The genesis of the Syrian crisis and eternal war U.S.



During the Great Depression, 32 President of the United States and one of the most prominent statesmen of the first half of the twentieth century, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, said: "One of my main tasks is to protect bankers and businessmen from suicide." This touching concern turned into the greatest tragedy of all mankind - the Second World War, the main instigators of which were American industrialists and financiers.

In that war, more than 54 million people died, 90 million was injured, 28 million of the total number of injured became disabled.

The Second World War solved many problems of the American establishment, but not all: the Soviet Union not only survived, but turned into a superpower. The main task that FD set for himself. Roosevelt, was resolved with over-fulfillment - the United States turned into a global financial center. In July, in the small town of Bretton Woods, 1944 at the international conference of winners laid the foundation for such institutions as the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD, from 1960 - the World Bank) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). At the same time, the US dollar was declared a type of world money, along with gold. By that time, the US controlled 70% of the world's gold reserves. In the United States itself, by the end of the war, there was 129 billion dollars (a colossal sum, and for today!) Liquid savings.

This money, "earned" by American bankers and industrialists on the sufferings and deaths of millions of people, gave a powerful incentive to the production of consumer goods and capital construction. Not to mention the international status that the United States received. Even Rusobof and the ideological enemy of our country Z. Brzezinski admitted: “Paradoxically, the defeat of Nazi Germany raised America’s international status, although it did not play a decisive role in the military victory over Hitlerism. The merit of this victory should be recognized for the Stalinist Soviet Union. " One way or another, but the foundation of modern hegemonism of America was laid precisely in the last world war.

The results of the great and terrible war formed among those who rule America in fact, the only model of behavior: the solution of their own problems should always be achieved at the expense of other countries and peoples. Throughout the post-war period, the United States resorted to aggression whenever they either had economic problems or needed to divert attention from unpopular economic measures within the country.

So, the Korean War was a reaction to the first post-war recession of the year 1949. The invasion of Lebanon followed the decline of 1957-1958. The aggression against Vietnam was a reaction to the economic downturn of 1967, and the "launch" by Carter of the second round of the Cold War - to the downturn of 1979. Fall of 1981-1982 not only Reagan's “military Keynesianism”, but also the American “approach” to Nicaragua and Grenada. I'm not even talking about such large-scale US / NATO interventions in the twenty-first century as Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya.

Many American scientists and writers also pay attention to the aggressive nature of US foreign policy as a reaction to internal problems. Thus, the largest historian of the first half of the twentieth century, one of the founders of the economic direction in US historiography, the author of the 4-heavy work “Formation of American Civilization” Charles Austin Beard (1874-1948) believed that after the victory over Japan in 1945, The United States is "eternal war for eternal peace."

Based on the developments Ch.O. Birda, the famous American liberal writer Gore Vidal, in his work 2002 of the Year, Why We Are Hated, put tables of military and other operations conducted by the Americans before 2001 of the year on several pages. At the same time, “the author out of compassion (to the readers. - EP) did not list the military operations that the CIA carried out in different countries, for example, in Guatemala (1953), or in Iran (1953), when Mossadegh was dropped, or Chile, when Allende was dropped, etc. " And most importantly, Gore Vidal emphasized that “in these several hundreds of wars against communism, terrorism, drugs, and sometimes even unknown at all against what happened between the events in Pearl Harbor and“ black Tuesday ”11 of September 2001, we (America. - EP) tried to strike first. But we are good guys, aren't we? (italics mine - E.P.) ”.

In turn, Ziauddin Sardar and Merrill Win Davis in the book “Why do people hate America” in the period from 1890 (US military action in Argentina) to 2001 (beginning operations in Afghanistan) counted 124 American interventions in various parts of the globe . Moreover, as the authors point out, a special place in the interventionist policy of the United States has always been occupied by provocations. Examples? You are welcome.

In 1898, an explosion of the American ship "Men" was organized - the Spaniards were accused. As a result, the United States began a war with Spain.

