Pompeo knows how to turn America into Pompeii

22
The new US secretary of state introduces his fellow citizens into a dangerous delusion, telling tales about the possibility of killing Russians with impunity.




On the eve of many Russian media resources quoted the statement of the US Secretary of State, former CIA Director Mike Pompeo, about the death of "a couple of hundred Russians" in Syria:

“In Syria, a few weeks ago, the Russians met a worthy opponent. [As a result of this collision] a couple of hundred Russians were killed, ”Pompeo said. What kind of incident he is talking about, the head of the Central Intelligence Agency did not elaborate, noting, however, that all Russians were killed by the US military. ”


Since this news Mostly, the media picked up a completely specific focus, the main emphasis, naturally, was made on the most roast fact, which, they say, does not fully fit in with the “obviously understated” Russian official data on the losses of Russians in Syria. Including in the course of the notorious clash under Deir ez-Zor.

At the same time, the indicated media were either out of negligence, or intentionally missed what is undoubtedly the main “message” for which Pompeo most likely decided to recall this already forgotten, against the background of rapid events stories.

The fact is that the American leadership in the process of understanding the situation around Syria and making optimal decisions from his point of view, clearly faced a problem, about which it is customary to say: the spit found on a stone. What a couple of days ago told usually well-informed "Los Angeles Times":

“The Pentagon’s planning teams are ready to respond to the alleged chemical attack in Syria, but one danger is of particular concern - will the Russian military die on Syrian territory during air strikes, which will cause the regional war to develop into a confrontation between Washington and Moscow?”


The risks associated with the almost inevitable losses in the case of American missile-bombing of Syria among Russian military personnel cannot be ignored by the American military officials, whose actions now literally depend on the fate of the whole world and the United States. It is obvious that the unresolved nature of this problem was one of the main reasons why the Washington administration refused to immediately strike Syria. Moreover, Moscow does not find the slightest desire to “respect” the American partners and free the objects of future attacks from the presence of their military advisers. By the way, there have literally just been reports of the deployment of units of the Russian military police in the Eastern Guta - potentially one of the most "rocket-dangerous" sectors of the Syrian territory.

Against the background of a stormy debate on the subject in the ruling circles of the United States, Mike Pompeo suddenly appears with his recollection of the massacre of Russians by the brave American military that allegedly took place in Syria.

Even if he blurted it out purely by stupidity or for a bunch of words, even then this statement in the current context of events would be read quite clearly.

Pompeo, obviously, thereby tried to remove those fears and phobias that now clearly dominate in Washington over the threat of a direct collision with the troops of the Russian Federation. He actually says the following. In the destruction of the Russians, including quite massive, there is nothing special. So we killed "a couple of hundred Russians" in Syria - so what? Heaven fell to the earth? No, do not fall!

It is highly unlikely that this Pompeo really thinks that Russians can be killed by the hundreds and with complete impunity. Nevertheless, he is in a hurry to give the appropriate installation to the rest of Washington officials. Apparently, so that they are not too mandated about the Russian response.

Pompeo is not a fool. Those in the state secretaries, even in today's America do not take. But, undoubtedly, an experienced provocateur. What a special service of such a rank simply cannot be.

He himself, never doubt it, knows perfectly well that there was a Russian answer for the attack near Deir-ez-Zor. Yes, even what the answer! The largest terrorist enclave in the Damascus area is Eastern Guta, the last, so to speak, hope of Washington in Western Syria, after which the American attack was trimmed by Syrian and Russian troops to a samovar brilliance and is now called nothing but a new liberated territory of Syria.

But Pompeo quite deliberately avoids this dangerous topic. Because the main meaning of his "message" is the opposite - to show that it is common for Americans to kill Russians in any quantity, that they are already doing quite well in Syria. And, therefore, there is no reason to consider this topic a new one that deserves attention and, especially, to take it into account when making decisions.

It is quite obvious, however, that the conclusion to which Mike Pompeo is thus pushing his American audience is wrong neither in fact nor in substance. Because in fact, in such cases, the answer of the Russians, and an extremely tough answer, follows inevitably. And there is no doubt that it will continue this way. And people like Pompeo are well aware of this. The fact of the matter is that they are ready to go for the exacerbation, knowing full well the possible consequences. Apparently, in terms of the logic of their business plans, the goal in this case justifies not only the means, but also the risks. And since the risks are such that in the history of mankind has not yet been, it becomes clear that the situation of the United States or, in any case, of the circles to which Pompeo itself belongs, as they say, worse than the governor’s. So they embark on all grave, because they have no other way to solve their problems.

By the way, one of Mike Pompeo's predecessors as US Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, once stunned all of humanity with an ominous phrase: “There are more important things than the world!” It seems that the new US Secretary of State professes the same deadly philosophy. But this time - deadly for America itself.

        I’ve written here more than once that I read back in the 90s an American author who analyzed the reasons that could lead the world to the threshold of the Third World War and he, in the first place among these threats, put forward, namely, the tendency that was then emerging, nomination and coming to power of such populist politicians for whom “There are more important things than the world!”

