The Iran Conspiracy

Posted: January 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

Is Iran conspiring to run the Middle East?

What we have in the world today is a perfect storm and it is coming straight for us. We have a president who is either inept or evil and refuses to lead and an entire Middle East region that is crumbling to what could be described as the most evil regime in the world.

Within days of the United States pulling out of Iraq the seemingly impossible has occurred. The region is falling farther into chaos. Iran has made several power plays in the last few days and if we don’t react soon, they are going to own the entire region.

A series of bombs shattered the peace of both Sunni and Shiite neighborhoods today. At last count the death toll for these attacks reached sixty-five. No one has claimed responsibility but experts are speculating that it has the fingerprints of Al Qaeda’s Sunni insurgents on it.

While almost a hundred lay dead and hundreds more injured another disturbing issue is beginning to form in Iraq. The Shiite prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, is on a mission to purge his government of Sunni influence or so it may seem.

Earlier in the week al Maliki issued an arrest warrant for his vice president, Tariq al-Hashemi, for terrorism. Al-Hashemi is accused of running hit squads that murdered government officials during the sectarian violence of a few years ago. Also during this same time, Prime Minister al-Maliki is seeking a vote of no confidence against another prominent Sunni official, the deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq.

As of right now al-Hashemi is in hiding in the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq.

The third leg of the perfect storm is centered a short trip away from Iraq in Syria. The violence in Syria is intensifying and has become down right barbaric this week.

Syrian forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, surrounded a small village recently and killed one hundred civilians. Brutality on this level is impossible to explain in words. In the following video smuggled out of Syria you can see the bodies of the victims. This video is extremely graphic so please be forewarned.

There is now proof of a rising Iranian presence inside Syria. The Syrian president is being advised by Iran on how to handle the crisis.

Now Iran is also providing technical and personnel support, according to a senior diplomat. Iran has a lot at stake in the region and now that the United States is diminishing their role in the region we can look to see Iran fill this vacuum.

There is only one thing that all of these situations have in common. Iran. Iran has a lot to gain from instability in the Middle East, particularly Iraq. The Iranians are without a doubt meddling in the political affairs in Iraq and one could go as far as to assume that the Iraqi prime minister is a puppet for Iran.

When you couple all of this with Iran’s nuclear weapons development and their recent interest in naval exercises it is not a far jump to assume they are gearing up to run the Middle East.

If we do not act soon to mitigate this Iranian power play we will be dealing with a very strong and aggressive regime. Iran is seeking to radicalize the region along with groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and various others.

While President Obama has done a very poor job at implementing policies geared towards the Middle East it doesn’t appear he is alone. Ron Paul is another candidate for the presidency with a very dangerous view on how Iran should be handled.

Paul would like to see us remove all sanctions from Iran and completely pull out of the region. I thought that we didn’t negotiate with terrorists? The fact of the matter is that if we don’t assert dominance in the region someone will. Do we really want that? Iran will take over control of the region; it is not a question of if but when.

I fully understand that our nation is war tired and there are a lot of people who want us out of the Middle East. This is a mistake. People like to think that all of this violence is their problem and it is in their countries. This is true but we must not forget that a little more than a decade ago this violence was visited on our shores and we are no safer now.

The only question is, what are we going to do about it?
