Nobody wants or can fight

Nobody wants or can fight

I once had a serious friend - an American Pit Bull. A powerful and beautiful dog, capable of protecting from any enemy and at the same time a terrible slime. We even joked that Paige (that was his name) does not bite enemies, but licks them to death. But he had a terrible enemy, the very sound of which caused horror in the eyes of a dog. A vacuum cleaner! As soon as the cleaning began, the dog ran away to his sofa, and no one could throw him out of there.

But one day the vacuum cleaner was "killed". Killed for wanting to eat my daughter. In fact, the daughter tried to use the vacuum cleaner to get something out from under the couch, but for the dog it was an attempt by the vacuum cleaner to pull her friend under the couch and eat it! And Paige decided to die, but to save the little man. And he saved. True, the vacuum cleaner is a pity. It was a good vacuum cleaner ...

Who will go against the vacuum cleaner


I didn't tell in vain history from his life about the long-gone hero Paige. We have written so many times about the power of NATO that it is high time to ask what is NATO in general? Who is this "vacuum cleaner" with whom we need to fight?

Today our position is no different from that of my late dog. There is a terrible enemy, and there is you. A simple dog, accustomed to sleeping on a soft one and eating straight from the tin.

Terrible, huge, rich NATO and we. With a bunch of problems, sanctions and misunderstandings inside. Zero chances of winning. Prince Svyatoslav Igorevich, the son of Grand Duchess Olga, Prince Dmitry Ivanovich Donskoy, Prince Mikhail Skopin-Shuisky, who left at 23, Peter Rumyantsev, Alexander Suvorov, Mikhail Kutuzov, Mikhail Skobelev, did not have these very chances. Vasily Chuikov, Konstantin Rokossovsky, Georgy Zhukov ...

And they all won! They just took and did what was impossible to do. Impossible for everyone except the Russians. Not with the help of magic or some otherworldly forces. Even without the help of any Europeans and other warriors there. They just stood in front of the Russian army ... Russians among Russians. More precisely - the first among the Russians ...

Today we talk a lot about how strong the enemy is. We count guns, airplanes, ships and other nonsense, of which there is enough in any army. We consider dollars, euros, rubles, pesos and all other currencies as a measure of the state's ability to defend itself. We count the number of muzzles of a person who are wearing military uniform today.

What for? It is necessary to consider real soldiers and officers capable of attacking or defending themselves.

It is strange to me that with a huge amount of materials about NATO's actions in recent years, almost no one remembers history. The very science of the past, which in fact is the science of the future. The well-known thesis about the development of human society in a spiral is remembered by many. Events are repeated in new conditions. As in classical literature. Plots invented thousands of years ago are simply described in a modern way. Modern “meat” grows to the well-known “bones”.

Not only Russia was falling apart


After almost every article on the topic of international relations, there are several readers who will appeal to spit on foreign policy and do domestic affairs. Let's instead tank or we'll give the money to the old people, build a road from one village to another, help orphans, and so on. And then there will be those who will remember about feeding their own and someone else's army, about the fact that they need to be confident in their own safety.

Yes, we have a lot of problems. No more and no less than in any large state. The myth that there are countries where all problems have been resolved has been debunked by the coronavirus pandemic. What was carefully hidden before has now become the property of the general public, thanks to the Internet and other modern technologies. After a video from the USA or Western Europe, I somehow do not really believe in the prosperity and freedom there. Just a different life, a different understanding of the same freedom.

Those who follow the events in the world have probably paid attention to the attention with which Western politicians followed the events in Moscow. They not only examined our military equipment at the parade, but also listened attentively to the words of President Putin and Defense Minister Shoigu. They listened in the hope that Russia would nevertheless agree to descend from the level of the victors of Nazism to the level of the vanquished.

They expect Russia to admit that not only virtually all of Europe (with the exception of a couple of countries like Yugoslavia) slavishly knelt down before Hitler, but the Russians too. After all, this is precisely what some are talking about today, even here, in Russia and in other former republics of the USSR, and now - independent countries. All this talk about the cancellation of the holiday and the transition to a European day of some kind of reconciliation is from there, from these treacherous thoughts. Sometimes those who talk about this do not even understand the essence of their betrayal.

