Military Review

"We have long been silently retreating ..."

135
The policy of appeasing the aggressor has once proved its complete incapacity and turned into colossal sacrifices for our people and all of humanity.




In some Russian editions, words of gratitude were voiced by US Permanent Representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, for her direct admission: Russia will never be a friend to the USA. Like, you can now breathe a sigh of relief. At last everything became clear! And those who harbor illusions about the possibility of becoming friends with America are now cruelly confounded and roughly punished for their naivety.

Meanwhile, in my opinion, such a "discovery of America" ​​could have been accomplished only by a completely brainless idiot. If we assume that such people are generally found in Russia. Because Haley said absolutely nothing new compared to what we have known well since at least the middle of the 19th century, when the then British Prime Minister Palmerston uttered the following coined phrase: “England has no eternal allies and constant enemies - only hers are eternal and constant. interests! ".

I will say even more: there is not a single sovereign country in the world (Ukraine does not count), which is true to anything and anyone other than its own interests. So if someone in Russia, because of his own stupidity or the desire to deceive his neighbor, propagated such obvious nonsense, and now he was disappointed in him, then he needs to see a doctor.

The United States demonstrates an absolutely natural policy for any state — strict adherence to its own interests as they understand them. At the moment, they are fully confident that Russia must be crushed with all its might until the desired result is squeezed out. Why are they so sure of this, I will not say for sure. Perhaps they are betting on the internal scrapping of the Russian elite, which has been restrained by the sanctions, which, they say, all as one, will take up arms against Putin and overthrow the Russian power hated by America.

Or maybe they interpreted as a sign of the obvious weakness of the Russian Federation, the goodwill of Moscow and its desire to settle relations, even in those cases when the States themselves, by virtue of their warlike traditions, would have started throwing Tomahawks a long time ago.

Anyway, they continue to build up pressure in the clear conviction that this is the best strategy for Russia today. As part of this course, things that are unprecedented for Russian-American relations, not to mention Soviet-American times, are happening today.

For example, the other day, the American White House announced with admiration for ease that it would continue to prepare for the meeting between Trump and Putin, despite the regular sanctions imposed against the Russian Federation.

Translating this Washington casuistry into normal Russian, this means that for the first time in stories relations of the two countries, the United States intends to prepare a summit in an atmosphere of blackmail and pressure on Moscow, apparently considering this as the most suitable background for such a summit. Is it necessary to clarify that not a single Soviet and, let us hope, not a single Russian leader, would never under any circumstances go to a meeting in such humiliating conditions of naked foreign dictate. What would mean nothing more than Moscow’s full acceptance of such arrogant American behavior. And an unprincipled readiness, despite the obvious lawlessness on the part of overseas counterparts, to continue to conduct a constructive dialogue with Washington.

It is clear that the United States views its sanctions attacks on Russia precisely as the right background for a future summit. And they very much expect to turn it into a platform in order to document the kneeling position of the Russian Federation. It happened once with Gorbachev, why not try one more time?

By the way, in overseas the news Preparation of such a meeting is dominated by the theme of calling Putin “on the carpet” to the White House, which is a common practice of the American hegemon in dealing with his vassals, clients and other second-rate, in the US opinion, characters.

Where a horse with a hoof, there and cancer with claws. Washington’s rampant pressure on Russia is becoming a model of behavior for American geopolitical mongrels, such as the Ukrainian puppet regime. The recent unprecedented act of state maritime piracy, the seizure of the Russian fishing vessel with the whole crew in international waters of the Sea of ​​Azov, is a direct continuation of this American policy, and perhaps even a direct request from Washington in the intention to once again “feel Russia over the udder”.

There is no reason to doubt that this is a test action designed to test the possibility of delivering new unpunished strikes in the Russian Federation. For the Kiev regime itself, this is generally what the doctor prescribed. Because for him a confrontation with Russia, up to a full-scale war, is the only chance to extend his days. For in peacetime, this absolutely dead-end regime for Ukraine is completely doomed.

