It is hard to fight. A soldier on the battlefield needs a very powerful incentive to put his life in danger. The ability to withstand losses, the willingness to endure the stress of battle, while maintaining the will to fight in the most unfavorable situation, is called the moral elasticity of troops. You can equip the army with the most modern and expensive weapons, provide all the necessary supplies, pay soldiers a large salary, and scatter the officers with awards. But this army will be defeated by barefoot partisans armed with old-time rifles and peasant forks, if the minds of the soldiers do not have confidence in the need to fight if they do not understand the goals of the war in which they participate. The reluctance to fight leads to the fact that the soldier in any situation trying to evade battle, behaves passively. Conversely, their opponent, armed with a powerful idea, mobilizing his entire consciousness to fight, is actively seeking opportunities to fight, compensating for the weakness of his weapon with well-thought tactics, courage or even fanaticism.
The practice of wars shows that one of the most powerful mobilizing factors is the mass historical consciousness. For example, the Poles did not have any apparent reasons for an uprising against Russia, either in 1830 or 1863, because they not only did not suffer any discrimination, but even had great advantages over other residents of the Russian Empire. The explanation of this phenomenon should be sought in the specifics of Polish self-consciousness, one of the features of which was the consciousness of the messianic historical role of the Polish people, the bearer of the true values of Western civilization. The Poles perceived themselves as knights of the West, opposing the eternal barbaric threat from the East. Of course, the participants of the gentry uprisings were not completely stupid idealists, they were primarily interested in the land and slaves, but not a single uprising is possible without a powerful ideological base. Polish historiography, the Polish education system, which was preserved and even developed in the era of Russian rule, formed this very ideological basis. Thanks to her in the XX century. Poland was able to revive, gathering around its core - the provinces of the Kingdom of Poland as part of Russia - the heavily Germanized lands of Malopolska, Silesia and Pomerania, as well as Galicia, Volyn, Podolia, Polesye.
Without knowing the history of the state against which you are at war, it is impossible to work out an effective strategy. I remember well what pessimistic forecasts were given by our military "experts" regarding the American intervention in Iraq in 2003. The general tone of their statements was that the Yankees plunge into second Vietnam - a protracted, bloody and unpopular public campaign. I was sure that we would witness a blitzkrieg, and the losses of the Americans would be purely symbolic. The fact is that the military "experts" estimated the military potential of Iraq by counting the number of guns and combat aircraft on both sides of the front. If the Iraqi army is hypothetically capable of inflicting sensitive casualties on the interventionists, this, in their opinion, would make it impossible for the United States, whose army is very sensitive to casualties, to quickly complete the rout of Saddam. Delaying the campaign would have led to an even greater drop in the morale of the troops, to even greater losses, to massive anti-war demonstrations in America, an increase in Islamic solidarity with the Arabs, etc.
All this will be aggravated by the growth of world oil prices - economic “experts” sang along with the military “experts”, and therefore the war for the USA will lose any rational meaning. A wave of anti-Americanism will sweep around the world, Washington will suffer a political fiasco - the “experts” politicians said. All these heralds were awkwardly silent after a few days after the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. America won one of its most spectacular victories. Surprisingly, even oil prices did not jump during the hot phase of the operation.
Why I did not believe the numerous "experts"? Because I saw how well the Americans prepared for this war. Not only technically, but morally and ideologically. Not only the army was prepared for the war, but the entire people of America. 11 September 2001 in New York was committed the most spectacular mass murder in the history of mankind. If you think that the WTC towers were attacked by suicide bombers hijacking two passenger planes, then I advise you to turn to the physics textbook for 6 — 7 high school class and try to answer at least these two questions:
- could the burning aviation fuel to melt the steel cables holding the tower structure, if the steel melts at 1500 ° C, and the burning temperature of kerosene is about 800 ° C?
- could giant twin towers collapse under their own weight in 10 – 15 seconds, that is, at the speed of free fall?
There are dozens of similar questions, and together they leave no stone unturned in the official version of the American government about the villainous terrorist act committed by anonymous Arabic kamikazes without any purpose or motive. In fact, we are dealing with an operation of the special services, performed according to a scheme that has long since become classic. Americans in general, almost all of their wars began with an attack on themselves. Why did they kill 11 of September three thousand good Americans? No matter how paradoxical it may seem, for reasons of humanity. The American elite came to the firm conviction that it was in the interests of the United States (or in its own interests, that in this case the same thing) to begin a series of local wars in the Third World. If you fight, then seriously. A poorly prepared war will indeed turn into a second Vietnam. It is necessary to make the society support the war overseas, send soldiers to it with enthusiasm, and they, in turn, must be firmly convinced that they protect the peaceful sleep of their fellow citizens in the Iraqi deserts or the Afghan mountains.