War consists not only of victories and defeats, but also of everyday life


When in the 90s of the last century Russia was writhing from perestroika, when we cut in pain everything that we considered unnecessary, or what our "good friends" from Washington, Berlin or Paris pointed out to us, there were also talks in the US and the EU about unnecessary high defense costs. The enemy is defeated. He is bent over from hunger. He destroys his equipment and weapons. Why do we need a large army? A few combat units are enough to calm down some Papuans or Asians. Or what is left of the Soviet Army.

We talk a lot about NATO's eastward expansion, about strengthening the alliance's positions in our neighboring states. But for some reason we do not consider at all those countries that are far from us, but until recently they were, albeit not equivalent to our groups of forces, but still a military force, which, together with other NATO armies, gave us some concern.

Yes, the armies of Germany and France are still serious opponents, even though their armament is already lagging behind the Russian one. Even in spite of the fact that the military equipment is in a deplorable state due to many years of confidence in the weakness of the Russian Federation. But there are other armies, aren't there? Smaller, but armies.

What happened to them over the years?

There is the army of Italy, Spain, Portugal and others. Even the armies of the Benelux countries are! What is there? Will the alliance, with the help of these armies, somehow change the situation in the event of a conflict and transfer fresh, trained and combat-ready units to the Eastern Front?

The beautifully advertised deployment of the US Army will take a very long time and threaten with huge losses of manpower in transit. This is the very time and should, according to the idea, win the European armies of small states.

What the Benelux countries threaten us with today


Let me quote my colleague, independent military expert Alexander Khramchikhin, who analyzed the state of the Benelux armies in depth in an article published at the end of April this year.

“From microscopic Luxembourg, however, even at least something to demand was pointless, but Holland has created a very serious military machine. The Belgian army was inferior to the Dutch, but it was not zero either.

“Since the end of the 60s, both armies simultaneously switched to the German Leopard-1 (480 for Holland, 346 for Belgium). In the mid-80s, 465 Leopard-2s (including 20 training ones) were produced specially for the Dutch army in Germany. The Belgian tankers did not “mature enough” to this vehicle (they used the old Leopard-1 - the author) ”.

You can continue to list the weapons of these armies. Even in Luxembourg (!) There were five American V-80 Commando armored personnel carriers in the early 150s. In fact, for all positions in the Belgian and Dutch armies, weapons and military equipment were quite modern at that time. Warships under the flags of these countries sailed on the seas. The skies were guarded by the air defenses of these countries. They were armies.

Then exactly what happened, for example, in Ukraine during the early "independence". Those who were the enemy and stood at the borders became friends. This means that the army is not needed. Some kind of army is needed, which will walk at parades with a promenade and talk about its own strength to calm its own people. All other issues will be decided by the Americans. Armament has become a commodity.

“Neither Holland nor Belgium have purchased a single tank since the beginning of the 90s. Moreover, it is they who become the first countries to abandon tanks altogether. The Dutch "Leopards" are being sold in all azimuths; Brazil has become the only buyer of the Belgian "Leopards-1" (in the amount of 87 cars). A significant part of the Leopard-1 was scrapped. The last Dutch Leopards 2 went to Germany and Finland.

Most of the AIFVs of all modifications have been sold (the main buyers are Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Chile), almost all M113s are also sold out or scrapped. "

Again, the list of what has been sold or scrapped can be continued for a long time. Simply put, then:

“In general, the Armed Forces of the Benelux countries are symbolic values ​​and are incapable of independent conduct of hostilities. It is quite natural that of the three remaining combat brigades of the Dutch army, two are integrated into the divisions of the Bundeswehr. In this regard, it makes no sense to discuss the prospects for rearmament of these armies. "

Briefly about the prospects


As you can see, the Europeans are not going to fight at all. More precisely, the Europeans are not capable of fighting with what they have today. The Americans must fight, and the Europeans agree to "be in the wings." Exactly the same tactics that were already in 1939-1945. Only then did the Germans take the place of the Americans. All repeats. Nothing new was born in this world.

