The United States will begin to restore order in the Middle East


While the United States is going through a serious internal conflict, some of its "allies" in the Middle East have actively used this period to solve their own problems. With the arrival of Joe Biden's team at the White House, policy "Hegemon" will undergo significant changes.


Undoubtedly, Israel and Turkey have taken the most from the 4-year rule of the Republican president. Under the Democrats, Tel Aviv and Ankara will have to moderate their ardor. Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the indivisible capital of Israel, which caused quite justified indignation of the entire Islamic world, with a generous hand "bestowed" on the Jewish state the Golan Heights occupied by him, recognized the sovereignty of Tel Aviv over the West Bank of the Jordan River, stating:

The Jewish state has never had a friend in the White House like your President Donald Trump.

The Israelis have never received such gifts and, apparently, will never receive them. It is possible that such a high level of US favor for its Middle East ally is due to the fact that President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is not only his senior adviser, but also a prominent representative of the American Jewish diaspora.

Under Trump, Israelis bombed and bombarded neighboring Syria with might and main, burning Iranian military infrastructure on its territory. A year ago, the Americans killed the famous general of the IRGC, Kassem Soleimani, and another Iranian nuclear physicist, who allegedly created an atomic bomb for Tehran, was also killed. President Trump has threatened the Islamic Republic with reprisals if it tries to respond to these crimes. US and Israeli militaries in the region have been on high alert for fear of retaliation. The day before, the Pentagon sent six B-52 strategic bombers to the air base on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, which can be used against Iran.

There is a very real chance that in his last days in power, President Trump could start a war in the Middle East. However, under Biden, the US approach to this problem could change significantly. Let us recall that it was the Democratic Party that was behind the "nuclear deal", which was nullified by the Republican, and its restoration may become a matter of principle for "Sleepy" Joe. If so, then there is no longer any talk of a war by a broad coalition led by Washington against Tehran, and therefore Israel will have to somewhat moderate its ardor.

The attitude of the United States towards Turkey will certainly change. Ankara has always been a loyal ally of Washington within the NATO bloc, possessing a powerful army and navy, which is objectively directed against Russia. But under Trump, the "globalist" world order began to be dismantled, the ambitious President Erdogan quickly took his bearings and began to actively promote his own pan-Turkist project. Turkey "squeezed" part of the territory of northern Syria, fortified in Libya, redrawing the map of the Eastern Mediterranean in its favor, with the help of Azerbaijan recaptured Nagorno-Karabakh from the Armenians and got access to the Caspian Sea. The next logical step is the creation of a supranational association of Turkic-speaking countries with Ankara at the head, as well as a defensive military alliance. In addition, President Erdogan has shown an open interest in Turkey's acquisition of its own nuclear arsenal.

In other words, Ankara claims to become the center of a large macro-regional integration project, which will develop and function without regard to the United States. For obvious reason, such “art” cannot suit the “globalists” represented by Joe Biden's team. The democrat already spoke out with great irritation that the United States did not actually participate in the settlement of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, where Baku and Ankara managed themselves.

What was the norm under Trump is no longer acceptable under Biden. Now the task of Washington will be to bring the presumptuous "Sultan" to his senses. And we will watch this with interest.

    I must draw the author's attention to the fact that the Israelis began to strike at Iranian targets in Syria even before Donald Trump came to the White House, i.e. during the presidency of Democrat Barack Obama and will undoubtedly continue to inflict them after Trump gives up the presidency to Joe Biden. So the Persians should not expect that they will be able to feel more at ease in Syria. Whoever sits in the White House, the Israelis will not stop defending their country from Shiite terror, this is not even discussed, Israel's security issues are not resolved in Washington or Moscow. yes

    And that an American plane was shot down somewhere? Killed an American pilot or ambassador? What has been done to make it not beneficial to the United States? What to put things in order? The US is doing well in the Middle East! The Jews are so happy that they can kill with impunity! Now, if Russia puts things in order on the territory in its sphere of influence, then the United States will also have to worry.

      Did they kill an American pilot or an ambassador?

      The American ambassador to Libya was killed under Obama. And the United States didn’t respond.

    recognized Tel Aviv's sovereignty over the West Bank

    Marzhetsky is burning again! This is how St. Petersburg considers the islands of the Kuril ridge to be its own. Everyone cannot learn that the capital of Israel is Jerusalem. It's good at least Ankara, not Istanbul.

