Military Review

Saudi Arabia digs its own grave

To better understand yet another failure of the anti-Iranian initiative of Saudi Arabia at the last GCC summit in Kuwait on December 11, where Riyadh’s proposal to transform the economic union into a military alliance was openly and unconditionally supported only by Bahrain, and other members of the Council actually avoided this (only some kind of general military command was created, and without common armed forces), it is enough to return exactly 2 a year ago, when King Abdullah announced the project of creating an 6 member of the military-political organization 2011 in December in a speech by a Saudi monarch at the GCC summit in Riyadh, allegedly as a response to the growing “Iranian threat”, as presented by the KSA rulers.

At that time, this initiative was aimed at binding the conservative monarchies to Wahhabi Saudi Arabia more firmly and, under the slogan of confrontation with Tehran, to keep the Sunni regimes of Arabia in power in the face of “revolutionary” changes in the Arab world. In this context, the fight against Iran looked like an attractive excuse, all the more so because in Washington at that time they were not yet ready to understand the essence of the “Arab spring” and the need to normalize relations with Tehran. The internal problems of the essentially reactionary monarchies could be boldly blamed on the intrigues of external enemies, who allegedly decided to shake the foundations of the conservative Arabian regimes, using significant Shiite populations in a number of Arab countries in the Persian Gulf. This interpretation provided Saudi Arabia with at least two advantages: first, it allowed, without limitation, to prepare and export its own Sunni-Wahhabi jihadists and terrorists to the “battlefields” with Shiites to different countries, primarily to Syria and Iraq. In fact, this meant identifying in the early stages of their jihadists and potential terrorist mercenaries and providing them with “work” far from their homeland, in foreign countries. And secondly, this method of ensuring the “employment” of one’s own Islamic radicals substantially reduced the pressure on the overall domestic political situation. The further development of the situation in Syria and Iraq only confirmed this.

The fact that the creation of a military-political union was conceived primarily as a way to prevent the change of dynastic monarchies in the Persian Gulf states to elective republican regimes was also indicated by the initiative put forward by Saudi Arabia to expand the GCC at the expense of two other Sunni Arab monarchies - in Jordan and morocco. And this despite the fact, unlike the Hashemite Kingdom, which has at least a common border with KSA, Morocco is located thousands of kilometers from the Persian Gulf. But this did not embarrass Riyadh, since such an unusual maneuver made it possible to create a coalition of Arab hereditary monarchies that would rely on the military-political alliance proposed by Saudi.

Riyadh’s intentions in practice were realized in February 2011 of the year during the operation “Shield of the Peninsula”, initiated and led by the Saudis, during which the GCC contingent, based on the Saudi division, reinforced by armored vehicles, was introduced into the Kingdom of Bahrain. Under the pretext of fighting with external interference from Iran, the crisis on the island under the influence of the Arab Spring was able to “freeze” the crisis between the Al-Khalifa’s ruling Sunni surname and the Shiite majority, who demanded political rights and redistribution of power in their favor.

Saudi Arabia digs its own grave

After the armed suppression of Shiite protests in February 2011, the forces of the Saudi military contingent on the island entered a very fragile visible calm, which is guaranteed by the island’s Saudi occupation. Everything that happened was qualified as a "conspiracy of a foreign state to overthrow the existing regime." It is clear that in this case it was a “transparent allusion” to Iran. This thesis has already been invoked by the leadership of Bahrain earlier. Moreover, in 2010, it was under this pretext that the opposition Shiite parties were effectively barred from participating in parliamentary elections. But we are talking about 70% of the population. The path of repression in this case, as experience in other countries shows, is ineffective and even counterproductive. Moreover, the “hard pressure option” could work only in the event of further gradual easing of Shiite capital and moderate political parties. Today, the power of the Sunni royal regime in Bahrain is provided exclusively by the support of the military force of Riyadh. At the same time, the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf, as well as the West, do not see this problem and they ignore its consideration, thus leaving an explosive hearth capable of breaking out at any moment.

