Shah - a threat to the king of the enemy. To events in Syria

Shah - a threat to the king of the enemy. To events in SyriaLooking through newsHe drew attention to some facts that were not visible in the general flow, the conclusions from which seem interesting.

The long and not always successful confrontation between the Foreign Ministry of Russia and the State Department somehow resembled tango. With the change of "leader" (paradox), where Russia, losing the rhythm, used (successfully) twists to return positions. For a long time I could not understand the "game" of diplomats, that is, the C-300 is something else, for now, no longer. Then we take the view that the blame on blood on both sides, then (true) gangsters-cannibals are the only evil.

The Syrian side worked very synchronously. Well done! Bashar took the right rhythm, the proposals of (only political) "opposition" much moreоmore than their Western masters could have imagined, before the re-orientation of all Arabs to the old Israeli bugaboo. What is called, "the boat swam almost without swaying." All the attention at certain moments, when it seemed that the scenario of Bosnia, Kosovo, or even Libya was about to happen, was the course of Russia, which either confused the “partners”, then made them think that before the 80's scenario a little bit. I will not point to the obvious "hooks" spiked by Lavrov on the way of our "partners", but at certain times he was not able to go to the village, not to the city, he smiled that your Dzhokonda (it would be necessary to work with botox).

Well, finally it happened. All cards are open, and lie on the table, the player is at a loss by his loss, and the game starts again. Thanks to the party that the Putin-Lavrov-Assad troika won for Syria, the large (if not the largest) base in Qusayr was destroyed. In Aleppo, the mopping up of thugs is proceeding to zero. Shabiha is gaining momentum more and more. Of course, the participation of Hezbollah (the party of Allah) slightly spoils the picture. But at least Bashar faithfully refused Russian volunteers - there is less reason to accuse of using mercenaries. But be that as it may, the first party was left for Syria and Russia. And this is a kind of signal to our real partners who are worth dealing with.

      The long and not always successful confrontation between the Russian Foreign Ministry and the State Department was somehow reminiscent of tango.
      It reminds least of all tango.
      Rather, the West "dances" modern dance, while the Foreign Ministry opposes classical ballet.
      And the Syrian "opera" is approaching its conclusion.

        But indeed, we can say that Russia's success in politics and economics, observed in recent years, rests on only a few specific individuals. And it was enough for Putin to go (albeit not far, to the premieres), so that the world would receive Libya.

        Even Iran, it seems, is able to ensure the continuity of the course, and Putin has such a short bench that it can not but worry. Of course, by the standards of politicians, Putin is still young (give him the god of health and long years, of course), but the fact that there are not at least any equivalent personalities on the horizon is it impossible to take seriously any Udaltsovs with Navalny? This is not even the opposition, it is the usual corruptive skins - it makes you think now. After Putin, I would not want to get another Gorbachev-Medvedev.

        I hope Putin’s team is working on this too.

            Thinking just like that? Then search the net how recently (Putin's) time, since 2005, the price of Urals oil has been formed, how is a certain Gunvor company involved here, and why is Mc-Grow Hills offended by it? Why are British stock speculators now inventing new "rules" for trading in oil, a spot system?

            If Russia hadn’t cleverly opposed, the West through Khodorkovsky would have arranged for us to give oil for nothing, we should have. So the favorable environment for Russian oil and gas is also the merit of the Putin administration.

      so she in 2011 predicted a war using chemical and nuclear weapons! So Mother Earth went the other way! Time and events changed, further predictions by Wanga were already for that way, not for that. But this is for those who believe in the words of Wang.
      You can go to the fortuneteller and guess what will happen, or you can go and guess what will happen if you do so, and what if you do it differently. Try it, make sure that there is no strict path, only you need not just a fortuneteller, but a medium (intermediary).
      So a person chooses his fate. There are two invariable points — birth and death — how everyone chooses to go the way; the problem is that some are not able to stand up for themselves and hide behind karma — it's easier!

    It was about this meeting between Putin and Obama that I commented on in the Syrian Trap Article. I carefully watched this meeting and it was clear that it was not difficult to guess that the puppet Obama intended to take radical measures in Syria at the direction of his sponsors. This is what, and as can be seen from the interview, was annoying Putin, now he will have to make significant adjustments to plans to get Syria out of the crisis, as well as to get out of this battle as a politically and politically-military winner. As for the victory in El Quseir and the attack on Aleppo, I think the victory has not yet begun .... the decisive battle is ahead.

