Kissinger: Russia brought down "the whole strategic alignment" in the Middle East

Washington has lost the role it played in the Middle East over the past 40 years, former head of the US Department of State Henry Kissinger writes in a Wall Street Journal article.




“The disputes over whether the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan for Iran’s nuclear program contributes to the strategic stability of the Middle East did not begin as the entire strategic alignment in the region collapsed. The unilaterally undertaken Russian military operation in Syria was another symptom of the weakening of America’s role as a stabilizing factor in the Middle East, which the United States assumed following the Arab-Israeli war 1973 of the year ”,
quotes an article RIA News.

With the support of the United States in the region, many peace treaties were concluded at that time, “Saddam Hussein’s attempt to seize Kuwait was thwarted.” “America also played a key role in the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. Egypt and Jordan, as well as Saudi Arabia and other countries of the Persian Gulf, helped us in this. The Russian military presence from the region has disappeared, ”the politician recalls.

“Now this geopolitical alignment has collapsed. Four countries in the region have actually lost their statehood. In Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq, non-state actors are torn to power. A large part of Iraq and Syria are controlled by religious radicals, who have declared themselves the "Islamic State" (ISIL) and declared war on the current world order. They want to replace the international system within which there are many states with a single Islamic caliphate with Sharia law, ”he writes.

“The contradictory tendencies, complicated by the American retreat from the region, gave Russia for the first time in their stories the ability to carry out military operations in the heart of the Middle East, ”says Kissinger.

According to him, "Russia is primarily afraid that the collapse of the Assad regime could plunge Syria into the same chaos that Libya is in, bring the IG to power in Damascus and turn the country into a hotbed of terrorism."

Currently, America to some extent opposes all regional players: “With Egypt, Washington has differences over human rights, with Saudi Arabia — because of Yemen, with all possible parties to the Syrian conflict — because of the difference in goals ", Said the politician.

Washington claims that he wants Assad’s resignation, but “does not try to create effective levers — political or military — that can remove him.” "An alternative political structure that could intercept power, if Assad does leave, he also does not offer," Kissinger writes.

      For some reason, I think that Russia brought down not only "the whole strategic alignment" in the Middle East lol
      At the same time, the European missile defense system collapsed, the concept of a "global disarming strike", the meaning of a huge number of "Arly Burkov" and the intentions of "projecting force" with the help of ACG

        --------------------------
        Russia did not "bring down", firstly. How can the “alignment" collapse if the deck is already on the table in a mixed state? Here the old Jew was very confused with his "analysis". The United States thought that by destroying secular regimes (with which it was “very difficult to negotiate” as they believed), they would receive “tame” tribes with which their newly arrived Arabian lawns would negotiate. It turned out that this is not so, the “chaos boy” is growing and becoming uncontrollable, well, or uncontrollable. Enormous geopolitical costs are coming, the hotbed of war and violence is growing, refugees are no longer able to support numerous military groups, allies (satellites or whatever?) Are not obeying ... And Russia is starting to rebuild the statehood of these territories, trying to maintain military force that it’s left ... Something like this ... And the mantras about the "departure-arrival" of the United States, it’s about nothing ... The trade in oil and arms of the Gulf countries is already in the hands of the United States, so the United States is still demonstrating diplomatic impotence, it’s understandable, because the heads of state will not be left soon, the embassy will have nowhere to set. And with those chapters that remained the United States does not want to hobble. In general, the United States, destroying one concept, did not come to another, and this is their next stupidity ...

      I don’t know what he devoted his life to there, but one of those who objectively assessed the situation. If the enemy slipped, this is not the merit of his opponent, but luck, which must be used in his victory. The USA, instead, out of habit began to rake out pockets of the slipped, until he stood up and looked in surprise with eyes. - Almost word for word. I’ll add it from myself, after that, holding the cash in my fist, the opponent yelled with a good mat, how bad his opponent is slipping and thereby giving reason to rush through his pockets ....

        Kissinger: Russia brought down "the whole strategic alignment" in the Middle East

        How can you bring down what the USA has long collapsed there? Kissinger is clearly already talking. Russia, on the contrary, is trying to somehow create peace and stability in this region.

      Yeah, flowers. Berries will be when the lunatics come to power in the States - the same Clintonsha hysteria or the evil B (B) hack (M). We still cannot imagine, muddying the current US policy, personified by Obama, how much worse it could be if neoconservatives rule there. The whole world will feel bad, right down to the global apocalypse. And Kissanger is an enemy, but he is one of the few sane people whose opinion the current American administration is listening to. A very intelligent person and an experienced diplomat, such people, by definition, are not able to put the world on the brink of nuclear war. It’s a pity that there are fewer such people there ..

