Over half of Americans consider Ukraine ally in World War III

There is a very interesting poll about who Americans see as their allies, and enemies, in a future world war

client/title.list_title

Of course, most Ukrainian observers write about how much Americans really value Ukraine.

But I would like to draw attention to the following: how sh*tty American Middle East policy has been and remains, and how many catastrophic mistakes have been made in it. And how much money has been wasted on nothing, or rather, on worsening the situation for the United States itself. And yes, the Americans themselves do not believe in the success of the Middle East policy.

As a result, 57% of Americans believe that Iraq is their enemy. In other words, the war, the removal of Hussein, and all of this was for nothing. It even made the situation worse. Now Iraq is as stupid as a petri dish for all kinds of radical movements. With the population growing rapidly.

Saudi Arabia is 28% enemy versus 15% ally. Yes, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is now trying to become an entity that balances between the United States and China, but partnership with the United States is still a key guarantee of the kingdom's security. But the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can also be understood: the United States did not help it with the Houthis, but rather the opposite. Now this problem has become larger, as Iranian proxies have established themselves literally on the border of Saudi Arabia.

It is a neighboring region, but the situation is similar. Pakistan. Almost 30 years of support for very specific Pakistani regimes, at the peak of the India-USSR partnership, which never actually threatened the United States or prevented American companies from operating in India. As a result, India, China's natural enemy, still has very limited trust in the United States, and Pakistan is rapidly coming under China's dominant influence. Because China does not raise human rights issues, it simply needs to strengthen India's enemy.

Oh, and about long-term planning and the wisdom of geopolitical strategies and all that. They simply don't exist.
