Curbing Iran's ambitions in the Middle East

Post  GirlBye on Tue Nov 13, 2018 4:27 pm




ANALYSIS/OPINION:


Today, international attention is heavily focused on restraining Iran’s aspiration to develop nuclear weapons. Tehran, however, is using a large portion of its resources to increase its power by creating a continental corridor of terror, running from Tehran to the Mediterranean Sea. Syria is a critical piece of this corridor.


Iran and Syria recently signed a military cooperation agreement cementing Iran’s active and expanding presence in Syria. Whether it be Iranian soldiers, militias, or other proxies — Iran’s consolidation in Syria will soon be a fait accompli. The international community must go beyond merely condemning Iran’s nuclear aspirations. The international community must prioritize combatting Iran’s movements to enlarge its footprint in the region and ultimately destabilize it.


The United States faces a complex set of threats around the world. From North Korea’s nuclear ambitions to Russia’s pursuit of dominance on the world stage, there is no shortage of threats demanding America’s attention. Now we add this: the terrestrial border between the West and radical Islam is closing in on the border of the Golan Heights. Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, faces the reality of Syrian forces on their northern border who are controlled and emboldened by Iran.


If Iran’s plan comes to fruition, the border of the Golan Heights will begin to look like Lebanon, where Iranian-backed militias have taken over the border and surrounding towns. Iranian concentration of the Shiite population along the border will increase, and they will continue stockpiling rockets to threaten northern Israel.


Iran understands that the way to challenge Israel is not necessarily through direct military confrontation, but rather through asymmetrical warfare — i.e. operating through proxy terrorist organizations and militias. These groups wreak havoc on the border and attack civilians, which heightens the tensions on the border. These tensions will drive the international community to push for Israel’s withdrawal from the Golan, which is what Iran wants.


The international community, including the United States, views the Golan Heights as “occupied territory.” In the event of a military escalation, Israel will find it difficult to attain international legitimacy should it need to explain her self-defense, in order to initiate a military operation deep into Syrian territory against Iranian aggression.

operating through proxy terrorist organizations and militias...

Hmmm...of course the big boys - Russia and the USA - wouldn't have spent the last 50 years doing exactly this would they?

(and, back when it was a "big boy", the UK as well.)
