Military Review

The incomprehensible pride of "proud Latvia"

120
May 4 is small, but proud Latvia celebrated the next day of the declaration of the country's independence, as we all remember, specifically from the USSR.


A military parade in honor of this event took place in the small town of Kraslava in Latgale.



In the very Latgale, which so selflessly saved, trying to return to the fold of democratic values ​​in a memorable show on the BBC channel, using nuclear weapons and other means of cultural deterrence against aggressive Russia, which provoked an outbreak of separatist sentiment there. It is in this Latgale region, which is now predominantly populated by Russian-speaking citizens, and therefore causing the particular concern of the authorities of an endangered, but “independent” country, in a small town that, by a strange whim of fate, is located very close to the Russian border.

Well ... military parades, especially in honor of Independence Day, is the sovereign business of each sovereign state. And on occasion, I want to digress a little and remember, but what exactly is a “military parade” itself?

Military parades are known to mankind since the days of ancient Persia and Rome. Initially, they were held to commemorate big victories, like the Roman "Triumphs". Parades were also of particular importance as the highest award: a symbol of honoring the heroes of the generals who distinguished themselves on the battlefields and the greatest rulers. Of course, during times of special demand for bread and spectacles, parades were actively used to amuse citizens and raise the patriotic spirit, as well as for the drill of soldiers, as a means of maintaining them in the proper tone. Also, quite quickly, the great advantage of military parades in the matter of intimidating the conquered peoples and maintaining them, these very peoples, in an appropriate tone was recognized.

And over the years, little has changed!

Although now military parades are believed to have acquired such value as attractiveness for tourists, but now it will be a vain assumption to think that this was not always the case.

Commemoration of great victories, demonstration of power, demonstration of power over the conquered, commemoration of commanders, inspiration of citizens and non-citizens, these are all the motives that guided the organizers of any military parades throughout all ages! And such things, like the review of the troops, drill training, sometimes served as good reasons in the absence of timely victories, but only.

And I think that a special line in history World military parades should enter mentioned above. Of course, the participation of foreign military in parades is not some kind of wonder, such kind of know-how! But somehow, the assumption that the US military took part in it as representatives of the vassal's country does not stand up to criticism!)) And the delegation of the military of the union state, which arrived to designate the strength of the relationship, also doesn’t look like much the fact that these same American military are quietly stationed in Latvia itself, and the gallant Latvian military do not disdain at all their equipment, weapons and ammunition.

Of course, the highlight of the parade, as is customary in modern times, has become aviation: British fighters taking off from a military base in Estonia. But somehow there is no point in particularly commenting on this fact! After all, it’s completely understandable even to a fool that when foreign soldiers march on your land on foreign equipment, and foreign aircraft make a celebratory flight over your head, then there is clearly some kind of substitution, not only that it looks like a perverted one, with special cynicism, banter!

In short, such a moment, as the main motivating factor, that is, the goal pursued by this extremely strange procession, absolutely defies comprehension, taking into account the understanding of specific, such as those listed above, features of this kind of events.

If, for example, we assume that this is indeed a holiday for citizens in order to demonstrate the pride and independence of the state, stirring up their patriotic feelings, then, really, the most unfortunate format was chosen! ..

If this event was intended to intimidate and suppress potential enemies ... but God ... who? Zimbabwe? .. So they are far away! And maybe the fifth most powerful army in the world according to Petro Poroshenko? So they seem to be friends? .. Riddle! ..

But I still have a version! And precisely because of the existence of such, I am above and suggested that a new milestone has been opened in the world history of military parades. But the thing is that during the time Latvia was in that state, which the Latvians tried to remember in such an amusing and inadequate way, the Latvians achieved tremendous success. And if we talk about a catastrophic reduction in population, "for example, in the same Latgale almost twice," this is already a move, then talking about the Latvian army, or rather what was left of it, is quite possible without much damage to reputation. Fortunately, the question is not greasy, because there are few hunters to speculate on what is simply not there.

And Latvia, it just so happened, at a certain stage in the evolution of its independence, "God, I so often have to repeat this word, so absurd in existing circumstances, that sometimes I want to ask myself - is it true?" reached that state, when the troops simply - no, no. And over time, when an understanding was ripe in some minds that the country desperately needs at least something like national identity, and in time there was a good reason to cherish it in the person of the “Russian threat”, from which only Latvia, coupled with Ukraine, it suddenly turned out that even the strongest formulation of such an epic thesis makes even the most upsetting Latvian patriots laugh to the pain of the colic. So the phenomenon arose when a military parade is held with only one purpose, to show - hey, look, we are! We even know how to march! .. And we even have a technique, no matter whose, most importantly, is! And we also have, look here, what beautiful allies, and if they do something for us, they will take revenge ... even with nuclear weapons, do not you believe? .. BBC, look! .. Egegai! Don't bother with us! ..

