No ... Putin caught the biggest fish in the White House (Forbes, USA)

95
Obviously, Russian President Vladimir Putin was in fact unusually modest last week, posing with a huge 23-kilogram pike he caught in Siberia. If he really wanted to boast of his outstanding fishing abilities, he could show a significantly larger fish, which he fished here in America.


No ... Putin caught the biggest fish in the White House (Forbes, USA)


Putin demonstrated his skills the next day when he gave the American thief of secret information Edward Snowden a shelter for a period of one year, and this was done despite the numerous demands of the White House for his extradition. Attorney General Eric Holder (Eric Holder) even assured his counterpart Alexander Kovalev that the United States would not seek the death penalty of Snowden and would not (horror of horrors!) Torture him if this prodigal son — please very much ask — will be sent back to his forgiving homeland.

Based on the fact that Russia probably gained access to all the secret information at the disposal of Snowden, this refusal, to all appearances, was largely dictated by the main desire, namely, to proudly present the leader of a vengeful superpower as another significant trophy.

In addition, it should be said about the contempt and contempt that were demonstrated by the Russian military, who sent their flagship warship with guided missiles on board to the shores of Cuba. On July 26, an official representative of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia, said in an interview with the Interfax-AVN news agency: “The Moscow cruiser and the large sea tanker Bubnov are heading to Havana during the fourth week of their long-distance cruise.” He also added that on the way to Cuba the cruiser will make test launches of cruise missiles.

US officials said that this visit to Cuba is part of Moscow’s efforts to strengthen relations with Communist Cuba in the military, energy and transport sectors. Prime Minister Medvedev prepared a valuable gift in connection with the entry of ships and announced that Moscow is writing off most of Cuba’s Soviet-era debt, which is estimated to be close to 30 billions of dollars.

There is also reason to believe that the program of Russian-Cuban cooperation includes the resumption of electronic espionage from the territory of a large Soviet-era intelligence complex in Lourdes, near Havana. This complex is located less than 100 miles from Key West Island, and its facilities will be able to intercept most communications in the southeastern United States.

My God, why don't we all live together

In the end, the point is not that President Obama has not done everything possible to fulfill Putin’s demands and begin to live in harmony. So where is the gratitude and respect? Of course, nothing of the kind has been observed, and at the same time the whole world is witnessing how the administration itself, mired in scandals, is probably surprised that Barry even after recent friendly photo shoots and exchanges of silly jokes with Vlad at the G-8 summit in North she Ireland could not bring Snowden home.

When some time ago during a press conference in Finland, Putin was asked about the Snowden case, he simply smiled and said: “I would prefer not to deal with such issues. It's like cutting a piglet - a lot of screeching, and little wool. ” He also added: “He does not cross the border, he does not need a visa. And all the accusations against Russia (regarding assistance to him) are nonsense and nonsense. ”

Putin simply explained that Russia does not have an extradition treaty with the United States, and suggested that Moscow could only send Snowden if he were a criminal. While standing at the residence of the Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and standing next to him, Putin said: "On the territory of the Russian Federation, Mr. Snowden, thank God, did not commit any crimes."

At a press conference in Saudi Arabia, Secretary of State John Kerry stressed that the United States really does not have an extradition treaty with Russia, but, nevertheless, Moscow must abide by the practice of customary law that exists between states when it comes to fugitives. “I simply call for calm and rationality. We would like to hope that Russia will not side with a person fleeing from justice, ”said Kerry. He also reminded the Russians that over the past few years, the United States has transferred seven people suspected of committing crimes "among those" they wanted to receive. "

This is all about rationality. Just a couple of days after Christmas, Putin signed a law banning the adoption of Russian children by citizens of the United States. As a result, a bilateral agreement that entered into force just a month before was canceled. The ban on adoption was hastily conducted through the Russian parliament after the US Congress passed the Magnitsky Act, prohibiting Russians who violate human rights from visiting the United States and using the services of banks in America.

