Military Review

A new era of British hegemony

74

“We plan to significantly reduce the deployment of our forces in the Mediterranean: from 1968 we will abandon the base in Aden and limit our presence in the Middle East to the Persian Gulf. Our forces in the Far East will also be reduced, and for several years we will not maintain a permanent British presence in the Caribbean or southern Africa. The current grouping of troops in Germany can only be preserved if the budget covers the costs of foreign exchange transactions. It is now clear to us that, in the future, Britain will not assume obligations abroad that would require it to conduct major military operations without the cooperation of allies. We will not try to maintain defense facilities in any independent country against its will ... "


These words, spoken back in 1966 by Lord Shackleton at a meeting dedicated to the future of British foreign policy, put an end to any ambitions of the country, which recently held the title of "mistress of the seas."

The collapse of the empire, the severity of the two world wars, the humiliating consequences of the Suez crisis, coupled with the growing social tension - all this proved to be an unbearable burden for Britain and its post-war government. In the end, London was left with no choice but to leave the scene, finally yielding to the growing power of the United States.

More than half a century has passed.

The UK is returning to the idea of ​​a global presence around the world.

This material will be based solely on statistical data and analysis of the British government's policy document, entitled “Global Britain in an Age of Competition: A Comprehensive Review of Security, Defense, Development and Foreign Policy”.

First of all, talking about London's claims should start with the fact that ... the world has changed. Our very environment is rapidly and imperceptibly transforming into something new, completely unlike the era of the Cold War. The influence of a power is more determined by the control of financial flows and logistics hubs than by the presence tank armies, and a timely “landing” of analysts, military instructors and diplomats is now many times more important than a manned infantry division.

The world has changed - and new global players are emerging in the new realities.

Modern wars require up-to-date means - and woe to those countries that will not be able to navigate in the changeable era of high technologies ...

The strategy of scientific and technical hegemony


Great Britain perfectly understands the realities of both today and tomorrow - science has become the main arena of battles between states. In the coming years, only those countries that can take a leading position in the development and manufacture of critical and new technologies will be at the forefront of global leadership - and London is determined to be among the first.

Britain's primary goal is to build up scientific and technical might. The British plan to achieve this by creating a favorable environment for attracting scientists, researchers, inventors and innovators from all over the world, providing them with legal, economic and industrial support to facilitate the process of bringing innovations to markets.

The second goal is closely related to the first and, perhaps, still sounds somewhat unusual - it is the introduction, control and promotion of interests in cyberspace. In the digital age, maintaining this kind of competitive advantage will be a fundamental component of maintaining strategic advantage in science and technology.

This, however, does not look like an unattainable fantasy - the UK is already a scientific and technological power with an extremely powerful research base, and ranks fourth in the Global Innovation Index (2020).

It is planned to achieve the set goals by the following methods:

1. The government has pledged to increase economy-wide R&D investment to 2,4% of GDP by 2027. In addition, at least £ 800 million will be invested in the creation of an independent body for high-risk and high-paying research - the Advanced Research and Invention Agency (ARIA).

2. Promotion of scientific innovation in the private sphere and abroad at the state level with the help of financial, diplomatic and economic levers of influence.

3. State guarantee of protection of intellectual property and confidentiality of research - henceforth their disclosure is a threat to the national security of Britain.

4. Full-scale development of the international scientific immigration program. For this purpose, the so-called "Talent Management" has already been created. Among other things, a point system of immigration was introduced, designed to make it as easy as possible for scientific personnel, skilled workers, promising students, etc. to enter the country.

5. Expansion of government staff - creation of government structures capable of identifying, creating, developing and using the strategic scientific and technological potential of the UK.

6. Create a strong and multidirectional network of international partnerships in science and technology.

7. Introduce commercial practices in government to ensure guaranteed access to a wide range of technologies.

The role of government in realizing this vision is to foster the development of the private sector and the scientific and technological community, including as a user and purchaser of technology. Government actions include stable funding, regulation and incentives for academia and business. In essence, it provides complete control over the process, from research to commercialization. Among other things, in his power is the search and selection of strategic partners and the creation of conditions for international cooperation.

