Putin's "Star Hour"

113
The coalition, led by the United States, did not achieve the expected results in the fight against the "Islamic State." Meanwhile, Russia and Iran are seeking to join forces with the Syrian government opposing the terrorists. If a new alliance takes place and if Russia and Iran overcome Islamists, the United States will lose its ability to influence the situation in the Middle East. Experts even speak about Putin’s coming “star hour”.


Putin's "Star Hour"


Fox News's national security analyst Kathleen McFarland (in the past, in the times of Ronald Reagan, she was deputy assistant secretary of defense) spoke on the theme of the “coalition” opposing the US-led IG, and the actions that Russia and Iran. Translation of the interview appeared on the website of the TV channel "RT".

According to the expert, the White House, arguing that Russia could join the coalition of the 60 states leading the fight against the "Islamic State", is engaged in "empty talk." Another thing is Putin.

“This campaign against the“ Islamic State ”, which is designed to crush, destroy and weaken it, fails completely. And who is aware of this? Vladimir Putin. It is his finest hour. In the Middle East, he is doing what he was trying to do in Ukraine, that is, to gain a foothold in the region. He knows that our union is helpless, that it does not work, and he uses it. ”


Grozny Putin "reverses 40 years stories"For which the US" ousted Russia from this region. " The analyst also notes that "a new coalition is emerging between Syria, Russia and Iran."

But can Russia, Iran and Syria defeat the Islamic State?

McFarland thinks that “ultimately the battle will end with this.” Now the Russian side is uniting with Iran, from which sanctions are being lifted. Russia plans to sell Iran weapon, and the Iranian general Kasem Suleymani recently came to Moscow.

However, the question of much greater significance for McFarland is not the victory over the “IG”, but the further fate of the native America. She believes that it is “not important” whether Russia, Iran and Syria will crush terrorists, and it is important where the United States will be. In her opinion, the United States is already “somewhere else”; The United States no longer take part in events in the Middle East.

It is curious that at the same time, McFarland (an expert with government experience!) Further states that in the Middle East "you will not understand anything." On the other hand, she cannot dismantle the policy of her native state: “The United States is allegedly struggling with the“ Islamic State ”, but in fact it does not.” According to McFarland, Washington shifts “all responsibility” to Iran. But if the White House really wanted to fight against IG, it would have armed Kurds and Sunni tribes in the Iraqi province of Anbar. However, Obama is not doing anything, and in the meantime Iran is taking over the reins. As a result, Iran will enter into an alliance with Russia, the two countries will support Assad in Syria. And who will pay for it? USA: they "will lose influence in the region."

This region is so worried about the expert because there is oil there. McFarland says bluntly: “Think about what geographical region we are talking about. What do Russia and Iran have in common, what controls this region, as does Russia? World oil market.

In addition, sea lanes are also important: “We are talking about the Mediterranean Sea, and they control it all the way to Iran. This means that they control the Middle East, the region called the Levant, and then the Arabian Peninsula and the Persian Gulf. ”

Apparently, such a change in the geostrategic situation while strengthening the positions of Russia and Iran is so unbearable for McFarland that it suggests that the White House urgently show determination and unleash almost the Third World War:

“This is what I would say if I were an adviser to the president. First, let's restore the defense of America first. Let's give Ukraine a weapon, say: "Here, we will not fight for you, but we will help you in your struggle with Russia." The Kurds want to fight the "Islamic State" - we will help them too. I would walk across the world map and answer the question: “Who are our friends and how can we help them? It is not necessary for us to fight ourselves. ”


Interesting, we note, is the "defense of America"! “It’s not necessary for us to fight ourselves” is obviously the defensive principle of modern times.

Of course, “to fight for yourself” is an idea that is not popular in America today. The Americans were already fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. And indirect intervention in Syria, the encouragement of the “opposition” and the “Arab spring” in general, stimulated the chaos in the Middle East and partly contributed to the emergence of the “IS”. In Ukraine, with the intervention of the United States instead of democracy, the “European version” of Somalia turned out: oligarchy, corruption, amateur republics, banditry, inflation, huge public debts with the complete helplessness of the new government. Apparently, the main achievement of “euromaidan” was Klitschko’s choice as mayor of Kiev. But the showcases of democracy from Ukraine did not work, it turned out another failure and disintegration, and even optimist Saakashvili in his Odessa post is more upset than happy.