Exactly for this and was organized a small bloody play in Manhattan. So that, as they say, "noble rage boiled like a wave ..." and to "scribble a machine gunner for a blue handkerchief ...". And humanity here is this. Begin America, at the behest of your government, the 10 war of September 2001, it would be very difficult to achieve public support for it. There would be few people willing to fight, young people would have to be dragged to the army in the army. The soldiers, of course, would have gone to war on orders, but without any enthusiasm. In the end, indeed, one more Vietnam would have turned out - 57 thousands of corpses, tens of thousands of cripples, hundreds of thousands of mentally injured veterans who did not understand why they burned Vietnamese villages with napalm. And so the murder of three thousand people allowed to save the lives of tens of thousands. True, the high morale of the American warriors turned out to be that without any doubt, their precision bombs tore up an estimated one million Iraqi civilians. But this is the other side of the American government’s humanity towards its own citizens. The Americans have learned to fight with virtually no casualties on their part, while the enemy’s losses do not bother them at all.
What followed 11 on September 2001 was a massive treatment of the consciousness of the American man in the street. Radio, television, newspapers, the Internet, cinema, comics - all means of influencing the mind were used to convince the inhabitants of the most "free" country in the world that henceforth everyone and everyone is threatened by the worst enemy in the entire history of the United States - international terrorism. For the sake of defeating him, no sacrifice will be great. After a year and a half of total brainwashing, every US Marine was firmly convinced that by killing Afghan and Iraqi children, he was doing a good thing, saving his own children. After all, these are not just Afghan children, but future terrorists who are born and live with the sole purpose of killing as many freedom-loving Americans as possible.
The great mystification of 11 September 2001 has become in some way a new word in the conduct of military propaganda operations. For the first time, propaganda was not built on a tendentious interpretation of a real historical event, but on fabrication of the historical event itself. The fragility of the past has passed into a new quality, the present has become unsteady. This was possible because the average American has no historical consciousness at all, it has been largely sterilized in recent decades. This makes the human psyche unprotected against manipulative effects. American philistine with the help of media can be convinced of anything, instill anything.
But ideologically and psychologically preparing one’s own soldiers for a war and ensuring a benevolent attitude to world opinion war is only half the battle. We must also demoralize the enemy soldiers. The Yankees in Iraq have coped with this task. True, the Americans had no opportunity to influence the entire Iraqi army, but limited themselves to inclining the top of Saddam’s army to betrayal. After the Iraqis successfully repulsed the interventionists' first attack on Baghdad, their army simply disappeared, literally dissolved - therefore there was no official surrender, prisoner of war camps, etc. The Americans occupied Baghdad without any resistance and put the puppet regime in power. And their previous failure was apparently explained by the fact that not all Iraqi units received an order to stop the resistance, or some commanders refused to carry it out. How exactly the Americans managed to persuade the Iraqi generals to betrayal is unknown, but the fact of betrayal is obvious.
The army of Iraq ceased to exist, but the Iraqi people remained. Why did he not stand up to fight the invaders? So the fact of the matter is that no Iraqi people in nature have ever existed! This is clear to anyone who is familiar with the history of Iraq. In Vietnam, the Americans broke their teeth because they had to deal with the Vietnamese people, a community that was culturally and politically united. And in Iraq there has never been a single ethnic, cultural, religious and political community. Iraq from the very beginning was an artificial state formation. While dividing the Ottoman Empire, which had ceased to exist as a result of the First World War, the British had drawn borders at their discretion, creating a statehood that had never existed before, which included Shiite, Sunni, and Kurdish tribes.
The Kurds were not lucky at all - they were divided by several state borders at once, living in Turkey, Iraq and Iran. Why did London, who preached the principle of self-determination of peoples in words, did not create a separate Kurdish state? It is worth remembering the well-known principle - divide et impera - divide and conquer. The more unviable the new Middle Eastern states are, the more effectively they can be robbed. Iraq turned from the Ottoman province into a British colony, and after formal independence in 1932, it remained ... still the same colony. Sometimes the people create a state, and sometimes the state gives birth to the people. In the USSR, for example, for several decades a unique cultural and political community has developed - the Soviet people. The political project of Saddam Hussein was aimed at creating from the assorted Arab and Turkic tribes the Iraqi people, a politically cohesive nation. But this did not have enough time or skill.