Here are just some statistics to confirm this. Given that at present 70% of the population of Bahrain are ethnic Shiite Arabs, in the structures of power, they are represented completely unfairly. Representation of Shiites in such structures of power as the royal court, the royal guard and the army is close to zero. From 29 ministries in the government of Bahrain, the Shiites own only 6. Of the 29 deputy ministers, only 3 are Shiite. From 230 high posts in the judiciary, which includes the High Judicial Council, the Constitutional Court, courts, administrative councils, etc., Shiites occupy only 28 seats and there is not a single chairman among them, i.e. The share of Shiites in the judiciary is about 12%. In the legislative branch, among 40 members of the Consultative Council (Majlis al-Shura) there are 17 Shiites and among 40 members of the Chamber of Deputies - 18 Shiites. The unfair electoral system continues to maintain stiff discrimination against the Shiite majority of the kingdom’s population.

The Bahraini Sunni leadership, under the influence of its “elder brother” in the Persian Gulf, took steps that only put the situation in a dead end. Not only are Shiites represented in the power structures extremely unfair, in addition to this, a real “witch hunt” has unfolded in the country. More than 3600 people were fired from their positions or lost their jobs, mainly in state or parastatal companies. In the private sector, things were even worse. A “black list” of companies and stores that belong to Shiites has appeared on the Internet, demanding their boycott. Fiscal authorities forced the Shiites to curtail their business. That is, the redistribution of property. In addition, there was a serious infringement of Shiite religious rights. More than 40 mosques or religious objects are destroyed or seriously damaged. And this angered the Shiites even more, making reconciliation with them less likely. Understanding this, the leadership of Bahrain went to a completely unprecedented step, launching an unspoken campaign of naturalization of the Sunnis from other countries of the Persian Gulf, granting them the citizenship of the country. It is clear that the calculation is made on future elections, since it is unlikely to seriously change the demographic balance in favor of the Sunnis.

At the same time, the military component of the KSA presence in Bahrain as part of the GCC plan (adopted in September 2011) about the existence of a permanent military base in Bahrain is maintained. There should permanently be based around the 1000 Council military personnel, mainly the Saudis. This situation illustrates only the extremely short-sighted vision of the prospects that the elderly leaders of Saudi Arabia demonstrate. Many Shiite representatives in Bahrain are convinced of the need to continue their further struggle, which seems to be combining peaceful and, possibly, coercive methods of protest. Yes, they have no other choice, thanks to the "wisdom" of Saudi strategists. And in Riyadh, it must be remembered that right “at the side” of Bahrain, at a distance of 30 km through the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf of the Saudi Eastern Province, the majority of the population are also Shiites. But it is in this part of KSA that almost all the oil of the Saudi kingdom is produced. And local Shiites angrily reacted to the armed suppression of unrest in Bahrain, holding numerous protest demonstrations, during which several people were killed by the police and security forces. And there is no guarantee that someday the Shiites of Bahrain and the Eastern Province will not oppose discrimination by Sunnis and Wahhabis, together with all the ensuing consequences for Saudi and other Arabian regimes.

Therefore, this time the other members of the GCC did not too happily accept another idea of ​​Riyadh about the transformation of the Council from an economic association to a military bloc. They do not want to get into any internal clashes between Sunnis and Shiites in Saudi and Bahrain, much less in the dangerous anti-Iranian games of Riyadh against Tehran. Moreover, with regard to Iran, the KSA is now acting in unison with Israel. And this means that the Arab monarchies will have to abandon the principles of general Arab solidarity on the Palestinian problem, which are still glimmering on the surface - the only one that after the wave of "revolutions" still formally unites the Arabs. If this “unity” ceases to exist, then the Arab republican regimes will have the full moral right to oppose the rotten monarchies of Arabia and conclude a deal with any potential ally on this subject, including Iran. But revenge for the fact that with their intervention Saudi, Qatar and some other people from the GCC actually sowed death and destruction in such Arab countries as Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya, can be very strong. Most Arab states and so did not like the overly wealthy monarchies of the Persian Gulf, fattening oil and gas revenues, and not particularly sharing with the Arab "brothers", many of whom lived in poverty.

