Military Review

According to the laws of physics

The United States adheres to a policy of weakening Russia and creating pro-American regimes in neighboring states. Such a US policy is the main strategic threat to Russia, says the report International Threats - 2016 of the Valdai Club and the Foreign Policy Agency. In addition, a "weak" Russia will fear a "Chinese expansion." As a result, Moscow will still have to become the "partner" of America, which seeks to contain China.


According to the laws of physics


Discussion club "Valdai" and the agency "Foreign Policy" presented a report on the main threats to Russia in 2016, the newspaper writes "News".

The US policy of weakening Russia and surrounding its cordon with pro-American regimes represents a major strategic threat to our homeland.

This is reported in the report presented by the Valdai International Discussion Club and the Foreign Policy Agency.

Also in a report prepared by a group of Russian experts, including former illegal intelligence officer Andrei Bezrukov, it is reported: “Weak, sandwiched in the depths of the continent, Russia will not be a serious economic competitor and will not be able to form an alternative center of power in Eurasia. A weak Russia will be afraid of Chinese expansion and will be forced to become America’s partner in its main project of the 21st century - in containing China. ”

The program director of the Valdai Club, Andrei Sushentsov, one of the authors of the report, told the Izvestia newspaper that, at present, there are actually two approaches to evaluating US policy toward the Russian Federation. Supporters of the former believe that Washington is seeking to weaken Moscow; supporters of the second are convinced that the Americans pursue their goals, but indirectly damage Russian interests. “Russian interests are still harmed as a result of American actions, since they do not discuss them with us, they do not consider this necessary,” the expert complained.

On the other hand, political scientists admit that, thanks to the success of the operation in Syria, Russia began to find a new modus operandi in relations with the West. "Russia will consolidate as the leading force in the Middle East, capable of effectively conducting expeditionary military campaigns," quotes the publication of experts.

Again, participation in the crisis in the Middle East is fraught with danger for the Russian Federation, the main of which is the risk of a military conflict with Turkey. And this is not overlooked. “Changes are being made to the Russian Defense Plan before 2020. Exercises are being held, during which scenarios of conflict with Turkey are being worked out, ”explains Sushencov.

The document also considers the terrorist threat from Islamic radicals. According to analysts, such will not disappear even in the event of a complete victory over the jihadists in Syria. The accompanying probable scenario in the 2016 year is also pointed out - the collapse of one of the states of Central Asia and the appearance in its place of the next jihadist quasi-state. Tajikistan is especially vulnerable.

The list of other, not so noticeable threats is the potential escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

On the other side of Russia, the source of problems may be the growth of tension in the Far East and Southeast Asia: there is a more pronounced confrontation between China and the US and its allies, the newspaper notes.

The list of immediate threats, noted “Izvestia”, did not hit Ukraine. The situation in Ukraine goes into the category of frozen conflicts, and therefore analysts predict the conservation of the status quo.

"The scenario of a new full-scale war in Donbass cannot be called the most likely," the report quotes. RBC. According to the authors, from the resumption of active hostilities Kiev will keep the position of its Western European partners in the "Norman Four".

The authors believe that the conflict will not be resolved in the first half of 2016. Opposition in the Verkhovna Rada, experts say, will not allow President Poroshenko to carry out a law on elections in the Donbas and constitutional reform.

Western sanctions against Russia in 2016 will not be lifted due to the unresolved conflict in the Donbas. Russia cannot yet effectively counteract sanctions.

We can agree with the theses of this report, says Dmitry Orlov, director general of the Agency for Political and Economic Communications. Moreover, in his opinion, the likelihood of a military conflict with Turkey "has practically come to naught, which was facilitated by a very timely decision on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria." “Ukraine also does not pose any threat to Russia, which is the co-sponsor of the Minsk agreements,” the expert said Reedus.

As for the "threat" of the United States, it is objective. The fact is that the place of Russia is no different from the place of any other country, not excluding the US allies in NATO - Turkey, Germany, Poland. “For Americans, all countries of the world are essentially one person. They perceive this or that country exclusively pragmatically: how much does it contribute or, on the contrary, impede the achievement of the USA of this or that task. Today they are hampered by Turkey - they will ignore Turkey. Tomorrow France will be hindered by their interests in Europe - they will press the French, and so on, ”the political scientist states.

