The American press published George W. Bush's "advice" to his successor in the presidency - Obama: "Watch Russia"

In 2009, the then US President George W. Bush handed over to his successor in the post of the owner of the White House, Barack Obama, documents that say a lot about the policy towards Russia and about the Russian-Ukrainian contradictions. Bush's declassified advice to Obama was published by The New York Times.

In total, thirty recommendations of the ex-president were published - each of them relates to a specific region, country or area of ​​​​the White House's foreign policy.



Bush Jr. advised Obama to be friends with India and not trust Iran or North Korea. He did not refer Pakistan to the friends of the United States, and also recommended not to get involved in wars in the Middle East.

Watch out for Russia: it covets the territory of its neighbor Ukraine. Russian attempts to challenge Ukraine's territorial integrity, especially in Crimea, which is 59 percent ethnic Russian and home to the Russian Navy's Black Sea Fleet, must be prevented

Bush wrote to Barack Obama.

It is doubtful that Bush Jr. studied the issues of the ethnic diversity of Crimea with an accuracy of a percentage...

The then American president noted that Russia would allegedly try to use Europe's dependence on energy resources to quarrel European countries with the United States. Now the Western press is trying to pass off these notes as a kind of forecast for the current situation.

But the low-intellectual Bush Jr. was hardly capable of serious analytics, and the recommendations contained in Russia and Crimea are already so obvious: one had to be an extremely narrow-minded person not to understand that sooner or later Russia would return for its own people, territories, cities that were created, built and developed by the Russian state.

    It's actually from the book of Revelation - "watch Israel". These are the last signs before the apocalypse.

    And we were worried, it turns out everything is under control ...
    Russia was contacted "to avoid any miscalculations that could lead to direct conflict between the two nuclear powers."
    The White House confirmed that Washington had warned Moscow about Biden's upcoming visit to Kyiv.

    Bush wrote to Barack Obama.
    Insert the words USA and NATO instead of the word Russia, and then it is less clear how the American model of conducting its policy is being created. Curious what Obama and Trump wrote to their successors without talking about Biden?!

    Yes, it is precisely in view of the fact that the entire world community remembered him as
    low intellectual
    then
    Doubtfully
    that's putting it mildly

    Bush Jr. confidently and repeatedly confused Australia and Austria. He knew nothing about international politics and nothing at all except ranches, cowboy hats and horses.

      But the badge "Honorary Tractor Driver" never received from anyone, unfortunately - guess who would give it to him and he would start collecting his "Brezhnev iconostasis" from it.
      In fact, he just looked into an atlas or a reference book - he is a historian and manager by education, and specialized atlases and reference books are produced for these specialties.

    It seems to me: on these tips, handed over in 2009, the ink has not yet dried up during the demonstration to the "press". More like a PR test by a potential candidate ahead of the 2024 presidential election

    Yes, Bush was a dumb, outback Texas kid with a tough dad. He couldn't leave anything. Clerks and analysts write for him, as well as for a bald can (an excellent clicker).

    This was written not by Bush Jr., but by his advisers. Bush was a pea jester, but for the minnow and the world, not the worst option. It’s good that in 2016 Hillary was given a ride, otherwise it would have flared up in 2018. There was a respite under Donald. Now the Democrats again, respite yok.