7 in May 1915 of the United States was substituted for the German submarines "Lusitania". The liner with a shaded name and without a flag of any country purposefully entered the zone designated by the German government as the “zone of underwater war”. Under wartime conditions, the Lusitania was torpedoed by a German submarine and sank. Killed 1198 people from 1959 ex aboard. This incident was used for informational pressure on the public opinion of many countries that have dramatically changed their attitude towards Germany.

In 1941, Roosevelt was well aware of the impending strike on Pearl Harbor, but did nothing as needed an excuse for going to war.

In 1964, there have been so-called Tonkin incident which has given rise to the top of the Vietnam War.

The explosion of the Twin Towers in September 11 2001 he became a pretext for military intervention in Afghanistan.

The mythical nuclear program was the reason for the destruction of Iraq. A nuclear provocative cause has long been hanging over Iran and North Korea. And now the chemical weapon in Syria.

***

Another American scientist, Honored Professor, gave a terrible description of US foreign policy stories Princeton University Arnaud J. Meyer. He could not publish his article “Untimely Thoughts” on the events of 9 / 11 in the USA - “the most democratic country in the world”. We managed to do this in the French newspaper Le Monde. I quote:

“In recent times, until recent events, acts of individual terror were considered weapons of the weak and poor, while acts of state and economic terror were weapons of the strong. In both types of terror, it is important to distinguish between object and victim. This distinction is crystal clear in the event of a blow to the International Trade Center: the object is the brightest symbol and focus of global corporate and economic power, the victims were the unfortunate, mostly ordinary employees. Another thing is the Pentagon: there is concentrated the highest military command ... of capitalist globalization, causing, in the Pentagon language, “collateral” damage to human life.

One way or another, after 1947, America has become the main criminal pioneer, guilty of "pre-emptive" state terrorism, first of all in relation to the third world countries, and therefore, as a rule, ignored. In addition to the constant subversive activities and the overthrow of governments in rivalry with the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Washington resorted to political assassinations, creating surrogates for death squads and detachments of so-called freedom fighters (such as bin Laden). He organized the assassination of Lumumba and Allende and tried to carry out the assassination of Castro, Gaddafi and Hussein, put a veto on any attempts to curb not only Israel’s violations of international agreements and UN resolutions, but also its policy of "preemptive" state terror (my curse. - E. P.)".

The genesis of the Syrian crisis is set by the very nature of US hegemony. But why in Washington were aiming at the "final solution" of the Syrian question right now? Why turned to the proven scheme - provocations? And why did they prepare her so badly: the staged nature of video frames, slipped to the world as “evidence” of a chemical attack allegedly carried out by the Syrian army, became apparent almost the next day ?!

Officially, the fact of the provocation was confirmed on September 9 at the briefing "Human Rights and Armed Conflicts: US Threats to Use Force against Syria and International Law" during the 24 session of the UN Human Rights Council. As noted in the message for the media following the meeting, “convincing evidence was provided that the videos and photos of the victims of Himataki in the 21 suburb of Damascus in August were fabricated in advance. The audience was shown the testimony of numerous witnesses who unanimously claimed that the chemical weapons in the area of ​​Eastern Guta were used precisely by the militants. The results of the investigations carried out by the activists of the incident and the testimony of eyewitnesses were transferred to the Independent Commission of Inquiry in Syria. "

However, why the U.S. withdrew? It's not in the rules of the global leader and the UN has long been America can not decree.

As already mentioned, the United States used to solve their problems at the expense of international brigandage. It is here rooted crisis in Syria and the reasons for its escalation.

First, at present, the US economy is approaching a “fiscal cliff”. Under such conditions, the promises made by Obama during the election campaign — tax cuts, wage increases, and legalization of migrants — cannot be fulfilled in principle. The country has a stalemate political situation, accompanied by a decline in the popularity of Obama and his team. Exit advisers and analysts from the White House is seen in the "little victorious war." A more convenient place for such a war than an exhausted and devastated Syria is hard to come up with. But the solution of domestic economic problems due to military intervention is the “good” tradition of the Anglo-Saxons.

