Project "ZZ". The racketeers club is outraged by the behavior of Russia

108
Former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul made a bold statement. According to him (uttered in fraternal Estonia), the United States should “curb” Russia, otherwise it forced NATO to “repel the threat”. In the international online edition of The Huffington Post, meanwhile, it was reported that this threat was “imaginary”, and NATO was called a racket of racketeers. There is a third opinion published by Newsweek magazine. They write that the agreement between NATO and Russia devalued the Russians.

The United States must "curb" Russia, former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul told the Postimees newspaper (issue in Estonian). Translated into Russian, encouraging the Estonian brothers statements appeared on the website "Tapes.ru".

Mr McFaul believes that Moscow’s actions “forced NATO to repel the threat from its [Moscow] side”.

The former ambassador is convinced that the expansion of the alliance to the east was legal: the West did not at all give promises not to accept new members into the ranks.

Further, McFaul traditionally accused Russia of “annexing” the Crimea, as well as undermining the economy of Ukraine.

According to him, the West should "take action" to counter such bad things. “America and Europe have taken important steps to help Ukraine,” said the ex-ambassador. “Putin hopes that democracy in Ukraine will collapse because of an economic collapse, and, for his part, is doing everything to make it happen as soon as possible.” The West must make every effort to prevent this from happening. ”

Riley Woggemen in "The Huffington Post" meanwhile, spoke in the opposite way. The very title of his article is very eloquent: "NATO Is a Racket". This is not about rocket, this is about racket.

Taxpayers who throw their money into the pockets of NATO must think that a “mighty defensive alliance” protects them from the tyranny and occupation of various unpleasant people with dark skin. The picture is rather vague. And what really happens?

The “red threat” is long gone. Over the past twenty years, NATO would do well to revise its doctrine and its goal in general. Maybe NATO could start exploring Kabbalah together with the singer Madonna, who, like the alliance, has nowhere to strive for.

But Americans need to sell their fighters. Sell ​​those countries that do not need them. If no countries buy fighters, things will be bad.

As early as 1999, one “think tank” predicted Russia's behavior during the expansion of NATO to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. When it turned out to the tycoons of the American military industrial complex, these countries were a dream for manufacturers weaponssmart comrades explained that the supply of arms to the new members of the alliance cannot be a leading priority, because without improving relations between Russia and NATO, increasing military capabilities in the new countries of the alliance will lead to a fire of war between Moscow and the West. And this is 1999 year, and the “think tank” is the Center for Worldwide Dialogue. “What could be more prophetic?” The author exclaims.

Recently, the Danish left-wing newspaper Politiken published an article on the topic of “the threat of Russian conquest of the world” —or more precisely, the way Washington’s propaganda portrays it. This is done to increase the volume of arms sales to the American "allies" in NATO in Central and Eastern Europe. According to high-ranking officials from the Pentagon, Russia may invade the Baltic States “literally at any minute.”

And last year, the Obama administration launched an ambitious campaign to impose American weapons on NATO member countries. The purchases are “sparing” and are designed for two years - so that the tightened belts of European countries do not die from new expenses.

What does all of this mean? The answer lies on the surface. NATO draws imaginary threats, creates images of enemies who are ready to devour “world stability”, and then forces the “allies” to buy weapons to the very eye of the eye. Wholesale and Retail.

The famous Major General Smedley Butler, who knew well the structure of the American military machine, explained a long time ago that war is a racket.

And it is difficult to argue today with the fact that NATO plays the main role in this “blood-soaked cheating”.

The author is convinced: the United States does not need to participate in the obsolete North Atlantic alliance. You should not spend on the armed forces as much as the following countries in the list of 25 combined. NATO is not needed at all: you cannot pay for its existence for the bombings of defenseless countries and the merchants of death. The countries that are now participating in NATO have absolutely no benefit from NATO. NATO is just a collection of racketeers.

There is another opinion published by the European edition of the journal. Newsweek. The author of the material is the notorious Igor Sutyagin, now a senior research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute.

27 May 1997, that is, nineteen years ago, Russia and NATO signed in Paris the Founding Act on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security. Kremlin diplomats continue to cite this document as a text containing NATO’s commitment not to permanently deploy troops in non-NATO countries.

It can easily be understood that the significance of the Founding Act for Russia lies in the established restriction on the possibility for NATO to freely deploy its forces east of the old border between East and West Germany. This helps the Kremlin to maintain a comparative military superiority in the areas adjacent to the countries of the former "eastern bloc" and the former Soviet Baltic republics, the analyst points out.

