What exactly is the West 'winning'? I Inside Story

Transatlantic relations are not what they were.
Neither is the relationship between France and Germany.
European leaders are concerned by U.S. president Donald Trump’s America First policy.
They’ve differed with him in several areas, from Iran to China.
This was reflected during the annual Munich Security Conference.
Divisions arose between leaders as they discussed whether the West is losing influence — to other global powers.
The answer from the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, was ‘everything is just fine’.
Pompeo boasted the ‘West is winning’ and the transatlantic alliance is not dead.
He rejected remarks by Germany’s President who warned that the United States is putting its own interests first, at the expense of its allies.
But is the U.S. stance on global politics really that positive for western powers?
Or is it undermining their alliance?

  1. Just like people, civilizations are born, they learn, they mature, and they get old and die. The North Atlantic had probably the greatest run in human history, surpassed even the Roman Empire. Time is coming to give it a rest. Nothing unnatural in it.

  2. When I see Macron I always recall "Napoleon" this guy was also small – LOL "short". How ever Macron is right about the French economy reestablishing good relations with Russia. But is is dead wrong by allowing Islam to take over whole cities and territories in France, and he's dead wrong claiming for a even more centralistic, corrupt and authoritarian EU!

  3. You know you guys are not bringing up China what did China give to Iran weapons did they make the wrong you know China's wanted so badly to become the world's biggest arms dealer look what they give to Iran and I run can thank China for the virus because all the freight they sent was contaminated and by the way it lives on a surface for 9 days and the human gestation. Has been clocked officially at 28 days on the 28th day there's been a man recorded who's been watched the whole time died

  4. Lying, cheating, stealing, spying,, defaming, smearing, slandering, threatening, kidnaping. murdering, attacking, invading, sanctioning,…All these have been the glory of the Evil America !

  5. Russia wanted to join the EU. Why wasn't that entertained? Why doesn't one expert explain the history of 2010? I went to Brussels to speak as an American on my anti-GMO documentary work, with Russian business group paying for my business trip. Meanwhile, I couldn't get funding from U.S. CAISE to complete it.

  6. The American positions are an anomaly in international relations! The reality is that hegemony pressures will be continued by the US, especially as it has in procuring advantage for US business in weaker nations! These policies were more considerate prior to Trump and will continue after Trump!! If Trump is re-elected the present deterioration will exacerbate and force Europe into a more unified and sovereign block!!If he is not re-elected multilateralism will prevail and The United Nations will be strengthened as Europe will decline as a block!!

  7. Globalism is dying and it's a good thing. Nationalism and populism are welcome forces that can end the neoliberal nightmare. Hey Europeans. Quit being babies and take care of your citizens first, just like Trump is doing.

  8. China never overthrow any foreign government, or listen to your cell phone conversation like Snowdon revealed about what CIA did to other country leaders around the world. i don't understand why western countries worry about the security for Chinese companies doing business with them. All China want is doing trade around the world and raise up people's living standard. it is good for everyone.

  9. Mike Pompeo was spinning a story to persuade  Europeans to the US way. But nobody is buying. He thinks these highly intelligent leaders are stupid. He can never hope to win over Europe with rhetoric and children 's story

  10. The US created the tecnological, economic monolith that is China, for the benefit of the 1% elites at the expense of the American working class and Middle class.

  11. AMERICA IS BEING DESTROYED FROM THE WHITEHOUSE & THE CURRENT CORRUPTION IN THE GOP. THE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE TOTALLY CONFUSED. HOW COULD PEOPLE WITHOUT ANY COMMON SENCE, RULE THE WORLD…THEY CAN'T!!!

  12. NATO members have no Independence, I wondered like how Italy fueled the bombing of Libya with all their fighters when they had no idea or interest in anything in Libya

  13. One planet one people four compass points four seasons. The west cannot exist without the north, south and east. Pompeo is a fool. Peace love and blessings.
