Dr John J Mearsheimer<<< is a professor of political science and international relations at Chicago University. He’s been receiving a lot of press lately. He blames Vlad Putin’s<<< invasion of Ukraine on US policy and President Biden. He believes it is natural for Russia to attack it’s nearest neighbors who want to align themselves with the west. He doesn’t address the start of the hostilities were in 2014 when Ukraine ousted then President Viktor Yanukovich<<<.
Mearsheimer is best known for developing the theory of offensive realism, which describes the interaction between great powers as being primarily driven by the rational desire to achieve regional hegemony in an anarchic international system. In accordance with his theory, Mearsheimer believes that China’s growing power will likely bring it into conflict with the United States. In The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, Mearsheimer argues that the Israeli lobby wields disproportionate influence over US foreign policy. – WIkipedia
To break this down Mearsheimer believes the international community is one of Anarchy and that it must change; ie a New World Order. Saying China will come into conflict with the US is like saying the sky is blue. Criticizing the Israeli and US alliance is confirmation the New World Order he envisions is one that will not include Jews.
Mearsheimer has stated that the real threat to the world in the Middle East is Saudi Arabia not Iran (Mehr News Agency). He also tells us Israel and Saudi Arabia, two US allies, are the sources of terrorism. Who’s side is this clown on? It should be obvious Mearsheimer and Putin are taking directives from the same source.
