Egyptian military heads to Saudi Arabia for joint exercises


It is noted that "in addition to parts from Egypt and Saudi Arabia, the ground and air forces from a number of Arab and Islamic states will take part in the exercises."

"The purpose of the exercise is to increase the combat and technical effectiveness of the troops and prepare for the implementation of joint tasks by the armies of the participating countries, as well as training to counter challenges that threaten the security and stability of the region," the report said

Earlier, Riyadh announced the creation of an Islamic coalition from 34 countries. The purpose of the union - the fight against terrorism. The coalition "is created on the basis of the right of peoples to self-defense" to "counter terrorism, which has become a threat to the interests of the Islamic nation," the statement said.

      to Saudi Arabia to participate in the exercises of the Northern Thunder Islamic coalition,

      The name speaks for itself against whom rats learn from the Arabian Peninsula, and the pharaohs work off the money of their sponsors.

      Recruit, be vigilant! wink
      The East is a delicate matter. Everyone does not like each other, to put it mildly. And they will always cut each other.
      Although they dressed European clothes and got into European cars, in fact they remained all the same Bedouin-camels, with all the consequences ...
      As an example, their behavior in Europe as refugees.
      This is a mentality and education.

    Well, Egypt doesn’t have much choice. The country lives on subsidies and gifts from the Saudis. Especially now, when prices for exported products have gone down, and tourism has generally gone into a deep crisis because of the terrorist threat.

      So after all, Russia does not turn away from Egypt. Oh, an Egyptian "Cossack" sent to the Saudi camp.

    The purpose of the association is the fight against terrorism.

    Under the slogans of the fight against terrorism, you can engage in any activity: for example, take control of contraband oil from Iraq and Syria or slaughter Israel. That's just the point of such a coalition from 34 countries! Russia alone is doing more than all these vaunted coalitions of American Osovs or Saudis soldier
    The Sputnik news agency publishes material in which it says that the planes of the so-called Arab coalition bombed an engineering school in the capital of Yemen, Sana'a.

    Well, Egypt has soaped itself up on the other side, how tired of all these countries dangling like in a pond, from one coast to the other. They can’t stand firmly on one side, neither ours nor yours, however chameleons.

      Allies can only be acquired by using 2 means. A carrot or a carrot (sometimes mixing or alternating). It depends on political sophistication. We have no way to carve out Egypt, and Arab loans seem sweeter to them than memories of our former friendship.

      East is slippery, Petruha.
      We seem to be friends with Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, and they are building a "goat's face" behind our back. So, there is nothing to be surprised at the Arabian freaks.

    Oh, not so long ago there were articles that we are entering the level of strategic alliance with the Egyptians, a successful combination, "once, once, and in kings." And the base we will have a control channel and sell them attack helicopters on the "Mistral" is ingeniously wise from a geopolitical point of view (well, profit, of course). So, the Arabs put together a rapid reaction corps and the Egyptian army will become the core.

    There is only one threat to the region’s security and stability; it is the United States with its own policies. The Americans and NATO are the culprits of this crime! We must forget about all ideas to introduce democracy in the Middle East or North Africa. There has never been and never will be democracy; it is simply not feasible.

    Well, the decision is correct, participation in the "Northern Thunder" is a "grandiose" event, paid for by Saudi Arabia, I think that money has the ability to disappear, and the more the better. I think that military aid in Yemen SA, from this military unit there will not be many, so they scare Iran how cool they are.

    The Saudis hold the entire Islamic world for a causal place because under them are the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. In addition, they sponsor Muslims performing ummah and hajj, thereby increasing their authority in the Islamic world. However, all these actions are under the control of the Americans, who are trying to control the oil region in their own interests with the hands of the Saudis.

    "memories of our former friendship."
    There has never been any friendship - only calculation and benefit, the Arabs are not original in this. They could not resist Israel on donkeys, they dragged the USSR into the showdown, which gave loans for the purchase of our equipment (which these illegitimate children of the pharaohs obos ... lgal) and wrote off the debts. Wild Egypt has become a military power, and now it's worn out (amers buy more expensive for themselves, they don't write off debts + they still fight for repairs and spare parts). again rushed to "druzhit" but Russia is not the same .... So they rushed to the Saudis.

    So everything is already intertwined in this region, that sometimes it is not clear (with the exception of the SA) who pursues what goals and with whom "is friends". Today they drink tea together, tomorrow you look and are already at war.

    In the same way, one can say that there is a Soviet nation.
