One of the words of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was very popular. He used to say, “The person whom the Americans are covering is naked.” His words were also repeated by the then Egyptian Foreign Minister and the current Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Ghayat. In the same way, Mubarak used to repeat one thing of Ghayat that in the past America has demanded to get rid of him.
In fact, the idioms of the former Egyptian president also expressed the opinion of the Arab countries, allies of America. This is also evident in the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.
The US had spent a lot of money and resources in Afghanistan for 20 years, but its return reflects a different situation that the Taliban is promoting. The Taliban is saying that this is their victory against the superpower of the world.
In such a situation, according to many analysts, looking at the future, there is also fear among the allies of America’s Arab countries. Actually, America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is not a one-day decision. It started with the demand of the common people which continued during the times of Barack Obama, Trump and Biden.
The demand was that the US should change its strategy of direct intervention in many parts of the world, especially in the countries of the Middle East. It was also necessary for the struggle against China because these days the Washington administration is considering China as its enemy number one.
Arab countries know the truth
According to these analysts, America’s allies in Arab countries have an idea of the truth after America’s exit from Afghanistan and to express this truth, they are remembering the phrase of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubaraka.
Along with this, they also realize that America can easily leave its allies, so they have to worry about their future themselves, otherwise their situation may also be like those Afghans who are supporters of America.
Those who are monitoring the situation in and around the Arab region are aware of this truth. This is the reason why countries in this region will pay attention to mutual relations. When these countries reduce their dependence on the US for security, they will look for new partners at the regional level and reduce tensions with neighboring countries.
The same situation will be seen among Arab countries as well. This is the reason why Israel is emphasizing on forming the Arab Israel Alliance these days. This is in a way to provide an alternative system of security to the Arab countries after the withdrawal of American troops.
Israel is sending this message to the Arab countries, in the face of threats from Iran and expansionist policies of Turkey, “I hate the Taliban, they will never win.” It is in a position to provide security to all.
I hate the Taliban, they will never win.
Who is happy with the return of America?
It is also indicating that countries are happy after the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan, which were not happy with the increasing US clout in the region. Iran is not only happy with this defeat of America, but the staunch supporters of Islam of the Arab world are also happy.
They are writing on social media that the return of Taliban to Afghanistan is a victory for Islam and Muslims. People in Islamic groups are writing that the Taliban has achieved their goals and desires.
But the biggest question is, has America really lost to the Taliban?
The impact of the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan may be visible on American allies in the Arab region, but the biggest question is, has America really lost? In the visuals that are coming out on television, soldiers of American and their allies are seen rapidly leaving Afghanistan. There is also the fear of the Taliban taking revenge. In view of this, many analysts are assuming that this is America’s worst defeat so far. Although some people are calling it the biggest defeat after the defeat in Vietnam.
However, the opinion of some analysts is opposite. According to him, America has pulled out of Afghanistan of its own free will so that it can achieve its new strategic goal. According to these people, America wants to counter China better and it is very possible that in the coming days it will use Taliban to destabilize China and Iran. This argument also cannot be dismissed outright.
