Military Review

The Germans have three problems with Russia


The recent visit of the “sweet couple” of German journalists to Putin’s den and a series of provocative, aggressive and naive questions from their side of the Russian president pushed me to write this short note about our boy. In the end, the GDP of a person is very busy, and he simply has no time to answer the questions of the “average German kindergarten student”. My time is less limited, so why not make life easier for literally everyone and not give answers to all the questions about Russia, which are so much disturbing the ordinary German "questioner".

So, the Germans have exactly three problems with Russia.

The first problem. Literally on a subconscious level, the Germans consider Russia to be a system of lower order than Germany. In engineering, politics, economics, military, science, literally everything. Accordingly, the “dialogue on equal terms”, from their point of view, is impossible in principle. Russians have no democracy, outdated technology, corruption, lack of press freedom and personal freedom. In short, gloom. The funny thing is that at the same time the Germans categorically refuse to study this very "backward Russia". As a rule, they know nothing about Russia except Russia for propaganda, and, strictly speaking, they don’t want to know much. But Russia is not Nigeria at all. Over the past three hundred years, beginning with Peter the Great, Russia has played a leading role in world affairs, being the largest power on the planet. With the exception of island Britain, Russia is the only power that Europeans / Americans have never been able to defeat and occupy. France, Austria, Italy, Germany, Japan, Portugal and Turkey, Iran and India, China and Korea - all of them, one way or another, were defeated in a new and newest storiesbut not Russia. But on one totalitarianism, slavery and lies it would be extremely difficult to achieve this. Here, you see, there is such a logical paradox in their propaganda: on the one hand, it is a worthless third-world country, which is a pity for a good bullet, on the other hand - the number one threat to European democracy.

Apparently, they were carried away by the translation of Nekrasov ("... You are mighty, / You and impotent ..."). Such is the paradox. The fact that in the field of space technology, helicopter manufacturing, production of modern fighters is Russia is the number one country in the world, they are simply not noticed.

Paradoxically, even the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria did not change anything in this picture of Russian backwardness. But such an operation on the planet can be carried out literally by two countries - the United States and the Russian Federation. Perhaps China is not aware of their capabilities, but I doubt it a little. By the way, no matter how much we want all of eternal peace, but it is precisely such military operations that demonstrate the level of development of the state. We need modern equipment, pilots, security, intelligence, logistics, communications, EW ... a lot of things you need, you will get tired of your fingers. By the way, can Germany (the economic heart of Europe) conduct a similar operation? Japan (East Asian industrial and financial monster) can? Why not? All the money stole Serdyukov-san?

Do you find paradoxical the talk about the complete absence of corruption and the unprecedented economic efficiency of the German economy and the simultaneous absence of a sufficient number of machine guns in parts of the Bundeswehr (which is quite small)? Some kind of inconsistency here. In the "zero" salary of the German worker was tightly cut, social benefits, too, the German economy is "blooming", but there was no money for machine guns. Even taking into account the fact that large German capital literally “gutted” Eastern and Southern Europe. By the way, there is no money at the Luftwaffe either, that's why they don’t fly (just kidding). Of course, looking at this "holiday of life", Hitler would shoot himself a second time. Something strange is the economic prosperity of Germany ... Where, in fact, and in what is it expressed? Space program? Are underwater cities being built? Submarine fleet? Willy II after coming to power - "in a quick" way heaped a fleet of the open sea, which cost incredible money and was the second on the planet. At the same time, the Russian fleet was far behind. The Führer, having come to power - “in five seconds” built super-powerful ships, which cost a lot, but sharply raised the naval rank of Germany. The USSR could not build such ships at that time, alas. Industrial, trading Germany needed a powerful navylike Britain, Holland, Venice, Byzantium ... Nothing new. Although the fleet is expensive. That is precisely why modern Germany does not have a fleet. Absolutely. But there is democracy. But the Russians have a fleet, but it doesn’t matter.