After reloading forward to an amazing new START treaty

And where is all this famous spirit of "reset" and cooperation with Russia, the manifestations of which, as we were told, we were right to expect? Remember how the president of the United States during the global summit in Seoul assured Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have “greater flexibility” when discussing controversial issues after the November elections? Medvedev, with a sense of duty, said that he would convey these words to Putin, who was still preparing to become president.

And he actually received this flexibility, and as a concession to Russia, he postponed funding for ground-based interceptor missiles (GBI) and radars that the United States promised to install in Poland and in the Czech Republic to protect against Iranian launchers. It should be particularly noted that Obama informed our faithful NATO allies of the Poles about his decision to abandon our commitments to provide former Soviet satellites with protection against a rocket attack from belligerent Russia, and this was done in a telephone conversation held on 17 September 2009 of the year, 70 day anniversary of the Soviet invasion. He then claimed that another, better plan was at his disposal.

Then in March of this year, he also refused from this “better plan” when Defense Minister Chuck Hagel announced that the fourth and last phase of the Eastern European missile shield program, which, incidentally, would also protect the territory of the United States from Iranian missiles. The fourth phase involved the development of the SM-3IIB interceptor missile, a more improved version of the missiles that our Aegis anti-missile ships are currently equipped with. The three previous phases were supposed to counteract only missiles aimed at Europe.

By the way, Russia is currently completing the construction of a large Armavir radar in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad, which will be able to monitor missile launches from Europe and Iran. It was at this point on the Baltic Sea coast that Russia initially threatened to deploy its modern Iskander short-range rocket launchers capable of being equipped with nuclear warheads, Moscow declared its readiness to take such a step if the Bush administration proceeds with its plans for deploying ground-based interceptor missiles in Poland and Romania, as well as an anti-missile radar in the Czech Republic. Well, you know, these are those that the Obama administration refuses in the expectation that Russia will politely agree to make corresponding general reductions in the field of defense.

Meanwhile, Armavir, one of the four modern anti-missile radars built by Russia in recent years, will be urgently put into operation before 2020. Each of them is able to track 500 objects simultaneously. Three radars have already been deployed near St. Petersburg and in Siberia, in the Irkutsk region. All of them are protected by the most modern Russian anti-aircraft missile systems C - 400.

But according to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we are still far from achieving Russian love. After Hagel’s statement that the implementation of the fourth phase of the Eastern European anti-missile shield will be postponed indefinitely, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement criticizing the Pentagon for “continuing to strengthen its global anti-missile system and improve its effectiveness.”

Meanwhile, Russia is illegally expanding the global scope of its missiles. Recently, the Russians, in violation of the Medium and Shorter Range (INF) Treaty 1987, carried out tests of the Yars-M ballistic missile. This treaty prohibits testing and producing ballistic and cruise missiles with a range of 500 to 5 000 kilometers. Russia can bypass it, claiming that they are actually long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) designed to replace old weapons systems.

President Putin 19 June noted that some of the "neighbors" of Russia (primarily China was meant) are also developing medium-range missiles. According to him, Moscow will not allow the treaty on medium-range missiles to hinder the strengthening of strategic weapons. In addition, Russia plans to deliver anti-ship missiles, as well as earth-class missiles - air to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which represents a particular threat to Israel.

Refusing the Eastern European nuclear shield, our commander-in-chief put an end to it or even abandoned several important weapons development programs. This should include a reduction in the creation of aircraft-mounted lasers capable of intercepting enemy missiles in the early launch phase, as well as refusal to develop multiple warhead interceptor missiles (MKV) and kinetic energy interceptors (KEI) using small charges and capable of distinguishing false goals that increase the chances of success.

