"Putin Is The New Master Of The Middle East"

Tyler Durden's picture

With the Trump administration lately focused mostly on domestic policy - even as Mueller's ongoing Russian probe continues to hang over Trump's head - US power and influence in the Middle East has found itself in retreat, a continuation of unsuccessful and/or failed policies implemented by the Obama administration, resulting in a power vacuum that has to be filled, and one country has emerged willing to take America's spot.

As Bloomberg writes today, "the Israelis and Turks, the Egyptians and Jordanians - they’re all beating a path to the Kremlin in the hope that Vladimir Putin, the new master of the Middle East, can secure their interests and fix their problems."

And now, none other than Saudi Arabia is the latest to make friendly overtures toward the Kremlin, when Saudi King Salman visits Moscow on Wednesday, the first monarch of the oil-rich kingdom to do so. At the top of his agenda will be reining in Iran, a close Russian ally seen as a deadly foe by most Gulf Arab states.

As Bloomberg concedes, until very recently, Washington stood alone as the go-to destination for such leaders. Now, however, "American power in the region is perceptibly in retreat" a testament to the success of Russia’s military intervention in Syria, which has not only succeeded in squashing the local Islamic State threat, but kept President Bashar al-Assad in power after years of U.S. insistence that he must go.

“It changed the reality, the balance of power on the ground,” said Dennis Ross, America’s former chief Mideast peace negotiator who advised several presidents from George H. W. Bush to Barack Obama. “Putin has succeeded in making Russia a factor in the Middle East. That’s why you see a constant stream of Middle Eastern visitors going to Moscow.”

There's also money: as RT writes, a joint Russian-Saudi fund to invest in the energy sector will be announced during the forthcoming visit of the Saudi King to Moscow, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak told the Al Arabiya TV Channel. According to Novak, the basic agreement to establish the $1 billion fund has already been reached.

Novak said Russia is "focused on developing cooperation with Saudi Arabia not only within the OPEC framework but also outside the cartel,” including the energy sector, the electric power sector, and renewable energy resources. Additionally, Moscow and Riyadh are expected to announce a new investment platform and manufacturing projects. Last week, the Director-General of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev praised significant results in investment cooperation between the RDIF and Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF).

In 2015 the two sovereign funds agreed to a partnership, establishing a joint $10 billion platform and inking several investment deals. RDIF has also signed a cooperation agreement with the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), to jointly search for investment projects in Russia. SAGIA is supposed to bring Russian companies to the Arabian market.

Still, Putin's success will bring problems, because as conflicting demands pile up, it won't be easy to send all the visitors home satisfied. “The more you try to adopt a position of dealing with all sides, the more you find that it’s hard to play that game,’’ Ross said.

To be sure, Moscow was a major power in the Middle East during the Cold War, arming Arab states against Israel, however as communism collapsed in the late 1980s, so did Russia's influence. When the US invaded Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein, Russia was a bystander, unable to do more than protest. However, the tables began to turn in 2013, when the U.S. under Obama decided not to attack Assad. Two years later, Putin sent troops and planes to defend him.

For the most part, America’s local allies were firmly in the Assad-must-go camp. They were disillusioned when U.S. military might wasn’t deployed to force him out.

 

Russia’s clout in the region has grown “because Obama allowed it to,’’ said Khaled Batarfi, a professor at Alfaisal University’s branch in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. “Unfortunately he withdrew to a great extent from the Middle East.’’

That view is widespread. It was bluntly expressed last month by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who spent years urging American action against Assad. Talks with the U.S. “couldn’t get any results,’’ he said.

And, as discussed here previously, Turkey has now alligned with Russia and Iran in a plan to de-escalate the conflict. It’s “achieving a result,’’ Erdogan said.

Two years ago, tensions between Putin and Erdogan had threatened to boil over, after the Turkish military shot down a Russian jet on the Syrian border. Last Friday, the Russian president flew to Ankara for dinner with his Turkish counterpart and “friend,’’ who’s agreed to buy Russian S-400 air defense missile systems, riling fellow NATO members.

Meanwhile, in the most bizarre reversal, the Saudis, who had financed rebels fighting against Assad as well as radical, Al Qaeda splinter groups and according to Hillary Clinton, the Islamic State itself, are cooperating with Russia in coaxing the opposition to unite for peace talks – which will likely cement the Syrian leader in power, even as Saudi Arabia has splintered from its long-time ally Qatar.

