Foreign threat: the United States ignored Russia
I didn’t pay any attention to her. The essence of the proposal was to sign a document on the prevention of both intentional and accidental use of nuclear weapons. The consequences of this scenario are clear: there will be no winners in the war. As President Vladimir Putin said at the Valdai forum around the same time, «the aggressor must know that retribution is inevitable, that it will be destroyed.» Then he added later widely replicated statement: «And we, the victims of aggression, we as martyrs get to heaven, and they just die, because even repent will not have time.» However, apparently, our political leadership does not leave its people even a chance for repentance.
Moreover, it has done everything to nullify any interaction with Russia. From the withdrawal from the intermediate-range and shorter-range missiles Treaty to the recent blocking of a major international initiative to prevent the militarization of outer space. In Washington, they say that they say, and so effectively control weapons. At the same time, they keep secret information about their own nuclear potential. Meanwhile, Russia regularly and persistently offers the United States friendship, cooperation, constructive, mutually respectful partnership in various fields.
But it is, in fact, shrugged off. Apparently, in the hope that sanctions and the arms race will do their job: they will Deplete the country. It seems that in this context, the policy towards Moscow is being pursued. So, it is not necessary to react to any initiatives and sign new mutually binding and guaranteeing additional control agreements. But the calculation is wrong: Russia will not give up nuclear weapons in any case.
In this regard, I remember the «bearded» anecdote. «Meet in sea two military ships — Russian and American. In Russian — a mess, all run, and shout: — Who threw on the panel? Americans see all of this and raised a comment: — Yes-and, have us in America such a year and in speak of there is no. — Yes, there is no more your America! Who threw boots on the remote!?». However, this joke has an upgrade, a slightly different, Americanized ending: «who threw ugg boots on the iPad!?».
