People are not killed by bombs; water is ruining people. Water, as the main geopolitical factor



Amazingly, how quickly all Internet analysts changed their minds about the possibility of war between Turkey and Russia. I remember about one and a half years ago I published articles in which I wrote that war between our countries is inevitable. What kind of obstruction I was exposed to. And Turkey is our friend, the main partner, five minutes a member of EurAsEC and the CSTO, our future gas hub, we all rest there, eat their vegetables and wear their clothes. I was almost accused of working in the West, in his desire to drive a wedge into such a friendship, which has no world analogues.

And it was not long, and the same people radically changed their minds and do not see an alternative to war. But analysts continue to consider themselves fully understand all the intricacies of modern geopolitics.

In fact, there is not a single analyst in our infosphere, there are only publicists. The main difference between the analyst and the publicist is that the latter takes into account only one or two main factors, and the analyst works with a huge array of information, both open and closed. And often the amount of closed information significantly exceeds the amount of open information. Therefore, as if for whom it was not offensive, there are no analysts in our infosphere, only publicists. Because, if they were analysts, they would write their analytical reviews not in open areas, but in closed state and semi-state organizations.

Any article on information resources, primarily a journalistic one, regardless of which section on the resource it falls into: Analytics or Humor. And to blame the author for being so stupid that he did not take into account such and such factors in his article is also extremely silly.

“Do not shoot the pianist - he plays as he can!” (C)

It happened with one of my recent articles Second Middle East Gambit of Russia .

I received a full range of reviews from “Bullshit and nonsense”To "Very beautiful version" и "Everything was like that". However, few people understood the main idea in this article:

“In the Russian infosphere there is a full range of explanations for why Putin and Russia got involved in the war in Syria - from the moans about the defeat, the drain of Russia and New Russia, the collapse of the economy to the cheering patriotic slogans about the brotherhood of peoples, historical the mission of Russia, the protection of all good people and world peace. But no one knows for sure, but in fact - for what?

The president himself speaks about international peace, law, protection of the existing world order from chaos, protection of economic interests of Russia, the fight against international terrorism and the protection of it Russian. The objectives of the right, good and reasonable. But precisely because of the fact that so many of them, and it seems that none of them is not decisive in the decision.

Of course, there is one main goal, which does not recognize the many experts and analysts in the near future. If ever they find out. ”


And do not know, for one simple reason: lack of access to private sources of information and not enough deep work with the public.

Now one of the main, but rarely mentioned, geopolitical factors is fresh water. Access and control over the sources of fresh water is a major cause of most conflicts.

Everyone remembers how quickly and bloody turned into a territory of chaos such a prosperous country like Libya. The infosphere then abounded with probable causes of these events. They also called control of oil, Colonel Gaddafi’s creation of a “gold dinar” for settlements in Africa, undermining the hegemony of the American dollar, and honing the technology of orange revolutions in the form of the “Arab spring” in Libya, and creating an army of Islamist terrorists on its territory transfers to any region of the world. There was no shortage of forecasts. And only one reason, one of the most important, was not indicated by the media and the infosphere - the control over fresh water.

And in Libya, Colonel Gaddafi carried out a grandiose project, the eighth wonder of the world, entered in the Guinness Book of Records - "The Great Manmade River" (The Great Manmade River, GMR).




The great man-made river is a complex network of water lines that supplies desert areas and the coast of Libya with water from the Nubian aquifer. By some estimates, this is the largest engineering project of the existing ones. This huge system of pipes and aqueducts, which also includes more than 1300 wells with a depth of more than 500 meters, supplies the cities of Tripoli, Benghazi, Sirt and others, supplying 6 500 000 m³ of drinking water per day. In 2008, the Guinness Book of Records recognized the Great Man-Made River as the largest irrigation project in the world.

About this project Libya international media were silent, and, among other things, the project exceeds the largest construction projects. Its cost 25 billion dollars.


Banknote 20 dinars a Great Man-Made River


Even in the years 80-Gaddafi began a large-scale project to create a network of water resources, which should reach Libya, Egypt, Sudan and Chad. By the beginning of the war in Libya, the project was almost implemented. The problem was, I must say, for all historical North African region, because the water problem is relevant here since Phoenician. And, more importantly, on a project that could transform the whole of North Africa in the blooming garden, it was not spent a single cent from the IMF. It is with the latter fact, some analysts link the current destabilization of the situation in the region.

