Military Review

Comrade Putin wrote in the New York Times

207
September 11 under the heading "Opinion" of the newspaper "New York Times" Appeal to the American people ... no, not Barack Obama, not John Kerry, not James Clapper, or even Mikhail Gorbachev. The President of Russia addressed the Americans in the pages of one of their most popular newspapers. Vladimir Putin believes that Russian and American society is not communicating enough, and therefore he set out to clarify, through an influential newspaper, Russia's position on the Syrian issue in particular on issues of war and peace in general.


The president began with a reminder to the Americans that there was a cold war, but there was also joint opposition to the Nazis. It was established by the UN and it was established that decisions on issues of war and peace should be made only on the basis of consensus, as well as with the consent of the permanent members of the Security Council having veto power. In the future, this became the basis for the stability of international relations for decades.

Nobody wants, writes V. Putin further, that the United Nations befall the fate of the League of Nations. But such an outcome is possible - in the event that powerful countries bypass the United Nations and start military actions without the sanction of the Security Council.

A strike on Syria, according to the Russian president, will lead to innocent victims, the spread of the conflict beyond Syria, an increase in violence and a new wave of terrorism. The whole system of international law is staggering.

According to Putin, in accordance with applicable international law, the use of force is allowed only for self-defense or by decision of the UN Security Council. Everything else is unacceptable in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and, in essence, is an act of aggression. Therefore, the president writes, it is disturbing that for the United States it has become commonplace for military intervention in internal conflicts in foreign countries.

As for some strategic long-term interests of America in Syria, the Russian president expressed doubt about this. Millions of people around the world, he notes in the article, are increasingly seeing in the United States not a model of democracy, but a state that implements the principle of brute force under the slogan: "Either you are with us or against us."

But only that power turned out to be ineffective and meaningless. Examples of that V. Putin sees in Afghanistan and Iraq. The conclusion that the president makes: should “stop using the language of force and return to the path of a civilized politico-diplomatic settlement”.

As for Syria, it is now possible to avoid hostilities:

“The United States, Russia and all members of the international community should take advantage of the Syrian government’s willingness to place its chemical arsenals under international control for subsequent destruction. Judging by the statements of President Obama, the United States sees this as an alternative to military action. ”


The President continues:

“If we can avoid the use of force against Syria, it will improve the atmosphere in the field of international relations and strengthen mutual trust. This will be our common success and will open the doors for cooperation on other important issues. ”


Comrade Putin further points out that he “carefully studied” the appeal made by the American president to the nation on Tuesday. Vladimir Putin disagreed with some accents placed by Obama:

“It is very dangerous to encourage people to consider themselves exceptional, regardless of motivation. There are big countries and small, rich and poor, with long-standing democratic traditions and only looking for their own way to democracy. Their policies are different. We are all different, but when we ask the Lord for blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal. ”


Below are a few characteristic comments on Putin’s address to the New York Times.

Virgil Antonov, Lancaster:
"An exceptional, modest and intelligent call for peace with Syria, received from the president of one of the most powerful military powers to the president of another."


Dan, Toronto:
“I think Putin has found the right argument. And I agree with his condemnation of the concept of "American exclusivity."
And now let's see what answer Obama will print and post on the Internet in the national Russian media. That's when the world can truly see the "civilized political and diplomatic settlement" in action. "


Mile C., Dallas:
“Although I do not agree with many Russian politicians, I welcome Putin’s call for caution. “Limited Military Strike” - a euphemism for war, which should be the last resort ... ”


Brett E., Denver:
"It is very dangerous to encourage people to consider themselves exceptional, regardless of motivation." - This is the best that communism has to offer the world.
Mr. Putin, you can find everything you need to know about American exceptionalism by studying the presidency of Ronald Reagan. ”


Don Malloni, San Francisco:
“That which is so well founded is not necessarily sincere - that is the question. It may well be that the goal of Putin’s publication is to maximize Russia's current influence. Another goal is to apply the maximum possible pressure on our political class. We must take into account the tricks with which Russia will maintain a strategic advantage. The United States has made many mistakes, being the only superpower in the world, but can you imagine Russia in this role? ”