Secondly, the forces behind Obama actively support and implement the project of “controlled chaos” from Mauritania to Kyrgyzstan and Kashmir. “The arc of instability,” starting in the Balkans, should, by their logic, reach Russia and China.

However, on this path of global destabilization a “problem” has formed - Syria. Moreover, Damascus is an ally of three major powers at the same time - Russia, China and Iran. For Russia, Syrians are not only allies, but also friends, as Vladimir Putin emphasized.

As for the "chaos", it is needed for very specific purposes. One of them is the transit of hydrocarbons. And here again the Russian factor arises. I believe that the escalation of the Syrian crisis should be viewed as a direct reaction to the intensification of the Russian energy policy. The fact is that 13 August during the visit of the President of the Russian Federation V.V. In Baku, serious agreements were reached on oil transit: relevant agreements were signed between the Russian state-owned company Rosneft and Azerbaijani partners; New directions and forms of cooperation in the fuel and energy sector have been identified. Moreover, the signed agreements have a long-term character - “the prospect of years on 15, maybe 20, that is, a good basis is laid for cooperation for many, many years to come.” Following the meeting, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stressed that “I think that very much will depend on the active interaction, coordination of our efforts within the framework of regional energy issues. We are committed to decisive cooperation, to strengthening cooperation with Russia in this important direction of economic and political development. ” The dry residue of this meeting was the creation of the Russia-Azerbaijan oil bond, i.e. of exactly what he was so afraid of and what the West had been working against for many years.

The genesis of the Syrian crisis was initially, in general, largely determined by the problem of transit of energy resources. As it is known, gas deposits were discovered in the Southern Mediterranean - both on the sea shelf and on the territory of Syria (Kara). In the Syrian crisis, there is another “gas” factor: if the Assad regime is overthrown, Qatar, exporting liquefied natural gas, will be able to transport “blue fuel” directly from the Mediterranean coast through Syria. This will at least double the volume of its exports and at the same time complicate Iranian exports. The strengthening of Qatar in the gas market automatically leads to a deterioration in the position of Russian companies. And if we add control over Algerian gas (which Americans are also actively working on), then this is fraught with a blockade of Russia's entire oil and gas exports.

Speaking about the oil and gas wars in the Middle East, do not forget about the kind of struggle that is taking place around South Stream. But this is a topic for another conversation.

There are other reasons for the escalation of the Syrian crisis and the aggressive position of Washington. For example, the desire to break the bond Tehran - Damascus - Hezbollah, which creates problems for the United States and Israel. However, the demonstration of Russia and all the rest remains the most important in the attempts of the “final solution” of the Syrian issue: the world will be as decided by the United States and the supranational structures of global governance behind them.

And now is the time to recall the words of Stalin, who loved to repeat: “There is a logic of intentions, and there is a logic of circumstances. And the logic of circumstances is stronger than the logic of intentions. ” So, provocateurs and arsonists did not take into account the logic of circumstances. They did not take into account that Russia has changed, and the world has changed. The unipolar system no longer exists, and shouts from Washington in Moscow are no longer as they were twenty years ago.

At the same time, we recognize that the Syrian crisis is still far from being resolved. It is only slightly frostbitten. Ahead - intense and exhausting diplomatic battles.

        The collapse of the American dollar is inevitable. And without a dollar (as a world currency) America means little, at least not at all what it is now.
        Even in the event of an attack on Syria, the collapse will not only move forward for a long time (in principle, what they are seeking).
        Attempts to gain world domination, which American industrialists and bankers want to achieve, which can be counted on the fingers 1 and 2. (Obama and the American people do not count, these are pawns performers) fails. Recent US wars have shown that not everything is going as they wanted, after their aggression it was nowhere to establish loyal governments that would control the situation in a particular country. A theory of controlled chaos. that's bullshit. That's why he and Chaos, that no one ever knows what will happen tomorrow, and how side where it comes out. And for the sake of this, it was hardly worth breaking down skyscrapers at home.

      Of course banter, and famously done! It just seems to me that the Americans, with the head part hypertrophied and defective for mental activity, will not understand the banter and take everything at face value and will run to transfer dollars to the White House and the Pentagon during World War 3, the vast majority of Americans will settle in my head only "THIS WANTS OBAMA" .... sad indeed .....

