Ruslan Aysin: ''Trump realises that empire exists upon condition of permanent expansion, press and dictates''
Dzhemal’s follower: what did not exist under Obama and what country Trump’s Tomahawk missiles can strike next
American Tomahawk missiles in Syria and the ultimatums of U.S. State Secretary Rex Tillerson have made the Russian establishment to rethink their expectations of Donald Trump. A number of columnists of Realnoe Vremya spoke about a sharp decline in Trump mania in Russia. While the negotiations are underway behind closed doors of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with his U.S. counterpart, a political analyst Ruslan Aysin also decided not to stand aside of the issue. In the newspaper column written specially for our online newspaper, a follower of Geydar Dzhemal reflects upon what is the true face hidden under the mask of President of the United States and in what part of the world one can expect strikes of the ''American democratizer''.
Counter to Hillary
After President Trump gave the command to bomb the military airfield in Syria controlled by the Assad regime we saw a blow to political hopes. Russian leadership, who hoped for a normalisation of relations with Washington, was first to feel it.
Amazingly, how Moscow praised ''dear friend Donald'' right and left, giving him a full carriage of allowances. Yes, during the election campaign Trump talked about the need for resumption of relations with Putin. But we must understand that his rhetoric was built ''counter to Hillary''. It means that he made statements that semantically were the antithesis of statements of the former first lady. A classic of the genre, when your opponent says ''white'' and you should answer ''black''.
But, speaking of which, it's not just about peculiarities of the political strategy approach. Hillary Clinton represents a variant of the world liberalism. She is tied with the structures of supranational bureaucracy. While Donald Trump is a classic representative of the national bureaucracy, national liberal, nationalist and isolationist. In a wide range, the ambitiousness of the new U.S. president takes place before the idea of the emperor at the head of the empire. The fact that the United States is supraempire won't raise any doubts of anybody. But an empire without an emperor looks defective.

There is no doubt that Trump fancies himself a new Caesar. His personal ambitions and political aspirations are above the interests of the state and of incomprehensible for him world order. He firmly and confidently has made his way toward the planned purpose. From the business empire with his Trump-tower he went on to build his own political empire.
The sole boss on the planet
Do not be naive laymen who believed and still believe that the advent of Trump to the White House is the sensation of sensations. The fact that he was admitted to the elections indicates that the establishment of the United States was ready for the win of the eccentric billionaire. But they are not able to calculate everything.
It is no accident that Moscow was involved in the course of the scandalous election of the President of the United States. The plebiscite was attached to the tragicomic nature of the action, where the winner received a big heap of problems in the country and abroad. I would say that the winner could even be envy of the loser. But Trump decided that it was not going to happen. Bound hand and foot by the opposition within the Republican Party, not to mention the opposition of the Democrats, Donald Trump decided to act decisively in the foreign policy arena. After all, he realises that only an active foreign policy can compensate for his failures on the domestic arena.
So he will prove to all and sundry that he is the only boss on this planet, his alleged ties with Moscow is just a propaganda ploy of the enemies. Trump does not play by the rules. He believes that he is the one who writes these rules. Typical Caesarism. He is a populist and he is not worried about the fact that a politician is responsible for voiced political slogans.

Strangely, the Kremlin sincerely believed that Trump, though even formal Republican, but still he is Conservative, what is more – with dictatorial ambitions, he will behave softer than liberal Democrat Obama. Obama is a complete opposite of Trump, which manifests in everything: from external positioning and attitudes to a management style. In this respect, he would not and could not assimilate to Obama, who was called ''indecisive and too soft''. Emperor cannot be soft!
None of the recent U.S. presidents could not resist not to bomb a country where there was a ''bad guy'', the enemy of democracy. Donald Trump did it faster than anyone.
It is despite the fact that the State Department is still not fully personnelly ''equipped''. The team of the security adviser after the dismissal of Flynn, accused of ties with Russia, is clearly in a fragile institutional condition. But in the liability of the President there is a conflict with the leading security services.
So on whose opinion does Trump rely on? It is said that among his main advisers on the Middle East there is his son-in-law Jared Kushner, as well as infamous radical conservative Steve Bannon. In the pool of those who can influence him on the Middle East issue there are David Friedman and Sheldon Adelson. They are considered to be supporters of Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu. There is reason to believe that it is they who pushed through the idea with the missile strike on Syria.
''Stab in the back'' are the words that have already become a political meme, it is the way Moscow reacted to the American hail of Tomahawks on Syria, where, among other things, there is Russian military contingent. The Kremlin, apparently, seriously expected that it would be able to negotiate with the new White House administration on the whole range of the international agenda, starting from Ukraine and ending with the fight against illicit Daesh.

''Such things did not happen under Obama''
But Trump had sent such signals to Moscow, offered to combine efforts on the Syrian issue. But as we have noted above, the emperor is the man of his words: he can do whatever he wants – he can say them, he also can take them back. After all, who can say something against?!
Before that, Trump stunned functionaries of NATO by statements that this structure became obsolete, which caused delight and applause at the Smolensk Square in Moscow. But then he assured the Europeans that NATO should work and strengthen its positions.
It's like he's deliberately teasing everyone around, playing on their nerves. Remember how he does handshake, showing power and who's the boss.
Trump realises that empire, and the U.S. is an empire in its pure form, can only exist under the condition of permanent military and political expansion, pressure and dictates. Otherwise, it is doomed to decay and wilting. The history confirms this. Therefore, a possible strike on the DPRK, to the shores of which there goes the Pacific group of the U.S. Navy, led by the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, no longer seems to be so incredible. Apparently, Trump agreed this small victorious war during a recent meeting with the DPRK leader, XI Jinping.
It's like Trump symbolically gives to know by the strike on Syria and threats against the DPRK that the extreme points of the Near and Far East and everything in between are the sphere of geopolitical dictates of the United States. Russia just lies between these two poles of instability.
Trump does not intend to speak with Putin so far. On his behalf, the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is doing it. Meanwhile, the White House has announced that it is considering tightening sanctions against Russia.
Many experts who praised Trump now whisper that ''under Obama, such things did not happen''… Whatever the case, but it seems that the current period of cold relations between the two countries threatens further lowering of temperature.