After all, a stone falls on a person’s head, not because he “wants” to kill him. It falls according to the law of nature, and the one whom he struck turned out to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Russia, too, is hindered by the United States "according to the laws of physics": Russia is "too much" in the world, and the Americans cannot simply ignore it. “US activity in the world, therefore, undoubtedly threatens the interests of Russia. The United States realizes its interests in a complex, hegemonic manner. The United States will harm Russia anytime, anywhere. But Russia's opposition is only a side effect of American geopolitical logic. If, according to this logic, it is necessary to enter into conflict with Russia, they will go to it quite calmly, because they have foreseen these costs in advance, ”Orlov believes.

* * *


So, in stating the fact of the American "threat" for Russia there is nothing unusual. And even nothing “personal”, since the USA considers any geopolitical interference (not necessarily of Russian origin) as a reason for opposition. According to some scientists, Turkey and France can also be a hindrance. And the current opposition of Russia is also a “side effect of American geopolitical logic.” The stone falls on the head "according to the laws of physics."

In essence, this is not just geopolitical logic. This state of mind, which, in spite of the emerging multipolar world, continues to claim the role of hegemon - the role of that “exceptional” power, without whose approval no major decision on the planet can do.

    Do not underestimate the threat from a country that has bent half the world, and it doesn’t matter what goals they did! The threat is real! We must remember that we didn’t have easy victories, and even less so. And the article says relations with Russia are a side effect of Amer’s politicians, just remember gentlemen .. there are primary tasks, and there are secondary .. and weakening Russia for Amers is precisely the first priority, since only Russia and China can put them in a belt, they do not consider all the others seriously! You need to play with a serious player seriously, not w pkami throw!

      The US has already missed all the moments when it could really destroy both Russia and China, which means that there will no longer be a second opportunity for them. Thanks to the USSR for the nuclear weapons that we have, if not for them, then Russia would not exist, as the examples of many former socialist countries have shown. The territories remained, even their names remained, and what was in the internal content of that they no longer have, and they are now managed from Washington.

The fact is that the place of Russia is no different from that of any other country, not excluding the US allies in NATO - Turkey, Germany, Poland. “For Americans, all countries of the world are essentially the same. They perceive this or that country exclusively pragmatically: how much it contributes or, on the contrary, impedes the achievement of this or that task by the USA. Today, Turkey is stopping them - they will ignore Turkey. Tomorrow France will hinder their interests in Europe - they will squeeze the French, and so on. ”



        So we need to solve our interests in such a way, nothing personal ... but we cannot shrug off injustice, pass by the truth, it doesn’t work out - another mission.

          If it comes to Putin, if he clearly understands it, then a logical step on his part would be to announce, even if not publicly, even for a narrow circle, the pre-war situation. With an explanation, basta! The jokes are over! stop stuffing your pockets! to clean out all the filth from the authorities, starting from the "blue thief" Dvorkovich and ending with the circle of his neighbors who is completely mired in corruption. Replace them to hell with unmarried people (and there are more than enough of them in the provinces). To each controller, like the Stalinist methods of government ...

            Not later than today, when asked how the Kremlin treats the abusively luxurious wedding of the Ingush thief Gutseriev (according to some estimates, several BILLION RUBLES were spent) Peskov answered - everything is fine! Business has the right to do whatever it pleases.

        Unfortunately, you are wrong in this thesis.
        They could never break us with military force, but a cocktail of economic and domestic political factors always works without fail.
        Everything fits into the logic: for 5 years now they have been choking us economically, at the same time they are trying to arrange a putsch inside the country, but so far they haven’t succeeded, because Pu was able to restore the internal defense structures (FSB, Ministry of Internal Affairs, military), who believe and go after their commander in chief and will do everything to protect the country. But in 89-90 everything was different and despite the huge military power, a collapse occurred.
        We need a mechanism that will clearly screen out any liberal scum on approaches to power in general and the presidential chair in particular.
        Pu is no longer young. Who will be in his place, how the country's approaches will change is not clear. I do not want to praise our president now, but he possesses a number of qualities that are already practically absent in connection with the destruction of the old school of the USSR.