National security priorities


This section of the UK's new strategy builds on the following four key global trends.

1. Geopolitical and geoeconomic changes. Such as the growing power of China in the international arena, the growing importance of the Indo-Pacific region in matters of global prosperity and security, as well as the emergence of new markets and the global growth of the middle class.

2. Hybrid Wars. Increased competition between states and non-state actors, manifested in growing rivalry in the international arena, the formation of geopolitical and economic blocs that have a negative impact on the security, economy and social institutions of Britain.

3. Swift growth of information technology, changing traditional approaches in economics, politics and public life.

4. Transnational challenges. Climate change, global health threats, money trafficking, organized crime and terrorism.

The strategy bears in itself a very specific thesis: any fight against this or that threat should take place exclusively with the involvement of the resources of countries friendly to London.

“The UK cannot achieve these goals by working alone: ​​collective action with our allies and partners will be vital for us in the coming decade.

We, in turn, will lead them by example, using our unique or strengths (for example, in the fields of medicine, science, green technologies, data processing and the creation of artificial intelligence), and select areas in which we can better help others. in moving towards our common goals. "

The logic behind such a concept is to have access to a wide range of resources even in the face of global competition - this will allow London to quickly adapt to changes, providing a decisive advantage in foreign policy issues. According to British analysts, the opponents and competitors of the Foggy Albin have long adopted a similar strategy for armament and operate in close conjunction, using military and civilian technologies that make it possible to erase the usual framework between the concepts of war and peace.

Of the current decisions taken to ensure the national security of Britain, one can single out:

1. Creation of the Foreign Office for the British Commonwealth and Development (FCDO) - a diplomatic instrument for effective interaction with the former subjects of the empire.

2. "Integrated Operating Concept 2025" - a defense initiative that is designed to mobilize all elements of government to address national security challenges, as well as improve interaction with allies.

3. Creation of international elements of cooperation: such as the Situation Center, Counter-Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC), National Cyber ​​Forces (NCF).

Britain plans to use international leverage to work with people around the world, combining so-called "hard" and "soft" power, including for operations in hostile countries. Comprehensive measures to improve communication with allies and within the government apparatus will make the best possible use of the public and private sectors and their mutual experience to achieve the national goals set by London.

A list of measures designed to ensure the international influence and national security of Britain:

1. Comprehensive strengthening of cooperation with the United States: defense, intelligence, trade, domestic investment.

2. Collective security through NATO: Britain plans to become the European leader of the bloc, working with allies to prevent nuclear, conventional and hybrid threats - especially from Russia.

3. Strengthening the capabilities of the Center for Counter-Terrorism Operations and the National Agency for Combating Crime, coupled with deepening international relations even at the level of regional law enforcement agencies.

4. Active use of sanctions elements of pressure on countries that pose a threat to global democracy.

5. Development of the "Center for Sustainable Development" - a UN initiative designed to fight global poverty. Britain plans to use its government expertise, diplomatic and trade capabilities to help disadvantaged regions of the world.

6. International sponsorship of primary education for women - by 2025, the UK plans to provide education to 40 million girls in developing countries.

7. Turning the UK into a global hub for services, digital technology and data.

Conclusion


Unfortunately, it is not possible to fit the entire volume of data on the subject of British strategy in just one material - this will not allow us to fully assess the picture of the future that the statesmen of Foggy Albion have planned.

In the next article, we will focus directly on the military aspect of strengthening the global capabilities of Great Britain - this information is no less interesting than the political and economic changes in London's actions.

Summing up, we can say that the UK is preparing for full-scale changes in the world. Moreover, in the new "multipolar reality" it plans to return to the ranks of the superpowers, using mainly non-military methods of expanding its sphere of influence.

International educational projects and economic aid to poor countries are by no means a harmless whim of the British socialists, but quite a working means of forming levers of pressure around the world. Where China uses huge flotilla fishermen with military training, London will use "landing" of teachers, doctors and economists, achieving this much more effect than could be achieved by military means.

A separate danger in the new British strategy is fraught with the formation of conditions for a massive "brain drain" - in particular, from unfriendly countries. Such a program has already borne its first fruits during the suppression of the protests in Hong Kong, and its importance will only increase - this may become especially critical for our country, which suffers from an outflow of both qualified scientific and engineering personnel, and simply young people.

