Do the drums of war thunder? ("Latvijas Avize", Latvia)

Do the drums of war thunder? ("Latvijas Avize", Latvia)


Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov in a satirical novel “The Golden Calf” described a fire in a communal apartment called “Voronya Slobodka”. Its inhabitants only said that there would be a fire in the apartment, so they hurried to protect themselves and slowly carried out valuable things. “The fate of the house was sealed. He could not burn. And indeed - at twelve o'clock at night he was engulfed in flames at the same time in six places, ”wrote Ilf and Petrov with characteristic humor.

It is not necessary to be an outstanding expert in black or white magic in order to know that events can be “told”. And therefore it becomes quite uncomfortable when from time to time predictions are heard about the almost inevitable war between the West and Russia. Well-known experts speak about this (for example, Garry Kasparov, Zbigniew Brzezinski), in a recent interview with Latvijas Avīze this opinion was also expressed by businessman Vilis Vitols. In turn, in the Russian media since the beginning of the Ukrainian conflict there are headlines - "This is the beginning of the Third World War."

It seems that in the West, especially in Europe, they no longer understand what it really means - war. Three generations grew up without war, and the latter is more likely to be associated with a computer game. A similar spiritual situation reigned in Europe a hundred years ago at the beginning of the First World War. On the streets of Berlin, Vienna, London, Paris, St. Petersburg and Riga, people happily embraced when they heard the cries of the boys selling newspapers: “War! The war has begun! ” The first Latvian riflemen were escorted to the front, as if on a romantic walk, the mood of euphoria prevailed among the people: “We throw these Fritz hats!”.

In most Western countries, they switched to a professional army. If you want to fight - this is your free choice, your “bread”, I pay my taxes for it. A professional army has many advantages, but there are some disadvantages. If a young man cannot wake up in time in the morning, and before leaving home he forgets to make the bed (which they would surely have been pressured in the barracks) - this is not a big problem. Much more serious is the alienation of the people from their army.

It creates a frivolous atmosphere in which politicians are tempted to "play around" with the war. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair recently apologized to the American television channel CNN for starting the war in Iraq: “Then we didn’t realize what this would lead to. Everyone who had a hand in the Iraq war is responsible for the current events in the Middle East. ” Recall that the invasion of Iraq was supported by the then ruling coalition of Latvia. The consequences we are feeling today are quite real: more than a million dead, destabilization of the whole region, the civil war in Syria, the formation of the disgusting "Islamic State" and the refugees are now at the door of Latvia.

In Europe, there is a kind of dissociation from the ideas of militarism, but in Russia something is emerging like a new religion, a new cult, in the center of which is the Armed Forces. For about fifteen years (more precisely, since Vladimir Putin came to power), the Russian state-controlled media has been very thoughtful, sophisticated and, it must be admitted, successful propaganda, in which the army is portrayed as a defender, a unifier of the people, a keeper of stories, national spirit, etc. In numerous films, soldiers, a war veteran, or an officer with a family, are fighting evil — the mafia, corrupt officials, and simply wins against ill-wishers. St. Andrew’s flag and St. George ribbon became more popular symbols than the three-color state standard. Now in Russia, the biggest competitions for admission are not in prestigious universities, but in cadet corps. Putin often quotes the words of Alexander III that Russia has only two allies - the army and the navy.

In general, it seems that the world began to play with fire, in some places it is conscious, and in some places because of ignorance or childish innocence. A small consolation: an article by a certain military analyst came across the Internet who asserts: in the event of a nuclear war, the potential targets of Russia will most likely be not the capitals of the Baltic states, but Warsaw ...

    The media controlled by the Russian state are very thoughtful, sophisticated and, it must be recognized, successful propaganda, in which the army is portrayed as a defender, unifier of the people, the keeper of glorious history, national spirit, etc.

    And in the Western media their armies are probably portrayed as enemies, renegades, and generally alien bodies. That's what Russia is like, all across the wool.

      Many prophecies, though similar to the immortal,

      "" Do you think that Emperor Emperor will leave all this like that? Poor you know him. War with the Turks must certainly be. “They killed my uncle, so here you go!” The war will be, it's like giving a drink. Serbia and Russia will help us in this war. There will be a fight! "- so after the assassination of the heir to the Austrian throne, Archduke Ferdinand Schweik prophesied with a beer in his hand.",

      Nevertheless, I want to know - and who needs it? And everyone understands everything perfectly well - War, or just rumors of war, are always needed by tycoons from the military-industrial complex and whose politicians they cover, here are corrupt journalists, specialists of all stripes, experts, etc., sitting on the handouts of these gentlemen and tossing a wood pole into the fire!

