Iran Doing What Israel Could Not Do: Unite Arabs!!

It is hard to overestimate what is happening. Talks about a customs union and a common currency among the Persian Gulf’s Arab states have been going on for a long time without any progress. But, thanks to the ‘Iranian threat’ this might change very soon. Just as European integration always moves faster when there is an external threat, Persian Gulf Arab integration is now moving faster because of Iran.

 

And, this week these states announced the organization of a common military command. This surely is a precursor to more to come.

 

The Arab region is fearing that Iran is breaking free of its isolation. Every Sunni Muslim country is now convinced that Iran will do everything it can to further destabilize the region by supporting Shia Muslim protests that make up a very large portion of these Arab state populations. The fact that their old allies, the US and the EU, are the engines behind the new deal with Iran, makes them unreliable in the eyes of many Sunni leaders.

Could it be that quite simply they don’t trust the U.S. and E.U. – as surely the Shah of Iran should not have? Or is it that they fear a continuation of the “freedom wave” to their countries, which surely would undermine the semi-feudal regimes in power in these countries? Unquestionably, not a single one has any measure of democracy or governments with popular mandates. They are insecure and it shows. And ironically, the Mullahs in Iran appear to be drivers of democratic ideals – when the Mullahs themselves have a legacy of brutality and totalitarianism.

 

Iran has become the scapegoat – unifying the enemy! And has done more to inspire Arab unity then Israel ever did. Isn’t that funny or strange? Another Muslim nation considered enemy number 1???

 

And it’s not all bad news for the West or Israel. Making Iran a “lulu” has contributed beautifully to massive arm sales. In October the U.S. announced a $10.8 Bn sale of arms to Saudi Arabia and the Emirates. This caps off over $25 Billion in sales to the same states in the past 2 years.

 

It seems Iran’s nuclear program ended up having a VERY positive impact on US arms exports.

 

But what is also interesting is the extent of Saudi and Qatari cash that is involved in Libya, Egypt, Syria… you name it.  There is an unusual level of financial involvement in the political affairs of other nations in the region, which in the end make leadership in those nations beholden to these Persian Gulf Arab states. All this has led to Arab solidarity and unity.

Iran has become the pretext for Arab unification and this unification is leading to engagements in other political theaters. What a show?

 

As I have said many times, the Mullahs are precisely what the west wants in the region. A struggling contained but scary Iran is precisely what the ‘doctor’ ordered. Iran has become a very useful tool in this form. With all this money to be made, the West has no vital interest in the freedom and liberation of Iranians… they are only interested in exploiting Iran’s ugliest sides to produce more cash!!!

I always knew the Arabs would bow to the Persians in the end. Israel will never bow to either.

"Here we go again" is a fraise famous by diseased President Reagan some thirty years ago. I will see it appropriate to use it on the people who have no sense of understanding of today's politics around the world. For past 30 years US and its allies used Iran as "LuLu" ( monster), but if a person carefully looks at the realities of the world's imbalances without any self aggravations towards it he can understand that one-dimensional behavior like what United States used to do for past 20 years is not going to work anymore. Elements like China- Russia pack and the soft power of Iran have all contributed to the fact that players are stronger and they know the game very well.

The term sanction is used when one will have the upper hand over the other as long as parties involved have not experienced any unpleasant variables. In a simple two dimensional equation of X and Y that X elongate horizontally and Y moves up vertically the relationship between two parties, X and Y, can only be represented in a simple graph that moves in a straight line rather wavy or bumpy.



Now we have entered into a three dimensional situation in the world that the graph can not be straight line any more. The variable Z is introduced and parties involved have experienced enormous shiftings. The variable Z is the introduction of "China - Russia pack" which Iran (X) as soft power in middle-East, U.S. (Y) as commander in chief in the world military and financially, and China- Russia pack (Z) as controller of real goods delivered to the world.



To understand this three dimensional world we have to start with Iran (X) witch is the center of whole issue. Iran is on top of a region that delivers most of natural resourced to the world as well as United States at the present time. Iran is an attractive variable that perpetrators are only interested in its resources rather its sovereignty. In the past 200 years all of the modern era empires like Great Britain and U.S. had the ability to control most the world's natural resources through their Industrial Military Complex. At the present time U.S. (Y) is trying to hold on to its control specially in the Middle-East that is so vital to its ability to stay afloat as the world's only power, military and financially.



For many years China was trying to enter into new world since the time it lost power to British after Opium war. China has been working so hard to regain its old glory for so many years until Richard Nixon, the 37th president of United States, opened the door for them. For Chinese, the open door was the beginning of the expansionism and globalism that brought them close to the West vast open markets that it has been looking for decades.



