Military Review

The war in Syria and the dollar

61
Moscow’s diplomatic initiative regarding the transfer of the Syrian chemical weapons affected the suspension of plans for US aggression against Syria in a very positive way. At the same time, it is impossible not to realize that this diplomatic success provided peace for the Middle East and the whole world only for a time, because Washington did not abandon its plans for Syria.



At the moment, on one side of the scale lies public opinion, which is strongly opposed to US aggression. This can be attributed to: a) the position of the US population, more than 70% of which, according to recent sociological studies, does not approve of Barack Obama's calls for military action; b) world public opinion, which sees in the initiatives of Russia the prospect of overcoming the dangerous political deadlock and which is stunned by the American "games with matches" in the region, called the "powder keg" of the planet. We will not discount the official statement in support of the Russian initiatives of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

On the other side of the scale is the unabated desire of the US administration to start a war. However, in this way, America is waiting for obvious obstacles and "pitfalls". The recent chemical attack near Damascus was committed, as is now well known, not by the Syrian government army, but by its adversary. In other cases, chemical weapons were used by bandit groups at war in Syria (this is also indicated by the 100 report submitted by Russia to the UN on the Khan al-Assal chemical attack in northern Syria on March 19, and the May statement by the head of the UN commission to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Khan al Assal Syria's Carla Del Ponte on the use of chemical weapons by the rebels on the basis of sarin). That is, there is reason to fear that provocations may recur. The meaning of these provocations was and remains that they give the United States, France and other countries of the anti-Syrian coalition, which themselves possess huge stocks of chemical weapons, the opportunity to continue demanding unilateral disarmament from Damascus under the threat of inevitable attack and under the pretext of “fighting terrorism”.

However, in addition to chemical weapons, Syria has a number of other possibilities for deterring aggression.

One of these opportunities is the readiness of the special forces of Syria for operations in the United States, the result of which may exceed all expectations. According to the representative of the Ministry of Defense of Syria, in the United States are now both legally and illegally a few hundred employees of the Syrian special forces "Al-Waadat al-Qass." Combat groups of 3-7 people are equipped with everything necessary and have the task of conducting sabotage operations in the event of a strike by the United States on Syria. Among the targets intended for destruction are command and infrastructure facilities in densely populated states: railways, power plants and substations, hydraulic structures, oil and gas terminals, military facilities, including aviation and naval bases. According to the source, the decision was made by the Syrian leadership, based on the experience of the wars in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, where a purely defensive approach to repelling aggression doomed the attacked party to defeat in advance.

At the same time, the Syrian special forces, which have extensive experience in fighting in Israel, Lebanon and Syria itself, do not have to fight in the United States in order to cause significant damage to them. With the support of Iranian special forces, the effectiveness of sabotage operations can increase by several times - in scale, quantity, and potential military and economic damage for the American aggressor, whose economic interests are represented in Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, etc.

Saudi Arabia, which is another active instigator of the war, rightly fears the Shiite population’s revolt that has been ripening for a number of years, which is up to 15% of the kingdom’s population and is very pro-Iranian (plus the support of co-religionists in Iraq and Bahrain and having large communities in Lebanon). The main part of Saudi Shiites is concentrated in the eastern province of Al-Hasa, which is of particular strategic importance to Riyadh because of its location on the coast of the Persian Gulf and is the main reservoir of Saudi oil.

Egypt also acts as a factor in deterring aggression against Syria, where the conflict of the new authorities with the Islamists supported by Ankara continues to glow. The US aggression against Syria could at any moment blow up Egypt with a civil war, which would make the Suez Canal unsuitable for the passage of oil tankers. This in turn actualizes the problem of alternative oil delivery routes, given that the route around the Horn of Africa adds a couple of weeks to the delivery time, and the Russian Northern Sea Route, although it is the shortest waterway that can connect the main economic poles of the planet (Western Europe, North America and Southeast Asia), has not yet been prepared to solve a similar problem.