By the way, it’s not for nothing that an American expert asks: “Who are our friends?” Saakashvili and Klitschko are your friends. And the likes of them all over the world. And your McCain in Syria has friends from IG. And al-Qaeda was once a great American friend.

At the end of the interview, McFarland attacked Putin.

“As for Vladimir Putin, I would explain to him the following:“ You remain in power only because your people live in the world you created. We will destroy the cyber wall, and they will see what is happening in the rest of the world. And then we will see how popular you are. ”


Than how and when cyberwall will collapse, McFarland did not specify. Perhaps, with the weapons that the United States will eventually give Ukraine so that it goes to fight the self-proclaimed republics and at the same time go to war for the Crimea. The expert, however, should understand that far from the entire US Congress is in favor of providing military assistance to Ukraine, Obama is not a supporter of this idea either, and if Republican Trump comes to power in the White House, the question of Crimea (and Ukraine) can get away with State Department agenda. There is, however, a chance to choose a president in the United States named Hillary Clinton with her “wow” and “Assad must leave.” However, in any case, Western Europe, primarily Germany, will be the counterbalance to the aggressive policy of Washington in Ukraine. Angela Merkel has already been to Washington on the Ukrainian issue, and can repeat her visit. The European Union is already crazy about refugees, and he does not need Ukrainian Syria by the side.

Retreat, reducing the degree of his "hegemony" - the surest thing for the United States. Managers call this a "pruning strategy." Military budgets are being reduced, the number of military personnel is decreasing, and corresponding measures are planned for a full ten years. With such cuts, trying to live as you did before cuts, and helping “friends” around the world does not seem reasonable.

Today, the Arab media speak about Russia with respect, and about the United States - almost with disdain. For example, Al-Arabia writes that Moscow does not hide its support for Bashar al-Assad. And he does not hide the supply of weapons and military equipment to Syria. Russia has not changed its position on Syria, says the browser. Moreover, it is now ready not only to preserve the current government in Damascus and to help it in every way, but also to promote the formation of a different political approach, implying partnership with the Syrian and regional forces to fight terrorism.

But the Western powers, including the United States, Great Britain, France, have changed their position, even if they are talking about Assad being deprived of power. The leaders of these states, in the opinion of Al-Arabia, are ready to "reconcile" even with the support of Assad by Moscow, Tehran and Beijing.

In a word, Eastern analysts (unlike American analysts) clearly understand that the United States leaves the game in the Middle East, and Russia comes there, which will certainly help Syria and create a coalition with its Syrian ally Iran.

          Yes, flies are all. It does not matter what Putin offers, his opponents ("partners") do not hear him - and DO NOT WANT to hear.
          And they do not jerk there. Just another problem arose.
          ps Regarding Vanga, she also said that Russia would rise, but only Siberia would remain from it (beyond the Urals) .- One can be comforted by the fact that nothing will remain from others.)

                  One can argue with this opinion. The most difficult resistance, just the same partisan and that it can be invisible. Today's humanism will not allow to wet all civilians in order to eradicate ISIS. Fanaticism is very strong in the East and people possessed by the idea can turn mountains. The Caucasus was smashed to ruins, but in the desert there are really no buildings.

                    And then we do not know what is happening in the world, as if we were blind kittens. Here the Americans come and open our eyes. A sort of psakization of Russia. No, of course, there are smart guys there, but the American elite, which is now taxing, instead of studying in due time, sniffed cocaine and sang it with beer. Therefore, they confuse Austria with Australia, Slovakia and Slovenia and sincerely believe that only they live correctly, and the rest of the nations should be made happy by force.

As for Putin, it’s not for you to determine the terms of his presidency but the people of Russia, who saw 25 years of your shit democracy what is happening in the world, and how do you USA impose this dermocracy in states that you do not like.

