Military Review

Middle Eastern Front. Part two

28
Four years of disaster in the Middle East have changed the actual map of the region beyond recognition. Syria, Iraq and Yemen ceased to exist, breaking up into separate hostile territories. Iran and Saudi Arabia are preparing for a possible war with each other, and Islamists of all stripes easily cross state borders in any direction. Russia looks at all this with concern. And the point here is not that our country has access to the Caspian Sea to Iran and a small naval base in Syria - if the situation finally goes out of hand, the Caucasus and Central Asia will be flaunted. The latter is particularly interesting from the standpoint of the destructive impact on Russia and China at the same time — geographically, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are most suited for such purposes. For readers who follow developments in these countries over the past couple of months, it is obvious that the movement towards destabilization has already begun.



Otherwise, a major regional war may prove beneficial not only to the United States, but also to Russia. Now the Americans who provoked the conflict face a rather curious dilemma. If the Kingdom of Saudis seriously and for a long time enters the war in Yemen by ground forces, the gold and foreign exchange reserves of Riyadh predictably quickly go to decline. War is extremely expensive and always has been. This means that in order to replenish the reserves, relatively high oil prices will have to be returned, which is already playing into Russia's hands. That Russia itself, which the United States has been desperately trying to punish for Crimea and Donbass for a whole year. However, Moscow’s interest in the conflict is not limited to the economy alone.

The geopolitical moment is also quite obvious. Certainly, it is Saudi Arabia that today is the most hostile Asian state of Russia. Proof of? How much you want. Support for the Mujahideen in Afghanistan; the collapse of oil prices, which caused an economic catastrophe in the Soviet Union (and similar actions in our time against the Russian Federation); supply Chechen militants weapons, money and mercenaries; the spread of Wahhabism and terrorism in Russia; the transfer of Russians from Ichkeria to Saudi slavery and much, much more. It is clear that with a significant weakening of Saudi Arabia, the world system of Wahhabism will collapse, just as with the collapse of the Soviet Union, communist underground fighters around the world ceased to exist. On the whole, the sudden Middle Eastern front opens a window of tremendous opportunities for Russia with the right foreign policy.

The required minimum steps have already been taken. On Monday, April 13, Russia canceled the embargo on the supply of C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran. The embargo was introduced by President Medvedev in 2010 and was negatively received by the Russian public. Now this annoying error will be fixed. Iranian Defense Minister General Hossein Dehgan arrived in Moscow on Wednesday and the goal of his three-day visit is clear. Tehran urgently needs a weapon so that by the time a possible war begins with the Saudis and (or) Israel be ready for any development of events. The issue of time is extremely important here - C-300 must be deployed before the outbreak of hostilities, when an international moratorium on the supply of weapons to belligerent countries will inevitably be declared. Iran already has X-NUMX complexes “Tor-М26” and 1 “Armor-С10”, and “300th” will complete the picture, providing defense on long-range borders. Now in total, the Persians can create a layered air defense system around a single object. For example, a large city or a nuclear power plant. Against the attack of hundreds of airplanes, this, of course, will not save, but the attackers will lose a lot of damage to the first wave.

May Moscow help Tehran with another kind. Literally on the eve of the start of the bombing of Yemen, 10 in March 2015, the Iranian frigate Damavand, which is an example of the latest achievements of the military-technical thought of this country, entered service. While the ship serves in the Caspian Sea, however, Russia may well offer the friendly power to use the Volga-Don Canal to ship the ship to the Black Sea with a possible stop in the Crimea, and then through the Turkish straits (if Ankara does not resist) move to replenish supplies to the Russian point of security in Tartus, from where the Red Sea is within reach. A small squadron can go the same way, and the Arab coalition will eventually get an unpleasant surprise in the form of a sudden increase in the Iranian Navy in the region.

