Political analyst Sergei Markov: "Russia resists global insanity in the Middle East"

Political analyst Sergei Markov: "Russia resists global insanity in the Middle East"After the mass killings in Aleppo committed by the militants of the “Syrian opposition”, the Russian Foreign Ministry appealed to the world community to stop the bloody orgy in Syria.


A political scientist, member of the Public Chamber, vice-rector of the Russian Economic University. Plekhanov Sergey MARKOV.

- It is difficult to say now whether these attempts of our diplomacy to stabilize the situation in the Middle East in general and in Syria in particular will be crowned with success. Anyway - in the near future. And, nevertheless, such work is extremely necessary. We need to move in the direction of resolving the most difficult situation Russia has been making peacemaking efforts to solve the Syrian problem over the past two years, which is today, perhaps, the main constructive element in stopping the “bloody orgy”. From the very beginning, we told the world community that we should not rely on the victory of the Syrian opposition, that this opposition is barbaric in nature, and its possible victory cannot lead to anything good.

If Syria succeeds in restoring peace, Russia will become its key sponsor, one of the most important players in this extremely problematic region. For without the active participation of Russia in solving its problems, a peaceful life there is not possible.

Obviously, the role of our Western partners in this regard is absolutely destructive. They helped to overthrow Mubarak in Egypt, with the result that this country is more and more plunged into chaos. Recent events in Cairo and Alexandria are clear evidence of this. Libya - on the verge of total decay. Westerners inspired the revolution in Tunisia, and social and political degradation is also increasing there.

In Syria, where there was a very stable regime before the current social upheavals, the West concluded an “alliance with the devil” (represented by Saudi Arabia and other sponsors of radical Islamism) and helped it to carry out external aggression against the legitimate government of Bashar al-Assad.

That is, Russia is now opposed to global insanity in the Middle East. And people who really want peace in this region understand this well.

    There is no "global madness", there are planned events. If Assad resists, then Russia will, of course, gain VERY serious weight not only in the Middle East, but throughout the world. But this is still a pitchfork on the water ...

      You just have to act without looking back to the West. It is necessary to deeply give a damn about their perverted opinion, perverted in every sense of the word.
      More actively transfer weapons, both air defense - against possible external aggressors, and offensive against militants.

        All this is correct, BUT. I am very worried about one point, namely: the president of the Institute of the Middle East since 1993 is a certain Satanovsky Yevgeny Yanovich (one name is worth it!). Our media actively use the opinions of this "specialist". He probably gives his recommendations to the Government of the Russian Federation. And his opinions are very, very dubious.
        For example, he very often repeats, as a mantra, that Russia needs to do its own internal affairs and not go into Bl.Vostok. This is de costly, troublesome, and even Americans are very annoying. We don’t need to sit on several chairs, etc.
        In my opinion, this "specialist" does not work in the interests of Russia. But since he holds such a post, someone has put him there! And from there he actively influences the rudiments of the mind of an ordinary man in the street, who is not used to thinking and uses all the nonsense of such Haspods. And how many of them, such "specialists", have dug in all kinds of institutions and state structures!
        And so they deliberately mislead all public opinion and influence the government.
        The question is: what makes the country's leadership "keep" such figures in their posts, give them wide access to the media and allow them to influence political decisions ?!
        After all, it is still unknown for certain whether Russia delivered the S-300 to Syria or not? And I would call Putin’s current position more reinsurance than adequate.
        An adequate position, in my opinion, would be strong support by the Syrian army for arms and the secret participation of the Special Forces of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. We need to prepare a fighting army, we need to fire at fighters. It is necessary to destroy all this evil in the face of international bandits. And it’s better to do this in Syria, and not in the North Caucasus. And the more we put them there, the easier it will be for us later.
        Moreover, such our actions would seriously cool the warlike fervor in the west. And they would show the whole world that we would not joke.
        It's time to go on the offensive in all directions. The West is now in discord, the economic situation there is complicated, social tension is higher than ever and they will not withstand wars. And for us, local hostilities are the load on the military-industrial complex, R&D, employment and combat training!
        But, the country's leadership is waiting for something! Putin wants the Olympics to be held calmly - in the Caucasus he looks at all crimes through the fingers, is careful in Syria to prevent anything from happening.
        And this is fraught. In the event evil comes to the Caucasus, Chechnya may well unite with them and hit us in the back. Is not it?!
        So what are we waiting for?! ...