One way or another, but the American military understood perfectly well that by neutralizing the Iraqi army, they would destroy the state, and without the state framework, the 26, the Iraqi’s million people, would fall apart into warring tribes. Therefore, the second Vietnam does not threaten them. So it happened. Today, Iraq has actually broken up into three parts - the Sunni and Shiite regions and Kurdistan. Kurdistan also split into two autonomous regions - the Kurdistan Democratic Party controls most of the provinces of Erbil and Dahuk; The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan holds Sulaimania under its rule.
Someone might argue that, they say, the brave Iraqi rebels are still fighting the occupiers. It is necessary to watch less TV! These rebels are acting in the interests of the United States. They need a reason for their military presence in the region, and it is there. The reason is universal - it is called "instability." Who will explain why these patriotic Fedayins, instead of attacking US patrols, blow up markets and mosques? At first they blew up the Shiite mosque, the Sunnis were declared guilty. Then, of course, the bomb exploded in the Sunni prayer house. And now the representatives of the two religious communities revenge each other with enthusiasm, and statesmen in Washington are anxiously wrinkling their foreheads and saying that stability in the region is under threat.
In order for Europe to realize that you don’t mind Uncle Sam, there are a couple of terrorist attacks in the oil fields, causing oil prices to jump. Sometimes NATO “peacekeepers” themselves have to do the dirty work for the terrorists. Recently, the world's media squeezed out about the scandal that took place in Iraq. Local policemen grabbed two terrorists who were driving down the street in a car and shot at passersby. In actual fact, these Mujahideen turned out to be disguised as British special forces. The scandal was hushed up, the special forces terrorists were released from prison, the media instantly shut up and began with the usual pathos to denounce the insidious world terrorism that threatens the whole free world and democracy. In general, everything goes according to the established scheme - the military, politicians and the mass media are doing a common thing. And therefore peace in the Middle East will never come. At least until the oil runs out.
Is the West preparing for war with Russia? Weird question. He leads her. Only this is not the war that we sometimes see in television reports from Palestine or Afghanistan. The war is fought not on the physical, but on the spiritual and intellectual destruction of the Russians. The West does not need the Russian people as a carrier of political will or, worse, a civilizational idea. In place of the Russian Empire - the Soviet Union - the Russian Federation should appear warring with each other tribes of savages - as in Iraq or Afghanistan. Russian army should not be. Russian culture should become a museum property. So far, our opponents are doing well. The Soviet Union is shattered into 15 warring Bantustan. In the Russian Federation itself, a regime loyal to the West, completely dependent on world prices for oil and metals, has been put in power.
Another twenty years - and the army in the country will cease to exist. She will not even have to be trashed, as Hitler did in 41. Just by the time the Soviet weapons are completely obsolete. The Russian military-industrial complex is no longer able to create models of weapons of the Russian Federation (tele-propaganda is not to be taken seriously). Moreover, he cannot even produce serially developed combat systems by Soviet designers - production facilities and skilled personnel have been lost.
20 years is a second by historical standards. Russia left to live one second. What happens in a couple of decades? NATO intervention? Too much honor! No one will come to conquer us. Degraded Russians will destroy each other themselves. We are waiting for the same end as Yugoslavia, painfully dying out in an endless series of ethnic conflicts and political crises. The Soviet people ceased to exist. It remains to crush the remaining piece - an amorphous formation called "Russians" - and the matter is done. But just in case, the current owners of the world are preparing a force option for the “final solution of the Russian question.”
Who thinks we digress from the topic? After all, it was about history. Yes, we are talking about it. History is a weapon. The Russian state can be hypothetically revived even in the most unfavorable conditions, if the people, the bearer of the national idea and political will, remain. But national ideology and political will are based on historical consciousness. A nation is primarily a historical community, and only secondarily, linguistic, cultural, social, etc. Therefore, now there is a war to destroy the Russian people, as a single HISTORICAL COMMUNITY. "Reformatting" of the people's historical memory leads to its degradation. Who is fighting against Russia? Let's see.