For Riyadh, such an obvious (and unpleasant) alignment has long been no secret, and the Kingdom is trying to put pressure on Russia through direct public attacks, both through its own diplomats and through the representatives of neighboring puppet regimes. Riyad Yasin, the foreign minister of the pro-Saudi government of Yemen, has already accused Russia of delivering weapons to the rebels, to which the Russian Foreign Ministry replied that our country does not interfere in the conflict and does not intend to do so. Although the support of the Hussites would be quite consistent with the national interests of Russia, such a move requires a certain amount of independence and courage from the Kremlin to make decisions, which under the current leadership can hardly be expected - even Ukrainian events showed that the concept of strategic thinking is as alien there as radio message from a parallel world.



So, apparently, Iran will have to cover Russia from the south. Rather, he will naturally cover himself, but for the Russians his activity at this stage is a great blessing. Under the noise of the struggle with the Islamic State, Tehran is slowly but surely fixed on the Shiite part of Iraq, which 15 hasn’t dared to even dream about years ago. These territories, in turn, are conveniently located near the Shiite eastern lands of Saudi Arabia.

In the Yemeni direction, war hung in the air - literally. Bombing has been going on for several weeks already and they don’t bring much military effect. The Arab coalition will either have to invade ground units, which no one wants, or completely curtail the fighting, which is unacceptable in terms of image. Further air terror will only lead to an increase in civilian casualties, which will naturally increase the flow of people willing to take revenge on the aggressor on the ground. And a long, poorly guarded border will not be a serious obstacle for truly determined people.

In the near future, the Saudis will have to make a concrete decision. It is difficult to say how it will be, but the probability of the introduction of troops into Yemen is quite high. Delay threatens to spread the conflict to the territory of Saudi Arabia itself. The introduction of troops also promises a protracted and bloody guerrilla war, which for an arbitrarily long time is completely unpredictable in terms of the final result.

      but if Iran mates with the saudis

      Oil prices skyrocket! The Persian Gulf will turn into a battlefield, and there will be no talk of any peaceful oil trade. If the UN imposes sanctions on both countries, the price of oil will skyrocket. But this is unlikely, the Americans will not abandon their sixes, then Russia will be able to supply arms to Iran. Everything will be like in the good old days of the Cold War.

        At the expense of mediocrity, I doubt it, and at the expense of the Allies, too. The policy of the White House, planned in recent years many years earlier, a war for states outside the states themselves is the only way out, and if regimes that nurtured by states fall, but the main problem of the United States is solved, then it will be so.

"

    The author is definitely a strategist. At the level of the president - no less. And decides who fits and who does not, from a height ... Bird's eye view. However, it seems to the author that supplying weapons to a Yemen overloaded with weapons is rather silly. And the fact that there somehow flashed in time - does not suggest the author's thoughts? Or does he need a hint? From Western media? VVP did not throw thunder and lightning from the rostrum, did not threaten "Kuz'kina's mother" - therefore - a weakling?

      I will support and continue.
      with a significant weakening of Saudi Arabia, the world system of Wahhabism will collapse, just as the communist underground all over the world ceased to exist with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

      Absolute misunderstanding of the essence of Wahhabism, and banal - the organization of the underground. All gangs, vilayats and others are quite independent. Ideology? And for this we have pro-Chinese Pakistan with the Hakkania madrasah. So without Saudi Arabia, nothing will end.

        The author is right. Without outside support, no underground can exist for a long time. A lot of examples!

        But the strategic incompetence of the Kremlin is visible in almost all directions. What did we have a year ago and what did we get? And whether the Donbass wants to become part of Russia after numerous betrayals, is still a big question.

