Project "ZZ". Putin’s “Perfect Script”

64
While Washington, trying to shine a dull image, claims the need to "put pressure" on Assad and that Moscow and Tehran should "put pressure", a major US press talks about the "informational victory" of the Kremlin, Putin's chance to implement the "ideal scenario" and that the White House was taken by surprise by the actions of the Russians in Syria. Leading American media are pouring more and more poisonous criticism on the “strategy” of the figure from the Oval Office.



Where is your tie, Mr. President?


Washington "expects that Russia and Iran will have an impact on Assad," Barack Obama said in an interview with the 60 Minutes program on CBS, writes "Lenta.ru".

According to Mr. Obama, the Russian strategy in Syria is wrong. “As long as Assad is in power, it will be difficult to switch the forces of the moderate Syrian opposition to fight the“ IG, ”the US president said.

"We knew that Russia plans to provide military assistance to Syria, because it was afraid that the Assad regime would collapse," the head of the White House said.

Did you know?

Analysts have a different opinion. The opposite.

Greg Miller and Karen De Young (Greg Miller and Karen DeYoung) in one of the largest American newspapers - Washington Post, point out: The United States was taken aback by Russia's actions.

Here are the arguments.

The first signs that Moscow was going to conduct a military operation in Syria were the Kremlin’s requests for permission for a rather large number of its heavy aircraft to cross the borders of other states. They talked about this since the middle of August, 2015, and they did not speak somewhere, but in the Obama administration. The newspaper cites one such statement: “We have received reports that the Russian Federation is asking to allow more of its aircraft to cross the borders,” said a presidential administration official. And the details were known: the official said that Moscow had requested permission for both cargo aircraft and "combat and bombers." “It was clear,” the official said, “that something big is happening.”

Suspicions intensified when Russia transferred jet fighters and teams of military advisers to Syria.

And yet the United States missed the Russian military operation: the White House, according to journalists, apparently, "was taken by surprise by a series of air strikes" of Moscow. In addition, according to the authors of the report, Moscow’s attacks were directed against the Syrian rebels. The latter, by the way, have been teaching and arming the CIA for two years now.

Russian airstrikes "undermined" the already weak American strategy. And on October 9, the Pentagon officially acknowledged that it is winding down its mission to create forces to combat IS.

It seems, we’ll add, journalists are thus summing up the actions of the Kremlin and the reaction of the White House. With actions, everything is clear, what is the reaction?

Here she is. The Pentagon’s curtailing the Syrian programs has affected several areas at once: 1) secret intelligence attempts to help the Syrian rebels to overthrow Bashar al-Assad will be stopped; 2) collapses open operation with the use of aircraft and the help of a number of rebel groups fighting against the "IG".

Today, US officials and experts admit that the Obama administration has reacted too slowly to obvious signs of impending problems. “I think there is a gap between the intelligence gathering stage and the strategy development and implementation stage,” said former intelligence analyst for the Military Intelligence Agency Jeffrey White (now he is following the development of the Syrian situation at the Washington Institute).

Even by the beginning of September, when Putin was transferring equipment and military personnel to Syria, the United States did not have a clear interpretation of Moscow’s actions, the newspaper writes.

As for the CIA, this intelligence agency refused to comment on participation in the Syrian conflict.

It is not excluded that the Pentagon’s curtailment of its programs will lead to an increase in US aid to the groups supported by the CIA in Syria. According to unnamed officials, the developers of the relevant program are considering some "options for action", for example, sending missile systems to Syria. Such systems would allow the rebels to strike at Russian bases. White mentioned that he mentioned some “more advanced” systems to the publication, but added that such a strategy would contradict what “Barack Obama is“ ready to achieve in Syria ”.

In the editorial column of the same Washington Post “Obama's retreat” in Syria is stated directly.

The administration of the US president, which has publicly announced its refusal to support the Pentagon’s programs for the recruitment and training of "Syrian forces," thereby signifying a "further retreat." However, this is not surprising: many critics of the White House foresaw a similar outcome from the very beginning of the preparation of the program.

Obama predicted 20 months ago that Putin’s “invasion” of Ukraine would collapse, but today Putin controls the Crimea and a fragment of eastern Ukraine, and he managed to defend an agreement with the West on a political settlement. Now the White House assumes that the Moscow offensive in Syria will not end with anything good for Moscow either. Risky point of view, says the publication.

