Military Review

The West is vulnerable to its own weapons.

47



Russia's diplomatic position on the coup d'état in Ukraine is much more important for Washington than for Kiev. Ukraine is a weak-willed country subordinate to external players, while the United States is an interested participant in events in Eastern Europe. The United States does not understand how to respond to tough statements by Russia: sanctions against Moscow do not work, military maneuvers at the Russian borders also. How to be? The NATO bloc turned out to be pampered and loose, at least half of its members are completely unprepared for an active phase of confrontation with someone, including Russia. Washington is concerned that its former allies do not respond to patron’s calls, and is concerned about how to defend its interests in the future in Ukraine, Eastern Europe and the world at large.

Raging colossus with feet of clay

All Europe is closely watching how the events unfold in Kiev and the Donbas. True, everyone assesses what is happening in his own way: someone thinks that the protest of the Russian-speaking residents of Ukraine must be suppressed at any cost, and someone is afraid of a big war, and shudders nervously as soon as someone's blood is shed again. And by the way, there are much more pacifists than notorious warriors. In November, many perceived the Ukrainian crisis in a completely different way than they are now, and over the past six months, the number of Western countries willing to raise the white flag and return to the status quo increased markedly.

For example, this is evidenced by yesterday’s statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, where it is clearly stated that Amsterdam is not ready to impose third-level sanctions on Russia. Opinions that sanctions are an inefficient and extremely destructive tool are also adhered to in other states of the European Union, however, for diplomatic reasons, they are not openly reporting this. In this sense, the Netherlands can be called a pioneer - after Germany, of course, the first in a veiled form made it clear to everyone that it is not going to sacrifice business ties with Russian enterprises for the whims of a handful of American politicians.

In general, the North Atlantic Alliance is fragmented, and its members have not yet developed a common position on the issue of Ukraine. But half a year has passed! For comparison, in the 1990-1991 years, NATO countries during this time not only managed to isolate Iraq, but also brought troops to its borders in order to organize a military invasion. Yes, Uncle Sam has lost his former grip, flabby and aged. Now, with incredible efforts, the United States is gathering a handful of allies like Albania, Estonia or Poland for war, however, being aware of their incapacity.

The US itself does not feel any better than its vassals on the European continent. The country's defense budget has been steadily declining over the past few years, and endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have exhausted insanely both American soldiers and American society, which even the bombing of Libya in 2011 considers to be an obvious overkill and believes that in the coming years Washington should concentrate on internal policy for the restoration of the economy, destroyed during the global economic crisis.

If Barack Obama goes to war now, he will enter history USA as one of the worst presidents, worthy of contempt for their adventures. But, apparently, the head of the White House does not understand this: he knows that he will not be able to run for a third term, and dreams of being remembered as soon as possible by his compatriots by noble acts of a world scale. For example, another victory over the next "evil empire". For the sake of personal ambitions, Obama is ready to sacrifice the interests of his people.

How America wants to win

The President of the United States has support in law enforcement agencies. The other day, United States Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel made a proposal to increase funding for the armed forces: they say, this corresponds to the priorities of Washington. He also 2 May said that "the actions of the Russian side confirm the importance of the existence of the NATO military bloc." Later, Hagel developed programmatic theses that, in his opinion, would help to win the confrontation with Russia. Here they are:

• The United States should not take the path of isolationism, contrary to the demands of millions of Americans;
• US military spending should be increased;
• Washington’s military-political presence in different parts of the world needs to be expanded and deepened;
• Allies of America need to be strengthened;
• it is necessary to prepare for a confrontation with Russia in the Arctic region.

Interestingly, Chuck Hagel separated the last item from the third; this means that the conflict between the Kremlin and the White House will not be limited to Ukraine, and will be “exported” to other zones adjacent to the borders of Russia and the Customs Union. Hagel’s theses could become a US program of action in Eurasia until the end of this decade.

In fact, even a dispute over Ukraine in itself is neither the reason nor the cause of American aggression: this is just the first step in a long series of similar conflicts aimed at weakening Russian influence in the CIS countries. The reasons are in a completely different plane - not regional, but geopolitical, where it is a question of the fate of not individual states, but entire civilizations. In essence, what we are seeing now is the continuation of the eternal confrontation between the East and the West, which, after a twenty-year lull, has once again made itself felt. The main prize in this game is not Ukraine, but the whole of Eurasia. The goal pursued by the United States is to achieve fragmentation of the Eurasian continent, to plunge it into the depths of internecine wars, so that none of the European or Asian countries will be able to challenge Washington at the global level.