So Saudi is trying to build a military alliance. Indeed, in Riyadh, he is being conceived not only as anti-Iranian, but also anti-Iraqi, because a powerful oil Iraq with its large population and large armed forces, whose Shiites make 2 / 3, also represents a threat to the security of the Saudi kingdom, they are convinced in Riyadh. So now Saudi special services are throwing in hundreds of millions of dollars to incite the speeches of Sunni radical organizations against the Shiite government in Baghdad. Apparently they understand that the Iraqis will always remember how the KSA for many years sought to weaken its northern neighbor, and, if possible, to dismember it along ethnic and religious lines. And Iraqis are unlikely to forgive. And if Iraq and Iran unite on the platform of countering the aggressive Wahhabi-Sunni attack on them, then Saudi Arabia will definitely not be good enough. In Syria, she has actually lost. So Saudi rulers of the allies are looking for among the monarchies of Arabia that are similar in their political structure and are even ready to make a deal with Israel.

Only it is unlikely that anything will come of this, especially since the United States is significantly changing its attitude towards countries that rely on Islamic radicals and even terrorists from al-Qaeda and other extremist organizations. In recent days, a fierce war has been unfolding in Iraq between the Sunni terrorist underground, financed by the Saudis, and the troops of the central government. Not only armored vehicles were thrown to suppress the militants in the 4 Sunni provinces of western and central Iraq aviation. And although government troops are suffering heavy losses, even the other day, even the general close to the prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki, who was the commander of the 7th division, has already destroyed many centers of terrorist gangs.


Now the main battles in the Sunni-Shiite confrontation, inflamed by Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, have moved from Syria to Iraq. But there everything should end, and the defeat of extremists and terrorists, who are brought up by Riyadh. Unless KSA suddenly suicide, provoking a joint aggression with Israel against Iran. In this case, the entire geopolitical map of the region will be redrawn, and Saudi itself will fall into several quasi-states or enclaves, just as in Bahrain, the Shiites will take power into their own hands. But I want to believe that after all the Saudi rulers will find the strength to give up adventures.

      After Volgograd, it became clear to everyone that these offspring of camels would end badly.

      After two bandar trips to Putin, it seems that the United States is throwing Saudis specifically and on all fronts.

      Honestly, I doubt that the very Saudis would decide on terrorist attacks in Russia after Bandar's rash statement in the Kremlin (the fact of which is not confirmed or refuted).

      But after the first meeting, the second followed, exactly after the pig that the United States had planted on the Saudis with Syria and separately with Iran, and already at it they discussed not "threats of terrorist attacks", but quite material things in the form of the geopolitical ROOF of the Saudis after their quarrel USA, represented by the Russian Federation naturally. This is what the United States could not forgive them, and here bang! Volgograd !!! And everyone is sure that the Saudis are to blame for everything and that they should not be covered, but rather bombed. Gambit, comrades Arabs!
      To hell with you, two allies with the Russian Federation or by whom else, now they have fallen upon Israel ... Only I had a thought that Israel is also an interested party in this matter?

      So what?
      United States (and Israel) Bandar is sent to Putin with terrorist threats, if we do not remove the veto from the Security Council resolution, he (Bandar) is sent to his ass, Syria’s bombing is canceled, the United States includes Plan B and begins to be friends with Iran, which Israel and the SA do not like, Bandar decides to go to the Russian Federation and apologize, and at the same time ask for forgiveness, Israel understands that the United States is friends with Iran, and the SA can make friends with the Russian Federation, and Israel can only masturbate and then the first explosion in Volgograd comes in handy, which removes all questions about that organized the next two. Checkmate.