To expect from our overseas "partners", not to mention their local chain dogs, that one day they suddenly give way to anger at the mercy, and start just like that, live well, offer friendship and love to Russia instead of sanctions and total suppression , can only complete and hopeless idiot. Like those who still believe in the possibility of some kind of platonic "friendship" of different states, Russia and America or someone else.

Yes, the motives of the leadership of the Russian Federation, which with the utmost restraint reacts to enemy provocations, are completely understandable. Russia, like any other normal country, capable of earning a living by honest labor, even if it is a disreputable sale of its own resources, is not interested in confrontation, and even more so in war. There is no “Russian aggression” - this bogey, invented by Western propaganda, in order to shift the responsibility of the West to support the armed coup and the overthrow of the legitimate power in Ukraine, does not exist in nature. That is why Russia seeks to limit as much as possible the negative effect of the aggressive actions of the West in Ukraine and prevent its escalation into an opposition of too large scale.

But does this strategy work in conditions when the geopolitical adversary is set up exactly the opposite - on the full kindling of confrontation and on the organization for this purpose of more and more new provocations? In this sense, there is no doubt: if the Kiev regime and its Washington owners get away with its current act of international robbery in the form of stealing Russian fishermen into captivity, the next one will not take long to wait.

And it can be anything, from the breakdown of energy cooperation between Russia and the countries of Western Europe to torpedoing, even at the very last moment, the World Cup in Russia. And from the arrest of Russian property abroad to the announcement of all Crimean residents on the international wanted list as state traitors, with their arrest and extradition to Ukraine in the event of any departure from the Russian Federation.

Today, a lot of things are being offered as a reaction to the same bandit actions of the Kiev regime against Russian sailors. From the counter arrest of the Ukrainian courts in this area to the complete blockade of the city of Mariupol from the sea, which paralyzes the export of products of its metallurgical plants - until all the prisoners are released without any conditions and judicial decisions.

It’s not for me to give advice to the Russian leadership on how to act in this situation. Putin’s state wisdom, his ability to accurately calculate his steps, choosing the best time and place for them, are well known and have been proven in practice more than once. That is why those completely understandable and fair emotions that all normal people experience at the sight of the bandit lawlessness that is going on in relation to Russia should not obscure our mind. Because, quite possibly, it is precisely such purely emotional and poorly calculated reactions from Moscow that are waiting to catch the Russian Federation on some kind of purely emotional breakdown.

But you should always remember about the other side of the coin. Once, in June 1941, we did exactly the same thing. That is, they stubbornly did not succumb to the provocations that the Nazis regularly arranged for the Soviet Union. And what did you get in the end? And they got that Hitler was so convinced of his own impunity that he declared our country a colossus on clay feet and ordered his troops to defeat the USSR within two to three weeks.

I will not remind you of the cost of which victims our people managed to convince the demoniac Fuhrer of the Third Reich, who was convinced of our inability to give the Nazi aggressor a fitting rebuff. And God forbid us to bring the self-confidence of the present West to Hitlerite proportions. Because the correction of this error will cost even more blood than last time. If after this on Earth there will be someone to sum up.Read more...

    And again about the "wisdom of Putin" ... More than once proved ... In order to prove something by this (waiting for the moment, but for some reason he suddenly doesn’t come), one has to sit for more than a dozen years waiting for the enemy’s corpse floating .... I don’t see (proved more than once) neither in the Donbass, nor in Syria, nor in the international arena. Tell me, is there a howl? It’s standing and will stand anyway .. And that’s not what it means we are CORRECTLY doing everything. so CORRECTLY AND WISE that this howl would be a verse .. By the way, in the midst of the Cold War, the Zashtatov president was drawn to Brezhnev in Vladivostok. I’m talking about Brezhnev’s wisdom, but the fact itself says a lot.

          Good afternoon, dear Tatar 174, alas, I don’t know your name. This whole situation reminds me very much of the beginning of the summer of 1941 ... Do not succumb to provocations! Of course we will be economically crushed, this is our weak point, I hope it won’t reach the war.

