I don't know what you think I am agreeing with or not.
I know Medvedev clearly warned that if Saudi (or other) ground force is allowed to enter Syria it will lead to major war, and another war on Earth
(not world war, the translation is misspelled, said Russian official sources). Today, one day after the publication, Medvedev made another warning
that the relations of Russia-West dropped to Cold War era. He said other things as well, I am not his secretary to copy and paste every word. I take
the trend and comment it. If you want to copy and paste go into his website and do so, and interpret it as yo wish so.
BREAKING: #Turkey shells Kurdish targets in N. #Syria – Turkish govt source on.rt.com...
Turkey seems to want the war with Russia more than everything else. Where are Daesh here, Turkey persecutes the Kurds for decades. EU objected that
many times, including the death sentence of ...the ex-Kurd leader, whatever his name. This is not something to happen overnight. Turkey went the road
of islamization dictatorship long ago. Saudi never went the road of democracy. Now these two are going to enter the vast land controlled of Daesh and
to claim victory (they may not find resistance on the ground).
Russia warned against that, in most explicit words allowed for diplomacy. If that is not understood, then what. The West does not have the luxury
option to think Russia will fight in Syria only Turkey and Saudi Arabia to death, similar as Afghanistan. No, Russia warned the West that will lead to
yet another major war on Earth. Understand it as you wish. One has to understand diplomatic language that a PM follows, especially Medvedev. May be
that's why he is the one who make that, not Putin. Putin already warned many times, more not less than Medvedev.
Now let some poster go and say they all are puppets and the Russians are obliged to vote for them. Good but not good enough. You have the most modern
missiles of Russia stationed in Syria for the last 3 years. Nuclear capable. The idea that Russia will fight with the worst absolute monarchy on the
planet, the Saudi, and incidentally it may draw other Muslim countries on the side of the "defender of Muslim religion" is ILL CONCEIVED. I am not
answering only you of course. I am commenting the situation. The idea that will be a separate war and the West will only give advises, is a wrong
idea. Especially if that war becomes nuclear. We already know from Saudis that they wanted to purchase ready nukes from Pakistan. May be they did?
At top of that, pope and Russian patriarch spoke today 13 Feb in first ever meeting. No this is not off topic. Francis is known for his radical
position, and Kirill is a big friend of Putin. They expressed concern of the Christian population persecuted by....not by the Syrian government or the
Russian bombs! They said, two metropolitans (equal to cardinals) are being held hostages in Aleppo (not by the governmental forces of course). That is
practical endorsement of a crusade leaded by Russia. Of course other interpretations are possible, and I will not go deeper into that, only to be
accused of drifting the topic.
The topic is one, how to deal with the coming WW3. WW3 is inside the headline of this thread, and outside the words of Medvedev himself. Because he is
politician who speaks diplomatic language. A forum is not a political meeting before cameras. A forum discusses without diplomatic language.
I take a pause, have a good discussion!