America’s Middle East allies mostly welcomed the change of U.S. president, and Donald Trump’s tough talk about challenging Iran. So far, though, he’s stuck close to his predecessor’s policy in Syria, concentrating on fighting Islamic State not Assad.

 

So, as the goal of regime-change in Syria recedes, priorities have shifted. The Saudis and other Arab Gulf powers are urging Russia to reduce Iran’s role in Syria, where Hezbollah and other Shiite militias supported by Tehran have provided shock troops for Assad’s offensive.

“Russia is better off not to be on one side of it. That’s the key message," Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, a U.A.E.-based political analyst, told Bloomberg. “Here is the king, representing Arab Gulf countries, representing a lot of geopolitical weight, coming to Russia. And Russia has to take that into consideration.’’

However any expectations the Saudi monarch may have of inserting a wedge between Russia and Iran will soon be dashed: Putin won’t shift his stance on Iran to accommodate Saudi wishes, according to a person close to the Kremlin quoted by Bloomberg. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has visited Russia four times in the past 18 months, has also found it hard to sway the Russian leader.

In August, Netanyahu told Putin that Iran’s growing foothold in Syria is “unacceptable.’’ In September he told CNN that the Iranians are trying to “colonize’’ Syria with the aim of “destroying us and conquering the Middle East."

 

Russia, though, refused his demand for a buffer zone inside Syria that would keep the forces of Iran and Hezbollah at least 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the Israeli border, a person familiar with the matter in Moscow said. Instead, Russia offered a 5-kilometer exclusion zone, the person said.

Relishing its newly-found power broker position, Russia also rejected a U.S. demand to make the Euphrates river a dividing line between Syrian government troops and U.S.-supported forces in eastern Syria. This led to a race to capture territory from retreating Islamic State fighters in a strategic and oil-rich border region, and is currently manifesting itself in the scramble to control Drer Ezzor.

At the same time, Russia has succeeded in keeping open channels of communication to all sides, from Iran to Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian radical Islamist group Hamas to Israel, said Ayham Kamel, Middle East and North Africa director at Eurasia Group.

While Russia didn’t give way on the buffer zone, it has a tacit understanding that permits Israel to carry out airstrikes against Hezbollah in Syria, said Andrey Kortunov, director general of the Russian International Affairs Council, a research group set up by the Kremlin.

 

It’s been mediating, along with Egypt, to end the decade-old inter-Palestinian rift between Fatah in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza. Putin invited rival Libyan factions to Moscow, after a series of peace efforts by other countries came to nothing. Russia has become a leading investor in oil-rich Iraqi Kurdistan, and was one of the few world powers to refrain from condemning its recent vote on independence.

What is most surprising, is that in economic terms, the contest for influence looks dramatically one sided: America’s GDP is 13 times Russia’s. However, that’s not always the decisive factor, said Alexander Zotov, Moscow’s ambassador to Syria from 1989 to 1994. “Sometimes you have two boxers coming out to the ring, one is huge with bulging muscles and the other is smaller but nimble, and has a better technique,’’ he said.

Making matters worse, the nimble fox has managed to, supposedly, sway US elections courtesy of $100,000 in Facebook ads, when both the Clinton and Trump campaign spent hundreds of millions.

While economics are a limiting factor for Russia, Putin has another material advantage over American presidents according to Paul Salem, vice president of the Middle East Institute in Washington. He has no Congress to worry about, and no elections that he risks losing. Putin has been around for almost two decades, a long time in geopolitics, with “very consistent leadership, a consistent message,” Salem said.

“He says what he does, he does what he says.”

Russia’s rise came as U.S. policy makers grew preoccupied with Asia, and the American public tired of Middle East wars – something both Obama and Trump acknowledged.

To be sure, “Washington remains the indispensable power in the region,’’ said Eurasia’s Kamel. But its commitment to traditional alliances is weakening, he said, and that’s encouraged regional leaders to hedge their bets.

As Bloomberg concludes, “The Kremlin is on everyone’s mind."

Humorously stated BobEore. Why are the ZH comment boards so reflexively pro-Putin? It’s funny.

