Journal: Washington has adopted the Wolfowitz principle since 1992 to maintain its hegemony in the world.

The National Interest magazine reported that the United States, in an attempt to maintain its dominance on the world stage after the collapse of the Soviet Union, pushed Russia into action in Ukraine.

And according to magazine, The United States is waging a proxy war to maintain and strengthen hegemony, using the so-called 1992 Wolfowitz Doctrine.

The Wolfowitz Doctrine, named after then Undersecretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, was leaked to The New York Times in 1992.

The essence of this policy (the Wolfowitz doctrine) is to assert America’s superiority at any cost in the post-Soviet world and to eliminate competitors, wherever they may be or exist. In addition, the US leadership makes defense agreements the cornerstone of its policy and, through the treaties, inadvertently monopolizes the global arms trade. This will prevent the Allies from developing their own defense systems and increase dependence on American equipment.

The magazine pointed out that, despite the promises made to Gorbachev not to expand NATO to the east, the US sought to gain a privileged position. This explains the accession of the former Warsaw Pact countries to NATO and the constant attempts by the United States to “sit out” in Russia’s backyard.

The magazine adds that America’s stance on not granting Russia a decent parity status angered the Russian leadership, and, in its opinion, the US does not intend to work with Russia responsibly and respectfully. After all, Moscow hinted that Washington was only doing what it had planned in 1992 to impose its will on the world and eliminate competitors wherever they appeared.

The magazine believes that the Russian special operation is a means to prove to the West that the Wolfowitz Doctrine will not be able to move forward with respect to Russia.
