OTRAS VOCES: TRUMP PARECE OCULTAR ALGO QUE LO ATA A PUTIN

Por, Jorge V. Ordenes-Hoy Bolivia

En la cumbre de Helsinki del lunes 16 de julio Trump por alguna razón rindió un culto inusitado y vergonzoso a Putin por razones que se desconocen. Quizá tengan que ver con asuntos de propiedad inmueble en Rusia o en otra parte, o quizá con los entreveros cibernéticos que involucran a los rusos en las elecciones presidenciales de EEUU de 2016 lo que está comprobado por los pliegos de cargo emitidos a varios colaboradores republicanos de la campaña de Trump en 2017, y por el pliego emitido el jueves 12 de julio por el Departamento de Justicia contra doce oficiales rusos acusados en detalle de haber sido responsables de los ataques. El WP dice que Trump ha ido de su “hacer nuevamente grandioso a EEUU,” a “hacer grandiosa a Rusia.” Y su empeño parece enceguecido y hasta apátrida porque ha puesto los intereses de Rusia primero, lo que deja, incluso a gente de su partido, con la boca abierta.

Trump está ayudando a cristalizar el sueño de Putin de hacer de su país un emporio dictatorial como la URSS… y en eso no cesa, aunque no será fácil porque, entre otras cosas, el producto interno bruto de Rusia es más o menos del tamaño del de Texas, y si bien tiene un arsenal nuclear, sus FFAA convencionales ya no son las de la URSS. Obama caracterizó a Rusia como “fuerza regional”… lo que nunca cayó bien a Putin. Pero por alguna razón, Trump, haciendo de “idiota útil” como lo califica la prensa estadounidense, lo trata de igual a igual, como un “un competidor de mi talla”…lo que sí añade “talla” política a Putin en Rusia donde seguramente quisiera ser reconocido como “Vladimir el Grande,” bagaje de inverosimilitudes que deja pasmados a muchos no solamente estadounidenses.

El Secretario General de la OTAN, general Hastings L. Ismay, recientemente dijo que la Organización se había creado “para mantener a la Unión Soviética fuera, a los americanos dentro y a los alemanes abajo” militarmente… lo que 7 décadas después se ha logrado con los alemanes elevados económicamente, con el mundo que hasta la llegada de Trump había comerciado cada vez más y mejor, y con la ciencia alcanzando lo impensado. Pese a esto Trump, entre otras cosas, duda de que la OTAN sirva… lo que resulta inverosímil sobre todo cuando el lunes, en Helsinki, se sometió al zafarrancho sicológico de Putin que lo demolió hasta el punto de hacerlo aceptar increíblemente la idea prepotente del ruso de someter el pliego de cargos contra los oficiales rusos nada menos que ¡al escrutinio de investigadores rusos! de modo que se determine ¡la calidad de los cargos! Grotesco y hasta traicionero a la patria.

Occidente hasta ahora ha sobrellevado las embestidas de Trump y, pese a la confusión del Brexit, y a las dificultades de gobernabilidad de los líderes alemanes, de los italianos y españoles, la UE se va percatando de que “la unión hace la fuerza,” y que unirse mejor deber ser prioritario ahora que la mayoría de las economías europeas se recuperan, y que el presidente E. Macron alienta el cometido de una Europa unida pese a Trump y sus inquietudes ahistóricas e incluso aberrantes. El Pentágono por su lado, por lo menos hasta el momento, ha continuado la política del presidente Obama de reforzar militarmente a la OTAN en los países del mar Báltico y Polonia. Antes de la reunión de la OTAN de la semana pasada, el otro yo de Trump había dicho que garantizaría la integridad territorial de los países del Báltico, Noruega y Dinamarca. Veremos.

  1. Estupedo texto.

  2. No, tene ni idea este sr. Se traga todo lo de CNN. Podria explicar eln detalle el por qué del intento de acercamiento a Rusia claro está con los ojos abiertos pero…….,discutir con desinformados es perder el tiempo.
    Solo meditar esto: el enemigo de mi enemigo es mi amigo. Asi se hacen las alianzas entre rivales que siguen siendo rivales aunque por conveniencia cooperen en algunas cosas. Rusia es rival y mantenerla como tal en vez de enemigo es proyecto inteligente. Rusia con territorio enorme rodeada de enemigos que lo son aunque sonrian necesita paz con los U.S. como el comer. 120millones de rusos etnicos viven contiguos a 1.1 billones de chinos y otro tanto de islamistas en diversos países. Y Rusia tiene una tasa de crecimienro poblacional, negativa. Sobrevive por sus nukes.
    Putin hombre de cuidado pero inteligente lo sabe y las circiunstancias hacen posible algun arreglo puntual. Insultarlo recordándole su pasado no resuelve nada. Asi,es la llamada “ real politik”. Desagradable por los interlocutores y los arreglos pero asi es..

