“The reason for the future aggression against Syria is not at all in chemical weapons, this is only a reason”

63

Moscow’s proposal to take under control chemical weapon Syria has dramatically changed the situation around the conflict in this country. More recently, a foreign invasion of Syria seemed inevitable, but now the military operation is at least postponed. Analysts say the success of Russian diplomacy, which in difficult conditions has found a delicate move, which deprives the United States of reason for attacking Syria. However, the danger of the war of the Western coalition with official Damascus has not been eliminated.


Andrey Parshev, the author of the book Why America Comes, commented on KM.RU for the geopolitical layout in this region.

Damascus receives only a postponement from the United States, but not “forgiveness”

The Russian proposal for chemical weapons and the immediate positive reaction to it by the Syrian government clearly confused the maps of the United States. The whole ideology of the invasion of the west side was based on the theme of chemical weapons, but the Americans themselves point out that the ban on such weapons exists in military international law and does not concern internal conflicts. Indeed, the situation in the West was not quite comfortable: after all, it was a war of the Libyan type, but it can be assumed that the cause of future aggression was not chemical weapons. This is just a reason!

Despite the delay and maneuvers, the Syrian government can still be accused of concealing stocks of these weapons, of insincerity, etc. They may well demand responsibility for “previously committed crimes”. Recall the case of Gaddafi, when he agreed to pay a ransom for Libyan prisoners accused of bombing a Lockerbie plane. In the West, they said then that Gaddafi’s consent is a recognition of his responsibility for this terrorist act. The same thing can now be said about official Damascus: the same proven technology.

There is a good expression - “by hook or by crook,” so I think that Damascus receives only a reprieve, but not “forgiveness”. At the same time, Russian diplomacy showed a good level. Obama was substituted, and we have opportunities for such moves.

Nobel Peace Prize man receives for the conduct of two wars and also begins the third

As for the Syrian operation, Obama’s support within the United States is by no means absolute. Oddly enough, but in this case, the opponents of the operation are the American right-wing conservatives, in particular, the Republicans. The governor of Alaska and in the last election, the Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said that the situation looks idiotic and it turns out that the United States is going to bomb Syria because Syria is bombing Syria.

In order to try to give a forecast of the development of the situation, I use the adage “a jug has gotten into the water to walk, there he has to fold his head” It seems to me that the Americans will not stop, and they have a program to this effect. The situation was in the spirit of the dystopia of Orwell: the Nobel Peace Prize man receives for waging two wars and begins a third war. This phantasmagoria is worthy of Kafka’s pen, but we live in such a world ... Tragedy stories in that even the strangest, delusional events have a rationale, although not an excuse.

    Naturally, this is an occasion. No one will believe that the whole fuss has flared up due to chemical weapons. The experience of Iraq, Libya and others proves this.

    Naturally, chemical weapons in Syria are not the main reason for bombing the Assad army - if you look at the list of targets that you intend to bomb - these are the headquarters, command posts, soldiers' barracks, that is, all that can not be pulled to chemical weapons.

    Therefore, OBAMA for me is a Nobel liar or a Nobel war hawk, hehe hell, how everything turned upside down.
    The man who received the Nobel Peace Prize unleashes a new war as if nothing had happened.

    He set the article as a plus. The beautiful and (finally!) Operational work of Russian diplomacy is not
    is subject to doubt. But the question arises: what guarantees of non-aggression against Syria will the West give after
    whether the Syrians fulfill the conditions set? And will they give them at all? Syria remains essentially
    defenseless against the threat of intervention from the West and Israel. And the reason? Well, as they say,
    there would be an article, but there is a person (country)!