Russia is the largest country in the world, and these lands have not been given to her as a gift from the “higher powers”. This is called successful state building. There are trains running across this endless territory, factories are smoking there, laws are being observed. In this area live one and a half hundreds of various nations. Plus space, nuclear shield, science. It is such a Eurasian power. But for the Germans all this for some reason does not exist. They are ready to build relations with the United States or China, but not with Russia. They don’t see Russia as a serious partner, they don’t want to see it point-blank. In principle, it was Russia that maintained the relative order in the territory of the “walking-field Ukraine”, until the European integrators came. The lack of a realistic assessment of Russia and its capabilities makes it impossible to build an adequate foreign policy of Germany.

The second problem. Russia is unknowable in principle (a mysterious distant country), and only a tough confrontation based on the incompatibility of cultures and values ​​is possible with it. Funny enough: for example, no one has ever said such nonsense about Spain (which is not really Europe). As, however, and about Turkey in 19-20-21 centuries, which differs from Germany much more. Japan, for example, was an ally of Germany in WWII, and no one tried to argue that the Japanese were a total mysticism. Although the difference between Japanese and German culture is much more than between Russian and German. It’s just historically that Russia’s entire millennial history somehow contacts with Europe. Europeans consider themselves the heirs of Roman and Greek culture (different Europeans in different degrees). Russia positions itself as the successor of Byzantium.

That is, Russia is not Turkey, not Iran, and not even Algeria. This is, figuratively speaking, an analogue of the United States, that is, Europe outside Europe, geographically and mentally. But if, with respect to the United States, the Europeans readily recognize this (the West and its values), then with respect to Russia they refuse to admit categorically. Millions of Germans from the 18 century to the beginning of 20 left for the United States (mass emigration). Germany knows and remembers this. But, forgive me, during the same period, hundreds of thousands of Germans moved to Russia. Russian urban culture in the Russian Empire was created largely due to their participation. Just after WWII and the achievements of Vaterland on the basis of humanism, it is not customary to recall this. But that was, that was. Read the Russian classic literature (a good reason), and you will be shocked by the number of various Germans "in the frame." What did they all do here? Money earned. At the end of the 18 century, about a quarter of a million Germans lived in Russia. Germans, Carl. In the distant mysterious Russia. At the end of 19 century under two million. And it is only those who continued to consider themselves Germans. Many "Russified".

Berlin is very close to St. Petersburg, in every sense of the word. Those Russian Germans, as a rule, lived in large cities, so their presence was very noticeable, although there were also places of “compact settlement”. This alone contradicts the theory of "distant and unknowable" Russia. Germans remember well the participation of Germans in the construction of America, the participation of Germans in the development of industry, science and mining in Russia in Germany for some reason does not like to remember. Why? What's wrong? After all, this can be proud of: the factories at the Great Lakes and in the Urals — that is, across the globe — were built with the participation of German specialists! Well this is really cool! About the Great Lakes remember, about the Urals ... what Urals? It's just that it spoils the life of the very theory of “far and wrong” Russia. Strange, but Russia and Germany have very close and numerous connections, especially since the days of Peter, but only Russia remembers this (not always). Thousands and thousands of German officials, officers, doctors, entrepreneurs and engineers moved to Russia. The reason is simple - in Russia the competition was lower, and there were more opportunities than in overcrowded Germany.

By the way, in the same classical Russian literature and in the 18 memoirs of the century, there is a strong dissatisfaction with the “dominance of the Germans”. A hell of a lot of them rode here, on Russian bread ... And at the beginning of the 21 century, German journalists, "breaking themselves through the knee," try to understand - what kind of Russia is this? Shangri-La some kind, and only. It seems that someone is slightly deceiving someone. Especially given the fact that a million and a half million Russian Germans returned to Germany in 90, who, being fluent in two languages ​​and being familiar with both countries, could easily put all the points / umlauts over and (or over). You see, what is the matter, in order not to answer serious and unpleasant questions, you can always pretend that you do not understand the obvious things - “fool to include”. And asking a very busy Russian president with a naive look: “Well, how is that, Mr. Putin?”

