Military Review

Israel and Saudi Arabia are dragging the United States into war

27

Most analysts agree - a blow to Syria will be dealt. Disagreements arise only on the timing and scope of the forthcoming hostilities.


Note that in the Middle East solitaire is not as simple as it seems at first glance. On the one hand, the hype about the use of chemical weapons in Syria was raised by the United States, and this happened not a month, and not two years ago. President Barack Obama’s famous “red lines” became a household name (in 2012, he called the use of chemical weapons in Syria, the "red line, the transition through which everything will change"). Yes, and 21 August, the noise about the possible use of chemical weapons near Damascus at the request of Tel Aviv was raised in Washington. But if you look at the problem a little wider, it becomes clear that it was possible to strike the Arab Republic in March, after applying sarin to Aleppo - the reason was then much more obvious.

But Barack Obama was in no hurry to make a decision on the use of military force. And this time, the American president is making all possible efforts to postpone a strike against Syria. It seems that the United States, which positions itself as the only superpower, in the Syrian issue, acts as extras in the big game of Israel and Saudi Arabia.

It is precisely to these two countries that the resumption of contacts between the United States and Iran, which emerged after the new president took power in Tehran, is unprofitable. The only way to thwart the emerging normalization is to draw the United States and Iran into an armed confrontation in Syria, even if in absentia. After all, everyone understands that strikes on Damascus will force Tehran to get involved in the conflict, especially since the soldiers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps have long and very successfully destroyed the militants of the Free Syrian Army.

Within the political elite of the United States, there is a very strong “party of war” which, in addition to the military-industrial complex lobby, includes “right-wing” congressmen and ministers. Moreover, this party is not free. And if everything is clear with defense lobbyists, other politicians can receive remuneration from other sources, including the monarchies of the Middle East. After all, what is the several million dollars spent on "pushing" American leaders to make the necessary decisions in comparison with the superprofits from the growth of oil prices. When it came to the possibility of a military operation in Syria, the barrel of “black gold” went up by almost a quarter. In the event of war, its price will reach the 150 by the most optimistic estimates, and by the pessimistic one - to the $ 200.

The result is that the President of the United States, who, moreover, is the Nobel Peace Prize winner, serves the interests of the oil kings of Saudi Arabia.

An analysis of recent events shows that the Saudis "interested" not only American politicians. After all, only big money can force the UK government to go against the will of its voters (more than 50% of British people oppose intervention in the Syrian conflict). Nevertheless, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, seeing the unwillingness of Barack Obama to start a war, decided to take the initiative in his hands and introduced to the UN Security Council a resolution on Syria, in effect legalizing the attacks on Damascus.

For all that, without the support of the United States, Great Britain, even with the support of France and Turkey, will not dare to start a war in the Middle East. Therefore, peace in the region is now in the hands of Barack Obama. And I want to believe that the head of the White House will make the right choice, which can be formulated very simply - either return the Nobel Prize, or get the second one.

      It is not Obama who decides the question of war or peace; he is a puppet. And if the "puppeteers" decide to start a war, then any evidence that Syria did not use a chemical. weapons will be useless.

          Israel and Saudi Arabia are dragging the United States into war

          If the amers hit Syria, then Syria, in response to the list of planned goals, we need to add the sponsors of the war, S. Arabia and Qatar. It is also necessary to crush these hornet’s nests, they sponsor wars in the Caucasus and terrorists around the world.

    what very difficult situation.

    I think that if, God forbid, the mess begins, then Iran will add ..


    Iran is now not at all profitable to fight the West. The economic situation is very difficult. The only thing Iran can do is to carry out several high-profile operations with the hands of Hezbollah. Which will also lead to the defeat of Hezbollah. Only 100% is clear. Asad’s withdrawal means the withdrawal of Russia and the pro-Iranian forces from the region. .
    everything is designed for it

      I believe that all the escalation of tension in the region is connected with the goal of involving Iran in the hostilities - it is the last bastion of orthodox Islam. In general, an exciting party unfolded in the Islamic world. After the gambit at the beginning (a series of revolutions), it seemed that a new Islamic caliphate was emerging, but now we see a different picture - the Islamic world is mired in civil strife and civil wars, economies are collapsing, Akbar is no longer up to terrorist attacks outside of Mohammedanism. The Saudis will be mated at the end of the game. And that's it, finita la comedy. Obedient kings will be placed in power (Qatar, by the way, is not a player at all, but an obedient king) and proud akbar will turn into obedient blacks without realizing it.

