The alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia was mutually beneficial before the start of the 2010s. Saudi Arabia, like Turkey, became the tools of London and Washington to destabilize a huge region - from North Africa to Iran. A new mutation of radical, “black” Islam - “Caliphate” was created. At the same time, the countries of the NATO bloc, the USA, the Arab monarchies and Turkey demolished a number of countries that maintained the left-nationalist ideology and maintained stability in a vast region. This is primarily Iraq, Libya and Syria. On the verge of collapse, 85 million Egypt has been and remains, the demolition of which will cause a huge wave that will finally “drown” the Middle East in chaos.
The main reason why the masters of the West began the chaos and defragmentation of the countries of the Middle East (and in the whole of Eurasia) is a global systemic crisis. The “Matryoshka Crisis”, which includes the biosphere-ecological crisis, the crisis of capitalism and Western civilization, the crisis of man himself (his involution, degradation), the crisis of the white race, the crisis of biblical culture (Christianity and Islam). As a result, the global financial and economic crisis is only the tip of the iceberg.
The masters of the West see the problem and solve it in the usual way. They unleashed a world war in order to “reload the matrix,” that is, to destroy the former world and create on its fragments the so-called The new world order is a non-slave civilization with castes of gentlemen and "two-legged tools." The war allows to solve the main tasks: to destroy or extremely weaken competitors, having received their resources at full disposal; move to a new way of life; create a new global religion - ecumenism, which will replace the old projects; to utilize most of the biomass, and dramatically reduce the level of consumption of the remaining humanity, except for the caste of the “elect”, which will solve the problems of ecology and restoration of the biosphere; create a sustainable system, since the rest of humanity will be so lowered that it simply will not be able to resist the “gods” that own the most advanced technologies, etc.
The main blow is delivered to the states of Eurasia. The British Isles, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand are the “islands of security”, the core of the future new order. In the role of "collective Hitler" appears radical, "black" Islam. This mutation of Islam created the Anglo-Saxon, Saudi and Turkish secret services. Its basis is jihadism and Wahhabism, which oppose not only “infidels”, but also traditional Islam. "Caliphate" acted as a ram for demolishing the old states and led to the creation of the Middle East Front of the Fourth World War. Major hostilities are currently under way in Syria and Iraq. Another bridgehead of the “Caliphate” is Libya. However, the metastasis of this tumor has already spread from Central Africa and the Middle East to Europe, Central Asia and Indonesia. The latest large-scale terrorist acts in France and Belgium are a sign of the approach of activation of the so-called. hybrid, irregular war on the territory of European states. Europe is completely unprepared for such a war. In 2015, the “Caliphate” began minting gold dinar and silver dirham, that is, challenged the “petrodollar” system.
The fourth world war (the third was the so-called cold war between the USSR and the West, it ended in defeat and the collapse of the Soviet civilization) - this is a war of civilizations. The masters of the West caused a clash between the North and the South, the western (post-Christian) -Islamic civilization. Also in the confrontation with the "black" Islam Russian civilization is involved. Next up are Indian and Chinese civilizations. In particular, the conflict between India and Pakistan, which was previously created by the Anglo-Saxons, can be intensified at any time. The current conflict between Christian Armenia and Muslim Azerbaijan also has the character of this civilizational fault. According to the architects of the New World Order, the civilizational war should end with the mutual destruction, the almost complete destruction of the old Europe, the Russian and Islamic civilizations, the collapse and the extreme weakening of the Indian and Chinese civilizations. That is, Eurasia is becoming the battlefield of civilizations and will suffer major losses.
Saudi Arabia (plus other monarchies) and Turkey in this scenario acted as figures in the Big Game. London and Washington used them as skirmishers who set fire to a huge region. Their large resources, including the religious sphere, finances, and possibilities of informational influence, were used to destroy previously relatively stable states. They were beaten on key points, pillars that kept a huge region in balance: Iraq - Saddam Hussein, Libya - Gaddafi, Egypt - Mubarak, Syria - Assad. Egypt was saved literally at the last moment, when Riyadh realized that its collapse would lead to chaos in the Saudi kingdom.
Saudi Arabia and Turkey solved the problem of strengthening their positions in the region and gladly crushed competitors. In addition, they were promised a "carrot" - Saudi Arabia and Qatar were hoping to lead the project "Caliphate", to unite the Sunni world and to destroy the Shiite Iran. The Turkish leadership, embarking on the path of Islamization of the state, tried to push its project “Caliphate” - “Ottoman Empire - 2” into the future, claiming leadership not only in the Islamic, but also in the Turkic world.
However, having supported the United States and other Western countries in dismembering Iraq, Libya and Syria, as well as fomenting a big war in the region, the Arab monarchies themselves put themselves at risk. The funnel of chaos, having swallowed up the first blows of the state, began to absorb new territories. The war came to Turkey and Saudi Arabia. The Saudis are bogged down in the war in Syria and Yemen, the Turks in Iraq and Syria. At the same time in Turkey there was a threat of civil war - the Kurdish problem. There was a threat that the Arab monarchies, Turkey and Egypt, supported by the Saudis, would also be destroyed, dismembered.
