Military Review

Echidna comments. Middle Eastern alignment: “the process has begun”?

189
What is happening recently in the Middle East is not surprising, or even some special feelings. Actually, everything went to that. If you throw a torch in a barrel of oil, it will light up. And if the barrel is not one - then such a process will go that just hold on.




Thank God that even this time Russia has nothing to do with it. This is good news. Although I do not exclude the possibility that the break in relations between our new ally Iran and its eternal rival Saudi Arabia will also be the basis for imposing any sanctions against Russia.

Is it worth taking seriously the fact that two of the three leading countries in the region overnight broke off diplomatic relations?

Diplomatic attacks towards a neighbor are not yet a war. Although in not so old times it was precisely with such demarches that disassembly began, developing into a global disgrace like the First World War.

And the two regional "superpowers" of the Middle East have something to share. In general, there has never been a “warm and friendly” relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia. On the contrary, there is a whole heap of contradictions, from which only problems are obtained.

Countries diverge too much in religious, economic and political matters. More precisely, it is easier to find at least some points of contact.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a Sunni monarchy, the Islamic Republic of Iran is a Shiite center of the world. Both countries are the largest producers of energy resources and constantly compete for the markets for their main export products - oil and gas. And also - not least - for the souls of the believers, competition is no less than for oil.

The crisis in his pockets sharpens foreign policy. It is a fact. Do not think that the current state of affairs in the oil business does not affect the Saudis. Reflected, they will not go anywhere. And, if all those who sell oil and gas in their pockets have 60 dollars less per barrel, then Saud is no exception. A lot of money does not happen.

In the 2016 year, the old but still strong player returns to the arena of the Middle East theater. And it makes sense to try to “knock out” the player before he starts playing at full strength.

Of course, the beginning is not the best. Nimr en-Nimr was a very famous person among the Shiites. In general, the execution of a priest did not bring anyone any political points. Moreover, no one has come out openly with evidence that Nimr al-Nimr conducted terrorist activities. Obviously, the essence is different. The bottom line is that Iran is waging (without hiding it) the war for the religious influence of Shiism in the region. And in this light, the elimination of Ayatollah an-Nimr is quite understandable to himself.

Yes, one of the executed was one of the leaders of the al-Qaeda cell in Saudi Arabia, Faris Al-Zahrani. Who were the rest of the 45 people - the question, which in principle is not important.

It is important that none of those who campaign for democracy did not come out with angry condemnations. Still, not every day about fifty people are executed. But what about all sorts of moratoria? What about freedom? Well, okay. What can be one, then nothing else. Passed more than once.
It is clear that the oil crisis in the region requires (more precisely, the Saudis demand) that Iran be pushed back into the sanctions pit. You can release the same, but ... later. When the barrel will cost not 36, and 100 dollars. True?

True. But, alas, the word has already been given. Released.

Then the old and tried way. We, here in Russia, have known this to everyone for a long time. Oh, those barbarians in Iran! How can you talk about anything at all? The glasses were broken, the diplomats were scared ... No, just back into the sanction pit! The only way!

Dipcorpus must be with strong nerves to pick up. But it was too tender for a diplomat to go with BV ... I wondered if Lavrov would learn ...

But - done. And to all, in general, do not care that on one side of the scale two dozen broken glasses, and on the other - a killed priest. Unequal? Yes, but who cares?

I waited, I confess, a terrible cry from overseas. In defense of the executed. But I confess, I waited in that sense, to see how this cry was spat. Not wait. What was recited from Washington, calls for Riyadh and Tehran for diplomatic dialogue, "encouraging diplomatic communication" and calls for "taking positive steps to calm tensions" is, excuse me, baby talk, no more.

The statements of the European Union were made in the spirit of similar reports from Washington. The spokesman for the head of EU diplomacy, Catherine Ray, noted that "the EU is closely following the situation around Saudi Arabia, keeps contacts at all levels and continues to call for keeping the situation under control."

Do not tear the throat there, summoning. And then yell far away ... they will not hear.

Yes, everyone urged not to escalate confrontation in the region. However, the “process has begun,” as one former politician used to say, and now a political corpse.

