What is dangerous sly NATO diplomacy

What is dangerous sly NATO diplomacyThe policy of the unrestrained expansion of the North Atlantic Alliance has turned this alliance from a guarantor of the security of its members, which is formally declared in NATO doctrinal documents, into a real and immediate threat to global security, including the security of each of the allies. With reference to some shared values ​​in NATO, states are adopted whose value orientation is often highly questionable. Such a “motley” list of participants makes the block more and more uncontrollable and gives its policy a high degree of unpredictability.


An example of criminal irresponsibility is the actions of Turkey - a NATO member since 1952 - against an aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Force, which took part in an operation against international terrorism in Syria, in which Russia and Turkey were considered partners. This event once again seriously tested the unity of the alliance, the system of shared values ​​declared by it and its readiness to support the actions of the state, whose unpredictable and adventurous policies put the world in danger of serious conflict.

The ability of NATO to control and bear joint and several responsibility for the criminal actions of its members is doubtful.

Remaining committed to the policy of double standards, NATO closes its eyes to the acquisition by Turkey of oil from ISIS terrorists, to deliveries from Turkey weapons terrorist gangs, which is regarded by international law as a direct support of international terrorism. However, international sanctions against Turkey were not adopted.

Recall that in the 1974 year, Turkey, without any reaction from NATO, occupied the northern part of Cyprus. Negotiations on the unification of the island, held under the mediation of the UN, have so far been fruitless. It is Turkey that periodically arranges armed provocations against Greece - NATO allies, putting at risk international stability and security.

However, Turkey, of course, is not the only or even the main violator of international rules. It follows in the wake of more serious international players: the United States and NATO itself, which unleashed aggression against Yugoslavia, destroyed Iraq and Libya. One of the consequences of such actions is the emergence of IS, a surge of terrorist activity, flows of refugees to European countries.

REASONS AND CONDITIONS OF NATO EXPANSION

The processes of expanding NATO and forming partnerships of the alliance are subordinated to a single plan and are carried out within the framework of a single set of mutually agreed goals, the resulting vector of which is aimed at establishing global US domination. At the same time, it is the American military and economic power that is dominant, ensuring the successful implementation of the entire range of necessary measures to globalize the alliance’s responsibility: the parameters of its military potential without American participation remain purely regional.

The expansion of geographic coverage is due to the desire to exercise political, economic, ideological influence on the states that are within the scope of coverage, using for this purpose the potentials of "hard" and "soft" power. Solving this problem implies creating an alliance with additional coordination, planning and control capabilities related to maintaining and building up individual and collective capacities to confront challenges, risks, hazards and threats, and promote their own values.

The practical realization of such opportunities is based on the consistent development, within the framework of the mutual obligations of the Allies, of the necessary infrastructure, the deployment of military forces and equipment, and the implementation of an appropriate information policy.

The main motive of expansion was the desire to take control of the West vast territories in Central and Eastern Europe and in the post-Soviet space and thereby prevent the emergence of new states (primarily renewed and strengthened Russia) that could pose a threat to the security of the US and NATO allies. At the same time, the United States sought to prevent the excessive independence of the European Union in the military sphere and led to the formation of the natocentric model of the world with the shadow dominance of Washington in it.

An important motive for supporting the expansion was the transformation of NATO during the 50 years of its existence into an extensive and influential bureaucratic structure with its own corporate interests, giving prestigious and well-paid work to a large number of civilian and military employees (at the headquarters of NATO there are about 4200 people, another 5200 people in other structures of the alliance).

In addition, a war broke out in the Balkans, in which the United States, Germany and other influential Western countries intended to achieve their own geopolitical goals under the pretext of the need to involve NATO in peacekeeping efforts. A weakened Russia could not be the center of attraction for the former allies, who proclaimed the course of return to Europe, which implied their entry into NATO and the EU.

STUDY ON THE EXPANSION OF NATO


The NATO expansion strategy and the geopolitical goals of this process were first presented in a concentrated form in the “Study on NATO Expansion”, prepared in September 1995 by the American corporation REND. The document substantiated the need to expand the functions and powers of the bloc due to the occupation of the geopolitical space left by a weakened Russia. The authors of the study, covering up the true goals and objectives of the strategy to create a new global security architecture controlled by the United States, outlined a vision of the prospects for expanding the alliance and the tasks of preparing and implementing this large-scale operation.

To deceit in the question of expansion, our Western "friends and partners" began even before the advent of research. Former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev recently recalled that “after the reunification of Germany in 1990, the Federal Republic of Germany, the USA and other Western countries promised him that“ NATO will not move to the East a single centimeter. ” But the Americans, he said, did not fulfill this promise, and the Germans showed indifference to this. “It is possible that they even rubbed their hands, rejoicing at how successfully they managed to inflate the Russians,” said the former Soviet president. Apparently, all the Russians had nothing to do with it, and the then incompetent and weak-willed leadership, who in fact played the role of traitors and grave-diggers of their country, managed to “inflate”.

