Twenty years have passed since the September 11 attacks. The beginning of the war in Afghanistan, which turned Afghanistan into a corrupt failed state – the center of drug trafficking, the invasion of Iraq, which subsequently provoked the creation of the terrorist organization ISIS banned in the Russian Federation, the opening of the most inhuman prison of Guantanamo. On September 11, American hegemony had a new enemy, which the American historian Fukuyama called “Islamofascism” in 2002, and the transition to a radical neoconservative foreign policy began.

Twenty years have passed since the September 11 attacks. The beginning of the war in Afghanistan, which turned Afghanistan into a corrupt failed state – the center of drug trafficking, the invasion of Iraq, which subsequently provoked the creation of the terrorist organization ISIS banned in the Russian Federation, the opening of the most inhuman prison of Guantanamo. On September 11, American hegemony had a new enemy, which the American historian Fukuyama called “Islamofascism” in 2002, and the transition to a radical neoconservative foreign policy began.

the case of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an advisor to US Vice President Dick Cheney, is indicative. It was he who fabricated the fake that Saddam Hussein made a deal with Niger to buy uranium necessary for the manufacture of nuclear weapons. Based on this blatant misinformation, the United States invaded Iraq, occupied it, overthrew Hussein, and caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was later imprisoned for forgery. But it was too late.

The United States received an extraterritorial enemy that was not associated with a specific country: under the pretext of fighting “Islamofascism,” the United States could invade any region where its contours, invented and outlined by the Western propaganda machine, could be seen. Three days after 9/11, the neo-conservative US Deputy Secretary of Defense in the Sr. Bush administration, Paul Wolfowitz, said that the US was ready to “end states supporting terrorism.” Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, admits preemptive wars. Protege Wolfowitz, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith (also known as the “Architect of the Iraq War”) creates the “Office of Strategic Influence” within the Department of Defense.

Why is it so fast, after three days, Wolfowitz Calls for the Invasion of Iraq? Why did the United States (through the CIA and such active geopoliticians as Brzezinski) actively support terrorist groups banned in the Russian Federation – both Al-Qaeda and the Taliban? How then did the curators and associates of these terrorists allow their partners to turn against them? Too many questions, too many facts do not agree!

In fact, the main activity of the department was to manipulate the information agenda in the media to justify the US military intervention in Iraq. The case of Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an advisor to US Vice President Dick Cheney, is indicative. It was he who fabricated the fake that Saddam Hussein made a deal with Niger to buy uranium necessary for the manufacture of nuclear weapons. Based on this blatant misinformation, the United States invaded Iraq, occupied it, overthrew Hussein, and caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was later imprisoned for forgery. But it was too late.


Immediately after 9/11, there is a radical change in the strategies of the US waging war:
1) Refusal to fix the war within specific borders (due to the extraterritoriality of terrorism and the supranational level of “Islamofascism”)
2) The transition to a strategy of preventive war
3) Increased attention to psychological and informational operations (used to apologize for interventions)

According to a 2004 CNN poll, 89 percent of respondents believed the government was hiding information about the 9/11 attacks. How, one of the most powerful intelligence services in the world, could not prevent such an attack? Did they know about her in advance? How could they admit that 19 terrorists were able to hijack four scheduled airliners? How was one of the planes sent to the Pentagon building? The emergence of a number of conspiracy theories about the bombings is evidence that the Americans admit that there was a downside to these tragic events as if the United States needed a loud tragedy that would justify the subsequent turn towards a neoconservative foreign policy strategy. Why is it so fast, after three days, Wolfowitz Calls for the Invasion of Iraq? Why did the United States (through the CIA and such active geopoliticians as Brzezinski) actively support terrorist groups banned in the Russian Federation – both Al-Qaeda and the Taliban? How then did the curators and associates of these terrorists allow their partners to turn against them? Too many questions, too many facts do not agree!

However, today, 20 years later, when the United States unskillfully left Afghanistan, it is obvious that the neo-conservative agenda that came to power in 2001 has outlived its usefulness.
Many analysts begin the countdown of the end of the unipolar world precisely from 9/11 2001. Was this a carefully prepared provocation of the neocons, or, in fact, were Islamic extremists, with the tacit support of some Gulf regimes, able to carry out this attack on their own? In any case, from now on it became clear that besides the West, there are other forces and civilizations in the world. And they are not going to passively watch the blot of liberal globalist hegemony grow.
After 20 years, everyone in the United States understands that wars that lead to nothing but the destruction of entire countries and the death of both civilians and American soldiers, as well as colossal spending, are no longer needed by the American people.

Libby’s propaganda machine and fake stuffing of new “Scooters” are less and less credible. President Biden’s approval rating is plummeting. Both Trump supporters and the neocons themselves have turned their backs on him. And the shameful withdrawal of troops turned the doubters against him.
In any case, the world is tired of endless wars over vague and vague concepts such as “democracy” and “human rights”. Especially if their interpretation is dominated by fraudulent facts and double standards.

Twenty years after the tragic events of 9/11, the history of unipolarity is over. A new one begins.