Here are some truths that the Putinities will not like to read :(

1) Russia is a dying country with Death Spiral Demographics.
2) Russia has its warm water ports in Crimea and Syria now. Still has to go through Turkey, a NATO Ally that will remain in the alliance out of pure self-preservation.
3) China’s demographics mean it’ll get old before it gets rich.
4) The US will remain the sole superpower for the rest of our lives.

I hope you are right and Putin is the real deal. But looking back in history, Lenin was paid by the Rothschilds, Hitler was paid by the Rothschilds and many more. What are the chances he is not in their pockets ? They play us, divide and conquer, bread and circuses is all enough to keep ruling on top.

seems to me putin has flipped Turkey, will be the only guartantor of Kurdish freedom and will make peace by making a deal where everyone profits, as opposed to the US way which is to sow chaos on behalf of Israel

Plus what this guy said:

Franks, who chairs of the House International Religious Freedom Caucus and sits on the House Armed Services and Judiciary Committees, issued a statement coinciding with the introduction of his bill, saying, “Baghdad has failed to secure Kurdish rights” and “protect the Kurdish people from members of the Islamic State and other violent forces”:

Thank God for the Kurds – they have delivered countless groups and individuals from the hands of ISIS. Without their armed defense of northern territory, and the protection of over 2 million refugees, the medieval horrors of ISIS could have been much more widespread. During the darkest days of the Iraq War, Kurdistan remained a sanctuary of order in the midst of sectarian chaos.

Airport will open for international flights starting with TURKISH AIRLINES tonight.

Cue anti-kurd propaganda in 3....2....1

Putin only wants 'kirkuk oil via Iraq. Period!

Erbil oil via kurds will stay in Erdogan's hemisphere having Barzani knowing 'Kirkuk' is Iraq's. Period!

Iraq has no problem with this, other than the fact that Barzani for years has been skimming the cream [taxes] due in kind?

Dennis Ross is a fucking scumbag--- a dual citizen- and a Israel puppet via USSA!!! and AIPAC.

As far as the KSA? They can't be trusted---

Turkey was the 'BIG soft Coup' that Vlad made happen, and can't be said enough how important it was to bring Erdogan into the 'OBOR' axis!

[but], the exceptionalism of Vlad is his pragmatism (a true statesman) and doesn't work off of emotions and childish`spontanity.

as far as Vlad having been around for ~ two-decades,... think Merkle and the BIG '16 years" as Empress! Who's bullshitting who?!?

Nothing like a good laugh to relax in the evening, and Bloomberg's unintentional comedy can be hilarious. As I have no compelling reason to visit Bloomberg's site, I'd like to express my gratitude to the Tylers who, at significant risk of personal emesis, peruse such sites in search of comedy gold.

“It changed the reality, the balance of power on the ground,” said Dennis Ross, America’s former chief Mideast peace negotiator who advised several presidents from George H. W. Bush to Barack Obama.

The expertise of this source is empirically demonstrated by the well-established peaceful atmosphere in the Mideast spanning the administrations of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. This guy knows his stuff.

Still, Putin's success will bring problems, because as conflicting demands pile up, it won't be easy to send all the visitors home satisfied. “The more you try to adopt a position of dealing with all sides, the more you find that it’s hard to play that game,’’ Ross said.

Fortunately, Putin is not trying to send all the visitors home satisfied. That would be a fool's errand, as it would require a web of elaborate lies, eventually leading to a loss of trust, reputation, and credibility. I've noticed that the success of Russian diplomacy is based on interacting with peers on an equal level with mutual respect and a genuine interest in trying to understand the viewpoints of other sides. The end result is that they're able to work with others in areas where there is agreement and leave the door open for further discussion in areas where opinions diverge.

When the US invaded Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein, Russia was a bystander, unable to do more than protest. However, the tables began to turn in 2013, when the U.S. under Obama decided not to attack Assad. Two years later, Putin sent troops and planes to defend him.

Oh, Bloomie, the tables began to turn well before that. It is not an insult but a statement of medical fact: memory at Bloomberg is like that of a guppy fish. Putin's speech at the 2007 Munich Security Conference indicates that the tables had already turned. Check it out, if only to watch John McCain and his special partner Joe Lieberman squirming in the front row.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ58Yv6kP44  w/ english subtitles
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4MAsIh3zMA  w/ english voiceover

Confirmation of the tables having been turned arrived on 8 August 2008 when Mikhail Saakashvili, with the tacit approval of Uncle Sam, attacked Russian peacekeepers in South Ossetia. The Russians made Saakashvili eat his tie and, after spanking his army, withdrew. Expressed visually, it looks like this:

http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/colonelcassad/19281164/898099/898099_900.jpg

BTW, I seem to recall that in 2013, after a rare display of vertebral behavior by the UK Parliament who refused to rubber-stamp British participation in a US-led attack on Syria, Obama punted the decision to congress (that was so unfair) and they are the ones who thought such an attack might not be such a good idea.