        In order to end ISIS, a large-scale land operation is needed. Here a couple of other battalion tactical groups with aviation support can not do.
        Or do you think that the Syrian army and Iraqi Shiites are able to effectively attack ISIS? what
        The Americans are afraid that Russia will be fucked up not only by ISIS, but also by all kinds of terror supported by the West, Al Nusra and the Free Syrian Army. Then the Syrian army opposing them will really strengthen - in view of the weakening of the enemy. bully

          I personally think so. Let’s say the Kurds are quite capable of fighting and are fighting longer than others and very successfully. If the Turks hadn’t beat them in the back, ISIS would have been doubly sweet. And if you still help the little one ... In addition, you somehow miss another player - Iran. If he connects as an adult, ISIS, I think, will scratch on foot through the Mediterranean Sea. I repeat - weaken Turkey (interest or distract with other problems), find contact with Israel (he has an interest, but he has no friends there). If there are allies, good weapons and methodology (plus work from the inside), there will be success.

And by the way Putin behaves on the Syrian issue, the United States does not shine here. By the decisiveness with which our president is committed to this struggle, it seems to me that we will not surrender Syria without a fight.

        I believe that Putin will go to the next election with a new “oprichnina” in the form of ONF. And with a crushing score, he will win these elections. How he will manage absolute power is not clear to me. It is unlikely that according to my plan: the Iron Curtain, nationalization, currency restrictions (in a nutshell). But I hope that at least partially.

      Our GBshny corporate joke used to go before:
      Keeper Keeper arrives in Kuev. And there Yusch Doksinus Holodorus asks him to drop gas prices. Choir Guardian Putmes (then) the second grit: "And you, Yushchimk, sweep!"
      Yusch, without a twinge of his eye, grit: "Vadimir Batkovich, become a rust stool on a stool!
      Keeper Keeper, essno asks, "What the hell?"
      Yu: Ibonezalezhnaya Ukraine is not and before whom does not kneel! "
      Now Barak Gulag pushes GDP onto a stool in the Traditional Oral Office, saying, either Asal must leave, or you, Mr Putin, should stand on the stool.
      In general, Assad will cover all the passages of Penty and the State Department - just reluctance to suck on his knees, and the requirement for the Choir of the Guardian to stand on a stool for yelling.

        What beautiful predictions ... However, they do not agree much with domestic political reality, so I am messing with a completely different option: Russia is seriously getting involved in the Syrian conflict. China sees that a lot of troops have left Russia and is delivering a treacherous blow to the back. Following him, NATO is drawn into a fight. Russia gets a war on three fronts: Syrian, in the Far East - Chinese and American, in the west - European. There will be mass heroism, but the forces are too unequal. Under the terms of the world, Russia will receive severe arms restrictions - in particular, they will take away the atomic one. Russia will be expelled from the UN with shame - not only from the Security Council, but also from the organization in general. America’s centuries-old dream of dismembering Russia will come true - China will take the Urals, Siberia and the continental Far East. Japan will take the island. The Astrakhan region will be turned into an independent republic Idel-Ural. Crimea and the Kuban will be given to Khlamin, the Kaliningrad region - to Poland. All Caucasian republics will unite in an independent republic of the Caucasus. The Leningrad Region will be made an independent republic of Ingermanlandia, which will immediately be admitted to the EU and NATO as a teaser for Russia, which, however, will not cancel the very high standard of living and great friendship of Ingermanlandia with the West. The entire European Arctic Ocean continental shelf will be taken away by the United States. Thus, Russia will be cut off from all the seas, making it the largest inland land.

      If they defeated Japan, they would not have disappeared. Like Russia, it would have won the Russo-Japanese War if it had not been forced into the infamous Portsmouth world. Too different economic potentials and resource bases. Another thing is that the Americans estimated their losses at one and a half million in a protracted war, which was supposed to last a few more years. And then we suddenly with our experience of the Great Patriotic War. And in fact, over the 22 of the day, the Japanese army on the mainland ceased to exist as a military force.