But the Americans do not want to fight either. They also operate traditionally. Let others fight, and we will come before victory and help the winner. And then we'll get our kush from the confiscated one. You can win, or you can buy victory. And then buy the main laurels of the winners. History is just what is written about in textbooks.

This is where the inadequate Zelensky appears with the ability to carry nonsense, like the speech on May 9, in which the people believe. Not all the people, of course, but just that, active, part that participates in the processions and rallies of the fascists. It is the part that will go to fight and pull others, dissenting, but silent, as it happens now in Donbass.

Ukraine today is just a pimple on the ass, which prevents Russians from sitting quietly. Naturally, Russia is trying to cure this pimple, while therapeutically. And her opponents cherish this pimple and support in every possible way. Simply put, it seems to me that it is time to go from a therapist to a surgeon. These doctors' treatment, however, is more painful, but also more effective. It hurts once, but then it feels good.

And what about Europe and the United States?

I will quote Josep Borrell, who just yesterday said bluntly that the EU was not ready for confrontation. The EU understands that Russia today is not a nut that Europe is able to bite through without breaking its own teeth:

"We reaffirmed our strong support for the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, but all countries agree that there is no need to continue escalating tensions with Russia."

“It is important that the EU does not deviate from its current course towards Russia and continues to protect human rights, and does this very consistently,”

- German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, also yesterday.

Everyone understands everything. Diplomatic work begins to search for options for restoring EU-Russia relations. The Europeans do not want to admit their defeat, which means they need a path with minimal image losses, which can later be passed off as victories.

In my opinion, the USA is in exactly the same position today. The policy of "Black Friday", when prices for goods are raised before the sale, and then, during the sale, they are sharply reduced, thereby causing the excitement of buyers, did not work.

Moscow is not afraid of an exacerbation and is ready to move on. It is not for nothing that Sergey Lavrov talks about new payment systems. It is not for nothing that Gazprom refuses Ukraine's proposals to increase transit to the EU ...

        As there in the catch phrase: “Nobody wanted war. The war was inevitable. " As practice shows, capitalism resolves the accumulated contradictions only through war, and it is not the Rothschilds with the Rockefellers, and not the Millers and Sechens and not their children, but ordinary Johns and Vani who sit in the trenches. The question is who needs a war? Probably a simple Vanya from Tambov really needs the Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits? In my opinion, there is only one way out - Peace to huts, war to palaces!

      The orders are just different. When they can, their orders lead to this:
      https://my.mail.ru/mail/rjcjq2018/video/2/4138.html
      Now it is solely the strength of the Russian army that prevents this from happening, and this is not a matter of nuclear potential. In proxy (hybrid) wars, nuclear weapons are inapplicable, how senseless it is to use it against IS or fascized Ukraine, if it starts (and it will turn up as soon as a command from above comes in). He doesn’t bother so far only because their owner understands that they will take off in a conventional war and lose all the advantages and positions won with difficulty.

      NATO cannot be underestimated, citing the same BENELUX as an example.

      The tendency of destruction of European armies is indicated by the author correctly.
      In my opinion, the main question is why exactly this situation has developed.
      And here I do not agree with the author. The point is not that European countries have no enemies left.
      The collapse of the European armies is the work of the States, IMHO.
      Having collapsed the EU army, the United States consolidated its occupation of Europe.
      And they were quite confidently preparing to digest this Europe in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
      The arrival of the isolationist Trump has confused these cards. For which he is so hated in the States. And he showed Europe "a face without a mask."
      The states, in fact, are implementing a long-term plan to finance their military-industrial complex by everyone who did not want to finance the national armies. A striking example was the US demand to pay% to the NATO budget "for defense."
      The program for the creation of the F-35 from the same series.
      The Brussels bureaucracy and the European Parliament are completely US-oriented. They don't take a step without a command.
      All major mass media in Europe have been bought up by the Americans and are pursuing their policy. Including in elections at all levels.
      An example of the well-coordinated work of the press was the elimination of Berlusconi and Schroeder from the big European politics.
      And the fact that Europe is not ready to fight does not mean that the States will not be ready when they see fit.
      But so far they have not yet "digested" Europe.
      One of the steps to "digest" is the severing of diplomatic ties between Russia and China with individual European countries. For this, there is a campaign for the mass expulsion of our diplomats, which strengthens the position of Brussels controlled by the States.
      The structure being built by the United States can only be destroyed "from the head." Some signs of the beginning of such a process appear, but so far the enemy is very strong.
      And we have absolutely no need to relax from the fact that while someone is not ready to fight. On the contrary. We must make the most of the available time for the all-round strengthening of the Russian army and navy. hi

