Putin picks up the master key to Saudi Arabia

Putin picks up the master key to Saudi Arabia



News international isolation of the Russian Federation and personally V.V. Putin's impressive. Fresh selection:

1Vladimir Putin met with the Deputy Crown Prince, Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Saudi Arabia Muhammad ibn Salman Al Saud.
2Vladimir Putin met with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the armed forces of the United Arab Emirates, Mohammed Al-Nahyan.
3Between the Arab leaders, the president of the Italian company Pirelli, Marco Tronchetti Provera, who also urgently wanted to talk to "Putin, isolated from the civilized world," was busy.

In recent months, there has been a very noticeable interest that various leaders of the Muslim (Sunni) world show towards Moscow. Some actions in this direction have been taken before, but they were either too timid, or ended badly before they could bear fruit (see the case of Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan). Now, after the demonstration of Russian power in the Middle East, the situation may change.

It is important to understand the difference between the perception of an ordinary citizen and the perception of a statesman. An ordinary citizen would like to have friends in our international arena, and an ordinary citizen from these friends expects loyalty, sincerity and willingness to help in difficult times. And I just want a friend to be a good person. This is all well and good, but absolutely not applicable in the real world.

In the real world there are no "friends", there are only interests, compromises, blackmail, threats, bribery and deception. This exhausts the list of possible types of interaction between countries. Friendship and enmity does not appear there. What is commonly perceived as "friendship" is just a temporary coincidence of interests. "Enmity" is a temporary mismatch of interests. Moreover, a significant role is played by the interests not of countries, but of political and economic elites, which often do not coincide.

For example, with the exception of a very short period, the interests of the Soviet political elite were in clear contradiction with the interests of the people. One strain of the Soviet elite considered the “world fire of revolution” its interest, while the country was perceived as an instrument to kindle this fire. The other, later strain considered it as its interest to secure the same level of material consumption as Western elitarists, and the country was perceived as an asset that can be “spent” to achieve this goal. It is this generation of the elite that finished the USSR. Many national elites suffer from a similar disease: from Africa to Ukraine. The specific needs of the national political elites of different countries determine the Kremlin’s tactics and strategy in dealing with certain countries.

The Kremlin is often reproached for not actively working with the political elites of other countries, and critics often take the American approach to the issue as an example. The problem is that only Americans can implement American strategy. Judge for yourself: if you try to compete with the Americans in terms of material benefits, you can immediately close the shop. At any "auction", Americans easily outbid any elitist, and they are able to kill not only the price offered by Russia, but also easily kill the price offered by the PRC. Washington’s baton is at least as good as Moscow or Beijing. It is also quite difficult to compete with the USA on the ideological and cultural field: the daughters and mistresses of the elitist dream of Nice and real estate in London, and not the beach in Sochi or Sanya.

So we can offer the political elites of the Middle East or conditional Kazakhstan? With the elites of the Old World everything is simpler - the old European business aristocracy wants to throw off the American yoke and return on an equal footing to the Big Game. But what about the elites of countries that have never claimed the status of superpowers or even independent players? Can we or the Chinese offer them what Washington does not offer?

Putin has found such a proposal, which is an ideal master key for entering the most difficult regions of the planet. There is one problem - the master key only works if the elitarians with whom he negotiates have a brain. If there is no brain (see Yanukovych’s case) the scheme, unfortunately, does not work. Putin ingeniously uses one of the strengths of the American strategy, turning it into weakness. Americans, as you know, never put on one politician. In each country, the ambassador keeps several political forces on a leash at once, simultaneously controlling both the power and the opposition. The example of Ukraine is closest to us: Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, Turchinov, Lyashko - these are politicians who hate each other and compete with each other, but all work from the same remote control in the hands of American diplomats.

Such a scheme allows Washington to get rid of those politicians who have already discredited themselves and allow them to remove a politician who is trying to play an independent game at any time. It also allows you to play funny performances called "fight against corruption" and "turnover of power", which are very popular with naive plebeians, who believed in democracy with the brand "Made in USA".

This American scheme has one vulnerability. Every pro-American politician, whose IQ value is greater than the size of his boot, understands that not only can he be "drained" at any moment and, no matter how he serves himself, he will always be deprived of the stolen money and worn out in feathers for the fun of the crowd. So end everything. No options. Mubarak and Hussein, too, were once great friends of the United States.

