Military Review

Today and tomorrow

28
Washington is buzzing with talk about the introduction of American troops in Eastern Europe. But if we have not lost our mind, we will not fight with Russia because of Ukraine - this territory has never been viewed by the Americans as vital for the United States.


Before we start sending troops to Eastern Europe, as we did it 65 years ago under Harry Truman, let's ask ourselves: what destroyed the USSR? The American army, never crossed the Elbe and did not fight with the Red Army?

Not. What made the republic separate? Nationalism destroyed the empire. Gorbachev allowed the republics to secede from the USSR, because Russia was not only tired of forcing them to unite, but also wanted to become part of the free world.

If Putin wants the Russians in Ukraine and Belarus to become part of Great Russia again, does this mean that he also wants to unite the Bulgarians, the Romanians, the Poles, the Hungarians, the Czechs or the Slovaks under Moscow's hand?

His rating, close to 80%, is so high because he returned to Russia the role of the creator of a new world order. This is patriotism: not at all what we are accustomed to seeing at NATO, as part of which there are only idlers.

If the Russian army entered the territory of Ukraine, it would inevitably face the resistance of the population. But if Eastern Ukraine wishes to join Russia or become an independent autonomous region in May, why should we oppose it?

Are we not the proud descendants of people who wanted independence from the UK in 1776?

Why can we recognize the separation of Scotland from Britain, Catalonia from Spain, Venice from Italy, Flanders from Belgium, but the democratic separation of Donbass from Ukraine is a problem for us?

Nationalism is a threat to nations, but despite this, patriotic sentiments are growing in the world every day. For example, China’s claims on the Japanese islands caused a surge of nationalist sentiment in Japan after World War II. Japanese nationalism, in turn, spawned anti-Japanese sentiment in Korea.

India is indignant because of the presence of the Chinese Navy in the Indian Ocean. China, in turn, is facing resistance from the Vietnamese and Malaysians because of the South China Sea.

In the north-west of China, the Uygurs demand the separation of the Xinjiang region from under the jurisdiction of the PRC and hope to turn it into East Turkestan.

In addition, Kurdish nationalists pose a serious threat to the unity of Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq.

The same situation exists in Europe. Elections to the European Parliament in May are likely to bring the votes of the British Independence Party, the National Front Marine Le Pen and the Freedom Party Gert Wilders.

And just as Russia would like Ukraine to remain outside the EU, these parties also wanted their countries to withdraw from the union.

Nationalism is today. Centralization and globalization are already yesterday.

A new world order is coming. And although, perhaps, the growth of patriotic and anti-globalism is unpleasant news for global elites who are committed to climate change and are struggling against global economic inequality, but the growing influence of nationalism does not represent a big threat to the real interests of the American people.

    It is good that intelligent people appear in the West, and it’s bad that there are still few of them to be listened to by the masses.
    So drinks for reasonable and sensible people around the world!

        Perhaps the British flag is more suitable. The title of world garbage in London is difficult to take away. Our garbage there is a couple of tanks.

    What has been happening in recent decades is a review of the outcome of World War II.
    The United States and others like them have violated all agreements on the post-war world order of Europe after the war.
    Moreover, under their patronage, Nazism and fascism are reviving ... in the beginning was Yugoslavia, now Ukraine.

    We will not fight with Russia over Ukraine ... Ukraine will not fight over itself ... The current government is only able to beg for help from NATO, and it’s weak to fight by itself ... Moreover, in our country, Natsik who has gone crazy is not needed . There are enough of her own criminals ... Russia will not occupy them ... They themselves will crawl, stubborn (if they grow wiser).
    PS But unite the Slavic peoples, at least in the form of a confederation ... Oh, dreams ...

          They have so far canceled it, the owners will put pressure - again they will go on occasion. Although Romania replaced them with itself (not from a great mind), but as they were the American six, they remain. True, they can’t keep up with Poland, they are in the lead, and they are not going to give up their place to anyone, despite the fact that the Balts are hanging on their underpants.

          Is it even strange that they have no color revolutions on this occasion?

    Mr. Buchanan plays on the mood of the US population, he is a Republican, but Obama is a democrat. Already, Republicans can score a bunch of points and put their president in the future. Politics and money.

      he is a republican

      Despite the fact that basically Republicans always always carried hawkish rhetoric, relations between the USSR / Russia and the SGA under the Republican presidents were more stable and definite, it was easier to communicate. And no matter what the democrat president is, it’s a political prostitute, in which relations have escalated to the limit.

    Nationality will be in one of the first places when a person makes any decision. The Bolsheviks failed to push back nationality and build communism, and the liberal-Jewish world elite also failed to carry out globalization. I will not go into either the methods or the personal goals of both groups. Stalin, a former seminarian, remembered the Bible, remembered the tower of Babel and the division of people by god according to languages, therefore he turned off the world revolution and, at the same time, led the Jewish Bolsheviks. The current Jewish world elite is again trying to create one universal people, so as not to bother with the robbery of the population, it doesn’t work again, some kind of incomprehensible Russians got in the way again. Well, the Jews cannot understand that we do not live by consumerism alone, our soul hurts when someone is offended by others. I don’t want to insult the long-suffering Jewish people, but you have gathered the majority of world wealth for yourself, and how do you manage this? You can’t even create a world on your own earth, why are you crawling into all the world's holes.

    Look how the politicians of the "world scale" have recently started talking in the West. We all already know this without you ..
    You have always respected only strength! And in the 90s, nightingales sang about the world of friendship "crap principles" .. And we believed you then ...

    It is necessary to prepare for a big war, a change of world order - world war, there has not yet been another. And in time it should already begin, no one has yet canceled the historical-temporal cycle. Now it’s about 37-40 years old, naturally in the modern interpretation. Well, I think so.
    To create untouchable reserves, to look for allies, to arm themselves with quiet glanders, but quickly, time is already short.
