Mattis: Finns and Swedes, do not forget that Russia fought against you

On the official website of the Pentagon published a joint statement by the Ministers of Defense of the United States, Sweden and Finland. The very visit by the Swedish and Finnish Pentagon ministers suggests that Washington continues to carry out attempts to drag these countries into the North Atlantic military bloc. And so far no serious arguments can be offered for this, each time using the same rhetoric - “about the threat from Russia”.

Mattis: Finns and Swedes, do not forget that Russia fought against you

The head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, during his negotiations with colleagues from northern Europe, once again declared that Russia was “threatening” their countries. To make the argument more convincing, Mattis decided to plunge into history, stating that "the conclusions suggest themselves on the basis of such historical facts as the Soviet-Finnish war."

Of release statements by the us minister:
Both Finland and Sweden know firsthand that the threat of ignoring international law can threaten regional security and stability. This neglect took various forms, including the Russian invasion of Finland during the winter war that took place almost 80 years ago. These are the cases of Georgia and Ukraine, which are now too well aware of current events. In addition, the Soviet invasions of the territorial waters of Sweden at the end of the Cold War are another example, a reminder of the threats that we once hoped were in the past.

It is surprising that Mattis did not even remember the Russian-Swedish (Northern) war, when "the Russians treacherously lured the Swedes under Poltava" ...

The destabilizing behavior of Russia today reminds us that our common respect for the rule of law and territorial integrity must be protected. I would like to express our respect for Finland’s and Sweden’s firm commitment to global security.

Did this "respect for territorial integrity" also spread to Yugoslavia in the 90s?

And what can you do for the sake of drawing the Finns and Swedes into NATO ...

          In the capital of Norway, which until the alliance of the four right-wing parties had recently come to power in the country, a paradise for Muslim immigrants from Asia and Africa, this summer the Sunni Front organization (Ansar al-Sunna) demanded independence from Norway for Grennland - one of Oslo's central districts, the majority of whose inhabitants are Muslims.

          “We don’t want to be a part of Norway,” the residents of the capital wrote in their appeal, “and we don’t think it’s right to leave Norway because we were born and raised here ... Leave Grennland and give us the opportunity to govern it according to Sharia law. We don’t want to live with dirty monsters like you ... Do not force us to do something that can still be avoided. This is not a threat, but only a word of truth and justice ... "

          The requirements are quite fair! How can they leave their homeland! This would be a betrayal, but this cannot be allowed. And the Norwegians will find another Norway! And finally, it’s time to change already, it’s time to study the Qur'an, this is consistent with the principles of democracy and multiculturalism.

          It seems that the Islamic state will arise in Norway earlier than the Palestinian state in Israel.

          This applies to all Scandinavian countries, so let them drag at least where. The main thing is to free them we did not climb.

      Well, this is in the spirit of a European civilization. After the attack, they get a rebuff and scream to the whole world and about * unprovoked * and about the illegality of the rebuff.
      In fact, Finland is the record holder in the number of officially declared wars to the SOVIET UNION. Four times the Finns attacked and then declared war, and this apart from provocations and so - minor conflicts on the border and at sea. Even the Poles with their ambition only declared war twice to the SOVIET UNION, and the Germans only once, but also in European, after the attack.
      By the way, the Swedes, with the declared neutrality, supplied the Nazis with everything they could produce themselves or purchase in the USA or elsewhere. In addition, there were Swedish soldiers and officers in the Finnish army. The Swedish king, I do not remember either his number or his name there ALWAYS wore the Nazi party badge that Hitler personally handed him.

      What are the standards? lol
      At the beginning of the XIX century. there was an official consolidation of the borders of Russian possessions in North America and northern Europe. Petersburg Conventions 1824 g. Defined the boundaries with the American (USA) and English possessions. The Americans pledged not to settle north of 54 ° 40 ′ s. w. on the coast, and the Russians south. The border of Russian and British possessions passed along the Pacific coast from 54 ° s. w. up to 60 ° s w. 10 miles from the edge of the ocean, considering all the bends of the coast.
      The St. Petersburg Russian-Swedish Convention 1826 established the Russian-Norwegian border.
      New wars with Turkey and Iran led to the further expansion of the territory of the Russian Empire. Under the Akkerman Convention with Turkey 1826, Russia secured for itself Sukhum, Anaklia and Redut-Kale. In accordance with the Adrianople Peace Treaty 1829, Russia received the mouth of the Danube and the Black Sea coast from the mouth of the Kuban to the post of St. Nicholas, including Anapa and Poti, as well as the Akhaltsikh pashalyk. In the same years, Balkaria and Karachay joined Russia. In 1859-1864 Russia included Chechnya, Nagorno-Dagestan and mountain peoples (Circassians, etc.)

