As we watch the approaching conflict between the Sunni Saudi’s , Egyptian’s and other Middle eastern and North African countries against the Shia Iran leaders
One has to make some observations…..
As one has repeatedly pointed out?
The fight has been set up by American attempts to import something to the Middle East and North Africa that doesn’t work….
We have seen how the sweeping out of autocratic leadership in the Middle East and North Africa leaves a vacuum that political opponents Rush in to fill (The Arab Spring that has proved to be not much if anything )
We have also seen that the U.S. policy makers have overlooked a basic in these area’s….
The Muslim world has had a push – pull going on for centuries
It is still present today
The ambitious Iranian leadership is seeking thru it’s proxies to extend its influence
That effort cost American lives in Iraq in its post 9/11 efforts there…The same Shia militias that America and NATO fought and neutralized, before leaving, are now fighting against ISIS
Not for President Obama but for Iran
Iran associated groups have turned up in Lebanon, Syria and Libya these days…
Saudi Arabian leaders , THE major U.S. ally for decades have watched as Iran extended it’s grip outside its borders
Looking to the U.S. to provide it cover
But American troops have left the region….
President Obama, at first, declared this a good thing and goal achieved….(Even though he wanted to station about 5,000 troops in Iraq)
The Iraq’s told America, after ‘liverating’ their country to leave…They’d handle things themselves united a feeling of nationalism that NEVER really existed there…
President Obama has resisted sending ‘combat’ troops back to fight the fight again even though the Republican ‘s want to do it again…(Instead there are ‘advisors’ schooling the Army in that country that turned and ran the second the Americans left the place….
The Saudi’s find themselves looking at a Shia resurgence all around its borders by Shia (Iranian) groups popping up…And have decided after things have gotten out of hand in Yemen…That they….Along with other Sunni Arab nations must act , and stop waiting for America, which is worried about the Islamic State and NOT much of anything else…..
So NOW, with their American brought and equipped military
and the same mostly American trained Egyptian one
(Egypt tried democracy….they didn’t like it…Obama wisely left things alone)
They have the Arab Sunni nations now warming up to do something unthinkable
fight their own fight against Iran
No, American troops are in the forefront….
Who would dream that America could pull this off without knowing it?
