Saudi Arabia against the USSR and Russia

Speaking of the enemies of the Soviet Union, the United States, Great Britain, other NATO countries recall, but they forget such a country of the East as Saudi Arabia. And in vain, Riyadh was and continues to be the enemy of Russia and the Russian people.


The Soviet Union was the product of a great project that could lead to the creation of a new humanity, symbolized by a giant with the face of a thinker, a powerful hand throwing a satellite ball into space. Russia-USSR was the first power in the world to propose to humanity a project for a just and reasonable society of the Future, free from parasitism, exploitation and oppression of some people by others. In many ways, such a society was shown in the genius novel of the Russian philosopher-cosmist, writer Ivan Antonovich Efremov “The Bull Hour”. The man of such a society is energetic, powerful, physically and intellectually developed, good-willed. He penetrates the secrets of the cosmos, knows the energy of the atomic nucleus and the secrets of the human psyche. The man of the future builds an underwater city and spacecraft, develops the Moon and Mars, goes beyond the limits of the Solar System. The man of the socialist future of mankind has a goal, like that of all mankind His present is not flawed, like a modern person, whose life is determined by the search for pleasure (hedonism) and consumption.

With all its flaws, caused by the withdrawal from the main road to a bright future, after the death of Stalin and the betrayal of Khrushchev and part of the Soviet "elite", the Soviet Union 1970-1980-s carried the most powerful charge of bright energy, the germ of the Future of all humanity. In the Union, the sprouts of the greatest breakthrough of humanity in the next era, the cosmic one, appeared. This possibility caused panic among the rulers of the Western world, who control a large part of the planet through finance, economy and military technology. For centuries, the masters of the West built a completely different world — a slave-owning civilization, where all the blessings belong to a handful of rich people, and most people exist in constant need, exhausting work, fear and suffering (in the terminology of Efremov, inferno world). “World backstage” built the world order, like a global pyramid, where at the top are “masters of life”, at medium levels, presidents, governments, deputies are “overseers”, below are “slaves” who have different illusions as chains the race of consumption, the search for new and new pleasures, the financial and credit system, etc.

Naturally, the rulers of Western civilization did not want to lose and lose power over humanity, to go into oblivion. Therefore, the forces that were dragging humanity back into the past, dreaming of a neo-slave system, where high technology would be available only to the “elect”, threw all available resources and resources against the Soviet civilization bearing the germ of sunny Tomorrow. From the point of view of cosmic philosophy, it was a struggle between the forces of Light and darkness (inferno). The union of the forces of darkness was very heterogeneous, there was also the Vatican, which had centuries of experience in fighting the Russian state, and the USA, where various Masonic orders and Christian Protestant fundamentalists and Muslim Pakistan and Saudi Arabia had great influence.

History alliance

Saudi Arabia played a major role in the fight against the USSR. The third Saudi state was formed with the support of the British Empire. In 1938, huge oil fields were discovered in Saudi Arabia. Already in the 1930-ies in the territory of Saudi Arabia acted Standard Oil Company of California, which was part of the "empire" of the Rockefellers. In 1940, the United States and Saudi Arabia established full diplomatic relations. The United States took into account the strategic position of Saudi Arabia, the religious factor, the most important religious centers of the Muslim world - Mecca and Medina and the possession of the world's largest oil reserves are located on the territory of the state. In turn, the Arab monarchy needed a strong patron, wanted to weaken the influence of Great Britain in the region, and it needed capital investments to develop the oil industry.