But is it true that Moscow appreciates this document? “Surprisingly, the answer is no,” the author believes. According to him, Moscow long ago "de facto annulled the document."

The above restriction on the deployment of NATO is established by Section IV of the law. Section IV is devoted almost exclusively to the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE Treaty). It was envisaged that the CFE Treaty will remain the cornerstone of European security in the foreseeable future. Three other important prerequisites for this law are listed in the preamble and section I “Principles”. It has been established that Russia and NATO do not regard each other as adversaries, renounce threats of force or the use of force against each other, as well as against any other state, respect the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of all states. All this was considered the basic principles of the goodwill shown by NATO and Russia.

But what is today? The analyst believes that none of the listed conditions are not observed today. Russia officially suspended the CFE Treaty on 29 on November 2007, when Russian President Vladimir Putin signed Law No. 276-FZ on the relevant issue (“Russia was officially suspended by the CFE Treaty on November 29, 2007 that matter ”). Later on, 276 March 10, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially announced that from the next day Russia will fully withdraw from the CFE Treaty. At that moment, the most important security factors on which the Founding Act was based “have ceased to exist”.

Next was the "Russian military operation against Georgia in August 2008 of the year." And after it - "the forced separation of 20% of Georgian territory", which came under "de facto under Russian control." That was the first action by which Russia expressed disregard for the principles of non-use of force against other states and respect for the territorial integrity of all states, Sutyagin points out.

Then there was the “Russian intervention” in the Crimea, followed by the “annexation” of the peninsula. There were also not only “irregular military actions”, but also “direct military intervention of the Russian troops in the east of Ukraine”. Here, the analyst saw “a lot of evidence of the same Russian ignoring of the principles underlying the Founding Act”.

The analyst believes that "the threat of the use of nuclear weapons against Denmark, Romania and Poland by Russian politicians and diplomats has become commonplace in Russian discourse."

Finally, the idea that NATO "is the main opponent of Russia has also spread so much on the Russian agenda that it is easier to list those who speak differently than to name all Russian politicians and newsmakers who openly declare NATO an enemy."

Sutyagin is “completely obvious” that the Kremlin “does not value” the Founding Act. So why should the alliance insist on preserving the Russia-NATO Founding Act?

* * *


The businessmen from the American military industrial complex, which had long ago turned NATO into an instrument of their profits, through the mouth of the former US ambassador to Russia Mr. McFaul expressed their desire to “curb” Russia. It, indomitable, threatens NATO, and therefore NATO is forced to "repel the threat." An independent expert by the name of Sutyagin accidentally acted as a co-rapporteur on the international issue, explaining that Russia had violated the principles and foundations of friendship with NATO as early as 2007, and then faithlessly attacked Georgia, otchkunt 20% of its territory in one fell swoop, and cut off Crimea from Ukraine. And who knows if tomorrow nuclear bombs will fall on defenseless Denmark, Romania and Poland.

There is, however, a different opinion.

NATO is an unhealthy cluster of visionaries who paint imaginary threats and create images of enemies, and then forcing the "allies" to buy weapons at the very end. American “racketeers” who do business in war are creating a “bloodstained scam” on a global scale.

Come figure it out here, who is right.

      "Mr. McFaul thinks" that it is time for a racketeer club called NATO to get out to the NATO borders of 1985 and return Russian lands in North America from%. I strongly support Mr. McFaul's desire to get out of his villa and breed something, preferably a Thistle ...

          Ok, but where is the bombing of Yugoslavia, the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, the destruction of Libya?
          The destruction of world security began in 1999 - with the fall of the first bombs into Yugoslavia. No need to bring down from a sick head to a healthy one.

            What is permitted to Jupiter is not allowed to the bull .... In the USA they like to compare themselves with the Roman Empire, and the whole philosophy of Pan-Americanism is based on this comparison. All cultural life, economics, law and defense. The empire is destroyed by internal contradictions and overstrain. Today it is multiculturalism and tolerance. The first erodes the Anglo-Saxon principle, the second weakens intelligence and will. So, Jupiter has a tail, from which something resembles a tantrum voiced by tantrums. Unfortunately, the process of fouling Jupiter with wool with horns and hooves can take a long time, two or three generations.

            Well, it’s obvious that nobody needs %% logic here. CFE Treaty and other similar documents are exclusively means for manipulation. Who needs your common sense? This is a game, and not only very large, but also one in which everyone cheats as soon as possible. In the case of Russia, in this situation it prefers to catch a crook by the hand and sometimes punish it with a candelabra (let's hope). But it comes out differently.
            Such stupid things as reason, morality and justice must be forgotten forever when it comes to big politics with the participation of NATO and the United States.

