MOSCOW, August 25. /TASS/. The United States is seeking to rule the world by force of the dominant military power, which could lead to some problems for Washington itself, former French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing told the Rossiya-24 TV channel. He served as the French President between 1974 and 1981.
"It’s a historical fact: when a country has a dominant military power, it wants to rule everybody. This usually ends badly. With us it happened during the Napoleonic era, when we had military superiority and we wanted to rule the entire Europe," the former French president said. "In the United States, there is a lobby that says: we will rule the world with the help of our military might."
According to the French politician, America should deal with its own problems and intervene in global affairs only if it is asked to do so.
"Not a single country, even if it is very rich, even if it has powerful armed forces, is capable of ruling everybody. You should not claim that you will be making decisions for others," Giscard d’Estaing noted.