In the south of Libya, located four giant underground water tank (oases of Kufra, Sirt, Morzuk and Hamada). According to some reports they contain on average 35 000 cube. kilometers (!) of water. To present this amount is enough to imagine the whole territory of Germany, a huge lake 100 meters deep. These water resources are, no doubt, represent a separate interest. And, perhaps, it is more than an interest in Libyan oil.





This water project by its scale was called the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It provides current per day - 6,5 million cubic meters of water across the desert, greatly increasing the area of ​​irrigated land. 4 thousand kilometers of pipes buried from the heat deep into the earth. Underground water swings over 270 mines from hundreds of meters of depth. The cubic meter of the purest water from Libyan tanks, taking into account all the costs, could cost 35 cents. This cost is roughly comparable to the cost of a cubic meter of cold water in Moscow. If you take the cost of a European cubic meter (about 2 euros), then the value of water reserves in Libyan tanks is 58 billion euros.

Maghreb-Nachrichten reports from 20.03.2009: “At the 5 World Water Forum in Istanbul, the Libyan authorities for the first time presented a project on water supply worth 25 billion. The project was called the “eighth wonder of the world” because it provides for the creation of an artificial river that would supply drinking water to the population of the north of Libya. The work was carried out with 80's. under the leadership of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. And now the project is implemented on 2 / 3.

The aqueduct should reach 4 000 km, and through it water from underground tanks under the desert will flow north. Studies have shown that this project is more economical than alternative options. According to the calculations, water reserves will be enough for 4 860 years, if the interested states, Libya, Sudan, Chad and Egypt, will use the water in the manner provided for by the project. ”










This project could produce a real “green revolution” in Africa, make this arid continent a real flowering garden, destroy the poverty, hunger and poverty of African countries.

And all this without a single cent from the IMF and other international financial organizations and corporations that control the reserves and production of fresh water on the planet. But, more importantly, the project helped in the case of the economic stability and the independence of African countries.

Naturally, the West didn’t like it very much, and he solved this problem radically, hiding behind completely different reasons. Fortunately, the international experience of the IMF and transnational corporations at that time was already. Transnational corporations are extremely active in water privatization.

According to the Masons Water Yearbook 2004 / 5, 545 million people (9% of the world population) already receive water from private providers dosimeters and at market prices. Argentina and Bolivia, first getting involved in it, immediately abandoned water privatization schemes.

Privatization of water goes only by the World Bank and those who stand behind them.

The largest privatization of water:

- Suez, 117.4 million;
- Veolia Environnement (Vivendi), 108.2 million;
- RWE, 69.5 million (before selling its major water subsidiary, Thames Water, to Kemble Water)
-Aguas De Barcelona (35.2 million);
- SAUR (33.5 million);
- United Utilities (22.1 million).

In 1984, the World Bank and the IMF blocked the project of draining the Sudd wetlands and the White Nile water channel in South Sudan, which could turn Egypt and Sudan into a flourishing garden. Under the existing scheme, separatist manifestations first arose in the region, quickly developing into a civil war and the disintegration of a single state. In addition to international organizations, Israel, which was not interested in the prosperity and strengthening of Egypt, but very interested in cheap South Sudanese oil, also had a hand in these events. Of the planned 360 km of the canal, 240 km was built.





In Syria, the situation is more complicated. Fresh water here is one of the power to pressure Assad's methods for solving the problems of the West.

Since its founding, the Syrian Arab Republic has had one major source of fresh water - the Lake of Tiberias (Lake Kinneret) in the Golan Heights. The coast of the lake Syria shared with Israel. Under a far-fetched pretext, Syria supposedly is building an irrigation system that is inconsistent with Israel (although it has not coordinated its system with Israel and Syria), and Israel, which has an oz. The Kinneret provided a third of all freshwater consumption (natural, “sweet”, as they say in Israel), captured and then annexed the Golan Heights, thereby depriving Syria of the main source of fresh water at that time.



Naturally, Israel’s interest in the current conflict in Syria is by supporting the banned in Russia ISIL and Turkey to achieve the dismemberment and disintegration of the state of Syria, and thereby legitimize its annexation of the Golan Heights with Lake Kinneret. Make the resolution of the UN Security Council resolution 17 of December 1981 on Syria’s sovereignty over the Golan senseless and make them de jure part of Israel.

