Russia: don’t corner a Bear!

I know all the Western media propaganda depicts Russia as the evil aggressor (in a situation in which an anyway regularly elected government (for how much despicable) has been dethroned by a US sponsored revolution), but it would be better to let the Bear sleep than stoking the fires as the US continuously are doing.

Some explanation.

Putin has been by far the cleverest, if evil, politician around (excluding the Chinese)

Putin is stoking the fire or Russian nationalist (there are talks of a show trial of Gorbachev as the responsible of the USSR – logically part of a US conspiracy)

If real sanctions will be imposed Russia could retaliate cutting the gas (or rising the gas price) for Europe devastating the European economy that is looking at some frail hints of recovery.

Russia could easily take over Eastern Ukraine and, military, there is nothing that anyone can do.

If really cornered Russia could launch a world war 3 style cyber attack on the US. Russia has some of the best cyber attack specialisation. Do not under estimate the event. All your workplace, traffic management, utilities can be hit with a denial of service attack. I do not think that it will eventuate as it would be a World War 3 event.

I strictly do not believe in it, but it is too much of a funny coincidence not to write about …Nostradamus he predicted that a great war will start from the Black Sea in 2013/2015. Coincidence.

PS out of curiosity I read Nostradamus bits myself, once upon a time during a train strike. It is so convoluted that you can make him say whatever you want. But one of the last book was written in 2000…too far in the past for someone to make up stories about the Black Sea. You can always say that if you make enough stories some will be right (which is true). Anyway too strange not to write about it.

And Syrian keeps on dying

As I told you in a post before the Swiss peace talk became quickly a farce, but the powers had to show that they were doing something.

The famous deal about the gas weapon is also a farce (4% of the supposed stockpile has been destroyed…missing completely the deadline).

The main battle is now between the Pro Western Syrian versus the pro Al -Qaeda militants (and expanding in Iraq) that seized the main oil fields in Syria and are allying themselves with Assad.

Nobody has a real interest in ending the war that more and more is a Saudi vs Iranian battleground, with Iraq and Lebanon as collateral damage.

And the most efficient  weapon dispersion control  is done by Israel that keeps on plucking out of the field the most dangerous weapon system.

Almost a definition of Middle Eastern Hell. Pity Syria was such a beautiful and multi cultured country.

No relief for Syria

Syria descended in a war everybody against everybody and, unfortunately, there is no end in sight.

The Geneve peace talk are a mere farce, the disinterested big powers need to show that they are doing something.

The reality is that even looking at history Syria has been Syria for approximately 250 years. The rest has been different tribes fighting each other backed by bigger powers in the region.

Iran is a “war playground” for Iran and Saudi – with all other sides pretty much disinterested. Iran now in peace talks with US is not interested in backing off. Saudis again are interested to keep the pressure on Iran.

There are jihads spillages in Iraq and Lebanon – specially the Iraq one will be fought hardly as they interfere with oil upsetting Iran, US and Turkey. But no reprieve for Syria. Real Politik at its worst.

Countdown to Syria

An attache’ to President Obama just released notes that indicate that the US will not wait for the full UN investigation into the nerve gas attack.

-It is pretty clear it is a gas attack, confirmed by Medicine Sans Frontier

-the rebel do not have delivery systems to mount a chemical attack.

The easiest way for the US to attack is using cruise missiles (4 warships have been moved in the area, plus there will be some subs around there) aiming at crippling the Syrian Air Force.

Naturally the first consequence for the markets will be a spike in oil and a sell-off in shares. Then we will have to see what happens and hopefully the war will not escalate (already Lebanon is on a verge of a crisis).