The planned replacement of Ohio-class nuclear submarines equipped with nuclear ballistic missiles was also postponed, and a new decision has not yet been made as to whether the new generation of strategic bombers will be able to carry nuclear weapons on board. weapon. In the meantime, Russia, as it became known, is creating submarines of the new class “Borey”, capable of carrying on board the 16 nuclear missiles of the long-range “Bulava”. The Russians also intend to place a naval formation in the Mediterranean on a permanent basis this year, and the new Russian strategic bomber will be ready for 2020.

Naivety, which has become beyond

In mid-April, White House National Security Advisor Thomas Donilon passed a still secret letter from President Obama to President Putin during his visit to Moscow during his visit to Moscow. Putin’s aide, Yury Ushakov, speaking to reporters, noted that this message "touches upon the problems of military policy, including issues of missile defense and nuclear arsenals."

Republican Party member Mike Rogers of Alabama, who chairs the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces of the Arms Committee of the US House of Representatives, confirmed that the military plan is nearing completion and that “it is likely that further substantial reductions of nuclear weapons will be recommended. United States forces. " “As the available reserves are reduced, we have reached a situation in which further reductions are of paramount importance to national security,” he stressed.

At the same time, the creation of one of the main ones for the modernization of the complexes, necessary for extending the life of our aging nuclear warheads, is currently postponed for at least five years, and some believe forever. Whereas Russia, which possesses the world's largest nuclear arsenal, continues to modernize and upgrade its warheads. Russia is also preparing to adopt a new generation of intercontinental ballistic missiles, each of which will be capable of carrying up to 15 warheads.

Chairman of the Armed Services Committee of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Buck McKeon - a Republican from the state of California - expressed concern that the debate on arms reduction with Russia is not conducted on an equal footing. Referring to Obama's mentioning of this topic in a speech delivered by 19 June in Berlin, he stressed: “The President’s desire to start a new round of arms control negotiations with the Russians, while Russia is behaving dishonestly if the conditions of the most important existing agreement on control over nuclear weapons raises questions about credulity. ”

In addition, Russia was presented with another olive branch in order to begin negotiations on a new START treaty, and now the Obama administration is proposing to deactivate one-third of one-third of the nuclear arsenal of the United States and do so without Senate consent. Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney described it as “the most dangerous thing among the steps taken by the American presidents in my memory. This is not the time to embark on such a dangerous path, as China, Russia, Iran and North Korea are increasing their nuclear forces. ”

Current commander of the pacific fleet U.S. four-star Admiral Cecil ED Haney, who was promoted to head of the U.S. Strategic Command, said in a Senate hearing on his new appointment on July 30 that he would oppose unilateral cuts. Admiral Haney emphasized that nuclear modernization is “even more critical” for an aging US arsenal, given the cuts provided for in the new START treaty. “It is very important that we have reliable, safe and effective nuclear deterrents and that the industrial base supports it.”

So now we all have to wait for Obama to offer his new best friend Vladimir in the field of arms control, when they meet in September during the G-20 group summit in St. Petersburg. The level of tension is simply astounding, and it can certainly be compared to Nancy Pelosi's arousal at the moment when she wanted to find out what pretty can be found in the fair bag of the Obama’s medical support program, which the Democratic-controlled Senate approved reading.

In the meantime, we can argue that President Obama is also in suspense. Ultimately, isn’t President Obama “restored America’s position in the world”? In an interview with CNN on 2009, he said: “We saw very specific areas of cooperation on the nuclear issue. During my inauguration, the world community was still divided as to the true intentions of Iran ... We mobilized the international community. Now we have such means of verification as the International Atomic Energy Agency, we have a group of P-5 plus one, which includes Russia and China, and everyone is talking to the leaders of Iran - you are on the wrong side stories».

And if you like this monstrous lie, then you should listen to the funny story about fish that causes Putin to laugh.

      The article is a scarecrow for the average person. Everything is bad with us, but the enemy’s everything is just chocolate.
      But what’s interesting is that in this article we see the real panic of the Americans. The Russians are coming. Without understanding this, the author said Russia is equal to us. Not weaker, but in some ways stronger. And you need to take it very seriously.
      Well ... To be afraid, then they will respect. The Americans generally respect only a good fist in front of a thick nose.

