‘N-talks failure to challenge US’

‘N-talks failure to challenge US’
IRAN  - Possible failure of talks between Iran and world powers over Iran’s nuclear energy program will unite the entire Middle East against US efforts to revive Cold War mythology, an analyst writes for Press TV.

 

“The very failure of the talks will...cement Iran and Syria (and others) to any emerging pole that leads the struggle against a uni-polarity rooted in America seeking to endlessly repeat its Cold War mythology,” Alastair Crooke wrote in an article for the Press TV website.

He added that the US is creating a “myth” by making the world believe that Washington-led sanctions have brought the Islamic Republic to its knees and forced “it to rush to the negotiation table to beg for mercy.”

  • In this narrative, the breakthrough in nuclear talks is credited to the Obama administration's unprecedented economic pressure, which has essentially locked Iran out of the international financial system,” he wrote.

Crooke said Russia-China alliance over Ukraine is also posing challenge to the US Cold War mythology.

He noted that Ukraine crisis “brings together, in a single force, Russia and China in an oppositional alliance to the US monopoly over the international order.”

“[The crisis in Ukraine also] marks the end of the US triangulation by which America has been able to play off one power against another,” he wrote.

The analyst said President Obama is likely to have “instinctively and intellectually” felt the “heating-up occurring in the geopolitical order” due to the status quo in Ukraine.

“Consequently, he needs to pay obeisance to the myth of how America’s Cold War came to be won, particularly in dealing with such domestically emotive issues as Russia's reactions in Crimea and Ukraine,” wrote Crooke.