          you have a one-sided position without objective arguments, in your opinion - only you know what and how to do ...
          why aren't you president?
          But Satanovsky is a very competent man, but he is a Jew, and what’s wrong with that?
          Sometimes I hear his reports on the radio, he says everything is true and his phrases say nothing about what you listed - Russia needs to be engaged in its internal affairs and not climb into Bl.Vostok. This is de costly, troublesome, and even Americans are very annoying. We don’t need to sit on several chairs, etc., no need to mislead people.
          He himself collaborates with many important people of BV and is well known in the world. It is very important to have such a lever on BV. And again - Israel has a lot of our business, just like in Egypt, these are important regions for Russia, and it is necessary to have close informal contacts with their tops. And alas, there are very few such people in Russia who could support these contacts, so you don’t need to ... without knowing the depth of the issue.
          An adequate position, in my opinion, would be a decisive support by the arms of the Syrian army - why did you decide that she wasn’t? from TV?
          our actions would seriously cool the warlike fervor in the west. - do you think that the absence of a no-fly zone over Syria and many other completed tasks still do not roll?

                You don't have to read intelligence. There is an analysis of open sources. This method is widely used by all intelligence services and is available to any concerned citizen. And then, it is not difficult to determine the goals and immediate plans for today's actions of the West. Or do you think that the West is "looking for" world peace?
                When an aggressive neighbor lives next to you, sometimes beating up everyone who does not like him, then the turn will come when this neighbor will climb up to you with fists. So isn't it better to immediately, directly and decisively "warn" his intentions. The ways and methods can be different, but they MUST BE! And the current concurrence of our leadership, in my private opinion, is not acceptable.
                Well, something like that.

        I agree with you, in my opinion, Europe doesn’t care who will supply energy to the south, or Qatar to Saudi Arabia, or even Iran or Russia, via the southern stream, the main thing is cheaper, so the Russian war is more than profitable, otherwise it’s not correct sounds in relation to Syria at the end of the war the price of gas will fall, due to competition

    It is difficult to say now whether these attempts of our diplomacy to stabilize the situation in the Middle East in general and in Syria in particular will succeed. In any case, in the near future.


    in light of recent events, when the US Senate ratified arms deliveries to Syrian rebels, the answer is unequivocal - no

    If peace can be restored in Syria, then Russia will become its key sponsor, one of the most important players in this extremely problematic region.


    The United States will stake everything to prevent this from happening

    Obviously, the role of our Western partners in this regard is absolutely destructive.

      For Markov, they were, are and will be partners, so there is no mistake. And the Guarantor, whom Markov loves so much today, also calls them partners. However, Mr. Markov, before Garant, was equally passionately in love with the drunken Borya and Judah-Misha. If tomorrow a man comes to power in the country. calling the Americans enemies, you can rest assured, Markov will be one of the first to repeat it.

        The President always pronounces the word "partners" in relation to the USA and satellites as if "in quotation marks", and he pronounces it with obvious sarcasm. Only a very narrow-minded (or white-tape-engaged) person can ignore this. This, of course, is just my (purely subjective) opinion.

    I don’t think you can help Syria with language and diplomacy. Maximum veto on no-fly zone. You can forget about the constructive dialogue. The State Department and the West spit on thousands of dead civilians, as well as spit on the fact that thousands of terrorists are fighting against Assad (to achieve the goal - all goals are good). Therefore, the only way out is to help Assad as much as possible with military equipment, finances and military personnel. Until you dig this bearded infection into the ground with tanks, there will be no peace !!!

      Correctly written. There is a time to speak the word, but now Syria needs real help. In this "game" the cards are open. There is no need for Russia to look around. It is not the S-300 of a defense nature that should be supplied to Syria, but Iskander. Not T-72, but T-90, infantry fighting vehicles, Armor, flamethrowers, etc. Americans and their henchmen should know whoever comes with a sword will die by the sword

        S-300 also does not hurt. But offensive weapons are needed. The United States is a criminal mafia state, without regard to this cattle, it is necessary to provide all that is possible to help the people of Syria. The Middle East is blazing through the efforts of the Hamburgers.

