Go to war on Russia

48
Washington politicians no longer hide their aggressive theses, thus demonstrating that there is one small step from the cold war to the hot one. Recently, a conference on foreign American policy was held in Washington. Her motto was words about "realism and restraint." However, one speaker said that the White House needed to show the world a “big cudgel”, and another participant suggested that the United States realize its “mission” and help other countries “in their struggle for freedom”. The main object of criticism of both gentlemen was, of course, Russia.




On the website of the American alternative press "The Unz Review: An Alternative Media Selection" new article Philip Giraldi.

The author previously worked for the CIA, and now holds the position of executive director of the United States National Interest Council (the Council for the National Interest).

According to the expert, “something very strange” is currently happening in Washington.

Recently, Giraldi participated in the Washington conference on the theme of “realism and restraint”, devoted to a broad reform of the US foreign policy. Most of the reports more or less corresponded to the stated agenda, but there were other gentlemen who spoke not about restraint, but about its opposite.

Giraldi finds it strange, for example, that one of the speakers said: For the sake of establishing its place in the world, the United States must "hold a big club". Another panelist argued that the main “mission” of the American people was “to help other countries in their quest for freedom”.

Both speakers had in mind the US foreign policy towards Russia.

The author is very surprised by something. How could people talk about this at a conference on “restraint”? On the other hand, is it any wonder if such reports come up when both Republicans and Democrats give similar speeches during election debates? Nationalism and, moreover, American “exclusivity,” is the best-selling product at all times; He briskly goes to the political market in any era.

Recently, however, these theses have acquired a taste of militancy. And this is just amazing, the expert believes. Do you know why? Because only one presidential candidate served at one time in the armed forces, and that was there ... a lawyer. Shortly speaking, weapons now in the US, the hawks, who have no idea what an army is, are ready to rattle.

For example, a potential candidate from the Republican Party, Carly Fiorina, recently explained how she would “figure it out” with Putin: “One of the reasons why I would not now speak with Vladimir Putin is that we are conducting a dialogue with him weak position in which were due to the actions of this administration (Obama administration. - O. Ch.). That is why I would refrain from talking with him for a while, but would do something else. I would start strengthening and re-equipping the Sixth fleet under his nose, as well as the restoration of the missile defense program in Poland. I would arrange aggressive military maneuvers in the Baltic countries: he (Putin. - O. Ch.) Must learn that we will protect our NATO allies ... And I would also probably send several thousand of our troops to Germany. No, not in order to start a war, but in order to be sure: Putin realized that America is faithful to its allied duty ... We must create a no-fly zone in Syria, because Russia cannot tell the United States when and where our flights should fly aircraft. Finally, we have allies in the Arab Middle East, and they know that the IG threatens them, but they must see the support of the leader, the support of the United States ... After all, we have the most powerful military force in the world, and everyone knows about it. ”

Mr. Ben Carson added his “two cents” to this: “... we have to admit that Putin is really trying to extend his influence throughout the Middle East. There will be his base. And we have to confront him there, this is our effective path ... What we have been doing up to now is very inefficient, but we cannot take it and simply retreat from our path. We should look at it on a much more global scale. We are talking about global jihadists. And about their desire to destroy us and destroy our way of life. So we need to talk about how to make losers out of them, right? Because otherwise they can get a lot of influence ... And I think in order to make them look like losers, we must destroy their caliphate. Look, where is the best place to do this? In Iraq. There, in Anbar, there is a large deposit of energy resources. We need to take it away from them. And take the land from them too. We could do it, I think, easily. I chatted with several generals here ... And then we would move on. "