Alvin J. Martinez, San Juan:
“By continuing his confrontational policy, Mr. Obama recalls his belligerent predecessor and loses a high moral foundation in international relations compared to other leaders of the world community. Putin has become the voice of reason on the world stage, and he is supported by many influential people. If Mr. Obama continues to rely on military power, thereby imposing American decisions on others, I am afraid he will lose even more prestige and destroy the reputation of the United States that they once had in the world. He passes the baton of world leadership to Mr. Putin. Think America. ”

    Just what I said in the comments to the previous article.
    They agree with Putin and Russia. Let them not understand, they hate, but agree, and therefore the face of the country is changing, in the eyes of the West.
    And this is without the use of force, mind you ... I would like to believe that Putin has found an approach to the West and will now play on it.

    In an interesting time we live comrades.

            The Yankes, due to the stupidity and ignorance of their "political elite", strive to solve all world and personal problems by open confrontation and force.
            And what do they have from this? They themselves were so intimidated that their generals jump out of the windows with yells:
            - Russians are coming!
            Try to throw our general out the window. At least as much as: - Do the Yankees go? - in response you will hear only - And x ... with them, let them go.

        More precisely, he must be called a former comrade; he left the Communist Party, and on August 20, 1991, during a speech by A. A. Sobchak against the GKChP, Putin wrote a report on his dismissal from the KGB

            These are just common cliches.
            The KGB was abolished on December 3 of 1991, and all its employees were fired, so Putin would have dropped out of the KGB even without a report, automatically.
            The activities of the CPSU were terminated on November 6 of the 1991 of the year, also by the decree of Beni Reltsyn, so Putin did not need to leave the Communist Party.
            As for any normal person born in the USSR, Putin’s comrade’s appeal is acceptable more than a gentleman or something just as rotten.

Yes, even manage to go under the article for dubious commercial operations for many years;) A strange legend. When will it finally end? ;)

        Here, it seems to me, Putin expressed our common thought with you that the UN is a wedding organization that does not solve anything ... everything is correct, as they say: if you all gentlemen do not want to abide by your own rules, then why get together constantly so that then do each in their own way.

        In this sense, the new Security Council ala-UN could be gathered around the BRICS countries, and above all those countries that agree to abide by international rules and norms. And countries that consider themselves exceptional, or especially strongly democratic, should be cut off and not accepted into the new "UN".

          "Senator Robert Menendez (Democrat from New Jersey) told CNN that after reading the article, he" practically threw up. "

          The White House said that Putin is "isolated and alone" in his opinion that the rebels are to blame for the attack. "
          There is a strange feeling about the hidden grave ailments of the ruling America’s elite. As they say, everything is from sick nerves and manic rejection of the reality of the surrounding realities in the world. More like these articles can the whole senate go there for them to vomit lol

          The Ministry of Economic Development calculated: Ten percent of the income we spend on paying for utility bills. This is more than the Finns pay, whose climate is similar to ours

          Specialists of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia compared how Russians and Europeans pay for the communal apartment. And it turned out that in terms of utility costs we overtook many countries in Europe.

          If the Russian family spent 10% of consumer spending last year on paying for "communal", then the average European paid only 8% for gas, heating, water, etc. It is clear that residents do not have to spend much on communal Spain and Cyprus - in these countries in many houses there is not even central heating.

          But in terms of spending, Russia overtook even northern Sweden and Finland.

          By the way, such a large expenditure of Russians on housing and communal services is mainly paid by heating - it takes 34% of all payments, housing services - 19%, hot water (14%) and gas (13%).

          In general, the situation is outrageous. After all, both gas and oil are much more expensive for Europe than for us.

          Why, then, do Europeans spend less on a "communal apartment"? - When we talk about all Europeans, we must not forget that we give "average data for the hospital."

