American ex-lieutenant colonel gave Ukraine advice on joining NATO

34

Ukraine needs to adhere to neutrality, the country's accession to NATO could lead to an unnecessary and destructive war between the United States and Russia. This is the opinion of former US Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Davis in an article for the American portal 19FortyFive.


Russia will not tolerate the presence of NATO soldiers on the territory of Ukraine, Moscow has repeatedly warned that it is better not to cross some red lines, and Ukraine belongs to such a red line. This was also stated by Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Davis cited Georgia as an example, which was also promised to join NATO, and then there was a war on 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX and Washington was smart enough not to interfere in it, limiting itself only to threats against Russia.

According to the American military, the United States has only two priorities - the prosperity of the American nation and the avoidance of an unnecessary war, especially with an enemy with a nuclear weapons... If NATO accepts Ukraine into its ranks, then for Kiev it will mean great chances to resist Russia, but for the United States it will be the opposite. An unstable Ukraine will significantly reduce the security of the alliance countries, and both priorities of the United States will be under great threat.

The lieutenant colonel stressed that Ukraine is not an ally of the United States, is not a member of NATO, and Washington will have enough of pretending that this is so, as well as promising Kiev "membership in the alliance," realizing that this will not happen.

According to Davis, Kiev needs to remain neutral and stay away from both Moscow and NATO.

        It seems to me that the 404 country in any scenario has murky prospects - they will use and ... The stronger Russia is, the clearer the situation will look to its neighbors

      Until they began to take away their pensions for the "wrong point of view" ... They are fired for this all the time. Even if you are rich and successful, you can lose EVERYTHING in one moment. Banks will refuse loans, buyers will boycott, directors will stop filming, the team will break the contract ... This is freedom of speech in American style. You can say everything ... only you will be "cleaned" in all social networks and the media, deprived of your means of subsistence ... evening wassat

        Laying too smoothly. Most importantly, I did not mention that the FSH should not have poked their noses into this territory at all. Sooner or later, but you will have to solve the issue with striped ones. And then already there is nowhere to spit, everywhere their amber.

    They offered to share the animals - smart to the right, beautiful to the left. Well, at the very least, the animals were all divided, and the monkey still stands in the middle.
    - Hey, monkey, what are you?
    - But what should I, burst in half?

    ... Useful advice, only a reference to confrontation, hot, not so significant / obvious. There are more objective, real reasons.

    Just think about it. What a failure of common sense, as a phenomenon, will be a new world war, which began because of the phenomenal idiot Ukrainian. Just like in some movie, where something catastrophic happens because of some stupid, but impudent and greedy rat. Straight from the chaos theory described by Bradbury in Catching Thunder. Frighteningly, this outcome is still realistic.

    The war will not start because of "Ukraine", just someone wants to eat a lot further, and there is less and less food. Soon a big bad boom: (because of the greedy Wall Street freaks, the whole world will be shaking ...

    Smiled. Just a couple of weeks ago here on VO I read an article whose meaning is: -that no one will fight for Ukraine "
    Today: - "a destructive conflict between the US and the Russian Federation is possible"
    We are waiting for June, if the movement on the border begins, then they accept, if not, then they were scared, as Donskoy said, "strong" Russia

    I don’t believe this lieutenant colonel. Well, some general would have said that. This is an artifice of the CIA that supposedly Ukraine will never be taken to NATO in order to calm us down. In fact, it is already there, remember the NATO and American fleet, the base in Ochakov, flights of strategists over Ukraine. One fine moment, they will simply declare Ukraine to NATO and we are in the anus.

      And why Ukraine is there to announce something when it is already in that hole. What the pans will say and do. There are already all ... that, irradiated by the rays of the kegebe. The current territory called vukraine simply needs to be disinfected as a measure to combat covid.

      For the United States, Ukraine is not needed in NATO. Enough bilateral agreements. At the same time, the States have a lot of opportunities and no risk.

    Regarding the prosperity of the "American nation" (what kind of beast, such?) As one of the goals of the rulers of America, I would not believe anyone.
    After all, it is for the "prosperity of the nation and America": biolaboratories were created all over the world, including on the territory of the United States,
    the bogey of the coronabessia was developed and applied, which caused enormous economic - political - reputational - medical - human and other damage to the United States,
    the country's insane national debt was accumulating,
    the previous president scorned as a symbol of power in the United States,
    introduced "democratic and tolerant norms" in the government and in the army,
    elections were faked,
    sanctions and restrictions have been and are being introduced for many countries of the world,
    strategic industries and their taxation were transferred to China and the region,
    the construction of the wall in front of Mexico stopped,
    developed and put into service billions of samples of cutting the budget and time,
    etc. - etc.
    All this was done for the main goal of "the prosperity of the nation and America"!
    Logic is powerless here.
