Israel’s not so secret campaign to court Russia as its new protector of Israel and supplier of sophisticated arms amid growing tensions with the USA is not about two people fighting and the one finding a new friend, it’s a strategic plan to boost its own global power by hitching its wagon to the two super powers who are also fighting.
It’s called playing the fence, a strategy Israel uses to obtain all of its goals. There’s nothing new here. Israel isn’t going to dump the USA for Russia. Israel is taking advantage of a weak spot and moving in to exploit both Russia and the USA.
The USA is too invested in the strategic location of Israel in the Middle East to dump Israel, which means they don’t really care about Israel itself; they care about Israel’s location and how it benefits the USA – and Israel knows this.
But there’s nothing about Israel’s location that has benefited the USA or the Middle East or the world.
Gain Israel and we through Israel and our foot in the door transform the Middle East into an Arabian, Persian, Muslim democracy has been the thinking, thus the strategy, in the region for decades. It isn’t working.
It’s time to do a Cuba move in that region. The sooner the better, because things as they say are only going to get worse. There is no ‘better’ on the horizon when the wheels set in motion have no breaks or turning mechanism.
