Syria is the Middle East Crimea

30
Who owns Syria, owns the world. This is fashionable to talk about today. This is an exaggeration, of course, but for the Middle East, Syria is indeed a key country. This is a direct access to the Middle East to the Mediterranean, for example, the monarchies of the Persian Gulf, led by Saudi Arabia.


Syria is the Middle East Crimea


Syria is not only unique in its culture history and the ethnic composition, but also because it was the only one in the Middle East that had an independent serious resistance to the American “democratic” expansion, supported by the Gulf monarchies, that is, an attempt to carry out a coup d'etat, provoking civil strife within the country, according to the Libyan scenario. Experts-orientalists assigned one or two years to Syrian resistance - the country has been holding for five years now! True, with the support of Russia and Iran.

Syria is unique in that its government did not try to sit “on two chairs”, like the Yugoslav Milosevic, like Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein. She made a choice in favor of Moscow, and confirmed it by providing Russia with a naval base in Tartus, the only Russian base in the entire East. The geographical position of Syria also affects: it is much closer to us than Libya, so Russia could provide it with real assistance in a crisis situation, which was impossible in Libya.

But why does Russia need Syria? Some major experts argue that, only for the distraction of attention from Ukraine, and this endorses Bandera "experts." It's all Svidomo nonsense. In fact, Russia acts according to the “Crimean scenario” in order to avoid in Syria serious consequences for national security.

Officially, Russia destroys ISIS “caliphate” ISIS as a base for terrorists against Russia in Syria, this is true, but not all. The full truth opens if you ask: why did Washington plan to bring its puppet government to power in Syria?

Washington in this region does not have its own bases, neither the Air Force nor the Navy, and today it is forced to ask permission from Turkey to use the Air Force Ingerlik base for operations over Syria. The nearest US bases are located in the Persian Gulf, but they are too far away. There is, of course, Israel, but with it, too, everything must be coordinated, as with Turkey.

In this sense, Syria could have become for the United States an “unsinkable aircraft carrier” in the Mediterranean, as was the Crimea in the Black Sea. The situation is similar. Washington apparently wanted to put its satellite in power in Syria, with the help of the monarchies of the Gulf, to create a powerful military base in the country, as he did in “independent” Kosovo, where the largest US Air Force base is located in the region.

The United States would share Syria with the monarchies of the Gulf, leaving behind economic interests, the gas pipeline to Europe, and appropriated military-political ones. At the same time, Syria would become the Saudis' Salafi platform for the cultivation of fanatics for the entire Middle East and Europe, and a counterweight for Iran. In fact, the Salafi Al-Qaeda, represented by An-Nusra and other Islamic extremists, with the financial support of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, took up the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad. As it was in Libya with Gaddafi.

When An-Nusra got bogged down in battles with the Syrian army, ISIS appeared on the scene, successfully armed with the American weapons from warehouses in Mosul (Iraq). And he came to the aid of Nusra to finish off Bashar Assad. Similarly, on the Euromaidan in Kiev, the neo-Nazis of the Right Sector, at the suggestion of the US Embassy, ​​came to the aid of the “peaceful protesters” to finish off President Yanukovych.

It was then that Russia repeated the “Crimean scenario” in Syria, only instead of “polite people”, the Russian Aerospace Forces flew in. Amended to the fact that Bashar Asad still held the capital and the country's most important communications. It was no longer possible to hesitate: either to surrender Syria to Washington for a base, or to create an Air Force base there and help Assad. Moscow chose the "Crimean scenario." Why?

The US Air Force base in Syria allows us to keep our entire North Caucasus under Turkey under operational attack, through Turkey, the distance allows it. If the US base in the Crimea threatened the North Caucasus and the south of Russia from the western direction, then the base in Syria - from the south, that's the whole difference. Occupying a Syrian ground, Russia, on the contrary, threatens the southern flank of the Americans in Europe.

The base in Syria gives Russia and other operational capabilities. First, to combat terrorists in the distant approaches throughout the Middle East, which is officially announced. However, it allows, if necessary, to “project power”, for example, on the Persian Gulf, the financial and ideological source of Salafitism. Thus, Russia can influence the formation of political weather in this region, which is difficult to overestimate.

Influence in Syria Russia will also have to share, but with Iran. Iran’s interests are in supporting the friendly government of Bashar Assad and, through him, to the Mediterranean Sea. Russia and Iran are also united by a common threat from the United States. Iran’s leader Khamenei, during a recent visit to Iran by Putin, made a frank statement: “US plans to dominate Syria threaten Iran and Russia.” Putin does not mind. The delivery of four C-300 divisions to Iran at the end of this year is an eloquent confirmation of this.

The Iran-Russia-Syria combination, with Iran’s actual control of Iraq, seems to be the strongest in the region, the United States and its monarchist satellites will have to retreat from Syria. Moreover, Europe felt threatened by the transformation of Syria into a Salafi extremist state under the wing of Saudi Arabia, with or without ISIS.

