    You know, colleagues, 90% of these comments are just reflection. Consciousness of a monstrous geopolitical defeat, it remains only to be silly to joke.
    The USSR has passed away.
    The Warsaw Pact is dead.
    Eastern European countries joined NATO.
    The former Soviet republics joined NATO.
    Even "friends" in the CU cooperate with NATO and the United States.
    Previously, our soldiers marched along the banks of the Oder, now NATO soldiers march on the Russian border.
    The flight time of missiles from Estonia to St. Petersburg is 5 minutes.
    This is ridiculous! Let's have a laugh.

        Patriots are funny people. At the same time, they assure that the West is dreaming of capturing Russia, and at the same time, "green papers are worthless, Americans will print them as much as necessary."
        Why grab it if you can buy it.
        Dear, did you ever wonder why the colonial system collapsed?
        I will prompt. Just buying resources turned out to be cheaper than keeping the colonies in obedience.
        Why should the West take Russia? Who declared it when?
        Maybe Chubais and Deripaska pose a terrible threat to Western ideology ???? sad

          Now the United States has announced a policy of containment in relation to Russia .. Probably from a great love for the population of Russia ..?

            You stupid man, ignorant. And how do you like this:

            Report of the Minister of War of the General from Infantry A.N. Kuropatkin. 1900 year.
            Your Imperial Majesty!

            During the 18th and 19th centuries, Russia spent 128 years in wars, and only 72 years were peaceful.

            Out of 128 years, only five fall into defensive wars, all the rest are aggressive campaigns. So that the Imperial Majesty has a certain idea, I will start chronologically.

            The 18th century for Russia is marked by a number of military missions:

            - In the North West, the wars started by the tsars Ivan the Third and Ivan the Fourth last with the aim of recapturing the Baltic coast from Sweden.

            - In the West to continue the struggle of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich with the aim of capturing Belarus and Ukraine from the Commonwealth.

            - In the South, follow the path that princes Svyatoslav and Oleg determined to expand the length of the borders right up to the Black Sea. Separate Turkey and set the stage for further strikes.

            - In the South East, continue to carry out military measures by Fyodor Ivanovich and Boris Godunov, turn the Caspian Sea into the inland sea of ​​the empire and become a solid foot on the ridge of the Caucasus.

            - In Asia, expanding the borders in two directions is Turkmenistan and the Pacific coast.

            In order to implement these strategic plans, Russia conducted 18 wars in the 19th century: the Northern War (1700-1721), the Prut campaign (1711), the sending of troops to Khiva (1717) and the Lower reaches (1722-1724), the war with Persia ( 1725-1733), the war with the Commonwealth (1733-1734), a campaign on the Rhine (1735), the war with Turkey (1735-1739), a military campaign against Sweden (1741-1743), sending Prince Repnin to The Rhine (1748), the war with Prussia (1756-1762), the war with the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (1769-1772 and 1794), the war with Turkey (1769-1774 and 1787-1791), the war with Sweden (1788-1790) .), the war with Persia (1796), the war with France (1798-1800).

            In addition, internal wars must be added: uprisings - Astrakhan (1705-1706), Bashkir (1707-1709), Bulavina (1707-1708), Pugachev (1773-1774) and other minor ones.

            Out of 19 wars and campaigns with predatory purposes, 17 wars were fought and only two wars can be considered defensive. Defense (defense) was devoted to 2 years and 5 months, aggression - 66 years and 1 month. On Russian territory, the fire of war raged for 3 and a half years, 65 years of armed campaigns were transferred to enemy territory.

            In the 19th century, Russia waged 15 external wars and 3 internal wars. External wars lasted more than 67 years. In peacetime, 32 years and 9 months fall. Since 67 years of continuous fighting, defensive wars lasted 2 years and 1 month. The rest - 121 military operations - were played outside the borders of the empire.

            Over 200 years of war, Russia, which at the beginning of the 18th century had only 12 million people, has turned into a state, which in the current 1900 has 132 million people.
            ----------------------------------
            We just defended ourselves, yes ??????

              You never defended yourself, but always tried to cling to the winner - miserable survivors who can only spoil stealthily.
              Yes, the time was so funny - you won’t move the troops first - they will devour them for a sweet soul. Therefore, one should not lament here about aggressive Russia - Akhedzhakova is unlikely to wander here to ask for forgiveness.

                But in the cities, then the RSFSR, millions of people took to the streets, and sincerely supported the declaration of Russian sovereignty. And now these same people regret the collapse of the USSR, they blame someone there. So funny.
