The Swedish left party leader Jonas Sjöstedt criticizes Trump's retreat from the war in Syria, as the US abandons the kurds in northern Syria who defeated the ICE.
It is just an example of that nowadays it is not so rare is the liberal, socialist and sometimes left-wing politicians who are demanding us commitment, and in some cases intervention, while the far-right judge it.
we live in than during the long period in which world politics klyvdes between socialism and capitalism, and the party-political tensions was between the right and the left.
Then denounced the left, closest to the knee-jerk most of the time that the united states did in the outside world, while the right wing supported it.
today The situation is partly reversed, and the dividing line lies on another led. It is not the same political forces as in the past, which today supports the incumbent united states president. Which, of course, is because Trump is not similar to any previous president.
welcomed the decision on the retreat from Syria was hardly a coincidence. They both have strong interest to get the united states out of the way in Syria. And both Erdogan and Putin are members of the “authoritarian internationale” as the Trump see himself as a part of the.
It is not only the Russian and Turkish regimes – and Iran – who rejoice over Trump's decision. Large parts of the global populist right – Marine Le Pen in France – support for the syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
Trump's decision, however, has a broader meaning than the Syrienkonflikten. In fact, it is an expression of a coherent worldview. Trump distrust the long american global engagement. On that point has Trump widespread support among many americans who also do not see any point in sending soldiers to die in distant places.
What says that he did not eventually take a step that more shocks to the foreign bundsförvanterna?
against the allies in Europe and against Nato, as he contrary to the facts only see as a cost, may ultimately mean that he takes the united states out of the western alliance joined. He can do the same unilaterally – and on the equally false premise – that he left the paris agreement on climate, rev up the free trade agreement in the Pacific, completed militärövningarna in south Korea and announced the US retreat from Syria and Afghanistan.
the Question becomes how much Trump have the time to implement his own variant of the ”US go home!” – in his own words ”America first” – during the time he has left in the White house.
