Russia tries hassling Denmark over protection



News, Political News, Russia

Denmark might become a possible target for Russian nuclear attacks according to the ambassador of Russia in Denmark Mikhail Vanin, of which he informed the “Jyllands Posten” newspaper recently in an article that he wrote.

One does not need to be an expert on organized crime, however, to notice that the tone of the ambassador’s message is handled pretty much in an offer you can’t refuse style.

“I don’t believe that the citizens of Denmark are realizing,” Vanin wrote, “the full consequences (sic) of what will happen if their state would enter the American anti-missile defense system. What will happen is that the Danish ships are going to become targets for the Russian missiles.”

“Of course,” he then continues, “the decision is yours to make. I just want to remind you that you’re gonna lose both money and safety.” What the ambassador, however, failed to explain in his “warning letter” is how a defence system, not designed for any offensive actions, makes its owner automatically a target for Russian missiles. Yet this blatant mafia-style threat, made as if warning a business owner of what will happen to his store if he refuses paying for protection, might be one of the best arguments for Denmark to arm itself further: if Russia sees any possible opposition to it’s offences as a threat per se, so far as to threatening one of the world’s most peaceful nations, then what more reasons one would need to be reminded of the ancient Roman saying “if you want peace, prepare for war”?

Needless to say, the threats made by the ambassador have already been condemned by the major politicians of Denmark as unacceptable, and the government seems to have not be affected with this Russian bullying, setting a good example for how to behave with the aggressor and its threats.

    Their goes the schoolyard bully (Putin/Russia) once again showing their mentality: if your friends with the other then I’ll beat you up also.

    Because threatening to nuke a country (presumably with missiles) is going to be VERY CONVINCING in making people leave any kind of missile shield or defensive system.

    Great logic there.

    Putin’s word has been demonstrated to be worth nothing. The guarantees of neutrality are worthless. The only defense is to gather guns, gather missiles, gather missile defense, and gather allies to put between you and him.

    If worst comes to worst, at least then you know he can’t focus all his nukes on you alone. Or use them without getting some in return.

    Honestly, I can’t believe the Russians stupidity…they’re threatening everyone….do they really want WW3? Don’t they think that USA and europeans will come to their sense and start getting their defenses together? How do they dare go around threatening all the countries. It’s just insane…

    The Russians want to make this nuclear threat of Vanin into an, as we say in Sweden ‘normallägesbild’, or in English ‘Normal level picture’. Don’t know how else to translate it. Only then they could really use the nukes.

    I suppose that vanin is back to moscow by now.
