Enemies numbered

Putin's Russia behaves like an opponent of the United States. NATO forces should focus on deterring the Russian military. One of the main threats to Washington is Moscow. The United States must hinder Russia's actions in terms of "national interests." About all told the US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.




In the USA last year, lists of America’s external enemies came into vogue. We have written about this many times on “VO” and quoted Obama, various generals and admirals from the Pentagon, and therefore we will not repeat. We only recall that almost all these high-ranking Americans called the first enemy either Russia or the “Islamic State”. There was even a kind of dependency: if “IG” was designated as enemy number two, Russia would take the first place; if the Islamists were at the top of the list, Russia was placed at number two.

Mr. Carter’s numbering is also not original.

Speaking to California Marine Corpsmen, the head of the Pentagon voiced his own short list of US foreign enemies.

According to him, the main threats to the United States are the Islamic State and the Russian Federation.

First place Ashton Carter gave the "ugly phenomenon called" IG "with which we must fight and which we will win," notes RIA News".

The second largest threat the minister called the policy of Russia for the last year. Carter is ready to impede Putin’s threatening policy: “We must prevent it from the point of view of our national interests, and because we have important allies and partners in this part of the world, and we have important NATO commitments.”

A separate threat is the actions of the leadership of the Russian Federation in Ukraine. According to Carter, the Kremlin’s policy in Ukraine “leads the Russians in the wrong direction,” because wrong actions increase confrontation with other countries. “These two (threats) are bigger. We must both resist them, ”the chief Pentagonist remarked.

Ashton Carter spoke about the Russian threat not only at a speech in front of the Marine Corps in California. The minister gave an interview to the influential journal Foreign Affairs, where he noted that the Pentagon considers it necessary to focus on "deterring the Russian forces" and to aim at this North Atlantic Alliance.

“We support the aspiration of Ukraine to build its economy. We also help train and equip the Ukrainian army, - quotes Carter TASS. “We provide ongoing assistance in many areas at once.”

The minister noted that Washington and NATO are taking on a “deterrent role”: “In Ukraine, the situation is essentially a clash between the attractiveness of the European economic and political model and Russia's resistance to such developments in the neighboring territory, which it perceives as a threat ... Therefore, we are creating what I called the new rules of the game for NATO in order to once again assume a deterrent role through the strengthening of allies. ”

However, this is not about the war or the weapons of the Ukrainians. According to Carter, Washington and its allies focus on "economic and political measures." And the main ones on sanctions are not Americans at all, but their partners, because “the main lever is not the Americans, but the Europeans, because the volume of their trade with Russia is much more”.

The Pentagon considers it necessary to focus on the "containment of the Russian forces" and aim the North Atlantic alliance at this, Carter summed up.

“I described our approach to Russia as solid and balanced,” said Carter. - It is firm because we are developing opportunities in the military sphere, aimed directly at deterring the Russian forces. We have not done this for 25 years, but we are doing it now. ” “And we are helping non-NATO states, such as Ukraine, counteract Russian influence,” the head of the Pentagon said.

A few days earlier, Carter also spoke of Russia as an enemy.

20 August at a press conference, US Secretary of Defense stressed the concern that Washington is causing an escalation of violence in eastern Ukraine. Referring to the question of the US threat from Russia, Mr. Carter said that "Russia represents an existential threat to the United States simply because of the size of the nuclear arsenal it possesses."

But it was so before. BUT news "That ... for about a quarter of a century now, since the cold war ended, we do not consider Russia to be an adversary." “However, the minister cites "Voice of America"- under Vladimir Putin, Russia in many respects, I would say, in some very important relations, behaves like an adversary. Previously, this was not. "

The behavior of Russia The United States and NATO have to take into account: “We are adjusting our forces and means in a quantitative sense and in terms of their deployment, taking into account such behavior of Russia. We also cooperate with NATO in new directions. ”

Afghanistan is over, and now the North Atlantic Alliance has aimed at deterring "at its eastern frontiers": "If in the last decade or so, attention has been focused mainly on Afghanistan, now the alliance is more focused on restraining at its eastern frontiers and at strengthening countries bordering Russia, both members of NATO and other countries, to deter hybrid military operations. ” Speaking of such actions, he cited the example of the "green men" from Russia, operating on Ukrainian territory.

Restraining Russia, Carter at the same time would like to cooperate with her: "We continue to cooperate with Russia ... There are issues on which they cooperate with us, for example, in many significant aspects of the fight against terrorism, on North Korea, Iran and on some other issues."

Further, the minister expressed the hope that Putin’s successor, or even Putin himself, would lead Russia into a bright future: “... under Vladimir Putin or one of his successors, the leadership will lead Russia ... not along the path of confrontation with the rest of the world and self-isolation they are moving now, but on the path of closer economic and political integration with the rest of the world. ”

It is not difficult to imagine, let us add, what Ashton sees this “integration” of Russia with the “rest of the world”.