The United States does not necessarily have to “fight with Russia” in order to take measures in Syria against Putin’s aspirations that meet the “vital interests of the United States.”

Assistance to “moderate forces fighting the Assad government” should be accelerated. Rebels really need anti-tank weapons. In northern Syria, in partnership with Turkey, a “safe zone” should be created. Instead of “lecturing” Putin, Mr. Obama must show the Kremlin “red lines”. If you do not draw a line for the Russians, their “aggression” will escalate, the newspaper writes.

Another major edition, "The Huffington Post", writes directly about the "information victory of Russia." This was told by publicist Scott Ritter.

October 7 four Caspian ships flotilla The Russian Navy launched 26 long-range Caliber cruise missiles with 11 targets in Syria. All 26 missiles reached their goals.

However, according to "unnamed sources" from the Pentagon, four of the twenty-six rockets fell not at all in Syria, but in Iran, where two of them exploded "in the countryside", causing damage to buildings. It was also said about the likely victims "among the civilian population." The US has absolutely no evidence, and the Russian and Iranian authorities strongly deny these allegations.

And here's a fact: Russia is currently a country capable of launching missiles at a distance of almost 1000 miles. The informational actions of the Russians show that the Kremlin wins the propaganda war, and not the American Pentagon, which would be very advantageous for the Russians to miss. However, the "claims" of the Pentagon to the Russian missile "miss" are unfounded.

The unreasoned nature of the openly anti-Russian propaganda campaign of the Pentagon only underlines the difficult situation the United States has fallen on at the global level after the Russian attacks. The Russians offered Washington to coordinate military operations in Iraq and Syria in the new joint Russian-Iranian-Iraqi-Syrian headquarters in Baghdad, but the Americans categorically refused to do so. As a result, the US embassy in Iraq receives a “rude warning from a Russian officer about the closure of Syrian airspace,” as Russian operations are about to begin. The United States Air Force is forced to suspend operations so that Russian and American aircraft will not make contact with each other.

In addition, US aircraft operate with the permission of the Iraqi government on Iraq, but do not have the appropriate permission from the Syrian government. That is, in fact, the United States is operating outside international law. The Russians are present in Syria at the invitation of the official government, the author recalls. Therefore, they, in fact, now control the entire airspace of Syria. The United States has no legal basis to protest against Russia's actions.

American prestige caused irreparable damage. This is the real “face loss”. The Russian missile strike is only part of a “large coordinated offensive” involving the Syrian army, Iran and Russia, the author believes.

Ulrich speck in "The American Interest" writes that the West was "caught off guard" by the actions of Russia.

Many Western leaders and commentators do not dare to condemn the actions of Russia in Syria. They believe that Russia ultimately wants to bring at least some stability in the region and put an end to the war.

According to the journalist, Russia is leading an asymmetrical war with the West in Syria. The West is stronger, but Russia "can win if it plays smarter." Putin’s short-term goal, according to the author, is to prevent the region’s transition to a liberal democracy. In the long term, the goal is to turn the region into a “bloc”, ready to act under the command of Moscow. This is the creation of a new multi-polar world in which Russia is one of the poles. And this pole can mean more than just regional power. In short, the loss of Syria’s long-time ally for Moscow would mean the loss of the last Russian bridgehead in the Middle East and a significant defeat.

Military intervention on behalf of the Assad regime presents Putin with a range of opportunities, the author believes.

1. Demonstration of power in front of the "hesitant and irresponsible United States."

2. Russia's withdrawal from international isolation.

3. A new lever to weaken the EU’s political solidarity and resolve. And this Putin’s strategy “seems to be working,” the journalist is excited to say. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who openly criticized Putin’s actions in Ukraine, is now “hoping” that Russia will give Syria peace. And the head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, speaking in Germany, said that “practical efforts should be made” to improve relations with Russia. The EU should see Russia as a “decent” partner. The European Union cannot allow Washington to dictate the rules of relations with Russia.

4. Keeping Assad in power. And at the same time - the failure of the project "liberal democracy" in Syria. Putin, after all, “is positioning Russia at the forefront of the struggle against liberal democracy,” the author believes.

