Military Review

And the weather: cold war frosts

25
On the eve of the former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said that he is one of the architects of the world after the end of the Cold War. According to 81-year-old Silvio, he is saddened to see how the foundations of the international cooperation that has been built up and suffered, which fully began with the signing of a partnership agreement between Russia and NATO in Italy in 2002, are crumbling. It was this year that the former, and multiple, Italian Premier (1994-1995), (2001-2006), (2008-2011) called the year the real end of the Cold War and the start of a full-fledged dialogue between Russia and the United States.


Now Berlusconi is concerned about the growing degree of confrontation, which results not only in enormous economic losses, but also in an increase in the level of mistrust both between the United States and Russia, and between the countries of the “united” Europe. Berlusconi believes that it is absolutely foolish to try to reduce contact with each other exclusively in the sanction plane.

After such statements, the rating of Silvio Berlusconi, whose party Forza Italia, in alliance with the Industrial North League, is going to the polls, has once again crept up, making it clear that in Italy there are a lot of those who are not ready for the final departure from the dialogue with Russia and the slide into the abyss of the new Cold War. Today, public opinion analysis services in Italy unanimously give first place to the alliance in the coming elections on the Apennine Peninsula to the alliance led by 81-year-old Silvio Berlusconi.

Such statistics lead NATO partners into the very present rabies. After all, after 4 March (namely, on this day) elections will be held in Italy, the regiment of European “Putinists” may arrive ... And therefore already familiar statements of a group of Euro-Atlanticists are coming that Russia is interfering in the Italian elections. In general, the Euro-Atlantic formula dependence is extremely simple: if, anywhere, a politician utters the word "Russia" even in a neutral context, then Russia has definitely intervened ...

It is noteworthy that several days before Silvio Berlusconi’s statement in the Russian Foreign Ministry noted a clear tendency in the United States for an even greater confrontation with Russia. The official representative of the country's foreign affairs agency, Maria Zakharova, noted that one of the forms of increasing confrontation is the arrest of Russian citizens in foreign countries - at the request of the United States. Moreover, many of these countries are totally dependent on Washington, and therefore, in fact, they are deprived of the opportunity to send at least some independent justice. The Washington car puts pressure on any judicial system in the world, be it the Maldives, Colombia or the Netherlands.

By the way, it was the Netherlands that in 2013, in fact, violating its own legislation on extradition and deportation, issued to the US intelligence services two Russian citizens, who were recently convicted by the New Jersey court of hacking. Vladimir Drinkman, accused of stealing personal data of bank card holders, and Dmitry Smilyants, accused of involvement in hacking activities, were sentenced to 12 years and 4 years 4 months of imprisonment, respectively. At the same time, Smilyants had to be released directly in the courtroom, since he had already “served” his entire term in prison during the investigation.

And in this context it makes no sense to even consider the very question of the guilt or innocence of the Russians. If they are guilty, then the United States has something to do with it? .. And despite the fact that the US jurisdiction for some time extends to any territories where the word "dollar" sounded in a whisper ... And ever since the United States declared itself winners in the cold war.

And forgive me, but we can all together resent as much as the behavior of the United States and hope for the triumph of justice even in Europe “in the person of Berlusconi”, but in fact they treat us as they do with the defeated. This, of course, is extremely disgusting to realize, but for Washington we are a defeated state, whose power and people can think anything of themselves, but this does not change the fact.

While this, unfortunately, manifests itself very, very much. From the oddities of continuing stubborn investment in the American economy (and this against the background of the fact that the US Congress will push the Trump administration to introduce a new portion of sanctions as soon as possible to freeze those or other assets) to the oddity of virtually no response to the state, which Russia is the enemy.

Our diplomats are being searched in the United States almost to his underpants, they break locks and ceilings in diplomatic property, are denied an interview with the head of the embassy, ​​since he is “under sanctions”. At the same time, the ambassador of “His Majesty” the American himself strips down to his underwear and goes “to penetrate the Russian soulfulness” - to plunge into the baptismal ice-hole.

Our journalists are openly harassed by calling propagandists and fakekomotami, and American and British journalists here become the main characters of the endless series of talk shows that "how bad things are in Ukraine and how the West is rotting."

Our Olympians mix with some kind of dirt, sorry, inadequate, and we all try to shout that he is wrong, that he, he says, has a certificate. And to us here it is quite fair - the question in the face of the face: why didn't you know that he had a certificate? If they were put to a high position, it means that they themselves confirmed that everything was fine with ...

And what is there, in fact, you say. Is that hope for universal justice ...

And in general: we are trying to convince whom? The US-British system, for which each of us is a cog in a hostile mechanism trying to somehow interfere with American hegemony? .. Do we still believe that this system will be able to partner on an equal footing? Never, let us at least make up our desire to demonstrate that “we don’t want to answer” and that “we are above all of this”. This romanticism and this humanistic philosophy will completely go down for works of art, but they are at war with us - a real war, continuing to make every effort to make the country crumble, like the USSR used to do. And we are still trying to find and read their rules of the game. Yes, there are no rules! What rules can there be when an opponent on the chessboard has eight queens, five more pockets in his pocket, and this is called "fair play"?

And the weather: cold war frosts


And the “rule” for Russia itself can be only one thing: if you do not develop respect for your own citizens, if you do not defend the interests of citizens anywhere in the world and under any circumstances, then all that remains is to hope that 81-year-old Berlusconi will win in faraway Italy ...