In 1943, US President Franklin Roosevelt included Saudi Arabia in the Lend-Lease program. In 1944, the Secretary of State presented a number of projects to expand American long-term financial assistance. To meet the immediate needs of Saudi Arabia, it was proposed to provide a loan in the amount of 43 million dollars for a period of 5 years. The Export-Import Bank of the United States was to provide funding for joint US-Arab projects in various fields. The command of the US military was to begin building airfields and related communications, infrastructure, and also send military advisers to train the Arab army and create strategically important military facilities. In February 1945, the leadership of the State Naval Coordination Committee (SWNCC) informed Roosevelt about the results of the work done. The American president was offered to carry out a complete modernization of Saudi Arabia, which required about 28 - 57 million dollars for the period of 1945-1950. The US military had to build airfields and a network of modern roads. The United States provided the Arabs with money for the development of the oil industry. The State Department stressed the strategic importance of Saudi Arabia’s territory, the air routes through it, and the value of Middle Eastern oil for the US military.

In February 1945, after the end of the Yalta conference, Roosevelt met with Saudi King Abdulaziz ibn Saud. The negotiations took place on board the American Quincy warship in the Suez Canal. On the ship was contracted. "Quincy Pact", the agreement giving the US monopoly rights to oil Saudi Arabia. American companies received a monopoly on exploration, development of fields and the purchase of oil. As a payment, the Saudis were promised a security guarantee against any external threat. US economic assistance has become key to the development of the kingdom’s oil sector. The oil of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region as a whole has served the United States as the basis for the implementation of the “conservation theory”. Since 1948, US imports of crude oil and petroleum products for the first time exceeded US exports. Actually American oil fields were subject to conservation, to preserve domestic reserves for the future.


Abdul-Aziz Ibn Saud meeting with US President Franklin Roosevelt in 1945 year.

Initially, oil revenues went directly to the royal family. However, as profits grew, money flowed into the state treasury. Saudi Arabia has become the richest state in the region. And King Abdul-Azis made a huge fortune, which in 1952 was estimated at 200 million US dollars. Saudi Arabia was a very peculiar state - a quarter of the explored reserves of “black gold” on the planet made it one of the richest countries in the world, the world center of the Islamic religion, the keeper of Muslim shrines that attract hundreds of thousands of pilgrims and absolute monarchy, where all power belongs to the king. The official religion in the country is Islam in the form of Salafi (Wahhabism). There are Sharia norms in the country, and their violators may incur severe punishment, including cutting off the head.

This "oil barrel" under the rule of religious fundamentalists and became the trump card of the United States and the masters of the West in the struggle against the USSR. The United States retained its influence in Saudi Arabia in the 1950-1960-s, and in the 1970-s their union received a new breath. In 1973, the famous oil crisis occurred when the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) declared during the October War between a number of Arab countries, on the one hand, and Israel, on the other, that it would not supply oil to the states supporting the Jewish state. As a result, the price of oil soared from three dollars to twelve dollars per barrel. This event revealed the true scale of the dependence of the countries of the world on the “oil needle” and led to an increase in the export of oil to the West from the USSR. The Soviet Union won tactically, but lost in the strategic, instead of developing breakthrough technologies and investments in the future, the country began to get used to the “easy money”. The embargo did not last long, but it was enough for significant consequences. In particular, in the US, oil companies, under the pretext of rising costs, have significantly increased the prices of all types of fuel, and consumers have seriously suffered.

The golden stream to Saudi Arabia has grown significantly. The binding of the Saudi elite to a luxurious life has become even stronger. Wealthy Saudis bought luxury cars, furnished Western-style houses, traveled around the world, joining the entertainment of the Western elite. At the same time, part of the country remained in the Middle Ages. Washington came up with a plan for how to use Saudi Arabia against the USSR and at the same time make money. Almost immediately after the lifting of the embargo, the Americans began negotiations with the Saudis and offered them guarantees of military security, technical support, military equipment, training of specialists and modernization of the country. Arab billions were transferred to the United States. This ensured the safety of the income of the Saudis and profits. Saudi Arabia bought US securities - government securities and corporate shares, receiving interest on investments. The result was a very profitable process for the United States: money for oil was being returned to America. In addition, the Americans, with the money of the Arabs, created modern infrastructure in the country - European cities, oil refining capacities, ports, airfields, roads, pipelines, power grids, etc. In the cities, service facilities appeared - hotels, hotels, shops, entertainment and shopping centers piled with goods from around the world, etc. At the same time, the Saudis did not even have to work for themselves — thousands of incomplete workers from other Arab countries, Southeast Asia, began to work for them. Saudi Arabia received security guarantees against a possible threat from the more militarily powerful neighbors — Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Israel.

