Leon Panetta: Current Relations with the Russian Federation - a New Stage of the Cold War

24
A new chapter of the Cold War has been opened in relations between the USA and the Russian Federation RIA News statement by the former head of the Pentagon, Leon Panetta.




We have a new chapter of the Cold War with Russia,
Panetta said at a conference at the Hudson Institute in Washington.

In his opinion, the United States should play a significant role in the Middle East, particularly in Syria, and also restrain Russia's influence on the region and draw “demarcation lines”.

If you do not act harshly with (Putin, President of the Russian Federation) Putin, he will benefit from this. I think for this reason that it is very important for the United States to make it clear to them that there are lines that he (Putin) cannot cross,
said the ex-minister.

He noted that today the US administration "is not doing very well" with Moscow.

You can't just hope that at some point they (Russia) will become "good guys." You have to be tough with them, and if you say that something happens, then you stick to it. You can negotiate with Putin, we did it, and we achieved success in the past. But you have to do it from a position of strength,
said panetta.

Earlier, during the session of the Valdai Discussion Club, Vladimir Putin said that he believed in solving problems between the Russian Federation and the United States, but Washington’s desire was necessary.

    For the Western world, a direct competitor, also gaining strength, cannot be a "good guy" by definition. In their opinion, it must be crushed. And so they thought and acted always, unfortunately.

      GDP, the same is not right! Russia has never had good relations with the West and will not have it - equal partnership and only if our nuclear club is constantly under the nose of the Anglo-Saxons, then they will be mutually polite! These are parasitic colonists, they have an idea of ​​"good" relations , only one thing - like a white master with slaves and they are not even specially, they have it in their blood ... Therefore, there is no need for illusions! Here - seasoned Anglasax Leon Panetta - as proof of my words!

        Do you think that British and Spanish separatism has become aggravated overnight by itself? Someone is definitely funding them. I guess who. I hope to see these coburgs and bourbons on the chopping block ... This muck participated in the destruction of the autocratic clans of Eurasia a hundred years ago, now their turn.

    In the relations between the USA and the Russian Federation a new chapter of the Cold War is opened

    Finally recognized the obvious. It remains only for our Foreign Ministry to recognize that the "partners" are not such and stop chewing snot.

    People whose main measure of interest is $ and fin interests. Can there be friends? No, of course they can be, but in the event that they are profitable.
    There is a law of physics, the stronger the pressure, the stronger the reaction force.
    At some point, the Force can leave the source of pressure and then ..... the reaction force will be destructive.
    Therefore.
    The wise seeks friends, ignoramuses of enemies.

    They all want to negotiate, but from a position of strength. But what if nobody wants to talk to them? It remains only to STRIKELY bang your head against the wall!

    It was 1913, Russia felt Great, a Power rising from its knees. War, decay, humanitarian aid. We recovered, felt Great, rising from our knees, Power. War, humanitarian aid. Recover: Hungary, Czechoslovakia, the war in Afghanistan. Decay humanitarian aid. We found ourselves again, rose again from our knees - is history going in a spiral?

    From these scumbags smells of manure and gunpowder. We need to ask them a question: "Hey, cowboys, do you even know what century is in the yard? Not in your farmyard, but according to the Gregorian calendar ..."
