Eradicating the Creative Chaos from the Region
During the past week, emerged a number of indicators of the beginning of the transition from the secret to the public, with regard to efforts to calm the regional situation, and gradual transformation towards normal forms of cooperation instead of hostility. This includes bilateral relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia and Syria, and between Syria and Turkey.
It is clear in this context that the center of the organization of these efforts is only Moscow, and that its solid core is the Astana trio, while its broader axis is the whole of the region.
The radiating impact of Astana to a wider circle was predicted by all those who understood the meaning of this system as a regional system with international influence, and as an initial expression of the new international balance of power whose essence is based on ending the policies of unequal exchange at the economic level, and ending the policies of dependency, creative chaos and sabotage at the political level. In a clearer sense: the gradual removal of the Western system and its evils from the region.
The transition of these pacification efforts from secret to public, is in itself an indication that these efforts have gone a long way in their progress, although this does not of course mean that they are nearing their end. These efforts still have a difficult path to pass.
In discussing and analyzing these efforts, it must be borne in mind that the roots of the hostilities, dependence and sabotage left and fed by the West, starting from the European colonialism to the United States, are still deep and profound, and therefore their transgression will not be merely a product of deals or agreements, but rather the product of a historical process that will take its depth and breadth. If the regimes that currently govern the states of the region are mostly Western-dependent regimes and hostile to their peoples directly or indirectly, this does not negate the fact that the interests of the peoples of these countries and the interests of the States themselves, as historical social and political institutions and structures, consist in their cooperation and rapprochement, These interests are precisely the ones that make their way even through the leaderships who are looking for exits from their crises. At the top of these crises is their dependence on the crisis-laden and declining West.
In parallel with this process, it does not seem at all surprising the campaigns of attacks that are being launched by both "loyal" and "opposing" circles on Russia at times, and on Iran at other times, under various pretexts, including the deteriorating living conditions caused by Western sanctions and the large domestic corruption that is still insisting on buying and importing goods from the West at prices higher than the international price, and spreading rumors among the people that the allied countries refuse to sell those goods, while this same large corruption is the one who refuses to buy them!
Ironically, the form of the attack which is run by the great forces of corruption blames Russia in order to praise Iran, or blames Iran in order to praise Russia alternately, suggesting that these forces have so much arrogance and folly to imagine that they can thus bring about sedition between the two countries.
The new system of regional relations, which are under formation, in the historical sense, will be based on two main pillars: cooperation and equality between nations and the sovereignty of peoples over their countries. This is what disturbs the great corrupters and brokers working for the West, not only in Syria but in the region as a whole!
