Military Review

The United States is entangled in its own politics

In recent days, the press is increasingly writing about the revision of US relations with Russia. We have already agreed on a new phase of the "cold war", on the application of the "policy of containment" - right along the lines of 1947 of the year. As if Obama himself planned to make a sharp turn from the "reset" and for the beginning decided to send to Moscow as Ambassador Tefft - a man who worked in diplomatic posts in Lithuania, Georgia, Ukraine and, of course, to the core, committed to the ideals of American liberal democracy.

В "New York Times" from April 19, you can read that the United States is reviewing relations with the Kremlin and are preparing to return to a "policy of containment." The latter involves cooperation with the Russian Federation in certain areas of overlapping interests. In all other areas, Russia in the system of international relations will be “ignored” by the White House. Probably, John Tefft, a diplomat with experience in the embassies of Ukraine, Georgia and Lithuania, will go to Moscow as ambassador. However, the official appointment will have to wait long. The newspaper only makes an assumption.

Washington plans to spend two years on a plan to revise relations with the Russians. This figure, we note, is hardly accidental: in 2016, Obama is going to take stock of his presidential activities. New anti-Russian policy just for this fit. It is necessary because Obama with something to enter historyin textbooks. Eight years on the throne - no joke.

Bill Clinton, for example, was remembered by Monica Lewinsky and a lie to Congress (I didn't have anything like that with Monica). George W. Bush was remembered for 9 / 11, incessant wars and wonderful geographical discoveries (for example, he did not know where Iraq was located, with which he fought). But Barack Obama has become famous for so far only as “neither fish nor meat.” Defenseless Libya bombed, but retreated from the strong Syria and Iran. With the Arabs from Saudi Arabia broke. With Israel too. Europe heard from the State Department an annoyed "fac". Crimea is the owner of the Oval Office profukal. With Russia, instead of rebooting, it turned out that the devil knows that even good Uncle McFaul, the keeper of the symbolic button, chose to fly home from Moscow. Away from "anti-American rhetoric."

Obama's throwing is probably the symptoms of his “childish” resentment. The candidate of philosophical sciences Yury Baranchik spoke about such one of these days ("Sight").

Fear was replaced by hysteria, hysteria was replaced by a children's insult in the spirit of "do not come to me, I was offended." Adult men do not behave this way, the expert notes.

The White House’s latest statement that Obama decided that he would never have a constructive relationship with Putin allowed Baranchik to diagnose frustration to the American president (from Latin frustratio, deception, vain expectation). A similar condition arises in a person when he is faced with any obstacles and cannot achieve his goals. Satisfaction of desire or need becomes impossible. In a state of frustration, a person experiences anger, despair, anxiety, irritation, frustration, etc.

What kind of obstacle prevented Obama? It is clear that Putin became this object. Russia's victories in 2013-2014 caused Obama to fear that he would go down in history as an American president who could not stop Russia.

“But since Obama could not cope constructively with this fear, hysterics followed - the first level of sanctions, the second level, the third, etc.,“ Russia is a regional power ”, etc., not realizing that we have long put on the newspaper with these sanctions one large cutlery.

That is, fear was replaced by hysteria. And now we are witnessing the transition of hysteria to the next stage in the development of frustration - a childish offense. Psychology gives us a clear and unequivocal answer that some people (and, as we see, the president of the most powerful country in the world, the USA, Barack Obama is not an exception) often react to the impossibility of overcoming something in themselves with negative emotions when we they really wanted to, but they didn't give us, as if they had deceived me. ”

Here we are watching B. H. Obama in the role of "offended boy."

The other day there was a short "straight line" by Alexei Venediktov (Echo of Moscow) with Jen Psaki, the State Department spokesman. If you carefully get a grasp of her answers, you get the impression that there are no such plans of the Cold War, and even a “childish” resentment.

“The doors are always open for diplomacy,” said Psaki, referring to the Ukrainian crisis.

Regarding the third level of sanctions, she noted: “... It is important to identify the consequences. The United States is capable of imposing sanctions on people, companies and sectors. But the goal is not sanctions, but de-escalation. ” (That is, we add in parentheses, the goal is not to impose sanctions at all, but to scare the Kremlin. And they frighten him only because they think: Putin will not stop in Crimea.) Moreover, Putin’s candidacy as a person subject to sanctions is not considered at least now: “A number of people are being considered, there are still many people against whom sanctions can be imposed before we discuss President Putin.” And a statement about the possible “cold war”: “We hope for de-escalation ...”