      Under the terms of the Aigun (1858) agreement with China, Russia received territories on the left bank of the Amur River from Argun to the mouth, previously considered undivided, and Primorye (Ussuri Territory) was recognized as common ownership. The Beijing treatise of 1860 issued the final accession of Primorye to Russia. In 1871, Russia annexed the Ili region, belonging to the Qing Empire, with the city of Kuldzh, but after 10 years it was returned to China. At the same time, the border in the area of ​​Lake Zaysan and Black Irtysh was corrected in favor of Russia.
      Since the middle of the XIX century. continued began in the XVIII century. promotion of Russian possessions in Central Asia. In 1846, the Kazakh Senior Zhuz (Big Horde) announced the voluntary acceptance of Russian citizenship, and in 1853, the Kokand fortress Ak-Mechet was conquered. In 1860 the accession of the Seven Rivers was completed, and in 1864-1867. parts of the Kokand Khanate (Chimkent, Tashkent, Khojent, Zachirchik Territory) and the Bukhara Emirate (Ura-Tyube, Jizzakh, Yana-Kurgan) were annexed. In 1868, the Bukhara emir recognized himself as a vassal of the Russian tsar, and the Samarkand and Katta-Kurgan districts of the emirate and Zeravshan region were annexed to Russia. In 1869, the coast of the Krasnovodsk Bay was annexed to Russia, and the next year the Mangyshlak Peninsula. According to the Hendemian peace treaty with the Khiva Khanate in 1873, the latter recognized vassal dependence on Russia, and the lands along the right bank of the Amu Darya became part of Russia. In 1875, the Kokand Khanate became a vassal of Russia, and in 1876 it was included in the Russian Empire as the Ferghana Region. In 1881-1884 lands inhabited by the Turkmens were annexed to Russia, and in the 1885 of the East Pamir. 1887 and 1895 Agreements Russian and Afghan possessions were distinguished between the Amu Darya and the Pamirs.
      As a result of a short (November 1939 - March 1940), but heavy war with Finland, part of the Karelian Isthmus with Vyborg, the northwestern coast of Lake Ladoga, some islands in the Gulf of Finland, the Hanko Peninsula was leased for military organization -sea base, which was strengthened the security of Leningrad. On the Kola Peninsula, part of the Rybachy Peninsula became part of the USSR. Finland has confirmed its restrictions on the deployment of armed forces on the coast of the Barents Sea, which strengthened the security of Murmansk.
      In 1940, at the request of the Soviet government, Romania returned Bessarabia, which was part of the Russian Empire, on the basis of which, together with the territories of the left bank of the Dniester (Moldavian ASSR), the Union Moldavian Republic was organized.
      By the decision of the Potsdam Conference, the territory of East Prussia was divided between Poland and the USSR. The northern part of East Prussia with Koenigsberg became part of the USSR, on the basis of which the Kaliningrad Region of the RSFSR was formed.

      As a result of the defeat of Japan in World War II, Russia regained South Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands.

      Now the question. And if Russia changes its mind and returns for "its own" and it will not only be Crimea? lol And you say double standards

    Mattis decided to plunge into history

    The new headquarters of the alliance on the territory of the former airfield opposite the old building. The total area of ​​the current headquarters is 250 thousand square meters, and the total amount of construction was more than 1 billion euros. The building was designed by the American firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

    One gets the impression that the United States approved the position that the history of mankind began in the 1776 year. Moreover, the old people in power in this country decided to return the whole world to this year and begin to write history anew as they please.
    I must say that the Swedes can believe in the delirium of the mentally ill and again wish the "reunification" of Sweden with Finland, which put an end to the victory of Russia in the Northern War of 1701-1721, thereby freeing the Finns from actual Swedish slavery. But how does Mad Dog explain this fact if these events happened before his ancestors arrived on the American continent? It is difficult for an old man to explain this, beyond his strength. So he grinds all sorts of nonsense about the expansion of the Russian Tsar Peter I to Ukraine, in which the Swedes, in his opinion, ended up with a humanitarian mission, but were burnt heavily near Poltava in 1709. Lord, do not bring the Americans to repeat the Swedish path. Grandfather of this, Mad Dog, fellow tribesmen, according to the old American tradition, will be smeared with tar, dumped in feathers and rolled on a pole to Virginia itself. I would not want to see CNN's report on this.

    Surprisingly, Mattis forgot that the USA also fought against Finland, since during the Great Patriotic War Finland fought on the side of Germany, like some other NATO countries! Remember the story of America!

    Hmm ... well, of course you need to remember the story. The only question is to whom. In fact, the United States did not fight Finland in World War II. And even the war of Finland was not declared. It was not until June 30, 1943, that the United States Department of State issued a note .... no, not about declaring war on Finland, but only about breaking off diplomatic relations with Finland. Moreover, representatives of several non-governmental American organizations in Finland remained. What is characteristic is that the US ambassador to Finland, McClintock, did not return to the United States. He settled .... in Stockholm.
    Britain formally declared war on Finland. By coincidence, on the day of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (06.12.1941/XNUMX/XNUMX) hi
    But warned Finland back in November.
    On November 29, 1941, Churchill sent a personal letter to Marshal Mannerheim, in which he “regretfully” reported that “in a few days we will be forced to declare war on Finland”

    But really, Britain did not fight the Finns. Only once a little bombed by German troops in northern Finland. And apologizing on the radio to the Finns.

    Americans have never fought in their territory in their short history

    Well, not really like that. In the Anglo-American War of 1812-1815 On August 24, 1814, the British even captured, plundered it, set fire to the best government buildings (Capitol, White House) and captured huge military booty, including more than 200 guns.
