Failed Diplomacy

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The innocence of the bye-gone era of 60 years ago is now almost impossible to renew. To this day we have yet to comprehend or even contemplate what was already happening to our world.  The untold truths of what has become of our world have transformed the concepts that were instilled in our education of our youth. In the days of my youth, we never thought that the world would turn out with so much imbalance, hate and violence that we are seeing today. We were always led to believe our government would somehow find ways to intercede to move society in the direction of peace and harmony. Yet today the world is fast moving in an entirely different direction. One that is far removed from the hopes and dreams for millions around the world.

We are realizing what the United States and the crisis in Ukraine is doing to that future. A future we’d thought would be more amicable to the temperaments of a more civil and stable world. But with the latest State of the Union message the Biden Administration as in past State of the Union messages failed once again to emphasize the harsh cold realities of what is actually occurring through-out the US. The nation today is a far cry away from the picture that so many paint when it comes to the political theater that has always been played. The ramifications of failed economic domestic policies as well as international directives through the years have unleashed the tempests we face now. 

True to form the gloss over of the current crisis facing millions of Americans has only continued. This when so many tangible and interconnecting contingencies have overwhelmed so many. Now, and yet again our government’s failure to understand what triggered the crisis in the Ukraine has unleashed drastic implications through-out the whole world. 

The consequences of not really considering both Ukraine and Russia’s economic and financial situations has now propelled both countries in conflict with each other. And now when the US follows in accord with the European Union, NATO and the United Nations with joint resolutions sanctioning Russia as being the antagonist is a dangerous and shortsighted attempt to justify what is actually the posturing of Ukraine in a willful act of forcing more confrontation.

There are many points to consider but unfortunately, we have always assumed Russia as being the instigator in any attempt to secure their own future stability. And in some cases that may hold water. But today that is not the case. 

When we should have considered from Russia’s point of view, where we already assumed Russia as the perpetrator we didn’t. It was back in early 2021 when Ukraine’s president unilaterally shut down pro Russia TV channels and froze businessman Viktor Medvedchuk’s financial assets. These two acts concerned the future of Russia’s financial stability. Regardless of what we have already heard in the US freezing of financial accounts always does have adverse effects to both the individuals included but has a greater impact on all the other contingencies that always follow such actions. The result being that Russia interpreted these actions as Zelenskvv’s government leaning toward the western alliances and not as a truly independent nation.  

The assumption that Ukraine and many of the other European nations are energy independent is false. The Russian economy thrives on its oil and gas exports to which the US has now relied on also. Now considering the Ukraine’s position toward asserting more Western ties while still dependent on Russia’s energy sources is a paradox that wasn’t even considered in the reactions the US, NATO, and the rest of the European Union has taken. 

When President Putin sent in military forces into known regions in Ukraine that have shown no allegiance toward both countries was never considered either in the reactions from the West.  Ukraine has now used these contingencies as motivation to continue escalating this crisis that has now threatened the entire European continent. All the while the US has failed again to understand not only the rational of President Putin and why he is willing to push the envelope sort of speaking to assure Russia’s economic stability. Least we forge the United States has pushed the envelope in doing similar actions in the past. 

We have now entered a quandary when Ukraine’s strategic goal is becoming a member of NATO and the European Union. Yet all the West is doing with the sanctions against Russia and the military buildup in support of Ukraine just adds to the antagonistic approach Ukraine and the West are doing. 

The United States must realize that when two nations remain focused on their own resolve where one is the aggressor there has to be concessions made by both countries. The objective now is to negotiate and broker those concessions that are amicable for both Ukraine and Russa. We must realize that the US foreign policy ever since the end of World War II has been one failure after another. We created either inadvertently or not much destabilization in other countries to the point that our own credibility is in question. Now when we Alline ourselves as staunch supporters of retaliation against an aggressor nation without even considering why Russia initially pursued a military response to substantially secure their economic and financial stability has only exasperated this growing crisis.

The United States must make every effort to secure resolutions to end what is travesty on humanity. To do this is to not only listen to Russia’s objectives but try to negotiate between Ukraine to accept some if not all these following requirements. To felicitate the end of Russian forces occupation Ukraine needs to recognize Crimea and Sevastopol as Russian territory, a renouncement of plans to join NATO, demilitarization of the country and negotiation of the situation in Donbas. When the Secretary of State has recently stated the US and the West are willingly ready to push the envelope further in pursuit of more armed conflict in retaliation is the wrong move. All the US and the West are doing is escalating what is amounting to be a Global catastrophe that can be stopped.