However, it was the study that laid the foundations for the strategy of the American global domination project, part of which was to be NATO’s transition from a classical alliance that opposed ATS within the framework of the historical confrontation between the two socio-political systems to an organization with a broader set of military-political functions and an expanded zone of influence .

The study is focused on achieving several groups of goals.

The first group of goals envisages the creation of a kind of information and propaganda shell, designed to hide the true intentions of the West to form a global dominance model based on NATO. To this end, the document includes discussions about the new role of the alliance and the need to expand the organization, which in the post-Cold War period has become one of the pillars of the new Euro-Atlantic security architecture. The alliance’s determination to promote the preservation of the territorial integrity of European states, to prevent internal conflicts and the creation of lines of influence in Europe was emphasized.

At the initial stage, the expansion strategy focused participants of this process primarily on ensuring the compatibility of infrastructure facilities in the CEE countries with the aim of a possible substantial increase in the military capabilities of the bloc on Russia's western borders. The task was to prevent the Alliance from a kind of “drift” from the military-political to a greater degree of political structure, in favor of which after the end of the Cold War some influential European states came out. The United States saw this as the danger of the North Atlantic Alliance losing its capacity and set the task of turning NATO into an organization responsible for security not only in Europe, but in the world as a whole.

At the same time, a partnership mechanism with Russia was created, which was intended to disguise the anti-Russian orientation of NATO expansion. It was also taken into account that the presence of the Russian representatives in the partner structures of the alliance should have contributed to the formation of recent allies of the Department of Internal Affairs and the CIS countries to give an impression of Russia's supposedly rather calm attitude towards expansion and push them to take further steps towards rapprochement with the alliance. As the future showed, with far-reaching goals, Ukraine was included in the number of NATO’s privileged partners.

The document laid the foundation for the subsequent expansion of the functional sphere of NATO in several areas.

First, in the partner countries, a network of information missions of the alliance began to be created at an accelerated pace, which, in close contact with other nongovernmental organizations under the auspices of the United States, studied the internal situation and looked for ways to influence it in the direction necessary for the West, including the preparation of color revolutions, the phenomenon of which, according to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, "continues to evolve and is today becoming global."

Secondly, strengthening its position in key areas of communications, the alliance secured control over the global transport infrastructure and world raw materials. In addition, contacts were established on interaction in the information sphere and cyberspace.

The second group of goals was devoted to creating a broad institutional framework for cooperation of the alliance with the UN, the CSCE (then the OSCE), the WEU-EU in ensuring global and regional security. Here, NATO’s mood to act strictly within the framework of the UN Charter (which was repeatedly violated by the alliance, for example, in Kosovo) was strongly emphasized, to develop cooperation with the OSCE and the EU in resolving conflicts, conducting peacekeeping operations, and confronting the new PSIA.

Increasing the number of NATO members and expanding the alliance’s partnership zone to the countries of the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean, developing consultation and cooperation with other international, non-parliamentary and non-governmental organizations (Council of Europe, WEC Assembly, International Committee of the Red Cross, etc.)

The third group of goals had a purely practical orientation and was intended to provide training for candidate countries to join the alliance through the profound transformation of state structures, primarily the armed forces and infrastructure, to ensure the necessary compliance with NATO standards. An important role in achieving these goals was assigned to the Euro-Atlantic Cooperation Council (soon renamed the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, EAPC) and the Partnership for Peace Program (EAPC / PFP). The authors of the document frankly stated: “PfP has an important role to play in preparing potential new members for NATO membership,” and the EAPC / PfP will ensure continuity of influence from NATO on all partners in the bloc expansion process. NATO has proved to be true to its crafty policy. According to Evgeny Primakov, “we were then“ thrown up ”the idea that the Partnership for Peace was associated with the desire to find a way out of the most difficult situation with the goal of“ unleashing the idea of ​​NATO expansion ”. Here is such a wise “diplomatic” cunning.

Thus, the foundation was laid for NATO’s gradual globalization through coordinated actions by members of the enlarged alliance to strengthen the collective defense capabilities, improve the command and control system and alliances, develop conventional and nuclear forces, explore, finance and ensure interoperability. The contribution of alliance members to collective defense was envisaged under one of three options: “full participation in an integrated military structure and collective defense planning; not participating in an integrated military structure, but full participation in collective defense planning; not participating in an integrated military structure and collective defense planning with limited military cooperation. " After the return of France in March 2009 to the integrated military structure of the unit (excluding participation in the Nuclear Planning Group), the first of these options is fully implemented, which makes the alliance a powerful consolidated tool for implementing plans for global domination of the West, and the process of military-political and economic European integration puts the US under tight control.

At the same time, the document focuses on the interaction between NATO and the WEU, whose functions in the military sphere in the 2011 year passed to the EU. At the same time, NATO, in words recognizing institutional pluralism in Europe, purposefully implemented its own concept of “mutually reinforcing institutions”. As a result, the OSCE and the EU have been embedded in minor roles in the new NATO-centered architecture of European security, designed to meet US global ambitions.

