Once again, Napoleon's / Hitler's / Bin Laden's nation was an epicenter of a major geopolitical revolution. This climactic revolution marked a dramatic reversal in the momentum of both the 3-year-old world war and the continuing Year 1 revolutionary movement that began Napoleon's / Hitler's / Bin Laden's career.
In 1815, the beginning of the Post-Napoleonic Revolution was marked by the establishment of the new world order of the American Monroe doctrine (officially promulgated years later) and the Concert of Europe. Following the conclusion of the 3-year-old World War of 1812, the victor-nations launched this revolution to reorganize international spheres of influence in a bid at stabilized global governance. In the Middle East, the solidification of the European alliance against the Ottoman Empire initiated an age of perennial Western encroachment in the region that would erode and destroy Ottoman influence by WWI. In a major symbolic milestone for the age-old conflict between the Western and Islamic worlds, the Concert of Europe would soon liberate from Muslim rule the Greece cradle of Western civilization.
Once again, France was an epicenter of a major geopolitical revolution. This climactic revolution marked a dramatic reversal in the momentum of both the 3-year-old world war and the continuing 1789 French revolutionary movement that began Napoleon's career.
In 1945, the beginning of the Post-WWII Revolution was marked by the establishment of the new world order of the United Nations and the Cold War. Following the conclusion of the 3-year-old WWII, the victor-nations launched this revolution to reorganize international spheres of influence in a bid at stabilized global governance led by the two superpowers. In the Middle East, the division of the world into the two Cold War camps combined with the beginning of the post-Holocaust Israel foundation to spread the Post-WWII Revolution throughout the region. This revolution included the 1945 creation of the pivotal American-Saudi alliance, the exchange of U.S. military support in return for cheap Saudi oil that sustained America's petrol-driven empire and helped to precipitate the modern American war against Islamic terrorism. This 1945 regional revolution was also marked the Arab Nationalist Revolution, including 1) the establishment of the League of Arab States, and 2) the beginning of the Baath party's Arab fascist revolution, which would climax half a century later in Saddam Hussein's Iraqi dictatorship.
Once again, Germany was an epicenter of a major geopolitical revolution. This climactic revolution marked a dramatic reversal in the momentum of both the 3-year-old world war and the continuing 1919 German revolutionary movement that began Hitler's career.
In 2005, the beginning of the "Clash of Civilizations" polarization counterrevolution to the American-led Global War on Islamic Terrorism was marked by a broad radicalization of the governments in America, Israel, Russia and throughout the Middle East. After three years of world war, the expansion of a seemingly imperial American war was preempted by the crystallization of an anti-American revolution, signaling the failure of the American public relations war against Al Qaeda, the rise of radical Islamic governments and the public reemergence of Al Qaeda. In the context of America's unfinished 9/11 War and the United Nations' failure to restrain American aggression, this political counterbalance to American military might represented a bid at stabilized global conflict.
In America, this polarization revolution was triggered by the radicalization of American government with the inception of the second Bush term, highlighted by the start of a covert American war against Iran in June of 2005 and the initiation of the Bush Administration's diplomatic prelude to the official start of the Iran war. Also in 2005, the global revelation of the Bush Administration's lies and imperial motives that provoked the Iraq War (including the infamous Downing Street Memos) combined with inception of an Iraqi civil war to cripple America's international reputation. In the context of the American public's election-endorsement of the Bush Administration's blatantly imperial post-9/11 New World Order, the beginning of an even more belligerent American presidential term precipitated America's loss in the public relations war against Al Qaeda.
In Israel, this polarization revolution was triggered by the radicalization of the Israeli government with the inception of Ariel Sharon's "disengagement" policy, marked by the Israeli exodus from Palestinian territories (including a total evacuation from the Gaza Strip and a partial withdrawal from West Bank) in prelude to an expansion of the Israeli war on the Palestinian government and Lebanese Hezbollah.
In Russia, this polarization revolution was triggered by the radicalization of the Russian government in response to the continuation of Bush's anti-Russian presidency, marked by an increase in antagonism towards Russia by the Cold War hawks in White House, including the deployment of the controversial American anti-missile system around Russia and the political opposition to Russian assistance for Iran's nuclear industry. The resultant increased belligerency of the Russian government, including increased usage of oil and gas supplies as an economic weapon and increased development of Russia's nuclear arsenal, threatened a new Cold War and fractured the alliance of the two superpowers in the war against Al Qaeda.
