Military Review

Neither truth nor the West nor the world order. And all Russian blame!

More than five hundred politicians and experts discuss the crises in the world at the Munich Security Conference. However, it is already clear: Europe has nothing to oppose to Putin.


Neither truth nor the West nor the world order. And all Russian blame!

Video Frame: “Die Welt”


Europe today “has nothing to oppose Putin,” said Michael Stürmer. According to him, expressed in the pages «Die Welt»The world is becoming “increasingly uncertain”, and the Europeans are “waiting for a miracle in foreign affairs.” There will be no such miracle.

Never before have the participants of the Munich Security Conference met with such a “gloomy analysis of the state of the world.” Here are the themes of the conference “in free translation,” the author ironically says: “farewell to the truth, farewell to the West, farewell to world order.”

The dismantling of the world order seems to be accelerating. Today, even the rules of mutual behavior, predictability and strategic compensation that have been preserved since the days of the Cold War are “under pressure”.

Since the double crisis (in Berlin in 1961 and in Cuba in 1962), the danger has never been as high as in these weeks and months, and especially now, Stürmer writes. Exaggeration? No, look Cassandra! And the Troy disaster is near.

But this is a part of state art - to realize crises and impending catastrophes, think over the reaction to them, and also “bravely confront them.”

The author highlights the issue of the effectiveness of the North Atlantic Alliance as a solid foundation for European security and mutual trust. It is NATO that should be a defense “from the return of the ancient demons and the counterweight to Russia,” whose “power elites” have not accepted the loss of the status of a world power, Stürmer believes.

In the meantime, the world order as a whole remains a collection of words without genuine meaning.

So, we should note that Europeans and the whole West in general, including, apparently, the USA, can only be saved from Russian “demons” by unity within NATO and a “courageous” collective response to the Kremlin. The Kremlin will not stop, because the “elites” in Russia are planning to regain their “status”. Probably, in such conditions, even if they are far from reality, it seems to analysts and experts to work out at least some rules of the new world - and a new conference is called for. To return some predictability of the times of the Cold War would be an achievement for today's soft-tempered politicians. Probably, Sturmer hints at this in his material.

      It’s a mistake of the West that they are all trying to “oppose Putin”, have the criminal combined actions of Europeans against Russia in previous wars taught them nothing? It is more profitable to be friends with Russia at least from the instinct of self-preservation.

        “To return some predictability of the Cold War would be an achievement for today's soft-core politicians.” Maybe it’s true. Take for example the 70s. The peak of the Cold War, but politicians agreed somehow. But they didn’t creep ..

          Well, yes, yes ... The world order based on the embezzlement and rampant race of consumers is drowning for some reason, and of course, the Russians are to blame. They planted a mine that they prefer not to kill and steal, but to live in peace and demand money for their resources

        Is it not obvious that the West is dreaming of a return to the Cold War? They dream of repeating the number a second time. The isolation (and demonization) of Russia is an attempt to organize the Iron Curtain 2.0
        In the Cold War, they just got a lesson on how to confront Russia, impose it on all sides and wait for the enemy to degrade from the inside. And in the current conditions of corruption and confusion, they have good chances of success.
        But the laughter is that not only Russia is not okay .. The same circus is happening in the ranks of the West, and this is a good chance of success with us.

        Those who lead this mess, under the names of the EU, NATO, and others, as in the Second World War, hope to sit in quiet backwaters, making money on all sides of the conflict.

    Europe has nothing to confront Putin.
    - How not? And our power liberals ?! With these bad guys, the West, because of its complete degradation, can not find a common language. And then they are always ready ...

      In principle, Aloizovich rose in Germany when they tried to drive her below the baseboard!
      "Collective West" does not remember history either. An uncle across the ocean will profit from any fear, misfortune, hysteria of his vassals ... and the war, if sho, brought uncle Sam to babosiks, not small ones, always !!! Well it's great for them to set fire to a fire somewhere overseas !!! and Uncle Sam’s raking paws and reach out from across the ocean!
      For us, the anologies with Germany are not acceptable, their gov-sh-west west naf didn’t rest against us, they just make us a horror story for the whole world with deb-deb-th stubbornness !!! Done on all sides and think that we will be in front of them on the circles .... waiting for them a big bummer!

    NATO should be a defense "against the return of ancient demons and a counterweight to Russia"
    So the defense in words exceeds all norms, but in reality, apart from 2% and the retraction of American weapons, nothing. "Demons" have long been sitting in NATO and the governments of Western countries. It is enough for a stunner to look at his chancellor and think with his head.

    To bring back some predictability of the Cold War would be an achievement

    If for this you need to say goodbye to some politicians - then half the trouble,
    but if chaos has already entered an uncontrollable stage, it will not seem a little

    To begin with, it would be nice for the author to pull up the Russian language ... Well, the translation is messing up, but you can write phrases in Russian normally ... Ugh ... "Europe today" has nothing to resist Putin " , considers ... "it is necessary to manage to write so. It seems that they write people whose Russian is the second ...

    Too sharp for the correct perception of information: "" there is nothing that could resist Putin. "
    This is akin to "overload" from Hillary Clinton. It sounds like a reboot, but the meaning is radically different.
    It is not clear who is to blame for such phraseology - the author of the article (he didn’t see anything like it before) or Michael Stürmer, nevertheless, but I really want to correct this mistake so that the phrase fits smoothly and smoothly in the brain.
    There are two options: 1. "there is nothing that could be opposed to Putin"; 2. "There is nothing to confront Putin with."

    Maybe Putin wins by not opposing anyone, but by doing his job? When you act according to your honor and conscience, you will always win (for some it is debatable). However, the result is visible.

    and Europeans "expect a miracle in foreign affairs"

    And European politicians do not care about internal affairs, their fshat owners are not holding for this.
    And the catastrophe of Troy is near.

    The fall of Carthage laughing
    And they probably already think under someone new to lie down after.

    The stubbornness with which "analysts" and politicians refuse to consider the situation in the world from a different angle is amazing. Rod through, defending only his "truth" and vision. In this case, the situation will only worsen and their own efforts will lead to a war in which there will be no right, guilty, winners and losers