History falsification takes place only by political order and can only be carried out by a party with great resources. In the overwhelming majority of cases, only the state had the resources and the political need to rewrite the past. Imagine that in the kingdom there is a civil war for the throne between two clans. And now the ruling dynasty was overthrown, the ax was made to the king, and a more successful opponent sat on the throne. Can he and his descendants feel confident about him? No, power can be achieved with the help of a sword, but it is impossible to keep it alone by force alone. Political opponents can be killed or intimidated. Proponents distribute the land of the slaughtered enemies and thereby enlist their loyalty. But…
The power of the sovereign is consecrated by the church. The church in antiquity played the same role that today the education system, the media, literature and cinema combined. And if the church (more precisely, the church elite) does not like the new king for some reason, he will not live long. The church can turn the anger of the subjects against the monarch and overthrow the king, but the king cannot abolish the church. Only the church makes the king's authority legitimate, and if the monarch shares power and wealth with the church, he can count on her support. The Church in the Middle Ages had, if I may say so, a monopoly on history. Destroy hundreds of annals, replace them with new models - and after a few decades, there will be no memory of the overthrown dynasty, it will turn into a myth, the subject of oral folk art about alien barbarians who seized power in the country until the brave king (the founder of the ruling dynasty) expelled they were not saved by the people from ruin and destruction. To eradicate any memory of the vanquished, slander them, discredit them in order to eliminate any danger on their part — this is the very obvious desire of every usurper.
It's one thing when two sons of the deceased king are fighting for power. The people, by and large, no difference, will collect taxes Heinrich or Friedrich, the main thing is that corvee and taxes did not grow. But if an alien people conquers your land and begins to impose its customs, laws, religion - this is a completely different one. The conqueror should prepare for a long, often centuries-old bloody struggle. For every conqueror, the primary task was to establish his church hegemony over the vanquished, and only then one could try to erase all memory that the conquered people once had their own statehood, their kings and glorious warriors. Conquest should not be presented as an act of enslavement, but as bringing civilization and true faith to the land of slaves, savages and atheists. The destruction of the conquered historical memory of the people was a pledge of his humility. Sometimes these manipulations succeeded, sometimes not.
Where did the Croats come from in the Balkans? The Germans routed part of the conquered Serbs and made them their servants. The Turks drew part of the Serbs to Islam and also received submissive serfs. Take away the memory of the past from the people, and they will lose the will to resist the tyrant or the conqueror. But since not all the Serbs submitted to the spiritual dictates of the conquerors, preserved the memory of their past and the original religion, even after centuries the Serbian state was able to revive. And how many states and peoples have sunk into oblivion? When the Spaniards arrived in South America, they discovered there, though they were primitive from their point of view, but still states. And then they began fanatically to destroy the local culture, architecture, crafts, science, writing and religion - all that was the source of people's knowledge about their past. Only after that they managed to turn the surviving Aboriginal into slaves.
Now the principles of the influence of historians on the consciousness of people have not fundamentally changed. Only technology has become different. The fact is that it is impossible to completely erase from the memory of people the events of the past, because it is impossible to destroy all books, films, newspapers, museums, monuments of architecture, works of art and block all objectionable pages on the Internet. Therefore, there are three main methods of manipulation:
- sterilization of historical memory;
- speculative interpretation of the facts, distorting the essence of the phenomenon;
- composing virtual events inscribed in the context of real facts.
Sterilization of memory is a long process, but in a strategic sense, very effective. It consists in the breeding of such a breed of people who do not need a story at all. Western consumer society is a herd of slowly but steadily dull primates. The degradation of the mind is most pronounced in the United States. The average American man in the street is unlikely to tell you how many continents are on the globe, and he only sees a book if it is shown on TV. Actually, many Americans do not know how to read. Letters know that they can be put in words (they did learn in the school after all), but they don’t have reading skills at all or it will atrophy as unnecessary. This phenomenon is called secondary or functional illiteracy.
But the fact that Americans stop reading and that is why their mental abilities are degrading are only half the problem. For an undeveloped intellect, the addiction to television is completely fatal. The process of thinking is the generation by the mind of images and concepts. When reading, a person draws in his imagination a picture of what the text narrates and perceives not an alphabetic code, but an image. The TV loads into the consciousness of a person already ready audiovisual images, and therefore the brain of a tele-dependent person is irreversibly destroyed, and already organically. Following functional illiteracy, a functional speech disorder sets in, a loss of verbal communication skills. Especially brightly functional speech disorder manifests itself in children, and often leads to mental disorders.
The process of mental degradation is completely natural - the locomotor system atrophies in a motionless person, the visually impaired person is lost in the pitch darkness, and those who do not use the brain degrade the central nervous system. But such a primate becomes supernousable. Any, the most monstrous delusion can inspire him through the TV, and it will be perceived uncritically as an absolutely infallible truth, not as imposed, but own opinion.
