United States dismissed the Russian Committee on the surface of the actual exercise, such as stuck in my throat

11 25, at the end of a two-month voyage, by the “Peter the Great Road” nuclear-powered missile cruiser “Admiral Qiaba years Kehai No.” composed of large anti-submarine and other ships of the Russian Northern Fleet squadron , arrived in Venezuela. Subsequently, the Russian Navy, the two countries in accordance with pre-planned, on December 1 to 3 in the Caribbean for joint military exercises. According to Navy officials said the committee, the Russian joint exercise designed to focus on the joint committee search and rescue, patrol, narcotics, counter-terrorism and counter-air operations and other technical and communication exchange. This is the end of the Cold War, the Russian military for the first time so close to “looming” U.S..
the first time after the Cold War the Russian fleet into the U.S. “backyard”, although exercise location sensitive, but very low-key setting courses
some time, Russia and the U.S. countries around the U.S. missile defense system in Eastern Europe and South Ossetia conflicts, relations remain tense. The highlight of this exercise is that this is the post-Soviet Russia’s first naval show of force in the United States coast. While both Russia and the prior statement the two countries exercise “is not directed against third countries, not aggressive, no political means,” but because of the sensitivity of exercise sites, coupled with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev personally, “Governor array” natural causes, including the West countries, including attention.
the Caribbean has been the U.S. economic and military control in Latin America “bridgehead” is also the U.S. global military deployment in the “weakness.” Although the U.S. 4th Fleet’s “home base” in the Caribbean, the U.S. fleet in the Caribbean have unimpeded, without any threat to opponents. However, if the Russian Navy in Venezuela for the supply base, often in the patrol or military exercises, the U.S. Navy in the Caribbean, the absolute advantage will be greatly weakened Latin America’s military deterrent force will also be greatly reduced.
Although the exercise location sensitive, but the two countries from the Russian military exercises at sea set the subjects of view, it is relatively low-key. Mainly air defense exercises, refueling, ship tracking, with helicopters and fighter jets together, and the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking and other conventional, low-intensity combat tasks and did not drill offshore so-called attack aircraft carrier battle groups, amphibious landing, landing, etc. These anti- rigid project.
statement in accordance with Venezuelan navy, through exercise, you can experience the Russian Navy to learn to use communication systems and weapons operational knowledge to enhance Venezuela’s naval defense capabilities. The Russian defense experts with the words, this is primarily a declaratory action to the Russian Navy. In other words, Russia is to tell the United States: “If you enter our territory, we will enter your territory.”
of course, is for the United States and Russia, no one could afford to bring the bilateral relationship breakdown serious consequences. Therefore, a trial of strength between the two countries at the same time must try to make the relationship remained stable.
“Peter the Great” nuclear-powered missile cruiser headed star, although no intention to “provoke” the United States, but to remind means strong
see from the participating troops, Russia dispatched a Northern Fleet’s flagship, “Peter the Great Road” heavy nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser, “Qiaba years Kehai Admiral” was to protect two large anti-submarine ships and a total of about 1,600 people. Party committee has sent three frigates, an amphibious transport ship, 4 patrol boats, four Coast Guard boats and naval aviation units and the Su-30MK2 fighter unit, the total number of about 700 people. 1-day exercise, the two sides to “Peter the Great Road,” the flagship, launched 28 km to 370 km range of the “common defense” coordination exercises.
fact, the Russian joint exercise program committee has long been the intention. But after the conflict in the Russian grid, this program has been greatly changed. Russia had plans to send only the four Pacific Fleet surface ships boat trip, and now adds the Northern Fleet’s flagship, including “Peter the Great Road”, including the heavyweight cruiser strategic forces, which meaning is not self-evident.
as the Northern Fleet’s flagship, a displacement of 2.6 million tons of “Peter the Great Road” with nuclear warheads, including 20 that can fit in the “Granite” cruise missiles, 12 sets of “reef” anti-aircraft missiles, 16 sets of “edge “Over the last several weapons, including missile defense. Allegedly, it carries all add up to 520 missiles as much. As a result of nuclear power plants, in theory, the ship has almost unlimited endurance, so the combat radius can reach any distance, no overseas base supplies in the case for offshore operations. “Peter the Great Road,” the Russian navy cruiser is currently the only in-service, the world’s remaining a nuclear-powered cruiser, the “superb martial arts”, not only is the “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier “patron saint” , also carrying the revitalization of the historic mission of the Russian Navy.