The economic problems that will arise in the event of a military strike against Syria are associated not only with the inevitable multiple increase in fuel prices, but also with the approach of the end of the dollar as the world reserve currency: in the first half of 2013, not only Iran and Australia refused to use the dollar in foreign trade calculations, but also five of the ten leading economies of the world, including China, Japan, India and Russia.

Moscow and Beijing, which occupy the number one position in the world, respectively, in the export and import of oil, are able to announce their decision to completely abandon the oil trade for dollars at any time. This is where the greatest danger lurks for the United States. Therefore, the desire to unleash a war against Syria looks like an attempt to delay the collapse of the dollar. It was not for nothing that the autumn aggravation of the situation around Syria coincided with the postponement of the debate on the threat of default by the United States from February to autumn of this year. They are not concerned with democracy in Syria in Washington, but with the issue of the sovereign debt ceiling, vital from the point of view of turning the United States itself into a “failed state” ...

      The question is different. More than 12000 militants and groups of British special forces in the form of instructors are surrounded in Hama. When the last jackal dies there, only one stronghold of terrorists will remain on the map of Syria, which is a winning varin for the army. By the time a new reason for the bombing appears, there will no longer be those who need these bombings. The United States can defiantly spend another couple of billion on cruise missiles, or even risk its pilots, but the whole nature of the war will not change such bombing.

      So what is the reason for all the fuss around Syria?
      Syria is a key energy transit route to Europe. It seems that a number of countries want to dominate the energy market through Syria.

      Putting chemical weapons under control is an order from Russia, namely V.V. Putin. So not only did they gain time, perhaps stop the invasion of democratic forces, but they also lowered the United States and their minions in the eyes of the whole world. Usa scared Assad? If it were so, he would have surrendered Syria already 3 years ago, but no, he is fighting. Easy prey will be your aircraft, and possibly ships. Oh, and how many of yours died in Afghanistan and Iraq? It's a pity the video where your packs are laid down is removed from YouTube. Think about why you need to force shit democracy to other countries, because your blue soldiers die there.

      Fool, I will tell you a terrible secret: for regular armies, sarin poses no threat at all. You may not know, but from him 100 years ago they invented such a thing as a gas mask. Now sarin is nothing more than a scarecrow for such mentally retarded Americans as you are (please do not be offended, here I have given the opinion of your senator-McCain).

        Let me disagree with you. Zarin (like herd, soman, and VX) are nerve agents. And they act not only through the respiratory system, but also through the skin and mucous membranes. And protection from them is still that hemorrhoid! They are very stable in the environment, and to degass them, you will roll with laughter, plus substances that are not at all useful are released during processing.
        And I want to add that when an army uses an agent, as a rule, several types of agent are used simultaneously in one recipe, or together (to enhance the effect), since some kind of "sarin mustard gas" will cause more harm to the enemy, and complicate protection and disinfection. Hence the doubt about the use of sarin by the Syrian army. The army would use "compote". But the militants used what they had ...

      Do not nails. The use of chemical weapons for Assad would mean turning Syria into a desert. It’s one thing to deter aggression from neighbors, and another thing is to confront NATO aggression. Syria's accession to the Convention simultaneously raises the question of the chemical weapons of Israel, which is outside the international control over all types of WMD.

      Yes, quite the opposite, the United States was scared of Assad’s success against the U.S.-funded Kanibal fighters. So they behave like a tabloid punks, arranging provocations, like I have a club in my pants and they need to be afraid of me. But the time when the United States believed it was peremptory gone. So they save their shabby face, albeit very clumsily, taking advantage of all sorts of fables, speculation, and staged videos with victims prepared in advance.

      Propaganda Great power! She very quickly makes a "herd" of adequately thinking people. Believe further your power and your media. If a country or a person has nowhere to retreat under the threat of destruction, he is ready to crush enemies with his bare hands. When there was a threat of complete destruction of the United States in the Cuban missile crisis, what were YOU doing at that moment? Don't judge people and countries by yourself.

