The author of these lines is not the president of the Russian Federation and not even her citizen. I am a citizen of the Soviet Union, having forcibly issued by the occupation authorities auswais of a “citizen of Ukraine”, but never giving his consent to deprive me of my homeland in its entirety.
Therefore, I am not going to give advice to the current Russian authorities. But I reserve the right to reflect on the interests of my great Motherland, which belongs to me by the right and the former does not happen.
So, this Motherland, or rather, some of its remnants, still under-annexed by the West, are trying to resist the world hegemon and defend their right to an existence independent of it and even to exist as such. In places, this resistance is already assuming the character of a full-scale war.
In particular, it is generally recognized, including at the official level of the Russian Federation, that an information war is being waged against Russia.
But if this is so, and this is indeed so, because such serious definitions as “war” are not accepted to be used in official documents without good reason, then quite definite conclusions follow from this fact.
For information warfare is nothing but purposeful actions aimed at the moral decay of the troops and the population of the adversary state in order to force it to end resistance and capitulation.
Accordingly, all the forces and means used by the West in this war are, by definition, instruments of military confrontation. And as such, they are subject to complete neutralization, including through their complete destruction.
This was not done at the time in Ukraine, almost all of the media which were previously bought up by Western intelligence agencies. It was they who brought the case of the moral and political expansion of the population of this country to the final point in the form of complete indifference of this huge mass of people in the process of a coup d'etat and the seizure of power by Western agents.
How much is this lesson taken into account in other areas of my homeland still trying to resist the geopolitical aggressor? Did you succeed at least here to neutralize the tools of demotivation and moral disintegration of society, used by the enemy under the guise, similar to the Ukrainian case? Consider in this regard, the situation in the Russian Federation in the context of discussion in the public space of the hottest topic at the moment - the situation in Syria.
To be honest, I have no reasons for optimism. The information space, or rather the Internet, which is its modern equivalent, is literally flooded with a stream of the most turbid comments on this topic that interpret the situation in the world after the US attack on Syria April 14 and the role of the Russian Federation in these events. Here is a typical short version:
"After the missile attack in Syria, where the United States hit so that no one gets into, and Russia does not strike back, the fighters of the information front, playing on the side of the West, have become more active."
Please note: it seems to be written from a patriotic standpoint, with obvious disapproval of the machinations of "information front fighters playing on the side of the West." But even the authors of this text themselves, who seem to be "playing" on the other, right side, without batting an eye, claim that "Russia has not struck back!"
From such infantile frivolity literally bewildered. Even if the destruction of two-thirds, if not three-quarters of the enemy's attacking missiles is not considered a retaliatory strike, then I simply have no words. Are they missing the red flag over the Reichstag? And the fact that Russia has organized everything in Syria in such a way that the American aggressor has thoroughly substituted itself and disgraced the whole world with its completely useless rocket attack, is this also not a retaliatory strike by Russia? And just by chance happened? This is the extent to which it is necessary to be naive kids in order to seriously think that Russia is completely withdrawing itself from repelling this attack, and the whole of this total rocket was committed by the valiant Syrian anti-aircraft gunners.
Guys, writers! An hour you did not notice that the American enemy in the course of this attack completely refused to attack the forces and means of air defense of the SAR? That is, from what is a prerequisite for the success of any military air attack. Do you seriously think that the Yankees are so humane that they regretted the Syrian gunners and the radar operators? Yes, they wanted to sneeze on them! But they did not dare to strike blows at the positions of a nominally Syrian air defense, where serious people are probably sitting with no appearance typical of these places.
And this is called "Russia did not respond to the blow"? Full control over the situation, forcing the enemy to act in the most unfavorable conditions for him and, finally, the practical defeat of his rocket group with clear evidence to the whole world that the American features are not so terrible as he is painted, is it that little things that do not deserve attention?
And here's another from the same low-sick patriotic "opera". The title of the business publication reads: "The whole planet is waiting for the return stroke of Russia." Yes, he was already, was! Calm down finally! But it’s not so long for Armageddon to click!
I feed on the faint hope that such things are written not by any experienced enemy agents, but simply by purely civilian people who have no idea what war is and what the cost of war decisions really is. You read such militant clerks who are almost upset by the fact that Putin did not “kick in the Pindos” with “all the proletarian hatred” and inevitably ask yourself: do they have children and grandchildren? And they generally understand that Putin has just once again saved them themselves from fiery hell? Into which the whole world would inevitably turn, had he allowed at least one wrong move in this situation.
Or another revelation of the same demotivating posiba:
"The succession of strikes in recent months (the battle near Deir ez-Zor, the death of Skrypal the cat, the sanctions and now the missile strike before the investigation), the Western coalition teaches the world to think that the position of Russia is not an obstacle for their plans and their allies . This hint is not even Damascus, but to all potential friends of Moscow. ”
About the death of the Skrypal's cat as a justification for the thesis that “the Russian army will not be able to defend its allies” is even scary to repeat. And what if through such phrases the infection of inadequacy is transmitted? And essentially the same thing. Again the red flag over the Reichstag is required? Or an American aircraft carrier, slain to death by the Dagger? Without this in any way? And nothing that Russia, which supposedly all is so powerless, in response to the same American strike at Deir-ez-Zor provided all the conditions for the successful elimination of the huge terrorist enclave in Eastern Ghouta? And thanks to this, in the most decisive way, moved the case to the complete victory of the legitimate government of Syria and to the inglorious end of the aggression of hirelings of the West against this country. All this does not count?
