Summary/Abstract: Within analysis of the relations in the field of foreign politics, in particular in case of the analysis of reality of great global strategies, implementation of heated discourse of collective attraction and love among nations and states in most of the cases has not given results of any cognitive value. Pragmatism of various multiple global and regional interests points out on necessity for a calm and non- emotional analysis of sympathy and support. Certainly interests precede political issues, except in case of irrational political situations when somebody, deceived with contemporary feelings, might persistently act against their own national and state interests. Even worse situation could be created when somebody act in self- destroying manner, through rationalization of false sentiments or through a so- called “sour grapes” syndrome. In such case it is fruitless to go lamenting over bad luck and historical destiny of their own nation and states, and presenting themselves as victims. It also does not produce any result to point out indispensable superiority of the damaging and destroying participant in such destiny. In such cases, basic national interests is unprotected and unfulfilled as it is already abounded and denied in that way.
