EL ESTADO ISLÁMICO: UN CALIFATO FALLIDO Y ENCANALLADO. PARTE 2ª.

(CONTINUACIÓN)

El Estado Islámico de Siria e Irak (suroeste de Asia)

En general, los grupos yihadistas han fracasado en incorporarse activa y firmemente a un grupo social amplio, que dé cobertura e impulso permanente a su “movimiento imperialista socio religioso”. Su “catequesis de la violencia” les permite a ellos prepararse anímicamente para la muerte gloriosa y en paz, e, incluso para al suicidio, en la realización de sus acciones puntuales. Pero esa prédica vesánica no es un arma para la conversión de grupos sociales. Y hay una razón fundamental para ello: su “credo” carece de posibilidades de aceptación, triunfo y permanencia, fuera de los avatares de una guerra. Los grupos yihadistas actúan con una brutalidad innecesaria e indiscriminada, que los descalifica ante el Islam, el Corán y la Sunna o tradición islámica, recogida en los hadises o “comentarios y hechos” recogidos y escritos de Mahoma. Esta falta de legitimidad religiosa, provoca la ausencia absoluta de ulemas y muftíes venerables, respetados y piadosos a su lado. Su supuesta “ideología islámica” se basa en unos pocos versículos favorables del Corán (éste tiene unos 4200), en algunos hechos históricos de otrora, cuando la Yihad menor (o violenta) fue aplicable y útil para la Umma, y no en la totalidad del mensaje del Islam. La Yihad mayor es el esfuerzo personal de acercamiento a Alá y a su mensaje: primero por la ascesis o purificación personal (neutralización del ego) y luego por la plena disposición anímica a sus mociones, transmitidas por vía intelectual o de entendimiento.

Las Complicaciones Operativas de los Yihadistas.

Al-Qaeda actuó en Siria en 2011 y 2012 a través del Frente al-Nusrah por la Liberación de los Pueblos de Oriente. Este nombre era y es de longitud inversamente proporcional a su capacidad real operativa. Al-Nusrah fue el responsable de los grandes atentados aislados e indiscriminados y con bombas en la capital y otras ciudades. Buscaban introducir un factor de caos y fractura social en los verdaderos parámetros de esta guerra. Que no lograron producir por la discontinuidad de los atentados y por saberse la autoría de esos ataques vesánicos. En la rebelión contra la ocupación de 2003 en Irak, al-Qaeda poseía líneas de abastecimientos y reclutamiento desde Siria, que actualmente son utilizadas en el otro sentido. Y desde Turquía también recibían “muyahidines internacionalistas”. Y en 2012, parte de los excarcelados en varios ataques a prisiones iraquíes se incorporaron al Frente al-Nusrah, que se fortalecía en número y capacidad operativa.

Las diferencias entre el EISI y el Frente Al Nusrah nacen de un enfrentamiento personal: la animadversión entre Abu Baker al-Bagdadi, jefe del Estado Islámico de Irak (hoy, el EISI), y Abu Mohamed al-Golani, fundador del Frente Al Nusrah. Al principio, los iraquíes ayudaron a los sirios a establecer su propia organización filial de la Base. Pero, en la primavera de 2013 al-Bagdadi anunció la creación del Estado Islámico de Siria, Irak y el Levante. Y pretendió fusionar su organización con la de al-Golani. Por supuesto, el Frente al-Nusrah rechazó de plano su absorción. El iraquí al-Baghdadi se considera un discípulo directo de Osama Ben Laden. Y ya en 2007, tomó el mando del AQI, que heredó del malogrado Musab al-Zarkawi, cambiándole luego el nombre por “Estado Islámico de Irak”.

El EISI es muy impopular en Siria, por su extremismo y por tener una mayoría cualificada de iraquíes y yihadistas de Europa y de otras partes del mundo en sus filas. Tras la reciente ocupación de Yarabulus, zona de asentamientos cristianosen el norte de Siria, decapitaron a una decena de hombres, y clavaron sus cabezas en estacas. Y los habitantes que pudieron, emigraron espantados a la localidad turca de Karkamis. El rechazo al EISI es tal que la Coalición Nacional Siria, la principal plataforma política opositora, asegura que la organización está apoyada por el régimen sirio, que teóricamente es enemigo de todos ellos. Así, en un comunicado de enero de 2014 afirmó: «La Coalición cree que el EISI está estrechamente vinculado con el régimen terrorista, y sirve directa o indirectamente, a los intereses del presidente al-Assad y su camarilla. El asesinato de sirios a manos de este grupo no deja dudas sobre las intenciones tras su creación, sus objetivos y las agendas a las que sirve, confirmados por la naturaleza de sus acciones terroristas hostiles a la Revolución siria».

Por otra parte, el Frente Islámico es una alianza creada en 2013 por siete grupos islamistas “radicales y moderados”, pero contrarios a la Red. Sus portavoces dicen que cuentan con unos 45 mil combatientes. Pero, no creemos que alcancen los 10 mil milicianos de “infantería ligera irregular”. Si el Frente se ha hecho fuerte en un punto clave como el puesto fronterizo con Turquía de Bab al Hawa, a la altura de la provincia de Hatay, el EISI es dueño desde hace cuatro meses de Azaz, villa de acceso a Alepo desde la frontera turca en Kilis. En el norte sirio actúan todos los grupos controlando trozos inconexos de terreno. El EISI mató a fines de diciembre de 2014 a Abu Rayan, un negociador de “Ahrar al-Sham”, un grupo del Frente Islámico. Al asesinato se unió el ataque del EISI a primeros de año a Kafranbel, en poder del ELS. Los enfrentamientos entre el Frente Islámico y el Estado Islámico de Siria, Irak y Levante se extendieron a barrios de Alepo y a las localidades Tel Rifat y Maskanah. El viernes 3 de febrero de 2015, una ofensiva de “Suqur al-Sham”, otro grupo del Frente, impidió al ISIS mandar refuerzos cerca de Azaz. Complicándolo todo, se formó el llamado “Ejército de los Muyahidines” sirios, donde se agrupan los adversarios del ISI y en el que se integra también el Frente al-Nusrah. Comprobamos que los terroristas islamistas están generalmente divididos ideológica, institucional y estratégicamente. Aunque las bandas rivales puedan ocasionalmente brindarse apoyo, refugio, información o suministros. Las razones son que los jefes de bandas principales suelen querer ser siempre “emires (príncipes) e intérpretes (doctores) del Islam.” Sus urgencias y preferencias organizativas y tácticas tienen bases muy mundanas y degeneradas. “Por sus acciones y frutos los conoceréis”.

Una estrategia confusa, difusa y esquizofrénica…

El mantener una estrategia similar en Siria e Irak por parte del EISI para la creación de su califato radical salifista independiente tiene varios errores importantes. Uno es luchar simultáneamente en dos países con planteamientos estratégicos objetivos diferentes. Otro es dividir sus magras fuerzas entrenadas operativas en dos frentes. En Siria, la estratégica válida para la heterogénea, múltiple y dividida oposición a al-Assad es mantener, al menos, la unidad en la estrategia militar. Para, así, hacer converger todos los esfuerzos bélicos en los distintos objetivos, simultáneos o sucesivos, que decida una jefatura superior militar, acatada por todos los grupos presentes y activos en Siria. Ya hemos visto como al-Assad suma medios y esfuerzos a su causa (milicias entrenadas de Hezbolá y de los chíies iraquíes, tropas de la Guardia Revolucionaria de Irán, reposición de armamento, equipos y municiones, apoyo político diplomático de Rusia, China e Irán), lo que le está permitiendo batir en combates diversos a los grupos de la oposición y expulsarlos de posiciones que ocupaban, algunas desde hacía cierto tiempo. La no observancia de esta estrategia, ya de supervivencia, llevará a la oposición en armas a su destrucción progresiva por el ENS.

En Irak, la estrategia de los sunníes no pretende ganar una guerra civil al régimen democrático imperfecto de Haider al-Abadi, Partido Islámico Dawa, de la mayoría chiíta. Tampoco pretende, ni podría, expulsarlos del país por agotamiento, al destacar su incapacidad para acabar con los rebeldes armados y obligándoles a asumirla. Éste fue el caso de muchas guerras de liberación nacional en los países coloniales a mediados del siglo XX. A muchos de los movimientos guerrilleros populares les bastó con resistir durante algunos años las crecidas y embestidas de los militares extranjeros. Y, así, resistiendo, cansaron a los pueblos de las metrópolis de sostener una guerra lejana, poco asumida y dañina y enervaron a sus fuerzas armadas, que fueron muchas veces incomprendidas y hasta infravaloradas en sus propios lares y solares. Los sunníes, ahora viendo venir los acontecimientos Y tras la derrota militar del EISI, lucharán por garantizar regionalmente el poder de sus tribus, basado en sus jefes aceptados, en sus “asambleas de iguales” entre los destacados de aquéllas y en el Pashtunwalli o código de honor para su comportamiento y sus derechos y deberes individuales y colectivos. Los sunníes pelearían por arrancarle a la mayoría chiíta los derechos y concesiones, que se les niegan demasiado tozudamente dentro de las reglas de la imperfecta democracia inorgánica existente en Irak.

Por ello, sus combates serían muy medidos. Y sus objetivos irán por pasos contados y sucesivos. Así, los sunníes han dejado cierta libertad de acción al Estado Islámico, con tal de que respeten su hegemonía y no pretendan establecer bases guerrilleras estratégicas en sus zonas tribales. Entonces, en casos concretos, les facilitan refugio, abastecimiento y ocultamiento temporales a sus “grupos de acción” en sus operaciones. Como fue el caso de la concentración previa de las compañías y batallones del Estado Islámico para el hostigamiento y la ocupación temporal de al-Ramadi y Faluya en diciembre de 2013.

And this is the gravity center of the fight against the solitary wolves. To preventive and isolately hunt them is very difficult, because they scarcely do not leave tracks. It is necessary to fight against the necessary instigators of their ideas (persons, companions, mass media of all kinds, trips to their foreign centers). For it, is necessary to adapt the legislations, as it has been done against the family mistreaters or the financial refined crimes, supported by the immediate communication and on line. Without harming with it the due detection and following-up by teachers, disciples, communications of all kinds and their holes.

And of this, as almost all, we have exceeded experience. In July, 1884, the liberal government of Sagasta, implanted the first Spanish law against the attacks with explosives, generally carried out by the anarchists. In her, his instigators were rightly punished; not only the material authors of the outrages, but also its inducers.

The ideologic Adaptation of the Jihad to the present times.

The Islam has to assume that the Jihad was necessary for the establishment and the defense of the believers’ primitive community. The Prophet establishing the Islamic state from the violent destruction of the jahiliyya (the existing barbarism previous to the Islam Arabic). And even the Jihad could be useful for its rapid extension through the world, according with the existing condition of culture and development of the medieval civilizations. But its historical opportunity does not exist nowadays and then it must be replaced by «another type of EFFORT in Allah’s way», the Great personal Jihad. Which concept already exists in the Sunna and that might be recaptured and proclaimed by the ulemas and the pious muftis, which are the ideologists of the real and everlasting Islam. And, certainly, those enjoy the most ample political, social and economic independence: they are respected and/or fearsome by the governments in their respective countries, and usually are those who administer the Zakat or the canonical alms.

Since the emergence of 4 principal ideologic Sunnis schools, the principle of the personal reflection effort, the ichtihad, got power in the Islam. The ichtihad is going to allow the development of the Arabic culture, so much for the civil aspects (sciences, trade, literature, art), as for the enrichment of its ideology. It is the base of Islamic lawyers as al-Shafii. The ichtihad is a source of brilliancy, creativity, enrichment, progress and peace in the way of the personal and collective effort towards God (this is the nucleus and the reason of the Islam), when already the Umma has spread and multiplied enormously through the world.

But, circa the XIth century (V century from the hégira or march to Medina), the doctors of the Law close the door to the ichtihad. The methodological Islamic approach alters: from then, it is imitating, repeating and abusing of the compendiums.

The Needs of Renovation, Commitment and Action in the Islam.

In the face of his own terrorism (war actions against general, innocent and indiscriminate targets), the Islamic world is paralyzed and do not knows what to say or do. The spokesmen and intellectual affirm that the Islam is peace and tolerance. But this is not totally true. As we know by the facts and the omissions in its disapproval and ostracism. The majority of the Muslims take away from the attacks for opportunism, to protect the Islam, worried by the increasing rejection that it suffers in Western countries. But, when do the ulemas or the muftís intervene in the polemic? Almost never…

Never was carried out inside the Islam a deep reflection on the political and religious opportunity of the violence. Does someone know Islamic active pacifists? It is not the case that the intellectual laymen Moslem react. These are not operative in the way that we know in the West, since for a good Muslim the politics, the society and the religion form the only, exclusive and inseparable Trinity established by Allah. Besides, the social and political failure of the intellectual laymen Arabs remains tied with that of the nationalistic, leftist and Europeanized elite, that stimulated the independence of the different Arabic nations after the World War II. And that created lay, «socialist» regimes rested on the clientism and the internal repression and separated by his ideology and interests from his respective Moslem societies.

Some actions by the spiritual chiefs of the Islam are attainable and they would be estimated by all. The ulemas might declare that the interests of the Islam and of the Umma have Spain and the rest of Europa as good friends, as part of Dar el-Ahd. That are the countries where the Umma does not dominate politically, but that is in peace with his inhabitants and can realize his actions and rites. The ulemas might use the institution of the takfir against the most recalcitrant, dangerous and criminal terrorists. Those who act turned aside perversely (maliciously or after being reproached by those without results) In name of the Islam. And they have not done it historically for the paralysing fear to falling down in a destructive and solvent spiral of mutual and multiple reproaches within the Umma. Let’s remember that the monolithic religious unit does not exist in the Islam. In which the people, in addition, has free access to his «submission to Allah», with only reciting the Profession of Faith. That would be equivalent, in certain form and measure, to the Christian baptism.

THE END.

THE IDEOLOGIC AND STRATEGIC PREFERENCES OF THE JIHADISTS. 2ND. PART.

(continuation)

4) The Islamic terrorists are in many places deeply divided ideologically, institutionally and strategically. Though the rivals bands could occasionally offer between them support, refuge, information or supplies. The real reasons are that the chiefs of principal bands want to be always «emirs or sheikhs and interpreters of the Islam” in his place, his region, his province… The Gaza strip is dominated for years by Hamas, a radical fundamentalist Palestinian sunni group, in direct and violent rivalry with the Palestinian government of al-Fatah in the West Bank of the Jordan. In Gaza, two branches of al-Qaeda organizations, Ansar al-Sunna and Ansar al-Islam, both derisory groups, also violently face Hamas for increasing their influence on the inhabitants. The Pakistani Taliban, principally the group Tehkrit e-Taliban Pakistan and the independenct Cachemirs, realize from time to time attempts against the shii minority of the country. In Iraq, the ISIS uses to attack the shiis that come in peregrination from the country and Iran to the annual acts of this religion in his sacred places of Samarra, Nayaf and Kherbala. And the discrepancies and, still, the offenses between both branches of the Islam, have made come again the violent conflicts in Iraq. Where, already in 1919, Arnold Wilson, the civil British administrator in Baghdad, was declaring that «the union of the mentioned ex-Turkish provinces (Baghdad, Basora and Mosul) to form a nation, was a recipe for the disaster. Because it was implying that it would bind three ethnic-religious very different groups to work together, being known well that they mutually hate”.

5) And the Delirium Tremens of their ideological action. Some of the craziest Islamic guerrillas were the Algerians in the 90s. Without not being at least studious of the Islam and with very earthly interests, they were excommunicated (of the Umma) some groups to others. The takfir or anathema stems from kfur or ungodliness. This directly relates to the religious and moral chaos or jahiliyya, previous to the Islam in Arabia. For it, is declared impious someone who is or tries to be a Muslim. And is exiled, at least morally, of the Umma.

6) They have a great operational decentralization. They obtain this partly by the universality of the Umma. That comes out and overcomes the idea of nation or race. And gives them the «assabiya» or personal identity and groupal belonging, by means of a totalizator religion. But that also prevents them from obtaining strategic consistent aims. Though his punctual actions are important, odious, painful, fearsome. And they are so by the brutality, the abandonment, the mutilation and the blood effusion that their victims suffer. That assume and are afraid for all the persons that feel threatened (the impact is subjective). And not by the scantiest probability that exists of suffering them. This is pure terrorism for its intentions, means and implications.

His irregular effective and transcendent action might begin with mobile actions of general harassment in the enemy rear, using the bands sufficiently establised in a territory. Seeking for the wear and demoralization of the enemy forces, his whole dispersion looking for protection and to paralyze them in the more or less static defense of the threatened territory.

7) The strategic communications of the bands are precarious or absent, insufficient, careless and vulnerable within the jihadists groups. And everything is due to his constitution in spread, confused and diffuse networks, that characterizes them. And it is not a question of the messages or alerts, that always can be sent and received, with only tactical transcendency. And it is not a consequence of the alternation of the deployments and concentrations in the military actions.

Those communications are: With the bases, for his rest, refuge, reorganization, indoctrination, information, logistic support and the indispensable protection against the sterile and exhausting «wandering». With the related or associate bands, for the general support, the information and his operational concentration for the different tasks. With the people, for his rest, temporary refuge, support and different means, information and the ideological religious action, to facilitate the later necessary territorial and human extension.

8) One of his strategic aims is to strike any government, of any origin and society, so as which the «possible aims» are attainable to them. Since the expansionist and aggressive Caliphate of dar el-Islam of the beginnings of the sunni Caliphate, does not exist today and they can not integrate in it for its “defense”.

9) They have a deep-rooted, sharpened and consistent zeal to do advertising of his successful actions. With that the West collaborates insensitively and liking of extending and defending the free information. Achieving with all this the magnificence and exaltation of a painful and unconnected results. That offer to them a social and religious protagonism very superior to the operational transcendency of them. This is not any more than the extension of the terror and his political and ideological consequences. By means of the «waves of commotion» that transmit without filter our modern communications to all the peoples, specially to us the Europeans.

10) But, all the positions and the psychological and ideological attitudes are also objectives to defend and to conquer by West, in this low intensity warfare for the expanse of a radical, out-of-date, exclusive and imposed dominion.

Than all this can be got is demonstrated by the actual precariousness and going back of the ISSI.

Keeping a similar strategy in Syria and Iraq by the ISSI for the creation of his radical salifist independent caliphate has several important mistakes. One is to simultaneously fight in two countries with different strategic approaching. Other is to divide their meagres really trained operational forces in two fronts. In Syria, the valid strategic for the heterogeneous, multiple and divided opposition to al-Assad, is to support, at least, the unit in the military strategy. This way, all the military efforts could converge in different, simultaneous or successive, objectives, that decides a military high command, respected by all the present and active groups in Syria. Already we have seen how al-Assad amounts means and efforts to his cause. These are the trained “militias” of Hezbola; the Brigades al-Quds (Jerusalem) of the Republican Guard (Pasdaran) of Iran, under the command of the general Qassem Suleimani; the Russian Naval and Air Forces and her ground units of defense the installations; armament, equipments and ammunitions reinstatement; political diplomatic support from Iraq, Iran and Russia. This is allowing him to beat in diverse combats the opposition groups and to expel them from positions that were occupying, some during enough time. Not observance of this strategy, of pure survival, would lead the opposition to his progressive destruction by the SNA.

The «solitary wolves» and the freedom of unlimited expression in West.

The solitary wolves suicidal terrorists arise for the conjunction of several deficiencies, miseries and human ideologies. Almost all they are young persons full of idealism (sacrifice for his familiar and social group and searching of a promising future) and of vital interests, which are in full boiling of fulfillments. His social and cultural situation is usually deficient and vague. They suffer a real and/or praised by the imagination marginalization. Almost all of us, position to it, can use a heap of insufficiencies or personal and collective, psychological and material, not solve lacks. And, since the others do not solve us, to say that we are excluded from the society, is a cozy flight from the reality. And an intimate and real doubting of our own capacities (this, they will never accept it), to blame the others for our misfortunes.

In addition, the search for the lacks would always lead us to be bogged down in yearning and obtaining the omnipresent and inextinguishable «desires». And this «negative search» can prevent us from to do the utmost in going out forward, having attainable and progressive goals, to interiorly and externally develop as persons and to estimate the “neighbors” with loyalty and confidence. With what we will overcome those «lacks», with the orientation, the intention and the effort that we give to our ideas and accomplishments.

In that germinal and manure land can easily sow the slanted ideas of a religious attainable, vindictive interpretation, that offers a purpose and a Mission in the life. And that rewards his «mujahidins» fallen in combat, specially the martyrs or witnesses, with a sensitive, clear, sure, showy (this quality of pure vanity is very attractive) and comfortable (it is not necessary to dedicate to it a life of effort, selflessness and renunciation) prize. The jihadists organizations usually facilitate substantial prizes to the families of his «martyrs». With what these also have insured the relative well-being of their most direct family in enough time. The result is that the «losers», «rooted out», «offended», «without empathy towards the neighbor», do not find it hard to take the decision to turn into a martyr of the Jihad. And the case is that the spreading, the explanation and the impregnation, which Lorenz would say, of those poisonous and addictive ideas, are realized with the major facility in our modern societies.

(TO BE CONTINUED)

THE IDEOLOGIC AND STRATEGIC PREFERENCES OF THE JIHADISTS.

The radical fundamentalist Islamic insurgents or jihadistas devoted themselves between the 60s and 80s to attack those that they were qualifying as corrupt and false or socialist or westernized and liberal «Moslem governments». Their fortune was small for all their commited effort. On one hand, the retreat of the Soviets of Afghanistan. But, possessing the logistic western support and the indispensable military action of pashtuns groups and other Afghans etnias, commanded by the regional «lords of the war». That is to say, the out-standing and charismatic maliks of the clans and regional tribes. Between them the most famous was Ahmad Sah Masud, the Lion of the valley of the Panjshir. And, for other one, they got the capture of the power in Sudan, inspired by al-Turabi, a «spider captain», having managed to get strong in its Army. This is still the only case in the sunni world. The propaganda was not appearing between his priorities and the informative fingerprint that they left in the western world was wretched. Few found out that they existed and of those are more less who remember their wanderings of then. From the 90, the jihadist aim turns against the unfaithful West. Considering the Great Satan personified in the United States of North America and his democratic western coreligionists, as the first agitators and corrupters of the Islamic peoples.

The Jihad allowed the rapid spread of the Islam.

The Jihad, expressed in the precise concept that we all understand, is not gathered in the Koran. Nevertheless, though there appear in the Koran approximately 8 «pacifists» verses, exist near 100 aleyas or verses which encourages the Muslims to the defense of the community or Umma, to the fight against the unfaithful people and to the armed spread of the Islam. Established the main lines, rapidly the political chiefs of the Umma, including the Prophet, threw hand of the instrument that so clearly was offering them and that they needed in a “struggle of life or death”.

At the beginning of the Islam, when was reigning the “jahiliyya” (definition of the barbarism previous to it) in the Arabs, the Jihad was indispensable and inevitable for the defense of the new religion. That was arising in the middle of a “stormy sea” of pagan and idolatrous and more or less nomadic tribes and clans, which were populating Arabia. It had not even begun the first expansion of the Islam to the whole Arabic world, and the Muslims groups could be easily eliminated by their enemies. And any radical change, even only new, finds always an initial rejection. Which originates in the conservative «ideological and tradition inertia», which always exists in the society where it appears.

Three were the reasons that stimulated the Arabic tribes to starting a way of conquest of the wide and distant peoples and lands, strangers to the Arabic Peninsula. The first one was the religious reason. As in any religious primitive community, the Umma was the center of the Allah’s mandates and benedictions. And so, being lived collectivly and keenly, the fulfillment of a monotheistic and simple doctrine. This religion was demanding, in addition, an active and coercive, constant and expansive proselytism, directed to the unfaithful persons and the frontier hostiles. The obligation of the Jihad was similar to other “five basic rules or pillars of the Islam”. The Koran given to Mohammed in the birth of the Islam, has numerous verses or aleyas that demand the armed fight to the faithfuls ones.

In the side of the mundane interests, the extension of the Arabic conquests, in his uncontrollable advance during more than one century, brought the control over the goods and households of the new and numerous subjects and the political and military power on them. The Moslem domain was established by the presence of a governor with his military garrison, in every conquered important city or region. The relation of the new subjects with the Islamic regime was establishing and regulating by the payment to the governor of the periodic taxes. Owed to the imposed subjection and for practising, by the moment, a different religion. This flow of important and constant money began to come to the conquerors, who established diverse intelligent enough mechanisms for his distribution. The third reason, attainable to the nobles, chiefs and more out-standing Muslims, was the distribution of the quotas of power.That were generating the domain, the defense and the governance of the new territories of al-Islam. That are the lands of the domain of the Islam, the lands given by Allah to his faithfuls, the lands that they must keep or recover, if they are temporarily snatched. This way, the emirs, sheikhs and caids were proliferating, occupying and shaping the political Arabic structure of the islamized territories.

