Analyst in the USA: To understand the role of Russia in the Middle East, one needs to evaluate its history since the time of Peter I


American analyst Robert Rabeel presented material in which he said that the United States mistakenly perceived the map of the Middle East. According to Robert Rabil, this misreading has a number of negative consequences, including erroneous conclusions. An example is given of the thesis that was uttered in the United States for several years. This thesis sounds like "Assad must leave."


In the publication The National Interest, the author writes that from the very beginning of the Syrian armed conflict, American authorities predicted the "collapse of the regime" of Bashar al-Assad.

Rabil writes that both the series of recent media publications about the allegedly “tired of the Assad regime of Russia” and that “Moscow is curtailing the support of Damascus” leads to a misinterpretation of what is actually happening in the SAR.

Rabil for NI:

Such a reading of the political map of the Middle East and Russian politics in Syria is fraught with erroneous assumptions similar to those that predicted the collapse of the Syrian regime in the first months of the Syrian confrontation.

Rabil, who has authored publications like Damascus for Dummies and Why Assad Doesn’t Bother Obama (from 2011), says that American analytical and political circles are still making a mistake. The author notes the following: today in the USA they pay attention to what the media write about Assad’s high corruption and that no more than a third of the country's population would vote for him. Rabil says that even the State Department is based on these statements, shaping its Middle East policy.

From the article:

The State Department of Rights, arguing that Russia uses military power, proxies, and misinformation to expand its influence. However, it is completely wrong to limit Russian politics to the aforementioned dubious foreign policy instruments.

The analyst believes that Russian influence in the Middle East is made up of many factors, many of which are overlooked in the same State Department. According to Rabil, it would be worth appreciating history Russia "since the time of Peter the Great and through the prism of the victory of Russia over the Ottoman Empire and the signing of the Kuchuk-Karnayijsky peace treaty."

Rabil:

The role that disappeared after the collapse of the Soviet Union once again turned into a vengeful tone under Putin, combining elements of geopolitics, the ideological opposition of the great power of the American unipolar international system and religious pluralism based on the fight against radical Islamism and the support of religious minorities.

      in general, the Kuchukkarnadzhi world was concluded at the time of E2 and Peter has nothing to do with it. This slave / Rabil is bad with history, one word is pin_day.

        American analysts are shy as always. The USA has already got everyone in BV. After Russia “left” the region in the 90s, the USA had carte blanche, but “wise” American heads disposed of these circumstances in their own style - they destroyed Iraq, strengthened Iran, launched the Islamists, supported the “Arab spring”, spread chaos and war. Now American analysts have climbed into historical jungle, into the history of Russia. How cute.

        In the phrase after the sentence about Peter there is a union "and". And then there’s a proposal to defeat the Ottoman Empire, which is not related to Peter. Further, another union of "and", and only then the contract is mentioned.

        So Amer correctly built a series of events, the only observation-struggle with the Ottomans began before Peter, remember Battle of Molodi.

          actually, Peter blasted the war with Turkey, maybe you remember, therefore this slave said essentially so,

          Russia needs to be assessed by losses of the times of Peter and wins of the times of E2.

          it is either zaum or nonsense.

      But Kuchuk-Karnaydzhi peace treaty, it is only intermediate stage in the consistent policy of Catherine the Great, who became an episode on the way of Russia to the status of a great power, the most powerful country in the world at that time ...

        Russia waged wars with Turkey from the time of Ivan the Terrible over the OI and including the 20th century, so E2 devastated the Cossacks and Tartaria, does not mean at all that the Russian people won, the Russians became slaves to E2 and other Germans. And the “great” Romanovs lost ALL WARS 19 -20 century from Napoleon.

            It was like talking about the times of Catherine the 2nd, it seemed ... and then France tore 13 American colonies from Britain, and even after the mess of the revolution it was beaten off from a bunch of interventionists.
            Yes, and before our (along with the British and Prussians) entry into Paris, France cancerized all of Europe, including, unfortunately, us ... all the battles on the fields of Europe with the Antichrist were lost, except for Preisis Elau which was a draw, and Buonaparte in Moscow time visited.
            And even after that, France was among the great powers ... RI and BI were certainly cooler, but still cool ...