      For the American elite, who grew up on "victory over the USSR," Russia is the loser, so their entire policy is based on this position. For them, we just a priori have no right to contradict their hegemony. Therefore, the number of those wishing to put Us in our place is only growing and will continue to grow.
      Our view, of course, on the events with the collapse of the great Country, is diametrically opposite, since We also experienced more loud defeats.
      Therefore, the confrontation will continue. But unlike the United States, we are ready to negotiate, and this is seen in the West as weakness, however paradoxical it may sound. And all because the United States does not agree with the vanquished.
      Draw conclusions comrade and get ready, nothing good in my opinion is not expected.

              But there is a simple way to "bend" the oligarchs and make them personally work for society - a progressive tax. And money is not the main thing here - a new systemic factor will appear. Yes, let them earn at least billions - 90% will go to tax. Those for whom the main thing is, let them earn - for them this is a kind of self-affirmation, even if they have to hand over money to the treasury, well, something like a gertrude on their chest. Yes, and among the people it will be much easier for them - you can calmly say "and that you are rolling a barrel, for my taxes a thousand people like you can feed well with their families for a year." He does not want to pay taxes - let him develop production or conduct R&D in new areas - no one will say a word - the money will go to targeted development, in those areas in which this oligarch, if he thinks, can use it more effectively. And the view of the other at the country and at the state structures will be different - proprietary: how is this money used by my money? And he may not like a lot at once. Well, you know, that oligarch will have more influence than an ordinary person in the field of putting things in order.
              Well, grabbers will burn out, even if they get into the pocket of their corporation, things will go worse without recharge: the result is bankruptcy. So the oligarchic intragroup selection will go. Well, a hard worker, in principle, a form of ownership to the bulb - if only they paid normally and did not scoff.
              And let our government not cry about the difficult administration of the progressive tax. The main task of the state is to assign and collect taxes. And if he does it, then it’s worthlessly fulfilling his duties, i.e. they must be driven and replaced by those who can handle it.

                  Guys, there's a simple recipe here too. Soon elections to this very State Duma. So to vote not for Makarov, but for the communists (although I don't like Zyuganov with his rallies and I am not very impressed with the ladle) - they have a progressive tax hammered into the program. Well, there you can also look at nationalization from a new angle, if it works, then let it work. And this can be done selectively - I don't remember exactly, there is somewhere in the laws about ineffective owners. In principle, instead of dividing it into all sorts of "isms" according to ownership, you can somehow link everything into a single system according to the principle of "all sorts of mothers are needed" - for example, does it make sense for some shop or cafe to organize a collective form of ownership when a private trader can do much better ... Yes, and history is very thick at "moms" hints: under Stalin after the war in the socialist USSR, 53% of consumer goods were made by non-state handicraft artels, and in the 80s of the 20th century (I do not know how now) in the citadel of US imperialism, up to 40% of "natural products" (mainly in strategic areas) was produced at state-owned or state-controlled companies. So about the unprecedented advantages of capitalism, the free market and effective private owners, the Gaidars hung noodles for us, planting "wild capitalism" of the mid-19th century at the end of the 20th century XNUMX. By the way, it was under the influence of the USSR that capitalism was "shaken down" in the West.

                No taxes will change the system.

                Need to change the system. But before you do something, you need to understand why change it, how to change it, and what result it strives for.

                Unfortunately, none of the commentators understands what capitalism is. What does a system crisis mean?

                Why capitalism is the basis of all conflicts.

                Why is the goal of capitalism based on personal interest, rather than the pursuit of general development, material.

                The problems of wars are embedded in an economic model that has exhausted its role.

                Need a new transition.

                The tax policy does not change the system.

              The Americans will not come. The Russian Federation has organized a strong state, which is able to stand sovereignty.

              This stage of development of the Russian Federation has passed. But thanks to a strong state, the Russian Federation can switch to a qualitative level of development. such a topic is more relevant.

    But the "guys-democrats" (Nadezhdin, Stankevich, Ryzhkov and so on) foaming at the mouth are proving that there was no threat, and will not be. In their opinion, the Americans are a civilized people, very intelligent and understand that we have nuclear weapons. And we (the Russians) are dark, wild, not cultural, we ourselves invent threats to ourselves, so we live badly.
    Russia's current confrontation is also a “side effect of American geopolitical logic”

According to the President of Poland, an increase in military presence in Central and Eastern Europe is mandatory. “We want the actual military presence of NATO so that the Alliance’s soldiers are constantly in Central and Eastern Europe,” said Andrzej Duda.
    According to the Polish leader, the actions of Russia, which "annexed" Crimea and "continues to support the separatists in Ukraine", are unprecedented.
    “You cannot condone Russia. Europe cannot afford to ease sanctions against Russia, because that would be the adoption of an aggressive policy. We must demand a return to such geopolitical relations as they were before the annexation of Crimea. This means that Russia must leave Crimea, ”said Andrzej Duda.