          1) Let me ask you what is the expression of "the Kremlin's strategic incompetence in / in Ukraine"? and so, in my opinion, they were dragging on the mantra with the "brotherly people" for too long ... it was necessary, even with the collapse of the union, to put "brothers" like Ukraine, Georgia, etc. in current conditions - market prices (especially for energy), entry to the Russian market only for some goods (and not as half of the business in / in Ukraine - they bought goods in Europe or China and sold them to Russia with a markup and without duties, hang on " brothers "the due part of the debt of the USSR, etc., then everything would be different. But now? Crimea expressed a desire to be a part of the Russian Federation? Please. Donbass sat and watched who will take it? And now it has what it has (although people have nothing to do with , but by and large the redistribution of power and zones of influence - listen to the leadership of the Donbass - they, in principle, do not mind being part of Ukraine, but on different conditions.or I don't understand correctly?) so why should the Russian Federation go there? Voentorg - no problem ... and open war ??
          2) besides the crying of Yaroslavna (all is lost !!!) - what strategic significance does Ukraine have for Russia? only as a gasket between the Russian Federation and NATO ... no more. more distance - more flying time for missiles. and that’s it. BUT ... no one is really going to fight, and Europe is not even ready to die for Ukraine, even in theory, what can they say for practice ... again - Voentorg (on the other hand) - with pleasure ... but money - forward
          3) and if Russia whom to come to the territory of Novorosiya? How many people are waiting for her to come as a liberator, and what are their hopes for her? and how many will see the occupier in Russia?

          What are the Chinese doing there? Sorry, you don’t need to be a specialist to see how the Pakistani army and elite caved in under China.
          Saudis, in my opinion, are a pleasant and necessary, but not a mandatory financial component. In the end, Pakistanis have nuclear weapons not from Saudi Arabia, but from our yellow comrades, the Arabs only give money and oil. All this outrage is happening on the territory of China's interests. However, the Saudis act in their own right way - they need to sell their oil and support their royal home with money.
          All their expenses are investments, both in Afghanistan and in the Caucasus - these wars are aimed at the spread of Wahhabism, for the subsequent use of the "occupied" territories. But without China / America, and now skewed towards the former, they are nobody and nothing; Makka and Medina will not feed, and hemorrhoids with them are as much as with oil.

        Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that Israel has the right to supply weapons to Ukraine in response to Russia's supply of S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran, but such a decision would, he said, be "counterproductive."
        "This is the choice of the Israeli leadership. It has the right to do what it considers appropriate. I think it is counterproductive when it comes to lethal weapons," the Russian leader said in an interview with the Vesti on Saturday program.
        Speaking about the supply of S-300 to Iran, Putin declared that these weapons are exclusively defensive in nature and in no way undermines the defense capability of Israel.
        In turn, the Iranian Minister of Defense, General Hussein Dehgan, said that the issue of supplying the S-300 air defense system had been resolved, only the timing and price remained to be discussed.
        "The situation with the exchange rate has changed, it may even be necessary to replace some parts of the complex, but it will still be the same S-300 complex," said Vladimir Kozhin, aide to the President of the Russian Federation.
        Recall that on April 13, Putin lifted the ban on S-300 exports to Iran, which has been in force since September 2010 in the form of a unilateral strengthening of the sanctions regime, as determined by UN Security Council resolution No. 1929.

    The involvement of Iran in the war is fraught with the most unpredictable consequences. This is about the same as with Ukraine. In Ukraine, they are trying to draw Russia into the war, in the Middle East, Iran. Does the author think that the plan is the same? To weaken these two countries and make them outcasts internationally?

    So far, Russia has successfully resisted drawing it into the hot phase of the war. Iran must act in exactly the same way. So no war in the Middle East should be allowed. It is in the security interests of both Russia and Iran. It is about physical security. On the existence of the states themselves. One can’t even talk about any pluses of the Russian Federation and Iran. Spit on oil prices. This is such a trifle, which is not even worth remembering.

    Oil prices are reflected in the ruble exchange rate. But it is necessary to support Iran. After all, there have been no wars in the United States for 200 years, and this proves the success of their policy (I believe - for now). Why not help Iran technically secure itself from possible air strikes and unofficially through the Houthis (or whoever else) break through a corridor to friendly Syria, and then with the hands of the jointly ousted ISIS (or whoever is fighting against Syria there, and ISIS in general a terrorist organization) to unleash a war with the Emirates. Russia, Iran, and even Syria remain on the sidelines. Arguments are "in the order of delirium", but nevertheless the S-300 are sent to Iran, and for money.

      The policy of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, and not the price of oil, affects the ruble exchange rate. The price of oil plays a role but not the same as it is attributed to. Oil export is about 15-20%.

