American withdrawal from West Asia: the price of General Soleimani’s martyrdom
TEHRAN- After 20 years of US occupation of Afghanistan under the pretext of fighting terrorism and Al-Qaida, it had to withdraw its forces in a humiliating way, and left everything behind, including the military vehicles still in use . The US forces even abandoned the trained dogs they used in the incursions and equated them with those who cooperated with them.
In West Asia, the United States of America announced the transfer of the Patriot missile system from four Arab countries: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan and Iraq. Apart from the Iraqi parliament’s decision to withdraw US forces, it is an embarrassing decision for the government, which was forced to implement it, before it was imposed on the ground by resistance forces.
The United States of America is trying to portray its withdrawal as the result of achieving its goals and objectives in the region; but this is not true, and it is a justification similar to what happened to France when it withdrew from Africa under the strikes of the national movements in these countries. It has been described as the mighty work of General De Gaulle, who has been described as the liberator of peoples, while he is one of the leaders of colonialism, but it is he who led the process of colonial color change. Instead of military presence, soft presence has been achieved through many means.
The American withdrawal from the region is presented today as an American conviction, and that the situation no longer requires an American military presence in the region. However, the reality is that the American occupation and this presence in violation of international law practice a process of smooth flight under the cover of obscurity, so as not to appear defeated in the battle for influence in the region.
America knows that the Resistance Alliance’s decision to avenge martyr Qassem Soleimani is effective and will not abandon it. This is a global decision for all the resistance forces, and as Iranian leaders have expressed it, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah summed it up in his famous sentence: “Qassem Soleimani’s shoes are more honorable than the head. of Trump… Therefore, the price of this crime is the US exit from the region.
The country that knows the Resistance alliance better than the others is the United States of America. He tried, by all means, to bring him down and eliminated him by all means, and he failed by all measures. He attempted the economic blockade, media rumors, intellectual warfare and the use of terrorism, but it was all in the interest of the resistance forces, who gained experience of the confrontation that the Americans did not. considered. In fact, the American is different from the rest of the resistance opponents.
This American withdrawal is incomplete today because it tries to change the color of the occupation by a non-military presence through the use of its functional tools. However, it comes up against the growing awareness of the Resistance Axis, which today, in addition to military might, has great power to absorb the transformations and face them with the necessary choices.
America knows that its survival in the region is very costly, as it will remain under the blows of the Resistance Axis, which has grown and gained great influence over the past ten years, meaning that the American presence is no longer free, but the price will instead increase if he insists on staying.
The American grew up under the influence of pragmatic philosophy. What is right for this is what realizes interest, and the latter is the criterion of truth. There is nothing fair unless it achieves interest, and America’s flight from the region is that it is convinced that the rising power cannot be confronted because it has a different philosophy. It is based on sacrifice, and it is not possible to compare between those who seek interest and those who seek spiritual advancement through their sacrifices without expecting compensation.
