I spoke with PressTV in the immediate aftermath of the F.UK.US. airstrikes against Syria late last week.
I describe Israel as the “quiet elephant in the room” and noted that despite US influence over events in Syria being largely trumped by Russia in recent years, the tripartite alliance of France, the UK and US are continuing military operations at the behest of Israel, which is hysterical about encroaching Iranian influence across the Middle East, and what that entails for Israeli regional hegemony.
But it’s a losing game. All four countries – along with their regional allies – are losing their historical positions in the Middle East, and are desperately trying to do something to stop that new reality from manifesting. At the same time, they are apparently not so desperate that they will risk a ‘hot war’ with Russia.
In the process of ‘projecting their strength’, they have exposed how weak they have become militarily, and their avalanche of lies in the media about how ‘successful’ the event was for them indicates that they are facing an existential war, not with Russia and China, but with reality itself. Who do you think is going to win in the end?