      By the way, now I wrote a phrase from the famous novel “The adventures of the brave soldier Schweik” and remembered that he had created Hasek in Kiev, in the house at ul. Vladimirskaya, 36 ... The names of the Ukrainian capital are now created by the West as an artificial outpost of inciting hatred of Russia! If only the politicians of this West and some Ukrainian leaders would read this novel again and think about it ... I will allow myself to finish my post in the same way with a quote from this wonderful novel:“It’s not easy - to get into somewhere. Everyone knows how to get in, but to get out - this is the real art of war. When a person climbs somewhere, he must know what is going on in order not to sit in a puddle called disaster .... " laughing

          It turned out a bit allegorical ... I mean that a lot of experts divorced - predictors discussing a global war or here are articles of this type, as if warning, but still about the war and it is with Russia, and that Russia is to blame for everything, most of which are very delusional in nature, as well as Schweik’s prediction ... Nevertheless, all of this kind of article is in the hands of the magnates of the military-industrial complex, since you can spin the flywheel of the arms race and row taxpayer money with a shovel! And the end of the post, I just remembered that Hasek wrote a novel in Kiev, which is quite symbolic for the current situation, and, as it were, he warned everyone with a quote from the novel that it’s good, it’s not good! hi

        Well, the author gave, a typical European national pacifist, probably did not notice the fascist-dressed pacifists in the Baltic and Okra schools, did not notice foreign troops near the borders of Russia, well, etc. they, gentlemen from the West, liked when the Russian army was broken and plundered, the "freedom-loving" Balts, who had long gone to the enlightened west, spat on the Russian interests with a smirk, and how all this camarilla was worried about the strengthening of Russia in terms of defense and it seems that it even scares to spit, yes and Russia can afford to simply not notice these mongrels.

      The article is complete nonsense and demagogy. The article is not about anything, or rather about what !? And the fact that the Russians allegedly provoke everyone to war by strengthening their army, as if others did not and do not, especially the United States bombed countries with weak (compared to their armies) armies. And the article says that Russia is making cult and propaganda out of the army and that Putin is quoting (apparently the Communist Alexander III) the Russian emperor. And NATO has not almost doubled and is not standing on the borders of Russia !? I am already silent that Russia is declared "enemy No. 1," the same Americans with the British. So what India, and that Greenpeace banned in the country as an organization threatening national security.

    A frivolous atmosphere is created in which politicians are tempted to “play around” with the war

    And by whom this atmosphere is created. It is necessary to have strong nerves, a cold mind and always take into account where we live, what we listen to and watch, commissioned by the backstage.

    The author began with the wrong premise, which is why all the other conclusions in the article turned out to be controversial: the fire in Voronoi Slobodka did not happen at all from talking about the fire, but because almost all (but that's another story) residents insured the property against fire . And everyone began to suspect others of the intention to set fire to the common house.
    Russia is not at all immune from a general fire, on the contrary, it is building up fire-fighting equipment.

      And for the uncles who will be with this stretch coupons - good.
      every war is first of all a redistribution of property on a state scale, a raider seizure, if you like. No one is safe from this.

        About the cut coupons and rejoice. I beg to differ. There may not be such heavenly places where you can "cut." The situation with the Great War is unpredictable in principle. Such options: the main players weakened each other to such an extent that some New Zealand, where you expected to sit out, was captured by Indonesia (a population of almost two RF) or someone from Latin America. Conducting analogues with the Second World War is a fundamental mistake, there will be nothing similar. The ideal military scenario for ANY player is highly unlikely. And in the "world backstage" fools are rare. I think they are not there at all. So it's not about coupons. The point, it seems, is in an attempt to reduce the population of the Earth by 5-6 times. By the way, US chemical disarmament is only by 2026. And this is a very effective tool against the vast masses of poorly armed people, when it is already possible to take off the mask and spit on non-combatants openly.

