British admiral saw the prerequisites for a new world war

54
The aggravation of tensions with Russia is similar to the situation that preceded the outbreak of the First World War, which leads RIA News statement by the ex-commander of the British Navy, Admiral Alan West.


British admiral saw the prerequisites for a new world war


According to West, the greatest attention should be paid to the danger of the situation that has developed between Russia and Ukraine, where Moscow is accused of preparing for the invasion, and Poroshenko asks for help from the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

At the same time, he warned that the deployment of NATO ships could lead to the beginning of a new global war. A similar situation, he said, was on the eve of the First World War.

That is what led to the First World War. Although the reason for it was the murder of the Archduke Ferdinand, however, and then there was a policy of balancing on the brink of war
stressed the admiral.

He added that the conditions for a full-scale war had almost matured in Ukraine — it would begin if Russia began to use its troops in the Donbas. This general considers the main cause of world war.

But what will the NATO countries do at this time? After all, this is not an attack on the alliance. Do we want to get involved in a war with Russia over Ukraine? This is a good question. If we do not do this, then let us destroy Ukraine. In fact, this is a very difficult question.
noted west.

The admiral believes that if the West does not want a “hot war” with Russia, it should maximize pressure on it, including freezing the assets of every oligarch not only in Britain, but throughout the world, “not giving them the opportunity to shove money for tax harbors.

Recall that Kiev periodically accuses Moscow of interfering in the internal affairs of Ukraine and participating in an armed conflict in the east of the country. Russia denies the charges, pointing out that it is not interested in the collapse of the republic. On the contrary, the neighborhood with a prosperous Ukraine, which has overcome political and economic crises, is much more profitable.

      The admiral believes that if the West does not want a “hot war” with Russia, then it should increase its pressure as much as possible, including freezing the assets of each oligarch not only in Britain but throughout the world,

      The admiral did not think about why this has not yet been done? Because by arresting everything, the river for the export of money from Russia will dry up .. and this is not beneficial to the adversary ..

      Freezing assets of Russian oligarchs around the world. Bravo. I applaud while standing.
      This is exactly what Russia needs.
      The export of capital from the Russian Federation will cease immediately, and the assets of the oligarchs will flee to Russia to work for the good of the Motherland.
      With his stupid statements and sanctions, the enemy only strengthens our country.

        I do not think that the assets of the oligarchs, having come running to Russia, will work for the good of the Motherland.
        There will be other ways for the personal accumulation and enrichment of Russian oligarchs. For example, the same Russian offshore companies are already in Russia itself.
        And also there will be other ways of exporting money from Russia. For example, through corrupt migration services and through the foreign "labor" and "social" migrants themselves. Only the costs of the Russian oligarchs for the export of capital from Russia will be even greater.
        And how "effectively" Russian "managers" work can be judged about the projects of Chubais, Nabiulina, Kudrin, Medvedev and others!

        But they hoped for something else. A conspiracy among the political "elites" inside our country. To overthrow the government and, ideally, civil war. They openly stated this by imposing sanctions against specific individuals. Hence the forum of the "runaways" in Vilnius. Thank God so far it is not possible to swing. There is another option to fight with us to the last Ukrainian, in the hope that the number of victims will cause a social explosion in us.

        Come on. There is such a feature among Americans - "confession" - that is, you admit that your capital is "illegally acquired" in some country there, in this case they are transferred to a special account and kept there for 5 years, waiting for claims from the country in which "they were illegally acquired", if there are no claims, then the capital is divided 40 by 60 and 40% is taken by the one who illegally acquired them, having previously paid the costs of their "storage" and "official support" - the remaining 60% go to "tax" - now all your capital is "clean". And if there are claims from some state, then it is the American court that will consider these claims and if it considers that they are true, it will return the "claim amount" minus the costs of the above, and what has become will be divided in the same proportion 40- 60 between the "thief" and the USA. So, not everything is so sad for thieves.

            All the thieves who stole in Russia and then moved to the United States or Europe, there already have to share. They give there in total at least half of their stolen fortune for the country of their choice (USA or Great Britain, Monaco or Spain) to shelter them, turn a blind eye to the origin of their fortunes and legalize their money. None of our oligarchs, having moved to Europe or the USA, became richer there. In the very first years, their fortunes there were significantly reduced, they were given money there only on condition of significant investments and with minimal profitability, basically they were simply milked there.
            The famous Al Capone laundries for money laundering are a drop in the ocean compared to laundries that are organized at the state level in the USA, Great Britain, the Baltic countries to launder Russian and Chinese money.
            And no intervention is needed when Russian citizens themselves take out huge capital from their home country in an effort to heal in a country that, in their opinion, is more worthy of them and which suits them better than the country in which they grew up, earned / stole their money .