The Arabic original tribes of the Islam were receiving a part of the taxes and of the plunders of the conquest, though they were not taking part in any military expeditions. Another part was given to the participants in the Jihad against some bordering people or region with the caliphate. An important part belonged to the authorities of the Umma, centred on the caliphate of Damascus or of Baghdad, and regionally represented by his emirs or caides, to support the expenses of the governing and the maintenance of the theocratic State. From the later was stemming a part destined to pay, equip and forming up the new Jihads, towards the frontier territories of dar al-Islam, that were appearing. Finally, there was the Zakat or the canonical alms, given to the ulemas and muftis. That had as purpose to solve and compensate the Muslims for the punishment and the randoms of the life, with the contribution of their community. And that was distributed to the poor, the disabled and the patients, the orphans and the widows of the Umma. This was closing the process of distribution of the wealth and the power. That was mundanely welding and assuring the religious aspirations of the believers of the new faith.

Strategic contradictions of the jihadists in the irregular war.

The principal characteristics of the irregular war are his prolongation in time, consequence of his low military intensity, and that is civil and political. What imply a great social tear and inevitable acts of great cruelty. By the «ascent to the extremes» of the war, which Clausewitz was saying, without the safeguards of the laws and accepted customs, that get lost in this «born within itself chaos».

To reach the power or his strategic aims, the guerrilla has three aims in his total strategy: the military annihilation of the enemy, who can be simply appearing his disability to solve the problem of the bands in an acceptable time for the popular enemy rear; the destruction of the military and economic infrastructure that supports it and the capture of the people or of his religious, ethnic and/or social base to his ideas. In this dialectics of wills, ideologies and efforts the strategic aspects of the irregular bands of any ideology are three: the guerrilla bases, his forces correlation with the regular enemy and the communications in general.

The deficiencies and miseries of the jihadists, in relation with the strategy and the operative strategy are:

1) The jihadists have failed in actively and firmly joining to a social large group, which gives cover and permanent impulse to their «imperialistic social religious movement». The most mentally ill activists are slowly isolating themselves (at least, emotional and ideologically) of the society in which «they live». And they do it in altars of his violent methods, to which they sacrifice everything for obtaining the efficiency in the action. They continue to be prepared a process of segregation, purification (in his unexpected not orthodox rites fast, use water from sacred places and green, yellow or black banderoles with inscriptions of the aleyas that favor them), consecration and radicalization. This «catechizing of the violence» allows them to mentally come to the glorious and in peace death, and, even to the suicide, in the accomplishment of his punctual actions.

 2) The jihadists groups act with an unnecessary and indiscriminate brutality, which discredits them before his religion and unquestionably separates them of the pure Muslims and, still, of the normal ones. Let’s see some aleyas or verses from the Koran:

Sura (chapter), 4 aleya 33 «… Oh, believers … do not kill yourself (do not kill between you, is another description) …».

2, 10 » When it is said to them: do not commit disorders (voice that defined the crimes) in the Earth, they answer: Far from it, we introduce in it the good order (the Good)».

2, 11 «Alas!, they commit disorders, but they do not understand it».

28, 77 «As Allah makes the Good, also make you the good and do not foment the corruption (the Evil)» (murder of innocent and of peoples that receive you -the lands of dar-el-Ahd-, drunkenness, drugs, unnecessary damages of the things).

They despise and not comply with these moral aleyas, without Allah had changed them for they. Sura 2, aleya 100 «We do not abrogate any verse of this Book, nor we will make erase any one of your memory, without replacing it by other one equal or better».

LA PSICOLOGÍA DE LOS TERRORISTAS ISLAMISTAS. SEGUNDA PARTE.

(CONTINUACIÓN)

 

La evolución personal.

La primera generación de emigrantes y parte de la segunda la formaron individuos dóciles, laboriosos y sufridos. Que consiguieron el respeto de sus vecinos franceses (cada vez tenían menos) y una prosperidad relativa. Practicaban tibiamente el Islam, agobiados como estaban en los afanes de este mundo. Y por su lejanía a dar-el-Islam, las tierras de dominio político de su religión. Ellos deseaban y procuraron para sus descendientes, un futuro sin tantas dificultades y penurias como tenían sus vidas.

Pero los descendientes recibieron lo peor de las dos civilizaciones separadas, para formar su “identidad personal”. Por una parte, recibieron “de nacimiento” la pertenencia a una cultura minoritaria y poco conocida en el país, el Islam. Con lo que su “exhibición” entre sus vecinos diferentes, no era atractiva, ni honrosa. Lo cual era una fuente de frustración, resquemor y venganza (relativos) personal y colectiva.

De la cultura anfitriona, esencialmente europea y occidental, recibieron una cultura laica, cuando no era laicista. Que minusvaloraba la religión y pretendía que se practicase privadamente. Cuando todas las religiones, y más el Islam, tienen un componente social principal. Encerrada en las mezquitas, panteones y sacristías, las religiones se sofocan y mueren. Tampoco los educaron en las virtudes de la civilización occidental: Valoración de los distintos deberes a cumplir, como contrapartida necesaria, vital y social de los varios derechos a recibir. Aprecio de la sobriedad, el esfuerzo, el ahorro, el compromiso, la demora de la recompensa, el estudio o la formación, la posible frustración y el trabajo, como factores y parámetros necesarios para la consecución progresiva y justa de los objetivos personales y colectivos humanos. En definitiva, formarlos en la afabilidad, la comunicación social y la resilencia, para poder superar los sucesivos avatares de la vida.

Y una gran mayoría carecieron de creencias y virtudes sólidas, provechosas e identificativas. Que les ayudasen significativamente, desde su origen mixto, a crear su necesaria identidad personal satisfactoria y respetada.

Se podría pensar que la insuficiencia de esa “aportación social” en la formación de la identidad individual, no justifica la aparición de una conducta asocial o enfermiza en ellos. Pero no tratamos de decir eso. Estamos exponiendo diferentes facetas del fenómeno, acercando las piezas para componer ese rompecabezas psicológico, intentando formar una matriz con los distintos factores que concurren. Para expresar un “panorama multicolor”, que nos permita recoger en él los parámetros de la situación. El fallo del humus social, del sustrato primigenio del individuo amplificará sus carencias y fallos. Y no le aportará base y riqueza para la creación de su resilencia (elaboración y superación de la adversidad, saliendo experimentado y fortalecido) y de sus parámetros de referencia para su equilibrio personal y social.

Las dispersas y compartimentadas agencias de inteligencia francesas, a pesar del mando único antiterrorista, calculan que en el país hay unos 8250 potenciales muyahidines. Que se asientan principalmente en la zona de París, la Provenza, los Alpes y la Costa Azul (centrados en Marsella y Niza). Pero, dada la masa de creyentes existentes, calculo que su número no bajaría de las 20 a 25 mil personas. Es de señalar que en un grupo social, los individuos capaces de actuar violentamente, sin que les afecte en su eficacia una emoción turbadora, son menos del 4%. Y esto no quiere decir que todos los así “dotados” vayan a ejercer en su vida la violencia contra su prójimo. En el colectivo musulmán francés serían más de 150 mil personas, de las que un 30-40% tendrían la edad idónea para realizar esa actividad.

El Islam militante, de ideología salafista yihadista, les ofrece a estos “desorientados” sociales una salida, una identidad musulmana, la incorporación a una religión simple, practicada en comunidad (la Umma). Y les da una misión y un propósito: la Yihad. Y los hace “grandones”, pero sólo ante ellos mismos, que se lo creen. A cambio del suicidio o la prisión, les ofrece la deseada identidad. La que nunca elaboraron bien. La identidad que no hemos sabido ayudar a darles, siendo partes de nuestras naciones centenarias.

La conversión en “atacante” suicida o no, se manifiesta y confirma cuando el individuo busca su separación de los “infieles” y su ideario se focaliza en las ramas radicales del Islam y en la Yihad. Algunos especialistas se asombran de que la transustanciación de la persona en un energúmeno se realice rápidamente. Sin necesidad de que sus conmilitones colaboren en el proceso, ni de que éste sea largo en el tiempo. Recordemos los famosos casos de “lavado de cerebro” contra religiosos y disidentes políticos. Pero, la mutación en “violento vesánico” del joven musulmán afgano de 17 años, refugiado en Alemania y acogido por una familia de Würzburg, una pequeña ciudad de Baviera, fue cuasi instantánea. El joven recibió la noticia de la muerte violenta de un amigo en Afganistán. Y reaccionó armándose con un hacha y un cuchillo y atacando a los pasajeros de un tren regional en las proximidades de su ciudad, el lunes 18 de julio pasado. Resultaron tres heridos graves y uno leve y el agresor fue abatido. Lo que es cierto es que ese joven ya había forjado su destino potencial, por su labilidad mental, la carencia de virtudes sociales, incluida la lejanía del Islam del Pueblo, y su desarraigo. Y la muerte del amigo fue sólo el “OK, adelante”. Porque la naturaleza no da saltos en el vacío.

La Degradación de la Violencia en las Sociedades.

La vulgarización de la violencia contra los demás es un fenómeno recurrente en las distintas civilizaciones y épocas. No en vano dice el adagio romano que “el hombre es un lobo para el hombre”. Dejando aparte los casos de marginados y perseguidos sociales, las sociedades desarrolladas modernas están perturbadas por una neurosis extendida. Que se concreta y produce en las neurosis personales. Esta afección no nos vuelve violentos directamente. Pero nos hace inestables y más proclives a ceder ante las tensiones externas e internas. La neurosis ataca nuestra resilencia.

Y una vía de escape ante esas “encerronas psicológicas” que padecemos, es la violencia ejercida contra los que consideramos culpables de nuestros “males” percibidos, que a veces es toda una vecindad. Y la gama de posibles actos violentas tiene una extensa gradación. Pero, esos “cofres de angustia” sufridos, se resuelven superándolos, no manteniendo un ciclo de acción y reacción.

El carácter depravado y siniestro del terrorismo islamista.

Este fenómeno tiene unos resultados específicos de muerte, desolación y desamparo. Distintos totalmente, en amplitud y potencia, con los que puede producir un asesino en serie. Y que se extienden, desde el “foco de acción” terrorista, formando ondas de conmoción concéntricas, por toda la sociedad atacada. No se trata solamente de los delirios asesinos de unos descarriados iluminados. No es cosa de los fallos de la sociedad multicultural en integrarse en una nación de razas, que estén hermanadas en las virtudes nacionales de la democracia y la libertad. Ni los producen “per se” los “ataques exteriores” que fomentan y reclaman los yihadistas, cuando comprenden que su estructura socio política es la de un califado acosado, fallido (y encanallado).

Ésta es una manifestación concreta y clara del “mysterium iniquitatis” en la Historia. Que, como tal, no suele presentarse. Ya que su repugnante naturaleza puede, en esos casos singulares, ser captada y comprendida por muchas personas. No es la tentación de un “bien temporal ilusorio” para los yihadistas. Es la aparición sin velos del Mal.

Algunas Soluciones en el tiempo.

La lucha contra los terroristas islamistas tiene distintos campos de actividad. Porque su manifestación es múltiple y sinérgica. Y así de integrada y eficaz deben ser las variadas respuestas.

La destrucción de las “bases” islamistas.

Sus “bases” son las localizaciones geográficas controladas indefinidamente por los yihadistas salafistas. Ellos se apoyan físicamente en las bases para reformar, consolidar, entrenar y aumentar sus fuerzas. Desde ellas, actuando como su principal “base de partida”, lanzan incursiones y sus ataques con objetivo limitado sobre su enemigo, buscando hostigarlo o expulsarlo del territorio inmediato que ocupa. La creación de esos núcleos permanentes yihadistas depende de la medida en que sea derrotado y expulsado de ellos, con consistencia y duración, el enemigo militar. Desde las bases se lleva a cabo la captación de simpatizantes y militantes del grupo revolucionario, que no se efectúa apenas entre los pobladores, sino que, en su mayor parte, vienen ya motivados y decididos desde fuera. Y esto es así aunque una parte de su esfuerzo en el área de acción y propaganda se realice produciendo vídeos, entrevistas, gacetas y papeles por medios audiovisuales inalámbricos variados: la edición, la producción y la emisión se localiza en sus bases. En las bases, la acción socio política salafista es tan intensa o más que la formación y el entrenamiento militar de los “muyaidines de Allah”. Ella es necesaria para establecer y asegurar la motivación y la lealtad de los combatientes a la causa yihadista en el medio hostil que les rodea y acosa.

Las bases son formas socio militares con “estructura regular” de los yihadistas. Ellas presentan continuos y numerosos objetivos a la acción de los medios pesados de sus enemigos, la aviación y la artillería. Unos son “blancos de oportunidad”, como los movimientos de todas clases de los terroristas y el descubrimiento de nuevas posiciones, y otros son blancos “duros”, conocidos o explorables: infraestructuras viarias, almacenes, refugios, centros de reunión o de mando y de comunicaciones, posiciones de combate, de fuego de apoyo y de defensa contra aeronaves, observatorios, transporte de bienes, destiladoras de petróleo crudo, etc.

Y esas bases yihadistas son el único blanco sustancial, quieto y definido que ofrecen las bandas terroristas. Donde hacerles sentir toda la superior y disponible potencia del fuego militar; donde se les puede aislar por sectores, para batirles por partes, sin que éstas puedan colaborar en el plan de defensa decidido, ni huir, si el cerco del poblado es firme. Y donde podrían actuar, con otro espíritu y otras motivaciones que no brindan los entrenamientos, las milicias de peshmergas, chiíes y sunníes y los ejércitos nacionales de Irak, Libia, Nigeria, Siria y Somalia.

El fracaso doctrinal de los terroristas yihadistas.

Los grupos yihadistas salafistas han fracasado en incorporarse activa y firmemente a un grupo social amplio, que dé cobertura e impulso permanente a su “movimiento socio religioso imperialista”. Su “catequesis de la violencia” les permite a ellos prepararse anímicamente para la muerte gloriosa y en paz, e, incluso para al suicidio, en la realización de sus acciones militares. Pero esa prédica vesánica no es un arma para la conversión de grupos sociales. Y hay una razón fundamental para ello: su “credo” radical carece de posibilidades de aceptación, triunfo y permanencia entre las masas, fuera de las necesidades en los avatares temporales de una guerra. Los grupos yihadistas actúan con una brutalidad innecesaria e indiscriminada, que los descalifica ante el Islam, el Corán y la Sunna o tradición islámica, recogida en los hadices o “comentarios y hechos” escritos de Mahoma. Esta falta de legitimidad religiosa, provoca la ausencia de ulemas y muftíes venerables, respetados y piadosos a su lado. Su supuesta “ideología islámica original” se basa en unos pocos versículos favorables del Corán (éste tiene unos 4.200) y en algunos hechos históricos favorables y no en la integridad y la intención del mensaje del Islam. Este alejamiento socio emocional de las masas locales hace indefectiblemente que el apoyo de los vecinos a los grupos terroristas sea involuntario, no atractivo, siempre interesado y desmotivado.

La localización de potenciales yihadistas en las tierras de dar-el-Amn.

Existen problemas en la localización y neutralización de los musulmanes residentes en nuestras países durante su proceso de radicalización violenta. Podemos identificar a potenciales yihadistas con cierta seguridad y tras un trabajo especializado y metódico. Pero no podemos detenerlos mientras no delincan: intentar armarse y entrenarse; conspirar con otros en sus actuaciones; crear estructuras de bandas para delinquir; propagar la exaltación y el uso de la violencia como arma ideológica; reclutamiento de militantes para su radicalización ideológica y armada; recolectar fondos para las organizaciones con ánimo de delinquir; colaborar en los movimientos de militantes y posibles militantes en sus viajes hacia la Yihad interior (países del Suroeste de Asia) o la exterior (países enemigos occidentales: los “cruzados”).

En cuanto a las labores de inteligencia, existe una gran dificultad en la penetración de las redes islamistas por agentes propios o colaboradores. En general, los muyahidines, los simpatizantes y colaboradores: suelen hablar árabe; no son de razas europeas, ni hispanoamericanas; los civiles musulmanes no colaboran en las tareas de espionaje y exploración contra las organizaciones armadas islamistas.

La redención de los yihadistas y de los individuos activistas y frustrados.

Cuando el individuo ha dado el paso psicológico y volitiva (la “decisión”): ya ha roto los suficientes lazos con su entorno vital, incluso el familiar; y su mente está engolfada y dirigida a su nueva “situación” y a la identidad ofrecida y asumida. Así, es casi irrecuperable para él, para su familia, para la sociedad.

Si el individuo es uno más de los “desorientados”, confusos emocionalmente y no integrados; que están asediados anímicamente por los resquemores producidos por los “agravios” sufridos o creídos como tales: es posible recobrarlo, es relativamente sencillo hacerlo y es enormemente laborioso conseguirlo.

El enorme trabajo necesario, prolongado en el tiempo, hace que no se pueda rehabilitar a todos. Es necesario luchar contra las desigualdades que hemos citado. El buscarles trabajos temporales es más rápido. El darles educación y una formación laboral es más lento. Pero es imprescindible a medio y largo plazo. Apartarles de los “suburbios podridos” y de la nefasta influencia de ambiente, amigos y familiares es muy complicado y largo. Porque de los “trozos” sacados de ellos, han creado la pobre y única identidad que tienen. Que les lleva al fallo personal y social y a la frustración.

La Comunidad integrada en sus miembros cabales.

Y ahora viene el resultado de que se integran en la nación. Hoy en día etnia no es sinónimo de nación. Muchas naciones de la Tierra son realmente “crisoles de razas”. Lo son los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, las naciones hispanoamericanas, las grandes naciones africanas… Donde conviven en suficiente paz y armonía etnias y culturas diferentes. Que estén conformadas por creencias no excluyentes y virtudes y valores nacionales.

Una nación es una sociedad de individuos, dotada de una auto conciencia socio política. Colaboran a crearla y vertebrarla la historia, la tradición y las costumbres, y la lengua y el sentido moral propios. Y contribuyen en segundo lugar a ello las etnias y el territorio propios, que no siempre existen, especialmente las primeras. Así, el territorio de un país no es una nación. Ni lo es la población inarticulada de un territorio, bajo un único gobierno.

Cuando la nación es amada por sus componentes y existe en ellos el deseo de servirla y defenderla en comunidad, aparece el concepto de la patria. Ésa es la patria que amamos y defendemos. Ambas ideas están interrelacionadas esencialmente. Y, la ausencia del patriotismo o la vergüenza de profesarlo por miembros de una “comunidad socio política”, lleva a la indefensión y a la desmembración de su nación, en mayor o menor grado, formando “grupos de individuos asociados”.

Así, no es de extrañar que sean las Fuerzas de Defensa de una nación, como instituciones y en sus miembros, las que enarbolen, enseñen y profesen el patriotismo como una de sus virtudes esenciales. Las Fuerzas de Defensa de una nación son el conjunto especializado de los “nacionales o patriotas” para la Defensa beligerante y cabal de su “nación patria”.

FINAL.

 

LA PSICOLOGÍA DE LOS TERRORISTAS ISLAMISTAS.

Introducción e Índice temático.

La civilización y sus estructuras vital y social en sus interacciones con los individuos y su psicología.

El fallo de los yihadistas en integrarse en un «grupo con creencias y virtudes (los valores permanentes) compartidos». Que le den identidad, sentido y pertenencia a sus vidas.

¿Por qué se comportan así? ¿Cómo tratar a los recuperables? ¿Cómo combatir a los vitandos o recalcitrantes?

Antecedentes.

Estas “piezas” nuestras rescatan y actualizan un personaje siniestro que padecieron hace muchas décadas los aventureros, colonizadores y autoridades europeas en los países del Islam. Era cuando “el flujo y el reflujo” de las corrientes de la Historia entre la civilización europea y la islámica, fronterizas desde el siglo VIII, fue favorable a Occidente. Y distintos países del Oeste, Francia, Gran Bretaña, Rusia e incluso los EE. UU. (cuando a partir de 1898, tras la guerra con España y su ocupación del archipiélago de las Filipinas, se encontraron con los “moros”), dieron el salto geográfico, a veces incluso allende los mares. Y penetraron y se asentaron con más o menos oportunidad y derecho (aparte del “más fuerte”, vigente hasta finales de la Edad Moderna) en muchos países del Islam. Fue la era del imperialismo.

El “juramentado” era generalmente un hombre fornido y poco reflexivo. Que contaba entre sus parámetros mentales a las creecias islámicas básicas: los 5 “pilares del Islam”, a los que se añadía la Yihad contra el infiel o el kfar o apóstata. Estos hombres simples, fuertes y moldeables eran adoctrinados por el imán de la aldea o población y sus acólitos y por sus compañeros. Que los convencían que estaban destinado por al-Allah al Paraíso, “por seguir el sendero de Allah”, que para ellos era hacer la guerra al “extranjero infiel” y a los “apóstatas locales”, que colaboraban con él en la gobernanza del país. Este hombre o un pequeño grupo de ellos era lanzado literalmente contra el objetivo designado: autoridades civiles o militares, una reunión de civiles o militares en un cuartelillo, en una iglesia o en la plaza o el mercado, etc.

Los juramentados, que tomaban su denominación vulgar, del último rito que realizaban antes de marchar a “su” combate, eran luchadores de un solo uso. No era necesario instruirles en las tácticas y técnicas del combate de infantería. No se esperaba que volviesen de su misión. Sólo debían dominar el uso de la cimitarra, alfanje o yagatán, común en su zona. Aparte de sus convicciones tan firmes como escasas, los juramentados eran drogados para aumentar su resistencia física y para poder asesinar con eficacia. Era común que recibiesen varios impactos de bala o heridas de armas blancas, antes de perder los ánimos, aflojarse y caer. Sólo la bayoneta bien clavada en pleno dorso, pecho, diafragma o abdomen, y las balas de gran calibre o expansivas tipo “dum dum”, por su “stopping power” o poder de detención y dirigidas al sistema nervioso, encéfalo, espina dorsal, conseguían despachar para el Jardín de las Huríes al juramentado herido.

También existieron formas elaboradas e institucionalizadas de los suicidas asesinos en nombre de Allah. A fines del siglo XI, Hassan-i-Sabbah fundó entre los ismaelitas chiítas y en el noreste de Persia, la secta de los “asesinos”. Estos buscaban matar en secreto a sus enemigos. Esta muerte con alevosía que realizaban, dió el nombre de “asesinos” a todos los que la practicasen en el futuro. Aunque el asesinato es realmente la muerte del inocente. Los “asesinos· actuaron en Persia, Mesopotamia y Siria y la montaña de Alamut fue su primer centro y refugio seguro. Hicieron un amplio uso del hachís para animarse en sus acciones. Desaparecieron en 1256, cuando los mongoles invaden Persia y fueron metódica y aisladamente destruyendo los distintos reductos montañosos donde se refugiaban los “asesinos”. La fortaleza de Alamut, su central operativa, que fue rendida sin resistencia por los “asesinos”, fue destruida hasta los cimientos, para que no pudiese ser usada de nuevo.

Concepto y estructura de las motivaciones externas (ambiente y grupo social) de la conducta. La identidad de los individuos.

El Origen y el Significado Sociocultural de las Civilizaciones.

La civilización es literalmente el arte de vivir en los grandes poblados o cívitas. Que eran originalmente los primeros poblados o asentamientos humanos. Donde el hombre primero se asentó y dejó de vagar como necesidad imperiosa y vital. Y pudo llegar a generar “beneficios sobrantes”, en forma de cereales, ganados y todos sus derivados. Que servirían como reservas y para el comercio con sus vecinos. Y que le brindaban seguridad, comodidad y supervivencia. Esto le permitió empezar a comportarse socialmente como persona. Estableciendo lazos firmes y extensos con sus semejantes cercanos, los allegados más allá de sus familias, su prójimo vital.

El resultado de toda esta actividad social fueron las primeras civilizaciones locales, estrechas, vulnerables y balbuceantes. Que comprendían: el desarrollo de los derechos y los deberes de los hombres como individuos y con sus colectividades; la aritmética, para medir y contratar las producciones y sus repartos; el lenguaje y su escritura, para comunicarse entre sí y con los poblados cercanos, dejando registro, al menos, de lo considerado importante, etc. Los inventos civilizadores, como los ladrillos, los regadíos, los abonos orgánicos, el arado, la escritura, etc., surgen en estas localizaciones humanas. Y no hubiesen sido necesarios, ni posibles, sin los poblados estables. Surgen en cuanto su desarrollo alcanza un “nivel de iniciación”, necesario para que broten y florezca la civilización. Nivel que supone e implica una perspectiva de futuro y de progreso relativos, la necesidad de vencer los obstáculos naturales a ellos, una coherencia social interna suficiente y la ausencia temporal de enemigos externos, demasiado poderosos, rapaces y excluyentes.

Las civilizaciones poseen un carácter bivalente, necesario y complementario en sus relaciones sociales globales. Esta doble cualidad es centrífuga, expansiva y dominadora hacia su exterior. Dentro de sus fronteras la civilización es centrípeta, emprendedora y desarrolladora. En ambos casos, es creadora, innovadora y civilizadora o transmisora de sus creencias y valores compartidos. Por eso destacan en ambas actividades diferentes y opuestas, pero no antagónicas. El equilibrio entre ambas tendencias, que canalizan sus mejores esfuerzos y medios, es imprescindible para su desarrollo e impulso continuos, protegidos y beneficiosos. Las civilizaciones meramente avasalladoras y expoliadoras, que caducan como todas, no dejan huellas permanentes y fructíferas a su paso por los países conquistados.

