Middle East: Final showdown?

Posted: October 23, 2015 in Uncategorized

Wednesday evening I went and see Jonathan Pain, author of the Pain Report and often presenting on Bloomberg, CNBC etc.

It is actually comforting to see my theory fully supported from such a famous presenter.

Interesting he has my same take on the Middle East that something bigger than the usual Middle East war is brewing….a final showdown between Iran (backed by Russia and armed by Russia/China and Saudi and the Gulf States alliance backed by the US and the West.

To add things to the fire (as if it was needed) two uneasy comments.

Saudi Foreign Minister ” We wish that Iran would change its policies and stop meddling in the affairs of other countries in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. we will make sure  that we confront Iran’s action and shall use all our political, economical and military powers to defend our territories and people”.

Qatar even threaten to intervene directly  to hasten Syria’s Assad Government. But bombing Syrian troops would probably kill Iranian and Russian soldiers.

Why “hasten” the fall? Iran has already the strongest army in the Middle East (bar Turkey, part of NATO) and now with the nuclear agreement with the US can start export again and spend money on its conventional military (such as air force) and so getting even more powerful in the future.

Iran and Russia are not famous for having red lines crossed and do nothing about it.

I do not believe in prophecies, but strangely all Armageddon prophesies from the main Western religions do agree in one thing …the final showdown will be in Damascus/Syria. Quite eerie.
