From Afghanistan; Where America is to be Challenged Next - Why Israel Needs to Pay Attention

Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Debacle in Afghanistan: Interview
in response to reader comment: Afghanistan is Not Over - Recriminations Notwithstanding

The entire paradigm of the Middle East has been subverted with the American 46th Administration's catastrophic political collapse; and too few are really recognizing what has been lost here besides loss of political face and billions of dollars worth of hard-to-come-by modern military hardware. Among other places, the EU, NATO, and America's other enemies in the region are recalculating what it might take to eliminate American influences altogether; think not?
With the change of leadership in the Iranian Islamic Regime examining the evidence that America is now less likely to commit resources they cannot guarantee (ie; how to stop advanced nuclear enrichment-weaponized Iranian Islamic Regime with nukes in view) any stability in case of increased attacks on Israel, like on upcoming High Holy Days and religious observations on the Temple Mount that are sure to cause more instability - who is going to be the counter threat to that? This will likely place a greater stress on PM Bennett, Lapid and even Gantz on high alert to deal with what is on the immediate horizon: and what will America be able to do? Anyone; anyone?