Thus, the philosopher-expert early enough attributed B. H. Obama the role of an offended child. Another thing is that it is difficult for the American president to come to terms with the fact that for almost a quarter of a century the State Department has invested money in the Ukrainian flowers of democracy, and Russia has frustrated the fruits. This is a loss, this is a failure of American foreign policy - and it is felt by Obama especially hard after post-Soviet Russia for a long time obediently played the role of an economic and political appendage of the West. Moreover, the turn of relations happened in 2011, just under Obama, who bombed Libya with the allies. So is he, is not Obama, is to blame for the turn? ..

Yet the return to the “cold war” - at least to some extent - is obvious. The West, as they say, does not fully recognize the "annexation" of Crimea by Russia. Obama will disguise his geopolitical loss of 2014 of the year with propaganda about aggressive Russians, who, despite the "reset" and American statements about "de-escalation", still pull the blanket over themselves. The Western press is not tired of writing about forty thousand Russian soldiers who have accumulated near the Ukrainian borders and are waiting for Shoigu's order. And he, in turn, is waiting for the order of Putin, who is developing a plan for Operation Southeast. It turns out such a bright political picture: the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Obama, and against him - the aggressor Putin riding a bear. Such a primitive cliché is easily absorbed by consumers of television and print production in the United States under Coca-Cola and chips.

And then try to convince future generations of Americans, who will learn from the relevant history books, that Putin did not unleash a war with Ukraine and did not cut off the long-favored Crimea from the independent unitary republic — about Finland. Meanwhile, the peace-loving Obama, with the peace-loving international community, resisted the invader as best he could, urging him to de-escalate.

Still, Obama has much in common with Mr. Gorbachev. Both talkers, such talkers!

      And here is what the British intelligence agents of the media think: British intelligence agents advised Cameron not to send troops to Ukraine.

      British intelligence leaders warned their country's prime minister, David Cameron, that troops should not be sent to Ukraine, as this could provoke a tremendous escalation of the conflict. “The heads of intelligence warned that British or Western military intervention in the events in Ukraine could lead to a full-scale war with Russia,” the Daily Mirror newspaper writes. “The main message was that you should not start the Third World War over Ukraine,” said one of the newspaper’s interlocutors.

      In addition, MI6 and British military intelligence officers who monitored the situation in Ukraine warned that escalating the crisis could lead to civil war. With this development of events, part of Eastern Ukraine, according to British intelligence services, could declare independence and join Russia. Daily Mirror emphasizes that groups of unarmed British intelligence officers secretly worked in Ukraine, monitoring border crossings on the border with the Russian Federation, as well as cities whose residents adhere to pro-Russian sentiments. This was done in order to “clarify the intentions of Vladimir Putin,” the article notes.

      We will remind, earlier the former head of the SBU, Alexander Yakimenko, said that the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, appointed by the Verkhovna Rada, Valentin Nalyvaichenko, when he was the Consul General of the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States, was recruited by the CIA. Yakimenko said this in an interview with Russia-24 TV channel, noting that his subordinates received this information during an investigation that they conducted together with the Ukrainian prosecutor's office.

      In addition, the former head of the SBU accused the head of the “Spilna on the Right” movement of working for British intelligence. He said that "Spilna on the right" controls the country's Central Election Commission. According to the former head of the SBU, the leader of the movement, Alexander Danilyuk, is closely connected with the British special services, and his wife repeatedly flew to the UK during the growing crisis in the country.

      Recall that Alexander Yakimenko, who became the head of the Security Service in January 2013, was persecuted by the new authorities during the political crisis in February 2014, was relieved of his post and was forced to leave Ukraine. On April 10, it became known that the authorities in Kiev put the ex-head of the Security Service on the wanted list: Yakimenko was charged with "exceeding power or official authority that entailed grave consequences."

      Finland will not be enough. The Great Kingdom of Poland may be offended. After all, in the composition of Russia from 1815 to 1917 he lived, probably got used to it. And what about "our smaller brothers", three Baltic boggy farms (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia)? Sense from them, of course - with a can of sprat, but it was not in vain that Tsar Peter paid the Swedes 60 tons of silver for them, they are ours. And in general, the border must be leveled. And one of the most even borders is between the USA and Canada. You can stop there for now. especially since the Little Russians are there - apparently invisibly, and after the return of the so-called. Ukraine to Russia, too, oh, how they want to go home! So we will hold a referendum. Well, for the edging, it would be necessary to meet Latin America halfway and accept it, following the results of the referendum, into our Fatherland as a Latin American republic within Russia. They will not mind. Let's agree. Then everything will calm down. Let the US province learn to live at its own expense, for educational purposes.
      Yes, I almost forgot! Planet Earth as a result will need to be renamed to the planet Russia.

