It should finally reach the West: Russian tanks are not afraid of sanctions!


On February 21, 1972, almost 50 years ago, the 37th President of America Richard Nixon paid a visit to China. This was the first visit by a US President to the People's Republic of China. The result of the negotiations was the recognition by the States of Taiwan as the territory of the PRC and the promise of the withdrawal of American troops from there. This visit marked the beginning of diplomatic relations between the two countries after 22 years of hostility and contributed to the relaxation of tensions in Southeast Asia (at that time there was a war in Vietnam). A decisive role in this was played by Nixon's national security adviser, future US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. From 1973 to 1975, he held both of these positions. This was the first time in US history that one person held two of these positions at the same time.


Kissinger's reversal


It was Kissinger, who was the founder of the term "trilateral diplomacy", and organized the rapprochement of the United States with China, playing an important role in Nixon's negotiations with the Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Zhou Enlai. These negotiations culminated in the formation of a new anti-Soviet American-Chinese bloc. And although the Soviet Union existed for another 20 years after that, it actually became the beginning of its end. Kissinger played on the contradictions between the USSR and the PRC, Mao's ambitions and the Kremlin's shortsightedness, driving a wedge between them and dragging Beijing to his side. And although it was precisely during the years of his work in the Nixon administrations and Ford, who replaced him, that the peak of the relaxation of international tension, which led to the relaxation of tensions in US-Soviet relations, culminated in the signing in 1972 of the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT-I) and the Helsinki Agreements 1975, both of which he personally had a hand in, but the rapprochement of the United States with China is also on his conscience. And the fact that 20 years later the Union collapsed, but China did not, is a consequence of this rapprochement.

After 50 years, nothing has changed. Here is what one of the highest-ranking Pentagon officers, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Army, General Mark Milli, said recently at the Aspen Security Forum:

The world community is entering an era of heightened strategic instability; at the moment, three centers of power have formed in the system of international relations - Russia, China and the United States. We are entering a world with three poles when the United States, Russia and China are all great powers. As a result, this world will potentially be more unstable strategically than, say, in the last 40, 50, 60 or 70 years.

General Millie has not discovered any America. Henry Kissinger spoke about the existence of a tripolar world 50 years ago. Moreover, on the basis of its existence, he also built his doctrine of "three-way diplomacy", pulling one of these poles of power - Beijing to his side, having made that famous Kissinger's turn towards China. Now Biden wants to reverse Kissinger's U-turn, pulling Moscow over to his side. We'll see if he succeeds, but I doubt very much. The triangle is the most stable structure, and I do not think that Putin would prefer a stable equilibrium, when he can play on the interests of both vertices of the triangle, over an unstable equilibrium, having entered into an alliance with one of these vertices. Now he is playing with Beijing against Washington. But I do not exclude that the moment will come when priorities may change, and the Kremlin will put its eggs in another basket. Because you can't trust anyone! Neither the Chinese nor the Americans (and even more so the Turks!). They have deceived us more than once. It's in their blood. Nothing has changed since the time of Alexander III. Russia, like 150 years ago, has only two allies - its army and its navy.

Celebration of disobedience


Epigraph: "Tanks mud they are not afraid of sanctions! " (own observation)

And now five minutes of truth. Actually the part for which this conversation was started. Have you read the epigraph above? Any thoughts on this matter? But in vain! The meaning of the phrase is that our potential enemies, whom Sergei Lavrov out of politeness calls "partners", and his namesake Sergei Shoigu sees only in the panorama of the sight, are afraid of us to the point of hiccups. They are afraid from the very moment when on March 1, 2018, Putin played his famous cartoons in front of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, at which you all laughed together, believing the stories of Western propagandists that all this is bullshit, that Putin has nothing, that all this is Kremlin nonsense and fiction. Not fiction and nonsense! There is! And the saddest thing is that those who are supposed to in the West know this. Some of the "toys" have already entered the troops and took up combat duty ("Dagger" and "Vanguard"), the second part is undergoing the last bench tests before launching into the series ("Zircon", "Poseidon" and "Peresvet"), two more " products "(" Petrel "and" Sarmat ") at a low start. How “Caliber” works, the whole world was able to observe back in 2015, when, starting from air mattresses from the Caspian Sea, 26 “Calibers” flew 1,5 km and fell on the heads of unsuspecting barmaley who were nightmares of President Assad. Former US President Obama still wakes up in a cold sweat remembering this, but he was told that the Russian Federation does not have any cruise missiles, as well as there are no carriers capable of carrying them to American shores, but it turned out that there is!