            Why do you call this economic pressure? Do not you find that they do exactly what we ourselves must do? It is we who must abandon their goods and money, since this is our sworn enemy. That we must remove our diplomats and reduce representation. While they say "we do not want to deal with them." So this we must say. Sanctions are in our favor. How can you trade with a fierce enemy and ask him for money in loans. Is this normal for you ??? And about 41 .. what exactly do you think is the same? I do not see a single sign. I have one indicator, while the children of Lavrov and all kinds of Zheleznyakov-Mizulin study and live in Europe - the tales about 1941 are for the naive Uncle Vasya from the backwoods.

              Dear, this is not normal for us, but for our "elite" in the first generation, apparently, everything is necessary! How can a country withdraw all reserves invested in mattresses at once ?! The country's elite is formed by more than one generation, the principles of social responsibility, rational behavior in different situations, a culture of speech and much more are laid in children from childhood Where are the children of our oligarchy brought up today? That's it! And where will the principles consonant with our mentality come from? Well, and in comparison with the 41st and the current situevina, I do not see any contradictions in the fact that the aforementioned children will remain there until they bury them there, this will in no way affect the actions of our liberals, unless, when they bake, they themselves children will begin to bring down!

        Brezhnev did not beg FOR ANYTHING from Ford. Before that, three times — in 1972, 1973 and in mid-1974, Brezhnev met with Nixon, and it was then that the foundations of detente were laid. And the meeting with Ford (Nixon resigned in August 1974 due to the Watergate scandal) was among these meetings, he simply logically continued detente. At this time, the USSR had already reached parity with the Americans in nuclear weapons, the Helsinki Agreement had already been concluded, and the United States had gigantic problems domestically and in the international arena due to the Vietnam War, and further ways to resolve the international situation had to be outlined. What has been done. It was a rather ordinary meeting among the previous meetings.
        And the legend about Grechko’s statement is just a legend. He did not scold Brezhnev at the Politburo, and he could not do that. Detente began in 1972, and Grechko became a member of the Politburo only in 1973. If he opposed detente, he would not become a member of the Politburo!
        There is another legend - that Grechko sharply objected to the assignment to Brezhnev of the marshal's rank. And even the phrase allegedly said - only through my corpse. And almost immediately after his death in April 1976 - also in 1976, but before his 70th birthday, Brezhnev received the title of Marshal. hi

          Dmitry, it’s just that every historical event has its own background and it’s not worth considering something exaggerated. The 70s were very rich in political events. In February 73, the dollar devalued by 10%, in February Great Mao threw himself into the arms of the USA, in March the last American soldier left Vietnam, in May the European Economic Community imposed sanctions against England due to the sale of butter to the Soviet Union, in September Pinochet comes to power in Chile, the Doomsday War begins in October, in response to the threat of a Soviet invasion of the Middle East, the United States put its armed forces on alert. Well, to everything else, the entire 73 year, the Jewish lobby has been steadily drowning President Nixon, Leonid Ilyich’s best friend!
          And this is only one year from 70's!

        Friends, are you doing this by inertia, or by malice ?! In Soviet times, all negotiations were conducted on an equal footing! Nobody begged anyone, what kind of nonsense ?! At that time, we were really afraid! Here is an excerpt from the materials on the moment you described: "Minister of Defense Grechko menacingly said that if such an agreement is concluded, the military will take responsibility for the country's security. Brezhnev was indignant: how dare Grechko blame the Secretary General for forgetting the interests of his homeland? Andrei Antonovich then he called, apologized. Brezhnev answered him evil: "That will not work. He called him a traitor at all, but you take the words back silently." Well, the phrase about “costing him dearly” was said only in relation to Brezhnev’s health - he was nervous because none of the military wanted a disarmament agreement. And the main problem was the collegial decision-making, in contrast to the mattress-like, it delayed the decision-making, but took into account the interests of all branches of government, and therefore the country.