And when the same Americans tried to recoup using rocket attacks, the same Russia, which, they say, “cannot protect anyone,” arranged everything so that almost all American missiles flew over Syria like plywood over Paris. Suffice to say that it was the first in the world stories Bombing, during which no one died!
It is noteworthy that the same edition broke out with a whole series of publications, the authors of which vigorously repeat the same thing: America rules, Trump has a “brilliant plan” as usual, and Russia is the same “simple” who has absolutely nothing. does not exceed.
“The very same demonstration ... to the countries of the Middle East and the whole world that the military presence of Russia does not guarantee full protection from American aggression. This is the message of the United States to the entire planet from 14 on April 2018 of the year: yes, we are not able to conduct a full-fledged invasion of the country where the Russian military forces are, but we will be able to carry out punitive air strikes for letting the Russians take over. This is an act of intimidation to those who were about to get out of the influence of Pax Americana, the dollar system. ”
In short, the Americans, who with their new “blow” managed even worse than last year’s according to Shairat, turned out to be full-time students and intimidated everyone! And Russia and Syria, which, perhaps for the first time in world history, really broke off their horns, are hopeless losers who have proved their weakness! In both!
I think that world leaders capable of sensibly assessing the situation and, in general, adequate analysts made the opposite conclusion from recent events. Within the framework of which there can be no talk of some kind of "fatal incapacity" of the Russian Federation and its "useless military capabilities." As well as the voluntary game of giveaway on the part of Washington. Otherwise, with a fright, the same French Macron immediately after this Syrian story began to ask to be considered equal to Putin? Does he need it if Russia "can do nothing"?
Moreover, I suspect that after April 14, the global queue of those who want to urgently acquire Russian air defense systems will increase significantly. Because this is exactly what many countries lack in the terrorized America in order to stop being afraid of their missile-bomb blackmail and declare their rights in a loud voice.
But if such comments can still be somehow explained by the biographical problems of the authors - especially the stafirok, but with some hope of the honesty of their delusions, then there are cases of a completely different sort. From which malicious intention breaks a mile away. One of these Moscow editions advanced in terms of anti-Russian insinuations on the same days began to expose an American (!!!) TV channel, which had the audacity to doubt the veracity of Washington's inventions about the “chemical attack of Assad” in Syria!
First of all, the strangeness of the situation itself, in which the Russian edition defends the American government from criticism of American journalists, draws attention to itself. And secondly, the argument is curious, which used to lower this politically incorrect media:
“The reportage of the journalist was ignored by non-Russian-language media, possibly for several reasons at once. For starters, Sharpe Pierce admitted that he did not speak Arabic and arrived at the Duma accompanied by the Syrian military. According to some commentators (mainly on Twitter), this has seriously reduced the credibility of his report. In any case, his words that everyone with whom he communicated (through military translators) “love Assad” did not look more convincing because of this. ”
I specifically quoted this text of words so that you would appreciate the whole “charm” of this “revelation”. The same is necessary - the American journalist does not speak Arabic! Yes 99% percent of journalists in this country do not know a single word in any language other than their own. What does not prevent them from accusing Syria and its power of all mortal sins. Using the services of translators is a normal practice of journalistic work on a business trip abroad, and only in such an insane text can it be equated with crime.
And here's another problem - the American arrived in the Syrian Duma, accompanied by the Syrian military! And with whom he had yet to appear in the area controlled by the Syrian army? In a company with terrorist fighters, or what? And this is not to mention the fact that this guy even visited that poor Syria and looked at it with his own eyes. Whereas almost all other US journalists write about the “bloody crimes of Assad,” generally without leaving their own overseas editorial boards.
That is, we face a frankly incompetent nonsense. Nevertheless, this frankly biased set of words, the only meaning of which is the apology of the official position of the White House about the guilt of Syria, and, therefore, of Russia, is completely free to spread on the territory of the Russian Federation involved in a fierce information war!
And in vain you think that it has no consequences. So, for example, the audience of the same publication by two-thirds of votes expresses confidence that calls for the mobilization of Russian society against the background of an external threat are nothing more than a banal boltology of the authorities and a departure from the country's real problems:
Date: from 12.04.2018 to 19.04.2018.
Calls for the mobilization of society against the backdrop of an external threat are ...
The natural reaction to exacerbation of the situation is 5510 (33,51%).
Attempt to avoid talking to the point - 7252 (44,1%).
A special genre in television and radio is 3682 (22,39%).
Total votes: 16444.
Information warfare is a very serious thing. These are nails that hammer your head in such a way that you do not even notice it. And in the meantime, your brain shrinks and turns into a primitive gadget for receiving external control signals. Information warfare, like any other, requires adequate (military) measures to counter enemy intrigues. That is extremely tough and best of all proactive.
However, gentlemen, the Russians, do what you want. You are on this fragment of my homeland formal owners. And I, in my current status, are no one at all, such a “negro of advanced years”. Which, however, saw something in this life with its own eyes. And, in particular, he saw how another same fragment of my Homeland easily devoured the same Americans in precisely this way, after fooling the weak local heads with their propaganda. Exactly the same American spill, which now they feed you. And with which they enthusiastically sing along, partly through thoughtlessness, and most often within the framework of a specific editorial policy, local narrators. Want to step on those same rakes? Yes please! It will be your choice. I fulfilled my mission: I warned about the inevitable consequences.
