The Wolfowitz doctrine is the basis of US policy toward Russia (and China). The doctrine regards any power sufficiently strong to remain independent of Washington’s influence to be “hostile.” The doctrine states:Live Leak: Italian merc. in Ukraine
“Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.”

The US is a pseudodemocracy in which the media and state educational system ensure that at least half of the population believe and vote for, whatever the elite want them to believe and vote for. It's rule of the stupids in the interests of the corrupt.
