Already in the Western media, Putin is unwittingly praised, recognizing his victory in this battle (meaning the heated debate around Syria at the meeting of the G8 leaders in Northern Ireland). But believe us, it's too early for us to rejoice!
I was always called grumpy, not for years. Let it be so. For the "dashing 90-e", putting an end to the Union, and Russia put upside down, you know, used to question everything. In my deep conviction, what happened in Northern Ireland is just a bite of a robbed Europeans with an “American” (I am writing this word in quotes, because there is no such nation). The bite, of course, was painful, but, alas, not something that is not fatal, but not even sobering. The leader of our state managed to save face, without succumbing to either persuasion or threats.
But how many times did the Russian leadership seemingly consistently oppose NATO itself? I can list: Serbia, Iraq, Libya. The case of Serbia is generally special. Our country then condemned the policy of the alliance, despite the fact that the traitor and killer of the Russian people Borka was bloody in power (I would never call this creature any other way!). Even he did not dare to remain silent at that moment and verbally supported the Serbian brothers. Apparently, he was afraid of the wrath of his own people.
But the words and all limited. However, we didn’t protect Serbia, Iraq or Libya in fact (Abkhazia and South Ossetia are a separate song, because these lands are near our borders, they are a separate conversation). Therefore, it is extremely important that today our participation once again does not limit itself to beautiful words.
We have taken the side of Syria, and we are great. And now the most difficult thing is to defend it! And why, in fact, we have Syria? First of all, let's not fool ourselves. Syrian Arabs are not our brotherly people, and we don’t precisely baptize children with them. I can not say that I am delighted with Bashar al-Assad. But here, let's distract a little ... And compare Barack Obama, as NATO leader, who proposes, in fact, to destroy another independent country, and the leader of the Syrian people, who are trying to protect their people (for now, from thugs, mercenaries, but the future is also possible from those who “bring democracy to the world”). Even such a superficial comparison of their goals is already tilting the scales not in the direction of the “American.”
If you go a little deeper, opening at least “Wikipedia”, we learn that Assad has a diploma of an ophthalmologist (a humane profession, by the way, and he took her seriously seriously). In addition, when the elder brother died, Bashar learned that he inherited the power of his father, he returned without hesitation to Syria (and in fact he could remain in the west and not take control over the far from the easiest state). So he, understanding that the leader is, first of all, a defender of his people, he also graduated from the military academy, and did not serve in the headquarters, but in the most real command posts. In other words, a person consciously prepared to lead the country, to be with it, as they say, in grief and in joy.
And Obama? - Another graduate lawyer from Columbaria (I’m so daring to call Columbia University, for a very low opinion of American education) and Harvard in the appendage. Next - the beaten track of future puppets from the White House (I hope you don’t have to explain why puppets?): Illinois state senator and president (God, how I hate this foul foreign word when we already understand what’s wrong to call the person who heads Russia ?!). In other words, Obama was well aware that he would come to the White House on 4 or, if lucky, on 8 years, and then pass the country on like a baton.
And now weigh it: on the one hand, the leader, for whom his country is his life, and on the other, a person who is just doing a certain job (everything else is temporary). Well, forgive me, I took it very far in the direction, I just really want my compatriots not to be likened to “miracles” from oxfords, harvards, Cambridge, princeons and other yaley, but would think more deeply and more often.
In any case, this is not the main thing for us now. Russia is not so much on the side of Syria, as opposed to the States and NATO. Syria has become for us an unwitting friend, since it is soon - the enemy of our enemy. And now they are getting close to the most important thing. It is very important for us to do everything possible and impossible, so that Asad could hold out because next in line ... TRANSNESTER!
It is no coincidence that Moldovans are in such a hurry to the EU, they hope that Brussels will “help them to bring order to order” the recalcitrant left bank of the Dniester. And how can Brussels "help"? - Yes, we all know! Asking Washington to intervene. In essence, the EU is the same NATO country, only without its “commander” of the USA. You can still make such a comparison - in Washington, sits the "president of NATO", and in Brussels - the "parliament" of "presidents" and "kings-kings" with a lower rank.
And Transnistria is even worse than Abkhazia and South Ossetia, because the majority of the inhabitants of this region are Russian people! In order to avoid unnecessary foolish questions, I repeat: Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarusians are the ONLY RUSSIAN PEOPLE. And here Russia will have to protect our people in an open war with NATO troops. Are we ready? - Obviously, not yet.
So, Syria is not just our companion in misfortune, it is the last frontier of Russia outside our land. Someone has already read my article (also on the “Military Review”) about a Chinese soldier standing on “Chinese” land. Remember i'm there an example of stories cited? About the leader of the people of the Huns, Shanyu Mode and his confrontation with the nomadic Dunhu. For those who did not read, this very Mode led his warriors to fight for a seemingly empty and insignificant piece of land. Consider that Syria has become such a “scrap” for us now.