        Here's what really pissed me off: "As a concession to Russia, postponed funding for ground-based interceptor missiles (GBIs) and radars that the United States had promised to install in Poland and the Czech Republic to protect against Iranian launchers." What kind of concessions? Come on, we will also make concessions: we will abandon the deployment of nuclear missiles in Cuba and plans to rebuild the Berlin Wall. Yes, these concessions will not be easy for us either, but what cannot be done for the sake of peace ...
        In the coffin we saw such concessions. At first they will create a problem out of the blue, then they will graciously deign from obvious stupidity to refuse, and they still have the audacity to demand reciprocal steps from Russia.

        Judging by such a project as the bridge to the Russkiy Island, ours will be "not at all consistent with what is needed."

        The preponderance is obvious in Europe. It's time to abandon the agreement signed by the EBN and build up strength in the Western District. Airfields in all Baltic countries are already captured by NATO. The Americans are going to be accommodated there. So you can’t wait, you have to deploy troops, missile tactical and operational systems, and tank divisions. Stop listening to the murderers from the damned England, the USA and our libadists.

        I believe that if they have more planes and tanks in 10 more, then for us and for them this does not change anything. Today, completely different realities, the presence of nuclear weapons and strategic nuclear forces reduce to zero any conventional weapons, so neither NATO, nor China, nor anyone else, nor even all together, will ever use conventional weapons against Russia.
        Z.Y. Conventional weapons are certainly needed, but not in such wild quantities.

      It seems to me that the United States is quietly quietly switching its attention to the Far East. The revival of the Russian TF and the activity of the PRC are forcing us. So from Asia, it is not free will to creep out ...

    I always "like" such articles (both American and ours). A certain fact is taken, taken out of the general context, and morally sucked in the context of "oh, how bad the gentleman did ... We are with him with all our hearts, and he is with us ..." The largest fish (a whole school) in recent history was caught by the United States when they were able to destroy the USSR. But it's not enough to catch - you still need to pull it out and distill it into cutlets. And they caught it - they caught it, even almost pulled it out, but early rushed to pour the whiskey - the biggest one - Russia fell.
    And the subtitle of the article "Lord, why don't we all live together" is clearly incomplete. In the context of US behavior on the world stage, it should have sounded like this: "Lord, why don't we all live together - on our terms!"

        Fill the tanks like a real fisherman - "About the same and weighed over 30 kg" ... This is to say that not even a week has passed before our media trumpeted Putin’s great achievement - I caught a pike weighing 21 kg. The author has 23, you have 30 ....
        Hleb correctly asked a question. This (ordinary) pike and weighs up to 15 kg. But Putin should have more.

        Pike did not shoot, but taimen accounted for. And in appearance, it weighs, perhaps even more. Surprised are those who do not poke further than the cottage rivers of the nose. He himself recently came from fishing. He lifted an eight kilo timer, for about forty minutes he chased me, for joy, he poured half a liter at a time.

          A meter weighs 10-12 kg.
          The GDP is less than a meter, somewhere around 80 santims. That means up to 10 kg.

Was it really caught on a spinning rod, and not planted in a half-dead state, that this is a real, "evil", and not specially fattened pike, etc., etc. I will not undertake to comment, I was not there.

    Panic already. If only in paroxysm the button was not pressed.
    Only this article of the American analyst contains a lot of omissions and direct lies for their domestic consumption.
    They say that the USA itself impudently does not comply with the START treaty, and many other violations (they promised the hunchback not to push NATO to the east, but themselves?), Moreover, they do not destroy but store the removed warheads.
    They didn’t put a radar in the Czech Republic, not because they changed their minds to please Russia, but because the Czech people rebelled against this.
    About the alleged transfer of criminals - but what, Buta and Chechen field commanders have already been given to us? How many times have we proposed signing an extradition treaty? Refused? Now row with a full shovel.

