"La situation actuelle est "comparable à celle avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale: alors qu'il était évident que la véritable menace venait de l'Allemagne nazie, les pays occidentaux, y compris les Etats-Unis, ont tenté de présenter la Russie comme la principale menace pour la paix dans le monde" rapporte Sputnik international citant le colonel à la retraite le général Leonid Ivashov, président de l'Académie russe des affaires géopolitiques.

"L'ensemble de ces efforts sont une tentative des Etats-Unis et de leurs alliés de se montrer à eux-mêmes et au reste du monde qu'ils sont encore capables de faire quelque chose de sérieux à l'échelle mondiale. En réalité, toutes ces déclarations ne sont pas faites à partir d'un sentiment de force, mais d'un sentiment de faiblesse - et c'est pourquoi en Russie et en Chine, on ne craint pas cette tentative d'inculquer l'hystérie." conclut le colonel.

NATO's Cold War 2.0 Rhetoric Threatens to Give Aggressive Turkey Free Hand

La dernière initiative de l'OTAN menace de délier les mains du président turc
NATO's latest initiative – a buildup in Eastern Europe which officials have called "the most significant boost" to the alliance's military readiness "since the end of the Cold War," threatens to untie Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's hands, Russian experts warn.
 Jens Stoltenberg a annoncé que l'alliance renforcerait sa présence dans les mers Baltique, Noire et Méditerranée
Following a meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels on Wednesday, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the alliance would significantly strengthen its eastern flank, and increase its presence in the Baltic, Black and Mediterranean seas.
The buildup, the official added, would include increased air and naval patrols, increased exercises, and "more boots on the ground with more exercises and troops," together amounting to "the most significant boost to our collective defense since the end of the Cold War."
l'expansion de l'OTAN est tout à fait en ligne avec la stratégie de sécurité nationale de Washington, qui désigne la Russie comme le principal obstacle à la préservation d'un monde unipolaire dirigé par les Etats-Unis
Commenting on the new NATO buildup for Russian news agency RIA Novosti, Retired Col. Gen. Leonid Ivashov, the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Affairs, said that NATO's expansion is entirely in line with Washington's national security strategy, which names Russia as the primary obstacle to the preservation of a unipolar world led by the United States.
"We need to start from the national security strategy and military doctrine of the United States, adopted in 2015," Ivashov suggested. "There Washington set the vector for the actions of all of its satellites and allies, and declared that there would be no multipolar world. Banking on military power to consolidate the existing world order, [the strategy also] announced Russia to be the main enemy and a threat to the entire world."
 Les alliés de Washington au sein de l'Otan sont forcés d'agir en conformité avec cette startégie
It is in accordance with this strategy that Washington's NATO allies are forced to act, the military analyst suggested.
  l'OTAN a d'abord commencé de renforcer ses capacités militaires dans l'Arctique
"If we take a look at the geography of the NATO effort to strengthen its military capabilities, everything starts in the Arctic. As soon as it became clear that Russia was restoring its capabilities in the region, Washington began shouting that 'Moscow is trying to take over the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route' [which stretches through Russia's north]. Serious military preparations are now underway by the US, Canada and Norway."
Des tendances similaires peuvent être observés dans les Etats baltes et la Pologne
Similar trends, Col. Gen. Ivashov said, can be observed in the Baltic states and Poland, where new military installations and bases are being created, and in other countries, in which the US is actively stockpiling forces and weaponry, including nuclear weapons.
 Ajoutez à cela un soutien pour l'Ukraine et la Turquie, et nous obtenons une stratégie contre la Russie
"Add to this support for Ukraine and Turkey, and we get a strategy against Russia aimed at drawing our country into an armed confrontation – into a major war, including information warfare. Even those measures Russia is taking simply to ensure its own security are called aggression," the military analyst noted.
la Russie doit préparer une défense complète - celle qui fait appel à plus que la composante militaire
In this situation, Ivashov believes, Russia must prepare a comprehensive defense – one which appeals to more than just the military component.
Si Washington parvient à "traiter la question de la Russie", la Chine et l'Inde seront les suivants
"We need to step up our political and diplomatic activities, to use the mechanism of the UN Security Council, the OSCE and other regional organizations, and to search for allies in China and India; after all, if Washington manages to 'deal with' Russia, these powers will be next on the list," he concluded.

NATO's Buildup Could Untie Erdogan's Hands
Le renforcement de l'Otan en Europe de l'Est, en Méditerranée orientale et en Mer Noire pourrait servir de prétexte dangereux à l'agressivité turque
NATO's Eastern European buildup and the strengthening of the alliance's presence in the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea could serve as a dangerous stimulus for Turkish aggression, according to Retired Naval Captain First Rank Mikhail Nenashev.
Speaking to RIA Novosti, Nenashev warned that "if we are speaking of the Mediterranean and Black Sea region, [NATO's efforts] will encourage more brazenly aggressive behavior by the current Turkish leadership. It's enough to recall the former Georgian authorities' attack on Ossetia [in 2008], which was possible because the Americans had made clear, by their presence in the Black Sea, that they would understand and support this action."

In 2008, the now disgraced former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili launched an invasion of the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, killing Russian peacekeepers in the process and prompting a Russian response.
 Washington travaille à aggraver la situation, non seulement contre la Russie, mais aussi dans le Pacifique dans une confrontation avec la Chine sur des îles contestées
The naval expert recalled that Washington was working to escalate the situation not only against Russia, but in the Pacific as well, in the confrontation with China over disputed islands.
l'ensemble de ces efforts sont une tentative des Etats-Unis et de leurs alliés de se montrer à eux-mêmes et au reste du monde "qu'ils sont encore capables de faire quelque chose de sérieux à l'échelle mondiale."
Together, Nenashev suggested, these efforts are an attempt by the US and its allies to show to themselves and the rest of the world "that they are still capable of doing something serious on a global scale."
En réalité, "toutes ces déclarations ne sont pas faites à partir d'un sentiment de force, mais d'un sentiment de faiblesse - et c'est pourquoi en Russie et en Chine, on ne craint pas cette tentative d'inculquer l'hystérie."
In actuality, the expert said, "all of these statements are made not out of a sense of strength, but out of a sense of weakness – out of the understanding that in Russia and China, no one fears this attempt to instill hysteria."
"Malheureusement, Washington et ses satellites de l'OTAN sont engagés dans l'invention de menaces imaginaires au lieu d'aider la Russie à détruire la menace principale - l'expansion du terrorisme islamiste."
"Unfortunately," he added, "Washington and its satellites in NATO are engaged in the invention of imaginary threats, instead of helping Russia to destroy the main threat – the expansion of Islamist terrorism."
C'est "comparable à la situation avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, alors qu'il était évident que la véritable menace venait de l'Allemagne nazie, les pays occidentaux, y compris les Etats-Unis, ont tenté de présenter notre pays comme la principale menace pour la paix dans le monde."
This, Nenashev warns, is "comparable to the situation ahead of the Second World War, when it was obvious that the real threat came from Nazi Germany, but Western countries, including the US, attempted to present our country as the main threat to world peace."

For his part, the naval analyst stressed that an expansion of NATO's presence in the Black Sea would contradict the spirt of the Montreux Convention, even if the alliance were to formally keep within the limits provided for by the agreement by increasing the rotation of its forces in the region.

At the same time, he said, "with regard to the provision of additional ships to the Black Sea NATO countries (Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey) to bypass Montreux, this is unlikely, because the Balkan countries do not have the sufficient maritime specialists to service ships with sophisticated anti-missile systems, and Ankara's relationship with the alliance is too unstable, ranging from friendship to enmity."
