We live in interesting times. The time when, in order to scare the enemy, it is enough to launch a very small lie and watch how this lie in the enemy's camp will be made huge and insanely grotesque. I would call this state of "kneading dough" time. Flour, salt, sugar, water and some yeast. Mix thoroughly and watch as a "living creature" comes out of the pan onto the table.
Talking with various people who, willy-nilly, are forced today to take an interest in politics and defense issues of the country, since the regime of self-isolation, quarantine and increased activity of our and Western media contributes to this, I heard once again about the terrible plan "Anaconda Loop", which has been implemented for a long time USA. The return of this "plan" has already become annoying, to be honest.
The most modern (youth) part of the interlocutors talk about how NATO battalions located, for example, in the Baltic states, became a real threat to Moscow, St. Petersburg and even a bunch of Russian cities located on the European territory of our country. They reinforce their stories with “studies” of experts who, with a curvimeter in their hands, carefully calculated the distance from the location of BTG to these cities.
Others, those who once went to the army and still remember their service, speak of the economic strangulation of our country and the need “yesterday” to create “our own production of everything”, as it was in the USSR. Moreover, such production is not for us, but they were catching up with us. I agree to this option. But I doubt that 146 million of Russia's population are entirely scientific and design geniuses and Stakhanovites in production.
Anaconda that acts like a worm
Once, during the Soviet Union, in any house there was an atlas of peace. Not because everyone was interested in other countries. Just Soviet schoolchildren studied geography and such atlases were necessary. Children grew up, and maps remained.
And most Soviet people understood very well, looking at the political map of the world, that our enemies would not succeed with the Anaconda. There are countries that the snake cannot “devour”. Imagine a fight between a boa constrictor and an elephant? Who will run away from whom? Certainly not an elephant.
A snake differs from a worm in that it cannot stretch, thereby increasing its own growth. And the USSR, with huge size, had a huge border in the Arctic. Where not even the craziest western warriors popped into. "Anaconda" on the southern borders could not be stretched to cover the north and close the blockade.
I can imagine how a Yakut schoolboy was afraid on the long winter evenings of the arrival of the American, European or some other army ... Probably, only the Siberian hunter in the taiga was more afraid of him, wandering his hunting grounds for a hundred or two square kilometers. Or a highlander in the Caucasus, sitting on a stone, looking at a flock of sheep and looking at the clouds from above.
How will the American Tanks make your way along the path that the wild mountain rams trod on? .. How will American armored vehicles drive along the taiga roads that appeared in the 30s because geologists drove an all-terrain vehicle there? .. And what will Yakuts do to freeze frozen jeeps of enemy soldiers, simply because metal breaks at Yakut temperatures ...
Do you think a Muscovite or a Leningrader was afraid for his city? No, they were afraid for the European capitals, for the American capital. Just because every Saturday I went to the dacha and saw how the skies of these cities were protected from possible people who wanted to throw some muck there. At the same time, knowing well that, for example, the American capital in this respect looks like a cowboy in a bath. Nothing but a hat ...
However, the whole problem is that today there is no country in which hunters, fishermen and schoolchildren "did not worry about security." She is not. She was shaken, eroded, ruined. Moreover, without the direct intervention of NATO battalion tactical groups. It turned out that the BTGs are not unified ...
What is happening today in world politics is just a continuation of a long-standing campaign against our people. And it began not today, not yesterday, and not even the day before yesterday. This campaign has always been against us! Periodically passing into the phase of a hot war. Just today the type of conflict has changed. This is due to the development of weapons systems and the creation of a global economic system, which includes us.
Opponents of Russia have always tried to destroy and destroy us as a single state. This was partially possible in 1991. From the USSR, "pinched" the edges and went full-blown collapse, which is still wacking to this day.
We were preparing to defend ourselves with machine guns and missiles, and we were destroyed by chewing gum and plastic bags with beautiful pictures, jeans and Japanese watches, cars and TVs. And the most vile, we understood how we understand today how this is done. Only here, the top political leadership did not consider the danger serious. Anaconda is not outside of Russia, an anaconda is inside.
What a real Anaconda looks like. Country Exhaustion Strategy
What I am talking about today can be clearly seen in today's Ukraine. If we use modern terms, then we can put it this way: the hybrid war of the West against Ukraine led to the victorious color revolution. The West has been preparing a “fifth column” in the country for quite a long time and has grown protest sentiments, especially among young people, which have led to the loss of Ukraine's sovereignty and the establishment of complete Western control over this country.
It is very unpleasant to realize that you are being used as a floor rag. However, this is exactly how the conditions for a coup are created. So it was during the collapse of the USSR, it was so in Iraq, so it was in Ukraine and many other countries. Remember the level of those officials and politicians who spoke at the head of these coups. This is far from the middle link of the country's leadership. And, in the case of the USSR, this is, in fact, the country's leader himself.
How the fifth column is formed is known. Nobody canceled bribery, blackmail, intimidation and other well-known methods of recruitment.
