2013: the year when Russian diplomacy rose to the Grand Master level

66
2013: the year when Russian diplomacy rose to the Grand Master levelGeopolitics are sometimes compared with a game of chess. And the globe is a kind of a huge chessboard. If we start from these comparisons, US President Barack Obama had an unpleasant year. His colleague, Russian President Vladimir Putin, on the contrary, is brilliant. Let's look at the scoreboard. Earlier this year, Obama’s activities in the Middle East revealed his weakness and indecision as the “commander in chief” of what he did in the case of Syria. His dodging with the so-called warning red line, which cannot be crossed, is a vivid example of this. Waving America with a saber, which in the end could have resulted in another regional war, turned out to be a “dampened petard”. Fortunately, the fire was prevented by Putin’s competent diplomacy.


His highly courteous and skillful foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, deftly took the initiative from the Washington instigators of the war, known as "neo-conservatives." His team convinced (using, without doubt, strong arguments) the Assad regime to submit to the demands of the “international community” to abandon all their chemical weapons. Now, before continuing to pay tribute to Russian diplomacy, it is worth mentioning a couple of failures. For example, Moscow’s inability to curb one of its main client countries is North Korea. Her strange behavior, both within borders and throughout the region, continues to threaten stability in the Far East.

Nevertheless, returning to the positive aspects, Russia also plays a constructive, if not a key role in the fact that Iran puts its nuclear program on a halt. The deal has already been signed, despite the concerns of Israel and the insulted cries from the US Congress. With all its intentions and goals, Moscow still plays an important role in preventing a war between the West and Iran. Another feather in Lavrov's hat ... Bravo!

For most of the year, Obama, for his part, has functioned in emergency mode since Snowden’s revelations about the US National Security Agency’s spying giant American surveillance vehicle spying on US citizens and US allies became known. The affair with the NSA caused incalculable damage to transatlantic relations, and especially with the closest European ally of the United States - Germany. In Berlin, where Obama was once regarded as a superstar and almost a demigod, now he is not trusted, if not despised. Putin, on the contrary, shines in the international arena. By this is meant his meeting with the "Man of the Year" by the version of Time - Pope Francis. Who knows, perhaps, if Putin continues to do so, then next year he himself may be nominated for "Man of the Year."

In this vein, it seems that the main people of the Kremlin and the Vatican have more in common than you might think. This refers to their ability to restore faith in their roles and the departments under their jurisdiction, which they represent, and which may have been discredited by past wrongs (abuse of power and human rights violations) and morally damaging actions.

Finally, the recent amnesty granted by Putin to a dissident and other “headaches” of the Kremlin turned out to be a source of light advantages in the absence of minuses. The release of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, members of the Pussy Riot rock band and Greenpeace activists turned out to be successful and timely, on which Putin will earn a certain moral capital on the eve of the Olympic Games in Sochi. No matter what Putin’s critics are trying to expose this move as a cheap trick and an attempt to cheaply earn public sympathy, this decision is no doubt another success of his presidency.

The ball is now on the side of Washington. Will President Obama be up to par and show mercy towards those whom he considers traitors or enemies of the state? Does he give presidential pardon to former ANB Snowman and Wikileaks informant Bradley Mannig? Something suggests that the time flowing from Obama’s second presidency could answer this question. In other words, it could happen earlier than one might think.

        He probably wants the elusive Yeltsin, who shook hands with the militants, who later led the terrorist attacks on Dubrovka and Beslan.

        And the article once again underlines the fact that Russia has risen from its knees and is ready to pile on any foe in the teeth. The word “pile” cannot be understood only as "humanitarian bombing", since diplomacy is a much more effective weapon that does not shed the blood of your citizens and does not make you responsible for thousands of innocent citizens of other countries. We are not an American monster or Uncle Sam, we are VITYAZI.

            So you say that Putin lost the election?
            None of the rating agencies doubted his victory, and all attempts to shout about stuffing and falsifications are broken up into the most common example - elections in the citadel of democracy or the same Germany, where transparency is out of the question, in Texas, they promised to arrest the OSCE members so as not to be mischievous.