As a result of negotiations between the two powers, the United States and Saudi Arabia Joint Economic Commission (JECOR) was established. Commission work supervised by the United States Department of the Treasury. In just a few years, Saudi Arabia has been modernized. Washington realized a very important task - the main Saudis money turned out to be in the USA. Arabian sheikhs were vitally interested in strengthening the United States. On their neck hung a financial noose. If desired, the United States could confiscate their wealth. The next stage in the US-Saudi relations were negotiations on the fight against the USSR.

          Read Efremov, increase your measure of understanding of what is happening. Mankind is simply obliged to expand its interests beyond space, including. Or there is a desire to constantly ride in a creaking cart in a deep rut, and even in a vicious circle of catastrophe of today's history.

        I agree completely, but with only one caveat - they are still in the Stone Age at the level of consciousness, the rest is only a beautiful screen, and even that is not ours, but from the Anglo-Saxons. Religion in the broad sense is completely absent, only the radical interpretation of the Qur'an + to this the death penalty with chopping off the head, the "special" position of women, the absolute power of the ruling "elite". Yes, they almost forgot the same best friends of the Americans, how not to remember the stream of Arab wisdom "Tell me who your friend is and I will tell you who you are."

      Why not arrange an Arab spring with them? There is a basis for this. First of all, young people are outraged by the situation in Arabia. All money is in power, and power is inherited? what the hell in the 21st century? Clan feuds. In general, everything is there in order to deploy the same orange, lilac and other revolutions in Arabia. I think how we will recapture Syria, our specialists will take up Arabia ... I would be very happy about that!

    The article is BOLD plus. I wanted to write something like that myself. Saudi Arabia behaves like a hostile state during the war. The USSR understood this and he had an operational plan of attacks on this adder. The SA supported the Taliban and actively helped militants in Chechnya. But for some reason they don’t talk about it with us.

Article plus, do not forget your enemies. Especially as slippery and insidious as our "partners." Fear Danians bringing gifts

        Demonizing them is also not worth it. There are different ones, of course there will be Moscow and St. Petersburg, but Moscow and St. Petersburg are far from the whole of Russia. How not to recall the Rasteryaev combiners "But so far we have such patsans in our country ...". On my own behalf, I’ll add that there have always been and will always be young men and women in Russia who are capable of preserving and increasing our RUSSIAN CIVILIZATION in an unequal struggle.

    The Soviet Union was the product of a great project that could lead to the creation of a new humanity, the symbol of which was a giant with the face of a thinker, with a powerful hand throwing a satellite ball into space.


    The Soviet Union was indicative, as an example, when a powerful country sells its own leadership. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Well, of course, there are facts that Saudi Arabia relies on, or rather the damned Saudi royal house (they will die) ... Saudi Arabia is a country where the religion is Wahhabi Islam, democratic institutions are absent even as an imitation ... Saudi Arabia's foreign policy It is aimed at maintaining the kingdom's key positions on the Arabian Peninsula, among Islamic states and oil exporting states. Saudi diplomacy is shaking the entire region with sharia war. Also, do not forget that Saudi Arabia is the birthplace of the leader of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization, Osama bin Laden. All this garbage will smell while the United States pumps oil in this country. Today in Saudi Arabia there are over 24 thousand schools with a Wahhabi orientation, and the United States is well aware of this. But since oil is black gold, they can not oppose to the Saudis (they die) ... As for Russia, she accused all this garbage of financing terrorists in Syria http://ag.kz/news/891551/, It also happened embarrassment, one of the many princes of Saudi Arabia disowned his family, a small video of the RT channel about it ...