So, as the goal of regime-change in Syria recedes, priorities have shifted. The Saudis and other Arab Gulf powers are urging Russia to reduce Iran’s role in Syria, where Hezbollah and other Shiite militias supported by Tehran have provided shock troops for Assad’s offensive.

Shock troops? You know, I can't put my finger on it, but somehow I have a hunch that Bloomberg really really wanted to say Stoßtruppen or Sturmtruppen. Just a hunch, mind you...

Making matters worse, the nimble fox has managed to, supposedly, sway US elections courtesy of $100,000 in Facebook ads, when both the Clinton and Trump campaign spent hundreds of millions.

Ah, yes, I wondered how they'd work in the obligatory mantra of US Government-approved fake news. Clearly they are incapable of comprehending the full ramifications were such a statement true. Otherwise they'd realize how completely silly they sound.

While economics are a limiting factor for Russia, Putin has another material advantage over American presidents according to Paul Salem, vice president of the Middle East Institute in Washington. He has no Congress to worry about, and no elections that he risks losing.

Riiiiight. Typical Vichy DC stink tank groupthink. No congress to worry about, just like US presidents have no State Duma and Federation Council of Russia to worry about. As for elections, Putin's risk of losing is probably commensurate with that of other world leaders with an approval rating consistently well above 70 percent.

To be sure, “Washington remains the indispensable power in the region,’’ said Eurasia’s Kamel.

Laughing to tears on that one. Eurasia Group is some sort of comedy troupe, like Second City, right?

As Bloomberg concludes, “The Kremlin is on everyone’s mind."

Well, they certainly got that correct:

@ Shemp 4 Victory

well said my man,

francis scott falseflag's picture

Very well done, S4V

You picked out the same quotes that gave me pause.  I too chuckled when I read that

he advised Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama.  Did he advise Bush on the invasion of Iraq or

suggest to Obama that the impaling of Gaddafi could be videoed on a cell phone?

 

As far as sending visitors home satisfied Bibi Netanyahu didn't look like a happy camper

after he returned from Russia.  And we haven't seen Vicky Nuland much at all.

 

Actually the tables began to turn in 2011 when Obama lied to Medvedev, into a mike he

knew was open, about being more flexible after his reelection.  Nobody bought that, least

of all Putin, who decided on a third term without a second thought after hearing that.  In

2012 Putin won too.  The first thing he did, was to dismiss Russia's Chief of General Staff

and later the Minister of Defense.

 

The civil war in Syria was already on for two years.  Assad wasn't looking good. So the

tables didn't turn in 2013 but 

"In 2010 Sergei Prikhodko, senior adviser to the Russian President, has said that

Russia intends to deliver P-800 to Syria based on the contracts signed in 2007.  

Syria received 2 Bastion missile systems with 36 missiles each (72 in total). 

{Oinks or Yakhont = P-800} .....  


          "In May 2013, Russia continued the contract delivery to the Syrian government supplying

           missiles with an advanced radar to make them more effective to counter any future

           foreign military invasion.  The warehouse containing the Bastion Missile was destroyed

           in an Israeli air strike on Latakia on 5 July 2013, but US intelligence analysts believe that

           some missiles had been removed before the attack."


No one knows how many missiles were destroyed in the Israeli air strike but the Washington/

Tel Aviv propaganda machine decided that some had beenremoved, when they may have not

been there at all.  And the July 5th air strike was the third or fourth Israeli attempt to destroy

them since the beginning of 2013.  The Israeli air force had been tasked b Obama to destroy

the Russian Yakhont cruise missiles , which could be launched by air, land and submarine. 

 So, Shemp, when Obama decided not to attack Damascus it wasn't out of the goodness

of his black heart, it was because Putin reminded him of the Yakhonts and wondered

how many of his warships he was willing to be sunk, just to launch a missile into Damascus

on a lie, on a false flag, about a chemical attack near Damascus on August 29, 2013?