A series of small armed conflicts along the borders of the "victim", actually proposed by Chuck Hagel, fits into this concept. Probably, the focus of tension will soon move from Ukraine to Transcaucasia, for example, to Nagorno-Karabakh, and then to Central Asia, where the United States will try to loosen Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and, most importantly, Kazakhstan — candidates for creating a single economic space with Russia.

universal weapon

What can Russia answer? The answer lies on the surface: NATO is a weak bloc and must be destroyed from the inside by the same methods that the States use to disintegrate the post-Soviet space. And vice versa: integration processes in the CIS need to be accelerated so that supranational military and economic structures are formed as early as possible. All technologies are universal, and Russia is able to beat the United States with their own weapons.

Ukraine in this sense is a double-edged sword. Firstly, it borders not only with Russia, but with the NATO states, which means that destabilization in this country comes around in the east and in the west. Secondly, the European ultra-right can take advantage of the experience of the Right Sector and other Ukrainian nationalist organizations in order to carry out a similar coup in their homeland, and then the arc of instability will not go along the Russian border to the Caspian and Amur, but directly to the English Channel and Gibraltar, and the epic of a united Europe will end there.

Third, Ukraine is not an asset, but a liability. To keep her afloat, you need a lot of money. Many countries like Germany and the Netherlands are very afraid that if the Ukrainian government is not financed, the civil war in this country will become rampant and Europe will have its own Afghanistan. But no one wants to take over the feeding of the Kiev junta: the European economy is too weak to pull out a state with a population of over 40 million people from the abyss.

Wouldn't it be better to leave the case without a handle called “Ukraine” to Russia? - reflect in the Western European capitals. And they do not do it only under strong pressure from the United States, which, to put it mildly, does not care about the fate of Ukraine. On the contrary, the emergence of Afghanistan between Russia and the European Union will be the best result of the Ukrainian crisis for Washington.

Finally, we must remember that in modern wars, not the one who has more aircraft carriers wins, but the one who has better thought out the strategy. You can lose the battle, but win the war. Ukraine is the case: on the one hand, an anti-Russian coup d'état took place in Kiev, on the other hand, Western appointees would clearly not be able to stay in power, and the West itself would eventually find itself in an impasse: to continue funding the cockroach’s separation or still give it to Russia for so that she put things in order here? And the arguments in favor of the latter are heard more often. Does a poor Ukraine need Russia is a completely different question, and the Kremlin is already deciding whether to accept such a generous “gift” from its western partners. What if we do not want?

          Unfortunately, the facts are already there .. With those who have blood on their hands, there is nothing to talk about .. And with the rest - I think, when everything is over, and lying at Russia's feet, Europe will ask "to somehow deal with Ukraine" - there you just need to connect Russian channels for two months and drive through them the entire chronicle of past events with excursions into history. And the comments of Russian, European and American adequate politicians ... And taking into account the fact that by this time the Ukrainians, unfortunately, will have time to gorge themselves on their junta, the return of brains from the ass will pass quickly ...

    Interesting ... The European Bank here announced the figure that outflow from Russia amounted to 160 billion euros from the new year. And bloggers write that the influx of funds into Russia (return) of officials, businessmen who have fallen under sanctions and affiliated structures with them has already amounted to about $ 705 billion, and this is only the beginning.
    Again, with regard to these 160 billion euros - this is 100% of the so-called "portfolio investments", i.e. investments in securities and capital in the foreign exchange market. We don’t need such "investments" ... they only rage the currency and stock markets. This is speculative capital from which there is more harm than good. No one is going to curtail real investments (factories, enterprises of the West in Russia).

      I agree. This reminds me of the parable that the neighbors went to visit their neighbors with a bottle of vodka. Host hospitality knew no bounds. Time is later, it is necessary to disperse, and those who come to visit do not want to leave (and do not leave). The receiving party begins to get nervous and regret that it invited. As the EU invited to visit, and now begins to regret what happened.

