Unfortunately, pseudo-intellectuals of all stripes, both foreign and local, thanks to the systematic nature of the attacks, have developed a standard set of proposals. As in the film - children ice cream, Baba flowers. That is, first a wild bunch of condolences, and then proposals for the creation of all kinds of "committees" for the struggle, and so on. What can you say? Populism - this is not diarrhea, by itself after fasting will not work.
The same systematics includes the habit of completely ignoring any terrorist acts outside the West. In fact, any sacrifices in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan (for some time), and it must be confessed, even in our Fatherland, it is customary not to notice. The cult of the “white man” has become so comprehensive that it has gone far beyond race and color. Now this is the norm of the creepy attitude towards the West, no matter what nonsense from that side is carried. This is the norm of love for NATO and the EU. This passionate consumption in the frameworks permitted by monopolists, etc. etc.
Will this position change in the West or among our homegrown "experts"? In my humble opinion, no. But to ask the question - what to do and how to be - is worth it. It is to us, in order not to harbor illusions.
Police functions - a creepy-creepy relic ...
In Vladimir Solovyov's Sunday Night program, Nikolai Zlobin, the voice of the United States on our air, and part-time curly dry cleaning for state reputation, expressed a completely rational opinion that the United States never took over the police functions in Europe. No, no, do not be immediately outraged about Snowden and constant eavesdropping of his allies in the NATO bloc. After all, in fact, Washington did not promise the internal security of Europe, and intelligence is true, little things.
In essence, Zlobin is right. The United States never really cared about its “allies,” who in fact were always their vassals. And even more so the internal security of the latter is not engaged. Just the inertia of European thinking, to the yellow water in the pants of the frightened "ghost of communism", did not let her realize that her partner in Western civilization was not at all concerned about the fate of the old woman. At least, everything that concerns something more than the deployment of military bases and nuclear launch vehicles. US and that's enough.
Therefore, a peacefully dormant Europe continued to produce its “values” under the illusory cover of NATO headquarters in Brussels. In a consumptive delirium, the EU continued to write tolerant norms and laws, glancing through the burning Balkans, and now at the crumbling Ukraine and the bombings of Donbass. The infallibility, and therefore the inviolability, of Europe is so deep in the minds of politicians and the public that they are not able to respond to terrorist attacks with anything more than the construction of another people's memorial, public processions and poor creativity in the network.
The political, organizational and military degradation of the leaders of Europe has reached such proportions that the mere mention of real harsh measures makes them horrified. The strong-willed component of the character, which requires to take the bastard-terrorist by the collar and beat his head on the asphalt to full satisfaction, is perceived as a barbaric relic. Moreover, among Europeans, even the opinion begins to prevail that migrants (thus, having outraged women in Cologne and in dozens of other cities) need to pay for the services of ... prostitutes. Well, to get rid of inadequate animal urges, of course, at the expense of the state. Very clearly, Anatoly Shary told about this in his article “The state should pay women for them” on YouTube channel.
Therefore, it is not necessary to expect actions from this refined society, because a priori it’s extremely difficult for the leader of the level of Charles de Gaulle or Churchill to appear (no matter how much I despise the latter for his Russophobic positions - you have to admit that the person was tough, cunning and decisive).
Europe is an old woman by the road ... who would translate ...
Is it only in the impotence of leadership that the entire adversity in Europe is against terrorism? Of course not. However, that same tender love with Washington, which pushed Europe to at least compromise positions in response to any craziness of the United States, led to the creation of a very impressive foundation for all sorts of frostbitten comrades from around the world.
Didn’t “developed” Europe be honored to flirt with the USA about the division of unfortunate Yugoslavia, when it was necessary to sound the alarm, foreseeing the consequences? Has Kosovo, for which independence Democrats of all stripes have fought so much, have now become one of the outposts of radical Islamism? And if you remember Bosnia and Albania, in general, at least carry out the saints.
