Results of the week. Russian leaders in everything!

Yes, it will be PAK YES


A promising strategic missile carrier (PAK DA) will be able to replace all types of Far aviation and at the same time it will be cheaper in production and operation, TASS reported citing a source in the military-industrial complex.

Results of the week. Russian leaders in everything!




Yes, he is, of course, capable of replacing, but only to get started, at least in a cardboard version, to get a model. For it is strange to discuss what is not, declaring that, they say, as soon as it appears, so “the enemy cannot resist,” and it will be even cheaper. It is clear that no one has canceled the information wars, but no one has canceled such a thing as “cap-ticking”. And we also have an expression about the fact that it would not be worthwhile to say “gop” until you jump over. "Five-year plans at three years old" is not necessary - it would be better to be systematically, without overstating the estimates and with a real end result.

Let's create it first. Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.


RASKAT
Yeah, we can not build a Tu-160M, and we are already dreaming about PAK DA. What will we fly on? Which engines? How many new engine is created? Years 10-15, well, then the plane will be ready for 30-35 years.

Officials often wishful thinking. Some want to be fermented, some unknowingly. Here and in this case, there is only a technical project for design development and the intended image of the PAK DA, and they are already replacing the entire Long-Range Aviation.
If my memory does not change, then the cycle from the development of a technical project to the creation of a prototype, including the design development stage, is of the order of 10-15 years (I may be wrong plus or minus 5 years). Moreover, with an increase in take-off weight, the cycle duration increases. And I'm not talking about the serial release.


Have you heard how the Drozdy sings?

Americans have repeatedly made attempts to gain access to installed on Tanks Russian active defense complexes. They had at their disposal the Drozd complex, which not only successfully passed the tests, but was officially accepted for service.





It would be strange to assume that Kiev did not help the United States. In order for this filth in the Kiev chairs with such tenacity and tried to seat, so that she worked exclusively for the United States, in the interests of the United States and in the name of the United States. They passed the secrets of active defense ... Yes, they managed to convey there everything that is possible and what is impossible. Soul sold, and you say some kind of "Thrush" ...

Need a fence and a visa. For racing on Independence should be punished. For the laws I lie - there must be punishment. For the sale of technology - should be punished. For the non-return of 3 billions of debt - should be punished. For the murder of journalists and residents of LDNR - to punish. For natural stupidity and selyukovatost - must be punished.
Financially punishing let their power (with which they successfully cope, well done) - we need to somehow more original and painful.

In fact, the statements (about US aid to the United States to unravel the secrets of the active protection of the “Thrush”) are absolutely unproven. So to react to it so painfully ... Nerves take care, gentlemen. That, "what a woman said ..." Facts in the studio, please, and with such stuffing soon you will believe that Judas was from Berdichev! Personally, I perfectly remember the tales of the newest tanks sold during the withdrawal of our troops from Germany C-300 and part of the Su-27 ...


When will they call on the gorilka?

So, how will the situation develop in Ukraine in the near future? Is there real opposition to Poroshenko’s regime in Ukraine? Who can, not in words, but in deeds, make a real, and not imaginary, competition to the ruling regime? And in general, what is the essence of the Russian game in Ukraine in the next year or two?





And again about Ukraine ... After how many minutes will Poroshenko's regime fall? .. For what place will Avakov hang these days? .. How many moves are left in the Kremlin’s very tricky game? Etc. It is strange that few people asked questions about where Ukraine is heading, which in recent years (before Poroshenko’s arrival) has consistently built a line of contacts for Euro-Atlantic integration, which has heroized Bandera, calling the street after it, which bent its knee before the American ambassador, who refused to ask apologies from Russians for the Tu-154 shot down over the Black Sea. And now “tricky moves”, “super-gliders” and so on. Yes, in Kiev, for a moment, Zurabov was sitting as ambassador, which in itself made it clear that the Ukrainian policy direction was absent from Russia as such. Now we are moaning - how is it that happened to bratushki, why aren't they calling on a gorilka ...

And when is Peremoga planned there? For years, 10-20 will there still be races on a rake going on or more? It seems to me that we will receive a second Poland according to the results at our borders. It is likely to shrink on the territory. Donbass, most likely, will follow us, well, maybe some of the Black Sea coast, in the west, part of the territory will fall off to the Hungarians, Romanians and Poles, and there will be a stump with the capital, Kiev. And what other option for the West? It’s impossible to completely reformat Ukraine then they will tear off what they can and will reformat this piece well and until the next time. And all is well according to the results. And we are well, we have full tryndets with our demographics, and here we will get the missing millions of hands and they are good, the crisis and the same problems with the demographics of someone have to be eaten, we don’t work out, they will eat ukrogluptsov.

