The analytical program "However," with Mikhail Leontyev 08 February 2013

21


When taking up his position, the new US Secretary of State, John Kerry, gave a brief speech in which, among the appropriate polites, he said the following.
"At one time, Truman turned the head of an eagle from the paw in which the arrows of war are located, to the one in which the olive branch," said Kerry, referring to the emblem of the United States. conflict resolution".
From the film "The very Munchausen":

War is not poker. It can not be announced when he pleases.

Of course, for our historical the memory of Harry Truman with an olive branch looks somewhat doubtful. I remember that it was Truman, along with Churchill, who started the Cold War and almost turned it into a hot war. But, we must pay tribute, have not been transferred. And the Cold War is the peaceful resolution of conflicts.

Or at least their peaceful freezing. New Secretary of State Kerry and the future head of the Pentagon Heighel in America are considered almost pacifists. In fact, these two Vietnamese veterans are tough and qualified pragmatists whose mission is to return the meaning and adequacy of American foreign policy, in the context of the deepest economic crisis and the emergence of new centers of power in the world.

Harlan Ullman, an American strategic analyst who is extremely close to Kerry and Heigel, in an interview with the However, weekly Obama calls Obama's old foreign policy "formless and meaningless."

"As a result, the military campaigns in the Middle East are actually lost, the lauded reboot of relations with Russia ended in nothing." Ullman notes the failure of American policy in Afghanistan and Pakistan. "It should be understood that strikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities will not force Tehran to curtail its military program. This can be achieved only through direct intervention and occupation of Iran ... Only half a million army can accomplish this task. And who will contain this army? Iranian reef can become the cause of the shipwreck. "

By the way, the Iranian president has already quite positively assessed the new tone of the Americans and hinted at the possibility of direct negotiations. Again, the New York Times recalled that last year Obama hacked down a plan of large-scale assistance to the Syrian rebels, developed by Clintons and CIA head Petraeus. By the way, both left the administration.

According to Ullman, the State Department headed by Kerry will be able to smooth out the sharp edges in relations with Moscow: "As for the civil war in Syria, America, I think, will not support any of the parties, because we have not figured out who plays the role "bad guys", and who in the role of "good".

Not that word - did not understand! We brought up the "good guys", for example, in Libya and Syria, so that we now drench them in Mali and Algeria. Both are at their own expense. Once again: this is no longer cynicism, this is insanity. Actually, the tasks of Obama’s foreign policy are to return from insanity to cynicism. This, in fact, is in the language of diplomacy - "pragmatism."
From the film "The very Munchausen":

“We were all wrong in something here ... But some of them began to allow themselves to sew on pockets and arm sleeves — we cannot allow this.”

At the same time, one should not expect a sharp change in rhetoric from the new administration - rather the opposite. Their success is no longer guaranteed. And cynical diplomacy is least in need of open public declarations.

    It’s easy to fall into insanity, but it’s hard to get out. It’s like with a war - starting is easier than ending invincibly. So, the new administration has difficult years ahead.

      Insanity (like the Law) does not have retroactive effect, so updating the administration will not correct the pathology.

Details on the website www.usa-marazm.net :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) and so every time you change presidents, secretaries of state USA ... the most pumped-up insanity in my opinion was with George W. Bush. That senility pumped not just to the latest version but also ten years in advance)))

    Yes, I watched the news today! Rhetoric changed a little in Leontyev! smile Along the way, the guy took off his pink glasses! Of course, nothing can change for the better. For the worse, it’s easy! Why? Yes, because it’s much more difficult to talk with the cunning and beaten. And these two politicians are still sharks! I suspect that something was bad in the State Department against us. recourse

      There was never any sincerity in relations from this country, and now this is just another trick aimed at shifting the direction of the next blows to Russia, both political and economic, just another change in their forms and priorities.

        Without the 5th column, no "projects" of overseas political players are feasible. Because the players are like children by God, I listened to the Clintonsha, was touched by sincerity: "We won't let Russia gather allies around us" hehe is this, is this policy "thin"? But if our five-column fosterlings pick up, then such a statement will immediately gain weight ...

