Washington issued an ultimatum to Moscow: in the spirit of the Cold War

84
US authorities said they were preparing to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Medium-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF) within two months. According to the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the United States will exit, "if Russia does not return to its execution."




This statement by the US foreign minister is in fact an ultimatum to Moscow, and its requirements are a priori impracticable for the simple reason that Moscow has repeatedly stated that the INF Treaty does not violate. Washington does not hide the fact that they are ready to speak with the Russian Federation exclusively in the ultimatum order.

From Mr. Pompeo’s statement at a press conference at NATO Headquarters:
The United States declares that Russia has violated the provisions (of the treaty), and is going to stop fulfilling its obligations under the INF Treaty, if within 60 days Moscow does not return to its full implementation. Russia has every chance of this, and we will welcome it. Until the end of the 60-day period, we still will not produce and place systems prohibited by the contract.


Recall that the contract was signed by the heads of the United States and the USSR in 1987 year. Statements by the current US administration to withdraw from the treaty even in the US Congress were criticized. In the US Senate, Washington’s exit from the INF Treaty is called a “gift of Russia,” since “Russia will be able to produce and deploy any missiles where it wants.”

This situation causes the greatest stress in Europe. After all, the Europeans understand that first of all the United States will transfer medium and shorter range missiles (from 500 to 5500 km) to the European continent. Russia will not leave this step unanswered, and the countries of the continent will once again become the main targets for the Russian missiles - “in the best traditions” of the Cold War.

      They are, of course, fucked up. But the world is one step closer to a great war. Probably the last in the history of mankind. And the worst thing is that this is done quite consciously. And this is scary. Scary is not for itself. For children, for grandchildren. Do those who rule the destinies of the world really have no such fear? Suicide ends alone. If the lives of innocents are deliberately taken, this is terrorism. Planetary terrorism.

                In general, I am not at all surprised at the ultimatum statements of Pompeo, the US Secretary of State, against Russia. He knows that which he does not negotiate and does not speak at all. Namely.

                Well, in what country of the world have you seen that a country's victory in a war is possible if its law on the Central Bank and its Constitution are drawn up by their enemy and act according to the rules and to the benefit of their enemy aggressor ?! How does this take place in the Russian Federation!
                Hence the arrogant confidence of Pompeo.
                And in Russia the people of the IMF (the structure of the US Federal Reserve System) are in power by law: i.e. "Marketers" are Westerners such as Kudrin with "kudrinyats" and the Higher School of Economics, Nabiulin in the Central Bank of Russia, Medvedev in the Russian government - and indeed, the entire Russian oligarchic "trade union" is in power with its "eggs" in the West!

Previously, even though Cuba was, right now I think even Venezuela will not agree, because there people with brains, unlike Caucasians, understand in Venezuela that if there are Russian missiles, then it will be the target number one! But Europe doesn’t smoke a campaign that it will live the least in the event of an exchange of blows, and as soon as it does not reach them that they are written down in consumables, in cannon fodder ...

      Well, why the frenzied !? Consecutive! Passed the social camp, the Union. There was the expulsion of diplomats and the arrest of the embassy, ​​and the Olympics, and the last major change was the outskirts. We have not defended our interests anywhere. So they are squeezing. And why not squeeze if the enemy is toothless! So we are reaping the fruits of our friendship. As soon as they abandoned the fight against them and went on the rails of peaceful coexistence, so it went, it went! Once they abandoned the struggle, then there is no strength. If you do not answer today, then there is no strength. That's the whole logic of their behavior!

      Apparently the INF Treaty will cease to exist, and Russia will face new sanctions and a new arms race. We return to the end of the 80s of the last century. I really do not want this, but how to avoid this is not clear. Even concessions from Russia, as history has already shown, will only lead to new requirements and ultimatums. It feels like the world is heading into the abyss.

Since the late 70s, inflation in the USA has been up to 12% per year. We almost defeated them. BUT they introduced agents into our leadership and played Perestroika as if by sheet music! The trouble is that no one is carrying out Anti-Perestroika.