Such a humanoid animal has a completely different perception of time than that of a normal person. For him, time is cyclical - work, lunch, work, entertainment, sleep. And so from day to day until the cessation of the physical existence of the organism. A non-reading tele-dependent man in the street has no historical consciousness as such, that is, a perception of the past and the future, as a reality. He does not perceive himself as a part of a people that once appeared and which, while developing, will exist after his death. The future, like the past, is for him a complete abstraction, not having the slightest significance for his current existence, which he alone perceives as reality. Is such a creature able to manifest what is called historical or political will? No, his biological existence is subject to the most elementary instincts, of which the consumption instinct is predominant. The spiritual component of being does not belong to him, because it is a product loaded by necessity into his consciousness from outside, outside of his will.
Of course, a society consisting of a caste of dedicated manipulative shamans and a mass of zombies with absolutely sterile consciousness have not yet been able to get; it will probably take several decades or even centuries of domination of television culture. Even in America, the proportion of functionally illiterate citizens is, according to various estimates, from 15 to 30% of the population. But the dynamics are impressive. The Soviet Union was rightfully considered the most reading country in the world. Today, Novye Izvestia states: “According to the results of a recent sociological survey conducted by the Yuri Levada Center, Russia does not read books at all 47% of the adult population (just three years ago, the figure was 10 percent lower) ... According to scientists and librarians, today we can safely attribute to percent 90 adult Russians to the chronically non-reading. ”
Since, although it is neutered, most of the members of the consumer society have an idea of history, sometimes historians need to quickly change them in the right direction, for which the second manipulative device is often used - a speculative interpretation of well-known facts. Here is a vivid example. Recently, Japanese Defense Minister Fumio Kume said that the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had prevented the USSR from seizing the island of Hokkaido. The situation is particularly piquant given that Kyuma himself is a native of Nagasaki. However, the minister claims that atomic bombing was “the inevitable end of the Second World War,” and therefore he does not hurt the Americans.
To make the Japanese forget about the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is impossible. But with some effort they can be convinced that this massacre of civilians was carried out for their own good. Here is the Minister of War Kyum and issued a pearl that if the Americans had not killed several hundred thousand Japanese, the Russians would have occupied Hokkaido. Of course, these bloodthirsty barbarians would clean the entire population of the island.
You can certainly assume that Kyuma blurted out without thinking. Maybe. But others thought for him, and he only performed someone's will. Whose, guess is easy. The island of Hokkaido, like the other Japanese islands, was occupied not by Russians, but by Americans. Still in Japan are the garrisons of the US occupation forces. And the Japanese army is not national armed forces, but something like the Waffen-SS legions formed by Germany during the Second World War from representatives of the conquered peoples. They wore national uniforms, spoke their native language, priests, pastors and mullahs had homegrown, but the Ukrainian, Estonian, Flemish and other SS men took the oath personally to the Fuhrer of the German people Adolf Hitler and they fought not for Ukraine, Estonia and Flanders, but for Great Germany wherever the Fuhrer sends them.
Why the Nazis needed Estonian and Ukrainian SS men, it is known that they would help them defeat the Russians. Why, then, do Americans create an analogue of the Japanese waffen-SS? Yes, for the same purpose! Maybe Washington is preparing the Japanese as cannon fodder for the war, for example, with China, which has fantastically increased recently? No, the Japanese are preparing for war with the Russians. After all, the Germans fought with the British, Americans, French, and even towards the end of the war a little with the Italians. But SS non-volunteers from among non-Germans used exclusively on the Eastern Front. Ideological treatment was carried out in the appropriate spirit. They say that an enlightened Europe must stand under the banner of great Germany and put an end to the eternal threat from the East, which had previously emanated from the Mongol hordes, and at the present moment from the Jewish-Bolshevik hordes. And there were hundreds of thousands of Europeans under the banner. And they went on a crusade. And the crosses went to everyone who is iron from the Fuehrer, to whom, forgive, wooden from the Russian soldier.
Since Japan is an occupied country, Japanese historians work in the interests of the invaders, preparing the nation for war with the Russians. From a very young age, Japanese kids are hammered by the fact that the damned Russians occupied the “northern territories” - the four islands of the Kuril chain. And without these small islands, the Japanese nation simply cannot live. The return of the “northern territories” is not just a populist political slogan, it is a Japanese national idea, and their ONLY national idea. The inhabitants of the Land of the Rising Sun are not very religious, and they profess various cults. Therefore, religion cannot serve as a factor uniting the nation, as, for example, this takes place in mixed and multi-lingual Pakistan. There is also no political totalitarian idea capable of rallying all the people, nor is it foreseen. Formally, Japan remains a monarchy, but the emperor has long been turned into a decorative accessory and can not become a national leader. Socially Japanese society remains traditionally heterogeneous, although we do not observe open social antagonism in it.