      Our close-minded "friend", Assad was not afraid of anyone, he accepted the offer of Russia, and Putin offered to hand over the chemistry. a weapon to knock the ground out from under the feet of your masters, he deprived them of a reason to bomb. In fact, Assad has not lost anything, there is no sense in chemistry, only Obama can think of this infection at home, or Bush and McCain. He even won, now for free, for your (American) money this chemistry will be destroyed, you won't have to spend it yourself. Get yourself a brain, useful, you know, thing. lol

      But he doesn’t call him, just now there will be observers with weapons in the places of their storage, they will not be able to interfere with his use, this is so by the way, so the de facto army is not disarmed, but will only allow him to be watched. \
      And what about scaring :) Assad can no longer be scared, followed by the People and Moscow, nowhere to retreat.

    Amers do not need Syria, as such. They need World War 3 to, like in the last two wars, weld the dough, while the natives in the BV will mutuise each other. Therefore, as they say, not by washing, so by skating. Even if the situation in the BV is completely out of their control, it’s not a problem. If only the war would capture as many countries as possible. As the Americans themselves say: nothing personal, just a business. Therefore, the Americans are facing an elementary choice: either unleash the 3rd World War, or America the Polar Fox. Guess from three times what they will choose?

      Although this is not a thankful business, I’ll try to guess.
      a) If suicides - TMV! Doesn't seem like ...
      b) So that the dollar does not collapse and does not bury the global financial system in its current form, it is urgent to let off steam from the overheated empty paper capitalization of assets and debt obligations ... Yes, ah, Problem! Here Jewish brains for gesheft sharpened are needed, I - pass!
      c) move the crisis closer to the borders of competitors on the other hand - Southeast Asia, Asia-Pacific, at least the same DPRK! But what, what is not the solution? And certainly Russia will not be up to the ATS, if Ukraine flames! So there are prospects in this direction!
      Well, so, openly, with confusion in NATO and negative public opinion, and with the solidarity opposition of the Russian Federation, China and Iran, to fight against Syria - this must be completely survived from the mind! Because this leads to option "A".
      So it turns out that we will have to look for a new pretext elsewhere in order to bomb a little, "friendly" another state that is not capable of hitting the Hamburg bill. It seems to me somehow so, although I may be wrong. IMHO.

      That's it. And a little digression into history. Already what the special services of Nazi Germany and Japan were strong, but I did not hear about any of their successful operations in the United States during the Second World War. So what about the confrontation between the special services of Syria and the USA is just ridiculous. It will just be the beating of infants, alas.

        I think they were simply hushed up, then and now, because it is so beneficial to the Americans.
        Second, do not forget that some people read super-reliable correspondence through Enigma, and some too believed in its invulnerability.
        Yes, and actually, why do some operations at the risk of hard-abandoned people to spoil a couple of ships when they were built throughout the country by hundreds!?
        So the scouts sat and watched what the Americans were doing, what stocks were there, who needed them.
        This is not the East Front where there were actions, but there were tens of thousands of saboteurs, and a large number of reptiles will sooner or later give results.
        To summarize, I can only note the following, there were practically no actions on the territory of America from saboteurs of Germany and Japan, the former watched, and the latter sat in camps like most of the luxurious-eyed citizens of America.
        Something like that.

        As for the beating now, alas, they will not be able to isolate a third of the population this time, and secondly, now the shares do not have a national color, but are ideologically colored, here the skin color does not matter, and it is very difficult to eliminate such a threat.
        Let me give you an example of the murder of Indira Gandhi, she was killed by her own guard for several years (I don’t remember exactly) who worked for her, and he knew very well that his partner would shoot him, which actually happened.
        This is what a sabotage war looks like today, try to protect it!
        Yesterday I watched the film "Dead Man Down" where the most terrible enemy was always behind and waiting.
        A roughly similar scenario was in the TV series "Brigade"

          In my opinion (_lub_giy), in the new world it is not necessary to send saboteurs (trained in their own country) to someone, it is enough to hire one-time "wild swans" for grandmothers, through a front organization. Introduce yourself to them as the "Front for the Liberation of Papua New Guinea from the dominance of the Colorado potato beetle", set a task (for example, a tire manufacturing plant in the USA), pay money and that's it. And you do not need to scatter on your own So in my opinion it is beneficial.