Las civilizaciones que consiguen conjugar ambas pulsiones vitales, sus diástoles y sus sístoles eferentes e impulsoras, consiguen perdurar más en el tiempo. Pero también impregnan de su estilo, su lengua y su cultura a los territorios sojuzgados sucesivamente. Con ello transmiten su esencia a la posteridad, mucho después de su decadencia, a través de los pueblos civilizados con su cultura, sus leyes y su idioma y sus trayectorias históricas. Ahí tenemos el caso de Roma, rapaz e imperialista como cualquier otra potencia. Que sólo con los fríos y el mal tiempo recluía a sus legiones en los cuarteles de invierno. Dispuestas durante la república y el imperio a salir de conquista, represión de las revueltas o aseguramiento de sus fronteras, en sus campañas militares anuales, en cuanto el buen tiempo lo permitiese. Pero que fue capaz también de transmitir su cultura, sus leyes, llegadas hasta hoy como el Derecho Romano, su latín vulgar y su sistema administrativo, a todas las regiones “extra Italia” que poco a poco se incorporaban a su imperio o “res publica”. Esta impregnación cultural, que diría Lorenz, fue sancionada, integrada y consagrada con la generosa, oportuna y prudente concesión de su ciudadanía a muchas de aquellas ciudades y regiones. El “ius civitatis” se otorgaba por conquista, dependiendo del grado de anexión, lealtad y asimilación de los pueblos sometidos. Cuando se convertían en provincias romanas, se les concedían los mismos derechos que a la metrópoli. Fue el caso de Hispania. Pero hasta que no alcanzaban ese honor y cualidad, los pueblos dominados tenían que pagar su tributo de conquista (ius belli) y carecían de muchos derechos. Palestina, por ejemplo, no llegó nunca a tener la condición de provincia.

Mecanismo socio ideológico del flujo y reflujo del devenir de las Civilizaciones.

En las sucesivas crecientes y resacas entre las civilizaciones occidentales y musulmanas, sólo una vez coincidieron los períodos de pujante civilización de ambas. Que ocurrieron: en los aproximadamente 125 años, entre las mitades de los siglos XV y XVI. Esta exuberancia doble en civilizaciones enfrentadas se plasmó en un largo período de invasiones, reconquistas, hostigamientos y enfrentamientos abiertos en Europa, el norte de África y todo el Mediterráneo.

Los hechos observables que definen la decadencia temporal de una civilización cuajada son: la energía vital nacional, que alimenta la “moral nacional” y una sana “voluntad de defensa”, se disipa; las artes y las letras se vuelven formalistas y estériles; los emplazamientos, colonias o socios periféricos se abandonan y la política exterior se vuelve cobarde, balbuceante y precavida. Este retroceso de una civilización crea un vacío existencial, que atrae y da impulso externamente a la otra. Formando un vaivén natural y cósmico, porque la Naturaleza reniega y huye de los “vacíos”.

Las rutas comerciales, los contactos habituales entre ambas civilizaciones son sus auténticas líneas de aprovisionamientos y comunicaciones exteriores. Y, cuando estas arterias son descuidadas en la periferia de la zona de influencia de una civilización, los expertos civiles, religiosos y militares de la otra acuden a repararla, ocuparla y vitalizarla. La “aspiración” absorbente, creada por la decadencia de la otra, creada por su “vacío” vital, atrae una corriente ajena de ideas, métodos, palabras, inventos y estilos. Aparecen primero en la zona debilitada y permeable ajena, los viajeros, agentes comerciales y secretos, representaciones culturales, misioneros, profesores y diplomáticos de la civilización pujante. Así, muchas veces la actuación militar no busca más que la confirmación política de una superioridad existente y manifiesta. Que emerge y aflora irresistible desde muchos campos de la actividad humana. Y las ganancias territoriales se consolidan con la llegada de los funcionarios y administradores y las profesiones de crecimiento y desarrollo, arquitectos, ingenieros, agrimensores, artistas y un enjambre de buscavidas, arribistas y aventureros. De este flujo humano, especialmente de los últimos citados, porque su futuro inmediato es una página por escribir, surgen siempre personajes decisivos para la nueva implantación.

Se podría pensar entonces que la sociedad y su civilización estabilizadas serían el culmen y el desideratum en su desarrollo. Ya que así serían seguras, beneficiosas y atractivas. Pues, no. Para una civilización, la penuria de desarrollo es un signo ya de decadencia. Si no fluye, se adapta, emprende y avanza, se irá estancando, perdiendo la vitalidad y pudriendo. Esto ocurre en períodos medidos en muchos años, que escapan a la percepción del hombre efímero. Y sería tal como le ocurriría a una corriente fresca de agua, cuyo discurrir quedase represado.

La Interacción entre los Individuos y su Sociedad.

La identidad de un hombre es su “tarjeta natural” de distinción y de afirmación personales. Y ésta se refiere siempre a una comparación en esencia y en accidentes con “algo” similar. Es decir, el hombre es y se siente y se distingue, como tal y en plenitud, en un “conjunto” social. Al que pertenece y que le acepta como miembro y partícipe plenos.

La persona consuma su identidad en su “grupo” social. Y existen unos “lazos o nexos”, que traban, integran, nutren y mantienen funcionando la “unión” social sana, activa y resistente. Y éstos son siempre los mutuos derechos y deberes de ambas “partes personal y colectiva”.

Que deben ser respetados y recíprocos, en equilibrio y paridad de uso y derecho, cumplidos y defendidos por el individuo y su grupo existencial.

Las experiencias como factores configuradores y actualizadores de los individuos.

Cuando un grupo social se asienta en el territorio de otro, se produce inevitablemente una interacción socio cultural entre ellos. Cuyos resultados serán función de sus características socioculturales y de la dialéctica que se plantee entre ambos actores. Así, por ejemplo, tenemos el caso más antiguo de las invasiones violentas. Impuestas por un grupo sobre su “anfitrión”, empleando una dialéctica de confrontación por las armas.

En el año 376 d.C., los godos cruzaron los “limes” del este del Imperio romano y se refugiaron en sus territorios orientales. Venían empujados por unos guerreros aún más fieros que ellos: los jinetes de las estepas asiáticas, los nómadas de las yurgas y el arco compuesto, los hunos y tambien “otros”, algunos pueblos turcomanos del Asia central. Apenas dos años después, el 9 de agosto, los godos derrotaron a las legiones del emperador Valente, que los querían expulsar de la Tracia, territorio que abarcaba aproximadamente la Bulgaria de hoy. En Adrianópolis murieron unos 20 mil de los 30 mil infantes romanos, incluyendo a Valente. Fue la mayor derrota de Roma desde hacia 369 años. Y los godos se asentaron definitivamente en esos territorios. Apenas 98 años después, en el 476, el ejército romano de Rómulo Augústulo fue aplastado por los ostrogodos. Que establecieron su reino en Italia, el sur de la Galia y aproximadamente Yugoeslavia. Esto trajo la caída inexorable del imperio romano y la expansión de las tribus godas por sus tierras occidentales, hacia Hispania, la Galia e Italia.

Ya modernamente se producen enormes movimientos migratorios, especialmente en África, en Asia del Suroeste y hacia Europa. Que están alentados y facilitados por el desarrollo de las comunicaciones de personas y bienes y por la revolución en las inalámbricas de información. Estas migraciones no suponen en su empeño el empleo colectivo de la violencia contra los anfitriones de paso o del final. Así, tanto en Francia como en Gran Bretaña, después de la II guerra mundial y tras el proceso de descolonización de los pueblos, se produjeron inmigraciones masivas de personas procedentes de sus antiguas colonias africanas y asiáticas, que se asentaron en esos países. Y que buscaban un nivel de vida mejor que el de sus países, incluyendo una educación de primera para sus hijos, una seguridad y paz sociales y un futuro asequible de mejora y prosperidad.

En Francia están asentados más de 4,5 millones de musulmanes, especialmente de origen argelino, marroquí y tunecino. Las metrópolis europeas practicaron un “multiculturalismo asimétrico”, para aceptar en su sociedad e integrar posteriormente a sus emigrantes. Pero, los movimientos sociales no se pueden dirigir y regular con el compás y la escuadra. Los grupos sociales emigrantes se fueron estableciendo en la periferia de las ciudades de acogida. Donde la habitabilidad era más barata. Se formaban así barrios, distritos o repartos, habitados principalmente por grupos arracimados de esas culturas foráneas. Que servían para su apoyo y protección y también para su aislamiento y compartimentación. El primer ministro Valls declaró que en Francia existen más de 450 de estos “suburbios apartados” y no integrados. Usando una denominación más amplia y laxa, el país cuenta con unas 750 Zonas Urbanas Sensibles.

THE WAR AGAINST THE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS. Second Part.

(CONTINUATION)

 

Operational Characteristics of the Attacks with Elite Ground Forces.

Units and small units that attack with limited aims (a deep incursion, the temporal capture of a critical position, an ambush) constitute a military closed «system». This condition imposes specific characteristics on the “interfaces of action” with the enemy, which are sometimes different to those of great units, especially in the theme of available means and the time of action.

Attacks with limited aims have been operationally used along large fronts. Where the enemy’s defense lacked depth and enough reserves and was looking to minimize own wear and make use of the multiplier effect of the set’s efforts. This occurred with notable success when the forces of the 9th German infantry Army of General Model sought to reform and consolidate its fronts in the Sychevka’s southwest zone between January and April of 1942.

The definitive characteristic of his use, adapted in these tasks, is that is used with criterion unity, by a kept and «concentric» in the result of his impulses “operational gravity center”. So that the limited efforts do not vanish in reconnaissance in force actions, in not suitable or out of opportunity sectors. It is to say, usiing unduly.

The field of action is the secret for applying freedom of action. By extending or decreasing the field of action, or by changing the field of action on the enemy, one can keep or recover the necessary freedom of action to act favorably and not simply reacting to the enemy.

«Field of action» is any «spatial-temporary-circumstantial» situation that allows for the suitable employment of an Army’s means and capacities in accordance or as part of that army’s intention. The field of action is formed by one or several «interfaces of action«, which are the very small sectors where direct contact occurs between the small units of action of each rival. Examples are when a deployed platoon attacks an enemy section, when a tank attacks infantry heavy weapons, when a section attacks by firing on an enemy’s strong position, when an engineering section opens a path in a minefield, etc.

The task is to find an optimal way in which, through successive «periods of action» applied in «fields or interfaces of action», one can gain the relative freedom of action to act and to carry out «quantum» or elementary units of the general intention. In addition, a general action can be divided into numerous partial actions to achieve in stages, momentary or minor «periods of action»; acting this way in the same «field», divided in minor interfaces of action.

Interaction in stages and situations suitable to advance one’s military means guided by the superior intention or orders is the general mechanism for applying, recovering and maintaining freedom of action in one’s favor.

A characteristic of the freedom of action is that is interactive with the enemy in the «interface of action» and is played out in fields of action that chosen by or imposed on an army. Passiveness means that freedom of action is not taken advantage of through lack of initiative. Thus, freedom of action can also have a result opposite to its intention and this can happen regardless of the type of fight engaged in, whether it is offensive or defensive.

The units had to gain combat superiority over the enemy, since obtaining a local and temporary supremacy would allow them to achieve their aims.

Essential to the mission’s conception are intelligence and simplicity. Essential to its preparation are security and training. The characteristics of the mission in action are surprise, tempo and the commitment of all the mission participants.

Simplicity allows the force to concentrate on a few related aims, using a limited number of men and means in the military closed system. If new tactics or different technologies are used, both the simplicity of the mission’s conception and the surprise of its execution will be enhanced.

On September 12, 1943, the captain of the S. S. Otto Skorzeny carried out the rescue of the Duce from his prison in the high mountain hotel Great Sasso located in the Apennines. Gliders were used to assault the position, fighting against the difficult cold draughts (these produced a delay in the arrival, as they landed at midday) and scarce sites for landing. That such a difficult assault would be attempted, higly surprised the on duty «carabinieri». The attackers took advantage of this by gaining access to the principal building while. At the same time, an acquaintance general of the «carabinieri» friendly landed with Skorzeny. Combat supremacy was rapidly achieved.

Intelligence supposes complete, up-to-date and timely knowledge of the circumstances and characteristics of the mission. Here, with so limited employing means, intelligence is facilitated by different agencies and units that intervene with the mission, even those at the level of the state. Specially the CIA, the National Security Agency or NSA, the Central Security Service or CSS, that links with the NSA, and the FBI.

Security refers principally to the stages of planning, preparation, training and, if appropriate, stage of transport or insertion. It has active and passive aspects. Giving off misleading information and concealing the force’s real intentions up until the stage of action on the objective. Each person must only know what is necessary for his actuation.

Training must be generic for actions and tactics and specific for those actions required for the mission. Independently of this, training is necessary to achieve coordinated actions among units taking part simultaneously in some part of the mission. A general rehearsal of the mission is also necessary, including its planning duration and margins for mistakes. It is also good to include some variant that represents a mistake, an unforeseen event or a loss of combat or movement capacity. And that the men train in correcting them or, at least, in neutralizing them with his effort. For example, a part of the helicopters is knocked down or lands at major distance of the foreseen in the theoretical disembarkation zone.

The final «training area» must be similar in general characteristics to the «target area». And it must be placed at safe of detections and filtrations of information (security), which onlookers and interested persons can catch. The independent variable of «time» introduces sometimes unexpected and not always welcome effects. For example, a vehicle presents problems after a number of hours of hard use, that was not foreseen in tests of «at scale» time.

Surprise supposes attacking an enemy (even if arranged in prepared defense) at a point or flank that is neglected by him at the moment, giving the attacker a favorable «interface of action» on him. It must suppose a “tactical innovation”. Though it could also contain technical differential or new elements. Examples of such “innovations” in the past are hollow load bullets or charges and flame-throwers.

The surprise is the sufficient and necessary multiplier of the combat capacity of the «small incursion force». That will allow him to compensate the scanty military resources that it has on the area. To it joins his inconsiderate and carefully applied with rapidity employment. To provoke an overwhelming effect on the enemy, achieving the temporary local superiority. As being an «isolated military system», the incursion force of will receive neither reinforcements, nor supplies. For its part, the time is not neutral, here is an enemy: because there is not more operation time. From his depletion, the unit will confront the pursuit and his annihilation…

Speed consists in firmnessly acting, ahead of the enemy, in the successive elementary «cycles of action» that define a performance or process. It also presupposes acting with opportunities and with pace (adapted speed, relative to the enemy). Remember that an action cycle includes a phase of observation, a phase of determining the situation, the decision phase and the accomplishment phase. If one’s speed is greater than that of the enemy, his actions will be in response to situations that have already just passed.

Speed also implies rapidly reaching a situation of active supremacy in combat capacity. The enemy’s reaction speed is initially very slow as he is in a stupor, trying to verify what is happening. This means his phase of determining the situation will be lengthened. Deceptive action in these moments will lengthen the time that passes and fog the determination of the situation. Ways of doing this include utilizing some of the enemy’s uniforms, equipment or language by certain parts or subunits involved in the action. Once supremacy over the enemy is attained, it must always be kept. As scanty resources make its recovery very difficult. Once supremacy in combat capacity is reached, the probability of a mission’s success increases exponentially and the vulnerabilities of one’s forces are dramatically diminished.

The commitment of men and officers and their selection qualities, lend moral and physical courage to the actions they undertake. This is necessary to overcome uncertainty, stress, mistakes, diversions, enemy actions, and to take advantage of the always fleeting opportunities. Commitment supposes full knowledge of the mission and the full, voluntary and enthusiastic support of all participants.

Execution is carried out by establishing at the level of the regiment, battalion or company a center of gravity for the common effort, which harmonizes and consolidates the «missions» of its subunits.

THE END.

THE NATO’S RAPID REACTION FORCES.

George Bush’s strategic national doctrine established after the suicidal assaults of al-Qaeda in New York at 11 of September of 2001, that the «asymmetrical wars or of IVth generation» (irregulars and with low level of military means used) with the participation of the USA, would be supported overseas and without formal declaration of war. And that they were also necessary, to remove from the American territories and those of his allies, the threats of the “foreign fundamentalist terrorism” of any origin, religion or ideology. It justified the ill-fated post war occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. But, with a blowing up fiscal and exterior deficits and with a democratic renewed Administration, it is necessary for the USA to save in military resources.

The Strategic National Doctrine of the Americans democrats.

The new political philosophy is to dedicate now those recovered resources «to build a nation here, at home». This way, the USA lowered qualitatively the bar of the exterior terror, putting during the first mandate of president Obama, at al-Qaeda as almost the only one immediate “not national violent enemy”. This salafist internationalist terrorist «network», without own territory, with her operational chiefs known, fled and not wished as guests in any normal country, is a more attainable, adaptable and manageable target for his «rapid punctual incursion» forces and means. This new “strategic national doctrine” justifies the increase of the use of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (not driven planes for exploration and recognition and of bombardment), spy satellites, own or local agents placed in the hostile territory, assaults by elite operational units and by small expeditionary forces and of Marine’s amphibious assault, these transported in «command and transport ships» of strategic projection with his naval escort. The deployments of dozens of thousands of military men and with his luggage and equipment for several years in an operations theater, are rejected indefinitely by the new «doctrine» of the «diminishing defense».

This doctrine spreads and concerns, through the NATO, the strategic aims of his allies and the assigned and specific means to reach them. The training with IT programs is an example of the new practices in military training. Instead of moving soldiers by the Boot Camps or the vehicles in the maneuvers polygons of the mechanized or motorized units, the NATO is developing new “online artifices” to instruct their military personnel. And, though it could not be the norm of formation or training, the project is illustrative that the Alliance adapts to the new times of «financial global restrictions» for the Armies. In this scene of diminishing resources and threats still slightly valued or made concrete, the Defense Secretaries of the NATO, assembled at the end of February, 2013 in Brussels, decided to adopt some voluntary remedies. «It is a question of seeing if our nations resign their responsibilities because of the budgetary restrictions or if we demonstrate creativity and innovation and develop the necessary aptitudes to confront the threats in joint form», said Leon Panetta, American Secretary of Defense.

An Allied highly mobile «task force» for urgent missions.

The NATO will create shortly time a «sui generis» rapid reaction force (30 years ago were calling her of «rapid deployment»), that will form 13.000 cavalry and mechanized infantry soldiers, reinforced with artillery and engineers. It will be destined to be deployed in zones of conflict that are sensitive for their «global interests». Forget the Congo, Yemen, Somalia or Syria, which are not or are insufficiently interesting. This «great unit» will be formed by the Armies of the allied countries, who will incorporate into her their brigade or regiment type forces in a rotating form and for a minimal period of six months in duty tours. The experts of the Organization will design a “training plan” for them, which will last until 2020, until all the suitable units for these tasks have taken part in it.

«My call to the Allied Governments is that they stop the expenditure cuts (in Defense), that use better their resources (that already assigned) and, once the economy recovers, they begin to invest (in Defense) again. If the cuts continue, they will have a negative impact in our aptitude to provide defense and protection to our population», warned the secretary general of the NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, at the beginning of the mentioned meeting. The most drastic reduction in topics of Defense corresponds to Greece, which in 2011 diminished a 25 % his military expense, after having reduced it in 20 % in 2010. So, in 2012 his Defense’s budget was only 60 % of that of 2009. There are other four minor countries, which also have done substantial cuts in military systems, men and re equipments for the Defense: Slovenia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. Below them, though also with reductions of two digits percent, is Spain, which military expense fell 11 % in 2011, after two years of very significant reductions. In general, almost all the countries save in their Armies, included the United States, which realizes the major military expense attributed in the world (4,8% of his GDP). The Chinese items, proceeding from a collectivized and directed centralized economy, are not homogeneous or comparable to ours, because many usable chapters by the Chinese Popular Liberation Army can be included in books as expenses or investments of other Chinese departments and services. But the total falls of the resources at the level of the Alliance get damped enough, thanks to exceptions as the German, who has increased the expenses in Defense in the years of this economic world crisis.

His uses, operational limitations and abuses.

The operative employment of the rapid reaction multinational forces will be as airborne or of disembarkation «detachments», supported by the tactical aviation and the national allied warships. Their action would be over «limited goals» and placed in not extensive areas and looking for an operative projection, not only tactical. Her employment would have to be in a relatively short time, due to the limitations in her combat and logistics capacities. A joint utilization of this “division (-) of combined arms” would allow to attack only one or two hostile brigades, which were isolated from their operational rears and / or deployed in areas of difficult access («bad ongoing» ground) by land. Reciprocally, his defense capacity and «resistance» are limited. Nothing of trying to appease (they also call it «to «stabilize») something similar to a «Gaza strip». That is the wasp’s nest of an network of irregular «units» of motivated and trained terrorists. Deployed in reinforced defense positions echeloned in depth. And using an unfavorable ground (a urbanized one) for the armored and / or motorized enemies means. That would be the principal resources and capacities of combat and of movement of this » special division light » (better to use the And using an unfavorable area for the armored means (not necessarily they have to be the heaviest cars of the Allies) and / or become mobile enemies. That would be the principal resources and combat and of movement capacities this light «special division» (is better to use the English meaning, in order that he does not resemble the light infantry).

The headquarters of these multinational forces, destined to act in «located conflicts», that concern the security or the interests of the Allies, will be probably in Belgium. Some great American units, which subunits might take part in his composition by turns, are the 24ª motorized division and the Marine¡s divisions. The small elite units of the Rangers, the SEAL or the battalions and the engineers’ companies, would remain detached in tactical subordination to the brigades or regiments of the Rapid Force, realizing their specific tasks in the missions and complementing those of them. The forces of rapid reaction will be able to protect an oil installation or a port and even to help to suppress riots. But they will not be able to face an insurrection or a generalized assault against a friend country. Their detachments will be always highly vulnerable to the encircle and the harassment. Their operational possibilities only might increase qualitatively if their missions are coordinated with those of a ground army which operates in the tactical or operational surroundings.

Politically, the offensive action of the rapid reaction division forces, on having lacked rooting in the peoples of his operations zones and of continuity his military intervention, will turn out to look more brutal and arbitrary. And it will be more alike a police action than a military orthodox operation. It is sure, in addition, that the neutral or hostile governments to the West in the geostrategic regions where she acts, will reject the right that the NATO has assumed, to act as gendarmes of his “partial interests” in a zones so distant from their national territories. This way, from a hypothetical military, problematic and excessively punctual and short action, the NATO appears directly as guardians of his own «new order», in an epoch of international soft and lightened action ways. Where to use the «big stick», as convincing argument for the decision and when the politics and the diplomacy have failed in obtaining a reasonable solution, it is very frowned upon by all the delicate stomaches.

THE WAR AGAINST THE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.

The global war against the organized terrorism, proclaimed by the president Bush after September 11, 2001, has gone flat. And with it, the military strategy of attacking the many-colored islamist jihadism, always threatening, in his nests and in his infected areas. Without existed for them neither bases, nor sure refuges in the world. Seeking to suffocate this certain, threatening, watched and already long-suffering danger. And to remove it from home, from the territory of the USA. Mr. Obama qualitatively and substantially cut down in 2011, the antiterrorist aims in the exterior American politics.

The new National Strategy of the USA.

For it, the Stategic Plan establishes aims more political than military in the Islamic Central Asia. «This one has been a difficult decade for our country. (Now) we can be glad to know that the pressure of the war is yielding». Is admitted that the Americans are not capable of «leave a perfect Afghanistan». Neither the western democracy is perfect. But it is comparatively the least unjust of the political known systems. And, due regulated by the play of the public powers and the honesty of his agents, it was the one that allowed the advent of the middle, numerous, polite, laborious and progressive classes. This way, they bet for the political negotiation with the moderate Taliban, to lower the activity of the armed groups. Bringing over the possibilities of peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan. But the major premise fails. The moderate Taliban do not exist. This name is disgusting to the logic. Since it is a contradiction in the used terms. Like the «negative growth», of which some politicians speak to us. The Taliban apply rigorously the sharia. That are the civil laws and penal social derivatives of the literal and rigid application of the Koran and Sunna or tradition, in the profane matters. And they impose it by the force. And with a foreign yielding enemy, without firm convictions, with internal contradictions; why the Taliban are going to negotiate, having the victory already smelling them as the aromatic flowers of Allah’s garden?