Russia “Qiaba years Kehai Admiral number” of large anti-submarine destroyer, is the only fearless Ⅱ-class destroyers built in the fruit. Russian Navy Commander Admiral 库罗耶托夫 the ship and “Peter the Great Road” heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser and called the 21st century, Russia’s main battle ships, their combat effectiveness is evident.
should be said that two ships are the essence of the Russian surface ship, its combat capability at sea is a world top level. Sent two ships cross the ocean for this voyage, and on the way to access more than two dozen countries, reaching the Caribbean Sea in Venezuela hold joint military exercise, Russia is in fact to remind the United States and around the world, although the recovery is still in the military stage, but is still a Russian Navy sea power can not be ignored.
on the surface of the U.S. military “dismissive”, in fact, like a fishbone stuck in the throat, full control
for Russia to engage in military exercises in their own backyard, the United States response to unusually calm. Pentagon officials said, is not concerned about the exercise, because the United States each year with a number of countries around the world hold similar exercises. Even the U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the Russian Navy’s ability doubts voyage, and joked, “while several Russian voyage should bring the tug.”
However, on the surface of American like pretending indifference sedation. Since the Russian fleet from the left on the surface, “dismissive” of the United States has a high degree of attention. NATO to send reconnaissance aircraft several times along the way “to accompany” fleet. With the recent anti-Americanism in Latin America tend to become more prominent, the United States pay more attention to the region. U.S. 4th Fleet renewal is easy on the “backyard” of the events to respond quickly.
the intensification of Russian-US military confrontation caused some media on the “new cold war” concerns. However, in the present case, the difference between the Russian naval forces with the United States is still very poor, difficult to pose a real threat. Russian joint military exercise may not be appointed as full arms race and the new “cold war” of the fuse, tension will not last long. In this sense, the United States, “showed little reaction” may exacerbate the situation in order to avoid tension. The Russian side has repeatedly said the exercise is an established program, not against whom.
Perhaps for that reason, Russia is a big return to the Latin American “than a real one”, which moves to make the U.S. feel as though stuck in my throat, but the two sides in Latin America in the future how to wrestle, it depends on relations well-being. If relations between Russia and Western countries can not be substantially improved, both in Latin America does not rule out the contest will be further warming.
Russia, the Commission, all came to the United States three “quiet”, the Western media have actually “enthusiasm”, waves
If Russia’s arms sales to Venezuela, also be regarded as ordinary partnership, then the joint military exercises the Russian Navy commissioned the Western media in the eyes of many is nothing short of a blatant challenge to the United States. Low-key with the three parties is different from the Western media focus on the exercise can be described as “enthusiastic”, it is inevitable that fueled suspicion. For Russia “openly under the eyes of Washington,” a series of moves, Agence France-Presse and other Western media that this is undoubtedly the United States a “provocation.”
British “Times” reported: In the backyard of the United States at the Russian naval exercise is deliberately appointed to the occasion of U.S. President Barack Obama became a challenge. The BBC said the appointment of a joint military exercise between Russia and the United States will lead to great concern and may lead to diametrically opposed to the United States and Russia Committee further increase tensions. The “Japanese Economic News” claimed that the rapid and Latin American countries close to Russia, to expand the site in the U.S. backyard.
In fact, bilateral or multilateral military exercises are held regularly on the international, mutual understanding and mutual trust among countries is an important way, nothing new. Some of the participating countries in the past often associated introduction and promotion, but because of the inherent specificity of military exercises, joint military exercises there is always people on a lingering mystery.
from a functional point of view, joint military exercises is that the country’s political stance, and enhance bilateral and multilateral mutual trust, cooperation, an important way. In international politics, the state not only through diplomatic channels open to promote political ideas, but also need to include other means, including military means, to show the political determination and policy.
In addition, joint military exercises is to strengthen military readiness, enhance the capacity of the joint military co-operation of the important measures. Foreign joint military operations, close coordination between the various armed services, coordinated action is very difficult. Exercise is the highest form of military training is an important means to improve the level of combat readiness. Through joint military exercises, help to identify and reduce the mismatch between the army and strengthen the level of combat readiness, enhance joint military operations in close coordination and collaboration capabilities.
Therefore, look at the problem rationally and responsibly analyze the problem, is to make the world “hot spot” an effective means of cooling. In this sense, abandon the Cold War mentality, not just a matter between countries. Currently, the trend towards a multipolar world is irreversible. In this process, the balance of power will change, but more important is the balance of power changes in this evolving new international code of conduct, and with the new guidelines dealing with international affairs. As an emerging multi-polar world in a very, Russia is bound to continue to strengthen the influence of a variety of ways, and with the new guidelines to defend the dignity of their own power.