          Let's omit the rhetoric about nonsense and try to understand this issue.
          In the 1963 year, the USSR began importing grain for the first time, negotiations between the Soviet leadership and David Rockefeller in the format of the Dartmouth conferences began even earlier. In fact, the first grain purchases were the result of Khrushchev’s reforms in agriculture. After 10 years, a branch of Chase Bank was opened in Moscow, Rockefeller through this bank began lending to the USSR for the purchase of grain in the USA, Canada and Argentina at lower than market prices. In the same 73, the OAPEC countries impose an oil embargo against European countries, Canada, Japan and the USA, which opened the gates of Soviet oil to the Western market, moreover, the KAMAZ auto giant was built with 4 of the year with a large share of American capital and all this against the backdrop of the Republican presidency Nixon and his good personal relations with Brezhnev. At the end of 73, Nixon essentially overthrew the Jewish lobby and Ford Democrat becomes president, and who rules Democrats? The worst "friend" of Russia is Rothschild! It was for this reason that Brezhnev really needed a meeting with Ford to confirm the former agreements with the former president!

    Once, in June 1941, we were already doing exactly the same thing. That is, they did not stubbornly yield to the provocations that the Nazis regularly arranged for the Soviet Union. And what did you get in the end? And they got the fact that Hitler was so sure of his own impunity that he declared our country a colossus on clay feet and ordered his troops to defeat the USSR within two to three weeks.

    An absolutely illiterate assessment of the situation in June 1941. Germany had a fully armed, equipped and mobilized army. The USSR re-equipped and deployed its army at that moment. And Hitler made the decision to attack the USSR long before June 1941. Comparison is completely inappropriate.

        The entire Soviet-Finnish war lasted 3 months, which is not very long. Losses for offensive operations of this kind in WWII and WWII were standard. The decision on the Barbarros plan was made by Herr Hitler at the end of 1940, when it failed to take your Fed owners “to fright” and make peace. For the war with your Fed owners and their slaves on the periphery of the European Union, No. 1 needed even more powerful Navy and Air Force, and the multi-million-strong Wehrmacht had to remain “out of work”, and this was a huge load on the economy and it had to either be demobilized or used to solutions to some important problem. Since the USSR, according to Herr Hitler, should still be destroyed, they decided to start at the moment when the Wehrmacht is at the peak of its power. It was only later, in memoirs, that Hitler’s generals were all completely against the decision.

      April - ??? 2018, the United States possesses armed forces equipped with the most advanced weapons in the world, some of which are only being developed in other countries, including in Russia, for a long time delivered to the US Armed Forces; economic power, backed up by the military, allows the United States to dictate terms to the whole world (or they think it allows). The United States has been waging limited wars continuously for nearly 20 years.
      Russia is re-equipping its army, units (at best, dozens) of units of advanced and relatively advanced equipment (on a scale of tens, or even hundreds of times smaller than what was done in the USSR, which had the same task of resisting the possible US aggression, but was economically much more powerful than Russia), the number of Russian armed forces is almost half that of the US army, and for some types of armed forces - by several times. And in what did you see the absolute illiteracy of this comparison? In my opinion, the situation is very similar, if we hadn’t had nuclear weapons and ICBMs, it would have been June 41, and not now, but earlier. And only the rockets hold back the aggressor, but he spoils and will continue to spoil until he is sure that we have the will to press the button ... or doesn’t reach, then he will attack. In the meantime, we provoke his further similar behavior: we write friends of the country that shot down our plane, look for some ridiculous excuses that we didn’t fill up the carriers, since the missiles launched on our ally were launched from the airspace of a third country, similarly we look for excuses for the United States who killed PMC soldiers (such as a few people, and even if you call them exclusively mercenaries, there seems to be no problem, there is no question, and here the state), quietly (so that you can’t hear!) we are protesting against the capture of our citizens anskih vessels supplying gas and diesel fuel the country, has declared us to the aggressor, the accepted meaning of its existence in opposition to us. Personally, I am ashamed! You think they don’t despise us ?! And how! But guessing for now, if there is any crazy person who, when the "elite" merges and merges, does not press the coveted-forbidden button, having taken possession of it ?! They ceased to respect us because with our behavior in recent months we have erased from the memory of the West the march of our paratroopers in Pristina, the answer of the insolent Georgia in August 2008, Crimea! Remember Georgia and Crimea. Is the poisoning of the Skripals in the eyes of the West a greater “crime” than Georgia and the Crimea ?! But then no one dared to bring the confrontation to such a degree; no one sent our diplomats en masse. And the West also knows that the interests of our "elite" and well-being are closely related to it. And he has the right to think that at a critical moment these personal interests will outweigh. And I have the right to think so. And beware of that! The day before yesterday stood on the verge of war. No one knew whether or not there would be. So what? Was anything done to protect the population, some kind of mobilization of moral, at least, society?