Somehow like this!..

...

Sad?

Sadly! ..

But, oh well, as they say - what would the child not amused.

            It’s they who arrange parades out of fear.

            Some flee the country, away from the terrible Russia, those who have nowhere to flee - amuse themselves with parades

            The current "big brother" has to throw armored vehicles at them so that they do not get tired of fear and run away from the country, leaving it to the Russians.

            He has been to Riga several times, the last - in 2003.

            At the station I began to catch a taxi to get to the Old Town (there was a hotel)
            While he was catching, a policeman came up to me, asked where to go, he found out - he said wait a minute.

            A brand new Pajero arrives, I stand, I don’t understand anything. A policeman comes out, takes my bag, puts it in the trunk, invites me into the car.

            On the road, seeing my bewilderment, he begins to explain:
            - The government decided to get rid of Soviet cars and provided favorable loans to buy a new car.
            They pay very little, it’s scary to take bribes, so many policemen trade in cabs.

            At them entrance to the Old city was paid (I do not know how now) so he managed to climb in front of some sightseeing bus and was very pleased that he saved a few lats

            Drove, took out a bag and brought it to the door of the hotel. Full service.

            In general, it was cozy there, I really liked the Lido restaurants.
            It’s a pity that they are furious, well, let them understand.

            Interestingly, the police continue to be involved in the cab?

            If so, do they serve the US military?

              He lived in Riga for several years (last 2004) and had never heard of such a practice. Entry to the Old Town is not paid but limited. From the station, the Old Town is across the road with an underpass. Self-service Lido-dining room, but not a restaurant (although to whom it’s a mare, too ..) Something like that.
              They pay very little
              That's just cops zhalovatsa, as in Russia, especially nothing.

                Entrance was paid for private transport
                In fact, I was driving from the Russian Embassy, ​​where I got right from the station

                Lido - in addition to several small restaurants there is (there was, at least) a large restaurant, several floors, several halls, a group played music with me in the evening, on the other side of the Daugava from the Old Town.

                And there is always something to complain about, especially for those who want more, especially if you want to make excuses

                  A cop who does not take bribes is like a vegetarian wolf. (They take it even in England) And there were no credit programs to get rid of the Soviet automobile industry. Yes, and the need for this no-second-hand cars from the west are cheap. And hardly cops at work are engaged in private cabling, especially on new SUVs. Repeat, they just have enough. And the big Lido works on the same principle with the same prices.
                  for private transport
                  Do not weigh private transport allowed there.

                    Horseradish knows who they let him in, and who don’t, what he saw, he told

                    That is, the big Lido, with live music, working its own brewery until late - is this also a dining room?

                    Okay, let’s have a dining room, maybe it was written there, but the taxi driver said that he would take me to a good restaurant and didn’t deceive him, my wife and I liked it, it’s tasty, inexpensive and beer is not bad.

                    Then McDonald's and other fast foods are also all dining rooms, and not fast-food RESTAURANTS, as they are called, although even beer is not sold there

                    I don’t understand what follows from all this?
                    I wrote this story, or is it a shame for a former resident of Riga for his policemen?

                        But it's not that:
                        Big Lido - is it still a dining room in your opinion?

                        I wrote like this:
                        so he managed to crawl before with some sightseeing bus and was very pleased that I saved a few lats