However, such an approach can only be admired: in case of competent implementation, Great Britain will receive a colossal influx of promising human material - at one time such measures provided a huge advantage for the United States and China; there is no need to doubt that they will bring the due success for London too.

Improving demographic potential.
Implementation of leverage in the international economy.
State stimulation of scientific and technical potential.
Information technology development.
Interstate resource base in the field of ensuring law and order and defense capability.

Here they are - new world warfare.

A war for which our opponents are already preparing.

      Lure students from country N

      Alas, nowadays the measure of success is the number of carts filled with goods in the supermarket that an individual can purchase, success is measured by cars and square meters, the urban environment, there is no escape from this.
      And if we consider an increase in the retirement age, a tax maneuver to exempt compradors from taxes on raw materials, a refusal from a progressive tax, and an increase in the number of billionaires as a response from the Russian Federation, then the Russian Federation is dramatically losing.
      For example, the typical approach of the oligarch owner of nornickel led to an accident and an environmental disaster, the oligarch practically did not invest a penny to replace equipment for 30 years.

      At the same time, Potanin is recognized as one of the richest Russians with a fortune of 30 mln. USD Russia has no use from the wealth of the oligarch, only losses.
      Apple has built an office building for employees with fitness rooms and a park to create a high-quality working environment for employees.
      There is not even such a term in the lexicon of oligarchs workspace, alas, the Russian Federation has lagged behind forever.

    One small question, in order to get profit somewhere - you need to be there physically. This means a base, for example, in the Congo, which is never guarded by specialists, covered by air defense, and not by employees of the Ministry of Truth and Cybersecurity, well, and even trifles up to a heap such as logistics and protection of this logistics.
    Only in this case Britain can get into the domestic market, for example, Congo, or sit down on their diamonds there. Otherwise, how will it be in Pakistai, it seems like the United States kissed them on the gums. but Pakistan - Chinese and striped in the region did not stand at all.
    I’m just wondering, from which conflict, in theory, Fumbling can benefit from now? Before they hear "shallow, fall into the fog"?

        The time of the Naglosaks is gone forever. They (small-shaven and the USA) will face the fate of the Roman Empire, and instead of helping the dying hegemon and ruining their own country (like the USSR) for the fifth column, we should understand that while the United States, small-shaven and "our" fifth column "they are holding back" Russia, China is entering the world arena - that is who will in fact be the hegemon by the middle of the 21st century. This is who should be embraced in a friendly embrace with all possible: pipes, railways and Northern sea routes, etc., and not resist this.

          You are completely wrong about the strategic situation, Boris.

          First, all of China's successes are closely related to:

          1. Large investments of Western business and industry.
          2. Initial lack of resistance to its influence.

          Now the "sweet life" for the PRC is over. These are only the first steps in the implementation of the global anti-China strategy, and Beijing is already beginning to look like a cornered rat.

          Absolutely no one wants to see the PRC in the role of the first superpower - even the Kremlin - China has already shown its inability to negotiate and the inadequacy of methods of influence. They "starred", not even having time to get on their feet properly.

              Yes, just the other day we wanted to "punish America", and our Ministry of Finance switched from dollar to yuan. But as a result, they once again staged a "bombardment of Voronezh": because of the sharp devaluation of the yuan, $ 300 million was lost from the NWF on the exchange rate difference, and $ 1,3 billion from the Russian gold and foreign exchange reserves as a whole.

              RUB 100 billion We lost people's money in an attempt to "punish the damned West" and at the same time received an excellent example of what a wonderful and reliable ally China is for us.

            A very controversial statement, in the sense that the Middle East, Africa, South America + a significant part of Asia are guided by China in the framework of their project: One Belt One Road, and in a bilateral dialogue, and the balance of power is on the side of China ... therefore, when the Western coalition tries to impose an information agenda (to the whole world) with the thesis that China is alone and we are now quickly stumbling it, is wrong. The PRC has enough influence and connections in the world, and even its American allies try not to get on the rampage whenever possible, and some even go into neutrality (as happens with the Republic of Korea, if you study the topic thoroughly). But on the subject of the Kremlin, here you are generally bypassed .... Russia is moving towards rapprochement with the PRC - a fact, of course, this rapprochement is due to many factors, but you can negotiate with China, unlike the West.