            I think you are wrong. The article has a good definition of what NATO is. NATO is a gang of gangs! In it, in general, ordinary bandits are not so comfortable as some people think from the outside. But why are they, bandits, all the same in it? There are two important reasons for this.
            Firstly, "a physicist can easily learn to plaster. But a nuclear reactor cannot be started in life with plaster!" That is, they, NATO members, are thugs in life. Not builders, not warriors, not scientists. They are vile thieves. And it is very difficult for them, indeed it is impossible to change.
            And the second one. Why are others so eager to go there, climb, shove, ask? Yes, because they are surely sure that the bandits will not rob themselves! Such, you know, a dull illusion of stupid people. Like, if you join the evil, evil will not touch you, but it will also share cookies. Here all these Poland and Romania are waiting for huge disappointment ...

        The scenario of actions of England, the United States and their henchmen to seize resources and territories has not changed for hundreds of years, now the turn has come down to us. I read a lot of laudatory comments from our brother, like "we all .." or "let them just try." You read and marvel at how quickly we forget our history. Yes, we almost always won, but what did we go through? Through enormous human losses, suffering and hunger with the cold, and all because they have always underestimated the enemy. Amurets, do you know how many times NATO outnumber us in the number of weapons and equipment? 4-5 times! And if we talk about the technology, then they have it basically new, and not like our slightly modernized Soviet-era technology in some places. Do you know why China, from a semi-feudal country, after 10 years began to occupy the 2nd place in the world in terms of economic development and production? Do you think China is our friend? No, China is a friend of England, and as soon as it starts here (in the center), 110 Chinese divisions standing on the border with us in the East will automatically work, and this is one and a half million military personnel armed to the teeth (we have only 950 thousand), which, by the way, like the Germans in In 1936 they studied in our academies and military schools, and the Chinese from the 90s to the present day. Moreover, they studied very scrupulously, I observed this with my own eyes at the Academy. Yuri Gagarin. They know our tactics and strategy by heart. I am writing this not only to you, but to all those who want to boast of our past victories by transferring them to the future.

At some point, China may not get into its war purely in order to manage to split the pie by the name of Russia, it will have to be hit hard and probably and most likely nuclear weapons against them and possibly even on its territory or other CIS countries.

              Recently I noticed a trend - many of my colleagues write comments, etc. at VO, they do not just do not exclude the possibility of using nuclear weapons, but they also long for this. This begs the question: do many understand that even the preventive (that is, obviously more destructive for the enemy) use of these weapons will lead the world to the brink of destruction, and the participating countries of this mess to total (guaranteed) destruction?

              I am not calling for general disarmament, or "pacifism without borders", no. There should be a threat of mutually assured destruction, but let’s still show less enthusiasm when there is a possibility of a full-scale nuclear conflict! Many children grow up here, at least remember them, warriors!

      What do we have tantrums of godless nations?

      The surface on the river breaks the ice drift -
      We have spring, so why be scared?

      Everything in Russia has been tested more than once:
      Fires, wars, horror of revolutions;
      We conquered Siberia and the Caucasus -
      Without fear of foreign obstruction.

      The wind of change blew again -
      We aired the house, even without it it is warmer;
      We are only afraid of internal cheating,
      But by the way, we will overcome it.

      The dogs are barking, the caravan is on.
      Russia is only for the benefit of testing:
      Rallying before the misfortunes of the people
      Putting trust in God.

      Dealers from the US military-industrial complex, who had long turned NATO into an instrument of their profit, announced the desire to “curb” Russia through the lips of the former US ambassador to Russia, Mr. McFaul. She, indomitable, threatens NATO, and therefore NATO is forced to "repel the threat."

      Indomitable Russia threatens NATO (including the USA) by the mere fact of its existence. This can be answered with the words of the last great of the Romanov dynasty - Emperor Alexander III:

      They are afraid of us because the Western media tell their viewers horror stories about Russia. This is done so that in the event of a conflict, Western citizens have no doubt that the Russian aggressors need to be killed. In the United States, the average citizen is not interested in what’s happening for by the state’s borders, and if they told him on TV that Russia was an evil empire, that’s the way it is. In Europe, signs of intelligence began to appear, but in the USA they also noticed this and decided to mix the European population with a visiting rabble from Arab and African countries, which life would not seem like honey
      Russia has a sparse population for such a vast territory and it annoys everyone. And small countries stuck together, they like the sixes are with those who were stronger than the Soviet Union. The Russian empire was also over all powers and some allies, Russia became sick and everyone turned away from it. If we since we live with our own government on different planets, then with residents of other countries even further.

