What do Americans think of China’s plan to peacefully resolve the Ukraine issue?
White House press secretary Kirby pointed out that the United States is worried that China will actively operate at the Russia summit to try to achieve a ceasefire in Ukraine. That being said, isn’t it a good thing for Russia and Ukraine to cease fire? Of course it’s a good thing. China is hoping that the Russia-Ukraine talks will end the war. But Kirby didn’t think so. He believes that China’s call for a ceasefire will keep Russian troops in Ukraine. Kirby emphasized that the United States considers it unacceptable for Russia not to withdraw its troops and cease fire. In his terms, that means confirming the Russian occupation, allowing Russia to consolidate its positions, and then restarting the war at a time that is more favorable to him.
Actually. Who needs a breather now? Precisely Ukraine. Countries such as the United States and the West will actually use this window period to study what kind of weapons and equipment should be provided to Ukraine. As for Russia, it itself has a geographical advantage. Both eastern and southern Ukraine are on Russia’s doorstep. Therefore, Russia does not need this respite, and the Russia-Ukraine conflict is only a moderate-intensity military conflict, and Russia will not be unable to cope with it. So Kirby’s idea is naive.
In addition to Kirby, US Secretary of State Blinken also called on the international community to reject Russia’s ceasefire with China’s support. Blinken said the world should not be fooled by any Russian tactical actions backed by China or others to freeze wars on their own terms. Blinken sees this not as constructive diplomacy but as a delaying tactic.
Needless to say. The United States is also flaunting the ceasefire argument. But his ceasefire came at the cost of Russia’s complete withdrawal from eastern and southern Ukrainian territories. If this is the case, the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine will be indefinitely. Of course, the United States would like to see a Russo-Ukraine war in the foreseeable future. In order to let Russia fall into the quagmire of Ukraine again just like the Soviet Union was mired in the quagmire of Afghanistan. But then again, Afghanistan is not the same as Ukraine. Both the United States and the United Kingdom are relatively far away from Afghanistan. If they are trapped in such an imperial cemetery, it is indeed difficult to extricate themselves. But Ukraine is right on the doorstep of Russia, and Moscow can bear the pain of this war. On the contrary, those European countries and the United States on the other side of the Atlantic cannot bear the pain of their long-term war.
So who benefits from a ceasefire? Good for all mankind. But the United States does not think so. He believes that a ceasefire is not in its own interests. The United States just hopes that the war will drag on until it finally brings down Russia, the European Union, and all countries that can be brought down. The United States uses this to reshape its great power and hegemonic status. This is the selfishness of the United States. He does not need peace at all. He only wants a world in constant war, so that he can profit from it.