The situation, of course, is not quite out of control. Moreover, it is unlikely that in the near future a real military conflict is possible, which the “experts” have so actively spoken about in many media. So far, open warfare does not seem to be something real, if only because of the lack of a common border. But. There is Iraq, where it is now a little quieter than in Syria, and, oddly enough, there is Yemen, where the SA and Iran quietly kick each other by proxy. And there is the Persian Gulf.

Of course, all this is pitchfork on the water of the Gulf and is written. There will be no conflict. At least for now. So far, the Saudis do not have the forces to openly confront Iran, however strange that may sound.

Yes, the SA army at first glance has a newer technique than the Iranian one. And what's more, the Saudis would like even more modernization. But at first the Germans flatly refused to sell “Leopards-2” (you see, they do not trade with an autocratic state weapons), then the Russians are considering something for a long time about the sale of 650 units of BMP-3 ... But even in this aspect, the CA army is very impressive quantitatively.

But the quality ... with quality is worse. Over the past 100 years, the Saudis have been involved in three conflicts. And in one, for the disputed territories with Yemen (it was in the 30s of the last century) they even snatched their territories. But this is like a conflict with Russia and Georgia, approximately of such a plan. I don’t take the Gulf War into account at all, there was one 12 for it, and 12 from 11 is purely on dancers from the USA. But in the Arab-Israeli war did not really work ... not at all.
Iranian army looks more impressive. Yes, there is also a lot to be updated, so it’s easier for Iran. Ally drew. Poor erasable. Probably help. But Iran’s fleet is such that in case anything happens, you can forget about free movement along the Gulf.

But this is all the lyrics. The essence is different. The bottom line is that with all the tension of the situation at first glance, it’s definitely not worthwhile to conclude that there will be a war between Iran and Saudi Arabia tomorrow. So far, there is no one to fight, no one, no reason.

But oil on the background of all this went up. What is in the hands of all the participants of the Middle Eastern circus.

    And where and through how can they fight? The question is so interesting arises? Across the strait? Something muddy all like that, it is not clear. The war is not clear, but the struggle for influence is no question.

      Where and through how can they war?

      They are already fighting, in Syria, and in Yemen ... moreover, the SA badly scrubs SCAD missiles on its territory, there was information about the use of the Tochka missiles, and according to the media information, a rocket besides technology was buried by high-ranking SA officers and black-water mercenaries.

      Through the strait?

      Yes, right in the strait. Iran has a naval base on Farsi island, a kind of unsinkable aircraft carrier in the center of the bay - in 100 km from the monarchy coast and in 500 km from Riyadh ... and in the narrowest place of the Strait of Hormuz - the main Iranian base Bender - Abbas. And 20% of the entire oil trade and 35% of all tanker shipments pass through the Strait of Hormuz.

      Iran is armed with anti-ship missiles "Raad", "Nur" and "Kader", which are capable of making the entire Saudi fleet underwater, and the bay - non-navigable. And the Iranian fleet itself commands respect - there are only 24 submarines, of which there are three low-noise Halibuts, in addition to which there are 5 frigates, 4 corvettes and an unmeasured number of missile boats, each of which carries anti-ship missiles with a range of up to 120 km.

                      It must only be added that this is possible only for citizens professing Sunni Islam. By the way, they can study abroad only in Islamic madrassas. And also various troubles, for example, a penalty for the lack of a beard, although you can get lashes and do not even understand why.

The Georgians had more advanced weapons in the 08.08.08 conflict, the tanks were equipped with modern digital devices (LMS), the most accurate GPS maps, satellite imagery, excellent communications, the soldiers moved in Scorpion vehicles, none of them on foot or on armor.

                I do not think pearl, malicious. In SA, Shiites make up approximately 10 — 15%. Not so little. The difference between Sunnis and Shiites is understood mainly by theologians. To the majority of the population, all these differences are said to be a shit. I do not think that the inhabitants of the SA, all the fanatics, TV and Western culture, one way or another, are doing their job.

