Military Review

The right to know. Sorry, right not to know!

35
In the “Right to Know!” Program from April 6, Yevgeny Kulikov received the leading expert of the US Atlantic Council, Ariel Cohen. This organization makes recommendations to the State Department on foreign policy in relation to Russia and the world, predicts “color revolutions”, for example, the new Ukrainian “anti-corruption”, hears the newly elected presidents (including Petro Poroshenko). That is, Ariel is an expert from the organization of a solid, frankly hostile Russia, albeit of Russian origin. However, for some reason, our experts believe that if a Western expert speaks Russian and pretends to be good to Russia, then we can talk to him “on the Hamburg bill”: he will answer the questions posed openly.




In general, this happens with Western political scientists of Russian origin, Dmitry Simes often answers "according to the Hamburg bill", but he is not part of the Atlantic Council, probably, this is a certain sign. Ariel Cohen responded as a true atlantist, in the style of "when Russia stops its aggressive policy", paraphrasing his maxim: "When will you stop beating your wife?"

Ariel turned as if on a griddle, and our experts with their politically correct and solid questions like “Why did the USA betray its Kurdish allies in Rakka” always got a finger in the sky. Because Cohen always answered simply: this is what you think, but the Atlantic Council ... and in general, the Kurds are your longtime allies. And the “Case of Skrypal” is muddy, and nothing is clear to me, like you. Answers to Ariel, as it were, are given, but the fact that they are not experts and in general about anything is another question.

In principle, on a talk show, unplanned questions should not be asked by opponents in any case, this is written in any ancient Greek textbook of rhetoric, but our experts and leaders on this issue retain amazing ignorance, they constantly ask the opinion of "respected" Ukrainian and other experts: what are they thinking about this? And the experienced Bandera starts his favorite song, as he is sorry that he failed to “restore order” in the Crimea. The question to the opponent gives him the right to vote, the right to conduct his own propaganda, mocking this nonsense of the other side, but our well-behaved experts still cannot understand this.

Ariel Cohen spoke in the program, which meant questions to him as an invited expert, so it was impossible to avoid questions, but then they should be simple, not theoretically Hamburg, and the best of them is the truly brilliant question: "How to get to the library?" This refers to its construction, which implies an unequivocal answer: either to say how to get past, or to admit one's impotence. There are always reasons for such questions.

The United States has just introduced new sanctions against Russia "for malicious acts around the world." How can Russia talk to the USA after that, and what about? In the light of the fact that our Atlantic expert constantly calls for dialogue and the search for certain points of contact. Where would he recommend the State Department after this look for points of contact?

Why not ask a simple question: how will America react if Russia, together with China, helps the national forces in Mexico carry out the liberation Mexican and anti-American revolution for the sake of the prosperity of world humanity?

In the case of “The Violin”, it would be interesting to hear from Ariel, and other “respected Western experts,” the answer to the question: “How was Russia to respond to Theresa May’s ultimatum: to recognize the Russian origin of the Novice OS, allegedly used in Salisbury? This is an ultimatum in the style of “when will you stop beating your wife?” How would the US respond to such an ultimatum from, say, Mexico or Brazil? Then, as in the case of the library, the expert still has to answer “according to the Hamburg bill”, or confess that he is not an expert at all, and does not know how to get to the library.

I would ask Ariel the following question: how does he feel about the destruction of Russian special forces, perhaps of the Wagner military complex, an unknown terrorist group that has committed a high-tech attack by drones of the Russian base in Hamim? Then the American reconnaissance aircraft "Poseidon" just flew to Hamim. After this incident, a series of ground combat clashes began in Syria, in which both the Wagner PMC and the American special forces suffered, quite by accident?

It’s strange that our leading experts are punctured on such rhetorical trifles, they don’t understand that Western political experts don’t make sense to ask general political and ideological questions, look for a “Hamburg bill” with them - they always get a muddy political answer about anything that was done constantly in the Kulikov's program “The Right to Know!” our friend Ariel Cohen.

      Kulikov is also a muddy figure, he is a liberal, although of the left wing, as he speaks of himself, so you won’t hear such questions from him. Especially from his accomplice-emigrant Zlobin on the Red Project. Not those people should propagandize and defend the political course of Russia. Here and invite all the evil spilling dirt on us, from our own screens. That's why I do not watch TV.

          From the Internet : I like our political talk shows: several Jews from different countries will gather, diluted with a couple of Armenians, and let's worry about the fate of the Russian people.

            Kapten45 (Yuri) dear! I have already written several times on the forum, but maybe flies, or maybe they don’t want to hear. I always appeal to history and facts - I do the answer. in politics, music, science and the army in tsarist Russia like the USSR as well as in the Russian Federation there have always been many people who came territorially from Ukraine, Transcaucasia, and once Poland and the Baltic states. I am about the ratio of the population of the nation and the real number in the field, positions, etc. from the revolution and the time of the thaw, to the coup and to this day. the question is not uniqueness and talent. and the ability to crawl and gain a foothold, fraternity and other things far from talent and necessity. I recently explained to a resident of Israel why and why. clever at first. then shut up. re-read what I wrote earlier. most importantly understand that for them it is not their homeland. a chance? maybe. opportunity ? may be . but not the motherland. and the peoples of Russia, Tatarstan, Bashkiria, Udmurtia, and the rest aliens to them.

