Analyst: Washington no longer controls the situation in the Middle East

41
Inconsistent, sometimes contradictory to common sense, US policy led to a loss of control of the situation in the Middle East, said political scientist and journalist Hasan Abdullah.


Kurdish Peshmerga Formation, August 2015

In an interview with Sputnik, Abdullah said that "the West realized too late which extremist groups should fight."

“The United States and its coalition partners did not realize what exactly they want to achieve. The situation went out of control, to put it mildly, "
quotes a political scientist RIA News.

He recalled that "exactly a year ago, Barack Obama promised to destroy the terrorist group Islamic State, but so far the coalition led by the United States seems incapable of stopping the Islamists."

Abdullah notes that “there are no official data on the number of terrorists killed,” and the figure named 10 thousand, called the State Department in June, should be treated very carefully — it’s too optimistic.

The exact number of civilians killed in the conflict remains unknown. “The allies only once admitted their guilt in the deaths of civilians, when in September 2014, two children died in Syria. US Lieutenant General John Hesterman, who heads the air operation, called the coalition’s actions "the most accurate and accurate in stories air wars "," said the analyst.

Meanwhile, in August, a group of independent journalists, Airwars, released data indicating that 450 civilians, including 100 children, were killed as a result of coalition air raids.

          Well, it’s not the barrels of gunpowder that control the burning, but the powder warehouse. It’s just not clear where and when this warehouse will explode. And if it explodes in China, then there will definitely be nothing left of the United States. Since October, China plans to purchase energy only from the YUAN and launched its payment system in test mode. In December, they will have to switch to payments only in it.

        American politicians will never take their brains.
        Just for the reason that they will never have to face the consequences of the decisions they once made.
        It only seems that the loss of “influence in the Middle East” will result in a simple withdrawal of soldiers from foreign countries and their return home. I think that everything is much worse. Having burst into a strange house, the Americans, of course, began to kill. A lot, mercilessly, with white-toothed Hollywood smiles. Carpet bombing, "point" airstrikes, landing. Thanks to air superiority, at first everything went more or less smoothly: remember “Desert Storm”. Yes, there were problems, but do the losses of the Americans go at least in some way to the losses of the Arabs?
        But time passed. Those same "wild", "uncivilized" Arabs learned better and better to fight against such an enemy as the United States. In conditions of total superiority of the enemy in the air. In conditions of a strong lag in technology and the scarcity of material resources, which had nowhere to replenish. And here the Americans, having completely lost their sense of reality, begin to arm the "opposition" with their weapons, support them with money, cherish and cherish ... with military training acquired during the endless war and with the new weapons that they were presented with, Arabs in no time, in ISIS, built ISIS - an organization that incorporates all the previously accumulated knowledge of the Arabs about the methods of war with the Americans. Air strikes? Well, let's scatter around the desert, let the UAVs and attack aircraft chase almost every head separately. Warships in the air? Well, let's go deeper and wait for the landing, which we cut off our heads.
        I repeat: Americans took too long in foreign countries. Now these people know, know how and love to kill Americans and their friends. Cut off heads live - this is the seed. So, to scare the layman, to tell him that his state has done something wrong. I’m more than sure that the new “twin towers” ​​will begin soon, and not only in the United States, but this time not in the CIA, but the real.
        For us Russians, there is also a lot of danger - the Islamites really like the Caucasus, they initially see it as a wonderful and loyal platform for attacking the northern giant.

      America doesn’t care if it controls the situation or not in the Middle East! Controlled chaos or uncontrolled is the main chaos! This is Washington’s goal! Everyone has problems, except America and the bonuses there are sitting and rubbing their hands - arms sales are growing, instability in oil markets is generating fabulous profits on exchanges, Europe is suffocating from refugees, so its economy roll to the bottom, Russia is drawn into a mess ....! Believe me, comrades, there smart uncles twist it all!

      Oh yes, and all calls for the fight against terrorism are hypocrisy.
      The USA is the main terrorist, Europe is in the wings, though the brains of the European sixes did not have enough to calculate the game, even a couple of steps forward.
      It is ridiculous now to observe how they are trying to rake their own kaku, and the states, it seems, have nothing to do with it. laughingStanding aside giggle, assent, sympathize ...

    “Just a year ago, Barack Obama promised to destroy the Islamic State terrorist group, but so far the US-led coalition seems unable to stop the Islamists”

    Words and an officially named goal are one thing.
    True goals are different. The Times has recently called Assad the main goal for today.
    How many more major US goals under the cover of the fight against IS created by them, only they know. The rest can really assume and draw conclusions.

      Yes, Russia has taken part of the control into its own hands, it can also share the rest with decent people, but not with the USA! Ever so far, it will be enough for them to sharply narrow down their opportunities for establishing lawlessness throughout the BV. And the fact that it is possible and necessary to fight this ISIS trash, now Russia, in a coalition with decent statesmen, will show HOW this should be done.

    For Washington, the main thing is to unleash a conflict and, as the best option, by strangers. And to rake shit after him (Washington) is the fate of others. It’s not a lordly thing to pay with your blood and money for what you yourself have done.

    I don’t think that the situation has gotten out of control, rather this chaos with the destruction of statehood, military and terrorist operations and actions without end and end, with the mass death of people and their outcomes in search of salvation to other countries is the goal of US policy, which successfully achieved. The United States creates arbitrariness throughout the world, not without reason believing that the troubles they have created do not touch them, because they are separated from the rest of the world by an ocean that few people can overcome.
    And you can say and say anything, not really admit your criminal intentions, and before whom you admit, they are confident in their exclusiveness to rule the world, imposing an idea of ​​their right to supremacy and neglecting the right to life of entire nations.

    Stupid analyst, if he thinks so. The USA and the IG continue business relations. "Analyst" represents the IG as a bunch of cutthroats, which is shown on TV. This is the tip of the iceberg. The IG has a well-developed administrative apparatus, educated people from all over the world work there. Media reports that the engineer of the European energy company went to fight in the IG is ridiculous - he went there to work. IG trade with other countries. The same Turkey, which is at war with the Islamic State, buys oil from them, because there is none of its own, and the demand is great, and cheap too. And you think what it pulls with a stream through the Black Sea? There are alternatives so far.

    This is a focused policy. Everything suits them and they control the process of "non-control". While the Middle East, North Africa, Ukraine are blazing, US GDP growth of about 2%, unemployment is declining, the number of jobs is growing and this is after the crisis. And these are the main indicators of the existence of any state, and even more so the USA.