      Not a bit fucked up. They act according to a purposeful plan - first to poison Russia, and then China and all the rest. And not the fact that they will not succeed - Russia today does not have an ideology that would unite people. In relation to people today, the Russian Federation is the same soulless, capitalist state as the United States. Only economically does not reach the USSR and the latter's ability to pursue a tough policy.

Demonstration exercises of strategic nuclear forces, with launches. It would be desirable to show the Poseidon, at least from afar ... faces of the earth, that would be great! But otherwise we will not answer anything, neither economically nor politically! Only the Russian strategic forces keep the Americans from war with us, only guaranteed retaliatory destruction keeps them in check, but they are losing their heads already, not there is even an hour when they believe in their safety, and therefore every time they need to be reminded and shown "We will destroy you in return, UNIVERSAL" .. By the way, there is a version that the Americans once already believed that they could destroy the Russians without much damage for myself, they say, the equipment is old, the army is in ruin, the crews and commanders are not trained .. but as you know, "Novomoskovsk" showed that there will not be an easy victory, or rather, it will not be an easy victory for the amers at all .. is it a joke that 16 mbr went to the goal in minutes ..

              There is no logic in your assumption. The question immediately arises, why did they bring the situation to conflict if they have such a chocolate relationship with the West that they can dump it there or agree on surrender? What prevented the earlier dump or agree. I do not see any logic.

    Well, you don’t scare us with ultimatums, we’ll scare anyone you want!

    "The Russian leadership may renew the agreement with the United States on the disposal of surplus weapons-grade plutonium if Washington fulfills a number of conditions.
    The agreement and its accompanying protocols can again become valid if the United States eliminates the reasons that led to a “radical change in circumstances” that existed on the day the document comes into force. In particular, the United States should:
    - reduce the military infrastructure and the size of its contingent in the territory of NATO member countries that joined the alliance after 1 on September 2000;
    - abolish the “Magnitsky law” and all sanctions imposed on certain subjects of Russia, individuals and legal entities;
    - compensate for the damage suffered by the Russian Federation as a result of these restrictions and the introduction of retaliatory measures against Washington;
    - provide a clear plan for the irreversible disposal of excess plutonium. "

    In fact, after a refusal to fulfill an ultimatum, a declaration of war follows. But in the American world of post-truth, as in Through the Looking Glass, there can be anything, for example, the announcement of an ultimatum for non-fulfillment of an ultimatum for a period of 60 days, and then a vote of no confidence for non-fulfillment of ultimatums. By the way, in accordance with the terms of the meaning in the American concept there is no need - the words are used to cover up the actions of the hands, like all thimbles.

    The withdrawal from the INF Treaty is really, in fact, directed against the EU, since it even more "frightens" the Europeans with a "terrible" Russia and forces the EU to continue to keep American forces on the territory of Europe for "protection", that is, to keep NATO, plus - "revolution "In Paris, the CIA is playing against Macron, the main apologist for EuroNATO.

    I really wanted to see an article on Novator 9M729 missiles recently adopted for service on Military Review. It is because of them all the fuss.
    This ground-based missile according to US intelligence has an increased range of more than 500 km. Ours deny this, but apparently the Americans know enough about this project (at full refueling, the rocket has an approximate range of Caliber, and the design is similar). It is still complicated by the fact that this missile was launched from the Iskander complex - according to the INF Treaty, now the Americans have the right to demand the reduction and destruction of this complex, since its radius of operation has exceeded 500 km.
    Apparently our leadership will not take this step, therefore the INF Treaty is doomed. There is no smoke without fire and ... better keep your secrets ...

    take care of yourself (this will take care of me), otherwise I will have to dig graves in addition to trenches (old me, I can die on a shovel). It's time for our management to answer the questions of the "American partners" with the same words (or maybe in Khrushchev's way), and not lick the star-striped anus. If we are considered a world evil, maybe it's time to become a "world evil"? not liberals or liberals interfere, but children and money and huts over the hill,