And only when it comes to the northern territories, the Japanese of all sexes, ages, religions, and political views from the homeless to the richest tycoon show unanimity - return! In Japan, there is a Communist Party - one of the largest (410 thousands of members) and the richest Communist Parties in the world. But even during the Cold War, the Japanese communists were not friendly with the damned Russian invaders, who took away the most expensive of Japan - the four rocky northern islands. Formally, KIA stands for the withdrawal of the American occupation forces from the territory of Japan, but in fact it is pursuing a pro-American anti-Russian policy.
In the first years of the occupation of Japan, it was forbidden to have armed forces in general, and today the Americans allowed the Japanese self-defense forces, as the army is officially called, not only ground forces and air forces, but also the navy, which already has four aircraft carriers. I must say, for the defense of the islands from aircraft carriers — very expensive toys — no good but harm. Ground-based aircraft for air defense and repelling attacks from the sea are much more efficient and less vulnerable. In order to temporarily disable the ground airfield, you need to drop dozens of missiles or bombs on it to destroy the runway. In this case, the aircraft based on it may not suffer, just having flown in case of danger to another base.
To destroy an aircraft carrier forever with all aircraft and crew, a single anti-ship missile or torpedo is enough. The aircraft carrier can be effectively used exclusively for the sudden attack of a very remote object - just as the Japanese used their carrier fleet in December 1941 g, attacking US ships in Pearl Harbor. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union did not intend to attack anyone over the ocean, and therefore did not build aircraft carriers, although it had technical capabilities and deck aircraft. The Navy was armed only with aircraft-carrying cruisers, of which today in the ranks alone.
Consequently, if the Americans allowed their Japanese waffen-SS to have aircraft carriers, then they plan to use them. The only thing for which they can be used is the attack of the Kuril Islands. The fact is that all four aircraft carrier ships of the Japanese Navy belong to the class of helicopter carriers. Airplanes are free to operate against the Kuril Islands from bases on the island of Hokkaido, and helicopters whose radius of action is much smaller than that will be used from ships to directly support the landing force. Japanese helicopter carriers have no other meaning, since they cannot act in isolation from their shores.
Tellingly, the United States is not trying to sterilize the historical consciousness of the Japanese. They are really concerned about the issue of nuclear bombing, but Japanese school textbooks on atomic bombs say only that they were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Like, there was a war, and these cities were destroyed. And on the one who dropped the bombs and for what, the attention of schoolchildren is not sharpened. Why distract them with these unnecessary details from the really important question of the "northern territories"? By the way, Japanese schoolchildren study the northern territories not only in history lessons, but also in geography classes. Have you seen Japanese atlases? They are quite different from all the others not only in that the Southern Kuriles there are designated as Japanese territory (and how else?), But also in that all the other islands of the Kuril ridge and the southern part of Sakhalin are marked in white, as lands whose status is not defined So, the “northern territories” - a rubber concept - it can stretch to Kamchatka itself, and there, what the hell is not joking, and to the North Pole. They say that there are large reserves of oil on the shelf of the Arctic Ocean, and Japan just needs them very much.
So, in the history lessons, Japanese schoolchildren study the modern history in great detail, and therefore they know that their country became a great world power, having defeated the Russian imperialists in the 1904 – 1905 war. And Japan lost this honorary status, losing to America. On the fact that the land Kwantung Army of Japan defeated the Soviet Union, the attention of the youths is not focused. Hence the conclusion: you should not fight with the United States, you have to be friends with the Yankees. And in order for Japan to be honored again, it is necessary to crush the Russians again and return the “northern territories”, thereby washing away the shameful stain from the flag of the sacred land of Yamato.
Someone will argue that the attack on the Russian Federation - is still a nuclear power - an adventure. Yes, but no more than attacking Pearl Harborv in 1941 or the cruiser Varyag in the port of Chemulpo in 1904. Besides, it’s not for nothing that the Japanese get in the way that the American occupation is a blessing for the country. As long as at least one American soldier is on their territory, any attack, even non-nuclear, against the islands will be regarded as an attack on the United States with all that it implies. Yes, and the nuclear shield of the Russian Federation is rapidly rusting. The fact is that we cannot do nuclear warheads today. The plant "Yuzhmash", where they were produced, is located in Ukraine. And Ukraine is a foreign country and a potential member of NATO. So, the loss of the status of a nuclear power by the Russian Federation is a matter of time, and very soon. Today, the modernization of the country's nuclear forces is carried out in the following way: the warhead is removed from the out-of-date missiles and put on a more modern one. The fact that these upgraded missiles, for example, the Bulava, are launched in less than half of the cases successfully, is known to all. Therefore, the test launches of the Bulava today are suspended for an indefinite period (it must be understood, forever). But the combat part of the missiles has its own life. In general, over the 18 years of "democracy", the Russian Federation has lost more than 80% of the nuclear potential inherited from the USSR.
