Yemen’s Mystery and Map of Lt. Col. Peters

The events in Yemen and other parts of Middle East bring back to memory the somewhat forgotten maps of Lt.Col. Peters. In 2006 Ralph Peters, a retired military intelligence officer, published an article in Armed Forces Journal called Blood Borders... Winding his piece up he wrote, «If the borders of the greater Middle East cannot be amended to reflect the natural ties of blood and faith, we may take it as an article of faith that a portion of the bloodshed in the region will continue to be our own»... No need to retell the whole article. The gist of it is the need to remap the «Greater Middle East» starting from Iran and Saudi Arabia...

Bahrain Risks to Follow Yemen

...The Crown Prince of Bahrain, Sheikh Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa, the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, blasted U.S. foreign policy in an interview and warned that its «schizophrenia» will lead the Arab world to ally with Russia. Using unusually hostile language, al-Khalifa said American policy is «transient and reactive», and «America seems to suffer from schizophrenia when it deals with the Arab world. He said the US foreign policy depends on forthcoming election in two years and there is no long-term policy. He expressed doubts that that Arab states could rely on the West. Bahrain does not trust Obama and strives to get US Congress backing...

Yemen: Prospects Uncertain

Rich Saudi lobby enjoys strong position in the United States. Some believe it to be more influential than the Jewish one. On March 9, 47 US Republican senators signed an open letter to the Iranian leadership addressed to «leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran» declaring that any agreement without legislative approval could be reversed by the next president «with the stroke of a pen»... True, lifting sanctions is an issue of paramount importance for Iran. For the sake of reaching this goal Tehran is ready to make concessions when it comes to other issues, like Yemen, for instance. But things look different when you are told directly that the nuclear deal has no chance to be ratified...

Russia Impinges on Israeli ‘Right’ to Bomb Iran

American neocons are in a lather over Russia’s decision to go ahead with the sale of anti-aircraft missiles to Iran. The apparent outrage is that Iran thinks it has a right to protect its citizens from Israel’s right to launch airstrikes into Iran’s territory, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern explains.

Iran is Smashing the Strategic Pincers that Grip It

The Lausanne agreements on Iran’s nuclear program will naturally have a significant effect on the geopolitics of the Middle East, but not necessarily in the way some of the US sponsors of this process have calculated. Tehran seems the only clear beneficiary here, and that country is taking advantage of President Obama’s vanity (as he tries to achieve some sort of high-profile foreign-policy success in the twilight of his professional life) by wrangling an escape from the strategic pincers it is trapped in...

Iran, USA and Russia after Lausanne

Those who have recently said they expect a rapprochement between the United States and Iran will probably be frustrated. The founder of the Republic of Iran ayatollah Khomeini warned that the day American hypocrites will support the Islamic revolution the country may declare a period of mourning. The Iran’s supreme spiritual leader ayatollah Khamenei believes that Iran may change its tactics but the fundamental principles of the 1979 revolution must be left intact. Tehran shows no intent to get close to the United States...

War in Yemen: Historic Prerequisites and Geopolitical Aspects (II)

...Turkey and Iran have some experience of mutual cooperation, including common search for a solution to the issues related to the nuclear program. If the project of U.S.-Iranian-Turkish alliance based on common foreign policy and energy goals becomes true, then Saudi Arabia may take reckless steps including launching its own nuclear program to follow the example of Iran.

Partner or Pariah? Kerry Calls Lavrov for Help

Reading the Western news media is like swimming in a goldfish bowl. News one day gives way to some other transient story the next, and so on and on... To illustrate: one of the most bizarre – unwittingly bizarre – recent news reports was how US Secretary of State John Kerry made an urgent call to Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. Kerry reportedly needed Lavrov for help in clinching a breakthrough in the deadlocked nuclear negotiations with Iran...

Elbe Meeting: 70 Years After

...The Elbe meeting of comrades-in-arms fighting the same enemy was a historic event. But differences remained. They became more visible as the end of war was approaching... Thousands of Russian soldiers were shedding blood near Berlin to bring closer the end of war and save lives of US and British servicemen. At the very same time Winston Churchill gave an order to work out a plan of war against the Soviet Union (Operation Unthinkable) to impose on Moscow the will of the United States and the British Empire! The Red Army’s ally held a stone inside his shirt...