 

And remember who landed at Sheremetyevo airport  on June 23 of that year and was

granted asylum by Putin August 1?  The tables had not only turned but "the funeral

 baked meats. Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables," to borrow

another line from 'Hamlet.'  You have to provide your own

 metaphor for the quote.

 

I must to bed, Horatio.  Keep up your good work.

     Lenin was not Russian

Savyindallas's picture

Nor was Stalin  -nor were 85% of the Leninist Politburo and Central Committee--they were non-Russian Jews. 

earleflorida's picture

stalin was a georgian

lenin was born in simbirsk, oblast (Ulyanovsk region) province

~ 100 miles sw of moscow   

Maria Alexandrovna, Lenin's mother was the daughter of Alexander Blank, a baptised Jew who rose to become a wealthy doctor and landowner in Kazan. He was the son of Moishe Blank, a jewish merchant from Volhynia who had married a Swedish woman by the name of Anna Ostedt. Lenin's jewish ancestry was always hidden by the Soviet authority which after his death was so ordered by Slanin that no-living Bolshevik will ever expose for fear of execution!

Lenin was Jewish, Mongol, Swedish, and German.

Lenin lived off his mothers estate when in exile in Paris and Zurich-- he learned to read German in order to read MARX's

His 'will' was to be buried at his beloved homestead next to his beloved mother, but Stalin denied it!, for propaganda purpose as also Lenin's jewish heritage.

Ps. Lenin lived a charmed life with his fathers nobility title.

sadly his elder Alexander bother was involved in the failed assassination attempt on Tsar Alexander III in the 1880s and executed,...--- this has a profound effect on Lenin.

Lenin's family --- mother, father, sisters (Maria and Anna) and brother(deseased Alexander/executed) were 'BORN' and raised in Mother Russia!

in the end lenin favored trotsky over the triumvirate to be his successor but died before his 'testament' was shown the light of day by stalin (General Secretary), kamanev and zimoview

Saying that Lenin was not Russian is like saying MLK was not American.  He certainly had a mixed "ethnic" background, being 1/4 converted Jewish, but he was born and raised near Moscow.  That said, he and his bagman, Trotsky, were in bed with the Rothschild cabal.  And it is quite true, as well, that ethnic Jews dominated the Russian Bolsheviks.  As they were all atheists, one could not call them religious Jews.

i said nothing about lenin not being russian.

his father was a russian, a high ranking bureaucrat and his mother was of jewish (i mentioned his ancesrty for a reason) ancestry.

the russian peasants didn't know the difference from a pole, ukranian, siberian, fin...--- in fact the only thing that matter in 1905-1917 was a their share of the agriculural land taken from the bourgeois and gentry during the  2nd`revolution.

http://alphahistory.com/russianrevolution/tsarist-government/

russia was all villages/towns within ethnic-centric regions and totally backwards.illiteracy was epidemic and modern farming was still considered 17th/18th century european style.

only petrograd (St. Petersburg) in the north was modern and moscow with a strong proletariet.

the german population in russia was very influential in the [see link above] Russian high courts/ Council of Ministers, and... there were jews also!

the german's changed their names when WWI began. { alot of german spies}

the predominate jewish influential settlements of wealthy jews was in poland and the western ukraine

Note: Kaiser Wihelm II and Tsar Nicholas II were 3rd cousins and both were the great-grandsons of Tsar Paul I of Russia---... with kaiser wilhelm II of germany a first cousin of Nicholas II wife Alexandra ([Alix of Hesse][the german?]) Tsarine?Empreess of Russia 

Note2: Nicholas II {Russia], Alexandra [his wife the German?] and Kaiser Wilhelm II (germany) were all first [1st] cousins of King George V of Great Britain

and it was King George V that denied Nicholas II, his wife , four daughters and sickly son political amnesty in England. The Bolsheviks soon killed them all ---ordered by Stalin

sarz's picture

"...ordered by Stalin." You must have meant Lenin. There is an eight-part new Russian documentary on the killing of the Russian royal family. The research on the project has led to the discovery that it was not Lenin but Trotsky (Bronstein) who owas behind it.

this is true about the jews making up a majority of the bolsheviks, but the proletariet and peasants didn't know this,... in fact they didn't know whom lenin was until sept/1918 when he was nearly assassinated by fanny kaplan, eventually executed

she put two lead bullets in him. one in the right shoulder and another lodged in his neck that couldn't be removed,... and she was jewish (SRs, Kadets and Mensheviks etal. CT-Rev'ls supported/sponsored her. Some say she didn't fire the shots?!?

this is when the 'red Terror' happened endorsed by trotsky, stalin and lenin-- the Ckeka used the Spanish inquistion torture and killing techinques--- fear was the name of control?