Yes, God be with him, with Mode! Syria, if you will, is our Krasnaya Polyana, which is far from Moscow, our Stalingrad, which is far from the Volga. And nowhere to retreat! How can Russia not allow Syria to repeat the fate of Serbia, Iraq and Libya? How?! - Yes, just by doing something that in all the above cases could, but did not (or did not want). Well, seriously, there are two types of measures: diplomatic (together with economic) and military. Let's start with the first ...
The first. Putin, if he wants to win, should be today, right now, looking for allies among other countries that are ready to take the side of Syria. One against seven - of course, worthy of all respect, but doomed to failure. In his place, I would only have returned to Moscow from Belfast (the capital of Northern Ireland), I would have sent an emergency meeting invitation to those who could in this difficult task become our supporters. To whom? - And what, for China, is it not an opportunity to shake the "world hegemon"? Where China is, and there is the DPRK, they will be happy at all, which is also not alone now. Iran is also, of course (he is interested in continuing cooperation with us in the nuclear industry). Well, Latin America, why forget? - Venezuela will support (good, Maduro won there) and Cuba (well, why not?). How many counted? - That's right, already six of us against seven, so in fact there is Syria itself. That, seven-on-seven, silushki already almost equal.
Just do not call me an idiot now, which does not take into account the technical equipment of the NATO armies and us, together with possible allies. - I consider everything! In addition to the United States, Britain and the German Bundeswehr, all the others can not be taken into account! And remember that even the not very smart Angela Merkel had enough brains to participate in this venture to give up in advance. And Cameron and his generals attacked Cameron, they say, where are you going ?! So, our position in terms of weight at the international level will be about the same.
The second. In the case of ANY attempt to directly or indirectly attack Syria (by indirect request, please understand the preparation of the next stream of thugs from all edges and the supply weapons to the enemies of Assad), no confused protests - the immediate expulsion of all NATO representatives from Russia. And by all means agree in advance with future allies to do the same on the same day. After the warning that the next step will be a break in diplomatic relations with ALL countries that have accepted (again, directly and indirectly).
By the way, even Borka-bloody decided to go for a complete break with NATO, when they treacherously attacked Serbia. True, he shouted and soon "brought everything back to normal". Immediately make a reservation, if this time we have to expel the "NATO members", then they can NEVER return them already!
Third. I am sure that this will not come to that, just in case. If NATO does not stop even after the expulsion of its representatives from our country and from allied countries, make a promise and break diplomatic relations! Expel embassies, consulates, representative offices - all, in short.
And so that “life does not seem to them as honey,” add the third measure to the fourth economic measure. Europe gas cut off! In 2008, we went to this only for a couple of days so that Ukraine would stop stealing our gas, remember? And what then howl rose. Yes, Ukraine itself, its "patrons", figuratively speaking, "was knocked under the table." I repeat, the probability of third and fourth measures is one against 999!
But! Possible and the fifth measure. Moreover, it can be resorted to, dropping the third and fourth. Together with the allies, condemning NATO and, above all, the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations. Make it extremely loud, forgetting such concepts as "decency" and "dipethet". Not the case! When the fate of the Motherland is decided about all there "indecently uncivilized" to think simply CRIMINALLY !!! It is not a sin to ask the same Vladimir Wolfovich Eidelstein (known to everyone as Zhirinovsky) to conduct several lessons for our representatives who are going to New York. I have no doubt he will be honored.
In fact, it would be good for all the states that I called here our possible allies in the fight against the United States and NATO, in general, to declare that the UN has completely exhausted itself! And it is time to dissolve it, starting to create a new international organization. Naturally, the headquarters of this new organization should not be in New York at all, but on land owned by a state that does not interfere in anything and does not join any military blocs. Light wedge not converged on Europe and North America! - Why not be such a headquarters in Mauritius, Madagascar or ... in the Fiji Islands? And even in Antarctica ... While joking, and there, who knows? ..
In this article, I deal with the UN reform only in passing. If in the reviews write that you are interested, I will devote a separate article to the “united” nations.
We turn to military measures.
The first. Of course, Syria, before it’s too late, you need to equip it with the latest technology (as far as possible). It is very good if the C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems are in fact already in Assad. If not, bring them to him immediately. I wrote here Gazeta.ru (of course, you can't believe, but this is not important now), allegedly we also put the Syrians on combat Yak-130. WHAT FOR?! Yes, this plane is good for study (the Yakovlev Design Bureau won a tough competition to start producing), but not for a fight. At the salon in Le Bourget, the director of the engineering center of the Irkut corporation, Konstantin Popovich, assured that it was possible to remake it in combat by installing an optical-location station and easy booking. But, I hope, no one will argue that this is not the machine that opposes the "NATO vultures"?
So, the truth was written about these “yaks” or not, it doesn’t matter. The bottom line is that Assad needs to deliver not old and not training weapons, but new ones. Let's say the MiG-31B interceptors. Needless to say, for the ground battle, the Syrian government troops must receive both good small arms and equipment (the same BPM-3, Tanks T-90).
