Media: Americans' hidden card may not work

68
Washington has created a situation with its policy that “causes understandable anger and indignation of the Russian people,” and talks about NATO expansion at the expense of regular post-Soviet territories are the cause of Moscow’s well-founded alarm. Therefore, to assert that Russia is imposing a new “cold war” on the West is unlikely to be correct, the article by the American politician Patrick Buchanan, published by The American Conservative, says.




The author recalled the recent events in the Baltic Sea related to the maneuvers of Russian planes near the destroyer Donald Cook, not far from Kaliningrad, and the reconnaissance aircraft RC-135. Then these incidents caused a storm of indignation among the US military.

"Why the actions of the Russian military, moving inside Russia, we consider" provocative ", and the actions of the American military, moving in close proximity to the borders of Russia - no", - quotes Buchanan RIA News.

At the same time, in his opinion, the “hidden map” of the United States represented by the European allies might not work at some point, because, for example, 57% of German citizens were against sending their troops to the Baltic States and Poland. ” Approximately the same situation in France and Italy.

The politician stressed that "despite its rhetoric, NATO continues to expand and comes close to the borders of the Russian Federation." “At first, the alliance included three former USSR republics - the Baltic states; now there is talk about the possible admission to NATO of three other former Soviet republics - Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine,” he recalled.

“Russia did not accept the outstretched partnership hand,” said General Philip Breedlove, the Supreme Commander of the United NATO forces in Europe, “and chose the path of hostility.” But why should Putin perceive NATO’s inexorable advance to the east as the “outstretched partnership hand”? ” .

According to Buchanan, "Moscow sends a signal to Washington that the United States keep its spy ships and airplanes at a respectful distance from Russia." However, "we apparently did not understand this signal," concludes the American politician.

        And I think the opposite will work. When ours are banging on NATO bases in the EU, in response to the attack, the summers will explain on the fingers: "You see! We warned! Russia is the aggressor!"
        And Europeans will go gender and non-gender as in the 41st all of Europe in the same direction. And who doesn’t go, they kick in with kicks. We have already gone through this. Or according to the new liberal history of the Russian Federation, only the Germans fought against the USSR?)))

What do you need to buy Kyrgyzstan, Tadjkistan, Uzbekistan, Turkestan besides a little bakshish for the elder bai? Russia miraculously jumped out of this sad martyrology, which does not free it from hard work and great sacrifices in the name of victory. We received the President according to God's will, without bothering in the least. To what extent are the people worthy of such a Gift?

    Again blah blah blah for the smokescreen, and they themselves were ambushed. As soon as the situation allows, they will bite. Particularly annoying, as expected, is the military-demonstration opposition. Afraid of their teeth. We have one way out - two allies.
    Particularly touching is not the acceptance of the "outstretched hand of partnership", which always strives to grab the throat. Bloodsuckers with beautiful speeches.

    In my opinion, and commenting is not necessary a very logical question of the American. But this question is only addressed to the American reader, who is not very interested in foreign policy. And it would be necessary for the congressmen and the military, but those also have their own interests.

    Unfortunately, the words of American politician Patrick Joseph Buchanan are the voice of one crying in the wilderness. There are such units and they do not have access to the main sources of information. Of course it is nice to hear such judgments, but this is not the opinion of the American people (propaganda has already done its thing for a long time) and not the opinion of the American establishment.

    In this economic situation in the SGA, and it is not as rosy as the "hawks" say about it, trying to intimidate other states with their power, in the media from the conservatives ("The American Conservative"), articles of quite sensible people appear. But only as the Russian Federation, China and India will give a significant decline in the economy, you will never wait for these speeches - such is the gangster character of the developed imperialist countries, the leader of which is the SGA. Difficulties in the economy of the SGA are growing - the burden of hegemony, part of which they intend to transfer to the shoulders of their western satellites, and for them turned out to be exorbitant. So you can't calm down - you need to further strengthen the country's defense, and where and when it is possible to repulse their gangs (example of Syria). hi

    Well, what can you say, rightly says the American politician with a sober head. Indeed, NATO is extending its "hand of partnership" to Russia in the form of its expansion to the East. It remains for Moscow to stretch its "leg" in the form of creating additional divisions in the western direction (which S. Shoigu has already announced), installing additional rocket launchers on combat alert and, hello, friends from NATO. How are we going to be friends ?!

Well, the man took aim and bang - bang from a gun. Bear even henna. It turns around to the man, bends it with cancer, dryuchit in full, and lets it go.
    A man runs home, yells from pain and resentment, takes a machine gun and runs to a bear's den. He takes aim, starts to shoot and bam - wedge the tape! Well, the bear grabs the man by the scruff and repeats the procedure.
    The man runs home again, with wild cries, collects all the explosives he is able to find, covers the forest and blows everything up to his mother’s edin.
    A man looks with satisfaction at a huge funnel instead of a forest, and suddenly someone claps him on the shoulder. A man turns around, and this is a bear !!! The bear grabs the man by the scruff of his neck and says:

    “Russia has not accepted the outstretched hand of partnership, General Philip Breedlove, the Supreme Commander of the NATO Joint Forces in Europe, said, and chose the path of enmity.

    He is what it is! This NATO pushed itself to the borders of Russia to greet ... Russia extended a hand of partnership, but she did not understand and almost extended her legs and, with a fright, chose the path of hostility with the furry NATO. And I wanted a partnership with assets with a liability, and it almost grew together, BUT ..!

    Yes, the Yankees are notable lovers of someone else's hands to rake in the heat, but thanks to, among other things, "These Your Internet" sober-minded people so far the majority in the European Union, no matter how diligently they were soldered alcohol traders and intoxicated corrupt "European bureaucrats" drinks

      By the way, saying a very successful machine gun, maybe only our machine gun PKP "Pecheneg" surpasses it

    Yeah, they are increasing - cutting the military budget for 2016


    But the budgets of other NATO members do not need to be taken into account?

    But it’s not the budget, in case of war we have few people. Many hard workers (and most of them) will fight for a rich uncle, superiors who receive unjustifiably high salaries, for traders of speculators, business oligarchs, and other murky characters who suddenly collapsed the USSR have become entrepreneurs. And many of our politicians are ready to send their children to the war like Stalin? Will many workers in the event of war be punished in factories in three shifts, the country's leadership who did not even condemn the characters guilty of looting the state?

    Napoleon, Hitler held out our partnership hands to us ...
    Also, both times there was a kind of European Union against Russia. And England, as always, is aloof and in a position of benefit.
    In the First World War, too, all Europeans made fun of Russia. Especially - "allies": executions of civilians, violence, robbery.
    What kind of trust is there? And their nonsense to the simpleton Gorbachev and the idiot Shevarnadze about how NATO will not expand anywhere?
    Here is Japan with the islands bay. Well, yes, the agreement in the 1960s was pre-executed, but - a condition: the withdrawal of all American troops from the territory and non-participation in the blocs. And so - give it to Kunashir, Iturups ... And then there are American bases. And the 200 mile zone of Japan ...
    So what kind of hands are there? Fingers cannot be extended ...

    And yet, Putin and Abe agreed on something, not for nothing behind closed doors and, moreover, both are silent.