            In Great Britain, the topic is interesting, I am happy to read the sequel.

            Beijing is close to completing its security loop.
            their fleet is already capable of driving out any of the trade routes along China and India
            Plus, in cooperation with the Russian Federation and Africa - a serious provision for both the sales market and resources.
            And the USA began to look like a hunted rat, tk. it is already obvious that they cannot so toughly restrain China and the Russian Federation at the same time. I am not even talking about what is happening inside the United States.
            Much depends on Europe, however, the period of technological leadership for the United States is coming to an end - they can no longer deceive the EU and theft from the USSR has also exhausted itself.
            And China, unlike the United States, is seriously developing strategic industries, including science.
            With an almost equal budget, China spends several times more on development than in the United States.
            So calling China a hunted rat is not at all clever.
            And the last thing - almost all high-tech technologies require rare earth elements.
            Now China controls more than 80% of their world production, including in Africa, Kazakhstan and other territories. And with the weakening of the United States, which has already become a fact, its control will weaken and over South America and the United States will turn from a world hegemon into bankrupt England No. 2.
            When the Bretton Woods agreement was concluded, about 40% of the world's industry was concentrated in the United States. Now their share has dropped to 7-9% according to various estimates. So, in fact, the United States does not correspond to its ambitions and will inevitably collapse

      Otherwise, how will it be in Pakistai, it seems like the United States kissed them on the gums. but Pakistan - Chinese and striped in the region did not stand at all.


      For most of the last century, Pakistan has been inundated with American advisers, instructors, the military, etc.

      The trouble began when Islambad decided to get his hands on nuclear weapons. The US was opposed, and Pakistan lost its patronage.

      Moreover, Washington has revised its attitude towards India - it is no longer considered a pro-Soviet country.

      In such conditions, Islamabad had no choice but to get along with another adversary of India - China.

        Then the game of knocking China out of Pakistan began. The toolbox is Turkey. Britain is investing in their military technology. By the 30s, the Turkish military-industrial complex will be able to produce the entire range of weapons. Economically Pakistan and China are competitors.

          As a matter of fact, yes, you are right.

          Turkey is much closer to Islambad than the PRC (especially in light of the recent events with the Uighurs), and is quite capable of forming an "Islamic axis" with the help of Britain.

          So China, even in Pakistan, will soon have nothing to do.

          The Turks, however, successfully began to crowd out them in Central and Central Asia, and in Africa.

            At the same time, the Turkish economy is under the complete control of Britain; the political, military, economic elite are dependent or agents of the kingdom.
            Here's an example:

            Hulusi Akar (born 12 March 1952) is the most modern Turkish Minister of Defense and a former four-star Turkish Armed Forces general who served as the 29th Chief of the Turkish General Staff. Akar has also served as a brigade commander in various NATO commitments, including including the International Security Assistance Force in the fight against the Taliban, a deliberate force operation during the Bosnian War in Kosovo during the Kosovo War, and control of much of Turkish intervention in the Syrian civil war.

            Akar was born in 1952 in Kayseri, Turkey. He graduated from the Turkish Military Academy in 1972 and the Turkish Infantry School in 1973. In 1975 he attended Queen's University Belfast for a postgraduate course in international diplomacy.

              And China is betting on cooperation with Europe, including Turkey.

    London will use "landings" of teachers, doctors and economists, achieving a much greater effect than could be achieved by military means.
    These are the "landings" that the USSR used at one time, in countries liberated from colonialism, built factories, sent specialists, etc. And what modern Russia can offer now. For example, let's take the same football. We invite foreign specialists, coaches , doctors, trainings take place according to foreign methods. Foreign players, moreover, the stars do not come to us.

      Not so little as it might seem - but our powers that be are absolutely not interested in this.

      I would like to cite Syria as an example at the moment - it would seem that it is a country in ruins, an ideal opportunity to get a real colony with access to the Mediterranean Sea.