          Wifi. Therefore, we observe some kind of schizophrenic US policy - the impression is that the right hand does not know what the left is doing. And vice versa. On the one hand, the Clintonoid neocons (under which the special services and the army), and on the other, representatives of the Kennedy and Bush clans. By the way, the late Ed Kennedy "to the kingdom" blessed Obama, not allowing fool Clinton to become the 44th American President.

        I completely agree with you, it is better to deal with sane opponents than with current zombies in power in America. It feels like we're dealing with political idiots. Zombies rule the ball. Where are people worthy of Churchill, Roosevelt, Brzezinski, Kissinger? Shredded the western world ...

      Kissinger is the representative (and voice) of global world power. And global world power is not interested in the hegemony of the United States (all the more so at all costs), but in the stable, preferably generally peaceful functioning of the global planet Earth planet ..... If chaos begins on the planet and wars in every nook and cranny, the founders of the global corporation will lose their income .... It's like at the household level, no owner needs a fire in his own store ....

      And most importantly, do not fall to the level of our enemies.

    A unilateral Russian military operation in Syria has become another symptom of the weakening role of America as a stabilizing factor in the Middle Eastthat the United States assumed upon the outcome of the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, ”

    May God give us the same stability.

    “Now this geopolitical alignment has collapsed. Four countries in the region have actually lost statehood. In Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq, non-state players are eager for power. A considerable part of Iraq and Syria is controlled by religious radicals who proclaimed themselves the “Islamic State” (ISIS) and declared war on the current world order.


    And all this after the start of a military operation in Syria by Russia? Over the years, that's just a little does not match.

    Currently, America, to one degree or another, opposes all regional players


    The United States is the opposite of absolutely everything. laughing

    Currently, America to some extent opposes all regional players: “With Egypt, Washington has differences over human rights, with Saudi Arabia — because of Yemen, with all possible parties to the Syrian conflict — because of the difference in goals ", Said the politician.
    Washington claims that he wants Assad’s resignation, but “does not try to create effective levers — political or military — that can remove him.” "An alternative political structure that could intercept power, if Assad does leave, he also does not offer," Kissinger writes.


    Henry Kissinger belongs to the same galaxy of politicians and diplomats as Primakov and Gromyko, that is, I will not at all sin against the truth, calling them excellent experts in his field, in addition, Kissinger has not lost his influence and at present, of course, to a certain extent. Therefore, his statements always inspire respect and are literate and realistic.

    “Now this geopolitical alignment has collapsed. Four countries in the region have actually lost statehood. In Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq, non-state players are eager for power. A considerable part of Iraq and Syria is controlled by religious radicals who proclaimed themselves the “Islamic State” (ISIS) and declared war on the current world order. They want to replace the international system, within which there are many states, with a single Islamic caliphate with Sharia law, ”he writes.
    This old one has beguiled something with insanity, it is not Russia that has destroyed statehood in countries, it is that intergalactic player with grenades in his hands. The United States stands for peace and against the whole world - a kind of schizophrenic with a chainsaw in his hands, everyone would cut someone and show everyone what his rich inner world is. Tear out the heart there, replace the blood with someone else’s, tear out the kidney, and what - they have two each - one can be cut off ... And he imagines himself to be an exact mega-surgeon

        Yes, I read carefully, only the phrase goes above
        With the support of the United States in the region, many peace treaties were concluded at that time, “Saddam Hussein’s attempt to seize Kuwait was thwarted.” “America also played a key role in the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. Egypt and Jordan, as well as Saudi Arabia and other countries of the Persian Gulf, helped us in this. The Russian military presence from the region has disappeared, ”the politician recalls.
        And it’s just these statehoods in other countries that are breaking, thoughts go further saying that Russia can seize the opportunity and return to the East, so that the pots behind these “kids” can be cleaned up, money invested to build something. Immediately "dictator Assad" remembered. The usual public relations worker reminded of himself - he seemed to say that he was against the party’s general line, saying that the managers were stupid - they don’t know what to do, but they didn’t offer any prospects or actions. Now every second ex is driving at his acting, though everything is tricky, because you can’t argue against anything at all.

    Oh, how is it ... Again, Russia is to blame ... And so, after the collapse of the USSR, everything was quiet and peaceful ... Thanks to America ...

    PS By the way, I was always surprised at their arrogance ... "Role America"..."Америка"... All the time, when they say" America ", they immediately mean the USA ... But the USA is not ALL America ???

    I don’t know what he dedicated his life to there.

    And you need to know.
    but one of those who objectively assessed the situation.