                    At the end of October, the semi-official news agency Fars News, quoting a high-ranking Iraqi intelligence officer, reported on the capture of an Israeli army colonel named Yusi Oulen Shahak, who was reportedly directly related to the Golani battalion fighting in Iraq on the front line in the province of Salah ad Din (Salahuddin). In a statement, the commander of the Iraqi army said that "the army and popular forces captured the Israeli colonel." He also noted that the colonel of the AOI "took part in the terrorist operations of the takhirist group of ISIL." The colonel was detained along with a group of ISIS terrorists. Its secret military code is Re34356578765az231434. ”

                    Although ... even though the IG, even though An-Nusra, you are all friends ...
                    In December 2014 of the year, the Israeli Jerusalem Post published a report on the details of the largely neglected and politically “explosive” report, which details the UN's observations on the cooperation of the Israeli military with terrorists. The UN peacekeeping force, the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), which has been deployed along the Golan Heights on the border between Syria and Israel since 1974, revealed evidence of Israel’s close cooperation with Syrian terrorists, including the Al-Qaeda Front and Nusrah IG, in the Golan Heights, and the fact that they have continued close cooperation over the past 18 months. ” The report was submitted to the UN Security Council. Leading media in the US and in the West have hidden unflattering details

                What had previously been issued as a "conspiracy theory," in fact turned out to be true. As part of the conspiracy of the West against the Syrian state, Israel, starting in 2011, provided military and material and technical assistance to al-Qaeda in Syria.

                Photographs by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the media with a wounded Syrian rebel in an Israeli military hospital in the Golan Heights prompted such authoritative international publications as The Wall Street Journal, The Times of Israel and The Daily Beast to conduct their own investigation.

                Why did such a high-ranking Israeli official, who had repeatedly called on the world community to fight against Islamic terrorists from Hamas and Iran, shake hands with the “Islamic militant” who wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth?

                It should be noted that the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) of the Syrian and Israeli forces repeatedly reported Israeli military contacts with fighters from the Front al-Nusra, which is closely linked to Al-Qaida.

    Israeli "Channel 7" reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during a visit to one of the bases of the Israeli Armed Forces in the Golan Heights, visited wounded Syrian militants undergoing treatment in a military hospital.

    The usual distortion of corrupt media.

    In fact, the news of channel 7 sounded the same there was not a word about the militants.


    The head of government also visited the army hospital, where medical assistance is provided to several Syrian citizens who suffered as a result of hostilities in their homeland; among them were wounded children.

    It should be noted that during this visit, the head of government for the first time personally talked with the citizens of Syria, who were brought to the Jewish state for treatment, as well as with the doctors who assist them.

    “I’d like to see foreign media correspondents here who accuse Israel of war crimes and violations of the principles of humanism every day,” said Benjamin Netanyahu. “In this hospital you can see with your own eyes that it is here that a clear line is drawn between the forces of Good and the forces of Evil.”

    “Israel is good, saving the lives of the victims of the fratricidal massacre in Syria. This hospital is the true face of Israel. Evil is Iran supplying weapons for this massacre. All the wounded, not to mention the dead, were injured due to the fact that Iran is arming, sponsoring and training the Assad regime in the methods of mass murder of its own Syrian people, ”he continued.

    “It is very important that representatives of the leading countries of the world who meet in Vienna with envoys from Iran know about this. For it is Iran that is stepping up tension in the Middle East region and fanning the fire of the war in Syria, ”Netanyahu said. “Israel cannot refuse to help people who are knocking on its door.”

    By the way, it’s clear with the war - it’s already going on. In Yemen. With pro-Iranian forces on the one hand and the Saudi coalition on the other. Now the degree of confrontation there will definitely increase. Wangyu will quickly sharply increase the fighting capabilities of the Hussites and transfer full-fledged military operations to the KSA territory.

      Calling the Hussites pro-Iranian forces is the same as Churchill's staunch Stalinist. They have their own, special branch of Shiite Islam. They are with Iran because as soon as he helped them. But there are many contradictions.

      Now, all ports, marinas and moorings are bombed in Yemen, and even lonely fishing boats are being hunted. Therefore, the delivery of assistance has virtually ceased completely.

      Moreover, there is real hunger, just the world community does not crawl into conflict. The coalition bombed the entire food base - poultry farms, granaries.