      None. One guarantee: the Foreign Ministry of the following attacks to reflect a little bit easier. West-Once lied! This is a step. Ours won, having risen one step. For the first time! There are many more steps. And the road will be overcome

    Personally, I did not believe that stapling would stop. Something is "wrong" in the kingdom !!! I don’t think that the problems are financial, they were scared of losses (they would not have been), they were scared of Russia, one boat from China ...
    And the hangers-on would not have disappeared, press the little white house harder ...
    Let’s take a look, the reasons for the reverse will not be drawn immediately.
    therefore, I think that Damascus receives only a reprieve, but not "forgiveness."
    And here with the author is not prompted. The fact that no one is forgiven (no one has done wrong yet) is obvious, but this delay = loss.
    I do not think that Russia will not take advantage of the respite and will not help Syria in debugging its air defense.

    What strikes me is something else: the rising "hat-tidying" hysteria about the "great and wise" "guarantor" who stopped the attack on Syria. Are people really so stupid that they took a small respite for victory? Or do people really really want to believe in fairy tales? The history of the last at least three centuries proves that the Anglo-Saxons are the most intelligent, scary and treacherous adversary. Which always achieves its goal and calculates the situation for many moves forward. I do not urge to raise the legs up or look for a rope with soap. But the “victorious fanfares” of the last week resemble the good old truth; “If you woke up in the morning and found four eggs, don’t rush to rejoice: maybe someone has already“ settled down ”from behind!” laughing

      Do not make people laugh with lies and stupidities.
      Dumb, cowardly arrogant Saxons were beaten by everyone, everywhere and always.
      The houses on the island were beaten by the Romans, Germans, French, Norwegians, Danes, Swedes, Scots, Irish.
      As soon as they leaned out on the mainland, they got the full program and cleaned the beaten ones home. They were kicked out of all Asian, American and African colonies.
      In Kamchatka, their fleet and marine corps were defeated by an ordinary lieutenant with a militia and a pair of field guns. They beat them in the Crimea (1856), in Murmansk and Arkhangelsk (1918).
      Now they are churning out on their island, allowing gay parades, same-sex marriage, open selling and marijuana consumption.

          You exaggerate the role of the arrogant Saxons in the history of mankind, with their filing, by the way, through publications in corrupt media.
          All these fools about the omnipotence of the arrogant Saxons and the "dance to the tune" of their own cooking for gullible rotozei.
          The Soviet Union was not killed by the arrogant Saxons, it was killed by the burning partocrats, shadow workers and the greedy, stupid gobbling herd, who wanted to add 100 varieties of sausages, jeans, smelly imported tins on wheels and other elements of a sweet life to the usual Soviet social security.
          And life under capitalism was not so sweet for most stolbasofilov, even in the presence of the colossal rich legacy of the USSR.

            About the fact that the CPSU, the KGB and the Komsomol banged the USSR - I agree.

            As for the rest:
            What is worse for an ordinary person to be able to choose from 10 varieties of sausages, rather than 1-2, and not to defend them for 2 hours in a queue after work?

            What is worse for an ordinary person to ride in a normal car, and not in a bucket of nuts from AvtoZAZ?

            What is worse for an ordinary person if he is dressed humanly and not in a dull sack-shaped soviet consumer goods?

            Why do komunyaks consider normal human life a bourgeois luxury?

              Excuse me, you have complete lies.
              The CPSU and the Komsomol did not bang the USSR, these are organizations consisting of millions of people and the people in them, after the reign of Khrushchev-Brezhnev, were very different. It’s the same as blaming all UN countries for Western aggression. The KGB has nothing to do with it, he did not have political power.
              In the USSR, sausage was divided by the methods of cooking boiled, smoked, etc. and the composition of veal, pork, beef, liver, blood, meat, so there were few varieties, these are only varieties of surrogates and counterfeits can be invented indefinitely. Queues in the USSR appeared for the first time after the war in perestroika, it was a deliberate organized provocation.
              Soviet cars before perestroika were no worse than Western ones, until their models and equipment of car factories became obsolete due to the cessation of investments in modernization.
              Soviet consumer goods in all respects surpassed the Western "fashionable" smelly synthetic rags. Soviet fabrics were natural, paints bright and resistant.
              When and where was normal life under capitalism? Read the western press.