Obama proclaims, with fiscal and exterior deficits running away, the need to save in military resources. To dedicate them «to constructing a nation here, at home». This way, he qualitatively lowers the strip of the exterior terror. Putting the Base (al-Qaeda) and the IS as the violent not national enemies of the USA. The salafista internationalist terrorists with his known, fled and not wished as guests in a normal country, operational chiefs, is a more attainable and manageable aim for the schemes, the budgets and the aspirations of the «diminishing American defense». And it stays within range of the actions: of the CIA and of the Pentagon’s flaming spies; of the not crewed airplanes (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) of reconnaissance and atack; of the military punctual actions of the elite forces of the Pentagon; of the assaults of small expeditionary forces and/or of amphibious assault of the Marines, transported in «control and/or transport warships» with his naval escort; of the penetration of the terrorist groups or, at least, the approximation, the observation and the information, by local related elements, paid by the espionage of the USA. The deployments of tens of thousands of American soldiers and their complex equipment and specific supply for several years in a theatre of operations, are indefinitely rejected by the new «doctrine». The American people infected with the adherent and complex economic crisis, with the lack of political effective control, with the costs of the wars against the terror (it speaks about 1,6 $ trillions – not thousand millions – spent till now in Iraq and Afghanistan and around $60 million per month en the deployment of Libia, without taling part in offensive actions), is tired of the exterior actions and constantly reflects it in the surveys. As in the old times, in other national crises, a country that is almost a continent, partially withdraws towards himself.

The Need of a new formal and international “Legal Setting».

The laws give juridical character and institutionalizing for what the needs, the customs and, finally, the social norms have been looking and establishing in the evolution of the societies. There does not exist in the History an example similar to the operational, legal and institutional picture that that pose the USA and the islamist violent rebels in their antagonistic armed dialectic by the whole global world. Therefore, almost all the laws of the countries where develop episodes of this war, the international laws in use and the social existing norms, lack practical meaning and aptitude to establish an operational sufficient frame for this warlike conflict. Both great conflicting rivals use more or less freely the whole world bullring, included the space, as local «fields of action» to realize all kinds of operations against his enemy, his allies and his means and properties.

The real terms of application of this violent dialectics are changed, are new or different: total internationalization of the warlike scene. Will mention some of the significant or more known: the borders and the operations strips or sectors are diluted or are not significant in these. The operations precede and mark the combats or small battles. Violent, dispersed, slightly decisive, unexpected, discontinuous in the time actions; which obtain their transcendence by accumulation, not by successive or simultaneous concatenation. There take place large movements of units or small units in very short time. Great concentrated and rapid firepower capacity used by the rivals: the explosive vehicles manage to have the demolition capacity of a “smash block bomb”. The employment of these small units, which do not constitute a «useful target», protects them from the enemy heavy support fire. The digital capacities of the wireless communications and of the treatment and custody of the information are a new weapon in the fighting field for the sensitive information. This has taken the enemy to the employment of old means, which were put away: couriers, manuscript or typewritten reports, heads of local reports, which successively deliver the orders, etc. Qualitative increase of the importance of the dissimulation, concealment, disguise, mishap and enemy disinformation capacities.

This demands the creation of a new legal and normative frame, which gathers and regulates the new warlike conditions that are appearing, they are maturing and are developing since several decades. And everything, having a sufficient vision of future, in order that the evolution of the rivals and of the circumstances and the events do not invalidate the legal and moral means, at not much time of being defined and accepting by a majority of countries and persons. Because, the agents and the units and the reconnaissance means cross and will constantly cross the space and/or the territory of the rivals and of numerous foreign countries in their conflict. Because, the enraged contenders will continue skipping the borders, to realize their harassment punctual actions. They are of harassment because they suppose the destruction and/or the punctual abduction of persons and/or units. Without with them the operational capacity is significantly altered in the theatre or area.

The Use of Drones in the War against the Islamic Terrorists.

The drones are used in the irregular war in reconnaissance tasks and follow-up and in assault actions against small targets. The US Air Force of the Pentagon has more than 1300 pilots of drones, being employed at 13 air bases of the USA. And calculates that at end of 2015, will have around 2000 pilots of drones. Already she is training more pilots for remote-controlled planes that for the conventional flights: around 350 in 2011. From 2012 the formation is specific for them: the pilots only pass 40 hours on board of a Cessna, without flying in fighters, to pass to learn to direct a drone. The equipment in the air base for the guide and control of the drones is very simple and highly elaborated: the control or helm of the drones, several television screens, surrounded with numerous auxiliar visual indicators and controls and a pedal. Everything arranged in pairs in front to both ergonomic chairs of the pilots. The drones have cameras that transmit in live time their sights to his pilots. A deliberate observation precedes an assault. The pilot of the drone and the camera controller of the, which form a «killer team», observe to his «designated aim» during long time, verifying his environment and his activities. The assault would be realized when, for example, the possibility of not wished human hurts («collateral damages») was minimal. The plane is capable of, once caught and authorized by the pilots an aim to beating, initiating by itself the assault, but this function has never allowed it.

The reconnaissance of the enemy and his exact location, both units and commands and local chiefs, and the recognition of the operations area is an old dream of the commands of all the times, to free themselves of part of their dreads and uncertainties. Because the modern maneuvers, even at the close distances, are changeable and plastic for the rivals commands. If we add the possibility of a constant follow-up of that one, this is “honey on small leaves of cereal”. In these tasks, the capacities of the drones allow his deep insertion in the enemy territory, without any danger for the reconnaissance specialized own forces and a clear, fluid and effective transmission of the results that they catch. It might say that they are a weapon designed with fortune to fulfill the opportune missions, if his employment is reasonable, controlled and shown restraint.

Because, the use of «not crewed planes» in reconnaissance missions of the enemy, raises a problem of difficult solution for the Americans Intelligence agencies and the Pentagon. Is thought that only the CIA can be receiving daily near 2000 photographies and 2000 hours of recordings of video from his spìes «drones». And all this nonsense informative, this undue plethora of images, only can drive to the clogging of the transmission, processing and valuation channels of the information. And to the tedium and disorientation of the intermediate commands. All this, though are used powerful computers and «key images and signs» to discriminate them in the process of selection. This result only can drive to a few routine and shallow analyses in «importance content» and to a profusion of non asked reports.

That they would be late years in turning in real intelligence, because here it is necessary to think for it. That one is the confirmed and valued information for the different operational and strategic controls. That clear and sufficiently orientates them of a situation, of his probable evolutions and changes and of the own possibilities of action, in agreement with the military strategy and the operational one or the received mission. With the abuse, already it is not a question of «obtain relevant and sufficient information». But the information that is obtained is overflowing, relarge and indigestible. And it is an information that poisons and disorients all. The essential and decisive criterion, is that the efforts go to the sectors and the most sensitive and important aims of the complicated process of the massive espionage. Which allows to discriminate the gathered information with unit of criterion and respecting the Universal war principle of the saving of the means. And that, continuing proven and effective alogaritms, other aims and neutral topics are chosen and sift with a given periodicity.

The destructive capacity of the explosive charges that carry the not driven assault plane is limited in his number and in his total power. The essential characteristic of his use is that is destined to limited goals, well in his size (a small number of not very spread enemies) or in his protection (not fortified targets). Nevertheless, they are useful to beat combat armoured vehicles, included the main battle tanks, with his hollow load missiles, which attack them in their vulnerable parts or zones (tracks, roofs).

(TO BE CONTINUED)

LA GUERRA CONTRA LOS TERRORISTAS ISLAMISTAS.

La guerra global contra el terrorismo organizado, proclamada por el presidente Bush tras el 11 de septiembre de 2001, se ha desinflado. Y con ello, la estrategia militar de combatir el variopinto yihadismo islamista en sus nidos y en sus focos infestados, siempre amenazantes. Sin que existieran para aquél, ni bases, ni refugios seguros en el mundo. Buscando sofocar ese peligro cierto, acechante, velado y ya sufrido. Y alejarlo de casa, del territorio de los USA. Mr. Obama bajó cualitativa y sustancialmente en 2011 los objetivos antiterroristas en la política exterior estadounidense.

La nueva Estrategia Nacional de los EEUU.

Para ello, el plan estatégico fija unos objetivos más políticos que militares en el Asia Central islámica. “Esta ha sido una década difícil para nuestro país. (Ahora) podemos alegrarnos de saber que la presión de la guerra está cediendo”. Se admite que (los estadounidenses no son capaces de “dejar un Afganistán perfecto”. Tampoco la democracia occidental es perfecta. Pero es comparativamente el menos injusto de los sistemas políticos conocidos. Y, debidamente regulado por el juego de los poderes públicos y la probidad de sus agentes, fue el que permitió el advenimiento de las clases medias, numerosas, educadas, laboriosas y progresistas. Así, apuestan por la negociación política con los talibanes moderados, para bajar la actividad de los grupos armados. Acercando las posibilidades de paz y de reconciliación en Afganistán. Pero la premisa mayor falla. No existen los talibanes moderados. Esta denominación repugna a la lógica. Ya que es una contradicción en los términos empleados. Igual que el “crecimiento negativo”, del que nos hablan algunos políticos. Los talibanes aplican rigurosamente la sharia. Que son las leyes civiles y penales sociales derivadas de la aplicación literal y rígida del Corán, en los asuntos profanos. Y la imponen por la fuerza. Y con un enemigo extranjero claudicante, sin convicciones firmes, con contradicciones internas, ¿para qué van a negociar los talibanes, teniendo el triunfo ya oliéndoles como las aromáticas flores del jardín de Allah?

Proclama Obama, con unos deficits fiscal y exterior desbocados, la necesidad de ahorrar en recursos militares, para dedicarlos “a construir una nación aquí, en casa”. Así, baja cualitativamente el listón del terror exterior, poniendo a la Red (al-Qaida) como único enemigo violento no nacional de los EEUU. La “red” terrorista salafista internacionalista, sin territorio propio, con sus jefes operativos conocidos, huidos y no deseados como huéspedes en ningún país normal, es un objetivo más asequible y manejable para los esquemas, los presupuestos y las aspiraciones de la “defensa menguante estadounidense”. Y queda al alcance de las acciones de la CIA y de los flamantes espías del Pentágono, de los aparatos aéreos no tripulados (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) de exploración y ataque puntual, de las acciones militares puntuales de las fuerzas de élite del Pentágono, de los ataques de pequeñas fuerzas expedicionarias y/o de asalto anfibio de los Marines, transportadas en “buques de mando y/o de transporte” con su escolta naval, de la penetración de los grupos terroristas o, al menos, el acercamiento, la observación y la información, por elementos locales afines, a sueldo del espionaje de los EEUU. Los despliegues de decenas de miles de militares y su complejo equipamiento y abastecimiento específicos durante varios años en un teatro de operaciones, son descartados indefinidamente por la nueva “doctrina”. El pueblo estadounidense, plagado con la adherente y compleja crisis económica, con la falta de mando político eficaz, con los costes de las guerras contra el terror (se habla de $1,6 billones -no millardos- gastados hasta ahora en Irak y Afganistán y unos $60 millones al mes en el despliegue de Libia, sin participar en acciones ofensivas), está cansado de las acciones exteriores y lo refleja continuamente en las encuestas. Como en los viejos tiempos, en otras crisis nacionales, un país que es casi un continente, se repliega parcialmente hacia él mismo.

Necesidad de un nuevo “Marco Legal” formal e internacional.

Las leyes dan carácter jurídico e institucionalizando lo que las necesidades, las costumbres y, por fin, las normas sociales han ido buscando y estableciendo en la evolución de las sociedades. No existe en la Historia un ejemplo similar al cuadro operativo, legal e institucional que que se plantean los EEUU y los rebeldes islamistas violentos en su dialéctica antagónica armada por todo un mundo global o unitario. Por lo tanto, casi todas las leyes de los países donde se desarrollen episodios de esa guerra, las leyes internacionales en boga y las normas sociales existentes, carecen de significado práctico y de capacidad para establecer un marco operativo suficiente para este conflicto bélico. Los dos grandes rivales enfrentados utilizan más o menos libremente toda la arena mundial, incluido el espacio, como “campos de acción” locales para realizar toda clase de operaciones contra su enemigo, sus aliados y sus medios y propiedades.

Los términos reales de aplicación de esa dialéctica violenta están cambiados, son nuevos o diferentes: internacionalización total del escenario bélico. Citaremos algunos de los significativos o más conocidos: las fronteras y las fajas o sectores de operaciones están diluidas o no son significativas en éstas; las operaciones preceden y marcan los combates o pequeñas batallas; acciones violentas dispersas, poco decisivas, inesperadas, discontinuas en el tiempo, que consiguen su trascendencia por acumulación, no por concatenación sucesiva o simultánea; se producen grandes movimientos de unidades o pequeñas unidades en muy corto tiempo; gran capacidad concentrada y rápida del poder de fuego empleado por los rivales, los vehículos bomba llegan a tener la capacidad de demolición de una bomba revienta manzanas; el empleo de esas unidades pequeñas, que no constituyen un “blanco útil”, les protege del fuego enemigo pesado de apoyo; las capacidades digitales sobradas de las comunicaciones inalámbricas y del tratamiento y custodia de la información son un arma nueva en el campo de la lucha por la información sensible; esto ha llevado al enemigo al empleo de viejos medios, que estaban arrinconados: estafetas, partes manuscritos o escritos a máquina, cabeceras de partes locales, que se entregan sucesivamente los encargos, etc.; aumento cualitativo de la importancia de la capacidad de disimulo, encubrimiento, disfraz, ocultamiento, despiste y desinformación del enemigo.

Esto exige la creación de un nuevo marco legal y normativo, que recoja y regule las nuevas condiciones bélicas que están apareciendo, van madurando y se están desarrollando desde hace varios lustros. Y todo, teniendo una suficiente visión de futuro para que la evolución de los rivales y de las circunstancias y los acontecimientos no invaliden los medios legales y morales a poco de ser definidos y aceptados por una mayoría de países y personas. Porque, los agentes y las unidades y los medios de exploración cruzan y cruzarán constantemente el espacio y/o el territorio de los rivales y de numerosos países ajenos a su conflicto. Porque, los contendientes enrabietados seguirán saltándose las fronteras para realizar sus acciones puntuales de hostigamiento. Son de hostigamiento porque suponen la destrucción y/o la abducción puntual de unidades y/o personas, sin que con ellas se altere significativamente la capacidad operativa en el teatro o área.

Los Aviones no Tripulados en la Guerra contra los Terroristas.

Los drones son empleados en la guerra irregular en tareas de exploración y seguimiento y en acciones de ataque contra objetivos pequeños. La US Air Force del Pentágono cuenta con más de 1300 pilotos de drones, trabajando en 13 bases aéreas de los EEUU. Y calcula que para 2015, tendrá unos 2000 pilotos de drones. Ya está entrenando más pilotos para aviones sin piloto que para los vuelos convencionales: unos 350 en 2011. Desde 2012 la formación es específica para ellos: los pilotos sólo pasan 40 horas a bordo de un Cessna, sin volar en cazas, para pasar a aprender a dirigir un drone. El equipo en la base aérea para el guiado y mando de los drones es muy simple y altamente elaborado: el mando o timón de los drones, varias pantallas de televisión, rodeadas de numerosos indicadores visuales y controles auxiliares y un pedal, todo dispuesto por parejas frente a las dos sillas ergonómicas de los pilotos. Los drones llevan cámaras que transmiten sus vistas en directo a sus pilotos. Una deliberada observación precede a un ataque. El piloto del drone y el controlador de la cámara, que forman un “killer team”, observan a su “objetivo designado” durante bastante tiempo, comprobando su entorno y sus actividades. El ataque se realizaría cuando, por ejemplo, la posibilidad de daños humanos no deseados (los “collateral damages”) fuese mínima. El avión es capaz de, una vez captado y autorizado por los pilotos un objetivo a batir, iniciar por su cuenta el ataque, pero esta función no se le ha permitido nunca.

La exploración del enemigo y su localización exacta, tanto unidades como jefes y jefecillos locales, y el reconocimiento del terreno de operaciones es un viejo sueño de los mandos de todos los tiempos, para librarse de parte de sus temores e incertidumbres. Porque las maniobras modernas, incluso a las distancias cercanas y próximas, son cambiantes y plásticas para los mandos rivales. Si le añadimos la posibilidad de un seguimiento continuo de aquél, esto es miel sobre hojuelas de cereal. En estas tareas, las capacidades de los drones permiten su inserción profunda en el territorio enemigo, sin peligro de ninguna clase para las fuerzas de exploración especializadas propias y una transmisión clara, fluida y eficaz de los resultados que captan. Se podría decir que son un arma diseñada con fortuna para cumplir las misiones oportunas, si su empleo es razonable, controlado y comedido.

Porque, el uso de “aviones no tripulados” en misiones de exploración del enemigo plantea en sí mismo un problema de difícil solución para las agencias de Inteligencia y el Pentágono estadounidenses. Se estima que sólo la CIA puede estar recibiendo cerca de 2000 fotografías y de 2000 horas de grabaciones de vídeo diarias de sus “drones” espías. Y toda esta farfolla informativa, esta plétora indebida de imágenes, sólo pueden conducir al atasco de los canales de transmisión, procesamiento y valoración de esa información. Y al hastío y la desorientación de los mandos intermedios. Todo ello, aunque se empleen ordenadores potentes e “imágenes y signos claves” para discriminarlas en el proceso de selección. Este resultado sólo puede conducir a unos análisis rutinarios y someros en “contenido con enjundia” y a una profusión de informes.

Que se tardarían años en convertir en verdadera inteligencia, porque aquí hay que pensar para ello. Aquélla es la información contrastada y valorada para los diferentes mandos operativos y estratégicos. Que les oriente clara y suficientemente de una situación, de sus probables evoluciones y cambios y de las posibilidades propias de actuación, de acuerdo con la estrategia militar y la operativa o la misión recibida. Con el abuso ya no se trata de “obtener información relevante y suficiente”. Sino que la información que se obtiene es desbordante, recrecida e indigerible. Y es una información que intoxica y desorienta a todos. El criterio esencial y decisivo, que permite discriminar la información recolectada con unidad de criterio y respetando el principio universal del ahorro de los medios, es que los esfuerzos se dirijan a los sectores y objetivos más sensibles e importantes del complicado proceso del espionaje masivo. Y que, siguiendo alogaritmos probados y eficaces, se elijan y criben con una periodicidad dada los otros objetivos y temas neutros.

La capacidad destructiva de las cargas explosivas que portan las aeronaves de ataque no tripuladas es limitada en su número y en su potencia total. La característica esencial de su uso es que está destinada a objetivos limitados, bien en su tamaño (un pequeño número de enemigos no muy desparramados) o en su protección (blancos no fortificados); sin embargo, son útiles para batir vehículos de combate blindados (VCB), incluidos los main battle tanks, con sus cohetes de carga hueca, que los atacan en sus partes más vulnerables. Los principales Unmanned Aerial Vehicles son el Predator y el Reaper. Y cuestan más de $13 millones de dólares por unidad. El Pentágono cuenta con unos 19000 para las tareas de espionaje y combate. La CIA dispone de su propia flota, con los datos de su número, clase y activación reservados. Los drones los fabrica la empresa General Atomics. Su arma más devastadora son los misiles AGM-114 Hellfire II (algo así como el “Fuego del Infierno” potenciado, concentrado y mejorado), de la Lockheed Martin. En octubre de 2012, los EEUU encargaron 24000 misiles para su uso y la venta a países aliados autorizados. Existen las variantes de carga hueca anticarro (HEAT), antipersonal o HE (con diversos tipos de explosión y fragmentación, reforzada o no) y de autoguiado (“fire and forget”). Cada uno pesa unos 47 Kgs., con el 20% de carga útil explosiva (warhead), es guiado por láser con diversas técnicas y tiene un alcance de hasta 8 Kms. El efecto de una salva de varios de ellos sobre una manzana de casas de adobe o de mampostería es demoledor. Pero garantiza la eliminación del blanco humano seleccionado y de sus “oficiales de escolta”.

El Uso de las Fuerzas de Incursión contra Objetivos limitados. Ejemplos.

Los Estados Unidos realizaron el primer fin de semana de octubre dos ataques sucesivos, casi simultáneos, empleando fuerzas de élite (Navy SEALS y Delta Force) para capturar a terroristas islamistas ubicados en Libia y en Somalia. “Nunca es demasiado tarde”, dijo el domingo día 6 John Kerry, secretario de Estado de los EEUU, en Indonesia, donde participó en la cumbre de la Alianza estratégica de los países del Asia y Pacífico (ASEAN). Al Qaida “puede correr, pero no se puede esconder” (de nosotros), apostilló orgulloso a sus oyentes.

El asalto de los Delta Force en Trípoli, realizado con el apoyo del FBI y la CIA, permitió la captura de Nazih al Ragye, de 49 años, buscado por los EEUU como el cerebro de los atentados con bombas contra las embajadas de los EEUU en Kenia y Tanzania. Estos ataques salvajes, realizados en 1998, produjeron 224 muertos e hirieron a un número no precisado de personas, demoliendo con ellos edificios modernos enteros. Su orden judicial de caza y captura data de entonces y se ofrecían 5 millones de dólares por su captura “vivo o muerto”. El jefe terrorista era conocido por el seudónimo de Abu Anas al-Libi, que, en la jerga primitiva y rural de estos elementos, quiere decir solamente “Padre de Anas y libio”. Vamos, como nuestros “el hijo de la parida o “Ricardo, el de Carmelina”. El tipo fue apresado por el destacamento de los Delta Force en las calles de Trípoli, cuando regresaba a su casa tras el rezo principal (con sermón incluido) de la mañana del viernes, siendo inmovilizado rápidamente, sin poder llegar a defenderse.

Por otra parte, un comando de los SEALS, llegó a la costa de Somalía en lanchas rápidas hacia el amanecer del día 5. Su misión era asaltar el reducto del puerto de Barawe, al sur de Mogadiscio, y capturar a un jefe de la milicia islamista somalí Al Shabab, asociada de al Qaida en el África Oriental. Ella reivindicó el ataque contra un centro comercial de Nairobi, capital de la fronteriza Kenia, realizado en agosto pasado por un comando suicida de Al Shabab (un pelotón reducido) entrenado militarmente y que se saldó con más de 60 muertos. El nombre del terrorista buscado no se ha hecho público, pero se supone que se trataba de Mujtar Abu Zubeyr, conocido como Ahmed Godane. Según una fuente oficial estadounidense el objetivo habría logrado escapar, pero otras fuentes aseguran que habría muerto en el ataque. Durante la misión, los Navy Seal sostuvieron un intenso tiroteo durante más de una hora con los islamistas, que sufrieron varias bajas. A su vez, ningún militar estadounidense resultó herido o muerto en ella.

Según el teniente coronel Rick Francona, consultado por la emisora estadounidense CNN, cada misión se podía haber desarrollado “independientemente de la otra”. “Pero el hecho de que se hayan producido las dos (así) pone de evidencia que los EEUU, no importa lo que se tarde, no ceja en sus objetivos”. La Casa Blanca dejó también saber, a través del secretario Kerry, que el presidente estaba “satisfecho con los resultados” de ambos asaltos. Recordemos que, cuando la intervención aérea de los EEUU en Libia en marzo de 2011, Obama prometió que en ningún momento habría soldados estadounidenses sobre el terreno en aquel país. Por ello, la decisión del presidente de dar luz verde a las misiones de grupos de comandos con objetivos limitados en Libia y en Somalía, afrontaba unos riesgos políticos claros. Según fuentes oficiales estadounidenses, los gobiernos de los países implicados fueron informados de las respectivas operaciones, siquiera a posteriori. Aunque los libios protestaron por su ejecución, quizás para justificar que al-Libi se pasease por Trípoli durante meses, sin que fuese molestado o capturado por las autoridades locales.

THE PERSECUTIONS TO THE MODERN CHRISTIANS.

There is taking place in the last months a real «planetary conjunction». It is about the «temporary coincidence» of a bloody and fierce pursuit of the Christians, whose «green outbreaks» are in the Arabic Islamic countries. That is coincidental with the solvent, quiet and cunning action of the European «trendies», against the virtues of the European societies. Both actions are surely a «cosmic part» of the so called » mysterium iniquitatis» or agree to the Darkness.

The Agony of the Christianity in the Frame of the Human rights habitually recognized.

The UNO is considered by many a bureaucratized and crystallized multinational organism. And it turns out to be already arthritic and almost ineffective in the steps and resolution of the most serious international problems, specially the conflicts. But his «Universal Declaration of Human Rights», approved on December 10, 1948 by his General Assembly, is still the paradigm and the principal reference of the civil, political, social, cultural and economic rights of all the men. The following are the articles most distinguished from that, relating to the topic that occupies us:

Article 2. Every person has all the rights and freedoms proclaimed in this Declaration, without distinction of race, color, sex, language, religion, political opinion or of any other nature, national or social origin, economic position, birth or any other condition…

Article 7. All the people are equal in the eyes of the law and have, without distinction, right to equal protection of the law. They all have right to equal protection against all discrimination that infringes this Declaration and against any provocation to such discrimination.

Article 12. Nobody will be an object of arbitrary interferences in his private life, his family, his domicile or his correspondence, neither assaults to his honor or to his reputation. Every person has right to the protection of the law against such interferences or assaults.

Article 18. Every person has right to the freedom of thought, of conscience and of religion. This right includes the freedom of changing religion or belief, as well as the freedom of demonstrating his religion or his belief, individual and collectivly, so much publicly as privately, for its education, the practice, the worship and the observance.

Article 19. Every individual has right to the freedom of opinion and of expression; this right includes of not being bothered because of his opinions, of investigating and receiving information and opinions, and of spreading them, without limitation of borders, by any way of expression.

Article 28. Every person has right to which there is established a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms proclaimed in this Declaration become fullly effective.