    I'm not sure what is happening in Syria "will pass by itself." No. States, it seems, have planned more active actions in Syria in the fall. It will take a more sane reaction of Russia and China on the situation. Will it..?

        China! It is not yet known how China will behave if Russia and the United States collide. Do not forget that the Chinese have territorial claims against Russia. Look at their history textbooks. I don’t think that the leadership is aware of what the Chinese children are taught. Do not trust them 100%. better to have an open enemy than such an ally

      And what should they do, why, and why? —That you are an abstract knowledgeable, and thinker, mathematician. And they are specifically historical from their experiences, faith, and customs of their peoples, countries and ideologies, besides, they are infinitely materially technically dependent on material assistance, and are completely dependent on Western-sponsored media (like Russia today, Fedorov from deputies). In addition, having long lost its living faith and its experience, Russia, like Old Israel, which God rejected, imposes, divides, associates not with the living Orthodox Faith, but with its pagan russia long ago rejected by God, and does not lead to God (secular) - because , and she herself doesn’t have it, and to our mess, claims, self-righteousness and bureaucratic lawlessness, in possible countries all those who accept, having a nightmare, are worse than ours. Uncle V. - good in his besieged Kremlin and without Poles, good things, but outside the Kremlin both he himself and his bike zero for the whole pack of new rich and endlessly greedy and hungry officials from his inner circle.

    The West does not care how much blood is shed, it is not the blood of their citizens. They are ready to supply the thugs with weapons so that they would continue to kill, turning a blind eye to all the crimes they commit, justifying this by the struggle for democracy (because of the Western "leaders" a good, in meaning, word turned into a curse). But very soon these bandits will come to Europe and America and start killing there. Then the mouse's tears will flow to the cat.

    If Syria succeeds in restoring peace, Russia will become its key sponsor, one of the most important players in this extremely problematic region. For without the active participation of Russia in solving its problems, a peaceful life there is not possible.

    Hello everyone!)
    But this is perhaps the key point in this article. Indeed, if the terrorists of the Syrian "opposition" are completely suppressed, Russia will show the whole world that it was she who brought peace back to this country (as a consequence, peace and to that part of the region), while the United States was trying to destroy everything.
    The authority of Russia in this case will be significantly greater in this region than that of America, and therefore Russia will be there to steer. wink

      Oil is driving everything there in Syria. Or rather, the corridor for delivering oil and gas from Arabia to Qatar Iraq and Iran to Europe. By the way, this corridor is also not bad for Iran ... like the Saudis. So, economic exporters were faced with potential exporters.
      If the West has this corridor, our budget will collapse and then we will have a khan. So the later this corridor is better, the option of creating Ukraine in the Middle East in the person of Syria is also possible laughing
      This war is for a long time ... it would be better if mankind completely abandoned oil and gas. laughing

          The West is primarily iron pragmatism. I did not say for cheap. Cheap gas and oil is communism and the prosperity of the planet and China laughing

He wanted to take a walk in general laughing to the west, and then, as in life, first there were big expenses — restaurants / fights and then complete family asceticism — with cost control and the emergence of new Middle Eastern oligarchs from oil. Do you think if we remove the oligarchs \ we pay off corruption the prices will be the same? They will fall down.
          The prices are high but the practical sense for the peoples with oil is small because all the cream skim units anyway. So, in fact, expensive oil is very cheap for the West. The Saudi monarch does not forget his people, although he does not have a lot of subjects. Here for Nigeria, the West does not create paradise life, but it is rich in oil and population.

            if Assad is thrown off, Qatar through Syria will begin to push gas to Europe at a cheap price. that’s why the whole mess and cries of the West about Assad. if the Qatari gas reaches Europe, then the end of the Russian gas monopoly. therefore Russia clings to the Assad like that. which is quite reasonable. economic interests should be protected

    From the very beginning we told the world community that we should not bet on the victory of the Syrian opposition, that this opposition is barbaric in nature, and its possible victory cannot lead to anything good.
    Amer, who did not know that it was barbaric? They knew. We were just counting on a quick victory. And there, under the guise of victorious, they would explain again to the world that this is better for everyone (and most importantly - for the Syrians), and they will reeducate the barbarians. And today this barbarism in all its outrageous manifestations has become visible to everyone, and even the amers have become somehow reluctant to openly take the side of the "opposition". Not kissing cannibals. It's too much even for them. So they fell into a stupor. And not only them. They supply weapons to barbarians. Where without it. Force of habit, however. But on the political front, they are somehow not as aggressive as they were a year ago. Well, Europe generally stuck. There are no brains of their own, and new commands are not received. So they live in a paradox. They are waiting, sir.