                I'm not ready to "give" anything. If you want to KNOW, then you must be in the subject.
                I report:
                Wholesale price in the "IES East" and wholesale export price for China alone - about 1,5 rubles per 1 kW / h. Pay attention to the highlighted in bold!
                As soon as it falls for Cupid, for example, in Haihe, it grows even at the border to 2,5 rubles per 1 kW / h.
                Sinking lower to the south, it grows to 4,5 rubles.
                At the same time, the same "lafa" works for the southern regions of China as we have in the Central region. The cost of 1 kilowatt / hour can cost 1,5 rubles for OUR money.
                Because of the PEACEFUL ATOM!laughing
                And the delivery of coal is VERY MUCH! Because it is still a determining factor in our economy. Ask the machine builders about this at "KnAAZ", "ASZ", "Dalenergomash", etc.
                Do you think that the triple price for electricity and for materials on the Far East is negligible?

    IES of the East "and the wholesale export price for China is one - about 1,5 rubles per 1 kW / hour. Pay attention to the bold one!

    Let it be 1,5 rubles, but they sell it to the population with a 100% margin, at 3 rubles each. This is what we are talking about: a mess, a scam. Allocated a site in the form of a sales company and cut the "cabbage". There is no state policy, in the same SHA it is forbidden to increase the cost. Because everyone suffers. From the flood area, people complained, near the Zeyskaya GRES, that the price for China was not disclosed, almost 60 kopecks each. Probably rumors.
    As for Komsolsk did not understand, and the NEA? They take e-energy from the thermal power station, does it work on coal? They didn’t transfer gas from Sakhalin there?
    Speaking of Haihe, it’s opposite Blagoveshchensk, if they sell 2,5 rubles there, how much does it cost in Blagoveshchensk?

    The world of capitalism is not only the first world but also the third, therefore, if it’s good somewhere in Sweden, then in Africa it’s not at all. Then we are entering the different phases of development of the capital structure in the West and in Russia, we are faced with the task of creating our own elite, including in a financial sense, otherwise Russian managers bought by the Western elite will manage us. Every poor president, manager will always think, what will happen after the presidency, where to escape from any Meslin, Khodorkovsky-Berezovsky.

      I bought infrared binoculars, and in winter, at dusk, I looked around the house from all angles, and immediately saw where the heat was leaking. In the summer he insulated the attic from the inside, blocked the floors, sheathed the walls with insulation. Bulbs bought in the FixPrice store for 37 rubles. couple, illuminate all secondary rooms. Well, Gazprom, which is a national property, will never see me in the lists of its consumers - a Russian oven.

    In an interesting time we live comrades.

    Comrade Putin, as a former communist who has become an avid capitalist, needs to read Marx and Lenin in order to understand once and for all that the financial and economic crisis is an inevitable state of capital economics that can only be resolved by military expansion of spheres of influence, ruining a competitor and gaining access to cheap raw materials .
    So appeals to the wolf to read more "God's word" and eat less raw meat are unlikely to convince a hungry wolf to eat hay, due to the lack of raw meat.

    Comrade Putin urgently needs to engage in self-education, deprivatization and strengthening of defense through "voluntary donations" from the oligarchy of all stripes.

In all the comments one can see their complete inferiority complex.

The domestic policy of many countries has absolutely no side to the security of the United States, but the latter say that there is a danger and it must be eliminated. Putin is good for taking the initiative of a peace agreement, and the Syrian president really liked it. And not only him. Most countries support him in this. This, I tell you, is very good. Finally, the influence of the Russian Federation in the world is growing!

      The New York Times is perhaps the most popular, high-quality newspaper in the United States, targeting an audience of decision-makers (entrepreneurs, businessmen, bankers, politicians). That is, it is not a mass publication for the entertainment of the general public.

Yes, and the increase in tariffs and the cost of energy sources lead to bad thoughts, we do not import them and do not carry them on tankers across the okyany seas. It would be useful to demonstrate success in domestic policy in addition to success in foreign policy.

        With Peter1, it’s like that is when the voice of Russia sounds weighty in world politics, but not everything is good inside, probably such a trend will remain for 200-300 years, and it’s a pity that Russia has everything for its citizens to live well in their own country.

