For fifteen years, or maybe even twenty, after some, even seemingly minor incidents with aircraft, skirmishes between Russia and NATO, the topic of an open conflict between Moscow and Brussels is being accelerated in the press and especially in social networks. A lot of materials appear about the power of the Armed Forces of both sides, about the economic strength of the Russian Federation and the EU, and so on.
Today, after the recent attack on the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, this topic is again in trend. “Indisputable evidence of the preparation of an attack on Russia” has already appeared. Like concentrating NATO units in Poland or stationing a US light airborne division in Romania.
I was surprised to read that the 101st Airborne Division is the elite of the US Airborne Forces. Strange, but when she was an airborne assault, there was somehow no talk of her elitism. The 101st Airborne Division is truly the most combat-ready unit of the US Army in Europe. 15 thousand personnel (almost 100% deployment).
But, like all airborne forces, including Russian ones, the division is designed to quickly capture a bridgehead and hold it until the main forces approach. At the same time, in this connection there really are units that are trained according to the same methodology as the units of the MTR. It's the divisions. But the maximum they can do is to temporarily destabilize the situation in our rear, and then they will be eliminated.
So, with the next question, we completely destroy the theory that the Americans attacked our formations in Ukraine. Even with the use of the division and the success of the operation, the question arises of who are these very “main forces”? Ukrainians, Poles, Romanians?.. Who? The very use of the US Airborne Forces suggests that the Pentagon is well aware of the "power" of the armies of its allies. The classic version of the elephant and Pug.
Global confrontation, but not war
Even before the start of the NWO, it was clear that the world security system had collapsed. I wrote about the fact that there are practically no agreements between Moscow and Washington, except for those that expire in 3-4 years, that limit offensive weapons. It was clear that the time was coming for another arms race. Well, the beginning of the NWO actually determined the place where the events would take place.
Do you remember how SVO started? From the first days, arms supplies to Kyiv began, an attack on the Russian economy. Then to everything Russian: from culture and sports to private business and funds invested by the state in Western banks. And at the same time, the possibility of a NATO attack on Russia began to be discussed in political circles.
It was clear that the West was probing Moscow's reaction to Kyiv's almost open support. It must be admitted that we did not calculate the very “red line” that NATO would go to. So the next step followed. I mean the appearance of mercenaries and PMCs in the ranks of the Ukrainian army. It became clear that it was impossible to finish the NWO with limited forces and means.
Around the same time, our response to Western PMCs also appeared. Reports about Russian PMCs began to appear in various media. At the beginning, these were messages from Syria, Africa, and then messages appeared from the Donbass. Remember the final shots from one of the first films about Donbass? When the Ukrainian unit is destroyed by no one knows who? The famous "we'll help you a little here"?
Well, partial mobilization. Not the panic saturation of the front with untrained "partisans", as it was and is in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but training, combat coordination and work in specific, as close as possible to combat conditions. Simply put, the quality of the personnel of the Ukrainian and allied armies today is clearly different. Both the army replenishment and the volunteers.
Thus, President Putin openly made it clear to the West and, above all, to Washington, that Russia is not going to concede.
The same thing happened with another "trump card", which they tried to play in Brussels. I mean nuclear weapon. A couple of months ago, the Western media began to write actively about tactical nuclear weapons. This naturally attracted the attention of many analysts. There was not a penny - and suddenly altyn. No one was interested in the topic for many years - and suddenly such interest.
It was curious how the opinion of the townsfolk, including, unfortunately, ours, about the nuclear conflict is changing. The absurd idea that after the use of tactical nuclear weapons the answer will follow in the same format "has seized the masses." Although even without special knowledge, it is clear that after the use of nuclear weapons, no one will comply with any restrictions. The answer will be "to the fullest" - strategic weapons of nuclear weapons.
Russia conducted its exercises on time and clearly showed how it would look in reality. "Thunder" struck, and a peasant there, in the West, crossed himself. And immediately, as if on cue, talk about tactical nuclear weapons stopped. Today, this topic is not even mentioned in social networks, not to mention the media. The myth about the use of tactical nuclear weapons against a country that owns strategic nuclear weapons has collapsed.
Well, the last puncture of the West is the economy. All these sanctions, bans, confiscations and other things that were supposed to destroy the Russian economy really led to difficulties. In all countries. But, if you look closely, you get a strange picture. The biggest challenges are in Europe. In the United States, China and Russia, the economy has survived and is even profitable.
Europe is very afraid of war with Russia. Historical memory, as it turned out, exists. To fight and shed other people's blood - yes, but Europeans do not agree to risk their own well-being, their own lives. Yes, and there is nothing for them to fight now. There is no global superiority in weapons and technology. Most of what could fight has already been transferred to Kyiv. And to go “to the bayonet” on the Russians is a thin gut.
I think that today the heads of European politicians are busy thinking about how to get out of the current situation with the least losses. How to preserve at least the remnants of European prosperity ...
It's not worth relaxing
But we should not think that the danger of global war has disappeared. Yes, NATO as a whole is against war, but no one has canceled the desire of some countries to start this mess. Moreover, as the history of mankind shows, the European war is a huge field for obtaining superprofits by third countries, such as the United States or Britain.
I think it is not worth talking about the advantages that Washington receives in the created situation and in a possible confrontation between Europe and Russia. So much has been written about this that those who are interested in this issue can already explain almost everything on their own. And the fact that there are states in Europe that are ready to unleash a war for the sake of the interests of the United States is clear to everyone.