    Why did they turn to the proven scheme - provocations? And why was it prepared so poorly: the staging nature of the video footage slipped to the world as “evidence” of a chemical attack allegedly carried out by the Syrian army became apparent almost the next day ?!

    In 1898, in order to start a war with Spain, after which they took the Philippines and Cuba from it, the Americans blew up their own battleship "Maine" in a Panama raid. In 1941, there was Pearl Harbor. At the beginning of the 60's - the famous incident in the Gulf of Tonkin. To get into Vietnam, the Americans blew up their own cruiser. This is the norm for them, so they are arranged. To get into Iraq and Afghanistan, the twin towers blew up. Provocation is the style of Amers.

      Actually Havanabut that’s not the point. During the explosion, almost the entire crew of the cruiser (260 people) was killed, except for the officers.
      This is how Russian military intelligence officer Colonel Zhilinsky, who was in Cuba at the headquarters of the Spanish troops during the Spanish-American war, described this event: “At the end of January 1898 the American cruiser Mayne arrived in Havana. The sending of the cruiser was from the US government a gesture defiant and demonstrative. 15 February 1898 cruiser died from an explosion in unknown circumstances. The explosion occurred in the evening when the team was assembled and people were already sleeping. The whole team was killed, except for the officers, who, by a lucky chance for them, were absent. The Americans, of course, immediately attributed this explosion to a Spanish mine. But specialist seamen argue that such an explosion could not have come from a mine, but occurred inside the ship. When a mine exploded, a hole had to be formed in the underwater part, but in fact the cruiser was torn in two. ” (“The Spanish-American War. Report of the General Staff of Colonel Zhilinsky sent by the highest command to the Spanish troops on the island of Cuba.” - St. Petersburg, 1899; E. E, Yurovskaya. “Workshop on the new history of 1870-1914 years.” - M .: Higher school, 1979. - p. 259)
      Since the complete absence of officers on the American cruiser in the evening and at night did not cause Colonel Zhilinsky not only suspicion, but even surprise, this means that at that time the American fleet was the only fleet of major powers whose ships completely abandoned officers with the onset of evening and left to their own devices.

      Where did you get this?
      "In 1964, the US Navy conducted Operation De Soto off the coast of North Vietnam. As part of this operation, the destroyer Maddox carried out radio reconnaissance. In the afternoon of August 2 of 1964, Maddox discovered three approaching North Vietnamese torpedo boats. The captain of Maddox ordered the warning artillery to be fired. In response to this, the boats fired on the destroyer from heavy machine guns and launched torpedo launches. An American squad entered the ensuing sea battle F-8 Cruzader fighters performing training flight near their Ticonderoga aircraft carrier, also located in the bay. The boats were damaged and stopped the attack, heading for their base. Maddox received orders to continue on with his mission. destroyer “Turner Joy.” - These are, in general terms, the essence of the Tonkin incident, as the events of August 4 are denied by both sides.

    Do not like articles in which they mix truth and falsehood. "Lusitania" was not substituted by the American government for the simple reason that it was a British ship. Moreover, it was entered in the register of military courts, in accordance with which masking measures were carried out. Moreover, the Lusitania carried a military load. Moreover, the ship's captain received the necessary warnings about the activity of German submarines and took a number of measures, including changing the course. Moreover, the death of 128 Americans was entirely on their conscience, since the German embassy in the USA warned American citizens about the danger by publishing a warning in 50 (!) US newspapers, including the largest. German opponents used the fact of the sinking of "Lusitania" - yes. But not organized.

        It seems to me that Azerbaijan is trying to conduct an independent policy to the best of its ability, while respecting its interests. The personal relationships of leaders decide a lot. The bleeding problem is Nagorno-Karabakh. The interests of Azerbaijan and Armenia are intertwined here. Armenia is our ally, a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, its air defense is included in the Common Air Defense System of the CIS, and our 102 military base is located in Gyumri. Recently, it became part of the customs union. Therefore, a possible scenario of provocations is an aggravation of the Karabakh problem in order to turn Azerbaijan away from Russia.

