New American conspiracy against Russia and Iran
Especially for Iran.ru
United States moving to a new strategy toward Russia and Iran. The task - to weaken and then destroy the current state and the political structure of the two countries, as well as subdue the giant oil and gas resources of the Russian Federation and the Islamic Republic of Iran, turning them into an obedient tool of conservation of American dominance, both in Europe and in Asia. But Moscow and Tehran are able to disrupt the new "old" ideas of Washington, as declared by NATO's plans in Wales. After all, NATO - this is the United States.
Measures taken today by the Obama administration with regard to Russia and Iran, largely duplicate items Reagan strategy, adopted in 1982 on a narrow closed meeting top officials of the American administration, which was not even invited to the Vice-President George Bush Sr. (he was not interested in the implementation of this plan by himself as representing the interests of the oil sector, the United States). Together with Saudi Arabia, which has dramatically increased the release of oil to the world market, Washington has brought down the price of Soviet oil, the cost of production of which was equal to its export price. Its significant role in reducing the country has played "the Afghan campaign", but the ridge of a powerful state broke destructive course "perestroika" in the face of Gorbachev - Shevardnadze - Yakovlev. As a result, the Soviet Union, one of the great empires of the twentieth century, after several years of economic crisis and political turmoil has disappeared from the world map.
Top secret meeting of senior leadership of the USA in a narrow range
Will the United States to repeat its success this time? In the first months after the second coming of Vladimir Putin as president in May 2012, it became obvious: to replace the "reset" Washington will develop a new strategy for Russia. And after the failure of the aggressive policy of NATO in Ukraine and in the Middle East, which once again shows the beginning of the decline of the American empire, the ruling group became the United States urgently looking for a new course. Not by chance, as in 1982, this time on the eve of the recent NATO summit in Wales and Minsk meeting of representatives of Ukraine and the New Russia to conclude an armistice again held under the deepest secrecy meeting closed part of the senior American leadership with the participation of heads of intelligence agencies, the Pentagon and foreign policy strategists in the "narrow" line up. Objective - essentially correct course in a dramatic weakening and further disintegration of Russia by its dismemberment, and to take urgent measures to restore its presence in the Middle East. It turned into a "fixed by the idea" for the USA in 2012, as soon as it became clear that Russia has gained strength and made her independent of Washington's positions on a number of issues: Syria, Iran, limiting the activities of pro-Western liberal forces within Russia, and then to the Crimea and the situation in Ukraine. And, from Washington's perspective, already quite beyond the "permitted" - the creation of the summer of this year, alternative international institutions within the BRICS and the SCO. Washington especially frightened the possibility of forming an axis Russia - China - Iran with a possible connection to it in the future and India. It is, believe in the United States, would mean not only the loss of the America's global role, for which she stubbornly clings to, but also the loss of control over the main sources of hydrocarbons from the supply of which depends on future economic prosperity of the West. After all, Moscow and the Persian Gulf - or rather, the Russian Federation, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Qatar - the main suppliers of oil and gas to Europe and Asian markets. That is, the further development and strengthening of the power of China and India, too, depends on what is happening in Russia and the Persian Gulf.
After losing to Ukraine, Washington desperately searching for alternative directions strike against Russia. Given that the declared measures to strengthen NATO presence in Eastern Europe on the Russian western borders has, to put it mildly, ridiculous (5,000 soldiers of rapid reaction forces in Poland, Romania and the Baltic states), the United States decided to deploy an offensive from the south, where it is still bogged down in 2013 due to the inability of the West to topple the regime of Bashar al-Assad, to be protected and which firmly stood together Russia and Iran. Thus, the onset of the US accents, and thus NATO, as the North Atlantic Alliance and America - it's the same thing, again transferred to the Middle East, this time with a focus on Iran and Iraq. After all, Iran's output after removing it sanctions and Iraq after the stabilization of the situation there as a major Middle Eastern oil and gas suppliers to the world market by the years 2018-2020 (estimated to the two countries will be able to export only the daily oil production to 20 million. Barrels per day) significantly reduce the role of the pro-Western Saudi Arabia, export opportunities for oil which does not exceed 10-11 million. barrels per day. And then there's growing regional role of Iran in political terms, the preservation of Tehran independent from the West course, the development of a peaceful nuclear program of Iran and its desire to enter the BRICS and the SCO.
The current American events - complete destabilization of Ukraine, economic sanctions, anti-pipeline construction - almost literally repeated paragraphs strategy Reagan to destroy the USSR, but in an updated version. But they were not enough as due to the inability of Kiev military means to overcome the resistance of New Russia, the unwillingness of many EU member states fully "go" under Washington not to lose the Russian market, and not be left without Russian gas, and because of the fact that without Iran, Iraq and Syria is impossible to create a viable alternative to the project "South Stream". A pro-US opportunities dwarf the emirate of Qatar LNG is not enough even for a considerable decrease in the price of Russian gas to the EU. Another thing - the eruption of Iranian gas to Europe with its largest field "South Pars" and start gas exports from Iraq, which is scheduled for 2016.