Turkey uses fresh water factor in the war against al-Assad is much bigger.
In 1970-ies on the Euphrates in Syria, the dam and the reservoir named Assad was built in 1980-x Turkey began to build the dam Ataturk, one of the 22-x dams on the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, originating in Turkey and flowing through Syria and Iraq and flow into the Persian Gulf.

Historically, control of the Euphrates was at the center of the conflict between Turkey, on the one hand, and Syria and Iraq on the other. Turkey insisted that the Euphrates is a “transboundary river” and not an “international river”, and therefore is not subject to the norms of international law. Turkey is also one of the three states (together with China and Burundi) who did not sign the international convention on the use of international waterways, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1997.

In the 1987 year, a temporary agreement was reached between Syria and Turkey, according to which, prior to the conclusion of a permanent agreement on the sharing of water resources of the river, Turkey pledged to throw 500 cubic meters of water per second into the Euphrates. The standing agreement was not signed. Syria has registered the existing agreement in the UN in the hope that it guarantees it and Iraq a minimum level of protection of the rights to the waters of the Euphrates.

But Syria is not saved. Turkey became sharply limit the passage of water to Syria.
Very quickly, half of the water of the Euphrates, falls into Syria, became to remain in Turkey. As the level of the fall of the Euphrates on Syrian territory expanded drilling pirate artesian wells, which ultimately led to the depletion of the aquifer.

In April, 2014, Turkey completely stopped the discharge of water into the “Sea of ​​Assad”, and the reservoir itself, like the dam on the Tigris, was seized by ISIL (banned in Russia). This gave many analysts a reason to talk about the beginning of the World War and the Apocalypse, since, according to many prophecies, the Apocalypse will begin from the moment Turkey overlaps the Euphrates.





Coupled with the 2008-11's terrible drought (hello from meteorological weapons and HAARP), Syria from a wheat exporting country became an importing country, people turned into refugees (about 20 millions) and rushed first to the cities, and then to Europe.

Now most of the water sources in Syria are under the control of the LIH (banned in Russia), and he, along with Turkey, is regulated by the water flow of refugees from Syria and Iraq to Europe.

As Ayala Tamri, a professional geographer and ecologist, the creator of the environmental department in the Israeli Infrastructure Ministry, wrote:

“It should also be understood that this war and the wave of emigration caused by water shortages represent only a fraction of the wars and the migration of peoples due to apocalyptic water shortages, which will have a huge impact on future generations ...”

I have given examples only from the Middle East and North African regions. However, such problems are very much related to our country, Russia, the owner of the largest reserves of fresh water in the world. And as soon as the information space begins to stir about projects relating to our rivers and lakes, in particular, Siberian rivers and Lake Baikal, then they are always behind Western interests, the IMF, the World Bank and transnational corporations. They will do anything to control the most expensive resource of the future - fresh water.

          Old joke.

          Recently, researchers discovered the fact that our water systems are contaminated with a hazardous chemical. This chemical is colorless, tasteless and odorless. He kills countless people every year. The government made no attempt to regulate this dangerous infection. This chemical is called “dihydrogen monoxide”.

          The chemical is used for the following purposes:

          In production as solvent and refrigerant
          In nuclear reactors
          In the production of foam
          In fire extinguishers
          In chemical and biological laboratories
          In the production of pesticides
          In Artificial Food Additives
          The chemical is the main component of acid rain.
          Contributes to soil erosion
          Accelerates corrosion and harms most appliances
          Prolonged contact with the chemical in its solid form will cause serious damage to human skin.
          Contact with the gaseous form of the chemical leads to severe burns.
          Inhalation of even a small amount of chemical is fatal
          The chemical is found in malignant tumors, abscesses, ulcers and other painful changes in the body.
          A chemical develops addiction; victims abstain from consuming a chemical could die within 168 hours
          No known purifier can completely purify water from this chemical.
          Despite these dangers, the chemical is actively and unpunishedly used in industry. Many corporations receive tons of chemical daily through specially constructed underground pipelines. People working with a chemical, as a rule, do not receive workwear and coaching. Spent chemical in tons pours into rivers and seas.