I wonder how long the Ukrainians have enough “brains” to support the self-destructing melting pot called “Ukraine” in working condition?


Cat Marquis
Well, again .... I thought yesterday, after an article about the "defeat of the USA", the author would "let go", an-no .... mix in a bunch of everything, put "the lists" on the parliamentary "alignment" of forces to make "an unexpected the conclusion "that the United States will win the elections in any case ... And at the end, the" unexpected ": what is worse in Ukraine, the Russian, they say, is better .... Yeah, for how many years this is worse than" ? Ukraine "will soon freeze over", then "will die of hunger", then "go bankrupt", then what else is there with her "terrible" will be .... So how? How fulfilled are these expectations? Not yet tired of these mantras? Meanwhile, in Russia itself, the situation in the economy and in public life is getting worse and worse - it was only yesterday that an article was discussed on the BO that the number of bankrupt enterprises was only growing despite the vigorous reports of the Ministry of Economic Development.


Give Dave to our MO! ..

The article begins with a rather bold thesis. D. Majumdar believes that the latest Russian and Chinese air-to-air missiles pose a serious threat to the US air force. They threaten critical elements of the Air Force, such as long-range radar detection and control aircraft, various reconnaissance vehicles, refueling aircraft, EW equipment carriers, etc.





One question: why is Dave Majumdar (Majumdar) still not working in the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense? In fact, Dave's publications at NI are ready-made releases for our defense department. It does not matter that they are not always truthful, but our department can sometimes afford to admit a blunder with a screenshot of the game as an illustration of the situation in Syria, or with the “girl” in Hitler’s cap in the stands during a military holiday. It's good that they fix and apologize to users. And Dave - five points and rank, well, at least, a major ...

It dies, it dies, but as it dies, it will be assembled, so it can take half of the known continent with it.
I can give an example using my subject matter. A person has three firearms weapons. But one cracked the butt, the other bore went with the whole shell, because the great-grandfather fired from it, but the third, a new, modern trouble-free rifle and ammunition for it in sufficient quantities, and even interchangeable barrels and pribludy different facilitate efficient use. And so, according to the logic of Robert Beckhasen, the man on 2 / 3 is unarmed.

As a specialist, Majumdar is only suitable for PR ... read his articles ... but in general

What was it?..

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation: For an employee who mistakenly attached photographs with screenshots of a video game, a check is being conducted. Speech on the screenshot of the game, presented on the Facebook page of the Defense Ministry under the guise of a snapshot from the air in Syria.





It is clear that only he who does nothing is not mistaken. But in this case, the strangeness is still obvious. After all, it is not the “boy and girl” themselves who are responsible for the content of the official pages of the MoD on social networks, decide which photo to publish. After all, someone from the "professionals" gave it to them for publication. And who is this someone? Complete loser or frank provocateur? Now there was some kind of rotten situation: it seemed to be there, they drove, they drove, but the sediment really remained - and not at all like in that joke with spoons. Real such sediment. Moreover, now the “partners” have a separate reason to throw arrows at the Russian Defense Ministry itself regarding the facts provided for Syria.

Most likely, someone once again stupidly did not want to go into conflict with the United States, so as not to have problems with personal "assets."

Absolutely logical result of all current domestic policies. The apotheosis of unprofessionalism and the consequences of the ostentatiousness that prevails in the Armed Forces in particular and the state as a whole. All just for the sake of a tick and beautiful pictures. Examples of mass, one fight against corruption is worth. I remember how we all not so long ago mocked at similar masterpieces of authorship of the USA and Ukraine. Nice neighing! Or maybe we are similar to the latter, not only in this ...


About Super Bombers and PR Campaigns

The upgraded "White Swan" will become a "super-bomber." So the Russian Tu-160М2 plane was called by the columnist of The National Interest, the American edition of The National Interest, Dave Majumdar.





Dave again about the daily. It seems that one or two publications in NI of this author sometimes replace the entire PR campaign of the representatives of our defense industry directly. We were talking there about the need to assign a major to Dave. Oh, no, Dave - now don't settle for less than the “underground”. Moreover, Dave winds up such characteristics of the Russian technology as the "flight range in 50 thousand km." For this and in the generals it's time to knock.

Cut47

Back at the beginning of 2017, information appeared on the rearmament of the Ukrainian army. It is about replacing the Kalashnikov with a new WAC47, which is a version of the M4. Given the country's desire to become as “westward” as possible, this phenomenon is quite natural and something similar could be observed in the countries that were once part of the Warsaw Pact and now are members of NATO.