                        The military parade in Latvia, and indeed the parades in the former Soviet Baltic republics, speaks only about one thing - the country is under US occupation, because NATO is an offensive structure of the Pentagon, which means it protects the interests of the USA (US Federal Reserve and transnational corporations). And at the same time, it is not the people of Latvia, as such, who are solving the issues of war and peace on Latvian soil, namely the Latvian collaborators in the government, the traitors of the national interests of the Latvians, who are conducting a compromising policy with the US State Department (US Federal Reserve). This is the main thing !!! And only one thing follows!
                        Washington (the Fed) needs a war with Russia - naturally, by someone else’s hands and not in the United States. Will the US ask Latvian citizens about whether to start a war from Latvian territory or not? Of course, no one will ask them. Therefore, the “independence” parade of Latvia is a demonstration of military power with a dual purpose: 1) not only a demonstration of the allies' power for supposedly protecting peaceful Latvians from Russia, but also 2) a threat-warning to the most native population of Latvia from the American occupiers themselves in the person of NATO to object to the official collaborationist course of the government of Latvia.
                        Therefore, the article is correct and the author “+” from me.
                        However, I want to add one important point.
                        The fact is that all the citizens of NATO countries and, in general, the "collective" West, who support their collaborationist governments in Europe, do not take into account one thing.
                        During the war on its territory, citizens - almost all (!) - one way or another, immediately or a little later lose all their property (not to mention the loss of health and even life). Those who went through the war warn that residents on the territory of hostilities just need to come to terms with the loss of their property in advance - to assume that everything they had is no longer theirs. This helps them not to get stuck near their values ​​and thereby save their life. This applies to housing (home, apartment), land, vehicles, household utensils, livestock, food supplies, jewelry and money. And even personal documents!
                        Those inhabitants in the West who intend to cash in on the NATO war with Russia, if they themselves survive, then most likely they will start living anew without anything - from a spoon, a mug, a cook. All this fits into the American DOCTRINE OF SHOCK by Milton Friedman about the so-called “Free” and “clean” market of capital, goods and labor with its monetarist model. The war helps transnational corporations to clear the territory of the local indigenous population without reimbursing the former residents of any losses and social assistance due to force majeure circumstances. Wayward arrogant Latvians will simply be evicted from their homes.
                        Moreover, this geopolitical pattern applies to everyone - all NATO countries.

In my opinion, this primarily concerns the Poles - accidentally survivors who did not fit in in any way with the plans of the "white people", one might say, failed by Hitler. Suffice it to recall with what fury Churchill opposed Comrade Stalin's demand to preserve Poland (to increase it) as a sovereign state.

      They gave a good comment. But the Latvian is cunning. They were taught that everything Soviet was bad, even under the USSR. I studied in Riga from 1977 to 1982. And these sentiments among the Latvian part of the population were strong even then. Emphasis was placed on a certain European coloration of Latvian culture. But for all this culture and for the development of Latvia in general, money went to the detriment of other republics of the USSR, including to the detriment of Russia. Who is to blame that the Latvians pissed away what was done under the USSR. They ditched VEF, the Riga Carriage Works, which produced electric trains for the entire USSR and some countries of the social camp, the Popov Radio Plant, "Avtoelektropribor", RAF ..... Many things. So they profiled themselves. Including education. In Latvia, no one restricted teaching in the Latvian language. There were schools with teaching in Russian, there were schools with teaching in Latvian. Well, and now ... not in vain, once the advanced part of the USSR - the Baltic States, they call Baltic Extinctions.

        Baltic Extinctions.


        Exaggeration is the enemy of objectivity. Objectivity, a condition for a correct decision. The Baltics are made up of three completely different republics. Estonia, in general, distances itself from the "friendship of the Baltic peoples", it is a poor, largely law-abiding country, where the police in Narva speak Russian without a hint of accent. Latvia, a country of "rural intelligentsia", differs from Estonia by a sharp drop in heights, between the rich and the poor, where the middle class are officials living on the top floor of poverty. The ruins of small Soviet-built towns with several municipal buildings renovated with European funds, sheds and trailers with satellite dishes, luxurious mahogany villas on the Riga seaside, this is a picture of Latvia. By the way, I have an interesting relationship with Lithuanians, who are called "brothers". Latvia in the thirties gave Lithuania access to the sea, giving up the city of Šventoji, and now, when tensions arise in trade and political relations with Lithuania, the question is raised half-heartedly about what would be good to turn back ... Lithuania, a country in fundamentally different from Estonia and very much from Latvia. First of all, this is a state of crooks in white collars, in terms of the number of state scams per capita, this country is far ahead of the rest. Even the president of the country, a protege of the largest thieves' community "Maxim". The only question is that it is impossible to steal everything. But all that is possible is sneaking. The same applies to the money of European funds. Therefore, the citizens of Lithuania most of all have real estate abroad and within the country. Well, those who are not able to steal live from hand to mouth.

        What unites these three countries? Submission to the American hegemon. Because of this, their policy is in many respects in solidarity, and the degree of submission is increasing from Estonia to Lithuania. The latter runs in front of the engine, from the fact that the stigma in the fluff, and that would keep stolen, compensate for attacks on Russia.