In fact, now in Europe there are several enclaves in which organized groups of terrorists can feel at home. And these are not just some separate buildings on the outskirts, under the floor of which, shaking with fear and finishing the last loaf, lie a pair of skinny bombers. These are whole countries where these same terrorists can freely have an evening promenade, medical care and annual rest from the main activity.
And all this was in line with the interests of the United States. Or does someone still believe that the collapse of Yugoslavia and, naturally, the complete fall of its influence on the surrounding countries, was in the interests of Jacques Chirac, or Schroeder, or Kohl?
But why go so far? Europe itself in fierce enthusiasm squealed about the “heroic insurgents” in Chechnya and took them “with a bang” as refugees, despite all the savage acts of terrorism that these refugees themselves committed in their homeland. With the same enthusiasm, Western politicians ignored any information from the Russian special services, both demanding the release of terrorists who had taken refuge abroad, and operational information about people associated with terrorist groups. In this case, the Boston incident is now just a byword.
However, this was not enough. Only five years have passed since the time, when groaning with steel, the pride of France, the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle arrived on the shores of long-suffering Libya (such a country was - now only on the map). At that time, NATO piled on Libya with more than a hundred combat vehicles (including strategic bombers). But the Charles de Gaulle with its deck aviation simply was obliged to attest to France’s allegiance to the “common interests”. Moreover, this curtsy cost the French an astronomical amount in a crisis. But who cares if you run in the same pack since the de Gaulle’s resignation. It was only later that crowds of migrants would stretch to the homeland of the croissant and the aforementioned aircraft carrier, crossing the Mediterranean Sea even on a pleasure catamaran, even on an air mattress. And at this moment in the heads of people who are in the subject, the words of the late Muammar Gaddafi sound like a refrain.
But even the first waves of refugees did not soothe the West. And not just refugees, but people of war who remembered the still democratic wings of “Rafale” in the sky over Libya. And bad luck, these guys somehow could not understand how they were lucky to be in the heart of civilization, tolerance and democracy.
Ukraine - Hopak on a minefield
In the crucible of the course of splitting countries into small dependent weak states, Ukraine was also pleased. Beautiful packaging of a European safe and rich family seduced immature Ukrainian minds. But the irony is that Ukraine, seized by the idea of European prosperity, thanks to the efforts of Europe itself, has turned into a kind of product that threatens this very security.
Thanks to the active pushing of the nationalist junta to the political Olympus of Ukraine, Europe has turned another country into a posh chernozem for terrorist groups.
Less than a year, as the West thoroughly took over Ukraine, and now on the fertile fields of Kherson the first swallows of radical Islamists have already settled. Thus, according to the former people's deputy from Kherson region, Aleksey Zhuravko, already in 2015, radical groups from Turkey began to appear on the territory of Kherson region, presumably from ISIS and the nationalist group Bozkurt (Gray Wolves). All these groups joined the puppet Majlis Dzhemilev and Chubarov. That is, to the very Majlis, which in Russia was recognized as an extremist organization, since the undermining of power lines and other large and small abominations of this cheerful company except terrorist acts are not called. However, at the same time with this decision, our Western partners, with a friendly chorus, cried about the need to cancel this decision. And that means (attention!) To legitimize and en masse wild packs that joined such a friendly organization.
“Freedom fighters” pose against the backdrop of a blown-up power line, the extreme right, apparently, posing for other “democratic” media
Given the meager cost of a passport in the territory of modern Ukraine and the semi-wild practice of its population to storm the border with neighboring Poland, we can confidently assume that in our eyes another enclave of terrorism and radical Islamism is forming in Mykolayiv and Kherson regions with the possibility of being transferred to Europe and Russia . Just imagine the possibility of turning Kherson and Nikolayev with their wonderful climate, with access to the sea and access to the expanses of the Dnieper (flowing through Ukraine, Russia and Belarus), into a base and a kind of rear of terrorist groups. But all the paranoid statements of Dzhemilev and others like him about the creation of "Tatar autonomy" (therefore, the pro-Turkish with their friendly relations with ISIL) speak for themselves.
