American scientist: Russia has proved that it is not able to carry out complex operations


The Russian special operation in Ukraine forced Sweden and Finland to join NATO, and also prompted the West to think about the insufficient capabilities of the Russian army. Phillips O'Brien, professor of strategic studies, thinks so.


According to the expert, Russia has shown that it is not an equal opponent for the United States and a number of countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

The Russian Federation is not able to conduct complex operations in the way that the British, French or Israelis can do, so in this position it is not even a second-level military power

O'Brien noted (Bloomberg quote).

Meanwhile, the head of the Russian defense department, Sergei Shoigu, during a meeting of defense ministers of the SCO countries, said that the United States and its satellites are trying to deplete Russia by providing financial and military assistance to Ukraine.

Shoigu believes that Europe and the United States have unleashed a sanctions and information confrontation with Moscow and are trying to put Russia in its place. Their goal is to “punish” the Russian Federation and clearly demonstrate the consequences to those countries that are conducting an independent foreign policies.

At the same time, continuing to support Kyiv, Joseph Biden announced on August 24 the allocation of $ 2,98 billion in military assistance to Ukraine.

    Criticism of enemies, oddly enough, is the most valuable material for us now, because. allows you to get rid of the "pink glasses" of our self-esteem. These "pink glasses" are our most dangerous quality in the current, critical situation. We need sobriety and adequacy in the perception of the situation, courage and ingenuity in actions

      The main thing for us now is to break the Americans in relation to Russia, to destroy their plans and self-confidence.
      So far, we obediently follow them, and only complain to our partners (for example, Shoigu in the SCO) about the injustice of this.

        The ability to fight is not to have a bunch of modern weapons, but to be able to impose, as you correctly noted "your" war, brazenly and harshly going all in all. Always hinting that we have nothing to lose but a shirt.

        "Hegemon" relies on the depletion of Russia ... Need to get ahead ??? The West involved a hooligan (against whom, Russia will not use nuclear weapons), counting on weakening us as an enemy, so that later it would attack with all its might. The talk that Russia is fighting "with its hand in the back" is not without meaning, because there is a weapon there against the main gang. Now there is an intensive study of methods of combating the modern weapons of the "Hegemon", without leading to a direct collision, therefore the actions of the allies in Ukraine are dragging out time for more thorough preparation. In addition, opposition in the economic sphere may make it cheaper for the West to abandon its plans than to continue its own exhaustion.

          What do you say about the "intensive study of methods"?
          Let the Russian scientist-economist, Doctor of Economics Valentin Katasonov do it:

          .... eight years ago, the Russian government adopted a bunch of import substitution programs with a deadline of 2020. The programs failed miserably. Much has been said and written about this. The most resonant was the statement made in May of this year by the head of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building Andrey Klishas: “The import substitution program has failed completely. There is nothing but bravura reports of branch departments.

          The bureaucrats who failed the programs of 2014 in their mass remain in their places. They have already become adept at falsifications, cutting budget money allocated for import substitution and are convinced that their sabotage activities will go unpunished.

          https://svpressa.ru/economy/article/343000/

          I think that our hopes that someone is working on something, unfortunately, are not based on reality.

    Russia has proven itself incapable of complex operations

    And what's wrong here, they were taken away from Kyiv, from Kharkov, there are no strategic encirclements, continuous squeezing in the forehead or shallow coverage ... The enemy is right, and there is nothing to blame on the mirror ... And it doesn’t matter how to win, the main thing is to win quickly and convincingly, with this we have strained - either we are playing liberators, but there are not enough flowers to meet, then we are cleaning up from the Nazis, also strained from reservists who are not very similar to the Nazis ... The locomotive seems to have gone off the route and went to a dead end, or is it top-secret the route of victory, long and bloody, to the delight of enemies ....