    Yes, as he was out of work, he began to babble differently. But this is not a merit of objectivity, but rather a reproach on his part of the current government. With him, this was not. He was a black cardinal under all US presidents during his political career. Not a single issue of US foreign policy could not do without it. Do you know what it cost many countries and hundreds of thousands of people his famous phrase: "Science in countries unfriendly to the United States is seen as a strategic danger to the United States?" Remember the cone? And where is Iraq now? You can also read about Operation Condor. These are examples of Kissinger's “real politics” - politics, when the most suitable means are used to achieve real tasks, mainly carpet bombing, as practice has shown. And what kind of Jew Russophobe is not even necessary to tell. He even flew to the Chinese to bow the Chinese leadership against the Union. And quite successfully, as history has shown.

    Of course, sitting at the computer, you can speak about anyone with impunity and disrespectfully, but this circumstance is unlikely to positively characterize such authors. This is to say that you can somehow relate to the same Kissanger, but publicly insult a 90-year-old man, even if " the former, "it’s hardly worth it, because he clearly does not fit the role of a Nazi criminal, and by the way, Andrei Andreevich Gromyko (and not only) respected G. Kissenger! Asadulla already wrote above, this is a man from the era of great chess politicians, thinking over the "party" for many moves forward, this is itself worthy of respect, if not imitation. Read between the lines and you will understand that the former US Secretary of State says that now America has lost its influence in the region for many years, but the "fallen banner" Russia raises, but will have to hold very, very tight! hihttp://warfiles.ru/show-98061-genri-kissindzher-predlagaet-kak-spasti-blizhniy-v

      In addition, the accumulation of oil by the Saudis, their construction of liquefied gas storage tanks in Europe, the contract for the construction of an oil pipeline for the Baltic countries indicate a response
      non-military but very strong and heavy measures of economic influence on Russia.
      Apparently, they plan to force us to curtail our activities in the Middle East region by dumping and financially bleeding Russia.

    Remember the times of Yeltsin. There was no Crimea, no Donbas, no Syria. And pensions were paid with a delay of three months, and pensioners cheerfully checked garbage cans in the morning.
    There are labor inspectorates and prosecutors. Has your spouse already filed an application?
    In the company where my spouse works, after checking the labor inspection, employees are charged interest for each day of the delay in salary.

    The position in Syria in the case of the departure of Assad is most accurately described - who is instead? What structure ..?
    If we consider democracy as a model - by analogy with European or American, without
    the mentality of the inhabitants of the country where they are trying to introduce it, democracy, will be the same social system that
    tried to impose on Afghanistan and the expected result - the same as in Libya, Egypt .. or African countries
    where the fall of totalitarianism leads to the collapse of the country and complete anarchy.

    With US support, many peace treaties were concluded in the region at one time, and "Saddam Hussein’s attempt to capture Kuwait was frustrated." “America also played a key role in the war on terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. Egypt and Jordan, as well as Saudi Arabia and other countries of the Persian Gulf, helped us in this.
    everything is as usual - and then the Russians came and ruined everything. it was just spoiling - in the CHAOS region, it is necessary to restore order.

    How much joy, "the entire strategic alignment in the region has collapsed." Moreover, the main enemy himself recognized !!! Well, how can one not triumph here, VICTORY !!!)))
    But I don’t remember the couple, that the enemy recognized our victory without standing at gunpoint))))

    Tactically yes, there is success. But strategically, not a single task has been solved yet. And even the Gauges in the global alignment do not change anything, because the modern enemy is not a state or even separate objects. Our common human enemy is transnational banks and businesses that are not under the control of society and create rules of the game that are beneficial only to them, but binding on everyone.

    Kissinger is the representative (and voice) of global world power. And global world power is not interested in the hegemony of the United States (all the more so at all costs), but in the stable, preferably generally peaceful functioning of the global planet Earth planet ..... If chaos begins on the planet and wars in every nook and cranny, the founders of the global corporation will lose their income .... It's like at the household level, no owner needs a fire in his own store ....

    Yes, they are interested in this global corporation, but they want to be the sole owners in it, in order to command everything only for their own benefit. But the USSR "slipped" and the SGA decided that now they are forever a hegemon and have forcibly drove everyone into their corporation without asking anyone whether they want to join it, and even under the hegemonic conditions. But first they had to “finish off” the slipping partner, and only then drive the remaining ones into the “corporation”. Underestimating the “partner” is now expensive for them! By the way, G. Kissinger, he is one of those creators of the collapse of the USSR, although in the matter of concluding agreements with the USSR he is one of, as they say, adequate politicians, but in general it’s just pragmatism - business and nothing more! And if the SGA policy does not bring dividends, then this is the wrong policy - that’s all he wanted to say, I think so. hi