        You wrote everything correctly, but this is not the United States, but transnational capital led by the Anglo-Saxons and one eternally oppressed people .. Look who controls the 5 most important media holdings of the world, who is in charge of the financial sector and everything will become clear .. The current model of the world order has come to a standstill what to do no one knows ..

          Yes, I know. Therefore, I mentioned this.

          The current model of the world order has reached a dead end, what no one knows to do.

          They have a plan. We would have been crushed according to this plan a long time ago, but we constantly confuse their cards with the Crimea, then in Syria, then with new weapons ...
          In short - "we constantly undermine the order based on" their rules "".
          And then China has unexpectedly armed itself. And it continues. bully

          the technological level does not allow yet to drive everyone into digital slavery.

          I'm not ready to agree with you here. Those who have fallen to the Internet and mobile phones - can no longer imagine life without them. As much harm as it comes to us from the Internet, they would not be able to cause us in any other way. yes
          In addition to the efforts of our leadership, I have hope, including the fact that "God does not give a horn to a vigorous cow." laughing

      It is quite obvious that most European countries are destined for the role of transit and logistics hubs in the confrontation with Russia:

      Pentagon begins exercises in Alaska, US troops will work out the landing in Chukotka. On May 3, a large-scale inter-service military exercise Northern Edge 2021 (northern edge) of the US Armed Forces began, which will last until May 14.
      Moscow is not afraid of an exacerbation and is ready to move on. No wonder Sergey Lavrov talks about new payment systems ...

            The question is not about those who are connected now, but about the ability to connect, the system has been tested and is working, everyone who is ready to work with Russia will connect))) moreover, the system works with more than one currency, but it is multicurrency)))

    Good article, informative.
    I agree with the author in most positions.

    And history repeats itself. Russia, in order to repeat that multiple historical success, needs to offer its own concept of life. It's just that the same capitalist country, like others, is not an option, it is not capable of raising us ... You need a bright and worthy, in order to be Human, with a capital letter.

    No matter how controversial (especially now, in discussions) the Soviet project was, it was filled with meaning and creativity! The first in space, the Great Victory, the created peaceful atom, the state of equality and brotherhood, labor and justice ... You can go on. And it is difficult to refute, although there were distortions.

    And many people all over the world followed bright thoughts. Russian was spoken on all continents (Australia and North America do not count - there are only specialists), and we have almost forgotten about it.

    Yes, they do not want to fight, and we do not want to. But, instead of war, peace, the Russian World, should become a means of development for us.

    All this is good .. just for some reason, the author forgot .. that in that year our population decreased by 700 tons. People .. and this will decrease even more. And there is no war yet .. but at such a pace it will not be needed .. the west can wait for years ..

        So .. remember .. how much has increased? Take the period before the 90s .. and now ..
        In the 90th it was 148 273 746 now 146 748 590 .. So where is the growth? And if you subtract from here the persons who received citizenship ... during this period ... it becomes completely sad ...
        The total number of new citizens of the Russian Federation is 9 million 344 thousand 394 people
        https://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/117852/
        Well, add Crimea .. (2)
        So it turns out that without the newly acquired territories and migration, we would now be 12 million fewer in comparison with the 90s ..

      Yes, this is another propaganda campaign from Staver, on the topic "even if we have problems, but we need to be patient", and in order not to endure it was boring, you can amuse your "exclusivity" with the victories of your ancestors. Kutuzov had zero chances, writes Staver. Why would there be a zero chance? The armies were roughly equal in number. Plus in our territory, with our climate and militia / partisans. And Zhukov and Rokossovsky had troops ahead of him ... But Staver, in loyal feelings, carried that he was like a black grouse, sang his mantra and did not see or hear anything.
      And the dog, I think, did not "protect her daughter from the sofa, which wanted to" eat "her," but chose the first from the "fight or flight" reaction, because the vacuum cleaner threatened the dog on the couch. That's all the "heroism" of the dog to the penny.

