BRIDGEHEADS AND RUBICONS

 

It is true that God's patience nor human madness has limit.

If, after the aggression in Ukraine, Europe faced the great war on the continent, the whole chain of events would only further convince the humankind of the progressing inadequacy of the Kremlin ...

Rubicon in this direction is Putin´s statement from December where he regards Syria as "an excellent training bridgehead" for the latest Russian developments of mass destruction with  using nuclear weapons there, too ...

Now the world needs to leave any attempts to "appease" Putin's Russia in the past and immediately begin to search for ways how to neutralize the global nuclear threat from Russia to our planet.

In my previous post I have outlined - in general terms - the story of incorporating "the Chechen factor" in the development of modern Russia.  The purpose of this post is to open the eyes of the world to see how the Kremlin is using the same "Chechen element" in dealing with its geopolitical objectives in the light of the global revanchism as it is understood by Putin.

Below you can find a short passage about the development processes in the Chechen resistance, in the Middle East and the attitude toward ISIS - Chechens ...

During two Russian - Chechen wars the Kremlin has killed all the presidents of the democratic Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, taking them even abroad (as happened with Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev in Qatar in 2004).

Some of them died, barely entering their office, as happened with Saidulayev who was elected president after Maskhadov's death in 2005. 

 

HOW ICHKERIA WAS KILLED

Doku Umarov was the one of long-livers among Chechen leaders; he died under mysterious circumstances in 2013 and became "a gravedigger" of the Chechen statehood.

He was elected president and the commander of the forces of the Chechen resistance after Saidulayev in 2006, but in 2007  he proclaimed  himself the emir of "the Caucasus Emirate" - an Islamic theocracy based on Sharia rule that united all the Muslim people of the North Caucasus. Umarov has declared war on "Taguchi" - all written laws other than the Quran, and added that all the countries of the world participating in the hostilities on the territory of a Muslim country automatically became enemies of the Emirate of the Caucasus ...

This was seen as an anti-constitutional coup by most sympathizers of Chechen independence, and as such, it split the resistance movement, and allowed Umarov to succeed only in one thing- to enter in a list of personal enemies of the United States.

In addition, these statements undermined the legitimacy of the struggle of the Chechen people for their freedom in the eyes of world community, marginalizing the resistance movement in the end and firmly linking it to international Islamic terrorism.

In response to a statement by Umarov, Akhmed Zakayev, General Representative abroad of Ichkeria  has said in London that all actions taken by Umarov for the collapse of the Chechen State are the result of the Kremlin's intelligence operations, and that he can provide proofs for that. Zakayev also predicted the coming breakdown of the resistance, which was, in his view, the ultimate goal of the operation.

An eloquent and for many people unexpected turn of this story was the coincidence of Umarov´s and Putin´s purposes in relation to Zakayev - the Chechen  most hated by Kremlin whom Umarov soon sentenced to death, while Russia for many years could not get him because to Zakayev has been given the political asylum in England ...

 

CALIPH NOT FOR AN HOUR

After the emergence of ISIS, surprising mass disappearance began among the resistance fighters in Chechnya and the whole Caucasus.  However, almost everyone who disappeared, appeared after a while with a new Russian foreign passport - in Syria or Iraq, mostly - in the ranks of ISIS.

After the announcement of Umarov´s death, some cleric from Dagestan, not recognized by all, was proclaimed the leader of  "the Caucasus Emirate"...

The result of all these perturbations was sad for the Chechen resistance and Caucasians in general, because since autumn 2014 until summer 2015 almost all the commanders active in guerrilla groups of the Caucasus swore allegiance to Al-Baghdadi,the ISIS chalif - and the Caucasus has been declared an Islamic caliphate by a new chalif.

So, at this stage, Chechens succeeded in their first attempt to create their free country ...

However, the number of Chechens, Dagestanians and other native Caucasian people in the ranks of ISIS is now estimated to be two to five thousand.  What can I say, if about 1,200 young people from the Caucasus were killed only in one storming of the Kurdish city of Kobane ...