      Saudis may try to destroy the Iranian nuclear program.-They would rather buy the bomb themselves, and to destroy Iran’s nuclear program is Israel’s dream.
      The Saudis do not want to let Iran into the oil market. And the SA and Iran are already waging wars with "proxy" hands.

        What else would you like to see? These are the Arabs. And they fought the last time seriously during the Reconquista. The truth is not very successful - the Iberian Peninsula had to be abandoned. The Jordanian Arab Legion as an example of a combat-ready formation, please do not cite it. this military contingent was formed mainly from the Circassians and Chechens, who at one time settled in the Middle East. And the Saudis have never seriously fought with anyone - I have serious doubts that they can do this, especially given the traditionally low combat capability of the Arabs. To fight is not to trade in oil. The Saudis are more likely to rely on the help of the "international community", which will declare Iran to be another state - a hotbed of international terrorism, followed by the imposition of economic sanctions and the gradual transformation of Iran into a rogue state.
        Iran, too, cannot be called particularly combat-ready - its army needs serious modernization and rearmament - the years of the embargo cannot be erased. The last serious conflict in which the Persians took an active part was the Iranian-Iraqi war, where none of the opposing sides demonstrated either the high military skill of their commanders, or the particularly high combat capability of their soldiers. True, in defense of Iran, it should be noted that its fighters looked somewhat better than the Iraqis, but at the same time they were forced to use infantry tactics fraught with heavy losses, the same "live wave" and "banzai attacks" on the minefields of the fighters of Pasdaran and the IRGC.
        However, the East is a delicate matter. The Saudis and Persians are still traders. Despite all the religious-ethnic and economic contradictions, these countries can still agree among themselves, especially if they have a mutual desire.
        Wait and see.
        I have the honor.

      They bought the equipment. But their natural curvature, and most importantly low combat stability, they will not be able to fix. It’s one thing to maintain morale in the square and with chants. Quite different - under the bullets in the trench. With the second they are extremely difficult.

            From the point of view of some ethnographers, Wahhabis are a relatively new trend, caused by the exacerbation of socio-economic and political conditions between the part of the Bedouin population.

            The emir of the city of Dirya - Muhammad ibn Saud ibn Muhammad ibn Mikrin al-Muraydi - in the XVIII century adopted the ideology of the movement as a state, with the result that the Dirian emirate from a small state in a short time became the owner of almost the entire territory of the Arabian Peninsula. The successor of this state is today's Saudi Arabia.

Although I do not exclude the fact that the breakdown of relations between our new ally Iran and its eternal rival Saudi Arabia will also become the basis for the introduction of any sanctions against Russia.

    I waited, I confess, a terrible cry from overseas. In defense of the executed. But I confess, I waited in that sense, to see how this cry was spat. Not wait. What was recited from Washington, calls for Riyadh and Tehran for diplomatic dialogue, "encouraging diplomatic communication" and calls for "taking positive steps to calm tensions" is, excuse me, baby talk, no more.


    The Saudis said they don’t care what America thinks. In the direction of the UN just spat deliciously !. Isn’t it time for the whole world to remember WHAT is happening among the Saudis ??? Isn’t it time to introduce sanctions and scourge over their military facilities ??? But everything will be as usual, which is not surprising.

    The author as it is childishly discusses. "Oil has gone up." And she (SUDDENLY!) Did not go up after they began to destroy the oil infrastructure of ISIS? Everything else is just a background for the enema that our pilots put in to the terrorists. There is no cheap oil - they buy expensive, that's all. The casket opens simply and there is no need to look for any complicated explanations.

    Similarly, Iran’s conflict with the SA is a petty fuss that goes on the edge of the stage while epic stars are being handed out in the background.

      The entire oil industry of Syria + Northern Iraq = a drop, a fraction of a percent of daily production. However, this is more than enough for someone holding a stream to become a billionaire in a couple of months.

      However, on a global scale, this is a drop.

      Oil goes back and forth on expectations, news and more.

      Yesterday there were 2 key news affecting oil:
      1) Shiite Sunni Crisis.
      2) An attack on the Libyan port, with which they trade and pour tankers, the fall of Bin Javat and the oil reservoirs supplying the port.