    There is a good historical example. In the memorable 1812, the US government decided to help the fraternal Canadian people get rid of the yoke of the British, who were (surprise-surprise!) Distracted by the war with Napoleon. And they got the consent of the Congress, and weapons were found, and even an alliance was concluded with the Indians ... Only now, the Canadians themselves forgot to ask about their desire to be happy.
    It all ended rather sadly for the aggressors themselves - the troops of the English General Ross disturbed the hero city of Washington, simultaneously putting the White House on fire. The story is old and seems to be out of place ... but the American tradition to precede forceful actions with a chatter about democracy, the desire to protect the orphaned and the wretched, as well as provocations, went from those times.

    After the Second World War, the Americans had a unique chance to become the dominant world power, they used this chance, they can’t be blamed for it, the USSR also had such a chance, he successfully failed, and the formidable tank divisions won not with weapons, but with a piece of sausage and Radio Liberty , now that we have enough sausages and “freedom”, Russian (former Soviet) people are surprised, but they don’t reckon with us and why the United States acts so brazenly, so there are no longer any tools to confront the Americans, it’s very much like “insight” Carthage and when they would just give up the Romans, they gave them all their weapons, flooded the fleet and surrendered to Hannibal, and when Scipio demanded "to clear the city for its subsequent destruction" the Carthaginians suddenly regained their sight and were horrified by what they themselves had done. So the Americans may ask with mockery with us, “Russians, where is your army? where is the Warsaw Pact? where are your arguments? not the nonsense that Lavrov or Putin is talking about some values, put them in one place, but real weighty organizations?”, but they don’t, Do you seriously think that the C300 will stop the Americans? Yes C dence teeming with American informers, who immediately determine their location and the Americans will destroy them, and then what? In short, all these our verbiage is not afraid of the Americans, they are likely to hover because they do not know what they want.

      Dirty Russophobic slander.
      The USSR had no chance of establishing dominance in the world. The Soviet people defended their country from the invasion of wild European hordes and suffered enormous economic and human losses, and did not sit out overseas in order to then steal someone else's victory.
      The USSR was rebuilding its country, and the Yankees, who had no casualties, robbed and subjugated Europe and Asia, creating military bases there.
      If the USSR and the Russian Federation did not have the strength to resist the Yankees, these corpse-eaters would have attacked us long ago.

      They just know what they want. From the side, of course, it looks strange - at first the Afghan Mujahideen are declared to be "fighters for freedom and democratic values" when they are fighting against the Shuravi. Then the same Mujahideen who made up the backbone of the Taliban and al-Qaeda are declared universal evil and anathematized. Now again a zigzag — when they are on the side of the Syrian opposition smoothly turning into “freedom fighters, a second improved edition.” Here, of course, it will not be easy for a simple John from the Oklahoma region to try to understand something ... either the schizophrenia of the authorities or, in general, the brain must be turned off.
      But everything is simple. The US government masterfully owns the Anglo-Saxon political style. And his quintessence is the testament of the English Prime Minister Pitt Sr.: "England has no constant enemies and no constant friends. There are only constant interests."

      Carter wouldn’t have enough brains for such a tricky move. But he achieved it purely cdypy. To give lectures on human rights instead of discussing matters, anyone will take offense at this. Even Brezhnev, even though he was in senility, realized that his brains were trying to **, and if he himself didn’t understand, there was someone to explain.


      No need to stick out your ignorance and lie, you know, keep silent.
      Brezhnev was not marasmus, although he had flaws in speech, but he thought better than any Yankees president, and in comparison with people like Bush Jr., he is simply a genius. And Carter actually made impudent statements that did not contribute to world peace.
      On January 23 of January 1980, Jimmy Carter delivered the annual message “On the Situation of the Country,” in which he announced a new foreign policy doctrine. The Gulf region was declared a zone of US interests, for the protection of which the United States is ready to go to the use of armed force. In accordance with the Carter Doctrine, attempts by any power to establish its control over the Persian Gulf region were announced in advance by the American leadership as an encroachment on important US interests

      With Lusitania, of course, the matter is dark, all the evidence is at the bottom, but it is quite realistic that this was a deliberate planned provocation.