    The author is right that a generation of politicians has grown up who are not afraid of war. Tales that nuclear war is the end of the world are still in the heads of many non-combatants. But politicians and military leaders have long known that radiation falls off very quickly, after a year the background is not much higher than before the event. Hiroshima and Nagasaki rebuilt very quickly and have been living normally for decades. There will be no nuclear winter, the number of nuclear munitions has greatly decreased compared to the times when these models counted, and counted them for the case of undermining all nuclear warheads in Western Europe, and not according to a more realistic distribution.
    So, unfortunately, really fear does not stop those in power in the west.
    Of course, and without a fatal impact on the environment, it will be BP anyway. Hundreds of millions will die, and not only in Europe. Civilization will be discarded in its development for some years.

    Here it is issued. In the spirit of Baltic senility nationalism aspirated to the west. But just in case, I tried to designate for Russia the goal in Europe - Poland. It can be understood as a kind of excuse - we certainly hate you and throw mud at you, but we are a small country, therefore, in which case, you are please fucking around Poland.

I do not want to repeat the banalities, but historically it happened that the Russian Army has always DEFENSE its people and its FATHERLAND and this is not subject to discussion! But let this "home-grown" Baltic "expert" look back at his beloved West and what will he see there, but will see gangs of "Landsknechts" abundantly pouring blood on the so-called lands. "civilized countries", bonfires of the Inquisition and the villainy of the next "European Fuhrer", who are first raised and then "begged" Russia to "reassure" him!

Secondly: the article itself, as a hidden information weapon, was “forged” clearly not in the Baltic states, but you yourself know where! The article is minus, definitely!

    Worthless is the price of his apology.
    but in Russia something like a new religion is emerging, a new cult, in the center of which the Armed Forces.
    Or maybe pride for our Armed Forces is reviving, you look again, the profession of a soldier will be prestigious, and the manager will remain a slag.

    The intelligence of the people in Western countries has decreased significantly. They do not even represent the horrors of modern warfare. And when some regular NATO secretary broadcasts that war is coming, he does not even understand the minimal danger of such a war. Yes, after exchanging nuclear missiles in 10 days, you can wander around the radioactive territory without any particular danger of dying. But there are still nuclear plants, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, which will be fully operational in the first hours of the war. Cities will turn into solid blockages of broken brick and reinforced concrete reinforcement. All logistics will be broken. The people will simply begin to die out of starvation in large cities. Plus looters, just criminals, ready to rob and kill. After all, the entire regime of power will be violated.
    Is life really so burdensome for the western man in the street that hatred of Russia will make him live in the basement and eat poisonous foods. And those can end at any moment.
    Indeed, modern war cannot be compared with the First World War. There the rich did not suffer too much from the hardships of war. They had it all. But what will they have in a modern war?
    Apparently the stupidity of people is indestructible and does not depend on social status.
    As for Kasparov and Bzizhinsky. That first has a long-term progressive schizophrenia, and the second has senile senility.

    Many have lost the fear of war. There are many reasons, and "shooting" for the younger generation and propaganda. But, in my opinion, in Russia there is not such a generation that did not catch the burn of war. We must fight for peace with weapons in our hands, otherwise we will not live. I am a fierce opponent of war, but I shoot perfectly, a serious military specialty, still in reserve (age), and for there would be no oppression and destruction of my homeland, I will take up arms. This is such pacifism.

    For more than 10 years the Baltics have been living only at the expense of the Russian threat: they will not want Russia to conquer them, they will not have money from the main sponsors))

    "... in the event of a nuclear war, Russia’s potential targets will most likely be not the capitals of the Baltic states, but Warsaw ..." is the only common thought.

    I have already said, I repeat - the cynicism of society is going through the roof, as is the separation from reality. You don’t need to go far, as an example I’m citing my neighbor (my “darling” is my precious dad). It seems like a smart man, like not durak, even a doctor and even an honored doctor of Russia. And with patriotism and respect for their country, everything is in order. But something is wrong with him, or rather with that organ called the brain. It’s a direct anomaly. And that's why, as soon as the events in Ukraine happened, when the Crimea became ours and the world whistle began. He, on the next evening walk (we have such an exercise), it is important to puff out his cheeks and make meaningful rotations with his eyes, he said - there will be a war. Figase - I told him to such high-profile statements. You asked me well, at home everything is in order, did you quarrel with your wife? Eka my friend brought you that. But he is in no way oppressing his own - war, war, war. Three days later, I broke through, gave him a “snowstorm” at the very most I can not. I asked him, do you really imagine what WAR is? You, an adult, with such rapture "croak" on this topic. Do you really want war? You pancake sadomaso practice something quietly? After all, even when you utter this terrible word, you savor. And after all, it’s not just about war (although the term is simply not applicable here), you’re talking about war using nuclear weapons! You durak I asked him? Offended, stopped talking, and still. And I hear this often, but you start to interpret them logically, no sense. They look like ....... a

