"The Ultimatum of Prince Bandar"

71
"The Ultimatum of Prince Bandar"The recent crisis around Syria, when Obama was nearly forced to enter into a military clash with the Russian fleet, showed that the capabilities of Saudi Arabia are enough to organize a local catastrophe.


The words of Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud, replicated "Reuters", look, to put it mildly, scandalous. Prince Bandar made a statement affecting allied relations with the United States of America, and this is clearly not the point - according to the canons, only the first person can make such a meaningful and meaningful speech. And no one else.

Saudi Arabia, according to Bandar, intends to “radically change” its relationship with the United States. The reason is the unfriendly policy of America in matters directly affecting the national security of the Kingdom. Bahrain was named, the “ineffectiveness” of the US Syrian policy and the traditional Palestinian issue.

Nevertheless, it is quite obvious that it was not these minor misunderstandings that caused such a harsh statement. Iranian-American warming and their successful negotiations are in full view of all - this is the main headache of al-Saud, which has no strength to endure.

The collective security system of the Arabian monarchies has always focused on an external source of power due to the completely objective impossibility of the Arabian “six” to create a self-sufficient military-industrial infrastructure. That is why the Arabian sheikhs and emirs relied first on England and then on the United States, soberly assessing their ability to withstand external threats. Sitting on a huge heap of sand over the bottomless lakes of oil, you should always take into account the opinion of neighbors, who may find it unfair to any gift of Allah to some camel drivers.

Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait only strengthened the Arab monarchs of this suspicion. Do not shorten the United States of Saddam Hussein, he might have already screwed his towers along the entire east coast of Arabia.

The demarche of Prince Bandar, who has not yet been commented on by King Abdullah, looks completely illogical and somewhat hysterical. If only because Saudi Arabia has no adequate replacement for the United States as a defender. Independently, the Arabian monarchs cannot ensure their security - especially in a situation when Bahrain is occupied by the Kingdom at all, and without this occupation, it is quite possible that for two years it would be a republic. Qatar under the new emir of Tamim has managed to radically change its current policy over the past few months and cannot be considered a friendly state for al-Saud.

Finally, the special (as always) position of Oman turns the “six” into a “troika”, which under no circumstances can cope with the entire list of threats that it faces.

However, the statement is made. Made by a man who, on foreign policy and special operations, ate not only a dog, but a herd of camels. Prince Bandar was never a hysterical one, his personal courage and his mind are not disputed by anyone - all this means that he understands the meaning of what was said and speaks with a cool head.

What conclusions from the above can be done? First, most likely, there is a tough confrontation within the Saudi elite on this very important issue. So tough that Prince Bandar makes his statement in defiance of all the canons before the king, putting his opponents within a dynasty in an extremely difficult position.

The second conclusion - Prince Bandar, being a personal friend of the leading US republican families and their political ally, could not make his statement without coordinating it with his American friends. What does it mean - the political struggle within the United States is entering a new, even higher level. Direct connection of Saudi Arabia to it is heavy artillery, without which Republicans can no longer cope with Obama.

The third conclusion is that Saudi Arabia demonstrates its own “red line”, for which it is ready to discard all conventions and rules in relation to anyone, including the United States. The recent crisis around Syria, when Obama was almost forced to enter a military clash with the Russian fleet, showed that the capabilities of Saudi Arabia are enough to organize a local catastrophe. The ears of the Saudi special services too clearly stick out of provocation near Aleppo and in Eastern Gut.

The farther away - the more it looks like the Saudis are behind the latest terrorist attacks in Russia. Or at least their money. About a month ago, according to the unofficial opinion of the Russian special services, quite a lot of money of unknown origin came to the militants, which were converted into a failed terrorist attack in the Kirov region and the explosion of a bus in Volgograd.

However, his main trump card, it seems, Prince Bandar saves for later. Saudi Arabia is able to repeat its move with the oil blockade of the West, which will bring down the economy, which is dying from the crisis - both in Europe and in the USA.

This move was not mentioned, however, a “fundamental revision” of relations with the United States cannot do without undermining the stability of the oil market - you can only bargain from a position of strength, and Bandar’s statement should be viewed only as bargaining that can turn into an ultimatum.

Obama is unlikely to ignore this unprecedented statement by one of the most influential representatives of the al-Saud dynasty. And he also has something to show and answer. But it is already completely different. история.

    The farther - the more it seems that the last terrorist attacks in Russia are also Saudis. Or at least their money.
    In the event of a global conflict, Saudi Arabia needs to be eliminated as Hitler Germany, as it is the sponsor of the ideological and financial world terror and the closest ally of the United States.

