ArmInfo. The confrontation between Iran and the USA is by no means a classic model of such conflicts. Director of the Center for Strategic Studies "Ashkhar" Hrachya Arzumanyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"In any case, this confrontation involves the use of a particular type of warfare in order to force the enemy to surrender for the sake of his own free will. The US aims to achieve a change of power in Iran and, accordingly, its rejection of regional ambitions. If it is still possible to imagine in the first part, it is difficult to imagine Iran giving up its centuries-old role in the Middle East, "he said.
Tehran, in turn, according to the analyst, seeks to achieve the US withdrawal from the Middle East, which may well be achievable as a result of the current round of confrontation. According to Arzumanyan, primarily due to some coincidence of Iran's goals with the strategic plans of the United States, seeking to focus on relations with China and the Asia-Pacific region.
In this light, according to the analyst, to get involved in another in the next, unpromising war with Iran has long been out of the US interests. The latter are no longer dependent on Middle Eastern hydrocarbons, which allows them to focus on ensuring the security of Israel, in conditions of their own direct military presence in the region.
"At the same time, the US withdrawal will lead to tectonic changes in the region, the emergence of completely new situations and scenarios that will be subject to rethinking from Yerevan. Iran's closest goal in this sense is to push the Americans out of Iraq. At the same time, Iran itself found itself in a very difficult situation and is forced to respond to many challenges and threats, "he stressed.
"On the other hand, all these challenges and threats contain opportunities. In this light, Tehran could well the use the current situation on its favor, first of all, given its own capabilities in the Middle East. Over the past decades, largely through the efforts of the United States, the situation in this region is in favor of Iran. In this light, I do not expect a decrease in Iran's presence and capabilities in the Middle East, " Arzumanyan summed up.