        Again, the outflow of the population is not fatal. From reflects only the ability to live well. To those who live well, those who wade through thorns to the stars leave. For bureaucratic states, whose GDP comprises from one third to half of the EU structural funds, this is not relevant. Industry there never rises, and the old Soviet was destroyed according to the plan of the West, as one of the factors of the destruction of the USSR and then Russia. This is an exclusion zone, invested in which will only be to maintain this function. The functions of alienation.

        Don't smack the game, what tourists and where? The tourist season in the Baltic starts at the beginning of summer. And those who do not tolerate the heat go there, regardless of political passions. Riga, why not, if you can speak Russian fluently and everyone understands you. There are only a few of those who go just like that. There are also many commercial firms opened by Russians, for example, the Bentley showroom. Russians for Russians. Freight traffic does not stop? So there are contracts, and Russian companies that carry out this "stream". It does not stop but weakens. Everywhere weaken, and Ust-Luga, why exactly he? Ust Luga is comparable in transportation with Severstal, one of the smallest, so compare with PKT or PLP. And in general it is stupid to compare the nose with the genitals, especially in the context of some kind of economic revenge. There will be Baltic terminals on the territory of Russia to operate efficiently and competitively, cargo will go there. They will not, the goods will go where it is cheaper and faster. Even if Latvians instead of grease will use goose droppings. Or cows, if you will.

        As for tourism, as such, I do not see the point of spending time on Riga-Jurmala. Dirty unsalted sea, grass grows on the beach, the Old Town for a few cafes and the forever closed Dome Tower ... pah. At least they gave something to eat, and so, nothing special. In short, if you are not a hopeless core who wants to wander around the sand with silt, and in the evening wrap himself in a sweater and check the box that they were at sea abroad, there is nothing to do in Riga. Even sensible girls washed off to Europe.

Rosenberg, the main lines of activity of the German occupation authorities were formulated for each of 7 planned new territorial entities. With regard to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, this document said: “The question should be whether to entrust these areas with a special task as the future territory of the German population, designed to assimilate the most racially suitable local elements. If such a goal is set, then these areas will require a completely special attitude within the framework of the general task. It will be necessary to ensure the outflow of significant sections of the intelligentsia, especially the Latvian, to the central Russian regions, then proceed to the settlement of the Baltic states by large masses of German peasants. One could probably use for this purpose a large contingent of colonists from among the Volga Germans, having screened out previously undesirable elements. But it is possible that the Danes, Norwegians, and Dutch will also be resettled to these areas, and after the victorious end of the war, the British, in order to attach this land, already completely Germanized, to the indigenous lands of Germany in one or two generations. In this case, apparently, it would be impossible to do without the displacement of significant in terms of the number of inferior groups of the population of Lithuania outside the Baltic states. ”

    such a moment as the main motivating factor, that is, the goal pursued by this, extremely strange procession, is completely impossible to comprehend
    But the goals of the parade and its form are well understood. A parade with the participation of NATO colleagues symbolizes Latvia’s independence from Russian influence and solidarity with the allied countries. Therefore, this procedure. Latvia sacrificed part of its sovereignty for the idea of ​​collective security and development in the EU-NATO system. The concentration of their Western allies on their territory near our borders violates parity and destroys the prevailing security system.And I really do not like it. angry It seems that the author, too. But he is the author in order to clothe the life-motive in a beautiful smart rhyme. Glory to the writers, in general. smile

    For the hunchbacked horse. You should not engage in the substitution of concepts. The very convenient word "does not stop". That is, if the transit was in 2015, and in 2016 it has already decreased by 40% (change of the owners of the Latvian Railways, and, accordingly, the flight with all the early agreements), then this "does not stop". The almost complete absence of our vessels at the repair facilities of Latvia - but "almost" means "does not stop" either. There are a lot of Russian tourists in Riga - for God's sake, don’t tell me - the outflow is more than 50% compared to 2014. Sale of real estate in Jurmala - until 2013, they were mainly bought. Even show business, which is really tolerant, has fled from Jurmala. Of the 4 events, only one remains - in principle, one can also say - "does not stop." I don't even want to mention the loss of the Russian market for the majority of Latvian goods. But since they supply a little, it means, according to you, that it does not stop either. Do not substitute concepts, learn to speak the truth. It's easier to live this way ...
    P.S. And embellishment is also not worth it - not the backyard, but the cesspool ...