The «Enemies» of the Christian Churches. Ideological, political and moral Reasons for their «Permanent Pursuit».

The most certain and zealous enemies, along the History, of the ideas and the religions have always been the political or politician religious closed and despotic systems, the Messianic totalitarianims and the absolutist and exclusive States. In all of them we can see the same identity characteristic: the inflexibility and the immanence of his «statutory ideology». And it happens independently of that agrees with another religion. Or that it does in a social, political, economic and Messianic doctrine. That offers an «empire of domain» for thousand years, which scarcely lasts a decade. Or the appearance of the «new social man», at the cost of the sacrifice violently imposed on 200 previous generations (this was the estimate of “the Great Steersman”), and that crumbles in little more than four decades.

THE FUHRER ADOLF.

THE GREAT STEERSMAN, AS A MORTAL DEITY…

Or, more vulgarly, that it is the expression of the personal power or of clan of a governing minority (not a real social elite) compelling monopolizer, wilted and exclusivist. And in the practice, these «dictatorial societies» have a «lack», that will end taking them to his social sterility and to his vital ruin. And it is his total lack of a «sociological empathy» towards the stranger, the opposite one, the nearby neighbor, «other one». From which his religion, his political system or his political intention guide, abruptly separates them. And that works and operates in opposition to the desires and realities of the persons who live in these closed societies.

The Christians would be «less” pursuit by some of his State or particular enemies, if his labor was coming down to giving «worship to his God» and to slightly or null proselytism. But, apart from the preaching of «Good New» or Gospel to the men, the mission of the Churches includes to treat the «ethical foundations of the temporary order». And to give and to orientate their faithful and the men, on «the morality in the actions and temporary situations», private and public. This way, when the bishops or priests and even the faithful are quiet before an objective and serious immorality for reasons of «opportunism, education or relativism seudopolitic», they are incurring what, in Apocalyptic words, would be «the fornication with the kings of the land». This ideological oppression, with which it is tried to restrict «politicly and softly» the Christian doctrine, is summarized very well in a joke of the 60s, referred to the catholic Church and using an encyclical of Juan XXIII: “Mater, yes, Magistra, no”.

The virtues as identity and defense of the human societies.

It is now a question of something that affects and attacks a human virtue. The virtues are the kindness and reference qualities, hihgly regarded and permanently valued by the societies and human groups.

The virtues are very resistant and lasting in the time. The values, on the other hand, are the kindness and human qualities, temporary and/or local estimated by some societies and human groups. And they are so, principally, due to his idiosyncrasy, the living conditions and the pressures received from the exterior. These cultural and social values are evolving with the contingencies, the displacements and the fortunes of the human societies.

Inside our extensive Western Culture, which reaches to all the continents of the West and, in minor measure, to Asia, the identity virtues are provided by the different Christian churches and by Cicero’s speeches and Plato’s Dialogs. One of these essential virtues is the respect and the worship to the divinity. As recognition and worship to the Necessary Being who creates us, supports us and, in some cases, helps us. This makes concrete, according to the education, the culture and the social environment.

The armed Pursuit to the Christians in the Arabic Countries.

There are given in the last months diverse cases of violent pursuit to the Christians, in countries where the Moslem religion predominates. They are the lands of “dar-al-Islam”, where the Umma or Moslem universal community politically dominates. But some not Muslims who live in dar-al-Islam have a «protection agreement» with her. To this the Jews and the Christians have theoretical right, as peoples mentioned in the Koran. And that hold some of the Books also considered prophetic by the Islam.

In Iraq, al-Qaeda attacked the Christians, as part of his strategy of crushing the Iraqi civil society. Generating the hatred between the different religious, ethnic and social classes. And facing them violently between themselves. The victims here were the Syriacs and Caldeums Iraqi Catholics. Whose number is today less than 1/3 of those who existed in the epoch of the defamed Sadam Hussein al-Tikriti. Neither the former prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki helped to smooth the things. In effect, he carried out a Islamization campaign in Baghdad. And his targets were the masculine scattering places, where alcohol is sold, the jeweler’s shops and the bagdadies Christians.

BOKO HARAM

Since the Sharia was implanted in 1999, as consolidation of the Moslem power, in 12 northern States of the federal Nigeria, the dead men in the ethnical religious fights that struck, were more than 15 thousand persons. Only in March, 2010, the (Moslem) ranchers of the fulani etnia realized diverse assaults against the Christian farmers, who caused approximately 500 dead men. In eve of the Christmas of 2010, one new radical violent Islamic fundamentalist group, autocalled Jama atu Ahlu «SUNNA» Lidda Awati Wal «YIHAD» realized a simultaneous multiple assault in a Christian neighborhood of Jos’s city. They did explosion 9 or 10 devices in his streets and the market, looking for the persons’ major concentrations, causing near 90 dead and 190 injured Christians.

In Pakistan, the local groups of Tehkrit-e-Taliban Pakistan and related, attack the Christian churches and the faithfuls whom they can accuse of some verbal slip or of an improper conduct. Those are established at the west of the Indus, from Quetta, in the Pakistani Baluchistan, up to the north of the valley of the Swat. They connect with the independence Muslims of the Indian Kashmir, which assumed the terrorist assaults in Bombay. In Egypt, the Coptic Christians are usually squeezed by the republican oligarch regime. And now after the military revolution of Marschal Abdel Fattah al-Sissi against the Moslem Brothers, their social situation is lastly more deteriorated. This way, for example, it is denies to them the right to substitute or repair his worship places. This has provoked some Christian local revolts.

MOSLEM BROTHERS’ COAT OF ARMS

Everything with the consent of the omnipresent and theoretically illegal Moslem Brothers. This is one of the veteran organizations in the Arabic expansion of the politicallly active violent Islamism. Whose principal original ideologists ended hung by the Egyptian authorities of the epoch. In the Upper Egypt numerous Coptic churches can be visited. The Christians came to Egypt several centuries before the appearance of the Islam. Their churches are frecuently being surrounded with palisades or with protective fences. But a church is a place of popular reception and encounter.

And, finally, let’s speak about the sealed off and infected case of the Sudan. Where the northern Arabs want to impose the Islam by the force over the black tribes of the west (Darfur) and of the south. These are of Christian or animistic religions (natives primitive, in constant setback). This religious and ideological oppression is anchored in the secular mentality of slave-trading of the Arabs at the north of Khartoum. That already had from before the times of the Khedive or «viceroy» in Cairo of the Sublime Door. The succesor and nominal owner of the Arabic Caliphate. This was complicated and established in the last decades, with the fight for the rich oilfields and miners deposits of the south and the west of Sudan.

These natural resources, exploited in collaboration with the Chinese (certainly, the new Economic imperialists of the developing countries), would guarantee the viability of a of the free and independent South Sudan. That was initially stimulated and directed by the Popular Movement for the Liberation of the Sudan. Whose military wing (and more known by the public) is his Sudan People Liberation Army. The movement was born in 1983 as popular, religious and of classes reaction to Yafar al-Numeri’s attempt of imposing «manu militari» the Sharia and the Islamization (a “legal”, but illegitimate and reactionary religiousness), in the south of the country.

As in all the civil, concealed and irregular wars, the figures of the «volunteers» appear here, next to the government. As usual, having scanty military orthodox formation and an enormous zeal. On having been newcomers or upstarts, to demonstrate his loyalty and his usefulness to the governmental owner. The nomadic Arabs of Darfur and the frontier Chad form the Janjaweed militias, of light irregular cavalry. Khartoum franchises them in order that they terrify, disperse and decimate the settlers of Darfur. In the bordering lands with Kenya, the Muslims use a combination of Arabic militias (of the etnia misseriya) and renegade (or converted, as look) blacks. To terrify, scourge and displace the black settlers from their lands. In some cases, these «patriots» are supported by the regular aviation and the artillery of Khartoum.

Finally, let’s indicate that a Great Perpetrator of these violations, the president of the North Sudan Omar Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir, of 70 years, is processed as person in charge of these violations, for “genocide and war crimes” by the Penal International Court of The Hague. Nevertheless, this pajarraco defies the international arrest warrant against him. And since its emission he have went to Egypt, Qatar, Lybia, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea (50 Moslem %), Chad, all countries of Islamic religion.

THE GREAT PERPETRATOR…

Finally, to remember that we have already published numerous articles about the wars that devastate the geopolitical zone of the Asia of the Southwest and the fraticide fights between sunnis (93 % of Muslims) and shiies (7 % of Muslims) in her, looking for the prevalence in the Islam. We suggest to our nice readers, who should wish know with more actuality and extension the rage means committed against the Christians and other minorities by the salafist islamists, to reread these articles.

The juridical religious Pursuit of the Christians in the Islamic Countries.

In major or minor intensity and inflexibility, according to the cases, the sharia establishes nowadays against the Christians:

Death sentence against the blasphemers (to offend, according to his criterion, Allah, the Islam, the Khoran, the Prophet) and to the converted from the Islam (for his apostasy).

Burning and demolition of the temples and closing of Christian schools, hospitals and orphanages.

Prohibition of entry to the country, expulsion and inclusive death sentence to the Christian missionaries.

Prison for carrying Christian symbols. Prohibition of meeting to pray or to celebrate the Holy Mass, even in the homes.

Compulsory conversion to the Islam.

Nigeria, Sudan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwai, Malaysia, Indonesia, Syria, apart from Saudi Arabia and Iran, are the countries where the sharia is more or less established.

In these countries, the not Moslem communities in general pay taxes, for not being harassed by the Muslims and living in peace under his protection. These taxes are the “administrative link” between the «protected» unfaithful persons and dar al- Islam.

But, any «doctor» of the Islam can teach that a collective duty of the Umma or believers’ community is the spread of the faith. That is realized imposing and not catechizing her (or «preaching the catechism» or text of the doctrine). Carrying out with it the consolidation and the extension of dar-al-Islam, the lands submitted to the Koran, the sunna and the sharia or civil and penal laws based on them.

Consequently, in agreement with his doctrine, when expires an «agreement of protection», the Moslem authority only can accept that it is renewed, if the amount of the taxes is increased or if in the new contract is stipulated the transfer to the Islam of more lands or cities, additional to the before yielded by the dimmíes (the Jews and Christians, the peoples also mentioned in the Koran and that hold part of Allah’s revelation). Also they use the legal principle that if some member of the «protected» community damages a Muslim, all his collectivity loses the “protection right”.

How do Moslem Authorities react to these local Violations?

Well, they look to other side. As if the Christians did not have acquired rights, according to his religion. As if in Europe we were pursuiting and condemning death, to the jail and to the confiscation of goods, to the millions of Muslims who live and prosper here, taking refuge in the kindness of the State of the well-being. The majority of the Muslims takes distance from the aggressions for opportunism, to protect the Islam, worried by the increasing rejection that it suffers in West.

His spokesmen affirm that the Islam is peace and tolerance. But this is not totally true. Not with the attempts of the jihadists that we suffer in name of the Islam, not with the extensive pursuit, in many countries, which the Christians suffer. This contrasts with his attitude of directed, noisy and bad-tempered protest, always threatening, when, for example, a few Mohammed’s cartoons, publish in territories outside the Sharia, in another physical and cultural continent. That, according to their strict and inappealable criterion, are offensive for themselves, acting as judge and part. And it turns out that, out of his countries, the Sharia lacks legal or religious jurisdiction. It is not any more than wet paper. Another thing is that they “accept” this. And say so to the persons that understand very little about the Islam.

YOU WILL BE A SON FOR HIM (ALI JAMENEI) AND HE WILL BE A FATHER FOR YOU (GENERAL QASSEM SULEIMANI, IRAN’S REVOLUTIONARY GUARD

The radical contemporary Islamics (Moslem Brothers, al-Qaeda and his regional exemptions, the Taliban cis and trans over the Durand frontier line between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Islamic Republic of Iran and his henchmen fellow soldiers of Hamas and Hezbollah, the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, Boco Haram, the al-Shabad militias, etc.) see in the Western Civilization, the worst enemy of their ideas and plans.

Because our civilization is founded on the reason, the scientific and philosophical knowledge, the freedom, the rights and the Christan faiths. Because by these clear advantages, we can conquer his despotism and his radicality; the discrimination of the women for mundane very old reasons, in which the religion and the protection of them are the theoretical excuse; the rejection of the scientific assumptions of progress and culture, on having had retired as Islamic orthodox method of study, the ichtihad or analogical common sense reasoning, from the 11th century.

Finally, in the Christianity, the believer perceives his God as a Father and a nearby, just and rewarder Saviour, with the arms receiving in Mercy. However the Newests are not preached very much nowadays, to not alarm the «trendies». In the Islam, God is separated from the man by a natural insurmountable abyss and is just and rewarder with him. But it is more feared by his justice and separation, that considered as intimate and nutritious Father.

And, how reacts the many-colored European trendy ectoplasm?

This one is generally of central control «ideology» (because they want to direct us, up to the minimal social and personal details, as if we were immature), despotic (because his postulates are not debatable by others), imperious (because his method is the imposition, not the conviction) and, today, shamefully socialist. It is shamefully socialist, because his “dream of sofa, coffee and scholarship or prebend” was to recreate a “paradise of the proletariat». That would have more or less «oasis and houris», according to his cases, in his lands. Though none went to live in the USSR or another socialist countries, to be employed at them, already at the time.

And this dream turned into nightmare, of difficult, agonizing and hasty awakening, with the fall of the Socialist States through all the Eastern Europe. And the discovery by all the rest, that to the «new social man» of these countries, the «cause of the proletariat» nothing, nothing motivated him. The technological armament career that imposed the USA in the decade of the 80, absorbed the best resources of the USSR. And it shrivelled up her to the entrails. Following a national strategy of wear, without direct threats, or melodramatic maneuvers. Some “not principal” members of the «nomenklatura» later admitted that «we did not have anything to eat» then. And the Red Empire, empty of contents, messages and illusions, social and economically implosioned. And the Soviet Army formerly feared by the Western Europe (the classic NATO), remained turned for many years into a «paper tiger».

So, the proper thing of the «trendies» (or peoples of ideas with few theoretical or ethical conditions) it is also here to kept silent before the violations to the Christians, away the sure borders of the great Europe, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Urals. It also takes place here a social paradoxical, but not unusual phenomenon: the islamist feverish militants and the decadent «trendies», though placed in two social antagonistic and irreconcilable ends, have the same operational intention:

The destruction of the European society, as it is still built-up, on the foundations of the Classic and Christian virtues. And his substitution by an amorphous society, without coherent, protective and stimulant virtues, satisfied, mangery and worker. Where the immediate material desires, which before we were calling «caprices», for its inconstancy and superfluousness, are looked for as small indispensable goals. Because they are the consoling of the lives lacking vital transcendency and substance.

THE NATIONAL STRATEGY OF RUSSIA.

The first national foreign aim of Russian is to promote the «multipolarity in the world structure» of the great powers and his allies. Looking that does not exist a world hegemonic power as the USA, which hinders her in the extension of her influence and power from his «Euro-Asian center». For it, she will create alliances and will establish agreements and treaties with third parties in detriment or in substitution of that hegemonic power. And she will be a «intransigent obstructionist actor» in all the actions that this unilaterally promotes in the international forums (UNO, Atomic International Energy Agency).

 NOTHING CALMING…

Another great strategic preference of Moscow is to extend his influence and to enlarge the economic and diplomatic bonds with the nations in development, specially those who have «natural resources and primary crops», that are necessary for the manufacturing production, the feeding and the general development of the nations. She has taken them and will take them even far, beyond of her geographical borders of political influence or military strategic.

The loss of her «controlled allies» in the Warsaw Pact and the COMECON, after the cold war, only leave Russia to geographically look for «new influences» towards the Central Asia, from Syria to the India and Vietnam. Turkey is a proverbial enemy of the Russians. In Afghanistan they could never have situated. Which is social political constant for other powers that have tried it in other moments. Also the Russians try to win and to keep in his «political and commercial sphere» the new Central Asiatic Islamic Turkoman republics and to the ex-Soviets Slavonic republics, these with almost none possibilities.

In the Turkestán Oriental, one finds a rosary of former Soviet socialist republics of approximately 2 thousand Kms of length, which reaches up to the oriental shore of the Caspian Sea. They are, from east to west, Kazajistan, Kirguistan, Tadzikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. That form a set of several ethnics, gathered in the names of them, but simultaneously extended over several countries. That are of Turkoman origin, from the central steppes of Asia, and agglutinated also by their belonging to the sunni Islam. These Turkoman Muslims are potentials allieds of Russia, in all that this puts a bit of dedication and neatness to attract and to attend them. And, till now, the Customs Union created by Russia includes only the White Russia or Byelorussia and Kazajistan. In addition, Russia has signed military agreements with Byelorussia, Armenia, Kazajistan, Kirguistan and Tajikistan. Established in the frame of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). And that guarantee to these countries at the East of Europe and in the Central Asia a defense against external or internal aggressions. And they offer to Russia an extension of her international influence.

PRESIDENTS OF RUSSIA, BIELORRUSIA, KAZAJISTAN, KIRGUISTAN, UZBEKISTAN, ARMENIA AND TAJIKISTAN ASSEMBLED FOR ANTITERRORIST COOPERATION .

If Russia thinks that there are at stake her national interests or her national pride, it proves to be stuck-up and deigns and, even, aggressive. One of the neurotic tics of the exterior politics of Moscow is the dismemberment of the Soviet empire 25 years ago. That many attribute, not to her implosion, for lack of resources and economic expired structures, and of social motivation. But to international abuses, which benefited of her relating to the moment weakness.

When the Russians meet strategic international problems, they demonstrate more freedom of action, initiative, creativity and flexibility in his offers and actions. Russia uses the whole set of means and capacities of a modern State to go forward, to tease, to complicate and to deactivate the actions and the resources used by the West. This way, Russia uses the propaganda of State, employing: a great profusion of audio-visual communications, which we do not know in Spain; immediate refutations of the rivals’ arguments; employment of credible arguments to deny her relation with the observable facts; sending of humanitarian help in great and showy caravans to the zones in conflict. The diplomacy, where there faces John Kerry, a provisional struck politician, with Serguei Lavrov’s extensive career, and keeping meetings and visits with western chief executive agents and of the regional involved countries; doing declarations and agreements, which ended suspended, protested or broken; realizing attempts of bribe to European politicians of second level. The economy, as in the cases of China and of Spanish America. And answering to the western sanctions for her militar actions in Ukraine with measured suspensions and charges of her European imports, which are afraid by the Europe of the merchants. Military, sending: «paramilitary voluntary» forces; regular forces and military modern equipments, sometimes accompanied by the experts in their using or for their training; delivering weapon and military material to hier sponsored; and realizing «diffuse violations» of the air space of the countries at the west of her European border, more concretely in the Baltic sea and his coastal countries.

KERRY AND LAVROV.

Not they all are goodness and advantages in a super presidential regime. The concentrated and decisive power has to be administered in small doses, not to abuse, neither to damage, nor to fall down in the temptation of looking for his indefinite continuity. The despotism (that arises from the rotten conviction of the commands that «they» have «saved» a «his» mother land), the corruption and the clientelism, spread over the power circles and his boundaries, become manifest and customary in the society. The political and ideological opposition, with his critiques, parliamentary actions and street protests, can become almost unbearable. For whom are centered in planning, deciding and executing in altars of the people, but not with the people. The jail and the properties confiscation are reprisals used in all the times, which its origin gets lost in the night of the times, in the prehistory. Used against the dissidents, uncontrollable and disobedient and for all the potential (imagined or not) and real enemies of the regime.

In her relations with the West, Russia distinguishes two great «geopolitical spaces»: the USA and the European Union. The USA is the great rival, but not yet enemy. With that she tries to compete and whom she tries to erode in all the occasions to which she can reach. Russia follows the politic strategic theory of the multipolar world. That would possess several great «radiant centers» of influence and control. Where there would no be hegemonic global powers, which they could control and/or dominate more or less, according to their interests. This global strategy is well see by all the continental and, yet, regional powers, that possess sufficient capacities and international aspirations of projection and ascendancy.

Before the united Europe, Russia is seen herself as an equal. The first one exceeds her in demography and in economic capacity. And Russia has to her favor an AAFF, even the Branch of Strategic Missiles, sufficient and with only one Command. That are supported by her economy and diplomacy. Since she possesses a political, enough monolithic or integrated leadership. That, before a confrontation or an arisen opportunity, can operate with more major forcefulness and rapidity that the endogamic and paralyzed bureaucracy of the Union Europe. And opposite to the great geopolitical region of the Eastern Europe, formed by her former allied in the Warsaw Pact and the Comecom (the former economic communist union based in the specialization in national activities), has to act with a strategy of successive actions or of the artichoke. Because an excess of «pressure» over them, only would achieve that they agglutinate between them more; and link themselves more economic and militarily to the western nations…

But, also Russia uses the more or less veiled interference in the internal matters of her rivals. Seeking to create social problems and centrifugal trends, still heart-breaking, in their social fabric. Taking advantage for it of the freedom of expression, which is one of the values of the western civilization. This way, Russia acts against Europe supporting the most promising solvent movements. Some are populist and antisystem, which operate against the shared values and beliefs, which shape and form the western civilization. Others are nationalists and sovereignists, that fight against Europa’s multinational integration and his construction. This way, in Germany Police has materialized an «alliance» between the Youths of the Party Alternative for Germany (AfD) with the Young Guard of Russia. The man of connection between Moscow and the AfD is his vice-president, Alexander Garland. That re-joins regularly with Alexander Dugin, a man with the confidence of Putin. And the members and Euro MPs of the AfD support the movement of British euroexceptics and hinder the approval of the measures for the European construction in the Eurochamber of Brussels.

The political military extern action.

The operational strategy of Russia consists in acting by means of «emphasized» allies in a given geopolitical theatre. This way, she regionally uses these «interposed actors», more or less strong, independent and «sovereign». In order that they give her in the intervention in the conflict, (that her is seemingly foreign, as Russia is a middle-high continental power), a stamp of international category and legality and of reliability and seriousness before the international community, specially with the not western countries.

Also Moscow acts in the «diffuse external limits» of his former «imperial living space». She does it «supporting», with a great range of possibilities, almost made-to-measure, at different Russian or Christian communities, which are «separated» from the mother land. This way, there are some republics or «ethnic communities», apart from the two that we will mention in the case of Georgia, which receive the opportune help of Russia. They are the Transnistria, of etnia Russian, placed at the East of Moldavia, which is of Rumanian population, and Nagorno Karabaj, where live the karabajos Armenians, that is in the center of Azerbaijan, which is of sunni religion. Azerbaijan is frontier with Russia and with Turkey and receives the support of the last one.

Georgia:

In 2008, in her asymmetric and overwhelming war against Georgia, Russia was served by the «independentof South Osetia and Abjasia (embraced at the North-East of the Black Sea), two «rebels» Georgian provinces. The pretext was to come to the defense of these nations, which had many Russian habitants, to defend them from the Georgian «arbitrarinesses and assaults». Already existed since years «Russian forces of pacification» in Ossetia of the South, which immediately took sides with the independents.

GEORGIAN TROOPS BAIL OUT A VEHICLE AT OUTSKIRTS OF GORI

Ukraine:

Following his direct, imperious and operating manners, in the middle of December, 2013, Putin threw a strong bet to Ukraine. In order that she was happening to form part of the Russian «sphere of coprosperity«: Putin offered her to lower 33 % the price of transfer of the Russian gas, of which Ukraine is recipient and reseller. And, to save her from the financial bankruptcy and she did not have to be thrown for it in hands of the Community Troika, he would yield her until $15 billions in beneficial credits. But, in Ukraine the social politics problems arisen have led to a strong polarization of the country, being formed two almost antagonistic halves. Where the part al the west of Crimea, wants to move away from Moscow and the half at the east of this peninsula, seeks to increase the bonds with Russia. Ukraine is for history and demography part of the Europe limited at the east part by the Urals. And Ukraine is by political opportunity and historical moment, part of the democratic and liberal western center Europe. That forms together with the United States, which operates as another fundamental «vibrant pole» at the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, the «Western Civilization «.

For Russia, Ukraine is something more than a strategic ally. Ukraine is a part of the national Russian essence. In Ukraine was born many hundreds years ago, the strong and promising germ of the Russian nation, the Rus. And Russia has bet high. Trying to return for his rights, traditions and influences. Or she will have to accept with turning into a «national state«, without «coprosperity sphere» dependent, participative and profitable for all. So, a «regional or second-class power», as named her the president Obama at the beginnings of this crisis.

From the spring of 2014, the opposition armed in the Novarussia (this way, the prorussians separatists autoname his territory in the basin of the Donbass and adjacent zones) is supported by the Russians. That openly send military equipments (intermingled sometimes with convoy of humanitarian help for the civil population of the region); groups of internationalists «volunteers»: Cossaks, Russians, even prorussians veteran Chechenians; specialists (engineers, gunners, instructors, servants of short range missils and of anti-aircraft weapons, elite forces) for the high level military tasks. And pressing the central Ukrainians in the common border with movements and parkings of her motorized troops, at the west of Rostov on the Don. It deserves indicating that Novarussia’s republic is not internationally recognized.