          The most ordinary Japanese occupiers and collaborators included in the government of Lee Seung Man appointed by the Yankees.
          7 September 1945 year, General MacArthur declared John Hodge US military representative in Korea, the next day, Hodge troops landed in Incheon. The “Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea” sent a delegation with three translators to meet them, but the delegation was not accepted.
          The government, unlike Japan, passed into the hands of the military. In the administrative system of the country, with the advent of the Americans, little has changed - officials who worked during the Japanese occupation remained in their posts.

    By and large, the world gendarme (USA) without an adversary-revolutionary (USSR) turned into an ordinary werewolf in uniform. Which, well, is very pissed off at the thought that the revolutionary will reappear. Not because he’s afraid of him, but because he’s used to messing around. The revolutionary was at least ideological, but the gendarme simply turned out to be a venal “epaulet” (payment by the monarchies of the Gulf for an operation against Syria). And this gendarme has no choice but to nightmare everyone around him, because if he stops, then the passers-by will pump him and go to the reviving revolutionary (Russia). But the gendarme, by its bone, does not understand that a nightmare is not a nightmare, but the time has come to collect stones (for an adequate world) and hammer on a helmet of a gendarme with hangers-on (for an inappropriate world). And Glory to the Creator that there are less and less supporters. No need to find out who is right on our planet, We ALL know who on this planet is definitely superfluous. Mutants among people do not belong. Forgive me Americans, but the state in which you all live is just a cancerous tumor. {Phew tired of writing, but laid it out}.

    In turn, Ziauddin Sardar and Merill Vin Davis in the book Why People Hate America between 1890 (US military action in Argentina) and 2001 (beginning of the operation in Afghanistan) counted 124 American interventions in various parts of the world .

    Not a big background that happened before the 1898 year ...

    Philadelphia, PA Autumn 1775 Year. The Second Continental Congress, which was meeting in this city at a time when the foundations of the American state had just been laid, made a startling decision. Representatives of thirteen North American colonies, deposited from the British crown, decided to begin a military expedition to Canada, whose inhabitants did not want to voluntarily become the fourteenth rebellious colony and had the courage to openly ignore the calls of their southern neighbors. A huge expeditionary force — 9 thousand people — was sent to conquer Canada. Two columns of American troops under the command of General Schuyler and Colonel Arnold were to capture Montreal and Quebec. The invasion of Canada was the first undeclared US war.
    The expedition to the north brought the invaders neither military laurels, nor political dividends. Heavy losses, lack of ammunition and food, undisguised hostility of the population forced the US troops to retire. In the summer of 1776, the Canadian campaign ended in a humiliating defeat.

      Further more,
      In 1801, a group of American adventurers led by Philip Nolon invaded the northern regions of the Viceroyalty of New Spain (Mexico). The condottiers, of course, proclaimed themselves "liberators."

      In 1806, American troops under the command of Captain Pike infiltrated Mexico near the headwaters of the Rio Grande River, intending to annex new territories to the United States, but were rebuffed.

      In 1812 — 1813, the United States captured West Florida. Naturally, under the slogans of "liberation" of this territory.

      In 1817 — 1819, under the guise of similar slogans, the territory of East Florida was seized.

      In 1831, North American ships carried out a blockade of the coast of Argentina.

      In 1833, under the pretext of “protecting US interests” in Argentina, American troops landed in Buenos Aires and stayed there for two weeks.

      In 1835, under the same pretext of “protecting US interests” in Peru, US Marines occupied areas in the provinces of Lima and Callao.

      In 1845, the United States annexed Mexican territory - Texas.

      In 1847, US marines occupied the port of San Juan del Norte in Nicaragua.

      In 1848, American aggression against Mexico led to the signing by the government of this country of a humiliating treaty, according to which more than half of its territory was taken from Mexico.

