Military Review

The analytical program of Mikhail Leontyev "However," 23 March 2016

89



John Kerry visits Moscow regularly. The last visit took place in December 2015. However, some analysts are sure that the US Secretary of State has a special mission now.

On secret signs of diplomacy, hidden maneuvers and political illusions - in the author's comments by Mikhail Leontiev.

However, hello! US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Moscow on an official visit today. However, the entourage of this visit is not quite standard.
John Kerry officially announced 15 in March of his intention to visit Moscow, the day after Vladimir Putin announced the withdrawal of the Russian military group from Syria. Then, it was the American side that made persistent requests to meet Kerry with Putin, in addition to talks with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Usually, the American side, to put it mildly, does not pedal its initiative to organize such meetings. And here ... It seems that Kerry should give Putin some extremely important message. We have already talked about the "transition from confrontation to a limited partnership."

"In essence, there is a frozen conflict in which the two sides act against each other. And the only way out here is negotiations ... From my point of view, the politician who could be most seriously considered by Putin is John Kerry ... After numerous Obama's statements on Putin probably don’t want to talk to him, "said Harlan Ulman.

Harlan Ulman is a military strategist, political analyst, considered very close to Secretary of State and former presidential candidate John Kerry. We emphasize that this can only be the beginning of negotiations, which can hardly be quick and effective. Here, the view of American analysts seems interesting to us. George Friedman, founder and former head of Stratfort, who was called private CIA.

"They (Russians), unfortunately, do not understand how the United States is organized ... So they see some Donald Trump and think that this is a threat to the regime because they do not understand that the institution of presidential power is very weak. And if this place remains empty - everything will be fine. There is such a misunderstanding about political systems: we don’t believe that Putin is popular, but they cannot understand how weak the president’s figure is. Everyone asks, what does Obama want? he has the power to do what he wants. He has to have The case with the two-chambers Congress, the Supreme Court, 50 states ... In the US, it’s hard to do anything at all. This is what the founding fathers wanted. They didn’t want to create an effective government ... But the US being in continuous motion, everyone is doing very slowly. Especially foreign policy ... So I think that in a certain sense, the Russian President has more room for maneuver than the American one, "says Friedman.

Friedman warns us against excessive hopes and illusions. Nevertheless, the Americans, as Churchill said, will always find the right solution, having tried all the others before that. The question is how much they have already tried.

“Obama’s summit with Putin is needed, although Obama is leaving the post. The problem is that I don’t think that Putin feels that Obama is his equal. So there’sn’t enough interest in filling such a summit with serious content. That’s why The visit of Secretary of State Kerry to Moscow is very important for trying to start negotiations, and negotiations on Syria will be extremely difficult because of the involvement of many parties with different interests in the problem .... And how to solve this is a big question, but the solution of these problems lead to a great deal between US and Russia, which will eventually lead to the lifting of sanctions, and also include Ukraine, ”says Harlan Ulman.

Notice, this is not what we said.

        resolving these problems should lead to a big deal between the US and Russia, which will eventually lead to the lifting of sanctions

        Again, in the press, under different sauce, sanctions are lifted.
        As if this is the meaning of the real existence of Russia.

        Sanctions led to the fact that at least part of our market was closed from external companies.
        And this is good.

        If the sanctions are lifted, then our market will again be open to the bourgeoisie and as a result, our producers will die without being formed.
        So we will be a colony?
        Work for foreign capital, and for this we will be allowed to eat Italian cheese and ski once a year in the Alps.
        Is this what the people of capital want?

            The fact is established precisely. Ignoring it is stupid, as well as minus the author of the voice acting. As long as there is a resource of the Soviet Strategic Rocket Forces, there is a chance to get out of the colonial state.

          And here is the answer to what was in the red suitcase
          Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov warned of “undisguised ordering” under the guise of journalistic investigations, which are being prepared for publication in the Western media. About it on Monday, March 28, the correspondent reports "Lenti.ru."

          “This is about personally [the Russian President Vladimir] Putin, about attempts to get to his family, about childhood friends. About offshore companies and the large number of businessmen that Putin hadn’t seen in their eyes, ”Peskov said.

          He told reporters about the requests made "in an interrogative manner" received by the Kremlin administration. Requests were sent by the International Consortium of Journalistic Investigations, as well as a "well-known news agency." From Peskov’s point of view, some NGOs, special services and individual media outlets joined the Russian election campaign even before it began. Moscow in response is ready to defend honor and dignity legally.

        both options are acceptable ... but both options say only one thing that the Americans decided to negotiate .. by any means .. there was also one stuffing in there .. very drawn to the duck. but there is no smoke without fire. http://politobzor.net/show-86443-hillari-klinton-ukraina-dlya-pereezda-ss

        “An unexpected statement was made by the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, in an interview regarding the future of the United States,” said Ros Childs, a leading American publication ABC News.
        .
        So, to a correspondent's question about the future of the country, Hillary Clinton unexpectedly answered that the United States cannot ignore the significant deterioration of the geophysical situation in the Yellowstone National Park and the San Andreas Fault, which threatens catastrophic consequences for North America and threatens its very existence.

        .

        According to Mrs. Clinton, there is very little time left to maintain the independence and further prosperity of the United States, and therefore it is necessary to more resolutely and consistently consider the issue of transferring American statehood to European territory. The main option for such a resettlement should be considered the territory of Ukraine, the climatic conditions of which are most favorable for American citizens, however, due to some circumstances, the solution to this issue is in jeopardy.

        .

