America again, "sews" Russia terrorism?

April 5 2006

In the United States does not subside talk about the deadly dangers faced by American citizens residing outside the country. The threat of terrorism persists throughout and, moreover, despite all the measures of U.S. intelligence, occasionally intensified.

This week the U.S. State Department once again concerned about the situation in Russia, where, according to the agency, again there was a danger of terrorist attacks. In this regard, the State Department appealed to citizens wishing to visit Russia, or worse, in its territory, with an appropriate warning.

"At the moment there is no specific information indicating that an attack being planned against American institutions or citizens, but in general there is a possibility that Americans could become victims of indiscriminate terrorist attacks," - said in a statement.

On the one hand, this duty of the State Department - to encourage its citizens to be vigilant. However, if you follow the logic, then this must be at least some reason. Instead, the text of the official reports appear only meaningless clause. If we consider that America is living in a "state of siege", bordering on psychosis on the basis of high suspicion , since 2001, is another statement altogether would lose meaning if it does not belong to Russia. We have, according to Washington, not only with democracy (the last of it was mentioned last month in connection with the publication of "Strategies for U.S. Security"), but also with security tight. And not only domestic but also from the outside.

In this country, of course, need to behave more prudently. To this end, Washington urges U.S. citizens upon arrival in Russia to immediately register at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate-General and to avoid crowded places.

In this sense, the real message of the American Foreign Ministry, again not original. If you omit some places, it turns out that in 2004 and partly in the past said the same thing, and that rhetoric can be reduced to one: why go to such an insecure country?

Meanwhile in America under the auspices of the National Center for Combating Terrorism within the last year developed a new strategic plan designed to increase interaction between the various ministries to ensure safety. Subject to revision the relationship between the CIA , FBI, Pentagon and State Department, which along with the National Center on Terrorism will probably play the first role. The plan is part of a wider reform of government agencies dealing with terrorism.

Returning to the question about Russia's internal security, it is worth noting that usually eludes view of American officials. Out of sight, in particular, missed that last month in Russia was formed National Anti-Terrorism Committee and the revised Law on Combating Terrorism. Those two events definitely make it clear that the issue of security in the country given due attention . Also referred to official figures.According to the Interior Ministry, in 2005, was prevented about 450 terrorist attacks.
Nevertheless, America is trying hard to ignore the work of Russian special services. Year after year, Washington prolong their almost constant message about the threat of terrorist attacks, thereby discrediting Russia's image in the international arena as the country unstable and dangerous.

Last month, the Pentagon made another significant statement, which directly relates to the State Department warning. DOD has expressed its intention to place the U.S. embassies in about two dozen countries special services, whose tasks will include gathering information about terrorist threats.

This suggests that the scope of U.S. intelligence has largely expanded, and this is directly linked with the new strategic plan, which will be completed by July.
