Leo Panitch's Left Social Democrat Views verses Democracy and Class Struggle views on Russia US Realignment
Democracy and Class Struggle has made it clear the dynamic's of Geo-Politics under Trump which we have called the Kissinger Moment of breaking up the strategic alliance of Russia with Iran and China with tactical promise of US Russia alliance which ultimately US will renege on - just as US reneged on promise to stop NATO eastern expansion decades before.
Leo Panitch a Left Social Democrat on Russia sees only one side of the contradiction on the right on with Russia - the global right is divided on Russia they are not all Putin loyalists.
We need to study these contradictions on the right and exploit them for new revolutionary socialist politics to emerge.
The question of Geo Political Crisis with Iran does not just depend on personality of Trump - Israel has a card to play and we know what Netanyahu is capable of.
Iran will be pro active with a sophisticated foreign policy and may create a new Middle East dynamic with a Trump being outdistanced and outsmarted even if it does lead to imperialists attacks on Iran in short term - the geo political results could be expulsion of US from Middle East so feared by Zibigniew Brzezinski.
China will not allow Taiwan to be played as a card in some Trump deal and is capable of incorporating Taiwan into China by force - it will be China's last resort and if it happens will create a new dynamic in global and not just US relations with further isolation of US and not China.
We see Trump as a global danger but if contradictions are handled correctly it can accelerate decline of US Imperialist Power and increased isolation of US in global politics.
These internal and global contradictions arising from Trump Administration can also open up space for renewal of Socialist Revolution in 21st Century.
Now the reason the enlightened prince and the wise general conquer the enemy whenever they move and their achievements surpass those of ordinary men is foreknowledge. Sun Tzu
