But the majority of experts agree that such behavior rather shows the weakness of the White House than its "might".
And the current US President, who had received the Nobel Peace Prize, has unleashed perhaps the largest number of wars, Director of the Center for public and political research, Vladimir Evseev believes.
"It’s hard to find an American President who was so inconsistent in his foreign policy, as President Barack Obama. He started with a speech in Cairo, where he said that he would build peace with the Muslims. After that, there was Libya and the murder of Muammar Gaddafi. At first, Barack Obama disavowed Egyptian President Mubarak, and then he supported the Muslim Brotherhood. After that, he had to build relationship with the people who had overthrown him /Mubarak/. The same policy has direct relevance to Russia. It was President Barack Obama who initiated a reset in the Russian-American relations, and now he talks about the beginning of the cold war. I think that if the American President can't find a priority in his foreign policy, it suggests that apparently the US cannot be a moral leader, because one should not constantly change one’s guidelines for exactly the opposite."
According to Vladimir Evseev, what the US is doing now is the most serious strategic error. By starting the cold war with Russia, President Barack Obama with his own hands creates a bipolar world. And in such a world there can’t be a single center, though Washington considers itself to be one.
US President Barack Obama considered Russia's actions aimed at settling the military conflict to be an insult, and now he uses the Ukrainian crisis as an occasion to recoup himself, Deputy Editor-in-chief of the Izvestiya newspaper, Boris Mezhuev believes.
“The main reason is that Obama cannot lose. He cannot retreat. I don't think there are any serious parties, certainly not European or even American, who are interested in the cold war. The matter, of course, concerns the political situation. America is afraid of losing not financial, but political credibility; to show that its hegemony is not endless and infinite; that there are serious limitations to this hegemony. And these constraints come from the country, which they have long believed and recently even called a loser."
According to the expert, it is a deadlock situation. America cannot offer a peaceful solution to the crisis in Ukraine, but merely wants to punish those disobedient. And by unleashing the cold war against Russia, it only loses its authority.
Instead of jointly searching for a way out of the situation, Washington is looking for somebody to blame. This leads to the loss of the image of the United States, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, Anwar Makhmutov believes.
"It seems that the initiatives that the United States puts forward regarding the situation around Ukraine do not bring positive results. And they need some new statements, new lists. And frankly speaking, it seems that nobody wants to settle the situation in Ukraine. And the desire to escalate the ongoing processes in Ukraine is growing in the United States. Analyzing all this, we see that apparently the main goal of the United States is to break the recently established rather good relations with Europe."
According to Anwar Makhmutov, in an attempt to preserve its superiority, the US has once again dusted off the old project called the cold war. But in the modern world this will not induce Russia to play by the imposed rules. And it will certainly not add political points to Washington.