Rearming a copy of the NATO trunk under the Soviet cartridge is a truly ingenious invention of the sawflies of the budget in Ukraine. Ahhh. In fact, everything is clear: taking photos for Instagram with Kalash for Ukrainian perehozhnikov is a move, and now it will be possible to populate with an “American type” trunk - that's cool! Caliber, they say, nobody sees anyway, but the desire to get the status of a NATO member is obvious ...

For Soviet ammunition they have enough Soviet rifle.
For NATO ammunition, the license for Tavor, bought, if I am not mistaken, under Yushchenko. They even produced in small batches ... Apparently, someone decided to make money.


Someone really thinks that Kiev and Washington want peace in the Donbas?

The commander of the special unit "Troy" of the armed forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), Vladimir Novikov, said that in the near future the Ukrainian army could launch an offensive along the administrative border of the Donbass republics towards the Russian border.





APU hit in the direction of the border of the Russian Federation? It can be allowed for the simple reason that the longer the construction by the American military instructors and the special services of the Ukrainian power structures lasts, the greater the likelihood of such a development of events. After all, it is not for this that the States support the current Ukrainian government so that the conflict on the borders of Russia will come to naught.
It is also alarming that such a scenario has already happened - and in recent storieswhen another American protégé ordered the shelling of Russian peacekeepers. And then, too, they first accused Russia allegedly of “shooting at themselves.” Perhaps this is why Washington is so actively promoting its own version of the peacekeeping mission in the Donbass, so that in the future it will again blame the Russian Federation for the blow organized on it.

Butting with the United States in the Ukrainian field is stupid, pointless and counterproductive. It is necessary to butt with him on the American field. As long as the United States and Britain exist in their current form, Russia will not be allowed to develop calmly.

Yes, in Syria, the Yankees multiplied by zero, mongrels murmured, even Eun sent to the open "exclusive nation" in the anal journey! Now yankesam remains brave, i.e. other people's Kholuy hands, to spoil Russia in Banderia. The dirty trick expected, I think, plans of counteraction are provided. Strength of spirit and good luck to Donbass!

America and Poroshenko need a sea of ​​blood. Everything can be written off to blood flows, and Trump's rating is strengthened, the chair of the President of Ukraine is glued to Poroshenko's ass tight, and then it slips from him. And that people - this cannon fodder, will grow ever. The beast got hungry.


Will Washington save "mnogohodovka"?

As Y. Damantsev predicted, several days before the beginning of the CAA offensive operation on the last large IK reinforced area (forbidden in the Russian Federation), the southern city of Abu Kemal, after taking over most of the forces of the Syrian army and allies under control, the US leadership ways to compensate for the operational-strategic defeat that resulted in the loss of the entire southern operational direction, in which the creation of a tactical "corridor" from Abu Kemal to At-Tanf initially loomed. Kurdish access (YPG / YPJ) to the Mediterranean coast of Syria has been reliably blocked by thousands of units of the “Syrian Free Army”, supported by units of the regular Turkish army, as well as the CAA in the Idlib and Aleppo provinces. Moreover, the western enclave of the SDF (located in the north-western part of the Aleppo Governorate) continues to remain in the “cauldron” closed by the units of the NE of Turkey, the SSA and the CAA. From the main grouping of the "Syrian Democratic Forces" this enclave separates the pro-Turkish military "backbone" of the "Syrian Free Army", located between the cities of Azaz and Jarabulus. All areas are carefully controlled with the help of DER and reconnaissance UAVs of the Turkish Armed Forces, which is why the Kurds will not be able to make special, tactically advantageous “movements”.





The only way out for Washington could be the next “multi-move”, where anti-Assad forces of the SSA, acting against the Syrian army and Hezbollah, will be weakened by the “channels” of Riyadh, and then fully controlled Kurdish units will join. This is clearly expressed in today's aggravation of relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran. At the same time, in this field, the activities of Americans will be constrained for many months or even years by the establishment of new post-war de-escalation zones in the Syrian theater of operations, which means that the only way to increase the downgrade of the Trump administration is to implement a successful force strategy in the Donbas.

Willing to believe it. Now the messengers from Washington are testing the ground for a new adventure against the LDNR. So far it is difficult to say that this will be, or the Croatian option, or a new offensive ... with the repetition of the Debaltsevsk boiler.

Now there will be no offensive. It will happen after the failure of the "peacemakers" in the UN.