    Hi guys ..
    You, frankly, are .... like French academics in an ivory tower.
    I will not hide the last foreign policy actions of our leadership to my liking.
    Replaying the West.
    Although, this is not even a middlegame. A protracted debut for decades.
    And Putin’s letter to the Americans is also a good move.
    ..
    BUT. BUT.
    ..
    Imagine. Comes to you at work (in the family, in the company ... pick up the right one) - your competitor. Sometimes an enemy. Sometimes - so-so, even a partner, at times.
    And begins to teach you how to live. How to cook soup for your wife. How to conduct coitus. Sometimes he says - you are doing everything wrong, because you are too ... thinking about yourself. But in reality - you are nobody, and there is no way to call you.
    And this is also taking into account our mentality.
    Russian.
    We are used to poking our faces in the mud. Therefore, such an appeal .. - we will not be offended. We can give it in the face if we get it. But in general - we will remain calm.
    Americans were brought up and are brought up not so.
    From childhood, they believe in their own personal exclusivity.
    They are used to the fact that the USA is the number 1 in the world. And, accordingly, they - too - are numbered uno.
    And here, the cunning, terrible, bloodthirsty communist, the secret KGB player, and the President of Russia - poke his nose, as they do - cool, businesslike, infallible ... shit.
    They just got used to the fact that all of Russia is in their banks. That all Russian husks are in Miami.
    And here - on you. They are wrong.
    Etc.
    Selection of quotes - does not convince. One there is clearly knocked out of the stream.
    Etc.
    Actually, what am I talking about.
    This letter warms our souls. Successes in foreign policy - like.
    And now - let's wait - for surprises.
    God forbid that I was mistaken.

      It is clear that the Baran has an unambiguous task. Syria. But this task is becoming more and more difficult. At the time of "making a decision" he stood in the position - "oh, I have something in my diaper." At this point, the strategic initiative was intercepted. Diverse and unpredictable attacks do not allow the mess to prepare public opinion, create the slightest bit of "legitimacy"

      Only .., the Russian people over the past 100 years, has come a long way from imperial Russian consciousness to the socialist. From him to the individually democratic. And from the extreme, again to the roots, IMHO. To the Russian-imperial consciousness. Here is a cycle for some 100 years.

    If I’m not mistaken, then no one has done so, in fact, with what fright does the president of another country turn to strangers? Unexpectedly, incomprehensibly, we can conclude that talking with the official side is useless, and why the US? It turns out that in Europe there is no longer a people that can be addressed, Europe has died.
    In fact, we live in an interesting time, a protectorate of Russia in the USA? That sounds good.

    Well yes! Especially after yesterday's press conference on Syria, which resembled a miniature from the life of students, in the style of Khazanov, where the professor (Lavrov - standing like a Kremlin wall) is trying to understand the student's response (Kerry - who is zhisticating and seeking support in the audience). The student, answering the question "About the technology of pipe production", tells that the pipe serves to ensure that water flows into one end and flows out from the other end. Fortunately, the professor has the right to stop the student's delirium in time, which we saw in the performance of Lavrov.

Another goal is to apply the maximum possible pressure on our political class. We must take into account the tricks with which Russia will maintain a strategic advantage. The United States has made many mistakes, being the only superpower in the world, but can you imagine Russia in this role? ”

    Vladimir Putin believes that Russian and American society are not communicating well enough, and therefore he undertook to clarify through Russia's influential newspaper the position of Russia - on the Syrian issue in particular and on issues of war and peace in general.


    All this is good, and the article is good, and on time. But will she come to the mind of an average amer? It is painful that they all either know nothing or do not want to know, but the feeling is created that they (the mericatos) live somewhere on the far side of the moon.

    Nobody wants, writes V. Putin further, that the United Nations befall the fate of the League of Nations. But such an outcome is possible - in the event that powerful countries bypass the United Nations and start military actions without the sanction of the Security Council.

    Do not forget that the credibility of the UN, like all international law, rests only on a balance of power. The USA, after the collapse of the USSR, is the most powerful military force. Therefore, they can afford not to look back on the law. This article by Putin is certainly the right move, but chatter is not enough. And Putin's finance minister is demanding a reduction in military spending. At that time !!! Now, on the contrary, we need to look for opportunities to strengthen the Armed Forces! And the strengthening of our Army will strengthen international law, the authority of the UN, and world peace.
