The Afghan scenario may repeat itself
Following the scandalous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the US seems to be beginning to cut military aid to other allies. Saudi Arabia has thus lost the air defenses provided to the kingdom by American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. This is the opinion of the American political scientist Dmitry Drobnitsky. He pointed out the publication in the APN agency.
“Associated Press experts analyzed satellite images of certain areas of Saudi Arabia” those where the American Patriot facilities were located, configured to repel rocket attacks aimed at Yemen, “Drobnitsky wrote on his telegram channel. “This is happening at a time when the kingdom continues to be bombarded with unguided missiles and drones from Iranian Houthi rebels.” The Riyadh-led coalition controls the southwest of the country, the rebels & mdash; the rest of the territory. In response to the bombing of the Saudis, the Hutians began attacking rockets and drones with rockets and drones, as well as oil fields.
Drobnitsky recalled that on February 4, 2021, US President Joe Biden announced that the United States would stop supporting Saudi offensive operations in Yemen.
“But, of course, no one expected the air defense forces to collapse,” the political scientist writes. US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was recently scheduled to visit Riyadh, but was reportedly “ canceled due to planning problems & # 39; & # 39 ;. One way or another, Saudi Arabia is increasingly expressing fear and irritation at the possible withdrawal of the United States from the Arab conflict. In about the same way as from Afghanistan. & # 39; & # 39;