That is why in the chorus of idiots who frighten Russia with sanctions from hell, there are no active military representatives of the US Defense Department - the notorious Pentagon. As there are no representatives of the CIA among them. The Knights of the Cloak and Dagger are well aware of our successes. The current owner of the White House is also aware of these successes. And it was at his request that CIA Director William Burns recently visited Moscow on a two-day visit, where he had a personal telephone conversation with the President of the Russian Federation. I hope you understand that the Russian president is not his level of communication. His level of communication is the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Patrushev and the director of the SVR Naryshkin. Take my word for it, if Burns had a private half-hour conversation with Putin over a secure communication channel, then he had something to say and something to offer him. And he acted not at all on behalf of the CIA, but on behalf and on behalf of Biden. It was the trump cards of the owner of the White House that he laid out on the table on the first day of his visit to Moscow, while talking with his colleagues in the shop. The information went upstairs, after which a direct conversation took place with the President of the Russian Federation. The CIA chief's voyage to the capital took place on November 2-3, and a month later the same US-Russian summit took place (part 2). Biden was in such a hurry that he set the date of the talks for a rainy day on the calendar for the whole of America - the day the United States entered World War II. What the presidents will talk about was known to both of them a month before the rendezvous. It is for this reason that Putin was so relaxed, and Biden could not hide his joy at the sight of his Russian counterpart.

Take my word for it, it was not Putin who persuaded Biden to provide him with written legal guarantees that NATO will not move eastward. These guarantees are worthless! And Putin, like no one else, knows this. You can ask the fugitive President of Ukraine Yanukovych for their price. On the evening of February 21, 2014, the ink had not yet dried out under the guarantees of the representatives of the European Union, who put their signatures on the Agreement on resolving the crisis in Ukraine (between Yanukovych and opposition leaders), as in the morning of February 22, these same signers (head of the French Foreign Ministry department and foreign ministers Germany and Poland) joyfully greeted the new masters of Kiev, who seized the presidential residence and de facto power in Ukraine at night, forcing Yanukovych to flee the country. The gentleman gives the floor, the gentleman takes him away. His word does what he wants to do with him! Who needs their cheap promises ?! Therefore, it was not Putin who persuaded Biden about the security guarantees of the Russian Federation, but Biden persuaded Putin about the security guarantees of the United States. And this is by no means my guess.

I give the floor to the American generals. The most effective. Back on November 12 this year, the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General of the Army Mark Milli, said that "the actions of the Russian military near the Ukrainian border do not indicate their intention to invade the country." And this is said by the most senior military officer in the US Armed Forces and the chief military adviser to the President of the United States, the US National Security Council and the Secretary of Defense. Four-star General Mark Millie sees no threat of invasion, then what is this talk about ?!

And the chatter that if, God forbid, the Russians want to invade Ukraine, and at the same time the Baltic States and Poland, then no one will stop them. From the word "absolutely". Physically, they will not be able to do this, with all their desire. They have checked it more than once, at all command and staff exercises the result is the same - the Russians are winning. And the Yankees can stick their sanctions on the doors of their own water closet, and scare their guests with them. Russians are up to the same place! They can do the same with the trade embargo and the ban on the supply of our hydrocarbons to Europe. Let Europe freeze, and we will supply our hydrocarbons to China, to whom will America make it worse? What else do they have? Oh yes, the Tsar-sanction is to disconnect from SWIFT. Not even funny! Disconnect! Within a week, your entire monetary system will be covered by such a perfect storm that nuclear bombing will seem like innocent fun to you. The dollar as the world's reserve currency will command a long life. Who dares to keep their money in it when they can be lost at the snap of two fingers? Have you dreamed about it? Go for it!

But what will you do when, simultaneously with the invasion of 100 armored groups of the Russian Federation into Ukraine, (where, according to the assurances of the same General Milli, it will take only 6 hours to capture Kiev), China simultaneously with the Russian Federation captures Taiwan, and Turkey, for example, under the guise of a nix that has arisen, he will try to present his territorial claims to Greece. Israel has also accumulated many territorial claims against its neighbors. But you never know there are still frozen conflicts on the planet, which the parties participating in them will be able to unfreeze when they see that the hegemon is a goal. That he has nothing against Kostya Saprykin. Such a domino effect will begin that it will not seem enough to anyone.

If the United States does not defend Taiwan, it will not even become the “beginning of the end”, but the “end of the end” for the American championship, not to mention their military and political leadership. It will be a fatal blow to the entire system of alliances that the United States oversees in the world.

