The last head of state of the former Soviet Union, Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev

The last head of state of the former Soviet Union, Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, has warned the US of an imminent Soviet-like collapse if Washington persists with its hegemonic policies.

Speaking at a Thursday conference on the future of the Middle East and the Black Sea region in the Turkish city of Istanbul, Gorbachev noted that disintegration was the atonement that the former Soviet Union made for its mistakes and the same fate awaits the US if Washington continues to repeat similar blunders.

On 26 December, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the world’s first and largest Communist state, was formally dissolved into fifteen independent republics, marking an end to the Cold War.

He said the Soviet Bolsheviks sought to undermine Islamic values while in power, and noted that during the Cold War era, the world powers used religion as a tool and a weapon.

Gorbachev denounced the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan during the Cold War era as an “unpardonable mistake” and pointed out that the US is now repeating the same mistake.

The United States and its allies launched the war on Afghanistan in 2001 as part of Washington’s so-called war on terror. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but after 11 years, the foreign troops have still not been able to establish security in the country.

    Isn’t it true that the breakup of the United States is really being planned, just as it was with the Soviet Union in 1989?? These things are never the “accidents” or “unforseen” things we’re told they are; they are part of a bigger plan.

    The internationalists planned to unite Canada, Mexico, and the USA into a “North American Union” similar to the EU, but that would be nearly impossible if the US dissolved into separate republics. So it is not probable but dissolution remains a possibility.

    What is probable is federal insolvency as the current federal structure is far too expensive and unaffordable by the American public. It’s like trying to maintain an expensive Ferrarri on a middle class hourly wage. It just isn’t economically feasible even if tax rates were 100% of income.

    The federal government has to shrink in size and power in order to survive. Whether it succeeds or fails, it will have to lose power and cut expenses either way. There are no other alternatives.
