With the end of World War II and the emergence of a power called America in the world, the way of colonizing countries changed and new colonization entered the field of international politics and the two powers at that time practically divided the world into two blocs, West and East. The former had military bases in their own bloc countries, but their colonial methods, such as Britain, France, Portugal and Spain, were not in the past, but these two blocs established new colonialism in the world. Since the establishment of the Zionist regime in Palestine in 1948, the United States has pursued several goals in the West Asian region, the two main goals of which are to secure this illegitimate regime and to secure energy, and to pursue its so-called interests in West Asia (Middle East). has done.
Since World War II, the United States has sought to bring the geoeconomic regions of the Middle East (territories that play a role in the global economy), including the Persian Gulf, under its political-security control. In geopolitical areas close to the Occupied Palestinian Territories, elite decisions have been made in countries such as Egypt and Jordan, and regime change in countries such as Iraq and Syria.
Released data show that the Americans are trying to establish a multilateral security order in the region, which is now in Iraq and Syria, by bringing countries such as Britain, France and Turkey into the security order of the Persian Gulf and the West Asian region. We are witnessing this.
Ensuring the security of the Zionist regime
The issue of the Zionist regime being at the forefront of US goals and interests in the sensitive region of the Middle East is worth considering; Of course, given the fact that the Zionist regime is a strategic ally of the United States, and secondly, in terms of the powerful influence of the Zionist lobby in the US government structure and its involvement in appointing rulers and government agents in Washington, as well as domestic policy, decision-making and planning. And outside of the United States, paying attention to the stability and security of the occupying Israeli regime at this level of prioritization is not far-fetched.
Securing energy or securing US interests in the Middle East
The region of West Asia or the Middle East, in terms of capturing most of the world’s oil and gas resources, has always been the focus of the great powers, and it is never possible to study and analyze Middle East issues without considering the sensitive issue of energy. Despite having rich oil resources, the United States has based its policy on conserving underground resources, supplying energy through the purchase of oil from producing countries, and maintaining and expanding its strategic resources. Therefore, the US economy is highly sensitive and dependent on the state of oil and energy.
Ensuring the security of the supply and demand cycle of oil and other energy carriers, on the one hand, and access to cheap and abundant oil and energy resources, on the other, is a key US strategy in this regard. Of course, Washington has always been greedy for the Middle East oil resources, and unconditional domination of them is one of the serious goals of this country, and this is the bitter reality behind the US military intervention in the Iraq war, and the world today sees how big companies American oil, despite the poor economic situation and the needs of the Iraqi people, is plundering the oil of this national capital.
The Middle East is the source of the world’s largest energy reserves, oil and gas, and the Middle East oil pipelines can be considered the world’s vital industrial and military artery, while Western countries have been introduced to civilization by the Middle East.
The Middle East is a region that includes the lands between the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf and due to its geostrategic and geopolitical position throughout history has always been the focus of regional and supra-regional powers. Gas has become so important in the last hundred years that it can be said that it is the pulse of the global economy because 62% of the world’s energy resources are supplied and exported from this region.
There are 14 strategic points in the world, 7 of which are in the Middle East, the Bosphorus and Dardanelles, the Suez Canal, the Strait of Gibraltar, the Strait of Bab al-Mandeb, the Big and Small Tonb Islands, and the Strait of Hormuz and Abu Musa Island.
The Middle East is also surrounded by the five major seas of the world, namely the Mediterranean, the Sea of Oman, the Persian Gulf, the Red Sea, the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.
Other US goals and strategies in the Middle East
– Prevent any regional convergence for enmity with the United States in the Middle East
– Efforts to control the Islamic Republic of Iran in the West Asian region
Pursue and file a case for a major US Middle East plan that serves Washington’s interests
– Strengthening US colonial relations with countries in the region
– Prevent Russia and China from gaining power in the region
– Dominance over the leaders of Arab countries with oil and gas resources
– Imposing political, economic, military and security will on the reactionary Arab countries of the Middle East to implement Washington’s colonial and Middle East policies.
– Efforts to create chaos, war and conflict among Muslim countries in the Middle East to justify the continued presence of US terrorist forces in the region
Hence, we see that the US presence in West Asia (the Middle East) is to secure its illegitimate interests and those of the Zionist regime, and not to claim freedom and the development of democracy.
“If Israel did not exist, (this regime) should have been created, and the security of Israel is the security of the United States,” a US official said last Monday.
“The US government ‘s policy towards Israel was reflected in the remarks of Joe Biden (President) during the recent war against the Gaza Strip, and the “It can be said that the security of Israel is the security of the United States.”
Noting that the Biden government continues to develop the circle of Arab countries that have signed the compromise agreement with Tel Aviv and the normalization of relations, he stated that “Biden has paid special attention to current events in the Middle East and North Africa and “It follows closely.”
According to the US official, Israel is at the heart of US policy and is at the heart of those policies.
If we look at the history of the West Asian region in the last 73 years, that is, since the establishment of the occupying Zionist regime in the land of Palestine, we see that all American presidents have defended the Israeli regime with all their might since the formation of this usurping regime. The oppressed and defenseless Palestinians have contributed.
