Kedmi explains US concern over possible Russian base in Cuba


2020 has brought the world to the brink of new dramatic changes in all sensitive points of geopolitics. The approach of Russia to the US borders is causing great alarm in Washington, Israeli political scientist and ex-head of the Nativ special service Yakov Kedmi said on the YouTube channel Soloviev Live, making a forecast for 2021.


In 2021, China will become the economic leader of the planet, and Turkey is likely to change its external policies for the better by reducing confrontation with other countries.

If the US does not strike Iran in the next two weeks, then the development of international relations will proceed naturally.

- the expert specified.

According to the political scientist, Russia has shown wisdom and demonstrated the ability to effectively solve various problems, ranging from the development of a vaccine against COVID-19 to carrying out lightning peacekeeping operations. Moscow is gradually beginning to take a more active part in international affairs. The dispatch of Russian servicemen to the CAR indicates that Russia cannot remain indifferent or indifferent to the ongoing processes in the world.

The hysteria that began in the United States because of the likelihood of the resumption of the functioning of the Russian military base in Cuba, if it (hysteria) turns out to be justified, it will have a serious impact on the development of international events in all respects. The last time Russia decided to act in Cuba to counterbalance the American encirclement of its territory with missile bases, it had its results. Then Russia was less powerful. Today this is taking place in an environment where Russia has a strategic military superiority over the United States.

- said Kedmi.

Kedmi stressed that if the Russian Navy acquires not only a base in Sudan, but also in other parts of the planet, it will become an important factor in the oceans. Thus, it will be possible to reduce the influence of the United States in the world.

    Kedmi explains US concern over possible Russian base in Cuba

    The creation today (tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, etc.) of a Russian military base in Cuba ... - would be the greatest and colossal-costly mistake for Russia ... - Now this base will not give Russia anything, except to put impoverished Cuba on the Russian budget. ...

      The most important question is, do Cubans know about this kotovasia around their territory, or did you single-handedly decide everything for them "yesterday"? The local "couch guard" has already deployed 100/500 missile divisions on the territory of this independent state, not at all worrying about getting their permission for this. We have already thrown Cuba once, but as Kozma Prutkov said - "Who lied once, who will believe you?"
      I served in the Soviet army and considered the armies of Cuba, the GDR and Vietnam to be the most reliable allies at that time. The rest of the armies of the Warsaw Pact countries and the allied countries of the so-called. social orientation - by parasites and parasites, stuck to the budget of the USSR.

        - There was also Mongolia, devoted to the USSR until the last arat-breeder ... - Perhaps the most devoted and loyal to the USSR ... - But ... this is not the point ...
        - More than 30 years have passed since then ... - And everything has changed so much that no one would have believed in such a thing before ...
        - The GDR has long been a part of the almost enemy FRG;
        - All Vietnam is ready to kiss the Americans right in the gums ... - Vietnamese youth today are very, very cool towards Russia (and this is putting it mildly) ... All these young people (the overwhelming majority) condemn Russia for the fact that it (the USSR ) once provided active assistance to the "Viet Cong" ... -This youngster today says that, they say, if it were not for the Russians with "their help"; then they would all speak English fluently today and their affairs would be much more successful;
        - And in Cuba, during this period (more than 30 years), the third generation of absolute poor idlers has simply grown up; who stagger the streets of neglected cities, sleep until lunchtime ... - few of them work somewhere ... - Poverty and wretchedness are just terrible ... - There is no trace of the former Cuba (Soviet times) ...
        - So to create military bases ... - that in Vietnam (where the "good Vietnamese" just rip seven skins off Russia for this ... - just space costs) ... - What in Cuba ... - where everything will cost for Russia, all at the same astronomical prices + also financial support from the Cuban population and very serious protection of the Russian base from local antisocial elements and saboteurs of all kinds ... - Compared to these bases (if they are created) ... - our base is Khmeimim in Syria will look like just a "paradise" ...

    Jacob Kedmi is pleasant to listen to, comments very sweetly compared to other Western political scientists and Western media. The main leitmotif is that Russia must act in the most tough manner.
    Why the soft answer has its drawbacks is understandable. But about the fact that if you always go only to the maximum aggravation and what disadvantages and force majeure this may have, Yakov Kedmi usually does not reveal the topic, as well as the fact that, in addition to the most extreme two options, there are a huge number of intermediate ones.

    Figuratively speaking, a type of advisor who argues that you have only two options:
    - Either not buying a Maserati and not going to work, it's bad because a loser and a loser.
    - Or buy a Maserati and travel to work like a respected person.

    The "advisor" is modestly silent about the fact that a loan for a car cannot be repaid, as well as about the fact that you can ride the subway, taxi and personal car easier.

    But listening to Yakov is sweet ...

      Exactly good It is useful to listen, but you need to have your own head on your shoulders, because, as a rule, people themselves are not capable of translating their advice into reality.

    A very sweet provocateur.
    What immediately comes to mind is that he rubbed in that the Americans are weak and cannot do anything in Syria.
    And they once - and 2 weeks after the sweet speeches hit the PMC Wagner ...

    With the largest economy in the world and a navy, the PRC planned to dig the Nicaraguan and Malacca canals, but after weighing all the pros and cons, it limited itself to the islands in the South China Sea. Perhaps someday it will come back to this, but definitely not tomorrow. First, we need to resolve the issue with Taiwan and the claimants to the islands.
    The Russian Federation is much inferior to the PRC in its commercial and military fleets, economic potential, and having created a missile base, it will be necessary to maintain an entire state and raise the standard of living of Cubans so as not to mow down on the United States, and all this is oh, how expensive and therefore unlikely.
    In addition, Cuba is far away and the approaches to it are under the full and unconditional control of the United States and NATO, which makes it possible to establish a naval blockade as in the times of N.S. Khrushchev. If the Russian Federation decides to break through it, this is a war and, possibly, with the use of nuclear weapons with all the ensuing consequences.
    Alternatively, sell short- and medium-range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads for a pittance to Cuba, and to cover them with missile defense systems or deploy a Russian military base.

      And besides, Tribaltika, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, etc. close to Russia, and the approaches to it are under the complete and unconditional control of the United States and NATO.
      And now what i can do? Huddle up again and raise your hands up? Or is it still to place a naval base in Cuba so that Russian submarines can be based there? And then, instead of US control, Cuba will also have control of Russian nuclear submarines. And what are they, on boarding merchant ships?

        And what do I do?

        Barter - short- and medium-range missiles in exchange for something, and not only Cuba, but Venezuela and all other states of southern and central America.
        This will free storage sites from morally and physically obsolete, but still formidable weapons, not only save the budget, but perhaps even replenish it by supplying spare parts and related equipment, not to mention how much it “annoys” the United States. Then a military base is not required.
  7. And in Cuba there will be a base with atomic missiles, and in Venezuela, and there and with the brothers Ortega we will shake off a TAAAKU base - amers will be thrown into a cold sweat!
