Kurginyan: US pushed the Greater Middle East away from itself

13.04.2018, Moscow.

The US pushed all of the Middle East away from it, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on April 11 on air of the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov program on Russia-1 TV channel.

The political scientist named the countries of the Middle East with which the United States has damaged relations, “Pakistan will abandon the US altogether. I know that there are specialists, who know it better than I do, but I think that Pakistan will abandon the United States. Sooner or later, it will eventually go to China. Is Afghanistan crawling away? It is. Is Iran a cornerstone of a new regional order?  Yes, it is. Was Iraq cast at Iran’s feet? Yes, it was. Were Syria and the rest to a significant degree given to Iran? Yes, they were. The whole Greater Middle East, all of this world is changing. Is Turkey departing from the US shore? It is. Who could have imagined this?! Turkey and Iran are making some agreements with our support.”

Sergey Kurginyan described the position of the United States as being under a strategic time pressure. “If all the Greater Middle East departs from the United States, and the United States did push it away and is turning it in God knows what, the United States are losing not just the power over the world. They are losing this very [leading] position and slide down to another one. And as soon as they reach the second place, they will immediately slide down to the fifth. And when they reach the fifth place, the US population will react in a certain way. So, they cannot leave.”

The political scientist stressed that China smiles at America, but softly and persistently aids the Greater Middle East to “depart” from the United States. One should take into account that China cannot forgive certain things for centuries. In particular, China will never forgive the United States for the situation with Taiwan.

Since the beginning of 2000s, the United States has initiated multiple conflicts in the Middle East. Since 2001, US military stays in Afghanistan but did not manage to create stability in the region. After the United States had invaded Iraq, local government fully depends on the US, which causes strong discontent of the local Shia population. The relations between the United States and Turkey deteriorated after an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow President Erdoğan, in which intelligence agencies of the United States were involved.

After Donald Trump came to the White House, relations with seemingly faithful allies in the region had wavered. On August 22, 2017, Donald Trump practically blamed Pakistan of supporting terrorists. Later, the leader of the United States problematized the Iranian nuclear deal by saying that the United States can leave the deal at any moment.