If Putin’s actions in Syria lead to success, it can strengthen the bonds between Russia and its partners and allies among the “autocrats.”

The stakes are high, and this is a risky move for Putin. But, unlike Ukraine, in Syria, Moscow is "part of a wider coalition," which includes the Assad army, Iran, and Iraq, and Hezbollah. And if Russia and its allies succeed in ending the “opposition” in Syria, the world will see the emergence of a broad “informal” coalition in which the US and European powers will have to fight the IS “together with Russia, Iran and the Assad regime”. “For Putin, this would be an almost perfect scenario,” the analyst sums up.

* * *


While Mr. Obama is trying to "read lectures" to Putin, the Russians are acting in Syria in full accordance with international law. This cannot be said about the actions of the United States, which, through the CIA and the Pentagon, support illegal armed groups in Syria. And if Russia helps Assad in the fight against extremists, then Washington has the goal not to fight the "IG", and the overthrow of the legitimate president of Assad. Mr. Obama does not know how to get out of an obviously disastrous situation. That is why the large American press of the USA is reiterating the “informational victory” of the Kremlin and Putin’s chance to realize the “ideal scenario.” I didn’t wait, didn’t wait for Obama to make such a move from “isolated” Putin ...

    Hello Oleg, sorry little comment on your articles now. Remember two years ago when you released the Geopolitical Mosaic, we talked a lot about the fact that if ours leaves the patterns and acts unconventionally then America will be a bit ..

              there is a gap between the stage of collecting intelligence data and the stage of developing a strategy and its implementation, ”said Jeffrey White, a former analyst with the Military Intelligence Agency,

              A common disease for a chronic aggressor, who is accustomed to not limiting himself in time in the process of preparing his operations. Whether business when fast chess begins. Russia constantly has to shy away from strikes and therefore does not have to hold the skills in a quick game.

          Normal guy. Smart. The people of the United States are very pleased with his internal politics. No luck just. The term of his presidency coincided with the beginning and unhurried unfolding of a major crisis ... no matter how since 1936. Not an economic crisis, complex: economic, ideological, worldview, military. The Caribbean was more dangerous, but at times simpler, it could be resolved, staying with its own, this one will not succeed. The imbalance in contribution and income, real power and the existing hierarchy is painfully monstrous. I am surprised by those who write something like: "... almost like in 2008!". 2008 - children's toys compared to 2015, it was before the Arab Spring. But Obama is not a crisis manager, and it is not known who is suitable for such a role there, because rigidity without a mind can be even worse than intelligent stupidity.

    And on October 9, the Pentagon officially admitted that it was curtailing the mission to create forces to fight the ISIS.

    All this is suspicious, oh suspicious. After all, Assad does not need to overthrow Assad, they need a hot spot that will become a factory for the production of militants and the associated instability in the region. I can’t get rid of the feeling that they didn’t run away, but simply dragged us into this batch instead of ourselves. Like, they used to produce terrorists with one hand, they drenched them with the other. Now you can only produce; Let the Russians engage in “mochilovym”.

    Of course, I would like to be mistaken, but, as practice shows, only Zadornov’s Americans are “stupid”; in fact, they can be much more cunning and cunning than we commonly think.

        It's not about human losses on our part, but about performance. You can beat the Papuans from the air for years; a new portion of meat will come in their place over and over again while this flow is being funded. An asymmetric answer, so to speak. Relying on the Syrian Armed Forces is not worth it: they managed to lose almost all the wars in which they got involved.

        they are not even one step behind ..

        I’m afraid that ISIS alone cannot be completely destroyed. And the ground units of the Syrian army are unlikely to complete the rout if they fight like the one in the video of Poddubny on the Russia-24 channel: the correspondent and (judging by the shooting) the videographer work at full height, at the same time the Syrian warrior solitary from "Kalashinikov" bullets into the white light from behind the wall, holding the machine gun high above his head and turning it towards the enemy, but not seeing anyone, not aiming at anyone. So are they going to clean their land from terrorists?

        What for? The USA is a weakening empire, which is trying to strengthen itself by weakening potential competitors (Europe, Russia, China, etc.).

      They have patterned thinking. As Zhukov used to say to one of his subordinate generals about the Germans during the Second World War: "... The strategy of the German command on the offensive — attacks from the flanks of tank and motorized infantry groups and the environment ..."

