Manipulating oil prices by provoking a war or funding terrorists in the Middle East? Russia's false flag in the Middle East?
Curiously, Russia has suddenly and unexpectedly changed its tone/ narrative with EU and the West or……… How Putin could manipulate oil prices by provoking a war or funding terrorists in the Middle East. Russia's false flag in the Persian Gulf?
From yesterday: We now hear signals for a new conciliatory tone (pacification or deception …one of the tactics of Soft Power Psychological Manipulation https://bit.ly/1ECIMAw ) or narrative from Putin; “Let’s fight terrorism together” or in reality “we’ll play both sides of the game, we fund terrorists and we can stop them after they do their job of boosting oil prices for us.”
Today Andrei Piontkovsky, says that:
“Putin is now frantically looking for a new way of peaceful coexistence (read war or “conflict of convenience” for Russia or terrorist attacks-WD) with the West. Having essentially suffered a serious defeat in all his plans- the idea of "Russian world", "New Russia or Novorossia", nuclear blackmail-he hopes to conclude a new deal with the West on the most favorable terms, so that all his actions do not look like an the ignominious defeat. All [RU] agents in the West, and now Putin will aggressively push the thesis-we need Putin, he can help us in Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, do not drive him into a corner, let's help him save face. Loud statements are expected at the UN General Assembly, where Putin will travel (in September, "Apostrophe") with his new plan of peaceful coexistence with the West. In the remaining time if he manages to sell Washington his military support to Assad as a major contribution of the Kremlin in the common cause of fighting terrorism, then this plan will gain some flesh and content. Program from Putin is to support Assad, and force the West to renounce support for Ukraine, according to Piontkovsky Source: Putin prepares to deal with the West, in order to avoid shame https://apostrophe.com.ua/article/world/ex-ussr/2015-09-02/putin-gotovit-sdelku-s-zapadom-chtobyi-izbejat-pozora/2199
Following the same identical script, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the European Union, Vladimir Chizhov today told the EU:
He offer a way to build EU-Russia relations as “a genuine partnership of equals. ”This included removing sanctions, which he said were shown to be costly and are therefore “hardly what the EU needs in the current volatile economic environment.” He also called for a pragmatism to be prized over ideology before concluding by speaking of the areas where he thought Russia and the EU should be actively cooperating. Listing terrorism, illegal migration, drug and human trafficking, he urged that Russia and the EU should reopen channels of communication that had been largely closed as a result of the Ukraine crisis, adding: “while Russia and the EU severely limited their cooperation, the terrorists did not.” Source: The European Union has been told to abandon its “messianic” project of exporting democracy by Russia. https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/09/02/abandon-your-messianic-project-of-exporting-democracy-russia-tells-eu/
Reading between the lines: In fact, the focus on terrorists or even a false flag provoking a war, can come in very handy right now for PUTIN. Not only is the FSB is openly supporting ISIS terrorists (see Russian FSB fueling ISIS with Jihadists. Russia's Playing a Double Game With Islamic Terror https://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/08/23/russia-s-playing-a-double-game-with-islamic-terror.html but this trick has worked for the USSR in the past.
This idea was already floated last month, but the commentary neglected to mention that the KGB has already tried this successfully before. https://windowoneurasia2.blogspot.ca/2015/08/might-putin-provoke-war-in-middle-east.html
Terrorists today can help PUTIN boost oil prices in the Middle East , just like they did in the 1970’s. What makes you think the Putin won’t replay this tried and true tactic from the KGB USSR playbook to reverse the price of oil now? (see historical evidence below)
Expect Russian incursions possibly into Syria (via the Russian naval base in Tartus in operation since 1971) or through proxies in Iran or Egypt
2006 Quote from Yegor Gaidar’s book: The Soviet Collapse: Grain and Oil By Yegor Gaidar
“While intellectual capacity was not the strongest quality of the Soviet leadership, they still understood the need to manipulate the oil market. Excerpts from Politburo materials indicate that the head of the Committee for State Security (KGB), Yury Andropov, facilitated contacts between the KGB and the Arab terrorists, who sought assistance for terrorist attacks on oil fields in order to keep energy prices high.5 The general resolution was that the Soviet Union should support the Arab (Palestinian--WD) terrorists in this battle.6”
Yegor Gaidar is director of the Institute for Economies in Transition in Moscow. Between 1991 and 1994, he was acting prime minister of Russia, minister of economy, and first deputy prime minister. Between 1993 and 2003, Gaidar was a founder and a co-chairman of the Russia’s Choice and the Union of Rightist Forces Parties, and a deputy of the State Duma. His most recent book, Gibel’ Imperii: Uroki dlyasovremennoi Rossii [The Collapse of an Empire: Lessons for Modern Russia], was published in 2006.
