Military Review

US loses the Middle East and will soon lose Eurasia


Who could have imagined 10 years ago that the United States would declare veiled ultimatums to Iran in response to large-scale military actions against one of its allies? It is already clear that Washington is clearly afraid of the consequences and is acting extremely cautiously, more than destroying the remnants of its authority in the Middle East. The region respects force, and therefore today Russia is quickly and driving the Americans out of here. And if it goes on like this, sooner or later, the States will have to leave Eurasia.

A series of continuous lesions.

2015 was a turning point for American foreign policy in the Middle East. It was then that Russia returned to the region, showing everyone that everything will continue to happen here, taking into account its interests. Then to many, including in Russia itself, it seemed an adventure, doomed to failure. There was a discussion of the topic: how the United States will punish the presumptuous Moscow? But exactly the opposite happened.

For two years, Putin has not only failed to get out of Syria, but also created a new political matrix of the region, where Washington is the “third odd”.

Moreover, it cannot be said that the United States was doing nothing and was not trying to turn the tide in its favor. Downed Russian Su-24, chemical attacks in Syria and flexing, all the usual American baggage of provocations and threats were used. But all these attempts were blocked by Russian military and diplomats.

As a result, we see that today practically all significant countries of the region, and especially Turkey, have rushed into the Russian camp.

And the biggest annoyance of recent weeks for Washington was that their faithful ally in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, actually washed their hands and showed that it is ready to cooperate with any winner, even if it is Russia.

Historical King Salman’s visit drew a line under decades of tough confrontation between the two countries and opened a new chapter in their relationship, which remains to be written. This will not happen immediately, there will be difficulties, but the most important step has already been taken.

As a result, American plans to reformat the region were at risk. Kurdistan, which the Americans have been creating for a long time and thoroughly, today is not only in complete surroundings and actual blockade, but also under the threat of physical destruction.

This became the red line after which Washington should have acted so as not to become a mockery. Why did the Americans, who ten years ago were the undivided rulers of the region, find themselves in such an unenviable position?

The policy of betrayal and its outcome

Blame the two-faced and contradictory foreign policy of Washington. First of all, the fall of its prestige in the world and specifically in the Middle East, the United States is obliged to themselves. The Arab Spring, which began in the 2011 year, pushed many old and experienced partners away from Washington.

Suffice it to recall the fate of the former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who, thanks to his American allies, ended up in prison in his old age, and nearly ended his days in disgrace on the scaffold. And who is being tried in the US today for the 2001 terrorist attack of the year? The Saudi princes, when they agreed to help Washington in this matter, did not at all assume that they would be extreme.

And it was the State Department that blessed Islamic radicals to smash Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Syria to pieces. And almost everywhere they succeeded. It is the United States who are carrying out plans to restructure regional borders and actually dismember many countries in the region, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Iran.

Is it any wonder that they have gone over to Russia? In my opinion, the question is rhetorical. Moscow, in turn, stands for the inviolability of regional borders. She is for returning peace and stability here, which in turn means for her the safety of her southern cordons. It is Washington’s policy and mutual interests that push the countries of the Middle East one by one “into the clutches of Moscow” today. So, Russia has returned here seriously and for a long time, and the United States will have to either leave or seriously make room.

Washington's Desperate Move

The ultimatum sounded the other day from the lips of Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke is an act of despair.

“Terrorist organizations, ISIL or others, want to carry out an explosion similar to the one they carried out on September 11. They want to shoot down the plane, the intelligence clearly speaks about it. ”

All those who need it, perfectly understood to whom this promise is intended.

Diplomats are warned about future terrorist attacks usually wrong, but through secret channels of communication.

Here was a hint to Tehran, if he does not stop, he will be accused of what he did not commit, as it was once before in the 2001 year with Afghanistan.

It is obvious that not only Moscow, Tehran and Ankara, but also the countries of Europe and the monarchy of the Middle East, are not thrilled by such a development of events. After all, a new big war will hit first of all on them. Berlin and Paris do not need new millions of refugees, and Qatar and Saudi Arabia do not need burning tanker torches and exploding gas carriers in the Persian Gulf.

It will be interesting to observe the development of events. Indeed, unlike the duped population, politicians understood Washington’s message perfectly well and will desperately try to prevent the start of a new conflict.

Unexpected result

As a result, Washington can get the opposite result. Instead of returning his influence in the region and the allies, he can achieve even greater convergence of the positions of Russia and the countries of the Middle East. And it will be a real disaster for him.

Europe and the Middle East simply have no choice. They will be forced to make a closer alliance with Moscow and Beijing and attend to the protection of "New Eurasia", which many of them have since recently sincerely hated.

So, we see that the United States, having got into an unaccustomed difficult situation and without correctly calculating the steps of the enemy, makes a mistake after mistake. Obviously, the problem here is not in one or several wrong decisions. The problem is clearly systemic. And we will talk about this in one of the following articles.

    As a result, we see that today almost all the significant countries of the region, and first of all Turkey, have fled to the Russian camp.

    ... I think this is the main indicator of the Darkness’s ongoing foreign policy, in turn (and if in the classics, they know who they are) ... we have suffered for so long .. angry

    sooner or later, the States will have to leave Eurasia.

    Of course, this option is the best for this region. But in order for the United States of its own accord to leave from somewhere, at least a second Vietnam is needed for this.