The «national rebels» and the central government of Kiev, with the president Petró Poroshenko at head, have followed till now an operational strategy of give and take, of the strategic «cachumbambe«. Where everything is enough measured and reasonably controlled. To be advancing each part by short and few steps. Without the beast of the open warfare between nations and alliances irreversibly runs away. And so we are and will continue for long time. This way, the points of the Agreements of Minsk are dissolved and in «stand by» or in neutralized wait. Looking that do not break them, for the continuous small violations of the truce agreed by the parts.

POROSHENKO AND PUTIN…

A great problem appears now, not only to Ukraine, but to his neighbors at the east and west parts. And it is to obtain that the today antagonists and irreconcilable forces, that face in Ukraine, crushing his mother land, turn into complementary and necessary forces between them. And it is a great joint, disinterested labor, with height sights and directed by statesmen, which is necessary to develop to obtain it. In the case of not be obtaining this «merger of interests», the alternative would be bad for all, nationals and nearby and distant neighbors. And the wound only would be falsely closed and for an unforseeable time.

Syria:

From the beginnings of July, 2015, the Russians have been increasing his military direct presence in Syria. His armed forces have established themselves principally in the Latakia, covering Tarsus’s surroundings, his only naval base in the Mediterranean and his military airport. They include fighter-bombers, assault and carrier and rescue helicopters (with a centener of machines always operational), not driven aircraft of reconnaissance and bombardment and the corresponding ground units of support and of security. And now, from the ends of September, they are bombarding the positions of the armed rebels to the regime of al-Assad, at Alepo’s southwest; in the Latakia; near to Hama, Homs and Damascus, in the basin of the Orontes; in Idlib’s province and in the Turkoman zone close to the border; in Raqqa and other positions of the IS, in the North-East of the country and in the great desert of Syria. Recovering Palmira at the end of March, 2016, which fell down in May, 2015 in hands of the Daesh or ISSI. A spokesperson of the Russian Defense Department declared that «they would not operate there indefinitely» and that they were calculating that they would need «approximately 100 days» of air assaults. These days have doubled, up to almost the spring of 2015, before Putin was initiating a partial and sufficient withdraw of his military means. The Kurdish peshmerrgas of the YPG, the national allies of the USA, deployed by the whole center oriental border with Turkey, have not been bothered by the Russians. Between those who have suffered his unexpected assaults are the irregular forces of the Front al-Nusrah for the Liberation of the Peoples of the East, the national subsidiary of al-Qaeda. So dangerous and ideologically radical as the muyahidines of the Islamic State, but less cruel and less capable militarily.

To the reproaches of some western countries against this intervention, Putin and Lavrov argued that the «multinational Coalition of the 60 allies» was coming bombarding the salafists jihadists from September, 2014, without having for it a mandate of the UNO. Sure that Obama’s coalition was attacking in Iraq, with the theoretic and «previous daily permission» of the Iraqi government. In fact, the general of four stars James Terry, who is the chief of the American forces in Iraq from November, 2014, acts as an undeserved speaker for his high graduation, with the government and the discredited armed forces and Iraqi militias. But the assaults on Syria of the allies were not possessing the consent of his regime. And were going operationally supporting the peshmergas and debilitating the ISSI. Let’s emphasize that the Russians, as the mentioned leaders have justified themselves, «are very polite and are operating in Syria for invitation of his government».

It is of remembering that Syria was during decades the allied one in the Middle East of the USSR, and today, of Russia. And that Syria was considered also during decades a terrorist antiwestern state. Of the style of North Korea. That literally flooded the whole geopolitical Islamic region with the assault rifles AK and the grenade-launchers of hollow load RPG, for the guerrilla groups of “popular liberation”.

FRIENDS FOR EVER…

Russia wants to recover her international protagonism and respect. In spite of her diminished demographic, economic and structural capacities. And her loss of prestige democratic and politic, gained with the conflict of Crimea and Ukraine. But, with the military intervention in Syria, Putin attacks the root of the problem of the “fled Syrians”: that is the pressure of a cruel and long civil war on them. And it allows him to calm the Europeans with the short-term containment of the massive and constant invasion of those. Looking for an attenuation of the economic sanctions of the European Union to the government of Putin for his shameless actions in Ukraine.

Russia also supports and gives a strong accolade to the Syrian regime with her intervention. After 5 years of war, the National Syrian Army is exhausted and weaked by a bleeding of more than 70 thousand dead men, suffering continuous desertions towards the different rebels groups (from the Free Syrian Army to the jihadists groups) and having great difficulties to mobilize recruits. The soldiers at arms in April, 2011, if still are suitable, have not been licensed of the service. The militias sent by Hezbola’s shiis in 2014 to support them have not been sufficient to change the course of the war against al-Assad. The government already did not have enough men to realize counterinsurgency effective operations, against the armed rebels. Who were harassing him from numerous and divided «attack strips» through the whole Syrian geography. Especially, he lacks the «specialists» and means of the artillery and of the ground assault aviation.

Obama said: «the moral leadership is a weapon much more powerful than the brute force». This is true, when the concerned speakers possess and exhibit the same civil virtues that a democrat. But, when it is a question of beasts, of selfish, of madmen, of unscrupulous opportunists, of peoples that still perceive the force as the instrument of the strongest, this is not useful. It does not matter in the social level in which they are. The leadership is to convince, to direct with the example, to attract the persons towards oneself, for pure pleasure, affinity or mission. To realize a joint labor in benefit of the social group to which one belongs.

And this social role is left out by Obama in Syria. And also some time ago that he ignores, for carelessness or disability and lack of conscience of his identity, the European Union. The one that is not waited in “these fights and by these homes”. But, the political thing, the res politica, has horror and abominates of the «emptinesses», of the «absences». And, this way, he has been attracted by the suction of both, the opportunist of Putin, anxious to lead another more international episode. For that his people, from the first of 2014, proudly endorses him. To compensate his impoverished national revenue and his diminishing demography, Putin gives them international protagonism and national pride.

On March 14, Putin began to dismantle his military deployment in Syria. But left it sufficiently capable, in order that the NSA could expel from Palmira, a few days later, the guerrillas of the ISSI. Possessing the support of the Russians elite infantry forces and heavy air fire for his ground motorized forces. With it, Putin partly removes himself of the peace conversations of Geneva for Syria. And stays, as the only speaker with the not miscible and schizophrenic miscellany of the rebels, the regime of al-Assad. Because, if not, with whom are the jihadists and the National Council of Syria going to negotiate? In this absurd mixture are, between others, the Army of the Conquest, the Muyahidines of Syria, the Army of the Islam, the local Kurds, the Islamist Front anti al-Qaeda and local groups of «partners» to someone. Only in Idbil’s province, at the North-East of the country, in the border with Turkey, there existed more than 100 «different» rebel «groups». And Putin saves himself to return, if he considers necessarily. As he only withdrew around a third of his air operational forces. And he goes forward the movements of the Coalition, which still has not put foot in land. Though Arabia and Qatar offered in February to send ground troops to the conflict. But, how were they going to coordinate and operate in a «polyhostile» territory and without authorization of his government?

Russia uses the Economy as one of the means of her National Strategy.

Using the economy, one of the forces of the national strategy or great strategy of a country, helped by the diplomacy, other one of the potentials of her, Russia seeks to create with the emergent countries «cores of action and shared prosperity». Those Initiated or cultivated in a world that Russia wishes that would be «multipolarized» in diverse «cores and centers of geopolitical power». That they necessarily reduce this way, for their mere existence, the great western powers, today «dependents of the world trade».

The relations with communist China:

China is for Russia a partner, competitor and rival, if serves this polyvalent definition, which does that none of the expressions used is in fullness. Both are «emergent powers», according to the new nomenclature. Determined in growing, in not be directly damaging for the moment and in eroding the hegemonic power and his Europeans allied. This way, the Chinese would not act directly, not by third interposed countries, in Syria or in Iraq, in the boiling cauldron of the Asia of the Southwest: scene of the global contest that sunnis and shiites develop for the control and the supremacy in the Islam.

But they will do it collaborating uo to a point with the interests and the diplomatic propositions of the Russians. Reinforcing this way a political common position of counterweight and neutralization of the influence of West in the zone. And in exchange for a certain Russian reciprocity in favour of the Chinese interests, in other countries in which do not collide the national influences of both.

PUTIN AND XI JIPING, AFTER SIGNED THE GAS AGREEMENT

With his habitual opportunity and operational agility, Putin signed with the president Xi Jinping on Wednesday, the 21st of May, 2014 a strategic contract (30 years of validity) to supply to China around 38 billions of ms3 of Russian gas every year. Certain it is that the negotiations of this transcendental contract have extended during a decade, but the opportunity of his signature for both partners is undeniable. Russia has determined his signature lowering a little the price of transfer, which has not leaked out, and that was the principal obstacle for the agreement between Russian State entity Gazprom and the National Corporation of the Oil of China. There will be begun immediately the installation of a new gas pipeline between Siberia and China, which will cost 55 $ billion and that will be operational in 4 years. China obtains this way a stable supply of part of his energetic primary needs (about 25 %), which will allow him to be reducing his strategic dependence of his national coal. Whose combustion is the principal generating factor of the massive pollution that suffer nowadays the great cities and the industrialized coast of China. It is calculated, according to the official estimations, that China will need 400 billions of ms3 of gas by the year 2020, doubling the current consumption of gas. Which opens the possibility for new extensions of the Russian supply In the frame of this agreement. By his part, looking for alternative markets for his primary energy, Putin reduces transcendency and efficiency with this commercial operation, to the babbling actions of the European Union. For replace part of the supply of the Russian gas, using other hypothetical suppliers of allende the seas. And, in addition, any strangulation of the current service by his buyers, will force the EU to increase his help to Ukraine, to compensate his «reduced income» for the passage of the gas by his territory.

This agreement of energetic supply between Russia and China untied on Thursday, the 21st of May of this year the fears of the European Union and stood out his disability of joint and efficient reaction. The president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Durao Barroso, sent a letter to Vladimir Putin, demanding from the Russian president that ihe fulfills his commitments and assures «the supply to the European companies in the decided level». Barroso received the order from the European chiefs of Government of answering in their name to Putin. In spite of that this had gone directly to several members states, to indicate them the problem that they would untie with the establishment of economic sanctions to Russia. «I write you in name of the European Union and his 28 States members«, Durao Barroso headed his letter. «I ask you for a constructive approach» to the created situation. And it was useful to indicate him that the fact that Gazprom should assure «a responsible supply» goes «in interest of all», included Russia. In a conference that took place the same day in Poland, the president of the Commission (The Concil of European Commissioners or Secretaries) he said that Moscow exports 80% of his oil and 70% of his gas to the EU. And that «is by far the most attractive market for Russia».

LA ESTRATEGIA NACIONAL DE RUSIA

Un primer objetivo nacional exterior ruso es fomentar la “multipolaridad en la estructura mundial” de las grandes potencias y sus aliados. Buscando que no exista una potencia mundial hegemónica como los EEUU, que le estorbe en la extensión de su influencia y poderío desde su “centro Euroasiático”. Para ello, creará alianzas y establecerá pactos y convenios con terceros en detrimento o en sustitución de aquella potencia hegemónica. Y será un “actor intransigente obstruccionista” en todas las actuaciones que promueva unilateralmente ésta en los foros internacionales (ONU, Agencia Internacional de la Energía Atómica).

NADA TRANQUILIZADOR…

Otra gran preferencia estratégica de Moscú es extender su influencia y ampliar los lazos económicos y diplomáticos con las naciones en desarrollo, especialmente las que tengan “recursos naturales y cultivos primarios”, que sean necesarios para la producción manufacturera, la alimentación y el desarrollo general de las naciones. Ella les ha llevado y les llevará hasta mucho más allá de sus fronteras geográficas de influencia política o estratégico militares.

La pérdida de sus “aliados controlados” del Pacto de Varsovia y del COMECON, tras la guerra fría, sólo le dejan a Rusia buscar geográficamente “nuevas influencias” hacia el Asia central, desde Siria a la India y Vietnam. Turquía es un enemigo proverbial de los rusos. En Afganistán nunca han podido asentarse. Lo cual es una constante socio política para las otras potencias que lo han intentado en otros momentos. También los rusos intentan ganar y mantener en su “esfera política y comercial” a las nuevas repúblicas centroasiáticas islámicas turcomanas y a las repúblicas ex soviéticas eslavas, éstas con casi nulas posibilidades.

En el Turkestán Oriental, se encuentra un rosario de antiguas repúblicas socialistas soviéticas de unos 2 mil Kms de longitud, que alcanza hasta la orilla oriental del Mar Caspio. Ellas son, de este a oeste, Kazajistán, Kirguistán, Tayikistán, Uzbekistán y Turkmenistán. Que forman un conjunto de varias etnias, recogidas en los nombres de ellos, pero extendidas por varios a la vez, de origen turcomano, de las estepas centrales de Asia, y aglutinados también por su pertenencia al Islam sunní. Estos musulmanes turcomanos son unos potenciales aliados de Rusia, en cuanto ésta ponga un poco de dedicación y esmero en atraerlos y atenderlos. Hasta ahora, la Unión Aduanera creada por Rusia incluye sólo a la Rusia Blanca o Bielorrusia y a Kazajistán. Además, Rusia tiene firmados acuerdos militares con Bielorrusia, Armenia, Kazajistán, Kirguistán y Tayikistán. Establecidos en el marco de la Organización del Tratado de Seguridad Colectiva. Y que garantizan a esos países del Este de Europa y del Asia Central una defensa contra agresiones externas o internas. Y brindan a Rusia una extensión de su influencia internacional.

MANDATARIOS DE RUSIA, BIELORRUSIA, KAZAJISTÁN, KIRGUISTÁN, UZBEKISTÁN, ARMENIA Y TAYIKISTÁN REUNIDOS PARA COOPERACIÓN ANTITERRORISTA.

Si Rusia cree que están en juego sus intereses nacionales o su orgullo nacional, se muestra estirada y digna e, incluso, agresiva. Uno de los tics neuróticos de la política exterior de Moscú es la desmembración del imperio soviético hace 25 años. Que muchos atribuyen, no a su implosión, por falta de recursos y estructuras económicas caducas, y de motivación social, sino a abusos internacionales, que se beneficiaron de su debilidad coyuntural.

Cuando los rusos se encuentran con problemas estratégicos internacionales, demuestran más libertad de acción, iniciativa, creatividad y flexibilidad en sus propuestas y acciones. Rusia utiliza todo el conjunto de medios y capacidades de un Estado moderno para adelantarse, embromar, complicar y desactivar las acciones y los recursos empeñados por Occidente. Así, Rusia usa la propaganda de Estado, empleando: una gran profusión de comunicaciones audiovisuales, que desconocemos en España; refutaciones inmediatas de los argumentos rivales; empleo de argumentos verosímiles para negar su relación con los hechos observables; envío de ayuda humanitaria en grandes y llamativas caravanas a las zonas en conflicto. La diplomacia, donde se enfrenta John Kerry, un político interino sobrevenido, con la extensa carrera de Serguei Lavrov, y manteniendo reuniones y visitas con mandatarios occidentales y de los países regionales involucrados; haciendo declaraciones y acuerdos, que terminan suspendidos, protestados o incumplidos; realizando intentos de soborno a políticos europeos de segundo nivel. La economía, como en los casos de China y de Hispanoamérica. Y respondiendo a las sanciones occidentales por su actuación en Ucrania con suspensiones y gravámenes medidos de las importaciones europeas, temidos por la Europa de los mercaderes. Militares, enviando: fuerzas “paramilitares voluntarias”; fuerzas regulares y equipos militares modernos, acompañados a veces por los expertos en su manejo o para su entrenamiento; entregando armas y material militar a sus patrocinados; y realizandoviolaciones difusas” del espacio aéreo de los países al oeste de su frontera europea, más concretamente en el mar Báltico y sus países costeros.

KERRY Y LAVROV…

No todas son bondades y ventajas en un régimen super presidencialista. El poder concentrado y decisivo tiene que ser administrado en pequeñas dosis, para no abusar, ni dañar, ni caer en la tentación de buscar su continuidad indefinida. El despotismo (que surge de la convicción podrida de los mandos de que han “salvado” a “su” patria), la corrupción y el clientelismo extendidos por los círculos del poder y sus aledaños, se vuelven manifiestos y consuetudinarios en la sociedad. La oposición política e ideológica, con sus críticas, actuaciones parlamentarias y protestas callejeras, puede volverse casi insoportable. Para quienes se concentran en planear, decidir y ejecutar en aras del pueblo, pero no con el pueblo. La cárcel y la confiscación de bienes son represalias de toda la vida, cuyo origen se pierde en la noche de los tiempos, en la prehistoria. Empleadas para los disidentes, díscolos y desobedientes y para todos los enemigos potenciales (imaginados o no) y reales del régimen.

En sus relaciones con el Oeste, Rusia distingue dos grandes “espacios geopolíticos”: los EE UU y la Unión Europea. Los EEUU son el gran rival, aún no enemigo. Con el que trata de competir y al que intenta erosionar en todas las ocasiones a las que puede alcanzar. Rusia sigue la teoría político estratégica del mundo multipolar. Que contaría con varios grandes “centros radiantes” de influencia y control. Donde no habría potencias hegemónicas globales, que puedan controlar y/o dominar más o menos, según sus intereses. Esta estrategia global es bien vista por todas las potencias continentales y, aún, regionales, que cuenten con suficientes capacidades y con aspiraciones de proyección y ascendencia internacionales.

Ante la Europa unida, Rusia se ve como un igual. La primera le desborda en demografía y en capacidad económica. Y Rusia tiene a su favor unas FFAA, incluso el Arma de Cohetes Estratégicos, suficientes y con un mando único. Que son apoyadas por su economía y su diplomacia. Ya que cuenta con un liderazgo político bastante monolítico o integrado, como se prefiera. Que, ante una confrontación o una oportunidad surgida, puede actuar con mucha mayor contundencia y rapidez que la burocracia endogámica y anquilosada de la Unión Europa. Y frente a la gran región geopolítica de la Europa centro oriental, formada por sus antiguas aliadas en el Pacto de Varsovia y el Comecom (la unión económica comunista basada la especialización en actividades nacionales), tiene que actuar con una estrategia de acciones sucesivas o de la alcachofa. Porque un exceso de “presión” sobre ellas, sólo conseguiría que se aglutinen entre ellas más; y se vinculen más económica y militarmente a las naciones occidentales…

Pero, también Rusia utiliza la intromisión más o menos velada en los asuntos internos de sus rivales. Buscando crearles problemas sociales y tendencias centrífugas, aún desgarradoras, en su tejido social. Aprovechando para ello la libertad de expresión, que es uno de los valores de la civilización occidental. Así, Rusia actúa contra Europa apoyando a los movimientos disolventes más prometedores. Unos son populistas y antisistema, que actúan contra los valores y las creencias compartidas, que conforman y forman la civilización occidental. Otros son nacionalistas y soberanistas, que luchan contra la integración multinacional de Europa y su construcción. Así, en Alemania se ha materializado una “alianza” entre las Juventudes del Partido Alternativa para Alemanis (AfD) con la Joven Guardia de Rusia. El hombre de conexión entre Moscú y el AfD es su vicepresidente, Alexander Garland. Que se reune regularmente con Alexander Dugin, un hombre con la confianza de Putin. Y los miembros y eurodiputados del AfD apoyan al movimiento de euroexcépticos británicos y obstacuilizan la aprobación de las medidas para la construcción europea en la Eurocámara de Bruselas.

La actuación político militar externa.

La estrategia operativa de Rusia consiste en actuar por medio de aliados “destacados” en un teatro geopolítico dado. Así, emplea regionalmente a esos “actores interpuestos”, más o menos fuertes, independientes y “soberanos”. Para que le den a su intervención en el conflicto, (que le es aparentemente ajeno, ya que Rusia es una potencia media-alta continental), un marchamo de categoría y de legalidad internacionales y de fiabilidad y seriedad ante la comunidad internacional, especialmente con los países no occidentales.

También Moscú actúa en los “límites difusos externos” de su antiguo “espacio vital imperial”. Lo hace “apoyando”, con una gama de posibilidades casi a medida, a distintas comunidades rusas o cristianas, que están “separadas” de la patria. Así, hay algunas repúblicas o “comunidades étnicas”, aparte de las dos que citaremos en el caso de Georgia, que reciben la ayuda oportuna de Rusia. Ellas son la Transnistria, de etnia rusa, situada en el este de Moldavia, que es de población rumana y Nagorno Karabaj, donde viven los armenios karabajos, que está en el centro de Azerbayán, que es de religión sunní, es fronteriza con Rusia y con Turquía y recibe el apoyo de ésta.

Georgia:

En 2008, en su guerra asimétrica y avasalladora contra Georgia, Rusia se sirvió de los “independentistas” de Osetia del Sur y de Abjasia (abrazada al noreste del Mar Negro), dos provincias “rebeldes” georgianas. El pretexto fue acudir a la defensa de esas naciones, que tenían muchos habitantes rusos, para defenderlas de las “arbitrariedades y ataques” georgianos. Ya existían desde hacía años “fuerzas rusas de pacificación” en Osetia del Sur, que inmediatamente tomaron partido por los independentistas.

TROPAS GEORGIANAS ABANDONAN UN VEHÍCULO A LAS AFUERAS DE GORI.

Ucrania:

Siguiendo sus estilos directos, imperiosos y operantes, a mediados de diciembre de 2013, Putin lanzó un fuerte órdago a Ucrania, para que pasara a formar parte de la “esfera de coprosperidad” rusa: le ofreció bajar un 33% el precio de cesión del gas ruso, del que Ucrania es receptor y revendedor. Y, para salvarle de la quiebra financiera y no tuviera que lanzarse para ello en manos de la Troika comunitaria, le cedería hasta $15 mil millones en créditos blandos. Pero, en Ucrania los problemas socio políticos surgidos han llevado a una fortísima polarización del país, formándose dos mitades casi antagónicas. Donde la parte al oeste de Crimea, quiere alejarse de Moscú y la mitad al este de esa península, busca estrechar los lazos con Rusia. Ucrania es por historia y por demografía parte de la Europa limitada al este por los Urales. Y Ucrania es por oportunidad política y momento histórico, parte de la Europa democrática y liberal centro occidental. Que forma junto con los Estados Unidos, que actúa como el otro “polo vibrante” fundamental al otro lado del Atlántico, la “civilización occidental”.

Para Rusia, Ucrania es algo más que un aliado estratégico. Ucrania es parte de la esencia nacional rusa. En Ucrania nació hace muchos cientos de años, el gérmen fuerte y prometedor de la nación rusa, la Rus. Y Rusia ha apostado fuerte. Intentando volver por sus derechos, tradiciones e influencias. O se tendrá que contentar con convertirse en un “estado nación”, sin “esferas de coprosperidad” dependientes, participativas y ventajosas para todos. O sea, una “potencia regional” o de segunda clase, como la denominó el presidente Obama a los inicios de esta crisis.

Desde la primavera de 2014, la oposición armada de la Novarussia (así autodenominan los separatistas prorrusos a su territorio de la cuenca del Donbass y zonas adyacentes) es apoyada por los rusos. Que les envían abiertamente equipos militares (entremezclados a veces con convoyes de ayuda humanitaria para la población civil de la región); grupos de “voluntarios” internacionalistas: cosacos, rusos, incluso veteranos chechenos prorrusos; especialistas (ingenieros, artilleros, instructores, servidores de cohetes de corto alcance y antiaéreos, fuerzas de élite) para las tareas militar de nivel superior. Y que presionan a los ucranianos centrales en la frontera común con movimientos y estacionamientos de sus tropas motorizadas, al oeste de Rostov sobre el Don. Es de señalar que la república de Novarussia no es reconocida internacionalmente. Los “rebeldes nacionales” y el gobierno central de Kiev, con el presidente Petró Poroshenko a la cabeza, han seguido hasta ahora una estrategia operativa del tira y afloja, del “cachumbambé” estratégico. Donde todo está bastante medido y razonablemente controlado. Para ir avanzando cada parte por pasos cortos y contados. Sin que se les desboque irreversiblemente el animal de la guerra abierta entre naciones y alianzas. Y así estamos y seguiremos por bastante tiempo. Así, los puntos de los Acuerdos de Minsk están desleídos y en «stand by» o espera neutralizada. Buscando que no se rompan los mismos, por las continuas pequeñas violaciones de la tregua acordada por las partes.

 

POROSHENKO Y PUTIN…

Un gran problema se plantea ahora, no sólo a Ucrania, sino a sus vecinos al Este y al Oeste. Y es conseguir que las fuerzas hoy antagonistas e irreconciliables, que se enfrentan en Ucrania, desgarrando su patria, se conviertan en fuerzas complementarias y necesarias entre sí. Y es una gran labor conjunta, desinteresada, con altura de miras y dirigida por estadistas, la que hay que desarrollar para conseguirlo. De no conseguirse esa fusión de intereses”, la alternativa sería mala para todos, nacionales y vecinos cercanos y lejanos. Y la herida sólo se cerraría en falso y por un tiempo imprevisible.

