Fox News: Putin doesn’t need retreat paths - he’s coming


US Senator Ron Johnson believes that the proposals to give Putin the opportunity to retreat with dignity are absolutely meaningless. In an interview with Fox News, he said that Putin was only going to attack. And if he does not fight back now, then he will act according to the scenario of 1938.

Well, I want to transfer the conversation to the topic of Ukraine and Russia, as the conflict continues to flare up. It is said that Russian convoys cross the border. The Ukrainian authorities claim that they destroyed several of these vehicles. There are also reports that the Ukrainian fighter was shot down.

And this week, the results of new polls have appeared, let's see: 74% of respondents believe that President Obama is not pursuing a strict enough policy towards Russia. 77% claim that Putin does not take Obama seriously. Congressman, I want to ask the question: do the sanctions work? Does our strategy work towards Russia, given the success of President Putin?

Eliot Engel, US Congressman: I think that Putin is testing NATO for strength. In the last 15-20 years, Russia, in the view of the alliance, was a kind of partner, and we didn’t seem to need to regard it as an adversary. Now everything has changed. Putin made it clear that he is an opponent of the West, so NATO needs to reconsider the whole balance of forces, otherwise the alliance will perish.

That is, it actually means that the clause in the NATO Charter, according to which every member of the alliance must spend at least 2% of its defense budget, must be respected by all members. Now only three or four countries, including the USA, spend so much on defense.

Personally, I think Putin is a bully. If you do not fight him right away, you still have to do it later. I do not like comparisons with Hitler, but in 1938, some said: well, ok, give Hitler Czechoslovakia, the Sudetenland, because he is worried about the protection of ethnic Germans. If we do that, everything will be fine. Everyone knows what happened next.

Now, some say that Putin needs to give the Crimea, or maybe a small part of eastern Ukraine. After all, he protects ethnic Russians. This bully can not be allowed to. And I believe that our current actions in relation to Putin will form the world stage for the next 25 years, since he will be in power for a long time. And if he does not see a real threat in us, he will continue to act with impunity.

Senator, have we missed the opportunity to act more harshly towards the Russian leader? In which direction should we move on?

RON JOHNSON, US Senator: Let's hope that we have not missed this opportunity. However, I constantly hear from representatives of the presidential administration that they want to offer Putin ways of retreat. He does not need the path to retreat, he needs the path of attack.

We had to immediately fulfill the request of the Prime Minister of Ukraine Yatsenyuk for the supply of small weapons and ammunition. Right now we have to express our support for Poroshenko as openly as possible, loudly and noticeably. We must declare that we are indeed observing the Budapest Memorandum and are ready to help Poroshenko to ensure the territorial integrity of the country and, of course, his independence as the leader of the country.

As Congressman Engel already said, this is exactly the way to deal with a bully. Indeed, it is necessary to achieve peace by force. And we need to strengthen NATO. Polish Prime Minister Sikorski said that the alliance between Poland and America is useless and may even be harmful, because it creates an imaginary sense of security.

Our allies should not think so about the USA. However, due to the lack of determination and because of the weakness that we have shown, our allies are beginning to see us in that light. We must radically change the situation. We must show far greater strength and determination. We must provide Poroshenko with full-fledged support in his attempts to regain control of the east of Ukraine and defeat Russian aggression in this region.

Senator Johnson, Congressman Engel, thank you for taking part in our program.

Eliot Engel: Thank you, Shannon.

RON JOHNSON: Have a nice day.

        He doesn't smoke at all. But the Pendos senator once again confirmed his aphorism - "Well, stupid-ee ..." But this is designed for a certain circle of spectators, like Psaki. In fact, this is a banal justification for supporting one's interests on the border of one's potential adversary.

      This is not nonsense, it's true. it their true. The truth is generally very relative.

      Example: a guy dumped a girl. She got together with her friends, they drink martini, she tells them how she loved him, forgave him all his betrayals, how faithful she was to him, how she idolized him and how he turned out to be a scoundrel and scoundrel. Her friends fully support her, "yes, Masha, he is a goat."

      At the same time, he meets with his friends over a mug of beer and tells how he got tired of her constant lisps, of her constant jealousy and mistrust of him, of her childish naivety and frivolity. The boys certainly support him, they say, "She needs a nerd boy, not a serious man"

      She told the truth to friends, he told the truth to friends, the question is: whose truth is true? draw, both are right

    In the last 15-20 years, Russia, in the view of the alliance, has been a kind of partner, and we did not seem to need to consider it an adversary.

    Just do not distort the facts like a card sharpie at the table. Such partners are not necessary for nothing.
    Who, contrary to all agreements, has expanded NATO to the east? And who is going to put missile defense systems there and against whom?
    There is nothing to blame if the erysipelas are crooked.

      From the point of view of the American elites, we are really acting brazenly. At the same time, in the USA they forget that the Russian leadership should pursue a policy in the interests of the people of their own country.
      The time elapsed since the collapse of the USSR played a cruel joke with the Americans, they relaxed and lost the skills of political (without the use of military force) actions and do not know what can be opposed to the actions of the Russian leadership.

Duc, it turns out they are afraid of us and were always afraid !!! Here is the explanation! But we never attacked them, on the contrary, they always attacked first ... The whole thing is evident in our idea of ​​peace and helping the weak, and the weak understand this and are drawn to us, and these do not want their slaves and satellite-dependent from them, and forcibly made ones, left to us, and that's the solution to everything.

    America now really needs an external enemy (and not just America) in order to distract the population from many other problems and government failures. Just according to the old tradition, Russia was declared the enemy. But lately, creating an enemy from Russia has become more and more difficult. Giant funds are spent on this. But the world has changed too much, just many of those in power do not want to take this for granted.

    Putin is a bully
    But sometimes it’s very useful to be afraid of hooligans, otherwise these hooligans can drop by the teeth inadvertently !!!

    Once the former defense minister of the USA threw himself out of the window shouting "The Russians are coming!" History repeats itself?

    They got used to dealing with spineless politicians, with dependent states, so they were shocked by the fact that someone had an opinion and respected their sovereignty. The first shock was - Snowden, Russia dared to disobey the masters of the world, there was so much hysteria and groans, the second blow was Syria, as it is, a "bloody dictator" was appointed and suddenly everything fell through, Russia dared to disagree, again foam at the mouth and a slight panic. Now we see the third blow to the pride of mattresses, Crimea and Novorossiya ... It's time to fall into depression, or even paranoia, "Help, the Russians are coming !!!" and jump out the windows.

    I recently read someone’s comment that Russia needs to issue a yearbook with goals for its strategic missile forces with areas of destruction. Perhaps this is really necessary, because It will cool the ardor of especially militants.

    Personally, I consider Putin a bully. If you don't fight him right away,




    Mr. Senator, what about mushrooms in the States, nuclear mushrooms?
    You forgot, Russians dying, pinch a grenade.