- quotes Газета.ру Dmitry Suslov, Deputy Director of the Center for Comprehensive European and International Studies at the Higher School of Economics.

I fully share the opinion of the previous speaker. I can say the same about Ukraine. So Joe Biden is in a hurry to come to an agreement with Putin before the holiday of disobedience has begun. Whether he succeeds or not, we will see in the next two months.

      Two-thirds of Russian citizens are convinced that Russia is threatened by NATO, the United States and Ukraine. Where did such confidence come from in their heads? More than 70 percent of Russians do not have passports and have never been abroad, and their ideas about the world are drawn exclusively from television and other pro-Kremlin media, constantly reproducing the myth of the insidious West that hates Russia and envies our wealth.

      Not so long ago, in an interview with Kommersant, the head of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev, speaking about the external threat, said that the United States was interested in the complete destruction of Russia. In support of his claim, he said the following:

      Americans believe that we own them (natural resources) illegally and undeservedly because, in their opinion, we are not using them the way we should. You probably remember the statement of the former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright that Russia does not own either the Far East or Siberia.

      The fact is that Madeleine Albright never said such words. They are taken from an interview with "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" by Major General of the 9th Directorate of the KGB and the Federal Security Service Boris Ratnikov, which he gave in 2006. He said that in 1999, the Russian special services, with the help of supposedly existing mind-reading technologies, "connected to the subconscious" of US Secretary of State Albright:

      In Madame Albright's thoughts, we discovered a pathological hatred of the Slavs. She was also outraged by the fact that Russia possesses the world's largest reserves of minerals. In her opinion, in the future, Russian reserves should be managed not by one country, but by all of humanity under the supervision, of course, of the United States.

Kissinger played on the contradictions between the USSR and the PRC, the ambitions of Mao and the shortsightedness of the Kremlin, driving a wedge between them and dragging Beijing to its side.

    Well, this is unlikely. N. Khrushchev personally "drove a wedge" between Moscow and Beijing, overthrowing the personality cult of Stalin. Along the way with Beijing, the USSR quarreled with the SFRY, Albania and Romania.

    Nothing has changed since the time of Alexander III. Russia, like 150 years ago, has only two allies - its army and its navy.

    This is a tautology. From opus to opus, a hackneyed phrase is repeated that Alexander III allegedly either said or had in mind ... according to some testimonies ... of some historians who have an opinion. Again, 150 years ago, Alexander II the Peacemaker reigned.

    ... of RF groups to Ukraine ...

    Vukrainets Volkonsky is not even in the subject of what in Russian will be "to Ukraine".

    In general, the opus is very reminiscent of the clicking of jaws and the grin of one small animal cornered by superior enemy forces.
    And like 50-70 years ago - tanks, tanks, tanks ... which are not afraid of either dirt or sanctions.

      this phrase was said by Alexander III while still a crown prince, 147 years ago, having not yet ascended the throne of the Emperor and Autocrat of Russia. If you have any complaints about this phrase, then pay them to the Kremlin, on the monument to Alexander III in the Livadia Palace in Crimea, which Putin personally opened 4 years ago, it is this quote

      Vukrainets Volkonsky is not even in the subject of what in Russian will be "to Ukraine".

        Damansky is the transition of the conflict into a hot phase. And the discrepancies began back in 1956.

        The leaders of the Albanian and Chinese Communist Parties E. Hoxha and Zhou Enlai left the XX Congress ahead of schedule in protest on the day the report was read, without waiting for the closing ceremony.

        ... under Khrushchev The states did not manage to drag Beijing under themselves

        Your style is "very high"! Drag under you... Sounds like a song in general!

        This phrase (about the army and navy), Alexander allegedly spoke to his ministers, according to the Russian historian. Even if he said that it is not known for certain, this is not a reason to pull her by the ears to the place and out of place every time.

        Leave Uzbekistan to the Uzbeks. In Russian: "in Ukraine", in Ukrainian: "in Ukraine".

          Toko do not mine for the Russian language to tell! read the norms of the Russian language, when the preposition "in" is used, and when "on" - in the country, but on the territory. Everything else is politics!