    Whose rules of the game is Russia trying to master in the conditions of the new Cold War, and why is there still no game going on according to its own rules? ..

    There are two interrelated reasons; the top of power in Russia adheres to the ideology of globalism negative and she lacks strategic thinking. fool

    that "we don’t want to answer" and that "we are above all this." This romanticism and this humanistic philosophy are quite suitable for works of art, but they are at war with us
    I completely agree with the author. Honestly, I’m already tired of playing honest, adhering to some norms that no one has been observing for a long time and openly declaring this, a participant of the international platform. We are on the snout, and we are "we are above this," "we are for justice," "we will see how events develop." While we are observing the development of events, we manage to get it on the face several more times. In such a situation, the game of nobility can ultimately lead to complete defeat.

      Perhaps you are right ... but ... behavior on the principle And Vaska listens, but eats. also has a place to be. Ultimately, in terms of military-political confrontation and geostrategy at the moment, we have not seriously lost anything. A swearing on the gate does not hang

        Does not hang, I agree. But does our government understand what a state is and where it really exists? Apparently, like you, they don’t understand anything like that.
        The state is first in the minds of people. This is its source, the main force and the very essence of its existence. As soon as people cease to recognize him in their hearts ... remember, there was such an empire - Austria-Hungary? Well, that is, at first there was Austria, then perestroika came .... And then Austria-Hungary was gone. Yes, they lost the war there. But the empire collapsed is not at all why.
        Our authorities are clearly subject to us. They have different games there. From geostrategy to trivial theft. And we? But we are spectators, and the sight is disgusting. And one day an Important State Order will be given, and in return it will follow - let it go ... Even without anger. Indifferently. And at that moment our country will cease to exist.

"

    Up to this point, the author is all logical, and then the machine stuck ...
    The world of capital and profit is built on competition and wars, where the strong crush the weak. Respected in this world, especially the strong. This strength is expressed in state power, primarily military. The Army and Navy of the USSR was at one time a guarantor of respect for citizens of the Soviet Union abroad. The USSR Armed Forces defending the interests of the State, defended the interests of citizens who, for the most part, served this state faithfully. For citizens of Russia, you need to repeat the example of the USSR, i.e. invest in the state, in its Army and Navy. Without this, neither Berlusconi nor Trump will help. It can not be respected by other peoples, people who do not respect their Leader. Such a people will always be leaders of foreign Varangians: Berlusconi, Trump, etc.
    See the root. There is Putin's Commander-in-Chief of the RF Armed Forces. He needs concrete support and respect from the people in order for such a people to be respected by all the peoples of the Earth.

    Honestly, I would like to see the striped VSA freeze as many assets as possible right before the elections in the Russian Federation, and all funds are better and there is only one. Then, for those holding power, a real moment of truth would come!

    He called the year of the end of the Cold War and the beginning of a full-format dialogue between Russia and the United States.
    She did not end. The Cold War will continue until Russia either disappears or wipes out all of Europe and the North. America In the Cold War, only a temporary truce is possible to confront a common enemy. And this enemy must be so strong as to really threaten not only Europe, but also America. Terrorism does not attract such an enemy. It’s not pulling simply because our “partners” have the opportunity and the temptation to use it for their own purposes. But Berlusconi ... He still will not act contrary to the general policy of the West. Unless it is decided on minor sabotage and nothing more.

    As you always have everything simple. These oligarchs ... he is building a super bridge at an accelerated pace in the Crimea, an airfield in Simferopol, Artek is being rebuilt in a new way, the Crimean energy system has been raised to a new level and not only .., but in addition to Crimea there is still a big Russia, which also has done a lot and done, and which must be protected. And how much is being done for the defense of the country and Crimea forgotten?
    "Your simplicity is worse than theft ..."

      wink Are you not Dvorkovich? He also has all the socially oriented oligarchs. You are lying, they are building it all on our national money and not on their own. Now, if Rotenberg builds the Crimean bridge for his hard-earned prices, he will not. In the meantime, a regular commercial project.

      ...))) everything is so, but about the energy of the Crimea is ridiculous. it’s just that people were waiting for Russia, they were waiting. And now, after the Ukrainian life until 2013, they are shocked by the Russian order and the number of checks. Fair. firsthand.
      And so in your reasoning, everything is logical.

    Do you really think that Putin does not know and does not see? He is acting. And the other candidates should not see anything. Roy Mushin ...
    How many people wanted to steer in the beginning? 64? It remains 8. Soon there will be one. Anyone who thinks that a war is being waged against Russia to destroy the country and its people.

    There can be only one “rule” for Russia itself: if you do not develop respect for your own citizens, if you do not defend the interests of citizens anywhere in the world and under any circumstances, then all that remains is to hope for the victory of 81-year-old Berlusconi in the distant Italy ... "The author is certainly right, but there is nothing to be surprised that they treat us like the vanquished - where is the USSR? Therefore, they relate to this and this must be taken into account, the current balance of power in the world must be taken into account - they are currently objectively stronger and we simply do not have the strength to defend the interests of our citizens anywhere in the world. There are no forces yet, but the process is ongoing and I think in the near future the United States will not be able to arrest Russian citizens around the world.