        There are vague doubts about the article ... Something in your critical words is certainly correct!
        The article is reminiscent of the trash of Soviet historians who (not all, but many) wrote in the style of "heroics of the Second World War." Those. reduced all hostilities into a chain of heroic actions of commanders and soldiers, although the balance of forces was different and the combat situation, the techniques were also not the same.
        Therefore, it is so superficial to assert that Suvorov, Zhukov and others did not have a chance to win - an unfounded and unproven stream of consciousness, designed to support the author's liquid justification of his thoughts. The thoughts of the author of the article, however, also deserve respect and understanding in general.

      I want to add that we will be destroyed faster from the inside. Although they say that older generations always underestimate young people, the routine work of the West to destroy morality, our traditional values, mentality among young people, and adults alike, makes itself felt. And this work began a long time ago and is not going to end. Therefore, I agree with the point of view of RealPilot. It is necessary to revive the ideology of creation, the creative development of man on the basis of the dominance of the State in all spheres, incl. and the economy, with the nationalization of strategic industries and the outsourcing of small-scale production, restaurants, repair shops (the sphere of service and maintenance) to a private owner ... Migration policy, the revival of education, reindustrialization ...

      Ulrih - Well, how is it "... the Poles did not fight even after losing their camp" - they very much even fought, mainly in the ranks of the Wehrmacht, more than 600 thousand Poles served there, which is an order of magnitude most of their "resistance" and Polish units in our and British armies.
      "Resistance" in France? = zero. Fighting France DeGolle, yes, but again in the formations "Charles le Mans" of the French fascists served many times more than in DeGol. And the Reichstag in the last battle was not defended by the Germans, but by these French.
      Occupied Norway? Yes, a whole motorized SS Viking division was recruited from volunteers from Norway and neutral (!) Sweden, and more than one composition - the losses in this division were regularly replenished throughout the war.
      There is nothing to say about Hungarians, Italians, Spaniards and other Romanians, and so everything is known, all the southern steppes from Moldavia to Stalingrad are dotted with their bones.
      Even "brothers" Bulgarians were noted - the Bulgarian units carried out punitive operations in Serbia - destroyed the population sympathetic to the Serbian partisans.
      And it is just "petty" to pretend that it was all the Germans who cut it up, and the rest all "heroically" fought with them

The peaceful life of Paris during the occupation can only be touched, there are plenty of photo archives. I will not talk about other "resisted". It makes no sense to compare the contribution of these countries in supporting Hitler's offensive with all their human and industrial reserves with the attempts of some (honor and memory) to resist. To resist not when the Red Army came (when they began to "change their shoes in a jump"), but for a long time ... I suppose that in one Battle of Stalingrad there were more soldiers on the side of the German fascist European community than in all the resistance of European countries during all the years of the war:

                hi

                You see, what is the matter, there cannot be competition, there cannot but be foreign capital or technologies that have entered the country with this very “damned” capital.

                In the current realities.

                And the proportionality of its ratio is regulated, among other things, by citizens who choose what to drink: kvass or imported sugar nasty. Buy made in China, but a domestic brand or the same Chinese, but under the nameplate of another country.
                There are many nuances.

                And I would like to note that despite the fact that a significant share of enterprises and factories in the country are managed by foreigners, this is not an occupation. They comply with our laws, they work in our legal field, and do not become impudent. And they pay taxes, by the way, pay salaries, increase the number of jobs. But in the occupied country, corporations will not abide by any rules and labor standards, including, only dirty enterprises will be opened and everything else will be imported. Like in the late 90s, when there were no screwdriver assemblies, and any washing machine or other household appliances were brought into the country from abroad.

                For me personally, the word patriot is not an abusive word, but the word Motherland and Fatherland means that my children grow up on this land and the children of my children will grow up, and it is worth fighting for this.

                And the system and power are transient ... people and their Motherland are eternal.

                Let's go fight for Pepsi-Cola, Coca-Cola, McDonald's, defend the screwdriver factories of foreign cars, etc. and the interests of TNCs, which have taken root in Russia. You cannot buy gold with "theirs". We will protect the Motherland, occupied by foreign capital, from further occupation.