In that short moment, between the understanding of the inevitable and the accomplishment of the inevitable, the wiser elitist has a unique chance to escape, often with his country. At this very moment Putin appears on the scene, who has a unique offer. The uniqueness of Putin’s proposal is that in the case of at least minimally productive work with the official authorities of a particular country, the Kremlin never works with the opposition. NEVER. Under no circumstances. Even the most minimal desire to cooperate with the Kremlin is like a lifetime insurance policy, which is valid even for idiots (see the case of Yanukovych). Putin does not offer money, and cooperation with Russia generally means that American real estate, offshore accounts and cocaine parties in Las Vegas are no longer available to elitist, but he is acquiring an invaluable thing - a chance to save power.

This is not only a Russian strategy. China uses a similar tactic in Africa than infuriating the United States. And today, after the demonstration of the Russian forces in Syria, even the oldest vassals of the United States are ready at least to listen carefully to the Russian proposals.

Prince Muhammad Ibn Salman Al Saud, who flew to Moscow, was not the first Saudi elitist to realize the tragedy of his position as part of the US plans to promote "controlled chaos", but perhaps he would be luckier than Prince Bandar, who the Americans "shot on takeoff " last year. Prince Muhammad ibn Salman is not a lone wolf, but the de facto ruler of the country, enjoying the incapacity of the monarch and the support of some other intelligent representatives of the House of Saud.

The results of the visit of the Prince to Moscow look positive. "Moscow and Riyadh confirmed common goals for Syria", claims Sergey Lavrov.

This does not mean that from tomorrow Saudi Arabia will become an ally of Russia, but the drift towards Moscow is already noticeable. Against the crown prince who visited Moscow, the Arabian Maidan is officially being prepared with the participation of local pro-American aristocrats. It is very possible that the desire to save life and power led the Arabian prince to an audience with Vladimir Putin.

Perhaps the "Arabian Maidan" is the first attempt at a color revolution, in which blue bloods will be the main driving force. I wonder how they would call him? "Camel Revolution"? "Ferrari-maidan"? "Oil Spring"?

The fact remains that the British Guardian cites a manifesto spreading among "prince-maydanovtsev" who are trying to make Muhammad ibn Salman Al Saud a small victorious coup.

It's funny that they themselves do not understand that the United States does not need a change of power, but complete bloody chaos. However, it would be foolish to expect from hereditary majors to be able to think several moves ahead.

Will the crown prince manage to draw the right conclusions and draw enough forces to his side to turn Saudi Arabia from the brink and save the dynasty? It's not clear yet. If all goes well, perhaps the Syrian question will be resolved to the delight of all the parties to the conflict minus the United States. Yes, and "manual OPEC" for Russia would not be superfluous tool of global strategic influence.

And if everything is bad? If everything is bad, then Viktor Yanukovych may have a neighbor with a big harem. In any case, we do not lose anything, but we can win a lot. This is the signature style of Vladimir Putin. We wish good luck to his diplomats, who still have a lot of difficult work in Riyadh.

        The Saudis were afraid of their own foster-igil march. They understand that these frostbitten “comrades” can easily designate them and themselves “infidels” and conduct practical classes on “theology”. There is no hope for Americans, because they throw their own more often than strangers. Here pampered Arab sheikhs and twitched.

          The Saudis are arrogant Bedouins. If it weren’t for the huge amount of oil demanded after WWII, like a hundred years ago, we would ride our camels in the desert from Mecca to Medina and back ... Mentality and intelligence are extremely low (does anyone know at least one scientist from SA ?), and only the colossal and practically gratuitous infusion of grandmothers into the royal treasury is formed. Hence all the vicious bombast and snobbery.
          According to analysts, the army is armed with first-class modern weapons, but at the same time it has extremely low combat efficiency. And do they need to fight on their own, these well-fed, well-fed Saudis? They’d better throw a couple of lemons to some opposition, and they themselves will look from the side. From here comes all the financing of terrorist organizations, and they themselves are their ideological nursery.
          But apparently this is the time, not everything is so smooth in the kingdom of Saudi, since they are already looking for approaches to Putin ...

            Yes, there are no scientists among them. And why, if so good, there are enough grandmas in bulk, because oil does not end there. But they still have a mind, but it was enough to properly manage the money from oil. But the freebie will someday end. Here are the smartest of the SA feel this.

              The Saudis and others like them are investing not a small amount in the development of alternative energy sources, they are well aware that the oil will run out and will want to eat. In my opinion this is a sign of the mind.