The hysteria around the occupied "northern territories" in Japan reached such a heat that it is possible to transfer the patriotic impulse of the masses into the mainstream of practical actions on the "Reconquista" of the Kuril Islands at any moment. I do not presume to say that this moment will certainly come. I only state the fact that the Japanese are morally ready for war and have for this the combat potential that they continue to build up. The people, remembering about their former greatness, always strive to regain their lost status, no matter how irrational this striving may seem, and is ready for this for great sacrifices. The Falkland Islands, located in the opposite hemisphere from them, were needed even less by the British than the Japanese in the Kuriles. However, Great Britain, defending its prestige, got involved in a war with Argentina, without having in mind any practical benefits.
And how ready are the people of the country called Russia to defend their homeland? As long as the people, at least in memory, keep imperial pride, they are ready to fight not only for tangible material goods, but also for the honor of the state. Contact with such people - the owner of a strong historical memory - is fraught. But if you force him to abandon traditional national values in favor of those alien to him, then the once mighty nation will become like a giant, defeated not by an equal opponent, but insidiously poisoned by poison that overshadows the mind and deprives one's will. Take it with your bare hands.
For years, 20 has continued the methodological poisoning of the Russian historical consciousness with the purulent poison of aversion to themselves. Every nation has its golden age. For example, for the UK - the Victorian era, when the capital of the world was London, the world currency - the pound sterling, and the British flag dominated all the seas. Do the current inhabitants of Foggy Albion remember about their historical triumph? Remember, and how! Would they like to return it? Of course! Is there an opportunity for this? Not the slightest! The power of the British Empire was provided by the world's largest colonial system and protectionist trading system. Where will the British take the colonies today? Unless Mars and Alpha Centauri are colonized, and on planet Earth there is no longer a piece of land available for robbery. Among other things, the power of the British Empire grew in drug trafficking, but today the world drug traffic is controlled by the United States (in fact, it was for the sake of this that they climbed into Afghanistan). So the British from the former greatness remained only museums and luxurious mansions in the Victorian style.
The golden age of Russia is the Soviet era, albeit shorter in time than the century of British triumph, but marked by outstanding triumphs. Collectivization, industrialization, the creation of the world's most effective education system and the strongest science, victory in the world war, a breakthrough into space, the creation of an oceanic fleet, the implementation of the first project of a social state in the history of mankind, gaining political and cultural influence on half of humanity - all this fit in some five decades. Is a repetition of such a civilizational breakthrough possible? Yes, and for this, we do not need either imported resources, or imported sages, or overseas colonies. And even my own experience in such a case has not yet been forgotten.
But if one country is rapidly rising, turning into a world hegemon, then some other power is rapidly losing its status as the master of the world. Therefore, a strong and free Russia as a world power is not needed by anyone except Russians. It is not difficult to make conclusions: until the Russian people are completely destroyed, there will be a continuous war against them. The only question is how to destroy the Russian. Physically, to destroy tens of millions of people is very difficult technically. All the crusades of the united forces of Europe to the East ended in collapse. For some reason, these damn Russian savages fiercely resisted every time. The only way to eliminate the Russian threat to the world is to destroy our people spiritually. Figuratively speaking, forcing us to abandon our gods and worship other people's idols, to listen to new teachers, to obey their laws.
Of course, religion in modern society plays almost no role, so there is no point in implanting Catholicism, Judaism or some exotic cults like Aum Shinrike in Russia. The task of our enemies is to force the Russians to abandon the national idea. Like, why do you, Russian, own state, especially, the imperial state? Better integrate into the global community tailored to the North Atlantic. You give us oil, gas, metals, prostitutes, children for adoption and organs for transplantation, and we give you cheap consumer goods and glamorous spiritual food of a Hollywood format. And do not strain to protect their land. Native land is a sacred concept for barbarians, and for civilized people it is just a commodity that can be sold for profit. Accordingly, whether to give the island to the Japanese is not a matter of principle, but a matter of price. And in general, one must live not for the sake of some stupid chimerical ideas like building the kingdom of God on earth, but for the sake of profit.