      In 1852, the Marines again landed in Buenos Aires to “protect US interests” in Argentina.

      In 1855, a US naval ship threatened Paraguay, trying to force the government of this country to open rivers for "free shipping."

      In the same year, American troops landed in Uruguay to "protect American interests."

      In 1856, with the support of US Ambassador John Wheeler, the adventurer William Walker declared himself President of Nicaragua; Washington immediately recognized the new "president" and provided him with a loan. On September 22, Walker restored slavery as the first measures of his government and declared English the official language of Nicaragua.

      In 1859, US warships blocked Paraguay.

      In 1865, under the false pretext of “protecting the property and life of American citizens” living in Colombia, American troops occupied part of the territory of this country.

      In 1866, US forces invaded Mexico and provoked border clashes with the Mexican armed forces. The United States illegally captured the area of ​​El Chamisal.

      In 1873, the Americans landed on the Isthmus of Panama to - for the umpteenth time! “Defend US interests that are in jeopardy.”

      In 1885, American troops landed in Panama again to “protect US interests” and restore duty-free transportation of American goods through the railroad in the area.

      In 1891, US ships carried out a blockade of the coast of Haiti, trying to force the government of this country to cede the Gulf of Mol-Saint-Nicola.

      In the same goal, US marines invaded Chile.

      In 1894 - 1896, the United States landed amphibious assault forces in Chile.

      In 1898, under the pretext of “assisting” the Cuban people, US forces intervened in the Spanish-Cuban war, occupied Cuba and captured Puerto Rico

    How tired I am of discussing these "world peacekeepers." Maybe they should remind a story that they obviously forgot or were not taught: ------ The presence of Russian warships restrained the southerners' fleet from active operations in their presence.

    For nine months, the ships of Russian squadrons visited many American ports, cruised in the waters of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, visited Cuba and Honduras, Jamaica and Bermuda, Honolulu and Sitka.

    The public opinion of the northern states welcomed the presence of Russian warships in their ports.

    Immediately after the arrival of S. S. Lesovsky in New York, Russian sailors were surrounded by emphasized attention from Secretary of State W. Seward and Minister of the Sea G. Wells. Not only cabinet members visited the Russian ships, but also the leaders of the US Congress, senators, members of the House of Representatives and their families (more than 500 people).

    The headlines of American newspapers of that period read: “The new alliance is sealed. Russia and the United States fraternize ”,“ Russian Cross weaves its folds with stars and stripes ”,“ Enthusiastic popular demonstration ”,“ Big parade on Fifth Street ”.

    On the other hand, the London Times on October 2, 1863 wrote about the attitude of New Yorkers towards the Russian squadron that arrived:

    -In the book "1984" someone George Orwell wrote about the following: The ability of some sections of society to manage others is based on inequality of property. In an economically developed and prosperous society, property inequality tends to strive for zero. Thus reducing the ability to control. Among the ways to maintain the status quo, Orwell calls this: the State is constantly at war, no matter who. Martial law makes it possible to explain all kinds of restrictions on the growth of the well-being of the bulk of the population, exploit patriotic sentiments, and fight against “internal enemies”. In this case, any attempts to criticize or change power are equated with defeatism and betrayal, and ... hello, gas chamber (well or a firing squad!) Didn’t it happen ...

    Something tells me that the Americans have lurked and are thinking of a new peace like: "A missile was fired from the territory of Syria to the location of our strike group in the Mediterranean, etc." You experts understand who launched it there (mercenaries, territorialists, the opposition acting Syrian army), and we will take immediate adequate measures to pacify the "aggressor." But then. And now I think that a halt in their active actions is connected with a real assessment of possible losses during air strikes, i.e. the initial underestimation of the capabilities of Syria’s air defense that opened up to them at the last moment, and this takes time to review the strategy for the operation. So do not flatter yourself gentlemen, OBAMA did not grow wiser.
    If you are lucky and there will be a cool provocation, then you can connect the UK and France. (Better to eat cake in chorus than slurp shit alone .....)