      Well, why Barak Huseynovich can not be noted in history as a president who did not start another senseless war, justifying his Nobel Prize?

    Obama has long been called the American Gorbachev. More and more people of the West are convinced of this, I believe that Perestroika with a wild market will soon break out in the USA.
    Rather, the people there in the evil empire would have realized that Russian investors need assets in the United States and are ready to "help" American entrepreneurs to improve the country's economy.

    “... Obama himself planned to make a sharp U-turn from the“ reset ”and first decided to send Tefft as ambassador to Moscow - a man who worked in diplomatic posts in Lithuania, Georgia, Ukraine and, of course, devoted to the marrow of the ideals of American liberal democracy. "

    Yes, this ambassador is still a little thing ... It will be interesting to troll him. I wonder how much he will withstand and when it will be removed ?!
    "Touches for a portrait of a prominent diplomat from Oleg Lurie

    The new ambassador of the United States of America is coming to us. Meet John Tefft - a lover of expensive antiques, gay pride parades and the opposition, a long-time and loyal friend of Mikhail Saakashvili and Boris Berezovsky. And also an experienced conductor of all kinds of “color revolutions”, including Georgian and Ukrainian.
    The opposition has a holiday. Unlike his predecessor McFaul, who liked to talk to the Russian liberal opposition, but did not waste much money, Tefft openly declares his readiness to pay for the "development of civil society" according to American manuals. "
    In short, "a true Aryan". By the way, I look at the photo where Nuland is distributing cookies on the Maidan and I recall the enterprising slave traders who bought in bulk the ancestors of the current Obama for glass beads and mirrors.

    The ameyrians themselves created Putin’s idol - as a person who has his own stereotypes, and what’s the right thing, in his ridicule they themselves show their weakness, meanness and despair that they are ready to take any measures ..... Putin is personally private for some kind of correct idea about the humanity that should be.

    Just think ..... people from the United States want to see Putin as their president ....... because the clowns are fed up, who really can't do anything.

    And yet, about stereotypes, include any TV in the west, and the EU, what happened in the country today ..... Russians (show tank columns, gunfire, massive landing, hand-to-hand combat) ... and in America in this time Barack Obama - brews beer on honey with his family, plays golf, rides a horse ..... Here is a normal representation of the Western media.

    I am not thinking that it is worth overestimating the role of Obama in US foreign policy. He is a completely stranger, as they say passed by. But the elite and strategists of the State Department are indeed there for a long time, the same Brzezinski is still salivating. Neither Crimea nor Ukraine nor even Syria rested against him, just someone very smart and cunning Obama skillfully spread

But in the archive 1957 was listed. and this did not bother them, and now we see a new course in US foreign policy in relation to Russia.

    With talkativeness, Obama’s similarity with Gorbachev is limited. Gorbachev surrendered the country to the West in all respects: he withdrew the troops from Germany, not insisting that the Americans leave Germany along with the Soviet troops. He could demand that the Western leaders sign an agreement that the former countries of the socialist camp would not accept NATO, and he believed empty promises that this would not happen. The most striking example of his betrayal is the fact that he, in negotiations with Thatcher, gave her a strategic military map, on which was a plan for delivering an air attack on England in case of war. Any English spy who managed to get such a map would forever become a national hero. Obviously Gorbachev decided to become such a hero for the British. As you can see, Obama did nothing of the kind, although he pursues a truly mediocre policy. So to compare him with Gorbachev is inappropriate.

    The entire Western world does not need a strong Russia. America understands that if Russia returns at least 50% of its former influence and with its financial independence and strength with it, in principle, i.e. It will be almost impossible for Russia to speak from the position of ultimatums and sanctions, and at the same time it (America) will have to admit that it is no longer the only, exclusive superpower. And what Ras says ..... (I would hang myself with that name) and other Western "partners" should be divided by two and understand what the West says, America says. In turn, Russia needs to be guided by the proverb "the dog barks, the caravan moves on."
