“Divisions along the Republican and Democratic lines and at the level of society as a whole,” according to American writer William Moloney, are pushing the United States toward a serious geopolitical disaster, amid worsening political polarization and escalating controversies related to the midterm elections in Congress.
Moloney indicated in an article published by the American newspaper, The Hill, that the United States “could face a perfect storm” of sharp political differences, after it witnessed a decline in the areas of military and economic strength and internal cohesion, indicating that the main reason behind this decline is the military interventions launched by Washington. In the past decades, most notably the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Moloney noted that the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ended disastrously, leaving a legacy of failed leadership, political polarization and dramatically eroded US credibility around the world.
Moloney considered that decision-makers in Washington had learned nothing from their mistakes in Iraq and Afghanistan, where the United States is now enthusiastically leading NATO (NATO) in a proxy war against Russia in Ukraine, to re-enter another long-term conflict without clearly defined goals or strategy. applicable.
On the domestic front, Moloney pointed out that the growing chasm dividing American society is widening, and that the divisions are no longer confined to the two main political parties in the country, but also extend to ordinary Americans who are increasingly complaining about the economic pressures the country is witnessing.
And with the congressional midterm elections approaching, opinion polls show that most Americans believe that their country is on the wrong path, indicating that this is bad news not only for the Democrats who currently occupy the White House and maintain the majority in the House and Senate, but also for the Republicans at a time. It neglects issues that really matter to voters, chief among them soaring inflation, a deteriorating US economy, rising crime rates, and the crisis on the US southwestern border.
The repercussions of what happened after the announcement of the victory of US President Joe Biden over his Republican opponent, Donald Trump, including the storming of the Capitol Building, are still present, and the midterm elections to be held on the eighth of next November will be a new round of frantic Republican and Democratic struggle over issues that raise a state of Division among the electorate, including inflation that has strained the pockets of Americans and other sensitive issues, such as abortion laws.
