Military Review

Fun of the Two-faced Janus

45
It seems to me that it is difficult now to find a person who has not heard such a “simple American surname” as Snowden at least once. The young American “nerd” of a subtle physique, quite unexpectedly for everyone (I think, for himself too) became the cornerstone of the relationship between a number of countries, including such giants of international politics as Russia and China! This is a phenomenon. But not in the sense that it is something out of the ordinary (dissidents have met and are meeting everywhere and always), but in the sense of that unprecedented and frantic noisy reaction that followed from the "main pillar of the democracy of the whole world." Well, the situation itself, as such, is similar to those that have arisen before. It’s enough to illustrate their presence to recall the frictions that arose on the occasion of the flight abroad of Kalugin, the tough confrontation on the occasion of the detention by the Soviet secret services E. Pope, for the sake of the liberation of which the US was ready to put relations between the USSR and the USA to the brink of open confrontation. But if these two cases and many other, less visible ones, were in the nature of a purely struggle to protect their military-technical secrets and the hunt for strangers, the latter case, to a greater extent, acquired a moral and political tint.


Trying to get Snowden back "in the bosom of democracy", the Americans here are trying more to save the "good name" of their special services. But the train is gone. As stated in the joke - "... Died, so - died." If the struggle “for an honest name” arose, so to speak, “from scratch” i. if this name would not have been discredited by so many examples (Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo Prison ...), then one could listen to the eloquent accusatory speeches of American diplomats and blush from accusations against Russia, and listen to requests for extradition of E. Snowden , but something interferes, something holds ... What? And the fact that recently the States themselves have prepared the ground for such an attitude towards themselves. Everyone knows the "odyssey" of Russian citizen Bout, captured by US intelligence services in one country on trumped-up and provoked charges and transferred to another prison. And all this is “in defense of interests”, and appeals to heed the opinion and evidence of the Russian side are successfully broken down like raindrops on the windshield of a speeding car. So how can you defiantly ignoring the arguments of the partner (as is often stated in political statements) and simply stepping over his opinion, expect grateful attention from this partner? It was here that a situation happened when a high-handed burglar gets a “turn-around”. And it does not cause much indignation. Is that light gloating ... But, what really revolts?

And it is outraged that, being carried away by accusations against Russia because of its unwillingness to extradite E. Snowden on demand, the staff members, as they say, “lured the shores”. Everywhere, all over the world, the postulate, faithfully observed (supposedly!) By the American authorities - the rule of law, was impatiently driven into the heads of people. And here, in a situation with a fluent CIA-shny intellectual, we see how this postulate is simply reduced to the status of telephone law. In a situation where there is no agreement between Russia and the United States on the mutual extradition of fugitives, American diplomats initially simply arrogantly demanded, and now appeal to conscience in their attempts to force Russia to return Snowden to their beloved homeland, thereby offering Russia to violate international law and violate just the rights of the individual. And what Russia would look like in the eyes of the world community if it were caved in or falsely ashamed of American reproaches.

One thing is clear - in the situation when the situation of dragging various kinds of secrets carriers to themselves was beneficial to the States and it seemed that it would always be so, they safely evaded numerous appeals from the Russian side to sign an agreement on the extradition of refugees. And when the situation began to evolve backward, proposals to consider the signing of such an agreement were already voiced. So what is this phenomenon - the rule of law in the States? It seems that the US legislators themselves will be in difficulty if asked about it. Because we have an excellent opportunity to observe one of the manifestations of the principle of double standards that is no less familiar to many. From this conclusion - the Law - it is and the thing is good. But in practice, following the principle of the rule of law in the States is the worship of the two-faced Janus - I say one thing and do another. And it is good and significant that it can be seen not only from the Russian limits. Ecuador (a small dwarf in comparison with the States), defending its moral principles and international authority, is ready to complicate relations with the States and the loss of significant trade preferences. And one more good thing is that Russia in this case is very well in the role of just a champion of international law and a guarantor of human rights.

So, good luck to us all and happiness in our country, colleagues.

    But keeping the principle of the rule of law in the States in practice is worshiping the Two-Faced Janus - Judging by the equalization of the rights of normal with gays, worship has long been Two-Faced Anus. And a civilizational platform built on a lie (Western democracy) cannot produce any normal fruits. Only double standards, only a clear division into their own (their freedom, protection, dem. Values) and others (they attack drones and tomahawks, the invasion of troops and help cannibals). Even already tired of writing about the inadequate US state education.