    Drove a minus! When half the world was destroyed, NATO and its bases rose in the same Baltic states, us, a certain Juris, associates with militarism !!! And in this situation it cannot be otherwise! We touched the West European shit with a toe of a boot and we had enough! And we are not at all happy with any kind of apology for anyone for actions similar to those that led to the non-existence of the once prosperous countries of B. Vostok! angry

    most likely, they will not be the capitals of the Baltic states, but Warsaw ... It will not be easier for you, and neither will we. Somewhere I read the interesting idea that ... now a generation has come to politics that has not made war, and therefore is so loud Faberge ... Indeed, Schroeder, Kohl, Andropov, Brezhnev did not have a healthy look at the war. They all seem to be some kind of computer game.

    "In general, it seems that the game began with fire in the world, in some places it is conscious, and in some places because of ignorance or childish naivety."

    And there is. That's just a rhetorical question - Who started this "game"?

    "A little consolation: an article of a certain military analyst came across the Internet, who claims that in the event of a nuclear war, Russia’s potential targets will most likely be not the capital of the Baltic states, but Warsaw."

    And when the war begins, it will not matter at all who will be the first, and who the next is enough for everyone, everyone will get ...

    It’s rich in the author’s head. Either he writes about alienation from the professional army in the countries of Europe, then here we have propaganda putting the army at the forefront. Well, if not alienation, then this is how it should be - both a defender and a liberator, etc. etc.

    In my opinion, at all times, the Army has been elite society! Observed in
    recent time positive trends in the media RUSSIA, eating a logical result
    politics in general. In my view of the article, there is a twofold feeling, sung

    The Baltic states (3 "... land" + Poland) are extremely flattered by the same born idea that they could be the seed for the third world war. Moreover, the politicians of these entities themselves (and a significant part of the population) were so convinced of the threat from the east that they were no longer able to think of anything else. However, three obvious things will not reach them in any way:
    a) as a way to escalate tensions with Russia - these places are ideally suited (but only as geographic territories, not countries);
    b) as a state, nobody needs them now (the EU’s dream is to wake up in the morning, but there are no “young members”);
    b) in the event of war, they disappear first, so as not to interfere (immediately with the whole bag - and with their statehood and independence).

    We want the least of all war - those who have already fought. I really like the picture that I will insert below - two worlds fit in its two halves. The world on the left does not deserve comments without a mat. The world on the right is very well known to me. One of the most vile memories from the “right” world was not my men who died, but as in 2001 I was driving in a hospital shishig, as usual, half asleep, the second playing cards, suddenly a blow, a crash, vomited completely, the left side was half lower , and a meter away from me the doctor broke my neck, I pulled her out of the kunga shishigi, tried to pinch her wound with one hand, and got entangled in the cord of the peem with my other hand, I jerked and didn’t understand what I wasn’t letting in, I thought it was okay, but I’m looking at between her fingers, bright-bright blood flows. I wanted to run away like that, my people are gone, there’s no need to lead the fight, but she clung to my hand and it was not clear that it’s worse to die myself or leave her like that. There was a dump for a minute, then it dawns that there is no shooting, and this is not an ambush, but an accident. And everyone was so happy that they even violated the tradition of beating muzzle drivers. And the doctor was cured.

    Warsaw is a large city in a large (by European standards) country, but insignificant as the target of the attack, military facilities can be attacked without touching the merchants and prostitutes. But with the Baltic “tigers” it’s more difficult! On their territory, it is more difficult to separate the bases and airfields from the heap of their surrounding towns. So, a certain "wonderful anal-itic" came across to the author. You, Juris Lorencs, would be better off not harnessing yourself to the Amerz squad, sitting quietly on the sidelines, and not the African-American “warriors” to invite you to your billets.

    A little consolation: an article of a certain military analyst came across the Internet, who claims that in the event of a nuclear war, Russia’s potential targets will most likely be not the capital of the Baltic states, but Warsaw ...

    I immediately remembered an old joke about how the Americans asked a question to the Armenian radio:
    - Which city of the USSR is the most beautiful?
    - Yerevan?
    - And what power is a nuclear bomb needed to completely destroy?
    - ...
    after a pause:
    - Sorry, we were wrong! The most beautiful city in the USSR is Tbilisi!
