Trump's victory

24
There was such an epirus commander in ancient times - Pierre. First of all, he became famous for his “victory”, which turned out to be no victory at all. Not everyone remembers that he fought against Rome, that he won in 279 BC in the battle of the city of Auskul. But the expression "Pyrrhic Victory" is known to all. Like his bitter words: "Another such victory, and I will remain without troops." So it finally happened.


But what happened as a tragedy is repeated in the form of a farce. It is good to introduce another term - “Tramp victory”. In the sense of - victory, which was not. Or even this: the victory that was, but something completely different forces have achieved it. In any case, one cannot be proud of such a victory - there are even fewer reasons for this than even Pyrrhus.



Speaking December 12 at the White House about the draft law on financing the US Department of Defense, Donald Trump said: “As you know, we won in Syria and Iraq. But they [the terrorists] moved to other places. We intend to destroy them there as fast as they move. Over the past 8 months, we have achieved greater success in the fight against IS, than during the whole period of our previous administration.».

The statement that Washington defeated the terrorists of the “Islamic state” (an organization banned in Russia) is a farce. This is the exaggerated “tramp victory”.

Unfortunately, it is not necessary to say that the “Islamic State” (IG) has been completely defeated. So there is no victory at all. However, there is the following fact: so powerful blows were inflicted on this terrorist organization, that it was considerably weakened and no longer exists as a force that held a large part of Syria and Iraq under its control. True, the danger she still represents, as a mortally wounded beast. But who inflicted such wounds on this “beast”?

The US president is trying to ascribe this merit to himself. The facts show the opposite: Russia's intervention in the Syrian conflict allowed the Islamic State irreparable damage. These are Russian pilots, infantrymen, nurses, officers, soldiers died in this fight. Moreover, on the part of the Russian Federation there was a legitimate intervention carried out at the request of the Syrian leadership. While the United States was there it is not at all clear why.

Not so incomprehensible. Only the answer “why?” Is different. Washington and the coalition led by him acted approximately according to the following principle: “one strike against the“ Islamic state — two attacks against the Syrian army and its allies — a dozen attacks against civilians ”. As a result, all the actions of the Americans and their allies were, by and large, in the interests of the "Islamic state".

Is it necessary to remind once again that without US intervention in Middle Eastern affairs, starting from 2011, there could have been no terrorist organization such as IS?

And Trump is now talking about some kind of "victory" ...

However, this is not the first "Trump victory". A few days earlier, while in the state of Florida, he completely broke out into a pretentious speech in which he attributed other victories to the United States: “We are the nation that dug the Panama Canal, won two world wars, sent a man to the moon and brought communism to its knees».

The "victory" of the United States in two world wars - until such an absurdity, it seems, no one has yet agreed. Especially if you take into account the very modest role of Washington in the First World War. Until 1917, the United States maintained neutrality altogether. They had to somehow participate only after the German submarine sank the British ship Lusitania, which was heading from America to Britain. Anyway, it's hard to say who was the winner in the First World War.

But in the Second World War, the winners, of course, were. But, above all, is the Soviet Union. What then recognized all of Europe. Recognized by our then partners Roosevelt and Churchill. Trump is not here, of course, who is now trying to downplay the role of the USSR. But he too assertively attributes the victory exclusively to the United States, by the way, offending his closest ally — Britain, which also “plowed” (and the main thing, of course, that “plowed the tractor” —USSR!).

As for the fact that "the American nation has put communism on its knees" - this is an absurd statement. Even if a significant blow was struck at the social camp at the end of 80 - the beginning of 90-s of the last century - you cannot bring the idea that continues to live on Earth to its knees. That very idea, under the banner of which, by the way, Hitler's fascism was crushed.

In general, what kind of Trump’s “triumphant” statement is that any will turn out to be a lie.

"Another such victory, and I will remain without an army," Pyrr lamented. About Trump, you can say this: one more such victory, attributed to the States - and all sensible people in the world will laugh at Washington.

        And we won in Afghanistan. He who disagrees is a liberal
        I repeat once again: we Soviet people won the war in Afghanistan. We won a military, political and psychological victory.

        Fake country in a light haze of cannabis. Probably enough for us to pay attention to their cumulative "victories", but simply to solve our problems in silence. Well, sometimes sending them to ... bully

    Trump victory
    Obviously, this expression will really get a ticket to life. Already today, Ukrainians over the Russian Armed Forces can be attributed to “trump victories”, which they have already managed to “defeat” and save Europe.

    yes, the loot defeats evil ... if we do not take advantage of the fruits of military victory, then any crap from cnn will be true soon, for the first time, perhaps, in general, either Putin will continue to personally deal with the issue, or the ulyukaevysiluanovnabiulin medvedev will again miscalculate and surrender to their ideologically close ones FRS colleagues, well, or with whom they suck their gums there so that there is no trouble ...

    There is such a famous English proverb: “If a person is told a thousand times that he is a pig, he grunts for the first thousand times.” That Anglo-Saxons and use it quite skillfully. It will take some hundred years and no one will even doubt their "victories."

      That is how geeks with traitors and rewrote the history of Russia! Lying on lies and lying drives - that’s our story! And for so many years, after Putin’s message, they can’t write a normal history textbook? Everything is distracting us with an omeriky thief kagal in power ...

    the springboard is an amateur wishful thinking ... and even with delusions of grandeur ... only now, with the deflection in front of the God-chosen ones, did the Muslim world go round against himself and his phasingtonia ... and did he manage to push the gunpowder to the owner?

    "... Russia's intervention in the Syrian conflict allowed the Islamic State to do irreparable damage."
    The authors, be careful with the definitions, and do not repeat anything better from the TV, I will remind you that terrorism is a social phenomenon that occurs as a result of the lack of social elevators, social stratification and a drop in the standard of living, so none of the above has changed, so the base will still be replenished

    Here, by the principle of advertising. Posted - it was. Ordinary American people believe that the United States has made an immeasurably greater contribution to the victory over ISIS. They simply motivate - the USA has spent more than 300 times more on this business than the Russian Federation. And you did. If new aircraft carriers are being built, it is completely logical that they are being built to counter a certain external threat. It’s clear what. A new plane cannot be not the best - because it is the most expensive.
    No. They are not stupid. They are somewhat naive. In Ukraine, in less than thirty years, absolutely fantastic results have been achieved in changing public consciousness. And in the USA, how many years are brainwashed?
    So - everything is fine with Trump. Of course, he will not execute the election program (this is normal, otherwise it just doesn’t happen). But. Now he is creating the image of a fighter with their fifth column. Suffering for it, suffering deprivation ... ohhh. The plane over Langley circled not to warn the CIA, but to show who this very column was. And that the army is already for Trump. Great move. Now it would be nice to organize an attempt. And to achieve at least some improvement for the people. For an active, considerate part of the people. After that, you can just show with your finger - these are bad. And they will completely demolish all those who disagree.