      I agree, it is foolish to believe that the West, which invested huge amounts of money in the conflict, will simply take and retreat. If Assad begins to crush the radicals and mercenaries - the driven animals which is the west, even jackals can bite painfully. Most likely, if Assad remains a step before victory, the Saudis intervene in the open.

And over the years we have acquired the necessary flexibility, although it all started very sadly, namely with Mr. "Yes" - Kozyrev. They can be cunning, but as much as the Kremlin will allow them.

    The GXNUMX countries at the Northern Ireland Summit called on all parties to the Syrian conflict to fight Al Qaeda. This is stated in the communique adopted by them at the end of the summit.

    The leaders of the countries suggested that the Syrian authorities and the opposition join forces in order to oust Al-Qaeda and all those associated with it from the country. The document notes the concern of its authors about the growing outgoing terrorist threat from Syria.

    The communiqué also stresses the need for an early Geneva conference on the resolution of the Syrian conflict. According to the text of the document, all its authors agreed on the inadmissibility of military intervention in the civil war and insist on a political solution to the issue. Serious and constructive work in this direction is expected from both sides of the conflict. At the same time, the heads of the participating countries of the summit did not dwell separately on the fate of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

    The meeting also unanimously condemned the use of chemical weapons in Syria and called on the country's authorities to allow international observers to investigate relevant incidents. At the same time, according to Russian President Vladimir Putin, quoted by BBC News, not all countries agreed that the Syrian authorities used chemical weapons - some states believe that there is currently no solid evidence for this.

From the text of the statement: "We are deeply concerned about the growing threat of terrorism and extremism in Syria. We call on the Syrian authorities and the opposition at the upcoming Geneva-2 conference to jointly advocate the destruction and expulsion from Syria of all organizations and individuals associated with Al-Qaeda "... The payment of ransoms to terrorist groups is a source of income that goes to recruit new terrorists, to provide opportunities for organizing and committing terrorist attacks, and also stimulates new hostage-taking for ransom, thereby creating a danger for the citizens of our countries ... We categorically refuse from paying ransoms to terrorists. "

I think so, because for Amers, the defeat of the opposition will be equal to their own defeat and a strong blow to their image, which they are not ready to go to.

    If the first option is implemented, we would like for us not to stand aside, in vain if our fleet was sent there. And then the United States and NATO will not fight against Russia, they can only run out to the UN General Assembly or somewhere else, however, as always.

    Putin knows perfectly well that the defeat of the Anglo-Saxons in Syria means the beginning of the end for the West, and there they will play their game to the end. In light of this, the final joint statement on this meeting does not mean anything, and it makes no sense to bet on the negotiations in Geneva. It is rather a gain in time for the development of the success of the Syrian army. For Putin, this meeting was most likely important in terms of finding weaknesses in the Western system, and building a clear picture in the future of their future actions. Both Obama and his friends and Putin all understand this.
    Kind of, "I know that he knows, that I know that he knows." There is a big game going on, I think the advantage in which is for Putin, since this is his native environment, due to his professional skills.

      Does anyone remind anyone of the political games before World War II? Especially the diplomatic games of the USSR and Germany. The main thing is that Putin and Co. have time to prepare the Armed Forces for the battle, so that there is enough time won. And then I.V. Stalin and Co. did not have enough ...

    Of course, everything can be expected from the "decent and philanthropic" West, but still, Russia and Syria are now on horseback!

    Yes, the pack of the West took up arms - "Unite kashers of all countries", the old interpretation - "Workers of all countries unite". The grin of this pack is all menacing, but the tail trembles slightly, looking around at the sleeping Russian bear - who knows.

    I honestly do not share the author’s ratings either. On the one hand, he is right in many ways, but there is another side to the coin ... In fact, we drove them into a corner, diplomatic efforts to force Assad to surrender did not work, the militants are close to defeat ... What remains to the west? Surrender and retreat? Do you believe that? This meeting is just like trying on paper to legally record the fact that the Russian Federation was trying to stop the west, and diplomatically trying to stop the inevitable aggression. Only it seems to me that we did not win time, but in fact we rather lost it. We won with diplomatic tools - yes, we kind of agreed with us, but there were many examples when the West simply broke diplomatic agreements with concrete actions. Diplomatically, they also tied our hands - we can’t deliver the latest air defense systems to Syria, since it seems like we agreed that neither we nor the United States are supplying weapons to the warring parties. But this does not prevent the United States from delivering massive attacks with cruise missiles in order to destroy President Assad, but there is nothing to parry them. Yes, even if we had transferred the air defense division there, I am afraid this would not have changed the situation. And then what will we do? Squadron of BOD and 3's DC with tankers against the 6 fleet of the USA with reinforcement by planes from the Gulf of Aden and Persian? Of course, no one will allow a collision with our ships, but the maximum that they can do is save Tartus from being captured by their presence in it ... As it was correctly noted, the West put too much energy into destabilization in Syria to take and back off. And from my amateur point of view, I see no way that we could stop the invasion and attacks on Syria, with the exception of open intervention in the war. But this is already a very serious thing and no one will do it ...