Senator Marco Rubio also voiced his ideas: “I think the world is getting stronger and better when the United States is the strongest military power in the world ... I have never met Vladimir Putin, but I know enough about him to conclude: - gangster. (“I never met Vladimir Putin, but I’m gangster.”) We can say that he heads mainly organized crime that governs a country whose size of economy is 2 trillion. dollars. And he is rapidly creating his military machine, despite the catastrophe in the economy. In geopolitics, he understands only power. And every time he speaks anywhere in the world, be it Ukraine or Georgia, or now in the Middle East, he does it in the light of the weakness of the enemy ... Our allies in the region do not trust us. For God's sake, in the Middle East there is only one pro-American democracy, practicing free enterprise, the state of Israel. And we have a president who is less respectful of the Israeli Prime Minister than the Ayatollah in Iran ... And we have an interest there, and this is why ... All these radical terrorist groups ... they will come to us. They recruit Americans through social networks. And they don't hate us because we just support Israel. They hate us because of our values. They hate us because our girls go to school. They hate us because women in the United States drive cars. ”

And here is Governor Jeb Bush. His election campaign is dim and worthless, and he tries to catch up by making hasty statements. According to him, Obama does not believe in the American leadership. Bush is confident that Washington should create a no-fly zone in Syria and "support the remnants of the Free Syrian Army." Without American leadership in any country in the region, the entire region begins to “change its priorities,” Bush believes. “Tragedy” seems to him that Iraq and other countries are currently engaged in a dialogue not with the United States, but with Russia. After all, "not so long ago, Russia had no influence at all in the region." In short, the United States needs to “lead in all directions.”

The brains of these talkers Giraldi calls "tabula race" (clean board). In his opinion, the crowd, listening to these types, has such low intelligence that it allows clogging their skulls with complete nonsense.

The coolest of all, of course, Carly. Her words are pure poison; she is ready to start a war. She was going to shoot Russians on the ground and in the air. But why? Well, so that the Americans can fly wherever they want, with irony interprets its aggressive statements Giraldi.

In his own way, and Ben Carson is cool. He needs to be given the first prize for the simplest scenario of defeating the IG. Just take away the oil from the militants, and there will be no “caliphate” at all.

As for the speeches of Jeb Bush, the expert is brief: he writes that the next Bush “seems to share the gift of scratching with his brother”.

Willingness to fight with the Russians, and at the same time with the Iranians, more than once surfaced in debates. It is as if the war with Iran will become an “easy walk” ... And the war with Russia! Putin can inflict tactical nuclear and the first. And this will immediately lead the war to a “completely different level,” the expert believes. Here we will have to talk about the "disaster". The Russians, even if they were limited to military targets, could in a short time be able to destroy vulnerable US satellite communications systems on which the American armed forces depend. One of the leading military analysts at the same time points out that the Russian army is much better suited for a land war than the more expensive army of the United States. Colonel Douglas MacGregor claims that US troops are likely to be destroyed.

Meanwhile, let us add, Russia is not an enemy of the United States and does absolutely nothing to become such in the future. It was not Russia that surrounded Europe with bases, but on the contrary, the United States and NATO are showing their aggressive intentions. Moscow did not “annex” the Crimea, but agreed with the will of the local citizens, established by referendum. In Syria, the Russians destroy the IS militants who threaten the United States in the same way that they threaten Russia.

Another thing is that the hegemon intends to remain a hegemon, and without his permission, no one on the planet can utter a word. Potential presidential candidates voiced this thesis, forgetting that a nuclear war could happen as a result of such propaganda. And politicians can bury themselves. Understand that they are hampered by empty heads, which fit to fill with sawdust.

      They will not understand one thing and cannot understand this, Russia is no stranger to being surrounded from almost all sides, from ancient times and sow the day, and if a mess begins, people quickly come to a state of combat readiness at all levels. History has confirmed this more than once. Even Bismarck in the 19th century said "Russia is dangerous due to the meagerness of its needs", so it is, who served knows, but the American needs a dry closet at least and much more. And there is the main difference, in the Soviet Russian Army, the order is not discussed but is being carried out, period! And they do not, I mean, a soldier can weigh the pros and cons and refuse to fulfill. And here is another phrase of the same Bismarck, and I think there is some truth in it that needs to be known and remembered, especially at the present stage, "The Russians cannot be defeated, we have seen for HUNDREDS of years. But you can instill false values, and then they will win themselves "that has recently been trying to instill in the current young generation. As I was born and raised in the USSR, I think so, We need to remember and honor the History of Our Vast, Invincible and Multinational Motherland. I am Kazakh, I live in Kazakhstan, but I am also with Russia in Heart and Soul, and the Russian People are My Friend and Brother. I want to remind the words of the Russian commander "Whoever comes to us with a sword, will die by the sword, Russia has stood and will stand on that" And millions more people who know and remember our common history will confirm my words, from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok !!

