Israeli expert: After the US abandoned Afghanistan, Israel can no longer rely on them in its confrontation with Iran
Blind faith in democracy has led the United States to a string of foreign policy setbacks that have forced the American leadership to walled off the rest of the world.
This assessment is given on the pages of the Israeli edition of Israel Defense:
- said Israeli observer Shabtai Shoval.
According to him, the reason for the complete failure of the Afghan campaign is rooted in Washington's transition to a policy of isolationism, as the implementation of which the United States is gradually fencing off the rest of the world.
- the author believes, noting that "the deafening failure of the Americans in Afghanistan is just another example of a number of similar defeats of the United States in recent decades."
According to the observer, in the event of Iranian aggression in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Gaza, the United States will not necessarily come to the rescue. Although the American "support" only led to a worsening of the situation. This was the case, for example, in Egypt, where the Islamists came to power, and in Gaza, where the leadership passed to Hamas.
- says Shoval.
The withdrawal of the United States from the Middle East is facilitated by the development of the shale oil industry in the United States and the need to concentrate forces to fight China.