The fact that in the EU headed by Germany the Russians found themselves in the position of “second-rate people” in the Baltic states, for some reason, remains behind the scenes and is never discussed. And the question is interesting. But okay, even about this, the Kremlin decided not to raise the scandal. And Kiev, Maidan, a coup. And German politicians and journalists can not see and understand the obvious things. “Why Crimea?” They ask, directing an incomprehensible gaze on President Putin ... The logical connection of these two events (that the German politicians did not support Maidan - the Crimea would have remained in Ukraine) is absolutely inaccessible for them. In general, this discussion is frankly stupid: the actions of the West in Kiev in February 2014 are not discussed in any way - this was necessary, and the response actions of Russia with them in conjunction with cause genuinely perplexity. Why was it still good? Approximately the same discussion went around the "retaliatory" Iskander. What for? American anti-missiles to Europeans was strictly forbidden to discuss. Therefore, they discussed the Russian Iskander. Actively with pressure. This is the same with Ukraine and Maidan - they conferred in the West and decided to recognize Maidan-2. Everything, the question is closed, the more they are not going to discuss it with anyone, especially with outsiders.

In fact, the February coup in Kiev and the immediate recognition by Berlin of its results broke through the ulcer of the Russian-German contradictions. There were a lot of problems and disagreements. Let us also recall the “confiscation of criminal Russian money in Cyprus”. Eastern Partnership. We deliberately "let go of the brakes" these issues, hoping for positive prospects. They thought that everything was in order. And burst. And aggravating the “sincere misunderstanding,” Putin called Russia's main mistake, “that it had not previously declared its national interests.” And now she said suddenly. GDP should have been perfectly aware that all political space in Europe is completely divided and there is no place for “Russian national interests” there. In order to squeeze them in there - someone must move very strongly. The truth of life is that Germany and Russia are culturally close enough, but the Germans categorically refuse to understand and recognize Russian interests in Europe. That is why they professionally "include a fool" and refuse to understand basic things: "Everything was fine until Putin suddenly annexed the Crimea."

The third problem. Even after two world wars, the Germans, by some strange coincidence, are convinced that the confrontation with Russia is quick, easy and pleasant. Blitzkrieg syndrome to his. The whole calculation in 2014 was made on the basis of the fact that we will impose sanctions, and Russia will collapse. It was a kind of dvuhhodovka operation of a single version of "A." Understand that the most fun - having planned, started and lost two world wars, these people have not learned anything. Nothing at all. “They haven’t forgotten and learned nothing,” said Talleyrand, describing the “restored” French aristocracy in 1815. Approximately the same can be said about our German "partners". The extension of the June 22 sanctions of the year is just from that very series. The German leadership is not something that has not learned from the two world wars - it categorically refuses to extract them. Another approach to the same geopolitical rake. Big wars do not start like this with a bay-bakery. They are prepared and carefully planned. In advance, in advance. That is why it is very easy to prevent a big war. At first sight.

It is surprising that Germany's open support for neo-Nazis in Eastern Europe and the break in relations with Russia did not in any way affect the Chancellor's rating. It is unclear and wrong. This is how, at one time, Germany supported the "color revolutionaries" in the same Libya and Syria. And no one inside the country objected. The hysteria began when a stream of refugees from Africa and Asia poured into German cities. Here Germany experienced a severe painful shock and fell into a serious political crisis with WWII. You see, these are not just lines in newspapers and videos in the news... This is a real deepest crisis of German statehood. But to this day, for them, Assad is an enemy who must leave. And the "democratic opposition" of Syria is a friend. Even after the "Cologne New Year". Some kind of schizophrenic policy: they demolish the regimes that serve as barriers to migrants, and then hysterically look for ways to solve the “problem of migrants”. To this day, no one in Germany wants to admit the fact that the “demolition” of Gaddafi and the war in Syria were a mistake.

