I always liked the white guys, who pushed their heads against the native tribes in the war. In war, it doesn’t matter what - beads, water, diamonds, the most healing herb in the world, from which the war of Western TNCs made drugs among themselves, etc. The Russians, while building the Empire, were not out of this line. Only for cover we used the myth that, they say, it all attacked us, and we only fought back. Further, everyone knows - so defended that they created the largest country in the world. As they say, everyone would be so defensive.
The Anglo-Saxons, due to territorial limitations, and not only in terms of the fact that this is an island, acted more subtly - they came (sailed), were guided by the terrain and set off the local ones. True, sometimes they did not succeed. When it threatened to collapse, then, by the way, unlike the Russians, they organized the genocide - India (Bengal), North America.
Many criticize this approach, and find serious arguments to confirm the point of view that Anglo-Saxon imperialism is not like much more bloody than native Orthodox Slavic. But, by and large, this is a matter of taste, and not fundamental irreconcilable contradictions, or as they say in philosophy - dichotomies. In fact, there are no irreconcilable dichotomies between whites in Russia, Europe and North America. On the contrary, in the light of the growth of completely different global contradictions, including religious ones, the Slavs, the Germans and the Anglo-Saxons unites much more than religion. We are united by skin color. And it is much more fundamental against the background of the coming new world military conflict in the form of the Third World War or the First Religious Conflict, unlike the first two, which were Imperial (first MW) and Civilization (second MW).
It seems that it still can not be avoided. This is a minus. But there is a plus. Unlike the two previous world wars, it will not take place on the territory of Russia and, in general, “white” countries. And this, strictly speaking, will mean our (Russia) rightful entry into the community of "developed" countries and the strategic alliance of the West and the North.
In future textbooks stories will write about what started all January 2. On this day, the Saudis carried out the most massive execution in the kingdom over the past 35 years and executed 47 people on various charges (by the way, the number may not be coincidental of the film “47 Ronin”). One of those executed was an influential Shiite preacher Nimra an-Nimr, who was arrested in 2012 for criticizing the royal family and suppressing Shiite speeches during the “Arab Spring”. For which, of course, Iran immediately fit in: "The unjustly shed blood of this oppressed martyr, without doubt, will have consequences, and divine retribution awaits Saudi Arabia," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei resented. The Islamic Guardian Corps also supported the country's leader - “The pro-terrorist and anti-Islamic regime in Saudi Arabia must be overthrown”.
The people also supported their spiritual leader - January 3 in Tehran during a demonstration of protest against the execution of the preacher-co-religionist, the embassy of Saudi Arabia was crushed by the crowd, and in the city of Mashhad in northeastern Iran, because of the arson attack by the anti-Saudi participants protest, burned down several premises. In addition, unrest began in the Shiite part of Saudi Arabia, including in the hometown of the preacher El Qatif. During the day, they reached such a heat that the authorities of the kingdom were forced to send armored vehicles and military units to the east of the country to pacify the demonstrators. Protests were also held in Bahrain and Lebanon. And then there is Yemen ...
And at the very end of January 3, it became known that the kingdom was breaking off diplomatic relations with Iran: Tehran’s diplomatic mission must leave the territory of the kingdom within 48 hours. At the same time, Saudi Arabia itself on January 3 evacuated 47 employees of diplomatic missions and their relatives from Iran. Suddenly, yes? The only question is for whom ...
As Grigory Ignatov notes: “Let's be honest, without political correctness: any aggressive action against the Muslim majority (whether Sunni or Shiite) leads to extremely predictable consequences. There is no such thing: today, some American pastor will burn the Koran, and tomorrow, thousands of Muslims will go to donate blood for sick children en masse to show how good they are. No, we all know what will happen instead - many demonstrations with enraged mobs, a couple of defeated US embassies and some small (or large) terrorist attacks.
The reaction of Shiite Muslims to the execution of one of their respected leaders also could not be forecasted in advance down to the smallest detail. Execution of Nimr, the Saudis could not understand that they spit in the face of Tehran. With the execution of Saudi Arabia, Nimra instantly made Muslims from almost all Islamic countries, including from among her own citizens, her enemies. Was it possible to foresee such a development of events, even without being an analyst? Lord, yes of course! Such effects were as clear as day! But ... then why? Has the power of the CA acted to its detriment? It may sound shocking, but ... yes.
Very good point. Some may imagine that the Saudis, being in their mind and sound memory, accidentally executed a certain “unknown” preacher to no one, in order to receive an “answer” from Iran (the same “unexpected”) in order to break off diplomatic relations on the same day , the next step after which a declaration of war might well be? There is no need to worry about the lack of a common border - one terrorist act in one country, the response in another, and it started ... But the question now is not at all in the process technology, but in the main thing - by chance or not the Saudis executed the preacher?
In my opinion, this was done thoughtfully. First of all, the rapid reaction of the Saudis to the defeat of the embassy in Tehran speaks about this - on the same day they calmly declare a break in diplomatic relations, as if only this was expected. This is not a Russian-Turkish "mezhdusoboychik" - "the boy said - the boy did." The second (or rather, the first) step by the Saudis was made much earlier, and it is precisely this step that indicates that the execution of a Shiite preacher was a deliberate action with a view to sharply raising tension in the entire Middle East. Let me remind you that December 15 "for no reason, no reason" Saudi Arabia decided to create its own anti-Igilov coalition, which included the 34 states.
