It is actually an orderly retreat.|
The USA has a right-wing rabble that used to constantly agitate against the Soviets. When the USSR collapsed, they formed against Saddam Hussein in the 1991 Gulf War. Then they difted without voice for several years and then re-focused upon Bill Clinton. They finally achieved their pinnacle of strength in the USA just after the 9/11 terror attacks. Their next stop was Iraq, where they toppled the government. Now they're beginning to focus on China because they are failing in Iraq. The American right-wing currently thinks that there is a global counter-offensive against the USA that is comprised of Russia, Iran, Venezuala, China, and North Korea. They used to say it was a European phalanx comprised of France, Germany, and Russia, who are the traditional enemies of England. The enemies of America just keep rotating around in their world, and they are ready at moment's notice to support a military invasion anywhere that the Pentagon wants to try.
I was skeptical of this viewpoint for some years because it emerged as the "vast right-wing conspiracy" that Hillary Clinton identified in the early days of the Lewinsky scandal in Winter 1998. But today, I think her analysis has stood the test of time. The right wing rabble won the congress in 1994, and they impeached Bill Clinton in 1998. In 2000, under the leadership of DIck Cheney, they won the White House. Throughout the Winter and Spring of 2001, the right-wing rabble cloaked their desire for a terror attack to occur in the USA by citing an inability to act due to laws passed by liberal Democrats. When the terror attack they longed for occured in September 2001, they achived their pinnacle of strength as America experienced the triumph of fear over hope.
Now Iraq is becoming a burden and they need someplace to put the focus while they retreat.