RUSSIA AND NATO EXPANSION


The implementation of the NATO expansion strategy against the background of the weakening of Russia and the well-known internal turmoil in our country ultimately led to Russia pushing the periphery of the process of creating a new system for ensuring regional security in Europe. This was facilitated by the strategy chosen by the Russian leadership during the 1991 – 1993 period to support the “package” expansion of NATO by joining all countries of Eastern Europe, including Russia, which did not justify itself.

However, in the autumn of 1993, Russia is beginning to consistently oppose NATO expansion to the East. In November 1993, an open report was prepared by the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation, which noted the undesirability of joining the alliance of CEE and Baltic states. At the same time, the report acknowledged that “Russia has no right to dictate to the sovereign states of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) whether to join NATO or other international associations”.

In the RF Military Doctrine adopted in the same year, the expansion of military alliances was ranked among the main sources of military danger for Russia. Categorically stated the position of Russia Primakov in July 1996 of the year (at that time - the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia) in an interview with the British Foreign Minister: “There are two“ red lines ”regarding NATO expansion, which we will not go on. Vertical - a situation in which the military infrastructure at the expense of new members of NATO threatens our territory is unacceptable for us. Horizontal is for us unacceptable the participation in NATO of the Baltic states and other former republics of the Soviet Union. ” The future showed that it was not possible to withstand the categorically stated position.

As a result, the Russian leadership decided not to move away from a negative position regarding NATO expansion and at the same time to negotiate with a view to minimizing the consequences that threaten our security most and do not meet our interests. In other words, focus on the impact on the expansion process.

The general concept of US foreign policy on expansion issues was first outlined in the US National Security Strategy adopted in 1996. This document considered the expansion of the alliance through the traditional lens of ensuring the national interests and national security of the United States. In this context, the important unifying and stabilizing role of the alliance in Europe was emphasized, where under the auspices of the United States a peacekeeping operation is being carried out in the Balkans under NATO support, the first enlargement of NATO is being prepared within the framework of the PFP program, substantial progress has been made in the nuclear arms reduction negotiations with Russia, zones free of nuclear weapons have been created in Ukraine, in Kazakhstan and Belarus, with these states joining the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.

Serious attention was paid to the expansion of NATO in the official documents of the US Congress, in the reports of the State Department and the Pentagon, which addressed the composition of the first group of candidates for membership in the alliance, the timing and costs associated with their admission.

In general, the expansion of NATO and partnership programs in a pragmatic manner were viewed by the United States and by the majority of the bloc member states as an objectively necessary and justifiable process from the point of view of keeping the economic, military potential and infrastructure of the former Soviet allies in Central and East in the interests of the West Europe.

Russia's objections to expansion were virtually ignored. From a formal point of view, in order to influence the growing negative reaction of Russia to the steps of NATO expansion, she took some diplomatic maneuvers. Russia was invited to PFP. A joint permanent Russia-NATO Council was established, followed by the Russia-NATO Council. However, these forums failed to reach the level of joint decision making.

The Founding Act included assurances that NATO countries “have no intentions, plans or reasons for deploying nuclear weapons in the territories of new members”, and further that “under current and foreseeable security conditions, the alliance will carry out its collective defense and other tasks through ensuring the necessary compatibility, integration, and amplification potential, rather than through the additional permanent deployment of substantial combat forces. ”

The founding act is essentially a political declaration of intent, and not a legally binding document. At the same time, the signature of the President of the Russian Federation under him in fact testified that Russia had come to terms with the expansion of NATO.

NATO'S GLOBAL EXPANSION


Thus, one of the most significant steps in expanding NATO’s global reach before the end of 90 can be attributed to NATO joining new members and expanding partnerships, including relations with Russia and the former Soviet republics, and strengthening interaction with other international organizations.

The management of activities in these large-scale programs required a radical restructuring of the alliance's management system in the context of expanding global coverage, creating interaction mechanisms and managing a wide network of partners. Further steps in this direction are being taken within the framework of the alliance's programs - the Partnership for Peace, combined with the opportunities created by the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC / PfP), the Mediterranean Dialogue, the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative and the Initiative for Southeast Europe. Each of these programs contributes to the further expansion of the geographical coverage of NATO and its ability to influence events in areas remote from Europe.

Under the pretext of ensuring regional security, key importance is given to the deepening of relations between NATO and Ukraine. In accordance with the collective defense function, NATO’s military planning involves the deployment of forces and means of forward deployment and deployment near Russian borders, which makes Ukraine one of the key elements of Russia's containment strategy. At the same time, the issue of Ukraine’s membership in NATO does not depend on technical readiness, which is unlikely to be achieved in the foreseeable future, but is on a political plane and will be determined both by resolving the conflict in the southeast and by the general orientation of relations between Russia and the West. Under these conditions, the wording of the NATO 2008 Bucharest Summit of the year promising to “someday” return to the issue of Ukraine’s membership in NATO acquires a qualitatively new sound and should today be considered “as the fundamental basis for moving toward membership”. Only instead of “someday” the question “how and when?” Becomes actual.

