America's Disgraced Hawks Turn to Middle East Plan B (Al-Iraq News, Iraq)


"The makers of these policies, past and future, are still present in the center of decision making. They have decided to further invest in their failed experiments, modifying their tactics by setting out a new U.S. approach to the region, which has already been set in motion. In practical terms this will lead to elevated U.S. dominance by immersing the region in decades-long wars …"

The new Iraq looks alot like the old: a policeman in Sadr City, Baghdad, near burning vehicles just after one in a series of bombs exploded in the Shiite stronghold, May 13.

Obsolete American policies for defense and offence were geared to confront the following threats: Islam, China, a scarcity of energy sources, the dwindling population of citizens in the industrialized countries, and the emergence economic powers of the BRICS quintet, i.e. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. This required taking the fight against terrorism to its source, toppling regimes that didn't cooperate with Washington, or at least twisting arms, encouraging other regimes toward increased internal political openness, direct control of oil resources by stable allies with good reputations, and through exporting the best American version of freedom and democracy, promoting an image to the people of the region of America as a savior and rescuer delivering freedom and economic prosperity. These policies had very negative results, the opposite of what was intended:


·       Transformed those known as the leaders of Islamist terrorism - bin Laden, al-Zawahiri and Zarqawi - into legendary figures


·       Evoked unprecedented sympathy on the Arab street for Saddam Hussein and Moammar Qadhafi


·       Turned Iraq then Syria into centers for global jihad


·       Created a deep rift between the United States and the Islamic World


·       Isolated the United States internationally


·       Cost the enormous sum of $5 trillion and 5,000 American lives in Iraq and Afghanistan


·       Gave renewed momentum to radical Islamist movements to the extent that they strengthened their positions in stable allied countries like Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Tunisia


·       Is now an ongoing threat to a return to presidential and legislative power for the U.S. Republican Party


The makers of these policies, past and future, are still present in the center of decision making. They have decided to further invest in their failed experiments, modifying their tactics by setting out a new U.S. approach to the region, which has already been set in motion. In practical terms this will lead to elevated U.S. dominance by immersing the region in decades-long wars …

The new U.S. approach is based on the following set of rules:


·       Unleash natural contradictions, religious, national, ethnic and sectarian


·       Incite divisions and separation without any regard to the borders delineated by the countries that emerged victorious from WWI, and even to the countries that emerged as victors of the Cold War


·       Don't strain U.S. diplomacy by focusing on problems that cannot be resolved and offer superficial solutions


·       Create a balance of power that ensures a continuous state of war, provided that such wars remain within limits and don't spread or threaten the that balance


·       Play down the subject of spreading democracy in the region, because that threatens the stability of allied countries. Since each and every election will be in favor of the trending religious authorities, Muslim or Christian. The election results invariably confirm that the main and dominant affiliation is religious rather than national


·       Replace market control of the oil industry with military control to prevent powers like China and Russia from gaining greater control over oil resources


·       Fill the U.S. military void in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Gulf, with an invisible American presence protected by long-term agreements with governments and close ties with local militaries in these countries, which keeps both armies and central governments enfeebled

Posted By Worldmeets.US


·       Maintain permanent military strike forces in central Asia, Turkey, and Europe, sufficiently strong to strike any enemy or adversary, or “quasi-friend” jeopardizing the "natural" balance of power


·       Following its invasion of Baghdad, having recognized the immense moral and diplomatic price it paid with its disregard for international law, Washington was obliged to beg the United Nations to give it cover. Accordingly, Washington will, through fraud and misinformation, use international law to achieve its purposes. If that proves impossible, it will resort to unilateral economic, diplomatic, legal, and technological sanctions


·       Depend on the cover by acting under the umbrella of international forces, and when that isn't feasible, resort to the use of NATO acting under an international mandate, as was the case in Afghanistan.
