In Stalin’s time it was clear the Soviet Union was a problem to govern. A constitution was created to devolve power to the regions in acknowledgment of this fact.
As to ruling the world... an impossible quest.
The finger is pointed at China in the West & also at Russia her ally. Everyone is supposed to be afraid... VERY afraid.
@NATO issues warnings every few months or so. The State Department deplores this & that.
Look over there. Danger!
The above sayings have no place in the vocabulary of western elites, least of all the elites of the USA, neocons or otherwise. The drive is for total dominance & to intervene anywhere, anytime & by any means to attain their global goal.
China, Russia, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Nicaragua & anywhere else that is not submitting to US/Western dominance is now a constant target for undermining, destabilizing & where deemed necessary the application of military jackals.