      The SA has graters from the USA and graters from the Russian Federation and it goes to Israel, and God bless them with the States.

        not one I find myself getting along in this whole Saudi story. and there are a lot of suspicious moments. let me specifically point out some.
        1. The media somehow united all the jihadists into Wahhabis alone. and who we have wahi-pralna, KSA. while no one says about the vile policy of Qatar, which poured tens of billions of usd in its salafs, and it was Qatar that harbored Yandarbiev, failed the gas OPEC project and beat our ambassador and much more
        2. The media amicably discussing how the BBS arrived and threatened the GDP. some Frenchmen were the first to give this "leak". so far, neither the KSA nor the Russian Federation has officially commented on the meeting.
        3. It has become fashionable to praise the IRI, which is why the Iranians are better than the Saudis, I do not understand. Russia is a country with a Sunni ummah, Shiites (if you do not take the newcomers of Azerbaijan) among Muslims as bananas in Antarctica, and generally somehow do not go to Hajj to Tehran every year.
        4. VVP and BBS have a long and rather trusting relationship, considering a purely selfish issue, BBS is only a "manager", not a beneficiary, why would BBS spoil relations with VVP, which does not give up its own people, but does not forgive betrayal either.
        5. finally geography. A certain mythical pipeline to the coast of the Mediterranean Sea as a cause of the war in Syria is needed by the KSA as a hare, an iPhone, different from Iran and Qatar.

        in short, somehow it’s muddy somehow, I don’t see a motive for the blatant provocation of the conflict with the Russian Federation at KSA. but there are ears of the USA and the South Caucasus, (well, Israel, as without it) - this is a cut of the KSA on the map of the Big Middle East, which, incidentally, is said to be hanging on the wall in the office of the BBC as a reminder ....

          You forget one thing: the Iran-Iraq war. The fighting took place just in the territories where 100% of the Iraqi Shiites lived. But Iran could not capture and hold these territories. The city of Basra (100% of the Shiites) stormed 5 times. But they didn’t take it.

            As for the Iran-Iraq war ... After all, the main idea was to export the Islamic revolution - just like Trotsky’s. But the military training of the Iranian units left much to be desired. It got to the point that when the Persians went on the attack - in waves - the Iraqis put guns and howitzers at direct fire - and fired, there even the barrels were parked - such was the intensity of the fire.

      Only if Saudi Arabia is left alone will it help the militants in Syria with redoubled energy. The civil war in Syria fetters not only Assad. It is important that the war is a definite problem for Iraq and Iran, as it creates an unstable situation on their borders. Indeed, all this infection can creep to them. It turns out that there is no war — war is needed.

    It is strange that the author did not mention such a factor of instability among the Saudis as illegal migration. The number of migrant workers they have is such that last year they took it very seriously. The law introduced mandatory registration, but all those who did not pass, again according to the law, in emigration drives - camps with subsequent forced expulsion.

    they do not dig anything, they act like the Americans - according to the same principle, it is not advantageous for the Saudis to have strong states on their borders while they are not there - the kingdom remains a regional power, which, coupled with significant capital, allows you to export your version of Islam (Wahhabism)

    The boomerang returned that the Americans launched, together with the Saudis against the USSR and its allies, the creation of al-Qaeda and Islamic fanatics turned against themselves. It was only too late for the Americans to hide from the Saudis and pretend that they are not evil should be punished. And the Saudis should fully to feel all the charms of your politics.

    Shiites, Sunnis ... it's like choosing the lesser of two evils. Ramzan is like "our" Chechen, but what's the point? Unless only blood flows not like a river, but just a stream. In exchange for an indemnity.

    And if Iraq and Iran unite on a platform to counter the aggressive Wahhabi-Sunni attack on them, then Saudi Arabia will certainly not be greeted. In Syria, she has actually lost.

    As for Syria, it is too early to say anything. The war continues there.
    But the union of Iran and Iraq is generally an idea that was initially impossible. Purely ethnically. Arabs and Persians do not digest each other.