In recent years, the new important vector for expanding NATO’s geographical reach has been the accelerated development of alliance ties with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. This trend is taking into account the actions of Washington to shift the center of gravity of US interests from Europe to the APR and provides for increased cooperation with the so-called contact countries - Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Pakistan and Japan. These steps are being carried out in line with the US strategy aimed at creating in the APR future regional quasi-military blocs with the participation of the United States. Special partnerships are established between NATO, Afghanistan and Iraq. Possibilities of military cooperation with China are being explored.

In the Central Asian region, NATO’s activities are focused on strengthening military-political interaction with the countries of Central Asia, which aims to enhance their ability to conduct joint peacekeeping, humanitarian, search and rescue, and other operations related to countering NATO security forces. The NATO strategy in the region was built around the task of using the transit capabilities and territories of the Central Asian countries to supply NATO troops and coalition forces in Afghanistan. At the same time, this task was gradually transformed into a long-term goal of finding opportunities to maintain its presence in the region after the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan in 2014.

The tasks of NATO in the Caucasus seem to be very similar, where the main external factor stimulating the alliance’s interest in the region is the growing struggle of the main actors of world politics for energy resources, as well as control over their transportation routes from Central Asia to Europe through the countries of the Caucasus.

Such actions are being carried out in line with the US strategic line on using NATO partnerships to spread its influence in the APR, in Central Asia and in the Caucasus simultaneously with attempts to weaken the positions of China and Russia there. At the same time, Washington intends to strengthen its influence on the key states of the region — Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, and to a certain extent — on India.

A course is being pursued for the further development of NATO’s comprehensive strategic interaction with the EU. The priority areas of relations are considered practical cooperation in operations, improving consultation mechanisms, building up coordinated mutual efforts in the area of ​​developing capacities and avoiding duplication in order to achieve maximum cooperation efficiency.

Special attention is paid to the development of relations with the European neutral countries - members of the EAPC / PfP. These are Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Austria, which actively joined the alliance's partnership initiatives at the beginning of the 90s. As a result, a high level of compatibility of the Armed Forces, the state and military planning systems of these countries with NATO standards is achieved, which in a certain situation may contribute to their rapid integration into the alliance.

In general, the current NATO partner policy is aimed at simplifying the process of forming partnerships and expanding the geographic coverage of the alliance. At the same time, the creation of operational mechanisms for flexible use in the interests of the alliance of partners' opportunities is carried out without expanding their access to political decision-making and planning of operations.

An important trend in the development of NATO can be considered as an increase in efforts to use the bloc as a global unifying structure for regional organizations providing international security, as well as direct links between NATO and China, Japan, India, Australia. To the same end, the NATO-EU strategic partnership is to be further developed, as well as the improvement of the legitimate legal framework for NATO-UN relations with the OSCE.

RESULTS OF NATO EXTENSION IN PROJECTION ON TODAY'S DAY

In full accordance with the NATO globalization strategy, the operational capacity of the alliance’s coalition forces is currently being built up, envisaged by the “NATO Action Plan for Enhancing Response Preparedness” approved in September 2014 at the September summit in the UK. NATO has already repeatedly written about this side of NATO activities.

Through Washington’s efforts, NATO is turning into an instrument designed to contain Russia and preserve US global dominance.

The results of the analysis of the state and development prospects of NATO as a model for ensuring regional security with clearly defined intentions to give the military-political bloc global coverage against the background of the implementation of the US strategy to contain Russia require the adoption of a wide range of measures to ensure the national interests and national security of our country.

With the transition of relations between Russia, the United States and NATO from intense rivalry to confrontation, it is important not to allow it to grow into a direct military clash, which can be achieved through reasonable compromises, including the search for an acceptable format of relations with the United States and NATO.

The West will make compromises, having only made sure that Russia has powerful armed forces, a modern economy and production. Another important condition is to ensure the Russian military-political, economic and cultural influence, primarily in the post-Soviet space, which can be achieved both by developing mutually beneficial relations on a bilateral basis, and by strengthening the EEU, CSTO, CIS and SCO. The basis for building up these two key components ensuring the country's reliable position in the modern architecture of international security is Russia's emergence from the crisis on a development trajectory with the inclusion of an innovative, high-tech sector of the economy, and increasing efforts to develop Siberia and the Arctic. To strengthen the influence, active foreign policy is also extremely important, including in the information sphere, which implies coordination and unification of the efforts of Russia's partners and allies.

In general, for Russia, the importance of relations with the West remains. At the same time, it is necessary to transfer a substantial part of foreign policy and economic efforts to other promising regions, located south of the country's borders, in the APR and Latin America. The decision of the Russian leadership to conduct a military-military operation to protect the national interests of our state in Syria was timely. Such a diversification of relations will expand the geographical framework within which various initiatives can be implemented in the interests of strengthening national security of Russia, ensuring the security of its allies and partners, and purposeful work is being carried out to form a new European and global security architecture.