    From Minsk. I remember, a respected political scientist, pretending to have forgotten, a simple thing. From 54 to 56 years old, USSR, i.e. Russia, was a sponsor of both the United Arab Republic (United Arab Republic - Syria + Egypt), and all the other Arab rascals in its opposition to Israel. And, despite the mountains of weapons, billions of dollars, even those dollars backed by the gold of Fort Knox, the Arabs screwed up ... or all six wars against the Jews. And rightly so. And then, now, the caliph of the Great Arab Caliphate from Morocco to Dagestan, would be some kind of ghoul like bin Laden. The Arabs did not return any spears! Not a cent! Even with sand! And Rosii again wants to step on the same rake. Sponsorship involves the restoration of countries destroyed by the Arab revolutions. Syria, Libya, and on the list. DO YOU NEED IT ?! Better supply gas to all villages, do warm toilets in all rural schools! Deal with "your Middle East - Caucasus!" Solve your migration problems! No, sponsors again! Pilezh dough again !!! And the political scientist Markov has such a job, the worse the international situation, the thicker the layer of butter on his sandwich. The article is a minus.

That’s thought, but m. and Nekrasov is right with his poem about a Russian woman, who understands and redeems and carries on her exhausted shoulders everything and everything. It turns out that now there are no women and grandmothers sitting on the bedside, but the seeds in the empty bikes are frayed by wearing out their front teeth. None, it’s the peasants who have taken up this matter, and it is a mustache of knights, advisers, and SCIENTISTS. But you just don’t understand one thing, how to do all this? - Is it possible that they do not dry out from drinking and drinking their beer and idle talk, are our cabinet sages?

    "After victories in El-Quseir, Tell-Kalah, Khalidiya (Homs), Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, all attention will be focused on achieving success in Aleppo - contrary to the plans of the so-called armed opposition, which is financed by Saudi Arabia and supported by intelligence from the states hostile to Syria." , - quotes the newspaper "Al-Watan" / "Motherland" / statement of the source.
    And in general, after the successful operations of the Syrian army, it seems to me inappropriate to rush to the Geneva-2. After all, at this meeting agreements can be reached on the cessation of hostilities, which will give the militants the opportunity to regroup and receive reinforcements in the form of manpower and weapons.

    And here is some more interesting information:
    The Akhabar Alaan television channel showed a plot about the use of sophisticated modern cameras by the Syrian army to monitor the movement of rebels.
    The TV channel reports that on July 21, 61 militants of the "Syrian Free Army" were killed in the province of Damascus as a result of a surprise attack by the army.
    The channel, citing an officer in the Syrian army, claims that this was made possible by the use of modern Russian-made cameras that can monitor enemy movements in all weather conditions and in the dark.
    The officer said that cameras can shoot at a distance of up to 10 km in conditions of poor visibility and in the dark. The cameras are installed on the basis of the 22nd brigade in Adra.
    The cameras are controlled from the operational headquarters, in which the collected information flows.
    The Syrian portal dampress reports that the Syrian armed forces received a powerful Chinese-made radar HT-233.
    The portal claims [4] that the Chinese radar is a copy of the Russian 92N6 radar used in the S-300 missile defense system.
    The radar operates at a distance of up to 150 km, can recognize small targets and track 50 targets at the same time.