While Kiev is confident in its military superiority (and he is sure), military conflict is inevitable. It is just a matter of time.


“This violence is unacceptable and incomprehensible”

A young, talented Frenchman of Maghreb origin, named Wafa Hammich, and the nickname Vargasss 92, is an idol of young people performing rap. This star invited fans to meet him "in real" in the center of Brussels. Policemen who were far from deification of Vargasss 92 attempted to escort the organizer of the illegal mass gathering of people to the police station. Clashes began with the police, the pogrom of the nearest shops and stores. In addition to several police cars, private cars parked on the streets were also damaged.

The provoked reinforcements dispersed the hooligan crowd of youngsters, without too much ceremony, but without sending anyone to the hospitals. More than 30 people were detained, including the instigator himself. During the past 24 hours, all were released without charge. Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon condemned the clashes and said that the police are doing everything necessary to maintain order. “This violence is unacceptable and incomprehensible,” the Interior Minister said.





In fact, "everything is very understandable," said columnist Mikhail Onufienko. According to him, the police "showed extreme lack of professionalism." “It was enough to call in reinforcements, provide a cordon and agree with the organizer to hold a meeting in 10-15 minutes. Then quietly go home. And the fans who were absolutely not sharpened to protest would have safely listened to their idol, ”he believes.

Such a conclusion seems at least naive. Are these gathered really “not imprisoned for protest”? It is not possible to prove such a statement, since young people, by their age and energy, are always “sharpened” to protest, whatever it may be. And about the time interval in "10-15 minutes", during which the rapper was obliged to "hold a meeting," to talk is completely absurd. A crowd gathered near their idols is not inclined to “quietly” go home, it is not for nothing that a large number of policemen are keeping an eye on all sorts of concerts, public events and gambling such as football.

"... neither the Vargasss 92 itself, nor its fans planned any clashes with the police and were initially very peaceful in their mood."
Did the Vargasss 92 tell it to the author? Not for the crowd (especially Muslim) in the center of the city, to peacefully stand up and go home. Just just kittens are born, and that is not always.

Given the breeding rate of Muslims, Europe will soon end, and the white-faced will become exhibits of mini-reserves in EU capitals.

Ah yes, no one in the West will allow any Maidan to carry out - so many policemen with water cannons, gas and injuries will come quickly (and just in case, fighting ones) that in an hour or two any “Maidan” will be blown into dust. In Europe, Yanukovych is not in power.
In Catalonia, the Boski swept away, all this a little (5 days) was judged and already forgotten. Maidans see them in Europe - funny.


Electronic warfare with NATO

Robert K. Ackerman believes that Russia has been able to implement advanced technologies in the field of electronic warfare. Today, Russian EW systems are ahead of Western electronic systems in efficiency and power.

Based on a report from one of the European think tanks, Ackerman is confident that the plan to modernize our country's armed forces for the period up to 2025 is not just the basis for further improvement. The report, published by Roger McDermott from the International Center for Defense and Security Problems in Estonia, focuses on threats emanating from Russian EW funds for the Baltic region. But Ackerman believes that the findings of the authors of the study may be applicable to all Russian forces adjacent to the borders of NATO, since the EW of Russia funds are highly mobile.

Russian EW facilities are capable of disrupting and interrupting the operation of NATO communication channels, suppress drones, radar and other surveillance and communication systems.





In general, according to R. Skomorokhov, the conclusions of Mr. Akerman are “very literate”.

“As far as NATO is concerned, this analysis shows that the first sign of Russian military activity against the Eastern European member countries of the alliance will most likely consist in the actions of the EW systems.

The Alliance still has a lot to do to eliminate the backlog, which was caused by ignoring the growth of Russian military potential in this area.

Due to the fact that the Russian military is seeking to improve its EW facilities in order to gain an advantage over the armed forces of Western countries, NATO should change its approaches to politics, doctrine, organization, means, training, tactics, methods and scenarios of military exercises.

It is impossible not to agree with this, notes the columnist. The fact that the United States recognizes our success in the development and implementation of new EW complexes is encouraging. However, the adversary’s understanding of his own lag usually leads to the development of certain measures aimed at leveling the problem. Since the problem lies in the fact that the Russian EW funds significantly exceed the capabilities of the alliance, and NATO understands this, which means that we should wait for a response.

And the question is, in what area will NATO leadership take these measures ...

Yankesy carried and continue to carry their democracy around the world, and whoever does not want them (the United States) doesn’t care much ... So it’s better to discourage them from doing so in advance, and the country’s defense capability never went harm! I wish only that any such "surprises" be actively and massively supplied to our troops.

