Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan: A Sign of the Future?

Updated on June 27, 2011

Is it too early to forecast? Is the handwriting now on the wall? Has all of the American efforts been in vain in life and billions?

Maybe, just maybe. As America finally tosses in the towel and leaves Afghanistan and Iraq by 2014, already the Iranian government is befriending the countries and establishing a firmer foothold to become a major player in this immediate area. Despite the disdain of America's Obama, both leaders of Afghanistan and Pakistan have met with Iran's President Ahmadinejad to resolve issues after America leaves either country. What issues would those be of Iran's? Iran has been meddling in Iraq's politics and society for well over a year and you can be sure this will increase in the year or two. Now, they seek to establish firm friendships with the group for the future. It is a slap in Obama's face and American aid, yet, the countries involved seem to have no moral qualms about it.

The US will withdraw most of its Iraqi troops by the end of 2011 and 33,000 from Afghanistan by mid- 2012. You just know by this latter date, the good we tried to do there will be unraveling like frickin' yo-yo. Iran has been pressing Afghanistan and Pakistan to break away from America. These countries also agreed to reject further foreign interference and Pakistan went further suggesting that the bond between Iran and Pakistan was historic and strong. And, how much money does Iran give freely to Pakistan???

Meanwhile, there may be a rumor of war soon between Turkey and Syria and Iran. Iran recently began their 10 day wargame, Mohammad War Games 6 in the Red Sea. Syria's 4th Division has been massing armor close to the Turkish-Syrian border as thousands of Syrians flee the Assad dictatorship. Turkey and the US has responded by massing Turkish troops and the CV USS Enterprise. Iran has disclosed its first bomb proof underground missile silo with a a Shahab-3 ballistic missile. The Iranian submarines have been tracking the USS Bush. Iran wants to convey the message that if Syria is attacked, Iranian missiles, like the Saijil-2 has a range of 2,000 kilometers and can reach any point in the Middle East, and that Hezbollah has many Iranian missiles to launch on Israel.

This kind of bravado by both sides are a recipe for a regional war. It has happened before.