    Maybe you don’t have to complain about the fate and the fact that Saudi Arabia is a state hostile to Russia, or maybe you just need to do something? Does the state have an extensive zoo of pigs which can be planted in other countries that are anti-Russian in one way or another, with the Saudis nobody has ever he didn’t really fight, it’s also necessary to understand that SA is a medieval country, all of whose happiness is in huge oil reserves, in no way does it represent anything, just the Americans were the first to take them under their guardianship, sending their “friends” the British, who also laid their eyes on the SA, he understands who owes his well-being and all this anti-Americanism to the public does not mean anything the Saudis are one of the most faithful allies of the United States, otherwise they understand that they will simply tear them apart.

    I would also like to recall the "scammers" of the Saudis. When the Russian Federation entered into an agreement with Iran for the supply of C-300 in the amount of $ 4 billion, the Saudis promised Medvedev in exchange for the cancellation of the contract with Iran the purchase of 5-7 billion. DAM agreed, and the Saudis signed a contract with the United States. It's time. It’s high time to stir up this klopovnik. Are our special services going to do this? There is a tangle of problems! Just touch!

      but it seems that they want to repeat the same scenario

      A huge amount of dollars is tied to oil futures transactions, to collapse the price of oil today, means to put in the category of "unnecessary" TONS green pieces of paper. There is nothing to tie them. Below is a table of oil contracts in one day!

      Exchange Contract Turnover, 12 Feb
      RTS BRENT 100,527 Oil
      NYMEX Light Sweet Crude Oil 621,097
      ICE Brent Crude futures 316,897
      The RTS exchange announced a new record: on February 12, according to the results of the afternoon session, the trading volume of BRENT oil futures amounted to 100 527 contracts, which is equivalent to $ 73,5 million.

        This money is not good for such a serious product. and a futures trade is a zero-outcome trade, that is, your (any other) loss is my (any other) Winnings. Money there is not bogged down, they are in work. The high price of oil hits, first of all, in China, which is now focused on the main economic blow from the USA. The logic is simple - everything is traded in dollars, and the one who prints them has the ability to steer prices. In principle, Russia is still relatively safe in terms of oil prices

    Alexander, thanks for the article. The Saudis are the nerve node of the region, and you should not let your eyes off them. Funding for radical movements, buying weapons, sponsoring “springs,” etc., etc. — these are all Saudia and henchmen, like Qatar.
    I will dig a little deeper from the point of view of the technical and economic point - which little or almost nothing is known to non-specialists. But I still gave 15 years of my life to the “oil industry”.
    So roaring forties. Geologist King Hubbard deals with the problem of oil and oil peak, lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and works for several companies, including Shell.
    Hubbard revealed the pattern that for any American oil state, the statement is true that when about half of the oil found there is recovered, it becomes difficult to extract what is left and the production figure drops, that is, the so-called peak of oil production occurs.

    He developed the reasoning and made the further assumption that if this is true for Texas or Oklahoma, then this will be true for the United States as a whole. He calculated that in the USA the peak of oil will come in 1970. At that time, everyone decided that he was crazy, but subsequent events showed that he was right, and that in the USA the oil peak really occurred in the beginning of the 1970's.
    Despite skepticism, stakeholders supported Hubbard and the United States switched from large-scale oil exports (until the 1950 years, the United States produced more oil than any other country in the world, and were also a leading oil exporter) to its import. First of all, in Saudi Arabia. Oils in terms of hydrocarbon composition and depth are the best in the world.
    The United States is more than anyone else interested in Saudi forever freezing in the form of a bone monarchical structure, with which it is easy to negotiate. And this clearly illustrates the dual policy of the United States, because in Saudi Arabia "human rights are not violated." How so how ...

    It seems to me that, along with Saudi Arabia, you need to look at Qatar. I would like to know if these two countries are in the same connection, or are there any contradictions between them that we could use favorably?