    Personally, my opinion is to take what has not yet been lost due to moral, ethical, economic and simply human factors. That is, those who understand who is now in power in Ukraine. Those who ask. And throw the rest on "European content". Yes, it will be hard, yes, there will be a screeching of the "world community". But a tit in the hands is better. Close the borders more tightly and let the fascist bastards be fed by what raised them - Europa. Wailing about the fact that many were deceived by the propaganda and they are not to blame are not accepted. There is history and brains of its own.
    And the normal Ukrainian people are fighting against fascism. The rest is rot. Both political and moral. Arrange modern Khatyn and then still require something from normal people? No, let them die in their Geyrope if they didn’t have the mind to save their country.
    This, of course, is my personal opinion, which may not coincide with the opinion of others. hi

    In all this I see only one reason. Americans (with the connivance of their fooled people) are trying to globalize their currency - the dollar. But there are limitations in everything, as soon as the world becomes one-sided, it will lead to the collapse of the entire economy of the earth, it’s like yin and yang .. In any case, it’s not so long, the last market for cheap labor has remained in Africa (by the way, the Chinese are trying to spud it ), then about 5-10 years for optimization, and the war for resources will start .. By the way, we are sitting on them very comfortable for the rest.

    Finally, we must remember that in modern wars, the winner is not the one with the most aircraft carriers, but the one who has better thought out the strategy
    .
    It seems that the Americans played too much and do not quite understand the realities of today. And the West is really vulnerable. Based on this historical experience and the alleged theater of operations, even without the use of nuclear weapons, Russia still has serious potential and chances. And if we talk about the Doomsday War, with the use of all types of weapons of mass destruction - nuclear, chemical, bacteriological, and what else is unknown, then it’s difficult to talk about anyone’s victory or defeat.
    Let's not forget about those "little green men". It was in the Crimea that they were so polite because they acted among their population in the temporarily occupied territory. And in Paris, or in Brussels and Munich, they won't be so polite. They can throw something into a reservoir with drinking water, or they can quickly lower the reservoir itself to the underlying city. In other words, for a post-industrial economy, even a bombardment from the "Grad" is not needed to bring the country to its knees. A few hundred saboteurs are enough - and all of Europe will stand in cancer, and another couple of hundred on America in order to plunge it into chaos.
    Thus, war in the modern fragile world is no less dangerous than a firework in a gas tank. Such an example from life.
    On April 10, 2014, the designated US destroyer Donald Cook arrived in the neutral waters of the Black Sea to carry out an intimidation and demonstration of force - in connection with Russia's unyielding stance on Ukraine and Crimea. Before that, another American missile destroyer "Trakstan" was in the Black Sea, in violation of the Montreux convention. That is, there was a typical, beloved by Americans, mouse fuss - saber rattling and international rudeness. The reaction of Russia was calm, but deadly: on April 12, on the great day of cosmonautics, ours equipped an unarmed SU-24 for overflight in neutral waters, BUT with the Khibiny under the wing. Then everything developed approximately according to the following scenario: "Cook" noticed the approach of "drying" from a distance, played a combat alert and froze at the combat posts. Everything went on as usual, the radars calculated the course of approach to the target, the Aegis regularly controlled the guidance systems. And suddenly - bang! Everything went out. The Aegis does not work, the screens show dregs, even the Phalanxes cannot receive target designation! SU-24, meanwhile, passed over the Cook's deck, made a combat turn and simulated a missile attack on the target. Of course, successful - there is no opposition! Then he turned around and imitated another one. And so on - 10 more times! All attempts of technicians to revive Aegis and give target designation for air defense failed, and only when the silhouette of the “drying” melted in a haze over the Russian coast, the screens came to life, and the guidance systems faithfully showed the clear, shining empty April sky.

    America systematically moves to the abyss, and pulls the whole world. Sooner or later, America will collapse. And the whole world will be buried under the rubble of this satanic empire. And the sanctions that the West imposes on Russia are a vaccine against the consequences of the fall of America, it is only for our government to quickly and correctly respond to these sanctions.

    The question is, how strong is our will to withstand US pressure. If enough -
    the opinion of the rest is unimportant.
    (How tired I am of mantras like "America pulls the rest ... America will collapse ... etc. Believe me - you are not original. Back in the 70s of the last century there was a mantra - the West is rotting. What are the most witty answered - but how it smells!)