At the same time, the very belonging of a terrorist to a particular group does not matter. The recruitment site itself and the ease of transfer are important. For the latter, European leaders made every effort, going through the “Arab spring” over the neglected countries of North Africa and the Middle East, with war and putsch over the Balkans and Ukraine.
Is the old woman dead or alive?
So did all European countries together with their leaders join the team of the yellow house? First, the spineless weakling is not crazy and not a fool, even more so if for half a century the main path to the rapidity of political success lay through every minute cultivation of the image of the enemy in the East. That very enemy in the form of a flock of drunken communist bears with balalaikas who want to take away the democracy, parmesan from Europe, and at the same time turn off the gas. Therefore, it is necessary to crush the flock, select the balalaikas and chant the "European level."
Secondly, over the years this position has become a stratagem. A stratagem into which big business, industry, the powers that be, and so on have built in, and therefore to turn around for the sake of the hundreds (at least hundreds of thousands) of the deceased inhabitants, cynically, financially and politically inappropriate. No, of course, the gentlemen of a particularly liberal mindset still sectarianly believe in the disinterested and humane impulses of the European establishment, which in turn, most likely, after the attacks looks at the position of the company's shares or rating.
Third, the emergence of an independent policy in the European space, like any failure in the system, will be regarded as a threat. And thanks to modern media, it is easy to turn any person into an enemy “values”. For example, the case of odious Strauss-Kahn, who, after showing a waywardness, quickly turned into a target for allegations of sexual harassment. Though the charges were dropped, he was already ordered to go to politics.
In search of "moderate"
This good old game in search of "his son of a bitch" (part of Roosevelt's quotation - all claims to the deceased) did not begin today or yesterday. The West has always been able to cleverly divide the murderers, sadists and rapists into "moderate" and "radical." In Nicaragua, the United States fostered Somoza, and in Chile Pinochet. And again, why so far away from our everyday life?
In 1993, the American newspaper The Independent featured a remarkable historical interview ... Osama bin Laden entitled - "A man who fought against the Soviet Union, sends his army on the road to peace." Yes, yes, this is the very Osama who will be appointed the No. 1 enemy of the Western world.
For the time being, Osama’s “freedom fighter” on The Independent
This approach has become a practice. And this is not an assumption, since it descended to the “atomic” level, the level of media and bohemian, which does not exist without the “word above”. In 2001, actress Lynn Redgrave, who led the controversial organization International Campaign for Peace and Civil Rights in Chechnya, pledged for the captured terrorist Akhmed Zakayev and settled him at home, opposing his extradition to Russia.
Insanely cute couple, you do not find?
So what to expect now? All the same practices of etching and manipulation, since the West has not refused the support of terrorists and, I am afraid, will never refuse. Until now, the United States and NATO countries continue to compile lists of "moderate" and still include such bloodsuckers and cannibals as Jaish al-Islam, Ahra Rasham and Harakat Nur ad-Din al-Zinki. By the way, the last recently without a conscience cut off the boy's head. In this case, the camera, quite calmly and efficiently, sawed off, so to speak, with knowledge.
What is the reaction of the West? They "insist on conducting an investigation," as reported by RIA (http://ria.ru/). It was during the investigation in the combat zone - the reader, you were not mistaken. It would be funny if it were not so sad.
And Baba Yaga is still against!
New UK Leader Theresa May
Perhaps, I exaggerate, and not everything is so bad? Perhaps the new faces of European politics will finally be able to see the real threat they themselves have created? No, comrades, no. As soon as she sat down on the throne of Britain with her sandy fillet to Teresa May, she instantly recited the magic mantra, relying for her post - “Russia is a threat to Britain”.
