An impotent and besieged Iran is what everyone wants. An Iran that is isolated and withdrawn is absolutely perfect.
This way, the Brits can harvest Iranian oil out of the Caspian, and push Iranian territorial claims in the Caspian Sea down from 50% guaranteed by international treaties, to 12% -- and Iran has to eat it.This way, Russia can re-extend its sphere of influence into Central Asia, and draw in recently ‘independent’ states like Farsi speaking Tajikistan, neighboring Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan …home to many legendary Persian Poets back under its economic and political control. The Central Asian Union is not more (it was dissolved a few years ago), having been replaced by the Eurasian Union (with a new charter) – with Russia and Kazakhstan at its core.
And now, in Iraq and Afghanistan …the U.S. and its allies are putting in place long-term strategic holds (military bases, long-term resource contracts, etc.) …that have, as a major consequence, an insulating effect ...moderating Iranian economic and political influence.
As the “war against Iran” takes on an increasingly clandestine posture, with General Petraeus, now in as the Director of Central Intelligence, it seems to me that this war is being carefully designed with one primary goal: to isolate Iran, and contain the influence of the regime. But could it be that they do not have ‘regime change’ as a primary goal? Is a perpetually, paranoid, defensive regime in Iran – at war with its own people tje real goal here? Are they fooling Iranians – when they talk about freedom and democracy?