    Well, I already commented on a similar situation around Syria and its resources. I repeat, everyone invested a lot of money in this war and they must pay off otherwise the budgets of our "partners" will be a huge gap. The only way to bleed the armies of Syria and Iran. And then divide and get your bold piece. Saudi Arabia fears that its monopoly on oil exports and its price regulation will be violated. Israel is afraid, for its own skin, in the future, God forbid, the stronger Syria and Iran, it is imperative that this SKIN be LEARNED, the Arabs are vindictive, will remember all their sins. And we RUSSIA completely loss control of oil prices. And then the economic noose will begin to work already for RUSSIA. I said everything ... hi

      We never controlled them; the US dictates oil prices. This is elementary. In the presence of competition, the main buyer sets the price and they buy 60% of all oil, if it were not for the Americans with their huge oil consumption, the price would be at least 2 times cheaper. For example, statistics came out that oil reserves in the United States fell by 20%. And within 5 minutes, prices soar, because everyone expects the next purchase of US oil.

    I absolutely agree with your arguments, but so far we have nowhere to get such huge revenues as from the sale of oil and gas, and as you know, these fucking oil currencies are also needed for the development of other sectors of the economy.
    And since our private business does not very well move to develop production in Russia, but all the developments in China due to cheap labor. In the future, I think so, we need to wait for the targeted federal program on this matter ... and again, where are the subsidies from? Right from our far from rubber budget.
    And relying on the good faith of our private capital is tantamount to suicide, they have the HOMELAND where the Bum is warm. They had already come to power at the time, clanged everything, instructed the banks to divide the pipes, and forgot about the real sector of the economy.

      oil currency settles in the pockets of the oligarchs. For the money that was received from the sale of resources, Russia could long ago not only develop other sectors, but would actually become the second economy in the world

    Israel is the only country in the world where the US strike on Syria is supported not only by the government but also by the population. Israelis for blow to Syria and for Netanyahu. This is a consequence of both the active state propaganda of the Israeli regime and the hope for expansion of "living space" (historical parallels suggest themselves, right?) due to the territory of the Golan Heights illegally annexed by Israel. What is the importance of this territory for Israel? Firstly, favorable geographical and climatic living conditions. This is a flat mountain plateau - the middle mountains, with very fertile soil rich in water sources, the temperate climate is not very hot in the summer and mild, cool winters.From the Golan Heights, up to a third of the water consumed in Israel is supplied.. Due to the uncertain actual status of this territory, the Israelis cannot carry out long-term projects here, tourism and winemaking are developed.
    The Syrian population before the capture of the Golan was 116 thousand people. Today, about 40 thousand live there. people if you believe EEI link. Of these, half are Syrian Druze and half are settlers of Jewish kibbutzim and moshavim.
    Zionists believe that about a million Jews can be settled here, and in the most favorable conditions. Moreover, here, unlike the Negev desert (there is a program for settling or rather developing the desert), you can attract wealthy immigrants from the countries of the "golden billion". In their opinion, this will correct the unfavorable demographic balance in northern Israel, where there are almost 2 million Arabs-Israelis. What kind of Jewish state is it where the Jews themselves do not have a majority? Then the whole ideology of Zionism collapses, as an Israel-state where Jews are a nation-forming nation.
    In November, the 1981 Israel officially annexed the Golan Heights, extending its jurisdiction to them. However, the world did not recognize the annexation. UN Security Council resolution 497 of December 17, 1981 proclaims this area as part of the Syrian occupied territories. In 2008, the annexation was also condemned by the UN General Assembly.

      Therefore, Israel believes that the risk of Islamists coming to power in Syria is much less than the gain from the possibility to officially get this territory. Moreover, the scenario for the partition of Syria was conceived according to the Yugoslav model with the formation of pseudo-state entities like the Albanian Kosovo or Al Qaedistan that will not be recognized by the world community, then due to the collapse of Syria there will already be legal grounds for the formation of the puppet republic of the Golan Druze, which of course will go under the wing of Israel than the Islamists (which will cut them out right away).
      «the civil war (in Syria) provides a strategic opportunity "to create in its place a state that does not need to" pay the territorial price ". This can be either a friendly pro-Western state, or a regime with an “intensified jihadist presence”, the policy with respect to which can be reduced to preventing the threat from developing from its “local to strategic level”.

