Joint Statement by the United States and the United Arab Emirates in part declares:
“President Obama and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nuhayan reviewed the full range of regional security issues including Iran, Syria, terrorism, and energy security.
…They also called for a peaceful resolution of the islands’ status, regarding which the United States strongly supports the UAE’s initiative to resolve the issue through direct negotiations, the International Court of Justice, or another appropriate international forum.”
There are many live Iranians, whose birth certificates are much older than the age of the British created UAE.
President Barack Hussein Obama’s backing of what essentially amounts to gerrymandering, a prelude to partition of the Iranian territory is, to put it simply, NUTS.
This “joint statement” will open many cans of worms which can only exasperate already tense situation. Aside calls for revisiting the partition of Bahrain from Iran getting louder; it will play into the hands of the cornered barbaric Moslem rulers in Iran who have increasingly gone for the nationalistic card.
