Karpovich O.G. Colour Revolutions and the Middle East Vector of the US Foreign Policy

Published in journal "Politics and Society", 2015-9 in rubric "International policy", pages 1134-1141.

Resume: The purpose of the study is to identify the role of the USA in the implementation of the dismantling of the political regimes and application of the technologies of colour revolutions in Libya, Syria and Iraq. The object of research is the policy of the United States of America to change the political regimes in the Middle East and North Africa. The subject of the study are the forms, methods and technologies for the dismantling of the political regimes in Libya, Syria and Iraq. One of the key objectives of the study is to assess the consequences of the "Arab Spring" (the results of the application of the technologies of colour revolutionsby the US and its military and political allies) for the region that unites the Arab world - the Middle East, North Africa, and the evaluation of the impact of these processes on global politics four years after a temporary "freezing" (at the turn of Syria) of the wave of colour revolutions in the Arab world. The methodological basis of the research is a systems, structural and functional, comparative political approaches, methods of analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction, observation. The author draws attention to the fact that the so-called "revolutionary" events of the "Arab Spring" have permanently destabilised the situation not only in North Africa and the Middle East, but also affected (and continue to affect) the global developments. In general, the events taking place today in the Arab world are only the first stage of systemic transformation and "reformatting" of the region, which has not been completed and will continue for several decades. The author focuses on the fact that the so-called revolutions of the "Arab Spring" are colour revolutions containing all the attributes of this kind of technologies: these are the technologies of organising a coup in terms of political instability in which the pressure on the government takes place in the form of popular uprisings and revolts, which only look spontaneous.

Keywords: interests, democracy, colour revolutions, hybrid wars, state, USA, society, politics, values, security