        You're contradicting yourself, buddy. If "they are afraid of us," then how will they kill us? Out of fear or what? And further, if "signs of intelligence" began to appear in Europe, they would not have provided their territories for the deployment of NATO troops and conduct joint exercises. No one turned away from Russia, we ourselves turned them away after losing the NATO information war, it's like an election race, if one deputy only promises at all speeches, but does not support what was said with concrete deeds, then he will hardly be elected, and if the deputy helps orphanages, schools , people with disabilities will follow him even knowing that it was all just an election campaign. NATO was doing, it was accepting some people, it was visa-free entry, but what are we? And we reminded them of the past achievements made not even by the current leadership, but by the Soviet Union and actively called them to conscience, but they really needed help. Remember how the Serbs rejoiced kissing and giving flowers to our Russian paratroopers, then NATO put it in its pants, because our airborne battalion, along with the equipment, passed so that the vaunted NATO soldiers did not even notice them and people hoped that the war was over. Well, what is the result? We just BETRAYED them! And they turn away from traitors at best and accept the demands of the other side, hence Russophobia and hatred towards us. And with our government, we really live on different planets, here you are completely right.

    NATO is working out real-life scenarios of warfare with Russia using American tactical nuclear weapons. We do not do this. Therefore, it is absolutely clear who is the aggressor and who is not. In addition, it is NATO that is deploying missile defense systems near Russia. Moscow is forced to respond to this. The military infrastructure of NATO is approaching our borders, and not vice versa. We were already passing through this when Napoleon suddenly came, Hitler suddenly came, NATO suddenly came to our borders. Think: Enough!

    These idiots simply cannot understand that changing freedom for money is one thing, but changing life for money is another. When they begin to die in packs - then maybe they will think about it. But the Russians, by and large, do not care - to live or die, so the Westerners have no one chance but the betrayal of our authorities, and this is not for long.
    But in general and in general, the behavior of our rulers suggests that they are eagerly awaiting the eruption of the Yellow Stone or some other world-wide natural cataclysm. And so I think that from Nature you will soon find equilibrium more than them.

But does Western civilization have any values, except how to fill the dough, and it doesn’t matter how! Because Russia is big because there is annexation of new lands, not colonization.

    In my opinion, his head is His Majesty CRISIS. He not only touched us, the whole world lies beneath him. And the states feel his breath no worse than we do. And they do everything possible to at least reduce its costs. See for yourself: - There is an intensive processing of Europe for the conclusion of a transatlantic Treaty for the supply of goods and products to Europe, even those that do not comply with EU standards.
    - The constant involvement of countries in the NATO bloc makes it possible to increase the sale of their weapons to these countries.
    - The announcement of almost all countries as a zone of their interests gives them the opportunity to control the flow of goods and impose their conditions ... Well, etc. Many more can be listed. And here for them, this Russia begins to spoil everything. If we always sold weapons for 10-12 lard, then in one year we collected orders for 54 lard and orders continue to come. What is the lost profit for the states? Russia began to export food ... Again, a sickle in the intimate places of the states. And the export of various products began, albeit slowly, but to increase. Even the tractors went for export. But this was not even with the USSR.
    So they have to escalate the situation, scare the country with the Russian threat and drag their equipment under this business, try to sell gas, supply their oil and so on. Everything is connected together - only business is the main thing, and personal hatred only afterwards.

And who knows if tomorrow nuclear bombs will fall on defenseless Denmark, Romania and Poland. "...
      All the "arguments" of this grief analyst break down at once:
      1.
      Three other important prerequisites for this law are listed in the preamble and section I, Principles. It has been established that Russia and NATO do not see each other as adversaries, refuse threats of force or use of force against each other, as well as against any other state, respect the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of all states. All this was considered the basic principles of goodwill shown by NATO and Russia.
      , And then 1999 came and destroyed Yugoslavia, simultaneously cutting off a piece from Serbia.
      2.
      Next was the “Russian military operation against Georgia in August 2008.” And after it - “forced separation of 20% of Georgian territory”, which fell “de facto under Russian control”.
      De facto Ossetia and Abkhazia by that time were no longer the territory of Georgia for 15 years. And the Alans had their own statehood at the beginning of the new era, and why they are worse than the Kosovo Albanians is not clear.
      3.
      Then there was the “Russian intervention” in the Crimea, followed by the “annexation” of the peninsula. There were also not only “irregular military actions”, but also “direct military intervention of the Russian troops in the east of Ukraine”. Here, the analyst saw “a lot of evidence of the same Russian ignoring of the principles underlying the Founding Act”.
      And before that, the NATO countries "bent" the president of an "independent and sovereign" state and organized a coup.
      4.
      The analyst believes that "the threat of the use of nuclear weapons against Denmark, Romania and Poland by Russian politicians and diplomats has become commonplace in Russian discourse."
      It should be mentioned here that an American missile defense system will be deployed in these countries.

