Daily Mail: Western leaders who see themselves as modern Churchill are playing a double game

36
The journalist of the British edition of the Daily Mail, Peter Hitchens, expressed the opinion that the British and American authorities would not start the fight against the Islamic State, but would only continue to imitate active actions. About his material writes RIA "News".




According to Hitchens, the West criticizes the Russian Federation for the beginning of the bombing in Syria, but if the rebels, who, according to British politicians, are “moderate,” were, for example, in Manchester, they would no doubt be detained as extremists.

At the same time, Western countries themselves do not stop bombing as a method of war, the journalist noted, citing Belgrade, Tripoli and Baghdad as an example. According to Hitchens, civilians, including children, were hardly and accidentally killed in these cities.

The journalist stressed that Western leaders, who think of themselves as modern Churchill, are playing a double game, forgetting about anti-extremist rhetoric when it comes to supplying weapons Saudi Arabia supporting Islamist fanatics. He also draws attention to the fact that Western politicians and the media do not hear criticism against Turkey, which, under the guise of fighting the IS, is bombing the Kurds.

Hitchens noted that the actions of the Russian Federation can be dangerous and hasty and can fail, especially if we consider the desire of Western leaders to prevent them. However, according to him, the Russian Federation, at least, is honest and straightforward.

    So much time and dough to swell in ISIS, then to destroy it? In the West, of course, there are political idiots. But they do not make decisions. Anglo-Saxons maneuver so as not to lose face and influence. For all the costs of the information war, I wish the leadership of the Russian Federation to withstand character. So that a new Khasavyurt does not appear.

        Resistance help count? After all, the “moderate opposition” actually paid by NATO cleared Assad’s clearing for ISIS and “withdrew” from the territories it occupies. By providing them with fossil and human resources. By the way, who buys hydrocarbons from ISIS (and directly sponsors this)? I think it’s easy to find out, because besides Turkey, do they have controlled pipes going anywhere?

          If ISIS could now, he would have cut out all the "moderate opposition." But the Turks are stopping them.

          There are many who want to buy cheap oil, but ISIS has already gone to the borders of Turkey. The Turks gave them a snot.

            I don’t really distinguish between ISIS and "moderate", they are all thugs, thugs. Their enmity is purely internal party disassembly. And if the "moderate" could, then they would also cut ISIS with Allahuacbar. So what bothers them if they have the support of Turkey, but ISIS does not?

            Assad also buys cheap oil from ISIS? You asked - I answered. Who buys oil is the sponsor. Most likely it is Turkey. Sponsorship and persuasion are not mutually exclusive.

            Why did it happen?
            Who interferes with the Turks is the Kurds, whom the Turks are bombing under the guise of fighting ISIS.
            It’s just that the Kurds are preventing the creation of a free corridor for the movement of Igilov’s oil.
            Regarding the content of ISIS, the architects of the project pumped it with weapons, they only brought it to self-sufficiency from the sale of oil, and then the bad luck - Russia really began to spud the Turkish and American wards .....
            While pounding infrastructure - bases, training camps, warehouses, communications.
            Russia so far offers the West to impose sanctions against ISIS and some "interested" in buying and selling counterfeit oil at dumping prices - but the United States and others like it are stupidly stopping this initiative.
            Something tells you that if the position of "non-partners" does not change on this issue, then the very basis of ISIS self-sufficiency will soon be destroyed - i.e. oil fields controlled by them. Then there will be a howl to stand, because to stand on the side of ISIS openly means to take full responsibility for what you have done, and not to stand up means to watch from the side how a fat pie is leaving you. The United States and Turkey now and now there is a gap in the template, but whether there will still be)))
            Here is perhaps one of the oil convoys who did not reach Turkey

      Some Hitchens wrote a very ordinary propaganda article - listen, there is absolutely NO information that could be discussed there, no topics that could be argued about?
      It seems that we are deliberately "lowered" by slipping such articles ...

      Imagine a big deal to us before them. Fortunately for us, there is no “modern Churchill” in Western politics and, God forbid, will not be in the near future. And with mediocre and predictable "partners" it is much easier to play a geopolitical game.

      Dear Uncle Vasya, I am somewhat surprised at your comment of this kind.
      Do you take into account the fact that this is the Western press? And similar publications:
      Hitchens noted that the actions of the Russian Federation can be dangerous and hasty and can fail, especially if we consider the desire of Western leaders to prevent them. However, according to him, the Russian Federation, at least, is honest and straightforward.

      they “play” in our favor, if only because they are radically changing the report of information about Russia to the western inhabitant. They (the Western media) will never say “Russia is good”, but the assessment of our country's position is honest and straightforward, on their part, this would have been nonsense six months ago.

      Well, something like this, uncle. hi

As you can see, our President was not going to consult with any of you and will not eventually Syria, you do not control and, in general, few people believe in BV ... so you are not in your position to set conditions ... negative

        how they tried to do it after the second world ...
        In World War II, we waited for 3 years, but here 3 days have not passed, and they are already opening a "second front". bully
        This is reported by the New York Times, citing sources in the Pentagon and the White House:
        Washington’s plans include opening a front in northeast Syria to put pressure on Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State. According to the publication, US President Barack Obama approved two steps aimed at accelerating the offensive operation. In particular, he ordered for the first time to directly deliver ammunition and, possibly, some weapons to the Syrian opposition. In addition, Obama supported the idea of ​​increasing the intensity of airstrikes on the positions of the Islamists.
        In short, when Assad is trampling on them, they should not need anything in terms of ammunition. And by "some weapons" I mean MANPADS and additional reconnaissance and guidance equipment.

    It’s a worthless comparison, it was Churchill who led a double, triple policy, apparently it was precisely from him that they learned, all these statements, articles, forecasts do not have anything real with the events, only a kind of PR (the minister has his own, the publication has his own)

      Michael, let me make some judgments. The fact that Churchill is an enemy is still the same, no one doubts. But, it was a smart, fairly predictable and most important (from my point of view) honest enemy, not hiding his hostile attitude towards the USSR, but understanding the need to support him. That, in general, does not make him our "friend", but made it possible to have clear, non-behind-the-scenes, communication with him.

      Well, such an opinion, Dear. hi

    For Russia, I now see only one way out, as inevitably and systematically clean up the IS in Syria, Iraq (if asked), Libya (if asked). The main thing is to do it quickly, clearly. That would not give the enemy time to mobilize against us.

    after Syria, the turn of Qatar and Saudi Arabia will come - these 2 countries are evil, that is where Islamic fascism arose.

    What is it like? War to go to them? Do not talk nonsense. Russia, even here in Syria, is trying to rely on the rule of law, as opposed to the US coalition, to which "the law is not written."


    Nevertheless, it is vitally necessary to find a council for the Saudis, they need to be taught such a lesson that others think about it ... I think that they need to be bombed as accomplices and sponsors of terrorism in the world as well as for war crimes in Yemen. In general, since we are stuck in the Middle East, then we must go to the end.

    “On October 3, at 12.08, a Russian military aircraft violated Turkish airspace from Syria in the Yailada region of Hatay province. After it was intercepted by two Turkish F-16 fighters patrolling the area, the plane left Turkish airspace, ”the Turkish Foreign Ministry reports to RIA Novosti.

    On Monday (today), Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the Russian military operation in Syria “a serious mistake” and stated that these actions may lead to isolation of Moscow. "
