Carter: US does not push Russia to develop nuclear potential


"I associate this with the driving force of their feelings that nuclear weapon - one of the few things that guarantees their status in the world ",
said the minister to the Vox edition.

At the same time, he noted that Moscow’s position that America “is boosting the arms race is wrong.”

The agency recalls that in recent years Washington has virtually curtailed military cooperation with the Russian Federation and sharply intensified its military activities in the east of the EU. Next year, US spending on “ensuring European security” will grow almost 4 times - from $ 900 million to $ 3,4 billion.

        Carter: US does not push Russia to develop nuclear potential

        It has been useless to push Russia for a long time. Not those times, thank God.

          US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter does not occupy the area of ​​false talent propaganda from Goebbels. It was Goebbels who always emphasized before WWII and during the war itself on the propaganda of Hitlerite Germany’s media half-truths, which are more effective than outright lies.
          Carter's statement
          I attribute this to the driving force behind their feelings that nuclear weapons are one of the few things that guarantees their status in the world.

          Yes, it's true - but only half of it! But where did these feelings come from in the Russian Federation, and does it need this status of Russia for what?
          They arose from there that in the unipolar world, led by a nuclear naval power - the United States - that emerged after the collapse of the USSR:
          1) it was the United States with its military bases and NATO bases under the leadership of the Pentagon that advanced and encircled the Russian Federation with a semicircle along the entire perimeter of its state borders. It is their missile defense that threatens Russia;
          2) it was the United States that initiated economic sanctions against Russia to weaken Russia and hold it in its tenacious hands as a victim country;
          3) it is the United States and Great Britain that cut off the Russian Federation from the shores of the Baltic and Black Seas by the Russophobic policy of buffer and border states - Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Georgia, Turkey, etc .;
          4) it is the United States, with its collective West, that is provoking the situation in the BV with its provocations with the aim of military advancement closer to Russia's borders through the penetration and subjugation of the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. And not only this;
          5) a similar situation off the Pacific coast, etc., etc.
          The USA and Great Britain, the centers of the "sea" civilization, have not changed their long-term historical policy aimed at destroying Russia as the center of the "land" civilization, and will never change it. Therefore, Russia needs to contain these nuclear powers, since they threaten and will threaten Russia's very existence.

        "Carter: US is not pushing Russia to develop nuclear potential"
        That's what I thought. It would be insanely interesting for you to hold a teleconference with American ordinary citizens. Like in the 80s. Now it would be a show of the century!

          Do you think there would be "ordinary American citizens" ?? Amerskie special services would have worked out such a show in advance to the smallest detail and would have tried to expose Russia in the nastiest light on it. And if, thanks to our special services, the amers didn’t get a damn thing, they would either ban any mention of such a failure, or would include all Western media resources to turn everything upside down. Remember inform. a war against Russia after the defeat of the Georgian army in 2008.

      The Pentagon does not provoke Russia to modernize nuclear weapons, the Kremlin does it on its own initiative,

      Of course, I understand that this jacket, with the rank of Minister of Defense, would very much like Russia to have no nuclear weapons at all, and you see very much that it offends Russia that it does not ask for mattress permission to upgrade or not the Strategic Missile Forces, to increase defense capability or not, or Is Russia closer to NATO? Well, yes, Russia must have planted a junta near its borders in Kiev, probably Russia has sent troops into spratland, and not NATO. Damn, well, not that stupid pentacle from the Pentagon.

        In one, this imperfection is clearly right
        “I attribute this to the driving force behind their feelings that nuclear weapons are one of the few things that guarantees their status in the world»
        The stump is clear, guarantees !!!! There would be no nuclear weapons - there would be no Russia. In the 90s, Alkash Sverdlovsk sawed, sawed the army - didn’t saw it ... And after the army, Russia would also cut pieces by 20-30 and arrange 20-30 Serbia or Ukraine on the territory of Russia ....

        God forbid, those who remember the 90s see again. God forbid anyone who does not remember to see them ....

        PS And, of course, Carter fantasized slightly, to put it mildly, with "a few things". That's why Russia stands in the throat with the West, because things are not "a little" ....

      Even if the United States completely destroys its nuclear weapons, this is not the basis of Russia to abandon its own. The US Armed Forces, basically, are imprisoned for war on foreign territory. The Russian Armed Forces are imprisoned to repulse attacks on their territory. Strategic nuclear weapons are a major opportunity to get the US to experience what it prepares for others.

    Modernization of the nuclear potential is a deeply secret process and is hardly accessible even to the intelligence of the "hegemons". Therefore, he speaks of this "presumably". And what a sadness to us. We have our own affairs, and our own vision of the world, in which the hegemons and democratizers sit on the "opera" exactly.

    And in the EU, every day everything is safer and safer.
    "East of Europe" is Ukraine chtoli? - but Europe is afraid to let them into its members. And Kiev made it clear that it is rightly afraid.
    The Pentagon is lying - butter.

    Well, how to say does not push ...
    But a bunch of missile defense at our borders?
    In my opinion, it’s such a great motivation for modernization.
    And again, the status in the world is determined not only by the number and caliber of trunks ... though America does not understand this.

    Why provoke Russia? A Russian person is an intelligent person, he even has enough of a hint. Here the United States hinted and the Russians immediately reacted. And no one accuses the States of provocations. It is clear to everyone that the exercise at the Adazi training ground in Latvia to drop a nuclear charge from a B-52 is just a routine exercise.

    Yes, starting with a nuclear attack on chiroma and Nagasaki, with the coups and power takeovers of many non-nuclear states, the US is not pushing anyone to develop a nuclear potential.
    The United States simply leaves no choice)))

    I agree with the second part of the statement. But the Pentagon also provokes Russia.

    Naturally, on their own initiative. As this guarantees the status of a country that cannot be hit with impunity. There are plenty of examples of delivering such attacks by at least the United States, even by the NATO bloc. Yes, and the availability of modern nuclear weapons and their means of delivery anywhere in the world makes any contacts with NATO countries more constructive.