      They were afraid that the state-supported opposition would collapse with the advent of Russian aircraft. But they invested so much in them, and the GDP spoiled all the plans for America.

      She has not yet collapsed. And you won’t bring it down with airplanes: as long as there is funding, the ranks of the "opposition" will replenish. At the same time, local Papuans can cost obviously less than the hours spent on their destruction. At such a pace, you can run into another Vietnam or Afghanistan: a protracted war is unclear with anyone without special chances of victory.

        Invalid comparison. By the way, in Afghanistan, our people not only fought, but also built factories, houses, schools, hospitals and kindergartens. And what did the Americans and their "green berets" build in South Vietnam (not to mention North Vietnam)?

          Why is it incorrect? I am talking about performance. Yes, ours invested very well in Afghanistan. And what is the result? Now I do not touch on the moral and ethical side of the issue, everything is clear with it. But we in Syria are not fighting for some abstract justice or spherical good; we kind of defend our strategic interests there. Therefore, we must always keep in mind the notorious ratio of costs and results.

    The West is stronger, but Russia “can win if it plays smarter

    It is necessary to clarify - the west is fatter, the snickering NATO is a fat man who is confused with a strong man.

    What will the Westerners say in an interview with Putin, which clearly states that the US and NATO have been repeatedly warned of Russia's intentions?

    By the way, they noticed that in the rhetoric of Washington, “IG” is almost absent, there is talk about the “moderates” who are being prepared by the US-CIA, and the Russians are being destroyed ...

    Of course, the “daddy” who spent $ 500.000.000 to train 5 real “moderate oppositionists” even to find them among 20.000 ISIS is an impossible task, and to “switch” - the carcasses of the lamp. bully

    Seven Nights from 1001 ...
    1. A night call by special connection woke the commander of the Caspian Flotilla.
    - At the device! said the rear admiral, squinting at his watch.
    “Igor Vladimirovich,” he heard in the pipe the cheerful voice of the Minister of Defense. - Do you still have rusty and non-flying Caliber missiles?
    - These are the ones that fly a maximum of three hundred kilometers? - asked the commander.
    - I got the joke! Well done! - answered Shoigu. - Listen to the battle order!
    Having listened to the order, the rear admiral jumped into his tunic, looked at the photo, where he stood embracing the commanders of the Pacific and Northern fleets and smiled triumphantly:
    - Well, Seryoga and Vovka? Who is "floating in shallow kayak"?
    Five minutes later, the rocket ship of the 11661 Dagestan project made its first launches.
    Ten minutes later, the frustrated Northern Fleet Commander called the Minister of Defense to allow him to support the Caspian sailors ’initiative by launching the Bulava from the Yuri Dolgoruky submarine-launched cruiser.
    - One small start! - Admiral boomed. - One small such "Bulava" ...
    - quit! - Shoigu decisively ordered, imagining a “small Mace” and shuddering. - The whole and united Syria in the region does not mean - Syria, the only surviving in the region. After all, there are still many different and original countries!
    - Yes? - surprised the admiral. “It's just that I can't see the periscope from here, it's to blame!”
    And by noon, the sailor of the rocket ship Arsen Muradov became an icon of the whole of Dagestan, as he managed to write on the cruise missile "Dagi - power!" Before launching

    2. The reaction of the democratic West to the next sally of the Russian military was stormy.
    - This Russia showed its weakness! - Said the US president and ordered the immediate removal of the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt from the Persian Gulf to show its strength.
    It became clear to the entire civilized world that Raska is everything.
    Thousands of military experts did not go to school that day and began scribbling analytics, where, like two and two, they argued that the Russian Federation had no missiles, no fleet, and no Caspian Sea.
    Turkish President Erdogan Pasha, realizing that the freebie with oil at ten bucks a barrel ends, rashly stated that Turkey would give up Russian gas and nuclear power plants, which immediately broke the unprecedented achievements of Ukrainians who left themselves without the Russian market, the sky and money.
    Erdogan was immediately approached by enterprising Japanese with a proposal to sell the Fukushima nuclear power plant for low-cost excellent, with low mileage, after engine reassembly, painting, replacing iron in a circle and with a beautiful Sparco sticker on the hole in the reactor.
    In general, paraphrasing the classics, the consequences of the Russian missile strike were felt not only by the terrorists - few who have not yet felt them.