    Here is a pre-revolutionary picture-caricature from the British magazine Puck, reflecting the then correct relations of good Russian people with Europe. Note that there is no threat in the Soviet-Putin spirit (“We will declare the Third World War, our MIGs will sit in Riga!”), Everything is exclusively voluntary and with a song. And a dance.

    More than a hundred years of this picture (1897), more than a hundred years of the degradation of Russian geopolitics, today's symbol and logical conclusion of which is the article of the elderly “schukolov-liberals will not pass” in the main liberal US newspaper - The New York Times. A little over a hundred years have passed, and the output is Stability. Sovereignty. Spirituality. Getting up from your knees. An application for the Nobel Prize ... and Putin, as a newspaper columnist (!!!) in wretched Soviet English, begging Obama not to bomb Assad. Against the backdrop of the current disgrace, the paratroopers in Pristina, driving away an English helicopter from the commando with an armored personnel carrier, are remembered as a strange alien dream.

    Girls guys, but not tired of barking at America? America, as expected of a normal state, acts exclusively in its own interests. Maybe enough to "save the world" and "we are for all good versus all bad"? Maybe we will be like America, at least a little? .. Let's think about ourselves and act for our own sake.

      Stupid reasoning of the round ignoramus and the enemy of Russia.
      Russia has always dominated dominates and will dominate in Europe and Asia simply because of its geographical position and real political, military and economic power.
      No matter how much the Yankees push, they will inevitably have to get out of Europe and Asia, where they climbed only because of the World War and thanks to the victory of the USSR and the union with the USSR.
      Putin did not beg Obama, but really outlined his stupidity and savage ignorance in geopolitics and international law, which only savages do not recognize.
      It’s high time the Yankees dead-eaters realized that the time of the “gunboat policy” has passed and if they violate international rights, it will inevitably turn against them, for every cunning Yusov’s ass there is a “geopolitical tool” without laws.
      English language Putin needs as a fish an umbrella, he is not a translator, but the president. I doubt that Barak knows and can correctly pronounce at least one Russian word.

    Russia to the Yusovites is now not a goal, but rather an obstacle to the goal, but the goal of China. I will explain. The Yusovites are weighing a big war to write off their external debt (which is why they are so abundantly developing new weapons systems). The Chinese, who own the largest chunk of this debt, laid down 2 + 2, and began frantically arming and modernizing the army (it comes to such moments that they commission new ships, almost without full-scale testing of new systems). The second largest debt holders - the Saudis (knowing that they would recall the Wahhabis and Bin Laden on occasion) also began to crawl sideways into the shadows and arm themselves (new tanks and planes in large numbers), as well as flirt with Moscow. And on the other hand - the last flirting of the Yusovites with the oil-bearing Iran to which they owe nothing, a sign that they are looking for a "clean sheet". They have already prepared Libya and Iraq (countries are weakened and in chaos), during the war they will be able to freely enter and use oil. With Assad, an even more subtle game, he was weakened by frightening and “forgiven,” at hour X he would simply be tied to the wall and forced to choose the side, and not the fact that he would not choose the Yusovtsy, especially if the Iranian card played. The role of Russia in this scenario is an outside observer, and ideally an ally of the Yusovites if it succeeds in pushing its foreheads with China. Missile defense in Europe is being built against China, knowingly knowing that it will not stop the Russian arsenal. The US war against Russia in this whole game is needed last. I repeat, the ideal scenario for them is "Russia Ally." Since together they will tear China and its allies to shreds without unnecessary losses, China will be geographically between a rock and a hard place.
    The most interesting thing - I suspect that this scenario is known in the Kremlin. Too early in time, Putin bailed out Obama in the episode with Syria and turned the gates from Saudi’s unprecedented generosity. Add another desire to reconcile Iran with the West ... suggestive, it is worthwhile to calculate the benefits of Russia from participating in such a redivision of the world. One worth removing OPEC from the oil rudder is worth it, and the prospect of turning China into the most powerful superpower on the planet of Russian analysts is no more pleasing than US analysts, they are all familiar with the model of the Cold War model - everything is familiar and predictable there.
