For the majority of European politicians, and Russian politicians too, the events taking place in Europe and in countries bordering Europe are of the greatest interest. If you look back, it will become clear that these events are clearly leading to a deterioration in relations between the CSTO and NATO, between European countries, between countries located in the immediate vicinity of Europe.
Today no one hides that the situation in the world, and by the word "peace" I mean Europe and the states of the Near and Middle East, is tense as never before. Even the outbreak of the war in Karabakh did not surprise anyone. As not surprising possible events in Transnistria, South Ossetia and several other regions. I understand that these words will sound scary, but the world is ready for war.
It is clear that the majority of the population of European and Asian states still hopes that the war will bypass them, that diplomats and politicians will have enough political will to resolve the conflicts that arise peacefully. Moreover, frozen conflicts are quickly forgotten. They don't shoot, and that's good. Karabakh has shown how illusive it is.
USA prepares for World War II
I understand that the majority of readers have now doubted my sanity. Which World War II? Mankind ended that war long ago and managed to lick many of the wounds received then. And the world has changed. The USSR disappeared, traditional enemies France and Germany are friends today. There is no confrontation between ideologies. And so on, so on, so on ...
But how important is it to start a conflict? In the same Karabakh, countries are fighting, which seem to be going in one direction. NATO opposes us, although today we are the same capitalist state as they are. The Americans constantly humiliate European countries, bringing them to their knees, forcing them to do what is beneficial to the United States, despite the fact that everyone seems to be allies. Any European willfulness is nipped in the bud by the roar of American tank caterpillars on the autobahns of Europe.
Today we will talk about what the Pentagon plans in case of the outbreak of hostilities in Europe. And World War II, as a term, was used by me to explain the plans, and not the memories of stories humanity.
Scary pictures of mutual destruction of the United States, Russia and China do not suit anyone. Tales that dinosaurs will die out due to natural causes will forever remain fairy tales. Simply because around each "dinosaur" there is a huge amount of small things feeding. Someone manages to snatch their piece even from the monster's table, someone is content with crumbs that fall to the floor, someone simply steals what is bad. But everyone is happy.
From a military point of view, NATO can be added to the "dinosaurs". Precisely as a European monster. The contingent that the Americans keep in Europe is incapable of independently waging a conventional war. This is just a part of the European army, which can be completely sacrificed after the outbreak of the war between Russia and NATO. At the same time, without striking any blows at Russia. Make big eyes: oh, how stupid these Europeans are, we are against the war with the Russians! ..
And at the same time, start a war with ... No, not with Japan, as it was during World War II, but with China. Fortunately, there are many disputed islands. And the Chinese fleet is not strong enough to drive American ships across the oceans. The fierce battles between the USA and the PRC for some atoll look beautiful. Two platoons show miracles of heroism ... And a minesweeper sunk by the enemy will forever become a symbol of the heroism of American sailors! ..
The war in Europe, meanwhile, is leading to disastrous results. Millions of dead, completely destroyed economy, destabilization of the political system, destruction of the social sphere, and so on. And then an American appears on a white horse. And from the side that wins. And it helps to "finish off the reptile." At the same time, getting all the victory trophies in full. Peace or truce is concluded with China, since both countries are tired of war and these islands are not worth such sacrifices.
Is the author a science fiction writer? Reproduces the long-worn plastics of the world apocalypse? May be. But then answer the author a couple of questions. Are there today among NATO members and any "graduate students" those who, with appropriate financial and military injections, are capable of starting a war against Russia? Are there forces in NATO capable of waging a conventional war with the Russians? Finally, is there a nuclear weapon in Europe?
Any point of view must be supported by facts
Those who remember the times of the USSR, who began military service in the Soviet Army, remember that the Americans never hid who their enemy was. Any US exercise was very clearly directed against a specific enemy. Not red and blue, like ours, but specifically against the Soviets. With the appropriate attributes, military equipment and tactics. Believe me, today nothing has changed in this regard.
Remember the announcements in the Western press about hiring Russian speakers as extras to participate in military exercises? Remember the Soviet MiGs from the former ATS countries that imitated the enemy? Remember the participation of the Ukrainian military in NATO exercises? Despite the victorious reports of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it was clear to everyone that the capabilities of Western and Soviet technology and weapons were being tested. No more.
Recently, the American Air Force magazine reported the completion of the 3rd exercise off the coast of California. fleet USA. The article, as it should be in reputable publications, was accompanied by a photograph of the American military, showing "good combat training and coordination." It was this photo that attracted the attention of specialists. More precisely, the specialists became interested in the chevron of the American officer.
This is not a cool Marine or a commando from Delta. This is the operator of the MQ-9 Reaper drone, better known to a wide range of readers as the "Reaper of Darkness". These "Reapers" are widely used by the Americans in the conduct of hostilities. So chevron. Skull-operated MQ-9 Reaper drone. Something in the style of Russian "demobels".