    But that's not always the case. It happens that the "leaders" of various sects, ending with suicide, take their faithful followers with them to the next world. The twentieth century has provided ample examples of this. But when governments start doing it ...
    It's hard to believe that the world has lost its mind so much. Although, the devil only knows, politics is poker, and who is bluffing here and who is playing seriously, we are not given to know. Nobody will open the cards, we have no admission. I would not be in a hurry with conclusions, and even more so with ravorchik like "hats" we will throw it. We'll throw it in, and they'll throw it at us - do you want it? Children, your grandchildren? It is ridiculous to read the posts of seemingly adults about how good it would be to fight. Go to Donbass and fight even "with weapons from your personal closet," no one bothers you, but this, of course, will be more serious than wagging with tongues here.

    Everything is logical according to their long-term strategy plan
    briefly them
    BASIC PRINCIPLES
    To limit as much as possible the threat of a preventive or retaliatory military strike against the United States from one or a group of geopolitical opponents who correctly assessed the source and scale of the threat, primarily Russia and China.
    Gain exclusive access to the energy, raw materials and labor resources of both Americas, sufficient for the comfortable functioning of the US economy in a semi-autonomous mode for a long period of time. This should allow the United States to maintain internal stability and economic power in the face of the destruction of most world economic ties and even in the event of a complete economic blockade.
    To completely destabilize the Big East in order to radically limit the energy supply to the main existing and potential competitors and opponents of the United States - the EU, China, Japan, India, and Southeast Asian countries. This will not only provoke destructive economic crises in these countries and unions, but also significantly limit the ability of the economies of these countries to recover, as well as reduce their combat effectiveness.
    Provoke social, interethnic and interfaith conflicts, including large-scale acts of civil disobedience, riots, massive terrorist attacks, aggressive separatism and even civil wars, on the territory of the main existing and potential competitors and opponents of the United States. This will allow weakening state power as much as possible, causing damage to the economy and linking the military resources of these countries.
    If possible, provoke a military clash between the main existing and potential competitors and opponents of the United States among themselves or with other countries, or at least initiate numerous regional conflicts on their periphery in order to link their military and economic resources.
    To inflict a disarming military strike on countries that present a real, but still limited military threat to the United States, eliminating their military and industrial infrastructure - primarily China. To ensure economic isolation and strangulation of countries representing a full-scale military threat to the United States - primarily Russia, without getting involved with them in a real war, which could result in unacceptable damage.
    After some stabilization of the situation in the world, begin to consistently implement the new Marshall plan in the Near and Middle East, Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia, etc., introducing new long-term political and economic mechanisms of colonial control and taxation.
    When you have to choose between bad and worst, they usually choose ... a chessboard on the head.

    Quote: "The Europeans understand that the first thing the US will do is to deploy medium and shorter-range missiles (from 500 to 5500 km) to the European continent. Russia will not leave this step unanswered, and the countries of the continent will again turn into the main targets for Russian missiles -" the best traditions of the "Cold War"
    Then the question begs itself - well, what conclusions for the countries of the European continent will make for themselves and the states?
    Or will they again be prompted by Washington?

    It is not clear why the Americans need this. No matter how many medium-range missiles they deploy in Europe, this will not be able to level the fundamental parity of deterrence of nuclear forces.

    Therefore, the most likely conclusion is that they are trying to impose the most unilateral (for Russia) arms race to weaken the economy. Which also seems unlikely, because at the moment it is impossible to radically change the balance of forces.

    The idea, apparently, is to force the production of new expensive weapons to be boosted with the help of an “ignored threat”. However, they would have been adopted. Therefore, such a move by the United States looks strange, they essentially achieve only a vivid demonstration of their tendency to escalate the situation. Accordingly, a gradual decrease in the level of confidence of European elites in the US.

    The situation as a whole is a classic fork: if the United States does not exert pressure, Russia is developing quietly (let me ask a question: why is it bad?), If they exert pressure, they lose ground in Europe.
    It would be better if they focused on the welfare of their own nation and the whole world in the long run, rather than running around with Russia with their tongue sticking out. The impression of activity for the sake of activity, i.e. they just don’t know what to do.