    In my unprofessional view, the entire Middle East is a tangle of contradictions, unbridled medieval passions, betrayal ... The only thing that unites them is a passionate "love" for Israel.

    I wonder if there are predictions of what will happen in the region if it is impossible to calmly extract oil and gas from the wells, what natural cataclysm or “Muslim brothers” happen to start blowing up “non-halal” wells?

    Good article. The author forgot to mention that the population of CA is about 30 million people, the population is young, and it is constantly growing. Territory 12th in the world. Yes, Saudi money is like a noose, but Russian money is also there. The Saudis, thanks to wise leadership, have become rich in oil and gas, exporting wheat! By the way, Dubai has 60% of GDP from tourism, the Saudis also began to build a similar resort on the Red Sea, I don’t know for themselves or for tourists. They fell under the strong. States cover them, no problem. The Saudis, and indeed the Arabs, are actively buying out the best lands in Europe. Not stupid? But it is 100% enemy. There is no alignment of Islam against. Russia has Muslim friends, there are Christian enemies. Religion has nothing to do with it, as you can see. Therefore, the division of the population of Russia according to the religious principle destroys Russia, and vice versa, the creation of a national paradise makes the most devout Muslim 100% Russian.

    bliiiinn, and so, who is to blame for everything, but the fact that when they bought the combine in the USSR, they gave the second one for free at the factory, because the first one broke down almost immediately and the second one was used to repair the first one, in order to lift concrete blocks on our Severstal first used an entire crew to service one Soviet crane, and then when it broke, they drove a Japanese crane with one !! human attendants ------- so that means the Saudis are to blame.

        You are right kavkaz8888. Judging by the vocabulary in the comments, this is the brother of Ellochka the cannibal from "12 chairs".

    Arabs were (in modern language) suckers. Behind the mirror and dubious guarantees gave control of their resources to the Americans. Now they are dancing to their tune, for all their incompatibility. Suckers !!! PS insanity grows stronger, the Arab kings will exhaust themselves as the oil runs out

    And it seems to me that it’s enough to pay attention to the fact that someone will think about us. It is necessary to dictate your conditions. Demolish Saudi Arabia along with their oil rigs. Previously, the whole world was afraid of Russia, they are still afraid. May it not be otherwise.

    "Speaking about the enemies of the Soviet Union, they recall the United States, Great Britain, other NATO countries, but they forget such a country of the East as Saudi Arabia. And completely in vain, Riyadh has been and continues to be an enemy of Russia and the Russian people." - I think no one in their right mind and memory will dispute this fact. The Saudis have always been enemies. Somehow businessmen came to me from there - I haven’t seen so much pomp and arrogance for a long time. They remind our collective farmers who have reached the dough and power - but you cannot hide the savage nature of monkeys recently descended from a palm tree. Lovers of letting gold dust in their eyes is about them. It is very difficult to do business with them. Pretty unpleasant characters.

    Saudi Arabia is like a lamus paper for the United States, they are ready to make friends even with the devil if they consider that this is for the good of the United States. They forgiven September 11 (there were Saudis), they support the Syrian opposition represented by al-Qaeda supported by the Saudis, they do not see that there is no democracy, and that homosexuals have the death penalty, but they reproach Russia for banning “blue propaganda” (to be honest I I consider this law to be stupid and to show off because in small towns I haven’t seen blue propaganda, but there is a lot of criminal propaganda, and because of them I don’t risk late to go outside, but Moscow knows better).

    Muslim countries of any continent cannot be ours, positive - not a single one. Negative examples - the sea. It is necessary to ensure that compatriot Muslims are less oriented toward the “foreign lands”, but in pre-revolutionary Russia they can ensure the loyalty of Muslims for centuries, and the Soviet experience of international education defeated all the hopes of the enemies for the country's internal split, despite the fact that there were renegade traitors.