          Concerning the phrase: Researcher A. L. Myasnikov notes the existence in historiography of the opinion that the formula “Russia has only two allies - its army and navy. All the others will betray her at the first opportunity "the future emperor Alexander III, who at that time was the heir to the throne, worked out as a result of the events of the Berlin Congress in 1878. Russia was forced to agree to a congress organized by Austria-Hungary and Great Britain to revise the conditions of the San Stefano Peace of 1878, being under the threat of war with these states and not receiving the support of Germany. The Berlin Treaty, adopted at the end of the congress, changed the terms of the San Stefano Peace Treaty, according to the historian V. A. Georgiev, to the detriment of the Russian Empire and the Slavic peoples of the Balkan Peninsula. “The events of the Berlin Congress, where Russia found itself in complete isolation, and the six great powers and Turkey attacked it as predators on the victim, Alexander Alexandrovich took to heart,” emphasizes Myasnikov in his book. He did not tell any ministers then, because during the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878 he commanded the Eastern (Ruschuk) detachment of the Danube Army, it included the 12th and 13th corps. According to his contemporaries, he proved himself worthy at the head of a detachment in the war. The war made a strong impression on the mind of the Tsarevich, which he himself admitted in a private conversation: war, and every ruler to whom God has entrusted the people must take all measures in order to avoid the horrors of war ...

            If you speak Khokhlyatskaya mov, then to the question WHERE? and where? to speak correctly - IN UKRAINE and IN UKRAINE. If you speak Russian, then you need to speak IN UKRAINE and IN UKRAINE. ___ In Ukraine, Ukrainian grammar was mixed with Russian colloquial speech, which is mostly spoken by Ukrainians ... and now they impose these rules on the Russians.

            About the phrase. Let's leave its origin outside the brackets. Let's say he said. Or maybe he didn't. Historical science does not give an exact answer.

    It should finally reach the West: Russian tanks are not afraid of sanctions!

    Bragging is off the charts, typical of the draft-age draft dodger. Boast when you go from the army, and do not go to the army.

    Kissinger played on the contradictions between the USSR and the PRC, Mao's ambitions and the Kremlin's shortsightedness, driving a wedge between them and dragging Beijing to his side.

    A wedge between the USSR and the PRC was driven by an illiterate corn-maker.

    But what will you do when, simultaneously with the invasion of 100 armored groups of the Russian Federation into Ukraine (where, according to the assurances of the same General Milli, it will take only 6 hours to capture Kiev), China simultaneously with the Russian Federation captures Taiwan,

    Pre-conscription dreams. 100 BTG, it is necessary to drive out all the Ground Forces from all districts, including the MP and the Airborne Forces, and even then, it will not be enough. The PRC did not enter into a military alliance with Russia. And it supports anti-Russian sanctions.

    They have checked it more than once, at all command and staff exercises the result is the same - the Russians are winning.

    In the strategic exercises Kavkaz-2020, all Azerbaijanis and Turks were also defeated. In a short period of time. In the former SAR, all Daesh and Turks, with oppositionists and Kurds, were defeated five times. laughing

                In Russia, in these positions, contractors at the Army forum, at inspections to rub glasses to the commander of the district, and his direct superiors. Since the fall of 2016, the Directive of the Ministry of Defense allows the recruitment of non-urgently served on a contract. The price of such contractors is low. The contract system is considered working when a contractor signs a second , third contracts. 95% of Russian contractors do not renew their first contracts. Maybe not so in your Ukrainian army.

    More than 75% of Russians consider a possible war between Russia and Ukraine, 66% blame NATO, the United States and Ukraine for this. Could the war that has penetrated from the TV into the head become a reality?

    60 years ago, in 1961, Mark Bernes sang for the first time a song to the poems of Yevtushenko "Do the Russians Want War?" There is no question mark at the end of the song title, as the negative answer has always been taken for granted. Of course not. And they never wanted to, repeating "if only there was no war." Only for some reason they fought all the time. On foreign lands, not on ours. In Afghanistan, Georgia, Ukraine, Syria ...

    The war has firmly settled in the minds of the Russians. Not in the form of a desire for war, in the form of its possibility and even inevitability. In the form of the conviction that if a war happens, it will be "just" and "liberating" for Russia, even if it is fought on foreign territory and will be an invasion for the whole world.