        I would like about the master keys, I reminded the situation not so long ago - when the Saudis told the afonchik he would buy our weapons, in exchange for refusing to supply Iran with the S-300. Also there fanfare thundered about this. But in the end, it turned out ugly with Iran and the Saudis threw to the fullest. So this is all nonsense - they will ask you to drain Assad, instead of 1000 bmp, and then they will throw

          Based on what the UAV does on the Turkish border with a ten plus overview. The answer is very simple, looking for a free area for moving or transporting something. In the photo, a Chinese-made aircraft, priced from 3 to 5 thousand greens, depending on the moto, without optics. You can order this online. The Russian UAV may look similar, too, with sophisticated optics, but so far the Russian Air Force has no tasks on the Turkish border. They can’t even force the militants out there; they go to Raqqah so as not to be squeezed from two sides.

      The downed plane is reported on the website of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Turkey.

      Before the plane was hit, it was warned by the Turkish side three times, but continued the flight, the report emphasizes. The object was shot down by Turkish air forces patrolling the border.

      According to Reuters, it is not known which country the downed plane could belong to.

      Later it became known that the Turkish Air Force shot down a drone that violated airspace.

      The incident occurred amid reports of an offensive by Syrian forces in the province of Aleppo, bordering Turkey. Reuters, citing Syrian state television and human rights defenders, reported that the attack was being supported by Russian aviation.

      The Turkish NTV channel reported that the drone shot down by the country's air force fighter turned out to be a drone.

      According to media reports, after a three-time warning about violation of Turkish airspace, aircraft that patrolled the border opened fire and shot down a drone without identification marks. Although earlier in the Turkish General Staff they said that an airplane of unknown nationality was "spotted" on the border.

      The circumstances of the incident on the Turkish-Syrian border are being clarified. Meanwhile, the General Staff again emphasized that violations of the country's airspace will continue to be resolutely suppressed.

    It’s a big mistake to work with the opposition; how can you bring opposition politicians sympathetic to Russia to power? Play on the interests and contradictions of the opposition and the authorities in countries unfriendly to Russia? For some reason, they are not fools in the US Department of State; for some reason, they are feeding and fostering opposition parties and movements in "rebellious countries" around the world, including Russia.

    Saudis will never be with Russia. The article is the optimistic fantasies of the author.
    In order to draw conclusions about the color revolution in Saudi Arabia, you need to at least know the percentage of potentially dissatisfied in this state.
    What may be unhappy at the moment, Arabs bathing in luxury?
    The only thing that can be of interest to the Saudis at the moment is Russia's refusal to support Iran and, as a result, all Shiites in the Middle East. Since on this issue the Sunni Saudis at the moment have begun to bake ... And if you take into account the fighting efficiency of their army, then they can only count on "Uncle Sema", without his support they will be rolled out in the desert with a thin layer and sprinkled with a thick one.

    For example, with the exception of a very short period, the interests of the Soviet political elite were in clear contradiction with the interests of the people. One strain of the Soviet elite considered the “world fire of revolution” to be of interest, while the country was perceived as an instrument for igniting this fire. Another, later strain considered it his interest to secure the same level of material consumption as the Western elites, and the country was perceived as an asset that could be "spent" to achieve this goal. It was this generation of elite that finished off the USSR.

    It is correctly said: before Stalin - the STALIN PERIOD - after Stalin and to this day. Only now they are finishing Russia.

    It’s unprofitable at the moment to support this prince. From the revolution and chaos in Saudi Arabia, gesheft and profit are more than from support. I hope the darkest one understands this. Today's news: the Saudis climbed into Europe to sell oil at dumping prices. This is finally impossible! Iran comes to the world market with its oil. It’s either Iran or the Saudis. Iran seems to be an old ally, and the SA is not young either. Meaning to wet these unclear princes unambiguously. It was just the Americans who fussed, a major revolution, nothing to do do not!

    A coup is ripening within the dynasty in S. Arabia. Now in power there are inadequate people who have dropped oil prices, supporting and supplying terrorists in Egypt, Libya, Syria, ISIS and other scumbags.
    "Give a bribe" of $ 15 billion. Russia didn’t succeed for the purchase of weapons + supposedly financial assistance to the economy, they played in the fall in oil prices = they dumped "not salty bread" ... Moreover, their gold and foreign exchange reserves are melting before our eyes, because it’s more difficult to maintain dumping for oil, and discontent over ISIS’s “supply” is growing.
    To all this, they (Saudis) have found their fortunes in Yemen, and Iran, among other things, will not forgive them 450 dead in a stampede during the Hajj, because according to the Saudi "constitution" the King is obliged to protect and preserve the pilgrims, which by the way did not.

    Saudis are Wahhabis, I really don’t understand how to build relations with countries that sponsor terrorism, we forgot about Chechnya, Volgograd, and Nord Ost. If they blow up their friends like September 11th, then you can smile with a shake of their heads and send them home that the GDP does every time, no matter how they try to buy it.
