Project "ZZ". Not a threat, but an ordinary Third Rome

66
NATO said that Moscow was not a threat at all. The Russians, of course, are complex, difficult to understand, but they are not a threat, if only because NATO has “reliable mechanisms” for their “containment”. In the meantime, American experts have found out that the order in Syria will be imposed not by the “coalitionists”, but by V. V. Putin and Ali Khamenei. In addition, no "collapse of Russia" is not expected. And another thing: the top officials in the Kremlin are not going to bow to the inhabitants of the White House, and in Ukraine, too, things will not be the way the West wishes.



Moscow Kremlin at night


In an interview with the Slovak newspaper Pravda, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that he sees no immediate threat from Russia to any of the member countries of the North Atlantic Alliance. According to Stoltenberg, who leads "Lenta.ru", NATO gives reliable protection to its members: “As long as such reliable deterrent mechanisms as now exist, the likelihood that someone will make an attack on a NATO member country is very small.”

At the same time, the role of Russia in the world is “very complex and complex,” but the main person in NATO seeks to continue constructive relations with Moscow: “I believe that there is no contradiction between the increase in defense capability and attempts at political dialogue.”

Meanwhile, Jed Babbin in an American newspaper The Washington Times hinted that all roads lead ... to Moscow.

The past few weeks and months have been rich in negotiations. Representatives of the United States and some leaders of the Arab world, the author notes, visited Moscow, trying to finally resolve the long-standing Syrian crisis - after all, the war in Syria has been going on for more than four years. The curious thing here is that no one went to B.B.H. Obama for advice. Instead, the Americans themselves, and some of their Arab allies, went to Moscow. The author compares these Moscow visits with the arrival in the Middle Ages to bow to the nearest feudal lord of those who sought protection and patronage.

Jed Bubin recalls that Europe is currently suffering from flows of refugees - people fleeing from Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen. Obama’s support of the “French war”, the purpose of which was to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi, the author calls “erroneous”.

The refugee problem and the mistake of Obama are "closely related." However, is there any motivation for Russia to stop either the Syrian civil war or the influx of Middle Eastern refugees to Europe?

Already four million refugees, according to newsleft Syria. Germany alone expects as many 800.000 asylum applications this year. Britain resists, but how long will this resistance last? ..

According to the analyst, the Syrian war and the mass exodus of refugees will continue. Here are two arguments: first, the United States lost its influence in these matters, and the influence of the “strong president” Vladimir Putin, as well as Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme religious leader, has, on the contrary, increased to such an extent that, most likely, they determine the outcome of the war in Syria; secondly, the European Union was unable to agree on limiting refugee flows from the Middle East and North Africa.

In essence, Russian President Vladimir Putin has no reason to help Europe restrict the flow of refugees from Syria and other countries. What for? In addition, at the same time he gets a “two-in-one”: he continues to support Bashar Assad (according to the journalist, Assad’s policy is a “destabilizing influence in the Middle East”) and receives a bonus in the form of destabilized European democracies.

And what about the Arabs? As soon as American President Obama abandoned his “red lines”, once painted with threats against Syria, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab world realized that the White House could no longer be relied upon. Americans from the "stabilization" of the situation clearly refused. And the Arabs recognized it as an accomplished simple fact that Putin’s Russia (as well as China) is now replacing America. Moscow was also rated as a likely counterbalance to Iran.

However, the author admits, the Arabs did not understand something: Mr. Putin sees a much greater value precisely “in the Middle East instability”, and therefore he will continue to support B. Assad.

In this regard, the author recalls the frequent visits to Russia by US Secretary of State John Kerry, who was talking about a “political transition” in Syria. “All these efforts were unsuccessful for understandable reasons,” the observer mocks. Yes, and why would? Russia, like Iran, has invested a lot in the Assad regime, the author notes. Russia has a naval base in Tartus, through Syria Putin’s power is directly designated in the region. Putin will never risk throwing Assad.

As for Obama, he “chose by default” the power of Russia and Iran in the Middle East. He apparently believes that the publicist remarks that "a powerful Iran will help stabilize the region in the absence of American influence." Washington’s deal with Tehran on the nuclear program is part of the White House’s strategy. And therefore it is clear: Washington will not “settle” the Syrian crisis.

As a result, the Middle East is “in complete disarray”, and Europe is going crazy with refugees. The laws of the European Union leave the doors of member countries open to those who flee from Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, and so on. Putin will not resolve the conflict in the Middle East, since Putin’s interest is not “to maintain European democracy and freedom.” This, the author believes, proves the example of Ukraine.

