Military Review

Fun of the Two-faced Janus

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.

      Сноуден раскрыл секрет Полишинеля. То, что спецслужбы занимаются всякими неприглядными делами - известно всем. Дело в деталях и сейчас, вдруг стало известно, что они следят и друг за другом, не доверяют "партнерам" даже внутри НАТО - только на руку Москве.
      Считаю оптимальным вариантом - поторговаться с полосатыми, потянуть время и обменять этого очкарика на кого-нибудь из своих... Может даже "для отбытия срока заключения" или "для вынесения приговора". Я бы попробовал вытащить из Израиля одного хрена, который осужден на пожизненное за убийство мэра Нижневартовска (недавно годовщина была, поминали)...

    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.

    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.

      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.

    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."

    Еще как попутали. И в ответ должны были услышать: "дырку от бублика вы получите,а не Сноудена", или на худой конец "От мертвого осла уши". Но видимо крылатые фразы Путин употребляет только для прибалтийских лимитрофов. В ответ на барское хамство в сторону России, что Лавров,что Путин мямлии, что мы дескать не причем.Не пересекал границу, ваш амерский предатель, отстаньте.
    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. ”

      In response to the lordly rudeness towards Russia, that Lavrov, that Putin mummy, that they say nothing to do with.

      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.

Вроде как и США поднагадить - удовольствие, но как бы и запускать это дело негоже. А то мало ли... разозлятся слишком. "Перезагрузка", "партнерство" и т.д... Поэтому и сидит он там в Шереметьево, потому что не знает куда податься. И тот самый "...Эквадор (маленький карлик по сравнению со Штатами), отстаивая свои моральные принципы и международный авторитет, готов пойти на осложнение отношений со Штатами..." судя по новостям, после звонка Обамки, уже застеснялись как девочки, а вдруг сильно далеко зашли?...

Задача стояла простая "найти человека, похожего на Сноудена" или "человека, который видел человека ,похожего на Сноудена". Пришли к выводу, что Сноудена в Шере нет , исчез он от туда максимум на 2 день, когда засветился в гостинице.
      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.))