    With their "reboot" - handsome in general. "You forget that we fucked you so much before, let's reboot and expect new real concessions from you under our promises to think about discussing the possibility of considering the need to do something for you."
    This will be a gem "if the Bush administration starts implementing plans to deploy ground-based interceptor missiles in Poland and Romania, as well as an anti-missile radar in the Czech Republic. will politely agree to make appropriate general defense cuts. "
    Fine? "We will never build ONE radar, and you reduce ALL defense."

    They are reducing their armament not because they are fawning under the label of "reset", but stupidly the economy tore up their ass in attempts to control the whole world by troops.

    In general, panic is visible to the naked eye, and this lying article is a good illustration of this. Thank.

      Quite right !!! Both are purely defensive weapons that are supplied to the legitimate regime. In principle, it is not possible to attack with their help - to protect YOUR sky and YOUR sea territory - yes, but not to attack.

    “It is very important that we have reliable, safe and effective nuclear deterrents and that the industrial base supports it.”

    Who would doubt that. In Russia, when they talk about nuclear potential, they call it a deterrent weapon. This is the key difference. It turns out their weapon is a kind of evil bulldog, our weapon is a chain ... Not a weapon is scary, but the thoughts of those who have it. Therefore, one way or another, it is Russia's weapons that are the barrier that separates the war from the world, so to speak, on guard of this world.

And how else to knock out money from the budget for the maintenance of the military-industrial complex, special. services and army? After all, if the average person understands that no one in the USA is aiming for ICBMs, then how can you explain to him why a country with such a budget has a debt of almost two tens of trillions of their money?

    Well, just oh !! Is a visit to a friendly country an insult to the United States? Moreover, Russian sailors daily go to the latrine in the territory of direct US influence. The author of the article probably forgot to tell us about the secret report to Obama, which says that the Russians do this immediately after going on a hike, they go to the latrine, they just shit at the United States from the bridge of "Moscow" (which is symbolic, I would have noticed this). And another thing is very noticeable when it comes to missile defense in Europe, for an American it is natural to talk exclusively about the dialogue between the Russian and American presidents, for him it is already natural and he does not even notice that in Europe there are some other countries with their own governments and interests other than the interests of the United States, rub down Europe for the bar servants furniture, they do not notice it. And the last thing I would like to note, well, even if the president was fishing, he caught a pike, which makes him even more of a person for me, for whom power and money are not everything, to whom human is not alien. You can, of course, look for symbolism in all this, but in this the author found something like that as scary to himself. I once saw footage of V.V. Putin riding a horse, so did Larry Bell see the bit in the bloody foam in Obama's mouth and did he? Did I see a hump on it filled with a galloping horse with Putin, did I see traces of spurs on the sides of Obama, if I didn’t see then the author is a bad analyst and a bad patriot of his country, because urgent action must be taken, after all, given that Putin is concerned and is engaged in saving storks, Larry Bell, you urgently need to do analytical forecast like next time V.V. Putin and Russia want to offend the United States and who to get into bed with.

      It seems I was mistaken about Putin's concern about storks, like it was about saving the Cranes. Then, if you follow the logic of American analysts, things are even worse. If the symbol is storks and they eat frogs and you need to ask from these Russians who they are holding for a toad, and among other things, we can conclude that the President of Russia is concerned about the growth of the population of his country, but with the goal of again insulting and destroying the United States by sending countless the increased population on barges in order to shred the waters adjacent to the territory of America, after which the most advanced ships and submarines of the United States will become useless rusty cans stuck in the dermis, and their planes and missiles will not be able to take off in the air thickened from the stench and gases, and here !!!!! ........ cranes come into play, symbolizing large birds of a long, almost prohibitively long flight, which means roaring cows, roaring because they fly at hyper sonic speeds, and these cows are covered with many kilometers of shit already the very territory of the United States, and this is all against the background of the Nautilus song "Goodbye America Oh ..." .... if you dear US analysts could see at least one dream on our president and try to analyze his symbolism, we would not have to spend so much on weapons and we would live a little richer, since you yourself would have died of fear. All this is an example of the fact that sometimes it makes no sense to look for him where he is not.