      In the photo in article M60A3, this is a tank developed in 1957, it can not even be compared with the T-72, by the way this tank is still the main one in the Turkish army. So if the alliance expands using the tanks in the photo, we will only neigh with them.

        Judging by the tactics of NATO in their large-scale operations of recent times, they first demolish the enemy’s air defense, strike at command centers and important enemy infrastructure, gain air supremacy and only then begin to advance with their ground corps (in parallel) into the enemy’s body. the military potential of Turkey’s neighbors, it’s clear even to the hedgehog in the fog that Turkey is able to carry out the first stage of a deep operation (of course, with the help of intelligence-information, specially
        logistic, electronic, and fire support of the bloc’s allies) .Then the second stage of the deep operation is ground-based. So ... M60 may not even meet with the T-72. Because, having complete dominance in the air, they will throw forward once drones and reconnaissance satellites. And all the suspicious clusters and rustles in the dead of night will be burned mercilessly. The fire brigades of the U. helicopters and the Air Force in NATO have good contact with the ground forces. Therefore, no Turkish neighbor can turn the enemy back. P.S. I do not consider Turkey separately from NATO. Not a single gesture or step indicated that NATO wants to move away from the bully. On the contrary, they said about the political unity of the bloc, the Bundes will work from NATO territory and many other unpleasant trifles. NATO wants with its iron beak, dig a pipeline to itself and determine from Arabia and Persians. PP.SS. I deliberately did not take into account the situation on the Turkish-Armenian border.

          You describe the ideal scenario, suitable for the defeat of the troops of a small country with a population of 5-15 million people (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya) and without advanced defense and attack systems. Such a war, despite the Armageddon colorfully described by you and the fire swords of the horsemen of the Apocalypse with Russia, is unlikely to drive, because in addition to modern conventional weapons, we have an atomic Escalibur that can get any enemy in his den and inflict a smashing retaliation on him. In general, even the advanced NATO unit in the form of France, Germany and the UK has limited capabilities both in terms of ammunition, as well as logistics and other resources. The blowing out of Libyan air defenses has depleted the stock of BC of cruise missiles of such a country as France. In addition, part of the equipment is in a deplorable state, and the personnel are not ready to fight with the Russians at all. The Japanese army ceded to the American in WWII by no means in readiness to fight, but in the absence of resources, stupidly there was no fuel for transports to supply garrison islands in the Pacific Ocean and Polynesia.

            Yes, that's right, it is I who ascribe such scenarios to neighborsTurkey is useless to argue here, NATO will roll out all of Turkey’s neighbors (I hope there’s no need to argue with this). I didn’t take Russia into account, only Turkey’s neighbors. But I hinted a little about Russia

        In the photo in article M60A3, this is a tank developed in 1957, it can not even be compared with the T-72, by the way this tank is still the main one in the Turkish army. So if the alliance expands using the tanks in the photo, we will only neigh with them.

        -----------------------
        Over certain types of tanks you can laugh. Just keep in mind that the war is not fought by the tank itself, but by the crew in it. Further, the number of mediocre weapons can level the enemy’s high-quality weapons, since war is not a duel, but a slaughter that devours resources. That is, as a technique of the first echelon of the offensive, this tank is quite fit. Third, the NATO bloc has long been no longer defensive or deterrent, this organization takes the operational configuration necessary for the offensive. Whether this will be an offensive or not, this is the second question, but the configuration is being acquired. Assault weapons complexes are deployed, land equipment occupies border bridgeheads, something Shoigu talked about at a military college.

      What is the danger of crafty NATO diplomacy:

      Date of publication: December 11, 2015, 16:35

      Turkey supplied ISIL with sarin.

      On December 10, Turkish MP from the Republican Party of CHP, Eren Erdem, provided evidence of Turkey’s supply of poisonous gas to Sarin by ISIS terrorists.
      At a meeting of Parliament, Erdem showed a copy of the criminal case under number 2013/120, opened by the Attorney General of Adana. The investigation revealed that several Turkish citizens agreed on the supply of sarin gas during negotiations with ISIS terrorists. In the course of the criminal case, the phones of the suspects were heard and they fully confirmed the involvement of Turkish citizens in the supply of ISIS poisonous gas. Erdem showed a billing of telephone conversations that leave no doubt about the Turkish side’s involvement in sarin shipments. Based on all the evidence, Adana’s prosecutor’s office conducted a special operation and detained thirteen suspects. But a week later, for some inexplicable reason, the case was closed and all suspects instantly crossed the Turkish-Syrian border and are now hiding in Syria.

      Zarin is a colorless, odorless liquid, used as a chemical weapon. This nerve agent is fatal if it enters the body through both the respiratory system and the skin. The main signs of poisoning: severe headaches, suffocation, cough, muscle weakness, convulsions, vomiting, diarrhea.

      On August 21, 2013, sarin was used in a chemical attack on East Ghouta (Ghouta). The poisoning killed hundreds of civilians, including women and children. According to reports, the missiles used in this shelling were stuffed with sarin.