    In the 2016 year, the old but still strong player returns to the arena of the Middle East theater. And it makes sense to try to “knock out” the player before he starts playing at full strength.


    I was interested in this phrase of the author, as it is subjectively thought that this is the main reason for the Saudi provocation with the execution. The imam has been in prison since 2012, and was executed in 2016. The provocation is of course extremely rude, but in the current situation in the Middle East it could well have played its negative role. But for some reason I think that Roman is right, and there will be no open armed conflict between the Saudis and Iran. Iran is extremely interested in getting out of sanctions and will not go into open confrontation until the treaty enters into force. But then? Then "more interesting".
    Something like a subjective opinion, colleagues. hi

    It is possible that the US is simply leaving that region (Obama has already spoken about the reorientation of policy towards Asia), but is trying to "slam the door" louder. So that everyone remembers and feared for a long time. And Russia will again be forced to somehow reconcile Iran, with which there is already good cooperation, with the SA, with which relations have also been improving recently. The task is difficult, because the executed person can no longer be resurrected. But when this task is solved, the greater will be the victory of Russia and the greater the defeat of the organizers of all this chaos.

      Iran’s fleet is rather weak, if we are talking about large ships, then they are not tenants in the modern war, even under the umbrella of air defense and air force.

      Trumps of Iran:
      submarines.
      the mass of small boats carrying powerful RCC S-802A or less powerful 703 at 25km range.
      2-3 RCC S-802A or Iranian copies camouflaged under civilian trucks.

      C-802 is Exozet, a pretty good RCC, in the first tanker war, Iran did not have such tools.

      I want to remind you that the Strait of Hormuz from the south controls Oman. The command staff of the Omani army are British contract officers. And Oman borders on the SA and the UAE. So the nipple in the Strait of Hormuz is m. and for the Persians impassable.
      I also recall Russia's proposal to Azerbaijan to sell oil (from the AzR) to it (the Russian Federation). Yes, a little cheaper, and the obligations of the Azerbaijan Republic to foreigners are fulfilled by the Russian Federation. Then we still butted for the Baku-Ceyhan pipeline. Azerbaijanis then refused. But the idea remained. Like, cheap Iranian oil goes to Russia. Oil refinery, in exchange for You-Know-What. And the Russian Federation is increasing supplies for the cordon.

    IMHO, this confrontation is reminiscent of the forgotten one in which Griboyedov died. Well, the then Persia did not like the "status quo" that developed with Russia. The embassy in Tehran was destroyed. They paid off for a long time, and it was expensive. We won nothing.
    Why did we decide that only SA is currently not profitable from lowering oil prices? Is it profitable for Iran? Hungry under the sanctions, but here ... Really, there between Iran and the SA Kuwait wandered around. Well, they might not even notice what squeaked under the tracks. From a military point of view, the SA is not a rival to Iran. The great war between the Arabs and the Persians is doubtful. Iran does not seem to have nuclear weapons, therefore, it will not be able to win. Blocking the Strait of Hormuz - perhaps occupying Kuwait and "pouring salt on the tail" of the SA - will be able to, but will not be able to win. Persians will not win against the Arabs. It is with such a confrontation.

