The American media told how the United States destroyed the USSR


The United States began work on the collapse of the USSR from the very beginning of its formation, and as a result, were able to achieve its collapse.


The American journalist Ted Roll in his material for the publication Counter Punch listed what methods the US administration fought with the Soviet Union.

The intervention of Americans in the affairs of the USSR began in 1918 with an intervention in the north and the Far East, which the Soviet government managed to get rid of only in 1920.

During World War II, the United States remained “over the fray” for a long time, watching millions of Soviet citizens die.

According to Roll, the flight of a U-2 espionage plane under Powers, which was shot down in the airspace of the USSR in 1962, was an act of war from the United States.

During the presidency of Ronald Reagan, the US struggle against the USSR reached a new level and was marked by a number of projects, among which the collusion of the Americans with Saudi Arabia turned out to be the most effective.

At the suggestion of Washington, Riyadh increased oil and gas production, which led to a drop in world prices and adversely affected the economy THE USSR.

In conclusion, Roll notes that if Moscow had initiated the financial crisis of 2008-2009, Washington would have regarded this as a military act against the United States.

    As long as the Russian elite lives and keeps money in the West, Russia will be in jeopardy. For where your riches are, your heart is there. However, in the USSR such an elite was called “thieves.” From the point of view of historical Russia, this is not the elite.

      And just from a human point of view, too! How can the country's elite do everything in order to destroy their country ?! Yes, and the elite cannot be formed overnight, this happens generation after generation, from father to son knowledge and skills, social and moral responsibility, and much more that our "elite" does not have in the first generation!

    And why, then, did they provide assistance to the starving Volga region, sold entire factories during the time of industrialization, and provided assistance during the war in the form of Lend-Lease?

        Well, industrialization, although it still turns out that one hand does not know what the other is doing. But helping the starving and lending lease is clearly not about money.

        As far as I remember, Americans preferred dollars, well, these are trifles. And what, the American authorities did not understand that this strengthened the USSR?

      This is not the first time I've heard from you about Lend-Lease. Do you yourself know how much% this fruit occupied in the Soviet economy and when did you pay for it with mattresses? The only ones who really benefited from Lend-Lease were the States, which allowed it to become one of the leading powers in the world and participate in the post-war division of the world. Read at your leisure, maybe you won’t remember it so often!

        And what is so terrible you read in this article? Well-known facts here, nothing new. The only thing you can argue about the quality of equipment and the need for the supply of strategic bombers.
        It is a question of 4% of the army’s needs, but we must understand that they supplied materials and equipment in which the USSR was in short supply, for some items the supplies covered 100% of the needs. How to evaluate the supply of penicillin (not produced in the USSR), which saved the lives of our wounded? Or that every third flight of the Soviet aircraft was made with imported gasoline?
        The USSR actually paid nothing for these deliveries, and accordingly, the question is, why do you think that the USSR did not get the benefit from deliveries and what benefit did the USA receive if only a small share of the deliveries was paid, and then after 60 years?

          I come to the conclusion that you should not argue with you because of the futility of the debate. You act with a post as you please, grab a separate sentence and try to interpret it in your own way. There was no talk of horror in the link, there are real numbers, with which you can determine the volume of Lend-Lease - 4% of the total volume. Could they influence the outcome of the war? Not! Was it beneficial to the USSR? Of course, profitable, any help in difficult times is beneficial! Was it beneficial to the States? More than! In exchange, they received raw materials, were outside the conflict zone (Japan did not count, the States themselves were unattainable for them), the assistance provided allowed them to increase the number of jobs, but most importantly, to participate in the post-war division of the world, knowing in advance what it would be. To you a request: ignore my posts please, you are not interesting to me, as an opponent! hi

            Of course, ceteris paribus, Lend-Lease did not decide who would win that war. It would be longer, the Soviet Union would lose more of its citizens, but the result would be the same. But the article says that the United States was going to ruin the USSR and, logically, weakening the country of the Soviets should have been beneficial to Uncle Sem. Lend-lease does not fit with the idea of ​​the article.

            This is just demagogy.
            Return deliveries of raw materials did not cover 5% of Lend-Lease deliveries either.
            The United States was outside the conflict zone, regardless of Lend-Lease.
            The United States could build its own infrastructure and create the same jobs for the money.
            The United States did not participate in the post-war division of the world because of Lend-Lease.
            The result was clear already in the winter of 42-43, but deliveries continued until September 45.

    They never help themselves at a loss, the only country that emerged from the world war on an economic boom, the stock of which has sufficed to date.

      It is difficult to call the Lend-Lease program a profitable event, and even more so, it is difficult to find commercial motives in the activities of ARA.

    Here, the struggle and competition of two systems played a huge role - the embryonic, but declared by the Bolsheviks all over the world building of communism in the USSR, then the only one on our planet, and where everything should have belonged to the people of the USSR, to the peak of the foreign capitalism of the USA, England, Germany, etc. bourgeoisie, so that the USSR did not lag behind the bourgeois countries, and helped around the world to develop the communist movement. Remember Franco-Spain, Kuomintang China, Mongolia, Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, Nicaragua and many African countries, i.e. we also made “color revolutions” there, and all this was in contrast to the USA and England .... But since the “Kremlin elders”, and especially under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, all this stopped, we believed in the charms of “Western democracy”, relaxed , and the USSR lost our country, remaining within the borders of the Russian Federation, but the Yankees do not put up with it, and are not going to do it, and continue, and they will crumble and ruin what remains of the USSR - Russia. And we have complete followers of this case, a whole “5 column” of adherents of Gorbachev and Yeltsin, all kinds of gozmans, Khodorkovsky, Kasparov and others. Kasyanov, and if we do not give a harsh and biting response to all the provocations of the West, Russia may soon disappear from faces of the earth .... Come on, "Guarantor", lead the country out of hibernation, from the mud and cobwebs, the time has come to fend for ourselves.

      Okay, industrialization, although it's hard to understand logic if

      The United States began work on the collapse of the USSR from the very beginning of its formation.

      the sale of factories clearly strengthened the USSR, but Lend-Lease is not for money.

    With such explanations, anyone can be declared war.
    France has developed nuclear power and high-speed trains - it’s digging under the USA.
    It turns out that England is from the Eurozone - so that money is pulled from the United States ... Yes, do not buy the F-35!

    We concluded the Brest Peace - so that the United States does harm. We bought factories - and so that they were not in the USA ...
    Yeltsin traveled to USA - he wanted to drink their elite ...
    Cartoons about the torpedo nuclei have done - but they want the United States to explode in an arms race ...

    And most importantly - all this will be true .... Where are these friends of Yeltsin and Medvedev - bushes, Obama, and other tramp? - flew out of the presidency with terrible force ..

      They flew directly to the bags of money - they provided Iraqi oil to all their friends, for 16 years, at 10 billion a year.
      How's the zyz chairman Pound? 100 rubles a month at large, 200 rubles a month in prison. So the presidential salary in the White House, two presidential pensions - at home, in Texas or in Hawaii.

        This is true, it is everywhere. Not as locksmiths.
        For example: Sat the president of Gazprom - bang - and go to the presidency of the country.
        He was president of Germany - bang, already director of Rosneft ...

      They poorly understood what was happening, and who could have thought, or seen in a terrible dream, the voluntary collapse of a country that had emerged victorious in the Great Patriotic War ?! We summed up the ancestors, those who fought for the Union!
