Russia at the gates of the Persian Gulf: Biden loses, Putin gains


The Bolshevik leaders a hundred years ago knew exactly what they wanted from their state, which was formed after the collapse of the Russian Empire. Boris Yeltsin turned out to be a man who did not know what he wanted from the Russian Federation, which emerged after the collapse of the USSR. However, his successor, Vladimir Putin, is well aware of the goals that the country is facing, writes the online publication Al Bawaba from Jordan.


The geopolitical status of modern Russia could have been lost in the same way as the superpower status of the USSR was lost, but Moscow has proved its power. So it was in the Crimea and Syria, and now it is observed in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Putin today gained access to the gates of the Persian Gulf. The Kremlin is aware of the scale of the strategic gaps left in the region by the West, especially the United States, which has only accumulated problems.

The main foreign policy shortcoming of the USSR was indecision. For example, during the war between Egypt and Israel, Moscow ordered Soviet pilots to maintain complete radio silence so that the Israelis would not find out about their participation in hostilities. Outwardly, it looked like a giant state was afraid of a small country. Therefore, the degradation of the USSR began precisely in the 60s of the twentieth century, and not in the 80s, as is commonly believed.

The USSR gradually lost its prestige and more and more of those who dared to challenge Moscow appeared. Mujahideen in Afghanistan and mass protests in Eastern Europe are natural manifestations.

Putin witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall. True, then he was just a middle-level intelligence officer. Today he is aware of the scale and is ready to fill the gaps left by the West.

Today Moscow does not hesitate to bomb targets in Syria and it does not matter how just the war in which it participates. Unlimited access to the Mediterranean is important for Russia. Russia is using Turkey to destroy NATO from within, and PMC Wagner is already present in a dozen countries in Africa.

Putin waited for the situation in the Persian Gulf to get back to normal. For several decades, the Americans have trampled Iraq in the sand, and after the Arab Spring, chaos began to spread throughout the region. But the Arab countries, especially those from the Persian Gulf region, cannot be blamed for turning their backs on the West. It was the West itself that turned its back on them. They were happy to receive Technology, protection, weapons and everything they needed in exchange for energy raw materials.

The West left the Persian Gulf at the most dangerous moment, when the threat from Iran seriously increased. At the same time, the United States does not stop information the war against Saudi Arabia, one of the leaders in the region.

The visit of the Russian Foreign Minister to the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar in mid-March is a clear indication of Moscow's further progress in this direction. If Turkey uses Qatar as a regional gateway, why can't Russia do the same? Today it is obvious that Biden is losing, and Putin is gaining opportunities in the Persian Gulf, the Jordanian media summed up.

      If the facts do not suit you, you can, of course, draw attention to the publication. But work in the Middle East is in full swing, contacts have really intensified. Here also guests came ... Which is typical not in Washington.



      Something is not heard about the success of the new American administration in the diplomatic field in this direction. request The aging senile just calls names laughing

        These are the guests from Israel who are systematically destroying Iranian objects in Syria. And they will continue. Now Turkey and the KSA have reconciled and will begin to jointly cleanse Yemen of the Iranian presence. Let's see how the Turkish Bayraktars will now work in Yemen. So conclusions will have to be made in half a year. What will burn out there.
        So that's it. and the United States does not even have to strain to harm Iran.
        And the opinion of one publication is a "fact" as well as the fact that there are tens of thousands of "publications" in the world, and each individual has his own opinion. And to snatch yourself a favorable opinion and "fact" is the great art of Russian propaganda.

          And don't say it's barbarism. Are you very worried about Iran?

          Now Turkey and the KSA have reconciled and will begin to jointly cleanse Yemen of the Iranian presence. Let's see how the Turkish Bayraktars will now work in Yemen. So conclusions will have to be made in half a year. What will burn out there.

          Reconciled ... Did they quarrel? Are you a sandbox or what? In half a year, come in, we will discuss how Bayraktars plow the expanses of the Bolshoi Theater. It is not interesting to disassemble your fantasies.

          So that's it. and the United States does not even have to strain to harm Iran.

          Of course not. They don't have brown trousers. Overvoltage will be noticeable to everyone.

          And the opinion of one publication is a "fact" as well as the fact that there are tens of thousands of "publications" in the world, and each individual has his own opinion. And to snatch yourself a favorable opinion and "fact" is the great art of Russian propaganda.

          If you noticed, this is a press conference, without any comments from the publication. What other opinion, what kind of propaganda are we talking about? fool

            I was not writing about the press conference.
            And if on this topic, then nothing has changed. A comrade from Israel told you clearly about Iran. And so one diplomatic water.
            Or have you forgotten how the Israelis are hiding behind your intelligence. the plane bombed Iranian facilities in Damascus. And where was that plane of yours after that ..
            Surprise how Putin can swallow all the nasty things that "Soyuzniki" do to you without an answer !!!

              What has not changed and what did he say? You speak more and more in riddles. "Comrade from Israel" did not say anything about Iran, he simply made it clear that the publication does not suit him.

              Or have you forgotten how the Israelis are hiding behind your intelligence. the plane bombed Iranian facilities in Damascus. And where was that plane of yours after that ..

              We haven't forgotten anything.

    In Syria, where the desert is mainly in the area of ​​hostilities, where the bearded do not have a little air defense, MANPADS are relatively easy to prove the status of a superpower from aircraft. In Afghanistan, we, as a super superpower - the USSR also showed our might, until the Americans gave the air defense in the hands of the spirits. As a result, in 10 years the superpower was blown away and retreated. God forbid someone will come up with the idea of ​​giving the Syrians of all stripes, the Kurds air defense in their hands, what then will be covered by all sorts of publications?