From their point of view - these decisions were absolutely correct. Assad and Gaddafi - had to leave. Point. This is not discussed. There should be no refugees. The decision is correct, the consequences are wrong. And how to work with such people? Even the terrorist attacks in France have changed absolutely nothing here. Asad is an enemy and a tyrant, he must leave. Point. Why this retreat? So with regard to Russia, politics is just as schizophrenic: the fact that Russia did not want to recognize the results of the armed coup in Kiev and respect those who seized power with weapons in the hands, served as a pretext for sanctions. Moreover, the plan is absolutely delusional from the very beginning: we are conducting a coup in Kiev by armed neo-Nazis, destroying those who disagree, establishing a regime of terror there and creating death squads with SS symbols. And Russia understands all this and accepts. And the friendship in the triangle Moscow-Kiev-Berlin only grows stronger with each burnt “Colorado”. Only a madman could believe in the reality of this plan. But German democratic politicians sincerely believed in the feasibility of this option. No kidding. And sincerely offended when Moscow disliked the “little Turchinov”.

I’m thinking, what if Mr Putin spoke to them not in German, but, for example, in Mongolian? Would everything be worse? He has been in politics for fifteen years. And all fifteen years he speaks Germans with Germans. For fifteen years he has been talking with German politicians in German about the problems of mutual relations between Russia and Germany. Then, suddenly, the Ukrainian crisis, the war in the Donbas, sanctions, and immediately after the New Year 2016, before Orthodox Christmas, two German journalists come to Russia and 2 hours are torturing Putin with absolutely “childish” questions. “Has your economy collapsed yet?” And when will it fall apart? ” There were two very large and bloody wars in the 20 century, millions of soldiers and civilians were killed, and Russia and Germany suffered heavy losses. Restoring relations under Brezhnev, uniting Germany under Gorbachev, drunk Yeltsin waltzing in the center of Berlin, Putin ... And suddenly, at the slightest conflict, the Germans rushed headlong into a fight, trying to destroy the Russian economy. Do they learn anything at all?

Of course, the Russian economy will suffer significant damage as a result of sanctions - this is a fact. It's silly to argue with that. But the political consequences will be quite different than the “sanction architects” planned: first, Germany will lose the Russian market irrevocably, nobody likes it when its main trading partner suddenly “bucks” out of the blue, you either trade in Russia, or play political games but not both together; secondly, Germany will completely lose political influence in Russia, it will be just one of the countries, no more; third, Russia will inevitably carry out certain “retaliatory” political steps against Germany. “There is no revenge in politics, but there are consequences”, - Stolypin. And most importantly, this will not help Ukraine in any way; in its attitude, Russia's position has become even tougher. This conflict will be protracted and difficult for both sides and completely redraw the political landscape of Eastern Europe (the relationship will be completely different). This is about how Europe-1918 radically differed from Europe-1914. It has already become clear that the Germans did not prepare for a long-term confrontation and that they did not have any “backup options”. They expected a quick victory on the “Russian front”, a quick solution to the “Ukrainian issue” and a quick switch to other problem areas. The protracted war in the east is so familiar ...

The trouble is that, as with the refugees, the negative consequences for Germany will not come immediately, not immediately, and in this case, the ordinary German does not see a logical connection. Despite all the "frostbite" of German foreign policy towards Arabs and Russians, Merkel remained a very respected and popular politician until refugees flooded into Germany. Here the Germans were outraged! How so? "And we are for sho?". Also, a sharp deterioration in relations with Russia during the reign of Merkel did not affect her rating in any way. And we thought that in Germany it was interesting to someone ... No, the Germans didn’t care. So, a little earlier Hitler was incredibly popular in the Reich, despite the world war unleashed by him. The Germans approved. But when thousands of bombs rained down on Hamburg, and it blazed like a Christmas tree, then the mood changed. But you will not believe - they did not see a direct connection here either. That is, the link between the attack on Poland and the burnt German cities was not obvious to them. So in the case of retaliatory Russian political moves against Berlin, and they will certainly follow, for the Germans this will be an unpleasant surprise. And in the same way two naive German correspondents will arrive and will ask Putin: “Vladimir, why?”

