Russian Defense Ministry - Pentagon: "What would you do without us?"

65
The representative of the US Department of Defense James Clapper recently announced another version of the main threats to the United States. At this time, in the main “list”, which is remarkable, there were no terrorists of the so-called “Islamic State”. According to Clapper, the greatest danger to the United States is Russia and China. The Russian defense department commented on the statement by a US military official.


Russian Defense Ministry - Pentagon: "What would you do without us?"


Comment Major General Igor Konashenkov:
We were not surprised by the loud statements of the American security officials, who saw in Russia the main threat to the national security of the United States. A similar wave rises annually at the same time. The reason is simple - a discussion in Congress of the size of the military budget for the next year.

Indeed, as soon as the Pentagon is required to convince congressmen to increase the level of funding for the military department, various lists of threats to American security immediately appear, in which the word "Russia" invariably appears in recent years. Previously, such a threat was determined by the USSR.

Official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:
It is important to remember that the “Russian threat” since the middle of the last century has been the most successfully “sold” threat of the Pentagon not only to the US Congress, but also to NATO partners. And what would they do without us?

    "Russian Threat" is a "brand" or "mantra" of the 20th Century, you don't even need to pay, but you will still get a "bonus".

      This is such a game, give money and more, and then Russia is going to attack and we don’t even have diapers! But if there are a lot of diapers, we will drop it with them! And demonstrate ready-to-throw products.

        Considering that the Pentagon has turned ("overgrown") into an entirely commercial structure of military officials, i.e. the systematic privatization of state power structures by military officials - from private armies to private military medicine and military construction; it is clear that the expansion of the market for state employees, as such, is carried out due to the absorption of the US state budget by military officials through lobbying government orders into their private property structures.
        In other words, power in the United States is shifting to private military structures, in which similar civilian industries are supplanted. Those. the country of the United States is capitalistly militarized and becomes especially dangerous for other countries around the world. Such a process is the inevitable dead end path to the 3 World War.

              And in Congress, it means fools are definitely sitting if every year they peck on the same bait ...

              The fact of the matter is that in the US Congress not “fools” are sitting, but the so-called “Lobbyists” of the interests of privatized military structures and industries. In fact, this is ordinary corruption.
              T.N. "lobbyism" and "corruption" are new words only in the liberal sense. In general, in Russia, such phenomena in society have always been called official acquisitiveness, theft and embezzlement of the state treasury and extortion.

                In America, the words "corruption" and "lobbying" are synonymous.
                When America needs to cover a hole in the military budget or cover loans to banks, Congress simply gives the go-ahead for turning on the printing press.
                America is not afraid of economic crises - while the whole world uses the dollar, America uses the whole world.

      Yes, in vain. It would be necessary to register a trademark and pro to use. T-shirts there, badges, stripes, baseball caps with this sign will probably go very well in the American market ... Maybe they will stop showing Russian fools with a large army in games.
      This I mean that reasonable and calm explanation does not seem to act on them. We must somehow have a different approach to communication.

    It `s naturally. ISIS is the brainchild of the Pentagon and the CIA, and the main igilist, Erdogan, was chosen as the performer in order to rob foreign countries and sell cheap VSA. This is indicated by both Wikilix, Mr. Asange, and Mr. Snowden! Now a huge number of refugees need to be sent to the permanent residence of the USA! In the European Union, the igil will create its own caliphate!