        Vladimir probably means, as I do, that the States will not let us resolve issues in Ukraine - we will be dragged into the war with NATO, and we will fight not only with Europe, but also with Japan in the Far East. By the time of contact with the States, little will remain of us. Today's Russia, unfortunately, is far from what the USSR was in 1941. We need to deal with forcing the retreat of the States themselves. They have the keys to all our problems

            The enemy has surrounded us on all sides and is preparing to drag us into a war of complete annihilation. The key to this problem is in the hands of the Americans.
            Without solving this problem today, we cannot build a strategy on any of our "own" issues. Many problems become solvable and get for this time after the Americans allow their vassals and slaves to "retreat" and the sanctions that are detrimental to them are lifted. The future that has reappeared returns meaning to the correction of the way of life and the social system, etc., etc., etc.

    Russia has proven itself incapable of complex operations

    It is difficult to win in any conflict, especially in the military, and even so intense. The fact that they pierced in a big way at the beginning is no longer discussed by anyone, but is taken for granted. What is happening now is yet to be assessed.
    In this regard, the question arises: how and who will evaluate?
    What criteria exist for this, besides the achievement of the goals announced to the whole world by our Leader of the Nation? conquered territories? Losses suffered? The cost of the war in rubles? Ephemeral indicators that can be drawn ...
    When this whole canoe is over, then:
    1. The authorities in the Kremlin will say that the goals of the NWO have been achieved;
    2. The generals in the bunker will shout that they have won;
    3. The Russian people will evaluate it as the Solovyov-Skabeev-Kiselyovs will tell him in the box. What they will say - see item No. 1.
    Imported professors of strategic and other studies can be wished health and luck in their forecasts and conclusions.
    Well, for us - expectations and patience, which will eventually work out.
    And each individual will evaluate this result in his own way.
    If by that time there is still someone to evaluate ...

    Meanwhile, the head of the Russian defense department, Sergei Shoigu, during a meeting of defense ministers of the SCO countries, said that the United States and its satellites are trying to deplete Russia by providing financial and military assistance to Ukraine.

    In order to foresee this evidence, it was not necessary to have seven spans in the forehead, in order not to be petrified before that, it was necessary to have exceptional narrow-mindedness ...

    Shoigu believes that Europe and the United States have unleashed a sanctions and information confrontation with Moscow and are trying to put Russia in its place. Their goal is to “punish” the Russian Federation and clearly demonstrate the consequences to those countries that pursue a foreign policy independent of the West.

    And what were they waiting for, like fireworks and carnivals from Ukrainians?

    Russian special operation in Ukraine forced Sweden and Finland to join NATO,...

    It’s called: they didn’t allow it, they pushed it away ...

    The Russian Federation is not able to conduct complex operations in the way that the British, French or Israelis can do, so in this position it is not even a second-level military power

    God bless them with the French, the British and the Jews ... But, starting with a large-scale campaign against Kyiv, the NWO shrunk to stupid trampling within the LPRDNR ...
    And what is wrong with the man? It’s not pleasant, of course, when someone else pokes at your “jambs”, which you yourself see, but oh, how you don’t want to admit ...

      The peasant is wrong in that it is impossible to take long-term fortifications with an army of 100 thousand people, when the defenders have the same number. And to win, you have to literally bombard them with shells. And they fall asleep! According to other smarter American experts, 60 shells are fired a day. (per day, Konstantin). And the United States and other Jews spent the same amount for one Iraqi company. It is necessary to explain what logistics means in this case. She is fantastic! Or "not Copenhagen". If not "Copenhagen", then sit your couch in silence!

    If you follow the professor’s logic, then the United States doesn’t know how to fight at all. These expert professors predicted a defeat for us in a week, a maximum of two, after the start of the NWO. The Pentagon and the alliance were planning guerrilla warfare, which meant a quick capture of the 404th and the spreading of Russian forces over the territory of a bad woman and a headache for years. And what do we really have? The Americans and NATO imposed a war in the old fashioned way. A war that the United States cannot win by default because they do not know how to fight in the "old fashioned way" and, in general, they never knew how. The United States did not win a single one on its own the war that was started, even with a deliberately weak enemy. And yes, about complex operations: My mentor claimed and history confirms his statement that the more complex the mechanism, the higher the probability of its breakdown. even easier.

    And today he is right. It's hard to admit it, but... If the Secretary of Defense says that we are "deliberately delaying the operation", it means that we are deliberately increasing the number of deaths among both the military and the civilian population.