For me, Livonians are not an argument: "international center of defense and security in Estonia". They see our tank in every truck, and in every locator they will see the newest means of Russian Railways. So I am skeptical of the Livonian sources.


Russian leaders in everything!

There are at least three key areas in which Russia has a military advantage over the United States, said Lisa Sawyer Semp, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The first direction is the ability to restrict and prevent access to a certain territory (the concept of anti-access and area denial, A2 / AD), the second is combined hostilities in which various branches of the military take part, and the third direction is cyberwar and electronic warfare , quotes Lisa Sawyer Semp magazine "The National Interest".





It is not surprising that in recent years, American experts have been stating one and all about the impossibility of the United States to confront Russia in a “frontal global clash”, including in a potential theater of military operations in Eastern and Central Europe. Neither the United States nor NATO as a whole has the strength to carry out a “frontal attack”. And even the retired General F. Breedlove, who recently had a direct relationship with NATO, complained in the summer about the insufficient pace with which the NATO forces would respond to the Russians in their A2 / AD “territories”. In his opinion, a single response from the air would not be enough. But the Russians are constantly modernizing their weapons!

That is, in fact, an advantage in defensive armament and systems.
So what's the catch?
Will a denyushku under the STE be asked for more, or will they develop offensive weapons, will Schaub be overcome and guaranteed to run into "aggressive" Russia?
In short, let's see what the "pigeons of peace" from the Pentagon, Congress and the White House are thinking about.


Boa kaa
Waited in anticipation of "Sarmat" with GZBB type U-71 ...
Then they will be stunned with horror ... And again they will keep silent, this way they are tolerant.
Because to recognize the primacy of the Russian Federation in the SNF means to completely lose face with our NATO partners. And who, what, need a toothless lion? Rather, plucked Eagle ...


APASUS
No matter how brightly the speeches of the generals from the Pentagon sounded, yet, it seems, they really appreciate their chances. Hence the tactical concept of A2 / AD. Until the Americans are confident that our arsenal will be destroyed by the first wave of 101% missiles and by this they will not get the answer, they will not attack the Russians.


Why America lost

What's happening? Why has the terrible and all-conquering American diplomacy suffered one defeat after another? What is the main mistake of the American elite today?

Y. Podolyak answered these questions in his article.





“Today,” the author concludes, “when we see the defeats of Washington at one point or another of the globe, we are witnessing the end of long-established parties. The main "mistakes" of the USA were made long ago. Even when, in 1991, they destroyed the USSR and decided that no one else would ever be able to challenge them. The Americans focused on their internal disassembly, relaxed ... and lost. "

If you follow this logic, it turns out that the Americans "forged" their future defeats just at the time of victory. The victory in the cold war of the 20th century gave way to a retreat in the complex and changeable world of the 21st century, where the globalization factor has increased, the poles on the planet have become larger, and the US has become smaller.

Will Trump be able to make America “great again,” as he promised before the election? Will there be a second Reagan from Trump? Or is his lot to tweet on Twitter?

I think that's not the point. As history shows, the decline of any nation begins immediately, as soon as this nation begins to consider itself superior to others, declaring itself godlike. So it was with Babylon, so it was with the Roman Empire, so it was with the Third Reich, so it will be with the USA ... Pride is the main human sin.
And they say: malum sē ipsum dēvorat - evil devours itself.


They dream to ruin Russia into pieces

Former CIA and US National Intelligence officials are convinced: Vladimir Putin intimidated Donald Trump. In major American publications, they write about Putin’s outstanding “trolling” aimed at the entire West. Some European experts have suggested that Russia is not a modern state, and its disintegration would contribute to the formation of truly liberal states on the ruins of an “empire”.





Consequently, the West has the only way to get rid of the Russian "intimidation": to split an outdated "empire" into many "regions" that will compete with each other. The first in the competitive race for survival will be the raw materials territories and regions, the second - the transit ones, since the resources will go all the same to the West, the third and closing ones - those who have no minerals. Here, other analysts, as they say, sum up the base for Moscow, where power is now concentrated: Moscow simply does not have rich resources, as a result it will weaken. True, this territory will have a chance to “build a more efficient economy,” to a lesser extent dependent “on mining”. The Moscow region, apparently, will turn into some kind of special “country”, from where former Muscovites will run to other regions, richer. However, maybe they will not run, but they really build a “more efficient economy”. It will be built outside of oil, gas and other raw materials and beyond the question of increasing military power, since the latter hardly makes sense in a single conventional Muscovy.

