did. The accepted the newfound power concocted by armed bandits.
Since the fall of USSR the US never stopped trying to grab a hold in the former soviet republics, by forming regimes that correspond to their needs. Most activity can be seen in Transcaucasia. But today only Georgia, thanks to Shevarnadze and mostly Saakashvili, holds its course for western integration, by aiming to become part of EU and NATO.
Unfortunately, Washington isn't dealing well with Azerbaijan and Armenia. It almost seemed that the West supported Azerbaijan's president, Ilham Aliev, but lately their attitude toward him changed – for the Baku's leader is too weary and he doesn't want to ruin his relationship with Russia, reconing, it seems, his fathers precepts and the years of studying in Moscow. On that condition it's hard for him to count on Western favours. And there, more and more often news headlines read "West doesn't need Aliev anymore" or "US flushes Aliev". It came to a situation when the head of Azerbaijan had to tell Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, during her visit to "stay out of Azerbaijan's affairs".
It goes without saying that Serge Sargsjan is completely inconvinient for the western politicians. His policy is Russia-oriented, and completely suits his nations interests. Furthermore, Yerevan is firm in it's decision to become part of the Customs Union. Sargsjan is more and more often being critisized in the West, and even threatened by penal disclosure. Just this January Angeles Weekly posted something concerning Sargsjan in relation to "narcotrafficing and jewelery frauds" and also "participating in international intrigues". Armenian National Assembly's vice-speaker Edward Sharmazanov calling it "complete nonsense and absurd, not needing any comments". Nevertheless the assault on Sargsjan had just started, and is bound to continue.
Meanwhile, Washington hasn't achieved any success in the former Soviet republics of Central Asia despite all its efforts to spread influence over these countries. American influence is not welcomed there. Moreover, during the recent international economic forum in Astana Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev proposed the international community to abandon the dollar as the international reserve currency and suggested that a new supranational currency to replace it, pointing out that the dollar is "de jure an illegitimate international means of payment" (which is not backed by gold equivalent all together).
According to Nazarbaev, America's acting as a world currency issuer is undemocratic and provides Washington with non-competitive advantages. The U.S. consumes about 40% of world GDP while it produces a much smaller amount. "With the help of the printing press and the uncontrolled emission Washington is covering the difference" - explained Nazarbaev. His speech that was immediately called "an attack on the dollar" caused a genuine rage in Washington, which means that there will be attempts to discredit or, if possible, remove the politician which enjoys popular love at home and respect in the CIS countries and the world community as well.
However, in case of dire need, Washington can resort to other, more severe or just criminal methods. It is known, that the U.S. intelligence agencies have organized three attempts of assassination of the Belorussian President Alexander Lukashenko. They attempted poisoning him as well as eliminating by explosion, which took place in Minsk in 2008. Fortunately, he got away safely so far, but nobody knows what the CIA with its "long hands" will come up with. That's why Lukashenko, all other CIS leaders and other politicians should be alert. The events in Ukraine and the fate of Viktor Yanoukovych is another lesson for all of them.