        I think everything is extremely logical here. They want to check the leaders of the Russian Federation for "weak"
        In a neutral territory, strike and check how the Russian leadership is responsible for their words. Is it ready to protect its people and to what extreme.

          I agree. The logic in the actions of Americans is definitely some kind. Not necessarily the one you specified, but there is. Any normal person before the action will answer the question, perhaps even without asking him: "Why do I need this?"
          But the options for why this is necessary may be different: to raise the authority of the current president, to take on the weak (as you indicated), to put us "in place" ... You can think of a lot.

    That's exactly what he thinks ... I think our military will have to set the brains of this rooster through its back seat.

      And I would add that the Russians for him, as well as for the Anglo-Saxons in general, are particular, because, in principle, they do not care who they are: Russians or Chinese, Serbs or Libyans, Syrians or Ukrainians, Poles or Iraqis, Somalis, Vietnamese , Irish, Japanese or Indians. They are “imprisoned” to subordinate all to their interests, without distinction, therefore nationality does not matter to them.

    I wonder where the authors who predicted Pompeo’s resignation because he “overlooked Putin’s latest weapons” poked their tongue?

      What are you talking about? The GDP message about a new weapon is beneficial to the West in the West; they simply transferred this message from defensive rhetoric to aggressive for their audience. And then the people began to harass poorly what the State Department palmed off with the other CIA.

        I’m talking about domestic authors and commentators who claimed that the CIA overslept the latest weapons and that Pompeo would resign.

          They were not very competent and knowledgeable “authors” who think that the CIA is a pleasure institution where some losers and slow-witted people serve. In fact, in Russia there are a lot of smart and educated specialists, including those with a military background, who rate a potential rival and his intelligence community very highly. Read their analytics.

    With regard to the situation, I recall a proverb - screaming in anger is ridiculous, and silent is scary. Apparently all decisions have been made and in the USA they are clearly aware of this. What happens is the “pumping" of courage before the fight.

      In relation to the situation, Russia itself is to blame for the fact that mattresses and their satellites pump and provoke, without receiving any opposition in response.
      Our Defense Ministry and the Foreign Ministry are only doing that they are voicing their "last Chinese warning."
      The final example is two Jewish planes (are they Jewish? Jerusalem did not admit it).
      Even for small provocations, one must firmly beat hands, then the courage in words will sharply decrease. Including the tvetooter.

    Ideally, one should completely drown one AUG. This is for a long time if it would not forever discourage the Yankees from adventures. And then the lessons of Vietnam are forgotten. But this is ideal. In real life, this is war. And kirdyk to everyone.

    I think that all the same, for people like Pompeo, Trump, Bolton, etc., the instinct for self-preservation is still stronger. They will kill with pleasure if it is impunity, but they will not risk their lives. A direct clash with Russia threatens them directly. Because in all cases, then someone must answer.

    Politicians and authorities are degrading before our eyes, not only in the United States, but also in Europe. Trump gathered around him complete bloodthirsty Russophobia, who in words (for now) are ready to go all out against Russia and calmly unleash a world war. In Britain, May and Boris are cast out on the fifth reinforced forgetting about the elementary rules of decency. In Germany, an elderly Frau makes himself the arbiter of the fate of the German people completely forgetting the lessons of history. In France, the guy is constantly running ahead of the engine, wanting to please the United States and "solidify" it is not clear with whom. This lives and, as expected, parasites are fed at the expense of someone else's blood.

    Pompeo is by no means a duac

    Yes, Pompeo is by no means a du.ak, Pompeo is a 63-sized head, a big head, and Trump + Pompeo is two heads, do not put a finger in their mouth, picnic vests would tell O. Bender.

    But for example, the US representative to the UN, Nick Haley, is not only a head, but also a bust, and p ... a. Which is not bad compared to Pompeo. Etc.

    This is the level of analysis of the situation in the publication.

    here, and I was also pleased with our answer, we were cut down by 200 people, and we would defeat the Eastern Ghuta, that is, if they had not been killed then in the Ghuta, no one would have stuck near Damascus. That is, they’re killing us on the Tartus, but we are oppa! And we’ll clean the igil to shine near the border with Israel, well, shoot 10 people, and take out the rest on the buses, well, like Stalin when Berlin took ... But what? Didn’t take it out? Well then ...

    Pompeo says so, because Russia allows itself to be humiliated. Russia will never do anything for its real defense. They have been killing us there for a long time .... I have friends who were in Syria .... If Russia really really lowered Amerov through all channels and showed that these very Americans are real sponsors of terrorists, that there are 100 % proof of; then they would be intimidated; and we are all silent and half-hinting .... We could inflate about Kemerovo, it’s very tragic, but unfortunately in politics all means are good and we could hang all the dogs on the Westerners as they are on us ..... And we again keep quiet. We will never do anything and never. Churkin was killed 100%, the Americans banged Karlov with the wrong hands, our embassy attacked 100 times and the Americans called on our soldiers to kill, and we all express our concern ..... Only an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth work in this world !!!!! !!!!!!! Otherwise, they will simply smear us! Anglo-Saxons are extremely vile and cowardly, and they could be intimidated as they should, and we are all silent .... Traitors are sitting alone with us. That's all!