    This is strange. This must be mildly expressed by stupid people in order to carry such nonsense. The states now resemble Hitler in the thirties, who also wanted to own the whole world and imagines himself to be something exceptional. What he finished everyone knows, but the price, of course, is high. The only difference is that this war is likely to destroy the planet and all living on it.

    the main "mission" of the American people is to "help other countries in their quest for freedom."

    The fruits of this "help" are really visible in the example of Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and other countries where the United States poked its nose. Therefore, with such statements, everything is clear
    only one presidential candidate served in the armed forces at that time, and even that was there ... a lawyer

    It’s good to build a cool superman from yourself, managing other people's lives and not having basic concepts in military affairs. The fact that the United States is a world evil was not said only by the lazy. And evil must be fought.

    what Hmm ... a bad case.

    The striking factors of a ground nuclear explosion are:

    air shock wave (50%);
    light radiation (35%);
    penetrating radiation (4%);
    radioactive contamination (10%);
    electromagnetic pulse (1%).
    We are talking about an air explosion (like Hiroshima) at an altitude of about 1 kilometer of a XNUMX megaton atomic bomb.
    Time: 0s. Distance: 0m. Initiation of a nuclear detonator explosion.
    Time: 0.0000001c. Distance: 0m Temperature: up to 100 million ° C. The beginning and course of nuclear and thermonuclear reactions in a charge. A nuclear detonator with its explosion creates the conditions for the start of thermonuclear reactions: the thermonuclear combustion zone passes by a shock wave in a charge substance at a speed of the order of 5000 km / s (106 - 107 m / s) About 90% of the neutrons released during reactions are absorbed by the bomb substance, the remaining 10% fly out out.
    .... tratata ..
    Time: 1,6c. Distance: 1750m Temperature: 10 thousand ° C. Radiation approx. 70 gr The tank crew dies within 2-3 weeks from an extremely severe radiation sickness. Complete destruction of concrete, reinforced concrete monolithic (low-rise) and earthquake-resistant buildings of 0,2 MPa, shelters built-in and detached, designed for 100 kPa (type A-IV or class 4), shelters in the basement of multi-storey buildings.

    And how are we going to survive.

    The author is right. Kennedy and Roosevelt are now spinning in coffins. A generation of politicians who understood when to use military force, and when not, was a thing of the past. America forgot what a real war is. Pawnbrokers are in power, accustomed to tackling issues with money and brought up in schools, where they were hammered out that the States won two world ones. And you can’t explain to them what blood is.
    We also have usurers in power. But our people at least remember from which war their great-grandfathers did not return and they know at what price the victory in Chechnya got. Someone himself served in that Soviet army. So not everything is hopeless.

    In my opinion, it is high time to transfer the battlefield to the territory of the enemy and use the already well-known methods and methods of struggle applied by the "lamp of democracy" in their territory. The concept of freedom has been interpreted very freely lately, especially by the "beacons of democracy", while the countries of the West are engaged in sucking their asses our slave owners, we need to activate the underground in the center of the spreading chaos in the world and find elements of resistance in Europe itself to the current state of affairs.

    All the threatening rhetoric has already sounded from some American politicians earlier during the Cold War. We have already forgotten this in the country. But it was all there. True, then there was an objective reality that NATO was opposed not only by the USSR with its enormous military power, but also by the Warsaw Pact. In addition, many politicians still remembered that war, by no means a computer war, in which there were huge casualties on both sides. Now the situation is somewhat different. All this makes us think about revising the entire global foreign policy of our state, finally decide who is a friend and who is an enemy and will always be, look for allies, change financial and social policies, and the economy. If we have capitalism in our country, it happened, then it should be popular, and not for the elite. So far, for some, the soup is liquid, while for others the pearls are small, which does not at all strengthen our state.