              It was about the fact that Russia during the reign became a great power. And contemporaries spoke of the Empress herself, that without her permission no gun in Europe would fire. And this was not a hyperbole, but a sober assessment of the potential and influence of Russia for that period, which lasted even after the death of Catherine, but somewhat faded into the short reign of her short-sighted son ...
              And her grandson, although weighed down by the burden of power, managed to confront the "united Europe" under the command of Napoleon ...

                You greatly exaggerate the role of Russia in world politics at that time .... we became on a par (and conditionally, because we were periphery and got involved on the side of one or another European force, and not a warrior alone in the field) with great powers, no more ... our hegemony in Europe was only under Nikolai Pavlovich and the USSR

      You are right .. we should begin to understand BV .. with Daniil Romanovich Galitsky !! Prince of Volyn in 1215–1229, 1231–1233 and 1235–1238, the Grand Duke of Kiev (1240), King of Russia from 1254, politician, diplomat and commander, son of Roman Mstislavich (from the senior branch of the Monomakhovichi) and Efrosinya-Anna.

        Daniil Galitsky "king of Russia" led only a fragment of Russia. His title (given by the pope Catholic) in Orthodox Russia was not quoted. (Now they also propose Ukraine to be called Rus and Zelensky can be called the President of All Russia ...). Even the children of Daniel were embarrassed to wear this title. Then, when this territory was transferred to Poland, they (Poles) became "Russian Kings" ... Daniil’s policy in B. Vostok has nothing to do with the policy of the Russian state!

    Well, the Jews tried to take Syria abruptly as Libya, for example, however, it turned out to be much more difficult to hang Assad - therefore, the Israeli military slows down with a coup in Iran; while Pars gas is still with Ayatollah; and even the Turkmen murgab is still in the hands of the Turkmen, although the jackdaw was included in the drawn igil cards

    They simply did not understand in Russia the "civilized component" of the so-called "Arab Spring"
    And the policy of Peter the Great and his followers consisted in the liberation of the Christian, Orthodox powers (southern Europe, Transcaucasia) from the Turkish yoke. To drive the Turkish "trotter" to the stall. Well and Persia, in the future.
    The Middle East is to the popes and their Crusades. And later to the British and French.

    To understand the role of Russia in the BV, it is necessary to evaluate and understand its imperial experience of forming its own state, not imperialistic, but imperial, not through subjugation and coercion, but through symbiosis, cooperation and sometimes patronage. No one in our country forbade living according to their own rules and praying to their gods; all were united by common interests. This approach is also used in Middle Eastern politics, it is not customary for us to put a gun to our heads and twist our arms, run and impose our values ​​as announced, we accept a partner in his originality. Sometimes this policy looks like a weak approach, but it is strategically more correct and designed for decades. Like it or not, our neighbors in Eurasia, take it off for us to live together, and do business, manage and get out of the ocean, this is not our method.

        Let's just say - even in 1983, Papa Assad refused to station Soviet troops in Syria on an ongoing basis, although without the USSR he would have lost much more than the Golan and Sheba's farm.
        As for the Americans, everything that does not concern the opportunity to make money is conducted at a very amateurish level, because engaged in this did not find themselves in something worthwhile, by American standards, business.

    Robert Rabil
    This American even justifies the title of analyst, because able to read and analyze historical facts transferring them to date. It correctly makes it clear that American policy on the BV using its slogans and desires, without taking into account reality and Russia, is unpromising. But apparently smart people in American foreign policy are not at odds, and their thoughts will not be heard.

    Russia uses military power, proxies, and misinformation to expand its influence.
    Doesn't the US use them? Well, a bunch of bobos. Well, how are your results?
    However, it is completely wrong to limit Russian politics to the aforementioned dubious foreign policy instruments.
    But Russia has a secret weapon, its history, which no one in the West knows. repeat
    According to Rabil, it would be worthwhile to evaluate the history of Russia "since the time of Peter the Great and through the prism of Russia's victory over the Ottoman Empire and the signing of the Kuchuk-Karnaydzhi peace treaty." The role that disappeared after the collapse of the Soviet Union once again turned into a vengeful tone under Putin,
    "Horses mixed in a bunch, people." An analysis of the history of Russia from Peter 1 to Putin - and no one else saw them. recourse repeatThe USA is gone. I agree, they need to be offered to dig from Ivan the Great.