We must climb out of the skin, but to help Asad in the coming months to crush all the militants and, preferably, completely destroy them. After all, if he has time to turn this up before the direct intervention of NATO, the intervention will become nothing more than an attack on an independent state. When no one in the country revolts, there is no one to "defend" the valiant "champions of democracy." This is a truism!
The second. If, contrary to all our aspirations, until the approach of the “big brother” forces to the Syrian government troops to destroy the militants will not succeed, Russia, too, should decide on a military presence. And here, too, there are several ways.
Already today, Assad can offer accommodation on his land of our Air Force base. Let's hope that the big war will not come, but the base in the Middle East alone will not prevent us. For some reason, more than I am sure that in their present position the leader of the Syrian people will agree.
And where is the base, there is the air force itself. In Syria, this may be a regiment of the same interceptors MiG-31B. The personnel of the regiment are exclusively experienced pilots (from the captain and above). And even not so. Such a regiment of Russia just need to have. Let it be a kind of "fire brigade", ready to fly an alarm to any part of the world. And according to the level of training ... Well, imagine “Vityazi” or “Swifts”, but not created for shows at air shows and parades, but for combat! Of course, the conditions of service of these officers are bound to be paradise. Say, the salary of an ordinary pilot of such a regiment while he is in Russia is no less than 300 000 rubles / month. It is clear that if the regiment is provided to help one of our allies, then this ally (in our case, Comrade Asad) will take over all of its contents for the time of rendering assistance. I think the very presence of our regiment will be able to cool the “hotheads” and force NATO to abandon all “non-flying zones” there.
Finally, it is unlikely, but still possible and the support of Syria from the sea. Why is unlikely? - Yes, because the Syrian coast is the Mediterranean coast, closed from all sides. There our ships are much more difficult than, suppose, in the Persian Gulf. In general, if there are enough of our ships (and submarines) in the Mediterranean Sea and Assad’s willingness to pay for such a “pleasure”, it would have been possible to prevent NATO ships from entering the Syrian waters.
I perfectly understand the entire utopianism of the item “last”, but why not use it at least as a “trump card” for an insolent bluff?
I sincerely hope that all of the military measures will require only the first. Although the conversation about the construction of our base (or the transfer to our use of the Syrian base) also does not prevent to start.
The reasons why the West will surrender will not come to the application of extreme measures
Already at a distance I feel how the readers of these lines respond about me. "Moron! Bolobol! Provocateur! ”- rushes in your minds ...
Yes, you calm down and breathe evenly. With due persuasiveness (sometimes our diplomatic corps lacks it), just hinting at our possible steps will be more than enough.
Think for yourself. Europe has not yet developed its notorious renewable energy sources to completely abandon our gas. And about the income that Russian lovers bring to travel and, as a result, plenty to walk, I keep quiet. European and American businessmen will not want to lose the Russian market. A fever-ridden Europe will not be able to provide them with proper demand.
And now let us remember that the same Obama is only a puppet in the hands of puppeteers. Who are these puppeteers? - Well, of course, business. People with money, to put it simply. I have no doubt that whether Russia be consistent - these Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Morgans, Goldmans and Saxons themselves will tell their “ruler”: “What are you doing, brute! Well, agree with the Russians! ”
And since the European “rulers” and “blood orange” are the essence, the same weak-willed puppets in the hands of the “money bags”, the same thing will happen to them one-to-one.
And let the "fifth column" turn into the first. Now you have the right to ask me: “But won't they exert the same pressure on our Putin?” “Of course, they will!” Here we will see: how the head of our state is independent and able to bend his line. If he managed to free himself from addiction, which undoubtedly took place in the first years of his reign (let's not forget from whose hands he got the power), then he will be able to answer something like this: “Do you lose profit ?! - Understand. Do you need to agree? I also understand. And I need, but so that Russia, which you have forgotten for your money, does not lose face! So go and strike you for her. "
And what, is it bad, if not the first persons of our state, but prokhorovs, Abramovichs, Izmailovs, Deripaskas, become humiliated and once again “agree”? - Do you feel sorry for them ?! - I do not! Indeed, in truth, the place of these "gentlemen" who imagined that we are their slaves, in the mines, on logging sites and construction sites in permafrost regions. So let them at least once work out their "kurshaveli" and "ruble"!
Following the rich in the same direction, you can send "people" and smaller ones in the same direction: mediocre and voiceless singers and singers who bought houses in Miami, politicians like Nemtsov, Kasyanov and Kudrin. Yes, a lot more who.
The main thing - do not give up and do not bend yourself! And in conclusion ... Do you really think that I myself believe in all the above? Comrades readers, yes, I got carried away. But oh my god, how sometimes you want to dream that it was not the “plastic world” of the West that won from the song of rock musician Yegor Letov, but our, original, real !!! A plastic lost, finally, his unfeeling doll little face, striking them with a swing in ... (well, you know where). But still I believe, even if not now, but through 10 for many years, the victory will be ours !!! After all, it is our right.
