Norwegian publicist: A united front has already formed against Russia

About the difficult zigzags of modern policy and the lessons of the past, the Norwegian writer Erling Riemehaug discusses in the pages of the newspaper Vårt Land.

In the autumn of 1962, we were chained to radios, while Soviet ships with nuclear missiles on board sailed towards Cuba, blockaded by the Americans. Whether the ships crossed the line and were sunk by the United States depended on the outcome of everything, including nuclear war. I still do not forget that fear, as well as that relief, when the Soviet ships turned back

- writes a Norwegian publicist.

The author argues that, seeing the seriousness of the military intentions of the United States towards Cuba, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev chose to "humbly submit" to American demands.

The Norwegian publicist transfers that situation to the current Ukrainian crisis, arguing that the Russian leader also faces a choice: withdraw troops or march against Kiev.

It is noteworthy that the author tries to almost ignore the fact that the current situation mirrors the Cuban Missile Crisis in that Russia's own national security is now under threat.

And, nevertheless, according to the writer from Scandinavia, it is the Russian leader who should give back - without any other options.

Speaking about the role of Norway, the author writes that Oslo has already decided on its position; and the soldiers of the Scandinavian kingdom will fight, for example, for Estonia, if necessary.

Perhaps Putin wanted to sow a split in NATO. But it seems that he has achieved the opposite: a common front against Russia has formed in the EU and NATO. In addition, countries such as Finland and Sweden are moving closer to NATO. But there are real divisions within the alliance. Germany would not want to contribute to a military escalation in Ukraine. She, as well as France, is against the prospect of a possible membership of Ukraine in NATO. France wants a more independent [from the US] armed forces of Europe itself, while the UK after Brexit is more oriented towards the United States. These disagreements will show themselves

says the Norwegian writer.

While acknowledging that the new anti-Russian sanctions will cause much more problems for the Europeans than for their overseas partners, Mr. Riemehaug admits that the US will also receive inconvenience. In particular, the turn to Asia will be postponed, and the "Iranian deal" without the Russian Federation is unlikely to take place.

In addition, the text notes that the embargo can lead not to the alienation of Russians from the current government, but, on the contrary, to support and unity.

    Norwegian publicist: A united front has already formed against Russia

    It's been like this 2 times already. First in 1812. Then in 1941. The second time, the Norwegians also took part on the side of Hitler against the USSR and Russia. And then they began to shout sharply in 1945 that they were not to blame - he (Hitler) himself came ...

      Then in 1941. For the second time, the Norwegians also participated on the side of Hitler against the USSR and Russia.

      In 1941 there was no Russia. There was the USSR.
      And then - you already deign to rave: the Norwegians have never fought either with the Russians, or with the Soviets, or with their ancestors.

      I am already convinced for the thousandth time what kind of dinosaurs live here:
      dense, cavemen with motsks killed by party political work, confusing Yumatov with Yumashev and claiming that in 1776 the United States attacked Canada lol

        Norway in World War II. Since the 9 April 1940 invasion, Norway has been under military occupation by German troops and German civil administration in cooperation with a pro-German puppet government.

        The National Unity party, which included government officials and representatives of the business community, collaborated with the Germans.

        Representatives of business circles, owners of enterprises actively cooperated with Germany (in particular, they carried out German orders, including orders from the German occupation administration and orders for the German army and military industry);

        as of April 1, 1941, 275 enterprises in Norway were fulfilling Wehrmacht orders with a total value of 59005 marks
        as of January 1, 1942, 263 enterprises in Norway were fulfilling Wehrmacht orders with a total value of 55 thousand marks
        A number of intellectuals, including journalists and publishers of printed publications published in Norway, participated in Nazi propaganda. The most prominent collaborator among the Norwegian intelligentsia is Knut Hamsun.

        During the occupation period, the Norwegian police continued to operate in Norway, whose employees carried out the orders of the German occupation administration (participated in the search and arrests of anti-fascists, members of the Resistance movement, Jews, etc.), although some of the police officers collaborated with anti-German forces.

        In June 1941, recruitment centers were opened in Norway and the recruitment of Norwegian volunteers began to be sent to the Eastern Front. On August 1, 1941, the SS volunteer legion “Norway” was created. In 1942, the Norwegian Legion was sent to the Leningrad Front.

          Norwegian volunteers? - So this does not mean at all that the country "Norway" fought against the country "USSR".