Partially true, but not 100%. In 2012, if you remember Obama and Hillary's infamous attempts to "reset" relationships with Russia- that was basically the NWO trying to entice Russia to join them. That was Putin's chance to sell out his country to the corporate globalists but he held firm and did not relent. Ever since then, starting in 2014 with the Ukraine crisis, it has been the West beginning an all out campaign to demonize Putin and effect regime change in Russia in order to install a pro-Western corporate globalist as the leader of Russia. They greatly underestimated Russia though, and ever since then Russia has gone on the counter offensive and seems to be succeeding nicely. 

So no, Russia is not in the "NWO", even though they were made an offer a few years ago.

therealestg9's picture

Sorry but how do we know for sure? There isn't any way to find out for sure whether the Central Bank's loyalty lies to Putin or to foreign mulitnational banking interests. Since it seems to have the support of Putin, I am going to assume it is under his control, but I could definitely be proven wrong given any relevant evidence.

MEFOBILLS's picture

Yes, Russian central bank follows BIS rules.  But, both China and Russia have found ways to circumvent bankster games.  For example, China has state banks that issue Yuans as debt, and then forgives said debt.  This then puts debt free money into China's money supply.

Russia has done debt instrument swaps with China, that then puts Rubles in Chinese hands, and Yuans in Russian hands.  They then proceed to trade with each other.

Russia and China have both been buying their own gold production.  Under BIS rules, gold is good for reserves, and this then supplants dollars.  So, Ruble emission is not entirely a function of dollar as reserve FX.

If I were Putin I also would rope-a-dope the West, and I especially would not poke the West in the eye by ejecting BIS bankers.  The timing is not right.... Russia is playing the long game.  Eventually "Atlantacists" will be ejected from Russian Central Bank.  

Glazyev and Stolypin group know very well what is going on with Russian banking and Western finance oligarchs.

According to the Saker, after the Chicago Boys raped and pillaged Russia in the 90's, the Russians made a "grand alliance" with the Atlanticists being semi-represented by Medvedev and the Nationalist anti-Zionists by Putin.  Over the years Putin has gained the upper hand in this alliance.  He seems to have put the Rothschild lackies on notice in his central bank, but has not yet given them the final boot, which could cause an outright war with the Medvedev - Atlanticist faction.  Also, it was necessary to destroy the petrodollar and have a fully working alternative to SWIFT before he makes a final cleaning of the central bank.  This coming year will probably see it.

Well, the NWO isn't exactly established yet. So it remains to be seen where Russia fits into this order.

The NWO won't be established until the east-west balance of power is removed by one gigantic birth pain concerning Israel--- which is the timepiece of world history. Prophecy hinges on Israel. Any entity touching her will get the *granite kiss* (a stonemason's term), opening a huge gash in their hand. And so, Russia who has persecuted the Jews in the motherland will not learn anything. They will attempt to invade Israel with Turkey and Iran and others. This move will open the way for a One World Govt.

In short, hold all your investments in Russia. The east won't politically be around anymore in a short while, including violent Islam.

Sad but true. I do have a little hope for the death of the USD printing press, but again very little.

Putin is sharp, and he's proved to be a much better geo strategist than any recent leaders in the West or Russia. That said if it assumes the primary role in the Middle East it will face the same non-stop energy sapping, resources wasting nonsense that all previous outside powered have faced. Shifting alliances, multi-sided wars, allies with conflicting interests, and now.. more powers with ballistic missiles, and soon nukes.. Russia is winning on the global stage ...right now.. but just because you're winning don't mean you're the lucky one. As an American that respects Russia and Putin, even if I don't always agree, I would say fine..you want to play a role in running this shit-show planet, have at it. Be careful what ya wish for. Meanwhile we got bigger fish to fry.

Iran embassy across from my old office. Absolutely no notable events. Meanwhile Jews under Rothschild sponsor mass rape of 300 children and exploding buses and subway stations
