NATO mouse fuss near Russian borders
The policy of double standards has always been the calling card of the North Atlantic Alliance. Outwardly, peace-loving and often smiling NATO functionaries have always been able to organize everything so that it turns out that they can do anything and nothing to others. All have long been accustomed to get used to this strange logic, but Russia, for some reason, sometimes allows itself to “peck” on the NATO bait.
An amazing thing, Russia today, possessing serious military and economic potentials, continues to listen to the opinion of Western leaders on where we are recommended and where they are not recommended to carry out military tests. If we follow the NATO directives, which is called definitively and irrevocably, then our armored units must not stand in any way west of the Urals; weapon should be, if not sawn into metal billets, then mothballed in mines, and strategic bombers, they say, need to be shredded onto flaps.
At the same time, NATO military leaders are actively developing drafts of the so-called agreements, according to which the requirements are imposed only on the Russian side. Even summits within the Russia-NATO framework are nothing more than the murmur of Russia's military plans on the part of Western states. As soon as Russia conducts exercises of any level and mass, or to test a new weapon in its, we note, territory, like a NATO hysteria begins in NATO chapters. They say that the “Russian bear” has woken up again and is now threatening the world. With such words, which every now and then come from the lips of high-ranking Alliance officials in popular media, one can intimidate Western society so that those who have a tooth for a tooth will stop falling. This creates a stereotype about the Russian military aggressiveness, which can turn the whole world into a testing ground for Russian nuclear weapons. Such hysteria in relation to our country has been going on since the days of the cold war.
At the same time, NATO troops conduct the most active exercises literally around the world, including on the territory of the states located in close proximity to the Russian border. So throughout the year 2011, exercises with the suppression of military resistance of the army of a certain “made-up” state took place on the territory of the Baltic States. One can imagine who the organizers of the exercise under the guise of such a state meant. Certainly not North Korea or Afghanistan, to which there are several thousand kilometers from Latvia and Estonia.
NATO exercises were not limited to the ground option. And on the Baltic Sea, several operations were carried out to neutralize the fleet, again a “made-up” enemy. Well, here Afghanistan, with its threat of restoring the Taliban government, is no longer at all, due to the lack of a fleet as such.
And then they passed the exercises, according to the scenario of which the NATO military seized large railway hubs of the enemy. And again it can be assumed that the NATO military will either get to Moscow or St. Petersburg from Riga or Tallinn. In fact, they will not drive on trains to Iran or Syria.
In general, the anti-Russian component in the exercises of NATO forces is more than obvious. In this situation, the Baltic countries act as a springboard for a possible strike on our state.
Under current conditions, when the world is facing truly serious threats, NATO’s adventures look like some kind of phantasmagoria. While Latvia and Lithuania themselves barely make ends meet, trying to find ways out of the most difficult economic situation, they still have a desire to hurt Russia. Brussels is already ready to ask Moscow for economic assistance, but the post-Soviet dwarf states cannot live in any way, realizing that such a state as Russia is near.
The most interesting thing is that today Europe really depends on Russian energy resources and, instead of engaging in constructive dialogue, continues to fight with “virtual” states, invented by the commanders of their armies who wear suspiciously Russian surnames. And what else can you say if one of the NATO functionaries developed a plan, according to which the NATO forces grouping had to destroy a certain tank division of General Zavanov (well, Russian names in the West were always able to come up with some kind of absurd), well, at least not Ivanov. Apparently, the Balts, too, have thoroughly forgotten Russian surnames.
In such a situation, you need to fairly calmly respond to this mouse NATO fuss near our borders. In the end, it is possible, without paying absolutely no attention to anyone, to conduct exercises in the territory, for example, Venezuela. Or even in the same Kaliningrad region. You can also think of some generals of Peters or Adamaitis who need to be tied up and betrayed to a military tribunal. You can even arrange a ride on military boats on Lake Peipsi and declare to the Estonians that this is not aimed at them at all - they simply want to see if we can repel the Taliban attack ... In general, we need to play about the same game: smile and do shit at the same time. Well, if they don’t want to see us as a country that is far from attacking Latvia and Estonia all over there.
Of course, the Balts are afraid of a repetition of the Georgian-Russian 2008 war of the year already on their territory. But we must think that the leadership of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia is far from the insanity of Mr. Saakashvili. If, of course, it also wants to restore a certain constitutional system by killing the Russian military, then the response from Russia will not be long in coming. But then, the Balts and phlegmatic people, so as not to allow themselves big adventures.
And about NATO's teachings - yes, for God's sake, spend it, but let us perhaps act the way we want it, not as ordered from the Pentagon. In the end, it will be possible to shut off the valve, so to speak, as preventive maintenance.