        Most of what was taken out will never be returned. RUSAL is not an example. It is most likely a bone to society. "Bearded man", do not be naive. Even what "works" inside the country works only partially. Yes, they do. taxes, turnover ... And the equipment, technical support and so on? Works for a foreign dyadyu. This is the example of the company where I work. Everything is German. However, it would be possible to supply a domestic one. But! The owner requires everything imported. The Russian owner.

          Are you sure about the fact that "taxes are coming"? If we talk about "assets", then just, taxes are paid by them in offshore, at the place of registration of the company. Well, have you heard anything about "VAT refund"? Russia receives only from excise taxes. wink

      The plan, I think, has long been known:
      - engage Russia in an armed clash with Ukraine;
      - blame aggression and attempt to capture the poor and the unfortunate;
      - Set Poles, Lithuanians and other Russophobes, as the first wave, in conjunction with the ukronatsikami;
      - further options. The Anglo-Saxons have plans for an open war with the exchange of tactical nuclear weapons, I think not.

        Then everything is clear too, no options - organizing a revolution within Russia itself, and bringing in NATO "peacekeepers" to "restore order."
        The best option for them is first a revolution, and then the introduction of occupation forces.
        But this probably doesn’t work out, therefore cannon fodder is prepared in the form of ex. Ukraine.

          A revolution is possible with weak power. In our cases, the notorious fifth column does not look like an abode of justice and retaliation (it has not yet been done in our minds, although there have been attempts). Rather, clowns, whose circus was no longer just leaving, but was sold in the flea markets of Heyropa. That's why I wrote about the options. Here it is ... The main goal, I think, is to weaken Russia as much as possible as a possible competitor on the world stage. The struggle for resources, it is at the head of the US doctrine. And a multipolar world to achieve an undivided divide only brings a lot of obstacles. That is why Trump is constantly rushing between China and Russia, pursuing his policy. At the same time in Europe, demonizing us and promoting our LNG with might and main. So, the current throwing can be attributed to the fact that the patient is rather dead. Sooner or later, all empires will have one not a comforting end. And the proof is history itself. Although you should not underestimate the Yankees. If it weren’t for a possible answer, we would have launched a trio of nuclear weapons carriers in our direction a long time ago, since there are already experience (peacekeepers ... uevs).

            Work in the direction of the necessary brainwashing by them is carried out, in titanic volumes.
            This is noticeable even by the tone of comments on various sites. Namely, there is an almost total dominance of precisely negative comments on any occasion and for no reason.
            This, of course, is just one of the directions carried out in parallel with others.

            Yes, you are right, the complete chaos in Russia is most likely not beneficial to the United States. But - here the process of weakening is so complicated that in extreme cases they will go for it, performing their maximum task.

    And they are obviously not interested in the question of survival. well, very confident in their "invincible" army. Ukraine is already sick of everyone, but the West stubbornly supports it using it as the same lever of pressure on Russia. The Russian leadership, no matter how delayed it, will still have to decide something about this country and the relationship to the West in general and in the near future. Otherwise, the West will decide for us.

    It is good that after the mess with Georgia, we woke up and began to invest hysterically in the army, which raised it to a new level compared to the zero and especially the nineties. In general, we are even ready for a big war. Only 10 years ago, the state of naked aircraft was much worse. However, it would be ideal to pull at least 5-7 years — by the middle of the 20s, closer to the end of the second emergency rearmament program, the Russian army will reach its peak and be stronger than ever. While the US Army, in the framework of chronic underfunding of the army (in order to keep up with us and China, they need a MINIMUM military budget of a trillion dollars / year, or better, more) so far is only degrading. I say in all seriousness, even now our armed forces, even without nuclear weapons, are almost as strong as the US army. At least in the theater of operations near its own borders. And if the trends continue, then in the mid-20s we will be stronger, lol. And this is without taking into account nuclear weapons, which at the moment is already slightly better than in the USA (though the Americans, of course, can destroy us with Strategists anyway; just like we do them)
    Also, China, to put it mildly, is not on the side of the United States

    conditions for a full-scale war - it will begin if Russia begins to use its troops in the Donbass.

    the power option in Ukraine is likely to be!
    That's a good question. If we do not, then let us destroy Ukraine. In fact, this is a very difficult question,

    those. the West is worried that Ukraine may return to Russia.
    here you have the prerequisites for a war ...

    I think it is possible to start full-scale hostilities in the period 2020-2022 (the most desirable dates for the West, because in this time interval of the able-bodied population in the Russian Federation there will be a minimum amount for the entire existence of the Russian Federation ...