              In addition to Russia and the United States, there are another 196 sovereign states in the world. Most of them are outside the sphere of influence of Russia and the United States.
              The influence of the United States, among those who enter the spheres, is very fragile and rests on the soap bubble of dollar emissions.

              The generation of the 50-60s was not unambiguous, as any other generation, there were filthy "dissidents" among us who picked up the unwelcome gum for foreigners, but there were also those who fought over the river and in local conflicts around the planet for the interests of the USSR and humanity.
              We fought in the jungle and in the sands
              On the rocks, in the oceans, in the sky,
              "Tips" in different languages,
              Foreign armies led to victory.

              Aggressors we cooled the ardor
              We defended the world on the planet
              The enemy, as expected, did not love us,
              But the "friends" often betrayed.

              Death followed behind us
              Sometimes a minute decided fate
              We managed to survive in the heat,
              And land on scraps of parachute.

              We defended working people
              We fought for foreign countries
              Burned in tanks, fell from bullets,
              Oceans swallowed us without a trace.

              And eternal memory to those who have not survived,
              Who the world kept from nuclear strikes,
              Who extinguished with the blood of his heart
              The fire of local wars, like fires.

              Neither fame nor riches gained
              They went to battle for their homeland, and not for a fee,
              Little has survived on Earth,
              And the motherland does not know us guys.

              We were betrayed in their home country,
              Enemies are blackened for the sake of enemies
              And people believe dirty slander
              After all, the truth is hidden from people.

              The scoundrels will not reach the dead
              In vain do the scoundrels trash their memory,
              Remained forever their souls are pure,
              But the surviving joys do not know.

              To those who betray us contempt and shame
              Damn the reptile with a spotty stupidity,
              And the second bastard and the drunkard and the thief,
              Sold the motherland with great skill.

      They came from a practical point of view: they secured people the opportunity to have a normal life, and did not feed the whole way with slogans and red flags.

      P.S. As for the "strong union" - it is possible for you only with SevKorey, which will suck resources and loot from you.
      With China and Belarus, everything will be only situational.

        Well, as if America is now in terms of an alliance for NATO, not everything is in order. Which of the allies supported the United States in throwing axes in Syria ?! American rulers have discredited themselves quite seriously with their constant wars in the Middle East and Africa. And this, with the help of independent media, is brought to the citizens of NATO countries. And those already influence parliament. As an example, Germany and the UK.

    Of course, just an excuse!
    Here they see the perspicacious -

    The delivery of chemical weapons is an obvious trap for the Syrians and Russians.
    options for further action:
    1) for 2 months they’ll surrender most of the war - for Israel, the threat of WMD blow is removed and it can strike, according to its own ideas, with or without cause - the Air Force, the Navy from submarines - against the Russian C300, Yakhont ... Assad has no threatening ace in the form of chemical weapons .
    Another 2 of the month - a new aggravation and isolation of the territory for the Alawites and the evacuation of Christians in the EU. Partisan warfare of warlords in Kosovo.
    Worst Options:
    2) Assad assumes obligations to the UN ... and will not be able to fulfill them (they will) - there will be threats of the use of force, including the unmanned zone and so on. Now he has no obligations.

    3) While the Russians are not involved in the conflict. They will check the delivery of chemical weapons - there will be blue helmets from the Russian Federation or troops of anyone according to the UN special mandate in Syria, any provocation and 100% involvement of the Russian Federation or Turkey and then NATO. The Israel-US military assistance agreement is a direct US invasion, Iran’s Shiites are against Arab Sunnis - UN devaluation and full-scale war. The battle of the end, the evacuation of Israel to the United States and the EU, the freezing of the Leviathan deposits in the Middle East. The riots in Saudi Arabia and Qatar - the purchase of weapons from the United States on the last, private army to protect the deposits. Blocking the oil flow - a significant increase in oil prices, blocking the Suez Canal - strangling Europe, increasing the competitiveness of shale oil and gas in the USA. Overflow of comraniums and resources in the USA from Europe.

    And all this is business, nothing personal (s).
    And you are all inshallah, inshallah ...

