Putin has been very cautious in his responses to NATO aggression in both the Ukraine and Syria. The Turkish economy has already been severely damaged since that Russian SU-24 jet was shot down. The Turkish bond and stock markets are collapsing. Tourism and other industries have taken as much of a blow as Russia would care to administer at this time. In keeping with Putin’s less bellicose responses and his long range goal of dethroning the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, I would offer the following suggestions:
Putin could offer Iraq the same S-300 anti-missile and anti-aircraft system he has given to Syria and Iran. This has been a Game Changer for both Syria and Iran. The Syrians will soon be able to defend themselves from US-NATO air strikes. The US has been bombing Iraqi militia men who had been battling ISIS in Fallujah and Ramadi. NATO has been dropping supplies by air to the terrorists. Please note that this is the Antey version of the S-300 and it is far superior to earlier S-300s. Giving Iraq a first class air defense will severely limit the options of both the US and Turkey.
Syria has already agreed to allow Iranian planes to use Syrian Air bases to help in the fight against ISIS. Putin and the Iranians should make the same offer to Iraq so that the four nations could wage an effective air war against ISIS.
Senator John McCain has told the Iraqi Prime Minister that 100,000 Turkish, Arab and NATO troops were coming to his country and there was nothing he could do about it. In addition to giving Iraq the S-300 system and stationing Russian and Iranian planes on Iraqi soil, Putin could encourage Syria and Iran to negotiate a defensive treaty with Iraq. If a few thousand Iranian troops armed with 210 kilometer (130 mile) range rocket artillery and 600 kilogram (1,322 pound) warheads were to be parked on the Saudi border, the Saudis would get the message. The Iranians could offer to negotiate a non-aggression pact with Kuwait. Iran could make the same offer to the Saudis provided they improved their treatment of the Shi’ites within their borders and the Yemenis to their south. This will be difficult, if not impossible, for the current Saudi king to do. But at least he or his successor will not be able to send troops into Iraq.
Russia has been waging a successful diplomatic war against Turkey and the US. Putin has proven that Turkey is working with ISIS to steal Syrian and Iraqi oil. I would recommend a new opening on the diplomatic front. China has condemned the Turkish invasion of Iraq. I would ask Putin and China to extend Observer status in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization to Iraq and Syria. Iran, Pakistan and India are being elevated to full membership in the SCO from their current Observer status. This will add to the stature of those two struggling nations and make European members of NATO think twice before they journey any further into American madness.
Also on the diplomatic front, I would strongly urge the Russians to offer the Sunni Muslims of Iraq’s Anbar province an exit strategy that does not lead to them dying. ISIS grew in popularity over night in Anbar because the Sunnis had been suffering from Shi’ite abuses which included torture and assassination. The Sunnis of Anbar will need some sort of armed police force to protect themselves but they will have to accept a federal government with a capitol in Baghdad. This agreement will push ISIS out of Iraq as soon as the Russian and Iranian air forces combine with the Iraqis to kill the terrorists.
Finally, I would recommend that the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) alliance issue a call for a regional conference for the New (ISIS free) Mideast which could be held in Cairo. China could announce a pledge to invest $250 billion in the Mideast. Interested parties would be asked to send relevant diplomats and businessmen to apply. That would just about sink US imperialism in the Mideast. China could work out a series of business deals which would require all transactions be made in yuan, rubles or gold but nothing in US dollars. That would be the end of the Petrodollar.
Similar conferences could be held in Asia, Africa and Latin America. China has already made pledges of $100 billion to Africa and $250 billion to Latin America. But they could reaffirm their commitment and negotiate new investments and trade agreements that would also undermine the dollar and the American economy.
The Petrodollar was created in 1973 which was two years after the US had closed the gold window refusing to redeem US dollars with gold. Henry Kissinger approached the Saudis and had them agree to sell oil only for dollars. The US had agreed to protect the Saudis. The Petrodollar created a demand for dollars as Europeans and Japanese had to first buy dollars before they could import oil. That helped America’s balance of payments. The Saudi purchase of US Treasury bonds also helped solve America’s budget deficit. The Petrodollar is dying. The Petrodollar required high oil prices so the Saudis could afford to buy US Treasury bonds. Crude oil prices have plummeted. The Saudis are depleting their meager resources battling Yemen. The Chinese and other foreigners have been dumping Treasury bonds. The Federal Reserve has been printing money to buy the bonds China and other nations have been selling. That won’t last long.
In 2016 the Saudis will wake up one morning and notice that they do not just share a border with Iraq but they share a border with the Syrian-Iraqi-Iranian-Chinese-Russian alliance. That day will change history and be the end of America’s Empire in the sand.
The US dollar and economy will collapse. But at least Americans will no longer wage war against human beings all over the globe to benefit Wall Street and Israel. The Bankers and the state of Israel would be cast adrift. But this will open a once in a life time opportunity for Gentiles to rebuild their world.