But if you take a closer look, this "skull" is flying not somewhere in the unknown, but over a specific country - China. For those who take their word for it, this is from the same series as the missile defense system in Europe against Iran. For the rest, the specific purpose of the exercises is clear. More precisely, a specific opponent at the moment.
What did the strike groups of the 3rd Fleet do from September 3 to September 29? Officially, surface ships, submarines, special forces and the marines were preparing to transfer significant forces to the western Pacific. Is it real?
Actually, the capture of the island, the relocation of drones there and the practice of strikes in unfamiliar terrain were practiced. In this case, almost all the available means of the fleet were used. Simply put, the Americans are working on scenarios of the past war, but with a different enemy. What I wrote about above.
Naturally, the probable enemy of the Americans perfectly understood what the Yankees were working on and why. According to information from Beijing, we are talking about the islands in the South China Sea, which are controlled by the PRC. The possession of these islands practically deprives the American navy of the ability to maneuver in this region. If today this is not so noticeable, then in the near future, when the islands receive the appropriate weapons, the fleet will have a very difficult time.
By the way, the Chinese also do not sit idly by. Between July and September, they have already conducted two exercises in the region. Moreover, the latter, in the area of the disputed (Vietnam and Taiwan) Paracel Islands, with live fire. What caused panic in the United States. Mike Pompeo, along with other US singers, even recalled the decision of the Hague Tribunal on the illegality of China's possession of the islands.
The Chinese politely listened to the speech of the American Secretary of State and ... continued their teachings further. The answer is a quote from the Chinese newspaper Global Times (a Chinese daily tabloid newspaper sponsored by People's Daily) that expresses the CCP's official opinion on international issues. Quote about the US exercise:
Washington is stepping up preparations for a war with China. This drone, which has committed murder and destruction in many parts of the world, will now be used against us. This is the strategic message from the exercise. It is also an attempt to blackmail China.
China warns the US
In addition to the islands in the South China Sea, there is another, probably much more important, stumbling block between China and the United States - Taiwan. The same, recognized 40-50 years ago, the Republic of China of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek. China considers the island to be its own. This provision is enshrined in the PRC Constitution. The Americans, on the other hand, consider Taiwan an independent state, although since 1971 its representatives have not been members of the UN.
The island is 150 km from the mainland. This allows, in case of recognition of Taiwan as a state, to draw a line of demarcation along the Taiwan Strait. And, accordingly, use the 70 miles that will go to Taiwan as a place for the possible basing of US ships. Today this lineage only exists in the minds of Americans and islanders.
One episode of confrontation between the PRC and the United States, which happened quite recently, is associated with Taiwan. The PLA Air Force has published a two-minute video in the style of Japanese anime about the battle for an island on which the US Army base is located. According to several experts from the United States, this is the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.
The Chinese strategic bomber N-6 strikes at the base with missiles similar to the Soviet Kh-55. Many of those interested in PLA aircraft chuckled. The Soviet Tu-16 is a thunderstorm for the Americans ... In fact, there is not much Soviet left in the N-6. The Chinese changed the glider, installed Russian engines, installed modern electronics, which turned the plane into a really dangerous enemy. And the Soviet X-2000 missiles (55 pieces) found in Ukraine in the early 6s were successfully copied by Chinese engineers.
The end of this agitation is especially good. After striking the base, the music is suddenly interrupted and after the roar of explosions, a voice-over is heard: "We are defenders of the air security of the Motherland and are always ready to stand up to protect its skies!"
It seems that what you have just read is some kind of relic of the Soviet era, transferred to another country. But let's look at this cartoon from the other side. This is not a blow to some abstract enemy, this is a blow to the US troops. This is no less a sign that the Chinese have also decided on the enemy than the chevrons of American soldiers in the exercises of the US 3rd Fleet.
Americans really do not want China to become a technologically advanced country with a good army and a strong economy. And the Chinese want it. So the scenario is quite shaping up. Bad script.
Instead of an epilogue
What I described in this material is just the fruit of reflections on the possible development of the situation in the world. The script is dark, from the series "if you want to live in peace, prepare for war." But we must be prepared for any development of events. We must understand the essence of what is happening around.
Tell the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh that there are no fools in the world today who are capable of starting a war, including a world war. As well as the fact that the people will not go to war for mythical oligarchs, money bags and other political adventurers. Go straight to the military registration and enlistment office in Yerevan or Baku and tell us.
I really want this material to cause a sarcastic smile from readers in a few years: “Well, the author, well, he did it. There are such idiots ... "Nobody wants to fight, and for some reason wars accompany the history of mankind since the inception of this very mankind ...