    Thus, it can be written that Venezuela "granted" Crimea to Russia.

    Status may not be recognized, BUT
    1. Russia recognized (though it did make a reservation - without its eastern part.
    2. If you do not recognize the capital, this does not mean that T-Aviv becomes such. Why not Haifa?
    3. All government bodies are located in Jerusalem (Knesset, President, Prime Minister).
    Do not want to mention the controversial Jerusalem, write without reference to a specific city - Israel.

      I wanted to say that you were wrong in saying that Sergei burns. In fact, his opinion about your capital may well be. It's not uncommon at all.

      Alexzn... During your more than two thousand years of absence as a state, much has changed in the world. Now Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world.

      Why did you decide that you are the legal successors of ancient Israel, which has sunk into oblivion? In my opinion, you are a modern young state that wants to get its hands on something that does not belong to it.

    Venezuela did not recognize the Russian Crimea., If that.

    You are not right!
    11 countries voted "Against" (speech about the non-recognition of Crimea as Russian in 2014 at the UN General Assembly)

    Armenia, Belarus, Bolivia, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, DPRK, Cuba, Nicaragua, Russia, Syria, Sudan.
    Venezuela reaffirmed its position in 2017 with no UN vote.

    1. The Jewish presence in the land of Israel never ceased.
    2. For 2 thousand years, much has changed and it is not clear why the change in which the Jews return to the land of their ancestors (if you want - to the land given / promised to Israel)?
    3. For 2 thousand years there was no state here (except for a couple of years of crusaders in Jerusalem).
    4. Does Israel say that it is the legal successor of ancient Israel? I haven't heard that.
    5. Jerusalem has not become an ancient city now, it was founded by King David as a capital.
    And yet, we not only decided to return, we returned! Why? Because they wanted and could.
    Israel has existed for 1000 years, the new one has already existed 72. Let's see what happens next, but today we are here.

      Alexzn... Well, offend... Next time, avoid empty phrases like:

      ... The Jewish presence in the land of Israel never ceased.

      The Jewish presence has never stopped in many countries of the world, what next?

      ... For 2 thousand years, a lot has changed and it is not clear why the change in which the Jews return to the land of their ancestors (if you want - to the land given / promised to Israel)?

      And in this phrase of yours, where is the meaning of what you wanted to say?

      ... For 2 thousand years there was no state here (except for a couple of years of crusaders in Jerusalem).

    About nonsense, point by point.
    Jewish presence. What confused your fragile mind? This is a concept generally accepted by historians. Here is what Wikipedia writes - After the victory over Persia in 629, the Byzantine emperor Heraclius solemnly entered Jerusalem. Palestine became a Byzantine province again. In 629-630, as a result of the massacres and persecutions of Jews started by Heraclius, the Jewish presence in the region reached its minimum in the entire three-thousand-year history. However, the Jewish presence in the Land of Israel never completely ceased.
    There were Jewish communities, cultural and religious life.
    Further. What did I want to say regarding the changes? Just what they were and they continue. One of these changes was the return of the Jews to this land. Within the framework of Judaism, like Christianity, this is the promised land, given by God to the Jews. You can treat this point as you like, but we think so and we can afford to live here. In addition, it is the land of our ancestors.
    If there is no state, does it mean that it is ours? Doesn't mean at all! "Our" land becomes when it is returned, conquered, received as a gift. In our case, all this is present. Or did Russia get its borders in some other, miraculous way?
    The real world is not a resort! There are not enough gingerbreads for everyone, sometimes you need to move someone. For two thousand years, the Jews ended their prayer with words - next year in Jerusalem. We are in Jerusalem today, whether you like it or not.

      Alexzn, I don't know why you wrote all this. Your people, then you return, then you are constantly present ... it would be time to decide already.

      Even the argument where you claim that this particular land was given to you by God is doubtful. This land was given to the ancient people of Israel. And then he took it from them ... God gave, God took.

      You have no convincing reasons to refute me.

      You are modern young statewho wants to get their hands on what does not belong to him.

      PS It is not the people who are present, but its individuals. By the way, you will not take citizen Tsivin, otherwise his presence has a detrimental effect on the real estate of the Batalov family.