          In very recent years: volunteers from Russia fought in the Donbass on the side of the self-proclaimed republics. So no one here in Russia says that Russia fought against Ukraine.

          No, guys, to teach you the mind-reason is a waste of time.
          And finally, I will ask a certain "Baga-Dur Stanislas" not to litter my mail with various garbage.

            Listen, you smart guy! Can you remind everyone here who a certain Vidkun Abraham Lauritz Jonssøn Quisling was?

            So that you don’t overstrain your mosk (the size of a walnut):
            - from 1933 to 1945, this asshole was, no more, no less - the chairman of the fascistischen Nasjonal Samling and at the same time, from 1942 to 1945, he combined his activities well with the post of Chairman of the Norwegian government. For which he was shot in September 1945.

            PS: By the way, he was personally engaged in the recruitment of 45 thousand "volunteers".

    Expecting to find support in the West for our just demands, we must be aware that our confrontation with the West is a confrontation between two two cultures.
    The West now probably sees the long-awaited "moment of truth" in the historical confrontation between "East" and "West"

      it's not a matter of culture, the Russian Federation is an enemy for Europe, because euro roosters want to live in our open spaces ... but it’s not harmful to dream, but any aggression against the Russian Federation will cost the West the disappearance from the planet, the Red Army will no longer crawl on its belly to Berlin, but then feed and water the former rulers of the world. one salvo of cruise and hyper missiles (not even ICBMs) will destroy the entire West once and for all

    A united front is formed when, apart from the demagogy of threats, it sees no real strength. Only waving his fists, which everyone perceives as cowardice, which means you just need to squeeze. Apparently, the majority understands that for our government, the wealth it has accumulated is much more important than the country and its interests.

    It seems that a common front against Russia has formed all over the world, even the Chinese comrades do not intend to really support the Russian Federation - to enter into a military alliance, to unite efforts with the Russian Federation to combat the world domination of US banknotes, limiting themselves to non-binding declarative political support.
    The creation of a European army as an alternative to NATO will deprive the USA of a powerful tool of influence, increase the political independence of the EU, contribute to the development of the European military-industrial complex and the emergence of its secrets. All this will make the EU equal to the United States and one of the three world centers along with China, which will inevitably become a participant in the struggle for natural resources and the redivision of spheres of influence in the world.
    New anti-Russian sanctions include a ban on the use of banknotes of the United States and its allies - the euro, pound, yen, franc. Disconnection from the global payment system, arrest of gold reserves and assets in foreign banks. Under the threat of falling under the action of secondary sanctions, all state entities of the world, including the PRC, will shy away from the Russian Federation as from a leper.
    If the summit of "democracies" develops, then 110% of the state formations of the world will join its 90 participants. How then the issue of the economic blockade of the Russian Federation and the effectiveness of the UN will be resolved will disappear by itself, and with it the right of “Veto” of the Russian Federation.
    Not a single state entity in the world can withstand such a situation, and the Russian Federation is no exception. Reducing the income of natural and backbone monopolies will bleed the state budget, rising unemployment and a decline in living standards will cause spontaneous protests, which big capital and foreign enterprises operating in the Russian Federation will support materially and financially and direct them in the direction they need, and intra-class contradictions of large capitalists will put the Russian Federation on the brink of existence.

      don't be ridiculous, the West is only 1 billion people + -, there are another 6,7 billion on Earth, and they all hate the West (more precisely, the US Zionists and their puppets) and are ready to stand under the wing of the Russian Federation. to the arrest of the gold reserves, the Russian Federation will respond with the confiscation of all Russian assets of the West, and this is more than 200 billion, plus the Russian Federation will refuse to pay its debts in total 430 billion, the export of the West to the Russian Federation will be reset, and the export of Russian resources to the West will be reset to zero, and this will cause a stop and collapse of the entire debt economy of the West . The Russian Federation will live with resources and with Russian technologies, the West will die - trillions of candy wrappers cannot be eaten)

      bankrupt sanctions will only harm bankrupts, the West lives and dominates solely by printing trillions of candy wrappers, they built the military power of which 6,7 billion people threaten with these candy wrappers. so the Russian Federation can nullify all this power in 20 minutes. The Russian Federation will lead the struggle of the countries of the world with the West, the West itself is on the verge of default and the collapse of the debt pyramid, you just need to slightly push the West to the abyss - deprive it of the resources of countries with a population of 6,7 billion, and for this they need to enter into a defensive Union with the Russian Federation and place shock hyper nuclear systems RF