Such a picture of the future, apparently, means the long-standing historical desire of a certain "friendship" between Europe and the USA with the Russians. The present Russia seems very big to the West!

You are to blame for the fact that I want to eat ... :) And what is interesting is that there are three types of modern democratic states that sell raw materials at convenient prices, transit goods at convenient prices, a sales market at convenient prices that are absolutely safe (controlled) - I do not see democracy and universal happiness here! And after that, there are still liberals in our country? So the most interesting thing is that yes, and even ideological ones. O woe to me, woe ... Tsar John Vasilyevich, the complete works ...

Be sure to listen and know what they say about us in the West and not only. So that later there was no unpleasant moment (such as missed, because they did not know).

Americans allowed Russians not to attack the Baltic States

According to RAND’s think tank specialist, political scientist Andrew Radin, at present, Russia's foreign policy interests “do not provide any basis for an attack by the Baltic countries.” In the context of foreign policy, Russia's priorities “in other regions” should be of great concern to the West.





Meanwhile, Western hysteria about the "Russian attack" on the three Baltic republics continues.

The other day, member of the Federation Council Franz Klintsevich spoke on this issue.

“There are no full-fledged armed forces that could represent some kind of military force. In order to overcome the border with Russia, NATO must conduct preliminary work. And now she is in the Baltic States, the equipment is being imported, ”the senator explained to the 60 minutes program on the Russia 1 channel.

According to Klintsevich, the conversation of retired Western generals about the war in the Baltic States is a matter of concern: after all, he is preparing public opinion for such a scenario. However, in such a scenario, the Baltic States “will cease to exist”: “I feel sorry for the Baltic States, because it will cease to exist. Thank God it's a fantasy. No one is going to attack anyone. We are neighbors, we are friends with the Baltics. And no one is going to attack anyone. And NATO is not going to attack Russia, since the Russian army is now sufficiently strong. ”

Well, peace, friendship, chewing gum. It is not clear why "the equipment is imported."

As long as NATO exists, the threat of a war will exist. And no matter where: in the Baltic States, in Ukraine, in Syria ...


solzh
I would clarify a bit: as long as the United States exists, there is a threat of war. It is possible to come to an agreement with some countries of the old Europe, such as France and Germany ...

Well, thank God, we are so glad that America has allowed us not to attack the Balts!


Massive blurred mind

US marines prepare for conflict in Eastern Europe: The US Marine Corps is considering the prospect of an armed clash with Russia. In connection with the looming conflict, additional resources will be received by the headquarters of the Expeditionary Force of the Marine Corps.

Lt. Gen. Robert Hedelund (Lt. Gen. Robert Hedelund), commander of the United States Marine Corps in North Carolina, said that the units "must be prepared" to support efforts to counter "the war in Europe."

At the moment, the Corps will continue to prepare and deploy "for a number of missions." The general hints: they say, if somewhere ("anywhere in the world") a shot is heard, "the marines want to be there."

And then there's the new report of the US Department of Defense Intelligence Agency (RUMO). The Office announced the assessment of Russian military power. RUMO concluded that the modern Russian military machine is based on the Soviet legacy, but the possibilities have already been modernized, and with them the military doctrine has been changed. The Russians "modernized their military strategy, doctrine and tactics to introduce the use of asymmetric responses, such as cyber attacks and hybrid actions similar to those observed in Ukraine," the report says. Russia is doing everything to become a “great power” again, the authors say.

Such a report, a well-known analyst D. Majumdar called "crazy." Back in Soviet times, such reports were full of “gross exaggerations”, probably due to the mistakes of American intelligence.





It seems that in the US, not only intelligence officers are crazy. In the Marine Corps, which set out to repel Russian attacks in Eastern Europe, all is not well with the mind.

However, that's what the cold war is for its apologists to demonstrate a massive clouding of reason.

Excellent article!
In the West, they believe that "the Russians are doing everything to become again a" great power. "
Not certainly in that way! First of all, the Russians are doing everything to survive and save themselves from foreign aggression and foreign invaders, as it was during the Second World War! For a great power is first and foremost a sovereign country!


Olgovich
I agree: the Russians, although one thing, to save their country. And the Americans want to "defend" against the Russian "aggression" by invading it.


Evgenijus
Americans want to eat someone else's: oil, gas, diamonds, gold and all the good on planet Earth. Were world gangsters since the time of Columbus and now they are. Their nature has not changed, but their appetites have increased significantly ...