              No elections, he would not have lost too many other candidates were too small, but all these castling with Medvedev are simply ridiculous, you need to know when to stop and be able to relinquish power at the right time, in the same America Washington was able to find the strength to give up power because he realized that the path "Aina Fuhrer, Aina Deutschland, Aina Reich" leads to nowhere and perhaps if he remained in power, the United States would not have become the United States that we know but would become the same dull dictatorship as in Latin America. Leave Putin after a second term and be content with the same Washington secretly patronized the successor, perhaps he would have become on a par with the Great politicians of this world, "Father of the Fatherland" and all that, but it so happened that Putin is just a greedy politician hungry for power, not very smart as they say about him, and so apparently is, and apparently he will "rule" until he becomes bent from old age or from constipation.

                A short excursion around England, which, according to your logic, should have slipped to the level of Latin America.
                For example, Margaret Thatcher was the premiere of 11 for years in a rowbut she didn’t leave politics later, being a shadow adviser and the "older brother" of his successor, John Major (Why not the situation with Dimon ??). Total 18 years of rule Thatcher and her protege Major. Then Tony Blair ruled 10 years old and after myself aboutset brownby assigning (!!) him no election at all the head of the country another 3 year. Western media outraged the successor to Medvedev, point-blank not noticing that in their den of democracy, Brown simply put everything. Democracy, sir!
                In the photo you can see the reaction of Blair and Brown on your attack on Latin America.

                The United States is a dictatorship. The dictatorship of the Fed and those who stand behind it. And the Americans already understood this, unlike you.
                It is impossible for the leader of a country like Russia to leave after 4-8 years! Moreover, the leader of such a country IS NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE! If we are, of course, for the country, and not for some secret clans that quietly rule this country, as it is now in the USA.

            Without denying their own desire to hang all corrupt politicians in the State Duma and in the field, I can say that under the same Yeltsin, this very government sold strategic military enterprises and pushed laws necessary for the oligarchy (read the CIA). It’s foolish to say that corruption has only gotten worse, but the problem has not become less relevant. Ah, yes, the most corrupt system in the world is the EU and the USA ... They took away a trillion, a senator who realized that trillion got fired. Democracy s.


            Quote: Standard Oil
            "change of power" is one of the basic principles of democracy.

            There is an example in England above. Here's a couple more.

            FRANCE - Charles De Gaulle and his successor Medvedev Georges Pompidou ruled the country 30 together for years in a row, Francois Miterand - 14 years in a row, the SND party rules in France for the last 17 years (Chirac - 12, Sarkozy - more 5)

            South Korea - the period of economic miracle came just the dictatorship of ChonDuHwan

            Finland Urho Kalevo Kekkonen, ruled the country unchanged for 26 years.
            An experienced manager? Does it do better than others? Yes, even if 10 times re-elect him, if he works well and his voters like it. They are re-elected by direct, secret and popular vote, under video cameras and with the involvement of any number of observers for fair elections.

            And then! They generally have a very strange opinion of these people "pissed off all polymers"! And pay attention to the nickname Standard Oil as it is not comfortable for me from this!

            After the Civil War, the US economy entered a period of economic boom. The oil industry, and in particular Standard Oil, was booming. The company actively absorbed small and medium enterprises, taking advantage of the fact that the federal and local governments turned a blind eye to the machinations of the oil giant. By 1880, the company processed 95% of oil produced in the United States. In 1882, the creator of Standard Oil, John Rockefeller, organized the Standard Oil Trust, a group of industry corporations from 40, which enabled him to control the entire oil refining industry. In 1894, Rockefeller became the first American billionaire.

    Despite all this and Russia on its feet, Russia is standing and gaining ground!
    President of Russia new successes in the new year! And there are more fighters in the team, such as Lavrov S.V., to whom there is a separate bow.

      You Liberians will not please.