      In turn, Turkish President Erdogan stated that Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against his citizens. However, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ, who left the parliamentary meeting yesterday during Erdem’s speech, and the complete silence of Erdogan’s supporters after the shocking revelation of the deputy show that the poisonous substances could have been transferred to Syrian fighters precisely with Erdogan’s knowledge.

        Let's learn to face the truth. The expansion of NATO is a consequence of economic policies created by the financial pyramid of the dollar and the euro. EU and NATO countries get unlimited access to huge interest-free credit resources, while other countries are forced by their foreign trade to ensure the stability of the dollar soap bubble.

So they christened one Masha, and the other Dasha ... boys. I asked even then ---- well, how are they? My brother looked at me as if I was not healthy. He told me ......... my brains still hurt how he set them up for me. He said, that when their armored personnel carrier got swallowed and was immediately under fire, it fired from the AK on a par with my brother, and when the column of 3 abandoned armored personnel carriers decided to attack an ambush according to the regulations (fortunately, they fired from one side and a combat team appeared to attack. they attacked from two sides, from the side of the bojen armored personnel carriers with fire, and the bypass detachment went to their targets and acted like heroes. True, my brother then complained to me for 5 years that they were not recognized as "participants", and then everything went wrong.

    The article is heavy - "academic". Many words, terms, high scientific level ... Behind all this is the essence of the problem. And in my opinion it is as follows.
    Now the "Anaconda Loop" doctrine is being implemented in practice, which involves carrying out colored (velvet, floral, etc.) revolutions / coups to establish pro-American regimes along the perimeter of Russia. Slow diffusion of power in our country with the help of a pro-American liberal fifth column, inciting ethnic hatred, social conflicts, discrediting power structures. The milestone has been determined - the 2018 presidential elections.
    The question arises: But what does NATO have to do with it?
    And NATO is that screen-bridgehead that will allow the States to carry out their plan: to strangle Russia, and divide national wealth and territory into protectorates. The inclusion of the new member countries of the bloc essentially reduces our range, squeezing the Russian Federation out of Europe. But Europoids have forgotten that Russia is a great Euro-Asian country / civilization! We turned back to Hero Opera, and facing East. Now we are trying to make the narrow eyes of the hunfuz big, periodically throwing wunderwafers from our Arsenal.
    Of course, the behavior of our former (And Union republics and ATS accomplices) causes a feeling of deep regret and disappointment. Especially Svidomo sellers! We become economically strong, and these mongrel crawl back to our doorstep. Their fate is this: to grovel before the strong: neither pride nor honor ... vassals of life. What to take from them ...

    Thanks, of course, to the author for revealing the "cunning" US plan to establish its world domination by isolating Russia through NATO expansion. But why did the Naglo-Saxons have to fence in a garden, if the whole world, including Russia, they got hooked on "candy wrappers-dollars", which are printed by a private shop called the US Federal Reserve, thereby securing world economic domination. After the collapse of the USSR, a puppet government was planted in Moscow, which was almost ready to jump out of its pants for its masters from the United States. Yes, accept Russia into NATO, especially since the puppets themselves asked to go there, and the United States has no headache, get a protectorate the size of 1/6 of the land. Here you will find a new market for everything that cannot be sold in "civilized" countries, and an inexhaustible storehouse of all kinds of resources, even human, even fossil, even natural. Re-equip the protectorate army as you like and under what standards you need, place your bases anywhere in the subordinate country, and after that all other countries of the world themselves would agree to become a US protectorate. That's all, here you are and the Master of the World. But for some reason the mattress-makers do not use this opportunity, and for some reason they persist in confrontation with Russia. Want to destroy us in some more sophisticated way? Unclear. Indeed, in the case of waving nuclear batons, the earthly ball may not withstand and fall apart, but I think this is not necessary for the naglo-Saxons. Do you understand such a riddle turns out.

      Here, friend, I also see a "misunderstanding". Here I want to note that the author will complicate the problem somewhat by not revealing the structure of the adversary. As they say - everything ingenious is simple. The world is ruled by an ordinary "family", consisting of both blood relatives and close associates. Presumably the Queen of Great Britain holds the "bump" (here you have the Illuminati, the Skull and Bones club, and a bunch of other demonic paraphernalia). Accordingly, three conditional centers of the "gods" can be identified - these are London City, Washington DC and the Vatican (2 billion "subjects). In fact, the adversaries do not have their own state - they do not need it. There is a" brain "- this is Buckingham the palace, there is a fist - the USA. "Presidents", "prime ministers" and other extras are just actors in their game. By inventing a dollar typewriter, they made the whole world dependent. All countries work for them like farm laborers, unable to pay off by percentage, since the "terms of the agreement" themselves do not allow doing this. Russia did not escape this bondage ("thanks" to BNE). Now Vladimirovich is trying to get out of this dependence, relying on (according to General Petrov, whom I trust, and the kingdom of heaven ) on the ideological way of managing the masses. So that's what I mean ... In the 90s, nothing prevented the states from seizing Russia without military action (maybe I am mistaken), since everything was bought and everything was sold. Nevertheless, the Masons did not gave the mouth of Russia. I remember the distant 40 XNUMXs, when they also stopped the American hawks from inflicting a nuclear strike on the USSR (and it doesn't matter that the method of delivering the nucleus was only aviation, but the USSR had everything in order with its air defense, and the amers had little chance, not to mention that the amount of ammunition was in units). They also carried out a "information leak", as a result of which the USSR received nuclear weapons technology. So the thought comes to my mind that opposition is more important for them than victory ... Why? Well this is for the more intelligent than me ...