The next US president, the analyst admits, could help Europe solve its problem, but he will receive full power only in January of 2017. And at that time it may be too late!

Nikolas Gvozdev (Nikolas K. Gvosdev) in "The National Interest" went further than Jed Babbin and suggested to Washington to take an example from Moscow.

Russian ships and airplanes continue to deliver cargo to Syria, and it becomes clear that Vladimir Putin is thus giving the world several "geopolitical messages." According to the author, there are five of them.

The first. Statements about the “collapse of Russia” are greatly exaggerated. In other words, the opinions that Western sanctions plus a drop in oil prices, combined with a slowdown in China’s economic growth have led the Kremlin to the brink of precipice, are premature. Of course, Russia does not have such global opportunities to use military force abroad, but it is fully capable of sending troops to Syria and is still one of the few selected states that can support their military forces outside their territory. And today, the Kremlin makes it clear, the analyst believes that he plans to take an active part in setting the agenda in the Middle East.

The second. Putin makes it clear that he will not passively accept the position of Washington "by default", which is that the removal of tough strong power will lead to long-term stability in the Middle East. While the United States and Europe are “discussing their next steps” about the crisis and migrants, Russia is ready to act through direct military assistance to Assad, who is fighting the Islamic State (after all, this is the best way to resolve the conflict). And Putin is not interested in asking the "permission" from the West or waiting for a "blessing" from Washington.

Third. Russia is increasingly confident in its position in Ukraine. Violence is a thing of the past, the cease-fire regime is more or less being held. At the same time, the current internal political and economic problems of Ukraine say: there is no big “maydan-breakthrough”, the country has not at all taken the path of “close integration with the Euro-Atlantic world”. Instead, everyone sees a protracted crisis. And in a “frozen” conflict, Moscow retains significant leverage.

Fourth. The Kremlin is strengthening its red lines. Just as Moscow did not allow Kiev to defeat the Ukrainian "separatists" last summer, today it makes it clear that there will be no overthrow of President Assad by the West in Syria. With the increase in the number of Russian ground forces and the strengthening of the capabilities of the Assad air defense system (according to media reports), the risk for any kind of US or NATO actions against the Assad government has "increased dramatically."

The fifth. Russia's readiness to put “boots on the ground” in Syria (as opposed to Washington’s attempts to wage war with someone else’s hands and the unwillingness of US key allies to assume a significant burden of participation) speaks at once about several goals. The Kremlin’s behavior reassures Russian partners: Moscow is ready to fulfill its obligations, even if it costs her dearly in terms of resources, people's lives and reputation. This did not go unnoticed in Egypt and Azerbaijan, the author writes, where the authorities questioned "American commitment" to their interests. For the Middle Eastern states that oppose Russian policy in Syria, Putin’s decision to raise the stakes may lead to an overestimation of values: in monarchies they may decide that it’s not Moscow that should be looking for a viable solution, but Moscow. Especially since in the United States on the nose elections.

Thus, we add on our own, all roads now lead to Moscow. Comrade Asad is counting on Moscow, and with it people from Tehran. There are rushing Arabs from the leading states of the Persian Gulf, who were previously looking for "help" and "stability" in the United States. Finally, having made mistakes in the Middle East policy and finally entangled in it, the American envoys are flying to Moscow. Nothing fancy: the ordinary Third Rome.

    Could America not be horrified, but at least ponder why it constantly “at some point something goes wrong”?

    And it also seems to me that they first unwound the flywheel of the new Cold War and the arms race, and then, like in that Twix advertisement, “E-mine, what did I do?” Traditionally they screeched, as it had already happened more than once. To fight with Russia-it's not for the Indians to distribute plagued blankets to you ...

              To be able to, you need to want. Gaddafi betrayed acting President Medvedev, declaring him a handshake. Instead of imposing VETO on the bombing of Libya, the popularly plush imposed VETO.
              And Hussein is a former agent of C.R.U. He clashed with Iran. For some reason, he brought troops into Kuwait and poisoned its citizens with chemistry. Shoals himself ripped and necha regret him.