      I understand that a pessimist is a well-informed optimist, but in this case I see no reason to argue that Russia will be bent at the upcoming summit. The United States is increasing sanctions in order to make them the subject of bargaining at the upcoming summit. Only they do not take into account the fact that we will not exchange either Syria or Urkain. Moreover, the United States is now seriously concerned about the rapprochement between Russia and China in matters of economics and military cooperation, which poses a much greater threat to the United States than the loss of oil fields in Syria, the loss of control over Urkaina, or the construction of Nord Stream-2. So why not crack up with Trump about our mournful deeds face to face. I think that the GDP has not weak negotiating positions and good arguments in order to put mattresses in place.

I do not think that the summit is being prepared so that the gross domestic product with red ginger drank some tea and remained at its own interests. They will bargain.

      Dear Konstantin Viktorovich. I agree with you. I will add. Vladimir Putin is known as a person who does not make sudden movements. It seems that he will wait until the last moment and delay the moment the decision is made. The decision will be made only when there is complete confidence in the final result of the selected action or when inaction will threaten disaster. We will wait for what external or internal forces (influences) will force Vladimir Putin to make a “historical” decision. (M. Khazin suggests - Putin can make a "left turn"). I’m not sure that Putin is capable of this.

    It is not known what is better. You can run into conflict and get complete isolation. The general policy of "embedding" in the world system is the only correct one. Well, Russia alone cannot resist everyone - this is not the USSR. It can only if all neighbors, Ukraine and Belarus, and Kazakhstan are united. Then with such a population and resources you can go against everyone and have nothing to worry about. And now, while the issue with Ukraine is not resolved, it makes no sense to butt. But national interests are still upheld, the United States and the Saxons must be trolled in front of the whole world, create and inflate situations, constantly accuse them to defend themselves, and not vice versa.
    But Putin’s task, as I understand it, is to take control of the main oil and gas routes in Asia Minor and Europe, as well as the Arctic, which will lead to an inevitable increase in influence in the coming decades. Here he does not back down - this is what drives our "partners" out of himself, because they also understand this and are trying to prevent such a scenario.

      The place of the Russian Federation in the world system built by the Fed owners "at the bucket". It apparently suits you, I do not. If you wait, and DO NOT SOLVE the issue with the former Ukraine, then it will be decided as it should by the Fed owners, that is, against us. The DPRK moves the owners of the Fed up and down, and their capabilities are just an explosion of nuclear warheads in a submarine in the harbor of Los Angeles and the delivery of 1-2 SBNs to the nesting site of the Fed owners. And the country, which is able to multiply all the euro and the mattress by 0, and from the nesting place of the Fed’s owners to make the Stalin Strait, always expresses “concern and understanding”. The reasons for this behavior of the oligarchy of the Russian Federation are understandable, but this makes the soul even more abominable.

    That is, they did not give in stubbornly to provocations,

    I do not remember a single case when Russia gave an adequate response to provocations from 1990 to 2018 (except for the reciprocal expulsion of diplomats, and that was only because it was supposed to be done that way). Even in such a standard situation as the reciprocal expulsion of diplomats, the Americans were delayed for 7 months.

    Yes, the motives of the leadership of the Russian Federation, which reacts with utmost restraint to enemy provocations, are completely understandable. Russia, like any other normal country, capable of earning a living by honest labor, even if it’s an unreasonable sale of its own mineral resources, is not interested in confrontation, and especially in war.

