Back in August, when Saudi Arabia and the US were pushing for a military strike against Syria, Saudi Arabia’s head of intelligence, Prince Bandar bin Sultan offered Russia a deal in exchange for Russia’s agreement to allow US and British forces unimpeded military action in Syria:
Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord. “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” he allegedly said.
DailySheeple (h/t Darren) In a stunning leak of minutes from the meeting made public by the UK Telegraph, the Prince also offered Russia a strategic pact to control the price, production and distribution of oil throughout Europe in exchange for Russia’s agreement to allow US and British forces unimpeded military action in Syria.
This can be construed only one way. Saudi Arabia threatened Russian President Vladimir Putin with Chechen terrorist attacks during the Olympic games if he doesn’t back off U.S. intervention in Syria.
What the Saudis may not have realized is that Putin is one of the most powerful political figures in the world, and most certainly in the region. He is ex-KGB, believes in the old school of thought of Russian domination, has access to thousands of nuclear weapons, and isn’t afraid to go to war. And he probably doesn’t take well to threats from middle eastern Princes.
According to insiders, Putin was furious about the threat from Saudi Arabia (and by proxy, the United States). So much so that it has been claimed that his counter-offer to Saudi Arabia was severe.
If the United States moves forward with an attack on Syria, the Russians would respond with a massive military counter-strike targeting Saudi Arabia.
EU Times A grim “urgent action memorandum” issued today from the office of President Putin to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is ordering a “massive military strike” against Saudi Arabia in the event that the West attacks Syria.
According to Kremlin sources familiar with this extraordinary “war order,” Putin became “enraged” after his early August meeting with Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan who warned that if Russia did not accept the defeat of Syria, Saudi Arabia would unleash Chechen terrorists under their control to cause mass death and chaos during the Winter Olympicsscheduled to be held 7-23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.
Well, we know the military strike on Syria by the U.S. didn’t happen. Are the recent Chechen Muslim terrorist attacks in Russia the Saudi prince’s way of making good on his threat to disrupt the Sochi Olympics? Will there be more attacks leading up to the Games and during them? Saudi Arabia has taken on the Big Bear who may very well retaliate against the Saudis if the attacks continue to escalate.