      In 1984, they seized 4 Soviet diplomats, everyone knew where what was coming from. A person like an ambassador came, met with some kind of wrong prince, who would sort them out there, in short, from the royal family. He asked for the people, that he told him; ... okay, now, only in the USSR, the exercises begin, with rocket firing, so excuse me if the missile "accidentally" lands in Mecca "He didn't reach the embassy yet, they were already released ...

        Well, yes, for some reason, one of the diplomats was shot upright. The diplomat was killed by Imad Mughniy, a man who later became the leader of the armed wing of Hezbollah. So, as we see, he was hit by a drum on a rocket.

            Mugnia was born in southern Lebanon in the village of Tire Diba, near the city of Tire, in a Shiite family. His father was a vegetable merchant. At 13, he joined the PLO, attracted the attention of Arafat, and soon became a member of his "Division 17". He fired at Christian villages in southern Lebanon as a sniper. In 1982, when the PLO was forced to leave Lebanon as a result of the Lebanon war, Arafat ordered Mugnie to transfer her weapons to the PLO-related Lebanese fighters. At the same time, Mugnia refused to leave Lebanon with the PLO. For a while he studied at the American University of Beirut. According to US intelligence, since 1983 it has been behind a series of major terrorist attacks against Americans and Israelis. The first attack on which he is accused is the explosion of the American consulate in Beirut on April 17, 1983, killing 63 people. Then, according to the FBI, he stands behind the terrorist attack of October 23, 1983 (the bombings of the peacekeeping barracks in Beirut) that claimed the lives of 58 French peacekeeping soldiers and 241 US marine soldiers. In 1985, organized the seizure of a TWA airline (1 dead). In the same 1985, he organized the abduction of four Soviet citizens and personally shot one of the captured, diplomat Arkady Katkov. In 1992, he stood behind the explosion of the building of the Jewish Cultural Center in Buenos Aires (86 dead).

            as you can see, he personally shot without even blinking an eye.

        Captured in Lebanon in 1982, and the conversation on the topic of where the missile could fall was with the sheikh, who in Iran oversaw Hezbalah and other Lebanese rebels.

      Sorry for repeating ..

      The real reason why Saudis drift away from the US

      Saudi Arabia warned of a drift away from the United States.

      Here's the real reason: China has just overthrown the United States as the largest importer of oil.

      Writes Oil Price (English):

      Last month, the world witnessed a paradigm shift: China surpassed the United States as the world's largest consumer of foreign oil by importing 6,3 million barrels per day compared with US imports of 6,24 million barrels. According to the US Energy Information Administration, this trend is likely to continue, and the gap will widen. Consulting firm Wood Mackenzie reiterates this forecast, believing that Chinese oil imports will grow by 2020 to 9,3 million barrels (70 percent of total demand).

      - Do you want advice from a Muslim? laughing And make a terrorist attack precisely during the Hajj, when on the square in Mecca under a million people read namaz at the same time. The explosion itself will directly destroy twenty people, no more, the volume of explosives is a belt, maybe two, how many a suicide bomber can carry. But panic will kill her two or three hundred people. And mind you, there is no need to carry out this terrorist act - this is the most powerful Achilles heel of Saudi Arabia, on this annual Hajj the whole secret of its influence on all Muslims. Because of the terrorist attacks, they will go to the Hajj - Saudi Arabia at the moment, as they say, "zeroes". Hence the conclusion - Bandar is summoned to Moscow, there, as a pleasant meeting with Ramzan, who will be a good police officer and politely exhort to stop terrorist attacks, and a confidential meeting with the Darkest, in which he will bluntly say that Russia will not be afraid to turn the whole Arab world against itself and strike precisely at Mecca. There are risks, of course, that the entire Arab world ... So what? The whole Arab world got up already, when there was the USSR, nothing, survived.

          Trex, did you read the post carefully? The very "threat of a terrorist attack in the most painful place is worse than the terrorist attack itself" - do you understand the meaning of this phrase? And you don't need to bomb anyone ... Bombing means running into a conflict with NATO, well, even if not a conflict, NATO members will definitely be able to use these bombing strikes to present Russia as an "evil empire." With the help of the shot down South Korean aircraft and Afghanistan, they managed to present the USSR as a monster, although both the South Korean aircraft and Afghanistan are the purest water of a setup. Here they will be able to. Moreover, they will make it so that the world forgets that it is Saudi Arabia that is behind most of the terrorist attacks in Russia, and will present it as a white and fluffy victim of "aggressive Russia." The other extreme is to do nothing and respond to the ultimatums of all Bandars like - this endangers our cooperation, etc. in the same spirit - it means there will be terrorist attacks ...
          In Israel, the relatives of the terrorists began to take responsibility - this has already sharply reduced the number of hunters to make money on terrorist attacks. Only fear is a very and VERY hard answer to stop the terrorist. Dear, you are not your own methods or stick it to hell and endure all these explosions further, or already find a way to discourage. One of these methods is what I suggested to you. And it’s real - the threat is more terrible here, it’s not necessary to implement it, but you need to convince yourself that if something happens, there will be no question of putting it into practice. And Saudi Arabia will rise at the moment of silk, you do not even recognize. Power is respected in the East, namely cruel force. The fact that something like Saudi or non-Saudi Arabia does all this - this state does not even consider it necessary to hide its support for terrorism in Russia. And even brazenly flaunts it. And I personally when I see that Saudi Arabia flaunts this, the explosions in Russia continue, I DO NOT perceive it as the humanity and reasonableness of Russia, although this may be so, but I perceive it as its weakness and cowardice. Hence the further conclusions. If the ambassador was beaten in Qatar, they will be beaten in another place, no question. You would have better left humanity and rationality for internal use, and you would have offered a different recipe to foreign unfriendly powers, otherwise it’s the other way around.