    IF WE WILL DO THAT THAN WE WILL BE BETTER THOSE SCALES, WHICH THE OTHERS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR HUMAN. PUNISHING IS NECESSARY TO HARDLY, BUT BY FACT, DONE AND IMMEDIATELY FINISHED FULL.


    If our grandfathers thought and fought like that, then May 9 would never have come.
    This means that the work of the grandfathers is more alive than all the living, to see the 21st century generation of Russia and finish it, to finish off the shortcomings, uproot the weed without regret.
    THE WORLD LOVES FORCE.

    yes yes yes a suitcase without a handle must be left to Europe and this is the whole of Western Ukraine without industry and production, but the eastern regions must be separated and God forbid again by force to attach the zapadentsev again feed do-it-yourself Judas at hand ... their fate is to be left to the masters .. By the way, the Hungarians are already rubbing their hands on the western regions.

    The United States does not understand how to respond to tough Russian statements:

    And the comments of Russian, European and American adequate politicians

    there are no adequate politicians, in principle,
    they become adequate when the prefix "ex" is added ... that's when they start talking without looking back at the regional committee))

    Personally, my opinion is to take what has not yet been lost due to moral, ethical, economic and simply human factors. That is, those who understand who is now in power in Ukraine. Those who ask. And throw the rest on "European content"

    well, the wrong approach, the philistine chtoli
    on the memory, too, there are many adequate people, well, now to leave them? their descendants will have the same fierce hatred ...
    from our point of view, of course, SE is more adequate - well, at least 2/3 or 3/4 - not in terms of plan, they want to Russia - but in terms of plan, they want to live peacefully develop to be friends with neighbors, especially with Russia - it is understandable - economically tied, ethnically, etc. but in the west, too, people want to live well and happily. And the fact that several thousand freaks brainwashed several hundred thousand or millions, or even a dozen million, well, who is to blame? - It’s hard to say for sure, but in a word it’s certain if the West is to blame as a whole, because in our East we have a different civilization, and their rhetoric is that we are barbarians and just enemies. and most people think poorly - as they say, the brain consumes half of the bloodstream and oxygen - it requires a lot of resources - it means to move the brain - it's hard work, that's why wretchedness and ignorance ...
    And what can Russia do? - yes, everything is simple - everything has already been invented - to concentrate efforts on the creation of stamps, images - sympathetic to the east, especially the recent history is full of examples - this is the creation of the semiconductor industry in the west of Ukraine and the AN-124 and reactors with diesel locomotives, space rockets and observatories - from which "hello" brothers in mind were sent ... was it? - It was!!! - is it more interesting than spudding the beds? - still would!
    WELL LET'S LIFE FRIENDLY !!! appreciating a common thousand-year history ....
    and in a generation there will appear people who will already begin to think more independently ....
    Well, probably something will have to be banned or reprofiled; Lviv philological and other humanitarian mines

    Do not think that America is really falling apart. No need to amuse yourself with fairy tales. Take a serious look at the world, without the application of efforts on our part, nothing will change anywhere.

    I admit, I would be glad if the prophecies about the financial collapse of the United States came true. But I think it's suicidal to think so. You cannot sit and wait for mercy from fate, you need to do something. Who can what in its place. I do not urge everyone to take a pitchfork and run to Ukraine, I propose to spread truthful information wherever possible. On blogs, on social networks, in comments on information resources. It doesn't take much effort. And sitting on this cozy, full of like-minded people, and repeating "America will collapse" is the easiest thing. And it's tantamount to doing nothing.

    I am a woman in years with worldly experience and, I dare to believe, some knowledge in politics. I have five accounts on social networks, a personal blog, I am registered on a dozen information resources where I can leave comments. And I leave them. As expected, with links to the source, with your opinion. This is my contribution to the information war, in which I fight with the means available to me on the side of Russia. If I took a pitchfork, there would be no more benefit. Who is stopping others from doing the same?

    At the same time, I repeat, one should not console oneself with the vulnerability of the enemy, underestimating the enemy is the path to defeat. An information war is being waged against us, which means that our weapons must correspond to what is used against us.
    I apologize if I offended someone, it’s just boiling up.