First, a “successor” sits on the Kremlin throne, ready to dance to the tune of Washington.

Secondly, Russia does not encroach on any role in the world, except the role of a raw materials appendage of the West. Remaining as an appendage, it will “restrain” itself.

Thirdly, Russia cancels counter-sanctions and again buys European apples, cheeses and jamons with wagons, because America’s European partners are dissatisfied with losses.

Fourth, Moscow is returning the Crimea and apologizes to Poroshenko for the temporary use of the peninsula. Ideally, it would be nice to pay Square and cash compensation. And maybe even some territories to throw. And to give the Germans Kaliningrad and the region so that they could feel the good Russian will. “Russia is a generous soul!” Have you heard? So, this introduction foreigners love very much.

Fifth, Putin’s successor reviews the causes and results of the short 2008 war, returns the “occupied territories” and endorses Georgia’s entry into NATO.

Sixth, applause: Poroshenko and Carter receive the Nobel Peace Prize in half.

Seventh, the name of Putin’s successor: Garry Kasparov. And Mikhail Khodorkovsky will become Prime Minister with him.

This is where full integration will come.

Rosneft is solemnly renamed Yukos, while the tireless Interpol is chasing after Sechin in London and Zurich. Berezovsky is suddenly resurrected in New Zealand ...

Americans even moved Russia in the list of enemies somewhere in third, and even fourth place. Count almost friends. This will be a real geopolitical achievement of the new president of Russia. Not that some kind of annexation of the Crimea!

        Yeah, it’s pointless to appeal to common sense regarding amers. Only the comprehensive strengthening of the strategic nuclear forces, which can guarantee the destruction of the United States, can enlighten the head of the "exceptional".

      The US is doing everything to survive on its own. This is a natural life instinct for conservation, there is nothing surprising. It was just that they had to put pressure on the protein product for a long time. For too long, Moscow dragged on with this affair.

        Regarding the survival of the United States, now is not the 40s of the last century, when the United States hid behind the ocean painlessly, now they will not hide. In the event of war, they will get to them in full, or even will be destroyed. They understand this very well, therefore they want to start a war on the European continent,

      I respect Harry Kimovich very much, he has sound decisions, but he is not the president, unfortunately. But Khodorkovsky is a bloody killer and a thief; in general, he should sit for life, and not be the prime minister. "Bloody Gabe" is far from him by the standards of cruelty.

      Attempting to impose specific people is disgusting.

    Well, we have already heard this more than once, and therefore we pay much attention to the re-equipment of our aircraft.
    Poroshenko and Carter receive in half the Nobel Peace Prize.

    In the real world that the Americans are trying to control, this act of the Nobel Committee would not surprise anyone. Obama received it, and in absentia.

    in the 19th century, it was customary to learn French in Russia; they fooled Napolion.
    in the 20th century, the Soviet Union mainly learned German, defeated the Nazis, and reached Berlin.
    in the 21st century, they learn English in Russia, and even it seems to me that America is in vain pulling on us.

If the Americans put some drafts player or volleyball player in the place of the president of Russia, then for them it would mean a war with Russia, but on a different level. And victory will ultimately be for the truth.

          Privatization as such is not a crime, and if citizens still notice an improvement in the work of Sheremetyevo, then it means they did everything right. Many airports have been privatized, do you have any complaints about their work? If you don’t know whose property the airport is, can you distinguish between private and state?

    Yes, there are not only Yankees, but in general the Anglo-Saxons are essentially that.
    The main thing in this article is that the author correctly pointed out that although all these points will be fulfilled, it will only push the Russian Federation from the 1st place of the enemy to 3 or 4, this is the essence of the relationship between the Russians and the Anglo-Saxons.

In general, the situation is understandable, because the political poker players in the North American states have clearly degenerated, once they put all kinds of mental invalids into such positions.

    The US wants to impose unprecedented sanctions against China for hacker attacks and the devaluation of the renminbi (media). What kind of country, some sanctions from them, well, enemies around.

    Amero-animals do not know that no one has considered them for people for a long time?
    Soon the scenarios of Hollywood films will be embodied on the territory of the USG.
    Weapons are not measured there, disagreements and contradictions too. You need to correctly bring the wick and omerzikosiya will gobble up itself.

    Well, finally, the “good” uncles from Washington showed us the right direction to the wild bears and even threw the national idea: - to be a raw materials appendage for the rest of the “civilized world” (and Ukraine was also included in this). One would like to give “poplar” with “yars” in gratitude only by delivering it under its own power by pressing the corresponding red button.

