The American media called Russia "scavenger in the Middle East"


Russia has intensified in the Middle East, taking advantage of the fact that the United States, as one of the main players in the region, is experiencing difficulties in connection with the coronavirus pandemic and is reducing its military presence there. The Washington Post experts call the Russian Federation a “scavenger,” because, in their opinion, the Kremlin is not so much promoting its “great strategy” as collecting what remains after the United States.


Last Thursday, at a briefing at the State Department, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for the Middle East Henry Wooster spoke about the expansion of Russia's influence in the region:

Official Moscow widely uses disinformation, troops and intermediaries to spread its policy all over the Mediterranean.

Moreover, according to The Washington Post, the Russian authorities use a mercenary army, known as the "Wagner PMC", and act very opportunistically. Moscow has several important military bases on the Mediterranean Sea and is unlikely to want to leave them. At the same time, the US partially leaves Iraq and Saudi Arabia, and the question is when the US military will leave the north-eastern part of Syria.

    You might think that Russia is stealing Syrian oil, and is feeding terrorists with a half-digested burp, and, of course, Russia has plundered Iraq and Libya, the real scavengers are the under-hegemon and its Middle Eastern jackal Israel.

        We all wear Chinese jeans (Americans climbed trees in Europe when the Chinese already made fabrics). I never went to McDonald's (I like normal food), Pepsi-Cola, etc. I never take it in my mouth (how can I drink this chemistry. I love "Swallow"). "Star Wars" - complete garbage (the more Oscars, the dumber the film).

        As for retirement, I can say that in America neighboring grannies also do not care about Syria, unlike ours, they don’t even know where it is. But their pension is such that they are not discussed in decent places. Let Americans better keep their opinions to themselves. So, theft and the purchase of technology is a normal occurrence between countries. Well, and about jeans, for example, he wore Indian, it was painfully hard to bear. And the Americans in those days by hook or by crook tried to buy our school uniform.

        You, comrade observer, for what purpose are you observing? Propaganda of charms of the USA? As my good friend used to say: "Flies separately, and sweets separately." There is something good in America, but the politics of power have long been known. And in the prophecy from the Apocalypse it is seen (Rev. chap. 13) that there is a beast with lamb horns that reveals the essence of American democracy. And a lot of the Amers themselves. politicians who admit that since 1953 active work has been carried out on coup programs around the world. Now Venezuela is next in line.

        Well, why they take it, good products are obtained from it. For example, it is very difficult to obtain fuel oil, diesel fuel from US oil. I don’t remember about kerosene, because the oil is light. We have a hard one, from it you can get a lot more good. Therefore, the same Americans are forced to buy Canadian and Venezuelan oil. And yes, we ourselves consume almost 56 percent of our oil.

    The USSR was in Syria long before the advent of the United States with its barmales. How to dignify the one who picks up the remains of the same ATS, promising not to do this before? And the remains of the USSR (Georgia, Ukraine)? If the USA is a corpse (otherwise, why does the word scavenger appear), then leave silently.
    But how can one not savor the overseas insults of our country by anonymous "experts", how can one not help the Washington Post in spreading its lies.

    Look who's Talking. laughing Some since 1991 have been feeding on carrion and nothing, it didn’t stand across the throat, they picked up everything where the hands of the rakers reached. Even the coat of arms is suitable. yes

    Among the Indians of the Great Plains, the dead were left in the open, so that the eagle and other scavengers absorbed a particle of the flesh of these people and contributed to their transformation