      The military operation, without exaggeration, was carried out brilliantly. Everything else ... it wasn't there at all. As a result, Iran is considered the real defender of Syria among the local population. Iran is feared, Iran is respected, Iran is given carte blanche in any matter.

      Tehran completely controls the Syrian security forces, buys up real estate all over the country for a pittance, gives loans to private individuals who want to restore business, brings its goods and products to the Syrian market, and provides free hot meals for the population in completely ruined provinces. Syrian youth do not want to join the army and fight for Assad? No question, Iran is recruiting young people into the ranks of Hezbollah.

      I think now the diagram is clear to you without further explanation.

        Chain stores that are mostly owned by foreign companies? It is no coincidence that I cited football as an example, but we have almost no more of our own, we buy seedlings abroad. Yes, it was possible to reduce the Iranian influence in Syria, if only in the mind. But let's not forget that Syrian-Iranian relations have developed not recently. During the Iran-Iraq war, Syria actively supported Iran and these ties grew stronger, so you should not be surprised at the influence of Iran in Syria. And funny, yes, during the Iran-Iraq war, in Syria, the ruling party Baath and in Iraq, Baath, are very close according to the ideology of the party. Sister parties, one might say. However ... I don’t blame the British. They do it right. In the 60s, the last century lost influence, the collapse of the colonial empire, etc. Now, they want to restore what they once lost, especially the situation in their favor. But Russia, alas, is again a weak link in the imperialist chain, like 100 years ago, in spite of the peaceful atom and space.

          But now the war is over, and ... and then what?

          In the face of the Iranians, the Kremlin has given up - Tehran is toughly promoting its policy, which, by the way, does not fit in with Moscow's wishes at all. The authority is falling, the Syrian economy is in a monstrous crisis, now there is a total shortage of gasoline in the country.

        We have a limited task in the SAR - it is to prevent the appearance of the Qatari pipe stretching to the EU. This could only be done by military-diplomatic methods, to exercise its military presence and help Assad to retain power.
        We have completed our limited tasks, there are no pipes in the SAR, we control the Eastern Mediterranean.
        The SAR is a rich country, it was an even richer country until 2011, while the SAR has not paid off its debts either on Soviet or Russian debts until 2011 or now. We do not know how to collect the debtor or receive something in return for these debts ...
        Venezuela is also a rich country, but even before the appearance of the pseudo-president and the chaos, it had not paid off its debt to the Russian Federation for the supply of B and BT ...
        Gaddafi sent us in front of the Libyan "nix" with our request, absurd about the payment of the Soviet debt ...
        Those. three rich countries frankly sent us with a debt repayment, and now you are proposing to start an "all-Russian construction" in the SAR ...
        Take countries that are as poor as a church mouse:
        Cuba - everyone was forgiven, they didn't even get the right to restore the intelligence center in Lourdes, which we left in the XNUMXs, in return.
        DPRK - forgiven 90% of all the debt, just like that, but they could resume the work of the naval base in Chojin, which we evacuated after the start of the Korean war ...
        Well, we don’t want to build an EO in poor countries, which we must, so we didn’t even beat out preferential conditions for our business to work in these countries ...
        But when we need it, we do it, albeit not at an equal price. We received the right to base a detachment of Il-78 tanker aircraft in Vietnam to refuel our "strategists" over the Pacific Ocean, instead we created a submarine fleet for Vietnam, which it never had ... and at the same time we did not give a damn about the opinion of the PRC, and Vietnam on the opinion of the United States ...