          We urge the population to show awareness and protest against the continued use of this dangerous chemical.

          EMNIP somewhere in Texas, one mayor of the city decided to make a "blooming garden" out of the desert so that the residents would not be so dry and hot. Set up artificial lakes, planted trees and began to plant everything abundantly and water it with water. As a result, the air temperature naturally has not changed, but the humidity has increased greatly and life has become simply unbearable. The experiment failed and entered the textbooks. Conclusion, do not need a lot of water. It must be skillfully used.

            I recall two years Russia and Kazakhstan had graters over the Irtysh and two more rivers, now I won’t say for sure whose sources are in China. The Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan referred to the international convention on the use of international waterways, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1997, but China I didn’t sign it, and therefore I built the dams intensely. The same situation was in Kyrgyzstan. As now, I won’t say anything, I haven’t seen anything on the network for a long time.

        "In 1984, the World Bank and the IMF blocked a project to drain the marshes of Sudd and the White Nile Canal in South Sudan, which could turn Egypt and Sudan into a blooming garden."

        But such a grandiose project could lead to a global environmental disaster. Not only does a huge number of migratory birds of Europe winter there, but also the drainage of these lands can greatly change both the regional and the global climate. No one will really say or predict what will happen if a huge water reservoir disappears giving an enormous evaporation of water. What will happen to Neil?

          I agree with you, our country has accumulated rich experience in draining bogs, and there is also information about what this led to, here is one such example:
          UFA, Nov 9, 2015. / IA Bashinform, Evgenia Syutkina /. On the eve of the initiative group, consisting of scientists, deputies of the State Assembly - Kurultay RB, members of the regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society in Belarus and representatives of the People’s Party "Green Alliance", conducted a scientific expedition to the Berkazan swamp in Davlekanovsky district of the republic.
          It is located in the basin of Lake Asly-Kul. The name "Berkazan" in translation from the Bashkir, Tatar language means "cauldron", "deepening". The trip was organized by the deputy of the State Assembly, the first deputy chairman of the branch of the Russian Geographical Society in Belarus Vyacheslav Abroshchenko. The event was held as part of the preparation of the forum on the conservation of Asla-Kul.
          In the mid 70-ies of the last century, a company began to drain swamps in order to increase sown area. The drained area of ​​the swamp of more than 1000 hectares of land was to be added to the arable land of the district. As a result of the drainage, the water really left, the swamp dried up. We decided to do the crops. But after a couple of years, something stopped growing on this plateau. It turned out that the soil is very acidic. After they were convinced that it was pointless to try to get any kind of crop, they waved a hand, stopped doing anything, and this area gradually turned into a wasteland.

The average annual rainfall is 700-1000 mm, with more precipitation in the southern part than in the north. The rainy season lasts from April to September.

        And you don’t have to wait, an example of a chip is a bank card (the one with the chip).

When the public found out about this in the USA (someone leaked information from the NSA) scandal and hysteria were widespread. And then everything was released on the “brakes”, a bunch of experts “proved” that this is not so. And about the fact that the monetary transactions conducted from the card, you can be tracked without any beacons - this is a no brainer. There are also smartphones.

      Perhaps you got a couple of minuses not at all for understanding the water factor, but here's the reason (this is only a version)
      "Water and its severe shortage as a result of Assad Sr.'s illiterate agrarian policy, as a result, the impoverishment of a bunch of peasants, is the main reason."

      There is perhaps a more important factor of Assad Sr. - advances in medicine, uncontrolled population growth especially in rural areas and, as a result, filling nearby cities with lumpen (as mentioned by the "Professor"). This happens regardless of whether there is a lot of water or not.
      And again carefully read how EXACTLY (about Assad the Elder) you wrote in the commentary to the previous article. "-" definitely not mine.

Therefore, the "law" does not prevail in the world, but the "right of the strong" dominates; therefore, the choice is not big either on your knees or prepare for war. requestYes, I still think that the main geopolitical factor is energy, water is important, but not the main one.

    "... every time people are shown the obvious, it becomes a revelation for them ..."