      It’s elementary, there’s nothing to touch us. In Europe, NATO has no armies except Turkey (which is not going to go on a hike). In the current situation, even on the Belarusian border it is weak to wiggle, not like ours. That decorative antediluvian hundred tanks unloaded in the Baltic states, flightless Polish destroyers or the Romanian air force that are incapable of finances capable of supporting MIG29 do not cause anything but laughter. There is no conscription in the EU, which means there is no mobresource, armies are suitable for going over three seas to the Papuans, and not for a European war. , everything can be returned back, to restore the army, but it takes time.

        All these conflicts in the Middle East and the so-called Big East are the work of the United States and Israel, which want to "undermine" the situation there with the help of terrorist gangs and, in the end, send these maniacs to Russia.
        Thus, they want to "punish" us for an independent policy, programs for the modernization of the army and industry.
        The "dream" of the United States and Israel is that we would be in a "fragmented" state of half-life, as in the days of the "drunkard" of Yeltsin, and the country would be ruled by a "gang" in a sort of "seven-bank" as in the 90s.

          The United States and Israel are waging a secret war against Syria, Iraq and Iran, trying to "destroy" these countries, and subsequently Russia.
          UN unveils facts about ISIS and Israeli army
          A number of recent United Nations reports (see, for example, S / 2013 / 345, S / 2014 / 401 or S / 2014 / 859) indicate that the Israeli armed forces (IDF) regularly contact with members of the so-called Islamic state, starting in May 2013 year.
          So, the version of Israel's hidden support for the project of the so-called “Islamic state” has received new evidence, and the events of recent months are also increasingly clearly indicating this. Suffice it to recall the recent raid by fighters of the Israeli armed forces that attacked military facilities near the Damascus airport, as well as the killing of Iranian General Mohammed Ali Allahdadi on January 18 in Syria also as a result of Israeli air strikes. Do not forget about the facts of direct ISIS funding from the United States as part of their ongoing campaign to overthrow Bashar al-Assad - these cases are not only well-known, but also officially documented. It is curious that at the beginning of the American operation against ISIS, Israel was very reluctant to support this initiative, recognizing it as a mistake, but today the Israeli leadership realized the full extent of the threat from Syria and Iran, which comes from their increased military power and rapidly increasing political influence in the Middle East region.

              And small excerpts from the speech (IV Moscow Conference on International Security):
              Minister of Defense of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Brigadier General Hossein Dehgan
              Today I have to declare with great regret that the states supporting ISIS and other takfiri groups whose programs in Syria and Iraq have not achieved the desired results, instead of reforming their previous behavior, are engaged in special educational, reorganization and logistics planning in order to redirect these forces over time to Afghanistan, the Caucasus, Central Asia, India, Western China and even to Europe.
              The new strategy of America and the Zionist regime and the unconscious, but deliberate actions of a number of reactionary countries of the region indicate the existence of a program to use the potential of takfirist terrorist groups such as ISIS, the Taliban, etc. to create a political balance in matters of security and violation of the geopolitics of the region. These countries are trying to compensate for their political and military defeats by unleashing indirect wars and giving them ideological and tribal coloring. I warn that indifference to this purposeful behavior that stems from their strategic perceptual mistakes will lead everyone to a tragic and endless process. Independent and free states must, through cooperation and the creation of a resistance front, actively resist these ever-increasing demands to suppress all those who want to use force, weapons, crimes and mass killings to achieve their illegitimate goals, and prevent these processes through military interventions and terrorist support reached their illegitimate goals.