    Americans only understand power! And Russia began to build up its military and political potential. So they sow with small beads. And Putin still has gunpowder in order to restore order in the off-system opposition. There are levers for this, up to support from ordinary Russians.

    And Russia is breaking up into several states, including national ones, which have been waiting for accession to the EU (for years). And Siberia to go under some external control! And everyone applauds! And Kasparov, the head of Muscovy, receives the Nobel Peace !! And then to China! And hail on the hill - USA!

    Everything is quite simple.
    The USSR was a fairly closed system. RF is not so much, but nonetheless.

    But with the United States or Germany, the situation is different.
    Yes, large volumes of economic activity, but a high standard of living ...
    BUT they are FORCED to operate with resources of the WHOLE planet.

    By the way, it is in this (but not current) the very meaning of globalization.
    Control over Russian Arab Iranian oil is a matter of survival for them.
    Survival of their system.

    The Germans are not so bad people, but by refusing to give control over their resources, we turn into enemies for them.

    The ball is too small - from here all the troubles ..

    So when they come to us to promote their democracy, this is precisely to establish political control (one Sverdlovsk region is almost like West Germany by area).

    But this is not from evil - a great necessity.

    Having revived Russia, we may kill the European Union in its current format.

    On the globe there is only one enemy for the entire planet (ENEMY No. 1) - this is the United States (tan). Do not be this enemy with your fascist views, predatory policies, there will be no other enemies, except perhaps the Anglo-Saxons, but without the United States they will make an ass with a tube and will be washed away from the eyes. So, do not move your fingers, it is better to look in the mirror. and there you can find the animal face with slobbery mouth: this is the enemy number 1: USA (Iya)

    “I described our approach to Russia as solid and balanced,” said Carter.
    We will decipher a little bit: SOLID - these are the bricks that the Americans lay while they see and hear about the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and BALANCED - the bricks are flat, so they don’t roll anywhere ...

    “And we are helping non-NATO states, such as Ukraine, counteract Russian influence,” the Pentagon chief said.
    This is how hiding behind beautiful words makes black deeds. And this is today, sadly, the basis of the foreign policy of this country. They did not expect anything else from the Anglo-Saxons. Everything repeats, nothing new.

    I understand that real politics and the real balance of power is not what our friends and partners tell us, but still it’s alarming, I really don’t want to go back to the nineties. I’m sure that we will be able to defend our independence if everyone acts correctly, because they really don’t want to fight with us, why would they get out of their warm swamp. But they can try to push Putin off with the hands of our liberal public, and one should not think that our liberals are so powerless. What is their provocation with the release of Vasilyeva, I’m sure that our liberal lawyers are the puppeteers of her release, and the performers are the judge and the prison authorities. But this businessman was worth a few percent trust in Putin, especially on the day when the ruble falls. Therefore, I would like to know which prosecutor gave the authorization for release and at the same time see if he had recently committed a large cash outlay. UDO Vasilyeva-a provocation of the enemies of Russia.

    “We support the desire of Ukraine to build its economy. We also help train and equip the Ukrainian army, ”Carter quotes TASS. “We provide ongoing assistance in many areas at once.”

    Pricks in all respects in plain text. The tribunal for Ukraine will be amusing.

    Yes, why does it turn out that during the times of the Russian Empire, under the USSR, under Putin, we very carefully listen to what they say in the United States, we ourselves create the authority and image of a great state for them. All their statements do NOT need to be paid attention to, stubbornly bending their line, and in relation to the United States to act in the same way as they treat us, the wedge is knocked out with a wedge.

    "The Americans will even move Russia in the list of enemies somewhere in third, or even fourth place. Consider almost friends" ...

    Having recounted all the conditions that the United States would like to achieve from Russia, I would like to say: it is better to remain enemies ...

    An open enemy is easier to deal with than an enemy covered in sheep's clothing ... Enough, thank God, that in the 90s, staff members failed to fool and plunder Russia ... Friends ... hmm ...

    But Ashton is another proof of the actions of Putin and Russia against the interests of the United States ...

    "Military observer of the Israeli ynet portal, Alex Fishman, claims that a group of Russian military pilots must arrive at Damascus airport to participate in operations against the Islamic State and other rebel groups.
    Fishman refers to "Western diplomatic sources." According to them, a group of Russian troops - the core of future expeditionary forces - has already arrived in Damascus. She is preparing an advanced operational base of operations in the Damascus area.
    The site claims that in the coming weeks, “thousands of Russian troops, including advisers, instructors, logistics personnel, air defense division employees and pilots, will be deployed to Syria.”
    The exact composition of the expeditionary forces is unknown, but the participation of Russian combat aircraft and pilots in the Syrian war will completely change the dynamics of events in the Middle East "...