    There are a lot of such life support resources. Equally with water, it is important for a person to have access to low-cost energy resources, air, inhalation of which does not lead to deviations in the development and functioning of the body, to an environment in which synthesis is possible (agricultural and land reclamation, if we are talking about a fertile soil layer or the cultivation of fish species in the aquatic environment) of food products that do not lead to deviations in the development and functioning of the body.
    All these resources, throughout the history of mankind, have always been monopolized under one or another reason.

    By the way, in Africa, a little to the south - in the upper reaches of the Nile, a project of similar scale is brewing. We are talking about the creation of a hydroelectric station, which will close the problem of energy supply to a group of countries, and a dam for it. As a result, the water supply of a number of countries downstream is dependent on the functioning of the created dam. And then - see the article for possible scenarios.

    ! Such a project almost alone to stir up money and even with your own money! And now you’ll think about whether someone needed oil when under their feet even greater wealth for Africa-WATER!

    But it should be noted that this was done to the proceeds of the export of oil — and cheap gasoline and water for the population! We also have gas and a turbid solution (called water) of 140 rubles per cubic meter.
    It’s time for us to talk about providing water to the South of Russia. Nothing will grow on the Gulf of Ob, the climate is not the same. Our precious water will drain into the ocean.
    What import substitution can be done when any vegetable loves water. Don Don Father can be wade soon! I have brothers, farmers who suffer without water, if Don crushed local rivers and even more so. Our city receives industrial water for funky the price, pumps are often turned off and pumped, the sludge is pumped from the bottom. The city reservoir has dried up. Here in the south we have climate, human resources, and energy, we just don’t have WATER. Not only wheat could be sown, it would be water-Rostov the fields would flood Russia with fruits and vegetables. hi

    Arabs, in my opinion, also suffer a little gigantomania in terms of their water projects, just like we did in the USSR before. They would learn from their sworn enemies - Israel to respect the water (drip irrigation, biofiltration, etc.). And they (Israel) set up desalination plants quite a few. So there would be a desire and technology.
    But to give birth to children thoughtlessly and constantly fight among themselves, neither water nor food will soon be.

    Delirium, with some interspersed with common sense, in terms of the fact that water as well as air are the main components of human life. At first, the author tries to prove that there are no analysts, but there are only publicists and he is one of them, but with the beginnings of analytical thinking, as he once predicted the confrontation between Russia and Turkey. As a result of compiling the opinions of various publicists on a given topic, the author, as a venerable analyst, issues the final truth in the form of the article "People Do Not Bomb Ruins, Water Ruins People. Water as the Main Geopolitical Factor", while the title of the article, to put it mildly, does not corresponds to what is discussed in the article itself. So what does water kill people and the main geopolitical factor of what is water? In the article, the author concludes that water is one of the main factors of all wars (and what is the name - the main factor), and for the war in Libya, water is the main factor, and for the war in Syria one of the main (and the main factor the author will not call it a military secret, and the article is not about that.) The West wants to establish control over all the world’s fresh water resources (as the author himself imagines this he never said). 9% of the world's population receives water from private companies at market prices (why not 99%, or today there are many countries in the world where they do not pay for water, and water supply organizations are state-owned charities?). The topic is of course interesting, only the author did not make it clear whose point of view he covered on his own or those publicists fragments from the articles of which he composed. In a simple way this is called plagiarism or the use of other people's thoughts. Something like that. Nothing personal.

    Since its founding, the Syrian Arab Republic has had one major source of fresh water - the Lake of Tiberias (Lake Kinneret) in the Golan Heights. The coast of the lake Syria shared with Israel. Under a far-fetched pretext, Syria supposedly is building an irrigation system that is inconsistent with Israel (although it has not coordinated its system with Israel and Syria), and Israel, which has an oz. The Kinneret provided a third of all freshwater consumption (natural, “sweet”, as they say in Israel), captured and then annexed the Golan Heights, thereby depriving Syria of the main source of fresh water at that time.

    Seriously? And I thought that the war was for completely different reasons. For example, non-stop shelling from Syria.
    On the account of how Israel "incorrectly and negligently treats water supplies," I will be silent. I do not want to offend the author. After all, he worked. wassat

    Golan has never been the main source of water in Syria. This is a materiel.

    Naturally, Israel’s interest in the current conflict in Syria is by supporting the banned in Russia ISIL and Turkey to achieve the dismemberment and disintegration of the state of Syria, and thereby legitimize its annexation of the Golan Heights with Lake Kinneret. Make the resolution of the UN Security Council resolution 17 of December 1981 on Syria’s sovereignty over the Golan senseless and make them de jure part of Israel.