      History knows many strange alliances. In the modern world, if you really need it, everything is possible, give only motivation. Bonuses from the collapse of Saudi Arabia can be significant, and they will always have time to destroy each other.
      The only question is whether they need to ruin Saudi Arabia and whether they will be allowed to do so. Any war with Arabia will strengthen Russia's position as a supplier of energy to Europe, especially if Iraq or Iran participate in it. Therefore, neither the union, nor, most likely, the war will not happen. The owner will not allow it.

    The Saudis see themselves as megastrategists and inspirers of a "war of a new type" ... These are Khodorkovsky's Middle Eastern spills and with global and totalitarian plans for the world order ... Only if the world has been tears from camels for 1000 years, then you can't put it back on a camel .. .And the Saudis, with their virtual oil economy, should really be mentally transformed, and not just buy crusts from Princeton ...

    Good article, thanks to the author. It's nice when Saudi Arabia has problems too. Maybe we will be calmer.

    Saudi Arabia can be buried only in oil, and preferably burning. Or so that all hard workers leave. The option is to remain without the support of the United States and Israel. In the meantime, this is not in the future, it will be necessary to reckon with these Oil-Reverbearers.

    SA has many problems and they live only because the world economy needs oil.
    As soon as they find an alternative to oil or a replacement for SA in the supply of cheap oil, the Saudis will be merged as the others merged.
    The Saudis want to put in place - letting Iran print its oil reserves.
    Time will tell - maybe the Saudis will realize that they are completely overgrown.
    The low cost of oil production from the Saudis gives them a big trump card in this game. And it’s easy to bust other oil producers.

    Many have claims to the Saudis. The United States decided to slowly knock it off from their holiday, and that’s hapless to them. But how will you have to pay the bills. If Syria persists, the Saudis will be completely sad, since Iran already has an ally in Syria. goes into the arms of Iran.

      You do not need to touch Qatar yet, in 2022 there will be a World Cup. Qatari want to spend it in the winter, at this time of year they have +25 degrees. When will we watch the championship again in winter? So let them live for now. wassat

    Of course, the SA is involved in the explosions in our territory, with money and big, but the main role here, in my opinion, is played by the Turks. They have been gnawing by Transcaucasia and Crimea with the Odessa region for a long time. And to create kypizh in Russia and to tamper these territories under the guise - this is the upper class. angry

    How do you like the idea that the SA was created by the hands of the BR (who doesn’t know the British Retrolium, which easily paid for the accident in the Gulf of Mexico (I can clarify _turned the Gulf Stream))?

    Next - Do you think the Yankees are idiots in order to invest money (I’ll add from myself - converting into "normal gold" - this is about 20% of world production)

    Sir, you are weakening in analytics. Or do you have other goals?

    An interesting duet is not drawn, the Americans "kick out" the most stable (economically and militarily) Arab countries, but after a while the Saudis play the role of such "collectors" of the Arab peoples ... not too subtly and very dangerous for them.

    Crazed by stray oil and gas dollars, the Saudis seek to squeeze all the countries of the Arab region under themselves.
    They are opposed by the Persians of Iran, uniting all those who disagree.
    Now the Saudis began to receive a "boomerang" from al-Qaeda militants who get a bummer in Egypt, from Shiites and Kurds in Iraq, Syria and return to their maternity hospital to ask why they were born if they were not provided with the future.
    Hence the early military alliances that the Arabs do not need and the collapse of political support from Washington and Brussels.
    In throwing extreme political forces come together. Hence the rapprochement of the KSA with Israel, and the provocation with the acquisition of the atomic bomb from Pakistan.

    US authorities immediately after the attacks of September 11.09 declared war on terror and al-Qaeda itself. As well as their allies. This is a step of the Power, which is ready for the sake of its citizens to use force methods with enemies.
    Why does the Russian government, knowing its enemy and its main ally and financier, do nothing. Why not make a claim to the Saudis. Indeed, this would greatly enhance the authority of the Russian authorities around the world, and especially within the country
