A significant shift in the geopolitics

The United States has been a long-standing global superpower, playing a significant role in shaping international relations and influencing global policies. However, recent events have led to the US facing isolation politically, as some of its traditional allies are exploring alternate alliances and partnerships.

As a matter of fact, it was US policies, which turn counterproductive. Although President Trump announce the “America First” policy publically because he was straight forward and bold person. But, in fact, this was American Policy for a long. The term was coined by President Woodrow Wilson in his 1916 campaign that pledged to keep America neutral in World War I. Since then, undeclared policy, all Administrations followed the same policy and Americans protected their interests at the cost of other nations.

Henry Kissinger once said, “To be an enemy of the US is dangerous, but to be a friend is fatal”. Because the US is not fair or sincere even with its friends. Gradually, people learned American hypocrisy and now are trying to find other alternatives.

For instance, the emergence of BRICS Plus (a grouping of emerging economies that includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has presented a challenge to the US-led world order. There are 19 countries who are seeking BRICS membership and many more are shy to announce. Some of them were traditional allies of the US, but, reached the conclusion that the Americans are not sincere friends and they should not trust the US. Similarly, the expansion of SCO is demanded by many nations and will be realized in the very near future. 

These alliances have gained momentum in recent years, with member nations collaborating on various economic, political, and security issues. Because of the mistreatment of the US and lack of trust. It is also known that when you have American Friends, you do not need enemies. Because under the umbrella of friendship, they are harming you all the time. Although it took decades to understand American nature, is never too late, if appropriate measures are taken.

While this trend may seem concerning at first glance, it is essential to recognize that it is part of a broader shift in global power dynamics. As new economies emerge and traditional alliances evolve, it is only natural for nations to explore new partnerships that align with their interests and priorities.

De-dollarization, de-linking Petro-Dollar, will end Dollar hegemony and US influence on the global economy. The US was exploiting the natural resources of the Muslim world, like Oil and Gas, but, betrayed them. Especially, after the engineered dram of 9/aa in 2002, a Crusade was announced by President Bush, and the Muslim world was destroyed systematically. Millions of Muslims were killed, injured, disabled, made homeless, and forced to flee to other countries or take shelter at refugee camps. Arab, spring, Iraq War, Libyan War, Syrian War, Afghan War, Yemen War, Sudan attacks, Egypt unrest, etc., all were part of the Crusade.

Pakistan is the worst victim of American friendship. For Seven decades, Pakistan fought American wars and protected American interests in the entire region. It has sacrificed around 80,000 precious lives of its citizens, including Soldiers and civilians, Economic loss worth Billions of US dollars, and the gift of terrorism and drugs were additional. The current political and economic crisis is a reward for Pakistan in return for its loyalty and sincerity of friendship with the US.

Defense and security alliances with China and Russia will also end the US military hegemony. Politically and diplomatically, the US has already lost its supremacy. In recent voting at the UN General Assembly, it happen many times, the US-raised resolutions were badly defeated and rejected by the vast majority. Like the US-backed resolutions for shifting the Israeli Capital from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem were rejected, even close allies of the US have voted against the resolution or stayed abstained.

Chinese President Xi, while leaving Russia after completing his visit, said that Russia and China will be driving changes that were never witnessed in centuries. It is true, that China and Russia jointly can reshape geopolitics. President Xi has introduced the concept of a “shared Future” for all humankind and proposed Global Security Initiatives, all are right steps in the right direction, and the future of the world order will be determined by China-Russia, not by the US.
