WT on the oil war: Russians lost, and Riyadh “wiped his feet” about Moscow


Coverage of the Russian-Saudi oil war proves that the media readily swallows the bait of “Putin’s propaganda and misinformation,” writes former CIA operative Sam Faddis in The Washington Times in his article.


These "sources" claim that the evil Saudis, led by Crown Prince Mohammed Ibn Salman, decided to bend the world's oil supplies and destroy the US shale. This is actually what happened. When in March 2020, Riyadh saw COVID-19 stop the economy planet, they suggested partners to seriously reduce production. But the Russians refused, despite previous OPEC + agreements. Moreover, they announced an increase in production, clearly intending to take away market share from others.

Moscow started a price war and miscalculated miserably. Riyadh responded with a “reciprocity”, increasing oil production and supply to the market, although prices around the world plummeted at that time. The Saudis did not succumb to the “Putin provocation” and Russia suffered serious losses.

Cries of indignation were heard from Moscow. After that, the Russians resorted to propaganda, which they do well. As a result, Russia was allegedly a victim of the vile plot of the Saudis, striving for world energy domination, and the Kremlin did not make any miscalculations.

The Russians groan in pain, they lost this war. For us and our allies, the situation is positive. Experiencing monetary problems, Russia will not be able to deal with Syria and develop new types of weapons. The next arms race will be fatal for her, they are confident in the publication.

Now the Russians have made concessions to the Saudis, trying to minimize their losses, but damage has already been done to the Russian economy. Before us was a very short and very cruel economic war, which the Russians unleashed, making one of the greatest strategic miscalculations in history. The Russians lost, and our allies from Riyadh "wiped their feet" about Moscow, writes The Washington Times.

The US oil industry is still strong. We are non-volatile, we are filling our strategic reserves with cheap oil and are beginning to push Russian oil exports.

      Inadequacy in the absolute. Inadequate title, inadequate article based on inadequate cries of an inadequate former CIA officer. Surely because of the former, as inadequate. The facts speak differently. The United States, Canada and other participants in neopec +, according to experts, reduced oil production by 3 million barrels per day, the Saudis reduce their production by a million barrels per day over the established limit, due to the lack of demand for it, Russia increased sales of its brand oil Urals, due to high demand and rising prices for it. We look further at what will happen to world oil production. In June, prices may fall again, as at the next meeting of OPEC + transaction participants, the issue of mitigating quotas restricting production will be considered.
      Something like that.

    Recently I read an article that coronavirus affects the brain. And here is the proof of this article.

    I'm trying to turn my brain out and look at this question from the point of view of the "other" side.
    And all the same, I can’t realize the moment in which place and who “wiped his feet”.

          Comrade. I speak Russian, I live in Russia, and am fully aware of modern memes. But the moderators correct my texts, and it’s clear from the edit that they know the Russian language, but live very far away, because they don’t know how the meme “Rashkakonets” differs from “Russia”.

    If for the prince the inflow of currency = 100% of oil exports, for us it is only 25%. If the prince does not have mechanical engineering such as in Russia, agriculture, the same as in Russia, then his attitude to the dollar is completely different.

    The Washington Times is a crappy liberal conservative church newspaper for the proletarians. It was founded in 1982. It then had a clearly defined anti-communist orientation, which fully corresponded to the then Reagan policy. The purpose of this newspaper was far from politics. I just used the trend to earn money for the church. What he does to this day. The yellow press, in short. It is not clear why the author is looking for all sorts of rubbish so far. The German “Bild” will provide him with no less than black rubbish, and you don’t have to go far.
    The article is really worthless.

    Naive article. There are no numbers: volumes, shares, prices, etc. These CIAshniks turn out to be such stupid illiterate people. Or just an infantile journalist decided to ban free then.

    About eight years ago, at the request of the Department of Culture of the Komi-Permyatsky okrug for raising the tourist flow, I engaged in myth-making - I came up with the myth of Hell Lake. The myth was liked not only by the customer, but also by his partners from Syktyvkar; after a small alteration, my creation was published two more times in regional magazines and once in the federal one, while authorship was preserved. Three years ago, in the monograph of one respected folklorist, I stumble upon me a myth invented by the author of the monograph as a local legend .... It turns out that three publications at different media levels with cross-references are enough for people to believe in the truth of the information and even enough in order for fiction to become the basis for serious scientific research.
    What do you want from modern electronic media, where information is not only copied but constantly mutated, and thanks to automatic translators, it is distorted beyond recognition, where the hangover nonsense of yellow writers becomes the basis for authoritative publishers and groups of couch experts turn out to be "reputable analytical agencies"? What do you want from this crazy information world?

    I am very glad that such articles arise in the minds of the enlightened West. We have heard more than once about a poor gas station, a torn economy, now about the great victory of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the oil war, and missiles do not fly in Russia. All cartoons. By the way, I forgot - everyone died out of the coronavirus in Russia, so pull up your pants and jump for joy, and don’t forget to shout "Muscovite to the fart."

    In fact, laughing at sick people is ugly. But the former CIA officer (obviously a partner of the notorious Gordon) has survived his mind if he really writes fake. According to official information, the opposite is true !! And the Americans paw along with the Saudis. Who in the subject knows. And "secrets and secrets" like Gordon can already make me laugh! The law is not written to fools!