      They will not pull the second Vietnam — they will tear themselves. But sticks in the wheels will put to the last. For us, the main task is to establish a peaceful life in the controlled territory.
      In short, the theory of controlled chaos has not justified itself.

      Vietnam doesn’t need ... It’s enough to connect the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf with a canal. Like Suez, but going through Iran. All aircraft carriers and US bases in the Persian Gulf will be under eternal threat. And Turkey will understand that there are NO irreplaceable.

    In the morning I go to VO, the site has 27 articles. Of these, two-thirds, in one form or another, are dedicated to the United States. This is no longer a phobia, this is a clinic. Frantic propaganda, which even in the days of the Union was not. The site has become a clone of the Censor.
    What will change in Syria after the victory over ISIS? Yes, everything will return to square one! Civil war and territory divided into spheres of influence. Only to this were added the Turkish army and the US base, which was not there before. Any of the significant opposition groups recognized the central authority? No. Even the suburbs of Damascus still can not clean. In Syria, nothing has yet ended, everything is just beginning, and we ourselves are already singing the differents of love, and we are burying America again.

      Taki, the elections on the nose. Now only about victories and successes. We even have partial compensation (indexation) of what inflation has already taken away from the "successful economy" is called an increase in pensions and wages. laughing If everything is better than in Ukraine, then why does the ratio of the ruble to hryvnia not change? Is it because our crooks are common? belay

        The ruble itself does not mean much. It is important how much you can buy for these rubles. If you compare Ukraine and Russia 2013 and 2017 of the year, you will see the difference. But you just want to moan, not to compare numbers. Right?

    The main successes of the Russian Federation are the reduction of social programs and the comprador type of economy. All. Even what is supposedly built from super objects East, etc. it is such a fiction. There is no qualitative breakthrough in one of the areas. There is a systematic trade in resources, the replacement of the Russian population by more controlled Asians and a decrease in the level of development of the main layers of the population. Goebbels’s formula to reduce the population of Russia to a level sufficient to service mines continues. The eternal song about catching up and overtaking already got it. With the hands of Russian soldiers, they dunked the most odious group and now they will surrender their victories to the owners.

        Yes, everything is much more prosaic: here on the site half of the nicknames are just trolls. It just so happened at this site. Trolls are identified by a brightly negative assessment of the authorities and affairs in Russia, but at the same time, they DO NOT have a PERSONAL sincere attitude to the situation, they simply don’t have it, they are pros ... Because they are professional troll manipulators, they are paid for it. Nothing personal, just such a job ...

        And they have such an opportunity to turn around here, because there are a lot of people, especially "patriots", mostly "red" shades, who sincerely merge their negativity with respect to the Russian authorities, its system, without realizing that they feed troll parasites while here, that is, they feed essentially their own enemies.

        A lot of trolls have fake IP addresses; for many, they can change several times a day. That is, on this site, NATO’s cyber army professionally operates, parasitizing on negative sentiments regarding the current government and the political system of Russia among the “red patriots”, mostly former SA officers who have not recovered from the shock of 1991, the trolls skillfully howl, pretending to be “our own” (this is the most effective method of manipulation), inciting any negative on the same topics from the training manual, creating the effect of the crowd, mass character, to which many sincere participants are being led. So it works ...

    East is a delicate matter. Squeezing stripes out of the region, we get sooooo big haemorrhoids because everyone immediately grabs each other there. Most likely, everything will end with Syria’s help. The Yankees will bargain on areas of influence, after which they will be removed from Ukraine, and we will not expand its influence on the Arabs, stopping on the axis Russia-Iran-Turkey. And everything will settle down.

    It remains only to wait for the next such errors, but only already .... in Europe. Do Europeans really not understand that the United States is escalating a hysterical situation by intimidating the population, especially Eastern Europe. And after all, if it comes to war, then first of all it is the East European countries where the American missile defense and armored vehicles are located, including and from countries of Western Europe. The United States will remain outside the battle overseas, while the Europeans dragged NATO along with the Yankees to their territory.

    Here was a hint to Tehran, if he does not stop, he will be accused of what he did not commit, as it was once before in the 2001 year with Afghanistan.

    IRI will be denied access to the Persian and Hormuz Gulfs and all right, why capture the entire IRI ....
    and Qatar and Saudi Arabia do not need burning torches of tankers and exploding gas carriers in the Persian Gulf.

    The largest US Air Force and Navy are in Qatar and Bahrain, the British base in Oman, the American and French, as well as the Japanese in Dzhebuti, respectively, at least their tankers in the Gulf will not burn, and no one canceled the pipeline transport, I remember the ATS before 2011 dreamed of being an oil and gas hub ....
    The EU will receive liquefied gas from the good USA, periodically there will be breakdowns and sabotage on the Ukrainian section of the pipeline ...
    The United States goes to the Asia-Pacific region, leaving the BV on fire, as well as its WB there ....
    Europe and the Middle East simply have no choice. They will be forced to enter into a closer alliance with Moscow

    Yeah only, the arms contract for a billion dollars. SA precisely with the United States concluded ....

    Vain joy on the topic of the article. The Middle East region is the central transport hub for maritime communications between Europe and Asia. In addition, very rich in energy. But how to use it if the infrastructure is destroyed and war is in the region? All logistics only bypass, across the ocean, where the main beneficiaries are.
