RIP US Hegemony

The last post below projects the end of US dominance over the Middle-East. Now even part of the Syrian opposition is being converted to the concept of aiding the Russian aim of re-establishing a multi-polar world.

As the US rushes towards an attack on Mosul pushing from behind the Iraqi government, Obama and the Democratic establishment hope for a quick victory to ensure Clinton’s success at the polls. However, like all of the short-sighted measures of US foreign policy, the wide licence given to the Iraqi government, including the chiding of the Turks in their wish to be part of the Mosul settlement, is simply reinforcing Iran in Iraq, as well as in Syria through the deployment of Iraqi Shia militias.
