Ballistic missiles launched by the terrorist “Houthi militia” under Iranian orders, and striking deep inside Saudi Arabia and the UAE, directly targeting the sources of production and export of oil and global energy.. Hitting the “Petroleum Products Distribution Station” in Jeddah, this is happening at a historic moment in the “international system” and a cold war New, but very hot in Ukraine.
Russia was harmed by this war, and Ukraine is a victim of the West’s battle with Russia and not only a victim of Russia. The second victim is the European countries that suffer the most from the Russian approach on the one hand and from the weakness of American interest in this suffering on the other hand, and Germany as a model for this European awareness returns to spend on Defense, and the German Defense Minister says: “We saved a lot of money and it’s time to spend on defense.”
A serious punishment, one of the ones that were applied against Russia quickly and comprehensively, if applied against Iran and the Houthis, would have deterred them, but Western countries do not do, rather America raises the “Houthi militia” from the classification of terrorism, and plans to raise the Iranian “Revolutionary Guard” from the classification of terrorism, this is not Allied policies and behaviour.
The world is negatively affected by individuals and countries as a result of this Iranian strategy and the American and Western strategy of condoning, and energy markets are turbulent in an unprecedented way, and Saudi Arabia has stated that it “will not bear any responsibility for any shortage in oil supplies to global markets,” which is a very important statement, because it rearranges international responsibilities, and bears A clear message to the world that the Iranian strategy in Yemen will be paid for by the “international community” as a whole, and it is not a marginal problem that can be bypassed, and its harm will be directed directly to ordinary citizens everywhere, and in Europe and America in particular.
In the historic moment of transformation that the world is experiencing today, Iran chooses to ignite the region, mobilize the “Houthi militia” and strike energy markets and supplies, not in the seas and international corridors, but rather in the depths, which will be directly reflected on the prices that the producing and importing countries suffer from the rise and future fears about them.
The timing of the beginning of the weekend for the implementation of the operation confirms that Iranian planning is aware of the international danger. Iranian officials have stated years ago that if Iran does not export its oil, no one will export its oil from the region, and energy prices do not need a long analysis, as they appear directly on the markets.
America sought isolation from Europe’s problems and wars in World War I, and the position of US President Woodrow Wilson was clear, and America’s “isolation” continued until President Roosevelt came and got involved in World War II, and today, under the administration of “isolationists,” America wants to offer “Europe” as a sacrifice in The Holocaust of ending Russia with other sacrifices, the most important of which are “globalization” and “the international system.”
The “normalization of the attack” on Saudi Arabia represents an Iranian strategy, whose continuation was helped by the failure of Western countries to take a decisive stance against it, and America was desperate to sign with Iran in Vienna without any interest in protecting the Gulf and Arab countries. About its usefulness and searching for a historical exit that marks the beginning of new international issues that are taking shape.
Empires are eroding from within or falling apart, as Donald Buchala puts it. The great damage to the “international order,” the attack on “globalization,” and the acceleration of “China’s hegemony” come from America, the leader of the West and the maker of the international system, and this is a reason for contemplation and reflection.
On March 13, the writer of these lines wrote in this space that “globalization with all its products and at all levels has become in the wind because of one crisis, and the contradiction has become great between the interests of the economy and the gains of politics and cultural differences at the international level.” On March 24, the newspaper published The Financial Times interviewed one of the world’s largest financial executives, Larry Fink, in which he says: “The Ukrainian war marks the end of globalization.”
This is in “globalization.” As for the “international system,” indicators have continued for years, but today they are accelerating and escalating significantly. After dealing with Russia and the quality, size, urgency and expansion of sanctions in the way in which the world will search for a better and more “international order” Security and rationality, and the great and necessary needs call for a historical response in one way or another.
To distinguish situations and prevent confusion in moments of international turmoil, the civilized and humane West, the West of science, tolerance and enlightenment, has formed, is and will remain an impressive model in human history, and recognizing this helps to imitate and do the same thing, but it does not mean in any way condoning the sins of Western politics. When Arab countries are targeted directly or indirectly, countries are a top priority.
The American empire, which possesses power in all its dimensions, is pushed by that force towards luxury, and the strength of internal differences pushes towards making this luxury a basis and a center for thinking, politics and strategy, which is what the “liberal left” flounders in, so that this luxury has been transformed into a missionary call through force for the whole world, and this “Dictatorship” pushes the world to resentment and rejection.
“Homosexuality” as an example in this context has become a major actor in America in politics, economy, society, the arts, and even “children’s schools.” Attempts to “preach” it worldwide by changing international laws and exerting pressure on states created a rejection of the majority of people, regardless of their religious affiliations Or ethnic or political, which was expressed by Russian President Putin, frankly and clearly, the reliance on force here created a wide international refusal to participate in the formation of a new international order.
Targeting Aramco in Jeddah, a “power station” in Samtah, and “water tanks” in Dhahran al-Janoub with booby-trapped drones, ballistic missiles and Iranian weapons is an Iranian strategy that does not recognize or respect international laws and does not care about anyone, and Saudi Arabia and its powerful allies in the region and its extensive relations around The world will not stand idly by, and the Arab coalition has warned the “Houthi militia” not to go too far and “not to test our patience,” according to the coalition statement.
Finally, Western weapons are flowing in large quantities and qualitative weapons to Ukraine, which reminds of the Afghanistan war in the eighties, and Germany exports Soviet weapons from its old stockpiles to Ukraine, as Israel and Egypt did at the time, and the quantity of weapons and the speed of their distribution suggests that some of them leak intentionally or unintentionally around the world, which will create wars and chaos, and increase doubts about the “international system”.
