What is more is that unrest across the ocean was caused not only by the growing might of Russian arms and servicemen, but by the real efficiency of the Russian army, journalist explained.
Ben Hodges, the commander of United States Army forces in Europe, has conjured up common fears that trouble people in the West, saying that he was shocked by Moscow’s ability to deploy their army in the Middle East region in a very short period of time. He was perplexed by this revelation, Soloviev notes.
But if the military is always sparing in the expression of their emotions, the media is not, the publicist pointed out. For instance, an Italian journalist has issued an article entitled “Russians are too strong.” Putting it short, the author has claimed that “bursts of Russian bombs in Syria had hit ordinary Americans with blast waves,” referring to nervous response of launching of Russia’s operation among ordinary Americans. It’s a kind of “psychological bomb,” Soloviev stressed.
However, the loss of “stars-and-stripes prestige,” according to Soloviev, is not the worst thing of all. Americans are more alarmed not with the decreasing of their popularity itself, but with the fact that they had overlooked this process. Washington has joined a game and lost it.
“Americans were watching the Kremlin unwinkingly, while the principal tick was performed in the other place. What is more important is that the US has overlooked the resurrection of a superpower,” he concluded.
