Mikhail Gorbachev and George H. W. Bush during the signing of the start-1 Treaty.
MOSCOW, Nov 8 — the Economic success of Donald trump may result in the decline of a superpower and to repeat the fate of the failed policies of Mikhail Gorbachev, which led to the collapse of the Soviet Union, writes columnist for Asia Times, Raja Murphy.
According to the journalist, economic policy trump leads USA miss world leadership. The President of the United States puts on other countries such conditions, from which they can easily unsubscribe.
The latest confirmation of this fact was the willingness of several countries to challenge the US decision to impose sanctions on Iran, which has been called “unilateral and illegal”. The state Department hastened to allow these countries to buy Iranian oil, however, according to Murphy, this is comparable to “waving a green flag after a runaway train”.
