Pentagon Concerned: 46 Percent of US Military and Their Families Consider Russia Ally

61

Unexpected survey results published in the USA. The American media resource Voice of America reports that the survey was conducted among US Army personnel and members of their families and related to their attitude towards Russia and the Russian military.


As it turns out, 46 percent of the American military and their families surveyed not only do not consider Russia as an enemy, but on the contrary, they are sure that Russia is an ally of the United States.

53% of respondents consider the Russian Federation to be the enemy of America.

At the same time, it is stated that 46 of the percent who called the Russian Federation an ally of the United States is a record figure for the last 10 years.

The Pentagon said that such "pro-Russian sentiments" among the US military "bother" them.

American sociologists have linked these indicators with the fact that US President Donald Trump “often says that we need to get along with Russia.” It is additionally stated that many US military allegedly "fell victim to Russian misinformation and propaganda." How allegedly the Russian "misinformation" reached the US military, sociologists in the US do not report.

A survey of Russia as a whole in the United States (not only among the military) showed that about 28 percent of Americans consider Russia’s ally This is nine percentage points higher than last year. And here, as stated, too, "may be the role of Trump's statements."

        Pentagon Concerned: 46 Percent Counts ...

        Lies and propaganda, we look further in google:

        US residents, who consider Russia an ally, make up 28 percent of respondents - an increase of 9 percent compared to last year. The enemy of Russia called 71 percent of Americans. sad

          This is not a contradiction. Do you exclude that the military can be more sober and friendly to Russia? In my opinion, this is very natural, because it is precisely the mass that is far from real understanding of things that shouts more often and more strongly. Civilians are more susceptible to propaganda and pseudo-patriotism.

      The Cold War years were not in vain. During this time, both sides began to respect each other. With the end of the Cold War, the states instead of the enemy had a bunch of "cronies" waving their tails, and Russia, which was close in mentality, was again appointed an enemy. From such a turn, the American military is born with Stanislavsky's exclamation: "I don't believe it!"

      History has no subjunctive mood. But, if in 1945 Germany were completely conquered by us, then the Germans would be the most reliable allies, which was evident from the indicators of the Warsaw Pact countries. The most reliable of all these Poles, Bulgarians, Hungarians ... were only the Germans of the GDR with their indispensable "Odrung" and submission.

    Civilians are influenced by non-state media, and depending on this they build their opinions in relation to Russia. In the US Army, as in any army in the world, official educational work is carried out. Weekly general meetings with commanders, discussion of relevance and the like. The survey results clearly show that there is no directed anti-Russian propaganda among employees in the US Army. And this is a complete difference from the Russian army, where soldiers are subjected to increased anti-American propaganda, building the Image of the Enemy.