          Thanks to the author for the article, but when he says "Germans" - he means the government of Germany and not the inhabitants of the country - and these are "two big differences"

          The fact of the matter is that by the word "Germans" the author quite rightly understands precisely the Germans, and not their leadership. Ordinary ordinary Germans are pragmatic, highly specialized burghers, strong pensioners, always tired middle-aged, asexual tolerant youth, brought up on films in the style of "ya, ya, das ist fantastish." If they have anything to do with what happens outside the Motherland, then this interest is easily satisfied at the expense of their own media, which the Germans, accustomed to order, trust in the overwhelming majority unconditionally. I'm not saying that all Germans are like that - they are just the majority, and it is they who determine the atmosphere, the political climate, or something, in Germany. They cannot be called stupid - by no means, and they do not understand the obvious, from our point of view, things they are because they are IN THE FIGURE as long as it does not concern them, while they feel good.

          And now all of a sudden it suddenly became ... no, not bad yet, but a little already not so good. They are sensitive to this. Who touched - outraged. Who can - begins to try to figure out what is happening. Who knows - keeps quiet.

          And rightly Putin speaks to them - if there is interest, but he begins to appear, it must be satisfied with benefit for Russia. Even if one German out of a thousand who listened to Putin thinks about what is happening in the world, it will be beneficial for both Germany and Russia ...

              Have you read the article then? You can be friends. But to start a friendship, unfortunately, they will have to put the Germans on their knees, shoot some, the others should be robbed of nothing. Then throw them a little money, but take the power for yourself, putting out of the Germans only a completely controlled administration.
              Under these conditions, the Germans will call us friends, as Americans are now recognized as friends. We should have at least shot every tenth! Then we would have many times more friendships with them now ... well, of that strange state that they understand as friendship.
              We didn’t do this ... therefore, the Germans are completely incomprehensible. For the negotiations to succeed, Putin had not to let the dog into the office, but beat Merkel with the butt properly. Apparently, nothing happens ...

        Absolutely right. Remember what is written in the Chancellor Act, which is signed by each head of the German government, assuming office (he is supposedly secret, but we know bully)? Take at least these points:
        - ownership of allies (those. USA) German newspapers, radio and television until 2099.
        - ownership of allies (again USA) gold reserves of the Federal Republic.
        In addition, the Germans annually pay $ 30 billion to maintain American military bases on their territory.
        The post-war US policy towards Germany, known as the "three D" ("demilitarization, denazification, democratization"), gave its results - the German nation became politically impotent.

          The fact that the country is occupied is a misfortune, albeit three times deserved, that they allowed themselves to be occupied is a shame. There, the Japanese, they say, hate and despise Americans, although they are forced to remain silent. I do not exclude the truth that about the Japanese - a fake.

        Are the brains of the Germans also occupied? I 100% support the author of the article, because in dealing with the Germans this is: "What about us?" I catch it without difficulty ... They, ska, are also surprised, but how is that? How can we go to some kind of aggravation with them? Ah sanctions? But we ourselves deserve them! From the point of view of ordinary Germans, we must, with our heads down, go guilty for daring to have our own view of the situation in Ukraine and in the world!
        However, Germany can still turn to the world and its other side, the world has already seen this side - from 1933 to 1945. And then...

          Will not turn. The Deutsches have already been so "diluted" that no Fuehrer will help. Paradox: The Germans were the most united super-ethnos in Western Europe. This did not even break the centuries-old fragmentation into principalities and kingdoms, how quickly they "lined up in columns" under Bismarck! What do we have now? It is THIS that has become a hotbed of degenerating multiculturalism, a center for the settlement of militant migrants, an apparatus for the emasculation of national cultural traditions and historical roots. On the "home stretch" the Germans successfully overtook even the French. This is the diagnosis: occupied country, hostage syndrome. Gallus by the name of Brenn a couple of thousand years ago already put it briefly and clearly: Woe to the vanquished! It is sad that the brain of a burgher cannot comprehend the difference between the concepts “Russia defeated us (and left)” and “The American kaganate occupied us, is occupying and will occupy”. The irony of fate: while the GDR was, the American patron treated his German "under-colleagues" much more respectfully.