    2. Here is the pearl "Russia will gain a foothold as a leading force in the Middle East, capable of effectively conducting expeditionary military campaigns." Is it possible to trade cannon fodder in the B-East? But in Europe, you can’t put things in order?
    3. "Western sanctions against Russia in 2016 will not be lifted due to the unresolved conflict in Donbass" What are they drinking there? Sanctions will NEVER be lifted! An instrument has been found to disunite and simultaneously weaken Europe and Russia. Live in the real world, not in dreams.
    4. "The fact is that the place of Russia is no different from the place of any other country, not excluding the US NATO allies - Turkey, Germany, Poland." Yes, guys, they lowered Russia, below the plinth, we are Poland, that's all. If amers need to remove the government in Poland, tomorrow it will be a new and proud Polish flag will fly off the coast of China.

    The USA needs territories and minerals. The Russian spirit will first be broken and then uprooted. Not one more concession, comrades, leaders of the state! One-sided initiatives only cause laughter and clapping in our opponents. Either we stand to death and are afraid of us, or they will trample us and forget that there was once a great Russian people. Russia does not have friends, it has partners, and they only have business and nothing personal, not even letting in the table. They have their own wedding, we have our own. But let them remember, "WHO WILL COME TO US WITH A SWORD FROM THE SWORD AND DIE."

    After all, a stone does not fall on a person’s head because he “wants” to kill him. He falls according to the law of nature, and the one he hit is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Usually a stone falls on the head if someone threw it. Here the RF Criminal Code is more important than the laws of physics. Our so-called "laws of physics" are applicable to one single system, in other conditions they do not work. With the title of the article, the author "chased the rating."
    The Valdai Discussion Club and Foreign Policy Agency presented a report on the main threats to Russia in 2016, the Izvestia newspaper writes.

    Information of this kind is extracted and analyzed in other places, then decisions are made. Now think about the value of this report, written in the face of a lack of information and limited opportunities for its analysis. What then is the article about, but nothing.

    As a result, Moscow will still have to become the "partner" of America, pursuing the goal of containing China.

    They want to give too small a role to Russia.
    Russia should not become someone else's partner, but should be a leader, to which countries adjoining, having the same concepts of good and evil with Russia.
    This is the historical destination of our country.

          It is not the same thing - to serve the United States without any measure, as Klamina and the Young Europeans do, and to establish relations with the United States without deflection, as Andropov did. All that is needed is to take for granted that Russia is no longer an empire and that the leading force in the world is the United States. Well, work inside the country, break out of feudalism into capitalism. I never called for the West to surrender everything at any price. He only called for the normalization of relations with him, and this is not at all the same thing.

      While we will solve internal problems, let us miss the external situation, thereby giving partners the opportunity to either take us warm or strengthen their positions to such an extent that when we start solving external problems it will be too late to drink Borjomi. So external tasks are very important, because without solving them there will be nothing to solve internal. It’s just that this internal will come under the control of partners! What they (partners from behind puddles) and achieve !!!

    The most offensive thing is that our "native" leadership, including not excluding Putin, is playing into their hands. How can you, having all these reports, all this knowledge, do nothing to change either the economic or the political course? Including the internal one. Everyone yells that they want to destroy us, they want to change the regime, to arrange a color revolution. And they do nothing. NOTHING.
    With our money they buy debt instruments of the same USA. Credit resources are not available for our industry. Strangled by taxes, requisitions. Small businesses and self-employed seem to have generally decided to lime. Populate the country with migrants of other religions.
    What sanctions are we talking about?
    No one except our leaders has inflicted more damage on our country. Here is the main threat.
    Medvedev, Dvorkovich, Nabiullina, Ulyukaev and other riffraff, these are co-workers. All Putin signs.