    We live in a probabilistic world. Today, the likelihood of war is negligible. But the Russian media, especially TV, in which war propaganda makes up the lion's share of the content, are diligently increasing this likelihood. The madmen happily set fire to the curtains, being in a room locked from the inside ...

                  and you open the Israel KVN team in 1991-95 - you will see it in the first lineup together with Jan Levinson, and who are you? no one! I have friends not prize-winners, but the champions of Ukraine in boxing, welterweight, Vovka Belov, for example, ms, not a Jewish sport, you were alone there, probably a Jew, if you’re not lying, which I don’t believe in yet

                  But what has it to do with lying?)) I have not written anywhere that I do not like Jews))) I respect them - they are great. They are different. For example, I had a neighbor in the 90s, an old Jew, he did not leave for Israel - he died in the suburbs. He fought from 1941 to 1945 in intelligence, had 2 orders of the red banner, 2 courage, 2 glory and so on. I still respect him

                  I wrote about lying not about you, but about our binduzhnik, you misunderstood
                  "For Courage" is not an order, but a medal, but the most honorable, the Order of Glory was awarded only to the rank and file, sergeant and petty officers, also a very honorable order, an analogue of the St. George's Cross, but the BKZ - the Red Combat Banner is already the second most important order of the USSR ( after the Order of Lenin), the officers were awarded. So most likely your neighbor had two Orders of the Red Star, and not the BKZ, which does not detract from his merits at all, I would just have had enough of a participant in the Second World War

        About the fact that boxing is not a Jewish sport, you wrote nonsense. Googling and you will see that there were a lot of Jews in this sport always and everywhere, in the USSR, by the way, too.

        It would be a mistake to imagine a typical Jew with a chessboard and a violin, Jews are different, like representatives of other nations.

    1. The beginning of the end of the USSR was the death of JV Stalin and the departure from the Leninist foundations of building Socialism, after which the USSR began to split in itself, and the economy severely slowed down. Then came a period of stagnation and decay, which turned into decay and ended with a coup in 1991.
    As it is written in the Bible, any state education is doomed to disintegration if it does not have strength in itself.
    And so it happened with the USSR and the merits in this of external forces, and even more so the merits of the Kissinger, Reagan and the like - No!

    2. Fear of the Russian Federation in the “West” No, because no matter how strong the Russian Federation is, we are sure of its inability to provide an adequate response, unlike the DPRK and the PRC. This confidence is based on the desire of the ruling class of the Russian Federation to integrate into the world capitalist system and to take part in the robbery of third state institutions. Therefore, the western “colleagues” of the ruling class of the Russian Federation are called Partners (!), And understanding their desire and dependence, they do whatever they want - they catch citizens in third state institutions, arrest the diplomatic real estate of the Russian Federation, finance the fifth column, prohibit them from flying under their own flag, impose sanctions, violate borders, demonstratively imitate a nuclear strike.

    3. The state is an instrument for promoting the interests of the ruling class, which is necessary both to protect one's own property and to seize someone else's, and no matter what the head of the United States or the Pentagon says, they are hired high-ranking executors of the will of the ruling class, which changes them like gloves.

    4. a). The United States officially recognizes Taiwan as part of China, the PRC.
    b). You can defend yourself in different ways - by supplying weapons, by instructors, and by means - military, diplomatic, economic.
    In general, there is room for maneuver, and this will not become any "beginning of the end" of the American championship, just as the hasty mass exodus of the defenders of democracy from Afghanistan did not become.

    5. Ukraine is not Taiwan, and the Russian Federation is not China.
    According to VTsIOM polls, only 5% of the population of Ukraine does not consider the Russian Federation an aggressor country.

    And all these bravura speeches and cries about the war is it against the background of the increase in the central bank rate and the prolongation of the freeze of pension savings? The author of the article works in such a way that pubic and cuddly hairs fly out of the screen. How much do you need to be shell-shocked to wish your country a war?

    Tanks are not afraid of sanctions, but they can get stuck in the mud. The people were united until Khrushchev opened his mouth. According to his statements, it turned out that the people went wrong since 1917 and the Germans were defeated incorrectly. And the people were divided into those who fought and those who took advantage of it.

    Our authorities, apart from tanks, have nothing to boast of. The economy is dwarfed, the standard of living is miserable, and we produce nothing. So I'm not very sure about tanks either. After all, we all write comments on Chinese computers, invented in the USA. And in the Union, I did not fly on Boeings. Ily, Tu, Yak-40 were their own. Well, where is all this, for example? And they hang noodles for me about tanks and greatness.

    Gentlemen, do you seriously believe that we are under the reliable protection of the army and navy? None of our officials would even think of pressing the red button in a moment of danger, they (including the residing) have children, wives, mistresses and, most importantly, money there.
    Only for this reason, our "authority" expresses concerns, gives symmetrical answers and is engaged in appeasement. Well, our resident cannot bang his heel on the pulpit and show Kuzka's mother.