    GERMANY needs Russia only as a source of raw materials and in the long term as a territory for settling Germans ... preferably without Russians or with Russians as slaves. (This plan worked with UKRAINE)
    The invasion of blacks and Arabs in GERMANY somewhat broke these plans of the German government ... the emphasis is temporarily shifted in this direction.

    I am absolutely convinced that with the German government, now and in the future it is necessary to talk from the position of a strong man ... you must not let go of their attempts to hit us ... you must immediately be put in the face and sentenced to remind their genes of Hitler Caput.

    Russia is the largest country in the world, and these very lands did not at all come to her as a gift from "higher powers". This is called successful state building.

    It is not clear to whom the necessary visit of two biased and stupid idiots demonstrated that a significant part of the German population (not all) know nothing about Russia and, most importantly, they do not want to know.

    "Lower"And"incomprehensible"Russia was very even higher and comprehensible in 45. But - they don't want to remember and know about it.

    The third problem is the pan-European problem of sybaritism; state of drug intoxication from a high standard of living; very low pain threshold (exaggerating - the lack of toilet paper or poodle haircuts); dullness; lack of critical thinking and, due to this, a high susceptibility to stupid propaganda (it is not necessary to reach heights, write any nonsense - they will believe); painfully abnormal tolerance; strict over-regulation of all spheres of life (lack of freedom); the destruction of national characteristics, customs and preferences; herd instinct; the destruction of faith and spirituality in general.

    In the background: Italy, France, Austria (Serbia, Greece do not count, not that potential).
    Simply, the United States and Britain have always done and are doing everything to prevent a strong Russia-Germany alliance.
    They are well aware that the merger of German and Russian technologies with Russian resources will take over all Anglo-Saxon dominance, both in economics and politics. They missed Schroeder,
    They realized that they weren’t allowed for a second term. Now, starting with Merkel, they will tightly monitor
    "training" of chancellors in Germany. It is easier for them to destroy Germany than to allow its rapprochement with Russia. By the way, the sanctions against Russia, first of all, are just for this, and Crimea and Ukraine
    only an excuse. There are many Russophobes in Europe, but the Germans are not, although we took off the war.

    We really are in many ways inferior to Germany, but not militarily.

    We are not inferior to the Germans in anything, except for the social sphere and the development of homo "democracy". And if I don’t want to discuss the second question, I’ll express myself on the first one. Germany is a very compact country with a rather mild climate. I would have seen how they managed to develop vast territories with permafrost, impassable taiga and swamps, in addition to everything else, and constantly brush aside in many wars from various sworn neighbors who constantly tried to snatch a fatter piece from Russia. The richest country in Europe did not even try to create its own, albeit small, but space program, not to mention the fleet. Instead, they are thrown off by all of Europe and create ESA, because the vaunted Germany itself does not pull. Do you know how much it costs to create one launch vehicle? I think if it were pure gold, it would be cheaper. It is easier for Amers, they print bucks, and Russia earns and extracts all the resources itself. And about the social sphere. Tricky question. How many subsidized regions are there in Russia? In Russia, the most wicked people are still the Russians. All national subsidized regions live very well, maybe not like in Germany, but still. They themselves do not produce anything, and they also whine about Russian "chauvinism". In Europe, the problem with migrants has just begun, and in Russia, since tsarist times, there has been a tradition of feeding all kinds of parasites, such as national outskirts.

    The grotesque of Yegorov, by and large, correctly reflects the current level of relations that have developed between Russia and Germany. Another thing surprises me. The USA keeps Germany on a short leash. This is understandable, but it is not entirely clear why the German people and Merkel allow this to be done. Where does such semi-slavish submission come from? Why, in spite of everything, does the majority of the population support their chancellor? In a word, there is not much to explain.