  3. Un buen analisis en ingles: Judge Andrew Napolitano: Trump knows more about dealing with bad guys than Congress, hysterical media combined

    Andrew Napolitano
    By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano | Fox News

    Trump appears to contradict DNI Dan Coats’ assessment of ongoing efforts by Russia to interfere in U.S. elections; Peter Doocy reports from the White House.
    As a trial judge in New Jersey during the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush years, I spent much of my time trying to settle cases. This process involved bringing into my chambers the lawyers for the disputants and asking them in the absence of their adversaries to lay their cards on the table.
    After I found out what the litigants truly wanted and I did some pushing and shoving and jawboning, more often than not, agreements were reached. The threat of an imminent jury trial — with its expenses, complexities and uncertainties — was often enough to bring the parties to a quick, sensible and relatively inexpensive resolution. Occasionally, flattery — even fatuous flattery — helped.
    All trial judges in America are familiar with this process. It takes place in criminal, as well as civil, cases in every courthouse in the country nearly every day.
    But it takes place in secret. I could not imagine announcing to the public the state of the negotiations or my opinions of any of the negotiators midstream. If compelled by some arcane custom to do so, I’d have praised the unpraiseworthy — to help bring about a favorable result.
    I was reminded of all this earlier in the week as I watched the politically unpopular performance of President Donald Trump at an internationally televised — and now much-analyzed — joint news conference he held with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
    It appears that because he did not utter anything like President Reagan’s “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,” referring to the Berlin Wall, or “trust but verify,” referring to U.S.-Soviet nuclear arms treaties and because he gave public credence to Putin’s private and incredulous denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, he somehow came across as weak or insufficiently American.
    At this writing, no nationally known Republican officeholder except Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has come publicly to the president’s defense. Some in the Democratic Party and some of my colleagues in the media have even accused Trump of treason. How misunderstanding they are.
    Here is the back story.
    For 18 months, Trump has sought to develop a personal relationship with Putin unlike any relationship that any modern American president has had with him or his predecessors. The Democrats and Republican never-Trumpers doubt Trump’s bona fides and even his intellect. “Who could cut a deal with a monster?” they have bellowed.
    Make no mistake; Putin is a monster. He has invaded Ukraine, bombed rebels in Syria, shored up fanatics in Iran, imprisoned political opponents on false charges and stolen billions from Russian oligarchs and the Russian people.
    To this litany of criminality, Trump has wisely asked: How have any of his monstrosities harmed the United States? Answer: None of this is morally sound, and all of it is profoundly unlawful, but none of it has harmed us.
    This realization has led Trump — in defiance of the advice from his own secretary of state, CIA director and national security adviser — to try to understand Putin and to negotiate with him.
    There is much to negotiate about. We want the Russians to stay out of our computers and away from our elections. We want them to stop trying to reorganize the Middle East. And we want them to reduce their nuclear and long-range offensive weaponry. Of course, they want the same from us.
    I don’t know whether Putin can be reasoned with. But I believe that if anyone can do it, Donald Trump can. This is what made me think this past week of all those litigations I helped to resolve. Negotiations are often fluid. They take time and patience, as well as threats and flattery, and they cannot be successful under a microscope.
    Stated differently, Trump knows how to negotiate, and his skills cannot be assessed midstream — because midstream is often muddy and muddled. Trump’s efforts this week were just a beginning. His public praise of Putin and giving moral equivalence to Putin and our intelligence services were not to state truths but to influence Putin’s thinking in order to bend Putin’s will — eventually — to his own.
    But the neocons in Congress will have none of this. The power of American arms-makers is formidable and profound. They have acolytes in all branches of the federal government. They depend on the threats of foreign governments to animate taxpayer funding of their armaments.
    They know that Russia is the only threat in Europe, and they fear that if President Trump reaches a meaningful rapprochement with President Putin, there will result a diminished American appetite for their weaponry.
    And they know that Donald Trump understands that.
    So they have jumped on a fluid long-term negotiation at its inception by mocking the president’s flattery. They would have mocked Franklin Roosevelt for calling monstrous Soviet dictator Josef Stalin “Uncle Joe” as he bent him to his will.
    Where does this leave us? We have impatient media that hate the president, a bipartisan majority in Congress beholden to the military-industrial complex, and a president who knows more about negotiating with bad guys than any of them.
    And unlike the warmongers, the president is willing to talk to anyone if there is a chance it could result in peace. President Lyndon B. Johnson often remarked that there are two things in life you never want to watch being made and only want to see when completed: legislation and sausages. We should add international peace to that short list.

  4. Muy interesante y acertado comentario el de este juez
    Ciertamente lo que importa son los logros diplomaticos reales
    Pero no es menos cierto que Trump se ahorraria muchos raviolis innecesarios y gobernaria mas fluidamente Si cuidara mejor Su lenguaje y actitudes