    It's all funny. It should be noted a couple - three nuances.
    1. The budget deficit of the SA the size of a hole from the Titanic. How to make up? - xy, the ONLY budgetary source of income for CA is oil. We need to raise the price on it. How? - to arrange another strained in PersGulf. How did you guys get it? - we'll see it in a week.
    2. Persia lifts sanctions. Slowly, gradually, but - take off. The release of Iranian oil on an ALREADY DECREASING oil market will lead to further lower prices. Do they need it? - No, you have to raise the price. How? - arrange another strain in the Persian Gulf. How did you guys get it? - in a week we will see.
    It seems that the Saudis and Persians play as one team. Not?
    Farther. 3. The Syrian knot is being actively cut by Russia. It's disgusting for the Saudis to get into the "Caliber", no? The turning point seems to be outlined. But the society in the Arabian Peninsula wants feats. Jihad is jelling. In all of these SAs, Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE, the propaganda horse has dispersed the horsemen of intolerance and belligerence. And what to do if MiG and Su-shki began to write a pretzel over the riders? Where to direct the ardor and fury of the jihad horsemen? ----- Woo-oh-oh-from! Another enemy is needed! Without planes, cruise missiles, tanks - in short, as usual weaker. A provocation is needed! Yes! And what could be sweeter for the Saudi ARMY than a disorganized Shiite performance in the sense of tearing apart? On top of everything else, the dynasty's wobbly chair will legally be supported by the gendarmerie and special forces with bayonets.
    Ergo. a) The Saudis will merge the activity of the Wahhabis into the suppression of the Shiite uprising, strengthen their staggering power and reduce the budget hole.
    b) The Persians are given the opportunity to make short-term profit from the sale of oil and (before drowning uprisings in the blood) to strain the monarchies of the PerZaliv, and for a long time to create a smoldering ulcer to the Saudis north of Yemen and in eastern Arabia.
    - Perhaps the Saudi retreat from Yemen.
    - Iraq's participation in these matters is unlikely: ISIS.
    in Russia:
    - It has a time lag for the establishment of interests in Syria, while the Amersa itch; not for long, but it has.
    - may try to play along with Iraq (+ weapons) and Iran (+ S-300). It costs a lot.
    - Slightly reduce the budget deficit (oil + weapons).
    d) CGP (the United States of Pin..stan) traditionally sell everything, buy it, and sell it again, but it’s already more expensive. AND - A LITTLE will do a gesheft (oil + weapons). And - according to their abominable habit, they get into ... mo, but they will offer to clean up after themselves others. Well, or fly helicopters from the roofs of the besieged embassies.
    d) Dervropa something sucks in the corner, similar to chapa-chups. Emigrants will provide.
    There’s a lot more to be done, but in the end ...
    ... and) Israel. I won’t tell you for the whole of Odessa, but Haifa is also great. The fact that the Saudis, Syria, Iran, Turkey and all-all-all get bogged down among the fellow soldiers is so funny! They offend each other a little, and yet they are not up to the Chosen. And tell mine, where will they get the strength and money from, to still mess the Chosen ??? And shaw, and what poac wants, Schaub, this Lafa ended? And sho? Oh shah!

        I'm not saying that they play in a team. :)) I'm talking about the impression. And apparently, the next strained in the Gulf is beneficial to both of them. The logic is simple: Tension in the Gulf -> alarm among oil traders -> increased purchases for oil reserves -> higher oil prices.
        It is FAVORABLE to both. And it is beneficial to Russia. And it is beneficial to the CGP (ind .. to the country). So straining there will grow to 70 - 80 $ / barrel. I think so. :)

            Are you just young, or you have simply forgotten the events in Moscow when our people protested against the US bombing of Serbia. The Persians just "went" further, their mentality is a little different.
            Russia, 1999. Attack on the US Embassy
            Armed attack on US embassy in Moscow in spring 1999 by group extremists patriots during a period of growing anti-American sentiment caused by the bombing of Serbia by NATO aircraft. The attackers made an unsuccessful attempt to shell the embassy with grenade launchers, then they fired several machine guns and disappeared into the car.

            What happened in Moscow at the US embassy at that time:

                Naturally, someone goes spontaneously and someone in the ranks of movements. For example, the US embassy then organizedly gathered under the flags of the Liberal Democratic Party and the Communist Party phoned and purposefully organized, but many went according to their hearts.

        After all, you have, to put it mildly, badly with the Russian language, since you confuse the mass execution with the execution of sentences.

        Do you know what the difference is? Firstly, at one time, secondly publicly (and the official announcement of 47 executed in the media is the current publicity), thirdly, the use of such executions in propaganda in order to intimidate the surviving population.

    But I think that it’s a matter of armed turmoil. Breaking relations, interrupting flights. There is oil, and access to Russia. The Americans slapped Crimea, respectively, the Black Sea, this made it possible to influence Iran and the entire region. They did not grow together in Syria, the gas pipeline to Europe did not work.
    Now they began to act through the SA and their allies. The stupid, gross destruction of Iran or its weakening will lead to the emergence of a pro-American government, and then the energy of the SA and pro-American Iran, ousting Russia from Europe, and jeopardize the economic growth of China and India. Here is such a swing with them, as I think, After all, it cannot be assumed that the SA did not know that relations would aggravate the execution.
    It will certainly be very good if Russia will not actively participate in the mess, but will have to participate. Rather, it is already participating.