The introduction of opium to Chinese by British more than 100 years ago made Great Britain as a super power at the time that subsequently created another super power named United States of America after WWII. For Chinese the only way out this helplessness was to introduce the same level of intolerance they had experienced under opium addiction to the West that the only way out for the West would have been destructions and vulnerabilities.



By recalling the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kennedy as American commander and Khrushchev as Soviet Union comrade in charge, one can relate the situation then in Cuba to the situation now in Syria. Back then, Kennedy knew the hollowness of Soviets and its bluffs and now, Putin knows the big empty stomach of Americans and its bluffs. Both situations are almost alike only the variables are displaced, X an Y are now Y and X. Europeans know the equation has switch in favor of Russians so they are acting accordingly. Now we have entered into a new Cold War, American as empty big belly and Russian as strong as ever.

As you know, Russians are feeding Europe with all natural resources like oil and natural gas through Balkans. Europe can not survive with American big empty promises as before, they need to survive and the only way to continue forward is to get involve with the winner.

In a Texas Hold 'Em Poker, There are 5 community cards on the table and two hole cards on hands of each players. You tell me who has the best cards on hand now, West or East. When you answer the question you understand why Russians and are moving in with their new comrades; China, Iran, and most of the EAST.

Arab for past 35 years had the back ups of the United States of America and its allies. Now since the boss (US) is weak and vulnerable financially, Arabs need lots of help in order to justify their weaknesses. Iran is not paper monster or "LULU" anymore, Iran is the real power in the region and unifications of all Arab will not be sufficient enough to help them out of their misery. The reason they are afraid because the BOSS is not capable of helping them to stay in power anymore.

It is time that all the puppets governments of every single Arab countries set down by letting people rule over their destiny.

So be honest and square. Don't write or say something that the fraise " here we go again" used on you. The era of pushing and shoving is over. Using terms like "Mullahs" or anything like that just shows the person's inabilities to look forward to see the realities of today's world. For God sake, we are living in internet era not in a self blindness and total darkness.

Thank you for my history lesson this morning. TO use your phrase: "TO be honest" I have no idea what you were talking about in the last paragraph in major sections throughout your thesis. For your edification:

(1) My blogs are statements of fact useful for those interested in current events surrounding Iran. If they want to use the phrase "Here we go again" - they can certainly use it, it implies that like a Newspaper, here is another current events article. And if people don't like them, they are free not to read them - that is their right. And by the way, why is it that I am consistently in the top ten on this and other sites in terms of readers? This is not a business for me. And at least in this country people are free to say whatever they want to say, and I would be thrilled if people exercised this right even if they are rolling there eyes at anything I say. I respect that. I respect disagreement. Lets have a good discussion and argue our points. Shall we?

(2) The situation in Iran is even more complicated then your description provides, and certainly, the West has remained a player inside Iran (even today) and has been supporting the Mullahs for a long-time.

(3) Russia is a has been power. With a GDP of 2.0 Trillion (and dropping), there are now over a dozen countries that have more economic clout then Russia. Brazil, Italy, Canada, India... to name just a few. Mismanagement and corruption in Russia will continue to lead to its further demise; and hopefully we Iranians will be able to move forward with unifying Iran with its "Persian" neighborhood in the process (that we lost to Russia a hundred and fifty years or so ago). Iran would do well to stay clear of Russia, and China too should stay clear of Putin. The Russians will not and can not add value to any nation that aligns with them. Russians are too poor and corrupt to do so, they will be more like a leach sucking allies dry.

(4) China and its global impact is for sure a critical issue for the West, and I agree with you on that point. So far the Chinese have been relatively decent with Iran and Iranians. They are good customers for Iran's energy as well as sellers of goods to Iran. An alliance with China is value added for Iran. Nothing wrong with a close connection with China. And by the way, Japan too, and indeed many countries in the ASEAN. Iran needs to look East. Unlike the West they haven't traded unfairly with Iran, stolen Iranian oil without paying royalties, stolen Iranian oil and gas from the Caspian, they haven't interfered with domestic Iranian politics and undermined Iranian democracy three times in one hundred years, they haven't reinvigorated Opium fields in Afghanistan at the expense of Iranian youth (with 70% of Afghanistan crop coming to Iran), precipitated a crippling 8 year war that provided over a million Iranian casualties ... I could go on and on. Iran is wise to look East. The cleanest commerce Iranians can have is with Asians - not (Western) Europeans, Russians or ....

(5) The real fear Arab countries have is of their own people and democracy. They are not buying arms to fight Iran, they are buying arms to (a) buy time from the West, and (b) use them against their own people.

P_J. An Iranian!

I second that, as hard as I tried!

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

These Iranian Ugliest sides are not even Iranian. Shia Islams foundation is the separation of the Church and the State. This was an Iranian accomplishment long before the enlightenment in Europe. What we have today are the Corrupt Islamic Authorities Brought from outside Iran from the mosque network and then maintained in Power over Iranians.