    Let's not simplify everything to the level of kindergarten. Russia is still silent not because it can earn a living with its labor. Firstly, while she earns far not by labor, but by the natural resources provided to us by our ancestors and the Soviet Union. And secondly, the question, in principle, must be considered on the other hand.
    Any sanctions and assaults, including military and political, have two fields of application. External and internal. And the struggle is on both fields at the same time.
    Let's start with the inner field. We have the following problems:
    1) Part of the population, especially in so-called the "elites" are still oriented toward the West, believing that our problems are related to our Asian stupidity, that we must become Europe and we must reach out to our "partners" apologizing and indirectly transferring our resources under their jurisdiction through the oligarchs. And then we will live ...
    There are no options for the authorities to convince these people of the opposite. This is the fifth column, which can only be defeated by the total fact of their wrong. The growing pressure so far without an answer from our side gives Putin an unexpected Joker - the USA, in a voice of Hailey, says that we will never be friends, i.e. We’ll be eternal enemies, because the United States wants it. For the fifth column of authority, this cannot be higher. Thus, from the point of view of the consolidation of Russian society, Putin receives leverage, which under other conditions could not exist in principle. Those. in fact, for the time being it is beneficial to us.
    2) Changes in the economy. Sanctions instill the brains in order. Especially in terms of domestic consumption, technology development, improving production efficiency, training specialists and optimizing financial flows. There is no other way to make domestic business rebuild. sanctions are also useful here.
    3) Change in domestic politics. Well, Sobchak’s appearance in the elections and her support at the vote puts everything in its place. We are not Europe, we are Eurasia. And Europe is a special case of Eurasia.
    It takes time, and while the West works for us. You need to be patient, because you cannot climb with your rights to the external field until the problems on the internal have been resolved.

    External field.
    Over the past century, the West has built such a world order that it is not realistic to find its place in a truly sovereign state. If you want to sell, give independence. A huge number of international organizations in the form of the WTO, IMF, WB, UN, controlled by the United States, which are designed to destroy anyone who wants to "live their work."
    It seems to be a complete dead end, but, as it turns out, without a resisting opponent, the Western world begins to devour itself. Everything the United States does is starting to destroy all these international suppression tools. The US wants to control everything directly, rolling in duties and sanctions to both its "allies" and strangers. As a result, the effectiveness and significance of all these WTO-IMFs with their courts and rules is rapidly declining and there comes a situation of violation of the rules by everyone and everything. This does not mean that you need to be patient or immediately climb on the rampage, it is important here not to make sudden movements and not to interfere with the West in its destruction of its own system of governing the world. Let them fight each other. We, of course, will also fly in, and not weakly, but now is not the time to climb with an open visor. For at the time of our sudden movements, the West will begin to consolidate again against a single enemy. Incidentally, this also applies to defense issues.
    My opinion is that we need to wait until the moment when we can propose new rules in a situation where old ones will already be irrevocably destroyed. And the political, economic and military landscape in a few years will be completely different.

All statements by the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the RF Ministry of Defense have only an internal effect. Take the blinkers out of your eyes and look at the real problem: we are a divided people, Ukraine is part of Russia gnawed by the "West", which has become the "West" resource.

    Once, in June 1941, we were already doing exactly the same thing. That is, they did not stubbornly yield to the provocations that the Nazis regularly arranged for the Soviet Union. And what did you get in the end? And they got the fact that Hitler was so sure of his own impunity that he declared our country a colossus on clay feet and ordered his troops to defeat the USSR within two to three weeks.

    An absolutely illiterate assessment of the situation in June 1941. Germany had a fully armed, equipped and mobilized army. The USSR re-equipped and deployed its army at that moment. And Hitler made the decision to attack the USSR long before June 1941. Comparison is completely inappropriate.

    ... read Zhukov ..- he admitted that the maneuvers before the war showed that there is * a weak spot * where later the Germans attack began ..