        Calling Kulikov a liberal is strong! This is a political scientist making money on politics. That is why he participated in political and election campaigns in Russia and Ukraine: Leonid Kuchma in the 1999 presidential election, Viktor Yanukovych in the 2004 presidential election, Arseniy Yatsenyuk in the 2010 presidential election, Mikhail Prokhorov and the Just Cause party with summer through fall 2011.
        Kulikov was credited with developing messages and theses and conveying them to the electorate.
        He does not care what political views are promoted by the politician advertised by him, the main thing is to earn money on this! hi

      Cohen does not make the impression of a deep analyst and is often caught on elementary illiteracy. Is it worth it to discuss such mediocrity on the forum? He is no better than Ukrainian Koftun.winked

        bully I beg you! Valera, well, according to the new Ariel, you still find your gesheft delicious and he needs this, your "literacy" as a piece cut off by a grave. bully All this dog’s wedding is needed only for one thing - to take out the emigrant, who became like an Americanoid steeper than the locally born and who came to the natives to show life was a success and listen to me silently in both ears. Well, against the background of this penny, the leading one famously sets off his level. Estessno strongly without straining. A very protest and win-win move. While the audience is boiling and writing boiling water on a visitor, the local tries on white clothes. Well, everyone is happy.

      Political talk shows, in my opinion, are just an element of propaganda (needed) and an opportunity to earn for opponents. And it closely resembles a hassle of attendants on benches. The old and familiar bickering, the arguments of the parties have long been known. Rare intelligible comments of people are lost on the general background.

        I agree. D. Simes is quite loyal in his assessments of what is happening. But A. Cohen is a sleek and polite copy of such a character as Zhora Vinnik, who went through various talk shows under the name Weiner, and, thank God, he disappeared from sight. He really doesn’t hide his negative attitude towards Russia, he constantly sings the hosannah of the USA and its shabby political establishment.

    All these talk shows (“Right to Know”, “Right to Vote”, “Meeting Place”, etc.) are a good feeder for the participants - the loot is dripping, there is no responsibility, there is room for imagination on any topic, etc. In my opinion, there is only one highly professional program on politics on TV, in our opinion, "International Review" with E. Primakov on the Russia24 channel.

    At all these talk shows with the help of various Blah blah-yans, of all stripes, liberalists and iksperdy-gorlopans from the "fraternal" republics are shitting on Russia on Russian television in such a way that it’s expensive to watch. With the help of all of their media, they could not have fooled more. The Russian audience is forced to listen to this nonsense and the miserable response of our politicians and self-made political scientists. And this is in the best television time.
    What is the result to expect from this action? Transformation and development? A month already, as in a box only a creak and a creak about unfinished. Now Yaroslavna’s cry will begin about our poor oligarchs, who are not there, and their bona fide stolen losses.
    The homeland awaits workers and heroes, and only experts and political scientists are born.

    Five minutes after the start of the transfer, he turned off the TV. It felt like I got into a public toilet, where all the booths are busy, but for some reason they are knocking all the time at one time, and therefore the exclamation is constantly heard from there: "Busy!" And with every knock, this exclamation is grosser, more impudent and meaner.

    Solovyov’s program and other similar programs are platforms for promoting the position of Washington and Kiev. Allowing these "expert Sovietologists" is possible only on an equal or paid basis. And so long ago it is clear that these "experts" will broadcast. Some participants in the programs should have been sent back for extremism a long time ago and fined.

    On all these talk shows, with all the presenters, on any topic and occasion, and with any audience, in concert, as presenters and invited by well-paid television channels, with supposedly different views and even from different countries, the same scenario is played out for money and allowed the same task is to blow off the whistle with these 60 to ten minutes of hate.
    And it turns out.

    What is an effective and inexpensive component of a permanent information war with the population, through television, often replacing people with a refrigerator and their own brains.

    It just becomes clear that these "iksperds" are invited mainly, only for the "passions and storms in a glass of water", to increase the rating of the program ... Can we really seriously think that after listening to our questions and attitudes in these "blurry answers about nothing "the audience in the hall, clapping everyone in a row, the arrogant Saxons will take into account these claps in the hall for the country's determination to wage an uncompromising struggle for" sovereignty and world peace "?!

    Ariel Cohen is Valery Kogan, a native of Yalta, who began as a Sovietologist, then as a specialist in Russia in the dashing 1990s, when Russia licked the USA in all holes. Therefore, probably due to stupidity, he cannot get rid of his mentor tone. Here Simes, Dima Simis, who is smarter, serves the same material, but politely, with reservations.