Only now with Iran and Iraq the United States themselves have painted themselves into a dead end, imposing economic and financial sanctions on Iran because of its nuclear program and destroying the foundations of the Iraqi state after the occupation of that country in 2003. But here still created with the United States, NATO, Turkey and Arabia Wahhabi regimes monster face LIH (now called simply the IG - Islamic State) for the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, who in June this year, he moved to Iraq and nearly captured Baghdad, at the same time proclaiming the creation of an Islamic caliphate. Just a quick and effective assistance of Iran and Russia have saved mode then regime of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki from total collapse. And now on the meeting held recently in Washington sverhzakrytom meeting decided - to use Middle Eastern Islamists to incite extremist and separatist sentiment in the Northern Caucasus with possible extrusion there IG militants from Iraq and Syria, especially terrorists "Russian origin", as well as instability in other Russian Muslim regions (the Volga region, metropolitan areas) to create a new force within the overall "fifth column" in Russia, and at the same time in parallel to take all steps for the separation of Iran from Russia and weaken Baghdad's cooperation with Russia, including in the energy sector (oil projects with the participation of Gazprom Neft and Lukoil).
Bids of Washington
The main rate is now Iran, more precisely, the rapid degeneration of the ruling class of the Iranian national Islamist in pro-Western liberal. You bet on the lead group president Hassan Rouhani and its supporting polusvetskih politicians and businessmen from the religious leaders of the country, headed by spiritual leader Ali Khamenei, as well as from the command of the IRGC. Thus, the White House is fixed rejection of the idea of overthrowing the current Iranian regime in its expansion plan from the inside by a pro-Western "modification" of the political, economic and cultural elite of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the promotion of domestic opposition to weaken the power of the current leadership, inciting ethnic tensions between the Persians, on the one hand, Azerbaijanis Kurds, Bellugi, etc. - On the other. In this case, the United States, using NATO as some kind of international cover and already decided to implement it to oust Iran from Iraq, the transformation of the current Iraqi authorities after the departure of Nuri al-Maliki as prime minister from the point of focus on Iran and the development of relations with the Russian Federation on the pro-Western course and normalization of relations with Saudi Arabia and the Sunni monarchies of the GCC.
All this, according to the Washington strategists, will allow along with armed agents under the guise of fighting terrorism in the face of the IG significantly strengthen the American military presence, and some of their allies in the British, Australians, Poles, etc. in Iraq. And later, not only with the Air, but the land component for the subsequent deployment of a military operation against Syria on its territory, but only from the east, and again under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
Washington is ready to begin the bombing of the CAP in the areas where the IG units, as well as to resume military aid polusvetskoy opposition in the face of the Syrian Free Army (SSA). In said closed meeting in Washington finally came to the conclusion - to disrupt the gasket "South Stream" with the help of Iran can not, through the establishment of Iran LNG capacity to western financial investments (it is expensive and takes a lot of time), and by the construction of the main gas pipeline from Iran to injection into it and Qatari gas from the South Pars field in common - North Field, then adding to it the Iraqi gas and then - through Syria to the Mediterranean coast and from there to the ATS Southern Europe, or else from Syria to Turkey and the Balkans.
This project - quickly implemented and not too expensive. But as long as there is one "but" - the need to first convert the regimes in Iran, Iraq and Syria to the pro-American, and without the use of force, sabotage, subversive activities, involvement of the financial resources of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, this is impossible. Therefore, we must prepare for new wars and "revolutions" in the Middle East, but not islamistsko- "colored", and pro-Western liberal. Both Iran here - the main target. Without changing the inside or outside of the regime in Tehran, the United States did not implement this new strategic plan, built on the basis of the old ideas of the Reagan years. That is nothing new.
US plans are the same
The strategy of Washington at that time was laid to attack the weaknesses of the Soviet political and economic system. Measures of economic and financial order were intended to dramatically reduce the inflow of foreign currency in the budget of the USSR. The reduction in revenue budget limited the domestic and foreign policy of the Soviet Union. The point of this part of the plan was the following:
1. To prevent the construction of a second gas pipeline from Siberia to Western Europe. (Start the first line of the pipeline was detained efforts in Washington to 2.5 years). Each branch gave 12-15 billion dollars in revenue a year. Available on the second branch would double the sale of gas and, consequently, the Soviet foreign exchange earnings. US's European allies have imposed a "ceiling" of 30% of the consumption of Soviet gas; imposed sanctions on five European companies (licensees of American companies and American subsidiaries abroad, the three of them went bankrupt), provides equipment for the Soviet gas transmission system; banned the use of drilling technologies permafrost; Oslo obliged to develop a gas field in the Norwegian Troll, despite the higher cost of goods sold of Norwegian gas to Europe ("surcharge for security"); banned commercial banks lending to the construction of gas pipelines in the USSR.