    A couple of thoughts in connection with the article.
    The author did not contribute anything of his own. Just a retelling-annotation of the reports of the "Valdai Club". But many disagree with this assessment.
    I will explain my thought:
    1. For states worth the task of "containing" China (read "collapse") while neutralizing Russia as an ally of the PRC. In other words: to prevent Russia and China from getting closer in the confrontation with the United States. To solve this problem, the States will arrange an "arc of instability" around the perimeter of the Russian Federation, so that it is engaged in "extinguishing" fires in the former Soviet republics, so that it has no time for China and the rest of the world. Means for solving the problem: Ukraine - Donbass, Crimea; Tajikistan; Armenia - Azerbaijan (with a hearth in Karabakh), bearded in the Caucasus, liberals in million-plus cities, etc.
    2. States withdrew from BV: not enough resources for everything. He cannot leave Israel alone with the Arabs. Therefore, friendship between the Russian Federation and Israel will be pedaled as a guarantor of the preservation of the Jewish state. Russia will restrain Iran in its hatred of Jews. At the same time, it will prevent the Turks from climbing into this region.
    3. Russia Ukraine. Sanctions.
    I agree with the assessment of colleagues Mavrikiy (Today, 08: 05)
    Sanctions will not be lifted NEVER! An instrument of separation and simultaneous weakening of Europe and Russia was found.
    - Strongly and essentially correctly said !!!
    Ukraine is the headache of the Russian Federation. The problem can be solved only by changing the clique and establishing the status of a "non-aligned state". If there is a provocation - an attempt to resolve the issue with the DPR / LPR by military means - there will be an operation "forcing peace" ... Consequences? Possible section Nezalezhnaya between "interested parties". The script is already there.
    4. Everything is clear with Crimea: they will yap, maybe even arrange provocations, but in the Russian Federation no one will dare to "lift a leg."
    5. About the US-RF conflict.
    Orlov is wrong. As long as we are strong, and the United States does not have an exceptional military advantage (super-duper wunderwaffles!), They will not go to an open military conflict. Fools and suicides are not kept in the Bilderberg Club (by definition!). It’s in the tradition of the Anglo-Saxons to incite others - but to stand in line for zvizdyulami yourself is dumb here!
    And the last.
    A summit on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons is taking place now. We did not go, because there will be an initiative - to deadline TNW. The "peacekeeping" States will try to play on this. We did not give them such an opportunity ... But the PR campaign will be spun! Russia is against disarmament, here he is, an aggressor, a champion of war!

    Searching and hunting down external enemies has become a trend. Yes * friends * there are enough, sleeping and seeing Russia weak or fragmented. However, internal enemies are more dangerous and this is not only * beloved * liberals, they are enough among the so-called * patriots *. Has anyone thought about the mass appearance of these * patriots * and what they really did on the development of the country. So Sechin, instead of loading the Kazan Helicopter Plant with orders (production dipped by tens of%), 3 billion euros are given to Italians to supply AgustaWestland AW189 helicopters. http://www.business-gazeta.ru/article/306348/. And there are many similar examples. Not talking about sons * patriots * -successful businessmen. The country must be developed and put in order inside (including among the elite and in the minds).

    If, according to this logic, it is necessary to enter into conflict with Russia, they will go to it completely calmly, because these costs are foreseen by them, ”Orlov said.
    Something here I can not agree with that what what counts Orlov !!! Americans are now in a difficult situation and open conflict is not profitable for them. Moreover, China is increasingly opposing them! And just with two or maybe three (North Korea) simply can not be mastered. I think like that what !

    The nature of the threat from the United States does not seem objective to me at all because the threat is subjective, personalized. I would like to recall a number of documents adopted by the USA before they assumed the role of world hegemon: Allen Dallas Doctrine 1945, US National Security Council Directive 20/1 1948, US Congress Act PL 86-90 1959, Harvard and Houston projects. All this is about the destruction of Russia, no matter how it is called. If all the rest for the States can be adversaries, then Russia is only an enemy, which, by the way, constantly breaks from the language of Western politicians.

    participation in the crisis in the Middle East is fraught with danger for the Russian Federation, the main of which is the risk of a military conflict with Turkey.

    Small amendment:
    participation in the Middle East crisis is fraught for Turkey in the worst case total destruction in the event of a military conflict with the Russian Federation (and in the best case, the transformation of its eastern half into sovereign Kurdistan).
