The American wars on our region have unfortunately proved that America’s ability to recruit is still large, but its financial deficit has been so high that the capitalist system is in danger, as the world economy cannot withstand 17 years of ongoing wars. Washington’s options are narrowing compared to its strength 10 years ago, Israel is appalled by the act of rising the pictures of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Golan , especially after the Syrian army has liberated the provinces of Daraa and Quneitra in the south. This year, there were strategic developments in the Syrian deterrence equation, where Syria dropped an Israeli F-16 fighter and bombed Israeli positions in Golan, not to mention the two drones that flied over the Golan Heights and foxed the Patriot Defense System.
In mid-March 2007, American professor Anthony Cordesman published an article entitled “The New Strategy in Iraq Offers an uncertain progress to an Unknown Purpose” in which he says: (One of the harsh facts in the search for the” least bad “option is that even if America could find a “least bad” option, it will be still a bad one) adding (One of the lessons the Bush administration should learn is that at a certain level of defeat, other actors dominate events, and American discussions about alternative plans and strategies may be useless.)
Today, a decade after the US invasion of Iraq, including seven years war on Syria launched by America and the West in early 2011, President Trump at the end of March this year said that Washington has spent Trillions of dollars over the seventeen years in the Middle East wars without getting a return.
The seventeen years that the American president intended in his previous statement extend from the declaration of the American “war on terror” and the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq to this day.
The cost of the war on Syria alone exceeded hundreds of billions of dollars, an amount that would have disintegrate solid rock if placed on it, but Syria held up. America and its allies who thought that in a year or more they will be able to impose their hegemony on Syria , has found themselves very far away from their goal until it became a mirage. America has pushed its tools harder ; paying a lot of money and practicing lies and falsification in international institutions against Syria, till it exhausted itself and exhausted the world economy with it.
In fact, it’s not the American tools that have failed in Syria, but America itself is the one that suffered a terrible failure. All thanks to the steadfastness of Syria and the support of its allies. What are America’s options? Has it improved its negotiating position after the outbreak of war in Syria, or is it in the process of damage
limitation with emphasis on the emergence of the following developments:
1) The growing role of Russia as an ally and partner of Syria in the war on terror.
2) China’s emergence as a major trade power troubling America and securing political support for Syria.
Features of an international settlement are rising in the horizon with a geopolitical theater that extends from North Korea to Ukraine to Iran, Europe and Yemen, and the formation of governments in Lebanon and Iraq, ending with the Palestinian issue, the center of the conflict and its essence. While Syria remains the key of such settlement . China also has an interest in removing tension from its eastern edge because tension is the opposite of the economy. While Israel is living the nightmare of Syria’s victory and its return to its national unity and Arab identity, and its adoption of the Palestinian issue. Israel was horrified to see the images of President Bashar al-Asad being lifted in the Syrian Golan after the South was cleared of terrorists.
The axis of popular resistance extending from Palestine to Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran is capable of curbing and containing Israel.
