The collapse of the hegemon: the United States is no longer able to protect allies

On Saturday, September 14, an attack was made on the oil facilities of Saudi Arabia. More than a dozen drones and missiles hit from the air, causing significant damage to the infrastructure. This incident stood on a par with past attacks on oil tankers and, most likely, will also go unpunished.


The responsibility for the "raid" took on the Yemeni rebels. However, the United States, without any significant evidence, accused Iran of a "mysterious" attack. Later, the opinion of the "hegemon" was supported by Saudi Arabia.

So why is the United States, which used to be able to powder any adversary and for less "misconduct," now confined to ridiculous verbal threats? There are good reasons for this.

Firstly, next year the next presidential election will be held in the United States. At the same time, the current leader, who would not mind staying for a second term, promised not to drag America into new wars. Secondly, even if a clash happens, the United States and its allies will certainly “cost a pretty penny”. After all, Iran is not Libya and Iraq. The state is a regional leader and has a powerful army, the units of which are also able to operate autonomously.

Therefore, in order to save face, Trump can launch a missile strike on Yemeni targets. This will be followed by a statement that as a result of the attack, the secret Iranian headquarters, which organized a raid on the Saudis, was destroyed.

And while Saudi Arabia has not reached the full volume of oil production, prices for “black gold” are growing in the markets, which, naturally, is in Russia's hands. Especially, given the attempts of the "European partners" to limit our supplies. In addition, the raid may significantly increase the demand for Russian air defense systems. The Patriot didn’t work.

And finally, this incident once again showed that the current USA cannot protect its allies. At that time, as our country confidently acts as a full-fledged player in the "Middle East scene", who has repeatedly proved that "he does not abandon his own."

    They could never have done this, it was rather the other way around, the minke whales, with the help of these allies, defended their interests and always covered themselves with them to strike, they didn’t send their people, but used them.

      They could never do that ...

      But why?

      they didn’t send their people, but used them.

      So they themselves are to blame.
      Then they will analyze the situation, explain everything to everyone, calm and teach. Those who are not guilty will be punished, those who are not involved will be awarded. Maybe they will throw some money on loans for armament and restoration, as well as strengthen their bases in case of repeated aggression (well, or so that they will not be kicked out). But a radical change of course will not be allowed.

        What exactly is why?

        So they themselves are to blame.

        In what

        Then they will analyze the situation, explain everything to everyone, calm and teach.

        Who will teach them there, whoever would teach them, otherwise they will teach someone there, but no, this will not happen.

        . Those who are not guilty will be punished, those who are not involved will be awarded.

        And who exactly is not to blame and for which they will be punished, and even more so, for which they also have to give medals.

        Maybe they will throw some money on loans for armament and restoration, as well as strengthen their bases in case of repeated aggression (well, or so that they will not be kicked out).

        Whoever gives them there, they themselves are pulled from them, if only they give them stripes in loans.

        But a radical change of course will not be allowed.

        But it’s on the radical, they can give money, and then they will take and receive even more from this.

    ... promised not to drag America into new wars.

    The word holds so far, not like a dove of peace.

    ... can significantly increase demand ....

    So the Arabs need to get rid of layered air defense, from American, Chinese, Russian and some other missile-slingshots, on a competitive basis. Buy popcorn and watch who will be able to catch adversary rocket drums. Who missed the complaint and the expense of the world economy at once.

      Glebushka, but of course you wrote it in vain, it’s nothing. And everything else too.

        I am of the opinion that high-tech weapons cannot be sold right and left. This is not good, from there both sarcasm and bile.
        If you haven’t noticed, well. Not my trouble.

          Well, they would have written about it right away, it made sense to stretch it all. So this is no longer a high-tech weaponry, now there is even better because they are selling it.

          This is not good, from there both sarcasm and bile.

          And the money too.

          If you haven’t noticed, well. Not my trouble.

          What exactly?
