Pentagon chief criticizes Russia and calls for “not being friends” with China


Speaking at the Royal United Institute for Defense Research in London, the head of the Pentagon accused Russia and China of trying to undermine the world order and called on Western countries to make more efforts to counter these attempts.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that Russia and China want to undermine the international order by being able to influence the decisions of other countries in the fields of economics, diplomacy and security.

- he said.

According to Esper, Russia is taking “aggressive actions” in Europe, among which, of course, is the annexation of Crimea in the 2014 year and the creation of instability in the Donbass. Also, according to the US Secretary of Defense, nuclear warheads are on Russian ground-based missiles aimed at Europe. With regard to China, Esper said that Beijing is trying to expand its influence throughout the world at the expense of others and urged not to get closer to it. In addition, both countries are actively expanding opportunities in space and cyberspace, he said.

The more the state depends on Chinese investments, the more they are influenced by Beijing. I would like to warn my friends in the European Union against this

- said Esper, adding that China is not a country that is far away and its problems do not concern anyone.

          Not, dear. A little misunderstood what is happening.

          US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper called on European countries to make more efforts to resist attempts by Russia and China to "undermine the international order"


          And what is "World Order" in their understanding?
          They don't hide it. This is the complete hegemony of the United States around the world - the top of the pyramid. One level below is a vassal europa. All the rest are slaves of the third world, called upon to provide the "golden billion".
          I repeat once again. They do not hide this. This is the world order.

          Where and to whom did he say this?
          In London, Europeans.
          And the Europeans are quite content to be under US rule, but in the "golden billion." Europeans of course agree with everything said. They do not need any "revolutions". Everything suits them.

          And what does the US Secretary of Defense say to us?
          Yes, no. We expressed our point of view. We are not satisfied with this "World Order", and we will shake it until it collapses.

          ** The words "Europeans, Europe" should be understood as Western Europe.

        The head of the Pentagon actually said the right idea. In the long term (albeit distant), we must take into account the army of China, and its industrial potential, and the population. "In politics, intentions are not important, potential is important." And the potential of the PRC ho-ho ... And if suddenly in the future the United States strongly weakened against China, we do not need it either. Not giving oneself to allies with either this or that — that's what we need now.

    Well, how can one be friends with those who develop space and capabilities in cyberspace, who produce everything from pins to satellites and even in the energy sector were the first? It is necessary to be friends with those who, in the event of which, simply carry out sanctions and smash to the brim with their destroyers and aircraft carriers.

      Right. But, besides, Russia, in history, more than once, miraculously, was reborn from an unthinkable "abyss", but for example, Great Britain, over whose territory the sun did not set 70 years ago, is already flying into this "abyss" and judging according to the current "intellectuals" in power (you are an old jacket, and you yourself are a fool ...). revival, if it is, it will be very difficult yes

    Russia and China want to undermine the international order, having the opportunity to influence the decisions of other countries in the field of economics, diplomacy and security

    So far, Pin Dosia has influenced certain decisions of sovereign countries through sanctions, intimidation, and overt pressure by the armed forces. lol
    Also, according to the US Secretary of Defense, nuclear warheads are on Russian ground-based missiles aimed at Europe.

    It is quite possible that the gay-European missiles are aimed at Russia, but what kind of "stuffing", who knows. what lol
    Esper: China is not a country that is far away and its problems do not concern anyone.

    It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Russia and China want to undermine the international order,

    That is, they want to undermine US hegemony.
    The more the state depends on Chinese investments, the more they are influenced by Beijing.

    And if states depend on American investment, aren't they influenced by Washington?
    Classic. Do not dig a hole to another, you yourself will fall into it. The United States thought that with its investments the new China had grown up against the USSR, but it turned out that it was against itself.

    According to Esper, Russia is taking "aggressive actions" in Europe, including, of course, the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the creation of instability in the Donbas.

    Although you are the head of the Pentagon, nothing falls into the definition of "aggression" in the actions of Russia, in the indicated subjects. No.
    Aggression (from lat. Aggressiō - attack) - motivated destructive behavior that contradicts the norms of coexistence of people, damaging the objects of attack, causing physical, moral damage to people or causing them psychological discomfort.

    But the demonization of Russia is not growing from scratch, their analysts are well aware of the state and capabilities of our economy, and it is quite possible that they are preparing the next dragnet. It was interesting to read that they sing about China, about us, and so it is clear. There are suspicions that there are more restrained statements about the Chinese people in the bulk, because China is stronger than us and they do not want to anger because they themselves depend on it in many ways.

      For the dollar is dollar, and material resources are not dollars, and tend to end.

    One has only to say no, to the collective West and you immediately acquire the status of a global threat. Moreover, it is not necessary to attack anyone, just enough economic development

    Personally, I do not need his world order! I'm not happy with Chinese either. I need my micro world order, for which my grandfathers fought. These talking heads are furious! Bleed. Spit! Today is Friday drinks

    Espera's nonsense. This is the United States friends with China. China is the main holder of US government bonds, China is the main supplier of US light industry, 90% of apple production is located in China.
    For my sake I’m so powerful.

    Thus, dependence on the United States is good and good, and dictatorship on their part fits into their paradigm of cooperation. But if you are invested in China. it’s evil, because POSSIBLE China will have a political influence.

    What does it mean to undermine the international order? This means putting the burnt mattresses in the stall!
    The US dictatorship is already pretty tired of everyone, and Europe too! The United States is the source of war, terrorism and revolution.
    Nuremberg is waiting for US war criminals. Fashington must be destroyed! hi