    Who are more Germans than the current Germans of Germany themselves, because they also speak that German language that is practically forgotten in Germany, and they have completely retained their identity and culture, but I'm talking about something else, I'm about the fact that in Russia they never have anyone did not try to assimilate (and they are not an indigenous people), which speaks of the attitude of the Russian State towards the peoples and nationalities inhabiting it. Moreover, they (they are in Germany, and they call themselves "Rusaks") are still the only ones who went with clubs to protect their women.

      That is, if the Anglo-Saxons disappear from the planet - the Germans and the Russian sharply make friends ??

    You understand that the funniest part is that when they planned, started and lost two world wars, these people did not learn anything. Nothing at all ... The extension of the sanctions on June 22, 2015 is just from the same series. The German leadership did not learn from the two world wars, it categorically refuses to learn them.

    I completely agree with the author! Earlier, there was an article in which it was argued that the Germans could not stand the lesson of history, did not justify the trust placed in them. Indeed, despite their current pacifism, external tolerance, attitude towards the army and military service, non-participation in NATO military sorties, etc., they did not learn the main lesson - under no sauce one should not approach the borders of Russia, invade its zone. interests and try it for strength. This alone negates all their achievements in the matter of repentance and denazification. As it turned out in practice, the German elites, having revived their economic power, calmly returned to the ideas of "Drang nach Osten", albeit in a different form and with other instruments, but with the same ultimate goals.

    figuratively speaking, an analogue of the USA, that is, Europe outside of Europe, geographically and mentally

    I will never agree with this. Even figuratively. When joining the lands, Russia did not use the methods of Britons, Franks, and other conquerors of North America. About the conquest of South America, we are not talking. States have more in common with Australia. Both there and there - runaway, exiles. And not in such distant historical times. But Russia-was, is and will be. And it does not depend on the West. And the article is excellent. Definitely +. There are rarely such balanced articles.

      Russia did not use when joining lands

      Well, I never wrote that Russia = United States, and even did not put a sign of approximate equality between them.
      But there is an analogy. The USA is an expansion of Europe to America with a serious change.
      Russia - Russia is not really Europe, we are rather relatives and nevertheless - a lot in common .. Compare from the point of view of a German: Vladik, Harbin and Tokyo ...

    You know what I'm afraid of is that the sanctions will be lifted and the oil will be back at 120. Paradoxically ... Because now our "elitists" need to move, do something, remember that we have our own production, the military-industrial complex. That is not a single oil. And at 120 per barrel, one principle worked for them - why do something, we will buy everything, then the dough heaps.

    Rulers have no friends; they are doomed to loneliness. And sometimes they can express their innermost thoughts only in the form of aphorisms or hints of varying degrees of transparency. Here is the creator of Germany, Otto von Bismarck, who went down in world history as the "iron chancellor", did not have the opportunity to be frank. The most important covenants of Otto Eduard Leopold Bismarck von Schonhausen, and according to our Otto Eduardovich, expressed in the form of winged phrases and aphorisms. It is time for Germany to recall the golden words of its iron chancellor, they are worth repeating.

    One of the greatest politicians in Germany (and the whole world) literally conjured the German people and their leaders:

    • “Never mess with Russians!”

    • “Do not hope that once you take advantage of the weakness of Russia, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come, don’t rely on the Jesuit agreements you have signed that supposedly justify you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written. Therefore, it’s worth playing with the Russians either honestly or not at all. ”

    • “Never plot anything against Russia, because it will respond to each of your tricks with its unpredictable stupidity.”

    • “Russia is dangerous by the meagerness of its needs” ...

    .. The aphorisms of the great German today amaze with perspicacious accuracy. It is hoped that his words will be heard - only in cooperation with Russia, Germany will achieve greatness and prosperity! And finally, another little-known aphorism: “You yourself cannot create anything; you can only wait until you hear the steps of the Almighty, and then jump and grab the edge of his clothes - that’s the whole point ”

      Ischo a couple of characteristic phrases:
      "Relations between Germany and Russia can be either very good or very bad .."
      "Preventive war with Russia - it's suicide for fear of death..."

      But Bismarck was an atypical German - a "werewolf in uniform" - thinking too outside the box for a Prussian ...