        Britain is overshadowed by the United States, against their background the shaves look faded. But times have changed, US policy is changing. They give up direct control, it is too expensive. Going to work with allies.
        Libya's noble example. The PNS is an officially supported structure of the United States, the LNA is headed by an open CIA agent Haftar. For PNS Britain, Italy, Turkey; for LNA France, Saudis, UAE. And they squabble with each other, not one decision can be made without the United States. But the States do not play a key role, the main roles are given to the allies. Transcaucasia, Africa, APR are the same.
        The result of such a game is Turkey, entered into an alliance with Britain (the United States is behind her, or rather, part of her elites). Britain sponsors the Turks, gives them technology, covers up their actions in international structures. For this he receives the "first night right" with the economies of the allied countries. Turkey, Azerbaijan, Turkestan are under British control now. A union of "Turkic" peoples is created, which is economically and technologically completely under the control of the kingdom.
        By the way, this alliance is clearly directed against China. Which is a direct and obvious threat to the Turkic peoples of Central Asia. Economic, cultural, military. China has already captured a third of Turkestan and no one likes what is doing with the Uighurs. This is the strength and weakness of Russia, if the rapprochement of the authorities of the two countries continues, then we will become a threat to the Turkic world, on the other hand, Russia itself can play the first violin in the alliance, creating an alternative to Turkey and Britain. But alas, the current policy of the authorities only leads to isolation.
        The struggle between France and Britain is interesting. She is very active in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Transcaucasia. Moreover, Britain is clearly much more successful. The strongest blow to French interests was dealt in North Africa and the Caucasus. Georgia under the French, Azerbaijan under Britain, there is a struggle for Armenia. As a result of the war, the British positions have strengthened and if they manage to crush the Armenians, then their entire region.

From the state No. 1 in two centuries, small-scale boys have turned into a gang of fraudulent losers who are unable to deal with problems in their own country, let alone beyond its borders. When the power runs out - all that remains is to scratch the tongue and shit on the sly .. actually what are they doing after Thatcher's "reign" .. Britain is not completely blown away by the heap of historical "past merits" .. everything that has been stolen around the world since the 12th century. But I think migrants will significantly speed up this process. The queen is no longer put in anything .. centuries-old historical roots have been chopped off .. all sorts of proshmondovki can calmly tangle the prince, pour slop on the royal family, and the local aristocracy does not care about that.
    Not .. The times are over when the notion of a "gentleman's word" had weight. Everyone lies .. to everyone about everyone, and even to themselves ..

    This, however, does not look like an unattainable fantasy - the UK is already a scientific and technological power with an extremely powerful research base, and ranks fourth in the Global Innovation Index (2020).

    I don’t know what kind of index it is, but let me remind you that Great Britain cannot even create its own ballistic missiles for nuclear submarines, unlike France itself. So in terms of the development of innovative aerospace technologies, the UK is clearly not in fourth place.

    Summing up, we can say that the UK is preparing for full-scale changes in the world.

      Reasoning with such primitive criteria, it is possible to bring the United States under the tombstone - they, too, did not bother with renewing their nuclear arsenal for almost 40 years.

      Building delivery vehicles is not some overriding task that the British cannot accomplish. They have no need for this corny - Britain's nuclear arsenal is not large enough to launch programs for developing its own ICBMs, and all needs are covered without problems by the States: this is beneficial to both sides (the United States has an additional number of launchers, which London provides at its own expense) and not is a pretty penny for Albion.

      Unfortunately, you have read the material just as inattentively as many other commentators who run to gloat ahead of logic and common sense.

      Britain and the United States will work closely together to advance national interests. Their strategic objectives and opponents are absolutely the same, and the distribution of "zones of responsibility" will help to cover all potentially dangerous areas.

      The strategy does not refute the primacy of the States, its motives and tasks lie in a completely different plane.

      Well, about the United States itself ... how long can you bury them, my dear friend? All my life I have been hearing that tomorrow the damned capitalist America will cover itself with a copper basin and die.

      Only, you bastard, does not die - which cannot be said about their rivals.

        Trump recently showed all Europeans that they are in the eyes of the US president, so there is no need to convince everyone that this "bundle" is eternal, especially considering that blacks in America have raised their heads and will remind the British who were the main slave traders. And the UK itself may no longer be in that form after Scotland holds a new referendum.

        China, on the other hand, is beginning to resemble a vicious dog driven into a corner - they have hardly begun to oppose, and Beijing is already beginning to lose influence and its few allies.

