Edward Lozansky: Obama lost in the Middle East, and the Kremlin found

31
3 in November in the popular American newspaper "Washington Times" published a remarkable article by E. Lozansky on the acute geopolitical issues related to Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, the regional opposition of Sunni and Shiites, as well as problems of the US Middle East policy. The current path of Saudi Arabia is considered by the scientist to be a dead end, and it is Moscow, not Washington, that is announcing the driving force of Middle Eastern diplomacy.


Edward Lozansky: Obama lost in the Middle East, and the Kremlin found


Comrade Lozansky is a physicist, publicist, public figure, founder and president of a private American University in Moscow, operating since 1990. Also known for the fact that in the 2011 year, after consolidating with Anthony Salvia (director of the American Institute in Ukraine), he filed a lawsuit against Obama in the Washington district court. The plaintiffs demanded that the court order the president to cancel the Jackson - Vanik 1974 amendment of the year (Jackson - Vanik amendment), without waiting for the congressional resolution. The claim, however, was dismissed.

In the room The Washington Times The scientist reminded the reading public about the July visit to Moscow of the Saudi emissary - the head of intelligence, Prince Bandar bin Sultan. According to media reports, this man offered Vladimir Putin some benefits - in exchange for the Kremlin’s refusal to support the Assad government in Syria. In addition, Moscow must accept the fact that Islamic fundamentalists, who are lured by the Saudi monarchy, Assad overthrown.

Made prince bandar and unheard of stories the diplomatic move, the scientist notes: he put forward a proposal to provide Russian companies with privileged access to Saudi oil resources and additional cooperation of Saudi Arabia with Russia in the field of energy policy.

The culmination of the conversation was the "ominous" episode. Such a proposal was more suitable not for diplomacy, but “for a gangster film.” If Russia takes into account Saudi interests in Syria, the prince said, then Riyadh guarantees the security of the Sochi Olympics. Terrorist radicals will not attack Sochi.

Said Lozansky and the alleged divorce of the United States and Saudi Arabia. There are signs, he writes, that a marriage of convenience between the United States and Saudi Arabia is not so convenient now, as before, at least for Riyadh. According to the expert, Obama disappointed the Saudis even more than the American public. Obama does not have the effective ability to conduct diplomacy, no visible strategic plan, no principles. He had promised to strike Syria with Tomahawks, to the joy of the Saudi princes, but Congress suddenly poured cold water on his hot plans. Then followed the diplomatic initiative of the Kremlin, which put forward a proposal that Syria would eliminate the chemical arsenals weapons under international control. The Syrian government accepted the proposal, and it was immediately approved by the UN. Supporters of the anti-Syrian campaign and their Saudi allies could only "sulk."

As Lozansky reminds, the Saudi royal house is one of the most repressive and corrupt regimes in the world. However, his imperious abuses of the US administration politely turn a blind eye. The royal family relies on the support of fanatics of Wahhabism. It was in Riyadh that the jihadists, who at one time played a decisive role in the Mujahideen war against the USSR in Afghanistan, were inspired by their exploits. The latter was later controlled by the brutal medieval regime of the Taliban. Osama bin Laden, who created the al-Qaida network, also received support from there.

In Syria, the Saudis are not going to defend human rights or investigate al-Assad’s alleged war crimes. The main object of concern of the monarchy is Iran and the general environment of Shiite Muslims. For the Saudis, the scientist notes, Shiites are dangerous apostates who abandon the "true religion" and worship false idols. Iran is the focus of Shiite theocracy, which, moreover, after the American occupation of Iraq, gained enormous influence on Shiites there. In Saudi Arabia there is a very hectic Shiite minority, weary of monarchist oppression and the status of second-class people.

The Saudis would like to arrange a Sunni fundamentalist caliphate in Syria, simply because the current secular and pluralistic government in Damascus is supported by Shiites in Tehran.

As for Russia, she, as the author of the material notes, “wisely enough” fears to conclude a “Faustian deal” with the kingdom. Russia has its own tragic experience in the fight against Wahhabism. Moreover, the Wahhabi movement, by all accounts, is partially funded by wealthy Saudis who have long supported jihadism throughout the world.

What conclusion does the expert make?

Saudi Arabia is at an impasse that is good for a peaceful outlook in Syria, for international talks on Iran’s nuclear program and for the Middle East as a whole.

In addition, in terms of raw materials, the United States is becoming less dependent on the Middle East and is probably less inclined to interfere in regional affairs.

Another result: Moscow is now the driving force in Middle Eastern diplomacy. Considering the entire “track record” of the United States and its allies from Saudi Arabia over the past decades, the author seems to conclude, the time has come for Russian diplomacy.