    I do not agree with the author about "there will be no conflict". Because it is not a separate conflict, but part of a chain. First, the cowboys did everything for Putin to send troops to Khryukaina and give rise to a big war on the continent. Putin didn’t even get carried away at the cost of his own image and the lives of the Russians in Donbass. Then Daesh was abundantly watered and fertilized to set fire to the entire Middle East region. And then it did not work out through the efforts of the same Putin. Now Shiites are pitched against Sunnis. Do not hesitate, the Americans will sacrifice the Saud and the wreckage of their country will colonize, with a grunting grunt.

    If a war had happened between them, it would have been a present for almost the whole world, including Iran itself, and the irrevocable end of the harmful monarchies of the bay.
    There was information that the Saudis have a pair of tactical charges and their carriers, once bought from China. If so, then they will not only not help them, but will bring even greater troubles to the head, in the form of three superpowers and possibly even Israel. Although the latter is likely to sit on the sidelines and quietly rejoice.

    Russia in the Syrian conflict, in alliance with Iran, was able to attract the Saudis to the problem of destroying ISIS, who, with the support of the United States, vollens-not vollens, helped to strengthen the bandits in this region. The Saudis are allies of the United States, so mattress makers decided to test Russia for "lice". Who will Russia be with in the conflict between Iran and the Saudis? I think we need to adhere to allied obligations with Syria, Iran and Iraq, and the mattress mongrels will eventually realize that for the United States they are nothing more than a bargaining chip in the geopolitical game of a private joint stock company called the US Federal Reserve.

    The bottom line is that with all the tension in the situation at first glance, it is definitely not worth making conclusions that Iran’s war with Saudi Arabia will be tomorrow. So far there’s no one to fight, no one to fight, and no reason.

    There is an opinion that there is already something to fight for. Since the 1980's, when the oil reserves in the SA were first estimated, this figure (estimate) has not been verified or specified by anyone ...
    It has allready passed 35 years. (in words :) Thirty five years constantly annually increasing production. Production, which confidently eats up 2,9-3,2 billion barrels a year, while Saudi reserves mysteriously froze at around 260 billion barrels... Did the Arabs learn to grow oil right underground? I am pleased with this simple Bedouin trick, but perhaps we should still understand how "Stirlitz deceived the Gestapo for the second week", saying that "no one is at home."
    Easily developed reserves of SA melted by the 2012 year and this is a fact confirmed by the sharp increase in funding for exploration for oil. As well as the adopted plans for new R&D in the field of oil production, the earlier the Saudis were even interested. Messages about it flickered.
    Considering that in the Russian Federation, oil and gas companies are slowly but surely moving to the northeast and south to more difficult-to-recover oil fields, the thirty-five-year "standing on Gavar" (Gavara is the largest CA field mystically not decreasing, but even adding reserves.
    Speaking of CA, USA and Gavar (aftershock):
    "The range of estimates of the initial oil reserves for this supergiant is simply amazing - from 60 to 120 billion barrels of oil - twice! This is due to the fact that at the initial stage of operation, many parameters of the field were determined" by eye "(for example, estimates the porosity of the Gavar rock ranges from 30 to 40%, which gives for such a huge reservoir as Gavar, just the same insane spread in terms of oil reserves).
    Starting from 1973 year, as Aramco’s management began to shift more and more from the hands of Americans to Arabs, information about further exploration and drilling of Gavar began to flow in an increasingly thin stream until it stopped completely. The current state of affairs in Gavar is often generally monitored from indirect sources. For example, I met on the Web a serious study that, as the initial information on the number of producing wells in Gavar, did not use Aramco reports, but ... data from American satellite images.
    At the same time, I do not exclude that interested parties in the USA still have access to information on the state of affairs in the oil industry of Saudi Arabia, but these data are not communicated to the general public and are carefully hidden. Matthew Simmonswho wrote the bestselling study "Twilight in the Desert" and unveiled the veil of secrecy over this well-hidden information about the secret cuisine of Arab oil production, by all accounts, simply paid for it with his life."