As by waving a magic wand, between 2013 and 2015 in Syria and Iraq, the whole network of commanders of terrorist groups with a symbolic addition to their name "Al-Shishani" (Chechen – in Arabic):  Muslim Al-Shishani, Seifullakh Al-Shishani, Abdullah Al-Shishani came into existence... 

 

REDBEARDS - NEW POLICY FACTORS

 The story of one of them, named "Abu Umar Al-Shishani." is deeply revealing.

 That man was Abu Omar al-Shishani Tarhan - an ethnic Georgian by birth and Orthodox, who served in the Georgian army, holding the rank of sergeant and resigned for health reasons ... Legend tells that it was the very moment Tarhan decided to become a Muslim and obtained the most important element of his "being Chechen" - fiery-orange beard, very medialized that became a kind of brand - sign of the participation of Chechens in ISIS ...

We can only guess what criteria the leadership of ISIS consisting mainly of military officers from Saddam's Baath, has used to appoint the fired sergeant known as unfit for action of the Georgian army - a commander for storming Kobane that as the most important goal of the Caliphate ...

The fact that in the midst of the battle for Kobane skirmishes began in several European countries between Kurds and Chechens, was predictable, for "the Chechen propaganda” through all media available to ISIS and Kremlin being enormous, and the Kurds were responsible for heavy losses among the inhabitants of the city - for all Chechens ...

Many point to the fact that in addition to Chechens and other Caucasians Kremlin managed to  introduce into the ranks of ISIS dozens of spies, agents and saboteurs as well.  The rumour is that this was a part of Putin's plan for multi-profile invasion into the Middle East and that's why Putin´s air strikes in Syria miss ISIS, but hit all the positions of the pro-Western opposition ... 

 

TRANSFORMED INTO MANCURTS.

We can say, therefore, that the entire post-Gorbachev history of this part of the world, the emergence of Putin's Russia and its later transformation is in some way connected to the Chechens, for all the key events of this period were determined by "the Chechen issue" or took place with the participation of  Chechens on either side.

This is evident - the most active use of Chechen element by Putin for both finally deleting the issue of the Chechen State´s independence and for flirting with the global Sunnism (due to the fact that the Chechens are Sunni Muslims, who have won military glory in the Muslim world in two recent Russian-Chechen wars).

At first glance, the part Kadyrov's puppet administration is playing is unsightly, indeed: it seems, this Chechen speaking temporary employee is not yet satisfied that the Kremlin has used them in two aggressive imperial wars - against Georgia and the Ukraine. This Putin´s gang - with doomed mankurts are plunging now into the war "for Putin" against Syrians and Turks. This behaviour, however, can be understood, if you give them medical evaluation, for here "Stockholm Syndrome" is superimposed on the age-old Russian adverse selection in the Caucasus with its traditions of "the servicemen" and a special privileged status of vassals.

Putin, who is bidding on revanchism and imperialism in the Russian people for the approval of his own cult, became also the first ruler of Russia who went so far as to conclude a direct "suzerain-vassal" treaty with Chechens.  However, a factor that the contract signed with the Russia-friendly Chechens who have renounced the ideals of independence in exchange for life, makes the stability of the Putin regime particularly shaky.

But this is the subject for the next article ...

 

UNDERSTANDING, ALBEIT LATE

The international community should understand one thing: knocking "the Chechen card" out of inadequate Putin's hand, brings the world hope for a bloodless solution of the humankind´s problems called "Putin´s Schizophrenic Russia."

Europe and America (and the rest of reasonable humankind) should immediately change their attitude to the Chechen issue: instead of ignoring – that is so convenient for Putin - they should most energetically support the Chechen resistance through the establishment of cooperation with the government in exile of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

As soon as Chechens will see that the West supports them in their quest for independence, there will be the momentary consolidation of the nation and there will be no trace of Russian power left in Chechnya ...  Also, the issue of "Islamisation" of Chechen society will come to naught, because the growth of fanaticism among the people is due to desperation because of the military-political situation where Chechens were left alone by the world "face to face" with the aggression of the most powerful empire in the world.

There is a sufficient evidence if you recall that under the Constitution of 1992 Chechnya was "a secular, democratic republic" with no single Islamist in the parliament of the peaceful Chechnya before the Russian invasion...
