British general declares threat of “Big Game” with Russia in new format

27
Russia is threatening to resume the Big Game in a new format, so the Extraordinary Committee under the UK Government (COBRA) needs to switch to a year-round regime. This was stated by the head of the Joint Command of the Armed Forces of Great Britain Patrick Sanders, writes The Telegraph.


British general declares threat of “Big Game” with Russia in new format


According to Sanders, Russia is ready to launch the “Big Game” in a new format (The Great Game, the geopolitical rivalry between Britain and Russia for supremacy in South and Central Asia in the 19 - early 20 centuries, mainly related to Afghanistan). In connection with this threat, he proposed the creation of a new permanent national body that will “immediately” respond to such events, and transfer the emergency council under the government to a year-round version of the work. In addition, in addition to Russia, China is also threatening a new form of the Great Game.

As an example, he cited the reaction of various government departments, which "incredibly effectively" reacted to the poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury and were able to unite "in a crisis."

Sanders warned that Britain is "threatened" daily by cyber attacks "from hostile states and violent extremists."

The creation of a situational center or mechanism outside of COBRA and the crisis centers that we currently have is an important part of enhancing the UK's resilience to the strategic threats we face

- declared the general.

Note: The UK Government Emergency Council (COBRA) coordinates government action in cases of national or regional crises or overseas events that have serious consequences for the UK.

            Interesting things!

            The Extraordinary Committee under the Government of Great Britain (COBRA) is abbreviated in Latin and reads in Russian, like "cobra" - i.e. poisonous snake.
            And in the USA, the Anaconda plan is being implemented against Russia, which means a strangling and poisonous snake.

            It seems that in London and Washington they think against Russia only exclusively as dangerous and poisonous snakes!

        The Britons milked the colonies, and we fed and developed those who later shouted “Drive your own Russia.” Here are the main results of the big game.

      Apparently, the 7th Special Division KIBERVOISK of Liza’s grandmother, created on the initiative of Theresomeidavoshka, ceased to satisfy the “new permanent national authority”. Very excited organ.
      It is urgent to "switch to its round-the-clock-year-round" service.

    government emergency council for year-round work.
    How he poked. I understand on a quarterly basis, half a year, and work all year round, sadyuga. He’s got a close-up checker next to him, not, again, “Russians are coming,” though with fiber optics, but at the speed of light.

    If a military man begins to declare something there and becomes a public figure, this is no longer a military man but a stupidly wiping deer in camouflage pants.

    Russia can be ready, only who is Great Britain today? A loose change in the game between the USA and the EU in the Brexit case? That is, in essence, an object, not a political subject. The General gives out wishful thinking. Now is another time, different realities and the UK has a different role, the role of the USA backing. And some generals are still trying to live the glorious past of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

      In fact, the whole of Europe with an aging population resembles a nursing home, being replaced by a younger population in Africa and the Middle East. And the countries also resemble old people living with memories of past greatness. The best years are behind us, and new players are already replacing them, ready to crush the old guard. Macron admitted that the G-7 is a relic of the past and does not solve anything anymore. The format G-20 is needed. And in general, a reboot of the entire world political system in order to meet current realities and patterns.

    According to Sanders, Russia is ready to launch the “Big Game” in a new format (The Great Game, the geopolitical rivalry between Britain and Russia for dominance in South and Central Asia in the 19th and early 20th centuries, mainly related to Afghanistan).

    It’s already the 21st century in the yard, there are already different rules and motives for games, and England is no longer the one to compete with us and say such words. Their greatness and dominance, with their sovereignty, they have long lost.

    The question is the degree of participation in these games of Britain itself, its role and influence on the processes, but they are not the same as in Albion. So sho iha COBRA can wipe his pants even from morning to night .. in the game she is more likely to play along, and not the main sharpie.

    There will be no domination of Russia in Asia; China and Japan are the most influential there.

    So the Briton slept through everything; he will not be able to push China out of Asia around the clock on duty in the building.

    UK Government Emergency Committee (COBRA) required year-round

    Nah, don’t win ... Let them try the round-the-clock mode, and without pay, like we are in the saints of the 90s! But then we gasp and worry!