    Good day to all!
    Political scientists as the author of the article, for the most part, are prostitutes, and adjust their opinions according to the angle of view from above (or from the Customer / Sponsor).
    The fact that now he expresses healthy thoughts in the article and makes the right conclusions, does not mean that he said the same thing before that and then he will say the same thing as this article.
    The reasons for the very beginning of the Islamic interventionand to Syria, there are many important and perhaps still not yet revealed reasons for us (except territory needed by the West for a transit PIPE) and just old enemy of Israel and Turkey.
    But the fact, known to all of us sane people and friends of Syria, is that before the intervention and now Assad supports 75-85% of the entire population, that Syria is a secular state, where until 2011 Syrians, Muslims, Christians, Kurds and many other nationalities lived peacefully .
    Direct military and econ. Russian support plus China's support international relations, thank God not allowed to establish from the very beginning no-fly zone over Syria under the mandate of NATO and the UN, pRepeat the humanitarian bombing of Serbia and the air attacks of NATO forces in Libya.
    In my opinion, the main factor of resistance to external aggressors, apart from Russia's help, is still the support of the Assad government by its Syrian people.
    Yes, for 3 years of fighting, many have already died and civilians will die, many leaders of the country and the army have been killed as a result of terrorist attacks, not in battle, but also the ranks of supporters of preserving Syria as a secular cohesive state cleared of all unstable defectors (2011-2012) both from the leadership of the country and the army, police and special services.
    Now there are already many opposition militants surrendering weapons, their families are returning under the protection of the Syrian army, using the latest amnesty, so the process itself goes towards the country's return to peaceful life and the expulsion of Muslim Muslim mercenaries from all over the world from Syria.
    It remains only to wish the Syrian leadership and people the quickest end of this intervention and the beginning of the restoration of their economy and agriculture.
    Well, and that after a complete victory, the weight of Russia as a guarantor of peace and not war and coups, will increase throughout the world and in many Muslim countries.
    After all, belligerent Islam itself pushed the United States (CIA) before the Soviet Union was involved in the Islamic conflict in Afghanistan (80s).
    What veterans of American secret politics are now openly boasting about in their memoirs, that their plan came out completely in order to return the US’s humiliation from defeat to Vietnam ...
    In my opinion after some 30-40 years militant Islam in the world itself will weaken, no matter how it is supported by Western customersand coups and interventions.
    After all, it will become clear to the Muslims themselves over the same 30-40 years that, following the calls of the sheikhs, mullahs and the "perverted interpretation of the Koran" for the glory of Allah, they killed thousands and millions of unbelievers (Christians and others), overthrew secular governments, etc.
    But what will they receive as a result, other than fratricide?
    A new economy, a working industry, agricultural production, even when replenishing green or other banknotes - on the basis of only all kinds of interpretations of the Koran, cannot be created! Work on the field or behind the machine, "the warriors of Allah" not accustomed and will not want. What country of the world will they then want to attack or carry out a coup there?
    In addition, if after 30-40 years the price and demand of oil and gas drops sharply, since the most expensive is drinking water and fields suitable for growing products, then the current executors of instructions from the USA (I mean OAU, Qatar, etc.) will lose money and weight.
    One cannot live by war and the killing of "artificially created opponents".
    The story of the raids of the Huns, Attila or Rome - in my opinion it will not happen again.

    Gaddafi is fused into the lung because he still could not be protected, this is obvious. Libya is too far away. In addition, the whole world saw the true "face of democracy", although this is a little cynical. He was not an ally of Russia. Yes, he was made a "sacrificial goat" and although he crawled before the war in front of the West and sponsored some politicians with money, the fate it was decided. What now can defend the whole of Africa. Syria is another matter, absolutely different. Through Syria they want to blow up Iran, the Caucasus and Central Asia. Now, if Assad is devoured with him, millions and maybe tens of millions in other countries will be devoured. And although I personally believe that there is overpopulation there and it would be high time to solve this problem, the Middle East catastrophe could also affect Russia in connection with the spread of the war to its borders.
    Therefore, I look with some concern at the events taking place there. smile

    friend, just open the map and see how many countries are located around Iran and in which countries of the US base. Americans have long been involved in the development of oil and gas in the Caspian. For the transfer of a large number of troops and equipment, there are Saudi ports of Qatari Omanis, etc. Americans simply squeeze Iran out of the Middle East region, the main ally of which is Syria and Lebanese hezbollah. they need oil and gas deposits of Iran, there is no dispute. All American firms were expelled from the country after the Iranian revolution, and their assets were nationalized. Americans suffered huge financial losses there. They are not used to forgiving such things.

As long as Russia is there, it will remain the No. 1 geopolitical enemy for the United States, because our defeat means life for the states, in any other case, America kirdyk in the near future.