Everything in this world is interconnected .. but it would be better, of course, such a relationship was built in other areas.

    The fact that NATO is struggling is our fault .... It is not for nothing that Path's sidekick declares the resumption of "partnership and dialogues" with the West. Do you think he came up with it? Nooo ... This is done with high permission.
    And for the people, the bone is for sovereignty ... The question is: "What is all this?" The answer is simple - "no money!"
    But they are not in nature, and in the near future they are not expected. Moreover, if we increase and increase defense spending, it will become much more difficult and even more dangerous to steal. You can't drag off the mobilization economy to offshore companies, you can't put it in a "piggy bank" ... Cherevato ...
    So they began to gut about "partnership", I will be a bastard, even in St. Petersburg at the liberal gathering they will sing about it more than once. Suddenly the "partners" will have mercy, and then joy will come - "steal - I don't want to"!

Of course I want to believe that the rails will end in the Baltic states, but the inertia of this colossus is still alarming.

    Hey, restraints, do you want to get bridles ??? Today I read on the Internet a letter from RUSSIAN AMERICANS living in the US to the US leadership. In which THEY directly write that if NATO or the United States unleashes a war against RUSSIA, RUSSIA will simply DESTROY NATO and the United States in retaliation! And even if RUSSIA is destroyed as a result of the NATO and US strike, the RUSSIAN DEAD HAND will destroy the whole WORLD! And in conclusion THEY write: WE DO NOT WANT TO DIE !!!

    Russia officially suspended the CFE Treaty on November 29, 2007, when Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Law No. 276-FZ on that matter ”). Later, on March 29, 2007, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially announced that from the next day Russia would completely withdraw from the CFE Treaty. At that moment, the most important safety factors on which the Founding Act was based "ceased to exist."

    Igor Sutyagin is a very good analyst. It is unfortunate that he chose the path, in fact, a traitor to his homeland. Before his trip to places not so remote, including, he lectured to students of the Obninsk submarine training center, while in private conversations trying to reach information that constituted state and military secrets to use this information in reports to his real employers-intelligence services Great Britain and the USA.
    And about the CFE ... Mr. Sutyagin is disingenuous ....

    The Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) was signed on November 19, 1990 in Paris by plenipotentiaries of sixteen NATO member states (Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Canada, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal , USA, Turkey and France) and the six member states of the Warsaw Treaty Organization (ATS) (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, the USSR and Czechoslovakia) and entered into force on November 9, 1992.

    That's just the Warsaw Treaty shortly after the signing of this treaty did not. And the countries that signed this agreement on the part of the Warsaw Treaty, with the exception of Russia as the legal successors of the USSR, are currently members of NATO. And what's the point of this agreement?
    No one has been observing it for a long time, but Russia is periodically blamed for its failure.

    Who is right here? And whoever is at home is right! Let them choke on themselves and explain to the Mexicans about their innocence.

    McFaul liquidated himself (he didn’t justify the high daveriya punished to him) as the US ambassador to Russia. Not with his talents to destabilize Mother Russia. Now he squeals angrily, hoping that again Uncle Sam will add somewhere - in vain.
    - Wings of Russia -
    We are in this world - like strangers -
    That system is not that, then the step is not that ...
    Roadside Russia
    Or goes along the edge.

    Her narrow world is miraculous
    It seemed once - big
    With her head rebellious
    And an unknown soul!

    They wanted to take power and a lie,
    Yes broken off, "gentlemen"!
    Russia rushing off-road
    While not knowing where ...

    Finding - lost, looking again,
    I haven’t found it yet,
    Among the plains of cold prowls
    To find your wings ...

    She shouldn't wade her way
    Alien, beaten track
    Well, those wings might be
    Been idle for a long time ...

    Nothing new, all the same songs and desires of the Anglo-Saxons, the struggle with Russia. It interferes with their racket, very much interferes.
