The Ukraine crisis arose when the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) expanded eastward, especially to Ukraine, which is adjacent to Russia, hunting down Putin Russia. This cannot be denied. However, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which was organized by China and Russia in response to the US ambition to conquer Eurasia, is expanding as an anti-American alliance. Note We must not overlook the aspect that this is cornering the United States and Europe. The population of the eight current member countries is 40% of the world, the gross domestic product (GDP) is 20% of the world, and the area is 60% of the Eurasian continent. The Charter stipulates comprehensive military, political, economic and trade, science and technology, and cultural cooperation, and joint military exercises are held annually by member countries. In addition, In addition, more than 16 countries are moving to apply for membership one after another, and there are signs that an avalanche phenomenon is likely to occur. The sole hegemony of the United States collapsed and became a major threat to NATO. This is why the United States, Britain and NATO member countries are rushing to overthrow the current regime of China and Russia, advocating the battle of "liberalism vs. tyranny". This another perspective is essential for the Ukrainian crisis.
Note: Please refer to the article "Putin's cornered Brzezinski concept: Ukraine crisis and US conquest of Eurasia" published on March 3, 2022.
November 10, 2021 prior to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The 20th Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) was held online. "The SCO continues to accept new member states, and 16 countries are currently submitting membership applications," said Russia's SCO Special Secretary-General. This should have had a considerable impact on Washington.
Five countries, China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan, which gathered in Shanghai in 1996, organized the "Shanghai 5 Five", and in 2001 Uzbekistan joined and the SCO was established by six countries. India and Pakistan joined in 2015, and the number of member countries has increased to eight. Iran, which is hostile to the United States, has become the ninth member of the country. In addition, Afghanistan, Belarus and Mongol are quasi-members, and six countries, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Cambodia, Nepal, Turkey and Sri Lanka, are preparing to join as dialogue partners. Furthermore, Israel, Bahrain, Qatar, Syria, etc. in the Middle East also want to join, Turkey, which has been refused to join the European Union (EU), has moved to join, and the member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are also following Cambodia.
In addition, the so-called "G77 Plus China" made in Latin America, which has many anti-American governments, and African countries, which are pro-China, expects SCO to develop into another global United Nations. In other words, SCO will become a force to counter NATO led by the United States and Europe. The reason why the avalanche phenomenon is one step closer is that more and more countries are not afraid to join a China-Russia-led organization at the symmetry point of US and European powers based on the judgment that US hegemony is declining. There is no doubt that it is.
By the way, in the adoption of the resolution condemning Russia at the emergency special session of the United Nations General Assembly on March 2, there were 141 countries in favor and 52 countries in disagreement. In terms of population ratio, 42% were in favor and 58% were in disagreement. Looking at the EU as a single country, there are 10 G20 countries that have implemented economic sanctions against Russia and those that have not. Only four countries, the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia, left when the Russian representative spoke at the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors' Meeting on April 20.
In this way, the impatience of Washington, which the Western press never conveys, can be seen through. This is why China and Russia are treated as badly as possible by taking every possible measure and attacking the regime as a tyranny that the West will never accept.
The United States and Europe are being cornered by China and Russia.
The Biden administration, which is trying to break down such an "anti-American alliance," has created a new security framework "AUKUS" by the three countries of the United States, Britain and Australia in order to counter the expansion of China's power. Furthermore, the cooperation framework "Quad" of the four countries of Japan, the United States, Australia and India, and the confidential information sharing framework "Five Eyes" by the Anglo-Saxon alliance of the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand are eager to strengthen.
Under these circumstances, Japan, which is at the forefront of China and Russia, has dramatically improved Japan's existence value and usability for the United States and NATO, and Japan is being further incorporated into the US strategy. After Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the visits of the US President, EU leaders and German Prime Minister to Japan, and the constant visits of Japanese government leaders such as the G7 meeting to Europe are the manifestations of this. This gives many Japanese people the illusion that "Japan is shining in the center of the world."
Once again, I quote the words that John Dulles, who is considered to be the "creator" of the Japan-US Security Treaty, recalled after the conclusion of the San Francisco Peace Treaty, as a commandment.
"Although it was reformed by the occupation, I doubted that I could trust the Japanese who had a fierce war until 6 to 7 years ago. Behind the negotiations with the United States, a communist but Asian of the same yellow race. I suspected that it might be connected to the People's Republic of China. The Japanese often had a sense of superiority over other Asian countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom of the "Elite Anglo-Saxon Club." We should use the fulfillment of our longing to join the Western camp against the communist nations to hold back our loyalty to the Western camp. The Japan-US Security Alliance, which re-arms Japan and incorporates it into its western camp, while the dilemma of not being able to trust the Japanese, is to permanently subordinate Japan to the United States. It was solved by building. (John W. Dower, War without mercy, Pantheon Books, 1986)