In Riyadh, apparently, they realized that they themselves were under attack. First, the United States withdrew its main forces from Iraq and Afghanistan, sharply reducing its military presence in the region. In 2013-2014 Obama refused to send American Aviation for the bombing of Syria, on which Riyadh insisted. Also, Americans did not supply some types weapons Syrian "moderate" gangs. Then anti-Iranian rhetoric abruptly subsided. Although before that, the United States and Israel had actually threatened Tehran with war, which was in the interests of Saudi Arabia. Things reached the point that sanctions were lifted from Iran (partially), financial assets were unfrozen. An agreement has been reached on the Iranian nuclear program. Iran got the opportunity to start supplying black gold. It became obvious that Obama was playing the Iranian card as opposed to Saudi Arabia. In addition, in the conditions of the Middle East conflict, the United States relied on the Kurds in Iraq and Syria. That is, continued the course to defragment the region.
For Saudis, the withdrawal of the main US forces from the region and a decrease in US dependence on energy supply (shale boom), as well as the expansion of the conflict zone around the perimeter of the Kingdom, which inevitably leads to the spread of war to Saudi Arabia, as well as the course towards rapprochement with Iran are unacceptable. An objective basis has emerged for a rift in relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States. Washington is creating two new footholds in the region - the Kurdish state and Iran. Tehran has already lost its former revolutionary fervor. Part of the Iranian elite and middle class are ready for mutually beneficial cooperation with the West, which has already led to large contracts with Western companies. Saudi Arabia has lost the status of "beloved wife."
All this has led to the emergence of enormous problems for Saudi Arabia, which has lost the power of the "roof" of the United States and is facing a threat from the strengthening of its position in the region of Iran, as well as the unrecognized "Caliphate". At the same time, Riyadh will be involved in the wars in Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Hushits and jihadists may well begin fighting in the territory of Saudi Arabia itself. The fall in the price of black gold has dealt a blow to the mono-economy of Saudi Arabia.
Not surprisingly, the sheikhs became nervous and took a number of steps to strengthen their position. So, the Saudis pulled Egypt out of the pit, providing it with financial resources and supporting the military elite. "Muslim Brotherhood" driven underground. As a result, Egypt has become a kind of power tool in the hands of Riyadh. Egypt was provided with resources to purchase a number of modern weapons, including in Russia. True, the underlying socio-economic problems, as well as the long-term water problem and demographic problems have not been resolved and this is only a delay. Egypt will still face these problems and its collapse is quite possible.
Then Riyadh began to flirt with Moscow. There were rumors about possible financial investments in the Russian Federation, the signing of large-scale military contracts. The Saudis have unleashed the "oil war", trying to undermine the capabilities of competitors and seize their market share, including American shale companies. However, the tool that the kingdom used for the purpose of destroying competitors over the past three years — a simple increase in oil production — turned out to be not as effective as planned. Although American shalers began to pour in, Saudi Arabia itself was in a difficult position. The budget has formed a hole and foreign exchange reserves are rapidly depleted.
Attempts to diversify the economy continue. Riyadh has announced the creation of the world's largest national wealth fund in 2 with over a trillion dollars. Future cancellation of the Saudi rial peg to the US dollar has also been announced. This will allow KSA to arrange a new wave of dumping in world markets - to strike at US competitors and shalers. True, this measure may lead to a large-scale capital outflow and a sharp rise in inflation in Saudi Arabia.
In addition, Saudi Arabia hastily put together its own power unit. In 2015, Riyadh formed its own anti-terrorist coalition from 34 Islamic countries. Now the Saudis are planning to create another military organization, but in the image and pattern of NATO. Officially, the "Muslim NATO" must fight with world terrorism (under this pretext almost any wars now begin). In reality, Riyadh wants to be able to fight the main enemy - Iran. It is possible that the “Muslim NATO” will be created on the basis of the already existing anti-terrorist coalition of Islamic states. The leading military powers in this coalition are Pakistan and Egypt.
Tehran and Riyadh are already fighting, but the struggle is still on foreign territory - Iraq, Syria and Yemen. For example, in Yemen, the Arab coalition, created and headed by the Saudis, has been waging a war against the Hussites supported by Tehran for a year. In Syria, Tehran supports Damascus, and Riyadh supports gangs of various kinds, fighting against the legitimate government. Moreover, if the Iranians did not support Damascus economically, as well as direct military force, the regime of Bashar al-Assad would have fallen.
Thus, it is obvious that Saudi Arabia (like Turkey) has become a victim of its own policies in the region. The Saudis helped the US to create confusion in the Middle East, but now they themselves are dragging themselves into a funnel of chaos.