Very remarkable is not only the article itself, but also numerous comments to it. We give some.

No sensible world leader trusts Obama.

Has Obama lost the kingdom of Saud? Yeah.
He sided with his enemies, and proved that he is a liar and a most dishonest person.


vonstonewall
Without generalizations, the entire Middle East is a powder keg. Protracted tribal wars, resentment, double-dealing, someone’s oil estates ... Bammy (as the commentator called Obama. - O. Ch.) Allowed the Russians to oust the United States from politics, and perhaps its lack of talent would be useful (it is clear that not Israel) ... Keep Bammy on the golf course.


flitpriss
Excellent newsif this is true. The Saudis are a corrupt kleptocracy, working as a brutal dictatorship. Saudi Arabia sent us 9 / 11 hijackers and bin Laden. Saudis are sponsoring thousands of radical madrasahs that act as recruiting centers for terrorists. With such "friends" as the Saudis, we do not need enemies.

Professor Lozansky. The title of the article does not seem to fit the text. You are right: the time has come for the US to give a chance to Russian diplomacy. There is a good reason for this — US national security. Literally the other day there was an article in the Washington Times, in which it was reported that the Chinese boasted of their nuclear capabilities and a map with orientations to cities in the United States. And this despite the retaliation. Russians are not so arrogant and seem to be much more concerned about their own national security than fighting the US government, whose media shake red rags to Putin’s Russia as a bull, declaring their legislative protection of gay rights while always showing a condescending attitude . But our politicians on both sides simply love the Saudis (well, let me rephrase: love is Saudi money), ignoring the obvious oppression of the people and religious minorities there. The Saudis are anti-American, but pro-American against dollars — that’s what ends there.
Russia has something to offer American companies. Germany and Russia are working on trade agreements and commercial transactions (I suspect that this is why the NSA tapped Merkel’s private cell phone). Yes, their culture is very different from the American one, but, on the other hand, they have similar interests in the field of national security. Russia cannot have a large population, but Russians are strong people, they have a lot of natural and energy resources and a lot of free space in the country. Russia borders with China - a country that wants to push the United States from the position of an economic leader. The time has come when the politicians of both countries should think about the future - not only about eliminating the budget deficit, but also about the long-term security of the people. And Russian diplomacy is part of this long-term national security strategy.


Edward lozansky
Katie, the name was not chosen by me, but I wrote an article for exactly the same reasons that you indicated in your comment. You said it was good, and I will give your opinion - so that my American and Russian students would think about it and, perhaps, continue.

    And there is nothing to comment on, since there has already been material about the visit of the Saudis, and on this topic was expressed by the majority of "fe". There was also a prediction of how their desire to become the "big boy" of the Arab world would end for them.

          Most likely, the GDP is waiting for the end of the Olympiad, Prince Bandar bin Sultan did a huge stupid thing - he openly threatened the GDP, and such feints with his ears have not gotten away lately, and you don’t have to go far for examples: Sarkozy, Oland, the Canadian example, Lithuanians, etc. laughing

            Andrei, what did Olanda, Sarkozy, Lithuanians do, and what did they say?
            or in response to the financing of terrorists on the territory of the Russian Federation and the destruction of our citizens, we must block the import of some cheese from the UAE IF IT WAS DELIVERED ???

            he openly threatened GDP

            And what is the stupidity? Do you really think that the prince blundered without weighing the word? in agony and anger ??
            They just lost fear ... they got used to the fact that their actions go unpunished.
            I understand when the United States goes against the charter of the United Nations without the United Nations and bombing Iraq, I understand when DAM surrenders Libya, but when it comes to a bunch of Arabs, with billions of dollars that they spend on destroying Russia ... I don’t understand.
            Many will begin to write that it’s impossible to do things on a hot head, you need to tolerate, and even trouble can be called a war ...
            Is this not a war? nor is this the very trait beyond which, in principle, no one can go?
            why 100 500 ka-52, su-35, t-50 if they kill us in a different way ???
            then you need to spend the military budget on special services, so that the prince just hinted at it. and the newly made terrorist attack was stopped in the bud ...

They are already living out the last days of the 10-year period of "adaptation to the EU" for their money. Then you run out of money and, accordingly, Lithuania.

              Why measure politics with cheese? Let's get oil - where will the Saudis supply oil after the US diversifies supplies? Russia did this a long time ago, blocking China and Asia for the Saudis. And at the same time not giving access to Europe by supporting Syria. That is why they rushed - the smell of poverty. Awful smell for monarchies.

                In the field of oil production, I am not strong, but I am acquainted with the gas field and it is not as much as we would like! I have in mind explored fields.