        “We should not abandon this territory, as the most favorable for the global American relocation, because of the position of Russia and will continue to coordinate international pressure to return Crimea to a single territorial space as of February 2014. In addition, it is necessary to carry out preliminary work on the inclusion in the future European United States of the territories of several Eastern European states - Poland, Hungary, Romania and the Baltic countries. Thus, we can expand the necessary living space so as not to feel cramped and have the prospect of further industrial and economic development. ” Clinton said.

Once I didn’t manage to get into the EU, I wanted to get into the USA. And not just like that, but with the subsequent seizure of neighboring territories, thanks for not eastern ones ...

            From the same "speech". Protoukry would hardly have reached such thoughts.
            “When asked about the fate of the citizens of the countries indicated by her, Hillary noted that this issue is not of paramount importance, because, based on the current situation, those living in these territories will be happy to receive citizenship of the new state - the European United States.”

            Although the future American president does not promise to give such an opportunity to everyone - some of the locals will be evicted to the Middle East and African countries.

            “This is an inevitable process of geopolitical changes, when strong states occupy the vitally necessary territory of weak, hopeless countries, which, as history has shown, would cease to exist.”

            «The European United States is obliged to occupy the territory in which statehood has gone into a coma, with no prospect of recovery. Today, of course, this is Ukraine, which occupies a significant and economically advantageous territory, which the local authorities have not been able to rationally manage for a quarter of a century, and in which the whole world has been observing from year to year only a progressive increase in social, state, demographic and economic degradation. ”

            A similar solution will be for the countries of the Baltic region.

            In conclusion of this frank confession, Hillary added “optimistic notes”.

            “I hope that the European United States will be able to adequately replace these non-state misunderstandings on the European platform. As a result, we will find a common language with Russia and China and become good neighbors and equal trading partners who do not need any wars and upheavals.»

              Dear, it sounds interesting, of course. It’s only a little like the truth. Such projects are being carried out secretly. And in open form it’s almost a declaration of war for Russia. It’s the same as the Russians with all the bears, balalaikas and dolls moving to Mexico, on their warm diet tequila ...
              It is doubtful. And about the eviction of locals to Africa and the Middle East, it’s also armed resistance on the spot.
              Even the self-destruction of Ukrainians through civil war and epidemics leaves behind a huge number of questions, just the technical capabilities to seize territories.
              Now, if it implies the departure of oligarchs-Varangians-Jews to the reign of Ukraine, business to the ruling elite of the USA with all the capitals and governing structures, then this is another matter.
              It is interesting to know the source and place of this speech. It is desirable to be printed in the USA. Comments of Americans and Ukrainians. However, the old woman already promised about UFOs, a fact.

        Well, what about Ukraine, the West seems to have merged it completely. The first round for Putin. Otbilsya. Moreover, he showed that he was ready for concrete steps. Although it was difficult, it was given. The West will now, I think, change the strategy to a different, more "soft" -information war. England will act as a locomotive here, since it has centuries-old experience, and it has long since become a haven for fugitive garbage from the Russian Federation.
        Here is the Schuster's video (I believe that he manipulates public opinion with his selections of the "most honest media in the world"), and here between the lines it is said about the drain of Ukraine.

      The misunderstanding is apparently due to the fact that the nature of power in our country and in the United States is different. In our country, the king, this is a person more or less not dependent on money bags. And, in the United States, the president is initially a representative of the financial and industrial group that is currently in power. Therefore, they cannot understand "how the head of state can be independent?" For them, the very presence of Putin is a HSP.

          The monarchy in Russia will cease to exist only with the end of Russia itself. Tsar, emperor, general secretary, president, these are just words. The essence has never changed. A strong head of state, the country flourishes, a weak one, on the contrary. It was not in vain that Ivan Vasilyevich impaled and chopped off the heads of every boyars and other Berezovsky so that they knew their place and did not climb into power. And, in my opinion, right. Because the Tsar is not a person, but a function. It was not for nothing that "They were crowned to the kingdom" earlier. There is such a sacrament in Orthodoxy.
          In the West, the situation is different. There are financially industrial groups that periodically agree among themselves. And they are called, say, the Democratic Party (South) and the Republican (North). This is the crown of democracy. And, also, in their opinion: true freedom. laughing

    Foreign policy has long been turned into a game of chess. In order to resolve one controversial moment, you can create many others and use them to resolve everything at once, including the first one. And such a complex chain can have more than a dozen options for moves, but the best move should be the only one. Therefore, the Syrian issue is very important at the moment. And everyone understands what is vital. And it is better not to rush with Ukraine, or use someone’s blunder in their favor.

    "Debriefing", in my opinion, should begin with the persistence of the American side in holding the meeting. TE, ministerial meetings at various venues, telephone conversations, and other methods are clearly not enough. Not in terms of quantity, but in terms of the problem.
    At first, in general, the president’s workload was diplomatically announced, and that the meeting did not fit into the schedule. Like, go through the woods, today we are not interested.
    But, it seems to me, the problem began to bulge out from under the cover. And to solve it unilaterally it is not possible or super costly.
    Most likely, ours have the concept of a problem. Know the purpose of the visit in advance, all the nishtyaks on the shelves, "cookies" - this is to the neighbors.
    Now another, why not Obama? The point is not the significance or insignificance of the agenda. Most likely, they just don’t want to talk to him, or it’s useless - he’s already a corpse. As an option, the proposals of more influential persons. Perhaps not a state bottling.
    But the most annoying thing is why a personal meeting, why so persistently ...?
    You can guess forever. If there will be official statements, no more than five percent of the topics discussed will be presented publicly. Five to ten more allowed. The rest is dosed, to the extent of the duties for two or three.
    What topic could lead to the meeting? Not Donbas, definitely. And not the presidency of Assad. They don’t even pull together. Let Crimea - what is such an urgency?
    No, something caught fire. Listed, can only be a subject nishtyakov. Like sanctions.
