Marc Galeotti repented. "Gerasimov Doctrine" he invented

46
The eminent political scientist repented of a military sin. A world-renowned scientist apologized for the “Gerasimov doctrine” invented by him. Marc Galeotti admitted that the “Gerasimov doctrines,” which in the West were interpreted as the “expanded theory of modern war,” do not really exist.



Gerasimov is. And there is no doctrine!


Eminent political analyst Mark Galeotti in Foreign Policy magazine finally admitted that he simply invented the concept of the “Gerasimov Doctrine”. The fiction was to draw the attention of readers to the speech of the Russian high-ranking military leader. Mr. Gerasimov only sought to comprehend the "Arab Spring", "color revolutions" and "Maidan."

The “threat” to the West is often referred to, referring to the “Gerasimov Doctrine”. Allegedly, this doctrine consists of a new way of waging war, and even represents a “expanded theory of modern war”, and even “a vision of total war”. And yet this doctrine does not exist, the site claims the statement by Mark Galeotti "InoTV".

Marc Galeotti, senior researcher at the Institute of International Relations in Prague, admitted that he had “invented the Gerasimov Doctrine at the time when he was put on the table the translation of Valery Gerasimov’s article published in the Russian Military Industrial Courier. Galeotti published a translation of this article in his own blog, attaching comments to it. The eye-catching headline read: "The Doctrine of Gerasimov." The title was created only to attract the attention of readers. And the readers took Gerasimov's translated reasoning as a draft military action against the West!

Now the political scientist declares: Russia has no single doctrine at all. Russians have neither an organizational principle, nor a single body that would control the implementation of such a doctrine. The goal of the Kremlin’s actions is demoralization and disunity, but the policy itself is “opportunistic, fragmentary, and sometimes even contradictory,” and “political entrepreneurs” are taking action in this area who want to curry favor with the Kremlin. And from a military point of view, these actions can not be perceived.

For Russia, there can be no talk of waging war with NATO, since NATO is a coalition of richer democracies; Russian economy is something comparable with the economy of Canada. Modernization of the Russian army is too expensive, it is not over. In addition, the Kremlin is already stuck in the "two wars." Russia, according to Galeotti, has to resort to “political war”, that is, to “use all the means at the disposal of the state, with the exception of the military, to achieve its national goals.”

So, we note, the famous political scientist frightened half of the planet with the “Gerasimov Doctrine” - the plan of modern military actions, which actually does not exist. Donald Trump and Europeans are rapidly arming themselves, from day to day waiting for the Russians to fulfill their terrible plans, while the Russians continue to live peacefully.

The moral of this story is: do not read the headlines.

    Yes, it would be better for Valery Vasilyevich to have a doctrine, it would be better. As previously taught in chess, play without a plan at all, worse than playing the wrong plan. Well, in general, the military genius, clearly representing the role of various troops and military equipment, both in the protection of national interests and, if necessary, in the defense of Russia itself, would not hinder it.

        It seems that Vladimir Vladimirovich is not very keen on military affairs, the same Joseph Vissarionovich supervised and was much more interested, well, and such as Napoleon Bonaparte, in his time, especially ... We would have had our own Guderian or such as Oleg Aleksandrovich Losik, for a new armored strategy it didn’t hurt to have the right place. "Collective intelligence", this type instead of one captain on the ship a few, no, not necessary. The Supreme, as well as the Minister of Defense, must be individuals who, if they don’t know what they themselves, then are well oriented in perspective, in a strategic vision, in the sense of progressive ideas and the selection of smart, talented comrades. I would like Russia to find such individuals, at the right time, and in the right place.

          Each Guderian had a headquarters, not for the closest.
          In our time, a good helmsman is good, only a navigator, a radio operator, an assistant will not be superfluous.

    I don’t know whether V. Gerasimov or not read the work of V. Demin “Armed struggle”, written back in the 90s of the last century, but the conclusions about current international politics and the forms and methods of solving acute issues used in it coincide. But this Galyun-oti did not read it, and, apparently, was scared that his world fame might fade if he did not ascribe himself to the link with the name of the NSh General Staff of the RF Ministry of Defense. And his faded conclusions about Russia are a miserable, backward, primitive Amerz platitude, on which you won’t earn world fame, well, if only, in your local talkers.
