Before other Western countries, the United States of America recognized the right of the Yemeni people to revolt against the traditional imamate system, and supported their ambition to go towards a better republican system and more comprehensive general development.
But the American White House could not prevent the outbreak of an eight-year war between two Yemeni camps in Yemen, a royalist and a republican, one of whom was supported by Saudi Arabia with its gold and money, and the other supported by the Egyptian nationalist Gamal Abdel Nasser with thousands of his soldiers and Soviet weapons at the time.
When I met an American ambassador who is an expert in the affairs of American relations in the world, and I asked him a question in this regard, I was surprised by his answer, whose summary was that “the White House is not necessarily or specifically the one who makes the decisions of the White House.” The United States is doing this.”
More clearly than what this philosopher ambassador said is that “the United States, the largest country in the world, is not like that, but is the greatest company that cannot be made to leave the world without it unless it is financed by importing oil from it and by exporting arms to it.”
After decades, it seems that this American strategy is no longer America’s.
The United States as a country has grown horribly, and its advisory institutions in decision-making have reached the point that Washington needs to think about the inner American world, the world in which the time difference between east and west is about three hours, and in travel between the two directions, New York and San Francisco nearly six hours .
After my travels between more than twenty-eight American states, my constant question with my American friends was what is the need for Washington to be concerned with what is happening in the Middle East if it is a world alone. Rotating crises and exporting weapons.
For sixty years, Washington sold one country in the Gulf what would be enough to fight a world war with tens of billions of dollars, and in the end it became clear that this country still needed the newest American weapon, but more importantly, perhaps what seemed to be that the United States wanted this country to use this weapon. To test its effectiveness, intelligence and accuracy, and not completely to achieve the goals of this country.
In the era of the current US President, it does not seem that the United States has become the United States that we know, nor the international relations between it and the world will remain the one we know.
It is true that Washington is not in the process of withdrawing from itself, but it has a huge societal division, and a large number of the poor, and therefore its priority today is to repair these cracks in its society, and support its poor to enable them to pay the rent of houses, build families, send their children to schools, and obtain Good health care.
Its withdrawal of its forces from Afghanistan, Iraq and Ukraine was not a withdrawal from the world scene. It still has a presence in the heart of Europe, for example, through its military bases in Germany and others to ensure its national security in the long term, but it plans to reduce more spending on its military interventions in what is being seen in Washington They are considered (marginal) countries, especially after the elimination of al-Qaeda and the so-called Islamic State.
The current US (Democratic) administration hopes that this strategy will help it retain power, but the farthest goal from this is to reduce a greater disparity between the rich and the poor of America that could lead to a street war in a country whose citizens do not lack arms and are not motivated to confront the other!