Siria:

Desde alrededor de primeros de julio de 2015, los rusos han estado incrementando su presencia militar directa en Siria. Sus fuerzas armadas se han instalado principalmente en la Latakia, cubriendo los alrededores de Tarsus, su única base naval en el Mediterráneo y su aeropuerto militar. Incluyen cazabombarderos, helicópteros de ataque y de movimiento tropas y rescate (con un centener de aparatos siempre operativos), aeronaves no tripuladas de exploración y bombardeo y las unidades terrestres correspondientes de apoyo y de seguridad de los mismos. Y ahora, desde finales de septiembre, están bombardeando las posiciones de los rebeldes armados al régimen de al-Assad, al suroeste de Alepo; en la Latakia; junto a Hama, Homs y Damasco, en la cuenca del Orontes; en la provincia de Idlib y en la zona turcomana junto a la frontera; en Raqqa y otros enclaves del EI, en el noreste del país y en el gran desierto del este, recuperando Palmira a fines de marzo de 2016, que cayó en mayo de 2015 en manos del Daesh o EISI. Un portavoz del Ministerio de Defensa ruso declaró que “no operarían allí indefinidamente” y que calculaban que necesitarían “unos 100 días” de ataques. Estos días se han doblado, hasta casi la primavera de 2015, antes de que Putin iniciara un repliegue parcial y suficiente de sus medios militares. Los peshmergas kurdos del YPG, los aliados nacionales de los EEUU, desplegados por toda la frontera centro oriental con Turquía, no han sido molestados por los rusos. Entre los que han sufrido sus inesperados ataques están las fuerzas irregulares del Frente al-Nusrah para la Liberación de los Pueblos de Oriente, la filial nacional de al-Qaeda. Tan peligrosos e ideológicamente radicales como los muyahidines del Estado Islámico, pero menos crueles y menos capaces militarmente.

A los reproches de algunos países occidentales contra esa intervención, Putin y Lavrov arguyeron que la “Coalición multinacional de loa 60 aliados” venía bombardeando a los yihadistas salafistas desde septiembre de 2014, sin tener para ello un mandato de la ONU. Claro que la coalición de Obama atacaba en Irak, con el “permiso previo diario” y teórico del gobierno iraquí. De hecho, el general de cuatro estrellas James Terry, que es el jefe de las fuerzas estadounidenses en Irak desde noviembre de 2014, actúa como un interlocutor inmerecido por su alta graduación, con el gobierno y las desprestigiadas fuerzas armadas y milicias iraquíes. Pero los ataques sobre Siria de los aliados no contaban con la aquiescencia de su régimen y se dirigían operativamente a apoyar a los peshmergas y debilitar al EISI. Destaquemos que los rusos, según se han justificado los citados gobernantes, “son muy educados y están operando en Siria por invitación de su gobierno”.

Es de recordar que Siria fue durante décadas la aliada en el Oriente Medio de la URSS, y hoy, de Rusia. Y que Siria fue también considerada durante décadas un estado terrorista antioccidental. Del estilo de Corea del Norte. Que inundó literalmente toda la región geopolítica islámica de los fusiles de asalto AK y de los lanzagranadas de carga hueca RPG, para los grupos guerrilleros de “liberación popular”.

AMIGOS PARA SIEMPRE…

Rusia quiere recuperar su protagonismo y el respeto internacionales. A pesar de sus menguadas capacidades demográficas, económicas y estructurales. Y su desprestigio democrático y político ganado con el conflicto de Crimea y Ucrania. Pero, con la intervención militar en Siria, Putin ataca la raíz del problema de los huidos sirios: que es la presión de una guerra civil cruel y larga sobre ellos. Y le permite tranquilizar a los europeos con la contención a corto plazo de la invasión masiva y continua de aquéllos. Buscando una atenuación de las sanciones económicas de la Unión Europea al gobierno de Putin por sus actuaciones descaradas en Ucrania.

Rusia también apuntala y da un fuerte espaldarazo al régimen sirio con su intervención. Tras 5 años de guerra, el Ejército Nacional Sirio está depauperado por una sangría de más de 70 mil muertos, sufrir continuas deserciones hacia los distintos grupos rebeldes (desde el Ejército Lible Sirio a los grupos yihadistas) y tener grandes dificultades para movilizar reclutas. Los soldados en filas en 2015 ascendían a unos 305 mil y cuentan con unas reservas teóricas de 450 mil hombres. Las milicias enviadas por los chiíes de Hezbolá en el 2014 para apoyarlos no han sido suficientes para cambiar el rumbo de la guerra contra al-Assad. El gobierno ya no tenía hombres suficientes para realizar unas eficaces operaciones de contrainsurgencia, contra los rebeldes armados que le acosaban desde numerosas y fraccionadas “fajas de ataque” en toda la geografía siria. Sobre todo, al faltarle los “especialistas” y medios de la artillería y de la aviación de ataque a tierra con precisión.

Obama dijo: “el liderazgo moral es un arma mucho más poderosa que la fuerza bruta”. Esto es cierto, cuando los interlocutores atañidos poseen y exhiben las mismas virtudes ciudadanas que un demócrata. Pero, cuando se trata de fieras, de abusones, de energúmenos, de ventajistas arribistas, de gentes que aún perciben la fuerza como el instrumento del más fuerte, esto no vale. No importa en el nivel social en el que se encuentren. El liderazgo es convencer, dirigir con el ejemplo, atraer a las personas hacia sí, por puro placer, afinidad o misión. Para realizar una labor conjunta en beneficio del grupo social al que se pertenece.

Y ese rol social lo ha abandonado Obama en Siria. Y también hace tiempo que lo ignora, por dejadez o incapacidad y falta de conciencia de su identidad, la Unión Europea. A la que no se la espera en estas lides y por estos lares. Pero, la cosa política tiene horror y abomina de los “vacíos”, de las “ausencias”. Y, así, ha sido atraido por la succión de ambos, el aprovechado de Putin, deseoso de protagonizar otro episodio internacional más. Para los que su pueblo, desde primeros de 2014, lo respalda orgullosamente. Para compensar su depauperada renta nacional y su menguante demografía, Putin les da protagonismo internacional y orgullo nacional.

  PUTIN Y XI JINPING EN PEKÍN, TRAS LA FIRMA DEL CONTRATO GASÍSTICO.

El 14 de marzo, Putin comenzó a desmontar su despliegue militar en Siria. Pero lo dejó lo suficientemente capaz para que el ENS pudiera expulsar de Palmira, unos días después, a los guerrilleros del EISI. Contando con el apoyo de fuerzas de infantería de élite y del fuego pesado aéreo rusos para sus fuerzas motorizadas terrestres. Con ello, Putin se quita en parte de las conversaciones de paz de Ginebra para Siria. Y queda, como único interlocutor de la miscelánea no miscible y esquizofrénica de los rebeldes, el régimen de al-Asad. Porque, si no, ¿con quién van a negociar los yihadistas y el Consejo Nacional de Siria? En esa mezcolanza absurda están, entre otros, el Ejército de la Conquista, los Muyahidines de Siria, el Ejército del Islam, los kurdos locales, el Frente Islamista anti al-Qaeda y grupos locales de “asociados” a alguno. Sólo en la provincia de Idbil, al noreste del país, en la frontera con Turquía se contabilizaban más de 100 “grupos” rebeldes “diferentes”. Y Putin se reserva volver, si considera necesario. Ya que sólo retiró alrededor de un tercio de sus fuerzas aéreas operativas. Y se adelanta a los movimientos de la Coalición, que aún no ha puesto pie en tierra. Aunque Arabia y Qatar ofrecieron en febrero enviar tropas terrestres al conflicto. Pero, ¿cómo se iban a coordinar y operar en un territorio «polihostil» y sin autorización de su gobierno?

ABU OMAR AL-SHISHANI

Operaciones o G-3 de la Oficina central de Defensa del Estado Islámico

Su nombre puede pasar como uno más entre los cerca de mil delegados o visires nacionales, gobernadores, asesores, consejeros de la Shura, jefes de las oficinas centrales y nacionales y jefes de “brigadas” o “kampfgruppen” o fuerzas de tareas del califato del tercer milenio de Abu Baker al-Bagdadi. Y con la rapidez en dar alguna reseña personal suya, con motivo de su “evaporación” en un ataque aéreo de la Coalición de los 65 países el pasado viernes 4 de marzo, junto a la ciudad siria de al-Shaddadi, se ha obviado comentar o citar su intervención en la concepción de la más importante operación del EISI.

El padre Omar el checheno, que eso quiere decir su nombre árabe Abu Omar al-Shishani, fue el “estratega operativo” que diseñó a primeros de 2014 la campaña de primavera/verano del Estado Islámico en Irak. Conocido también como Omar el checheno, nació en Georgia y luchó en sus fuerzas armadas durante su desigual guerra con Rusia de 2008. Parece ser que al-Shishani comenzó a luchar en Siria junto a los rebeldes en 2012, pocos meses después del estallido de la guerra civil. Y se estima que algo más de un año después se unió al Estado Islámico de Siria e Irak. Los EEUU ofrecían $5 millones de recompensa a quien aportara información fiable sobre el paradero de Al-Shisheni. Recordemos que ésta es la tercera vez en que se declara muerto en acción a Abú Omar…

La gran operación de acción, prestigio y propaganda.

El EISI tomó al asalto y sin encontrar apenas resistencia la ciudad de Mosúl durante la madrugada del lunes 9 de junio de 2014, consolidándola en su poder en un par de días más. Mosúl es la tercera mayor ciudad de Irak y cuenta con 2 millones de habitantes. Fue la segunda gran localidad del país ocupada en firme por el EISI. El efecto de atracción y prestigio para el EISI y el golpe de descrédito para los gobiernos kurdo y central de Irak fueron sorpresivos y grandes. La permanente disputa por la administración de Mosúl entre las autoridades iraquíes y las del Gobierno Regional Kurdo (el KRG) influyó en la falta de defensas adecuadas de la ciudad. La toma de Mosúl, a unos 390 kilómetros al norte de Bagdad, sacó a relucir la incapacidad para gobernar la urbe, generada por el enfrentamiento entre el gobierno autónomo kurdo de Erbil y la autoridad central de Bagdad. Los kurdos aguardan desde 2007 un referendo que apruebe la absorción de esta ciudad por parte del KRG.

En este ataque se produjo un avance al combate de varias columnas de camiones ligeros sin protección contra el fuego ligero de infantería (muchos, tipo “pick up” de techo abierto y todos de marca Toyota), transportando al aire a unos 800 milicianos irregulares ardorosos del EISI. Y los 30.000 policías y soldados nacionales que guarnecían la provincia de Niniveh, abandonaron sus equipos pesados colectivos, singularmente la artillería y los vehículos blindados y huyeron, formando racimos de hombres aterrorizados, hacia Bagdad, a medida que avanzaban los “barbudos de Allah”.

Así, a primeros de junio de 2014, el ISSI lanzó una ofensiva estratégica en Irak, destinada a consolidar sus dispersos enclaves iraquíes (al-Ramadi, Faluya, etc.) de las provincias del norte y centro en una unidad territorial única y extensa. Que fuera capaz de unirse geográficamente, sin solución de continuidad, con las tierras sirias del Califato, con sede en Raqqa, en el alto Eufrates. Después de asaltar la ciudad de Samarra, irrumpieron en Mosúl y lanzaron una “acción de área” en las provincias de Saladino y Diyala, en la que los terroristas recurrieron también a sus “juramentados suicidas”. El asalto del ISSI a Mosúl se sumó a los ocurridos sucesivamente en varias poblaciones de la provincia de Niniveh. Confirmando con todo ello las capacidades militar y organizativa y la agresividad cada día más claras del grupo fundamentalista salafista y la gobernanza y el caudillaje de su líder, Abu Baker al-Baghdadi. La expansión del territorio que controla el ISSI, tanto en Irak como en Siria, son la realización de la intención de al-Baghdadi de desplazar al egipcio Ayman al-Zawahiri, no como jefe de al-Qaeda, sino como el auténtico sucesor de Osama Ben Laden.

Los avances de los yihadistas se producían a las velocidades de marcha de sus columnas, según la transitabilidad de los terrenos y la capacidad de las vías recorridas. Porque, antes de que llegaran a la distancia eficaz de influencia, de constituir una amenaza real sobre su objetivo, los funcionarios del gobierno y las fuerzas de seguridad abandonaban sus puestos administrativos y de defensa en aquél. Sin embargo, estos grupos móviles carecían de cualquier de cualquier apoyo externo a ellos, de conexión táctica a ningún grueso o masa de apoyo, y sus flancos son sectores expuestos. Esto es una de las delicias tácticas para cualquier ejército moderno medianamente experimentado y motivado.

Los grupos rebeldes pueden ser cercados funcionalmente y atacados desde sectores convergentes por los batallones de un par de brigadas de infantería mecanizada, reforzados cada uno por varias secciones o una compañía de sus batallones de carros. Y así, batidos y deshechos sucesivamente. Si no ha ocurrido así, es que no existía allí tal ejército. Lo que tenían los iraquíes era un proyecto, una apariencia, una entelequia, una imagen virtual y escandalosa de ello. Sabemos que la sorpresa es a veces inevitable: porque es hija del ingenio propio, de la oportunidad neutral y de la incertidumbre y de la rutina enemigas. Pero un ejército cabal es capaz de superar las crisis, de rehacerse y de vapulear al osado irregular rebelde, que se le enfrenta a campo abierto. Si no ocurre así es porque el ejército iraquí no existe como expresión cabal y cuajada de la voluntad de defensa de la sociedad y del gobierno iraquíes.

El diseño y la planificación de estas operaciones de acción y prestigio en Irak fueron obra de Abu Omar al-Shishani, un jefe entonces del ISSI en las montañas kurdas de Siria. Ya que las fronteras nacionales son para los yihadistas salafistas una abominación, que atenta contra la comunidad universal del Islam, plasmada políticamente en el califato. Creando así un “totun revolutum” de sufrimiento, desconcierto y sangre, donde medrar e imponer ese califato delirante. El Frente al-Nusrah para la Liberación de los Pueblos de Oriente, la franquicia regional de al-Qaeda, empezó a actuar en Siria en 2012, cometiendo los “grandes atentados indiscriminados y aislados” con grandes bombas en la capital y otras ciudades, al principio de la guerra. Los yihadistas avanzan políticamente y medran cuando existen una fractura y un caos sociales en un país. Éste es su humus primigenio, su caldo de cultivo, su medio ambiente propicio e ideal.

El enemigo contra el que planificó Abu Omar su “golpe de guadaña”.

El nuevo primer ministro iraquí, el chií Haidar al-Abadi, acometió a mediados de noviembre de 2014 la compleja reestructuración y adecuación del ejército nacional. Es de recordar, que los EEUU se gastaron durante su ocupación de Irak unos $25.000 millones en el entrenamiento y el equipamiento del actual ejército de Irak, que no parecen haber servido para mucho. Y los “drones” de espionaje y observación de los estadounidenses, tampoco han sido de utilidad. Y todas las escuchas telefónicas y de comunicaciones inalámbricas digitalizadas o no de la NSA (la agencia central de seguridad estadounidense, con inmensos almacenes para el archivo de datos inútiles, porque lo son si no son de provecho), la CIA y otras agencias especializadas en la exploración y observación de la información fueron nulas o erradas, para detectar el cáncer purulento del ISSI. Que se gestó desde casi dos año atrás, y su explosiva metástasis por el noroeste de Irak a mediados de 2014.

  EL PRIMER MINISTRO HAIDAR AL-ABADI

El miércoles 15 de noviembre el “premier” firmó, como comandante en jefe de las fuerzas de seguridad, la destitución de 26 comandantes y jubiló anticipadamente a otros 10. La medida atend a la necesidad de «consolidar la labor de una institución militar, basada en la profesionalidad y en la lucha contra la corrupción en cualquiera de sus formas». Al-Abadi nombró a otras 18 personas como relevo parcial. El premier buscaba también «depurar el aparato de seguridad de los generales y jefes leales a al-Maliki», cuyas políticas miopes y sectarias alienaron de nuevo a la población suncontra el gobierno iraquí. Y dieron alas a los yihadistas, que ya controlan difusamente un tercio del país. Pero, el jefe del Ejecutivo ha evitado ampliar la depuración al ministerio de Interior, controlado por la milicia chií de al-Sadr. «Las milicias chiíes operan en Bagdad (desde su centro en el barrio al este del Tigris, llamado Ciudad al-Sard) con total impunidad, ignorando la presencia de las fuerzas de seguridad gubernamentales«.

La purga coincid con el envío de 1.500 soldados estadounidenses adicionales a Irak, anunciado por Obama la semana anterior y con las primeras victorias logradas en combate por el ejército, con el apoyo de los ataques aéreos lanzados por la coalición internacional sobre las posiciones y concentraciones del ISSI. El general de 4 estrellas James Terry declaró a primeros de diciembre que su principal tarea es el reentrenamiento del nuevo ejército nacional. Se espera que la cifra de militares desplegados por los EEUU en Irak sea de unos 3.100 efectivos en poco tiempo. Y espantado por la enorme incapacidad del ejército iraquí, el entonces jefe del Estado Mayor Conjunto de los EEUU, el general Martin Dempsey, reconoció el jueves día 16 de diciembre que se necesitarán unos 80.000 miembros «competentes» de las fuerzas de seguridad iraquíes, para recuperar el territorio arrebatado por el ISSI, liberar la ciudad de Mosúl y restablecer la integridad de la frontera con Siria. ¡Qué fácil se entrenaron y motivaron los barbudos de Alá y cuanto les cuesta hacerlo a los “militares” iraquíes…!

GENERAL JAMES TERRY

El objetivo de la formación del ejército iraquí es alistar o reestructurar y entrenar a un colectivo de más 200 mil iraquíes, para formar el nuevo Ejército Nacional de Irak. Aparte están las fuerzas de policía y orden público civiles. Los reclutas son contratados tras pasar un superficial examen físico, estar comprendidos en un intervalo amplio de edad y pasar por un filtro “político” local, que avale su no “pertenencia evidente” a los grupos díscolos o insurrectos. Al no existir la tradición de un ejército moderno de reclutamiento universal, se ha optado por adquirir un ejército de voluntarios, intentando profesionalizarlo. Los reclutas del ejército pasan por “temporadas” una serie de jornadas de formación en técnicas elementales de lucha; de endurecimiento físico; de disciplina militar, basada en formaciones cerradas y sus movimientos, para imprimirles carácter; de cumplimiento de las labores cotidianas de vida en común y de convivencia como colectivos uniformados. Las principales tareas son formar someramente a los hombres, que se acostumbren a integrar colectivos permanentes disciplinados y prepararlos básicamente para su formación específica en las unidades de destino. Este período inicial se extiende entre los 60 y los 120 días. Y éste es un tiempo considerado insuficiente. Las unidades de formación del ejército iraquí, sitos en multitud de campos desperdigados por numerosas provincias del centro y del sur de Irak, serán fundamentalmente dirigidas por suboficiales y oficiales estadounidenses.

GENERAL MARTIN DEMPSEY, LUEGO JEFE DEL PENTÁGONO

Delirante, el viceprimer ministro iraquí Saleh al-Mutlaq (un sunní) recomendó reintegrar a los soldados de Sadam en el novísimo ejército en reconstrucción. «De esa manera se podrá derrotar al Estado Islámico en un plazo muy breve de tiempo». Pero, ¿aún siguen vivos y capaces, desde 2.003, los vapuleados y perseguidos restos del ejército de Sadam Hussein al-Tikriti? ¿No será éste el “tentetieso argumental” de los gobiernos iraquíes, al que achacan todos sus fallos, desventuras e incapacidades propias? A sus 68 años, el vicepremier es un veterano en la política del país, donde ha resurgido varias veces. Y se mueve a sus anchas en el gobierno de Bagdad, amedrentado por los yihadistas del Estado Islámico de Siria e Irak.

VICE PRIMER MINISTRO IRAQUÍ SALEH AL-MUTLAQ

Y la corrupción por sí misma no es razón suficiente para rehuir defender y ayudar al régimen iraquí. La corrupción es general, tradicional, arraigada y omnipresente en toda la región geopolítica árabe: desde el norte de África a las fronteras de la India. Sadam Hussein, el partido Baaz y su régimen estaban asentados en el clientelismo, el copago y el terror selectivo contra los enemigos internos, tanto reales como potenciales o estimados. Con la religión (variedad sunní) y los comunes orígenes tribales como criterios de selección, para comenzar a medrar en las estructuras estatales. Y sobrevivieron a dos guerras exteriores, una larga y otra contra una coalición aplastante de países modernos en 1991, y a varios intentos armados de rebeliones internas étnicas y religiosas.

THE SALAFISM JIHADISM.

IDEOLOGY, HISTORY, METHODS, FAILURES

Origins of the Islam and his Expansion.

The concept of the minor Yihad, blood effort in «Allah’s way» does not exist in the Noble Koran. Nevertheless, there exist in it near 50 aleyas that encourage the Muslims to the defense of the community, to the fight against the unfaithful people and to the armed spread of the Islam. Established the main lines, rapidly the political chiefs of the Umma, including the Prophet, threw hand of the instrument that so clearly was offering them and that they needed to life or death. At the beginning of the Islam, when was reigning the jahiliyya (the barbarism previous to it) in the Arabs, in the times of Mohammed, the Yihad was indispensable and inevitable for the defense of the new religion. That was arising in the middle of a stormy sea of tribes and pagan and idolatrous clans more o less nomads, that were populating Arabia. And the Muslims groups could easily be eliminated by his enemies.

But the March (the Hegira) of him with a handful of followers, from Mecca to Medina in the 622 A.D., inaugurated a new age of transformation in the world and of expansion of the Arabic Islamic theocracy. In that epoch, the power in the whole Middle East or, better, the Asia of the Southwest was distributing between the Persian Empire of the Sassanids and the Empire of Byzantium. A few years later, the Arabs had got hold of the Sassanids Empire (644). And they had restricted the lands of Byzantium in Asia, to the center and west of Minor Asia (the Anatolia). Parallelly, they were controlling the north of Africa: in 641 occupied Egypt and they were rapidly spreading up to Tripoli and the Atlantic coasts of the Maghrib and Ifrikia (in 697). Finally, in 711 they invade the visigoth kingdom of Roman Spain and in 732 penetrate in the kingdom of the Francs.

As in any religious primitive community, the Umma was the center of the mandates and Allah’s benedictions. There being collectivly and keenly lived the fulfillment of a monotheistic and simple doctrine. By the side of the mundane interests, the extension of the Arabic conquests, in his uncontrollable advance during more than one century, brought the control over the goods and wealths of the new and numerous subjects and the political and military power over them. The Moslem domain was established by the presence of a governor with his military garrison, in every city or conquered region. The relation of the new subjects with the Islamic regime was establishing and regulating by the payment to the governor of the periodic taxes for the imposed vassalage and the practising, for the moment, of a different religion. The third reason for this dizzy expansion of the Islam, was attainable to the nobles, chiefs and more out-standing Muslims. And it was the distribution of the power quotas that were generating by the domain, the defense and the governance of the new territories of al-Islam, the lands where the Islam was applying and governing.

The sunnism, which follow near of the 90% of the Muslims, also agrees as divine revelation the Tradition or Sunna of the Prophet. The facts and Mohammed’s comments form the tradition. The major or minor rigor in the selection for the purity of his origin and in the acceptance of this tradition, which was gathered and transmitted by his more immediate followers, characterize the four ideologic sunnis schools, founded astride between the VIIIth and IXth century. The most opened and flexible school, the Chafii founded by the Palestinian al-Chafii, died in Cairo on 820 at the age of 53 years, opened an encouraging door for the pacific evolution of the Islam. She also accepts the «sages of the community consensus» and the analogical reasoning or qiijas, as correct routes for the adjustment of the Islam to all the times and places. Departing from his «rural, illiterate, poor and medieval origin and surrounded of hostiles and barbarism».

After the death of the Prophet in 632 arised times in which the authority of a new chief and the rivalries between Mecca and Medina were threatening the unity and the development of the Islam. The first caliph or successor Abu Baker al-Siddique (632-634) affirmed his authority in the community or Umma and consolidated the caliphate as the «religious politician successors of the Prophet». And for it used the Yihad, in the war of the riddas, establishing a regular army, without wages. Omar, called the Lord of the Believers, was the second caliph (634-644). He organizes the administration and the theocratic system, where the military chief of the conquered land is the delegate of the caliph for the civil matters, the head of the Islam and the secular judge. Otman, the third caliph (644-656), of the family of the Omeyas, continued the armed expansion, but was murdered for leaving out the military caste. Ali was the fourth caliph (656-661), cousin, son-in-law and distinguished companion of the Prophet. But, Muhawiya revolted to avenge his cousin Otman and Ali turned out to be murdered. Muhawiya (661-680) was then proclaimed Caliph, initiated the Omeya dynasty and moved the capital of the caliphate to Damascus. His son Yazid (680-683) conquered the supporters of Hussein (son of Ali) in Kerbala’s combat (72 falls), on October 10 of 680. The first 4 caliphs are called by the sunnis the Rashidun, the «rightly guided (by God)». In this historical original stage, the Muslims realized their first conquests, departing from his initial core The Meca-Medina, towards the north, east and west of it.

  HUSSEIN, SON OF FATIMA AND ALI AND GRAND SON OF THE PROPHET.