      There they no longer do. request

If Russia, in response to the intervention of a country, eventually defeating it, be it Germany, France, Sweden, then who knows, having come to its territory the male population will knock to zero, take away the territory, introduce polygamy in the country. Now there would be neither Merkelsha nor Holland nor the English foul.

    Yes, Germany does not have its own international policy, everything and everyone is cut by the "black" from overseas, and they will always correct it where necessary and not necessary. This is an occupied country for 70 years
    Yankees, they say that it is their homeland and home. You can ask any gringo in Germany,

    Germany is an occupied country.
    This alone demonstrates the state of armament in their army quite clearly.
    So expecting from them adequate steps towards independence in cooperation with us is simply stupid.
    Well, or say so, in response to such steps, punishment will immediately follow, in the form of a terrorist attack or a stream of migrants.
    In addition, its influence in the EU is severely limited by the European bureaucracy, when all decisions must be dictated by everyone, including American mongrels, such as the Baltic states or Poland.
    So we get an amorphous state structure, incapable of quick and tough decisions.
    The collapse of the EU is inevitable, if only in order to preserve at least some centers for future growth.

    For two and a half years I worked in Germany in a medium-sized company that produces instruments for use in nuclear research. This allowed me to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of the German approach to work. Of course, the minimum number of staff is a strength. There is no bookkeeping and supply department. Accounting was transferred to a specialized company that provides accounting services. Regarding the supply, each employee has the right to order the necessary components. which are delivered to the company in one to two days. Delayed delivery is subject to litigation. The number of working class in the company is two people who are part-time packers of finished products. BUT. In terms of creating new products, one can see obstinacy in upholding our own design solutions, the desire to make a BEAUTIFUL, not a reliable product. Anyone who dealt with German railways in childhood will understand me. Moreover, in upholding their model, they sometimes do not stop at the forgery. It is very typical to hold a large number of various meetings and discussions with a large number of statements with a huge number of relative clauses. As for the attitude of my German colleagues towards Russia and Russians, according to my observations it depended on the interpretation of a particular person. Most engineers simply had no time to talk about the Russian soul and other nonsense, they were very benevolent. Their conversations with me during lunch were mainly about the success of the local football team or their current job. But the higher the position, the greater the interest in politics. When I was leaving, a chef came out to the car and asked me to say something as I understood Putin’s impartiality (of course, Putin was just waiting for me to arrive) that I understood the concrete from the car.

    The author wrote a wonderful article; reading is simply interesting! But in one thing he is wrong, even if Assad is overthrown in Syria, political changes begin, and the people will arrive in Europe, Russia will still be to blame. Even if we surrender Crimea and bomb the Donbass on our own, anyway, after several years of unsuccessful reforms, Russia will be to blame. Even if they just want to eat, Russia is to blame. Alas, our country does not exist in their plans ... They do not need us, they need small, meaningless principalities. And talking about friendship or at least mutual understanding is ridiculous. It's time to accept a simple fact, no one needs us, neither Ukrainians, nor Germans, nor Georgians, no one ... I talked to the people of Donbass who fell from there at the first volleys, in Russia they don’t see themselves. That's all...

      You do not.

      When Willy II started war with the Russian Empire - was Germany also occupied?
      By whom?
      And in 1941 ??

      The Germans just dream of being friends with Russia - but everything is getting in the way: either the Kaiser, the Führer, or the former Gdrovskaya Komsomol member ...

      But the Germans mean - sleep and see the friendship with Russia ...

    The political establishment of Germany, led by Merkel, incited by America, again imagines itself to be the "arbiter of destinies." And, having gathered the Caudle of the "great" powers of Europe, they decided to talk with Russia "from a position of strength", starting to "educate" us with the help of sanctions. Already, such a hooligan approach in politics is sprouting. Turning away from Russia, they understand that they cannot solve global, pressing issues of life throughout Europe without Russia. This is what the lack of independence of thinking and following the lead of America lead to. The political cretinism of the leading European countries is evident.