        This is good - let's see how a driven dog bites those who hoped that the Chinese did not have dignity and pride.
        I will just remind you how they landed an American reconnaissance plane, and now they decided to seize the disputed islands, and the United States cannot do anything with them. But you can believe that the Chinese will fall under the Americans - no one forbids you.

          the level of any country is determined by its achievements in the aerospace and nuclear fields


          In this case, the DPRK is only one of the five world powers in our country. Especially against the backdrop of the backward "southern sister" - just think there is some kind of economy, "soft" power, microelectronics ... nonsense. What a bonba business!

          blacks in America raised their heads and the British will remember who was the main slave trader




          You are already an adult uncle, you must remember that this nonsense about freedom-loving blacks who will sweep away capitalism did not work either in the 30s, or in the 70s, or now. A year has almost passed since the "BLM Revolution", the States still have not collapsed, and no radical changes in their political structure have taken place.

          Maybe it’s enough to rely on the fact that all the opponents of Russia themselves will take and die right off the bat? It does not happen this way, this is fantastic, and it is silly to hope for such a thing. We do not need to look for weaknesses from others, but to become stronger ourselves - and not exclusively by riveting warheads.

          This is good - let's see how a driven dog bites those who hoped that the Chinese did not have dignity and pride


          Where did you get so much fetishism towards China?

          It's amazing to see this from a former career officer in the Soviet Army. Ridiculous even, I would say.

          For the entire second half of the last century, China considered the USSR as an enemy, and not America - with which it, however, was successfully friends.

          You in the 80s, too, joyfully jumped and shouted "oh right now, proud Chinese, how we will break a little will not seem!"? Or do you enjoy praising the country that was the first to train and supply the mujahideen who killed your comrades in arms during your service years (you have repeatedly spoken about the 80s)?

          What kind of perverted love for nurturing enemies?

            I will not dispute your conclusion, but the desire of the South Koreans to unite is dictated, in particular, by the fact that they do not have their own rocket and nuclear industries, which is why they even agree to have two types of management and two economic systems in a united Korea.

            You simply do not adequately assess China, and I look at it as a threat to us, which is why I really assess it. And because of your love for Great Britain you do not want to see reality, but this does not surprise me, because Many people in our country do not understand at all what processes are taking place in the world due to the lack of basic knowledge of social sciences.

              Similar "processes in a different vein" have already taken place after the Vietnam War. How long did Soviet propaganda trumpet the collapse of America then?

              Only now it turned out that the "collapsed capitalism" regrouped and the Union collapsed, not them.

              So far, all the current processes in the United States speak of a repetition of the scenario: America is rearming itself, actively stimulating the economy, distributing goals and mobilizing allies. Unfortunately, you are absolutely blindly led to Washington populism with blacks, which makes your bragging about your education look very, very absurd.

              And America has always been our enemy - you generally surprise me with your childish naivety.


              And you surprise me with your carelessness - after all, it was about China.

              You just inadequately assess China, and I look at it as a threat to us, that's why I really assess it


              Eck you deftly change your shoes on the go and translate the arrows.

              I just look at Beijing exclusively as a threat to Russia - and given its unhealthy ambitions and inadequate methods, not only to Russia, but to the whole world.

              And we need to manage this time of active confrontation to competently use for our own purposes, and not stand with a jaw drooping from admiration, saluting the "proud and selfish" Chinese.

                It is your problem to believe the propaganda, but I worked in a different environment, there were no naive people there, and they did not pay much attention to propaganda.

                In general, you look uneducated in my eyes, but since you imagined yourself to be an expert, I will note that for your sandbox you can be an expert. But not in my eyes, tk. your veal enthusiasm for Great Britain generally suggests that you cannot adequately assess someone who plays what role in this world.

                  It is very nice that you stooped to blatant lies - however, I did not expect anything from a person who thinks exclusively in cliches, admires the country that helped to kill his colleagues, and is not able to give any reason for his position.

                  Change your nickname, please. Do not dishonor the memory of the USSR - you should not act so basely, denigrating the departed country with your rudeness, ignorance and arrogance.

                  If you were once an intelligent, thinking and educated officer, then, unfortunately, this time is clearly over.

                  Now you are not able to perceive the current realities, conduct an adequate dialogue and give out intelligible thoughts in response, except for the ideological clichés of half a century ago and the headlines of the yellow press articles.

                  I hope you will change your behavior and manner of communication - and, perhaps, we can still have a normal conversation.