But to succumb to these sweet speeches Russian interferes with their historical memory, the memory of the recent golden age. Therefore, the main blow in the war to destroy Russia is not inflicted on the enemy’s airfields and submarine bases, but in our memory. Strategically, the emphasis is on sterilization of the historical consciousness of the people, the deformation of the cultural matrix of the nation. Tactically, the main manipulations are based on the method of creating a virtual history based on real events and the gradual expulsion from the consciousness of authentic beliefs about the past. This is the third method of manipulation with historical consciousness.
It is hardly possible to find in the modern history of such an era, which would so vehemently tried to distort as the Soviet. And if thousands of historians deliberately and purposefully clean up the historical memory of Russians year after year, it means that someone needs it, so they pay money for it. Who is the customer - shown above. What is his goal? The destruction of dangerous people. We need to convince Russians that the history of the Soviet Union is a whole chain of sadistic crimes, abuse, perversions and failures. The successes achieved by the Soviet people are useless, and the victories are achieved by inhuman methods and brought only suffering to the people. It is necessary to make the Russians ashamed of their history and repent. Be ashamed and repent, repent and be ashamed. After that, it will be possible to freely load into their consciousness the “right” civilization program, turning the descendants of the proud winners of Europe into its obedient lackeys.
Can a footman, accustomed to grovel and fawn, become a warrior? Here you have the answer to the question of whether the re-educated historians will fight the Russians for the Kuriles. At the right moment, the mass media will explain cattle, that selling Alaska, which is very expensive to master, was very profitable for Russia, and therefore should be given to the Japanese four useless stony islands, because it is very expensive to import fuel oil for boiler houses. And the Russians will not fight for the Arctic. I remember how in school atlases during my childhood from the Kola Peninsula and Chukotka two dotted lines stretched to the North Pole, marking the borders of the polar possessions of the USSR. When sharing the Soviet legacy, they had to go to the Russian Federation. But fuck you! As soon as conversations began about the giant hydrocarbon deposits on the ocean floor, it immediately became clear that everything that goes on 200 nautical miles from the coast is a draw. And sharing this no-brainer wealth will certainly not be in Moscow.
Therefore, I am not at all sure that Japan will have to use its helicopter carriers and landing craft to capture the South Kuriles. Perhaps they will get them on a silver platter with a gold border and belt bow. After that, the Russians will have to part with Kaliningrad, which, of course, will be given the historic name Koenigsberg. The project of the Baltic republic within the EU already exists. Implementing it in practice is a matter of several years. The rest of the population will be explained in a popular way that letting the Kaliningrad region go to Europe is good for the Russian Federation, because by doing so it will be closer to the civilized world.
Then a turning point will come, both literally and figuratively - the remnants of Russia will be broken down into two parts along the line of the Ural Mountains - Muscovy and the Siberian Khanate. In 2003 – 2004, this idea was already exaggerated in the press, but public opinion reacted negatively to it, so the campaign was turned off (it was just a planned campaign, not a manifestation of freedom of speech). The main arguments in favor of the section were as follows. Beyond the Urals, where 80% of Russia's natural wealth is concentrated, 30% of the country's population lives. It is worth Siberia to gain sovereignty, and the natives will live in clover, as in Kuwait. And European Russia, having lost its hydrocarbon freebies, will be able to develop high technologies and will gradually integrate into the European Union. And the fallen oil revenues will be compensated by charging Siberian Khanate fees for the transit of raw materials to Europe and intermediary trade.
Do you think this is unreal? So you absolutely do not understand the essence of historical processes. The plans for dividing the USSR, discussed in the West at the beginning of the 80s, also seemed fantastic. And even more so it was difficult to imagine that Transnistria or Nagorno-Karabakh would become sovereign Bantustans. The project of Academician Sakharov about the collapse of the Union on the 50 appanage principalities called the Union of Soviet Republics of Europe and Asia, even at the end of 80, seemed like a delusion of the old marazmatic. But this is just a declaration of the goal pursued by our enemy. A goal that is half achieved.
And how easily achieved! All that is needed is to izgadit Russian history and in this edited form to drive into the head of the local population. As a result, carpet bombing was not needed to defeat the USSR, which are undesirable because, along with the extra Russians, they destroy useful material assets. History is not only a cheap but also a very humane weapon, because it can turn an invincible enemy into a weak-willed slave without the use of physical violence and damage to the environment.