    I have long been waiting for such an article.
    As I understand it, the Shtatovs themselves do not want to do dirty work, for various reasons. To do this, they have such states as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, which are not involved in the training of militants and the financing of terrorism. Interestingly, all these movements such as Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood would have lasted for a long time under their atrocious laws if they really wanted to deal with them. I think no.
    In the hands of the leaders of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, the blood of so many people, including from our country (from Afghanistan to the present day in Chechnya, Dagestan, etc.).
    Therefore, the attitude towards these countries should be appropriate. Another thing is that it is naturally not necessary to do this directly. I think that there are many ways to spoil the life of the Saudis by helping (unofficially, naturally) their enemies, or by using the principle of "divide and conquer."
    At the same time, he drew attention to the following phrase in the article:
    Gold flow to Saudi Arabia has grown significantly. The link between the Saudi elite and luxury living has been further strengthened. Wealthy Saudis bought luxury cars, furnished Western-style houses, traveled around the world, joining the entertainment of the Western elite. At the same time, part of the country remained in the Middle Ages. In Washington, they came up with a plan on how to use Saudi Arabia against the USSR and at the same time earn. Almost immediately after the lifting of the embargo, the Americans began negotiations with the Saudis and offered them guarantees of military security, technical support, military equipment, training of specialists and modernization of the country. Arab billions were transferred to the United States. This ensured the security of Saudi income and profits. Saudi Arabia bought American securities - government securities and corporate shares, receiving interest from investments. The process turned out to be very beneficial for the United States: money for oil was returned back to America. In addition, the Americans, with the money of the Arabs, created a modern infrastructure in the country — European-style cities, oil refining capacities, ports, airfields, roads, pipelines, electric networks, etc. Service objects — hotels, hotels, shops, entertainment, and shopping — appeared in cities. centers littered with goods from around the world, etc.
    To be honest - it does not remind you of what happened and is happening in Russia.
    The difference is that nobody does the infrastructure with us, and so .. Also, we pump oil to the west, we get phantom dollars, for which we often buy US government bonds.
    Does this also have to do something?

    It cannot be that they did not have a weak point. All countries have an Achilles heel, GDP just needs to be dealt with tightly. Russian SVR can do it (launch a revolution there) to breathe in the seeds of democracy, so to speak. That's what it seems to me to do with them!

    not all Saudis are as good with money as it seems, during the default they took loans from the World Bank. They have a very expensive economy, and all the capitals of their princes and others are virtual money with which they receive interest, and if you suddenly want to take all the money from the bank, you most likely will not get anything.

    An excerpt from the conversation under the heading “ours abroad”, although not Saudi Arabia, but the United Arab Emirates, will still be interesting for you to read.

    - Do the poor here take proper care of the population? Are there high unemployment and maternity benefits? Are there any pensions?

    - The poor among the locals are not here in principle, the locals are only rich and very rich. The state helps its citizens from all sides. Housing is either free or on an interest-free loan, which can then be forgiven. At birth, a child is given between $ 20 and $ 000 and a villa. The apartment remains in the property, it can, for example, be rented out. Education can be obtained free of charge in any country in the world at the expense of the state. Men are paid a monthly allowance of $ 50 every month just because you are a citizen of the UAE ... And the amount of these benefits, loans and other privileges is simply huge! At the birth of a third child, by the way, all loans are canceled. So most locals just don't work. There are no taxes in the country.

      Krasnodar region.
      My third child was born two months ago. After a certain fuss, the result:
      1 (with copecks) in total. This is one-time.
      2. 11000 (with copecks) monthly. THIS IS AS A POOR FAMILY. (We are not painted). If you register a marriage, there will be around 6000.
      3. Somewhere on the horizon, maternal capital. 400000 + 100000 (gubernatorial)
      Something like this.

      I’ve read it all, so you’ll think where such blanches come from if both the Emirates and Saudi Arabia spend half of their oil on domestic needs. Oil production in the Persian Gulf falls.