This is the specificity of the Anglo-Saxon mentality. If Russian security is when you are not attacked, then the Anglo-Saxon security is preventive strikes. Their security is achieved by neutralizing the potential adversary in advance.

At one time, while serving in Cuba, one had to watch in the stereo tube of the US Marines in Guantanamo. Nothing outstanding. Blacks and white camouflage with M-16 in hand. Something too much attention is paid to them. And so: lightly armed infantry with the support of the floating armored personnel carriers, naval artillery and, possibly, helicopters, from the sea. We have repeatedly conducted exercises on the reflection of the landing. The landing from the sea effectively uses quadruple KPVT, Shilok, 57-mm anti-aircraft guns, ATGMs and grenade launchers, direct fire from tanks and artillery. If the help of "turntables", then all the class. Upon landing, but not having had time to consolidate and penetrate the landing force, rocket artillery and mortar fire. The main thing - do not give them a foothold. And pull up your heavy weapons, ammunition. And with the ships of fire support, helicopter carriers, etc., the seamans must fight. Fortunately, they now have enough funds for this from both the sea and the coast.

    "Thrush" this one hundred years at lunch. But still. I understand that he was still classified. However, there was infa that the elements of the "Arena" are gone, moreover from us. More precisely, from our homegrown villains .. Regarding the infantry weapons in ruin. What to do, because for them Kalash became non-kosher. At least for an exorbitant price, mice cried, pricked, but continued to eat the cactus ..

      They dream to ruin Russia into pieces

      The eternal pipe dream of the West! If the West did not manage to break Russia into pieces in the 90s, now that Putin has sewed these pieces tightly with his vertical power, put these dreams to hell! Do not see you collapsed Russia, as their ears. Better think about how to protect your EU from collapse.
      Thanks to the authors for the "Results"!

        So we ourselves perfectly cope with our own collapse. There are enough examples. At least take the collapse of the USSR. It may be good that they let Central Asia go, while Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan - half the country sailed away, just like that. And I must say the most developed and best part of the country. We are now a losing empire, such as England, Sweden, Spain, Germany and many others. Each of them was at the peak once, but lost. No empire is reborn. Therefore, from a historical point of view, our chance has long been lost. Now it will be possible to play only in the middle league, and competing with China or the USA is already another weight category. We do not comply with it.

          Colonial empires - yes, do not revive. But the continental ones are reborn: to take the Roman Empire, which collapsed in the 5th century and recovered in the 8th, though not so powerful and existed "only" 200 years. Ancient China and the current resurgent, the same suggests the possibility of a revival of continental empires. The Russian empire will also recover, albeit in a different form and not in the near future, but will be reborn and will be no less powerful. Where were the United States 200 years ago? And where will they be in the same 200 years? Everything flows, everything changes!

            If possible arguments. How will it be restored? Already, we work for 10-12 hours. Salaries at the level of African countries, but not Asia. Maybe suddenly the talented programmers and scientists will stop leaving? Or will corruption disappear from all walks of life? Or will our politicians and businessmen return their children and their capitals to their homeland? How can a country rise? Or will 200 thousand high-tech jobs appear tomorrow? Or will the whole world burn with love for us?

              You're right, I guess, but here I look at the street and somehow I see too many not very budget cars, as well as elite housing that is constantly being built, the prices of which are not falling. So, it’s not quite the way you say it, that means the “average temperature in the hospital” is still quite high, which allows us to judge from the outside, the economic well-being of Russia against the background of sanctions. We know this here that the stratification of society has already reached similar indicators a hundred years ago, before the revolution, but “from there” and for “partners” everything looks much more beautiful ...
              By the way, for us everything can change dramatically for the better only in one case: if Suddenly there is no one to compare with. Yes, I am a realist.

    Thanks to the authors for the review! hi Indeed, "Russians are leaders in everything!" fellow Only Russians, in the opinion of the Ukrainian SBU, managed to make the cat a separatist and agent !!!!! belay belay laughing
    A cat named Pampuh, belonging to the relatives of the journalist Vasily Muravitsky, who is accused by the SBU of high treason, appears in the materials of his criminal case as an “agent”.
    This was reported by Muravitsky’s lawyer Andrei Gozhiy.
    “The investigation from the communication channels recorded information about a certain Pampuha. He was counted as an unidentified person, as an agent. And this is a cat of Vasily's relatives nicknamed Pampuh. This is in the case file, ”said Gozhiy.
    Recall, SBU officers detained Muravitsky in Zhytomyr on 1 on August. He is suspected of treason, an encroachment on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine, violation of the equal rights of citizens, the creation of a terrorist organization.
    According to the SBU, his articles were published on "sites that were administered from the Russian Federation and from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine."
    how the cat became an "agent", said the hostess of the animal - Julia Malkina
    “We are friends with Vasya, so we called up and talked periodically. Yes, including about Pampuha. And last winter we decided to go for a few days to treat Vasya and take the cat with him. At that time, the Security Service of Ukraine, obviously, had long listened to Muravitsky’s telephone conversations, therefore, his promise to receive Pampuha at the highest level took into account and thought that Pampuh was a very serious person, since we always call his callsign only, not like an agent. However, the investigation has not yet established the identity of the agent, so you tell them, if anything, that this is my cat, ”she added