And then arose the political religious schism in the Islam. The transmission of the caliphate would enter soon in irreconcilable conflict with the shiies. The shiism, in demographic minority always, assumes historically a fatalistic, passive attitude, even of physical suffering for it. They wait for the return of the XIIth Iman (caliph) missing in 874, that will come as al-Mahdi (guided by Allah) at any time of the History, to make triumph the orthodox Umma (the Shiites). And it will have a time of peace in the earth, dominating the shiies in it, as prize to their efforts, before happens the Reappearance or final Resurrection and the Judgment of the men by Allah.

The Salafi Ideology.

Salafismo of «salaf», predecessor or ancestor. As salaf, the Muslims call Mohammed and his disciples: the first four caliphs and the next two generations. The expansion of the Islam in the 7th century assumes to the purity of his faith. Since then, whenever the Moslem societies are sufering an economic, political or social crisis, prominent figures will arise that will praise a return to the Islam of the Salaf. Ibn Hanbal, in the 9th century, gives a literal interpretation of the Islam, based in recovering the ancestors and in the condemnation to the theological innovations. Ibn Taymiyya resorted equally to her in the 14th century, when the Middle East was suffering the Mongolians invasions.

   IBN HANBAL

  TAYMIYYA            

The modern salafists begin with the preaching of the Arabic ulema Mohamed Ibn Abdul Wahhab (1703-1792) who thought that the decline of the Moslem countries opposite to the West, ensues from the oblivion of the original message of the Islam. Ibn Abdul Wahhab preaches the literal and puritanical reading of the Islam, registering in the Hanbalist and in Ibn Taymiyya traditions. Searching «the correct way of acting in the educations of pious predecessors». His sermons were not well received and was expelled from his natal locality, in the Nejd region. He changed to Diriyah’s city and there formed an alliance with the sheikh Mohamed ibn Saud, initiator of Saud’s House. Ibn Saud promulgated the idea of the Islam «wahhabí» as the way of practising the Islam in official form in the country. For his part, al-Wahhab gave the religious legitimacy to Ibn Saud in his conquest of Arabia.

  Mohamed Ibn Abdul Wahhab

Finally, in 1902, the emir Abdul Aziz ibn Saud reconquered Riyadh, in 1924 occupied Mecca and Medina and in 1932, all the Saudi Arabia. This was giving them the control on the Hajj, the annual peregrinaje to the sacred places and the opportunity to preach the wahhabism between the pilgrims. But, the wahhabism was a minor current of the Islam until 1938, when the oil reserves were discovered in the zone. The immense incomes from this new wealth gave a great impetus to his ideological expansion.

The salafi currents are renaissance movements of the Islam, through the return to the original faith, that of the «pious predecessors». They reject everything that identify as «human interpretations after the revelation of the Prophet». They are reformists movements which condemn the practices of the popular Islam (accused of being superstitions) and great part of the ideological Moslem thought, considered as carrier of «innovations». That is to say, «creations of the human reason», that move away from the divine message. The salafists reject in turn the influence of the western civilization, particularly the democracy, the relativism and the laity, that «corrupt the Moslem faith». The salafists become emancipated of the tradition founded by the 4 sunnis schools and they invent another Islam, which they affirm is founded on the Coran and the Sunna. Also they seek to imitate Mohammed in all the acts of the daily life, included the way of eating or dressing.

The imans next the Saudi regime, reject the jihadist way, that tries to impose a Moslem regime by means of the violent and revolutionary action, on having considered it to be condemned to the failure. One of his great figures, from the 60s up to his death in 1999, the sheikh Mohamed Nasiruddin al-Alabani, was declaring that «it forms nowadays part of the good politic, to leave the politic». For al-Albani it was necessary to follow a purification of the education strategy: on one hand, to regenerate the faith, purifying it of ideological «innovations» that remove it from his origins; and to educate the Muslims in this regenerated faith, in order that they leave his religious «corrupt» practices.

The «Jihadist Salafi» or Qutbism.

This current does the Jihad a center of his activity. The jihadism seek to accelerate the liberation of the Moslem countries of any foreign occupation. It is based on SayYid Qutb’s ideas, a theoretic and revolutionary born in the Moslem Brothers. He was sure that the Western Society was sick with individualism and ungodliness. And the Moslem countries would suffer the same thing, if they were influenced by West. And was affirming that the Moslem general regimes were apostates, on having applied lay laws, instead of the Sharia. Qutb’s thought was one of the principal influences in the sects Muslims’ Society or Excommunnication (takfir) and Hegira (migration), arisen in 1969 in the bosom of the Moslem Brothers in Egypt, and al-Qaeda, and his leaders, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Osama Ben Laden. The leader of the Moslem Brothers, Sayid Qutb, was detained, judged and executed at August 29, 1966, for planning the murder of the president Nasser. After his death, the Brothers evolved towards forms of organization and fight inside the existing political system. The actual salafi jihadism is born in the 80s, during the war of Afghanistan against the Soviet occupation. The salafists came from Saudi Arabia met the Moslem Brothers. It drove them to adopt the political speech of the Moslem Brothers and to restoring in him the salafi preaching of SayYib Qutb.

   SAYYID QUTB IN PRISION…

The Moslem Brothers:

The organization of the Moslem Brothers, one of the sources of the modern islamist, has suffered throughout the 85 years lived from his foundation by Hasan al-Banna, all kinds of vicissitudes, displeasures and pursuit. He and his followers tried to create an Islamic network, which was using as counterweight nothing less than to the Egyptian state. In 1948, counting the Brothers with near 3 million members and active sympathizers, began a State pursuit against them. Al-Banna died in a street attempt at the beginning of 1949, transforming he in the «Martyr Iman». The path of the confraternity has hidden itself of the alien sights during long and intermittent periods. One of the politicians tics or mantras of the Brothers says: «Nasser killed us, Sadat pardoned us, Mubarak silenced us». And now they can add «Abdul Fatah al-Sisi disillusioned us».

  HASAN AL-BANNA AND THE MOSLEM BROTHER’S COAT OF ARMS

The ideology, the organization and his action cohesionan the sunni community in a «unit of general action» motivated, effective and resistant. That is of very difficult repetition or reply for the laymen, the not communist atheists, the democrats and other potential enemies.

The islamist not recognize neither the states, nor the nations. Nor, certainly, they do not even accept the liberal western democracy. Only Allah is Legislator of the men. The phrase used by the western chanceries «Democratic legitimization of the elect president Mursi» is a blasphemy for them. Theocracy and democracy are essentially excluded and are actively rejected in the fundamentalist Islamic ideas. The Islam does not admit a political modernity, far from it a religious one. Everything is already legislated and given to the men, through Mohammed, for his personal and in the Believers Community «submissive fulfillment». The Egyptian party Liberty and Justice is a political «appearance», as food for the international gallery, created by the Moslem Brothers.

THE UNITED STATES AND RUSSIA IN THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT

REGIONAL PRECEDENTS

The Organic Structure of Social Power in the Arabic Countries.

The internal relations of the families and the groups of local families and clans, are characterized by incorporating into them certain rites, rules, attitudes and taboos. This set of «social procedures» gather, value and quantify his vital needs, his primary emotions and his beliefs. The Moslem religion is followed in the wide geopolitical zone that we treat. Almost all they are of the sunni branch. This accepts the Koran and the Sunna of the Prophet, his facts and sayings (hadithes) due gathered by the disciples, as the orthodox sources of Allah’s revelation to the men. The differences between they reside in the rigor with which they examine and accept the sources of the Sunna. And this assumption of the Islam forms a part of the social inculturation, affirmation and cohesion of these groups.

The social code, which receives different names according to the countries, establishes certain rights for the individual and demands of him certain social duties, towards the family, the clan and the tribe. The disputes on women, gold or valid money and lands are in the origin of the sustaiined hatreds between the tribes. And they must be sustained up to avenging the perceived affront. The own fragility and weakness of the society demands the appearance of the protective values. These might be the hospitality, the loyalty, the friendship, the scorn to the foreigns, the revenge of affronts and hurts, the individual and collective honor. Each of them protects and enlarges in some measure the human group. The relations are interpersonal, in the areas of the family, the clan and the region. They are projected by the opportunity, the nearness, the exchange of goods and the relation. And they become strong with the loyalty, the respect of the accepted procedures and the time of treatment. And depending on the accumulation of these elementary successive acts. The hospitality takes implicit the reciprocity, when one travels, is alone and is not aggressive. This sometimes is perfected by the endowment of an escort to the traveler in insecure zones. The violation of this «escort» by an assault supposes a serious affront for the clan that provided her. The loyalty between the members of the group, for very unstable that is sometimes, cohesions the group. The honor inflates the autoesteem and the appearance before everybody. The revenge, in absence of a real institutional justice, looks for punishment and then repair of the hurts and affronts real or perceived. The scorn of the foreigns not adorned with good qualities or menacing to the group, seeks to prevent them “a priori” his integration in him, as a form of passive defense. The tied friendship tightens the bouns with the equals and the group. If someone joins these elementary groups, it is an object of loyalty and friendship in a personal way. These values would increase by his action, modes and personal behavior.

TWO SELFISH «ALLIES»…

The natural tribal authority is organic, born from himself, structured in his familiar units or social cells. The smaller and isolated is the social group, the power of his natural authority will be the more moderating and of integration, acting as the first between the «equal ones». In these cases, the meeting of the active members (men, hunters) of the clan in assemblies, yurgas, etc., have the supreme and decision-making value. And it is sanctioning of the deviant or solvent conducts to the group. The local chiefs are like favoured negotiators with the different regional and national governments. They enjoy a personal authority more than institutional. And, sometimes, his decisions can be ignored by the adult males, if they are not confirmed by these assemblies. The more be perfected and advance towards the exterior the society, modernizing and being complicated, the power of this authority will become strong and grow and will spread in economic and political areas of action.

This natural tribal structure gives the real practical value and sense to the loyalties and the mundane interests, always relative and still opportunists, of the Arabs. Graphical, paradoxical (for going abreast against the educations of the Islam) and still excessively, we might express it this way: «My tribe and I, against the world; my clan and I against the tribe; my family and I, against the clan; my brother and I, against the family; I, against my brother».

The acelerated Development of the Syrian Civil war.

From the pacific multitudinous manifestations for almost the whole country that was realized at the beginning of 2011, the social revolt has given an important qualitative step in his development and extension. It has become more radical and has «taken the weapons» against the regime. Extending his «social commotion waves» all over the country, to all the participants, to the neighboring countries and up to the foreign powers

Far there already are the manifestations of the young opponents, which did not see to the violence as an acceptable option of national liberation. Nevertheless, some analysts defend that the illegal executions of soldiers, policemen and civilians sympathetic with the regime began almost from the beginning of the widespread protests. And others attributes this radicalization of positions to the selective and progressive repression of the regime.

  PESHMERGAS IN KOBANI (A CANADIAN VOLUNTEER)

To this joins the increasing islamization of the armed opposition. Initially the manifestations were beginnig from mosques or central places. And then, worship was begun to give to the «martyrs» and using the islamist rhetoric in the communications and declarations and in the name of the irregular revolt groups. From the shout in the first videoes hung on the Network or sent outside the country «the people wants the fall of the regime», they have passed to «the people wants the proclamation of the Yihad by the ulemas and mufties». This raising is not lay. It is a raising led by more or less practicing Muslims of the Islam. Lay is the corrupt and greedy regime of the Assad, where the not Islamic confessions were respected and protected. And that has lost the aptitude to defend and to represent the people. This is the “social justification” of supporting and respecting an exclusive dictatorship, almost always dynastic, in exchange for his class privileges.

IRAQIS TRAINING TO FIGHT HOUSE TO HOUSE.

The government of the Assad and his political equipment have left forming a lot of time ago a socialist and national regime. Since they neither represent, neither defend, nor integrate the particular and collective interests of his nation. Now they only lead and protect the members of the wide social religious oligarchy, that monopolizes and distributes in different degrees the institutional, social and economic power of Syria. The Syrian regime is crystallized, without fluency, so much socially, as ideologically and administratively. And is turning into the rind of a «political social fruit», withered, sterile and empty.

For the schemes of the foreign, calm television viewers in his houses at many Km. from the violent facts, the combats are ferocious. But it resides in that to the enemy who tries to kill or to mutilate you from covered and reinforced positions, first he is softened by the direct heavy fire, you cut his retreat occupying a crossing street beyond and his defensive position is assaulted from the ceiling or from the soil, by successive assured bounds, if he has managed to last so much (very strange). Unfortunately here are of no use the romantic resources of «shoot you first, gentlemen rebels». To obtain the decision and to come to the end, the better thing is to show the teeth from the beginning and acting with determination. Though neither the military men nor the rebels have the doctrine or the experience of the urban fighting…

THE INTERVENTION OF THE FOREIGN POWERS

American Initiatives against the EI.

In September, 1914, the USA coordinated a global alliance of western and Arabic nations to stop militarily the sweeping advance of the Islamic State, before the urgent request of help of Iraq. For it, the allies would not deploy combat ground units. It has passed a year of daily dedication to the air selective bombardment, producing more than 7 thousand air attacks to him over individual targets in Iraq and Syria (combat and of heavy fire positions, command or communication buildings, vehicles, training centers) and a vague number of effective falls, between 5 and 8 thousand militants of the EI, with diverse degrees of training and implication. But, the conceptual and operational coherence of the air allied action, has not managed «to debilitate, nor to degrade, and not even, to destroy», paraphrasing the president Obama, the Islamic State with his actions. Which has counter-attacked lately in al-Ramadi, the Anbar’s capital, removing, by the fault of a sandstorm, the glorious armed forces of Iraq; in Palmira, establishing a projection towards Damascus; in Deir ez Zour, occupying the capital and surrounding the Syrian military forces deployed at the west; in Hanaka, disputing the great frontier northeastern Syrian province to the peshmergas of the YPG and relieving the pressure that the EI receives at the east of Alepo and on Raqqa.

MR. ASHTON CARTER.

The artillery, the aviation, with his heavy and precise fires, allow to blind, disturb, neutralize and still to destroy the groun enemy, in increasing order of hurts and effects. The heavy fires support the ground forces, in an employment of combined arms. And to beat the fortifications, the positions of combat, of heavy fire and of antitanks, the enemy bolts, perpendicularly established to the own advance, and the enemy reserves in the different levels of action and to realize the fight counter batteries. The ground forces are those that occupy, clean, clear and keep in the own hands, the attacked enemy positions. Frustrating the reappearances of the enemy between the rocky debris or the nearby bushes and rejecting forceful and definitively his local counter shocks and his more deliberate counterattacks.

THE HEROE OF THE GREAT TASK, GEN. JAMES TERRY…

In the summer of 2014, the United States began to train to Syrian sunnis young volunteers to integrate them, at a beginning, in the weaken and demoralized Free Syrian Army (FSA). His tasks were to attack so much the military forces of Bashar the-Assad, the National Army of Syria (NAS), as the salafists yihadists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, in the Syrian zones where they were deployed. Reinforcing, this way, the order of battle of the FSA. The training fields of this light irregular infantry were placing in the oriental center of Jordan. Before the recruits’ acceptance, it was established an ideological political filter, directed to detecting possible yihadists or governmental volunteers and that turned out to be a fiasco, for its results. In this training of several weeks also took part, according to the sources, France and Great Britain, and even, apparently, Israeli commands. The initial plan was to manage to train up approximately 5 thousand men, using several batches of recruits. But the attempt got reduced to graduate from the » boots camp» around 3 thousand men, of which, the majority simply deserted. And the rest of the mediocrely formed joined different radical rebel armed groups in Syria.

IRAQIS WILL FIGHT FINE AGAINST THE WIND…

Another attempt of forming Syrian soldiers of lay or moderate ideology was based on a training plan of «up to 15 thousand Syrians voluntaries » on Turkey. Other sources talk of forming 5 thousand soldiers. But both numbers turn out to be ridiculous for the magnitude and complexity of the tasks that would entrust them and for his poorly «combat specific capacity», which would say the expert colonel Trevor N. Dupuy. The date of ending of his «plan» never was ventured by the American oficials in charge. In view of the «deficiencies» previously detected, a very high level of exigency was established in the selection of the men to forming. As consequence of it, only a few dozens of volunteers have been trained since then. And we think that they possess a conviction and motivation flaccid and blurry. It is of indicating the case of the «so called» 30 ª division of the FSA, formed by less than 80 soldiers and that entered Alepo’s zone on July, 2015. In less than one week of «operations», 12 were kidnapped and 18 were hurt, by the irregular of the Front al-Nusrah. It was the first group or batch of Syrian rebels that Washington instructed in the neighboring Turkey. Also was get prisoner by the yihadists, the commander of 30 ª division, Naim Hassan. Al-Nusrah also attacked his barrack at the north of Aleppo, and the rest of the divisional force, around 30 terrified soldiers, ran to sheltering in Afrín, a Kurdish enclave in the north of the province. We think, simply, that the rebels trained by the USA refused to face the salafists yihadists of the al-Qaeda’s franchise and simply broke and got dispersed.

NOBODY IS SHOOTING AT THEM…

This way, the ground forces with could count the USA and his Coalition in this geopolitical zone, to attack the EI in his controlled territory, are: the Iraqi army, who in the spring of 2014, before the Great Disaster, was possessing 200 thousand theoretical men in his battle order; the peshmergas of the Syrian YPG and of the autonomous Kurdish government of Iraq, and the sectarian shiis Iraqi militias, theoretically obedient to the government of Baghdad, but trained and guided by the Iranians. The Iraqi peshmergas received permission of Turkey to cross his territory to attack from the north Kobane’s frontier city, occupied by the IS. Managing to liberate it in a joint effort, including the allied aviation. But, in February, 2015, they were unable to at least harass the «wreckers escorted squads» of the Islamic State, who were demolishing Nimrud’s archaeological deposit, in Niniveh’s province, placed half a way between Mosul and Erbil, his capital.

IN AMERLI, BEFORE THE SUNNIS VILLAGES’ MASACRE, AUGUST 2014…

The shiis militias were activated from the summer of 2014 by the general Qassem Suleimani, sent urgently by Teheran, in support of the shii government of al-Maliki. To compose a rapid containment dike to the advance of the sunnis of the IS. After Mosul’s capture and his appearance in force for all the north and center of Iraq in June and July, 2014. And to realize the enormous task of giving these militias, supported by units of the Revolutionary Guard of Iran (the pashdaran: the army of the guardians of the Islamic revolution), a sufficient action unity and a combat motivation. And to try, by measured, short and successive steps, to be defeating and displacing the yihadistas of the IS, in hard combats, which will be fundamentally urban.

Russia takes an Initiative in Middle East.

From around the beginning of July, 2015, the Russians have been increasing his military direct presence in Syria. His armed forces have principally established in the Latakia, covering Tarsus’s surroundings, his only naval base in the Mediterranean. They include fighterbombers, assault and of troops movement and of rescue helicopters, not driven aircraft of exploration and bombardment and the ground corresponding units of support and of security. And now, from the ends of September, they are bombarding the positions of the armed rebels to al-Assad’s regime, at the southwest of Aleppo; in the Latakia; close to Hama, Homs and Damascus, in the Orontes basin; in Raqqa and other enclaves of the IS, in the north-east of the country and in the great Syrian eastern desert. A spokesman of the Russian Defense Department declared that «they would not indefinitely operate there» and that they were calculating that they would need «approximately 100 days» of air assaults. The Kurdish peshmerrgas of the YPG, the national allies of the USA, deployed by the whole center eastern border with Turkey, have not been bothered. Between those who have suffered his unexpected assaults are the irregular forces of the Front al-Nusrah for the Liberation of the Peoples of the East, the national subsidiary of al-Qaeda. That are so dangerous and ideologically radical as the muyahidines of the Islamic State, but less cruel and less militarily capable.

THE USELESS AND SECTARIAN IRAQ’S EX-PRIME MINESTER.

To the reproaches of some western countries against this intervention, Putin and Lavrov argued that the «multinational Coalition of the 60 allies» was bombarding the salafists yihadists from September, 2014, without having for it a mandate of the UNO. Sure that Obama’s coalition was attacking in Iraq, with the theoretical «previous daily permission» of the Iraqi government. In fact, the four stars’ general James Terry, who is the commander of the American forces in Iraq from November, 2014, acts as an undeserved speaker for his high graduation, with the government and the Iraqi discredited armed forces and militias. But the assaults on Syria of the allies were not possessing the consent of his regime and were operationally going to supporting the peshmergas and debilitating the IS. Let’s stand out that the Russians, as the mentioned leaders have justified themselves, » are very polite and are operating in Syria with invitation of his government».

  OF WHOM ARE THEY LAUGHING…?

It is of remembering that Syria was during decades the allied in the Middle East of the USSR, and today of Russia. And that Syria was also considered during decades a “terrorist antiwestern state”. Of the style of North Korea. Literally flooding the whole geopolitical Islamic region with the assault rifles AK and the grenade-launchers of hollow load RPG, for the guerrilla groups of “popular libration”…

Russia wants to recover his international protagonism and respect. In spite of his diminished demographic, economic and structural capacities and his democratic and political loss of prestige, gained with the conflict of Crimea and Ukraine. With the military intervention in Syria, Putin attacks the root of the problem of the fled Syrians: that is the pressure of a cruel and long civil war on them. And it allows him to calm the Europeans with the short-term containment of the massive and constant invasion of those. Looking for an attenuation of the economic sanctions of the European Union to the government of Putin, for his shameless actions in Ukraine for more than year and a half.

Russia also supports and gives a strong accolade to the Syrian regime with his intervention. After 4 and a half years of war, the NSA is exhausted and impoverished by a bleeding of more than 60 thousand dead men, suffering continuous desertions towards the different rebel groups (from the FSA to the yihadists groups) and having great difficulties to mobilize recruits. The soldiers in ranks in April, 2011, if still are suitable, have not been licensed from the service. The militias sent by Hezbola’s chiíes in 2014 to support them have not been sufficient to change the course of the war against al-Assad. The government already did not have sufficient men to realize a few effective operations of counterinsurgency, against the armed rebels who were harassing it from numerous and different fronts or «assault strips» in the whole Syrian geography.

Obama said: «the moral leadership is a much more powerful weapon than the brute force». This is true, when the concerned speakers possess and exhibit the same civil virtues that a democrat. But, when it is a question of beasts, of selfish, of madmen, of unscrupulous opportunists, of peoples that still perceive the force as the instrument of the strongest, this does not serve. It does not matter in the social level in which they are. The leadership is to convince, to direct with the example, to attract the persons towards yourself, for pure pleasure and affinity. To realize a joint labor in benefit of the social group to which one belongs.

And this social role has been left by Obama. And also some time ago is ignored, by carelessness or disability, the European Union. That is not waited in “these fights in these homes”. But, the “political thing” has horror and abomina of the «emptinesses», of the «absences». And, this way, the opportunist of Putin has been attracted by the suction of both, anxious to lead another more international episode. For which his people, since the first of 2014, endorses it proudly. To compensate his impoverished national revenue and his diminishing demography.

The intervention of Iran in this Middle East conflict.

At the eastern end of the Middle East is the mumified Shii theocracy of the ayatollahs. These, when they want important and rapid results against his neighbors, use the commands or units of the Republican Guard (the Pashdaran). Which is training, equipping and supporting by diverse ways his coreligionists allies of Syria and of Iraq. The Republican Guard is overlapped in the Iranian regime, forming the unconditional and effective military wing of the Islamic Republic of Iran. She, as the Egyptian military men, possess an economic own very wide support. That guarantees them the operational independence and that generously rewards her dedication and loyalty in the fulfillment of his tasks and missions. The “al-Quds brigades” are a special elite group of he Republican Guard. He devotes himself to the espionage and to realize military actions as “deep incursion forces”. And they exhibit the whole capacities panoply for the surreptitious or dirty war between enemy nations. His commander in chief, the general of division 58-year-old Qassem Suleimani, is included in the list of the most sought terrorists by the USA. A detail: the Supreme Leader of the Iranian Revolution, Ali Jamenei, considers him to be a «living martyr of the revolution». Whom he incorporated in 1980, whith 23 years, in the incipient Republican Guard.

«YOU WILL BE A FATHER FOR HIM. HE WILL BE A SON FOR YOU».

After the advance of the Islamic State by the north and center of Iraq and the call of the Iraqi shii ayatollah Ali Sistani to the fight against him, Suleimani was sent by Teheran to activate the shiis militias. That were dispersed after the sectarian war. And Suleimani has obtained in a few months the vertebration of all the Iraqi militias against the IS. It has been the IS that who has extracted from the «shades and underground of the State» the general Suleimani. At the end of August, 2014 he appeared in Amerli, Saladino’s province, where it forced the yihadistas to move back. Iran immediately distributed photos of his general operating. But, after the setback of the IS, the shiis militias devastated dozens of sunnis villages of the zone, as collaborators or sympathizers of the enemy. Which is not a good omen for an evolution without sectarisms of the conflict in Iraq.

Likewise, units of the Pashdaran are also operating in Syria against the sunnis enemies os Bashar al-Assad. Reinforcing the Syrian National Army (SNA) and the weared out and insufficent Hezbola iregular forces.