    Rave. The Golan is liberated and annexed by Israel forever and will remain Israeli regardless of who is in power in Syria, whether Syria will be united or divided. And most importantly, we did not ask for the opinion of Damascus, we do not ask and we will not ask.

    Yes, here about this event
    Attempts to find oil in southern Libya in 1953 led to the discovery of gigantic underground reserves of drinking water. In the 1960s, the first thoughts on the construction of an irrigation system appeared, while the immediate work on the project began in 1984.

    So, in 1984, the first phase of the project began, and it cost about $ 5 billion. It was implemented by South Korean specialists in modern technology. Dozens of Arab and African heads of state and hundreds of other foreign diplomats and delegations attended the festive opening of the project. Among them was Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak; King of Hassan II of Morocco, Sudanese leader General Omar al-Bashir and President of Djibouti Hassan Djulid. Muammar Gaddafi presented this project as a gift to the third world and told the celebrants: “After this achievement, the US threats against Libya will double ... the United States will do everything under a different pretext, but the real reason will be to stop this achievement in order to leave the people of Libya oppressed.” Mubarak in his speech at the ceremony emphasized the regional importance of the project. Gaddafi also asked the Egyptian peasants to come to work in Libya, whose population is only 4 million inhabitants.

    - all the Soviet newspapers in 1984, probably including the Gudok newspaper and right up to the Literary Newspaper, wrote. There was a big article in The Around the World Magazine.

    Dear! This topic “hooked” me, because there was NO DRINKING WATER in my first garrison. The first acquisition of personal property in August 1980 was two enameled buckets with lids, in which my wife and I took water on a column near the station. Dalnerechensk-1 and taken by bus (15 kopecks per person and 20 kopecks of luggage) to the Malaya Vedenka garrison. Drinking water was imported. I won’t describe the first two winters, you still won’t believe it. In the third year, he settled in a 2-room. apartment in a panel house. First of all, I personally welded a bath pad to install a "water purification station." Local water was high in iron. After half an hour, a rainbow film of iron salts appeared on the surface of the bucket. The first in the "station ..." was a coarse filter, in which layers of sand and gravel alternated. The upper layers, due to coking, were replaced once a week by pre-washed sand. The second was the same galvanized tank with a faucet, at the bottom of which was annealed and ground wood (ash!) Charcoal placed in a cover / forgive the woman reader! / From old mylar tights spouses. Next, under these tanks was placed the Rodnichok filter, with water supply from below. Water after the third step, that is, after the Rodnichka was used to prepare children's meals and for family tea. Water after the "second step" / fine filter / It was used for everyday needs up to washing underwear and cooking (after boiling and sludge) only for myself, but not for children. Then I realized what the first step of the so-called “Officer triathlon” = “water, firewood, slops” means "I won’t describe the second one, because I grew up in the village and there was no problem cutting and chopping wood for me. But slop, it’s a separate story to write. Ah, you still won’t believe it ...

    Water is of course an important resource, but the causes of wars are not in it, and the author himself got confused and is trying to confuse us. Causes of Wars IN REDISTRIBUTION OF ALL RESOURCES! Specifically, in Libya it is oil (nobody needs water there except for the Libyans themselves). Syria is a transit corridor to Geyropu from Qatar. By the way, Russia is now the tidbit FOR THE WHOLE WORLD in so many resources and it is (thanks to its stupid leadership) now in the greatest danger of its entire existence.

    Good article. Few people know that in ancient times, Libya was a flourishing country with a high culture - a mighty river flowing along it to the north, comparable to the Nile (archaeologists conventionally call it the "second Nile"). But due to a 12-point earthquake, the soil was raised, and the river disappeared. Almost the entire population was forced to migrate to the Nile Valley - there, "suddenly, without any background," the ancient Egyptian civilization arose. But the constant rains in the tropical zone of Africa have not disappeared anywhere - and therefore the water that fed this river, too! Water began to go underground and formed the underground reservoirs mentioned in the article (EMNIP, collectively they are called the "Sea of ​​Savornin"). The countries of the Sahara had a great chance - but with the help of 3,14ndos they did it..al!