                Why don't you remember DneproGES, Magnitka, and other factories built during the years of industrialization, because they were all built under the leadership of American engineers!
                The mobilization plan, according to which all factories from the European part left for the sites prepared in advance, I'm not talking about the foundations, but about the locations of the factories in the presence of existing logistics! Foreigners helped in everything, and it was not for the idea that they came here!

                  They bought it and paid for it. That's the whole difference. Dneproges, and the rest of the plants built, did not belong to American and other foreign companies. Do not confuse, by God, with scrambled eggs.

    Nobody wants to fight, but we must admit that the Americans have long lost the palm. The Turks are now winning everyone on all fronts. Therefore, it is better for everyone to stop waging senseless wars and start drawing closer to the descendants of the Great Ottomans!

    After the introduction of nuclear-thermonuclear weapons, any armed conflict is akin to collective suicide. If there is, then what lies on the surface why come up with inventions. Without an external threat, the military-industrial complex withers and degenerates, and to cut the budget money, oh, how you want it here and now !!! It has long been a persistent impression that the escalation of the Russian-Chinese threat has purely internal political and economic issues of the United States in complete isolation from reality, and if hypothetically, an "incident" occurs at the level of the Cuban missile crisis, it will most likely be an even greater shock for the "hegemon" than then. !

Maybe that's why no one uses it? Indo-Pakistani dances on the border do not count, there was no real large-scale hostilities and the declaration of a full-scale war there.

    The topic of the image of the enemy and rallying against him is an important political tool. It does not matter whether NATO or SHMATO, it is a real enemy or a fictional one.
    The very fact of the existence of an "external enemy" is an excellent lever for solving national and narrow group interests.
    This tool is commonly used in corrupt countries with ineffective development programs and weak state institutions to intimidate and gain legitimacy from the authorities.

    I'm not even talking about Russia here, because the image of an "external enemy", as they say, is the same in Africa. In Europe, these are terrorists, in China - separatists, on the African continent - the West, capitalists and religious movements.
    So the image of the enemy in the person of NATO or the State Department is also a very useful thing, they should not be scattered about. It is always fresh, it can lie on the shelf until the right moment. It is always easy for them to scare the layman hard to achieve some of their goals in the short or long term.

    Of course, NATO is not the Wehmahat. The Wehrmacht was aimed at a blitzkrieg, a war to a victorious end, the seizure of living space and the destruction of people of "non-Aryan" nationality. NATO is rather a police organization, i.e. when you misbehave, break the prescribed pattern of behavior, and at the same time weaken your loins to drive away annoying "pomish flies" and crush other parasites, then NATO will come to you. "Humanitarian operation" and nothing more. Something like this happened in Yugoslavia. The country began to fall apart due to internal strife and a difficult economic situation artificially created by a hostile environment. The bombing of Belgrade? Yes, but "It was pinpoint and forced bombing!" - NATO will tell you. Isn't it a police approach to solving the issue of disobedience and disobedience? The question is, who's next? And will this be the next one? Or this police station will remain within its current borders and will only plan forays into territories beyond its control.

    In vain we recalled the history of the past thousand years. The Czechs did exactly the same with the Mongols when they approached Prague. Now Russia is scaring the West with the Red Army and its military glory, this army is no longer there and those who could make boilers and pans are buried in the ground and are not even carried in photographs at parades. There is no one who has managed to rally the front and rear, find people and place them in the places they deserve. There are no factories that could produce a thousand units, some in a year, some in six months. No one, absolutely no one has allies. There is only, as according to Vysotsky - they scare with plates, then the dogs bark, then the ruins speak. If, nevertheless, something unfolds, there will be no winners, except for monkeys and ants. Again, there will be a transition from four-legged to two-legged, if there is still earth. No wonder the planet Earth complained to God - I got people started.