    Criticism is always useful, even when it is not true. Draw the right conclusions. The statement that “Russia is not capable of conducting complex operations in the way that the British, French or Israelis can do, so in this position it is not even a second-level military power” is not new, and there is not much to compare with. Where did the Russian Federation fight? In Georgia? In Ukraine, the Northeast Military District, the Russian Federation protects the LDNR, this is not a war. There is a Civil War in Ukraine, Western Ukraine, led by Kyiv (NATO), is at war with Eastern Ukraine. You can compare the fighting during the Second World War, but then there was the USSR and the winner of the USSR, and everyone else joined in the victory. The economy and the NATO Army cannot be compared with the Russian Federation, the difference is more than 10 times in favor of NATO, plus satellites. What Phillips O'Brien is right about is "about the insufficiently large capabilities of the Russian army." How can you win if? The enemy is not marked. Target not marked. It is not indicated what the Russian Federation wants. There is no strategy. In the tactics of extremes, shyness. Politicians may at any moment be instructed to "make a friendly step." This is the limitation of the capabilities of the RF Armed Forces. What operations does the scientist mean, the special services?

    Is the American expert right or not? Six months have passed since the beginning of the SVO. Are the decision centers of the Ukronazis destroyed, or at least subjected to heavy shelling? No. Have the terrible bloody shellings in Donetsk been stopped? No. The shelling continues even after six months of the SVO. Is the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet cruiser "Moskva" involved in the NWO? No. sunk. was within range of anti-ship missiles. Have Nikolaev, Odessa and the adjacent territories been liberated, from which, taking into account long-range American missiles, the Crimean bridge and the infrastructure of Crimea are under threat? No. Do you feel a sharp increase in combat power, the pace of advancement of the Russian armed forces in the zone of the NMD? No. Are all-Russian mobilization reserves prepared, especially for the summer period, sufficient to break the back of a hundred thousand strong Ukronazi group and prepare for the expansion of hostilities, taking into account the entire NATO bloc? No. according to data from open sources, only separate volunteer battalions are being trained, in fact, to compensate for losses. Are there human resources and reserves left in the DPR and LPR for further replenishment of their units? No. Almost everything is under the gun. Did the Minister of Defense of Russia make a statement about accelerating the pace of the NWO? No. He made a statement on the reasons for the slowdown in the rate of NWO. Have the lines of supply of NATO weapons to Ukrainian formations been cut off? No. The deliveries don't stop. Is there a safety guarantee for the reactors at the Zaporozhye NPP? No. They could be fatally fired upon and blown up by the Ukronazis any day. Whose generals died more in six months of the NVO - ours or the Ukronazi ones? Our generals (according to officially confirmed data) four people died. How many Ukrainians I personally do not know. Is the American expert right that Russia is not capable of conducting complex operations? What does "complicated" mean? If "complex" means operations using all the means of a hybrid war, including: the creation on the territory of the NMD of a new political and military force from the Ukrainian population, capable of jointly liberating Ukraine from neo-fascism, if complex means the elimination of the leaders of neo-fascism, as well as the creation of partisan detachments and sabotage and subversive groups in the territory controlled by the Kyiv regime, in addition, finding weak areas of defense and strikes at the butt, and finally, actions as part of divisions and armies, and not squads, companies and battalions - then, yes, the American is right, such "complexity" our armed forces and those who lead them are not yet pulling, practically turned out to be incapable.

    Since 2010, the Russian army has been built to neutralize regional conflicts of low and medium intensity and to fight terrorists.
    It is no coincidence that the ground forces are even inferior in numbers to the Russian Guard.
    New weapons were purchased in microscopic doses, they were actually re-equipped with new modern complexes of the Strategic Missile Forces, Air Defense and the Iskander OTRK brigade.
    Mini ground forces, mini air force,
    mini navy....
    Nothing serious can be done with a mini-army on a territory of thousands of kilometers, and even with that cowardly approach:
    - we do not touch the transport infrastructure;
    - do not touch the energy;
    - we do not touch the government bodies ....
    The Americans give a correct, logical assessment of the RF Armed Forces, without the use of nuclear weapons, this is a second-order army to neutralize regional conflicts, and you will get what you fought for !!!