I can briefly describe it purely from the point of view bytovuhi, at first Ukraine ... Russia is there, time is wasting money nerves, of our military .. even vacationers, then they are sanctioning us, we are losing money products, production and technology! Then ISIS "oh Russia you must help, we ourselves can’t" ..Russia climbed in, losing money, equipment, resources again ... and possibly again its military! Well, what do you think, why is all this, and so that Russia could not 100% concentrate on raising its power in the world that GDP has begun to successfully carry out and some individuals in the State Department of State understand this perfectly! But ... I think Putin plays not just worse than the State Department ... he practically re-plays it, and knows what to do on the issue of Syria and ISIS !!!

        yes, the well-being of the people depends on foreign policy successes or failures. Gorbach and Yeltsin poured all that was possible - the people were a little tense, but after Georgia, whatever one may say better. Is this a paradox, huh?) Since the time of the pharaohs, it so happened that there is a direct regularity of the welfare of the people from successful foreign policy moves. And domestic politics is the basis on which foreign is based. The history of all states and Ancient Russia is a confirmation of this. Rurik came to Russia, well, so what? Who is he? What is the use? Well, his opponents thought so, saying that he came and leaves ... What did the early Rurikovich do? A series of conquest campaigns! At the gates of Constantinople, they hung up their shield and healed Russia, and the rise of the productive forces went, and the cities went to growth and founded Moscow.
        We can enter the Middle East and dictate our will to the Gulf countries - there will be oil and gas at the price that is beneficial to us. And if we can influence prices and quotas for hydrocarbon production, then not only the United States, but Russia will also establish economic rules for the game on the globe. We can’t - we will continue to play according to the imposed rules and we will vegetate, because the rules of the game are set by a high-class sharpie. Putin said this in his Munich speech in 2007, but then everyone just laughed ... now they won’t laugh, and if Syria really succeeds in pulling it out of their tenacious claws, then they will have to agree. And our task is to make the Anglo-Saxons move and make room for Russia at that round table where the most tidbits are divided.

I am not impressed by the opposition of the United States and the komuba, but the independent policy of our country. I am sincerely pleased that at the shouts from across the ocean, our leaders say "went to ...". Yes, I have some kind of dissonance between the internal and external situations. But I don’t care what the president of my country is doing, whether he is so drunk that he is not able to get out of the plane and whether he is conducting a drunk orchestra in a foreign country. Besides, aren't laws being written for me in a foreign country (and this is already much closer to the internal one).

Or "the European part of the Eurasia continent will go under water" :) Which is conceptually closer to you in the sense of KAYUK? While something similar happens in Europe, something will happen in our country with you, and maybe even a very significant one, that will eclipse the Eurocow even in the long term. There are no people on this resource who could reasonably comment on the current political, economic, military or any significant situation.

    I doubt that it would be so simple, maybe everyone would bombard with vigorous and ordinary bombs, but a country is considered captured only when there is infantry, but the Yankees had a problem with this:
    "On August 24, 1943, Operation Cottage, the most significant operation of the US Armed Forces in history, ended.
    The Americans prepared hundreds of ships, more than 35500 soldiers, to capture the Japanese island of Kyska.
    On August 15, 7800 experienced fighters landed on the island. Severe, bloody battles lasted 10 days.
    During the operation, the Americans lost 103 people killed, 230 soldiers were injured; the destroyer Abner Reed was also lost (71 dead and 43 wounded). Losses of the Japanese amounted to 0 people, as the Japanese were evacuated from the island two weeks before, under the cover of fog. "

This is not a new defensive military principle, under this sun the world already saw the similar thing, as at the sunset of its history the Great Rome became powerless, began to use barbarians for its protection, and which they subsequently finished it off. Had me that history repeats itself, they survived, the Americans can no longer or can not or do not want to fight!

    in general, precisely because women are so "hot" in their words, no one will ever take them seriously. she was going to arm everyone. To act with impunity the states now, as they did in the 90s, you need to have a lot of what they have lost.

    We will destroy the cyber wall and they will see what is happening in the rest of the world. And then we'll see how popular you are. ”

    the “cybersten” is still not destroyed just for the reason that if the ignorant learn the truth about the Western world, then Putin’s rating will be close to infinity. this characteristically shows his rating in the EU, when Europeans recognize our country’s position on such delicate issues as gay marriage, tolerance (by the way, the term came from medicine: the body’s inability to withstand external destructive factors) and other nonsense.

