        Republican Republican Mack Thornberry, Head of Congressional Armed Forces Committee the idea of ​​“containing Russia” in Europe on a CONSTANT basis

        Successful TEMPORAL “occupation” by its US forces of any country subordinate to itself with the help of the so-called "soft power" has the strategic goal of the United States as a world colonizer to always grow into PERMANENT.

        Not at all. So the US is occupying Europe. It will be a whole, united, with a strict subordination to a single center, the US military base.

      When civilians greet the military, they can do anything - even salute the left back. If, in the US military tradition, salute the bare head - a flag in your hands and a pipe from the steamer - go and blow, no question. In the photo, US Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James and the guard of honor. This is not a civilian "cocotte", from the sidewalk welcoming handsome hussars passing by. In fact, she bypasses the line of subordinates dressed in full dress. She is the Minister of War. She, in fact, the commander of these military. And this toad, shabby with life, allows itself to go around in a stolen form, even putting a hand to the head. She is not my minister and the soldiers in the photo are strangers to me. But even looking at me, I am ashamed of their country. And I understand why they even lose local wars. Sorry, but you started playing tolerance and multiculturalism. And such a loose woman before the formation turns the soldiers into exactly the same. If their minister can, why shouldn't they?

          Paradise is not only the Fleet. Its whole country is impatient what
          Eyewitnesses spoke a lot about Raisa Gorbacheva’s self-will - people from the guard and the servant. For example, the security chief, Colonel Viktor Kuzovlev, recalls how Gorbachev appeared at noon at an important meeting scheduled for 11.00. And his wife was important next to him, and then, without a shadow of doubt, she sat down with scientists, specialists, and leadership at the table. It turned out that the secretary general was late because of his wife - she was going for a long time! The first lady quickly got used to the fact that all her orders and whims were carried out implicitly. For example, the head of the 9th Directorate (security service) Yuri Plekhanov literally had no rest from her: Raisa Maksimovna got used to calling him many times a day, demanding increased attention, taking advice on every trifle. Plekhanov was so tired of such exactingness, of the position of the toy in the hands of the Secretary General’s wife, that he asked for resignation or transfer, and later joined the GKChP members who rebelled against Gorbachev. The personal cook of the Gorbachev family, Evgenia Ermakova, told how often Raisa Maksimovna brought her to tears with her conflicting orders. For example, I ordered dinner by 14.00:XNUMX p.m., but until the last minutes the cook could not agree on a menu with her - Gorbacheva pulled a decision, and only the cook’s skill allowed her to overcome the situation with honor, but how many nerves it cost her! At the request of Raisa Maximovna to each country , to every foreign city where she went with her husband, domestic cars were delivered on airplanes - especially for her so that she could ride them with a personal chauffeur. This, of course, was very expensive for the state.

          It seems that Paradise is the rule, not a hunchback. hi

            but he didn’t hide that henpecked and didn’t make one important decision without consulting her

      Your optimism is also incomprehensible in a playful way. Yes, and many other commentators clearly do not shine.
      These and fairly constant statements by the American side need to be taken seriously. After all, we are talking about what directly concerns each of us, and in America, such figures have the legislative power in their hands. The point is not to let Europe go sailing independently and to sift through its independent position in the near future. So that there is no step to the right or left. NATO troops are already at our Russian border, and you are all funny.

        Yes, we are funny for a lot!
        For our power, for our press ... and further on the list!
        We have already passed this, and nothing, have become a GREAT POWER.
        The power was different, popular, and the people were different ... everything is true, but this literally arose from nothing, and now only remember and follow in the footsteps of our ancestors !!!

    advocated "containment of Russia" on an ongoing basis

    There would be a desire, but there is always a reason. And the United States has a great desire to spread rot on all "fronts". Therefore, even today surrender to the United States, as some liberals suggest (not to argue, make concessions, cut military spending, etc.) tomorrow they will bury you anyway. Therefore, if you want to exist, learn to resist the enemy with minimal losses.

    Russia strengthens its borders, Supports the army to repel any aggression, and this is perceived as aggression outside the puddle, and they want to constantly annoy us and shit. Such figures have already been, they need to learn history.

    It’s normal that such a new cold war is to deplete and ruin Russia. Their goals are more than clear.

    Mr. Obviousness, but was the “open all roads for Russia” process at least short-lived? The ability of politicians to speak is not clever, but at least something when asked always reminded me of bunches on snow-white china
