Change American strategy toward Iraq and Syria, and the continuation of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, and the reasons contain conflicts and the Far East China Sea, three topics attracted international attention to the French press.
Obama and Iraqi challenge
The newspaper Le Figaro political analysis entitled: «Iraq and Syria: Obama's change strategy», saying that the challenge of the current Iraqi with an increased risk of the organization «Islamic state», known as «Daash», pay with the passage of time, the White House master to change his approach, and convinced him more engaging and engagement with this explosive situation, by interfering with air strikes targeted against militants and locations of the organization «Daash» terror on the one hand, and also send signals growing on his intention to expand the possible options to defeat this organization outside of Iraq, on the other hand. The newspaper said that the lines of politics in Washington toward the region finally began moving the deadlock, which was characterized by, especially after Obama convinced that the situation today in Iraq, Syria is no longer likely to wait or to bet on time and buy time. Therefore finally came his reaction against «Daash» After weeks of waiting heavy, although the concerns of Americans since the time of the possibility of a prolonged involvement in the new Middle Eastern quagmire, is the last thing they want to, after the bitter experience of the Iraq war. But all indicators confirm today that Obama was determined actually to return to express «serious commitment» and long-term commitment to the region, especially in terms of arenas of Iraq and Syria together, to be sure of defeating al «Islamic state» and rid the region and America and the world from his threat.
In this respect, the paper quoted «Brian Kateles», an expert from the «Center for American Progress» considered close to the White House, saying that is expected to see American operations against terrorism dramatic spike in the coming period, with the expectation of greater involvement in these efforts also by Washington's European allies and Middle Easterners. Among the signs as well as to change the vision and the American approach toward the conflict in Iraq and Syria, told the chief of staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, in which he described the organization «Islamic state» that «Organization adopts vision catastrophic dreaming of the end of the world» and «should wished defeat». It also is not without significance, too, in this context, the White House called for the killing of American journalist James Foley at the hands of militants of the terrorist organization as a «terrorist attack» on the United States.
Until recently, the American goal seems in the first place as if containment is not necessarily the complete destruction of the sources of the challenge list, but Gen. «Dempsey» also gave in his speech made a strong impression that it contained a very strategic new American strikes against the sources of risk in Syrian territory itself, in order to dry up the sources of support for the terrorist organization, which is believed to be based on no less than 10 thousand armed. The Minister of Defense Chuck Hagel also that all options are possible, and in the context of this confrontation in order to eliminate the sources of threat. And a few hours later confirmed this trend as well as national security adviser in the White House when asked about the possibility of a strike inside Syrian territory, he said: «We will do whatever is necessary to protect Americans, and in order to see justice done to kill off the brutal James Foley. We are looking with interest everything that would be necessary to respond to this challenge, we will not stop at the borders ». In this suggest the possibility of strikes within the territory of the Syrian retreat from the position of the former American since a year from now when Washington declined at the last moment to intervene militarily in Syria.
Considered Le Figaro that this marked change in the American approach, and the growing desire to return strongly to the intervention in Iraq and Syria, playing two killed American journalist James Foley a big role, especially in light of how to kill him brutal review, though «Brian Kateles» Expert Center for American Progress mentioned, also confirms that the debate was already under way in Washington since the beginning of the summer, about the need to change the approach «and to look at the cases of Syria and Iraq as two Michabactan», and not change the situation now is not necessarily linked to a specific incident.
Aggression on Gaza
Within the coverage of the newspaper Libération of the Israeli aggression on Gaza considered that the insistence of Netanyahu to continue the aggression, is what made him make up excuses haphazardly for breach of any truce and continue the bombardment of Gaza, and perhaps the last of those excuses to claim that ballistics Palestinian is killed an Israeli child, and if this it in a solution of any calming or a cease-fire on Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip, including women and children. In his attack, which came after this speech directly cited three Palestinians, according to medical sources, the 47th day of the ongoing conflict between Israel and the movement «Hamas». The three have been cited in the Nuseirat refugee camp, while five others were wounded. On the day before yesterday, on Friday, also injured 40 Palestinians in a raid to fly the Israeli on a house in Gaza City, according to witnesses, he began to drone bombing of the house consists of two floors, to come after that aircraft type F16 and receive it a bomb destroyed the entire . According to sources, the paper says, the building is owned by a family, where some individuals belonging to the movement «Hamas».
It quoted Liberation spokesman for the government of Tel Aviv as saying that «Hamas» face attacks cruel and «will pay a heavy price» and that Israel would step up its operations, this despite the fact that Israeli child who was said to projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip have caused his death is the Israeli civil fourth only to die since the conflict erupted on July 8 last year. No. It can not be compared, of course with the huge number of Palestinian civilians who have been killed because of the Israeli aggression on Gaza. Moreover, this is also the boy's first fatality from the Israeli side since the killing of three soldiers in an attack that he was told to destroy a tunnel on the first day of the month of August. In spite of the continuation of the conflict all this period, and the expansion of Israel to the extent of aggression, but the rockets and projectiles being launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel is still ongoing, which means digress miserably for the first objectives of the war Netanyahu, who claimed that he wants to eliminate the sources and resources of rocket fire Israel. Rather, the Tel Aviv itself is still the target of rockets by Palestinian militants so far. It means that the aggression did not achieve its objectives, and the excuses put forward by Netanyahu has crumbled and fell successively one after the other.
China Sea conflict
In the newspaper Le Monde wrote «Paul Torre», director of the Higher Institute of the French economy, maritime, an article about partnership opportunities and the sharing or vow of conflict and strife in the Far East and China Sea, highlighting the reasons of the conflict now between Beijing and some other capitals of the neighborhood regional, because of the claim of each party sovereignty over areas in the South China Sea, believed to contain many economic resources such as oil and gas. The author said that the border disputes over some islands and offshore locations in the China Sea and the balances transferred from there to regional relations is a recipe for chronic instability, and remain poised to escalate to dangerous limits at any moment. In light of the great ascent to the status of China as an international, and change a lot of data and political convictions in Japan, and the entry of Vietnam, Korea and the Philippines on the line of these conflicts, increasing concerns towards the current state of tension in the region. But with this region is characterized by the Far East now also as an economic zone integrated, and able to find partnership benefits for all parties, and to allow them to benefit together from marine resources, and little understanding can become a marine area stretching from the Strait of Malacca to Vladivostok space cooperation and exchange interests and unique benefits, and similar confluence Average White Sea last, in the Far East. It is known that partnerships trade and cooperation and positive exchange will enhance the chances for peace and stability where they exist, and this is a lesson that should put the countries of the China Sea and the Far East in mind, and benefit from it in containing conflicts and border disputes marine chronic.
