It seems that this political corporate party was going only to unwind the cheap team.
The topic of conversations and statements of citizens of ministers in general, and Mr. Stoltenberg, in particular, did not cause surprise from the very beginning. Already at the place of conduct it was clear what we were talking about and unequivocally.
NATO was once again witnessed «enemy № 1», which was done quite ritually and not too meaningful.
However, the official goal was in the other.
At the summit was also announced and some political program — empty and declarative (not in vain I was voiced by Mr. Stoltenberg — one of the most meaningless Western bureaucrats-careerists).
He called her loudly: «Five elements of the new strategic concept of NATO.»
Elements are as follows: the first — «Protection of Values». As it turned out, NATO was created to defend democracy, freedom and rule of law. » Here in general without comment.
Second: strengthening military power. In addition to Russia and China, Stoleberg pointed to kiberataks, terrorism and proliferation of nuclear weapons. What new, fresh thoughts, however!
Third: «Strong Society». What exactly was meant Mr. Stoltenberg, he explained very vaguely.
The approximate essence of the explanation was reduced to the fact that they need gas from the Russian Federation, and they wish to get rare-earth metals from China, but at the same time the Russian Federation and China are still enemies, because.
If someone from you understand, with what is the «strong society» here, then you are too smart.
Fourth: «NATO should become a global alliance.» At the same time, there was no reception of new members, but a response to some «new global challenges» (for example, «aggressive actions in space», hypersonic combat blocks on intercontinental missiles and climate change). The latter is just a matter for a military unit.
Well, the fifth: «Strengthening the alliance as institutions.» What we are talking about, Mr. Stoltenberg did not specify at all.
Evaluate the level of novelty and depth of this manifesta, dear residents of the Evil Empire. The very «cosmic ships, furrowing big theater,» quite fit into it.
And so such a dull legal bleed is announced how almost the program.
Not quite. The purpose was still.
And it matches, it seems, in the internal cohesion of the structure with giving it at least some sense with the help of further winding the enemy’s image.
However, NATO, in fact, is an organization with large internal problems.
The same europe periodically rustles to make any separatic movements, such as the creation of the «European Armed Forces».
French President Macron periodically expresses NATO quite definitely. Here they are arranged periodically similar «Timbilding».
It will not be surprised that the current military hysteria around Ukraine may be associated with this, and the Summit has passed in Riga — this is, in fact, the corporate party, the only task of which is not too friendly team once again.
And the current Russian Federation — the enemy is quite safe. It does not react to the like so sharply as, for example, China.
Try, to imagine what it would be, gathering such a summit somewhere in Taiwan.
You can not? Not surprising. Because this can not be.