        And where do live contracts come from — not from contracts of intent? Ask a question.
        By the way, the plan was -30 billion more. But they entered into 423 billion. And most will be fulfilled.

    Results of the week. Russian leaders in everything!

    There was an objective reality in which Russian athletes can miss the Winter Olympics ... belay Exhibited photographs about the movement of the ISIS column instead of frames for its destruction. For whom?.. recourse Reduced US lending, but continue to hold debt ... request A fire in a nursing home, a gas explosion in a residential building, a terrible accident on the road ... what Continued mockery of retirees, minimum wages ... stop Maybe this leadership is enough?
    By the way, there is a suggestion ... If some people like the average level (pensions, salaries), let's slowly narrow the gap between the smaller "average" and the upper limit. How? Very simple. We decided to increase the pension by 3%. Well, increase to those who at the time of increase it is below average. Those who have it higher, no increase is made. Then we will live in joy in old age ... all in one. And for those who want to live better, in their young years should be put off for old age ... lol

      Yes, it was already, especially in the 90s - to increase small pensions, and those that were bigger - to keep.
      What we have: I, who worked in the Far North in the trawl fleet the full norm of years, have a less pension than my mother-in-law, who worked all her life in a kastelnik.

    Need a fence and a visa. For racing on Independence should be punished. For the laws I lie - there must be punishment. For the sale of technology - should be punished. For the non-return of 3 billions of debt - should be punished. For the murder of journalists and residents of LDNR - to punish. For natural stupidity and selyukovatost - must be punished.
    Financially punishing let their power (with which they successfully cope, well done) - we need to somehow more original and painful.

    It hurts - how is it?
    Shoot two times and hang once?
    Or prepare aspen stakes more and concreted with a blunt end in the ground?
    Or maybe send them is building a high-latitude railway, from Arkhangelsk to Anadyr?

    This week the news about the screenshots of the video game amused me, at the beginning, and then made me think, it turns out that the mess with us is still present.
    Well, the news upset me

    It goes without saying that Russia has the strongest ground forces in the world. Here it is only necessary to tighten the MTR, and the Special Forces of the Ground Forces.
    As for the Armed Forces ... their army cannot be weak initially, because they are smart people, they are no different from us. The truth is that the part loses, but this will not save the DPR and LPR ... Therefore, we need to introduce at least 12 in Donbass divisions with good air force cover ...

      Oto and identity.
      The results of the week (and many articles on this site) turn into some kind of propaganda message from the time of the Russian-Japanese war.
      We are waiting for the appearance of a photo where the Russian marine Kryuchkov strung to the peak ..... sorry, to the bayonet AK-74, a dozen amers, banderlogs and joined them psheks.
      It is necessary to cite the facts:
      ------ truthful,
      ------ reflecting an existing reality.
      And then, as the Ukrainians with their "we will pan ourselves to our side."
      So here: “and here’s how to build an atomic aircraft carrier in 2030”, “and here’s how to create hypersonic weapons,” “and here’s how to configure PAK FA ........
      Here we configure, create, nashtampuem - then write and enjoy.
      And then purely crests: "our vorozhniki disappear ..."
      Yes, and they have a conscience - they write about the future.
      And we ALREADY "ahead of the rest."
      In 1941, they also thought so: "From the taiga to the British seas, the Red Army is all the stronger ..."
      And then - 5 million prisoners only.
      It should be more modest; hatred is not appropriate here.

      And now?
      Almost all of this was built in Russia in recent years.
      Or is being completed.
      By attaching these "prodigal" ones, it will be necessary to invest crazy money in the restoration of their industry and agriculture.
      Due to our pockets.
      And restore OUR COMPETITORS IN THE WORLD MARKET!
      The export goods of Russia and Ukraine are practically the same: grain, metals, aircraft, weapons, missiles.
      So no shit we restore a competitor in world trade?
