War is not inevitable…

This somewhat joking statement, which summarized the official military and political doctrine of the former socialist countries in which the Soviet Union joined the military alliance known as the Warsaw Pact, basically told its NATO counterparts: the world is a corrupt capitalist The world is divided into a capitalist corrupt West and a socialist flowering East. The world is divided into a corrupt capitalist West and a blossoming socialist East. Otherwise, we will defend ourselves. Whether on the Rhine or elsewhere. And if your people decide to put an end to corrupt capitalism, we will selflessly go to their aid.

But then a former movie hero became president of the United States. Aware of his material, economic, and above all moral superiority, he simply armed the prosperous East under the leadership of the Soviet Union. The last Soviet leader had no choice but to attempt the impossible: communist reform, but what he could not do here in 1968, he could not do in the then Soviet Union in the late 1980s. The socialist camp collapsed like a house of cards, and the Eastern European countries took steps toward democracy. And so to military alliances with former rivals.
With all due respect to modern Russia and its military might, Russia today does not pose a major threat to the EU or NATO countries. The skirmishes in Crimea and eastern Ukraine are, unfortunately, not only considered games on their own turf by Russian political representatives, but also a sample of the Czech president\’s views that are not to be proud of. Sanctions against Russia are an obligatory expression of “solidarity with the Ukrainian people” and their impact on the Russian economy and politics will certainly be objectively assessed…
A far more serious warning for Europe was the war in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Centuries later, a conflict motivated by religion, among other things, flared up in Europe. And it was happening just outside its own borders. Half-hearted victories in Iraq after the invasion of Kuwait and further Western embarrassment over Middle Eastern oil fields, endless conflict in Afghanistan, and ambiguous attitudes toward the Libyan dictatorship have emboldened Islamic extremists, who have temporarily seized parts of Syria and Iraq and, most importantly as well as triggered a wave of mass migration.

Western countries were surprised by the sympathy of some of their own citizens for the reign of terror that the radicals imposed on the territories they seized. Islam is advancing and Europe cannot defend itself. It was prepared for the warlike clash of local political ideologies, but not for the unarmed masses coming from the south in search of a carefree life. Europe has long been engaged in a war of ideas for its own survival, but it is not at all united in this imaginary campaign, or rather in the trenches of defense. The United States, which has saved Europe twice before, has its hand up this time. No wonder. We must take care of ourselves