So, let's remember the ZNPP. Why is Kyiv so stubbornly drowning its own special forces in the reservoir? After all, attempts have already been made to capture the station. The answer is quite simple and has long been voiced by the clown and his minions. The Russians want to blow up the nuclear power plant so that a nuclear cloud will cover Eastern Europe and thus deprive NATO of the opportunity to help Ukraine.
That is, an explosion at the ZNPP is an attack on NATO and, according to that very notorious 5th article of the treaty, the alliance will be obliged to stand up for its members. Sneaky enough, but in the style of Kyiv plan. Any way to translate the conflict into a European format... But it didn't work out. And now it won't work. There was too much noise around.
But the Americans also have no less vile allies who can put a bunch of crap under our doors. And already a couple of times they tried, or rather, they did it. I mean the sabotage on the SP branches and the drone attack on Sevastopol. Does anyone doubt that these were sabotage? I think no. Does anyone doubt that citizens of other countries participated in the preparation and conduct of these sabotage?
Let's start with sabotage on gas pipelines. According to the statements of our president and the Defense Ministry, and such statements are made only in the presence of reinforced concrete evidence, several countries could have participated in the sabotage. USA, Britain and Poland... The rest either simply did not know about the preparation, or their fleet was used in the dark.
Now an attempt to strike at the fleet in the Sevastopol. It is clear that after an unsuccessful attempt by those who tried to carry it out. No. Kyiv says that they did not participate, other countries do "make big eyes." But there is objective data. There are fragments of drones and even whole drones that are raised from the bottom. And now it has become clear that the inspirers, organizers and developers of plans for these operations are not Ukrainians at all...
Two countries that today pose a danger not so much to us as to Europe, Britain and Poland did not stop at the first sabotage. And they won't stop. According to Western media reports, Russia has stepped up its submarine fleet and ... is carrying out sabotage on communication cables near Britain. Several accidents have been reported on such cables.
The picture is quite interesting. For some reason, our boats operate near the islands, in British waters. And accidents look kind of stupid. A maximum of a week to eliminate the consequences. I think the Russian submarine fleet has the ability to destroy cables in places where repairs would be difficult. According to the same scheme as they undermined the joint venture.
At first glance, cable sabotage does not look as threatening as gas pipeline sabotage. But in reality, it can be quite serious. The lack of communication deprives the West of the possibility of transferring funds that are used to pay for military orders and more. So, in one case, after an accident on a canal linking Britain and Norway, the British were unable to pay for gas supplies.
I think that we should expect a repetition of sabotage in the future. Not so much in order to somehow seriously harm us, but to test our nervous system. According to the plan of Western specialists, we must “flare up” and respond somewhere, that is, strike at the fleet or territories of the NATO state. And there you can raise a terrible howl about the aggressiveness of Moscow and demand the fulfillment of the requirements of the 5th article of the treaty.
Be prepared, but don't freak out
The most common question people ask is pretty simple. So will there be a war with NATO? Will Western politicians stop in Ukraine or will the fighting be transferred to neighboring countries? The question is not idle. There is a union treaty, there is a country that trusts us, and on whose borders NATO troops are concentrated.
No matter what we say about our own slovenliness and disregard for the NVO, we understand that if the war crosses the borders of Ukraine, that very second part of the well-known saying about our slowness in harnessing horses will come. Again, you have to "drive fast."
I very often hear the idiotic (excuse me for such an assessment) phrase - the West will wage war to the last Ukrainian. Have we forgotten how to think? What Ukrainian? Are our soldiers dying? I think that it is more correct to speak not to the last Ukrainian, but to the last Slav! We are also not needed by the West, just as Ukrainians are not needed.
History, as I already wrote, is the science of the future. Consider how a small people of the Anglo-Saxons conquered territories with a population hundreds of times greater than their own. Ukraine, or rather, the population of this country, today, without realizing it, is fighting for the Anglo-Saxons and instead of the Anglo-Saxons.
We can't understand simple things. Remember the reports that we are captured for the second, and sometimes for the third time? Do you remember the tone of the messages? These are the bastards in power in Kyiv. Former prisoners are again mobilized. Well, yes. Only they don’t mobilize, but they themselves volunteer. Sami. Allegedly to protect their homeland. In the same way as prisoners released from Ukrainian captivity return to duty.
Yesterday I watched a video from Ukrainian sources, in which a Ukrainian tank crushes our wounded soldiers in the trenches on a tip from UAV operators. The video is not closed, it can be found in social networks. What's this? Is it the criminal authorities in Kyiv that are forcing tankers to wrap soldiers' guts on their tracks? Are these fascists from Azov? No, these are ordinary soldiers and sergeants.
But insight comes. It's hard, but it comes. The example of Zaporozhye and Kherson regions proves this. For a long, very long time we will have to catch saboteurs, accomplices and other scum. But the population is already becoming truly Russians. And without the support of the population, these scumbags will not last long.
And then the Anglo-Saxons will have a choice. Fight on your own or calm down and live peacefully. Maybe not always, but for some long period. There is an understanding of this in England itself. That is why they are so actively provoking Russia to some kind of attack. To replace unreliable Ukrainians with Poles and other "friends" who defected to allies from the former Soviet bloc.
We need to take into account the "desires of the enemy" and not succumb to provocations. Respond adequately to provocations, but without hysteria. How is it happening today. This is the guarantee that the war will not spread to other countries. Again, Europe is afraid of war. Europe does not want to fight. But she is stubbornly pushed to do so.
The US and Britain also have no desire to compete with the Russian army. All repeats. Nobody wants war, and war is coming. Our task is not to give a reason for it to start. To answer "it hurts, but gently," as Lelik said in Gaidai's famous comedy.
