Threats in order: Russia is number one, Islamists are number two

37
The British government is wandering in the dark. The whole world has already understood, and London has not yet understood: “the main threats to the world order” are Russia and the Islamic State (prohibited in Russia).




As Paul Mason believes, in London they still have not understood that Russia and the jihadist terrorists are the main threats to the world. The British government’s defense policy is “ridiculous,” writes a columnist in «The Guardian», because it does not take into account the above-mentioned main "threats".

UK defense policy must reflect the main threats. We need a strategy that takes into account the "evolutionary nature of war."

But even in 2015, British defense and security policy was defined in two words: “global reach”. However, apart from ridicule, the implementation of such a policy today does not cause anything. In addition, 20 has a billion pound hole in the defense budget. The navy of Britain is not the same. And even the Tories are now unhappy. Something “much more radical” is needed: for example, abandon the ridiculous policy of “global reach” and start all over again.

Since 2015, under the leadership of the “two least inspiring figures” of the ruling cabinet, F. Hammond, the foreign secretary, and M. Fellon of the Department of Defense, Britain has managed to reassert itself in the east of the Suez Canal. In addition, these two launched the conversion of part of the army into "shock brigades" intended to invade other countries on land and at sea. There was talk about the replacement of the Trident missiles on submarines and about aircraft carriers.

The only thing that was missed among these huge programs is “a clear understanding of the growing threats to Britain”, the journalist is sure.

These dangers, as is obvious, are the jihadist terrorism of the "Islamic State" and the hybrid war that "Vladimir Putin is waging against all Western democracies." Already "in the 2015 year it became clear," the author adds that "the main strategic threat to the global order comes from unilateral actions of Moscow." Evidence: “the annexation of the Crimea”, the “redistribution” of Ukraine, the “massacre” of passengers on the MH17 flight, whose trail is drawn “to the Russian instigators and armed rebels”.

In London, at the time, the security strategy paid attention to issues of trade, the budget, the naval base in Bahrain and training missions in Malaysia and Singapore!

Since then, the Kremlin has managed to effectively manipulate the US electoral system. And now the man "suspected of having links with Russian intelligence," is the commander in chief of the United States! Order degraded to chaos! The situation “requires rethinking”!

* * *


So, the British press is sounding the alarm: London is not doing what is necessary. While he is not doing what is necessary, the opponents of democracies are attacking from all sides. It is possible that the Russians are about to enter this very London, about which Mason writes so passionately. Putin’s strategic goal, Mason thinks, is to transform Europe into something “multi-polar”, where “opposition parties” acting “in the interests of Moscow” will set the tone.

Only one thing, apart from a lack of strategic clarity of thinking, makes it difficult for the government to implement Mason's plan. Money. They are not.

    According to Paul Mason (Paul Mason), in London still do not understand that the main threats to peace are Russia and jihadist terrorists.

    Russia does not need London for nothing, and it has never threatened to threaten peace ... but the Islamists ... so they are already in the EU and in the same London. These peers and lords have brewed everything, and the public is fed horror stories in which they are white and fluffy, and the main enemies are backward Arab countries and Russian barbarians. The war, as was the Slavs with the Anglo-Saxons, so it continues to this day.

        Well, the destruction of entire nations have the experience of just the Anglo-Saxons. I’m probably talking not about total annihilation, but about the eradication of nationality to the size of a small or very small people. An example is the Indians in the United States or the people of Tasmania by the British.

        Jihadists are the brainchild of the Anglo-Saxons.

            Yes, it is high time in every city to erect an obelisk (with letters) and to teach from the first class that Russia is always at all times to blame for everything and is the number one enemy for all. And do not bathe ... and live with a specific goal in an eternal struggle. soldier

            although any sane person who uses his head not only to eat food is well aware that the main threat to peace, the last 400 years are these island dogs and their overseas miscarriages with their bloody paws inherited from the south pole on all continents of the world.

          To leaf through the history of Anglo-Saxon "adventures" of the century, from the 16th. And I assure you. Not verbatim of course:

          “We will cross out all references to your existence ...”

          Anglo-Saxons should not exist! And another conflict involving Russia (and this will be the third one already) will put an end to this issue.

          Because. Well, how much can you endure?

          I think so.

    How did the sir peers pay so much? Now the British media will point out not only shortcomings, but also indicate the "right" path. Which is characteristic, but their madhouse no longer even surprises.

    "There was talk of replacing the Trident missile submarines."
    So the boats are not Trident, but Vengart (Vanguard), and Trident rocket. It’s the same as Borean called the Mace.

    Russians are already in London. And there are not few of them. So the attempt to "confiscate" the acquired back-breaking labor can lead to unexpected consequences. These Russians are being organized, and the revolution in London is being smacked. They have enough money for it wassat

    Yes, let them once again talk about the "isolation of Russia" ...

    1On October 2, the leaders of 20 large German corporations will arrive in Sochi to meet with Putin.
    An incomplete list of companies: Siemens, Linde, Bauer, Knauf, Schaeffler, Wolffkran, Metro, Nord Stream, Winter holl, for sure: BMW, Volkswagen, SCHNEIDER, WILO, Henkel, AIRBUS, Uniper, etc. The meeting was initiated by the Eastern Committee of the German Economy.

    Of course, the threat is real.
    They have shamed it to the fullest over the past centuries with impunity, and now they will slam it if something happens at a time.
    Even Gramyko (if not confusing), Thatcher said publicly.
    - Margret, do not forget that you live on the island.
    For a while, with the departure of the USSR, they relaxed.
    Now they realized that they are again under the hood.

    Britain has long ceased to have its own foreign policy, since the synod of Anglo-Saxon wise men has long migrated to the United States. They give installation - but there is a justification.