    I even caught one minus. Strange ... what

    You know, from the time of Caesar and Genghis Khan: you can be 100% right according to all international laws, but if your rightness is not backed up by force, you will still be wrong.
    So it’s not a matter of two-faced worship, but normal international practice.
    But the fact that the US is no longer considered is eloquent about the end of a unipolar world.

    My opinion is to issue a passport to Snowden, and settle it somewhere on a thread in Chechnya, Ramzan will accept it with pleasure, complement Gerard. Having previously given him an apartment there in Grozny. Let it work for the good of the new homeland - Russia.

      Snowden revealed Openel's secret. Everyone knows that the special services are engaged in all sorts of unsightly things. The point is in the details, and now, it suddenly became known that they also follow each other, do not trust their "partners" even within NATO - only into the hands of Moscow.
      I think the best option is to bargain with the striped ones, play for time and exchange this bespectacled man for one of our own ... Maybe even "to serve a sentence" or "to pass a sentence." I would try to get one shit out of Israel who was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of the mayor of Nizhnevartovsk (there was an anniversary recently, they commemorated) ...

        Giving Snowden to amer is like giving a child who asks you for protection to a thug-rapist. Whatever this "child" does, his punishment is clearly excessive. So let them go through the forest of p and n o stanzas.

    This story dragged on, you won’t envy Snowden, the best thing for him is to get asylum in Russia, but Putin is not enthusiastic about this idea, maybe because he is a traitor in Africa and a traitor. Old Man generally keeps quiet. Venezuela seems to agree to accept it. I wonder how it will end.

    I liked the expression about invoking conscience. That is, by default they mean: "We know that I am a complete ram and I sit in it, but you are a normal man, well, be a man, well, give it back. And I can promise you what I want. But after giving the guy back!"

    I wonder how they immediately changed the tonality after Ecuador pulled these brazen-Saxons (not my expression). So it is necessary all with this news.

America was born without it and continues to live without it negative , conscience is not a matter of negligence, and one cannot buy it for money No.

    Unfortunately, it seems that no one is interested in granting political asylum to Snowden. A man has not come out of Sheremetyevo for a week now, thanks to the annulment by the Americans of his citizenship, his fate has completely passed into the hands of Russian ministers, and no comments have been received from them. Not interested because of Snowden’s likely refusal to cooperate with Russian special services? But this does not diminish the value of his salvation, the good for asylum will become a bomb primarily for the American society, which mostly approves of this fugitive’s action, and in the future it can play a significant role when this society itself wants a leader who does not want to swear with By Russia. I’m not saying that granting asylum will finally dispel doubts and confirm the status of Russia as a sovereign state that does not dance to anyone’s tune, and can also help normalize relations with the EU, for which this whole story with wiretapping has become a stumbling block in relations with the USA.

A man has not come out of Sheremetyevo for a week already, thanks to the annulment by the Americans of his citizenship, his fate has completely passed into the hands of Russian ministers, and no comments have been received from them.

      But it seems to me that in Sheremetyevo, Snowden is already no longer. He sits somewhere in a summer house near Moscow, and talks sweetly with our specialists.

        A thought that I have been voicing for several days in conversations with friends. Sheremetyevo, of course, has all the conditions for living. But all the same, Edik Snegov (in the world like E. Snowden) would have lit up at least somewhere. And it’s been a week since nobody saw him.

    This is why I "love" the United States, it is for their "spontaneity." They say mutual assistance, all people are brothers and so on, as they say, this is not an empty phrase. Like, that's why we are happy, we tear our navels. Only with such a tiny amendment - you (the rest of the world), US (USA) owe, but WE (USA), YOU (the rest of the world) do not. We, to you, the act of Mvgnitsky, an embargo for those who do not like democracy, the shooting of people by UAVs (Pakistan), the murder of leaders (Libya), interference in sovereignty (the whole world), harboring (we will not give anyone away, they are not criminals, they are fighters for "democracy", I'm talking about those who hid with them). But you (the world) should listen to us in everything, contribute and not discuss at all what WE (USA) are saying. Bummer came out.
    Regarding Snowden's extradition: "It's like cutting a piglet: there is a lot of screeching, but little wool," Putin said figuratively.

