With this situation, the geopolitical position of the West with the center of the USA was in sharp contrast. (This is especially important, since the position of Western Europe in this alignment of forces was very unenviable; it got the role of the US land base adjacent to the borders of the opposite camp, a kind of "sanitary cordon"). America was completely protected by maritime borders. Moreover, by strategically integrating its continent, it gained control over a huge part of the Eurasian coast, rimland. From Western Europe through Greece and Turkey (NATO member countries), the control of the Atlantists extended to the Far East (Thailand, South Korea, strategically colonized Japan), and this zone smoothly passed into the Indian and Pacific oceans the most important military bases on the island of San Diego, the Philippines, and further on Guam, the Caribbean and Haiti.Therefore, all potential conflicts were transferred beyond the territory of the main strategic space.