      It will never reach the poor that the presidents are pawns THERE, they can be changed at least every day, nothing in the management system (and government!) Will change! And in our country the replacement of the president will lead to a change in the entire government, a collapse and to another "restructuring", if not to a CIVIL WAR!
      DO NOT CHANGE HORSES AT THE CROSSING !!!
      But how do you want to feel like a "fighter", especially since the Internet is not a kitchen, no one in the face is not what he will give, but will not even spit! How nice to feel that someone else is to blame for your problems!
      I didn't put the impudent official in place - the administration is to blame, the impudent lump for "attention" to your woman in the face did not give - the Ministry of Internal Affairs is corrupt, in the market or in his own yard the boor has pissed in place - Putin is to blame ...

      in this context, the word "dissidents" who have been granted amnesty means cheap mongrels, puppets. Nobody is afraid of them, who will give them more and go there.
      As for Kvachkov and Khabarov, there is already ideology. And this is a completely different level. You feel the difference, especially in the context that he is not afraid of whom he lets out.

    For development, any state needs to have a "strong" border, an efficient army and a high status in politics. The beginning has been laid, we are waiting for the continuation - a further increase in the role in the world and internal changes (the supremacy of the LAW, regardless of the person). When a country is "protected" in all respects, it is easier to "arrange" internal "affairs".
    WAITING FOR!

    That's what the Moldovans gave us! At the end of the year! Something we apparently missed!

    “According to the results of the visits to Chisinau by senior officials from the United States and Romania in early December and their meetings with the Moldovan leadership, an agreement was reached on the prospect of Moldova’s refusal of neutral status and subsequent entry into NATO. This is stated in a statement by the KGB PMR, the text of which was received on December 30 by the editors of REGNUM news agency.

    “As a reciprocal step, the Moldovan leadership undertakes to provide its military bases for NATO’s needs in the near future, in particular, airfields in the area of ​​the settlements of Cahul (south) and Marculesti (north), the document says. - In turn, the leadership of the Republic of Moldova received from the US guarantees to provide the necessary financial and technical assistance in the European integration process, as well as support in the desire of the Moldovan side to increase the role of the US and the EU in the negotiation process in the “5 + 2” format (Moldova, Transnistria - the parties to the conflict, Russia, Ukraine - the guarantors and mediators, the OSCE - the mediator, the European Union and the United States - observers - REGNUM comment) to the status of full-fledged mediators in the Moldovan-Transdniestrian settlement ”.

    From myself I will add that there is a possibility that, following the example of Georgia 2008 of the year, Moldova will go and only instead of Tskhinvali there will be Tiraspol! Here are the fascist Romanians who conceived! Moldova de facto violates its own constitution on the status of the Moldavian language with a replacement for Romanian now it’s a turn and neutrality has come!

    Well, there is good news for the new year!
    Margarita Simonyan, the head of the RT TV channel, became the editor-in-chief of the Rossiya Segodnya international news agency, the creation of which was signed by the President of the Russian Federation.
    The decision to appoint Simonyan was made by Dmitry Kiselev, CEO of Rossiya Segodnya. "This key position could only be taken by a person with a brilliant journalistic reputation and modern managerial skills," Kiselev said.
    Having become the editor-in-chief of Rossiya Segodnya, Simonyan will also retain his post as head of RT!
    ТNow that we will eradicate the West, not only in London and Washington but also in our heads inside the country!


    In any case, despite all the upheavals of geopolitics, I want to congratulate all members of the forum on the upcoming new 2014 year! I wish you health, happiness and well-being to you and your loved ones!
    I will raise a glass to the chime of chimes for you and our homeland! drinks

      In response to this, Russia will introduce a visa regime with Moldova. And those Moldovans who work here in Russia will show "Kuzkin's mother" to the Moldovan leadership. Not all Moldovans are ready to go to the West as farm laborers, especially to the Romanians.