      Major General Amos Yadlin Director, Israel Institute of National Security
      Periodicals | Seal US Attack on Syria: Implications for Israel INSS Insight No. 460, September 1, 2013 Yadlin, Amos and Golov, Avner
      Well, from the Mujahideen, Israel is fenced off by minefields and a wall Israeli military mines Syrian border и Israel expands new fence
      In fact, Israel will receive a double win, the regular Syrian army will disappear, the Lebanese Hezbollah will weaken, and the "living space" for the next aliyah will be expanded.
      It turns out Americans and al Qaeda scream exclusively for Israel because of the Golan Heights
      So, the popular American radio host, publicist and commentator Michael Savage (Michael Alan Weiner), claims
      “Now we are participating for the sake of Israel in the second act of drama. For Israel, we have removed Saddam Hussein from power, now Israel wants to get rid of Assad. Who is next?"

      Further he says that always supported by the Israeli people but does not support its current government
      American commentator opposed Israel
      So Obama essentially acts according to the plan of David Goldman (President of Macrostrategy)
      the goal of the war should not be a draw, but a “Yugoslav version” with the division of Syria into three states: Alavite along the coast; Sunni protectorate in the center and Kurdish entity in the northeast.

      link
      So it turns out the chain-Al-Qaeda-CIA project-Zionist Israel. All passengers are in the same boat.

        That's how much I read on this topic, all the time I learn something new. There are so many factors in this situation, no matter where you look, there are interested parties everywhere. And these interests are very different, from money, territory, oil to religion. And a bunch of unknowns in this equation - SYRIA. I think Assad won’t get out of the war, we must hurriedly prepare for it as much as possible to delay, accumulate resources, and then fight back to the last. And I think that he will stand if we help him. Yes, and we must pull ourselves up, strengthen the spirit and pump muscles. The weak now have no prospects, no matter how much we would like peace, but we must prepare for war.

          95% of people in Russia do not think about something that you write ... And out of 5% of those who think, another 95% only think ...
          for example, I do not know a single person who would start a conversation generally higher than the subplinth of everyday life with those to which current affairs relate. Everyone lives in selfish and simple interests - like animals in a bad sense of the word and consumers. By "everything" is meant the majority. And they will come to kill - and then they will not scratch themselves. Little evidence in life ?! Around there is a "mess", often ending tragically. And at least henna ... Yes, I remember that there was a case when a Petersburger went and killed an airport dispatcher, because of which his family died. And the rest just live on. Bombed Yugoslavia-live on. Then Iraq, Libya, now Syria. And the whole world lives on. And in Russia all the people of the country will never come together and simply will not cry together: USA - mu.da.ki! This example is ridiculous, but it clearly shows the lack of unity in people and the ability to take the slightest action.

      Israel needs one thing. Asad’s care. Then with those who come to its place, conclude a world exchange of territories for peace. This has worked with Egypt and is still in force. And there will be no force in the region that will be against the existence of Israel, except for Hamas. .
      and in this situation, the Palestinians will sooner or later make the same decision.

        Why did everything agree on Israel ?! Are Saudis and Qatar acting for Israeli interests? And Turkey, and all other countries, and all the militants ?! You may have correctly said, but in reality everyone has their own and common interests. I think the main thing is to cut off China from the Middle East’s hydrocarbons, strike Russia’s interests in the same part by organizing deliveries through Syria to Europe. Create a radical "Greater Middle East" and go to Russia, as well as China, through the South Caucasus and Central Asia. And the Arabs themselves, Turks, etc. - each dream of their Caliphate. And the interests of Israel are smaller ...

    I'm not an Israeli, but I’ll try ...
    Citizens are dear, yes there is no such country as Syria - now it’s just an appendage of Iran.
    Hezbollah too. One must be realistic. And to Israel this war in "Syria" is mono-scriptural.
    But what I agree with is in the case of the fall of Assad (i.e. Iran) in Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc.
    of course pull their oil pipes to Europe. And it will be very ugly, including and for Russia.
