Anti-Liberal Forces Are Preparing For The ‘Final Battle’ Against The West

As WWIII is taking shape, the West cannot now afford to show weakness and division if it wants to deter the enemy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened to send arms to countries that could attack Ukraine’s allies (i.e. the West). Speaking at a press conference with foreign news organizations at Russia’s annual economic forum in St Petersburg on June 5, Putin said: “We believe that if someone is thinking that it is possible to supply such weapons [i.e. advanced high-tech, high-precision and long-range weapons] to a war zone in order to deliver strikes at our territory and to create problems for us, why can we not supply our weapons of the same class to those regions around the world where they will target sensitive facilities of the countries that are doing this to Russia? The response could be symmetric. We will give it a thought.”

As tensions rise between Israel and Hizbullah, which keeps firing rockets into the north of Israel, anti-liberal Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin suggested that Russia should supply “serious weapons to Hizbullah and the Houthis, up to and including tactical nuclear weapons.”

‘One War; Many Fronts’

In the wake of October 7 Hamas massacre, renowned Russian political expert Fyodor Lukyanov, explained that Israel is an integral part of the “Collective West,” which Russia fiercely confronts. Soon after the attack, Hamas leader abroad Khaled Mash’al said that the Russians are benefiting from it because it is keeping the U.S. distracted from the war in Ukraine. Mash’al went on to claim that the Russians said that the October 7 attack would be taught in military academies. Osama Hamdan of Hamas’s political bureau said at a May 5, 2024 symposium that Hamas maintains contact with Russia and China and that the power of the “resistance axis” is at the service of these countries’ international role.

In order to defeat the “Collective West,” Russia is strengthening relations with all anti-liberal movements and dictatorships. According to Dugin, the final battle against the liberal West is approaching. He said: “Gradually, all countries, continents, and civilizations are becoming an arena of ferocious struggle between the fading unipolar world and the rising multipolar one. One war. Many fronts.” That is, the war against the Collective West will be fought on many fronts to bring about, first and foremost, the fall of the U.S.

Dugin stressed: “After all, this is a struggle between the multipolar world and the unipolar world, which means that it is being waged not only in the interests of Russia as a pole, but also indirectly (or even directly) in the interests of all the emerging geopolitical poles. This is best understood by China and, among Islamic countries, by Iran.”

Each Pole ‘Must Prove Its Right For Existence Through Conflict’

The anti-liberal Russian philosopher explained that “new poles” (i.e. the emerging anti-liberal powers, mainly Russia, China, Iran and North Korea) that “do not agree to tolerate” the West’s “hegemony” will have to fight militarily for the demise of the West-led unipolar world order, so as to replace it with a multipolar world order, in which liberal democracy will be defeated.

Yet, stated Dugin, “multipolarity will not be formed by itself,” and “each of the poles must prove its right for existence through conflict.” This means that the final battle will be fought on several fronts by the anti-liberal forces with the common goal of shaping “full-fledged and sovereign poles.” Russia will fight for total victory in Ukraine; China will go for Taiwan’s annexation (and possibly the militarization of the South China Sea); North Korea will invade South Korea; and the Iran-led resistance axis will attack Israel (and U.S. interests in the Middle East). Moreover, Dugin suggested, more attention should be paid to Mexico, since newly elected President Claudia Sheinbaum may become an ally against Western liberal democracy.

As WWIII is taking shape, the West cannot now afford to show weakness and division if it wants to deter the enemy.