    The combination of Iran-Russia-Syria, with the actual control of Iraq by Iran, seems today the strongest in the region

    Scary, already terrible.
    The P.I.d.o.s.s, of course, got scared and let us into Syria.
    Now, instead of one front in Ukraine, we have formed as many as three - in Ukraine, in Syria and with Turkey.

This is the direct exit of the Middle East to the Mediterranean Sea, for example, the monarchies of the Persian Gulf led by Saudi Arabia

      strange statement, the author looked at the map?
      Is Syria the only Mediterranean country?
      Does Syria have access to the monarchies of the bay?
      Syria is unique not only for its culture, history and ethnic composition

      this uniqueness now also wets each other
      Syria is unique in that its government did not try to sit "on two chairs", like the Yugoslav Milosevic, like Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein

      still sat, remember the 1991 Gulf War

      The full truth is revealed if you ask the question: why did Washington plan to bring its puppet government to power in Syria?

      then why Russia, too (Assad holds)
      At the same time, Syria would become a Salafi platform for Saudis to cultivate fanatics for the entire Middle East and Europe, and a counterweight to Iran

      Controversial statement. especially regarding the counterweight to Iran. it would be right - they would end Iran’s influence on BV.
      just not clear. Russia is fighting for Iranian interests?
      When An-Nusra got bogged down with the Syrian army, ISIS appeared on the scene, successfully armed with American weapons from warehouses in Mosul (Iraq). And came to the aid of Nusra to finish off Bashar al-Assad

      C'mon, there are practically no places. where Oska Asad fight with ISIS. their fronts do not touch. Kurds and SSA fight with ISIS
      The US Air Force base in Syria allows us to keep our entire North Caucasus through Turkey under operational attack

      even more funny, these bases around Syria. Blich to the Caucasus at the Amer Sea.
      From Iraq and Turkey, to Georgia (if desired, Romania. Bulgaria).
      The base in Syria provides Russia with other operational capabilities. Firstly, to fight terrorists at distant approaches throughout the Middle East, which is officially announced

      how ?

          Fools - what are we minus? The author believes that the threat to the Caucasus, but this is nonsense. The US Air Force base in Figirlik is closer to us, and much more convenient. If the pendos were planning the air force base there, then with completely different goals.

        Putin said clearly. There, on the border with Turkey, a corridor for all kinds of ISIS and others like them. It’s not just about the Turkoman.

        Again, Turkey buys oil from ISIS. Remember the burned columns of fuel trucks.

    There is war in Syria, and there is no war without losses ... Turkey will pay for a stab in the back, but ... revenge is a cold dish. In fact, Turkey has set itself up, there is never a silver lining. And some of our “populists” have nothing to do with the people, Miller and Gazprom have done much more for Russia than these “populists” who can only write denunciations, and the sharply increased level of the RF Armed Forces says that Gazprom is really our property.

The most interesting majority of those commenting were not even in the army.

    It is clear that it was necessary to get into Syria, both for political and economic aspects. The question now stands with the Turks - the answer must be tough, because these baboons do not understand anything but strength. The NATO of the Turks has already been merged, they said "this is the case between Turkey and Russia," even the staff members confirmed that our plane was shot down in Syria.

    The Turkish attack on our plane has already been assessed by the "civilized" community. It is indicative that only the Maydan Natsiks applaud. So the vultures of the West are wary of contacting us. Nobody expressed support for the "loser" Erdogan. This frees our hands.
    We will bomb harder !. The Supreme could listen to Kadyrov’s words - to destroy the shaitans in their den. Just in the north of Syria, where the traitors of the peoples of Russia are atrocious, are the Igilov shifters from the CIS countries. Wickedness must be cleared from the EARTH to the last!
    And Erdoganchik with his sons, it's time to strangle themselves from the closure of the business on the blood of the Syrians. VKS and Navy will actively help! Yes, and the gas valve can be closed!
    And our tourists should go home! Lavrov unequivocally said about the threat to life!

      Syria must be "held back" and saved from terrorists no matter what, and this is not only a duty towards an ally, but also the image of our country. We must show that we have again become a power that will have to be reckoned with for all arrogant countries like the USA, Israel, CA, Qatar and others who have a very strong idea of ​​themselves after the Soviet Union was destroyed.
      And it is necessary to "knock together" a bloc of countries in the region from Syria, Iran, Iraq and allied countries, it would not hurt us to bring Hezbollah to power in Lebanon.
      If we do not do this, the region will be "swept by" a wave of terrorism led by the regimes of Israel and various "black" monarchies.

    Do not let oil-producing countries to lay pipelines through Syria. The task is not bad either. Having a base of the Navy / VKS is another plus.
    To win, in the literal sense, the loyalty (already tangible) of the Syrian people is a plus. Show strength and endurance, respect for the shrines - for the East is critical. To give to the teeth of nonhumans, bandits - makes you respect not only in the East, but also in the West. Already an army of bandos just can’t be created in the region. - calmer in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and so on.
    Training for the army, intelligence, arms testing is a plus. Arms advertising is a plus. Advertising the country as an honest advocate is a plus. The inconvenience of the US Navy .... it's for a snack.