                Feel the difference ??? it’s unlikely .... in fact, it’s hard for me to imagine what a horror our citizens went through, who were not lucky enough to become participants in this atrocity, which manifested itself not only in these terrible events !!!

                  GDP is now at stake for the Olympics, it cannot be disrupted, but if the prince's fosterlings allow themselves something during this and will be a necessary and sufficient reason to resolve the issue of the monarchies of the Gulf, and their intention to acquire nuclear weapons from Pakistan will make the previously announced plan of the Russian Air Force ( air raid across the Caspian, Iran and beyond) is simply inevitable and justified in all respects, including in the UN Security Council. Leaks such as threats from the prince and (previously) from the Air Force headquarters are not in vain. After February, America will have no time for princes - they have their own "kaput" planned there.

    "... There is information that Putin is preparing to oppose the Saudi dynasty. They say that all this will happen after the Sochi Olympics. Against the background of the weakening of US influence in the region, Russia can seriously ruin the life of the" country of two mosques. "Everyone knows that Putin considers a collapse The USSR is the greatest tragedy of the 20th century.Please note, according to the Russian president, the tragedy of the collapse of the USSR is more significant than the losses in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, but that tragedy affected every family in the USSR. the tragedy of the collapse of the USSR is the Russian president? And the SA is the culprit in the collapse of the USSR. The Russian president has a special account to this country.

    Now the main question is to hold the Olympics in Sochi. It should be recalled that on July 31 of this year, the head of the general intelligence of Saudi Arabia, Bandar bin Sultan, met with the Russian president. The meeting was confidential - and even secret - in nature. According to information that has become known to us, Bandar Ben Sultan suggested that Putin abandon his support for Syria. In exchange for this service, the same prince said that the SA would allow the Olympic Games to be held in Sochi in peace. The prince frankly stated that the Chechen terrorists are controlled from the SA and did so completely in vain. It should be noted that the prince began the conversation in a somewhat strange manner. He stated that Russia and the SA have one goal - the fight against terrorism, and some time later stated that it was the SA that was directing and sending militants to Chechnya. Is it any surprise that the Russian president replied: “We know that you have supported Chechen terrorist groups for many years. And the support that you spoke so frankly now is absolutely incompatible with the general goals of combating global terrorism that you mentioned ... "..."

    Saudi Arabia is a country that lives as long as it has oil. If you run out of oil, it will turn into a desert mirage. The Saudis also understand this, and by their preaching of jihad are pushing Muslims to seize territories suitable for living in the future.

After all, you don't want to change from Maybachs to camels.


      it is claimed that by 2030, Saudi Arabia will begin to import oil. A comparison chart of countries on oil consumption per capita, where Saudi Arabia ranks first in the world, is presented. we are in 4th place in terms of energy consumption per person in the world. This suggests that Russia’s difficulties are surmountable and if we hadn’t had a Russian winter, the standard of living in the Russian Federation would now be higher than the average European.



      In the next graph, you can see the dependence of declining oil exports due to an increase in domestic resource consumption.



      As Heidi Rehman of City writes:

      Saudi Arabia could become an oil importing country by about 2030. At the moment, Saudi Arabia is the largest oil-producing country in the world (11 million barrels per day) of which (7.7 billion barrels per day) is exported. It also consumes 25% of the oil produced. Energy consumption per capita exceeds a significant part of the industrialized countries. Oil and petroleum products provide more than 50% of Saudi Arabia's electricity, which is mostly (> 50%) used for domestic purposes. The demand for electricity is increasing by 8% annually. In our analysis, we predict that if no changes follow, then By 2030, Saudi Arabia will not be able to export oil.
      Saudi Arabia runs out of oil

    This phrase alone says a lot. What would happen to the United Arab Emirates, if from the lips of "fat ..." such words shit during Soviet times ???
    I think there would no longer be the UAE ... to be honest, the situation is simply indescribable with normal vocabulary on either side. All attempts to resist terrorism does not make sense if the source is known and cannot be destroyed. It’s like if you are hit on the head, and instead of giving the attacker a jaw, you are trying to expose the remaining parts of your body under attack!
    Of course, I do not presume to argue about the truth of these words, but judge as if they were actually pronounced.

    By God there are no words, it's just ... !!!! I am ashamed and painful to realize this! And I want to spit on the international order, world order, but all NATO ... Why defend the borders. if tons of drugs go through them, killing our children, if the terrorist attacks on our territory are openly funded !!! Or have everyone forgotten about the Nord-Ost, Beslan ... I don't give a damn about everyone and everything. Ultimatum: if there is terror, there will be the United Arab Emirates under a nuclear mushroom ... The United States will not fit in for them, they will piss. if we position ourselves as a power, then we need to behave accordingly. Hurray, patriots can blame me for losing my pulse, I didn't care about that either. When questions are posed in this way, then there is simply no room for words ...