      It’s you who read the news from the Internet, I’m like a sailor myself with constant calls to Ust-Luga about once a week and a half, and I can see with my own eyes brand new coal moorings capable of receiving three bulk carriers at once. By the way, in 10-12 years coal was transported from Riga to England, and by the ships of the IMF, although it would seem to load a piece of coal in Murmansk and take it to Europe, they didn’t let the Baltic states earn money.

    The Nazis sought to impose their understanding of history for the inhabitants of the Baltic states to form an image of an internal and external enemy and, accordingly, an image of a master and defender.
    The main idea - the Balts at all times protected their lands from aggressors from the East - the Slavs. And the Germans helped them in this. This absurd thesis for Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians, who for centuries suffered from the domination of the German barons, tried to justify the ideologue that the Germans were the guarantor of expansion from the East, leading to their enslavement. Local pro-Nazi ideologists from history formulated the storyline of “new historicism”: “The Germans not only liberated and continue to protect us from the spiritual influence of the Russians, but also introduced our ancestors to many crafts, as well as through the Hansa mediation they were closely connected with the economy and culture of Western Europe” . So the Nazis tried to replace the historical reality of the Germans' 700-year suppression of the Baltic peoples with the mythology about their 700-year stay in European civilization under the auspices of the Germans.

    Limitroph and independence are two mutually exclusive concepts. And generally speaking,
    the word "independence" for the Balts is something unrealizable, they have never been independent and never will be. It just so happened in this reality, how
    one Pole said, we just chose the side where it is more decent and satisfying. AND
    if people fight for independence, they are guided by other criteria.

Yesterday there were exercises in Tapa, so then when the Americans were washing themselves, they sat and waited for their clothes to be washed, when asked why, the machine was an automatic machine, the sergeant replied: "So that they don't hide theirs." These are the awesome "allies" of Estonia and the Baltic states. Abarms, which are in the Desert configuration Tapa, and are recognized as unsuitable for local "off-road" conditions.

    The parade was probably held for Russia-Belarus. For this little town is located 20-30 kilometers from the borders of these two countries with Latvia. And it was carried out precisely so that Anatoly Karakulov wrote about this in some kind of mossy bloschik. Further, the passage of 3,5 cars through the streets of the village is called a parade, and for example, the Washington Post replicates the news as an event of a regional scale, inspiring confidence that the Baltic countries will not abandon.

    Yes, and to annoy-provoke-prick Russia, after its emphatically tough actions against aircraft ships, it's nice. It seems like they say: "" Intercept "planes and other dishes, and in the meantime we will hold a parade 300 kilometers from Velikiye Luki, well, or Minsk ..." Is it a familiar name given today? So you can laugh endlessly, but the purpose of the action is not to show the ancient armored personnel carriers at all, but to indicate their presence at the very doors of Russia and the People in the Ministry of Defense have probably noticed this.

    Military parades known to mankind since ancient Persia and Rome. Initially they held to commemorate big victorieslike the Roman Triumphs. The parades were also of particular importance as the highest award: a symbol of honoring the heroes of generals who distinguished themselves on the battlefields and the greatest rulers. Of course, at a time of special demand for bread and circuses, parades were actively used to amuse citizens and raise a patriotic spirit, as well as for drill soldiers, as a means of maintaining them in an appropriate tone. Just fast enough the great benefits of military parades in intimidating conquered peoples and maintaining their proper tone, these same peoples, were recognized.

    From this dictum, it becomes clear to anyone who has at least a little brain who is the aggressor, a country holding a military parade on its own territory, or a country holding a parade of its troops in peacetime in other countries.

    There are two categories of Latvian citizens: government and Latvians. I will keep quiet about the government, for everything has already been said. And people ... Now ours are playing with Latvia. Hockey. World Championship. On the court - respect. There are national teams with whom we play "dice". If there is an opportunity to cut it down, we cut it. But the great confrontations between the USSR and Canada are far away, but ...
    Here they play ... I won’t tell the brothers ... friends, colleagues. No one leaves the joints, but there is no dirt. Respect, as they say in the Champions League. It is very striking.
    In the stands - young guys in T-shirts of the Latvian national team and ... garrison caps with red stars. Znarok and Vitolinsh - with St. George ribbons. And look at the stands at the matches of the Riga “Dynamo” in the KHL. Not a hint of the idiocy of the Ukrainian neighbors in the expression of emotions.
    We are pushed hard against our foreheads. Who with whom? I am sure that Daugavins and Redlikhs will NEVER pick up a rifle in order to shoot Datsyuk or Mozyakin. And vice versa. The great game kills the pathetic attempts of politicians. We have a great past. He cannot be killed by propaganda.