    Maybe the Americans themselves are not to blame for anything? Maybe it is really only their “democratic" government that wants to level the innocent people to the ground? But damn it all the same how you want to hear in place
    At the same time, Russian diplomacy showed a good level.

    Russia did what it could, postponed any aggression for a year, because while UN inspectors and observers work, there will be no operation. During this period, Assad needs to be helped to get rid of the opposition and prepare for a possible US and Israeli offensive, and it will be. The money issue should not be a question here, since Syria is now like a sticky tape for Islamist flies of all stripes, the more they are killed there, the fewer there will be in our Caucasus, and Putin is 100% sure that he understands this.

    The reason for the future aggression against Syria is of course gas, but not sarin, but the most ordinary, natural one. Well, oil, of course. Potential trillions of dollars of energy revenue flowing through Syria could be a motivating factor in the current Syrian crisis for the United States, Russia, Turkey and the Arab states. Syria is a key energy transit route to Europe. It seems that a number of countries want to dominate the energy market through Syria. In 2011, Syria announced that it had discovered a promising gas field in the city of Homs, where later the most violent clashes occurred between the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the rebels. Oil Resource Minister Sufyan Alawi told SANA the state-owned news agency that the first wells "were in Homs and produced 400 cubic meters per day." In addition to the prospects for its own gas, Syria is also one of the most strategically important places for gas pipelines to Europe. ”Qatar, along with Iran, which has the world's largest gas reserves, proposed a gas pipeline from the Persian Gulf to Turkey, which would cross Syria to the Mediterranean Sea, and through which gas would go to Europe. However, in 2009, Assad refused to accept the plan, instead preferring deals with Russia and Iran. Syria is the site of the proposed creation of an extensive underground gas pipeline, which, once completed, could dramatically undermine the strategic energy power of the US ally, Qatar, as well as cut Turkey off the gas pipeline. Called the Islamic Gas Pipeline, the project could benefit Russia and Iran to the detriment of Western energy interests. A key part of the Islamic pipeline is concentrated in Syrian ports, from where gas will be exported directly to Europe from the Eastern Mediterranean. The Islamic pipeline is seen as a serious threat to Turkey, which has long wanted to become the main bridge for natural gas and oil between East and West. If Assad could be overthrown, Turkey and Qatar would want Nabucco to go through Syria. Russia, the main patron of the Assad regime, is the only remaining international partner over the past year that still helps to develop Syrian oil and gas resources. The Congressional Research Service published a report according to which in April Syria was still discussing geological engineering studies of the seabed with Russia and China, but very few details are known. According to one of the resources of the Syrian government, obtained in 2010, the country also possesses oil shale resources, with an estimated amount of reserves varying from fifty billion tons. In a recent interview, Assad said: “From a purely economic point of view, there are several agreements between Syria and Russia regarding certain goods and materials. As for the loan provided by Russia, it should be considered as beneficial for both parties; for Russia, these are opportunities to enter new markets of the main sectors of national industry and state-owned companies. ” In a March speech to Congress, US chief of national intelligence James Clapper said that Assad’s Russian support includes the sale of Syrian oil to world markets.
    In my opinion everything is said, nowhere is clearer!

But for now, these are only threats, because in the Turkish Mountains, very large sums of money are needed to throw a pipe.

    The Americans have long planned a missile strike on Syria. And they came up with a reason: the use of chemical weapons. The Syrian opposition hinted at Obama's hint and organized (albeit rudely, not professionally) a provocation using OM. The reason was found. And only the timely brilliant move of Russia, at least averted the threat of US military intervention. Mr. Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, was not allowed to unleash yet another war game.

    Well, so what is the reason? Parshev is darkening something;

    I think it was something like this:
    The Americans told the Qatars and Saudis that in connection with the growing own production of shale oil and gas, in five years they will no longer need the Middle East. To think of new markets.