A stealing official, a loving politician, an eternally cash-poor general ... After all, that was exactly so. That is why the state spends so much effort to identify such people. That is why experts work to identify weaknesses of officials and politicians.
In addition to the possibility of using "their own man" in the future to seize power, specialists, even during the period of preparation for a coup, receive information of great importance from him. This is information about the weak points of the state, where you need to hit. How to hit is already decided depending on the phase of work.
The second most important link, which can be arbitrarily called an integral part of the “Anaconda,” are the media. The information war, which is being waged even now, at this moment, plays no less important role than tanks and planes. Remember how many of our young people suddenly went to study in the United States and other Western countries. How, after the collapse of the USSR, the entire democratic world became preoccupied with the "dense illiteracy" of Soviet youth.
Do not think that the young people who studied in the West are all traitors and “fighters of the invisible front.” No, there are not enough of them. And "they study at the famous" universities ". The rest, on the other hand, create a general background of a friendly attitude towards the chosen victim country. However, during the coup d'etat, it is precisely the graduates of Western universities who become "mouthpieces of truth." Remember those who called on youth to the Maidan.
In addition to journalists, there is another imperceptible category of people that is being introduced into the country. These are specialists in the field of economics, psychology, political science and other areas of knowledge. It seems that these how can affect the human brain? And you look at the pages of liberal publications. Who comments on absolutely delusional articles of liberal economists “from the plow”, “Wikipedists” historians, politicians from the first year of high school.
You will definitely see a doctor of sciences, a candidate of sciences, even an academician of some academy. Agree, the authority of a scientific title magically affects part of the country's population. Sharikov's "we did not study at universities" is still pronounced by some of us with pride. But even such people listen to the "learned man".
This also includes pseudo-religious organizations, hackers, bloggers, criminal structures. This is a great way to influence people's minds.
Well, and the third part of the studied "snake". The actual military component. Here the work is carried out in two directions. First: replacing weapons with a better Western one. At the same time, the quality of the weapons itself is absolutely not important. There is a fifth column, it will help push this idea to the highest echelons of power. And no one has yet refused from "humanitarian aid to create an effective defense of the country".
And these are specialists in the repair and operation of weapons and equipment, specialists in the organization of an intelligence system, specialists in other areas of military art. In the end, we get blind faith in the power of Western weapons and disbelief in our own forces. Look at the attitude to the "Javelins" in Ukraine.
"Boa constrictor" in Russia
It sometimes seems to me that we deliberately do not see a “snake” that “warms itself on our breasts”. How much dirt is poured on Russia every day, often by those who live in it. How many fakes are exposed daily ... And nothing. We tolerate, we talk about tolerance. We are proud to say that we have more freedom than in the West.
They put him in jail for fakes in relation to the state and its citizens. It is there that the policeman applies the most stringent measures only if there is a suspicion of danger to his life or health. Illegal rallies and demonstrations are dispersed there by rubber bullets, stun grenades and water cannons. And we are tolerant. We do not touch the "children".
We do not notice the simple things that are happening in the world. What, someone does not understand why NATO's military activity is increasing in Poland and the Baltic States? Why did our "partners" move in the Arctic, on the southern borders, in the Black Sea. Why is the second US missile defense position area in Poland equipped?
Or does someone not understand why the problem of the war in Ukraine is not being solved? In the Caucasus? In Central Asia? We forgot whose control the Balkans are? I don’t want to remember about the “distant frontiers”, like Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela. Frankly anti-Russian actions are being deployed there. This means that soon it can "roll" in some way to us.
How to work with Anaconda
First of all, it's time to really start identifying the sources of funding for the protest movement as such. This must be done because it is these sources that also finance the armed and even terrorist groups. Moreover, it is not necessary to blame everything on the West. Judging by some well-known opposition organizations, the mechanisms for using internal Russian opportunities have been debugged. Everyone knows about this and even talks about it, but no one is trying to block these sources. Sometimes very big politicians, bureaucrats, economists defend the interests of people who are not at all Russian, make decisions that run counter to national interests, and strike the most vulnerable categories of Russians, even worse than any "inappropriate" opposition. Such figures, in fact, are the embodiment of the notorious "Anaconda", which strives to tighten several rings on the body of Russia.
Hence the next step. It is necessary to identify leaders who can not only lead protests in the active phase, but also reduce the situation to widespread popular discontent. Not those who are heard today, these are most often just talking heads, but those who are prepared specifically for a power grab of power.
Continuing further, the following problem follows. In addition to leaders, they also prepare militants somewhere. Tales that people who have never undergone military training are able to effectively use weapon in battles with a trained enemy, it's time to forget. We need to look for training camps both in our territory and abroad.
This implies. There are well-functioning transportation networks for militants, weapons, finances, supplies, reconnaissance and monitoring of the situation inside the country. They must be taken under control immediately. Override any opportunities for such activities.
It seems to me that understanding this is extremely important for the security of the country, for protecting the interests of the people.