2. Sharply lower oil prices. The Saudis then behaved very tractable in terms of increased production. Every dollar reduction in the price of a barrel of oil costing Moscow around from five million to one billion dollars. Personally, William Casey, the CIA director, was responsible for negotiations with Saudi Arabia on the issue. He was engaged in that part of the equation figured natural gas. Saudi Arabia, in exchange for its tractability, has acquired the right to purchase to protect against the "Iranian threat" of aircraft systems and guidance radiodetection AWACS.
3. Stop the granting of loans to the Soviet Union and to force it to early payment of interest on loans. Guide commercial banks summoned to the White House and clearly impress: in addition to the extraction of profits is the interests of national security, against which they have no right to go.
4. Prohibit delivery technologies. A ban on the transfer of technology has been implemented through the Coordinating Committee on Export Controls.
5. Subversive and sabotage activities in the allied countries of the USSR. It was decided to organize subversive activities in Poland by the Catholic Church and the trade union "Solidarity" movement, to give them a secret financial, intelligence and political support. It was also decided to extend military support to the Mujahideen in Afghanistan under Reagan Washington has significantly increased the volume of deliveries of arms, added the types of weapons that could inflict maximum damage to the Soviet contingent, particularly MANPADS "Stinger", supplied the information from the satellites, attracted to the promotion of the mujahideen other countries - from China to Sweden. The aim was to spread the Mujahideen through the war to the Soviet Union. A comprehensive, multi-dimensional and an elaborate psychological warfare in order to sow fear and uncertainty among the Soviet leadership.
The Reagan administration's plan was developed and implemented in an atmosphere of secrecy. Knew about it only 12 people. I did not know about the plan even Vice President George Bush: Reagan's closest associates found that the oil interests of his family clan could interfere with the planned reduction in oil prices. One of the most important points of the Reagan strategy was to force the Europeans to follow the plan. According to Washington, Western Europe too profitable trades with the Soviet Union, instead of "taking care of their own security." The Reagan administration demanded from Europeans to abandon the construction of the pipeline, which would create tens of thousands of jobs in Europe in the years of the highest unemployment rates, abandon a guaranteed supply of inexpensive Soviet gas and instead invest heavily in the development of Norwegian fields, and then buy expensive Norwegian gas. So after thirty years the Obama administration has developed a similar plan - now with regard to Russia and Iran. Let's see his match on points.
Economic and financial measures: three rounds of economic sanctions have already been implemented; opposition to the construction of the gas pipeline "South Stream" being the most active; a ban on the supply of equipment for underground mining, drilling the Arctic shelf and shale deposits - similar to the ban on the supply of drilling technologies permafrost; is the maximum pressure on European countries to those at the expense of their own interests, followed by American sanctions; also put pressure on other countries, particularly in Latin America, which are able to substitute for European exports to Russia, after he was hit by retaliatory sanctions. Instead of Norway as a source of gas for Europe elected Iran and Iraq. And now they run against a set of measures 'impact'.
If in 1982, Washington attacked the USSR through Poland and Afghanistan, then in 2013 set made in Europe through Ukraine, and the Middle East - from Syria. Line of attack is much closer to the borders of Russia itself has been going on the attack by military means. And all this we see only in the public space. In fact, the Obama administration's strategy of not less secretive than Reagan's strategy, which became known only years later, after it has produced results.
Of course, the question arises: who today develops and implements a strategy against Russia and Iran? One of them - the current director of the CIA, John Brennan. He was previously head of the residency management in Saudi Arabia and, of course, has all the necessary contacts and tools to work with the Saudis. Accordingly, he knows well and Iran as the main opponent of Riyadh region. His trip to the Ukraine also highlights it as one of the band members present Washington strategists. But there are others. And almost all of them - not the public figures who are constantly flashed on television screens.
The main thing for Russia and Iran - urgently deploy countermeasures against Washington's plans aimed at regime change in both countries. Help governments survive Syria and Iraq. And at the same time to create your own effective energy axis, capable to hold global and regional markets of hydrocarbons in their interests. Moscow and Tehran must understand that the United States and NATO is now run all the levers of ideological and economic impact to divide Russia and Iran, and the "overcome" them individually. Strength - only in unity. And there is no time to think. There is time only for decisive joint action.