            So only his own, only understanding the essence of the task, and as one hero of the film said: - he believes that he is right, this is his strength, and it will be difficult to stop him.
            And think about why you use the word - BENEFIT, a normal person measures the world in other categories, you never noticed - that American news first speaks about material damage and only then about people, and we began to repeat after them :).

    and the Russian Northern Sea Route, although it is the shortest waterway capable of connecting the main economic poles of the planet (Western Europe, North America and Southeast Asia), has not yet been prepared to solve such a problem.

                Well, I'm not Ukrainian - I'm from Ukraine :) Even most of my personally familiar Russians do not feel this :) I would even say that is all. I agree that the sample is small, but you would have to get the ones you described :) there are those who are dissatisfied with politics, but they cannot clearly explain what exactly those who are dissatisfied with can’t. And from an economic point of view, everything seems to be fine.

                  The fact of the matter is that the key word is LIKE. Russia with its many problems now looks like a cancer patient: he seems to be living as usual, but the 4th stage is on its way. And the government, instead of cutting out "tumors", smears them with green stuff. Maybe the analogy is not the best one, but personally I see it that way.

                    This word is not key here :) I can’t say for 100% that they have all got hurt economically. Like you that everything is bad :)
                    As for oncology - well, you know that everyone has the same result :) This is a digression. In general, operations in oncology very often lead to death earlier than if they left everything as it is. So, in my opinion, "treatment with brilliant green" is more appropriate :) Well, if you are a Stalinist, then I agree that the actions of the current government will not suit you. If a liberal, then the statements are more than strange :)

                      This is our main problem, that we like to glue labels of "Stalinists", "liberals", etc. Personally, I do not belong to either one or the other, but I just love my country and I want it to live and prosper, so that my children and grandchildren have a happy future. Personally, at the moment, I have everything (materially) to feel happy. The problem is different: as a person who knows history and has certain reliable information about the internal situation in Russia, I understand that Russia-2013 = Russia-1914 with everything that follows, as they say. Most of my fellow citizens have the psychology of pigs in a fence: "The owner gives food, it's warm in the barn, it doesn't drip from the ceiling, well, hurt yourself!" Only the trouble is: the "pig" does not suspect that the cutting knives have already been sharpened and the refrigerators are on.

    There was an article that supposedly the Chinese were ready to give loot to our Novotek for the construction of LNG on the Yamal Peninsula. But you just need to look at the map and understand that this is an adventure.

    Good afternoon. Are you aware that Russia provided humanitarian aid to Egypt with grain - and they said that nobody ever provided humanitarian aid with grain, perhaps because of this they contain a bit of radical Islamists on their territory, not letting them into Syria. Otherwise, they are from there would be blown away, as from Turkey with Jordan.

    The war in Syria will raise the price of oil (and this is beneficial to Russia). The war in Syria will raise the whole East, which will rush into the Eurozone (this is beneficial to Russia). The war on the balance of goods between the United States and Europe will smoothly lead to the loneliness of the United States.

      I don’t think that war will seriously change anything. Well, the Suez will close, the Saudis and Qatar will start more hydrocarbons to China and Southeast Asia. Ours, Algeria, Venezuela and the Norwegians, in turn, in that direction of supply will reduce and occupy the volumes of the Persian monarchies in Europe. The economic world will quickly adapt, as with the war in Libya.

    And worst of all, Russia, as always, before the fateful moments of history, is not completely ready for war! Then historians will write: the rearmament program was to be completed only by 2020 ..... I want to believe that this phrase will be in the context of why Russia did not enter the war.