        Yes, it’s not - slurping the burnt porridge brewed with mattresses and their Geyropei puppets is just a geyrope and not a full spoon but a huge scoop - I’m sure that it will soon blaze there unnaturally - millions of refugees from the countries they destroyed do not run there to work, but to to receive (they have every right) what they lost at home

            I would (maybe) agree with the afftor about the "source of instability", but look - the war in Syria has been going on for 4 years, the Assad government has been fighting on 2 fronts (pro-American "rebels" and ISIS), but still holds on (it’s clear that with help, but still). how bad the American-European fairy tales about the “anti-people al-Assad regime” are not good - to fight for 4 (!) years you need the support of your own people - you cannot drive them into trenches by force. and show me a dictator for whom the people would fight for 4 years? refugees from Syria are not fleeing from Assad - they are fleeing ISIS (which cuts everyone in a row)

      - This is the policy: No country in the world, with the exception of the vanquished and signing the act of unconditional surrender, has never recognized the fallacy of its actions.
      The principle of the Naglokson policy states: "Never admit the fallacy of your actions, otherwise you will lose face and lose influence. Persist in defending your point of view, even if it leads to death. The main thing is that others die in your place."

      This event will occur in speed. Not the fact that the state can resist. But GDP can be trusted. His actions are not at odds with words. How much time has passed.

      And the low standard of living of the population, precisely with this constitution and the unmanaged banking system, is precisely connected.

    Of course, it is flattering to consider such a political alignment to be accomplished for Russia. But, not everything is so smooth. Of course, Russia is a powerful political player in the world (as if the United States and the EU did not belong to it). If Russia is pressed by sanctions, then it means something! Russia is gradually but gaining its political points in the competition process with the West. And the West realizes that it failed, not only to crush Russia, but to neutralize its political influence in the world. The Old and New Worlds will have to make adjustments to their political ambitions, since Russia's geopolitical interests must also be taken into account!

    The author’s imagination beats over the edge, and with what kind of "fright" does the US come running to bow to the Kremlin? Well, those who came to need “points” to come, all the same, there’s an election race, and as for all the sheikhs there, let me remind you if they bought kerosene from the USSR in the 30s and even seemed to be awarded some sheikh with the order " Labor Red Banner "and what is the result? After WW2, all in a row ran to the USA and didn’t they “help” finish off the economy of the USSR? So gentlemen, they are not far from allies, but like a burdock or fleas on dog hair! And do not assume that the GDP and its Chinese friend will immediately abandon all affairs and tackle the heaps piled up by America and its allies in Africa and the Middle East, and let them eat their "works." And do not flatter yourself, dear author, to what someone told someone about the weakening of the Russian threat, this is just to “divert” your eyes! They were never our friends and never will be!

    All of course hurt ourselves, we all bend and put on sight.
    Only in our country, such a feeling, everything is being prepared for the All-Russian Maidan.

    Inside the country, elections to the local authorities were held.
    An attempt was made to "touch the wet udder" of the electorate for its willingness to change the party in power.
    Suddenly, as hell out of the box in droves in small half-forgotten regions, candidates for the heads of local administrations appeared - everything was completely indigenous to the second generation, all polls were businessmen and sportsmen from the 90s with the corresponding support teams, again from the other regions massively brought for the role observers and agitators. All strictly representatives of the opposition parties.
    What populist nonsense the “candidates” were carrying with it, one had to hear.

    Apparently, the calculation was made on the deteriorating economic condition of citizens and on the potential growth of protest sentiments. Apparently some forces decided that the time had already come, it was time to begin to seize power on the ground.
    However, it didn’t work, the people were again not the same.

      You see. So in Russia, the information war takes place in line with the nationally oriented victory.

      GDP has always said that only by legitimate methods, through elections, referenda. And the choice is up to the people. And now we have to do it now otherwise, a civil war.

      So how to live lacks any consent. But to mean it is necessary to change the main law.

    What does not fit into the formulas available to the worldview of Obama and his masters.

    One can, of course, assume that Putin has no "great strategy." But if there is a global policy strategy for Russia, but Putin does not publicize it and does not promote it, implementing it silently, then acting on the assumption that there is no “strategy” will entail errors and damage.

    This is precisely what the United States faced when Crimea unexpectedly withdrew from the fake “independent” Ukraine to Russia, as a result of which part of the forces of the 6th US fleet in Sevastopol and strike aircraft at the Crimean airfields turned out to be frustrated, but in Crimea everything seemed to be it seemed miraculously ready for this.

    And this kind of unpredictable damage to the United States and the states that they have crushed will continue to be faced, since mutually exclusive strategies (concepts) and strategies for their implementation fulfill the following relationship: that in one concept is the goal, in the other is the management error that must be eliminated ( if possible together with its generator).

    In life, this ratio is expressed as a collapse in the achievement of the intended goals or their complete depreciation when they are achieved due to the managerial successes of the opposite side.