    I do not agree with the author. They want to fight and even as they want. Nobody canceled the Anaconda plan. The preparation went into electronic networks, financial networks (bitcoin), space weapons, modern biological weapons (covid), economic sanctions. Remember Iraq, the entire army elite was bribed and they surrendered the country. This can threaten us too. Let us also recall the nineties. The army and special services did not touch a finger to save the country, although it was in the oath to defend the homeland to the last drop of blood. The KGB analysts didn't understand what was going on? Will the oligarchs, billionaires give their last to build an Armata tank column, or a squadron of cruisers? The takeover of the country is already taking place. More than half of Sberbank is owned by Germany, except for Post Bank, all banks are of foreign origin, and almost all generating companies are owned by foreigners. The price per kilowatt is set by foreign shareholders. Pyaterochka, for example, belongs to Israel (he is now beating the Palestinians for our money). They want to fight and we must show that we are ready and willing to fight. soldier

      The Jews also noted themselves here. Cons are all from Judea. Once again, why do we need an army? Launching doves of peace or Satan and Poplar? Why corrupt the army with chatter about peacefulness. A fighter for something, to kill. Just like in any army in the world. There is an effective attack on what we call the Russkiy Mir. The former Warsaw Pact sided with the enemy - get it done. The world is heading for a third world war and we must win it.

    To build patriotism only on military topics is too one-sided. Too many people have appeared who say Sharikov's words - “I’ll get registered. And I will not go to war.” For some time now, Trud has ceased to be respected in our country. , to collectivism. If a person working, earns only from advertising, then we can safely say that he makes money out of thin air. Work for everyone. This is the main thing in our life.

    Those who follow the events in the world have probably paid attention to the attention with which Western politicians followed the events in Moscow. They not only examined our military equipment at the parade, but also listened attentively to the words of President Putin and Defense Minister Shoigu. They listened in the hope that Russia would nevertheless agree to descend from the level of the victors of Nazism to the level of the vanquished.

    Russia today is also not in a position to fight. I am talking about a large-scale war with a comparable adversary. Not because we have a weak army. The army is sometimes strong, one of the strongest, we cannot afford large losses of the population. I think demography is a huge problem for us. It is necessary to stimulate the growth of the Russian population. Tatars, Dagestan, Chechnya breed like rabbits, but it is the Russian people that form the state. Not in reproach to the others said. So the modern Russian army is needed not to fight and win, but to win without fighting. Hopefully in the future, the leadership will have enough wisdom and wisdom to adhere to this strategy.

    The total number of new citizens of the Russian Federation is 9 million 344 thousand 394 people

    So it turns out that without the newly acquired territories and migration, we would now be 12 million fewer in comparison with the 90s ..

    How you like to manipulate data. For some reason, your "technology" of calculation does not apply to other countries. USA - the country is home to more than 50 million immigrants, which is about 15% of the total population of the United States. If you dig deeper, the majority of visitors are there. And it never occurs to anyone (except you) to subtract the number of immigrants from the total number.

    The author is right only in terms of historical experience. This experience is very instructive. For a long time, the peoples of the European peninsula considered the Germans and Russians as their enemies. Stendhal, a former officer of the French army, who visited us with Bonaparte in 1812, wrote in a book about the history of painting in Italy (!?) that “You know that about 400 years ago the inhabitants of Germany and Russia were the freest, most courageous and the most cruel of all that history knows, they had the intention to move to France and Italy.
    ... The reason for the greatness of these northern peoples: they were free; but as soon as they seized France and Italy and divided the conquered among themselves, like herds of cattle, tyranny and slavery were established everywhere. All justice, all virtue and tranquility have left unhappy Europe. "
    Even the really great French writer had this long-standing Russophobia. But he soberly assessed the actions of the Europeans of that time: “Look what Napoleon did recently in Europe. But, treating with all justice what was great in the character of this man, take into account the squalor in which the sovereigns of the ⅩⅦI century were when he appeared on the scene. "
    Likewise, the rulers of Europe did not differ in greatness when Hitler came to power in Germany. Actually, even now, in our century, it is hardly possible to find a serious opponent among the rulers of Europe. And it's ridiculous to talk about the modern States that have occupied Europe.
    Therefore, under the current conditions, war can be unleashed either by accident, as was the case in August 1914, or by the stupidity of some "people's meadow" who decided to play the role of a great commander. Therefore, the iron rule remains in force: if you want peace, prepare for war.
