Why would Russia not ally with Iran?
Anti-Russian Sunni are on Russia’s southern border and within the Republics of the former USSR that Putin would like to rebuild. Shia Iran would love to destroy Sunni islam and rebuild the Persian Empire. Russia would love permanent warm-water ports on the Mediterranean (Shia Syria) and the Indian Ocean (Shia Iran). Put an Iranian ally in charge of that? Why not? By foolishly destroying Iraq, an ignorant America destroyed the only regional opponent capable of stopping Iran.
Together Russia & Iran can rid the region of Sunnis; doing so is in […]
A day cannot pass in which we are not bombarded with Left and Right commentary on how to achieve peace in the Middle East/South Asia region.
Newsflash: Nobody cares.
The entire discussion will become important – only – when it switches from how to achieve peace in the region, to how to ensure radical islam stops attacking the modern world.
No one really cares about the region, nor should they. It has no manufactures anyone needs, no produce to drive trade, no education to speak of, no indigenous culture that continues to spread globally (music, writing, philosophy, dance, art, theatre, […]
Dr Mead, normally on-point, is – as are all the other pundits refusing to think outside the box of traditional presidents (all the more ironic as Obama was elected because he was NOT traditional) – wrong again on Obama making “mistakes” in his strategy re: ISIS.
It’s amazing how many people, after so much time, refuse to understand Obama. He is not making mistakes.
If he wanted to expand Shia to the Med what, exactly would he do differently?
He is using the brutality of Sunni ISIS to demoralize Iraq so much they are willing to turn to Iran […]
A friend recently wrote to me that the world today reminds her of the “Gathering Storm,” referring to Churchill’s book of that name documenting the lead-up to WW2 in Europe (which, if you have not yet read it, is a must for understanding that war – and today’s rising tensions). I wrote back that the better analogy is the sovietization of Russia under Lenin and Stalin, and the susbequent destruction of law, domestic personal liberties, markets, opportunity, living standards, education and employment, all of which American Democrats – assisted by their GOP “opponents” – are doing in our […]
I hope that everyone understands that Obama – intentionally – is creating a nuclear nightmare in the Middle East and South Asia, and that the only way out will be a nuclear attack on at least one nation and its people.
Once Iran is close enough to a nuke to reach breakout, Israel will nuke the Iranian underground facilities, which are too deep for any conventional bunker-buster to destroy. Obama will have left them no choice but to do so.
And Saudi Arabia and Egypt – and every other Sunni state in the region – will be cheering […]