      do not forget my friend ... that in Syria there are more than 20 thousand citizens of Russia on consular records. Therefore, Russia has full authority to intervene in the conflict in order to protect our citizens! but the whole question is ... will it intervene?

    Saudi army advances to Syrian border through Jordan

    Pro-Iranian resource Mirat Al-Jazeera has spread sensational information about the preparation of the Saudi-Turkish invasion of Syria.

    Starting in the morning on Saturday, June 15, in Riyadh there are continuous meetings and closed-door meetings. The Sadovskaya elite holds meetings with American and French diplomats, considering possible scenarios for the development of events in Syria. The Saudis are extremely concerned about the rapid progress of the Syrian army in northern Syria.

    The meetings are attended by the commanders of the Saudi army. At the same time, the possibility of opening a new front is being discussed with the Turks in order to prevent the Syrian army from establishing full control over the entire territory of the country. The Saudis began, without prior consultation with the Western Allies, transferring weapons for the opposition to bases in Turkey.

    The head of the National Security Council of Saudi Arabia, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, is in Turkey on a secret visit. Bandar is negotiating arms shipments to the Syrian factions and using the Turkish Air Force to transfer arms to Syrian territory.

    Saudi Arabia's military leaders have been "living in a state of constant excitement over the past few days, and expect any development of the situation and any orders."

    Meanwhile, over the past two days, Syrian opposition resources have been disseminating information about the inevitability of a direct military intervention by Saudi Arabia in Syria. On the Facebook pages of the rebels, they write that the Saudi army has already received the appropriate orders and is moving to the Syrian border through Jordan. Last night, a photograph was published as "evidence" with the caption "The vanguard of the Saudi armored column approached the Syrian-Jordanian border: We are in a hurry to help the heroes of the Levant!"

    It looks like an animal grin of a wounded beast (West) not ready to surrender so easily to the winner! I really hope that this is disinformation.

    Russia not only did not surrender Syria, but also promised major troubles to its "Western friends" if they decide to pacify Syria with a "no-fly zone."
    Despite the pessimism of individual comrades, I think Putin would not have climbed into the bottle and would not have become in a pose if he had no leverage. There would be no hope of victory, they would try to retreat while preserving their face and authority, and they fight so hard when they know a little more wink than all the rest. We will still fight for "peace among nations."

      Yes, it’s not pessimism, but the fact that there are many people left in power who openly betray the interests of the country in the name of their small-skinned ... They can interfere very much, and they already interfere if you follow our economy ...

    While Putin and Obama are playing chess culturally, the Turks and the Saudis are going to play their traditional game, like it’s there, something like “bash your head”. Note that this game is not played in the lobby of a five-star hotel, but in the fields and squares, and the participants plan to play in the fields and squares of Syria. They will gather some thread of the Arab-Islamic emergency meeting, hear the question of "stopping the bloodshed" and "providing international assistance to the brotherly Syrian people", decide to "introduce an Arab-Islamic limited contingent of peacekeepers," and introduce it. The Syrian army is already at the limit of forces, it will not keep tank wedges from the Turkish and Jordanian borders, converging to the coast.
    At his best, Assad will be able to keep the Alawite enclave on the coast, the "peacekeepers" are unlikely to want to get involved with the Russian fleet, because they can be piled on. And the Syrian fleet seems to be on the side of Assad.
    Essno "peacemakers" will do anything but peace. But, unfortunately, the outcome of the chess game will lose its significance.

    good evening smile I have been observing the development of events for a long time. Some of the members of the forum want to go to Syria as a volunteer to support one side or another in this conflict (volunteer means free, free) when you answer NO to yourself, then think about your posts about sending the fleet to Syria and units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. my opinion is simply to give a damn about the entire embargo and deliver weapons wherever we need and whatever we want, the United States is doing just that.

      I’m afraid it won’t work out, while Medvedev and the gop company are sitting in the government, who are frankly merging Russia ... Until all of this is rid of ... you can’t clean it up - this will continue. But what pleases, there are still positive trends, and hope, at least for me, has arisen ...