      3. Anton since childhood wanted to become a pilot. But when he grew up and it turned out that he could fit in the plane only as an aerial bomb, and then only on the external suspension, Anton hated all the pilots, especially the Russians.
      It used to be that Antosha was lying in a wheat field, looking at the planes flying above him and thinking:
      - Russian pilots ... I hate.
      And the pilots look down and think:
      - A well-fed, after all, grunts run through the endless fields of Ukraine! It is necessary not to forget to buy fat from local residents at a refueling station in Borispol.
      And so Antosha decided to take revenge on the pilots. And he threw a cry to send him the data of Russian pilots, and he will transfer this data to bearded terrorists.
      He sat at the computer and waited for feedback. But, whether the terrorists have not yet retreated after the celebration of the birthday of Vladimir Vladimirovich, or they were afraid to write, so that the Russians, who know them, did not send their missiles at ah-pi, or something else - but there were no responses.
      But Ramzan Kadyrov responded. In his usual easy and relaxed manner, he invited Anton to barbecue. Anton loved kebabs, he licked his lips and asked trustingly:
      - A lamb or lamb kebabs?
      - From the pig! - said darkly Ramzan. - From a fat, cowardly and dirty pig!
      Antosha suddenly felt uncomfortable, he hung up the phone, deleted his recording and spent the whole night crying inconsolably into the pillow.

      4. It is difficult this week had the Nobel Committee.
      The order from the State Department has been received, and how should it be carried out if such bright and original authors as Goebbels, Novodvorskaya and Nemtsov are no longer with us, and Yatsenyuk, McCain and Hillary Clinton do not write books?
      But lucky - they found one aunt in Minsk.
      Knocked on the door.
      - Who? She asked hysterically.
      - From the committee! - answered her.
      Shots rang out.
      While they were taking away the parabellum from the aunt, while they were explaining that the committee was not the one she thought about, while they were looking for a suit covering the SS tattoos and “Bandera Dick!” They almost missed the award ceremony. Not good.

      5. The American fleet proudly sailed to the "controversial" Chinese islands in order to show their new victims from the Trans-Pacific Partnership that the United States, if anything, can successfully defend them.
      South Koreans who know first-hand the protection of the United States tactfully avoided participation in the treaty, judging that they strained with Kim Jong-un is nothing against the background of Iraq and Libya, which, at one time, were successfully defended by the United States.
      A similar chip was in 90-e our scammers. Find a sucker, tell him that you are incredibly cool, as proof to give a sucker to the Ministry of Defense, get out of the car, go in front of his eyes to the first counter general with stripes, ask him what time it is, complain about an unusually early autumn, go back to sucker, tell him that everything on the ointment - your contract for the supply of dishes with MO is ready - give money.
      In a word, they will sail, chat on the islands, “projecting force”, and dump them, referring to urgent matters elsewhere on the planet. So far, the Chinese, God forbid, have not asked - And you, comrades, on what question, exactly?

        6. Britain is ready to shoot down our planes in Iraq, for which it will equip its Tornado fighter-bombers with air-to-air missiles.
        That is, on airplanes positioning themselves as a "fighter", there were no air-to-air missiles? Interesting. Although it is logical - why the "maize" rocket?
        Another great Ranevskaya said: “Beautifully growing old is an art!”
        Britain, it seems, this art has not mastered. Instead of quietly and quietly leaving all her ridiculous island to rest, she is trying to prove something to someone else. The East India Company, apparently, does not give rest. The victorious marches of the empire, the shooting of sepoys, heavily loaded ships with stolen good and other amenities.
        Although, the same Indians, now they could easily shoot British officers, tying them to guns with a view of the English Channel and turning on "Jimmy-Jimmy, hach-hach!" At full capacity, in order to drown out the cries of unhappy gentlemen.
        Just Indians are not like that.

        7. Sanctions from Belarus gathered to remove. I wonder if the Old Man will lead to this bullshit? Will he join the former head of the carpool in Donetsk? Will he then sadly howl at a press conference in Russia: “I just wanted for peace!”
        Continuation of the fascinating series “We, a young and independent state!” Immediately after the end of the Aviadarts in Syria championship and water polo between the national teams of the USA and China.