Some experts then decided that this action does not make any sense. For example, military expert, orientalist, military translator Boris Podoprigora declared: “It seems to me senseless to create such kind of regional coalitions. It seems to me that a different approach than the one that was recognized as the most correct in the 40-s under the threat of Hitlerism, will not work today. That is, this kind of local unification, be it pro-American, be it Islamic or any other coalition against international extremism and terrorism, is initially unpromising, because the terrorist evil itself far exceeds any local countermeasures in its danger and risks. That's the problem. And therefore, to take some private measures, as I have already told you, is meaningless. ”
At that time, this idea of the Saudis initially seemed very suspicious to me, it was just not clear what the meaning of another, already the third, “anti-Igilov” coalition was about. When between the Saudis and the Persians it started, everything fell into place - the coalition from the 34 countries of the Saudis did not create at all against ISIS, which they also finance (!), But against Iran, their main and sworn enemy.
Those. what we have? When it became clear to the chief instigators of the war in the Middle East (such as the Saudis) that in Russia after Russia’s intervention everything was clear, nobody would give Syria to them, they chose the most unpleasant for themselves, but the last remaining scenario ’ and get involved in the war with Iran. Now they seem to be cool guys. But in fact, everything is already over. If the Saudis reach the war with Iran, it will be possible to put a cross on it. It is quite possible that the last visit of Secretary of State Kerry to Moscow, which caused a lot of interpretations and rumors, was a requiem for Saudi statehood. By the way, it was after this visit that Washington recalled twelve of its fighters from Turkey, although they were put there only in mid-November. That is, at first the calculation was one, and then, after a visit to Moscow, everything changed with an accuracy of 180 degrees. And it is on the day Kerry’s visit to Moscow that the Saudis form their coalition. Accident, of course ...
Those. the answer to Grigory Ignatov’s question “why did the Saudis do this?” is simple. The war has already gone to them: the defeat of ISIS in Syria will return the hydra to their homeland. And we wrote about this in September 2015, in the article “Is there a connection between the events in Ukraine and in Syria”: “There is one more reason why the Americans were so nervous. Let's think - what and how will Moscow do in the Syrian direction? It is clear that to destroy the vanguard of US terrorists under the guise of ISIS. That's how?
If you look at the map of this region, then there can be only one answer: Russia will wrap ISIS from the coast and the north, where now, according to eyewitnesses, there are very fierce battles between government forces, ISIL, the Syrian opposition, Kurds, etc. ., to the south, but not in the direction of Damascus, from which they will also be pushed in the direction of Palmyra and further, but towards the western border of Iraq, where Iraq and Iran will chase them for their part. And there IS only one way left for ISIL - to Saudi Arabia! At home, you can say. In this context, it becomes absolutely logical and understandable that Sechin’s refusal from the proposal of the Saudis to become a Russian member of OPEC. It is too early to negotiate. Too many "kings of the desert" have not yet realized. They still do not understand that with such a development of events they will actually have only two choices: “terrible end or horror without end”.
And if they didn’t do anything, but they waited in silence for it, then the kingdom would be taken apart in parts, as it is now going to happen to Ukraine. They have only one option left - to attack themselves at the head of a hastily cobbled coalition and try to draw the United States into this business, which is about to improve relations with Iran. And then the grandmother ends - the Saudis began to play so much in lowering the price of oil that they remained almost without gold reserves. The only nuance is that there is no more ridiculous thing than the "Saudi coalition." Truly, if God wants to punish a man, he deprives him of his mind.
Those. An interesting picture emerges. In order to unleash the Third World First, the Greater Middle East, including Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, etc., was set on fire for fourteen years. Then - four years Syria. Then, for two months, they tried to set Russia and Turkey against each other, and then, in just two (!) Days, they took and pitted "best friends" between themselves - Iran and Saudi Arabia ... and put the world on the brink of the Third World War. Competent work. Only one question arises - why didn't they do it right away, why all these years of preparation? The answer, of course, is. All this time there was bargaining and mutual pressure from Russia and the West against each other, including Libya, Egypt, Syria and Ukraine (although Russia correctly played the 2000 — 2012 period). Then, after Russia's entry into Syria, a very interesting “squiggle” emerged - some configuration appeared that allowed, in a consistent way and to the mutual pleasure of Russia and the United States, to solve the existing problems and agree globally. But as agreed - to unleash a war stick between two sworn friends turned out to be a matter of two (!) Days.
Not a bad combination. It's hard not to agree. By the way, for Americans in general, the excuse is iron - after all, according to the official version, the Saudis were behind the 9 / 11 attacks. That will return the favor. And Russia will return the favor for all Wahhabi affairs, which for many years drank blood from Russia. And all the other Limitrophers have been given a good sign that there will be enough small geopolitical bipods to push the world superpowers with their foreheads - mankind is full of other, much more serious tasks of civilizational development. And the key to technological development (recall the concept of “method” of Rene Descartes, and the “dialectic” of Hegel, and the concept of “tehne” by Martin Heidegger, in general, the entire terminological scientific-natural and humanitarian apparatus describing the existence of modern human civilization) as a guarantee of existence and the destruction of all mankind, as the whole experience of the development of the world has shown, while only the white race owns And once demonstrated it.
