It seems that the year that separates us from the date of the US presidential elections will be filled with international and regional confrontations between many axes distributed at the economic, political and security levels. Although the US citizen’s domestic rights and services are presented to the US foreign policy in his approach to his election options, the US security and military institutions concerned with preserving the regime’s interests and influence in the world seek to benefit from the preoccupation of candidates and voters. Prepare for the presidential elections to promote its political agenda and devote a fait accompli that it imposes in advance on any elected president.
There is no doubt that the decision-making institutions in the American political system are incompatible and converging in their approaches to the higher American interest, but the fixed context of that interest is drawn by the intelligence system and the military leadership, and the change that can be made by an elected president and his administration in this context is only a circumstantial condition depending on the depth or superficiality. His relationship with that system and leadership.
A renewed US rush against the Axis powers and states, therefore, can be understood after many believed that US domestic preoccupations in the run-up to the presidential election and the accompanying sharp legal struggles in Congress over whether or not to isolate U.S. President Donald Trump would provide the focus of resistance and its allies. An area of ​​cautious calm awaiting the results of the isolation measures as well as the results of those elections.
Certainly, the eyes of the leaders of the resistance axis have never been forgotten in anticipation of the American surprises, especially in light of the policies of Washington distributed between military movements on both sides of the Syrian-Iraqi border and unprecedented economic and financial sanctions on Iran and Syria, and also between the acquisition of the monetary system of the Lebanese state, and the most dangerous among the actions Intelligence «Intelligent» in the Iraqi and Lebanese arenas affected the social fabric of the gate of the economy, especially poverty and deprivation, which lies for decades in this fold.
So the confrontation is manifold with a dangerous enemy who decided to ignite all fronts at once. The confrontation has its vision and mechanisms that are supposed to emulate the magnitude of these confrontations, although some parties of this axis did not have the ability to hold all the joints of its arena due to its political diversity and part of this arena linked to the American project, Iraq and Lebanon, the most prominent example.
Iran was able to grasp the consequences of this confrontation after its security services were able to capture the system that was recruited by the CIA to ignite the country by moving the street under artificial economic and social addresses, noting that the naive timing in announcing prepared measures The deliberate modification of the system of benefiting from fuel subsidies was misplaced, since the financial and social benefits of all middle and poor classes were already being promoted.
Syria is also trying through a series of measures initiated by President Bashar al-Assad on increasing salaries in addition to work to control the movement of financial markets, and attempts to open the doors for a broad economic exchange with many markets, including the Iraqi market.
Iran and Syria, which for decades have been under economic and financial blockade by Washington and some of its European allies, have experienced coping with the blockade by hardening the country and relying on national production systems to avoid falling into the rentier economy.
But this is not the case with the Iraqi and Lebanese arenas where the Americans found the windows to enact access to the rightful movements demanded in order to undermine some of the forces of this axis. Although the composition of these two arenas is profoundly different both politically and internationally, what they share is that the system of corruption holds most of the state’s joints in each. Worse, both systems are linked to the US decision and its options.
So the challenge in Iraq and Lebanon seems bigger and harder, because of the need to reconcile three requirements: First, to preserve the gains of the resistance project in both countries. Second, to face the dangers resulting from the economic, monetary, social and living earthquake that affected the peoples of both countries. Third, the American and his followers were not able to overthrow any of the pillars of the resistance axis, especially in the two countries mentioned because Iraq is the geopolitical link between the components of this axis and because Lebanon is considered the advanced and painful spearhead in the face of the American stepson: the Israeli entity.
This is a year of articulated confrontation and the mere fact that the axis of resistance will survive the consequences of this confrontation. This means that it has achieved an initial victory that can be devoted by its approach to the pattern of relations with the coming administration with a new elected president or a restored president.