      Not my idea. From the book of R. Zlotnikov "Eternal".
      The point is that the elected heads of state (serious, respectable states) CANNOT PHYSICALLY enter the course of the affairs taking place in the country - he reigned for 4-5 years - make room for another who wants to amuse his selfishness. And no assistants, parties, as well as elected parliaments, will help here. Ability to use the psychology of the crowd "Bread and circuses!" leads only to a power struggle. World practice counts many cases when, like a smart one, a president or a prime minister, as they say, "overwhelmed the sowing season" in the bud. The same Barack Obamovich, for example.
      The best option is a combination of "strong prime minister with an inferior monarch-emperor-king-king." Or "a strong emperor with a lousy elected-re-elected prime minister."
      As the people say, "Two crossings are equal to a fire." Stability is the key to success.

    In general, it is good that we went into philosophy about the President, shadow owners (well, or there, "advisers"), successors, etc.
    This whole idea of ​​presidency is complete nonsense and the gradual destruction of statehood. To prove?
    Please: here you are the President, influential guys (like the Rockefellers) come up to you and say:
    "listen, freak, you preside here for 4 years, maximum 8. If you want it to be good for you and your loved ones, surrender your country quietly. Do what we say. Here's a couple of billions for everything about everything. Do not listen, repeat the fate of 4 too independent US presidents "
    What was wrong with EBN? And with the Latin Americans? (read about Panama)
    The President is NOT self-interested in his country. HIS children do not rule here, and most likely, do not even live. Tanya Dyachenko (daughter of EBN) now lives in Austria.
    Thank you, of course, to Putin, he is definitely a patriot for the idea, but .... Where is the guarantee that it will continue to be so that the next president will not be a corrupt skin?
    That is why I am for the Monarchy with a strong parliament. The monarch will think of heir children. So it will take care sincerely about their country.

      "In the winter of 1897, the first general population census was carried out in Russia. When filling out the census form, the Emperor wrote in the column" Your occupation ":" Master of the Russian Land. "
      The only honest emperor was Paul I, and even that, the anointed of God, his neighbors reassured him with a snuffbox in the temple. The monarchy, as a way of governing, has one undeniable MINUS: the rich are born heirs, the great have descendants, and everyone else has children, including the monarchs, so great rulers, as a rule, do not leave behind great successors.
      Personally, I would welcome the reincarnation of Joseph Vissarionovich STALIN as leader and collector of the USSR, albeit in a different guise, but with tasks clear to everyone peoplesinhabiting modern ErEf, ready to give their lives for the ONE AND THE INDIVIDUAL!

    The authorities lead the states according to the rituals registered above. As the USSR collapsed, the United States also collapses and there is no merit of individuals, they are just conductors of the Forces. And they select the most suitable candidate as the conductors, be it a talker who drinks a lot, Concentrating. In the United States, it’s even easier, the President there is in fact a manager and he just needs to follow the prompts of influential people. So it was when they laid down changes in financial rules that accelerated the financial crisis with derivatives, so it will be with the final decision on the value of the dollar, its devaluation.

    I'm not saying this is real. But it would be nice. Let it not be absolute, but not quite "constitutional" either. For example, instead of the Judicial Branch being "independent", it would be better if it obeyed the Monarch. Let me remind you: The monarch is a person extremely interested in prosperity and justice for his country. The President can be bought. An "independent" court - even more so.
    The remaining branches of government can be elected, but even here they would not have succeeded in Yeltsin’s revelry. Most likely, if the 90s had happened under the Monarchy, the Monarch would have appeared on TV and said that he was thinking about all this chaos. I would like to speak, because he in the collapse of his country cannot be interested by definition.

      As for me, an ideal system does not exist, be it monarchy or democracy, everywhere there are its own pitfalls! In a democracy, a rogue with his own selfish interests can come to the presidency by electing the same rogue when a monarchy happens freak out! I think Russia needs such a tricky system.
      social democracy and at the same time a strong presidential republic! The rudiments of all this is there! It’s just that if power is concentrated in one person, this is in fact a weak point because one person can be destroyed quite easily even by a monarch, and after him the dependent court and other structures of direct submission will fall! In part, we did it at the beginning of the 20 of the 20th century. The Romanovna family fell. The Russian Empire fell! Well, as a result of civil war white with red and well suffering from the people! If you look at modern monarchies, they have zero power! And no decoration from them and nothing more!