    Until recently I really liked Leontiev. but lately he's been trying to prove something that everything in the world is happening as he predicted. either he felt himself a new oracle, or became an "analyst". already even ordinary pin-do-ses realized that, having lost Europe, they would become a former jock, whose muscles were decrepit, no matter how he puffed up. and therefore this fucking keri, who was much worse than billikha, did not know how to think.
    I see this. I will not be offended by criticism. I am not an analyst, I am an average man

        good night (we have a night).
        but to me, on the contrary, when I was just starting (remember, Durenko was just eaten), I really liked him - he spoke clearly and to the point. then he took the bearded "grandfather", and he fell ill with zvezdyulina. When I get to this "grandfather", I always listen with pleasure. Or maybe my mind is not enough to understand everything that Leon prophesies? But I try to live in the real world and do not believe in - "Do not believe your eyes"

      you know, ZEUS of our era (judging by the year of publication), I'm a little bit in ah .... e. Serdyukovsky women's council under house arrest, and Kvachkov was not even given a word. His only mistake was that they did not take a ginger cockroach (then maybe it wouldn’t have happened). And in general, from some point of view, there were many traitors from the very "top", one devil, the people will chew and spit them out. in the process of chewing, vomiting and diarrhea may occur (and even blood (which is most often), but the grandchildren will live in a very good world. it was like this (socialism is our grandfathers, great-grandfathers, to whom the fathers provided), now it's our turn

          and aren’t they all secretly subordinate to the president? We have a state of officials, and in addition, the redhead said that Kvachkov is an extremist terrorist. I think they will sue. The only thing I regret is that in the 1999 a year I passed by the gdp (still the prime minister), and I had a killer thing in my hands (and I, as if I had once been given a white coat). And so that I would not regret my life? Maybe then would officials be transferred? maybe? or would it not help?

    When the money ran out, began to listen to smart, practical people in the usa? Thinking about your inner problems?
    And do not spend billions on killing people in different countries.
    Well, that is commendable. Only now I can hardly believe it, because they have a lot more crazy psychopaths - they just quieted down aside - they wait until the treasury is full.
    And there you can see, and you can fill your pocket by promoting your goods around the world by the overthrow of governments.

    Then some let the sarcasm go; Like Leontyev always tries to prove that he was right, and events are developing as he predicted! AND CORRECTLY DOES !!! I remember how many times such clever people laughed at him posing as a fool, and when time showed that he was right, then these clever men and the like again cast a sarcastic fog. Know how to lose gentlemen! And those who maliciously even without entering into a fight shut up, suck your beer on the sofa and do not blather.

      Beautiful words with feminine logic, no more. As soon as a real man appears on your ideal planet who starts earning money to feed his family, the words "politics" and "crap" will immediately appear, but these are not synonyms as you, dear Elena, presented them. The second word will appear as a product of the processing of the man's earned money. smile

    We lost the Cold War, the USSR did not, the mentality of the Russians has changed, we have become more tolerant, we look at things more widely, in short We are OTHER!
    But the amers have not changed anything! And they perceive us as before, an evil empire! (Although they themselves remained to her). To change something in their worldview, they need defeat, they need to be humiliated and spat upon! Then arrogance will be lifted by hand and the chakras will be cleansed ...
    But this will be another America, with an adequate elite instead of another people who will think !. And such America will be respected, and not considered a world scarecrow!

      I don’t agree with you only that the Cold War is lost, it’s still going on and the victory will be ours. Remember 1941, we also lost a lot of people and lands, but they returned everything! And they hoisted the flag.

    Ullman states the failure of American policy in Afghanistan and Pakistan. “It should be understood that strikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities will not force Tehran to curtail its military program. This can only be achieved through direct intervention and occupation of Iran ... Only a half-million army can accomplish this task.
    Probably a real chance for the Israeli army to eliminate the threat to its state and become a single hegemon in the Middle East.
    After the disgraced leaders of the Middle East states show their vassal allegiance to the United States, it will be difficult to do.
