The Three Greats (USA, USSR and GB) fixed their areas of influence during the Postdam Conference, which paved the end of the WW II. But the rivalry especially between the USA and USSR brought about emergence of the bipolar world. The Cold War that longed by the collapse of the USSR determined geopolitical and strategical strugles of the Great Powers in Europe and other places. Though there established a relatively peaceful environment in Europe for about 50 years, the USA and its independent allies experienced a serial of military interventions from 1948 on. After the September 11, 2001, the USA opened military bases in Kyrgyzstan, Tadjikistan and Uzbekistan, with the approval of the Russian Federation, and thus gained geopolitic success. After the collapse of the USSR, Russian troops intervened in some events in various places for peace keeping or struggle with terrorism. In this way, a "relative peace" was established after about 50 years from the WW II. This essay focuses on the critical developments after the end of the bipolar world.