    Judging by the tactics of NATO in their large-scale operations of recent times, they first demolish the enemy’s air defense, strike at command centers and important enemy infrastructure, gain air supremacy and only then begin to advance with their ground corps (in parallel) into the enemy’s body. the military potential of Turkey’s neighbors, it’s clear to the hedgehog that it’s possible for Turkey to carry out the first stage of a deep operation (naturally with the help of intelligence, special, logistics, electronic and shock fire support of the Allies in the bloc) .Then the second stage of the deep operation-ground will come. So ... M1 may not even meet with the T-60. Because, having complete dominance in the air, drones and reconnaissance satellites will throw ahead once again. And all the suspicious clusters and rustles in the dead of night will be burned mercilessly. The fire brigades of the U. helicopters and the Air Force in NATO have good contact with the ground forces. Therefore, no Turkish neighbor can turn the enemy back. P.S. I do not consider Turkey separately from NATO. Not a single gesture or step indicated that NATO wants to move away from the bully. On the contrary, they said about the political unity of the bloc, the Bundes will work from NATO territory and many other unpleasant trifles.

If Russia cannot concentrate, then it is time to bristle. The West does not believe that a nuclear war is possible, because they see that the Turks shot down and ... nothing. We are waiting, sir. The West in the East needs to retreat, not the East in the West. They are sure that Russia cannot survive under the sanctions. The situation in the "crafty" West is no better.

    The current NATO policy, especially the zeal to expand countries towards Russia, is now well understood by a child. The same Baltic states, which they are so loudly and persistently trying to "save from Russian aggression", they need it not as a buffer zone, but as a close foothold near our borders to concentrate offensive forces, and not defensive forces at all, as they cleverly try to present it! The same applies to Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and, in general, all the countries of Eastern Europe. And the stake was the same on Ukraine (in particular, on the Crimea - to deploy a naval base there and thereby block essentially the entire Black Sea). And in Ukraine, they have several goals for which the Maidan was organized, or rather MAYDOWN ... And these goals are simple and easy to read, judging by what efforts they are making - 1) to change the main government of Ukraine in order to turn the vector of foreign policy exclusively to the pro-Western , moving away from the Russian Federation and the CIS! 2) to destroy and seize control over the economy and industry of Ukraine in order to put it in complete and deep dependence on the West for many years! (and periodically "save" the people of Ukraine by giving handouts in the form of millions of donations ...) 3) use the entire territory of Ukraine as a close foothold near the borders of the Russian Federation (including conducting exercises already in the Russian-speaking area with its characteristic features and possible partisan action, which the reaction of Donbass and confirmed ...) - this is a qualitative difference with the countries of Eastern Europe and the Baltic states (there is no strong resistance to NATO and the population was initially pro-Western) 4) gradually change the moods of Ukrainian citizens to anti-Russian ways, substitution of historical facts, general culture and value systems, incitement nationalist strife, etc. (there are many ways) ...
    In short: all this blah-blah-blah about "Russia's aggression against the Ukraine and the Baltic states and .. on Mars ..." is just a way to portray the enemy as a vicious aggressor in the eyes of the citizens of Europe, America, and indeed the whole world! So that later, coming closer to our borders, to declare "A RESCUE MISSION AND OPERATION TO DEMOCRATIZE THE BARBARIANS IN RUSSIA" ... Everything is clear and easy to read now even for non-military specialists after the events in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and especially in Yugoslavia .. !
    The question, it seems, they have only one not yet resolved - will they be able to conquer Russia without the use of nuclear weapons?! ... If they only believe for a minute that yes, they will attack that hour! .. And now, the prospect of running into retaliatory nuclear warheads from us - as a result of losing our land and industry for hundreds of years, in addition to population loss, and also having destroyed Europe, in addition to Russia (where it will also be impossible to live or use natural resources) , - thereby zeroing out the very meaning of such actions ..! So they scratch their turnips ... while they still scratch ..!
    They are not afraid of Russia, and Putin is not afraid of them (nevertheless, they are not fools there and they see very well that for all Putin’s time the Russian Federation has NEVER ATTENTED ANYWHERE ANYWHERE ANYWHERE!), But they are tearing to the borders of the Russian Federation ... to the distance of firing artillery systems and second (maximum five-minute) distances for missiles and bombs ... so that there is no need to use ballistic missiles ... giving a chance for reciprocal launches !!!