    And so let's take an objective look at the situation in Syria. What is the US profitable for Saudi Arabia, Europe, etc. 1. If Syria falls, Qatar will start building a gas pipeline to Europe and once this gas pipeline is built, Qatar will start selling liquefied gas at a low price, which will cause a serious blow to the gas market of RUSSIA. 2.After the fall of Syria, RUSSIA will lose the only base for replenishing food and water in the Eastern Mediterranean-Tartus.And without Tartus it is impossible to create a full-fledged Mediterranean squadron, which in turn weakens the positions of RUSSIA and strengthens the position of NATO. 3. Already, oil prices have risen, and price increases may continue. It seems to be beneficial to RUSSIA, but in fact it is beneficial to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. This will lead to the creation of favorable conditions for investment in oil refining and oil production services of such countries as the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, as these countries will increase export of this item. And this weakens the position of RUSSIA in the oil market. 4.After the fall of Syria, the militants will flood not only into Iran, but through Turkey they will pass first to the Caucasus and then to the North Caucasus, which in turn will destabilize the entire Caucasus region.

      letting the militants into Syria does not mean that they will be allowed back. The militants will not climb into Iran. It is enough that a Wahhabi man and him are hanging on a truck crane in Iran. So they will not come to Azerbaijan. All Azerbaijanis who fight on the side of the militants are already waiting for a good term. and if, after concluding a peace all the same, Turkey will let them through, then a real corridor to Russia through Georgia. There will come from where it will leak, and Georgians will not interfere. The principle will be the enemy of my enemy

        They will deal with Iran differently. Considering that there are terrorist organizations operating in Iran that are funded by the United States, I think these militants will go there. These militants are on the border with Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, and Turkey will deal with Iran under the Soviet scenario. .THOSE. they will begin ethnic strife between the Iranians, Kurds, and also on a religious basis between the Sunnis and Shiites. And if they manage to split the army, then expect a civil war. You should also take into account the economic situation of Iran, but it’s not the best. Add all this together and imagine what happens, some truck cranes will not be enough. This is not an exact scenario. But you have to consider.

Qatar, like Saudia, does not want Iraq and Iran to have their pipes through Syria. In 2011, Iran signed an agreement with Syria to lay a gas pipeline in the Mediterranean. After that, the Syrian Sunnis were harshly and stormy. Where the ears grow from is easy to guess.
      Iraq through the territory of Syria has two pipelines. Of course, the Saudis would like to take control of them through their Syrian puppets.

      ...... Qatar will start selling liquefied gas on the cheap .....

      Liquefied gas is not pumped through pipes. There is just gas under high pressure. This is me to increase the level of knowledge in this aspect.

    All the best know-how from all countries is kept in Israel.


    The only real know-how there is how to shoe a goy, no matter what nation he is. Even their own shoes are systematic. An example is simply an enchanting dough cut called "Iron Dome" for knocking down water pipes with gold ingots. For the transfer of such know-how to Israel, an extraordinary title should be awarded

    It’s very possible to collapse the dollar, but only in our economy it will come to our side

    if on a simple, so to speak theoretically:
    the one who has the resources and plants that make products out of resources is the winner.
    and the fact that the bank of New York lives due to the fact that oil is sold for bucks, and any payments will somehow go through this bank, so it turns out we feed it, along with the rest of the world, because, at least, a commission is paid from each payment. and payments, countless, and if you abandon the dollar, America, Kirdyk (s)
    in other words, you need to eat from your plate, and not steal from the neighbors,
    they consume more than they produce. and the difference is compensated by green paper!
    ...
    as our boss said before, when we beg for an increase in salaries, you need to spend less!

    The economic problems that arise in the event of a military strike against Syria are associated not only with the inevitable multiple increase in fuel prices, but also with the approach of the end of the dollar as a world reserve currency: in the first half of 2013, not only did they refuse to use the dollar in foreign trade calculations Iran and Australia, but also five of the ten leading economies of the world, including China, Japan, India and Russia.

    There is an objective law of economics binding on everyone:
    Money should be printed exactly as much as all the goods produced in the country.
    Temporary limited emission is possible only with investments in real production.
    In USA, with their huge external and internal debt and a huge decline in production, the price of a dollar is less than the cost of paper, ink and the cost of printing it.
    The dollar is held only due to the fact that there are countries other than the USA that accept the dollar for money and ensure its commodity content.
    Refusal of the dollar in interstate settlements will be a temporary inconvenience for many countries, and for USA it will be a disaster.
