The agreement on Iran means a radical reversal of all modern world politics. In contrast, by the way, from the routine Ukrainian wiggles that we have yet to observe for a long time. About the fact that the United States is ready for such a turn, we spoke a year ago. Then some twisted his finger to his temple.
The United States, the world's largest consumer of hydrocarbons, has now completely stopped gas imports and quickly reduced oil imports. According to President Obama, by the year 2020, the United States will become the largest exporter of hydrocarbons. That is, the “geopolitics of oil”, which was served by all the American foreign policy and military doctrine that was still in force, is becoming a thing of the past. And with it the whole system of relations, alliances and military-political presence.
French political scientist orientalist Thierry Maysan: “Since the country is in crisis, Obama is trying to find a new balance point in the world. He is well aware that the status of the main and only world power costs the United States too much. Therefore, Obama wants to return to the old type of relationship and achieve a full-fledged agreement with Russia not only in Syria, but throughout the region. "
Notice, Maysan said this long before the U-turn in Syria. Not like Iran. Although this is essentially the same thing. Now everything just falls into place. As well as the sudden cooling of American relations with Saudi Arabia for some, which they took care of in exchange for oil guarantees.
Thierry Maysan: “But now the situation has changed dramatically - the Americans are able to provide themselves with petroleum products. To support the Saudis means to discredit themselves, because these people hate everyone. Therefore, the old Pentagon’s plan came out, titled“ Saudi withdrawal from Arabia ”.
It is no secret that precisely the flood monarchies were the motor and material propeller of the anti-Iranian and, accordingly, anti-Syrian hysteria of the West. Whole strata of American and European, especially the elite, tightly worn by the Saudi and Qatari loot have been formed.
To incite the West against Iran, to incite it into the Sunni-Shiite war for supremacy in the Islamic world is the Saudi's only hope of survival. There is no such hope for today. Therefore, the outlined, it seems, wonderful Saudi-Israeli alliance is an alliance of losers who did not fit into the general line of the "Washington regional committee." The Saudis are unlikely to help. And Israel is a pity.
The Stratfor Research Center, which experts say is close to a variety of intelligence agencies, called the deal with Iran a "landmark shift in geopolitics in the Middle East." Two and a half years ago, its founder, George Friedman, pointed to the American tradition of "redefining problems", which includes the possibility of alliances with deadly enemies for the sake of US interests, citing Roosevelt's alliance with Stalin, Nixon's decision to draw closer to China. "American история, wrote Friedman, is full of cynicism at the conclusion of unions. To resolve seemingly unsolvable strategic dilemmas. "
That's exactly what we talked about. About the turn of Americans from marasmus to cynicism. This is a very positive trend. This is the necessary prerequisite for the current successes of Russian diplomacy.