    Data on frauds with proven and recoverable reserves replaced by probable and requiring research are also confirmed by one interesting document. 1979 years - the report "The Future of Saudi Arabian Oil Production" sent to the US Senate by the Committee on International Economic Policy. In this report, as of 1979 year, Saudi Arabia's total reserves were estimated at 177 billion barrels in the 2P category (proven and probable - proven and probable) and 245 billion barrels in the 3P category (proven, probable and possible - proven, probable and possible). Taking into account production in the 1980s, the balance of these reserves, as of 1989, is much more similar to 160 billion barrels than to the mythical figure of 260 billion barrels, which has invariably flaunts on the Saudi "unchangeable bank note for 20 years. "paper oil reserves. More such documents (really serious and not biased) have never appeared anywhere else.
    Z.Y. There is a lot of oil in BV. For example, the Persians, Yemenis on the shelf between Arabia and Socotra, in the rift of the Red Sea, but there are difficult geological conditions, nature and strong shipping ... in short, the best option is to overcome the Persian Gulf, the last resort is Oman and Yemen. Otherwise, a return to goat farming. M.p. some 50-60 years ago, they were just doing it there, and didn’t even know about oil under their feet ....

    Do not consider me a fascist or something else, but I was thinking. If only a couple of countries did not exist in the world, we would have long ago begun to colonize the Moon. Instead, bathe in hrnoy. Look at this medieval state. Why does it even exist? What good does it bring to humanity as a community of our species?

    I was on vacation in the UAE. I did not have a question why this state exists, although there is also a monarchy. It exists to ensure that for more than 40 years the Bedouins jumped from almost the Stone Age to the 21st. Literally, they moved from camels to supermarkets using their fossil resources. I was not in Saudi Arabia, but I think that the indigenous people live well there, otherwise they would have thrown off the Saud a long time ago. But only 100 families from the entire population of the country live well here, in any case even our media interpret it. And for some reason, no one would ever think of the question of why our state exists? 70 years built socialism with communism - did not work. Now for 25 years we have been building capitalism and it turns out to be some kind of curve. But gas and oil were pumped into Geyropu unmeasured. So answer the question: for what, or rather for whom does our state exist? And who are we better off or Saudi subjects?

    The comments are malicious, but they stink with fresh shit (I mean the news). And the legs can be seen immediately from where they grow, all from one place, because of the Atlantic. The more chaos, the better and calmer the "country" of bucks. The outbreak is Iran and the alliance of Sunni countries - a good fire, oil production will fall, the price will rise to an acceptable level for shale production, which is what the SPS is seeking. Plus the arms trade, America in chocolate. I suppose this time too (the USA) will break off in full.

    But oil on the background of all this went up. What is in the hands of all the participants of the Middle Eastern circus.

    Yah??? Is that in the dreams of the author, the government of Russia and Putin?

    The mob considers religion to be true, the sage - a lie, the ruler - a useful invention. / Seneca, Lucius Anney.
    Previous generations inherited from religious wars. Will get to our generation. When people understand that there is no god, and, instead of it, imposes their interests and leads them a bunch of matriarchy, posing as political affairs for religious.

    Talking about international politics, observing only the tip of the iceberg, it may be interesting, but it is a waste of time. Transfusion from empty to empty.
    Democracy, human rights, the price of oil ... are the levers of the rule of the world behind the scenes, pursuing global goals.
    Different trends exist not only in Islam, but also in other world religions. Even in the Russian Orthodox Church. The principle - divide and rule - works in any social community.
    Thinking people are not so many. Most people prefer to join a group / idea. They are more comfortable being in a herd where there is a shepherd.

    The world has changed: before they really fought, but now stuffing, fakes, lies, insinuations, diplomatic demarches ... There will be no war between Iran and the SA, a bad "example" is contagious. Music plays - everyone sings along, someone lies - everyone starts to lie. Rules of the game...