    “As for Vladimir Putin, I would explain to him the following:“ You remain in power only because your people live in the world you created. We will destroy the cyber wall, and they will see what is happening in the rest of the world. And then we will see how popular you are. ”

    Now the same propaganda is going on as in the 90s, but the only difference is that over these 24 years, people have long seen the west. And they already know what the American dream is. the scenario is the same. The most offensive will be that if people again believe this tale ... but I am sure that this will not happen

    The United States leaves the game in the Middle East, and Russia comes there, which will certainly help Syria and create a coalition with the Syrian ally Iran.


    And in my opinion everything turned out right in the USA. A turbulent flow of "refugees" poured into Europe as planned. You look at most of the "refugees": healthy young foreheads of draft return. And ISIS Europe is already a matter of time. Iraq, Syria and Libya are completely broken up and rolled back to the Stone Age. And what role does Russia play in all this? Very simple: it is we who have to restore everything.

    I want only one thing, that our borders be strengthened as much as possible, until the time when the IS becomes crowded and it floods into the Caucasus and Ukraine. There is a well-founded opinion that the trouble in Ukraine was started by the United States at the request of Europe, so that there was a place to fuse the “refugees”.

    If you really begin to hammer the isles in the deserts, then they are not such a powerful group, in a month their units will begin to hide in huts like in the Caucasus, but this is already the work of special forces.

    It is necessary to hammer at the centers of extraction of dough ... there will be no money, they will run away.

    [Russia could join a coalition of 60 states fighting the “Islamic State” engaged in “empty chatter”. Putin is another matter.]
    An unrelated phrase. Another thing:
    “Russia could join a coalition of 60 states that are allegedly fighting the Islamic State and are essentially engaged in“ empty chatter. ”Putin and Russia are another matter. This bond is building up its fist in the Middle East.” Mr. Pushkov in V. Solovyov’s show “The Duel” perfectly put everything in its place on this issue.

    Some kind of abracadabra. The fight against the IG, the third world war, Ukraine (with a small letter). In general, everything in the style of "mixed in a bunch of horses, people." Misters "overseas partners" need the help of psychoanalysts. What is going on in these heads is not known even to experienced psychiatrists. The absolute delirium and incoherence of speech speaks of mental ill-health. All right, but these unfortunately are capable of "committing irresponsible acts." There is so much shame in the world. Maybe it's time to recover America?

    Russia has long had to negotiate with all the forces that are fighting against ISIS. It’s useless with the ami, but you also need to find common ground. But the main thing is to create a real coalition that would fight specifically against ISIS. Russia could be able to support these forces with weapons and intelligence, some of which could even make it share information (they also have adequate information that everyone understands). Perhaps it is necessary to create a Russian contingent in Syria with powerful infrastructure and good technical equipment, but I am against fighting our soldiers.
    If it is really possible to create a powerful force under unified management with poor technical support from RUSSIA, then I think that ISIS and those who stand behind them will begin to experience serious problems. The east itself is another matter, where they understand only power and very poorly understand concessions and attempts to agree on a good one ... But with some opponents ISIS will have to agree on a good one. Here we need specialists.

    The whole world is more and more convinced of the vile essence of the policy of the US leadership and sees the correctness of Russia's position. God is not in power, but in truth! We also have a lesson - to hold on to the truth both in foreign policy and especially in domestic, then we will defeat any enemy. Unfortunately, there is no truth in the inside, and the enemies are using it.

    For numerous details, facts, "analyzes", "expert evaluations" mattress ears stick out. Liberoid experts "analyze" public opinion, etc. Sham nonsense is a method of hiding an objective assessment of a situation. But it is obvious - the role of mattresses in the helm of the world is decreasing every day. There are less and less people wishing to poke themselves against the Russian Federation.
    In the long run, world Judaism (Zionism) is waiting for enchanting changes. And not at all overpower. Rather, "rainbow," in the sense of geyropa.
