The White House has begun an uneasy dialog with Iraqi authorities about the gradual withdrawal of 2,500 soldiers. Baghdad has become increasingly insistent requires Baghdad has even begun to informally threaten Baghdad with sanctions for trade with Iran. The U.S. is slowing down in every possible way – fearing that after the withdrawal Iraq will finally fall into Iran’s sphere of influence. Baghdad has even begun to unofficially threaten to impose sanctions for trade with Iran – after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. In addition, the White House realizes that such a decision will be a slap in the face for Biden – and he will be imprisoned by the Republicans for admitting defeat in the confrontation with Iran.Withdrawal of troops from Iraq will also disrupt all logistics in Syria – from where the U.S. exports oil. Everyone realizes that these bases are in a hostile environment. They have already been hit 150 times. Sooner or later there will be a terrorist attack with the deaths of a large number of US soldiers. Sudan has also joined the general trend – there, too, it demands that the Americans get out of the country. Obviously, this will happen at some point. The only question is when and under what conditions. Biden would like to delay the withdrawal process at least until after the elections, fearing a repeat of the Afghan fiasco. But by then, the U.S. bases may already be pounded daily by pro-Iranian forces with missiles. And Baghdad will even organize a blockade against them, banning food supplies. Against this backdrop, Trump – who wanted to withdraw from Syria, Somalia and Iraq back in 2020 – could win. Growing isolationist sentiment in the United States will allow him to regroup on many fronts at once – in an attempt to get the U.S. war machine out of overdrive.