    Again we are modest. We urgently need to establish trade relations with China on those positions for which the United States imposes increased duties, and throw them out of the Chinese market. It is necessary to develop trade relations with those countries against which the United States has imposed or will impose sanctions, despite all the bans of Americans, and in the future never support any US initiatives in the UN on these issues. Return to Cuba. To establish there the most powerful point of radio intelligence and tracking all that is needed. Install in the same place some of the most powerful electronic warfare systems, so that it is guaranteed, in a special period, to disable and disable throughout the country electronic communication systems and control the country and the army, GPS, etc. It will even be possible at our expense to build nuclear power plants in Cuba, for the needs of the Cubans, and for the power supply of the above systems. Reconstruct and build new ports for the merchant fleet of Cuba and our warships, while the constant presence of our ships is not necessary. Reconstruct and build new runways for our long-range aviation. Of course, this will have to interest the Cubans with something, but it's worth it, I think so.

    Russia poses a real threat to the United States, and American politicians are absolutely right in this.
    The United States has driven itself into a corner by its policy, to contain those who are dissatisfied, they need a colossal army, and to maintain a colossal army they need to rob other countries that are naturally not happy with this fact - i.e. vicious circle. Accordingly, a change in the global balance of power is more than disastrous for the United States. Therefore, the transition of the United States into a regime of normal partnerships with other states is impossible in principle. Imagine a big man who constantly beat the weak, and then he suddenly became sick and blown away and supposedly became good ... Imagine? so this "former big man" will not be kicked only by the lazy.
    Why did the superiority of the USSR not affect the USA so much? it’s so simple - the communist regime was simply not beneficial to the elites of many countries, since it implied their overthrow, therefore they tolerated the United States as a guarantor of the preservation of these very elites and not the spread of communism (i.e., coups in these same countries). And now Russia is not a propagandist of communism and does not threaten the elites anymore, and therefore any change in the world vector of power threatens not only the interests of the United States, but also its direct security. Since there is no formidable reason to unite around the United States. Therefore, a very powerful propaganda is being conducted against Russia, but it is unlikely that this propaganda will ever replace the fear of communism, especially since it is not so clean. Gentlemen, the collapse of the United States is a matter of time.

    Everything is absolutely not like the article says. Everything was and is different.
    1. The USSR suffered heavy losses in World War II, not because of expectant tactics, but as a result of a conspiracy of Soviet generals trying to dismiss Stalin (who did not let them vandalize) due to heavy losses in the war. Indeed, many people came to the revolution of 2 to throw off the tsar’s elites and become elites themselves. Expectant policy of Stalin and confirmation through TASS on the eve of the war that the USSR was observing the rules gave the USSR a huge gain in that we were supported by the United States and Great Britain. Make Stalin a preemptive strike, and it is very likely that these countries would support Germany. 1917. The same thing is now with Putin, that Russia is restrained and the language of Lavrov and Zakharova constantly confirms that we comply with the rules. Naturally, this information signal is not given to Trump, not the United States, not NATO, and by itself not to Europe, to Ukraine, this is not the level of Putin's Russia, but it is given much higher to the masters of the world. Jewish families: beneficiaries of the US Federal Reserve, owners of the world's largest banks and transnational corporations. And the essence of the signal is very simple, if you do not want to burn together with everyone in a nuclear fire of the 2rd World War - calm down your proteges of P-residents and national, country elites and especially the USA in the face of the Bush, Clinton, McCain clans and others. Does the author of the article think that Putin could not click on Mutko, Zhukov for the purpose of traveling our Olympians to Korea on other more favorable terms, or to punish the Ukrainian-Khazar Khaganate for our fishing vessel, I think it is easy, if this is not done it means so. Putin is a strategist to match Stalin, he plays a long game and does not interest him in collecting pawns and easy pieces on the board, he needs the whole game.

        And who are you to spread the vision of a "free artist" on theatrical productions here for everyone to see? You can’t write, don’t write, my advice to you. Although I see in vain the advice will disappear.

    I'm afraid the war will still be !!!!
    therefore, it is necessary to recognize the DNI and LC! To clean the government! Specifically prepare for war, both the army and the civilian population, with training in mobilization and evacuation !!!

      No need to fear war. If the USSR entered the war, then we would now live under communism.

