'Divide and Conquer' is Back Home
In a short period of time the world has been presented with several events which show that, if there are inner clashes in the United States establishment, that some things in 'the rest of the world' may start to settle down.
The latest event is the adoption of Resolution 2334 by UN Security Council on illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. And, this one is probably the most clear example, since it is a very well known about problem - it has history, it has its ups and down, but there has been only one universal rule since the Oslo Accords – US authorities have been behind Israel all the time. In one way or another, whatever their actions were, they have been serving the Zionist state.
At the end of Obama's first term, the US voted against the resolution on that very same problem – illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.
At the end of this term, when the Atlanticists are weaker than at the end of 2011, the US administration does not vote against the resolution. Israeli officials claim they are betrayed or, they find it unacceptable for the US did not vote in favour of Israel. Moreover, the Israelis' demand both that the new UN Secretary General and US authorities get back in line with Israel.
Even after Israel's successful pressure on Egypt (some say Trump's pressure, as well) to withdraw its draft resolution, it appeared there are some other countries which may jump in with their draft (New Zealand, Senegal, Malaysia, Venezuela). It showed up (again, like in Afghanistan) that Atlanticists can be overplayed only with a guerrilla approach – and that is what Palestinians are good at. So, whether the Zionist state likes it or not, whether AIPEC likes it or not, or whether some wings of the American establishment like it or not, 'the rest of the world' does not need US 'democracy' and it does not need 'the leader of the free world' - this is as much false as the 'Islamic State' – both expressions are from the same kitchen. But it looks like the cook is a bit carried away – he over boiled some things, others are more than raw and the third are burned. The cook gets very strange orders and he is not able to prepare anything.
The 'Divide and conquer' strategy started to be applicable to the US and to the decline of its hegemonic style. Although it has been one of the main strategies of neo-colonialism, it appears this one is going back home.
If Trump was not against the resolution on illegal settlement so eagerly, Obama would never insist on any attitude toward Israel other than the usual, and Samantha Power would not have had such a stupid and inconsistent explanation, or rather say, justification, which she felt she was obliged to give for the constantly raged Netanyahu and Lieberman (and a little bit less raged Dannon).
Aleppo is liberated, the US-led coalition military personnel are discovered among terrorists, Duterte is expelling the US army from Philippines - step by step, China is silently doing and fulfilling its thousand years plans, Houtis are dismantling Saudi-led coalition - which is much more powerful, Kadirov keeps Caucusus safe, Iran takes over regional control and order, US Pacific colonies are suffering in different kinds of turbulences - revisiting their ties with the 'frenemy' and the oppressor, some Eastern (and even Western) European countries are distancing from Jozef K project in Brussels, Erdogan will start the second wave of purging the state apparatus from US and Güllen tied groups and individuals, after the sick revenge for the prevented coup by assassinating Mr. Andrey Karlov. The Balkans are uncertain for the Atlanticists – as always, Greece and Spain welcome Russian ships, and Russia - Russia is preserving Europe's ties with its ancient roots, since Europe forgot everything and decided to give up itself to its raged progenies from across the Atlantic (who are coming back to Europe crazier than their predecessors when they left).
UN Security Council Resolution 2334 adopted in last Friday displays some benefits for the world from inner clashes within US power wings and mechanisms. It also shows the interdependence of US foreign policy and the Zionist state, even when some 'major' changes in US policy are announced – but there are some visible holes, now when the US has inner turbulences and earthquakes.
It may be expected that Donald Trump, now, even more, insists on moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – which would be another violation of of international law as Jerusalem is disputed territory (apart of Trump's recent claim that settlements should be the subject of direct Palestinian-Israeli talks, as if he did not know that the settlements are long ago the UN topic).
And, reality check shows (again) Katehon's correct presupposition from before the American elections that, Clinton's win would mean world war, while Trump's win would mean American inner war.
Trump has a unique opportunity to apply all democratic criteria which the US have been exporting, only this time would be easier, no export expenses. He has a unique chance to 'drain the swamp'.
And it would be for the common good that United States did not mention (ever again) any nuclear threat, war or something which starts with 'nuclear'. At the end of the day, it was United States of America which used nuclear weapons against another country – and, they did it when? At the end of WW2, when it was more than obvious that Japan is no longer (if it was ever) a threat. From a 70 years perspective, it may look now that nuclear attack on Japan was 'preventive' one – US showed to everyone what would happen if not following its projections of the world. And, somehow, again, it is more than obvious, how much overlapping there is in the policies of US and Israel.
The next step for 'the rest of the world' might be a joint force to provide legal and practical background for the IAEA to visit Israel's non-existing nuclear facilities. And the US should not have a voice on that, they lost the right to comment on nuclear power in August 1945. But it takes too long for the world to respond. It needed a major divide within the US establishment in order to start solving decades old, but nevertheless well defined and obvious problems.