    Obama, like all adherents of liberal internacism, does not understand the following:

    - Bourgeois liberalism as an ideology and liberal market capitalism based on it as a practice (including capitalism with elements of state planning and state regulation of markets) were sentenced to liquidation by the “world backstage” in the first half of the XNUMXth century.

    With the aim of eliminating them on a global scale, Marxism was created and spread as a secular atheistic version of the same biblical project of the enslavement of mankind, of which bourgeois liberalism is one of the ideological shells.

    - The Marxist project was led into a dead end by the efforts of the Bolsheviks, as a result of which the “world backstage” had to be closed. This was expressed in the elimination of the USSR and the world socialist system.

    But this does not mean that the death sentence was abolished in relation to the liberal market economic model - suicidal for humanity due to the generation of its global biosphere-social economic crisis.

    The death sentence will be realized by other means that go beyond the understanding limited by liberal-individualistic nonsense.

    I do not know what the vision of Russian politics is. It looks like the principle of our Ministry of Emergencies: when it happens, then we'll come. Syria is destroyed and it will take years to restore, Ukraine is essentially occupied by the United States. NATO is already in the Baltic states, a stream of drugs is rushing from Afghanistan. And essentially only assurances and declarations from the TV screens sound, where shows with Ukrainian nationalists have become just daily. That's just the opinion of people about these people does not change. So propaganda stalled. In my opinion, it’s time to more realistic look at the world, including the concept of the “Third Rome”. The fourth, as you know, does not happen!

    I do not know what the vision of Russian politics is.

    And what is there to think, it’s all in the spirit of “manual” management of the country, which our “dear” oligarchy uses through his representatives in the government and who is forced to use the GDP, because he came to power with a group of comrades thanks to them. at first it was the correct behavior of GDP, comrades, but the current aggravation of the situation in the world requires a different approach to management and other instruments. To repulse the Western "partners", a greater concentration of the country's finances in the hands of the state is needed, by eliminating the Finnish oligarchs, submission The Central Bank to the government, not the IMF, organizing new forms of ownership of enterprises. The state monopoly is also not everywhere suitable, but a significant part of the energy and gas and oil production should be in the hands of the state. It is also necessary to review the forms of managing regions whose budget is suffocating from the content of the exorbitant number of officials, who, moreover, are in most cases the usual ballast and are not actually in charge of management! Finance to build the Russian Federal Republic, and not to rot in the Russian Oligarchic Federation! The changes are ripe and the time has come for their implementation, otherwise the external oligarchs will be able to negotiate with "our" oligarchs and then all our natural resources that are the property of the people of Russia (according to the Constitution of the Russian Federation) will still flow to the developed West, dreaming of having it all in a freebie. And "our" oligarchs have profits incomparable with the size of rent, hi driven by them to the budget of the Russian Federation.

    General conclusions may be correct. But the arguments of Western experts are clearly far-fetched, especially with the declared boot in Syria, Putin will not allow a new Syrian Afghan. This is our country has already passed. Help is yes. There is only one conclusion - the crisis on the BV is being solved in SYRIA. If successful, the continuation is “zeroing” ISIS. A further resolution of the crisis lies with the Arab comrades; this is most likely the “final solution of the Jewish question,” in the language of Adolf Aloizovich. Confirmation of this you all see in the reaction of our unforgettable "chosen" partners. From the so-called state of "Israel".

    I do not agree with the term: "Moscow - The Third Rome" It was precisely this formulation of the question that ruined Byzantium.
    However, the author admits, the Arabs did not understand something: Mr. Putin sees a much greater value precisely “in the Middle East instability”, and therefore he will continue to support B. Assad.
    This pearl more characterizes Anglo-Saxon politics, for which instability is more beneficial. The history of Russia-Russia suggests that the Russians always ended the war. Therefore, support for the B. Assad regime has a slightly different motivation. Syria did not leave Russia in the "dashing nineties" former Syrian leader H. Assad did not leave Russia. Now Russia is not abandoning Syria in difficult times. The collapse of the B. Assad regime will entail a major destabilization of the region, and the biomass driven into ISIS will go on a trip to the republics of the former USSR. In this case, many are interested in maintaining a secular regime in Syria. Oddly enough, even Israel. Because in the event of the fall of Syria, he will also have a hard time. And so now B. Assad is it a good thing to grind this biomass well. And it is more profitable for Russia to help him, especially Syria is a long-standing strategic partner and ally of Russia. Since it is easier to do it with B. Assad’s hands than to have a problem in Central Asia.
