War and Peace — revisited: by Pepe Escobar

War and Peace — revisited: by Pepe Escobar | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Russian President Vladimir Putin once again had to pull all stops at the International Valdai Discussion Club’s 12th annual meeting in Sochi to highlight the tremendous seriousness of the current geopolitical juncture.
Putin speaking at Valdai

Putin speaking at Valdai

As a compact Greatest Hits on comparative foreign policy and military strategy, this already qualifies as required reading in political science courses everywhere. Putin’s full speech, plus a crucial Q&A, is here. The speech on video is here.

Let’s go straight to some of the unmissable highlights.

On “moderate rebels” in Syria: “We shouldn’t play with words here and divide the terrorists into moderate and non-moderate … The difference, according to the “specialists” (Team Obama), seems to be that “moderate” bandits behead people softly … Success in fighting terrorists cannot be reached if using some of them as a battering ram to overthrow disliked regimes (because) it’s just an illusion that they can be dealt with (later), removed from power and somehow negotiated with.”

On the partition of Syria: “The territorial division of Syria is unacceptable. It is not going to resolve the conflict. The conflict will acquire a permanent character. Nothing good will come out of this … Just imagine that in case of taking Damascus or Baghdad, terrorist bands might have received, practically, the status of the official government. The bridgehead for global expansion could have been created. Does anyone think about that?”

On Russia’s air campaign in Syria: “I’d like to stress once again that is completely legitimate, and its only aim is to aid in establishing peace.” Putin makes a clear distinction between Washington’s target – “Assad must go” – and Moscow’s: to fight all brands of Salafi-jihadi terror before they come to Russia.
