Globalization of counterrevolutionary tactics: Russia prepares to defeat any potential ‘central asian spring’

22.09.2011 § Leave a comment

Last week General Nikolai Makarov, head of the Russian army, told a newspaper that training to deal with social uprisings similar to those seen in North Africa and the Middle East and the increasing threat from militant Islamists would be the focus of the military exercises.

“According to him, the exercises would be especially aimed at defeating negative developments shown from the examples of Libya and Syria and the export of destabilisation after NATO leaves Afghanistan in 2014,” Russian newspaper Vedemosti reported on Sept 13.

What globalizes faster, revolutionary tactics or counterrevolutionary tactics? Does it matter? Maybe its just a confirmation, again of the thesis that the revolution will require the defection of the military from the states and the capitalists (like it seemed like was happening/almost happened in the spring…).