      Putin is just afraid. If Russia was headed by a "differently oriented" president, he would have surrendered everything without a fight!
      It is this "partners" that oppresses, well, he is a "non-partner", praative ....
      HE IS A JUDOIST AND NOT A P..C.
      The Russians like him, but not the NATO leadership.
      We have to strangle Russia "humanely" by the hands of others.
      Something like that hi

      Roy Jones is the greatest boxer of all time! And the fact that at the age of 46 he entered the ring, and even for Russia, is already a feat. I did not look (as I felt), and as My did not call me to the box, he said that Roy would lose, but he was great! I didn’t want to see his sporting defeat, but this is His way ...

    NATO allows its members not to strain on the bill
    construction and maintenance of full aircraft.
    It is enough to have a minimum for business trips and operations.
    Plus you get cheap weapons, if there is no money.
    Some second-hand is always tossed on the cheap.
    Well and still, NATO as a gang that will always cover its own.
    And until we started to give them snot
    so it will continue.

    Yesterday I looked at one of the Hollywood products - "MARSIANI" ... Americans, as always, are at the height and ahead of the rest of the planet ... But that's not the point .... These pioneers enlisted everyone in the ranks of their astronauts - both the Chinese and the Germans , and Latinos ... The Chinese generally extended a hand of friendship in a difficult hour !!! what is it ??? About our cosmic presence, not a word ... There are no us and that's it ...
    it’s not anti-Soviet - it’s just ignore ... And this material is served to our layman, they say hawai, people .... And they haw, choking on popcorn and cola ....

    Unfortunately, NATO is so clearly lobbying for US interests that it is worth considering whether this organization is even needed.

      This is not stupidity, but the usual desire to "become famous", but not by good deeds ...
      "... just wasting time.
      You cannot become famous for good deeds. "

      The article is capacious. True, she did not discover anything new in Western diplomacy. Sly? Yes, if you look, they have a lot of things from the evil one. At different times, this meanness manifested itself in different ways, but now it is expressed in the desire to bring to the knees the last bastion of a people independent of them. What can I say? In their desires, they went far, only their opportunities are pathetic.

      All this fuss under the "sensitive" guidance of the "staff" resembles the barking of a pack of Mosek at the Elephant. The similarities are obvious. Let them say that the NATO bloc is strong, that there is no force against it ... Maybe the economies of the NATO countries are developed, only ... to break is not to build. And in the case of "breaking" we do not take experience ...

      Why is Russia, with such an obvious threat from the North Atlantic alliance, hesitating and not responding to provocations? This is my personal opinion. As long as decisions are made by oligarchs who have "movable" and "real estate" near the warm shores, what clever person would want "an atomic bomb to fall into his garden" ...

      The actions of the crowd against one are always predictable: either "we are giving him a load now," or "and if he is - to us? And, why should we?"
      So, the phase has already passed: "Boy, do you have money? (..., you can't find a smoke? ... what are you talking about? ... how did you get here? ..., who are you supporting?) ". The second part of the Marlezon Ballet was announced, and the host of the ball was shot down by D'Artagnan who burst into the hall (in the sense that Erdogan shot down our Su-24). But the weak and cowardly "accomplices" are still waiting for what the "leader" will say? And the leader would be glad to say, but he is not ready to go for broke. I'm not used to it. First, he knows that the enemy is strong enough to break anyone's neck. Secondly, this cheerleader has never won alone (one on one, not to mention one against the crowd). And the opponent has been in different alterations ...

      How long will this phase of the confrontation last? There is an answer to this question.

      Until Russia "piles" on one, too zealous "sixth" ... And, believe me, the reaction will be the same as that of France before the well-known events: it turns out that ISIS exists. In our case, in Russia, behind the softness of the paws, long and strong claws are hidden, capable of tearing anyone. I suppose, not without reason, that the first "torn to shreds" may not have time to figure out what happened ... But, the next ones, splattered with blood and giblets, will "piss into their underpants" for a long time, looking at the boss.

      The thought suggests itself: "There is only one way out, to dump the boss?" The methods are different here, and I really don't want repetition:


      In this situation, such a case will also be positive when like-minded people stand next to a loner opposing greed and insanity ... Then we will really be x * y (waist-deep) who will expand and where.
      The most striking thing in this situation is that in the event of a Russian victory no one will put the downcast in shackles and force them to work for their uncle. What happens when the leader wins, we can see on the example of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya ... It’s a pity that some of our ex-brothers do not have the courage to take off our blinders and open our eyes ...

    Russia is healthy (from the word health), a clean, unspoiled area of ​​the globe that stores human values. Worms and maggots swarm around her - underdeveloped and overdeveloped countries that undermine Russia and bite it from all sides. NATO is an accumulation of various nits, which suck out everything that is useful and beneficial from the body, which so far does not pay much attention to small bites and wounds.
    However, sooner or later, will a medical cleansing procedure was performed. Hopefully, surgery is not required.

    Underneath sly diplomacy, there is always a definite goal. Fair play presupposes fair behavior. And everything else is a scam! Therefore, the behavior of the West is a gypsy "kindness" whose purpose is to rip off to the skin!