      Saudis generally have no less money. Can you imagine the length of Russian pipelines? Can you cover from sabotage?

      And statements like "that the Saudis are behind the explosion in Volgograd" still need to be proved.

    Saudi Arabia is able to repeat its move with the oil blockade of the West, which will bring down the economy that is dying of the crisis - both Europe and the United States.

    Yes, she is not capable of anything. "Six" was offended, and lost a lot of dough. Republicans provoke pressure on Obama. A puppet state is incapable of any kind of confrontation, let alone a military one. They don't want to lose everything and become camel drivers again.
    Obama is unlikely to miss this unprecedented statement by one of the most influential representatives of the al-Saudi dynasty. he also has something to present and answer.

    During the exercises, the missile deviating from the route accidentally flew into the window of al-Saud. Apologies, issue resolved.

    Having a bunch of candy wrappers, the Saudis want to dictate their will to the whole world. Everything is for sale, but some (or some) cannot be bought.

    The Saudis invested their money in the "Arab spring", which arose in Syria, and then Egypt (the main Arab prize) was freed from the Islamist contagion and the United States only expressed dissatisfaction, but did nothing (yes because they could ..). Moreover, they say that the sheikhs paid for the US strike on Syria, down to every cruise missile, and there a Russian national squadron was assembled in advance, and this is a different scenario. The hysterics of the handsome prince is understandable (GDP has hinted at the problems with the Olympics), bankruptcy is on the nose, oil is ending, and America needs oil, if not by military means then peace, of course, with Iran. Here, even the Jews are crying, since there is a whole wall for this. In this new scheme, it was possible to prepare to roam again on camels, but here more sins had accumulated and the family would most likely simply be cut.

    Iraq was also friends with the United States, was their friend and ally against Shiite Iran. Hussein really considered himself a cool macho. They say I’m so cool that I talk with equals on equal terms, they go to me, respect me ... Just like the current Saudis and Iraqis there were a lot of free petrodollars.

    Saddam sincerely believed that he was a friend, bro, and reproached Washington until 1991. Anyway, this is an example for all donkeys including Prince Bandar

    <<< The further it goes, the more it looks like the Saudis are behind the latest terrorist attacks in Russia. >>>
    And not only for the latter! This Wahhabi rabble has been waging a war against Russia for a long time, teaching and sending out the preachers of Wahhabism, trying to oust the traditional Muslim direction of Islam in Russia, replacing it with its aggressive fundamentalist faith, calling for jihad against the infidels with the aim of collapsing Russia "partners" in NATO) and the creation on Russian territory of various imarats, caliphates who will live according to Sharia law! There are fears that the terrorist attack in Volgograd is just the beginning! These Islamic scumbags are preparing to deliver the main blow to Russia on the eve of or during the Sochi Olympics, which, by the way, was reportedly unambiguously hinted at by the Saudi emissary at a meeting with Putin! Therefore, it is advisable already now to warn this Saudi shobla, who thinks of its greatness, that if something like that happens, Russia will find an opportunity to respond VERY HARD and sponsors will not save it!

    If negotiations on Iran’s nuclear issue continue to be fruitful and economic sanctions are lifted, I think this means the United States decided to end the Saudi family by switching to oil supplies from Iran and thereby try to create an oil shortage in China, as in an Asian rival -Pacific region. And China, possibly having some kind of information, concludes major contracts for the supply of oil from the Russian Federation.

    All the same, Prince Bandar is not an independent person and his policy is strongly tied to the United States. Saudi Arabia cannot change the vector even with the best squabble with America. They now act as conductors of dirty deeds that the United States itself cannot do because of its democratic status. they didn’t squabble at one business, in the USA they put intractable allies in their place quite well. It is possible to predict with a 70% probability small national unrest in a “friendly” country of the east!