        That was such a week.

    Mr. Obama does not know how to get out of an obviously disastrous situation.


    It is very interesting to look at Obama's face when a journalist asks him a question about Putin. At first, his face expresses a slight contempt, such as when a universally recognized maestro is asked a question about some petty, precocious policy, claiming something more. Then this expression goes on for a second into another, betraying that Obama was specifically "stuck" and deep down in his soul he has rather strong feelings for him. Then comes the usual wide smile. But the mask was discarded, although it opened just for a second.

      Already. Without hesitation in MANPADS, the "moderate opposition" was thrown off the transporter. The question is, if this opposition is fighting ISIS, which does not have its own air force, why do these MANPADS fighters? And if they are fighting against Assad, that is, on the side of ISIS, another question begs: Who then is supplying weapons in front of the whole US world?

    I don’t understand, because of their stupidity they’ll spray poison on him, because it’s better for Americans and Obama to have Americans sit in offices and drive expensive cars, rather than live in boxes on the street due to the fact that all the old women would go to maintain the American order, in the occupied world, the occupation of which the damn dough goes ...

    In Syria. Mr. Obama bothered to destroy Syria in 4 years: infrastructure, residents, enterprises and the army. Obviously, Syria will need money and time, and Assad will leave because already just got sick for 4 years ... As a result, the US thought and decided it would be time to replace the rabid ISIS who did their job with the SSA, but how to do it cheaply? Correctly you need to make sure that everyone who cares about them gets rid of them at their own expense i.e. Iran and the Russian Federation, and Iran needs to be pulled through someone to whom it trusts. And then it will be possible to support the opposition and push its political decision in Syria, especially since the Russian Federation will restore everything at its own expense in Syria, and then the Yankos will arrange a maidan coup, and they can wait five years, they are in no hurry.

    And what is there in Hohland? Since the GDP received what was required, i.e. in the wake of a fall in the country's GDP, he squeezed Crimea and raised patriotism by dumping everything on an external enemy, then the United States was pleased to solve the problem with Donbas. The GDP decided that everything will be the same with Georgia in 2008, the United States will calm down and calm down, but it wasn’t there, the price of the rate wasn’t loot but the territory of the Russian Federation, as a result, it fell on the oligarchic grandmothers. In order to pacify the owners, he surrendered back at that moment when there were supporters of the Russian Federation after the coup, and the country was extremely unstable, and the army was not, mercenaries, grandmothers and weapons would have a significant effect for pushing the eastern hohlostan. But he decided to appease them, as a result he recognized the power of the Nazis and allowed them to strengthen the regime and help him economically. By the time it became obvious that the owners would not forgive petty pranks with Crimea and the price of the matter was his head, he decided to quietly get rid of Donbas as a burden that surfaced as an unexpected nuisance in the wake of patriotism. But the question is how to do this without losing points within the country and not pissing off the owners' rage outside? It is necessary to organize a small victorious war that will distract attention and suit everyone, and, in the name of peace, agree on civilized processes to return the broken and unnecessary Donbass to Ukraine. And then they remembered about Syria in which the war went on for 4 years and before which all these four years of FSU were deep. Those. they exchanged it for Syria, because the high-profile victories in Syria are somehow more noticeable than the struggle against the Nazis in the Donbass.

    Moreover, the war in the overseas is difficult to get to and the huge transportation costs are much better than even the civil massacre in the Donbass, which needed only partial assistance. But now the Russian Federation with victorious relations has fallen into two fronts, one distant and one adjacent and rejoices.

    A more powerful USSR that managed to endure and then tried not to fight on two fronts, but here the Russian Federation with the buy-sell economy, quietly crawls into the aspen ... Doesn't it seem like a bit strange to the patriots?

    Instead of “lecturing” to Putin, Mr. Obama should show the Kremlin “red lines”.


    Competent recommendation.
    And if in the near future Russia does not draw its “red line”, then a sluggish conflict will be ensured for many years. On the territory of Syria there should be neither enclaves, nor "security zones" on land or air. Any creep should be suppressed by the Syrian authorities. Naturally, with our support.
    Otherwise, Afghanistan. "Soft", almost bloodless, but deadlock politically.
