Washington Wants Coalition of Sunni Régimes to Fight Iran

The Saudis can’t even defeat the poorly-equipped Houthis in Yemen… good luck fighting a well-trained well-armed Moscow-backed military. We know it’s a badly abused cliché, but we really did laugh out loud after reading that Washington is “working to create a military alliance of Sunni Arab nations” to “counter” Iran. Close your eyes and imagine NATO. Are you seeing visions of an incompetent useless dinosaur that can’t tell the difference between a wedding party and a terrorist pow-wow? Now, clear your mind and imagine a NATO-like coalition with Egypt, Jordan, the KSA, and the UAE as members. Imagine that this coalition of medieval failures had one mission and one mission only… to provoke a war with Iran.

Typical. Washington finally realised that Americans have zero interest in starting a war with Iran, despite years of tireless propaganda portraying Tehran as an existential threat to humanity… or Israel, but what’s the difference, right? They’ve tried everything… even lobbing accusations that one can easily debunk with a simple Google search. Hey, wait a minute… maybe, our medieval Sunni allies would fight Iran for us? That’d be swell. Isn’t that what friends are for? This is true desperation seeping out of Washington’s adult diapers.

Iran isn’t Syria. It doesn’t have to worry about appeasing 1,000 different ethnic and religious groups. It’s a proud country with a long history of fighting off foreign parasites. A Sunni war against Iran would’ve likely been a disaster even ten years ago. Today? It’d be suicidal. Russia is Tehran’s dependable political and military ally, and the idea that Washington would somehow drive a wedge between Moscow and Tehran is ludicrous. Russia would do everything it could to help Iran fight off Sunni fanatics, for the same reason it intervened in Syria… if Washington’s “moderates” were to overrun the Middle East, Russia would be next.

Forget the fact that Iran already deploys Russian-made S-300 SAMs, or that Russia and Iran coördinated a miraculous military campaign to turn the tables in Syria in less than a year… an experience that’d be invaluable if there were a Sunni-led war against Iran. Just for a moment, consider that Russia has gone so far as to ask Washington to acknowledge Hizbullah as a crucial part of anti-ISIS efforts in Syria. Hizbullah! The very name sends shivers up the crooked spines of every Israel First blowhard with an American passport.

People worry that Moscow would abandon Tehran? For Russia, Iran is a holy grail of business opportunities and security coöperation. There’s one takeaway from Syria… Washington loves to stir up trouble in countries that can’t defend themselves. However, when a formidable force such as Russia steps into the ring, the Americans run for the hills (crying foul, of course). Even with full support from Washington and Israel (Israel would stay in the shadows, to keep up appearances), the KSA, Qatar, and the UAE would get a Russian-backed Persian beating that they’d never forget. The icing on the cake would be that this “anti-Iran” bloc includes some of the most autocratic states on earth… anti-women, anti-democratic, anti-everything… it’d be a true joy to watch Washington claim that the KSA and Qatar were fighting Iran to protect democracy in the Middle East.

Of course, we’re probably getting ahead of ourselves. Following NATO’s model, this coalition of medieval head-choppers would first surround Iran with defensive military bases. Then, the provocations and (more) sanctions would begin. It won’t work. Iran isn’t Iraq. It isn’t Libya. It isn’t Syria. It already has the full backing of Russia. If Washington were smart, it’d take note.

24 February 2015. USA Uses Proxies to Extend Aid to Uniate Murderers

00 wounded child. novorossiya. 08.02.15

THIS is what John McCain and Chilly Hilly want… to destroy the Russian people in Novorossiya. They’re using the UK and the UAE to support the Uniate/schismatical murderers. What does that tell us about well-known American Orthodox in the political, intelligence, and media apparats? I call it treason to Holy Rus, its people, the Holy Church, and all Orthodox believers… and I’m NOT alone.

______________________________

Read this and this. In a desperate last-ditch attempt to keep their insolvent sinking client-state afloat, neocon Republicans and interventionist Democrats are using proxies to extend aid to Poroshenko. Firstly, the UAE produces NO arms… what’s their ultimate source? Why, the USA and its poodle puppet-state in the UK! No one need add anything. Iran scares the shit of the UAE (that’s why it’s an American toady-ally). If it wasn’t for the USA, it’d be an Iranian client, if not under direct rule from Tehran, and the ruling junta in the UAE would be history. If UK troops go to the Ukraine, sooner or later, one will die in battle. Here’s something more sinister… the CIA could kill one as a provocation. Langley’s not above that. That’s been its stock-in-trade since the Greek Civil War (remember how they toppled Ecumenical Patriarch Maximos Vaportzis and replaced him with a pro-American lickspittle? I need say no more…).

I have no use for John McCain, Ted Cruz, Chilly Hilly, her sock-puppet John Kerry, and all the rest of the warmonger gang. They’re playing with thermonuclear Ragnarök and they giggle like demented toddlers. The Anglosphere is the enemy of everything right and decent… especially, the loudmouthed Sectarians (and the Catholics and Orthodox seduced by them). God do watch over us all. The lights will go out if the Anglo American Establishment has its way (after all, it supports the Uniate murderers and schismatical killers)…

An estimated 1.6 million people turned up to watch more than 10,000 aerial fireworks and 25,000 shooting comets over Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Over a billion people tuned in throughout the globe to watch Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations, as the city takes pride in being one of the first major cities in the world to welcome each New Year.

******

In Hong Kong, around 300,000 people crowded the city’s streets to watch fireworks and to see artificial snow effects that lit up the skies over Victoria Harbour in an eight-minute show.

******

Despite terrible news of a stampede in Shanghai, hundreds of million across China tuned in to watch a stunning light show in Beijing, where a stunning light show happened at the Badaling Great Wall.

Germans got a dose of wisdom from Bundeskanzerlin Angela Merkel, but as in the most of the world, the cheerful celebrations turned into a drinking fest.

******

Even Novorossiya paused hostilities to welcome the New Year, for many, it signified a new start. Illuminating shells lit up the sky above Donetsk Airport, instead of the High Explosive shells that became all-too-familiar for the residents there.

******

A few hours later, hundreds of thousands of people witnessed the best London has to offer over the River Thames as the fireworks display exploded to the midnight bongs of Big Ben.

******

Rio de Janeiro’s main Copacabana beach is the venue for the country’s biggest New Year party, as it’s practically midsummer at the moment, which is why many partygoers come to Brazil to kick-start their 2015.

From Sydney to Rio de Janeiro, millions of people kicked off their New Year 2015 celebrations under the night skies brightly lit with firework displays. Full of joy and hopes, people wished each other the best of luck in 2015. The party continues… stay tuned…

20 November 2012. RIA-Novosti Infographics. Leading Oil-Exporting Countries in Africa and the Middle East

______________________________

On 14 November, Israel opened large-scale military operations against militants in the Gaza Strip. The subsequent worsening of the situation led to a rise in world oil prices. Which countries in the Middle East are the largest players in the market for “black gold?” In order to stabilise the price of oil, in 1960, major oil-exporting countries established an international intergovernmental organisation, OPEC (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries). It has 12 members:

The purpose of OPEC is to coordinate and develop a common policy on oil production among its member-countries, maintaining stable oil prices, to ensure a stable supply of oil to consumers, and to control investment in the oil sector. The member-countries control about two-thirds of the world’s oil reserves. They control 40 percent of global oil production, which accounts for half of the world’s exports of the product.