    Analyst in the USA: To understand the role of Russia in the Middle East, one needs to evaluate its history since the time of Peter I

    Analysts damn .. negative Forgot that the USA, the first in the world recognized by the Russian Empire! And it was a serious recognition and a political step!
    Now we are suffering from their "gratitude", etc.
    Don’t do good, you won’t get evil .. How many times has Russia already come across this rake in its thousand-year history ..?

    empire is that state of Russia, which has established itself as a historical relay race, which was passed down to future generations by generations of ancestors not as an ethnographic exhibit, tradition or custom. This baton of the imperial state of the Russian state to the generation of ancestors was passed from generation to generation as the only possible model of the Russian state for centuries to exist. it
    and there is the experience of the people how to save Russia for an eternity going perspective beyond the horizon of history. And the current generation should be grateful to the generations of their ancestors, who are the foremost relay race
    they pointed out what awaits the heirs of the Empire beyond the horizon of the future history of Russia, if these future generations want to live in the Russian state and continue the history of Russia. Beyond the horizon of history, future generations are waiting only for the Imperial government of Russia. There were three Empires in Russia. Tsarist times of Ivan the Terrible, Imperial times of the Romanovs and the Red Empire of the USSR. But Putin is from the cohort of the Yeltsin and Sobchakov gang, which made every effort to bring about the Time of Troubles in Russia again. And since Putin has so far only said that the destruction of the USSR was a catastrophe, but does not take any efforts to rectify the consequences of this catastrophe, allows any Yeltsin centers to function in Russia, has not brought to account the destroyer Gorbachev, etc., it’s obvious that the Empire will be restored by the ruler of Russia
    after Putin. Although there is hope that Putin in the subconscious mind understands the need to restore the Empire within the borders of 1989. Therefore, Crimea reunited with Russia. Maybe Putin is cooking,
    so that it would be easier for the ruler after Putin to restore what destroyed the cohort of Yeltsinists and Sobchaks, to which Putin himself belonged. After all, Putin is so ardent to be baptized in the Church, but how
    It is known that the Imperial path and the Imperial state of the Russian state is definitely God, because the Church and the Orthodox Faith were one of those Atlanteans who on their shoulders held the statehood of the Russian Empire. So there is a reason to repent to Putin before God, and as the ruler of Russia, one must also atone for sins before Russia for all this Yeltsin and Sobchakov’s gang. Will the revived Empire have its special influence and special significance in Syria, and what status of Syria will be in relation to Russia, this should be decided by the rulers of the future Russian Empire, and not the Americans, whom none of the Syrian invited to Syria. And Russia, in order to save Syria, was invited by the Syrian state and the Syrian government. Can Syria, if today's Russian Federation is revived into the Russian Empire, be asked to be a part of this Empire to protect it from the destruction of its people, since once Georgia and Ukraine were asked for the same purpose from the Romanov Russian Empire? An answer to this question can only be given to the ruler of Russia who understands why and why the ancestors united their lands around the Moscow Principality and
    then it was not a big principality that was expanded to the large state of Tsarist Russia and further to the gigantic and powerful state of the Russian Empire.

    let’s hope that the meeting between Russia and Ukraine will generate synergy.

    Why should Russia feed the poor, scabbly lads mired in chronic debt? All this has already passed.

    in general, the Kuchukkarnadzhi world was concluded at the time of E2 and Peter has nothing to do with it. This slave / Rabil is bad with history, one word is pin_day.

    Maybe it has nothing to do with it, it’s just the period of what is happening, it’s called “... since the time of Peter the Great ...” (“since” - this, in Russian, is the beginning of the considered time section, which coincides with the beginning of the period of Peter’s reign ... .), in other words, everything that happened later is also included in the period under discussion.
    An American speaks Russian, better than many of our respondents :-)