    These comrades decided to supply their gas / oil to Europe, but Syria lay on the way here. The Saudids and the Qatari people tried in every possible way to drive Assad away to build an oil pipeline through his territory, but something did not grow together - maybe Assad paid the price, or maybe Russia blew his ears so that he stands his ground and does not make any progress.
    It is unprofitable for Russia to bring Middle Eastern hydrocarbons into Europe, it will greatly bring down prices and cut back on Russian sales volumes, and this, in turn, will hit the budget of raw materials in Russia, and a mess will begin in the country.

    So, Assad listened to the opinion of Russia, and he was probably promised mountains of weapons, money and a lifelong "roof."
    I forgot that Russia always surrenders its allies.

    In response from the Saudids and Qatari, Assad received a civil war, which, most likely, would personally end for him similarly to Saddam or Gaddafi.

    What do we have in the end?
    Resource pipelines will still be built, but Syrians will pay for Assad's lopsided blood, 100 have already been paid.
    But Russia is waiting for the fate of an outcast for helping with crimes against humanity.
    Something like that.

    The concession of the United States to Russia may be planned. Once, such an activist as Chernomyrdin "helped" Yugoslavia in "resolving" the conflict that came to Yugoslavia, and personally to its president Milosevic, sideways. In fact, Syria is disarming, abandoning the chemical arsenal, this is for the United States and Israel, no doubt, good, but the prospect of attacks remains, the United States does not give guarantees. What's next? They will persuade Russia to freeze the supply of arms, and, perhaps, to give Syrian missile systems "for storage"? If war is inevitable, and there is a new reason, then there is only one plus point in deferment - weapons for Syria, more quickly, more, and more modern. If we are persuaded to freeze everything, Syria disappeared, and it would be better if it had not been disarmed, having a chemical arsenal at the beginning of the war.

    As for the author, I completely agree, but the fact that it all ended unfortunately is not. UN experts confirmed the use of chemical weapons and immediately the French Foreign Ministry claims that it was used by Assad, which again gives rise to the use of force. Although of course everyone understands that this is a provocation of pure water.

    Good evening everyone!

    The article is good, I liked it! good It says a lot directly, the rest is unsaid. This is clear. See for yourself dear! You and I ALL figures are small (each individually / it IS JUST ALL TOGETHER WE ARE GREAT FORCE), but we can afford to openly and directly express our thoughts and assumptions. Well-known people who print in the press (in regular, not yellow) often do not want to express all their thoughts or are wary of it.
    Not all serious personalities will go down to the level of Vladimir Volfovich (who shouts out what he wants or what they will order him).

    The author is right about the fact that the Wahhabist intervention in Syria with 2011 and the current threat of an open attack by USA_2013-08 are just part of a “multi-way geopolitical game”.
    The fact that there will be a war in Syria and it must be destroyed as a state, "/ Jewish / world government" decided 30-40 years ago, and their plans, so far systematically, are being implemented!
    The reason for the planned destruction of Syria is the plans to create a "Greater Israel" which will occupy the territories of 6-7 countries in the North-East and North Africa (Israel, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, etc. / i.e. spread out from the Nile to the Euphrates! )

    The current US flywheel stop on the invasion is just a stitch. angry It is difficult now to say how long it will last: a month or two or 6-24 months? Much depends on ordinary Syrians, the Assad government, the size of support from Russia, Iran and China ?!

    C Over time, oil and gas pipelines WILL be laid through Syria, and so the future 4-8 years will confirm all of us. The only question is that will Russia / Gazprom or Western multinationals have valves for the pipes and buttons of the pumps?
    The fact that there are and will find new sources of gas and oil in Syria, this only increases its "commercial price" as a victim of the Victor.
    Already now, for the proceeds of the predatory sale of oil in northern Syria, Wahhabis are buying ammunition for themselves, etc.

    All our assumptions, disputes and opinions will be checked by time - some years 4-8.

    Sincerely, Mikhailo.

    No, the stump is clear - he is a manager, and as the "board of shareholders" decides, so it will be. But I’m talking about something else - why do you think that he personally wanted it or wants it? And who said that he is "flint"?