              I’ll only add that I’ve read as before about the likelihood that Iran will accumulate a fleet in the Caspian by agreement with Russia - in order to transfer it through the Russian river system to the Black Sea at the right time and then - or at least blackmail opponents with this opportunity

            The United States and Israel are waging a secret war against Syria, Iraq and Iran, trying to "destroy" these countries, and subsequently Russia.
            UN unveils facts about ISIS and Israeli army
            A number of recent United Nations reports (see, for example, S / 2013 / 345, S / 2014 / 401 or S / 2014 / 859) indicate that the Israeli armed forces (IDF) regularly contact with members of the so-called Islamic state, starting in May 2013 year.
            So, the version of Israel's hidden support for the project of the so-called “Islamic state” has received new evidence, and the events of recent months are also increasingly clearly indicating this. Suffice it to recall the recent raid by fighters of the Israeli armed forces that attacked military facilities near the Damascus airport, as well as the killing of Iranian General Mohammed Ali Allahdadi on January 18 in Syria also as a result of Israeli air strikes. Do not forget about the facts of direct ISIS funding from the United States as part of their ongoing campaign to overthrow Bashar al-Assad - these cases are not only well-known, but also officially documented. It is curious that at the beginning of the American operation against ISIS, Israel was very reluctant to support this initiative, recognizing it as a mistake, but today the Israeli leadership realized the full extent of the threat from Syria and Iran, which comes from their increased military power and rapidly increasing political influence in the Middle East region.

            Another batch of fairy tales from a quilted jacket. The UN has long turned into a corrupt organization and churns out resolutions for money. "Investigations" of this kind are carried out without leaving the table, bureaucrats receiving bribes from the owners of the quilted jacket.

      In the Caspian, we also have new corvettes + Astrakhan training ground with all the "" stash "" + aviation of South Ossetia = a good amount in the end !!! But if Iran grapples with the Saudis ------ this will not seem like a little !!!! Here is the Persian Gulf, and Bab El Strait and whatever you wish will be on fire ...

    Dear, an interesting article, but apart from the oil price of Russia, the main interest is not the "spreading" of groups to the borders, first of neighboring states (which is already happening), so any action in this theater also concerns us (not directly ), so it comes out providing assistance to Syria, Iran, we are building long-range defense of our borders

    are you crazy? Zion needs peace with all its neighbors we don’t have territorial or religious influxes to them all the more so to Russia, the Vedas are essentially the same Islamic fundamentalists that threaten Zion and they threaten both Russia and the other way around or do you think that the Chechen separatists will not be in Israel do the same in Zion as in Russia or naobart our Islamic jihad getting into the Caucasus sanet Orthodox jihad?

      Really. So the Golan Heights have already become Israeli? Is the Lebanon’s regularly shifted border too? And the territory of Palestine, which Israel continues to cut back and Arabs to survive from there, is also all Israeli?

      It is even better to say so: Israel has one big argument with the overwhelming majority of neighbors: the neighbors do not recognize the existence of Israel at all.

      Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that Israel has the right to supply weapons to Ukraine in response to Russia's supply of S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran, but such a decision would, he said, be "counterproductive."

      Let’s, let’s deliver weapons to Ukraine, so you cause such a surge of anti-Semitism in Russia that you won’t see enough.
      In the DNI and LC, you are not very well treated, but will simply be hated.
      Novorossiya does not want Jewish Cossacks to rule
      The anti-Semitic theme was raised by Alexander Zakharchenko at a press conference in Donetsk broadcast on the Russian TV channel "Russia-24". First, he opposes the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko to the Ukrainian people, who in the end "will force Poroshenko to do what is beneficial for the Ukrainians."
      Further Zakharchenko explains that "Cossacks have never been ruled by not exactly those people ... people who have never run with a saber in their lives." Here comes the leader of the Luhansk separatists Igor Plotnitsky: "Let them even watch the song" When the Jewish Cossacks rose up, "he recommends Poroshenko and other" non-Cossacks ".
      "Yes, this is far from Jewish Cossacks, but miserable representatives of a very large and great people ... They certainly did not rule the Cossacks," Zakharchenko puts a dot on the i.

    According to the author, the hot spot near Russia is new prospects for the country. In my opinion, if someone is not good at calculating and does not see all the options, then it's time to learn history.

    And the author is a stupid person, it seems ...
    In the Ukrainian war, the Russian leadership very consistently defends the interests of Russia, and not part of the "hurray-patriots." It is the same with the Hawsites: if the author sees no problems in their open support, this only speaks of his blinkeredness. One word - iksperd ...
