  • Jewish Lobby and American Foreign Policy: 3. The War in Iraq

    📕22.689 🕔16.12.2010

    The war in Iraq is very often interpreted as a war for oil, or a war for the interests of a military-industrial complex. It is possible that these frequently mentioned interests have also been taken into account. However, the so-called "oil lobby" is not considered the strongest in Congress and does not pursue such broad political goals as the war against states. Moreover, the war in Iraq is not in the interests of oil companies. War always means instability and it is not good for any business. This war also does not contribute to good US relations with the Gulf states. If oil companies lobbied for anything in this area, it was probably an improvement in relations with Iraq and Iran and the establishment of normal trade relations, without any regard for human rights. For example, France, which was one of the vocal critics of the US attack on Saddam's regime, had its oil interests in Iraq, and it could be said that French policy rather than the US was the result of an oil lobby.

  • Jewish Lobby and American Foreign Policy: Conclusion

    📕23.490 🕔16.12.2010

    The war in Iraq also shows the limitations of the superpower. Americans are not willing to persist in a conflict in the long run, in which they do not even know why. This does not mean that America does not have the means to do so, but it does not have the will to do so. The departure of Americans from Iraq without stabilizing the situation can have very negative consequences and security risks for Israel. The current situation in Iraq thus allows us to predict future scenarios.