      I think there would no longer be the UAE ... to be honest, the situation is simply indescribable with normal vocabulary on either side. All attempts to resist terrorism does not make sense if the source is known and cannot be destroyed. It’s like if you are hit on the head, and instead of giving the attacker a jaw, you are trying to expose the remaining parts of your body under attack!


      Put a plus for emotions ... Just think without emotions WHO is actually the organizer of terrorism. Saud, Qatar are only intermediaries in this process. Heads sit in the United States, Britain and Israel ... Remove one mediator, put another. The Saudis felt that the "roof" began to leak. From here, throwing searches for new patrons, blackmail and threats. Oil standard become very shaky and Americans are looking for a replacement. And this is a collapse for Saudi Arabia. Therefore, to get rid of terrorism, you need to bomb the United States, not mediators and satellites, and this, alas, is impossible without consequences. And on the site of the bombed monarchies will arise Eretz Yisrael. And all the remaining Arabs after the bombardment with the same green money and under the strict guidance of will be sent to jihad against Russia, which destroyed their house. out of sight of the Jewish settlers.

        Yes, Ascetic deeply dug Israel's golden dream, but there is an option to use the Iranian and Syrian special forces to clean up, of course, after the liberation strike on the palaces (the reason is an attempt to illegally acquire nuclear weapons and the terrorist war in the Middle East and Russia). Of course, everything after the Olympics and in response to the terrorist activity of the "Prince's children" and interest in nuclear toys.

    The Kremlin has not found it yet, but is actively looking for its own death in the Middle East (having already lost mobilization supplies, the fleet and a lot of people), and Obama is in no hurry to go to heaven and distances himself from the process. It is not a pity for officials with a penchant for black magic, but it is not they who die, but the naive youth, and the old opportunists sing odes to the Kremlin.

    From there, Osama bin Laden, who created the al-Qaeda network, also received support.

    rare nonsense!

      No bullshit.
      Al-Qaeda is essentially a branch of the Saudi secret services. This is so clear that it is inconvenient to even talk about it.
      A curious moment. Al-Qaeda is characterized by anti-Israeli rhetoric, but at the same time there is no action against Israel. And the hostile attitude towards the Palestinian groups, which in 2009 resulted in open war, is not an accident. It is explained by the de facto unspoken alliance between the Saudis and Zionists. And this alliance, in turn, is explained by the pro-American orientation.

    <<< If Russia takes into account Saudi interests in Syria, the prince said, then Riyadh will guarantee the security of the Sochi Olympics. Radical terrorists will not attack Sochi. >>>
    Such an offer, which does not fit into any generally accepted framework of relations between states, is essentially a blatant blackmail; one can only answer that, as they say, one should not throw stones at a neighbor when you live in a glass house! Russia is not a state with which you can talk like that! Indeed, in the event of something, then in the kingdom itself - the viper of Wahhabism, it may suddenly tear something, break, etc. It has made so many enemies capable of organizing such actions that it has enough of it even without specialists from the Russian special services! So little will not seem to the princes!

    All these Qatar, Emirates, Bayrain and Saudis can be deprived of their source of income by making oil unnecessary. Back in Soviet times, our scientists have created many breakthrough technologies in the energy sector that do not need oil. Only now, even under Soviet rule, officials of various ranks were spreading rot, and projects and documents were hidden under the cloth. Even Mendeleev argued - "Using oil as fuel is like stoking a stove with banknotes." Modern scientists, both ours and foreign ones, have long had prototypes of new technologies that do without oil. Only the attraction of such technologies radically changes the whole life of people, many branches of the industry become unnecessary, which is very disadvantageous, first of all, to oil magnates. I would very much like Russia to introduce such inventions at home, but all this is very unprofitable for our government, the raw material economy allows you to get rich and fill your pocket.

    Even a mouse driven into a corner can turn into a tiger. Qatar and the Saudis, with their mercenaries, remind now of a driven animal. Therefore, it is ten times more dangerous and not predictable.
    On the other hand, if they dare to provoke at the Olympics in Sochi, this will be the end of the Saudi monarchy. The world community, I think even in the USA, will not forgive them for this. Moreover, there is enough oil embargo and international economic sanctions and they will be devoured by their own impoverished environment within a year. I think the Saudis themselves understand this. Therefore, the GDP very competently started to hear that
    Riyadh guarantees the safety of the Sochi Olympics
    under certain conditions that are not acceptable for Russia. Now, if the Saudi prince is not a suicide, then he should be most worried about the safety of Sochi events, otherwise the whole Saudi monarchy will be soaked in the toilet.