    Custom article. The author is a Republican, Stopudov.
    Here, even without reading between the lines vehemently, the stones fly not to Russia, but to the administration of the White House.
    Slowly preparing the ground for future elections, so relax, this is a "clan" showdown. Russia, as it was an enemy for the Americans, will remain so

    Teflon Putin: why the president needed a pike weighing 21 kg
    The essence of this strategy is visible in the schemes of political PR, personified self-promotion of power. Consider in this connection an episode with a pike recently caught in Tuva.
    Only the lazy did not get enough sleep on this plot, however, we will not be interested in details and “facts”, but in the scheme and principle, the attitude toward external perception. Oddly enough, the criteria for internal evaluation of the effectiveness of such information stuffing generally coincide ... with the criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of research, popular in our near-scientific officialdom. It seems that we are on the verge of discovering the fourth law of dialectics: the departure of quality into quantity — the triumph of formally quantifiable “effectiveness” over expert, qualitative assessment of the result.
    The latest video comparator means convincing that a fish product caught in Tuva for 20 kg looks exactly the same as its previously caught counterparts weighing 10-12 kilograms, from a force of 15. Further, it does not matter how much it actually was. Even if the fish swallowed heavy water and really weighs, as they said, in politics the collective judgment works first and foremost: the weight is unbelievably overstated.
    In politics, if they do not believe, it is better not to say even what happened. And vice versa.
    In addition, the plot was superimposed on all past fakes and is perceived as natural in their impressive series, from underwater finds to serial kisses of all kinds of fauna: defenseless children, euthanized tigers and bumped fishes (so the pike hangs only after a hammer hit on the forehead or a puncture with a special awl in brain, and she is not up to kisses).
    We will discard the everyday rivalry of the opposition and just skeptics (“not a single diver was hurt”) and pay attention to a strict conclusion: Russia is a country of fishermen, and such a fake provokes one reaction here - again ... then follows the vocabulary branded by deputy Mizulina. The stable opinion of professional experts (and there are no others in the fishing environment) is previously neglected for the sake of a momentary impression in an uninformed crowd. In other words, the press service consciously goes on to discredit itself and the client in a quality community for the sake of a quantitative effect in the hearts of the simple-minded.
    The self-satisfaction regime works here: if only we (ourselves) liked it. If a person wants to fly, dive and kiss, he will be shot in these poses, and will be accounted for by the number of references. This is already a principle embodied, for example, in a hymn which the State Duma composed and performs for itself: “To you, chosen people, Holy Russia beats with a brow”. It is in the spirit of Poirot, who did not suffer from low self-esteem, and therefore loved to express himself in the third person, but at least there were “gray cells” there.

    the author of the article should be awarded in the nomination "the most terrible horror story" .. the current horror story is pretty good for ordinary Americans, because all the worst is said, but for example they forgot to mention the number of their bases in the world, about the NATO bloc, etc.

    I'm wondering how it happened that everyone suddenly became fishermen, with manic envy? Well, I caught it, well, big, well, cool. Many media outlets talked about this. Okay. Calm down already! The purpose of the event was nothing more than an informational occasion for the sake of increasing the citation index of the "Putin" tags, and for ordinary people who were not at all fooled by politics, geopolitics and fish. I just can't understand those who are trying to find a deep meaning in all this? And if VVP suddenly puts on sunglasses ala Neo from the Matrix, will you look for a sacred meaning in this too? For normal people, it all sounds like paranoid attacks, schizophrenia, and other mental illnesses. Drink exlax if you have any problems with this part.