    "" Putin is a strategist to match Stalin, he plays a long game and does not interest him in collecting pawns and easy pieces on the board, he needs the whole game. ""

    The author completely incorrectly assesses the situation. To succumb to provocations now, when the Russian economy is in a deplorable state due to economic growth on the verge of statistical error, is by no means impossible. What is happening in Syria has only an indirect effect on the security of Russia. Is it really because of Syria that it would jeopardize the security of the state, while the army and, especially, the fleet are not yet rearmament. Now more than ever, the order of June 15, 1941 is urgent: "Do not succumb to provocations!"

      Fate of the weak to retreat. So there’s nothing to compete with a superpower. Everything is ruined. The economy is in ruins without any war. I hope no one wants to die beautifully in battle for the business of oil corporations. No one wants to completely lose their drugs in hospitals. No one wants an increase in housing and communal services immediately, so 30 percent-50%.

    Putin’s merit is the return of CRIMEA., And then he vaguely promised to wet it in the toilet, but for the time being they wet Russia. They creaked, chemical attacks still have some kind of intimidation from morning to night on television.
    Now, Trump is inviting Putin to the White House whether he hopes it won’t get to the board for a label, a minimum neutral territory a maximum Moscow.

    The author, the situation is that all actions are already being done. The war is already underway. And Russia is in battle. But you think that not yet. You're wrong. Because the war is now just psychological. The USSR lost the psychological war, so Russia is now in such a initially weak psychological state of the whipping boy. But it is thanks to patience and worthy behavior that grows up gradually. And this process must continue. Until he becomes an adult completely.

    And the war in iron is a completely different matter. Neither the USSR nor Russia lost it to anyone. There was no and no weakness at this level. If you do not understand this and are not confident in your country, you suffer from the desire to fill your face for psychological suffering, you want to break the brakes - this is a sign of uncertainty, this is still childhood, infantilism.

    But in reality, Russia will enter a real war with the West, in a heated conflict ONLY if this West attacks it - in Russia or in Syria - it does not matter. They will attack our military - they will die proportionately. Dot. This conversation is already an adult ....

    [quote] [/ quote] The United States intends to prepare a summit in the context of blackmail and pressure on Moscow, apparently considering this to be the most suitable background for such a summit. Is it necessary to clarify that not a single Soviet and, hopefully, not a single Russian leader, would ever, under any circumstances, meet in such humiliating conditions of an open foreign dictate. ????????????? and further, in the text: It happened once with Gorbachev, why not try again? You’ll decide once or with the exception of Gorbachev, Yeltsin, with the exception of meetings during the American aggression in Libya, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Syria, etc.

    “Once, in June 1941, we already did exactly the same thing. That is, we stubbornly did not give in to the provocations that the Nazis regularly arranged for the Soviet Union. And what did you get in the end?” - the author, and you are aware of the Roosevelt directive, which announced in 1941: “If Germany attacks the USSR, we will support the USSR. If the USSR attacks Germany OR ALLOWS TO PROVIDE YOURSELF, will we support Germany”? Stalin understood the risk of war on 2 fronts, and the combination "Germany + USA" did not suit him at all.

    Therefore, before building analogies, study the material.

      There was no such Roosevelt directive! You are probably confusing with the phrase of the future president G. Truman, which he said in the fall of 1941, AFTER the start of the war, but BEFORE Hitler declared war on the USA after Pearl Harbor:
      “If we see that Germany wins, then we should help Russia, and if Russia wins, we should help Germany, and thus let them kill each other as much as possible, although I do not want Hitler’s victory at any circumstances. " hi

    The horror is that, most likely, the Kremlin will not answer in any way not only to Washington, but even to Kiev. As he did not answer. practically. not a single provocation of the USA and Kiev! The worst thing the Authority decided on was to close the parking lot at one of the buildings of the US Embassy in Moscow! For nearly a month, Kiev pirates have captured 2 of our ships and are forcibly holding our citizens. What is done? Almost nothing!!! Why not take and block the Sea of ​​Azov completely and the territorial waters of Ukraine in the Black Sea? Alas(
