NATO Secretary General: Russia should not be afraid of the West, but of the South

Russia should be wary of attacks not from the West, but from the South, said the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, at the 59-th annual session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Dubrovnik (Croatia).


“We have made serious progress in relations with Russia in terms of practical cooperation. This concerns the provision of transit corridors for the operation of the forces of the North Atlantic Alliance in Afghanistan, anti-terrorism activities and the fight against piracy, ”Rasmussen said.

“As for missile defense, we still have different views on this question, but I hope that we will reach a compromise,” he added, ITAR-TASS reports.

“Frankly speaking, if Russia feels threatened, then it should fear not the West, but the South. I think Russia would benefit from constructive cooperation with the EU and NATO, ”said the Secretary General.

Russia actively insists on the provision of legal guarantees of non-directionality against it of the European missile defense program, while the United States is limited only by verbal assurances. The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, believes that disagreements on missile defense prevent the construction of a single Euro-Atlantic security space.

We will remind, earlier it became known that NATO exercises “Steadfast Jazz 2013” will be held in the territory of Latvia and Poland. The purpose of the exercise is to work out the "5 article" of the Washington Treaty, which provides for the use of military force to protect the ally of NATO. About 6 thousands of troops from NATO and partner countries will take part in the exercise.

In July, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that the “Steadfast Jazz 2013” scenario “breathes the spirit of the Cold War”.

        it is necessary to carry out new exercises together with Belarus, say Zapod 2, and attract personnel say 15-20 thousand, while declaring that the exercises are planned, they are just working on a possible threat from the Zapoda. as the wedge says, it will cool them.

And what about the south and east ??? Well, with China, we caught a damn at 1969, the Japanese smoked half-sakhalin there and squeezed it into 1904-1905, well, then we returned, well, the Mongols bent so long, but right now they won’t even see where they are in telescope, well, that's it particularly large such graters highlighted, but from the west it’s easier to write a lot to put an ellipsis .... all attacked))))

      They are trying to hang noodles on the ears of Russia again! The task is to lull the vigilance of our state, it almost succeeded with Gorbachev! If you agreed that NATO will not come closer to us, but what really is? So Barak also suggests reducing the nuclear weapons that they they’re really afraid! And near by they develop PRO-shku!

        They are not just the most dangerous, nor the most vile.
        With such closures and enemies is not necessary.

        Whatever the threat from the south is, it is necessary to drive "allies" from the west and Israel into the Stone Age and keep them there until they die out.
        And the south, it was always wiser than the west, until it was corrupted by our "allies". Over time, they will come to their senses, or we will help them again.

    Adolf Hitler to Stalin: “You should be afraid not of the West, but of the South.” In the offices of all those in power, urgently pour a plate in the metal with the words: “NEVER TRUST THE WEST !!!”, no matter what they say, what they promise no matter what songs are sung, you need to approach with the suspicion that all this is a lie. And when one or another official signs an agreement with the West, a sign should fall on his head, as a rule, there are usually no brains there, and so after bruise, the first phrase can and "hammer into the head." East, North and South, by the way, this also applies.

        Mongols from the West?

        Mongol - until the 16th century, this was the name of the white people who lived on the West Siberian Plain, they were also called Scythians-Hyperboreans, Alans. “Mongols” in today's sense are falsely considered “Chinese” Kalmyks-Dzungars.

        Mongol-Tatar yoke - The word "Igo" means order. `` Tat '' is an enemy, i.e. The Tatar is the enemy of the Aryan. And to whom could the Aryan be the enemy? Could he be the enemy of the Rasiches, i.e. to your fellow Clans? The only one to whom he was an enemy was those who wanted to enslave these Rods. That is why they write in the official history that the Great Horde went to Russia, or in other words - the Mongolo-Tatars - the Great Enemies of the Aryans, who did not accept Christianity. And they came from the East of Russenia (Tartkhtaria).

        Mongolia - so foreigners called Russia. The very name "Mongolia" comes from the Greek word "Megalion", i.e. ''Great''.

        Although for whom am I crucifying here? Continue to study Bayer, Miller, and Schletser. Apparently their Norman theory is closer to your body.

    I quote: ... "Russia would benefit from constructive cooperation with the EU and NATO," the Secretary General said .... "
    Rogozin was once a member of NATO, but to no avail - it’s not for the accusation of Rogozin’s name, but for accusing the politicians of NATO countries. THEY (i.e. NATO) DO NOT HEAR RUSSIA, or rather DO NOT WANT TO HEAR !!! So Russia never had constructive cooperation with NATO, and never will!
    And as for the threat from the South ... By and large, this is China, and then in the future ... And we (Russia), I hope, will have prepared enough by then ... Indeed, in the 60s, when hostilities were practically conducted between the USSR and China, China had both nuclear weapons, and the population was wow! However, things didn’t go beyond local hassles - after all, our nuclear club weighs a lot, enough for 666 Chinas.
    NATO Secretary General is hypocritical and hypocritical, saying that there is no threat from them. In this case, they are fighting with Russia not with the help of armed forces (military operations), but with the help of a mechanism of political and economic pressure. From the South, such pressure is felt less, so let not be disingenuous ...
    And by and large, Russia should not trust anyone, and since the West considers us Asians, and our political scientists call it Eurasians, Russia should use Asian wisdom and cunning: smiling at everyone, turn a cookie in one pocket, and in another - squeeze a ready-for-action club.

    Western countries, except for the USA, the Russian Federation are not opposed. Their capitals are ravaged for several days by smashing migrants from the south and they can’t cope with them wherever they go to the Russian Federation. But this does not mean that we will believe in the West, there is no more faith in you. In addition, you yourself have made a problem from the south. Who stirred up the BV and continues to support the Wahhabis? The answer is west.