    PS I am tormented by the suspicion of where this Snowden has climbed (or that he has learned this), that he has "blown off his roof." Looks like he is draining these "flowers", "berries" are apparently generally stunning.

    It is outraged that carried away by the accusations against Russia because of its unwillingness to extradite E. Snowden at the first request, the United States, as they say, "messed up the coast."

    How beguiled. And in response they should have heard: "You will get a donut hole, not Snowden," or, at worst, "Ears from a dead donkey." But apparently catch phrases Putin uses only for the Baltic limitrophes. In response to the lordly rudeness towards Russia, that Lavrov, that Putin is mumbled, that we have nothing to do with it. Did not cross the border, your amersky traitor, leave me alone.
    And one more good thing is that Russia in this case acts very successfully in the role of just a champion of international law and a guarantor of human rights.

    International law has long been in a place whose verbal designation on the site is prohibited. Should Russia constantly be his champion?
    It is not clear how the story of the Amer fugitive will end, but the Kremlin has a big bunt. In the Duma, everything is simpler.
    The Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Alexei Pushkov, commenting on the situation with the ex-CIA officer, said that the extradition of the fugitive to the American authorities is impossible. The deputy wrote about this in his microblog on Twitter.

    @Alexey_Pushkov: “How can Snowden be useful to Russia - a question in the spirit of Smerdyakov. It's not about benefits - about principle. Issuance of a political refugee is morally unacceptable. ”

      I do not agree. No one mumbled, I generally got the impression that Putin simply waved away from the United States, as if from an annoying fly - they say, leave me alone, not up to you now. And not every president can do this.

It seems like it is a pleasure to make a mistake for the United States, but it is useless to launch this business. And then you never know ... get angry too. "Restart", "partnership", etc ... That is why he is sitting there in Sheremetyevo, because he does not know where to go. And that very "... Ecuador (a small dwarf in comparison with the United States), defending its moral principles and international authority, is ready to complicate relations with the United States ..." judging by the news, after Obamka's call, they were already embarrassed like girls, and suddenly gone too far? ...

      My friend works in the capital's media, their entire editorial board "flew on a business trip" this week, 2 times a day. The task was simple "to find a person like Snowden" or "a person who saw a person like Snowden." We came to the conclusion that Snowden is not in Cher, he disappeared from there for a maximum of 2 days, when he appeared in the hotel.
      With whose help and where is he? Here is room for thought)) But Putin, beautifully and diplomatically, sent a shit out of the issue with Snowden, without saying either yes or no. And while not lying.))

    When the barbarians attacked Rome for the first time, the Romans offered them gold to buy off, the Gauls set the amount when they weighed Roman gold, the Gaul leader Brennus ordered his fighters to pull the counterweight on the scales, and in the end, in front of the surprised Romans, he publicly threw his heavy sword on the counterweight. when the Romans were indignant, they say, "by what right?", the leader said: "by the right of the strong, the strong belongs to the world," and the Romans shut up, wiped themselves off and paid, but remembered for the future. So, when the United States demands to give them the NSA, they do it by the right of the strong, who will act as long as there is at least one person on earth. Russia now is the Rome that will break, break, but in the end it will do what the Americans say.

      Although to me personally, "weirder and weirder." Assange Ecuador is hiding in the embassy, ​​but Snowden could not. At the same time, Assange helps Snowden hide. Sounds like complete nonsense. or some kind of wiring.

Today, world leadership has ceased to be a game of "King of the Hill." At the same time, determination and strength, although important, are not the most important qualities for victory. Much more valuable is the ability to balance correctly and in a timely manner in a rapidly changing situation.What Russia is doing now. hi

And now it will be hard to fight against GDP, he will remember them all and the Kalugins and Rezunov and Buta and Yaroshenko, there are still a lot of thieves. Thought to scare and not work. In my opinion, the bid will be long.

    According to the senator, the United States should take a tough stance.

    “Relations with Putin are much more complicated, but I agree with John McCain: Putin must understand that this will not get away with him. After all, he is doing everything to annoy America, whether it be Iran, Syria, and now that’s, ”said Schumer ...
