Я действительно обеспокоился за своё будущее, и будущее семьи, прочитав некоторые послания - включая то, о котором я говорю выше. Считаю, что необходимо противодействовать. Как сказал ранее - противодействие может заключаться в том, что некоторая версия письма (наподобие того, что ниже) может распространяться в местных газетах, студенческих листках, известиях "домов престарелых," направлена избираемым политикам, кандидатам на выборные посты на Западе, итп.
Я, в свою очередь, намереваюсь именно это и делать. Текст могу изменить, как и вы, если захотите. Никаких копирайтов. Если у вас есть какие-то замечания/исправления/дополнения - пожалуйста, постите. Я с удовольствием добавлю/исправлю перед там, как посылать. Если есть предложения по тому - куда именно посылать, то буду им рад тоже.
The Honorable (Senator/Governor/Representative name),
As the United States’ presidential campaign is entering its nomination phase I, (name/status), wish to express my hope for your support of the issue that I deem one of the most central to this campaign.
The next US president (and Commander-in-Chief) will have a unique challenge and, in my opinion, an historic opportunity, to address the question of “Russian threat to the West." Let me elaborate. As a Russian-born individual, I am particularly sensitized to the current developments everywhere their present regime chooses to engage. The resultant picture is quite worrisome – even to a Westerner’s eye – and it can be confusing, too. What an average Westerner doesn’t often see, though, is even more troubling – which is why I would like to quote an excerpt from a recent post in one of Russia’s more popular blogs:
“So, this is what has already been done (perhaps, somewhat unwittingly, by Moscow, but in full compliance with orders from the European headquarters, which is using Russia for its geopolitical games against the US):
- The Russian Army had been mobilized. The military stands ready to launch full-scale operations, azimuthally. Dozens of military exercises had been held – mainly aimed at practicing rapid, large-scale troop deployment. Deployment – to where? Anywhere, really – from Tajikistan to Estonia; from Transnistria to Kuril Islands.
- The population is ready for a military draft. A strong feeling of having been treated unfairly and despicably by the outsiders had been instilled in the Russian populace – and the sole means of counteracting this brazen treatment is perceived to be via harsh resistance, up to and including the use of nuclear weapons…
- The initial arrival of the Russian troops in the Middle East – where they already started a military campaign – had begun, within the context of a conflict between the US and the EU.”
But what is one to make of this kind of lunacy? The Russians, according to Galkovsky (and many others), are being pushed to believe that they are at the center of a US-European “war,” the ultimate outcome of which very well might be a nuclear Armageddon. Many already believe this. As the US presidential campaign is heating up, what should the candidates’ stand be in response to this reality?
I, for one, do not believe the answer lies in ignoring the potential threat. As Senator Rubio brilliantly stated during one of the debates: “We cannot even have an economy if we are not safe” in response to the question regarding the perceived conflict between military spending and the economy. This is absolutely true, in my opinion, when applied to the potential threat described above. If we ignore those trends, they will only multiply. Their goal is to sap our resources, cripple our economic strength, and increase uncertainty. Their goal is to split the West along any of the lines they can find – economic, military, social, or cultural. We have been down this road before and we don’t need to tread it again.
Making deals with the current “Chekist” (i.e. yet another incarnation of the Soviet special services that took their start in 1917) regime seems like a bad idea also. It is well known that if a “Chekist” came to you with an offer to “fix” a sudden problem, in all likelihood they were the ones to make that problem happen in the first place.
The “problem of Russia” is not going away any time soon. Despite wide ridicule heaped upon Gov. Romney for suggesting that Russia was our top threat and priority back in 2012, his assertion seems to remain very relevant as we enter 2016. There is no other country or group on Earth which has the capacity and had leveled such (indirect) threats to use the most lethal weaponry against the West nowadays. This threat is sure to be used as a bargain chip; tool for extracting influence; negotiation instrument and an insidious mechanism aimed at splitting the West and consolidating domestic support at the same time.
Can we afford it? Can we do anything about it? Can we, at least, call this threat for what it is – something that Obama administration had refused to do all along?
I believe that our next president should address those issues in all seriousness that they deserve. As our representative, I hope you will do the same.
